Grandmother's Buttermilk Cornbread

Reviewed: Oct. 10, 2007
Awesome 5++ stars. To the readers who had dry bread.... 1/4 lb not 1/4 cup butter!!! This might have made a difference if you read it wrong, 1/4 lb is 1/2 cup of butter. Also I put it in my greased preheated iron skillet for 25 min, excellent!!

OK grease 2 quart casserole dish, preheat over 425, make roux in saucepan: melt butter then whisk flour cook one minute until it resembles wet sand, add rest and cook until slight thick. put one layer potatoes, one layer onions, one layer sauce and continue once again. Top off with paprika and parm cheese, cook 425 5 minutes then 375 for 50 minutes. Awesome and actually very easy. Must try will not be sorry

Fettuccini Carbonara

Reviewed: May 8, 2008
Very Good, I changed a few things to make this restaurant quality: I only used 2 shallots, finely chopped, no onions, only 1/2 lb bacon and 4 boneless skinless chicken breast, 1 can peas, 1 cup heavy cream, 4 egg yolks, 1& 1/2 c shredded parm cheese and 3 cloves garlic. I grilled the chicken breast, slice them thin and set aside. I also cooked the bacon along with the shallots, then added garlic. I added the peas (drained) and the chicken at the end, topped with fresh cracked pepper. Very good and VERY easy

Basil Shrimp

Reviewed: Jun. 5, 2007
I wish I could give this 10*. I was a chef for 5 years at an Italian restaurant and we always were looking for different specials to run, too bad I did not have this. Restaurant quality. The only change I made was that I also added 2 chicken breast thinly sliced to the marinade and grilled it together over low heat on a piece of aluminum paper (sparyed with non stick spray). I also left the shell on the shrimp while marinated. My husband loved it and he is picky. A++++++

Peanut Butter Cupcakes

Reviewed: May 4, 2007
Excellent, however I would advise against not using cupcake papers. I opted to grease the first batch with shortening, disaster, they are so moist that the bottoms stuck to holder.

Fluffy Biscuits

Very good but missing something, maybe a little more salt, will try that next time. I used 1/2 butter and 1/2 shortening, also increased sugar to 1 T. I only had to bake for 7 minutes, may have made them smaller, I used the top of a glass drinking glass to cut. Topped with melted butter. Also used buttermilk

Sensational Strawberry Shortcake

Reviewed: Jun. 30, 2007
This is excellent. I made as directed except for the nutmeg, I added 1/2 tsp pumpkin pie spice. So good, not crumbly at all, the key is not to over mix. Just toss until moistened! I used my hands to do this. A keeper and use the sweetened whipped cream recipe from this site

Eve's Chicken Quarters

Reviewed: Jul. 4, 2008
I used 4 large leg/thigh quarters so I doubled the rice (my hubby loves rice), used 2 c water, LARGE (24oz I think) can of chicken broth, 16 oz sour cream, and cut way down on the garlic. I am Italian and love garlic but it is way too over powering in this dish. After making this twice I have cut down to 1 clove of garlic and that is it. Very easy and good. Thank you
