Sweet and Spicy Sweet Potatoes

Reviewed: Apr. 14, 2013
For years I have been trying to duplicate a sweet potato side dish that came with scollops I ordered in a restaurant. This one sounded so close, I had to try it. The only thing different was the side in the restaurant was mashed, so I baked the taters for 30 minutes, mashed them then added the dry ingredients as listed, replacing the olive oil with butter and no poultry seasoning or chilli powder(I didn't have either). I added the cumin as per the other rated suggestions. I put it back in the oven for about 15 minutes...this plus grilled shrimp, scollops and mushrooms along with roasted brussels sprouts was a VERY tasty way to begin the summer grilling season. Thanks for posting this! I will make it again!

Roasted Brussels Sprouts

Reviewed: Apr. 14, 2013
I love roasted sprouts! I never do them this long, 20 minutes is usually sufficient. Add a bit of garlic powder and parsley flakes, very yummy!

Chef John's Mushroom Gravy

Reviewed: Apr. 5, 2013
I live in a house where gravy is a staple, have never tried to make mushroom gravy. This one is so good and easy, if you consider stirring and stirrring and stirring easy, which I do. My grandmother told me that you cant make good gravy unless you stir, and stir and stir. She told me that you need to keep the pan or skillet just under burning it to make good gravy, I did that with this recipe and KUDOS to Chef John!

Traditional Peanut Butter Pie

Reviewed: Dec. 24, 2009
I am a cook NOT a baker. I was a little worried when I saw the picture-it looks kind of yellow. This pie turned out good! It is layered and the middle layer IS yellow! I do not have a pie plate so I did the store bought, regular size pie crusts. I followed the directions exactly and divided it between the two crusts! It turned out great but the layers are thinner!

Cheating Cheeseburger Macaroni

Reviewed: Oct. 26, 2009
Great starter recipe! I also used mushrooms instead of onions and did not use the chicken soup, instead I substituted a can of beef broth and added my own spices to taste. I did use the sour cream but no water as the beef broth added enough moisture. I also added just a little velvetta. Very tasty!

Shredded Pork Sandwiches

Reviewed: Nov. 14, 2008
This has great flavor. I put my pork in the crock-pot overnight,drain and shred it and add all off the ingredients in the morning. This is a great "barbecue" for parties because you can leave it in the crock-pot all day and spend time with your guests when they arrive! Wonderful!

The gingersnaps were wonderful, the pie was a sticky mess! The flavor was good but it's very messy!

Baked Beans, Texas Ranger

Reviewed: Nov. 14, 2008
These are a little too "southwestern" for me. They are good if you like that style, I prefer the more common homestyle baked beans.

Bacon Cheddar Deviled Eggs

Reviewed: Nov. 14, 2008
These are de-lish! I use real bacon bitsinstead of taking the time to fry bacon. I also add just a little bit of vinegar and sugar to the mixture, just like mom use to make!

Grilled Corn on the Cob

Reviewed: Jul. 23, 2008
This is a great idea but you can get the same result by soaking the corn(in the husk)at least 20 minutes. Remove as much of the silk as you can without opening the husk. you can place it right on the grill and the corn is usually done by the time your meat is...test by squeezing it with your fingers, it will give and feel soft inside...the husks and silk will pull away easily to serve, just add butter and salt as desired. I love this corn without adding any thing to it!
