Grandmother's Buttermilk Cornbread

Reviewed: Mar. 31, 2009
Now I have a reason to buy buttermilk for something other than biscuits!! This was absolutely delciious. It's probably just great as it's written, but I did make a few canges. I reduced sugar to 1/2 cp, added about 1 tbsp honey, added about 1/3 cp leftover corn, and creamed the softened butter rather than melted it. It makes great cornbread muffins. A little sweeter than the cornbread I usually make but so delicious! **UPDATE** I halved this recipe and jazzed it up by adding 1 tbsp minced red bell pepper, 1 tbsp grated cheddar, 2 minced slices of jalapeno from the jar, and 1 tbsp frozen corn. I also was able to cut down the butter a bit because I figured the juice from added ingredients would pick up the slack.

Fabulous Fried Cabbage

Reviewed: Mar. 29, 2009
A good guide on how to cook cabbage. Tasty just steamed with chicken broth. But, in the end, its just cabbage.

Cola Pork Chops

Reviewed: Mar. 29, 2009
Yummy! Browned chops with garlic powder and pepper, then used half ketchup and half bbq sauce with almost a whole onion and minced garlic added to the sauce. It makes a lot of sauce, so if you have 5 or less chops you can cut it in half safely.

That Good Salad

Reviewed: Mar. 27, 2009
Made it just as written, except with olive oil instead of veg oil and grape tomatoes cut in half. Added 2 or 3 cups chopped chicken. Delicious! Make sure your romaine is nice and crisp. UPDATE: The second day it's not *quite* as good - only because lettuce gets a little soggy from the dressing. This makes a huge amount of salad so if you're only making for 2, either cut in half or don't put dressing on until its on your plate.

Amazingly Easy Irish Soda Bread

Reviewed: Mar. 18, 2009
I'd never had soda bread before so I wasn't quite sure if I hit or miss the mark. The bread was good. I added 1 cp raisins and about 2 tbsp carraway seeds. I also substituted 1cp wheat for white flour, but I think it was too dense. If you want to use wheat, maybe only sub in 1/2 cp. A good treat for my St. Patrick's dinner, though not something for raisin-haters out there.

Slow Cooked Corned Beef for Sandwiches

Reviewed: Mar. 18, 2009
Wow! This was my first time trying corned beef as it wasn't something my mom ever made, but I loved it! So easy and flavorful. I had a problem with space - two briskets in a dutch oven is almost too much. Had a few small spills. Water didn't cover the brisket as directed but came out just fine. I boiled cabbage, red potatoes, and carrots in the dutch oven after I took the brisket out and it imparted a great flavor on the veggies. All around delicious!

Butter Flaky Pie Crust

Reviewed: Mar. 15, 2009
I like my good ol shortening crust better. The overwhelming taste of butter is almost gross. Also, the texture was too chewy. Granted, I might have not done something right - either didn't keep the ingredients cold enough, overworked the flour/butter, didn't chill long enough, or didn't bake long enough. I'm not sure.

Sesame Green Beans

Reviewed: Mar. 9, 2009
Not bad. Depends on how you like your beans. Recipe calls for way more sesame seeds than is needed.

Grilled Fish Tacos with Chipotle-Lime Dressing

Reviewed: Mar. 9, 2009
Good, solid marindate. I omitted old bay, lime zest, and hot sauce and marinaded overnight. Fish baked at 350 for 15 or 20 min came out tasty. Went well with yogurt sauce and mango cabbage salsa in the tacos. Maybe nothing spectacular or eyepopping because the flavor gets covered up in the taco, but tasty and easy nonetheless.

Norwegian Pancakes - Pannekaken

Reviewed: Mar. 8, 2009
Great recipe! It's pretty close to crepes. I wanted to make mine a bit healthier so I used half all purpose flour and half whole wheat flour, sifted together. Based on other reviews I added a splash of vanilla. For those without a blender, you can mix it just fine with a spoon. Used 1/3 cp measurer to pour into the pan. They came out fantastic! I made some blueberry orange sauce to fill them with...absolutely delicious!

Cinnamon Sour Cream Biscuits

Reviewed: Mar. 4, 2009
These biscuits are an interesting change from the usual buttermilk biscuit. If you really enjoy biscuits, you have to try this one! The dough seemed very dense to compared to shortening/buttermilk biscuits, but the end result was fluffy and light. Followed the recipe to the T except I was 2 TBSP shy of 1 cup of sour cream, so I added a bit more milk (~2TBSP).

Mom's Cucumbers

Reviewed: Feb. 8, 2009
I had to make do with what I had - sesame seeds and rice vinegar. It turned out pretty good, I suppose. An interesting flavor sensation, to be sure. I only used one cucumber and I'm not sure how well it scales down, but one was more than enough for a side dish for two.

Garden Fresh Tomato Soup

Reviewed: Jan. 19, 2009
Wow - this was great! I like to make the recipe as-is, but I usually have to make do with what I have, and since I like using up perishables, there are some modifications to my recipe. For tomatoes I used 2 Cento brand Peeled Whole Italian (28oz, like another reviewer's version). I sauteed the onion with garlic and some celery in olive oil (aromatics ftw) first. I also added some sour cream at the end. The cloves I was suspicious about, but it turned out to be a good addition - maybe better as a bouquet in the pot with some other herbs since I don't have a food mill. I blended only half of the soup to give it a more chunky texture, which we like.

French Bread Rolls to Die For

Reviewed: Dec. 23, 2008
Pretty good rolls, a little too sweet for my taste - will probably only use 1 tbsp sugar next time. Update: Kept same amount of sugar, used 1/2 cup milk and 1 cup water instead of 1 1/2 cp water. Bread turned out much better that time, more fluffy and tasty! Update: Tried olive oil instead of veg oil and it made it taste more like sourdough. Type of flour you use is very important! I noticed a difference with blue ribbon flour for bread.

Onion Chicken in Balsamic Sauce

Reviewed: Oct. 5, 2008
The chicken was very tender but the flavor was a bit too sweet for my liking. I had to add some corn starch to thicken the sauce because it was taking too long. Might try again, the sauce seems like it could be pretty good with a few modifications.

Five stars for the salad dressing! I'm not sure if I'll use Ramen chips in there next time though.

Shrimp Linguine

Reviewed: Oct. 5, 2008
A nice solid base recipe. I modified it slightly to suit my tastes, but not significantly. Thanks for the other reviewer hints on how to make the shrimp turn out well. I boiled briefly in water with a mixture of paprika and chili powder, then rinsed the shrimp immediately in ice cold water.

Scalloped Potatoes and Onions

Reviewed: Oct. 5, 2008
I hadn't liked scalloped potatoes as a kid and decided recently to give it another shot. This recipe worked out very well. It's very easy to make. The only change I made was substitute light sour cream for the mayo and topped with shredded cheddar cheese. Delicious!!
