Banana Pudding with Meringue

Reviewed: Jun. 20, 2009
Five generations of cooks can't all be wrong. We use granulated sugar and that's the only difference made. The pudding is rich, very rich. Until it has cooled, it will be soupy but not after the wafers absorb the liquid. If it's too sweet, cut back on the sugar. Brings back a lot of memories of church picnics and Sunday desserts! Thanks for sharing.

Exchange Gang Pasta with Shrimp

Reviewed: May 28, 2009
Most excellently orchestrated! Totally delish. Didn't change a thing except to add tomatoes at the end. So, when are you going to create another masterpiece?

Banana Cake VI

Reviewed: May 19, 2009
I am currently enjoying one of the best banana cakes I've ever encountered. This recipe makes a lot of cake that is tender, moist and a flavor explosion in your mouth. I had my doubts when I opened the oven after 1 hour and the cake was nowhere near done. I know my oven is about 10 degrees short of normal which probably accounted for the cake not being done. Considering that, I let it bake for another 40 minutes. Took it out of the oven and immediately put it in the freezer for 45 minutes, took it out and frosted it with cream cheese frosting. The cake is not too sweet which allows for the rich frosting. It is truly delicious and I have tossed all my banana cake recipes except for this one. This recipe works!

North Carolina Pulled Pork BBQ Sandwiches

Reviewed: May 18, 2009
We grew up in eastern NC and this should be considered the official state sandwich. To make it spicier, add more hot sauce or make the vinegar and red pepper flakes in advance of preparing the pork, which makes it hotter, or add more hot sauce. The pork is excellent and topped with cole slaw brings back a lot of memories!

Juicy Roasted Chicken

Reviewed: May 11, 2009
This is exactly how my Grandmother did her roast chicken and I proudly follow in her Germanic footsteps. She always lifted the skin of the chicken and inserted little pats of butter along the breast and at the thigh and butter inside the cavity with the celery. An easier recipe would be hard to find. Truly delicious.

Creamy Au Gratin Potatoes

Reviewed: May 11, 2009
Thank God somebody knows the difference between "Au Gratin" and "Scalloped"! These are absolutely delicious. Followed suggestion of nuking taters first. Fast, easy and a regular addition to our menu. Thanks for sharing!

Sweet and Spicy Pork and Napa Cabbage Stir-Fry with Spicy Noodles

Reviewed: May 10, 2009
This just sounds good but, not having a piece of pork in the house forced me to use chicken tenders which were already thawed. Simply put, outstanding. Loved the sauce; just right!

Cheese and Bacon Potato Rounds

Reviewed: May 2, 2009
For a serving for one, I nuked a potato, let it cool completely, sliced it, topped it with goodies listed and put it into a hot oven for about 5 minutes. Oh my, my, so good!

Marinated Scallops Wrapped in Bacon

Reviewed: Apr. 19, 2009
Just over the top delicious. Super easy to make. I did cook the bacon a wee bit and let it cool before wrapping the scallops. The bacon was done very nicely and truly complemented the scallop. I can't wait to do this dish again!

Quick and Easy Pancit

Reviewed: Apr. 13, 2009
My hubby is Filipino and when some of his family visited and had been in the states eating our food for so long, I thought I'd be brave and prepare one of their favorite dishes; pancit. I followed this recipe with only a couple exceptions. I added small shrimp along with the chicken and used "Silver Swan" soy sauce from the Philippines which we are fortunate enough to get at a local Oriental market. I have to tell you, I have never received so many compliments on a dish as I did this one. Our Philippine relatives were stunned that an American could make their national dish just like they do back home. My husband's aunt even asked for MY recipe. Oh my gosh, talk about anchored. Have since made this dish combining chicken and pork cut into bite size pieces and included the shrimp as well. Hubby took it to an office pot luck and while there called to ask me to fax the recipe to his office so he could copy it and give it to 13 people who had asked for it. I don't do this often but often enough to get rave reviews every time it graces our table! And yes, it makes a lot but we enjoy it even more re-heated and it is the perfect dish to share at a potluck. I can't thank you enough for sharing this tremendously popular recipe!

Pan De Sal I

Reviewed: Apr. 11, 2009
Made these with no changes to recipe. We get our Pan De Sal from a local Oriental market and they get it from a bakery in Jersey. Not exactly fresh by the time it gets to us here in VA. The aroma hit my Filipino hubby "before" he got to the door of our home. I just wish you could have seen his smile when he saw these rolls on our table!! Many, many thanks for sharing. These will also grace our table when family comes to share Easter dinner!!

Cheddar Bacon Hamburgers

Reviewed: Apr. 10, 2009
I made these last night for dinner while grandkids are visiting through Easter. Followed the recipe except for "garlic" and added 2 teaspoons of plain ole mustard. Went to get my camera to snap a photo of burgers which was holding a place of honor among all the condiments, lettuce, tomatoes, pickles, onions and when I finally found the camera and got back, 4 of the burgers were already on a bun and being seriously worked on by folks who you'd think had never had a burger! Next time... and there will be a next time! Thanks for sharing.

Peachy Bread Pudding with Caramel Sauce

Reviewed: Apr. 8, 2009
I used the caramel sauce over a pineapple bread pudding. It just knocked the socks off my old recipe! This smacks of a rainy day and a good book. Thank you for sharing!

Pan-Seared Chicken Breasts with Shallots

Reviewed: Mar. 30, 2009
My package of chicken breasts "looked" like there were 4 but there were only 3 humongus sized breasts. Followed recipe exactly. My husband and I split one of the larger breasts and now we have dinner all set for another night. The sauce from the white wine, chicken stock and butter mixed in with the shallots and garlic is absolutely wonderful and I'm no garlic fan. This I will definitely do again! Thanks for sharing.

Spicy Sausage and Rice Casserole

Reviewed: Mar. 30, 2009
Having an early dinner tonight and I just finished this recipe using mild Italian sausage. The aroma is beyond belief and the spoonful I swiped is pure heaven. I'll share this one with daughter, working mom of 3, who is always looking for great casserole dishes with readily available ingredients. Well, this one surely fits that category!! Thank you for sharing.

The Best Unbaked Cherry Cheesecake Ever

Reviewed: Mar. 30, 2009
Soooo easy and amazingly delicious. I did these in a muffin tin using Vanilla Wafers as a crust only because they were available. My goal was to have mini cheesecakes I could pack for my husbands' lunch. Worked beautifully. Thank you for sharing. PS; this would be a lovely afterthought as a light dessert following a heavy holiday meal.

Chocolate Brittle Surprise

Reviewed: Mar. 27, 2009
My daughter found this recipe last night and called to tell me about it. She said her 3 children (my babies) took most of them to school today for their snack. I usually do a similar recipe kinda like toffee using graham crackers. I just finished these using the Saltines and set them in the fridge to cool. My house smells like a candy store from the melted butter and brown sugar; heavenly! Oven temps absolutely vary. I have a thermometer in mine and when baking something in my daughter's oven I have to remember that her oven is about 16 degrees HOTTER than mine and oh how that plays a serious role in something overbaked or even burnt! The oven thermometer is well worth having and you can find them at super stores and in most cases, your favorite grocery store. Excellent recipe, super easy to prepare and ingredients almost always hanging out in the pantry. Thanks for sharing!! I will absolutely do these again.

Strawberry Muffins

Reviewed: Mar. 25, 2009
Girrrrrl, my house smells like Heaven! I have a new neighbor and wanted to bake something to take over to her and her family. My strawberries were at the use 'em or lose 'em stage and I found this recipe. OMG, I hope I can keep Hubby out of them so there's enough to share with our new neighbor!! I did increase the amount of berries. Worked like a charm.

Cafeteria Macaroni and Cheese

Reviewed: Mar. 25, 2009
I made this again for tonight's dinner with baked salman and cole slaw. Didn't have sour cream to increase the amount of sauce so I added about 1/4 cup buttermilk. Also used Panko bread crumbs. Very good mac n cheese dish and we'll probably wipe it out at lunchtime tomorrow!
