Amish Peanut Butter

Reviewed: Jun. 7, 2007
This is more like a peanut butter topping for ice cream. It goes well on toast, too, though. Heck, peanut butter goes great on anything in my opinion. I also made a batch where I added carmel ice cream topping and mixed it together. Of course, that was certainly used for ice cream sundaes. This is exactly like a spread that is served at an Amish restaurant in Southern Indiana. Thanks for the recipe.

Tuna Noodle Casserole from Scratch

Reviewed: Sep. 15, 2013
I do not like hot tuna . . . at all! I usually only eat tuna in homemade tuna salad. However, this was amazing! My family loved it! I left the base recipe alone (mostly). I did add some seasoning salt to the veggie mix, took another reviewers advice and cooked the Peas (I actually used peas and carrots) for about 4 minutes with the noodles, and also added some seasoning salt and badia seasoning to the "gravy" mix. I also used French onions on the top instead of the bread crumbs. So, I say I left the base recipe alone because I didn't change anything except adding the carrots and the seasonings. I can't believe I am giving a tuna noodle casserole 5 stars. I used the skinny egg noodles and rinsed them in cold water after cooking so they wouldn't get mushy in the oven...it was perfect and yummy and I will make it again! I plan on trying to change up the tuna and use ground chicken and ground beef to get different versions! Thanks for a great recipe!

Colossal Caramel Apple Trifle

Reviewed: Apr. 18, 2007
I don't know in what kind of world one lives in that they can fit this recipe in a trifle bowl, but the massive amount of trifle that this makes doesn't impede the awesome flavor. I don't particularly care for apples, so I am trying to think of a way to adapt it to peach pie filling. However, as far as apples go this gets a huge 5 stars. The pudding mixture was great and I toasted my pecans before putting them in. Thanks for the great, big, awesome recipe!

Glazed Ham Balls

Reviewed: Jan. 30, 2008
I prefer my ham loaf or balls without glaze, but my daughter who hates ham loaf or balls loved this recipe. Both my daughter's and my husband gave it a 2 thumbs up and I have to agree. It was easy to prepare and it freezes well to be baked at a later time. Thanks for sharing.

Creme Brulee French Toast

Reviewed: Jul. 17, 2008
My daughters both loved this recipe, as did I! It was amazing and dessert like. We had it for breakfast one morning and dinner the next night. The only thing I will do differently next time is make double sauce for the bottom. Yes, it was sweet, but it was so good to dredge the "toast" in.

Broiled Tilapia Parmesan

Reviewed: Mar. 15, 2009
This is simply amazing and amazingly simple. I like to serve it with rice pilaf and steamed veggies. My boyfriend and I usually eat this at least every few weeks. I accidentally left out the butter and it was still awesome. A must try!

Baked Bar-be-Que Chicken

Reviewed: Mar. 15, 2009
This was pretty good and very easy to make. I did turn on the broiler to crisp it up a little bit. It was a very enjoyable chicken and even my 6 y/o daughter loved it.

Kentucky Butter Cake

Reviewed: Jan. 7, 2010
I made this cake yesterday and there is only a few pieces left. I did not have any buttermilk, but used 2% with a few drops of apple cider vinegar. I made it in a 9X13 pan and poked holes in it while it was still warm. I poured a double batch of the sauce in the holes within 5 minutes of it coming out of the oven. I couldn't resist trying it while it was still warm and I enjoyed it very much. The texture of the cake was very different after it cooled. I think it tastes like a really sweet cake donut. My fiance, 7 year old daughter, and 89 & 87 year old grandparents all thought it was a hit as well. My birthday is tomorrow and I am thinking of making another one for the occasion. Thanks for sharing!! 5 Stars . . .

Paula's Bread Sticks

Reviewed: Feb. 7, 2010
I have made these 2 days in a row. They are incredibly easy and very tasty. There are endless options of spices you can use to adjust the flavor to suit the tastes of your family. I do find that the cooking time to get them brown & crusty on the outside and soft on the inside is much longer than the suggested 10-12 minutes. It is more like 20 in my oven and that is basting them with a garlic butter about 1/2 way through baking. When my daughter can do quick breads for 4-H, I am certain she will present this as one of her projects. Thanks for the resume.

Mouth-Watering Stuffed Mushrooms

Reviewed: Feb. 17, 2010
I thought these were very good. I used the whole pack of cream cheese and added some crumbled real bacon bits and a bit of chopped onion. I had a little filling left over and I made about 20 mushrooms. I did chop about 10 stems in my mixture as well. I also topped with a sprinkling of bread crumbs. Just a few tweaks . . . but a great recipe that I will make again.

Sushi Roll

Reviewed: Mar. 30, 2010
I'm not a huge sushi eater, but I really did like this recipe. I took another reviewers advice and made a roll with bacon and avacado. It was my favorite. I will be making this again later in the week using shrimp. Today we used crab, bacon, and salmon.

Freezer Caramel Drizzle Pie

Reviewed: Aug. 5, 2010
This was so good! I could have doubled the coconut/pecan mix (same amount of butter) and been happier. I also wish that I would have put a layer of the coconut/pecan mix between the 2 layers of cream cheese/carmel layer. The flavor would not have been better, just more of the stuff that makes the pie great! Thanks for the recipe.

Chex® Pumpkin Pie Crunch

Reviewed: Dec. 20, 2010
My husband loves this! He even put milk on it and ate it like cereal. I will make this again, but I will double the butter/brown sugar mix to make it more coated.

Egg Noodles

Reviewed: Jan. 4, 2011
Make sure you cut these thin or they taste doughy even when fully cooked. Very easy recipe and very tasty...even when a little doughy! This was my 2nd time making the recipe and both times they turned out great.

Italian Sausage, Peppers, and Onions

Reviewed: Jan. 19, 2011
I am giving this a 5 because of the ease of the recipe. I did alter the recipe just a little by adding a jar of marinara sauce to the peppers and let the sausages simmer in that. I am sure that it would have been just as good without, but the marinara made it extra special. I will definitely make this again, as my husband was extremely happy with the dish and I also thought it quite good. This is kind of surprising to me, as I tend not to like anything with cooked peppers in it. The picture is spot on to how mine looked prior to adding the marinara, as well! Thanks for the recipe.

Sweet Potato Pie I

Reviewed: Nov. 15, 2011
I am not a fan of sweet potatoes, but my husband requested a sweet potato pie. I followed the recipe with the exception of using 1/2 brown sugar and 1/2 white sugar and baking my sweet potatoes. I was going to add a few tbsp. of flour as suggested, but I forgot. I just tried a piece, and must admit, it is surprisingly good. My husband said it was the best sweet potatoe pie he had ever had. I will certainly make this again. It was a huge hit!

Killer Shrimp Soup

Reviewed: Feb. 6, 2012
I tried to stay as true to the recipe as I could, the only thing I added was a little Johnny's seasoning salt and old bay seasoning. I also marinated the shrimp in some olive oil and old bay seasoning before adding it to the broth. My husband really, really liked it and told me to add it to the make again pile. I did serve with soft french bread, but think I would have been happier with crusty bread. It wasn't exactly what I was looking for, but I would certainly make again. I was hoping for something similar to Ruth's Chris shrimp appetizer. All in all, a very good recipe and it went together very easily.

Blue Cheese Fried Potatoes

Reviewed: Mar. 7, 2012
I doubled the butter...but otherwise, these were amazing. I had a few leftovers and am looking forward to eating those for breakfast. I would definitely recommend this recipe!

Brian's Favorite Sauce

Reviewed: Aug. 30, 2012
I just made this sauce for a family birthday party...it has been simmering for 3-4 hours and I plan to let it go the rest of the day. I did use alot more meat than the recipe called for (5 pounds ground round & 3 pounds Italian Sausage for a triple batch). I also put my diced tomatoes in the food processor....It is amazing!!! It may not last long enough to use at the birthday party on Sunday!!! This is deserving of way more than 5 stars. I will never buy jarred sauce again! EVER! Thanks for the recipe!

Salmon Patties II

Reviewed: Nov. 5, 2012
I followed the recipe exactly, with the exception of doubling it. I did make a mustard dill sauce to accompany the patties, but they were exceptional without it! Other reviews that give it a bad rating are expecting to much from a simple recipe. I am usually not a salmon fan, but I will be making these again. Even my 10 year old, who traditionally won't eat salmon at all ate 1 1/2 of them. I would give it 10 stars if I could, if for no other reason but it got my child to eat something different from our norm!
