Sausage and Apple Stuffing

Reviewed: Nov. 18, 2007
Absolutely the BEST stuffing we have ever had! Even people who "don't like fruit in stuffing" really enjoyed this. Used 2 cups apple (half sweet and half tart), a 14 oz bag pepperidge farms herbed cubes. Also used a can of light, fat free chicken stock to replace most of the water to prepare stuffing. Would be awesome baked on pork chops. Wonderful recipe, thanks!!

Southern Style Thanksgiving Green Beans

Reviewed: Nov. 15, 2007
Delicious. Had no ham hock so I used half juice from the ham I was cooking and half water and added three slices of uncooked thick sliced bacon. Local fresh beans looked bad so I used frozen and they came out just fine. Very tasty.

Pumpkin Cream Cheese Dessert

Reviewed: Nov. 15, 2007
I thought there was too much crust, not enough cream cheese layer and the pumpkin layer had an odd texture thanks to the geletin. Trying to add the whipped cream as directed is a disaster, be sure to cool first. Most of it has not been eaten, I will not make it again.

Slow Cooker Mashed Potatoes

Reviewed: Nov. 15, 2007
Very good. I liked the potatoes before the butter was added so I put them out as is and had butter available for those who like buttery potatoes. So nice to have hot potatoes all the way through the meal.

Best Ever Banana Bread

Reviewed: Oct. 28, 2007
Very, very good! For 6 small loaves (6"x3") I doubled the recipe using half cup oil/half cup unsweeted applesauce, 4 med sized brown bananas, 2 tsp. vanilla, and 2/3 c. sour cream instead of buttermilk mixed with the eggs. Used only 1 c. white and 1 c. granulated brown sugar instead of 3 c. white. As suggested by another reviewer, I added the topping of sugar, nuts, cinnamon and nutmeg* prior to baking loaves on a cookie sheet at 325 for 45 minutes. They came out PERFECT!! Store in loose fitting bags, place a saltine cracker or two in each bag to keep bread from getting too moist. *for topping: 3 Tbsp sugar, 5 Tbsp finely chopped nuts, 1 tsp cinnamon, 2 generous dashes of nutmeg

Hash Brown Casserole II

Reviewed: Oct. 27, 2007
Beware of the butter. I would suggest only 1 tablespoon mixed with hash browns and none on top. I added chopped up leftover seasoned hamburgers to the mix and put french's onions on top. Cooked covered 45 min and uncovered for 15 in a lasagna pan. Delicious!!

Tangy Slow Cooker Pork Roast

Reviewed: Oct. 27, 2007
Doubled everything but the sugar, next time I will also not double the water. Cooked a 4 and 1/2 lb boneless pork loin on high 1 hour, low @ 3 hours (to internal temp of 150 degrees) and then turned to warm for @ 2 hours. Sliced very nicely and was tender and juicy.

Feta Chicken Salad

Reviewed: Oct. 27, 2007
I was thinking there would be too many veggies in this salad but I was very wrong. This is absolutely awesome. I used green pepper, sweet onion and basil and tomato feta. Left out the dill at first, added it to leftovers ... we prefer it without. Suggest omitting it if you do not like pickles in your salads. Thanks for a wonderful recipe! Would give it 10 stars if I could.

Scalloped Potatoes and Onions

Reviewed: Aug. 31, 2007
So creamy and delicious you will find it hard to stop "nibbling" on the leftovers even after you are so full you are bursting at the seams!! You can add and subtract a bit to suit your taste with this one. I added 1/4c addional onion and simmered the onion in 2Tbs butter/1Tbsolive oil(to prevent burning)until translucent before adding flour as suggested. Also added 1 cup Cooper's Sharp American Cheese, if you have never had it you are missing a wonderful cheese to cook with ... a real cheese that gets as creamy (or creamier) as velveeta when heated. I would give this 10 stars if I could. Only took an hour in a convection oven and it was golden brown on top and very creamy and tender inside. Thanks for this wonderful recipe!!

Slow Cooker Chicken Stroganoff

Reviewed: Jul. 10, 2007
Awesome! Try it with chive and onion cream cheese, the flavor is amazing.* I cooked the chicken for only 3 hours (stirring occasionally) on low before adding soup and cream cheese and it was done, very tender and delicious. I had no cream of chix soup so I made a small batch: Melt 2 Tbs unsalted butter over med heat, add 2 Tbs flour and stir until well mixed. Add one cup of milk and stir until it starts to bubble. Add 1 to 1 1/2 tsp chicken bouillon (1 tsp = 1 cube) and mix well. Reduce heat and simmer for a few minutes before adding to chicken. Add a little more milk if needed. Perfect for 3 large or 4 med boneless chicken breasts. *I use only half a package of italian dressing mix if I use the seasoned cream cheese.

Glazed Ham

Reviewed: Mar. 29, 2007
This recipe is for ham, not pork. It does not call for raw ham, I use bone in smoked ham and it is always amazing. I remove any ham that I plan to use for other recipes (that would not be good with sweet ham) and then add the sauce to the remaining ham and stir occasionally until done.

Easy Cream Cheese Danish

Reviewed: Mar. 11, 2007
Delicious with half as much filling and half as much icing as called for. Also added a dash of almond flavoring to icing, thanks for the tip Kaye Lynn. Can be topped with toasted slivered almonds.

Cheddar Beef Enchiladas

Reviewed: Mar. 11, 2007
Very good. Had no taco seasoning so I used spanish rice, added cumin and garlic powder to beef and added a can of tomatoes with chiles (undrained) to beef and rice mixture before heating together. Soup and salsa can be heated together until well combined before pouring over the top. To me these are baked beef, bean and cheese burritos with rice so if you don't like enchiladas you may still want to try this; the sauce is delicious but not at all a typical "enchilada" sauce.

Banana Sour Cream Bread

Reviewed: Mar. 5, 2007
3 cups white sugar is far too much, try 1 cup white sugar and 1 cup brown sugar. Added the nuts and one extra banana and had exactly enough to make 8 mini-loaves which cooked perfectly in one hour. To keep from having a soggy top the next day, store loaves with a few saltine crackers to absorb the extra moisure. 5 stars with the changes.

Sweet Potato and Apple Casserole

Reviewed: Mar. 5, 2007
Used a combo of suggestions and it came out perfect. Try this: Boil the potatoes in skins until fork tender, about 20 minutes. Cool, peel and slice into greased casserole dish. Using only 1/2 cup of brown sugar total, mix remaining ingredients except apples and butter. Top potatoes with 1/3 sugar mixture. Mix apples (1/4 inch slices cut into 8 pieces each) with the remaining sugar mix, spread over potatoes. Drizzle the melted butter over the top. Bake for 20 min, stir gently and drizzle with 1 Tablespoon melted butter if mixture seems dry. cook 15-20 minutes more. Great flavor combo!

Apple Raisin French Toast Strata

Reviewed: Feb. 20, 2007
Update: I had no 1% milk, which is what I normally use, and I had very little half and half. I looked up a sub for half and half and it said I could use evaporated milk so I used a can of evaporated milk with half and half added to make 2 cups total. I now see why some said it was like bread pudding. It is much lighter and fluffier using 1% and I won't make it with heavier milk again. Original review: As per other suggestions I used only 3/4 package (6oz) of cream cheese spread on pepperidge farms cinnamon swirl bread (no raisin fans in our home), 1 can of apple pie filling sprinkled with cinnamon, only 6 eggs, two cups of milk and 1/4c. margarine. I covered well and then used three bags of beans (bags of water would work if closed well) on top to weigh it down and make sure the egg mixture was absorbed evenly. It cooked at 350 degrees for one hour, covered with foil first 30 minutes to keep it from drying out. It came out perfect. Fluffy, not too moist and absolutely delicious. Can't wait to have it again!!

Breakfast Upside Down Cake

Reviewed: Feb. 14, 2007
I added extra eggs and milk and this was still far too dense. Not something I would make again.
