Kay's Shortbread

Reviewed: Jul. 14, 2005
This recipe turned out fabulous.. I had tried some other recipes on this site for shortbread that turned out terrible. With this one, I did make some minor changes and I loved the results. I used brown sugar instead of white, and only 1/2 tsp of vanilla. I also added a dab of milk to moisten the dough. I didn't use round, but a regular rectangle non-stick cake pan. I wanted to cut out cookie squares, so it worked out wonderfully. I added almond slivers, halved cherries for each little square, and powdered sugar on top. Sooooo yummy! thank you...

Aussie Chicken

Reviewed: Jan. 13, 2005
Once again I have stumbled across an absolutely wonderful recipe. I changed things up a bit, but the honey mustard sauce was the same. I used turkey breast, cutting it into 5 pieces. It almost tasted like chicken and definitely looked like it, but was more tender and juicy. I sauted a little garlic and onion with the turkey in olive oil. I used the grease left from the bacon, mixed with butter to saute the mushrooms. Also, I did use cream honey instead of the regular kind, and a mild mustard. Topped everything with Swiss and Gouda cheese. This meal was to die for, serving with roasted garlic mashed potatoes and steamed butter broccoli. Thanks a bunch!

Chicken and Red Wine Sauce

Reviewed: Jan. 11, 2005
Wow, this turned out fanstastic with all of my adjustments to the recipe. I'm sure the original recipe is delicious, but I just couldn't help myself. I saute'd garlic, onion, red bell peppers in little olive oil until softened. Now don't freak, but I added diced pecans, browning just a little before I added the chicken breasts. Once the chicken was clear of red juices I poured in 1/2 Merlot, 1/2 seasoned broth, and 1/2 brown sugar. We ate this over white Thai rice and it was to die for. It heated up really nicely in the oven the next day at 350 degrees. Thanks for sharing!

Awesome Slow Cooker Pot Roast

Reviewed: Jan. 7, 2005
This is probably the best combination for gravy ever discovered for pot roast. Thank you!! I swear, thanks to this website, my family and friends think I'm the best chef ever!! LOL... If you have more time on your hands I suggest also adding in the slow cooker: whole mushrooms, chopped onion, canned green beans drained, baby carrots, red potatoes and drizzle a little olive oil through the veggies before cooking. Instead of adding salt, I use 3 beef cubes as well which blends all the flavors together nicely. Every now and then I'll add a 'little' DRY white wine and 3 cloves of whole garlic. It's quite impressive to all I fix this for, with little effort to prepare. Thanks for sharing..:0)

Award Winning Chili

Reviewed: Jan. 6, 2005
Absolutely wonderful! Especially with all the help and reviews by everyone! Yes, the thought of all the extra veggies seemed scary to me. I diced absolutely everything, and sauted in olive oil and garlic before adding all the tomatoes and sauces. I didn't have wine, but subbed with weisen beer. I used Lawry's steak sauce by preference, and added 2 1/2 cups of seasoned broth. I like a little more spice, so just a touch more cumin and chili powder did the trick. MMMmmmm.. a little more bacon didn't hurt either! Transfering everything to the crockpot for 4hrs really brought out all the flavors and elimated any crunchy surprises. My husband requested I didn't add beans this time, which was completely okay. I would like to add the beans, plus some corn next time. Thanks!

Southern Pecan Pie I

Reviewed: Jan. 15, 2004
I am in Germany and upon request my German friends asked me to make a pecan pie, saying it was their favorite "American" pie. I used this recipe and the results turned out fabulous! Everybody was drooling from one bite to the next. It was just fairly warm from cooling, but with discovery found that it was perfect for a cold Christmas Eve night. I also used light and dark syrup, which gave a nice blend of taste. Thank you so much!
