Strawberry Pretzel Salad

Reviewed: Sep. 2, 2013
I have made this recipe many, many times and never had a problem till today. Everyone loves this dessert and I'm expected to bring it to every family gathering! However, today, I burned the crust. I think from now on I'll heat the oven to 350 and leave it in for only 8 min. I also tried something new, as I'm making two today. I am using peach jello with frozen, sliced peaches. I'm hoping this will taste as good as the strawberry!!

Black Magic Cake

Reviewed: Aug. 23, 2013
Oh my, is this cake good!!! I made one change in the recipe, only because I always do this, even with a box cake mix. I substituted the vegetable oil for an equal amt of very soft butter (not margarine). I did make the mistake of using 8" pans as that's what I had. It spilled over a little bit, no crown like in a box mix. But, as I always trim the top of the cake, this was no problem. My room mate and I ate the scraps and couldn't stop! I will definitely be making this cake again! I do cake decorating for friends and family and usually use a box mix. I will be using this recipe for special people!

Grandma's Cherry Salad

Reviewed: Jul. 13, 2013
I wasn't that impressed with this. I could taste the can from the fruit cocktail and it was very sweet. Although my grand-daughter loved it, I doubt I'll make it again.

Chicken and Rice Casserole I

Reviewed: Apr. 19, 2013
The recipe was easy. I didn't have some of the ingredients listed and substituted with what I did have. It came out good except for one thing. The rice didn't fully cook. Next time I plan to use instant rice instead.

Bacon Cheddar Deviled Eggs

Reviewed: Jul. 14, 2012
These weren't as good as I had hoped. I think partly because I had no mustard to put into them. I also add cider vinegar to my regular deviled eggs. I may try that next time.

Easy Sugar Cookies

Reviewed: Jun. 22, 2012
My grand-daughter and I made these today and she says "they are super yummy!" We sprinkled colored sugar on top to give them an extra sparkle. We were eating them as fast as they came out of the oven. I'll need to consider making a double batch next time! I think I'd like to try them with lemon flavoring instead of the vanilla next time, just to see how they come out.

Stuffed Pork Chops

Reviewed: May 20, 2012
Although it came out drier than I had hoped, it was still very good. I did use prepackaged stuffing mix as I didn't have the celery and stuffing croutons. I used flour instead of cornstarch for the gravy, which was very good. This is something I would make again!

2-Step Garlic Pork Chops

Reviewed: May 2, 2012
I made this tonight's dinner and found it was very good! I agree with the other reviews, it definitely needs double the soup! It turned out that my garlic was dried out, so, I dusted the chops with garlic powder before browning and I also added some diced up onions. I would definitely make this again. This is one of those recipes that is versatile and can be altered to suit one's own taste!!! Even the kids cleaned it up!

Banana Bread

Reviewed: Dec. 23, 2008
I found this bread to be very dry and no flavor at all in spite of the bananas. I also got only one loaf, not two. I did not like this recipe and won't be making it again.

Hamburger Potato Casserole

Reviewed: Oct. 11, 2007
This was very good, my family loved it and, although I doubled the recipe, it was nearly gone. I give it only 4 stars because I think the amount of milk is a little to much, it was kind of soupy when I took it out of the oven.

Brown Sugar Chops

Reviewed: Oct. 3, 2007
I was afraid the pork chops would be dry and considered adding a can of pineapple. However, I decided to go with the recipe as written and it came out wonderful! The pork chops were very tender and moist and I could cut them with my fork. The whole family loved them. Even my picky 5 yr old grand-daughter cleaned it up.
