Fresh Strawberry Upside Down Cake

Reviewed: Jul. 8, 2009
Wonderful! I add about a cup extra of mini marshmallows, cut the cake in half and stack it to make a "layer" cake, then spread whipped cream around the sides. We've made this four times over the past month, and people have raved about it every time.

Rainbow Rotini Salad

Reviewed: Jul. 16, 2009
Delicious, and it makes an excellent presentation. I added crumbled feta cheese and cut back on the amount of dressing.

Turkey Brine

Reviewed: Dec. 12, 2008
What a pain to bathe a 25 pound turkey in a 5 gallon bucket, but ABSOLUTELY WORTH IT!!! We had 15 people and they raved about the turkey being the best they ever had. Even the white meat was moist and juicy. This was my first time brining, but will now do it for whole chicken, turkey, and anything else I can think of!

Praline Strips

Reviewed: Jul. 8, 2011
Really, Really good! However a note...used all butter and made two separate batches (did Not cook at the same time), one in a glass pan and one in a metal one. Per other reviewer suggestions, increased the cooking time to 18 minutes. The glass pan was fabulous, the metal pan burned to a crisp! I didn't know glass vs. metal would cook differently, but a good lesson! Also, substituted walnuts for the pecans (1/2 the price) and nobody knew the difference! They were the only dessert to disappear.

Tex-Mex Turkey Soup

Reviewed: Nov. 19, 2008
My family thought this was excellent, not to spicy but had some zest. We wanted more vegetables so I used frozen mixed veggies instead of just corn, and did not add sour cream during cooking. Perfect to use leftover turkey on a cold autumn day.

Citrus Grilled Turkey Breast

Reviewed: Mar. 8, 2007
This is very good, it gives a different twist on Turkey. Although it has a nice citrus flavor even without the gravy, it is the citrus gravy that puts it over the top. For other novices out there, DO NOT cook the breast to the 185 degrees most thermometers show for poultry or it will dry out. I cooked it to 180 (I was a little leery of 170) and it was perfect.

Microwave Peanut Brittle

Reviewed: Dec. 14, 2006
I made this several years ago and only gave it 3 stars because it turned out too chewy. Just made it again but followed another reviewers recommendation to change the cooking times to 3.5 minutes, 3 minutes and 1 minute, respectively. It turned out absolutely perfect in my 1000 watt microwave oven. This will now be a permanent addition to our candy recipe box!

Baked Beans, Texas Ranger

Reviewed: Jul. 18, 2009
Took these to a basic bbq, and they were the hit of the party! I couldn't believe how much people raved about them.

Creamy Dill Cucumber Toasties

Reviewed: Mar. 13, 2007
This really is very tasty, very attractive, and VERY easy. Per another's suggestion, I used cherry tomato slices in addition to cucumber slices. I do think I will try Melba Toast rounds next time to give some crunch.

Crisscross Salad

Reviewed: Feb. 16, 2011
Very good, colorful, and refreshing. Left off the cheese and used fat free dressing and grape tomatoes...still very tasty without all the fat.

Boilermaker Tailgate Chili

Reviewed: Oct. 10, 2009
MightyPurdue22, PLease Forgive me for I have sinned...I took this wonderful chili and turned into a vegetarian recipe! It was so great the first time as written, my wife (who is not as enamored with meat as I am) asked if I would leave out the meat and substitute zucchini and more bell pepper. It hurt just to think about it, but guess what? It really is good this way. So if you are looking for a FABULOUS vegetarian chili, just leave out the meat and put in whatever veggies you like. Again, my apologies for this sacrilegious variation.

Cranberry Sauce

Reviewed: Dec. 6, 2009
I was shocked at how easy and good this was. It will now be a permanent addition to our Thanksgiving menu!

Easy Pot Roast

Reviewed: Jul. 15, 2010
By accident, I learned the secret...cook at a low heat for a long time. I cooked a 2-1/2 lb pot roast at 290 degrees for over 3 hours because I got tied up in a meeting. I thought it would be burned to a crisp as I only planned on cooking it 1.5 hours. Also left out the worcestershire and added a can of cream of mushroom soup. IT WAS FABULOUS!

Shrimp and Okra Gumbo

Reviewed: Jan. 21, 2007
Used 3 Cups water, 3 cups clam juice, 3 tbsp Old Bay, 1 tsp basil, 1 tsp oregano, 1 tsp thyme, added 1/2 lb scallops and this was fantastic. When I make it again, will probably cook the okra a little less. Expensive to make, and absolutely worth it!!

Goldy's Special Salad

Reviewed: Mar. 29, 2010
Really great presentation! Left out the avocado, and my wife vetoed the dressing after tasting it. We used a bottled light raspberry vinegarette instead. I was concerned it might be too sweet, but the salad got raves.

Slow Cooker Vegetable Chili

Reviewed: Oct. 17, 2009
I've been looking for a good veggie chili recipe and this is it! A little too much chili powder for my taste, made it seem unbalanced. I'll cut back and add more oregano and cumin next time and see if it will even out, but all in all, very good and very easy since there is no additional cooking of the veggies. Thank you!

Catherine's Spicy Chicken Soup

Reviewed: Sep. 6, 2011
I got very lazy and just threw all the ingredients into a crock pot and let it cook all day. I even used frozen chicken breasts and cut them up after being in the pot for a couple of hours. It came out so good I have to wonder if the original cooking recipe is any better! Doing this is as easy as it gets!

Cioppino

Reviewed: Jan. 28, 2007
This is pretty good but very, very rich...1/2 of my guests liked it, the other 1/2 thought it was only OK. I'd be tempted to try something in place of the butter (olive oil?), except this is too expensive of a recipe to experiment with.

Banana Upside-Down Cake

Reviewed: Sep. 29, 2009
Very delicious and not overly sweet; has a very good balance. I also could not find banana cake mix, so I sprinkled banana creme instant gelatin on top of the bananas and used yellow cake mix. Worked very well.
