Glazed Ham with Peach-Ginger Sauce

Reviewed: Jul. 15, 2007
I made the Peach-Ginger sauce to go with grilled pork chops. Yum! I had been trying to find something similar to the Grace's Kitchen peach sauce (a line of very good frozen meals) and this is close, using white balsamic vinegar and twice as much ginger (which I love). I also didn't put the pepper in. So my rating is perhaps a bit skewed but I'm so pleased with the result that I'm giving it a 5! I think it would probably be very good as stated too.

Christmas Morning Wife Saver (Breakfast Casserole)

Reviewed: Jan. 11, 2015
I put the layer of bread on the bottom, but tore up the remaining slices into small pieces and mixed them in with the eggs. This worked great. I used ham, sliced green onions and some chopped smoked red peppers. Used 7 eggs, and made 2x the topping, which was not too much. A friend visiting for Christmas took a very small serving at first, then quickly went back for a larger second serving. My husband loved it. I made fried apples and biscuits to go with it, and it was a wonderful Christmas morning breakfast.

Rice with Black Beans

Reviewed: Sep. 30, 2008
This is very easy and very good. I drained the beans, used petite diced tomatoes, used Uncle Ben's ready rice whole grain blend, and sprinkled some chili powder and cumin on it. A big "thumbs up" from my husband.

Zucchini Pasta II

Reviewed: Oct. 27, 2008
I used butter instead of cream cheese, and added a defrosted box of artichoke hearts. Also added a splash of dry sherry. Before adding the chicken broth, I sprinkled the mix with Wondra flour (probably about 3 T.), to help it thicken. I used whole wheat penne pasta. My husband loved it.

Restaurant-Style Coleslaw I

Reviewed: Nov. 1, 2008
This is great. I never have buttermilk on hand, so I just use regular milk and add a little extra lemon juice.

Amazing Italian Lemon Butter Chicken

Reviewed: Nov. 1, 2008
This was really delicious, my husband said it was one of the best things I'd ever made. But it takes a long time to make, so don't make it for the first time when you are pressed for time.

Cheddar Bay Biscuits

Reviewed: Nov. 1, 2008
Yummy. I do put some garlic powder and onion powder in with the dry ingredients. I like to use the very finely shredded Cheddar in these.

Sweet Potato Casserole II

Reviewed: Nov. 1, 2008
This has been a "must have" dish at my holiday dinners for many years. I usually make 1.5x the topping. This recipe says to bake it for 25 minutes, I usually bake it more like 40. I put it in the oven without the topping for about 20 minutes, then take it out, add the topping and bake for about another 20 minutes.

Coffee Shop Corn Muffins

Reviewed: Dec. 28, 2008
My husband and I both liked these very much. I changed the ratio of cornmeal to flour a bit, to trade off more corn flavor for a little more crumbliness, but still pretty uncrumbly. I used a scant T. of white vinegar in regular milk to substitute for buttermilk. I also used about half the sugar called for and that was plenty sweet enough for our tastes. Baked them in a silicone muffin pan brushed with butter, and the amount was perfect for 12 muffins (I brushed more butter on after baking). They rise really nicely, and I liked that about them. I served them with chili and they were a big hit.

Sweet and Sour Pork III

Reviewed: Dec. 30, 2008
I prepared this as written (well, red pepper not green), except that I used chicken instead of pork. We loved it and I will make it again.

Jay's Signature Pizza Crust

Reviewed: Feb. 6, 2009
Excellent pizza crust. I used it to make one extra large pizza, but it was a bit too much for that, next time I think I'll do two medium ones.

Peanut Butter Pie X

Reviewed: Jun. 1, 2008
Really good. I made chocolate ganache for the topping, to make it easier to slice.

Chicken Breasts Pierre

Reviewed: May 28, 2009
I sauteed half of a large yellow onion (sliced) after the chicken and used petite diced tomatoes and red wine instead of water. Very good. ETA: I think next time I make this, I am going to skip the flouring. I think it gives a tiny bit of a slimy texture to the chicken in the finished dish (not a huge issue, but I won't miss it). We absolutely LOVE this and it has become something that I make frequently.

Mexican Shepherd's Pie

Reviewed: Jun. 4, 2009
I used the Restaurant Style Taco Meat Seasoning recipe instead of the package, and added probably 1/4 tsp of crushed red pepper as well. Added a can of chili beans. I put half the meat mixture in the pan, then put a layer of shredded cheese, then added the rest of the meat. I made a recipe for cornbread that called for 1 cup of cornmeal and 1 of flour, I think next time I will do 1.5x of that recipe. This recipe also reheats very well.

Pumpkin Oatmeal

Reviewed: Jun. 17, 2009
Wow, this is a real nutritional powerhouse, using the old-fashioned oats instead of quick. I used 1 c. oats, 1 c. milk, dash of salt, generous 1/2 c. pumpkin, 1/2 tsp. pumpkin pie spice plus a sprinkle of cinnamon, plus Splenda until it tasted sweet enough. I cooked it on top of the stove. Delicious, and I like that it has the cinnamon, which is good to keep blood sugar levels steady.
