Blueberry Cream Dessert

Reviewed: Apr. 25, 2009
A quick and easy recipe. I also used 2 packages of cream cheese and 3/4 cup sugar in the batter. I increased baking time to 30 minutes. Chopped pecans on top makes for a nice presentation and adds extra crunch. Oh, and did I mention this won first place in my husband's company's contest? LOL Thanks for a great recipe!

Manhattan Style Clam Chowder

Reviewed: May 4, 2010
I just didn't care for this soup. I halved the recipe and used less tomato as suggested. I also like spices so I added thyme and garlic. I don't think extra clams could have saved this one.

Apple Yam Casserole

Reviewed: Sep. 20, 2010
We loved this recipe! I did boil the potatoes for 25 minutes before adding to the other ingredients. I would NOT increase the brown sugar in this recipe - everyone felt that it was already sweet enough, possibly a little too sweet. That may be because I used Gala apples but I don't think it made that much of a difference. I loved the lemon flavor. Next time I will use more than 3 slices. Thank you for a recipe that everyone in my family loves!

Polish Cabbage Noodles

Reviewed: Jun. 16, 2009
My mother used to make a dish similar to this, but used less onion. She also used leftover bacon grease to give it more flavor instead of the butter(a few tablespoons is more than enough). That also may have come from her Depression Era upbringing. Either way it's a quick, inexpensive side dish.

Diana's Hawaiian Bread Rolls

Reviewed: Mar. 13, 2008
Excellent rolls! I did adjust the lemon extract to 1/2 teaspoon, added 1/2 teaspoon almond extract, and replaced the molasses with more honey. I also added 1/8 cup more flour because the first batch of dough was sticky - this may depend on the humidity in your house. This is definetly a favorite in our house!

Farmhouse Barbecue Muffins

Reviewed: Mar. 4, 2008
I made these for a luncheon but they never made it out of the church kitchen! I thought the sauce might be too sweet,but the biscuit compliments the beef well. Some ladies thought they would add Worcestershire sauce when they made them. All in all a great idea and a great taste!

Kalua Pig in a Slow Cooker

Reviewed: Jul. 16, 2009
My husband said this was nearly as good as the pit Kalua pork he had growing up.(Trust me, that's a big concession!)This was such an easy recipe. I had a hard time finding the Hawaaian sea salt. Trader Joe's no longer carries it here in the Phoenix area, and Whole Foods did not have it, either. I ordered it online but later found it at World Market.I used a pork picnic roast, on sale for 99 cents/pound. Served it with cooked cabbage, macaroni salad, short grain rice and hawaaian rolls. No one needed barbeque sauce for this one. Thanks for a great recipe!

Billy's Favorite Smoky Collard Greens

Reviewed: Aug. 16, 2008
OK, this isn't quite the traditional recipe but I was looking for one without all the added fat.(I don't care what you say, draining them after cooking with salt pork or ham hocks is still leaving a lot of fat - just refrigerate it and see!) I didn't have molasses,added a few drops of Tabasco and cooked them for an hour. They were excellent! I used the fresh prepackaged collard greens - already cleaned and chopped. Thanks for a tasty, healthy recipe!

Chile Garlic BBQ Salmon

Reviewed: Mar. 4, 2009
I made this for my husband - he told my he generally doesn't care for salmon (although he has been eating it) but this was delicious! I have to agree - this is great! I used filets and baked it in the oven because it was easier, in foil at 425 degrees for 20 minutes. This is a keeper!

Jackie's Sausage Soup

Reviewed: Feb. 10, 2009
OK, I wasn't crazy about this soup. I used low sodium chicken broth and ended up adding 2 bouillon cubes and black pepper to add flavor. That didn't do it for me. The orzo absorbed most of the stock - I should have precooked it as suggested, but we do like a thicker soup. It just didn't seem to have any flavor. Maybe hot sausage or red pepper...I do like Italian wedding soup, so this was a disappointment for me. My husband ate a bowl out of obligation and my son at least tried it. Use a big pot if you do try it!

Catfish Cakes

Reviewed: Feb. 10, 2009
Not a bad substitute for crab cakes - I used catfish nuggets and baked them in the oven. I also substituted bread crumbs for the crackers. You can use a lot less oil than 1 cup, especially with a non-stick pan.
