Honey-Brined Fried Chicken Breasts

Reviewed: Mar. 30, 2014
This was excellent! I used breast tenderloins, soaked it a little longer in the buttermilk and hot sauteed (sp) with olive oil and butter. The crunch was great. we ate all 4 servings. Making it again tonight and using leftovers for salad with arugula and honey mustard dressing. It takes time but the actual 'prep' is little. Great recipe.

Marinated Flank Steak

Reviewed: Jul. 29, 2013
I have made this twice now and loved it both times. Made it for Fajitas adding the cumin, cayenne pepper, cilantro and lime. It was great. Made it with flank steak and served with pasta - only sub was I still used lime juice and added cilantro. Eating cold leftovers this morning. This meat will be great on a salad also.

Blueberry Cream Cheese Pound Cake I

Reviewed: Jul. 25, 2013
I have made this several times and it is a hit every time! I use the french vanilla cake mix and add extra berries. I never have a problem with the berries going to the bottom - they mix in perfectly. Last time I made it, I used FF cream chees - could not tell the difference. Watch the cooking time - you do not want to overbake this - I usually pull it out when moist crumbs are sticking to the toothpick.

Praline-Pumpkin Mousse Cornucopias

Reviewed: Nov. 12, 2012
These were fantastic...what a wow factor to the end of a dinner. I made the 'horns' in the morning, then the moose and put them together - do ahead and refrigerate. Then just heated the carmel and added the pecans. Only changes I made were added pumpkin pie spice and some brown sugar. I did use sugar free jello and splenda in place of the sugar. Did as one last reviewer suggested and topped with a splenda/cinnimon mix on the 'horns'.

Spoiled Baby Back Ribs

Reviewed: Jan. 11, 2011
These were great!! I did steam them in the oven (a little beer and water int he bottom of the pan - tightly covered with tinfoil) for about 2 hours. They were a little too fall of the bone...but very tender! The sauce is GREAT and broiling them to get that glaze was great. Hubby did not want to BBQ - watching the game!! It was an easy alternative. The only thing I changed in the sauce was less vinegar and added some cayenne pepper and hot sauce. Also - I doubled the sauce cuz we like them saucy!! This is definately a keeper.

Slow-Cooker Chicken Tortilla Soup

Reviewed: Jan. 24, 2010
Wow - this was really great!! Hubby said it was the BEST he has ever had! As others had suggested - I just put a couple of frozen chicken breasts in the crock pot, used chicken broth in place of water, and added all the other ingredients. The black beans suggested are a MUST. I used medium heat enchilada sauce which was fine for hubby but a little spicy for me. I toned mine down with a tsp of sour cream...excellent addition. Served it with the homemade tortilla strips - which are definately a plus - so much corn flavor! Added some mexican shredded cheese. Can't wait to add some avocado to it at serving tomorrow! Excellent and easy.

Pasta Primavera with Italian Turkey Sausage

Reviewed: Sep. 14, 2009
This is wonderful and easy!! It does make alot though! I decrease the oil - use just a couple of teaspoons. I use 1/2 regular and 1/2 hot turkey Italian sausage but remove it from the casing and crumble as it cooks. I like it with the red bpepper, use Italian diced tomatoes instead of fresh and add about 1 cup of chicken broth in the final 5 minutes to make it a little saucy...also - add a bit more cheese and extra FRESH basil! Even better the next day.

My Mom's Parmesan Chicken

Reviewed: Mar. 18, 2009
This was excellent. I did a whole chicken without skin...the thighs and legs were OK but I agree with other raters that bonless skinless breasts would be much easier and that was everyone's favorite. I do think the wine is a must but the butter could be less or even eliminated...I will try that next time. Also, I just used cooking spray on the pan instead of oil. Great recipe terrific flavor.

Rotisserie Chicken

Reviewed: Jan. 2, 2009
I have used this method to cook a couple of chickens now. I brined the chicken first so did not use the baste here but used everyone's suggestions on drip pan with beer...etc...BUT last night the drip pan liquid evaporated...caught fire and the bird caught fire!! ugh! We went out, bought a new chicken so this time I used the baste here and it was great! Did use less salt (and made sure we kept liquid in the drip pan!!!)

Portuguese Sweet Bread I

Reviewed: Jan. 1, 2009
Wow - this was great. This is much fresher and denser than store bought. I have never made bread before and it was so easy! I took the advice to use 1/2 cup sugar and add the extra egg yolk. I don't have a bread maker but the kitchen aid worked fine.

Apple Pie by Grandma Ople

Reviewed: Nov. 21, 2008
This was excellent. I took the suggestion and put 1/2 of the sauce on before the top curst and this made working with the lattice a little sticky! Also - I made the sauce too early and it did set up a little. I will be making this for Thanksgiving next week! Great pie and easy to make.

Aunt Shirley's Dietetic Pie

Reviewed: Oct. 22, 2007
My husband is diabetic and he loved this (he didn't know it was sugar free!) It turned out perfect! Juicy but not runny and perfectly sweet (I only used 12 sweetner packets because my apples were really sweet!) Thanks for sharing!
