Delicious Ham and Potato Soup

Reviewed: Nov. 27, 2007
This soup is superb! I used 2% milk and it still thickened nicely. Couldn't ask for better. No other changes were made but plan to make it again and add a little bacon. This recipe also works with lactaid milk.......For a most delicious clam chowder just replace the ham with a couple cans of clams in their juice and a few more potatoes to thicken. It was the best clam chowder I ever tasted! As I use this recipe so often, I now chop all the celery I purchase and keep it in premeasured zip lock freezer bags. Doing the same for a few onions makes this soup a breeze to put together. Also, if you want it thicker, just mash some of the potatoes. I suggest not to make and freeze the soup as it doesn't taste nearly as good that way.

My Meatloaf

Reviewed: Jan. 22, 2010
OUTSTANDING! This meatloaf was so moist and delicious. The only changes I made were to add an egg and a little milk in place of the water. I baked it at 350 for one hour and it didn't lose any of it's juices. It was oh so good! Thank you Marian Turgeon for such an OUTSTANDING recipe!

Steak on a Stick

Reviewed: Jul. 7, 2009
This was a major hit tonight! I used London broil in place of flank steak. I cut it into strips and pounded them before marinating. I only marinated for 4 hours as I was short on time. I placed the skewers on the grill for a few minutes on each side. They were very tender and juicy, couldn't have tasted any better. This is a definite 5 star recipe that I would highly recommend. Thank you Dominique Lynne for sharing.

Tonya's Terrific Sloppy Joes

Reviewed: Feb. 16, 2013
This is a perfect recipe for anyone wanting to avoid spiciness and still enjoy a sloppy joe! I followed the recipe exactly, weighing the ketchup which amounted to 3/4 cup. This is truly "simple, quick, and tasty" as stated in the introduction. Thank you RetiredDad9877 for sharing!!

Chef's Steak Sauce

Reviewed: Apr. 24, 2009
This sauce is FABULOUS! I made the recipe to serve 16 and wish I had done 32 servings. That would have given me 2 cups of sauce. I forgot to take into account that it would reduce to half it's volume. I skipped the cayenne pepper and jalapeno and used a couple drops of Tabasco instead. I let it sit overnight and served with steak the next day. This recipe allows us to have a steak sauce with the heat toned down. I plan to always have this sauce on hand. Thank you so much for sharing this recipe, Korikiss!

Jan's Pretzel Dogs

Reviewed: Jun. 16, 2011
AMAZING! These are ABSOLUTELY AMAZING! I was surprised at just how easy they were to make and fun too. I made half the recipe because there was only two of us. It was perfect for one package of hot dogs. The grandkids are going to love them. Thank you WFDM for sharing your AMAZING recipe and a special thank you for recommending my dip! UPDATE - Today I made the pretzel dogs with cheese. I used American cheese which I sliced with a pizza wheel, making it thinner than the dough strips. I pressed the cheese into the dough strips a little then wrapped the dogs. It was necessary to seal the edges between the strips so they would hold up in the water. This all worked well; but, when I baked them, the cheese oozed out the ends. I posted a photo to show the oozing cheese. They tasted great but my conclusion is they really don't need the cheese. I made these to freeze because I found that they freeze so well. I put them in the microwave frozen and heat at half power. They taste as good as fresh baked! Try these, you don't know what you're missing!

Sweet Rice

Reviewed: Jan. 13, 2011
SMOOTH & CREAMY! This is not overly sweet. I thought I had made it wrong because it wasn't thick like other rice puddings. I researched Arroz con Leche and found it is "soupier" than American rice puddings. I cooked it a little longer to thicken to my preference, and once it cooled, it was perfect. SMOOTH & CREAMY! Thank you crys7422 for sharing your recipe. I learned something new tonight!

Amazing Banana Sorbet

Reviewed: Apr. 2, 2009
This recipe needs an easy fix to be 5 stars. Use 3 cups of water and yellow food coloring. I made it according to the recipe and froze it overnight. The next day it was a gooey heavy frozen banana. I had nothing to lose so I added 2 more cups of water, yellow food coloring and mixed it in a food processor. Within 2 hours of refreezing it was a yummy banana sorbet.

Homestyle Stuffed Peppers

Reviewed: Jan. 6, 2013
YUM! So flavorful! I love having a recipe that you don't have to cook the ground beef first. Your review was so helpful, Jillian. I used frozen bell peppers from last summer's garden. As the peppers were soft when they defrosted, I skipped cooking them in boiling water. I tried not to stray from the recipe, but when I went to do the dishes, I found the egg still sitting there lightly beaten. It didn't seem to be a problem. The cooking time was right on and our dinner was FABULOUS! Thank you for sharing your family recipe, Jillian I'm sure you make your family proud!

Banana Trifle

Reviewed: Jun. 3, 2009
MARVELOUS! I made this recipe exactly as stated. It gave such a nice presentation. I crushed the vanilla wafers by putting them in a zip lock bag and using a rolling pin. When I dished the dessert out, I sprinkled the top with extra crushed vanilla wafers I had set aside. It was the hit of the night. Thank you CNM CATERING for such an awesome recipe!

Pull-Apart Easter Blossom Bread

Reviewed: Apr. 15, 2011
BEAUTIFUL! This has to be one of the best looking coffee breads around! It was a fun thing to make and has so many possible ways to flavor it. I used the "Cheese Filling" recipe from this site and spread it over the dough prior to cutting the strips. I was looking for a cheese danish flavor and it went so well with the raspberry. I used a pizza wheel to cut the strips and also used a pizza pan for baking it. To apply the raspberry preserves, I used a pastry bag so I could squeeze a nice amount into the blossoms. So YUMMY! Love that raspberry flavor! Thank you Sarah-May for sharing such a BEAUTIFUL YUMMY recipe!

BLT Bacon Bowls

Reviewed: Aug. 14, 2010
AWESOME! This is a BLT without the bread. (You could add croutons). I made a 6 slice by 6 slice mat on a piece of parchment paper. Then cut through the paper and bacon with kitchen shears, making 4 bowls. I flopped the bacon mats on the backside of oven-safe "monkey dishes" (little ramekins) and peeled off the parchment paper. I baked it at 350 until it browned (350 so my dishes wouldn't break). Then I put the mat of bacon inside the dish and back in the oven to get the other side browned. Be careful, it's hot! I used "ove gloves". It took a while and I thought it was a pain, but first bite it was OMG! So crispy and delicious! This is 5 stars all the way!! I will be making these again. Thank you KoalaFace for sharing such an AWESOME recipe!

Buttermilk Mango-Berry Crumb Cake

Reviewed: Sep. 8, 2010
AWESOME! So moist and delicious. I love the fact that different fruits can be used. I used a fresh peach and a cup of frozen raspberries. I can't wait to try others. The topping was incredible! It made the whole cake just perfect. Thank you Naples for sharing such an AWESOME recipe! UPDATE: I just made this recipe again but this time as muffins. I divided the batter into four bowls. One bowl had the addition of blueberries, another had raspberries, another I added cranberries and apples were added to the last. I now have a variety of muffins not to mention that some muffins will be a surprise combination. The only problem I see is I want to try them all! They took a little less time to bake so just keep your eye on them until a toothpick comes out clean. Also, no need to double the topping. I did and it wasn't necessary. Thanks again Naples!!

Home-Fried Cheese Sticks

Reviewed: Jul. 5, 2012
These are SOOO GOOD! I had the pleasure of making them when they were a "personal recipe". They are a favorite at our house. My review was as follows: YUMMY! Such a nice coating and they froze so well. I took them out of the hot oil as soon as they browned so as not to burn. I followed that up with a few seconds in the microwave to be sure they were done inside. I served them with "Clone of a pretzel dip" and they were so YUMMY! They made a great addition to our "dippers". Thank you mis7up for sharing your YUMMY recipe! I added it to my cookbook and it has definitely found a home at our house.

Double Chocolate Frozen Fudge Pops

Reviewed: Jun. 27, 2010
YUM! This recipe is a keeper!! I only had 2% milk but the results were excellent. After 20 minutes I added the chocolate chips as stated in the recipe. I failed to make sure the mixture had cooled. It didn't and the chips melted but I like it that way and probably won't wait the next time either. Thank you ying for such a YUMMMY recipe!

Cinnamon Swirl Bread for the Bread Machine

Reviewed: Aug. 18, 2012
OH MY GOODNESS! I cut the recipe in half as I only had one loaf pan. I will be buying another! As Hubby cannot have nuts any more, I replaced the walnuts with raisins that I plumped. He also requested icing on top; so, I used the recipe from Clone of a Cinnabon. Absolutely delicious. 5 STARS ALL THE WAY! Thank you MN Nice for sharing your recipe!!

Gingerbread Biscotti

Reviewed: Dec. 8, 2010
GREAT taste! I did use all purpose flour in place of the whole wheat flour as I didn't have any. The only other change I made was to lower the temperature to 325 degrees for the second baking. I put them in for 10 minutes on each side. The recipe was hard to follow because I had to make adjustments for the spices. They are written in fractions of a tablespoon and my measuring spoons are not that size. The ground ginger at 1 1/2 tablespoons would be 1 tablespoon plus 1 1/2 teaspoons...the cinnamon at 3/4 tablespoon would be 2 1/4 teaspoons....the ground cloves at 1/2 tablespoon would be 1 1/2 teaspoons..the nutmeg is fine! I hope this helps others so you don't have to figure it out. (and myself the next time I make it. lol) The biscotti is so good the recipe is still worthy of 5 stars! The aroma of this baking will knock your socks off! Thank you Cristina for sharing. It is being included in my assortment of biscotti Christmas gifts.

Heart-Shaped Coffee Cake

Reviewed: Feb. 10, 2011
FABULOUS coffee cake! The directions were confusing to read but easy to understand as I made it. I was going to pass on making it until sassyoldlady explained and offered her help. I would have really missed out on a great tasting recipe, so thank you Sassy! My intentions were to make it today but I stayed up and made it late last night. What a wonderful treat to have with our coffee this morning. I just warmed it 15 seconds in the microwave. I used bread machine yeast as it was all I had. I also added 1/2 cup raisins which I plumped first and mixed with 1/4 cup of brown sugar. Be sure to chop the walnuts fine. I almost didn't. Once I tasted it, I saw how important that was to spreading the flavor. I put the icing in a squeeze bottle to apply. Thank you Norma Hammond for sharing your recipe and giving us such a FABULOUS coffee treat!

Easy Chocolate Sherbet

Reviewed: Jun. 29, 2009
This is a very rich chocolate dessert but I am a chocoholic! I threw all the ingredients in a blender, then froze in a glass dish stirring every 1/2 hour. When it was done, I found it to need another 1 1/2 cups of water. I used 1 tsp. almond extract in place of amaretto. Thank you Warning Monkey Bites for sharing. UPDATE: I froze the mixture in popsicle molds and it was awesome!
