Sweet Potato Pie VII

Reviewed: Dec. 1, 2002
This pie is fantastic. I made no exceptions to the recipe - using real butter and real buttermilk. I did, however add 1 tsp. of pumpkin pie seasoning. My husband, brother in law, and father in law all three loved it, and they were raised down south on grandma's recipe - very hard to impress! Everyone else raved too, and I ended up having to make more! It was not just my first sucessful sweet potato pie, it was the first time to impress my father in law! Thanks for this flawless recipe!

Chicken Breasts with Herb Basting Sauce

Reviewed: Nov. 16, 2002
The chicken in this recipe turned out juicy and very tender. However, in my opinion, it lacked personality, so I added some garlic salt and cajun seasoning. It's a great recipe to get someone started who likes to tweak things a bit. I also prefer pan searing my chicken before baking, so I did, and the outside turned out crisp and wonderful. The house also smelled great while cooking. Will use this again.

Hot Artichoke and Spinach Dip II

Reviewed: Jan. 8, 2002
I love artichokes and cheese, but hate spinach. I have to admit, I could not stop eating this dip. I made it for a New Year's party and thank goodness I doubled the recipe. I served it with parmesan-garlic toast rounds and Triscut crackers. It was a H-I-T. A bit on the expensive side, but well worth it when the compliments start pouring in. One hint: Mix most of the mozarella into the dip, and sprinkle just enough on the top to brown and present nicely. This makes the taste great, and when it cools you have no hard layer to fight with to get to the dip.

Roast Loin of Pork

Reviewed: Dec. 27, 2001
I made this recipe for a Christmas dinner with my family. Not only did *I* think it was marvelous, more importantly, everyone else raved as well. I increased the garlic and lemon juice and didnt have any bay leaves so I just left them out. It was so moist, so tender, and so flavorful. I set it to marinate at 10 a.m. and put it on to cook at 6 p.m. the same day. I can only imagine how wonderful it would have been if I would have waited longer to cook. Will try this on other cuts of pork!! Thanks!!

Creamy Au Gratin Potatoes

Reviewed: Apr. 5, 2001
This is a great recipe, if you like onions. I have been making a dish similar to this for years, substituting broccoli for the onions! To make this dish (similar) and even quicker, try STEAMING the potatoes and broccoli (or onions, or both)and pouring the sauce over it. And, as always, I add more cheese. I found that EXTRA SHARP cheddar is excellent. I make this for family and they always rave.
