Cafeteria Macaroni and Cheese

Reviewed: Oct. 2, 2007
I've been in search of a good baked mac 'n cheese recipe for years. The recipes I tried were good, but the texture or taste was never quite what I was looking for. I told my husband I wanted baked mac 'n cheese like we had in the school cafeteria back in the 70's. I was so happy when I ran across "Cafeteria Macaroni and Cheese." It was just what I was looking for! YUM!

Catfish Cakes

Reviewed: Jan. 30, 2009
FABULOUS and soooo easy! I began heating the oil first and microwaved the fish 3-5 minutes(used cod). I eyeballed all the ingredients (1 1/2 sleeves of crackers) and by the time I mixed and made patties the oil was ready. This was on the table in no time. Made a sauce of mayo, lemon juice, and ground chipotle pepper. Mmmm so good.

Cookie Balls

Reviewed: Feb. 13, 2009
After trying several methods thru the years of dipping truffles I found the best way is to dip the bottoms first. After they're set, the bottoms make good handles to hold the ball and then dip the top. Very very easy to make in a food processor and the family loved them.

Colcannon

Reviewed: Mar. 17, 2009
Very very good. I learned a lot about leeks today. Number one is to wash well-easier to chop first, then rinse the grit away. Some people won't go into the green at all, other use it all; others halfway, and still talked to another who uses it all but the top quarter of the leaves. I used halfway up the green only bc it seemed like a TON of leeks vs. cabbage/potato ratio, but after sauteeing the cabbage and leeks they reduced down quite a bit and the whole dish turned out wonderful.

Guinness® Corned Beef

Reviewed: Mar. 17, 2009
I made 2 changes - put it in the slow cooker and cut the recipe in half. Slow cooker, good; half recipe, bad. This was so good I was very disappointed I didn't have leftovers. I'll not make that mistake again!

Chicken Breasts in Caper Cream Sauce

Reviewed: Mar. 25, 2009
Wow! Hubby couldn't stop talking about this dish, said it was like something you'd get in a restaurant, even used the word "phenomenal". And from the cook's perspective it absolutely couldn't have been faster/easier to prepare. Made some minor changes - 1/2 salt, 1/2 lemon pepper (not a fan), a little garlic in with the chicken, used a splash of white wine to deglaze the pan, and doubled the cream. Served it with a side of asparagus. Wow! Phenomenal!

Apple Butter Pork Loin

Reviewed: Jan. 28, 2009
Outstanding! Tasty, moist, and a true comfort food. Didn't have apple juice on hand so I mixed some apple butter with water - worked wonderfully. I received some Apple Butter as a gift and didn't think I'd ever use it, but now I know it won't last long enough. :)

Chocolate Brittle Surprise

Reviewed: Mar. 27, 2009
This turned out great! But nearly every time I make toffee my butter separates, and cooking in the microwave was no exception. I think the people talking about it being "oily" or "greasy" might not realize their butter has separated. As soon as you see oil beginning to separate it is possible to quickly stir it back together, like I did. I've heard stirring in 1 TBS of VERY hot water can also help.

Banana Crumb Muffins

Reviewed: Apr. 14, 2009
The best Banana Muffins I've ever made (and I've made quite a few). Followed the recipe exactly AND added a little cinnamon and 1 tsp vanilla to the batter.

Brazilian Black Bean Stew

Reviewed: Apr. 14, 2009
10 Stars!! Beautiful and Yummy!! I followed the recipe very closely - used 2 cans of Mexican tomatoes (diced tomatoes with diced jalapenos)in place of tomatoes and green chile peppers separate. I also doubled the mango, and so glad I did. Yes, this could be great vegetarian, but the few bites I had with the ham were even more delicious - I'll double the ham next time. I used ground chorizo and can't imagine making any substitutions like some others have (bought it at Kroger and have bought it at Walmart before, as well). If you use the chorizo,there is no need for chicken broth, there is enough flavor and spice in the chorizo and water is fine. If you have any doubts about this recipe, don't - it's sooo good!

Casablanca Chili

Reviewed: Apr. 15, 2009
Three things I like about this recipe - it's VERY quick and easy to make, it's unique, and I love the sweet and spicy combo. Great way to use up leftover Easter ham. (okay, that's 4) :)

Korean BBQ Chicken Marinade

Reviewed: Apr. 24, 2009
Very very good. I used this on pork and I know I'll make it again with chicken. As for chili paste, I used a hot curry paste I had on hand. It didn't seem very spicy so I added a little Asian chili sauce to taste.

Strawberries and Cream Bread Pudding

Reviewed: May 8, 2009
Fabulous! I used sugar-free strawberry preserves, put my bread in the oven at 200 to dry out (not toasted), and threw in an extra piece of bread and baked closer to an hour to ensure no sogginess. My parents owned a restaurant when I was growing up and customers came in just for my mother's homemade bread pudding. I never thought I'd have better bread pudding than Mom's... until now... :)

BBQ Pork for Sandwiches

Reviewed: May 14, 2009
I didn't have beef broth, but had beer, so used it as CookingMama suggested; otherwise followed the recipe exactly. It's the only way I'll make BBQ pork sandwiches from now on! (Make sure you use a BBQ sauce you like- it could make it or break it for you)

Asparagus with Parmesan Crust

Reviewed: May 22, 2009
This is so good, it's the only way I prepare asparagus. It has never failed me. Plus, my kids used to turn their noses up at asparagus, now they're fans.

BLT Pasta Salad

Reviewed: Mar. 28, 2009
Had some extra pasta after making Baked Ziti and just threw in some chopped tomato, aliced green onions, a couple slices bacon (cooked in microwave), and the ranch dressing. Eyeballed all ingredients for a quick lunch for hubby. He said it was the best pasta salad he's ever eaten!

Monkey Bread

Reviewed: Jan. 26, 2009
I used frozen dinner rolls since that's what I had on hand. Used 24 rolls, let it sit out overnight to thaw, and popped it in the oven the next morning. The family loved it!

Coconut Custard Pudding

Reviewed: Jan. 12, 2009
I'm on a Lo-Carb diet and this was fabulous. I made a half batch and added an extra egg (my eggs looked unusually small). I used half heavy cream, half 2% milk, and of course replaced the sugar with Splenda. I believe it's less than 3 carbs for a 1/2 cup serving this way.
