Taco Seasoning I

Reviewed: Apr. 27, 2015
This is the same recipe anywhere on the internet that you look. It has way too much cumin. I made it as written and the cumin ruined the meat. I only used 2 TBSP of the finished produce per pound of meat. I should have just bought the packaged stuff, butt we are gluten free and I like to avoid packaged items. DaleP

Apple Betty

Reviewed: Apr. 11, 2009
Last night other half comments that an Apple Betty sounded good. I took that as a challenge, and made the first one of my life using this recipe. It came out great. The aroma was wonderful. My apples were some Red Delicious, so not the best cooking apple, but what I had on hand. I baked for 50 minutes with the top of the pie plate at the center of the oven. The apples were done perfectly and the crumb crust was perfectly browned. The only thing I would possibly change is the amount of topping. It seemed to be a little too much for the amount of apple. I think 3/4 of the amount would be more to my taste. The texture was great, and the flavor was very true to an old fashioned Betty. DP

Margie's Sour Cream Pork Chops

Reviewed: Jan. 27, 2009
This was way too much of a vinegar taste. We like vinegar, but this did not smell or taste good. I followed the recipe as written,cooked longer than called for as we do not eat on a firm schedule. When I took the pork chops out, the sauce was too vinegary and thin. I tasted it and decided at that time to thicken it with a small amount of flour. I cooked the flour in for a few minutes, and the consistency was much better. The taste was just too much vinegar. I love Summer Savory, and would have been happier with just the broth and savory.

Extreme Banana Nut Bread 'EBNB'

Reviewed: Nov. 11, 2008
I did not want that much bread at one time, so I cut the recipe in half. The one loaf I made is very good, but did get too brown on the edges. Several others have talked about a lower temp, and less baking time. I will try that next time. I was looking for a dense, moist, flavorful banana nut bread, and this is it. I always have a few overripe bananas in the freezer, so this is a great way to put together a great treat.

Boiled Chicken

Reviewed: Oct. 24, 2008
This is a very good basic recipe. For those who say that it bland should realize that it is for the basic diced cooked chicken. You spice and season it as you make your final recipe. When I get a great sale on whole chickens, I get out the giant stock pot and fill it and cover with water and start heating it. I like to be able to go out to the garden and snip some fresh herbs. Whatever is growing and looks good. I like my final recipes with dark meat. Some (my SO) do not, so I bag up some different mixes and freeze them. The boil the bones some more and filter the liquid through a fine mesh filter. This liquid freezes into the best broth you can get. I really like to be able to put a bunch of these into the freezer before winter comes. It gives me the cooked chicken for taco, burritos, pot pies, chicken soup, chick and dumplings, etc. at a drop of a hat for a hearty winter supper.

Green Beans for a Special Occasion

Reviewed: Nov. 20, 2005
I love green beans, and wanted an easy recipe that can be made easily when entertaining. This is very easy and comes out very good. I always make any recipe exactly as written the first time, then I start my experimenting later. I did find that a sprinkling of grated parmesan cheese made this dish really shine. I also tried it with bacon bits, but I liked the cheest better.

Bacon and Date Appetizer

Reviewed: Jan. 21, 2003
Many here have tried frying in peanut oil. I use the microwave. When making large batches for a party, etc. I will start one batch in the broiler and then rotate the batches to the microwave and the broiler. Microwave really does a great job with bacon, and paper towels absorb the extra grease. They come out great, but there is really no savings in time, especially with a large batch. Love this taste of the sweet dates and the bacon.
