11-17-09. Homey, but good. I usually don't try recipes with cream of ANYTHING soup in it because I don't want my food tasting like it came from a can. This recipe is an exception. I couldn't detect the canned soup flavor at all. It's a good way to use up leftover ham & a couple potatoes. I mostly halved it using: 2 Idaho potatoes (cubed & boiled till just tender), 1/2c fatfree (with all the fat in the butter & cheese, it didn't separate) sour cream, 3T melted butter, all the soup, 1c cheese, 1/4t onion powder, 2c ham & not much crumbs & 1T melted butter. I think if I used even half listed, it would be too much. It is a dressed up sidedish, but it gets you out of making something new for a night! 8-7-11. Boy, 14, had two servings. VERY unusual. I must have used more than two potatoes the first time. Too much sauce this time, which I faked using chicken broth, a little milk & cornstarch. Two parts breadcrumbs, one part parmesan cheese, one part melted margarine on top.
11.12.03 ... https://www.allrecipes.com/recipe/33129/corned-beef-hash/ ... I'll get less corned beef next time. For hash, though, it was good. Use less potatoes or it will never go away. Ha.
I wanted to love this recipe. Afterall, fairygodmother rice is a great name. Unfortunately, it's onion-flavored rice with crispy noodles. I halved the butter & soup mix; & used instant brown rice. It was okay the first night. The rest was put into soups.
3.28.11 ... https://www.allrecipes.com/recipe/32385/best-lemonade-ever/ ... Really good. I doubled the recipe & used 3 cups sugar & it was just right. Two & a half was too little. 'Served it at a summer birthday party & got raves from kids & adults. Note4Me: April2012: Tried w 3c sugar& the 2c water it's dissolved in. Divided that in 2 jars = simple syrup. To each simple syrup jar: Add 1 2/3 c lemon juice & 7c water. Better, but may need more water still. May 2012 Think to each jar of simple syrup, adding 1 2/3c lemon juice & 8 - 9 cups water is "right". I'm adding 9 & it may be a little too "light". Try 8 next time.
As the other reviewers said, only butter edges & none in the middle. I served them at kid's summer birthday party. Great for speed, but a little too crouton-like for my taste. Some were more than just crispy. Those babies were hard. I did them 4-5 on each side at 400.
A dish I'd order at a restaurant & finish, but wouldn't order again.
Good way - relatively - to use leftover fish. I had leftover red snapper. I didn't add the butter, but instead added about 1 tsp horseradish, 1 Tbsp parmesan cheese, & fish stock to moisten. I subbed wheat bread crumbs instead of cracker crumbs, too. I also made patties instead of a loaf. No, I'm not very good at following a recipe. ;D 'Cooked them about five minutes each side. Be sure to make some cocktail sauce to go with them.
Only okay. I used half to one teaspoon lemon pepper & that was plenty. More wouldn't have improved the taste.
11.13.03 ... https://www.allrecipes.com/recipe/20119/pumpkin-bars-iv/ ... To reduce oil, I subbed 3/4c oil & 1/4c water. To reduce sugar, 1 3/4c sugar & 1/4c applesauce. I also didn't add the ginger & reduced the nutmeg to 1/4tsp. I wanted pumpkin bars, not gingerbread-tasting pumpkin. It was very good, but takes longer to bake. I'll try a larger pan next time or maybe I'll skip the water. I added half cup raisins, too. It was a good idea.
11.13.02 ... https://www.allrecipes.com/recipe/12209/pumpkin-crisp/ ... I messed up the cake mix part, my family loved it. Use less butter in the crust for sure. Nutmeg goes a long way so I reduced it to 1/4t. I didn't have evaporated milk so I subbed 3T melted butter & enough whole milk to equal 2/3c. I'll try it again without talking. That should help. Ha.
