Louisiana Sweet Potato Pancakes

Reviewed: Nov. 12, 2010
Use one up mashed sweet potatoes (canned or fresh would work fine). I used only a dash of nutmeg and added some cinnamon. Vanilla would also be a good addition. Very tasty and fluffy pancakes. Delicious fall treat!

Sirloin with Mushroom Sauce

Reviewed: Nov. 9, 2010
I did not cook the meat as directed in this recipe, so this review is solely for the sauce. I made this sauce to accompany my "Herb rubbed sirloin tip roast" recipe from this site and the sauce was beautiful. However, next time i might add some Thyme to simmer during the reduction and be more generous with the mushrooms. They absorb so much delicious flavor. Also, i sauteed in butter for added flavor and used a strong beef broth to increase flavor because I wanted to add about 1/4 c half and half to make the sauce creamy without diluting the flavor. whisked in some flour at the end to thicken slights. Big success!

Herb Rubbed Sirloin Tip Roast

Reviewed: Nov. 9, 2010
This herb/spice rub was very good. just the right amount of flavor. However, with a thick roast you don't get enough flavor in each bite. I think I would prefer this rub on thinner sirloin steak. For this reason I made the sauce from the recipes on this site called "sirloin with mushroom sauce". Just a sauteed mushrooms in red wine and beef broth reduction - and added a splash of half and half. I was glad to have this sauce accompany our roast but a steak wouldn't need it. Also I cut back on the cayenne for the kid's sade and cut the salt in half (which was plenty!) because I was using table salt rather than kosher salt. Don't be afraid to be more generous with the two herbs either! I think i close to doubled what was called for.

Roasted Brussels Sprouts

Reviewed: Nov. 9, 2010
delicious! I'd never had brussel sprouts before. They seem to have a bad rep for being bitter. But these were anything but bitter. They were pleasantly mild and even sweet/creamy in flavor. I made the following changes: quarter/remove the choke, add a sprinkle of garlic powder, par-cooked in the microwave until slightly tender. Then I roasted just to get the color and the carmelization flavor. My husband and I really enjoyed them and will make then again!

Country Green Beans

Reviewed: Nov. 5, 2010
this is the best method for preparing fresh green beans that I found. And you can vary the additions/seasoning as desired. I'll use this one every time now! Thanks!

Fluffy Whole Wheat Biscuits

Reviewed: Nov. 3, 2010
i followed the recipe exactly - with the only exception being that I made drop biscuits to save time. I used tub margarine and skim milk. And they were AWESOME! My son was shoving them in him mouth as fast as he could. I'll probably never use another recipe again. Thanks for posting!! UPDATE: I tried this recipe for Cheddar-Thyme biscuits and they were so yummy. Stir in an additional 1/4 tsp salt, 1 tsp dried thyme, 1/4 tsp fresh ground black pepper, 1 cup shredded cheddar, 1/4 tsp onion powder, 1/4 tsp garlic powder.

Bar-B-Que Sauce

Reviewed: Oct. 19, 2010
very good sauce. Made this to marinade, baste and dip our ribs in. Got lots of compliments on it. I used prepared mustard instead of powder. Then I added some cayenne for a kick, honey to make it sweeter and some smoked paprika to round it out. Tasty and a snap to make.

Restaurant-Style Zuppa Toscana

Reviewed: Sep. 21, 2010
awesome! I use turkey or chicken italian sausage. cook the bacon first, remove then cook the onion in the bacon drippings, adding the garlic the last couple of minutes. I also used half and half rather than cream. Yum!!

Restaurant-Style Buffalo Chicken Wings

Reviewed: Sep. 12, 2010
Very yummy! Great for a football game! I used chicken tenders (breasts pounded out and cut into strips). I added a little onion and garlic powder and seasoning salt to the flour mixutre too. And i shallow fried (browned them) in a skillet rather than deep frying to save on some calories/oil. We made them into buffalo chicken sandwiches. On a hamburger bun with mayo, blue cheese, onion and lettuce. They were a huge hit. We'll do these again for sure - and next time with a little more hot sauce for more kick.

Oat Applesauce Muffins

Reviewed: Aug. 24, 2010
This recipe needs some seasoning - I added 3/4 tsp salt, 1 tsp cinnamon, and 1 tsp vanilla. I also made some changes based on what i had on hand. I used 1c. whole milk with 1 T white vinegar in place of the buttermilk and all purpose flour in place of the whole wheat flour if you don't have it. I rarely have those ingredients on hand but it worked wonderfully with my substitutions. The all purpose flour lacks the nutrition of the whole wheat but it also makes them light and fluffy. Because my applesauce had no sugar added I added a little extra brown sugar (1 heaping 1/2 c scoop). The were yummy served warm with butter and some honey. Delightful! *Also they only need 20-25 minutes in the oven. Not 30!

Skewered Grilled Potatoes

Reviewed: Aug. 10, 2010
precooked the potatoes about 10 minutes in the microwave in a casserole dish - completely covered in water. Then tossed with EVOO and seasonings (salt, garlic powder, black pepper, rosemary and thyme is what i used but a host of different flavor combinations would be great). I used the evoo instead of may for health factors and after reading other review that it made it gloppy. Grilled as driected. we loved them!

Joey's Peanut Butter Cookies

Reviewed: Jul. 31, 2010
Its impossible to eat only one of these delectable cookies! Absolutely awesome recipe! The ONLY change i made was rolling my dough balls in white sugar before pressing down with a fork on the cookie sheet. They are a moist chewy and a perfect balance between salty sweet peanuty goodness.

White Cheese Chicken Lasagna

Reviewed: Jul. 13, 2010
awesome recipe! I halved this recipe and made it in a 9x9. I used 5 cloves of garlic and a little over a cup of ricotta. I also sauteed my raw chicken in a little evoo and the onion. The sauce was spectacular. There really isn't much you could/should change in this recipe to make it better. Definitely on the 'keeper' list.

Caesar Salad Supreme

Reviewed: Jul. 9, 2010
Really yummy! SO much better than bottled dressing. We may never go back. It was so fresh and tasty...I'm looking forward to my leftovers for lunch today! The only changes I made was using light mayo and anchovy paste. And to save time i just used store bought croutons, though i'd like to try that part of this recipe too! I served it with grilled steak on top. Yum!

Grilled Lemon Herb Pork Chops

Reviewed: Jul. 9, 2010
one of the best pork chop marinades I've come across to date! We were both surprised at how tasty these were for such a simple marinade. I followed the recipe for the marinade exactly but only gave it about 30 mintues to marinade which was plenty of time. They were so flavorful it made us think that 2 hours or over night would be WAY too long/too strong. You could do 2 hours if you have really thick chops..but we think 30 min to an hour for chops 1/2 to 3/4 inch chops is great.

Mom's Coleslaw

Reviewed: Dec. 13, 2011
simple. That's how coleslaw should be. The ONLY change I make is adding a little sprinkle of celery salt. this recipe is a keeper. My fav way of eating it is on top of a BBQ beef or pulled pork sandwich!

Baked Pork Spring Rolls

Reviewed: Jan. 19, 2010
great recipe. We LOVED that these are much more "guilt free" because they are baked! we just don't do fried food in our house. I made them vegetarian, but I'm sure they would be good with ground pork or even ground turkey too. I doubled (and next time would even triple) the cabbage mixture since I was not including the meat. I also used the egg roll wrappers...next time I'll be sure to find SPRING roll wrappers to help with the crisping in the oven. We'll definitely make these treats again!
