Asian Salad

Reviewed: Aug. 23, 2012
I make this A LOT. I do add some blanched sugar snap peas and blanched sliced carrots. I also thicken the dressing with a teaspoon of cornstarch whisked in, and add a little more soy sauce. It's a great salad, and seems to keep a little longer than a normal lettuce salad. (If there's any left.)

Arkansas Green Beans

Reviewed: Jun. 24, 2012
Yum Yum and Easy Easy! I ended up using 2 (30 oz.) cans of green beans, half of the brown sugar, and used the pre-cooked bacon pieces found near the salad dressing in the grocery store. Oh, and used minced garlic. A keeper!

Spicy Mexican Salad

Reviewed: May 3, 2012
Very tasty! I used the "spicy ranch" dressing, and added chopped onion and black olives.

Bacon Crackers

Reviewed: Feb. 10, 2012
Ok, if you looked at this recipe, you like bacon. So don't complain about fat! These are yummy. They are best with a Waverly-type cracker, baked on a rack. I also used some freshly cracked pepper on mine, but you can also used Cajun seasoning or substitute Parm for the brown sugar. Addicting.

Sally's Spinach Mashed Potatoes

Reviewed: Jan. 17, 2012
What a wickedly clever idea, with unlimited possibilities! (This is in the oven now.) I had a container of prepared mashed potatoes, fried 3 strips of bacon, and then sauteed my onion and some garlic in the drippings. (Accidently cut up almost 1 cup of onion, but more's the merrier.) I also added an egg for some puffiness. Used colby-jack cheese, as that was what I had and topped it with some parmesan. Can't wait to dig in. Tasted as I went along, and it smells yummy!

Creamy Hot Chocolate

Reviewed: Dec. 7, 2011
This is yummy. We grew up with Nestle's and milk heated up, and I just can't deal with the stuff in a packet! Never thought to use sweetened condensed milk, and I did use a combo of half & half and milk instead of the water. Very tasty on a cold night with some whipped cream squirted on top! I did also add 1/2 of a 4 oz bar of Hershey's chocolate, in addition to the cocoa powder. For those of you who had a sediment problem, try using either an immersion blender or run it through your blender after it has blended, but before it gets hot.

Green Grape Salad

Reviewed: Nov. 19, 2011
I have just made this for a baby shower, and tasted it. Wow! Very, very tasty and pretty. I used half green and half red grapes. Mixed my wet ingredients with the mixer, and stirred in grapes by hand. I did not add the additional brown sugar on top, as it was plenty sweet for me, but just sprinkled with the pecans. Easy, pretty, and tasty. Can't wait to see what my guests think!

White Wine Chicken Soup

Reviewed: Oct. 18, 2011
I am giving this 5 stars for taste, but the directions are very vague (if you've never made homemade soup before) and there is not nearly enough liquid. Please precook your chicken in some water, and then debone, strain broth, and cool both. I usually boil any chicken carcasses I end up with, and freeze the broth, so that's what I used to thin the soup. I also had some leftover rice, so I threw that in at the end. All in all, a very tasty soup, and will probably make the again! (If you are having trouble with vegetables getting mushy, add the carrots, celery, and onions first, and then add the rest about 30 minutes later.)

Cinnamon Apple and Havarti Tea Sandwiches

Reviewed: Oct. 5, 2011
I'm gonna go ahead and give this one a thumbs up, without having made it yet. I am planning my niece's baby shower this fall, and this sounds really, really good! What a clever idea. Will update after the shower to let you know how everyone liked them

Bacon Wrapped Barbeque Shrimp

Reviewed: Sep. 24, 2011
These are really, really good. Do partially cook your bacon first, so the shrimp don't overcook. Try serving these with some good quality honey mustard dressing. Puts it right over the top!

Goldenrod Egg

Reviewed: Sep. 19, 2011
My Southern husband taught me how to make this, but we just chop up the eggs into the cream sauce, and call it creamed eggs. Yummy!

Zucchini Gingerbread

Reviewed: Sep. 3, 2011
Could not wait to make this! Only changes I made were to use applesauce instead of oil, and I turned down the oven heat to 350 once I put pans in (thought 425 way too high for baking.) This makes a very moist and tasty bread, more of a spice bread than a gingerbread. You do not even know there is zucchini in it after it finished baking. I would make this again.

Sesame Pasta Chicken Salad

Reviewed: Jun. 15, 2011
This was very, very good. I added some julienne slices of carrots and some sugar snap peas, which I lightly steamed. I also added the water chestnuts, but I would leave them out next time. Not a fan. The sauce is very tasty, and the flavors in the dish complimented each other. Will make again soon!

Scalloped Pineapple

Reviewed: Apr. 23, 2011
I have been making this recipe for years, except I have not separated my eggs. (Will try that!) This is a staple on my Thanksgiving table, as well. It's like a pineapple bread pudding. It's wonderful!

This is THE BEST banana bread. Hands down. This is the go to recipe, replacing my mother's recipe we grew up on. Thanks, Cathy!

Rainbow Clown Cake

Reviewed: Mar. 12, 2010
I first saw the "Clown Vomit Cake" mentioned in a blog, and HAD to try it, just for the name. i used a homemade pound cake, colored the batter with gel food coloring (about 7 different colors,) and baked it it a tube pan. What a hit! Make a glaze and use some fun sprinkles on top. I have since used this idea to make a "Santa Vomit Cake" for Christmas, using plain batter, red, and green. What a great idea this is..... You can use different colors for different holidays...... Red, White, and Blue would be great for the 4th of July. Thanks for such and neat idea (P.S. when you color your batter, you can just "plop" it in the pan. It will marble while it bakes!)

Warm Mushroom Spread

Reviewed: Dec. 29, 2009
I haven't even tried this yet, and I know it's a keeper. What about a little Swiss cheese and white wine, too? I'm gonna do this one this weekend!

Turkey Mercedes

Reviewed: Nov. 24, 2009
I have made this several times, with the following changes: I use 1 cup each lemon juice, fresh orange juice, and white wine, and then just put it all in a huge ziplock bag and let it marinate in the fridge overnight. DELICIOUS! I boil the marinade and add it to the pan to roast the turkey. I then rub the turkey with some olive oil. Turns out very moist and flavorful.

Blue Cheese Burgers

Reviewed: Sep. 21, 2009
I do low carb, so I am always looking for new ideas.... These are fabulous! I only used 2 lbs of ground beef, and kept the other ingredients the same. It netted 6 good sized burgers, and the flavor was awesome. I pan fried these, as it was raining, and though I advise to make sure to spray a non-stick pan with cooking spray, as they will stick, it gave me some good old juicy goo to top the burger with.
