Easy Cajun Jambalaya

Reviewed: Oct. 17, 2012
Made this tonight for supper and it was an instant hit! The kids and my husband agreed that it needs a place in the recipe file. I did make some slight changes. First I added a tad bit more cayenne pepper and a 1/2 tsp of Cajun seasoning. About 5 minutes before it was done I added 12oz of precooked medium shrimp. I did end up adding more broth to help keep it slightly loose. The only thing I will do differently next time is to par-boil the rice and add it part way into the cooking time. While perhaps not the truest jambalaya with the omission of tomatoes we did not mind as I am allergic to them.

Bake Sale Lemon Bars

Reviewed: Aug. 31, 2011
I thought these bars were wonderful for what they were....Super Easy. I put these bars together in about 5 min. These were baked, cooled, cut, and on the tray in a hour. I found that they cut nicely when still warm and just put them on the cooling rack to finish cooling. I did not alter the ingredients at all but I did decrease the oven temp to 325 and baked in a greased, glass 9x13, and increased the cooking time 8-10 minutes. Adjust to your oven..shorter if your oven runs hot..longer if it runs cool. It will look like you do not have enough crust..I stated to get upset but I pressed it out and it did cover the whole pan. DO Not run up the side of the pan. I can see why people said the edges burnt, just pat even into bottom. If your pan is greased well enough the filling will not stick to the sides of the pan but will develop a very thin, very light brown, wonderfully chewy edge. I felt the powered sugar sprinkle was not needed and can be messy. Crust was perfect and filling was great. They cut like a dream. For those who prefer more crust or filling then experiment and double what you want. I might try next time adding some lemon zest for more lemon flavor. BUT for how easy they were and the fact that most people have these simple ingredients on hand they were great. The original recipe was published in my taste of home magazine and the original temp was 350 not 375.

Garlic Prime Rib

Reviewed: Feb. 14, 2010
Awesome is the only way to describe my first experience with Prime Rib. I have to say that I was very nervous to work with a $40.00 chunk of meat but I went for it. Thyme and Garlic are the perfect flavors for this cut of meat. I will definitely be making this again!

Fluffy Pancakes

Reviewed: Jan. 25, 2010
THANK YOU! I have been searching for a long time for a pancake that would live up to my husbands standards. When he craves pancakes it usually means a trip to IHOP, not any more. As I was making them he asked where the Bisquick was, which was the usual way to go specially with four hungry kids waiting for breakfast. I enlisted the help of all the kids in making the pancakes. The recipe was easy to follow and had ingredients I keep on hand. It even included a science lesson in making the sour milk. My whole family loved them and my husband said no more IHOP as long as these are on the menu! Thank you again!
