Best Ever Jalapeno Poppers

Reviewed: Sep. 3, 2014
The first batch I made I used half a fresh pepper for each. Now, I like hot...but these were HOT! For the next batch, I divided the pepper into thirds. Much better. Don't be afraid to let them "rest" between coatings. A neat trick I never heard of but it works! Making them again real soon!!!!

Oatmeal Waffles

Reviewed: Nov. 11, 2011
Thatsa lotta butter! It can probably be cut back. I substituted one packet of maple and brown sugar instant oatmeal and omitted the rolled oats, sugar and cinnamon. It made perfectly fine waffles. If you want it sweeter or crunchier, you could probably add a second packet.

Aunt Ruth's Crab Cakes

Reviewed: Sep. 16, 2011
I halved this recipe to use some crab left over from another dish. I also broiled them. I thought the recipe was a bit “fluid” but after broiling (on high, 5 minutes each side) they did firm up. I also found it a bit spicy which masked the flavor of the crab. Made 3 generously-sized crab cakes. I’ll keep searching for the perfect crab cake recipe.

Spicy Mexican Torte

Reviewed: Jul. 18, 2011
As soon as I read this recipe I knew I had to try it. Problem is...it’s mid-summer and I really didn’t want to use the oven in the kitchen. I assembled the torte in a cast iron skillet and baked it outside on the gas grill! My only mistake was I should have not used the burners directly under the skillet...it got a bid charred. But, since it’s in layers, we just didn’t eat the bottom layer and the burnt flavor did not permeate the rest of the torte. I’m going to try it this way again...just adjust my cooking method. I've since made this a second time using two tortillas on the bottom only one tortilla between each layer. It's much better this way and less "doughy." Also baked it in a regular over.

Made this just as described. Very tasty! I want to use the sauce for some other recipes as well.

Cake Mix Cookies VIII

Reviewed: Feb. 9, 2011
A great, simple and tasty recipe! I didn't change a thing. The cookies are oh, so chocolaty and puffy enough but not cake-like at all. I look forward to changing out the chocolate chips with peanut butter chips! Yum!

English Trifle

Reviewed: Feb. 7, 2011
I agree with a previous review who said this makes quite a large quantity. For me, my trifle bowl was...dare I say it...a trifle small. If you want to make a smaller quantity or use a smaller bowl, you can get away with only 1 cake sliced in half and not cubed. This also allows for more easy layering of the fruit. I did not use the whipped crease simply ran out of room! Delicious nonetheless.

Mom's Stovetop Pork Ribs

Reviewed: Feb. 1, 2011
I've simmered ribs for decades, usually leading to grilling with BBQ sauce so I was a bit puzzled when the contributor of this recipe stated that the water would evaporate...in 25 minutes! Not so! Here's what I did. I simmered the ribs (after first brining to a boil) with the listed ingredients for 45 minutes. Removed and drained the ribs. Transferred them to a hot iron skillet with just enough oil to cover and seared turning frequently. They were delicious! Not sure if anyone's mentioned this but as the ribs are cooking in the spices, the kitchen smells great!

Ruby Red Layered Salad

Reviewed: Dec. 26, 2010
A hit at Christmas! Very colorful and tasty. (I forgot to drain the pineapple which I think contributed to a longer set time...but it eventually did!)

Sopapilla Cheesecake Dessert

Reviewed: Sep. 12, 2010
With crescent roll dough not coming in sheets, this recipe is all the easier. You can get by with half the sugar and butter. Brush the butter on.

Island Shrimp and Rice

Reviewed: Feb. 11, 2008
This is a delightful recipe that I will certainly make again. At first I didn’t understand the use of the bacon but, as you enjoy the meal, your palette surely will! I recommend making it “as is” the fist time. It’s got just the right amount of spice. Thank you, Principal Cole!

Flatlander Chili

Reviewed: Jan. 27, 2008
Looking at the ingredients you’d never guess this makes good chili. The only reason I didn’t give it 5 stars is that it is a bit “soupy.” I found it got thicker with each reheat. I made this for guests so instead of the ground beef I used two pounds of sirloin which I cubed and braised. If you like super chunky chili, I think you could easily double the non-liquid ingredients. But, I would make it just “as is” the first time.

Orange Buttermilk Salad

Reviewed: Jun. 6, 2007
Quick and simple but very sweet. I wonder if the sugar could be eliminated?

Cranberry Cherry Salad

Reviewed: Dec. 17, 2006
A very refreshing and tasty salad. I made mine in individual champagne glasses. I wish there was a way to reduce the quantity of the topping...cream cheese, mayonnaise and whipped cream. Ouch! The calories! My proportions were about 2/3 cranberry-cherry base to 1/3 creamed topping.
