Potato Skillet

Reviewed: Dec. 3, 2012
I just made this and we really liked it...I boiled 4 potatoes with the skins on, then cut them into cubes...I fried 6 pieces of bacon and used 5 eggs...Used a lot more cheese...I added onion to the potatoes, canned, chopped Jalepenos to the eggs and added a can of mushrooms to the whole mix...I did crumble the bacon before adding the cheese and it turned out great...Served it with salsa...Have enuf left over for another meal...Hubby could have eaten more, but stopped at 1-1/2 servings...I can just tell by a recipe whether we would like it and how to tweek it to our liking..

Easy Slow Cooker Meatballs

Reviewed: Mar. 23, 2009
I made these yesterday and they were very good....My package of ground chuck was 2 lbs. and I didn't increase the rest of the ingredients...I did, as one reviewer suggested, used only 1 cup of seasoned bread crumbs...They held together nicely...I got 21 meatballs...I, also, baked them at 350 for 20 min...Got rid of a lot of grease and that awful gray stuff that cooks out of meat...I used a can of stewed tomatoes, that I crushed up in my hands and a can of diced tomatoes as I did not have a can of pureed tomatoes...I also, added a cup of red wine to the sauce...I cooked them on high for an hour and 2 hours on low...This is the first time I have ever made meatballs in the sauce...I have made cocktail meatballs and Swedish meatballs...

Lasagna Toss

Reviewed: Mar. 18, 2009
I made this and it was really good. I ended up adding an 8 oz can of tomato sauce as it really didn't coat the penne pasta enuf... I also, made it in a 9x13 dish and it was all the way to the top before I added the cheese...I let it bake, then added the cheese to melt...I used more than an 8 oz package...I made this and shared with our neighbor whose birthday was yesterday...She is a real picky eater and she liked it...

Sausage Casserole

Reviewed: Jan. 31, 2009
I made this just as the recipe was written...The only thing I did, was I halved it as it is just the two of us...It was really good...We ate ours with salsa on top...This went to my "keeper" file...Plus, making it in a 8x8 pan, I was able to bake it in my toaster oven to save on energy...

Mini Pumpkin Butterscotch Muffins

Reviewed: Oct. 20, 2008
These are exceptional...The only change, I made, was to use 3/4 brown sugar as one reviewer noted...Also,I put the chips in the flour mixture so they wouldn't sink to the bottom and stick to the pan...I got 24 minis and 11 regular size muffins out of this recipe...

Lucy's Mac and Corn

Reviewed: Nov. 21, 2007
I make this, but I do cook the macaroni first and add the rest of the ingredients. I, also, just use half the butter and add a can of RoTel. Even my picky husband likes it and I have been asked to fix it tomorrow for Thanksgiving at a friend's house.

Burrito Pie

Reviewed: Mar. 3, 2006
I made this the first time it came around. I add a can of rinsed and drained kidney beans. I don't put the green chilis in as I don't think they add too much to a dish. I also only use 1-1/2 lbs of ground meat, and it makes a lasagna dish full.

Beef and Biscuit

Reviewed: Feb. 1, 2005
By the time I got done tweeking this, it wasn't much like the original recipe. I read all the reviews and took some tips. I added a can of diced tomatoes with chilis as I didn't think 8oz of tomatoe sauce was enuf for that amount of meat. I also put in green pepper and celery while browning the meat and onions. I also added a Tbls of homemade dry, taco seasoning and some garlic powder as I thot there needed more seasoning. I also added a can of rinsed kidney beans. As hubby likes them and it makes for a good filler and fiber. I used crescent rolls and pre-baked it for 6 min. in a 10 inch pie plate. I didn't need to as when I added the meat mixture, the crust started getting too brown. I didn't put the top crust on as I didn't want so much dough. I served this with shredded lettuce, shredded cheddar cheese, chopped onion, taco sauce and sour cream. I don't think I could have given it a 4 star rating without my tweeking, tho. I did like the creamy taste the sour cream and cheese in the meat mixture made.

Slow-Cooker Pepper Steak

Reviewed: Oct. 29, 2004
This is a new twist on a recipe I have for Sherried Beef and one for Beef Tips and Gravy. I always use the dry brown gravy mix instead of the bouillon because of the sodium. I did not put in the sugar and I used red wine instead of water. Also, as one reviewer did, I used the tomatoes with green chilis. I also added fresh garlice, carrots and mushrooms. I used stew meat and sliced it thin. I only used 1 Tbsp of the cornstarch as the dry gravy mix thickens it on it's own. I also did not brown my meat before. I served this over mashed potatoes and it was great. Always served mine over egg noodles and wanted a change. I let it cook for 2 hours before adding the onion, green pepper and carrots. Next time I will wait a little on the peppers and onions. I will make this again.

Orange Juice Chicken

Reviewed: Sep. 22, 2004
I thought this was quite tasty. I used 4 large chicken legs and baked them in my toaster oven. It did take longer to bake, tho. About and hour and a half. I didn't do the last step of making the sauce. I liked the taste of the combination of orange juice, onion, mustard and brown sugar. Will be making this again with chicken breasts.

Honey Pork with Peppers

Reviewed: Dec. 10, 2003
I thot this was quite tasty. I used diet Coke instead of water. I sauteed my onions with the pork, mixed the dry and liquid ingredients together. Put the pork/onions in my 1-1/2 qt crock pot. Poured the soup/coke and seasonings and green pepper over it and cooked it for 4 hours on low. Served it over white rice. I can't see why anyone would say it was bland. The sauce was a little thin, but that worked great over my rice. I did use fresh garlic too and only a green pepper and chopped my onion up. I guess you would say I tweaked the heck out of it, but it sure was good.

Slow Cooker London Broil

Reviewed: Mar. 11, 2003
I made this today and it was very good. The only changes I made was I added about 1/4 of red wine. I like what red wine does for beef. I also added peeled potatoes and carrots. Then I mixed all the soups together and poured over the whole thing. It only took 5 hours on low but, then I had marinated it for 3 days in the refrigeraor. The gravy was real rich. I strained the gravy to get out the onion bits. It was a little salty, but that was due to the fact I had marinated it in soy sauce and other ingredients. The meat was fork tender.

Hoagie Bake

Reviewed: Feb. 23, 2003
I have made this many times using refrigerated pizza dough. To keep it from being so greasy, microcwave the salami and pepperoni between paper towels. I don't use the egg, but put pizza sauce over the meat and cheese. I spray the top of the dough with non-stick spray and sprinkle Parmesean cheese, garlic powder and oregano. Use more pizza sauce for dipping. Great recipe.

Barbecue Beef Cups

Reviewed: Feb. 21, 2003
I thot these were really good. Hubby said they were okay. I rolled out my bisquits between saran wrap fairly thin. They went into the muffin cups nicely and didn't shrink back. Nor did the bisquits push the filling out like some had reported. Made them just like the recipe, but used 1 lb of ground chuck and 3/4 of a lb would have been plenty, but made a good sloppy joe burger. Warmed them in my toaster oven. Will definately be making these again.
