Grandma's Corn Pudding

Reviewed: Oct. 16, 2005
This wasn't what I was looking for. It was a little to "eggy" for me. Kind of like a corn quiche. I had some corn pudding at a party the other evening and it was more firm and didn't have so much egg taste. I'll keep looking. This wasn't bad, just not what I wanted. I'll see how the left overs taste tomorrow.

Kansas City Steak Soup

Reviewed: Sep. 13, 2005
This was really delicious soup. I used more carrots and celery than called for and added potato. I just didn't see how 1 carrot and 1 stalk of celery could be divided by 16 servings of soup. Next time I will cut the ground pepper down because it was a little too hot for my 3 year old. One soup trick I learned when working at a soup kitchen is to boil the carrot peels, celery tops and onion skins in the water to make a stock. After it has simmered for several minutes, strain out the peels and use the liquid in place of the water. It really adds a nice flavor and richness to the soup.

Chilled Blueberry Soup

Reviewed: Apr. 6, 2010
My 8 year old son was reading this morning. He suddenly blurted out, "Blueberry soup?" I told him that yes, there are soups made from fruit. He suggested that I look on allrecipes.com to get a recipe, not doubting that there would be one here. I made a few modifications as follows: I cut the sugar down to 3/8 cup and doubled the blueberries because I thought the orange flavor totally overpowered the blueberries. I didn't really like the idea of chunks of blueberries in the liquid, so I pureed it. Then I didn't really like the skins so I strained it. Very delicious and very colorful!

Alcohol-Free Mint Julep

Reviewed: Jun. 25, 2007
Very yummy! Easy too. I had to make a second batch of the syrup later in the day because I liked it so much. I also tried it with Limeaid and I loved it that way. It's a very refreshing drink and I am sure I will enjoy them throughout the summer.

Cherry Angel Food Cake

Reviewed: Jan. 29, 2005
Delicious! I don't know if mine turned out just as it "should", it was not real tall and fluffy. It didn't end up filling up the pan, but it had GREAT flavor. I iced it with whipped cream, sweetened with powdered sugar and flavored with vanilla and some chopped cherries. I later compared the recipe to the one in my Betty Crocker book and noted that there are less eggs in this recipe among other things, which might explain why it wasn't real tall and fluffy. I will try it again for another occasion.

Mendocino Chicken Salad

Reviewed: Sep. 6, 2005
DELICIOUS!! The supermarket didn't have smoked chicken so I substituted smoked turkey breast. I toasted my almonds before adding them to the mix. I added a few sprinkles of black pepper. I fixed it the night before our picnic to let the flavors blend. It was wonderful. We had it on croissants and in wraps at the picnic. The next day I had it on a cheese bagel. Tastes good any way you eat it.

Rainbows

Reviewed: Mar. 2, 2002
Fun to make! To make sure I got even portions of dough, I weighed the whole batch and then divided it into 10 parts. When it was time to roll the dough out, I cut pices of paper for patterns. I put the paper under wax paper and then rolled the dough to cover the paper. I put the log of dough in the freezer to hasten chilling. Then I cut them into slices and then cut the slices in half. I thought this was easier than trying to cut the log in half before slicing. These were much easier to make than I had imagined.

Asian Beef Skewers

Reviewed: Sep. 23, 2005
Wonderful. My husband raved about them. I used Petite Sirloin (it was more affordable)in place of the flank steak and it was very tender and easy to eat. I think I will use more garlic next time and possibly some red pepper flakes too. I served the skewers with Sesame Green Beans, sticky rice and Caravelle brand Sweet Chili Sauce which I buy at an Asian market. If you use bamboo skewers, don't forget to soak them in water for a couple hours. I was rushing things and didn't soak them long enough, so the tips caught fire on the grill.

Southwestern Style Chalupas

Reviewed: Sep. 25, 2005
The whole family really liked this. I was in a "rush" so I used canned pinto beans and I cut the pork up before putting it in the crock pot. I also cooked it on high to speed things along. I added about 1/4 cup chopped onions and a teaspoon or so of garlic powder. I have two young children so I didn't add extra spices as some have suggested. Both kids really liked dinner tonight. I served the meat in home made fry bread with lettuce, tomatoes, olives, cheese, sour cream and onions. It was fantastic. A keeper for sure!

Prime Rib

Reviewed: Dec. 29, 2003
Excellent! I put the roast out on the counter for 1 hour before putting it into the oven. (I cleaned the oven first.) 12# roast, I cooked 70 min. and turned it off. It was so good. Everybody loved it. I liked that this one was roasted with a cover. In the past I had done Prime Rib in an open roasting pan (as per other recipes) and my oven was always a MESS afterwards and it was always so smokey. I dind't have a bit of problem with smoke. I'll definitely do this again.

South of The Border Chicken Soup

Reviewed: Feb. 3, 2003
My family really likes this soup. I make it in the crock pot, so I use fresh carrots and potatoes for vegetables. It's easy and so delicious!

Irish Potato Casserole

Reviewed: Mar. 21, 2000
I watch my fat intake, so cut the butter to about 2 Tbsp. It was still plenty buttery! I also added a little extra onion. These were great and brought compliments from the family.

Indian Curried Barley Pilaf

Reviewed: Feb. 24, 2012
I wish I had read some reviews before making it but I was in a rush and wanted something new. Instinct told me that the amount of curry wasn't going to be enough so I doubled it. I still thought it was on the bland side. I plan to add garlic and increase the turmeric and pepper and will probably quadruple the curry powder. I liked the texture and it is a good way to add a healthful grain to the diet.

Spicy Grilled Chicken

Reviewed: Jun. 28, 2007
This was very tasty. I didn't have breasts on hand so I did thighs and legs. I removed the skin from the thighs before marinating. I baked the chicken for about 1/2 hour at 350 and then grilled it to finish it off. It was very moist and delicious. I'll definitely use this recipe again.

Cinnamon-Roasted Almonds

Reviewed: Dec. 18, 2005
These are so delicious! And so simple to make. I followed some of the suggestions and I used 1 tsp. cinnamon and I also added 1/2 cup brown sugar. They are very similar to some that we get at the Holiday Food & Craft Fair and also at the Scandinavian Festival. These will make great gifts, if I don't eat them all first.

Cinnamon Corn

Reviewed: Oct. 9, 2005
Tasty. Reminded me of something to serve for Thanksgiving or Christmas dinner. I cut back the sugar and it was still quite sweet. For the topping I put just a teaspoon of sugar and 1/2 teaspoon of cinnamon and that seemed like plenty. My 3 year old really liked it!

BBQ Dry Rub

Reviewed: Sep. 16, 2005
Very delicious! I was kind of rushed so I parboiled the country style ribs for 10 minutes, let them cool slightly and then rubbed them. I let them sit on the counter for about 10 minutes and then grilled them for about 10 minutes to finish them off. They were tasty and tender. Next time I will probably try to use the rub as intended.

Supreme Strawberry Topping

Reviewed: Sep. 6, 2005
YUM! Was wonderful on crepes and Dutch babies. The vanilla is such a nice touch. I have used the basic recipe to make toppings with blueberries, blackberries and raspberries. All have turned out yummy. (For the blackberries I mashed them and removed some of the seeds.)
