Bacon for the Family or a Crowd

Reviewed: Jan. 26, 2008
I have been doing this for years as I learned it in a restaurant I worked at. I line my baking sheet with foil. I didn't see any one mention this tip: Lay a sheet of foil over the top loosely to prevent spattering all over your oven! Remove top foil about 5 minutes before its finished baking for final crisping(I pour off the excess grease at this point,too.)

Sausage Stuffed Jalapenos

Reviewed: Jun. 30, 2008
Exellent flavor! I tried 3 different cheeses, blue fcheese in some, cheddar in some and asaigo in most, and then wrapped in half slice of bacon. Make sure you put on a boiler pan so grease can drain. Also, if at 20 min. the bacon is not done enough for your taste, do not just let it bake longer...the cheeses will run out! Instead, broil for the last 5 minutes to crisp up the bacon.WEAR GLOVES & melon baller does an easy job of taken the seeds and veins out. As you are de-seeding them, put the clean ones in a bowel of cold water in the sink. Run clear cold water thru them or rinse and change water. Soak them while you are preparing other ingredients.Take gloves off and discard as soon as you are finished handling the peppers or you could get the hot pepper juice on your cabinet pulls, frig door, pot handle,etc! After assembly, place the whole pan of peppers in the freezer for 15-20 minutes to get the cheeses really cold so they don't ooze out! UPDATE: To make them faster, after you have the peppers cleaned and soaking in cold water...make little "cigars" of the filling approx. the size of your peppers. Then just place inside the pepper, mash in a bit, stick in freezer to chill. It made filling them go so quick that way...

Fried Onion Rings

Reviewed: Jul. 1, 2008
Boy these are good! Cheap snack... Only thing I did different is that I cut onions (1/2 in.cut thick, they shrink), soaked in coldwater while I was doing everything else. Dusted in flour or bisquik, in a ziplock...then into the batter! Batter should foam abit before you use, beer and flour combo makes bubbles! Absolutely picture perfect onion rings! I would have taken a pic but...I ate them! Freezing about a dozen to see if they will work frozen....

Fisherman's Quick Fish

Reviewed: Jul. 8, 2008
MADE IT AGAIN...This time using Flounder...used up the ends of Green goddess and some Ranch dressing....again...5 star recipe! I love the fact that I used up the ends of bottles and the bottom of the chip bag...things you would normally just discard!So quick to make too! UPDATE! Used whiting this time, a stronger fish and had to sub Mozzarella and Mexican Parm, exellant crust on top!Mixed the cheese and chips in a ziploc, added parsley for prettiness!PREVIOUSLY: SSoooooo easy! I used Tilapia, and used mostly sharp cheddar but added a couple of tablespoons of blue cheese and pepper jack trying to use up some bits and pieces of leftover cheeses. I piled the topping on (i mayt have made extra topping since I just eyeballed it. Good way to use up the bottom of the chip bag! The timing and temperature were perfect....the only tip I would add is: Spray or grease the pan really, really well! The cheese that melted off the edges of the fish wanted to stick and you don't want to fight with it to get it off the pan...use foil lining,too.

Hamburger Potato Casserole

Reviewed: Feb. 8, 2008
Hubby says this one is a keeper! I used cream of celery, 1 can mushrooms, small can of green chilies, garlic salt, parsley flakes, and added grated monterey jack to the sauce. I covered it but I think it you would just end up with sauce as last layer, it would dry out a little more. I put cheddar cheese on last 15 minutes, let it rest for 15 minutes out of the oven to set up. Easy and adapts well to what I had on hand!

Fresh Peach Dessert

Reviewed: Aug. 10, 2010
Pretty dessert! Very tasty! We added Orange juice instead of milk just to add a little tartness to the sweet of the marshmallow! Lightens ups the sweetness a bit!Really great dish to share during the summer months!

Savory Grilled Potatoes

Reviewed: May 25, 2008
Very easy, made with ingredients in anyone's pantry! Hubby loved them! Made exactly as recipe stated, very tasty with a slight smoky flavor.One packet came out crispy, the other one didn't, but either way, tasted great! I used heavy duty foil and made sure seams were folded over several times and the packet puffs up like the old stovetop jiffy pop! Warning! Be careful when opening, hot steam comes rushing out! Also, if you do have a leak, hot butter can burn you, when moving it off grill. This was a fun idea, especially great for a campfire and easily done ahead of time. Tip: Scrub potatoes with a new scotch-brite type scrubby and even that job takes just seconds and potatoes come out much cleaner!

Homemade Pan Rolls

Reviewed: Jan. 7, 2010
Used my new KA Mixer, and I used the dough hook all the way! Step one needed some scaping down the bowl but once it was all mixed, I let it knead for 8 minutes! Make sure you only add 1/4 cup flour at a time at the end....I did not need all the flour(right at 3 cups total) but it all depends on your flour and the moisture in the air. These are so so SOFT and FLUFFY! Almost like Parkerhouse dinner rolls but tastier! Great recipe!

Grill Dough

Reviewed: Oct. 24, 2009
RAINY DAY tips! Made the dough in the breadmaker, followed the recipe to a "T" otherwise.I let it rise/rest for 15 minutes before I prebaked the crust for about 8 minutes @400. Then added all the toppings and baked for 20 minutes. Easy and really good!

Marinara with White Wine

Reviewed: Jul. 26, 2011
Great recipe! I used fresh tomatoes plus a can of tomatoes with chiles for a little zip! I served over a bed of aldente thin spaghetti this time but this would be great on homemade pizza crust or french bread as a Bruschetta! Just add some cheese! You must love anchovies for this one, scale down the anchovies if you have any doubt!

Pistachio Cake III

Reviewed: Mar. 18, 2010
Really moist cake! I had to use vanilla puddinig (I thought I had pistachio but nope) so I used vanilla extract instead. Very pretty for St. Paddy's Day! Used chocolate canned frosting, heated it in the microwave to drizzle. 5 stars for fast and easy!

Simple Knefla Soup

Reviewed: Nov. 16, 2009
Thanks, Winter! Great starter recipe! Hubby is from Ashley, ND so I had to make a few changes to make it like his Mom's! I made the soup part exactly as you said, then added a bay leaf and 1/2 tsp of allspice for flavoring. Used McNess soup base, a favorite in ND! Hubby like his Knephla to be like noodle so I added another cup of flour and less milk, just made to dough consistantly. Then like my MIL does it, clipped small bits off the dough ball, with the kitchen scissors, into the boiling water, Hubby said to double the noodle part next time! He ate all I made by himself! Low calorie, low cholesteral and so quick!

Onesy-Twosy Cookies

Reviewed: Dec. 12, 2009
Excellent cookie! Made these for Thanksgiving and even the people who weren't fond of peanut butter LOVED them! I have to say it is the best peanut butter cookie I've ever made! Chewy in the middle and crisp edges....not dry at all, like the kind the you have to have milk with or you choke? Not this cookie!
