Homemade Mac and Cheese

Reviewed: Jan. 14, 2007
I had to try this recipe ever since I read the rating critizing it for being loaded with "fat" ie CHEESE... Duh, that's what Mac and cheese is about!! I made it with large elbow macaroni so the sauce got all inside the pasta... thru in an extra 1/2 inch slice of Velveeta and some white pepper, and jazzed up the crumbs by mixing the crumbs, melted butter, paprika, onion powder, salt & pepper and then sprinkling over the top. Very good "old-home" taste!!

Slow Cooker Barbecue Goose Sandwich

Reviewed: Jan. 6, 2007
So simple, so good.... the guys loved it with a little extra BBQ sauce added to their sandwiches. We cooked it just as it said with about 1 1/2 cups of Masterpiece BBQ sauce added at the end and then warmed thru. Makes a simple, homey, and comforting meal. I'll bet even our goose-hating friend would enjoy this recipe.

Potato Waffles

Reviewed: Feb. 8, 2013
Dear Wifey- I nearly flew to my waffle iron to try your recipe and the flavor did not disappoint. I did tweak the recipe (as I always do potato pancakes) by adding 1 tsp of onion powder and 1/2 tsp white pepper and omitting the garlic (and I use Russet potatoes)... The problem I can see happening to others (as it did to me), is that everybody's recipe for mashed potatoes is going to vary in texture and moisture... so my first two waffles turned out so tender I could hardly get them out of the iron. By the third waffle, I had added probably double the flour, used 1/2 cup of batter, and cooked it over 7 minutes. I have a great waffle iron (been using it for 30 years) so I know to have it thoroughly preheated and normally can cook any waffle recipe in exactly 5 minutes. I will definitely try the recipe again with either less potato or more flour because I love your idea... good use of leftover potato, reduced use of oil, fun to serve, and good flavors!

German French Toast

Reviewed: Oct. 17, 2009
Not sure what provoked me to try this recipe... I guess because I was only cooking for myself and I like eggs, cheese, toast, butter... Frankly, I will never admit to my classy friends that I actually ate this, nor will I serve it to my husband, however I'm thinking if I'd just had a date with a guy that took me to one of those crazy beer restaurants that likes to serve a burger patty in a taco shell and taco meat on a bun... then (in the morning?) this recipe might just bring him down on one knee!! Ha!... good in a mom's comfort food sorta way. I used a Cheddar cheese and maple syrup.

Stuffed Turkey Legs

Reviewed: Jan. 14, 2008
These didn't knock my socks off, but they were very tasty for a weeknight dinner.. Like others have said: Cut the oil in half and the salt to 1 tsp or less. To make it easy, I just sauted and stewed everything together in a close fitting pot with cover, and on top of the stove. Skip the stuffing business too. I'll make this again.

Creamy Cheesy Scrambled Eggs with Basil

Reviewed: Aug. 8, 2011
Surprisingly good! Serve alongside some cold poached salmon, a FRESH fruit cup (peaches!), and a special toast or muffin and you'll think you woke up at a Bed & Breakfast! Using a Teflon pan will help you get the eggs out of the pan. I also liked substituing sharp Cheddar for the Mozzarella and adding a dash of garlic powder as someone suggested. Another idea I like... is topping my sunnyside-up eggs with a few small basil leaves a minute or so before they're done... adds color and spice to them!!

Persimmon Bread I

Reviewed: Dec. 28, 2008
Make MUFFINS-- I rate this 5 because it's a great thing to make when you've got persimmons coming out your ears, but I would never BUY persimmons to make these. I used 1/2 brown sugar, added 1/2 tsp allspice and 1/4 tsp nutmeg, and then baked in paper muffin cups at 325 for about 35 minutes. Makes about 18 medium-size muffins. Perfect for snacking with tea or for breakfast. Next time I might add coconut, dates, or dried cranberries or apples.

Breakfast Pies

Reviewed: Nov. 7, 2009
I give 5 stars for it's versatility!!!.... I made spaghetti squash pies!! Really!... moist, touch of sweetness, lots of flavor... I sprayed bottoms only of muffin pan, then smooched refrigerated BREADSTICK dough around the sides and slightly in bottom and around rim. My filling: 1 link Italian sausage & 1/2 a small onion (precooked), added to 3 eggs, 2 T chopped fresh basil, 1/3 C grated Cheddar, 3/4 C precooked spaghetti squash. Made 12 pies... baked 25 mins at 375 degrees.

Swan's Summer Soup

Reviewed: Jul. 28, 2007
Fabulous, refreshing, and yet a satisfying finish to a hot summer day... freshness and quality of ingredients is imperative. Like others, I used prepared tomato juice to start, tomatoes from the garden, fresh (uncooked) corn off the cob, and threw in some fresh basil too. I served it along with some sauteed baby scallops, which my husband put in with his soup and enjoyed that way. And, as someone suggested.... the loaf of three-cheese bread and fresh, fruity olive oil was super!! I might suggest preparing, chilling, and serving the soup in the same day to keep the flavors their freshest.

Yakitori Don

Reviewed: Jun. 20, 2007
Wonderful flavor... I used chunks of chicken breast so it cooked just a little faster, then served it over rice, and garnished with chopped fresh cilentro and green onion. Also, I used a less salty soy sauce (one I get that's made in Hawaii). What a great meal served with sauteed (stir-fried) boy choy or other greens!

Sweet Potato Latkes

Reviewed: Sep. 25, 2009
These were OK.. I prepared them just as listed, probably won't bother with them again unless I make some changes. I may try them with yams rather than sweet potato???

NuNu's and Hot Dogs

Reviewed: Apr. 11, 2008
WOW! Best hotdogs I've had since last state fair (and come to think of it, I liked the coating, not the dog). This is the perfect quick recipe to make when you're hungry and DON'T want to cook... ie. beats fast food, hands down. It's also the perfect thing to serve alongside a big serving of steamed veges... or if your kids (and spouse) are food-educated and open-minded, saute the veges right in with the hotdogs. It's a five star for it's simplicity.

Honey Baked Chicken II

Reviewed: Sep. 20, 2007
Five stars for this one.... actually I used thick pork chops instead, but this seasoning blend is what makes it special. If anyone wants to try the chops, I baked them less time and about 325 degrees... Then softened some apple slices in the microwave, laid them over the chops (drizzled with the pan juices) for the last 15 minutes... Oh Yeah!

Baked Scallops

Reviewed: Feb. 1, 2007
I'll go 5 stars because the flavor was rich but complimentary and yet SSOoo easy! I used Italian bread crumbs and they tasted fine. I didn't put in the extra garlic, but will next time BUT I'll saute it in the butter first!

Perfect Flat Iron Steak

Reviewed: Sep. 26, 2009
Made this last night just as directed, except had to sub prepared brown mustard, and it does make a very tasty steak. I used 1" thick filets, med-rare, cooked 3 mins each side. Very pretty sliced on the platter too. Might try topping with some sauted mushrooms next time.

BUSH'S® Country Cornbread Hoppin' John

Reviewed: Jan. 14, 2008
We all enjoyed this for a quick lunch or simple dinner. It was surprisingly good "comfort food"... but, I guess you have to enjoy black-eyes before you're gonna like this dish. I've also made it with breakfast sausage instead of the bacon and it's equally as good and maybe a little "meatier" tasting for heartier eaters.

Grilled Gyro Burgers

Reviewed: Sep. 21, 2007
Wonderful flavor for a unique sandwich... I tweeked the recipe by using low-fat sour cream, Italian dressing mix (usually no MSG), skipped the lettuce but added slivered red onion to the cucumber mixture.... Then garnished with fresh cilentro and lime wedges to squeeze over the fillings. I thought it was flavorful, juicy, and a refreshing change from just another burger!!

Pasta Melanzana

Reviewed: Jul. 29, 2007
I LOVE eggplant, but this recipe just didn't blend for me. Perhaps if you are a vegetarian it would be good for you since it is filling, but I didn't like the combination of the pasta and spinach with the eggplant. Perhaps preparing just the eggplant would be OK... but I can't see that I'd ever think of serving it to company, and that's one of my criteria for a good dish. Rating it a one means I threw it out and rating it a two means I ate it but don't think I even want to save the recipe.
