I love good food! I do try to cook as natural and healthy as possible on a tight budget. It can be a challenge, especially in some parts of the country where the motto is "If you fry we'll eat it."
Gary's Stuffed Mushrooms

I don't know why I haven't rated this before! I have used this recipe so many times! Everyone (even non-mushroom people) loves this. I am asked to make it all the time, my husband gets offended if I do not make it for him when I am taking it to a party or something! A couple things I must note: do not skimp on the butter, and when you are serving these, spoon the butter over them before plating them!!! mmmmmm! And I have tried other brands of stuffing and I think it doesn't work as well, so stick with the Stove Top.

This was really yummy! My family loved it, I didnt have green onions so I used vadalia, and walnut instead of pecans...I wonder if it would've been better as the recipe said? I will follow it next time, as I will be using it again.

I made this for a friend who had just had a baby, she said they were licking their bowls it was so rockin' awesome! I loved it and as soon as the temperatures start cooling off I will be making this, I am going to attepmt to make my own tortellini next time though, soup is expensive to make! Definately a meal in itself!

This is the very best tasting icing I have ever had! I will never use another recipe! It taste so buttery! And I do not even like icing!

Awesome Sausage, Apple and Cranberry Stuffing

This really is AWESOME stuffing!!! I love it, and so does my whole family...the turkey gets neglected during the late night raids to the fridge for leftovers to eat this! I have tweaked it a little, it is great like it is, but I really think my tweaks are an improvement! #1. I bake my own bread, then cube it and toast it a couple days before, so it can stand out to get hard. I use 1 2lb loaf of whole wheat, and 1 1 lb loaf of white wheat. I use 2 granny smith apples, fresh herbs, and A LOT more stock (Also, It is fabulous with real sage pork sausage) I will never make any other recipe for stuffing! (my family would kill me if I did)

These were great! I will put them into my rotation! Stayed good in my cookie jar! I used the wax paper one of the reviewers recommended, worked great, no wasted dough!

Never got thick. Looks like scrambled eggs.

Perfect Sour Cherry Pie

Kelly Vossen's rating

Almost the pie I have been yearning for, I will attribute it to user error, or sentimentality, a lady who is now in Heaven, made the best cherry pie!!! I have wanted to duplicate it an this is the closest I have ever gotten! will make again! I used Northstar Cherries, that I picked. Too sour to eat and I cut the sugar a little as I wanted it tart.
