Grandma's Green Bean Casserole

Reviewed: Dec. 23, 2014
I wish I could do 4 1/2 stars. I really did love this recipe. However it was not crunchy or salty enough as is ( I like SALT though), so I did add a can of fried onions. I mixed half the can in and then the other half on top. That made it much better.

Slow Cooker Chicken and Dumplings

Reviewed: Dec. 23, 2014
LOVE this!!! It is a huge hit with the family. Only deviations I make - instead of adding water I add about 1 can of chicken broth. And the biscuits never cook enough for me (maybe because I'm high altitude?) So I have a crock pot that actually lifts out of the burner section, so I cook it on high for about 4 hours. Then I go through and I shred all the chicken. I take the biscuit dough, I like to get the jumbo packs of biscuits and butter, and I rip them in half and roll them in balls (it usually takes me about 1 1/2 rolls). I fill the entire top with the dough, and then I push them all down slightly just so they are wettened on top with the broth. I let it sit for another 30-45 minutes in the crock pot so the dough rises. And then I put it in the oven at 400 degrees for 10-15 minutes and it comes out PERFECT. Still nice and soft on the inside like dumplings but more filling on top like biscuits.

Grandma's Corn Pudding

Reviewed: Dec. 24, 2013
OMG!!! That's all I can say. Made this tonight for my first time making Christmas dinner for the family. Everyone LOVED it. Good thing I actually doubled it in 2 pans, because even with 9 cornish hens, potatoes, and green beans, it was ALL gone with 6 adults. I have now been ordered to bring it to every family dinner from here on out, including our new years dinner on the 30th. I've never had corn pudding before so cant compare it, but it was delicious. I had jumbo eggs, and since I did read a few recipes complaining about it being too "eggy" I only used 4 eggs. However that was probably the equivalent of 5 regular sized eggs so I do not think it would make a huge difference. I'm personally not a huge egg fan so I was a little worried but all it did was give it a good custard-like texture IMHO. I also used sweet corn for the whole kernel canned, and I drained the can first. A while into it cooking, I happened to look up and noticed my timer was frozen at 59 minutes (THANKS TIMER!) however when I checked on it an hour had likely gone by and the top was nice and golden brown. It also sat on the stove for a good 2-3 hours covered in aluminum foul while the potatoes and hens cooked but it stayed nice and warm and potentially set and became the perfect texture and consistency. I'm normally a salt-with-my-eggs-and-corn type person, but to me this was just nice and sweet enough that it needed no additional seasoning.

Cornish Game Hens with Garlic and Rosemary

Reviewed: Dec. 24, 2013
Made this tonight for christmas eve, first time making dinner for the family. I honestly don't think I've ever had cornish hens before, but it was a HIT with my family. My brother-in-law who said he had always hated them in the past really enjoyed this. I did make some changes. Since there were 6 adults and a toddler I made 9 hens, exactly what would fit in my king size roasting pan. First I melted some butter and minced some of the garlic, mixing it together. Each hen got a spoonful of that inside, then I squeezed a lemon slice (I quartered my lemons)inside the cavity and put that in, then my rosemary, I used several sprigs in each one, then another lemon wedge. Then I put some garlic and butter under the skin along with a couple thin slices of lemon. I added broth to the pan as well, I'm not sure how much since I eyeballed it but probably about 1/4-1/2 an inch deep in the pan (a lot haha). Since I had SO much garlic and the pan was crammed full I just threw a handful of cloves underneath each chicken and the garlic just floated around. I also doubled the wine and broth sauce I added at 350 degress. I read some people complain about it taking a lot longer and since I figured I had so much more I did 30 minutes at 450 degrees and then when it was down to 350 I was checking the temp every 10 minutes as I basted it. Honestly it was done within another 20 minutes, and I could of followed the recommended time and they would of been perfect. I am high altitude BTW.

Mom's Great Green Beans

Reviewed: Dec. 24, 2013
I'll be honest, I was not a huge fan. I love canned greened beans, was looking for something a little different for my first time cooking family dinner on Christmas Eve. I think the problem is I'm not a huge Worcestershire fan. I did only put half in like some people recommended. It wasn't bad by any means. I would of probably just rather had canned beans with some butter. I do wish I had of had bacon bits to add. My sister, on the other hand, couldn't really tell the difference, except to say she normally doesn't like canned green beans but it was just different enough that she actually liked these. My aunt couldn't really tell a big difference in taste either.

Slow Cooker Cilantro Lime Chicken

Reviewed: Sep. 6, 2013
LOVED it. I used a mild sweet mango peach salsa. Next time I think I will double the salsa. I think I overcooked mine just a touch, the chicken was a little dry. But the flavor was very fresh. I also added more cilantro than the recipe calls for, I used almost an entire bundle. Not that you can ever have too much cilantro haha.
