Jalapeno Cheddar Homesteader Cornbread

Reviewed: May 31, 2013
I liked this recipe because the cornbread held together and didn't fall into crumbles when we buttered the slices. It was just dense enough to be satisfying to bite, and the crust was wonderfully crispy-chewy, especially the parts in contact with the cast iron skillet. I have made this recipe several times now, with and without the jalapenos. I also put less sugar than the recipe calls for, since I'm a South Texan. Five stars for sure.

Absolute Mexican Cornbread

Reviewed: Nov. 5, 2012
This is a five-star recipe for sure. I made it as directed and it was marvelous, but I was raised in South Texas and I'm used to unsweetened Mexican cornbread. I think next time I will at least halve the sugar, as some other reviewers have recommended. I also agree with them that probably only half the butter is necessary. A bit greasy as is, but I will admit I ate every bite! : )

Blackberry Cobbler

Reviewed: Jun. 27, 2012
This is one of those recipes you can take to a potluck. It attracts attention on the table among all the other desserts, and it tastes as good as it looks, thus pretty much guaranteeing you'll have none left to take home. I have tried it layered as well as rolled up and sliced, and it comes out equally well. The rolled pieces are prettier for presentation, in my opinion. For those who need speedy preparation though, this may not be your cobbler. "It takes a little doing," as my grandmother used to say!

Crab Pasta Salad

Reviewed: Jun. 27, 2012
Very tasty salad! I like the flavor of green pepper and onion, and the dressing was flavorful. Just enough to mix in without becoming sloppy. I will definitely make this again!

Pizza Dough II

Reviewed: Jun. 22, 2012
I thought this was really tasty. I have read the reviews about soggy crusts, and I have to say, it's not the fault of this recipe. It's technique! Things I do to make the crust NOT soggy: Use a pizza stone. Roll out the crust VERY thin and do not allow to rise the second time. Bake the bare crust for 5-6 min. at 425 before putting toppings on. Spread pizza sauce very thinly on crust. Most people use too much, and this puts too much moisture in the dough. Use dry toppings (with little moisture content). Did I mention using a pizza stone? One reviewer suggested baking at 500 F. You can try this, but 425 has always worked for me.

Best Big, Fat, Chewy Chocolate Chip Cookie

Reviewed: Apr. 29, 2012
As other reviewers have commented, this recipe is now my go-to chocolate chip cookie. I made these according to the instructions given and baked them until crispy on the edges. I liked this recipe because they didn't spread on the pan too much and they ended up looking like a bakery cookie, with luscious wrinkly tops! The butter made them crispy, which I wanted. Margarine would have resulted in a chewier cookie. Five stars!

Best Ever Crab Cakes

Reviewed: Feb. 8, 2012
I made these with canned salmon instead of crab because that's what I had in the pantry. I left out the tarragon and replaced the buttery crackers with Panko crumbs. I then added a couple of tablespoons of Asian Chili/Garlic sauce for flavor and color. All other ingredients were the same as the original. I baked them at 400 degrees for 20 minutes, until slightly browned on edges. Nice and spicy!!

Chicken Plum Pie

Reviewed: Nov. 30, 2011
This was good-tasting and easy to make. A few changes: I didn't have puff pastry so I used a regular pie crust baked as directed and brushed with butter. I also used drained canned plums instead of fresh, because that's what I had on hand. Instead of the brown sugar, I poured about 2T of the heavy syrup from the can over the pie. It probably came out a little too moist, but it was still scrumptious! I want to make this recipe as written sometime soon.
