Ham 'n' Swiss Rolls

Reviewed: Mar. 8, 2011
This made a quick easy lunch for my husband and I this weekend. I took the crescent rolls and rolled them out into the rectangle and pressed the seams together. I then layered sliced baby swiss and slices of ham over the top within 1" of the sides. I omitted the mustand and onion (hubby won't eat onions). I then rolled them up, starting with the long side, sealing any open creases as I went. When done rolling it was the size of a sub sandwich. I sprayed with butter spray and sprinkled with parmesan cheese. I then baked for about 20 minutes to make sure the dough that was spiraled in the middle was completely done. It turned out yummy!

Six Can Chicken Tortilla Soup

Reviewed: Mar. 8, 2011
This is a super quick soup. As written it is a little bland but I add a little cumin and a few other spices, whatever sounds good to me that day, to help liven it up a bit. I usually buy a rotisserie chicken and use that instead of canned chicken. I love making this to have on hand for my weekly lunches along with a salad. I will make a batch and freeze the leftovers.

Slow Cooker Shredded Venison for Tacos

Reviewed: Mar. 8, 2011
Since I have a freezer full of Venison I was looking for creative ways to use it. I had a 1-3/4 lb. roast and cooked it per the directions. Much to my surprise, after the time in the slow cooker the roast was no where near tender enough to shred with a fork. I had to put it in the pressure cooker for about 1/2 hour-ish to make it shreddable. I then seasoned with the remaining taco seasoning. I guess we're spoiled with ground beef in our tacos. We didn't care much for this. Even my deer hunting venison-lovin' husband wasn't a fan. Sorry.

Marjoram Green Beans

Reviewed: Mar. 8, 2011
I followed the recipe to a T and they were just ok at best. The marjoram didn't lend much flavor to the overall dish. My beans were fresh as fresh can be from a grocery store and the beans themselves didn't have great flavor. It's hard to find good tasting fresh vegetables anymore (no fault of the recipe), even when they are in season. Maybe I'll try these again in the fall with fresh locally grown fresh picked beans instead of grocery store beans.

Pineapple Chicken Tenders

Reviewed: Mar. 8, 2011
I marinaded my chicken tenderloins over night expecting some awesome tasting tender chicken. I grilled on my George Foreman-type grill and the marinade stuck to the non-stick surface. The chicken was tender but the flavor just was not there. It was bland and missing something. I don't think I make this recipe again. Sorry.

Sloppy BBQ Joes

Reviewed: Mar. 8, 2011
I am not one to like jarred sloppy joe sauce and refuse to buy it. I have tried a few recipes for sloppy joes and have been disappointed. They usually have tomato paste, which I am not a fan of, or include vinegar. To me vinegar ruins a sloppy joe. This recipe did not dissapoint. The only change I made was to the ketchup. I used 1/2 ketchup and 1/2 our favorite barbeque sauce (Bull's Eye). I especially like that it does not call for onions and peppers (hubby won't eat 'em) and still had excellent flavor. This recipe is delicious. Definitely a keeper. Thanks Laurie Hauser!

Original Recipe French Toast

Reviewed: Feb. 5, 2011
I was looking for a simple french toast recipe and came across this. I normally use every ingredient listed in this recipe, subbing Texas toast for the bread, but have never actually measured ingredients. I just add what I think looks good. This time I followed this to a T and it came out very nice. I did use the Texas toast again this time because that is what I had on hand for french toast. And since this calls for a sweeter bread I added 1 T of sugar to the wet ingredients, but we don't use syrup. If you can't find the bread called for in this recipe I DO recommend using the Texas toast. Thicker bread will not cause the toast to be soggy. Day old is even better. All in all this will be my go-to recipe for French Toast for now on.

Sausage and Egg Casserole

Reviewed: Feb. 2, 2011
I was looking for an easy breakfast recipe to use up some of my husband's venison sausage and some day old dried up bread and I chose this. Since I wanted to make this today I only let it set in the refrigerator for two hours before baking. It turned out great - so if you are on a time crunch and don't have 8 hours or overnight give this dish a try. I did omit the salt since I'm trying to watch our intake. It didn't need it at all. I think the seasoning from the sausage and the sodium in the cheese was enough to give this dish plenty of flavor without the added salt. I did use finely shredded 2% colbyjack cheese. This dish was very tasty.

Quick and Easy Home Fries

Reviewed: Jan. 17, 2011
Good basic fried potato recipe. I find that adding a little canola or vegetable oil along with the butter will help crisp up the potatoes. Butter alone burns easily leaving the potatoes with an unpleasant look. I have better luck without using the lid.

Coconut Macaroons III

Reviewed: Dec. 28, 2010
These are very simple to make. I tried this recipe as well as the one off the Baker's coconut package which called for sugar instead of the sweetened condensed milk. I prefered the Baker's recipe, I think the milk tends to leave and aftertaste. But still a tasty recipe.

Joey's Peanut Butter Cookies

Reviewed: Oct. 5, 2010
After reading the submitter's caption on this recipe I was hoping my search for the perfect peanut butter cookie had come to an end. I was looking for a chewy-on-the-inside and crisp-on-the-outside cookie and this turned out cake-like. Even though this called for a whole cup of peanut butter, the peanut butter flavor didn't shine through enough for us. If you like a super soft cookie then this is the one for you. Not a bad cooke, just not one of my favorites.

Jan's S'mores Campfire Cookies

Reviewed: Sep. 2, 2010
Since we go camping and what better snack to make while camping than s’mores I couldn’t wait to try this recipe when I saw it. I made these little gems last night following some of the tips from Dianne and MySweetCreations. I, too, baked in muffin tins for about 10 minutes and used a measuring spoon to put an indent in the center and then added my marshmallows and milk chocolate chips. It sure seems like you would be able to fit more than three or four mini marshmallows and a few chocolate chips into the bigger muffin size cookie but nope – I tried! Once filled I put them back in the oven for about 5-7 minutes. I also made a few of the mini muffin size but didn’t bake quite as long. Be sure not to bake the marshmallows too long or they will puff up too much and then sink when they come out of the oven. My cookies turned out real cute. I had to try them as soon as they came out of the oven. My DH liked them but to be honest I wasn’t that impressed with them. But I let them cool and then put them in a sealed container and left them on the counter over night. When I got home from work today they were almost gone! DH had eaten most of them! So I tried one again and OMG! They were scrumptious. While DH enjoyed them right out of the oven and all day long, I liked them best after they had sat. Go figure. Thanks for the fun treat! Now I wish I had made more to share this weekend!

Butter Brickle Frozen Delight

Reviewed: Jul. 20, 2010
Absolutely scrumptious! This is great to keep on hand in the freezer for unexpected company. I've made this three times now and I have better luck with the flour/oat mixture if I bake it at 350* and keep a close eye on it. Ten minutes seems to work great. It starts to burn @ 400* for 10 minutes in my oven. I have tried it with both pre-chopped pecans and whole pecans broken into smaller pieces and I like the whole broken pecans the best because they toast better and they lend to the crunchiness in the layers. Using whole crushed graham crackers works better than the store-bought graham cracker crumbs also. My 14.4 oz. box came with three cellophane packs of graham crackers and one pack was the perfect amount. Do not press the crumbs firmly in the pan or you will have a hard crust. A light pat is all you need. The bake time of 6 minutes as stated in the recipe is perfect for the crust. I used a whole jar (17 oz.) of Mrs. Richardson's Caramel Topping, which is my favorite, just remember to save some to drizzle over each cut piece. It will take several hours to firm up so I suggest freezing overnight. My husband loves this recipe and gives this a five star! I also took it to work and one of the guys wouldn’t let me leave without sharing the recipe. Well loved by all!

Beef or Chicken Marinade

Reviewed: Jul. 11, 2010
7/11/2010: I used this marinade on venison kebobs and my husband said if I was rating this to give it 5 stars. Now if he says it's a five star that means it's real good! He told me twice while eating how much he likes this marinade. I can't wait to try it on steaks and chicken now! Definitely a keeper. 8/24/2010: Update - Since my last review I have tried this on chicken breasts and ribeyes and they were absolutely delicious. This is perfect for any cut of meat. I am thinking of trying it on pork now! This is now my go-to marinade recipe!

Big Al's K.C. Bar-B-Q Sauce

Reviewed: Jul. 11, 2010
This barbeque sauce was very tasty. I cut the recipe in half and it made a pint sized jar. I inadvertedly used the regular amount of molasses instead of 1/2 and it was still very good. It was a sweet sauce which put me in the mind of Sweet Baby Rays - my adding to much molasses may have contributed to the sweetness. Delicious on both barbeque ribs and chicken. I will be making this again.

Alyson's Broccoli Salad

Reviewed: Jul. 7, 2010
Yummo! This recipe is absolutely delicious! I first had broccoli salad at a well known restaurant on their salad bar. That dish was the main reason I liked eating there. Now I can make it at home! I used craisins and almonds I had roasted myself instead of the raisins and sunflower seeds because that's what was in my cupboard. I did let this set in the refrigerator over night and then topped with the bacon and nuts before serving. It is best to let the flavors meld, as the author suggests, at least two hours before serving. I have made it before and ate it right away and didn't care for it. Definitely let it set awhile. I will definitely make this again.

Yummy Honey Chicken Kabobs

Reviewed: Jun. 13, 2010
These are so simple and really tasty. I did not marinate the vegies and they were fine. I pressed the garlic cloves and added them to the marinde along with the chicken. I made 1-1/2 times the sauce to make sure I had enough for basting during grilling and I had the perfect amount. I grilled for about 20 minutes on the lowest heat my gas grill would do. The meat was very tender and juicy. I would make this again.

Dry Buttermilk Ranch Mix

Reviewed: May 6, 2010
This recipe is great. I love the idea of making my own ranch mix without the MSG. I especially like that I can tweak it to our own tastes. I like that I can tone the garlic/onion down if needed. I have made this twice now. I used my coffee grinder in order to grind up the celery flakes a bit and it worked great. The first time I mixed it with Greek yogurt, low-fat milk, and light mayo. The second time I mixed it with full fat sour cream, low-fat milk, and light mayo. I liked the yogurt version the best. I am dipping my celery sticks in it as I type my review! Thanks so much Kelly for sharing this recipe! I will be making this often!
