T's Sweet Potato Fries

Reviewed: Apr. 7, 2011
The family thought these were fantastic. Following others suggestions, I did not cook in the microwave prior to baking. I simply sliced mine real thin and they cooked up in 30 minutes and the edges of most of them were crispy. The thinner you slice, the better I think they crisp up, if that's what you're looking for. Keeping this recipe. Thanks!

Lepp's Marathon of Love

Reviewed: Mar. 28, 2011
Hands down, the best recipe I ever tried. As per another reviewers suggestion, I doubled the recipe. The family just gobbles it up, too. Much love.

Pumpkin Parfait

Reviewed: Mar. 10, 2011
This was really tasty but I have to admit that I couldn't just put it in a cup and call it done....I made a cookie crust (no bake) in a 9 inch pie plate and poured the mixture into that. Then chilled overnight. I found that it needed just a bit more pumpkin pie spice for flavor, but hey, if you love pumpkin pie...this is a recipe for you.

Cajun Seafood Pasta

Reviewed: Feb. 24, 2011
Wonderful dish!! As I ate I thought it reminded me of something I've eaten at Red Lobster....it was that good. I did have to do some things different based on what I had on hand. I didn't have enough heavy cream so I made a slurry of a cup of whole milk and 3 tsp. cornstarch. Added this in as the heavy cream started to bubble just a little. Substituted crab leg meat for the scallops. No Swiss cheese either and my pasta on hand was a spaghetti noodle. Even with what I had to change, this was a most wonderful meal. Thanks for this recipe!

Scarlett's Best Ever Sugar Cookies

Reviewed: Feb. 3, 2011
Very nice! I didn't have any cream of tartar so I just added about a teaspoon of lemon juice at the same time as I added the vanilla. Definitely flatten these cookies unless you like tall, fat cookies. Thanks for the recipe.

Chicken Fried Venison Steaks

Reviewed: Jan. 28, 2011
Oh, Deer!! These were fantastic steaks. Tender and tasty. I don't usually measure unless I'm baking but opted to do so with this recipe as it was my first time cooking venison and I didn't want to screw this up. I made a salt water brine and soaked my venison steaks for 4 hours prior to preparing them. I had 4 steaks and barely had enough of the breading mixture for all 4, so there wasn't any left for the gravy. Cooked these in my electric skillet at 325 degrees, 4 minutes per side and didn't crowd the skillet (that lowers the oil's temperature and affects your final outcome) I've never caramelized onions in hot oil, so I skipped that part. I caramelize using the low and slow method. I opted to make a simple bechamel sauce since I had no bread crumbs left. This was loved by the whole family and I tell you....I don't want another plain ol' chicken fried steak. I want mine to be made with venison from now on. Thanks so much for this recipe and for showing my husband that deer meat can be delicious when cooked properly.

Classic Whole Wheat Bread

Reviewed: Jan. 19, 2011
I haven't baked any bread all winter and this is only the second loaf of bread I've made using whole wheat flour. It came out really well! Found that I only needed 1 and 1/2 cups of the all purpose flour. Oops. Almost forgot I did use bread flour NOT all purpose. The rising time was pretty right on for me. The bake time was different, though. I baked mine at 375 degrees for 30 minutes. This only made one loaf. Next time I won't do the egg wash, as I wanted a softer crust on my wheat bread.

Applesauce Bars

Reviewed: Jan. 12, 2011
These are great! I followed the recipe with the exception of the all purpose flour. I prefer the texture of cake flour and found it worked very well with this recipe. The bars held together and I didn't feel they were too thin at all being baked in a 9x13 inch pan. They did, however have to be cut into squares directly in my pan. They don't come unstuck without some effort. Topped them off with powdered sugar. Not a fan of frosting. This recipe is a keeper!

Grilled Brown Sugar Pork Chops

Reviewed: Nov. 18, 2010
The sauce had a pretty good flavor, but the flavor only coated the outside of the chops. I'm thinking if I marinated them IN that sauce it would have helped. I let my meat rest for about 30 minutes prior to grilling. You want to get the chill off the meat first. Then let the meat rest AFTER grilling for 10 minutes or so, giving the juices time to reincorporate back into the meat. Makes for juicy pork chops for sure. The grilling time was right on for the chops I used. They were on the thin side and had bones. Thanks for the recipe. This is the first thing I have EVER grilled.

Apple Pie Filling

Reviewed: Oct. 4, 2010
I've never made an apple pie before but this filling gets 5 stars from me. I cut the recipe in half and let the apples sit in a bowl filled with lemon-lime soda instead of lemon juice. Thanks for this recipe!!!!

Peach Muffins

Reviewed: Sep. 20, 2010
Excellent!! I had some fresh peaches to use up before they went completely bad on me. These were a big hit with the family! We could not stay out of them. I followed the recipe with one exception (if you count the nuts, then it's two)...Instead of using the full amount of oil called for,I used 1/2 c. of oil and used applesauce for the remaining oil. This is a keeper! Thanks.

Monkey Bread Made Easy

Reviewed: Sep. 12, 2010
I want to say 4 and half stars...they turned out almost perfect for me. Firstly, I thought I was feeding an army so I used 3 tubes of the really big biscuits! I just upped the amounts of everything else by a little bit ( I eyeball a lot of ingredients.) Made my own brown sugar by adding some molasses to the white sugar and threw in some crushed pecans in about half the batch. Thanks for such a great recipe, Kat! Usually when I make monkey bread in the budnt pan I end up with uncooked dough. That didn't happen with these. :D

Tartar Sauce I

Reviewed: Sep. 11, 2010
Had a craving for fish sticks and forgot to buy tartar sauce....no biggie...I'll make my own. This sauce is very simple and taste great. We didn't wait for it to chill. I just made it and served immediately. The whole family likes this one. Thanks for the recipe! I can check one more thing off of the list of store bought items that I will now be making fresh.

Honey Mustard Chicken with Pretzel Crust

Reviewed: Sep. 8, 2010
This was excellent chicken, Kathleen!! The only thing I left out was the grainy mustard, didn't have that. Baked 25 minutes and it was just right. The hubby requests that I deep fry it next time, lol (if it ain't broke, don't fix it, I say)....he decided he likes pretzels and just didn't know it!

Tracy's Tomato Artichoke Rice Salad

Reviewed: Jul. 16, 2010
We liked this a lot! It could only get better if we'd have let it chill longer. Dinner couldn't wait, so it wasn't real cold but definitely worth the effort. I used the grease off of some bacon to brown my rice in before cooking it. Also used chicken stock instead of plain water to cook my rice. Thanks for this recipe.

Roasted Tomato Salsa I

Reviewed: Jul. 15, 2010
Pretty tasty! Of course we like it hot, so I used 2 jalapeno peppers and removed some but not all of the seeds. I also used 6 large garden fresh tomatoes because that's what we've got. Left out the cilantro (hubby doesn't like it). Mine took longer to char, about 25 minutes. I think I had the oven rack too far from the broiler. I used a blender to combine everything...not big on chunky salsa. Thanks for this recipe.

Sour Cream Cucumber Salad

Reviewed: Jun. 15, 2010
Pretty basic for my tastes. I expected more of a 'zing' in the flavor. I even added a bit of Ranch dressing as other reviewers mentioned. Easy to make and a quick way to use up all these cucumbers we have, though. Thanks.

Creamy Dill Dip II

Reviewed: Jun. 15, 2010
Very nice!! I used a sweet yellow onion because it's what I had on hand. It was quite thick even after adding a couple tablespoons of milk. That fine. I prefer it to be on the thick side. Great for crackers, too. Thanks for this recipe.

Thai Charred Eggplant with Tofu

Reviewed: Jun. 10, 2010
I had no propane for the grill so I broiled 2 large eggplant for about 20 minutes at 500 degrees. Let cool and peeled it.Diced it into bite size pieces instead of diagonal slices. I followed the recipe with the exception of the chili pepper. All I had was jalapeno. So I used one. Served this over Arborio rice. The recipe as a whole, we didn't care for. Hubby discovered he doesn't like cilantro. We do like the eggplant and the tofu, just not in this. I topped it with crumbled bacon for presentation purposes and served sliced tomato along side.Thanks for the recipe. It just wasn't our thing.

Carrot Burgers

Reviewed: Jun. 3, 2010
This was just OK. Very dry and didn't hold together well. I think it should have more carrot and less cornflakes. I also shredded the carrots. Can't imagine how hard it would be to make it hold together if they are diced. You might be able to make them more moist by shredding the onion directly into the mixture. That way you get some juice from the onion, too. The family and I agree, that I won't be trying these again anytime soon. It just wasn't for us.
