Philadelphia New York-Style Sour Cream-Topped Cheesecake

Reviewed: Aug. 14, 2007
This is one of my favorite recipes for guests, & my kids all ask for it as their birthday cakes. I even brought it to a birthday party at a big Italian restaurant and had the staff asking for more! I make this using a 10" springform pan & it comes out high, dense & YUMMY!!! I've never used a waterbath for my cheesecakes. I've always stuck by the - cool it in the oven for several hours - method & never have a cracking problem. Using room temp. ingredients is also a must. They are easier to blend, blend smoother, and bake more evenly.

Apple Banana Cupcakes

Reviewed: Oct. 17, 2007
So good the entire batch was gone the same day! I chopped the apples instead of shredding them and I substituted 3/4 tsp allpice for the other spices. Too yummy!! This will now be my fall "go to" recipe!

Carolyn's Holiday Fruit Bread

Reviewed: Nov. 10, 2007
YUMMY! I added a little candied fruit and it came out like a mini fruitcake, but not as heavy tasting. Much better than any storebought fruitcakes. And since I'm in the fruitcake-loving minority, it's an easy size recipe to fill the mini loaf pans. Thanks!!

Bacon Turnip Mash

Reviewed: Nov. 10, 2007
GREAT! I think this is the state veggie in KY, everyone grows them & gives them away, & I'm always looking for a new way to cook them. Thanks a ton!!

Authentic Chinese Egg Rolls (from a Chinese person)

Reviewed: Feb. 1, 2008
These were great! The whole batch just disappeared. I made a few changes to use what was on hand at the time and found them to be more like the rolls that my favorite restaurant in Chicago made. I substituted bean sprouts for bamboo shoots, shiitake mushrooms and used hoisin sauce on the pork as it cooked, left out the MSG too. OMG!!! I may put the ole deepfryer to use more often now. Thanks a ton!

Pork, Apple, and Ginger Stir-Fry with Hoisin Sauce

Reviewed: Mar. 24, 2008
Pretty tasty, but VERY sweet. Next time I'll make it without the applesauce and/or cut back on the sugars.

Indonesian Pork Tenderloin

Reviewed: May 13, 2008
OMGosh!! Made this last night on the grill and it was AWESOME! I seared both sides of a 2-lb loin roast over direct medium heat, then finished it over indirect heat for about 30 min. DH & daughter loved it and tonight I'm using the little that's left over for pork fried rice. I'll definitely be making this one often. Thanks!

Homestyle Potato Chips

Reviewed: Sep. 24, 2008
I grew up on these tasty chips and it's great to see the recipe in print for others to use. Definitely dry the potatoes before frying. I always lay them out on a lint-free dishtowel and press them dry. It's quicker than blotting and since the chips are seperated before going into they oil they cook more evenly. Keep an eye on them though as they brown really fast!

Buffalo Chicken Sauce

Reviewed: Jul. 13, 2009
For the most part this is the recipe that I use in my cafe. For those that asked about a thicker sauce, you can let it continue to simmer over a low heat and it will thicken a bit with some stirring. Also, I don't clarify the butter, I just melt it along w/ the hot sauce and let it simmer. YUM!!!

Chantal's New York Cheesecake

Reviewed: Oct. 19, 2009
This is my GO TO recipe for cheesecake. The keys to no cracking are these: don't over beat the mix, accurate oven temp., and let it set in the oven undisturbed to cool for several hours. I usually make this at night & leave it in the oven overnite. Then my DH puts it in the fridge when he gets up @ 6 in the morning. And don't forget that the sour cream topping ( 1 cup sour cream & 2-3 TBL sugar mixed well. Apply to cake during last 15 min of baking) can fill any imperfections, but smooth it nicely as it won't spread during baking.

Cabbage and Noodles

Reviewed: Mar. 30, 2011
I make fried cabbage all the time & this is a nice change. All I added was some red pepper flakes for a bit of zing. It's a great dish to take to our church potlucks!

Ranch Crispy Chicken

Reviewed: Jul. 28, 2011
Made this for the family & I was the only one that liked it. They couldn't get past the sour tang of the ranch flavor. I'd make it again, but with only 1/2 the ranch mix and add some Parmesan cheese & Cajun spice to the crumbs instead.

Slow Cooker Pernil Pork

Reviewed: Aug. 16, 2011
OH MY GOSH!!!! Can't I rate this higher than 5 stars?!? Just made a batch and I know I could eat it all right our of the bowl. I modified the ingredients a bit to what I had on hand, dried oregano, and reg. chili powder, added 2 jalapenos and some cilantro. It's in the crock pot smelling sooo yummy. I have some Spanish rice in the freezer from another meal & that will go into tortillas with the pork for burritos tonight. I can see this used in a dozen different ways; kabobs, shrimp, chicken... Oh I'm so happy! Thanks for the great recipe!
