Fluffy Pancakes

Reviewed: Mar. 1, 2011
Just made these for National Pancake Week. Very easy and very good. Fluffy and light. I thought I'd have some leftover for later this week, but my husband and I decided that we should honor this day by finishing the entire batch!!

Masala-Spiced Roast Chicken

Reviewed: Feb. 5, 2011
Keeping to my New Years resolution to follow a recipe 100% the first time I try it (though there are ways around that rule). I just made the chicken and I'm very impressed. I had to make my own Garam Masala as I didn't have any pre-made. This was a very educational process. Just look at the number of Garam Masala recipes on this site alone. I chose one and loved the results. Those folks that didn't like this recipe should do some research on how to make your own. The variations of ingredients mean that every time you make this recipe it can taste different from the last time you made it. I'm going to use variations on more chicken, shrimp, talapia, etc. I think this recipe is a true winner for how easy it is to make, yet how complex the flavors can be with some effort. Thank you Countess!!

French Onion Soup Gratinee

Reviewed: Nov. 1, 2010
Fantastic! I made this tonight. I was determined to follow the recipe exactly because of the rave reviews and number of saves. Unfortunately I was out of Thyme of all things. I used Tarragon instead..not the best choice but it still came out fantastic. I'll make this again and again. Note: This soup takes 10 minutes to cool enough to be eaten without getting second degree burns.

Sugar Free Strawberry Jiffy Jam

Reviewed: Sep. 3, 2010
Very good but sweet. Use plain gelatin instead of jello. A little lemon will enhance the strawberry flavor. If the berries aren't that sweet add just 1/8 to 1/4 cup sugar to sweeten.

Pico De Gallo With Beans and Corn

Reviewed: Sep. 1, 2010
This is a perfect starter for Pico. I add some balsamic vinegar, white vinegar and cucumbers (seeded). I also use half a bunch of cilantro. I use a red onion instead of white for the sharper taste. I make a large batch of this and add it to my families eggs in the morning, sandwiches for lunch and tonight I have some fresh shrimp and will add this to the shrimp with some steamed rice. Using this in place of canned (high salt) sandwich spreads saves money and is a healthy alternative.

Spicy Oven Fried Chicken

Reviewed: Aug. 26, 2010
Just made this. I didn't have any bread crumbs for the first time in 10 years so I used crushed corn flakes. I also used a whole chicken that I cut up and skinned. I split the browning part up into two batches to not crowd the pan. I used about two tablespoons of olive oil for the first batch....not enough and the pan was not hot enough. Half the batter fell off. I upped the heat and oil for the 2nd batch and it seemed to work much better. The problem was that wherever I tried to touch the chicken the batter fell off. It still came out delicious. I'm going to half to try this a few times to get the batter sticking issue fixed. I may try an egg or two the next time around. I have a question for anyone to answer: Does anyone else freeze the marinade and bread crumb mix for the next batch? I've been doing that for years and haven't had a problem. If I had raw meet in it I put the expiration date the same as I would for whatever meat I marinaded in it.

Chocolate Mint Cake Squares

Reviewed: Aug. 26, 2010
I made these last night. Very simple. Very good. I wanted to follow the recipe very badly...unfortunately I "sampled" the Creme de menthe. It was just strong enough that when I "sampled" the Mint layer I couldn't taste enough mint...so I added more. Tasting the completed effort today without any prior sampling was a surprise of the extra minty flavor. A little too much, but entirely my fault!! Next time I'll try not to cook like Julia Childs.

Strawberry Oatmeal Breakfast Smoothie

Reviewed: Jul. 29, 2010
Fantastic!! In my repertoire of healthy breakfast meals. Thank you!!. Has anyone tried making this the night before? When one of us is on a business trip and need to rush out extra early it would be nice to gulp down a glass. I'll try it a few times and report back.

Barbequed Ribs

Reviewed: Jul. 27, 2010
UPDATE!! September 5, 2010 - I made these again this weekend. I usually don't make the same food so close together. But this was a special request from my husband who usually just eats what is put before him and I didn't think even knew what he was eating! Again, thanks for this one. July 27, 2010 WOW!! These were the best ribs I ever ever made. Thank you for making me look so good to my family and guests. I "owe" you one.

Oven Fried Parmesan Chicken

Reviewed: Jun. 1, 2010
Thank you Judy for a great recipe. This is in my list of standards! I made this tonight. I had boneless, skinless chicken breasts and thighs. I saute'd 2 cloves of garlic with a skinned and seeded jalapeno pepper in some butter for just a few seconds to flavor the butter. I also added some sweet paprika to the bread crumb mix. 40 minutes in a 375 degree oven worked perfectly.

Grilled Asparagus

Reviewed: Apr. 19, 2010
These were great. I had a little bit of a flair up...the resulting char was deeeelish!! :) I did only blanche them for 2 minutes first. I also cooked them on a grill pan I have. Skewering them is a great way to get kids to try them though.

High Temperature Eye-of-Round Roast

Reviewed: Mar. 12, 2010
Wow! My roast was only 3.75lbs. I only kept it in the oven at 500 for 9 minutes. Having a gas stove that is at least 12 years old I took the advise of a few other posters I turned the oven down to 175 (the lowest it would go) for another hour and a half. It came out perfect. Oh and if you don't have a clean oven...500 degrees will set off the smoke detector. Ugh. :)

Red Cabbage and Apples

Reviewed: Mar. 1, 2010
Wow. First I actually followed the recipe fully. I'm glad I did. This was great. Unfortunately...or fortunately I just found out after 8 years of marriage that my husband doesn't like cabbage!!! He ate the helping I gave him and said it was good. I'll absolutely make this again...but just for myself and company.
