Taco Seasoning I

Reviewed: Feb. 10, 2014
Easy, uses spices in the pantry, and does the job tastefully. I always buy taco seasoning (and nearly all my seasonings) from a farmers' mkt and it is way cheaper than the prepackaged stuff. This is great when I run out or just want to make my own.

Crisp Marinated Cucumbers

Reviewed: Jul. 10, 2013
An excellent recipe that can be made zippier with just an easy change. In a saucepan on stovetop or glass measuring cup in microwave warm the vinegar, sugar, and salt stirring until everything is dissolved. As it cools, add up to about one teaspoon of mixed pickling spice in an infuser (or leave it loose if desired). When cooled completely dunk the infuser several time to extract flavor and remove. Stir in the celery seed and pour over the cucumbers and onions. Chill and enjoy.

Best Fried Green Tomatoes

Reviewed: Jul. 3, 2013
Excellent. Used on green tomatoes, yellow squash, cucumbers, and mushrooms with great success. Keep the basic process/ingredients but feel free to change up the seasonings - use Cajun, or Old Bay, or Italian, or whatever you like. Nice crunchy breading but not too heavy.

Rita's Spinach Casserole

Reviewed: Jun. 4, 2013
Lots of substitutions to use what was on hand, but came out very good. Used fresh spinach from the garden which I added to the skillet the last couple of minutes to just barely wilt. Didn't have sauce so I used stewed tomatoes and added onion, garlic, and Italian seasoning. The pasta was rotini and the cheese provolone.

High Temperature Eye-of-Round Roast

Reviewed: Jan. 16, 2013
I've used this technique several times, all with success. Brushed with a homemade browning sauce (basically brown sugar heated just to point of melting burning and beef broth cooked down to half), sprinkled with favorite seasoning salt and fresh black pepper. Fat side up and followed the times adjusted for size of roast. I did leave the oven at 500 degress for initial period. Rest for 15-20 minutes. Medium rare, very tender, and juicy. Easy carving.

Dijon Grilled Pork Chops

Reviewed: May 16, 2012
Easy and flavorful. Didn't have apple juice so used orange. Could use beer or water as most of the flavor comes from other ingredients. Recipe says use 2/3 cup and save rest to baste, but unless you double it there won't be any extra. As written it is enough for 4-5 nice size chops. If chops are thick, piercing with fork may help infuse flavor. I only marinated for 3 hr but flavor was still great.

Scalloped Potatoes II

Reviewed: Mar. 31, 2012
Just like mom's basic recipe except she didn't use the hotter oven to start. I add chopped onion and black pepper at each layer. Sometimes use seasoning salt. Easy to add cheese if desired. Also easy to scale down for two people.

Angela's Awesome Enchiladas

Reviewed: Jan. 26, 2012
Similar to a recipe I've used from old Southern Living cookbook. Traditionally made with leftover Thanksgiving turkey. Instead of green onions I use chopped spinach or kale - adds the color and nutrition.

Garlic Kale

Reviewed: Jan. 15, 2012
I liked this easy kale recipe. At end I added about 1 teaspoon water, covered and let it steam about a minute. Flavor variation: instead of olive oil, brown a couple slices of good quality bacon, chopped. Proceed as in recipe leaving the bacon bits in for flavor and texture.

Stewed Tomato Pasta

Reviewed: Dec. 13, 2011
Good base that is easy to adapt to things on hand to give more flavor and veggies. For example, I sautéed onion and chopped mushrooms with a strip of diced bacon. Added tomatoes, broth, a few California style frozen veggies, and some snipped spinach. Used whole wheat pasta. Flavorful and colorful side.

The Sarge's Goetta - German Breakfast Treat

Reviewed: Sep. 13, 2011
Since I like scrapple, and I'd just bought some steel cut oats, I thought I'd give goetta a try. Cut recipe in half and the slow cooker was filled to the top. Used quality Gunnoe's pork sausage and added a tablespoon of Mrs Dash Table Blend as suggested in on review. I still prefer scrapple, but this was very good along with fried eggs. Next time I'll be careful to not overcook the oats (left them going about two hours), will probably add minced garlic, may increase the sausage to 1 1/2 lb. and decrease the ground beef by 1/2 lb. to ramp up the sausage flavor. I'll also make sure the meat and onions are very well mixed. Recommend that you slice thin and fry in butter (or better yet bacon grease) in medium high skillet until browned and crispy on both sides. Good country eaten'.

Spanish-Style Chicken and Sausage

Reviewed: Sep. 5, 2011
Had put a couple chicken breasts in Italian dressing to marinate for grilling just before spotting this recipe. Had a half pound of bulk Italian sausage that I needed to use up. Browned and crumbled the sausage. Shook marinate off the chicken and cut into half inch strips. Picked fresh peppers (just a tad hot) that I cut in rings and tomatoes. Yes, broth would be better than bouillon but didn't have any and the bouillon came out fine. Used basmati rice that has been well rinsed and soaked about 10 minutes before adding, brought to boil then removed from heat and let it sit for about 20 minutes covered. Added tomatoes right at the end. Nice dinner. Next time I might add a little dried Italian seasoning.

Oatmeal Raisin Cookies VI

Reviewed: Mar. 28, 2011
Very good oatmeal cookie. I added a shake of salt and used salted butter. Used KAF white whole wheat for half the flour and traditional oats which I think gives a bit more texture than quick oats. Soaked raisins. Moist, chewy, flavorful.

Baked Potato Soup

Reviewed: Mar. 12, 2011
This may become our new favorite potato soup! I did add about 1/4 cup each of diced carrot and celery and sauteed with onion (used medium) and garlic. Cut basil to 1/2 teaspoon and added about a teaspoon of dried parsley. Slightly mashing potatoes after they warmed in the soup helped to thicken it somewhat.

Mashed Potato Gratin

Reviewed: Mar. 11, 2011
I only had plain panko bread crumbs so I added Italian seasoning. Flavor was good but potatoes came out a bit dry/pasty. Perhaps a little more added broth and/or butter would help.

Pork Roast with Tangy Sauce

Reviewed: Mar. 10, 2011

Cowboy Skillet Casserole

Reviewed: Mar. 9, 2011
Here's the deal. Whip up your favorite chili (hot or mild/beans or no beans/white chili) in a cast iron skillet. Make package or homemade corn bread (or biscuits if you prefer) and cover the top with the mix. You can add corn and/or cheese if desired. Bake at 400° for 18-20 minutes until bread is done and golden brown. One dish dinner. Serve with salad and any toppings desired--tomatoes, sour cream, salsa, etc.

Sausage Pasta

Reviewed: Feb. 17, 2011
Excellent and elegant. Used whole wheat pasta and grilled mild Italian sausage links that I then cut in 1-2 inch chunks. Added strips of red and green sweet pepper and sauteed about 2 min with onion. Homemade French bread and we had a complete meal.

Amazing Chicken

Reviewed: Feb. 15, 2011
Mixed some Mrs Dash seasoning blend and pepper in mayo and crumbs. Used panko crumbs. Could use crushed corn flakes or crackers. Large breasts so I cut them in half to assure complete cooking. Took about 35 min. Agree with other reviews that a thin coating of mayo is best. Easy and good.

Smothered Bacon Chicken

Reviewed: Feb. 14, 2011
Make it even better - substitute thin sliced county ham for the bacon.
