Home-Fried Cheese Sticks

Reviewed: Jul. 10, 2012
OK, Ms Missy...I made a double batch, sticking half in freezer. First batch disappeared in record time. I was told I was seen sticking extra in freezer but couldn't I go ahead and cook those too? 24 for 6 people was not enough. Went remarkably well with a big pitcher of lemonade! Kids and adults raved over them. BIG keeper! Thanks Melissa. Everyone is looking forward to a repeat!

Paleo Omelet Muffins

Reviewed: Jan. 12, 2013
These are great for big and little hands. I like to add chopped mushrooms and then saute' them lightly with veggies in a bit of butter before adding to egg mixture. This ensures that the veggies are not crunchy when muffins are done. My grand kids love to grab one and eat it on the way to the bus stop, daughter either eats one on the way to work or saves it for mid morning snack. I love them cold. Good stuff and my Sunday Morning Brunch Bunch requests them when brunch is at my house!

Beer-Boiled Shrimp

Reviewed: Oct. 14, 2007
This is better than "outa this world"! I did reduce the butter (Whew!) to 2 sticks (to reduce my guilt) and then followed recipe as directed. I also saved liquid and used it in a big pot of shrimp creole and it was one of the best I've ever done and whatever guilt I had is long gone!! Thank you.

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!

Honey Dijon Brussels Sprouts

Reviewed: Apr. 4, 2012
I'm not fond of finding a recipe and rearranging, deleting, adding until after I've made it the first time. Stacy, I have to tell you, I didn't change anything with this recipe and these are some of the BEST Brussel sprouts I've ever made, bar none!!! I wanted something different, remembered the sprouts and made them to your specs and had them with some BBQ'd ribs. Cut them in half, boiled them for almost 5 minutes which left them with just the right amount of crunch. The combination of butter, honey mustard dill and onion is delightful. Please know that your recipe has been saved and shared already with my daughter and 2 neighbors. I can't wait to do this one again. TY!!

Beer Cheese Pretzel Dip

Reviewed: May 24, 2011
I made this for a family gathering at Christmas, New Year's and put a bowl out with fresh veggies to hold off the crowd til dinner could get done at Easter. There has never been any leftover. My 8 year old GS said we should just plan on having it "everytime" we get together even when he just comes to visit for a weekend!! Delicious, easy, simple ingredients. Can't ask for more. **UPDATE** Well, here it is late 8/2011 and he's here visiting. He specifically asked that we make this today. Heading to store for another brick of cream cheese. Doing only "half" of this recipe is a complete waste of time in my house!! When kids ask for it by name and dig in with glee with their celery sticks, how can you say no to that kind of celebration!!!

Eastern North Carolina BBQ Sauce

Reviewed: Dec. 21, 2007
Being Tarheel born and Tarheel bred, if this recipe got any more "eastern Carolina" we'd be getting our feet wet! I do pulled pork often and this sauce is its crowning glory! Many, Many thanks for a taste of home!!

Jayme's Coleslaw

Reviewed: Jun. 4, 2008
Some recipes have so many things added to give you bells and whistles it's difficult to remember what you're eating. This recipe is simple, few ingredients and anything but boring. Truly a great coleslaw and one that goes well with everything from Carolina pulled pork to burgers and dogs off the grill. This is a keeper! Thanks for a great recipe.

Buffalo Wontons

Reviewed: Jan. 13, 2010
This recipe appeared too good to be true to wait until game day so having all the ingredients on hand we did a preview! I had saved half of a rotisserie chicken from my fav grocery store which cut waaaay down on prep time. Followed recipe didn't change a thing and it is beyond delicious. The vinegar and hot pepper sauce gave it just the right kick. I saw one grand child with one in each hand and wanted to take a photo but had to wait for batteries to be re-charged and by the time I got back to the camera, there were not enough wontons left on the platter to take a decent photo! Ranch dressing was the nibblers choice and I was informed that this could be a Super Bowl tradition any ole time I felt like it!!

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.

Fabulous Foolproof Lasagna

Reviewed: Jun. 23, 2008
A rare event was having all the ingredients on hand including the ricotta which hubby mistakenly purchased instead of the "cottage cheese" which was on his grocery list. Lucky us! Then, something to feed 3 starving kids after an afternoon of swimming lessons and pool cavorting, this was an answer to a prayer. Enough leftover for a nice serving for Hubby's lunch the next day. Fast, easy, and delicious. Can't ask for more. Many thanks!!

Grilled Portobello Sandwich with Roasted Red Pepper and Mozzarella

Reviewed: Jul. 11, 2010
Did some shopping yesterday and found some really nice portobello's and with nearly all other ingredients on hand, decided to give this recipe a try. I used thinly sliced red onion, a bit of garlic powder, forgot I was out of the fresh and tomatoes and basil out of my garden. The sandwiches were delicious and well seasoned. Very flavorful, easy, and a great substitute for a meatless meal. Adding this to our list of favorites. Thank you for sharing!

Brie en Croute

Reviewed: Nov. 3, 2009
If nothing else, timing and presentation are worth 5 stars. However, if you believe you eat first with your eyes, then this is truly a remarkably delicious crowd pleaser. My daughter's neighborhood has a wine tasting get together 4 times a year and this past weekend she was the hostess for the event. We found this recipe and decided that on looks alone it would get a good review. It was wonderful! I can't tell you how many copies we've made of this recipe to give to the party goers who raved over it. Deliciously gorgeous, very easy prep. Can't ask for more!

Zucchini Pineapple Bread

Reviewed: Jul. 26, 2010
One loaf has been dug into with great gusto by my DH! He said it was utterly delicious, as is, then lightly toasted one slice with a dab of butter and all I could hear was the ummmmm, ummmmm's! The pineapple gives it a tangy moistness, the raisins give it the right amount of sweetness and the wonderful crunch of the walnuts makes this a keeper for all seasons! Your timing with this recipe in the midst of a bumper crop of zucchini, was perfect. Thank you for sharing.

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!!

Sweet-n-Sour Kielbasa

Reviewed: May 31, 2010
Family and friends gathered for a birthday party and I have to tell you the guest of honor was the crockpot full of this recipe! I like having something "hot and cooked" among the many dips, and various other finger foods at parties and this worked like a charm. Put it in the pot and forget it til time to serve. This will prove to be a favorite in future events at our house. Copies of the recipe were made for several guests who loved this delightful dish. No muss, no fuss, just good eating. Thank you!!

Crescent Bacon Cheese Tartlet

Reviewed: Nov. 24, 2009
Didn't change a thing! They are delicious hot out of the oven and just as good cooled, on a buffet table where they attracted a lot of attention. They make a very pretty presentation. I shared your recipe with several people who were raving over how good they were. Will definitely make this again.

Oven Baked Chicken Teriyaki

Reviewed: Feb. 25, 2013
Awesome! I keep my ginger in the freezer and didn't realize I had so little, which amounted to about half of what is listed in this recipe. To us, and we're ginger lovers, and it turned out to be a perfect amount. Didn't have the sweet wine but used Rice wine vinegar and 1/2 tsp. sugar. We loved it, grandkids have asked for it since and their mom asked for the recipe because the kids were asking for her to make it at home. Very tasty, served with Asian style sticky rice, steamed broccoli and the end result was perfect!! MANY thanks!!

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!!
