  1. Love it.. thank you I added a ranch package and garlic powder and it was amazing on my home made scalloped potatoes and ham.
  2. These are terrific breadcrumbs. So easy to make and so many uses. Not only for casseroles but on top of perogy too! Yum. I make own breadcrumbs too with my food processor and whatever bits of bread I have around including rye bread, brown bread, buns, etc. Add seasonings to taste or as indicated by other reviews. Yum.
  3. This is so very easy and uses only two ingredients! I used french bread and ran it for a few seconds in my mimi food chopper. Couldn't be easier. Thanks for sharing your recipe Darlene!
  4. I use this recipe all the time. I often make and freeze them so I have them on hand for steamed vegetables or casseroles. Thanks for posting!
  5. Also try this with steamed veggies such as cauliflower, broccoli or asparagi - it is definitely the best way of serving them...


I would like to let you all know that I am no longer able to review your recipes that I have tried. since they changed the site around webtv does not supprt zaars new site.I have a webtv not a computer and webtv does not support the new recipezaar site. so I will no longer be able to review your great recipes,nor will I be able to put my own recipes on here.Please don't think I wouldn't like to review your recipes,it was one of the nice parts of zaar that I did enjoy doing. So please forgive!!! I am Married to the same guy for 40 years,I Have 2 beautiful Daughters, who have given me 6 grand and glorious grandchildren. I love to cook,in fact you could call it my favorite hobby My pet peeve is telemarketers,Every time I get busy with my recipe hobby one of them will call and knock me off the web,and of coarse I waste precious time getting back on.I am disabled,so I no longer work,and have plenty of time to pursue my hobby. My best dish I make is Lasagna but thats just because I love lasagna.I am also asked to bring No-Bake cookies at all of our potlucks, and linger-longers at church.Meat loaf is another often requested dish I am asked to bring...... NOT MY meatloaf but .... My husbands. He is as good a cook as I am,He can cook anything I can cook, and I can cook anything he can cook,but some things I make better,and some He makes better...So we do a lot of compromising at our house.
