Fried Cauliflower (Egyptian Style)

Reviewed: Dec. 14, 2013
Eliminated step one as suggested. I used 1 tablespoon tomato powder instead of paste, put in 2 tsp of cumin (instead of 1), 1 tsp garlic powder and 1 tsp of salt into the batter. Adding enough milk for a thick batter (bit more then cake like). Just hand whisked the batter in a small bowl. Fried them in coconut oil. Beautiful color, just a bit snappy on the inside for a nice crunch, great flavor. Def. a winner with the kids.

Lemon Poke Cake II

Reviewed: Sep. 15, 2012
I knew I'd seen this recipe somewhere but with Key Lime Juice instead of lemon. Used a Duncan Hines mix and a bunt pan. The Lemon Lime combo was wonderful... If you like Key Lime Pie you would like substituting Lime for the Lemon...

Porcupines

Reviewed: Apr. 30, 2012
Great Recipe. But I broiled the meatballs in the oven for 15 minutes instead of browning them on the stove. Saved me having to stand there. Also i put the rice and 1/2 cup water in the microwave for 5 minutes on high to get it started cooking (did not have instant) and let it cool a bit. this worked perfect and the rice was not hard. Finally I sauteed the onions, added garlic and finely chopped celery instead of celery salt and the garlic powder. Just enough to release the flavors. Used the 2 tsp of Worcestershire in the tomato sauce as suggested by another person and also some Hot Sauce to taste to spice things up, Not wanting to make mashed potato's LOL I served them over perogies. My family scarfed them up.

Irish Shepherd's Pie

Reviewed: Apr. 9, 2012
I had leftover leg of lamb from easter dinner. So I diced that up. The other thing i changed was adding the "thin mushroom gravy leftovers" to the quantity of water. Still added all the spices called for in the recipe. "This was a wonderful meal". Will make again with either ground beef or lamb.

Addictive Sweet Potato Burritos

Reviewed: Jan. 29, 2012
I used black beans as suggested. Using smaller tortilla's I was able to make a larger quantity of snack size, I tucked in the sides before rolling them up and sprayed them with some pam before i baked them. I thought I would have some for freezing but the entire platter got inhaled by a group of teens, LOL I guess that says it all. Next time I would use a bit less sweet potato per serving. Excellent meal or after school snack.

Oven Baked BBQ Ribs

Reviewed: Jan. 26, 2012
Made the additional sauce as someone recommended but found I simply did not need it so I'm going to try to freeze it. These were like everyone said. Covered them for 2 hours then uncover for 1 hour. No need to baste. Fall off the bone Good. I made the California Cole Slaw Recipe to go with it along with some homemade mountain bread. So nice to have a summer meal in the middle of winter.

Manicotti

Reviewed: Jan. 10, 2012
As I make a very large pot of meat sauce and freeze several Italian meals at a time I thought I would try a Manicotti one this time. I only followed this recipe for the filling and I did not cook the noodles like all my frozen meals with pasta in them. simply used a piping bag to fill the hard shells adding just a bit more sauce to the bottom and the top and then freezing. Once thawed and baked the pasta turns out perfect and not mushy. A wonderful addition to my "mom is to busy to cook days". Very pretty dish to serve for company too and all I had to do was pull it from the freezer. Excellent

Roasted Chicken Noodle Soup

Reviewed: Jan. 7, 2012
Doubling the recipe to take care of a few families with colds running thru their house. I used 10 chicken thighs boiled with salt and pepper de-boning (this made an excellent chicken broth so I did not have to buy it and was able to control the salt content by taste. Eliminated the evap milk otherwise i followed the qty for "16". Excellent. I served with cornbread and crackers. When i portioned out our families amount I dashed in some Curry just to add a little heat as our family like spicy. Not overwelming just a nice undertone. Makes a wonderful "get well soon" meal to take to friends.

Fast Chicken Soup Base

Reviewed: Oct. 1, 2011
Didn't change a thing. Love this base because it makes plenty. With only 3 in our family it does freeze well to. I just thaw out what i need adding either egg noodles, rice or wild rice according to what we feel like. So nice in the winter and when we have colds. I think sauteing the veggies brings out their color and flavor a bit more.

English Trifle

Reviewed: Apr. 23, 2011
http://allrecipes.com/Recipe/English-Trifle/Detail.aspx# i used a duncan hines white cake mix but made it with vanilla pudding and almond extract to make an almond pound cake. used that instead of the plain white cake mix. Amazing. I also substituted fresh blackberries on the top in a nice pattern instead of cherries as that is what I had. everyone loved it. signature dessert

Quick and Easy Yorkshire Pudding

Reviewed: Aug. 11, 2010
always been afraid to make Yorkshire Pudding. Not this way, they were wonderful. Family gobbled them up, super easy to make. **have a friend in UK she said to add 2 tsp. of stuffing mix to this recipe. LOL her hubby a chef and argued that only 1 tsp was necessary. I went with Carol and it was a nice addition. Try it out... quite nice addition

Amish Breakfast Casserole

Reviewed: Jan. 26, 2010
I just got a text message from my step daughter asking if I remember the breakfast casserole I made at christmas. LOL Of course it was this one. She being a very picky eater, asked me to make this again this saturday. I love this recipe and it is so easy. The only thing different was that I put it all together the night before and stuck it in the fridge. then before opening presents put it in a "cold oven" during the pre heat and by the time we were done it was done. Outstanding recipe.

Stir-Fry Snap Beans

Reviewed: Jul. 18, 2009
Very quick meal. I sliced up some pork loin added to it and doubled the sauce ingredients. I also popped the beans into the microwave for a quick steam before adding to the pan as we like our beans more done. Everyone including my Autistic son enjoyed it (and he is a very picky eater).

Cucumber Salad I

Reviewed: Jun. 9, 2009
This recipe is adaptable to what you have ripe in your garden. In addition to the cucumber and onion I threw in a sliced bell pepper, some cherry tomato's and snap beans because they were just coming ripe in my garden. Used Red Wine Vinegar instead of rice wine because that is what I had. Delicious and refreshing.

Tangy Shrimp and Scallops

Reviewed: Oct. 14, 2008
This was really good, but scallops weren't all that. So the second time we did this we just doubled up the shrimp and grilled some small steaks with it. YUM
