Honey Roasted Red Potatoes

Reviewed: Jul. 28, 2009
WOW...sooooo good! I did add more salt and tripled the honey like some suggested. My family loved these, and found ourselves dipping our grilled chicken in the sauce...awesome!

Grandmother's Buttermilk Cornbread

Reviewed: Jul. 28, 2009
Beautiful, wonderful sweet cornbread. I followed some advice from other reviewers: I only used 1/2 cup sugar and since I didn't have buttermilk I took out one TBSP milk and added one TBSP apple vinegar and let set for 5 min. So yummy...as we say here in the south, "make you wanna slap your momma."

Blue Cranberry Sauce

Reviewed: Nov. 29, 2008
This made the house smell wonderful. Husband tasted and said, "it's a winner!"...but, no one ate it at Thanksgiving, the leftovers are still in the fridge. Great recipe, I guess no one wanted to try it!

Brown Sugar Smokies

Reviewed: Nov. 29, 2008
Wonderful, my son's new fave. I only wish the recipe stated apprx. how long to cook in oven. I ended up leaving them in for 40 or so min. Worth the trouble, though!

Sweet Restaurant Slaw

Reviewed: Jul. 7, 2008
I have found several recipes on this website that I consider "lifetime" recipes, or "keepers." This is one of them. I didn't personally eat it b/c I am a picky eater, but my family loved it. My husband said it tasted like at the chicken place, that it was definitely a "keeper." I followed the recipe exactly with no changes. Thanks for the easy and well received recipe!

A Plus Fair Corn Dogs

Reviewed: Jul. 7, 2008
The corn dog nuggets I made from this recipe, following it exactly, were good but not special. They tasted just like the frozen kind except with better quality hot dogs b/c you put them in yourself. The word "fair" in the title had my hopes way up, and I was disappointed. They are nothing like the ones at the fair, atleast the ones I've been to in the South. I won't make again considering the let down and extreme greasiness.

Yellow Squash Patties

Reviewed: Jun. 29, 2008
The best!! I didn't exactly follow the recipe but found it to be an awesome idea for squash from the garden. I omitted the onions and only had a dab of cheese, but I only used two squash to feed three people. I just blotted the shredded squash with a paper towel and threw in a heaping 1/4 cup flour and a loose 1/4 cup corn meal, an egg, salt and pepper, and a little cheddar cheese. I fried them up in a good amount of hot oil(i made huge patties, eight total)...awesomeness. A real keeper in my country kitchen. We will plant squash again next year just to make these!!

Spicy Bean Salsa

Reviewed: Jun. 21, 2008
Everyone raved about this when I served it at a party (I don't eat this kind of stuff, picky). I am going to make it again for a dinner tomorrow since it has become a requested dish. I followed the recipe exactly except I accidently bought canned tomatoes that had basil and oregano added, but everyone loved it. oh, I forgot, I only added half of the salad dressing becasue it looked like plenty. A real keeper!!

Chocolate Surprise

Reviewed: Dec. 27, 2007
This is a good recipe as in it all works out. I did get 36 cookies. However, it is very complicated and the finished product tastes just like something you can buy at the store already made. While the taste was very good it was just not worth messing up all my pans, utensils and entire kitchen!! If you decide to make these, be aware of the time you will spend making these and cleaning up afterwards. My son enjoyed helping putting the marshmallows on. I topped with almonds instead of pecans. When i frosted the cookies, I set them on a wire rack with foil underneath. I had to scrape the foil and reapply the frosting twice. It did not "set" until the next day. But don't skip the frosting because it is the tastiest part. It was something different but I won't make again...not because of the taste or it didn't turn out right, because of the mess!!

Chocolate Cookie Bark

Reviewed: Dec. 27, 2007
This recipe is very good but not really extra special. Great if you just want something easy. I did not care for the peanut butter taste. I may make again someday but will leave it out. Again, good, but you can search and find something better.

Homestyle Turkey, the Michigander Way

Reviewed: Dec. 27, 2007
I have never cooked a turkey before and I was very nervous. I decided to experiment because my husband brought home a free bird from his boss. I happened to pick this recipe for my maiden voyage and it is the best culinary decision I have ever made...this bird was divine. My mother-in-law said it looked like it could be on the cover of a magazine and it tasted better than any turkey we've ever had. I felt like an award winner with this turkey!! I followed the recipe exactly and the timer popped out at about four hours (12lb. bird). I took it out and let it set before cutting into. Absolutely delicious!! I am thirty years old and my first turkey recipe will be the one I use until I am ninety!

Sausage Rolls

Reviewed: Dec. 11, 2007
The taste of these rolls are actually five stars but I gave it four because it is too much filling. I think you either need to use 3-4 cans of rolls or cut the sausage and cheese in half. The way stated makes each bite overwhelming with the sausage mixture. I will definitely make again because the taste is to die for, but I will only put a little, little bit of the filling on the dough. Maybe also just roll each crescent roll up like normal with just a dab of filling.?.

Bacon Cheese Muffins

Reviewed: Dec. 6, 2007
These were very good but seemed to be missing something. (I did leave out the lemon pepper because that just sounded gross to me.) I used more cheese and bacon than called for-should have used more! It did have a flour taste. I think I will make them again but use buttermilk and use cayenne pepper instead of garlic powder. I think it is the garlic taste throwing them off...maybe garlic salt instead? Anyway, they are almost outstanding just needs someone to find the trick!

Creamy Almond Candy

Reviewed: Dec. 6, 2007
Very good but I made a boo-boo. I bought smoked almonds...oh well, they tasted fine in the candy. However, I thought the almond extract flavor was too strong. I thought they were great-but-the flavoring kept me from indulging too much. I sent them to work with my husband. I think I will use the base of this recipe again (think no almond or almond extract...just crushed oreos!!) but not the entrie recipe.

Banana Sour Cream Bread

Reviewed: Nov. 24, 2007
Good recipe...bread baked to perfection following recipe with no changes...however, I was a little disappointed because of all the reviews hyping it up and it was only what I would expect from a good banana bread, not beyond. Again, recipe is perfect, just not anything different about this bread.

Sugar Coated Pecans

Reviewed: Nov. 16, 2007
Yummy!!!!!I usually don't care for pecans but I always try anything I fix to make sure it is good enough to offer to other people...Yummy!!!! I took advice from other reviewers and used vanilla instead of water, that is the only change I made. My husband dived into them...I told him I was going to give them away for Christmas presents...he looked up as he pulled the tin toward him and said "not these!"

Fluffy Peanut Butter Frosting

Reviewed: Aug. 8, 2007
I made this last night to add some flavor to a chocolate/choc. chunk store bought cookie mix I made. WOW!! It was perfect! I only added 2 tbsp. milk and stopped because it already looked perfectly fluffy at that point. The taste is wonderful. I think the trick is using the mixer for a long time. My son was helping and he loves using the mixer so I let him mix til his heart was content and the results were fabulous! I've already printed this one out and added to my recipe book! I just realized my user name is similar to the submitter...no, we are not the same person!

Blackberry Pie I

Reviewed: Jul. 8, 2007
Perfect pie!!! We just had this after dinner tonight. We picked the blackberries from the fence line running down the driveway. I followed the recipe exactly (but I used store bought frozen pie crusts) and it was absolutely delicious. First fruit pie I ever made and it was perfect. Thanks for the great recipe that made me feel good about myself! It's so cool to use ingredients from your yard to feed your family! The crust was perfect thanks to the great temp/time directions! Will use this every season!...Vanilla ice cream is the topper (literally)!

Shrimp Fettuccine Alfredo

Reviewed: Apr. 16, 2007
I made this last night and it was great. It tasted very much like I would expect at a resturaunt. The only thing I did wrong was making the sauce too thick. I was so scared from all the reviews it would be too soupy that I over did it (and added too much cheese) and it had a chunky texture. However, it did not affect the taste at all, just the appearance. It tasted wonderful! I did have to make two batches of sauce as it was not enough for a pound of pasta. I couldn't believe I pulled it off, that I actually made alfredo from scratch. Very easy to do! Also, the garlic and shrimp sautee was delicious by itself. My son ate one from the plate while I made the sauce (I took them out beofre I started the sauce as they were "ready to eat" shrimp) and he said "aww yeah, babe." Great recipe!
