Turkey and Quinoa Meatloaf

Reviewed: Feb. 16, 2012
Excellent! Although I am an avid ground turkey lovver, we opted for our own ground elk meat we processed last week. I added about 1/2 cup of cooked quinoa, and did not change anything else. This recipe will be a staple, as we have 44 lbs of ground elk to enjoy!

All-Day Apple Butter

Reviewed: Oct. 22, 2009
FABULOUS!! What an easy, no fuss recipe that is going to be in each holiday gift basket that I do this year!! Following the advice of other reviews, I made a few slight changes, adding only 2 cups of Splenda instead of sugar, and after cooking in the crockpot all night, I removed lid for a few hours and used an immersion blender right before loading my jars for the canner. Perfect texture, great recipe!! I'm already on batch #2!

Dill Pickles

Reviewed: Aug. 12, 2009
Fantastic recipe for those who may be a bit nervous about canning. I soaked in bucket w/ a ice container in the middle, topped with water and sat in fridge for about 4 hours. I just made 20 qts of whole & spears, and 14 qts of sliced. I stuffed the garlic, dill, peppers of choice, and mustard seed, added cukes, topped with the dill again & a grape leaf. Poured boiling vinegar/water/salt solution into jars, sealed with the lid & ring that had been preparing in hot (not boiling) water, and inverted onto a towel on the table. We did the process outside on the campstove burner, therefore left the jars outside all night upside down. In the morning, all jars had sealed and I couldn't stand it either, I only waited 2 days before sampling! OMG! My excuse was that I didn't want to store all those jars if they were going to be yucky-lol! They are wonderful, crisp, dilly, and so I hid the open jar in the back of the fridge to continue melding the flavors. Plus to hide from hubby, haha! Great recipe, I will share with many others.

Seasoned Turkey Burgers

Reviewed: Mar. 28, 2008
Absolutely FUN in our mouth! My husband was so surprised that he actually enjoyed it, he felt for sure he would not like it because it wasn't ground beef-ha! This was so good-I dipped the patties in panko crumbs and then spritzed them with EVOO, and cooked them on my George Forman grill-stuffed them in a warm pita filled w/ lettuce, red onion, feta, and dijon, really moist! served with a pot of fresh asparagus soup, what an excellent idea-thanks!

Sour Cream Chicken Enchiladas

Reviewed: Mar. 13, 2007
This was a great base for us, I wanted to share our variations-as I didn't have all the ingrediants it called for on hand. I substituted just a few things, and my husband had three helpings! I used 1 16oz can of red Enchilada sauce for the jalapeno salsa, and 1 16oz can of green chili's, not green salsa. We prefer corn tortilla's and I used jalapeno jack cheese alongside the cheddar, to round out the 2 cups. To the sour cream mixture I added 3 quick cooked fresh jalepeno's and pureed them in my food processor. I used the leftover Beer Can Chicken we had from the night before, and I ended up with 20 total, 2 lg. pans. Definitely fun in your mouth!!

Corn Tortilla Quiche

Reviewed: Mar. 12, 2007
This was certainly Fun in our mouths!! Wow-what a great idea for utilizing one of our staples, corn tortilla's-we call them our "cornies". I made some slight variations, I used 1 full pound of sausage, 7 "cornies" instead of 5, sub'd Jalepeno Jack cheese for Monterey, eliminated the whipping cream and cottage cheese and used 1/2 cup sour cream and 1/4 2% milk. I didn't have any green chili's on hand, so I cut up 2 fresh jalepeno peppers and cooked them with the sausage, also added onions to that mixture. (Yum!) I decided to bake it directly in our 12" Cast Iron Skillet, and topped it with tomato slices and sliced green onions. More for the visual than anything. We loved the way it looked, I immediately snapped a picture of it! A dollop of sour cream with a splash of your favorite hot sauce, definitely to become a family favorite. Thanks for the great idea!

The Perfect Hot Artichoke and Spinach Dip

Reviewed: Jan. 29, 2007
I decided to leave off the spinach, (not a family favorite), and mozz cheese. It's important to drain the artichoke hearts very well, otherwise It can result in a very oily dip. I fried the jalepenos, (we used 3-4), sprinkled cajun pepper on them and then put into processor. I also saved time and ran the hearts through the food processor as well. We fry our own tortilla chips w/ corn tortillas, which hands down will beat any store bought anyday. Besides, my husband and I enjoy sharing the kitchen time together. Always a hit in the small crock when I take it places, or at home.

Fish Tacos

Reviewed: Jan. 23, 2007
Excellent sauce! We chose to use sturgeon instead of cod, and we also deep fried additional jalepenos to slice up for some extra heat. Definitely don't forget the lime squeeze!

Fresh Pineapple Upside Down Cake

Reviewed: Jan. 23, 2007
This cake is very moist and has an excellent presentation. I just happened to have fresh pineapple in the house, but no actual juice, so I substituted orange juice, it was wonderful.

Quick Coffee Cake

Reviewed: Jan. 23, 2007
This recipe is very similar to the one my father would make for us on Sunday nights while watching The World of Disney on t.v.! I did have to increase the milk to 3/4 cup and I also increased the brown sugar to 3/4 cup. I left out the flour for the topping, instead mixed the cinnamon, melted butter and brown sugar together. After pouring batter into a 9 inch pie pan, I stirred the topping mixture into the batter with a fork, creating a swirl effect. The family thought it rocked with vanilla bean ice cream.
