Paksiw na Pata (Pig's Feet Stew)

Reviewed: Mar. 11, 2011
I'm giving this a 5 star review just from the reaction my Filipino hubby had when he came home last night and found that I had prepared this dish for him. I am a Gma from the south and although this has been prepared numerous times with southern families, mine was not one of them! DH had mentioned several times how much he would love to have pigs feet and told me I could cook them using the basic ingredients I use for a favorite chicken/pork adobo recipe that we both love. When I found fresh pigs feet in our market, I knew the time had come. Your recipe filled the need for the instructions. I got a great review from him and I only want to pass it on to you. Thank you for making my DH a happy camper!! He said it reminded him of home. You just can't top that!!

Scottish Bubbles and Squeak Patties

Reviewed: Mar. 7, 2011
Had this in files since October with good intentions but didn't make it until over the past weekend. I have no clue why I waited so long. Simple ingredients, even easier to put together and a delicious dish everybody loved. Gk's fell in love with the name and asked when I'd make it again. Soon, very soon!! Thank you, Sanzoe. Grrrreat recipe.l

Buffalo Chicken Dip

Reviewed: Feb. 7, 2011
This was the hit of the evening. Sent the recipe home with everybody who showed up. Totally out of this world with carrot and celery sticks, kids were using Frito Scoops because, according to them, the scoops held more and didn't break (!), caught DH using tortilla chips and we all loved it on the variety of crackers that were offered. This recipe makes me happy to have it in my files! Thank you!!!

Easy Cream Cheese Danish

Reviewed: Feb. 6, 2011
I made this yesterday for our Super Bowl Party today. Got up this AM and one corner of the dish had been emptied with a little note beside it that simply said, "Looked too good to wait, thanks Babe!" I didn't change a thing only because I didn't have time to fuss and it came together fast (I'm in love with fast) and super easy (my hero). DH says for me not to wait until next Super Bowl to do these again. Looks like a keeper...recipe and DH! Thanks sooo much, Natalie!!

Pineapple Bread Pudding

Reviewed: Jan. 27, 2011
I've made this so many times I think I can do it in my sleep. We are great fans of the recipe as written but on occasion I've used half granulated sugar and half brown sugar, tossed in coconut for a little variance added raisins and no raisins, and if my hubs knows this is for dessert, I assure you it will not serve 8! This is his alltime, bar-none, favorite recipe from this site. Big, big thank you!!

Taco Casserole

Reviewed: Jan. 19, 2011
I made this for 30 "starving" EMT's in my daughters' rescue squad. Naturally, I tripled the recipe. I did add 2 cans of green chilies and one of the 3 taco seasoning packets was the "hot" variety. I am now their favorite cook and I've had 19 requests for this recipe. The aroma, alone, is to die for. It was easy, super delicious and VERY well received!! I'm making it tonight for DH and me and freezing half. Thank you Debi!!

Chocolate Cornstarch Pudding

Reviewed: Jan. 11, 2011
I've made this pudding so many times and I really apologize for not rating it sooner. Any time I'm ready for a tasty something of my childhood comforts, I automatically think of chocolate pudding and I always go to this recipe. Most of the time I don't even let it cook off! It is super easy, has all the flavor that only cocoa can provide and it is absolutely delicious. There was no school today because of snow and my daughter called and asked for that "chocolate pudding recipe you always made on snow days for me so I can make it for the kids". Pay it forward baby!! Thanks, Kelly.

Vegetable Beef Soup I

Reviewed: Jan. 4, 2011
I scaled this back to 6 and it was more than enough for 3 adults and one 8 year old and the soup bowls were huge. Served it with Amish bread (this site recipe) still warm from the oven and it was a great meal; hearty, filling and delicious!

White Chocolate Macadamia Cranberry Dreams

Reviewed: Dec. 6, 2010
Made these using dried cherries. Didn't have enough macadamia nuts so tossed in some toasted pecans. We couldn't stay away from them. Testing various new recipes to include as holiday gifts to neighbors. I doubt if these will leave the house! Excellent cookie and totally out of this world delicious!

Holiday Cranberry Chutney

Reviewed: Dec. 1, 2010
I made this to serve with crackers and cream cheese, which by the way, was a big hit. Then I noticed several people using it as a side dish with the turkey and ham we had for Thanksgiving. Either way, it was a big delicious hit!

Slow Cooker Turkey Breast

Reviewed: Nov. 20, 2010
I did this last year with rave reviews! The turkey was done to perfection; juicey, tender and delicious. Saves your oven for baking other things and I'm looking forward to doing it again this year. The only way it could get any easier is if someone put it in the slow cooker for you!

Halloween Eye of Newt

Reviewed: Oct. 29, 2010
Although your "recipe" is nearly identical to mine (sans the green food coloring) I have to offer 5 stars for creativity. Would do more stars if I could. My GK's love Gma's deviled eggs and this is a fantastic idea. I'll be at their house for halloween and I cannot wait to do this for them...and yeah, for me, too!

Old Fashioned Coconut Cream Pie

Reviewed: Oct. 24, 2010
If I could give this more stars, I would! I made the pie as written with the sole exception of making a meringue, which I burned! Not totally blackened but quite brown. The custard consistency was delicious and we agreed the pie was even better after being chilled overnight. I cut it as soon as it got to room temp and as good as it was, it just got better when cold. I have 4 requests to add this one to our Thanksgiving menu. Thank you for a lovely dessert!

Delicious Stuffed Potato Pancakes

Reviewed: Oct. 17, 2010
I made a few changes and will rate the result of those changes. Firstly, this is a great mealtime idea; only my meal was breakfast! Secondly, I will, because of the response, do this again. I had enough egg substitute to use in the potato mixture and only one egg left in the fridge which I used for the "filling". My filling was a good premium breakfast sausage! I omitted the garlic (no big fan, here) and used maybe a couple tablespoons finely diced onion. I pre-cooked the sausage and onion so the onion wouldn't be crunchy, just until the pink was gone in the meat, drained it really well and then continued with recipe as written. I put a drizzle of maple syrup on mine and the GK's wanted a dusting of powdered sugar on theirs. Big tall glasses of OJ, steaming coffee and a delicious breakfast was enjoyed by all!!

Peanut Butter Noodles

Reviewed: Oct. 12, 2010
I've done this using udon noodles, spaghetti noodles, whole wheat and even angel hair pasta. Either one is delicious. I add a few drops of sesame oil and a few drops of Oriental Fire Oil and it's just as good the next day. Well balanced ingredients and makes for an awesome lunch anytime!

Pineapple Crisp

Reviewed: Oct. 8, 2010
After spreading the pineapple in the baking dish, I combined the remaining ingredients and then evenly spooned little dollops of the dough over the pineapple. Total prep time was less than 10 minutes! In baking, the dough spread out and covered the pineapple beautifully with a crisp on the outside, chewy type dough that was delicious! I served it with vanilla ice cream and hubby took leftovers to work, ate it cold, no ice cream and told me he'd be happy if I made this one again! The tartness from the pineapple and the sweetness of the dough was a great combination.

Easy North Carolina Barbeque

Reviewed: Oct. 7, 2010
We loved it and it really took me back "home"! I didn't add the butter, didn't think it needed the extra fat, and eliminated the lemon juice. All the other ingredients were combined and poured over the roast and the slow cooker did the rest. We had the typical cole slaw, baked beans and hush puppy sides and it was outstanding! This is the typical Eastern North Carolina style barbeque and delicious.

Siopao (Filipino Steamed Dumplings)

Reviewed: Oct. 5, 2010
You're right, this is not an easy recipe! However, if you have siopao finatics, as I do, it is well worth the effort. I made this for my Filipino husband for our 28th anniversary. He assures me there will be 28 more!! Thank you for sharing and for such clear instructions.

Berry Cream Dream

Reviewed: Oct. 1, 2010
We made this over Labor Day weekend. I thought the strawberry concentrate was quite tart so added some bar syrup instead of sugar. Just the right amount of sweetness and a very refrishing drink with enough of a difference to make them again! Thanks for a GREAT Drink, Pam!!

Favorite Old Fashioned Gingerbread

Reviewed: Sep. 22, 2010
I just took this out of my oven about an hour ago. My neighbor smelled the aroma out at her mailbox and stopped by to ask what I was baking. I did increase the ginger to 2 teaspoons and while the cake was still warm cut into it to find a moist, not too dense, exceptionally flavored gingerbread. I've made a peach compote to go with for dessert tonight. I am very pleased and will absolutely make this again if for no other reason than to make my home smell like Christmas of years past. P.S. My neighbor also has a copy of your recipe. Thank you!!
