Brown Sugar Bacon

Reviewed: Mar. 11, 2012
This recipe is good but I tweaked it just a bit!!! I mixed together 2 C Dark Brown Sugar, 1 1/2 tsp. cayenne pepper, 1 1/2 tsp. black pepper and 4 tbls. Dijon Mustard. I slathered the mixture on (each slice) 2 lbs. thick sliced bacon and refrigerated it overnight in a gallon sized zip topped plastic bag. The next morning, while the oven pre-heated to 400 degrees, i laid placed parchment on two large cookie sheets and placed a rack on top. I spread the bacon on the racks and baked for 15 minutes; turned each slice over and baked an additional 10 minutes.

Bellini Made Easy

Reviewed: Mar. 11, 2012
I tweaked the recipe just a bit; I made a base of 12 oz. Peach Schnapps, 12 oz. Orange Juice and 6 oz. (Ciroc) Peach Vodka. I filled champagne flutes 3/4 the way up with the base and added Prosecco just barely to the top with just enough room for a splash of Grenadine! Compliments all around; in fact my Brunch lasted well into the night!!!!

Skillet Fried Corn

Reviewed: Apr. 16, 2011
I followed the basic recipe but having read and considered the reviews regarding the grease, after I fried the bacon, I removed it from the skillet and let it drain on a paper towel. I added the veggies to the (remaining) grease in the skillet and sauted them until they were soft; I subsequently removed them from the skillet to drain on a (separate) paper towel. These options actually left very little grease in the hot skillet to which I added the frozen corn. After it was heated through, I stirred in the onions, green peppers and bacon. I happened to have pappadew peppers in the fridge, so I chopped about a 1/2 cup and stirred them in...Delicious!

Cornbread Salad I

Reviewed: Nov. 28, 2004
I made this recipe for the first time last summer for a family bar-be-que; not only was it pretty, it got rave reviews! Even my mom & sister [who both hate beans] were impressed! I find that the longer it chills, the better it tastes!

Awesome Slow Cooker Pot Roast

Reviewed: Feb. 2, 2003
When I fixed this meal, I converted the ingredient measurements to half of the original recipe because there are only four of us and leftovers tend to end up in the trash. My family, however, literally begged for more, so today when I prepare it, I'm making the full recipe! To call it 'Awesome' is an understatement!

Grilled Orange-and-Bourbon Salmon

Reviewed: Nov. 17, 2002
I prepared this dish for dinner tonight and it won raves! For convenience sake, I prepared the marinade a day early and let the fillets rest over night. Not only was it delicious, but it was quite easy, as well! This is an ideal serving suggestion if you're looking to impress!
