Baked Lemon Chicken

Reviewed: Feb. 8, 2009
This Chicken was great. I covered my chicken with Kellogg's corn Flake Crumbs instead of the bread crumbs and I added an egg to the mixture I dipped the chicken. The lemon flavor wasn't over-powering, just enough to say, "WOW, like that lemon flavor." I also make a lemon butter sauce to be served with the chicken. This one I highly recommend.

Apple, Brie, and Walnut Salad

Reviewed: Mar. 6, 2009
What a treat. And it is so pretty on the table. I have never used Brie cheese so that was an adventure. I found it very similar to cream cheese. I'm not sure I like the gooey-ness of the Brie on the salad. The rest of the salad was a sure hit with the family. It was light, not over powering and just very enjoyable. I used Blasamic Vinegrette Spritzer dressing. I made the salad a second time later in the week and with the few changes I made, it goes to the head of my recipe bos. I used fresh Mozzarella cheese slices and toasted pecans and macadamian nuts. I especially like the lightness of the dressing. This will show up at our table often and I would have no problem at all serving it to guests. I highly recommend this salad.

Ultimate Chicken Sandwiches

Reviewed: May 7, 2009
These were a hit with our family. The chicken was very good and had no problem with the breading. I pounded the chicken breasts out longer than wide so we could use them on French bread rolls. The coating on the chicken seems quite verstile and I'm am considering using it for other breaded baked foods. The recipe didn't suggest any bread spreads so I offered the old stand-by of different mustards, and mayo and also Olive Aioli, oh, minus the jalapeno. That was by far my favorite. For lunch or a casual dinner, these were great. And the breading?, I'm thinking about using this idea for baked chicken fried steaks sandwich with steak sauce. These were a winner with our family.

Green Bean Potato Bake

Reviewed: Jul. 13, 2011
This is nice. Made me think of when I was a kid and my mom made creamed potatoes with green beans. A great dish and a trip down memory lane all in one great recipe. About half way through the baking time I added a crunchy topping of Grated Parmesan Cheese mixed with Panko bread crumbs to add another texture and 'cause I like toasted bread crumbs baked on casseroles. I will definitely add this one to my "Tried & True" list.

Slow Cooker Chicken Taco Soup

Reviewed: Feb. 11, 2009
This wasn't at all bad. The only thing I did differently is I added more onion and some minced garlic. When I served it up, I sprinkled each serving with a dollop of sour cream, sliced green onions and some sliced olived. Iserved the soup with Nacho Tortila Chips and cheese, salsa and bean dips. We all enjoyed the soup and we will definitely have it again. Good Job!!

Cabbage Fat-Burning Soup

Reviewed: Mar. 8, 2009
I am boiling the bejeezus out of a HUGE pot of Cabbage Fat-Buring Soup. All the reviews, well, maybe not all, there are 235. Let's just say the first 2 or 3. Weeellllll. The reviews I read say it has the ability to be pretty bland. NOT THIS TIME!! I put 5 tsp. minced garlic, a whole stalk thing...bunch of celery, and EVERY herb known to modern man. Well... maybe not guite that many but, everything I could get my hands on. I just tasted it, Oh MY GOOD LORD. I've died and gone to stew Heaven. I can't put the cabbage in it 'cause some of the little ones here don't have a hankerin' to eat cabbage. So, I am boiling the cabbage in another pan with some tomato sauce and onion and will put a bed of cabbage in my bowl then add the soup over that. This is gonna' be so good. I've browned some smoked sausage for those who don't need the fat burning properties. Gotta' go check my masterpiece!!

Betty Baker's Strawberry Salsa

Reviewed: Apr. 4, 2009
Well, this certainly was different for me. I have never made a sweet salsa but I found I liked this one with certain things. This one we served with dipping crackers and chips plus I served it with some BBQ'ed pork chops and chicken and everyone really liked it. When I plated the pork chops, I just made a trail of salsa across the chops and on to the plate and it made a very attractive presentation. I did the same way with the chicken and I also had some salsa in a dish for those who wanted more or some with dippers. Like usual, I made two batches. One exactly as written and the second one I changed slightly to accomadate personal tastes. I added less hot pepper, half the vinegar, and less mint. I can't do hot peppers so I didn't try the hot one but the ones who did said it was great. They would have never thought of mixing hot peppers with strawberries but they said it sure works. As for the toned down version, I though it was very good. It reminded me of summer and back yard BBQ's and picnics. Yes, I will prepare the Strawberry Salsa again. My family has ordered it.

Italian Chicken Bow Tie Pasta

Reviewed: Feb. 10, 2009
I read through the reviews and almost all sggested or added extras. So, I started with the basic here and added sauteed, mushrooms, onions, red and green bell pepper, garlic and basil. And then went on with the directions. Oh, I left out the can of tomatoes and put in a can of taomato sauce. With the additions, it was great. We will difinitely be having this one again. It is basic enough taht a whole list of extras can be added to personalize it to suit most any family.

Southern Style Fried Okra

Reviewed: Aug. 7, 2009
This is an awesome recipe for fried okra. I have also made this without the potatoes and it is just as good. Something about the okra being fried in the cornmeal that really sets it off. I have also used this same recipe with out the corn muffin mix just using corn meal and flour. Wanted fried okra and didn't have the corn muffin mix. Fried okra is just good eating. oH, the Yukon Gold potatoes are fine but I have used what ever potato I have on hand and works great. Just good.

BC Cherry Jam

Reviewed: Jul. 12, 2011
I love cherry season. I used bing cherries and the jam was so good. I cut the cherries in half, removed the seeds then cut the halves again. I wanted the cherry pieces large enough to see. Oh, by the way, do as I didn't and wear gloves to pit the cherries, I do believe my finges will forever be stained with the cherries, but it's cherries, and well worth the red fingers. I have a large canning funnel which I use when putting the food into jars to help keep the rims of the jars clean, which is very important, as Pepper stated. The jam was excellent; the flavor is very definitely cherry and the color is beautiful.

Donnasue's Cornbread Mustard Green Casserole

Reviewed: Aug. 12, 2011
Don't bother me, I'm eatin'. Really, I have a big piece of Donnasue's casserole right here and it's awesome. I am a hopeless lover of cornbread which is what caught my eye. I may have been born in California, but to Southern parents. I'm a Southerner at heart. When I was a kid mama and daddy would pick a bunch of salad fixin's from the garden. Then we'd each chop up our own salad of raw mustard greens, lettuce, green onions, radishes and tomatoes and then we topped it off with hot bacon drippings dressing. I knew, mixing cornbread and mustard greens, this had to be awesome, and it didn't fail to make me smile. Did yourself proud, Donnasue. I'm goin' after more Cornbread Casserole, Don't bother me...

Hearty Beef Vegetable Soup in Sour Dough Bread Bowls

Reviewed: Sep. 17, 2011
Yep, this soup certainly earned its name...Awesome. I made the soup pretty close to how Michele stated, except I wanted a more hearty flavor. I am a pushover for beef stew and beef soups. I increased the amount of onion and used one the size of a softball, up'ed the garlic to 1 TBS minced, and I, being a chicken when it comes to hot food, had to back off the horseradish and hot sauce. When I cooked the ground meat, I used turkey and tried to keep it in small chunks. For the water, I added beef broth; using water just wastes so much flavor potential, up'ed the carrots to about 4 peeled and medium diced, 1 cup rough chopped celery, I didn't do all the corn, and added 2 good sized bay leaves. I served the soup in Sour Dough Bread Bowls from San Francisco. I also had a round loaf of San Francisco Sour Dough Bread because I figured if anyone wanted crusty bread with their soup, they would have to eat their bowl and then what would we do for seconds. I am pulling out recipes for the chilly weather coming up and this one is certainly going to be in the repertoire. The soup is quite good and inexpensive to make which always helps. Next time I make the soup I am going to try adding some extra herbs. Depending on how you are going to serve the soup, sometimes you want a thick soup and sometimes you want a soup with more liquid. Just add more water or broth for a less thick soup. Spmetimes you just want more broth for dunking your crusty bread. Very enjoyable.

Chicken Scampi

Reviewed: Nov. 27, 2011
All really enjoyed the Chicken Scampi, but to be honest we made it into leftover Turkey Scampi. I put in enough turkey pieces for 4 servings and then prepared it as stated. I didn't have to cook it as long because the Turkey was already cooked. Since I didn't have to brown the chicken breasts, I also omitted the butter and fat free Cream of Chicken. I was wanting some color because it is all just a beige, so I added some chopped parsley and a small amount of green and red pepper. Just needed color. It is yummy and you'll se it on out table quite often.

Raspberry Fudge Brownies

Reviewed: Feb. 9, 2009
For the top I did a drizzle of melted Raspberry chocolate, like Petit Fours, across the tops of the brownies. They are were so pretty. I did as was suggested and rinsed my knife between cuts, and they came out with no jagged edges. The Raspberry topping is almost framed by the dark chocolate. But, I didn't cut them in triangles. I cut them in 1/4 inch slices, 4-inches wide and then layed them on a dessert plate that I had drizzled with the melted Raspberry Chocolate. The dessert plates I used were white with pink ribbons and light and dark pink tiny roses around the outside. The presentation was stunning. Thank you, for such a beautiful dessert. This is going in my recipe file under, Impressors. Thats where I put my, "Blow your socks off" recipes.

Real Welsh Rarebit

Reviewed: Apr. 19, 2009
Well, it reminded me of old times. The first time I tried this was in high school cooking class in , well never mind but it was a long time ago. Still tastes the same. Think some of our younger reviewers, not being famililar with Welsh Rarebit, don't realize it is not just a cheese sauce. it is an entree. I liked it, it reminded me of home, not so much my home, but of high school. Family liked it and we are ging to have it again. I've never had it with beer, I just used milk and some cream.

Pineapple Pie V

Reviewed: Oct. 24, 2009
This pie is very good. Not wanting to waste pineapple and not having a small can of crushed pineapple, I used a 15oz can of crushed pineapple. It had a great flavor and we didn't notice a big lemon flavor. Maybe that was because of the extra pineapple. I love pineapple and pineapple pie and to me this is a keeper recipe. it goes together quickly so when time is short, this is a good one to pick.

California Crescent Sandwiches

Reviewed: Oct. 29, 2011
I couldn't fins the Pillsbury Crescent Recipe Creations so we used the crescents securing the edges. These are awesome. Everyone loves a crescent and they make the sandwich so tneder and add greately to the flavor. Tp us s sandwich isn't just stuff held together by bread, but an adventure. You have to consider the bread, the filling, cheese, condiments and naything else is so very important and using the crescent is a wonderful beginning. I will certainly make these again and plan to really do some serious experimenting to use the cresecent "bread" with different fillings.

Lemon Lush

Reviewed: Dec. 18, 2009
I have this same recipe and the lemon cheese cake is a definite show stopper. Except one thing, for the bottom crust I use 1 1/2 cups chopped pecans or walnuts and 1 cup flour and 1 stick of butter. The rest is all the same and it is fantastic. I call a recipe like this, an Impressor. Guaranteed to impress.
