Mahogany Chicken Wings

Reviewed: Jan. 27, 2014
Had very little taste. Did everything according to directions, marinated for 2 hrs., baked as directed and was VERY disappointed. Came out exactly as pictured, but I've tasted better. Will never make this one again.

One of the best sauces I've ever made. Picked up "gravy pack" at Livoti's and added to sauce as it was cooking. Simmered 2 + hrs. Great!!

Eggplant Croquettes

Reviewed: Aug. 23, 2013
Quick?? Not really. I roasted the eggplant and onions for at least a 1/2 hour or more after dicing both very fine. Did season the eggplant and drizzled with olive oil before putting in oven. Since the eggplant was diced so fine, it really didn't need much mashing. Used only 1 egg and two cloves of garlic when making the patties. Got about 9 patties out of the 1 large and 1 med. size eggplant. It was an interesting recipe and one I haven't decided if I'll try again.

Peanut Butter and Pumpkin Dog Treats

Reviewed: Jul. 17, 2013
Although I have no dog myself, I make these treats for the therapy dogs that visit the hospital I volunteer at. They love these treats. As soon as the dogs are finished "working" - and they do work, they come to my desk for the treats before leaving. First time I baked the "cookies" my husband thought they were for him because they smelled so good coming out of the oven.

Grandma Johnson's Scones

Reviewed: Sep. 14, 2012
Fantastic recipe!! Hate repeating hints, but with so many did not research to find this one. When I make these wonderful treats, BEFORE BAKING, I set aside 6 or more, wrap individually in plastic wrap, set on a tray and freeze. When company comes or I want to bring a few to a friend, I just take as many as needed, unwrap, either put in my toaster oven or oven and bake for 30 minutes. I do not defrost. They come out wonderful.

The Best Meatballs

Reviewed: May 10, 2012
THESE ARE THE MOST TENDER MEATBALLS EVER. FRIED IN BATCHES (NO OIL), JUST SPRAYED MY PAN WITH COOKING SPRAY. AFTER REMOVING MEATBALLS, ADDED ONIONS, PEPPERS AND GARLIC TO PAN AND SAUTEED TILL TENDER BEFORE ADDING MEATBALLS BACK. YOU CAN ALSO ADD A JAR OF MARINARA SAUCE. COOK ABOUT A 1/2 HOUR LONGER. DELICIOUS!!!

Beth's Chocolate Chip Cookies

Reviewed: Feb. 18, 2012
Cookies came out really good. Crisp on outside and a chewy inside. I did add an extra 1/2 cup chocolate chips in addition to the pecans. Used a large melon baller to scoop out dough. Cookies were uniform in size, hardly spread at all and I was able to get 87 cookies from the recipe.

Ruth's Grandma's Pie Crust

Reviewed: Jan. 8, 2012
Wasn't quite sure how I was going to rate this crust... As a few said, it was sticky rolling out and the first pie I made, the crust tore in several places. With the second pie (the recipe JUST about makes two double pies) one 9 1/2" one 8 1/2" for me, I was more generous flouring the waxed paper I used to rolled the crust and it rolled beautifully. Did not stick this time when I turned it into the pie plate. I melted a little preserves and brushed the bottom of shell before adding filling. When top of crust was added, I brushed the top with a little milk, then sprinkled top with cinnamon & sugar. Keep edges covered with foil because at 425, it was the first to be done. What won me over was the taste. Flaky and tasty. Will be using this one again and again.

Pork Medallions with Dijon Sauce

Reviewed: Dec. 24, 2011
Great base recipe. I had 4 boneless pork chops I wanted to play with and boy did this recipe work. I pounded the pork thin, sliced on a slant- to get smaller pieces (2 to 3 slices per chop depending on size) dredged in flour and browned. Sauteed shallots as someone suggested, added the chicken soup and 1/2 & 1/2. We prefer a darker gravy, so I added about 1/2 tsp. gravy master to darken. Used only 2 tsp. of dijon mustard and wow, it was great. A keeper!!

Spiced Nuts II

Reviewed: Dec. 8, 2011
Maybe it's just me, but I was not impressed with the taste of these nuts at all. No burst of flavor. Just cinnamon and sugar coated nuts. Did not bother with the raisins. Just OK if you're looking for flavored nuts.

Pumpkin Layer Cheesecake

Reviewed: Nov. 14, 2011
Only gave this 4 stars because I didn't feel pie was creamy enough. It turned out very nice, was definitely tasty, (I used a full cup + of pumpkin and increased the spices from 1/8 to 1/4. Cinnamon stayed at 1/2 tsp. Next time I will try adding 1/2 cup of either yogurt or sour cream for a creamier filling.

Skillet Pork Chops with Potatoes and Onion

Reviewed: Aug. 9, 2011
Very tasty. As another reviewer suggested, brown the pork shops first then remove from pan. Saute the sliced onion and about 3 minced garlic cloves for 5 minutes. When softened add the sliced potatoes. I also added 2 sliced carrots to add a little color plus 4 small sliced frying pepper (the long light green ones) for additional flavor. Topped with the pork chops and let simmer till everything was tender. Any remaining flour was added last to thicken the gravy.

Cracked Sugar Cookies I

Reviewed: Oct. 25, 2010
What a delicious cookie. Rolled in a little cinnamon and sugar before baking and they came out great. Outside of that, I didn't change a thing. It was probably my older oven, but I had to keep the cookies in for almost 15 minutes. I like them a little brown around the edges. Thanks for the recipe.

Marie's Easy Slow Cooker Pot Roast

Reviewed: May 7, 2010
Will definitely make again. As with any stew, I also tossed in some fresh green beans and a zucchini that I had on hand. Lightly salted & peppered the veggies before tossing in. Only had a 2.5 lb. chuck roast, but since my family usually eats more of the veggies than the meat, it worked out perfect. Actually tasted better the second day. I did use a slow cooker liner which helped with the cleanup.

Italian Cookies I

Reviewed: Mar. 26, 2010
Best "new" - for me - cookie recipe I've come across in quite a while. Love it. I used 1 tsp. vanilla extract and 1 tsp. anise extract for just a subtle amount of flavor. As suggested, frosted with 1 1/2 c powdered sugar (1 cup was not enough) 3 tbls. milk, 2 tbls. soft butter and 1/2 tsp. anise extract. Divided in small bowls and added blue, yellow. green (left some white) food coloring. Dipped in nonpariels and chocolate sprinkle. Came out great. A keeper.

Flatlander Chili

Reviewed: Mar. 26, 2009
Not only easy, but delicious. OK, now for the "slight" changes. We enjoy a thicker chili, so instead of tomato juice, I substituted 2 14.5 oz. cans of stewed tomatoes. Substituted 1 16 oz. can of tomato sauce and left everything else the same. Seasoning were just right. Again, delicious AND hearty!!!

Scalloped Potatoes and Onions

Reviewed: Mar. 12, 2008
Really good. Tastes even better the next day. I liked the fact it called for chicken soup instead of milk. Will definitely make this again. I did lightly salt & pepper each layer of potatoes and onion. Just added 1/2 the salt called for in the sauce.
