New Orleans Barbeque Shrimp

Reviewed: Aug. 3, 2014
We added extra beer and Worcestershire sauce for a little extra juice and served it over grits with chopped green onions over the top. No need to add butter to the grits because the sauce is perfect. French bread if you have it, but BBQ Shrimp and Grits is a great New Orleans tradition.

Cafeteria Carrot Souffle

Reviewed: Dec. 24, 2013
We used a #10 can of sweet potatoes, drained, and doubled the rest of the ingredients to make two pans of sweet potato soufflé for my husband's employees who work the holiday {they can't close ;( so we feed them a big meal!} This worked perfectly.

Creamed Beef for SOS

Reviewed: Aug. 16, 2013
My dad was an Army man, but my mom never made this at home. When I found the recipe, I had to try it. After my family decided they liked it, I called my dad to tell him I made "Army special" for dinner. He knew it was SOS right away! I am bringing him some tomorrow. BE SURE NOT TO ADD EXTRA SALT when making this. I used a spice blend that I use routinely, and forgot about the salt in that and the chicken bullion. I added more milk and cooked it a little longer to try to thin the saltiness, but it is still salty. We served it with biscuits, and my 15 year old football player ate 4 biscuits opened up with SOS on each side. Guess the extra salt is just replenishing his loss from workouts. ;) Next time we will try it with a hamburger and breakfast sausage mixture and serve it over hash brown patties as suggested by another reviewer. Thanks for sharing!

King Ranch Chicken Casserole III

Reviewed: Apr. 30, 2013
The recipe, as it is, is good, but I added paprika, taco dip mix, and used a bag of frozen fajita mix vegetables instead of the chopped onion and bell pepper. I sautéed the veggies with some chicken stock and cilantro. It added another layer of flavor.

Party Punch II

Reviewed: Nov. 22, 2012
I used frozen sweet black cherries instead of strawberries bc I don't care for all the tiny seeds on strawberries. Worked well.

Buffalo Chicken Dip

Reviewed: Sep. 16, 2012
I liked the dip, and so did EVERYONE else at my son's football team tailgate party. Trying to keep things easy, I decided to do it all in my slow-cooker. Turn it on low. Place cream cheese (straight from refrigerator), ranch, and pepper sauce in cooker. While that began to soften, I started to chop my chicken breasts...sorry, not a fan of the can. Actually, I used my mini chopper to get it superfine for the dip. After the chicken is shredded, add it and half the cheese to the softened items in the crock pot, stir to incorporate it all, top with remaining cheese, crank it up until the cheese on top gets bubbly, then bring back down to keep warm setting. One dish PERFECTION!

Cracker Candy

Reviewed: Nov. 23, 2011
tastes great, but do not try to do with graham crackers...it just didn't do as well as saltines, even with adding just a little more salt in the sugar mixture. I did the whole boil for 3 minutes (soft boil stage) and I found my chocolate layer was coming away from the crackers - all problems I did not have with the saltines! If anyone has an explanation, please let me know!

Cajun Bread Pudding

Reviewed: Nov. 22, 2011
I have made this several times, and I am a native New Orleanian. My husband used to work in a prominent NO restaurant, and their recipe was very similar tasting, but much more difficult. My suggestion for the sauce would be that if you are planning to add the condensed milk, DO NOT add the corn syrup. I love sweets, and that even makes me gag. Also, I did add a raisin/craisin mix to the bread that was simmered in about 1-2 tsp bourbon before I added it to the recipe, and I doubled the cinnamon. It was just a good holiday thing! You could add a little orange zest, too! Anyway...c'est la vie e laissez le bon temps rouler!

Winter Blossom's Often Requested Ham Salad

Reviewed: Nov. 3, 2011
I must confess that I do not often measure when cooking, but since I had leftover ham and some doubts about this recipe, I did measure. Very good, but a little bland for my New Orleans taste buds. So, loving all things garlic, I added a sprinkle (1/2 tsp) of garlic salt and white pepper. It brought the flavors together beautifully! I also have to say that I used light sour cream instead of mayo. A caterer friend taught me that trick years ago...anytime you want it to last longer and not taste like mayo, use sour cream. Thanks for the recipe!!

Southern Praline Pecan Cake

Reviewed: Mar. 12, 2011
I try to make a recipe as written the first time, then make adjustments to suit my family, but the store did not have the butter pecan cake mix. I used a regular yellow cake mix and it was delicious! I did prepare the pan with spray and flour and let it cool in the pan overnight. It flipped right out with only one small blemish that a dusting of powdered sugar would hide. I brought the cake to work with me where it quickly became breakfast instead of afternoon snack. It was moist and dense. And served very well as a cold cake. No glaze needed! That is where it would get overly-sweet. Face it, it is a dessert! I would like to try the recipe again with other flavor cake mixes, because it would work well with more flavors than one.

Delicious Matzo Candy

Reviewed: Dec. 29, 2010
This is so addictive. I made two batches, one with chocolate top and no nuts, the other with nuts and no chocolate. I have also made it with graham crackers and another recipe I saw used saltine crackers. I did use the mini chips, which eliminated the necessity of putting it back in the oven. By the time I sprinkled the chips all over the top, they melted and spread without trouble. Make sure you put foil or parchment on your cookie sheet!

Chimichurri Sauce

Reviewed: Aug. 29, 2010
not nearly as good as the one I had at our local Argentinean restaurant. Sorry - even tried to make some adjustments like adding lemon juice to brighten the flavor & more garlic, but it just wasn't the same. I think the red wine vinegar was the problem; next time I won't add it it all - just some lemon juice.

Yuca French Fries

Reviewed: Jun. 21, 2010
Yummy! I had these in a New Orleans restaurant (RioMar) with a hanger steak and chimichuri sauce; it was fabulous. I want it all the time now. And yes, add salt and garlic to the fries after frying - you won't regret it!

Glazed Almond Bundt Cake

Reviewed: May 8, 2010
I used the chopper attachment on my immersion blender and had no problems grinding the almonds. My daughter likes a heavy almond tasting cake - almost like and almond snowball if you've ever had one in New Orleans - so I put 2 Tablespoons Almond extract and no vanilla. I also brushed the warm cake with Amaretto. She decided this was her favorite cake, and is the recipe she wants me to use for her Sweet 16 party. It does work well in a 11 x 13 pan, but I reduced the time to 45 minutes. The Baker's Joy tip worked perfectly. I think I will use a parchment paper pan liner when I do the one for her party.

Greek Penne and Chicken

Reviewed: Jan. 5, 2010
Being that this is listed under healthy cooking, I am amazed at how many people said they added butter, heavy cream, marinated artichokes, oil, etc. If you need more sauce, let the butter, onion, & garlic mixture, artichokes(in water) & tomatoes cook down in some chicken broth. Add more flavor and less calories by using more herbs.

Slow-Cooker Chicken Tortilla Soup

Reviewed: Jan. 5, 2010
I haven't tried this as written,because I didn't have the exact ingredients, but it still came out great. I used half of a leftover rotisserie chicken, no corn, and crushed tortilla chips instead of flour tortillas, then ran the immersion blender through the crockpot. Also, since I didn't have the can of chicken broth, I used a can of cream of chicken; that also made it creamy instead of broth-like. It tasted great, and I do plan to repeat the recipe as written for an upcoming party. I'll update then!
