Louisiana Crab Dip

Reviewed: Jun. 16, 2009
1/4 teaspoon hot sauce for a cajun dish? I started out thinking that was odd, but thought maybe the horseradish would make up for it. My only addition at first was to add shrimp. After 30 minutes of cooking, I took it out of the oven but it was still a little runny so I was going to put it back in the oven and decided to taste it first. I had to get busy and start adding red pepper flakes, green onion tops, bay seasoning and black pepper. I think it's a great base, but certainly not enough heat for a dish that is from Louisiana.

Quick Yeast Rolls

Reviewed: Jun. 15, 2009
I made these to go with spaghetti tonight and was so very pleasantly surprised! They were light and delicious..and very easy to do. I love it that you don't have to knead the dough! Next time I make them to go with an Italian style dish, I'll add some garlic butter on top before placing in the oven.

Jalapeno Popper Wontons

Reviewed: Jun. 12, 2009
My husband, daughter and I had a snack-y type supper last week and I made these guys...They were sooo good. I also served lettuce wraps with pork and shrimp along with steamed pork dumplings. The crispy.spicy wontons balanced it all out. So easy and so tasty.

Scalloped Potatoes and Onions

Reviewed: Jun. 11, 2009
My husband really likes scalloped potatoes and I haven't made them in such a long time. He was so surprised when he saw them on the table and commented more than a few times how good they were and asked to have them more often. I had to use sour cream because I only had about a tablespoon of mayo, but that's the only change I made. I can't get over how creamy these were!

Homemade Black Bean Veggie Burgers

Reviewed: Jun. 8, 2009
This was a great lunch. I added jalapeno and a few mushrooms because I needed to use them. Very tasty. I didn't have a problem with them falling apart; I placed the bowl of mixture in the fridge while I cleaned up the kitchen and it had time to come to a nice consistency before making patties.

Deep Dish Lasagna

Reviewed: Jun. 4, 2009
This is absolutely the best lasagna I've ever had. I had to sub a coupla items because we don't have ricotta or Italian sausage where I live (China) so I subbed tofu and made my own sausage. I only had two eggs. Added some extra veggies (zucchini, mushrooms, grated carrots) but it would have been just fine without that. I would rate this higher if I could. I even had some for breakfast this morning and it was even better. I can't believe more people have not tried this recipe. After reading the reviews of other lasagna recipes, I found that most people made changes that were already included in this outstanding recipe.

Rosemary Ranch Chicken Kabobs

Reviewed: Jun. 1, 2009
UPDATE: The first time I made this I was underwhelmed and couldn't believe all of the great reviews. However, I made it again yesterday and WOW... they were tender and delicious. We threaded red onion, mushroom, red and yellow bell pepper and a cheery tomato between the chicken pieces and it was restaurant quality. Glad I tried it again..went from 3 stars the first time I tried it to 5 stars! Served with saffron rice and grilled pineapple. 1st review: These were very tender. They did not wow me, but they were okay. I served with veggies marinaded in my homemade Italian dressing, then grilled, grilled pineapple with cinnamon, cayenne and brown sugar and a simple steamed broccoli with garlic and lemon butter. A nice supper.

Breakfast Sausage

Reviewed: May 31, 2009
I was having a problem this morning because I didn't go to the store yesterday and was out of eggs, bacon, etc... I had some ground pork and decided to make sausage and homemade biscuits and used this recipe as my guide as it's been some time since I've made sausage. It was excellent. My daughter has never cared for sausage but she ate two patties as said it was wonderful. My only addition was to add a tad of crushed fennel. I am in China and am experiencing culinary challenges due to the lack of ingredients that I am accustomed to and am finding that homemade "anything" is far superior.

Beth's Spicy Oatmeal Raisin Cookies

Reviewed: May 28, 2009
Some reviewers have mentioned that this is the same recipe as listed on Quaker's website and while indeed, the ingredients are extremely similiar, it's Beth's years of tried and true AMOUNTS of those ingredients that does the trick for me. I used crasins because that's what I had, plus some wonderful pecans I happened to have. Fabulous cookies says the daughter and hubby. Next time I may spinkle in a tad of ginger for kicks.

Fettuccine Alfredo IV

Reviewed: May 28, 2009
I was making my chicken alfredo with veggies and penne pasta and used this recipe for the sauce. I tasted it and thought it was fantastic but then decided to add about a tablespoon of cream cheese to bump it up a notch. It was delicious either way and I have no need for another alfredo recipe.

Mexican Rice III

Reviewed: May 25, 2009
I made this as a side dish for Cinco de Mayo and it was really good. I had to sub yellow and red bell pepper for the green because that's what I had in the fridge. Will make again for sure.

Hot and Sour Chicken Soup

Reviewed: May 25, 2009
This was good. I just had to tinker with the vinegar and red pepper flakes to suit my taste, but all in all, it was good. I omitted the chicken because I was serving chicken and steamed dumplings. I will definitely make again. I had some left over and ate it for lunch; it was even better, but not quite as pretty.

Haitian French Toast

Reviewed: May 23, 2009
Husband and daughter loved this. I kinda cheated and placed sliced french bread in oven at 200 degrees for 10 minutes instead of letting bread sit out for 4 hours, otherwise made as written. Served with syrup on the side.

Cinnamon Raisin Pinwheels

Reviewed: May 15, 2009
My husband really, really liked these. He ate 5! He saw me making them and asked me to add pecans and really that was the only added ingredient. I don't pour in all of the milk at one time when making biscuits, bread, etc... because some days you need it all and some days you don't depending on the weather. I floured my parchment paper, my hands, the rolling pin for rolling out the dough and had no problem. When rolling the dough into the roll, just use the floured parchment paper to roll and it won't be sticky. After it's rolled, you might want to place in the fridge for a few secs to make slicing easy. I didn't use the muffin tins and only cooked half of the log. I made icing by using 1 cup confectionary sugar, 1 tbsp vanilla and maybe one tablespoon of milk. (Add slowly until you get the consistancy you like.) Just drizzled it over hot rolls with a spoon and they were beautiful!

Mock Lobster

Reviewed: May 14, 2009
I used the exact ingredients called for. Made chicken breasts and thighs. The only thing different was I seared the meat for a few minutes before placing in the oven. (It was raining and I couldn't use the grill.) My daughter said that the breast did indeed taste like lobster dipped in butter and the meat was so tender. I ate the thighs but did not dip those in butter. The skin on the thighs tasted like a Hawaiian dish. YUM.

Garlic Cheese Chicken Rollups

Reviewed: May 13, 2009
My husband does not like chicken. He just doesn't. So when he said, "This is so good" and I said, "would you want to eat it again" and he said, "Anytime", I knew it was a winner. Instead of dipping in butter, I marinated it in homemade Italian dressing and the breading stuck great. I also made my own garlic cream cheese, sauteed mushrooms and spinach (because I needed to use them) and it was restaurant quality. Thanks for this easy, delicious recipe!

Big Soft Ginger Cookies

Reviewed: May 12, 2009
I am not tempted to eat sweets because of a medical condition, but these smelled sooooo good and I just HAD to try a little bite...needless to say I ate the whole cookie. I used brown sugar instead of white and maple syrup instead of molasses because finding stuff here in China is a challenge. I also didn't roll in sugar--I just used a glass dipped in sugar to flatten the cookies and I got to kill two birds with one stone--always a plus. These were delicious; don't hesitate to try them.

Cinnamon Griddle Cakes

Reviewed: May 3, 2009
My husband looked up at me while eating and said, "This is so good. I was a little worried when you told me what you were cooking. Make these again." That is an automatic 5 stars. I don't use corn syrup, so omitted it. Also used a tad less milk because I slowly add the milk when making pancakes, biscuits, etc... Sometimes you need it all for the right consistency and sometimes you don't. Didn't make the topping, just used maple syrup.

Cinnamon Swirl Bread

Reviewed: Apr. 30, 2009
I messed up and didn't see that it was supposed to sit overnight. I didn't have anything else to serve for breakfast and my hubby was dying to have some (the house smelled sooo good!) so he ate it after it sat for 10 minutes. I used brown sugar for the topping and then after it sat ten minutes, I made a cinnamon roll glaze and poured over it. He said it was wonderful.

Praline Biscuits

Reviewed: Apr. 28, 2009
I saved this recipe a few days ago and finally made them this morning for breakfast for my husband and daughter. They really liked this. I agree with the previous reviewer who said that it'd be easier to mix it all up and I'd add a little extra pecans/butter/cinnamon/brown sugar on top. I will try that next time.
