Scalloped Potatoes

Reviewed: Apr. 21, 2008
this was great, my boyfriend really liked it. i was trying to use up the rest of my coconut milk so i used that instead of regular milk and also cut the butter by half as suggested by other reviewers and used half cheddar cheese and half gouda. I used white wine instead of sherry (i didn't have sherry and it was suggested by some to substitute wine). i also put some extra mixed cheese on top before the cornflake crumbs (my boyfriend really like the baked cheese thing ;-) ) and it was great! pic

Barlow's Blackened Catfish

Reviewed: Apr. 21, 2008
wow! my boyfriend said this was the best he's ever had!! i've never made catfish (or had it for that matter...) so i didn't know what to expect but it was awesome. it had a really nice subtle (for my taste) spicey kick to it. it was a bit hard for me to spread the called for amount of spices over my fish though, but i got the job done ;-) thanks for this great recipe! pic

Whole Wheat Pasta

Reviewed: Apr. 18, 2008
this was my first time making homemade pasta and i don't have a pasta machine or a mixer so it was all me baby!! and it wasn't really thaaaat hard. the worst was how long it took to unroll the noodles after i cut them (i rolled the dough and sliced to desired width). i had to add a bit of water to get the dough to stick together in the beginning. i halved the recipe and it was perfect for 2. my boyfriend even loved the noodles, and he was really skeptical.. :P thanks!!!

Banana Sour Cream Bread

Reviewed: Apr. 12, 2008
so delicious and moist! my first time making banana bread and it was great :) i didn't have any baking soda so i used baking powder instead, doubled the amount, and didn't add the salt. it still didn't really rise though, but who cares when it tastes this good??

Balsamic Roasted Red Potatoes

Reviewed: Apr. 11, 2008
this looks so good, and i love balsamic vinegar, but i was disappointed when i made this. the only thing i can think of is that i used regular, not red, potatoes. the flavour was okay, but just nothing special. i didn't find it to be worth the extra effort. i think they might have been better another way i read on here where someone cooked the vinegar into a sauce by accident.. pic

Old Fashioned Brown Gravy

Reviewed: Apr. 11, 2008
i've never made gravy from drippings before and this turned out perfect!!! though i didn't measure anything.. i just took all the drippings (beef) and added some flour and a dash of milk. oh, and i added just a bit of beef stock. i had the corn starch ready, but i'm amazed that i didn't even need it! i'm glad that i read the dirctions and decided to wait because it only took about a minute to thicken up. anyway, thanks for posting this, it saved my butt today! :)
