Yellow Squash Casserole

Reviewed: Sep. 19, 2013
This is very similar to the recipe I've grown up loving. My mother boiled the squash until it was semi tender, then drained it. She cooked chopped onions with chopped bacon and used saltine crackers and melted Velveeta. As I've experimented with it, I've essentially kept the recipe the same, but have mixed yellow and zucchini squash, and regular or the spicy version of Cheese whiz. It's good hot and cold and when I fix it, I always end up eating WAY TOO MUCH ,,, but it SURE IS GOOD!!!!

Wings In Cola

Reviewed: Dec. 29, 2012
These are great and oh so easy. I made them per the recipe the first time and they were good. Since, I've made it a few times using Dr. Pepper, less sugar, low sodium soy sauce and Cajun seasoning to add a little "BAM". Cooking in the crock pot is great for taking to work for pot luck day. Thank you for sharing!!

Six Can Chicken Tortilla Soup

Reviewed: Nov. 11, 2012
QUICK, EASY, DELICIOUS!!! I've made it for years and my kiddos still ask for it. I do have a few additional ingredients. 1 can Cream Style Corn, 1 chopped onion and 2-3-4 chopped garlic cloves (we love the garlic in it). Usually I boil a package of boneless, skinless chicken thighs and shred them. I like that better than canned chicken and it leaves me the broth to thin with. What's really nice about this is you can make a thick hearty stew like soup, or a thinner soup. Either way its delicious!!!

Yummy Sweet Potato Casserole

Reviewed: Nov. 9, 2012
I've thrown my marshmellows away after finding this recipe several years ago. Being from Texas, we like a little more "spice" so I add a tsp of cinnamon, 1/4 tsp of cloves and nutmeg. Half-n-half instead of milk makes this creamier too. It's a shame Thanksgiving and Christmas only come once a year.

Manicotti Italian Casserole

Reviewed: Oct. 27, 2012
I made this according to the recipe the first time (with the exception of mixing about half of the cheese in with the pasta mixture and the rest on top. It was great. Since I have such a hard time getting veggies down my kids, the second time I made it, I used ONLY vegetables in place of the meat. I sauteed chopped onion then added chopped zuchinni, yellow squash, mushroom, eggplant, some Italian seasoning just long enough to soften them a bit before I mixed the veggie mix into the pasta ... topped it with cheese and popped it in the oven. The kids dug in and NEVER even realized they were eating veggies. One for MOM!!! Thanks for the recipe .. it's a keeper.

Emily's Famous Hash Browns

Reviewed: Aug. 11, 2012
Never tried making my own. I like it as written, but we like a little spice. I tried adding a little chopped jalapeno or a picante sauce to taste .... MMMM good

Easter Breakfast Casserole

Reviewed: Apr. 7, 2012
This is such a wonderful basic breakfast casserole recipe. I made it at home and the family loved it. So when it came time for Easter brunch at the LTC facility I work at, I volunteered to make more. The first batch for 50 as written. I made the second batch for 50 a little spicier using Mexican hashbrowns, a 3-cheese mix (cheddar, Monterey Jack, Queso Blanco), and substituted 2 large jars of salsa for the equivalent amount of milk. My residents, familes and staff loved it.

Simple Scones

Reviewed: Mar. 31, 2012
Delicious and easier than I thought. I've made it several times. Try adding dried cranberries and a little orange zest. They some out tasting very much like cranberry/orange scones from an overpriced coffee shop. Thanks for sharing.

Delicious Egg Salad for Sandwiches

Reviewed: Mar. 31, 2012
This is a great basic egg salad recipe. I made it like written the first time. The second I added some dill pickle relish, a little celery salt and onion powder. I like a little "crunch" and the pickles added just a little zing. Thanks for sharing

Easy Slow Cooker Carne Guisada

Reviewed: Jan. 22, 2012
A delicious recipe!! I've cooked Carne Guisada for years using a more difficult recipe and this one is equally as good. We grew up having it over rice. For those of you who don't know good Carne Guisada .. the cut of meat makes a difference and chuck roast is the best you can use. Other cuts don't cook up as tender. Sure you can trim some of the fat. The "red" as one reviewer referred to is the chili powder. When you pour that off, you loose the flavor. The potatoes need to go in at first .. that's what thickens this up. For the reviewer who is upset with others who rate the dish after their changes. Well said!!! You can't honestly judge something you made changes to.

Egg in a Hole

Reviewed: Jan. 16, 2012
Oh my ... what a surprise to see this. As a child (a few decades ago) this was always one of my favorite breakfast treats and my kids loved it too. It never had a "name", but I've since heard it called Toad in a Hole. Not terribly appetizing, but cute. I still eat it today for a light supper and breakfast. Butter is a great substitute for bacon grease. Thank you for sharing .. it made me smile.

Hot Corn Dip

Reviewed: Dec. 7, 2011
This is one of the best dips I've ever made. The first time I made it I used the mild Rotel tomatoes/chillies, but it lacked zip. I've finally decided the hot Rotel is just right on the zip scale. Chopped green onion adds a little color and flavor. I do like to sprinkle a little cheddar/monterrey jack cheese on the top, but it's wonderful without it. Thank you for posting.
