Pork Chops with Apples, Sweet Potatoes, and Sauerkraut

Reviewed: Sep. 28, 2009
Delicious. I added 1/2 cup of white wine, 2 lg cloves of garlic smashed, omitted the nutmeg which I absolutely DO NOT like, added 1/2 tsp of cinnamon and a sprig of fresh thyme. This dish is true comfort food.

Orange Pork Chops

Reviewed: Sep. 28, 2009
Very flavourful, the orange flavor married beautifully with the pork. I used 3 cloves of minced garlic and browned the chops in a little bacon fat instead of non-stick spray and also coated the baking dish with about a tsp of bacon fat.

Simple But Awesome Lemon Pepper Pork Chops

Reviewed: Jan. 31, 2010
This was delicious. I substituted bacon fat for the vegetable oil and A-1 steak sauce for the Worcestershire sauce (I can't stand the idea of eating anything with anchovies in it and find that Steak Sauce can be substituted drop for drop for Worcestershire Sauce.) The drippings from each packet was drizzled over rice...wonderful.

Cornmeal Bacon Waffles with Cheese Sauce

Reviewed: May 9, 2010
These waffles are the truest sense of the word comfort food. Something special Grandma down on the farm would serve for a Sunday morning breakfast.

Baked Potato

Reviewed: Oct. 2, 2010
I bake potatoes the way my mom taught me. Scrub them WELL because I like to eat the skins, poke them with a fork then bake in a preheated 450 degree oven for 40 to 45 mins, they come out fluffy with crispy skins. I don't have an hour and a half to bake a potato.

Bacon Gravy for Biscuits

Reviewed: Nov. 7, 2010
This is identical to the gravy I make using either bacon or breakfast sausage, crumbled except instead of milk I use half and half. It may have a few more calories but we're talking breakfast here.

Basil Tomato Soup

Reviewed: Nov. 21, 2010
Now this is my idea of a GREAT tomato soup. Full of flavor, rich and comforting and no skimping on the heavy cream and butter.

Apple Cranberry Crisp

Reviewed: Nov. 24, 2010
This was good but no way would I use butter flavored shortening, I used real butter, also added one cup of chopped pecans to the filling. Will definitely make this again.

Ultimate Chocolate Chip Cookies

Reviewed: Dec. 1, 2010
I have made these cookies many times over the years and I have to say that they are truly the best chocolate chip cookies I've eaten. Sometimes for variation I'll add a dash of nutmeg or some oatmeal but it doesn't matter, they always disappear very fast.

Sherry Sour Cream Chicken

Reviewed: Dec. 31, 2010
An easy and delicious recipe to tweak to your own tastes. I added fresh garlic, used 1 tsp of rosemary, sliced onions and mushrooms added fresh tarragon, doubled the sauce and included 2 Tbs of flour to tighten up the sauce. Since dark meat is my favorite I replaced the breasts with boneless chicken thighs 2 to 1. I'll definitely make this a few time a year.

Bacon Cheese Frittata

Reviewed: Jan. 3, 2011
Very quick and simple to make and delicious. I used 8 eggs instead of 6, 10 pieces of thick sliced bacon and substituted bacon fat for butter. This is a very versatile recipe where you can add just about anything you like such as spinach, mushrooms, etc. It's great with chopped green chilies, fresh chopped serranos, chopped cilantro and sliced black olives.

Garlic Green Beans

Reviewed: Jan. 17, 2011
This was a perfect side dish to go with some left over pork loin I had cooked on the rotisserie. I substituted the 3 tbs of olive oil for 1 tb of bacon fat and one extra tb of butter, about 2 lbs of fresh green beans cut to size and dropped in boiling salted water for 2 mins before draining and adding to the skillet. I quickly stirred the beans in with the rest of the ingredients in the skillet, removed from heat topped with Parmesan and served. They were wonderful and there weren't any left overs.

Asian Orange Chicken

Reviewed: Jan. 28, 2011
I have prepared this many times, talk about Asian comfort food! This is a simple recipe to double or triple when family or friends are coming over. I used a little trick taught to me by my Japanese Aunt many yrs ago, substitute half too all of the flour for corn starch. It makes fried foods much crisper and more true Asian texture wise. Also since I do not like the flavor of olive oil I always use canola or a mixture of canola and or bacon fat depending on what I'm frying, sauteing, or browning. I used all canola with the orange chicken and substituted cut up boneless chicken thighs instead of breasts 2 to 1 since dark meat is my favorite.

Normal Chicken

Reviewed: Jan. 30, 2011
After tweaking to our taste this was very good. I substituted A-1 steak sauce for the Worcestershire, I do that for everything calling for Worcestershire because the idea of eating anchovies or anything with anchovies in it absolutely disgusts me and I find the steak sauce to be the perfect substitute. Also I added 1/4 tsp of black pepper, 1 tsp garlic powder and 1/2 tsp onion powder and 1 Tb molasses. Like some others I used thighs 2 for 1 instead of breasts because I just like dark meat better. The whole thing was quick and easy and while the chicken cooked I made rice and broccoli to go with it.

Scottish Shortbread III

Reviewed: Feb. 5, 2011
This was a little to dry and crumbly for me but it is delicious, I just finished my second piece. The next time I think I'll use 4 1/2 cups of flour. I added 1 tsp of vanilla and loved the fact that this recipe made a half sheet pan. I cut it up into 24 bars, I don't like small anything when it comes to desserts, cookies, pastries, etc. This would go great topped with some Meyer lemon curd and good sized dollop of freshly made whipped cream.

Fluffy Pancakes

Reviewed: Mar. 2, 2011
They weren't bad but common sense and experience told me to halve the vinegar and increase the milk by 1/4 cup and I also added 1 tsp vanilla and substituted melted bacon fat for the butter. As far as serving size goes the recipe made made 2 skimpy servings for my partner and me.

Chili Dog Casserole II

Reviewed: Mar. 3, 2011
I make this 2 or 3 times a year and it's comfort food that is so easy to tweak to your own personal taste. I'm fussy about hot dogs and use only Farmer John or Kosher hot dogs. When wrapping the dogs I add some mustard to the tortilla, some chopped onion and some coarsely chopped olives. The chili for both the bottom and top gets some chopped fresh serranos for some added bite. Also when cooking for 2 and you don't want left overs it's easy to halve this recipe and use a smaller baking dish.

French Onion Dip From Scratch

Reviewed: Mar. 19, 2011
This dip is addicting and you need to be careful you aren't left alone with it. It's good on anything including just a spoon. The only things I did differently was to use fresh cracked black pepper instead of white because I prefer it and don't care if the black flecks show. I also substituted bacon fat for the olive oil.

Garlic Pita Bread Bites

Reviewed: Mar. 20, 2011
If it were possible to give something a 6 star rating these would be it. I have been making something almost identical for 3 yrs. It was one those off the top of my head recipes. I open the pita bread and separate the 2 halves so they are extra thin and turn out super crispy. After brushing the butter mixture over them I give them a sprinkle of Kosher salt and then bake. Betcha can't eat just 10!
