Campfire Cheese Hash Brown Packets Recipe

Campfire Cheese Hash Brown Packets Recipe from Taste of Home

I didn't follow the recipe exactly but these were great! I added more cheese than called for, but didn't top with any cheese at the end. I added some diced onion and butter to the potato mixture. These were awesome. I will definitely make them again! Easy to tweak with different ingredients. These would be great with breakfast sausage (links maybe) or polish sausage in them! Great for breakfast or dinner.

Rocky Road Ice Cream

Rocky Road Ice Cream from allrecipes magazine

One of the reviews in the magazine said this would make an excellent chocolate ice cream on it's own, so I tried it and was really disappointed. Flavor was not great at all. Will not make this again.

Miniature Cheesecakes

Miniature Cheesecakes from

These were terrible! I followed other reviews and omitted the nutmeg and doubled the vanilla. These still had no taste, and were dry. Maybe needed the sour cream topping that cheesecake usually has. Totally disappointing and I definitely would not make these again.

Katie Lee's Beef Stroganoff

Katie Lee's Beef Stroganoff from Every Day with Rachael Ray Magazine

This was incredible! Next time I will omit the salt entirely and add some near the end. It was a bit too salty. I also would double the mushroom amount (personal preference). I used brandy because that is what I had on hand- and I think I would use a little more than called for. This was by far THE best stroganoff recipe I have ever tried. I served it over egg noodles but it would be great with rice as well. I will have to try to more of Katie Lee's recipes- this is the first one of hers I've tried. I will definitely make this again. I also made some homemade tv dinners by freezing the leftovers.
