Pumpkin Cheesecake I

Reviewed: Nov. 27, 2014
I used a springform pan and made a graham cracker crust instead of baking 2. It was still done in 50 minutes as recipe states. Everybody at our Thanksgiving dinner loved it.

Delicious Gluten-Free Pancakes

Reviewed: Sep. 3, 2014
Pretty good! We used melted butter instead of oil, and 2 cups of buttermilk rather than powdered and water.

Easy Apple Coleslaw

Reviewed: Aug. 30, 2014
This has become a family favorite. Even people who normally don't like cole slaw like this.

Old Time Kentucky Bacon Milk Gravy for Biscuits

Reviewed: Aug. 29, 2014
Great gravy, but this recipe has errors so I couldn't give it a 5. First, it calls for twice the milk needed and would be very runny made as stated. 2 cups is plenty, 2-1/2 if you like it thinner. Also, I have never cooked a roux longer than 3-5 minutes. The reviewer who complained of burnt bacon taste should try greatly reducing roux cooking time, and stir constantly. As a general rule for nice, thick sauces made with a roux (fried flour) you should use a ratio of 2 tbsp. fat to 2 tbsp. flour per 1 cup of liquid. Stir constantly and have patience!

Mom's Country Gravy

Reviewed: Jul. 9, 2014
Boy was this thick! I'd always heard a basic ratio of 1 part oil to one part flour when making a roux, so I was hesitant but went with the 3/4 cup flour. Next time I will reduce the amount of flour. I took the advice of several reviewers and used bacon grease. The taste was good. Some people had said there was a strong taste of flour; that happens if you do not cook the flour long enough before adding the milk.

Homemade Ketchup

Reviewed: Apr. 16, 2014
Pretty good, but a bit too sweet. Next time I would reduce the sugar and increase the vinegar.

Roasted Brussels Sprouts with Cranberries

Reviewed: Apr. 3, 2014
I made this with frozen and thawed Brussels sprouts, and that may have been a mistake. I think it would have been better with fresh because these turned out mushy. But the taste was very good, and I want to make again with fresh brussels sprouts.

Sweet Mustard Chicken Bake

Reviewed: Mar. 13, 2014
I cut the butter in half as suggested by other reviewers. It tasted good, but the sauce seemed thin. Next time I think I would add a little cornstarch to get it to thicken and glaze better.

Slow Cooker Chicken Stroganoff

Reviewed: Dec. 14, 2013
Wow, this really works in the slow cooker! I've been making this same thing for years, but by tossing cut up chicken with dressing mix to coat, brown it in tbsp. butter and tbsp. olive oil in skillet, meanwhile heat cream cheese and soup in microwave until cream cheese melts, stir to combine, and then add cooked chicken to sauce. So I had some doubts about it turning out as well with the slow cooker method, but it worked great! The chicken pieces did brown a little, and I used 2 tbsp. butter not margarine.

Green Beans with Cherry Tomatoes

Reviewed: Sep. 26, 2013
Just OK as written, with a change from garlic salt to 2 cloves minced garlic (sautéed in the butter first) and 1/2 tsp. salt. If I make this again I would double the basil and reduce the sugar.

Cheesy Beef Noodle Casserole

Reviewed: Aug. 10, 2013
Worked great with Tinkyada Brown Rice Spirals with Rice Bran to make it gluten free. These noodles cooked perfectly as directed. The only diced tomatoes I had were Rotel mild with green chilies, which gave it a nice little kick.

Pepper-Crusted Beef Tenderloin with Chocolate-Port Sauce

Reviewed: May 1, 2013
The sauce was good, not sweet with a ruby port and 72% cacao chocolate. Be sure to use a quality balsamic vinegar. Taking the extra time to caramelize the shallot is worth it.

Honey Roasted Red Potatoes

Reviewed: Mar. 24, 2013
Wonderful! The only thing I did differently was to slice a small onion and break it into rings rather than using the diced onion called for. My guest and I both felt that the onion made the dish.

Crispy Rosemary Chicken and Fries

Reviewed: Sep. 4, 2012
My family has been making a similar dish for years. We use bone-in, skin on thighs and legs, carrots cut into 1 in. pieces as well as potatoes, and thyme instead of oregano.
