Hellmann's® Leftover Turkey Casserole

Reviewed: Nov. 30, 2013
This was so so, I really wanted to like it, they advertised the heck out of this recipe around here on the radio, but I think it needs less mayo. If you are a mayo fan then maybe this is for you. All I can taste is mayo, my husband said it was not that bad and ate it, my kids well one ate some, the other hated it. The mayo with the mash potato part was the one that was overkill, the bottom of the pie was not too bad. It did seem a little dry, maybe a little broth or something as well mixed in would make it more moist.

Downeast Maine Pumpkin Bread

Reviewed: Oct. 5, 2013
I thought it was great. I did not have three loaf pans, so I used one bundt pan and one loaf pan! it was gone in no time between friends dropping by and work. This base was perfect, I truly thought it worked well. I am adding cranberries and nuts this time, but the base recipe was great. Thanks so much! love pumpkin!!!!! To the alteration people, create your own recipe so we can all try it and tweak the heck out of it.

Taco Casserole

Reviewed: Aug. 5, 2012
Well when I first made this, I thought it was very good, and very quick. I tried to stay as close to the original recipe as possible. The only change was the crush chips, I did add them to each persons helping after cooking. I have some picky eaters. This was great and I have made it again and really you can adapt this based on what you have on hand, ex: Doritos for tortilla chips, Salsa for tomatoes etc, still great. My best comment is - this is a meal I love better as leftovers, I don't know if it is the flavors blending overnight , but super yummy the next day. Thanks!

Barbecue Bacon Cheeseburger Meatloaf

Reviewed: Jul. 24, 2012
I thought it was good, my kids ate it, but my husband said it was alright, he thought the BBQ sauce made it sweet. I will definitely try it again. I will use a different BBQ sauce next time. Nice for a change from the regular old meatloaf.

Mom's Chicken Cacciatore

Reviewed: Jun. 18, 2012
GREAT! I have to say this, if you are changing more then two main ingredients, or techniques in a recipe, Just write your own recipe and post it and let us all review your recipe. I wants reviews on the recipe I see there in print, not huge modifications - its no longer "that recipe". There is a huge list of Chicken cacciatore recipes, get one closer to what you want to make. This was great as posted, thanks to the original poster.

Big Soft Ginger Cookies

Reviewed: Dec. 22, 2011
This is one of those recipes, the title says it all. These are SOFT ginger cookies, too soft for me, it is like your still eating dough and that was at 8 minutes and even 10 minutes. Just too soft , but on another note, the spice in it is perfect for my liking so I will try to figure out how to get these crunchy without over baking. I did refrigerate the dough and the dough was fine to work with. I would not flatten these too much unless you make them BIG and thick, they are like round bendy disks when flattened because they are SOFT. I have no idea how people store these unless you put them between parchment paper as they are so soft they tend to stick to one another. I did everything like the recipe said and they taste GREAT, just way to soft for my liking, also who ever's picture is shown, did something I am not aware of because they do not turn out like that picture at all. I need to find that persons reviews as those cookies look awesome.

Hot Pepper Sauce - A Trinidadian Staple

Reviewed: Aug. 17, 2011
Wow, I feel just like the other reviewers, great taste/flavor to go with the heat. My husband likes the hot sauce in the family and I usually stay away, as most are just fire in your mouth. I made this and it was accepted by everyone. I did not use Habaneros, I have a garden and tons of hot peppers ( 5 or 6 kinds) and was running out of things to do with them - this was fantastic. I really think the Mango and green onion does something for these hot peppers, we have had it on chicken, fried pork chops, with chips, I made a curry meal and we ate it with that. My husband took it to work for others to try, it is gone and I am ready to go and pick some more peppers. You will not be unhappy. Thanks for a great receipe. NOTE: I tried to make this and process it in a pressure cooker like I do other things, it did not taste the same, it was not bad when we opened the jars, but it seemed to be fermenting - tiny bubble inside, not sure why, or what was reacting with what - but it altered the taste, much better fresh - will try freezing some next time I make a batch and see how that does. WE REALLY LIKE THIS SAUCE.

Simple Salisbury Steak

Reviewed: Jul. 23, 2011
I will give this a four, I have made it twice, first time they fell apart in the frying pan - This time they were perfect. It was easy and I did fry them in a pan first on the second time and transfer them to a dish to cook in the oven. I used everything on the Ingredient list except browning sauce (DIDN'T HAVE) and I thought they were great. I poured the mushroom mixture on top, covered with aluminum foil, I know from other dishes this helps make them moister. They were good. I like this for a ground beef variation - it is so hard to find different things to make with ground beef. Thank you for a great/easy receipe.

Eggplant Parmesan II

Reviewed: Jun. 25, 2011
Very good. I love this reciepe. I must say though all the talk about bitter eggplant makes me wonder!! While I know most people can't grow their own, the truth be told from what I have read - Eggplant is bitter because they allow it to stay on the vine so long and get huge creating more seeds thus the bitterness. In every gardening mag I read it says to pick and/ or buy your eggplant smaller. This will help alot with the bitterness. I do have a garden and I have never had bitter eggplant - thus I never have to salt or soak it. If you buy it in the store, try to get the smaller ones, avoid the larger one. This may help alot with bitterness, or as someone else suggested try another kind. I grow Ichabon and Black Beauty - the Ichabon is my favorite. But back to the receipe - just fabulous, Every time I make this everyone even my kids love it. The baking also makes it easier to freeze the eggplant for another time. This is a keeper. I did bake the eggplant for 10 minutes per side - and figured it was going in the oven for another 35 - it would be fine. If you have leftovers, it is always better the next day. Thanks for the receipe.

Homemade Refrigerator Pickles

Reviewed: May 26, 2011
I give this 5 stars, but would give more. This is great for a first timer - and that is what I was. I used the cucumbers from my garden and I did process mine. They were fantastic. I did let them sit for 2 hours and it did make more juice, but I also doubled the vinegar,sugar and spices to make sure I had enough to process them in the canner. I think you could use any type of onion or pepper I used Banana peppers, cubanelles and some red cherry bomb peppers - because my garden has an abundance. We have already eaten one whole container. Super happy with outcome.

Dilly Cucumber Salad

Reviewed: Mar. 28, 2011
This is one of those receipes you just keep forever. I have been using it for over a year and I love it when cucumbers are in season in my garden. It is so quick. I sometimes make the sauce in the AM and it is ready by dinner - no need to wait 24 hours. In addition to fresh dill, I have also added caraway or fennel seeds to the mix. It is one of my favorites for the summertime.

Key Lime Pie VII

Reviewed: Dec. 31, 2010
Live in Florida and have had alot of Key Lime pies. I thought this receipe was fantastic. If you have truly never had a Fresh Key Lime Pie, it may be hard to judge whether this tastes like it should. The taste is right on. I thought it was very creamy and tart in all the right ways, everyone loved it and said it was as good as local restaurants versions. I would not change a thing - I debated between this and the one with Egg yolks and chose this based on reviews, I am so happy. A Keeper! UPDATE: I have made this for work, parties, family - everyone wants the receipe or asks me to make it again. This has to be the easiest receipe with the biggest results. You will not be upset.

Scottish Shortbread IV

Reviewed: Dec. 22, 2010
Every year at the holidays I go and get the large box of Walkers Shortbread, sometimes two. I have been searching for a receipe that would duplicate that taste. This is the receipe. Even my daughter who is 5 said "these taste like those cookies you buy and hide from us" They were great , I made them just as the receipe states, and then I wrapped them in a piece of Saran Wrap in a long block style and put in frig for a hour, then cut them no problem and baked for 21 minutes. Very good thank you!

Fried Okra

Reviewed: Sep. 3, 2010
I have Okra in the garden and it grows so quick we are always trying to prepare it differently. I liked this as I was able to do it without the deep fryer. It was so delicious. We enjoyed it so much we made it two days later again. I serve it with a horseradish sauce. This is great with fresh Okra never slimy, it is so crispy and crunchy - THANKS for tip on mixing flour with corn meal, this is a keeper.

No Frying Eggplant Parmesan

Reviewed: Sep. 3, 2010
Fantastic, I picked fresh eggplant from my garden and they were small Ichaban, so for me to make a small brownie size pan it took about 4. This was great - my husband & I loved it. What was even better, we had leftovers and both had it for lunch the next day and we agreed it was even better the second day. I can wait for more to be ready to pick so I can make this again.

Flourless Peanut Butter Cookies

Reviewed: Aug. 5, 2010
Well I hate to review things negatively - but my kids did not like them, I did not like them. They weren't horrible, they just didn't seem like a cookie. If you are watching your weight (atkins type diet) or your wheat or flour intake, this will do the trick for a sweet tooth - but I want the flour. These could pass for the same thing whether you ate the batter cold or cooked it. They were way to sweet and I put less sugar in to begin with - I actually threw the remaing batter out as half way through no body liked them. They also have to cool alot before you move them or they just fall apart - Did I do something wrong - I doubt it, its three ingredients - I used Peter Pan peanut butter , nothing funky - just wanted my thing I guess.

Summer Vegetable Ratatouille

Reviewed: Jul. 26, 2010
Fantastic! This is a great vegetable dish, understand if you or members of the family are not vegetable lovers, you will not be as excited. I used fresh veggies from my garden and did exactly what the receipe called for, except I had to use some can tomatoes as I only had a few fresh on hand. My husband and I loved it, will make again. As another reviewer mention, alittle time consuming on the cutting end, but worth it. Also I sauteed all the veggies separate as called for and they still had a nice texture when eating, I hate it when they all turn to mush, it is like eating a soup. I think that is a important step, and could drastically change the texture if you cook everything in one pot in one step, they all cook at different speeds. Thanks!

Okra and Tomatoes

Reviewed: Jul. 24, 2010
I hate Okra, that has always been the way with me. Hate it! Then I started a garden and someone gave me some orgaic Okra seeds. I planted them - I don't know why but I did and they came up beautifully. Well this receipe changed my mind on Okra. My husband and I loved it. I cut them fresh from the garden and did the receipe pretty much just as it is written , except for adding some creole spice and jalepenos for heat. It was fantastic, I can't wait to make it again. I am so happy for two reasons, one this great receipe and two - I didn't waste space in my garden planting this Okra, now what to do with the eggplants!!

Delicious Ham and Potato Soup

Reviewed: Apr. 4, 2010
This was fantastic. Easy and I really appreciated all the tidbits from others. I did have a ham so I boiled it and used the stock from the ham for my base instead of water and chicken brother or granuals. Since I was preapring this early in the day, I put the potatoes in last so they wouldn't turn to mush. The whole thing was easy and I garnished it with Sharp White Chedder and some scallions and used Rosemary from the Garden in the soup - Everyone loved it, none left. Thanks for a great new receipe for my left over ham!

Easy Mexican Casserole

Reviewed: Mar. 15, 2010
Sorry this was a no go, my kids love mexican anything and they were not impressed. It wasn't horrible, just didn't hold together well, it was more of a mess to dish out. I used chips as the receipe calls for, not tortilla's as I believe is shown in the photo. The chips just didn't do anything to hold this together.
