Sweet Restaurant Slaw

Reviewed: Aug. 16, 2008
My mom made this when I came to visit last week. She had made this for their friends who came to visit & told me how they raved and raved about how good it was, and they were right!! It tastes very similar to KFC or Lee's. She said it was so easy to make and not to be alarmed when you're done mixing it up and it seems too dry. Apparently cabbage releases water and that's why you must let it chill for 2 hours, or overnight as she does. Very good recipe. I look forward to making it myself to take to the next function I'm invited to!

Spinach Brownies

Reviewed: Jun. 15, 2008
Ehh. Nothing to write home about or make again. Followed the recipe to a T. It just didn't do anything for me.

MMMMM... Brownies

Reviewed: May 29, 2008
These brownies are good. I used the Milk Chocolate chips, as another reviewer claimed it would make them taste sweeter. Well, it didn't. I used the Kroger brand, but next time I will try Nestle or Ghiradelli chips and stick to the semi-sweet. I will also bake them a bit longer than 30 minutes since the middle is a tad undercooked....maybe 33-35 minutes. But, overall a good recipe!

Kidney Bean Salad

Reviewed: Mar. 18, 2008
Very good and simple to make. I always thought bean salad looked awful at family gatherings, but now that I'm pregnant I find it quite tasty!! And to keep calories down I used Hellmans Light, because it is the Best :)

Mom's Ground Beef Casserole

Reviewed: Mar. 14, 2008
The flavor wasn't too bad, but it just didn't have good consistency and wasn't very appealing overall. Will not make this again. There isn't even anything I can think of that would make it better.

Flourless Peanut Butter Cookies

Reviewed: Nov. 11, 2007
Wow, who knew cookies could be so fast and easy to make! My husband & I were just sitting around tonight and he said, "I wish I had some peanut butter cookies...can you make some?" So I found this recipe and just whipped them right up from the few ingredients I have on hand! I added 1 t. of vanilla. They taste wonderful. Next time I will flatten them some and make the famous fork marks for authenticity and bake them longer, about 12-14 minutes. Yummy!

Slow Cooker Chicken and Dumplings

Reviewed: Oct. 16, 2007
I've had better...I've had worse. Followed the recipe, except I used 1 can of biscuits and rolled them out and cut them like someone else suggested. One can was more than plenty. I added some spices because it absolutely needs it...salt, pepper, parsley, garlic powder. I put the biscuits in 1 hour before serving and they were still quite doughy. My husband thought it would've been better with noodles in it, but I told him that would be called 'Chicken and Noodles'! So, maybe I will keep this recipe, but add frozen noodles instead next time.

Acapulco Chicken

Reviewed: Sep. 13, 2007
Yummy recipe. I added some sour cream, garlic, a bit more chili powder and hot sauce to the mix and it was really good. Served it on corn tortillas.

Easy Broccoli Quiche

Reviewed: Sep. 5, 2007
Very Easy and Good. Even my quiche-phobic husband tried it and ate half of it....there went my leftovers I was hoping for! I took the advice of others and only used 1 C. milk, used only 3/4 of an onion, and increased the broccoli to 2-1/2 C. Turned out perfect after baking for about 50 minutes. I don't know why some people are saying this will make 2 pies. I used a deep dish frozen crust and everything fit just fine, so don't worry! Oh, it's even better with Oscar Mayer Real Bacon bits in it too! I've made this recipe 3 times in the past couple months for dinner!

Perfect Baked Potato

Reviewed: Aug. 4, 2007
I really liked this recipe with my modifications. It's the only way I will bake potatoes from now on. After washing, drying and piercing potatoes, I microwaved them for 5 min. each side. Then I put the oil and salt on and threw them in a preheated 400 degree oven for about 40 minutes. Absolutely perfect crunchy skin and soft insides.

Basic Flaky Pie Crust

Reviewed: May 14, 2007
This was my first attempt at homemade pie crust and it turned out very good, although the pie itself didn't set up! So, I just ate the crust. I used chilled butter flavored Criso sticks, but did not chill the dough. I used other reviewers' suggestions about just adding a tad more water and rolling between 2 pieces of wax paper right away, which worked great. I then chilled my entire pie in the fridge for about 30 minutes prior to baking, which was a tip I had read somewhere else online. I will use this easy and tasty recipe next time I make pie. Thanks.

Rhubarb Custard Pie I

Reviewed: May 10, 2007
I wish I could give this 0 stars, because it was nothing more than pieces of rhubard floating around in liquid, and I even let it cool completely. I followed the recipe exactly. So, I don't know what you all did to give it 5 stars! I don't even know where the "custard" part of the equation comes in either. Even when I mixing it all up, I was skeptical about what sort of consitancy it would turn out to be. It looked like rhubarb mixed with crumbs. The only good thing is that I used the flaky pie crust suggest by reviewer kelly h. That was good. Grrrr...

Black Bean Lasagna I

Reviewed: May 9, 2007
It's times like these I'm glad my husband is strictly a meat-and-potatoes kind of guy so I get all the leftovers! I followed the recipe to a "T", except I used oven-ready lasagna noodles, which worked just fine. I used Kuner's brand black beans with cumin for added flavor. Next time I make this I will skip the tomato sauce and use a jar of marinara instead so it has more of an Italian taste, but that's just my own preference. Also, I had never used the oven-ready noodles before, but next time I use them I might consider wrapping the dish in foil to bake, so the edges of the noodles soften up more.

Cauliflower Casserole

Reviewed: Apr. 11, 2007
Indredibly fattening. Incredibly delicious! I will make this again when I feel like falling off the proverbial diet wagon. Those crushed red peppers really add a punch for only 1 tsp. As others noted, there was some excess butter in the bottom of the dish, so next time I might use only half a stick of butter. Great recipe.

Sage Pork Chops

Reviewed: Feb. 7, 2007
Pretty good pork chop recipe overall. I gave it a 4 because I think making the gravy would really set it off and give it 5 stars. I didn't have any cornstarch on hand though. I doubled the sage and pepper (skipped salt as suggested by others) because I thought they needed to be coated in it. Mistake!! They were way to "sagey", but that was my fault. I guess you just need to rub a little on each side of the chops! They did turn out very tender and moist and will be better next time I make them. The "Baked Pork Chops I" recipe on this site is still my fave.

Baked Pork Chops I

Reviewed: Jan. 16, 2007
You know it's a great recipe when my husband tells me that I need to make these again soon! Make sure you fry them really well until they're golden and a bit crisp. Update: Be sure to use boneless chops.

Slow Cooker Beef Stew I

Reviewed: Dec. 31, 2006
Pretty good recipe. I'm not a big fan of beef stew myself, but my husband enjoyed it. I used the tips from previous reviews (browning the meat, McCormicks seasoning, etc.) and it turned out good. I used more celery than called for, 2 onions, and as many baby carrots I could fit into the crockpot! I only had to cook it 4 hours on high.

BBQ Pork for Sandwiches

Reviewed: Dec. 30, 2006
Great recipe. I used almost 2 bottles of the Sweet Baby Ray's BBQ sauce ('Original' and 'Hickory & Brown Sugar')since I had 4 lbs. of boneless ribs and we like it kinda saucy. Very good and very easy. Cooked 4 hours on high and the meat tore apart easily. Putting it in the oven is a must! Thanks for the recipe.

Grandma's Slow Cooker Vegetarian Chili

Reviewed: Nov. 11, 2006
This recipe was just okay. I accidentally bought chili beans instead of black beans, and also added a chopped jalapeno, cumin, and salt. Served with shredded cheese and crackers. Not sure if I will make it again though. Not great, but not bad. Good source of fiber though!

Campfire Foil Onion

Reviewed: Nov. 10, 2006
This is an awesome recipe! I've made it while camping and at home in the oven. The recipe is great as-is, but even better if you add a beef boullion cube in the center along with a few drops of worcestershire. It tastes like french onion soup! Great served with steak.
