Easy Meat Samosas

Reviewed: Jun. 2, 2014
This was a very good samosa filling recipe. I will say that I wanted a "pie" recipe because I already had a pie crust to fill, so I didn't make the individual samosas, but I followed the recipe for the filling almost to the letter (didn't have peas, so used a can of corn, and used a full pound of ground beef). The flavor was amazing! Not too spicy, just the right amount of sweetness. I used a frozen pie crust, thawed out, then topped it with a refrigerated pie crust, brushed with the egg wash indicated here. I got rave reviews from my boyfriend - a staunch traditional meat pie guy - and my two adult children, one of which is a big fan of curry and samosas, in particular. I will make this again, next time trying with individual crusts. It was easy, you must try this, even if you think you don't like this kind of food.

Quick Quiche

Reviewed: Jan. 6, 2013
This was great for what it is - a quiche without a crust. I served it cold at a baby shower and it was yummy that way! I used a bit more cheese, just because I really like my quiches cheesy. YUM!

Banana Coconut Loaf

Reviewed: Jan. 6, 2013
Delish! I followed recipe almost exactly, only adding a handful of chocolate chips for fun and subsituting vanilla extract, as I didn't have almond. Boy, the smell alone was intoxicating enough to make me forget about the gift recipients this was for...then when I tasted a crumb that got stuck to the pan, I knew I was in danger of having to make another batch! I used mini loaf pans and got 3 out of this recipe. I did not have any problems with dryness/crumbling as some other reviewers did. My boyfriend insists that I make this for us often, now!

Pecan Pie

Reviewed: Jan. 6, 2013
Although I didn't use the pie crust recipe here, due to time restraints (who doesn't run into that for holiday baking???), there is absolutely NOTHING wrong with this recipe. I have used it once before this time, but couldn't quite remember how it was - possibly because I baked it for another event and wasn't able to try a piece myself before it was gone! This is mmm-mmm good, honest pecan pie. No frills, just great pecan pie taste and simple to make. It's a keeper for sure!

Baked Buffalo Wings

Reviewed: Jan. 6, 2013
This was disappointing. The wings were dried out when cooked on a rack in the pan, and just passable NOT on a rack; terribly bland flavor if I hadn't upped the hot sauce AND cayenne pepper amounts (let's just say I was skeptical from the beginning), and even then it was just "OK". Unfortunately, I made 10 lbs of wings for a baby shower as my first attempt at this recipe, so I've learned a valuable lesson - NEVER TEST A RECIPE ON AN EVENT BEFORE TRYING IT YOURSELF! I was embarrassed, to say the least, but needed a baked buffalo wing recipe, since frying was out of the question. Next time I'll just use a tried and true fried wing recipe and reheat in an oven prior to any event.

Slow Cooker Creamy Potato Soup

Reviewed: Oct. 23, 2012
This was simple and very tasty. I made it, expecting it to last a few days in the fridge. It was GONE in one night!

Ham and Cheese Bowties

Reviewed: Sep. 11, 2012
Very basic, not bad at all. Accidentally dumped more pepper than I intended to (probably about a teaspoon?) and I'm glad I did - it needed a kick. Used cheese I had handy, which was some leftover mexican blend and italian blend - I like the combo very much. Also sprinkled some crushed ritz cracker crumbs on top with a few dabs of butter. Nice, cool evening comfort food! A mess to clean up afterwards, however, with 3 pans to clean, plus utensils, etc., but well worth it.

Broiled Tilapia Parmesan

Reviewed: Mar. 30, 2012
This was really great. I was surprised that parmesan would taste so good on fish (and so was my boyfriend)! I did add a little bit of bread crumbs to the cheese mixture, to help out the texture, but in the end, it didn't really matter because the topping doesn't stay under the broiler long enough to really crisp up anyway. So, although a bit on the mushy side, the result was a delicious creamy topping. I recommend broiling on LOW, as when I turned up to high for this last step, the topping quickly started to blacken, but did not get crispy. Delicious!

Chef John's Ham and Potato Soup

Reviewed: Mar. 27, 2012
This was incredible! I brought it to work and got rave reviews and even I LOVED IT - and I generally don't like soup. But following some basic rules (like how to make a rue, correctly!), it was thick, creamy and super tasty! Thank you Chef John ;)

Death By Chocolate II

Reviewed: Jan. 2, 2012
Outstanding! The compliments I got on this when I brought it to a Christmas Eve function only confirmed what I already knew from trying it myself: this IS the ULTIMATE dessert! I cut cake up into chunks and drizzled coffee liqueur and Godiva chocolate liqueur over them as I layered. I also used real whipped cream, sweetened with just a little confectioners sugar and vanilla extract. To add a little color, I drizzled a bit of strawberry dessert topping on top of the whipped cream layers. I did NOT leave the leftovers at the hostess's house, but it followed me everywhere until it was gone, the day after Christmas!

Awesome Sausage, Apple and Cranberry Stuffing

Reviewed: Jan. 2, 2012
This was a home run on Christmas. The blend of the flavors was fantastic together. I used potato bread and found it to be very substantial and hearty. My bread chunks were cut a bit on the larger side, so as not to turn to "mush". I did have to add a little more broth than called for, though...fantastic overall!

Jam Kolaches

Reviewed: Dec. 17, 2010
Followed directions to a "T", but I did not care for these; used strawberry jam for the filling and by 10 mins. baking time, it had oozed all over the cookie sheet and out of the cookies; I doubt I even used a 1/4 teaspoon of filling, either.

Crispy Rosemary Chicken and Fries

Reviewed: Feb. 8, 2010
This was good...especially the potatoes! Only wish I had made more of them! The chicken was actually a tad dry, so I may adjust temp next time...? Not sure...any suggestions, because I would really like to make this again, yet still be able to retain the chicken's juicyness! email: bobsbestgirl@hotmail.com - THANKS! Overall, a great flavor!

Grilled Tilapia with Mango Salsa

Reviewed: Feb. 8, 2010
Everybody loved this; even the super picky 11 year old! I thought the mango salsa was a great accent, however, the rest of the family preferred to eat the fish on its own...I've made this three times and it just doesn't disappoint!

Cabbage Kielbasa Supper

Reviewed: Feb. 8, 2010
This was absolutely wonderful! All I added was garlic powder, thyme and pepper - outstanding. 5 hours was all the cook time necessary in my slow cooker on low. This took me back to family picnics when I was a kid, and my aunts would make this every year. SO YUMMY! Thank you Margery!

Roasted Vegetable Lasagna

Reviewed: Dec. 28, 2009
This was good, BUT: noodles just don't line up and cook right, if you place them 4 across...also, not nearly enough sauce OR veggies...next time I will have to almost double both. In the end, roasting the veggies was a very nice touch, when I previously just threw them in raw...a nice, different flavor. I ended up doubling the ricotta and mozzarella, also, as we are big cheese lovers!

Molasses Sugar Cookies

Reviewed: Jan. 4, 2009
please, please, if you must use shortening, use the butter flavored one from Crisco - every bite tasted like fried fish, or something.

Hot Spiked Cider

Reviewed: Jan. 4, 2009
Absolutely amazing! I prepared for a holiday gathering my finace and I were hosting, and more than once, after the first batch was gone, I heard "That hot cider tasted really good! Is there any more left?" (naturally, I made another batch). I used only 1 cup of Captain Morgan Spiced Rum, and it turns out perfectly, even for those not used to alcoholic beverages, but enough so that you can tell there's rum in it. Some people don't like the addition of the butter pat at the end, but I feel it truly completes this beverage. I'll be making this all winter long, now - thanks!
