Bacon Gravy for Biscuits

Reviewed: Aug. 7, 2008
Good starter recipe. It's important to have enough bacon to yield the amount of grease needed. 4 slices is a bit on the low side. I usually buy an entire pack of thick bacon and make it all. After it's all cooked and crisp, I mix flour into the grease little by little until it becomes pasty but not clumpy. Last, add the milk little by little stirring between each addition until the gravy reaches it's desired consistency. You have to wait inbetween each addition because the consistency of the milk will change when it is heated. Remember to crumble the bacon into the gravy BEFORE seasoning with salt and pepper. If you have not made bacon gravy before, the best thing to do is to take a few teaspoons of it out, put it in a cup, and season those few teaspoons until you like the taste... then season the whole pot until you match that desired taste. This way, you won't ruin an entire pot of gravy by overseasoning it. The most important thing to realize about making gravy is that it's more intuitive than it is following a specific recipe.

Catfish Tuscany

Reviewed: Sep. 25, 2008
Great recipe! The best part was the crispy edges from the browning of the cheese. Yummy! The first time I made it, I did it exactly as the recipe said. The second time, I didn't have catfish so I used tilapia instead. It was just as good!

Pumpkin Soup

Reviewed: Dec. 2, 2008
I followed other people's suggestion and added a handful of brown sugar. I also only added half the salt and then added more after it was done to taste.

Old-Fashioned Scalloped Corn

Reviewed: Dec. 2, 2008
Good but texture is a bit runny for me. I will drain some of the juices from the corn next time. The topping is great!

Quick and Easy Alfredo Sauce

Reviewed: Dec. 30, 2008
I found it a bit bland. I added some salt to bring out the flavors and it turned out quite good. One thing I've learned in cooking is if it tastes like something's missing... it's probablly salt!

Creamy Cinnamon Rice Pudding

Reviewed: Apr. 16, 2009
Good flavor but was a little runny. After it sat in the fridge for about a day and a half, it got thicker.

Linguine Alfredo

Pretty darn good. Felt like it was missing something though... maybe chicken or some veggies would really complete it.

Slow Cooker Italian Beef for Sandwiches

Reviewed: Jun. 17, 2009
Served on Hoagie rolls with swiss cheese. I threw the rolls and cheese in the broiler for a minute or two. I also added half an onion about an hour before removing the beef from the slow cooker. My boyfriend said it was the best sandwhich he'd ever had. It heats up great for leftovers as well. Thanks for a keeper recipe!

Cheese Dipping Sauce

Reviewed: Jun. 23, 2009
There is a fundamental flaw in this recipe. When you mix an oil (butter) and flour and milk, you are creating a roux. In order to make sure your recipe doesn't turn out grainy, you need to make the roux correctly. Usually this means for every TBSP or oil, you need a TBSP of butter and a cup of milk. The ratio in this recipe is off. It should be one TBSP butter, one TBSP flour, and one cup milk. You'll have a much smoother outcome. The other important thing is to prepare the roux correctly because it is the base of the dish. making the perfect roux is more intuitive than anything else.

Pepperoncini Beef

Reviewed: Aug. 12, 2009
Amazing! Since the pepperoncini jucie doesn't fully cover the beef, I flip the beef over halfway through the cooking. I used french bread and provalone cheese and put it and the bread in the broiler. I used the horseraddish/sour cream spread idea from another reviewer. YUM!!!

Chicken Stir-Fry

Reviewed: Sep. 27, 2009
Came out incredibly salty. It had a good flavor but the combination of soy sauce and bullion was just too salty for my taste. Maybe a reduced sodium soy sauce next time...

Yummy! I added a tsp of "Sweet Treat" to the batter which is just a mixture of vanilla, sugar, and cinnamon. They came out great! Thanks!

Cream of Pumpkin Soup

Reviewed: Dec. 5, 2009
The recipe in its oiriginal form is not the best, but after reading others' reviews, I decided to add lots of extra brown sugar. After the addition of the sugar, it was great!

Slow Cooker Chicken Taco Soup

Reviewed: Jan. 2, 2010
Okay but had a weird taste to it. Possibly the beer? I would try it again without the beer.
