Gingerbread-Pear Muffins

Reviewed: Oct. 16, 2014
I love these muffins. I have a pear tree and make these every year when I have bunches to use up. I usually add more than 1 pear, probably 2 and pecans also. Recipe takes no time at all to whip up and they always come out nice.

Old Time Kentucky Bacon Milk Gravy for Biscuits

Reviewed: Mar. 5, 2013
This is the same recipe my mom taught me to make, best gravy for biscuits for sure. Great with some "runny" eggs, don't forget fried potatoes and grits if you really want to go over the top. This gravy is for my once a month breakfast splurge or for the days I will be duing hard work and will burn it all off. The gravy will look very runny, I was taught to turn off the burner when it bubbles and by the time you have everything else out on the table the gravy will be thickened- it must cool a bit.

Chef John's Buttermilk Biscuits

Reviewed: Oct. 4, 2012
I have tried many a biscuit recipe trying to find one similar to my late mom-ma's. Well, this one wasn't it, but boy was it wonderful! Easy to make and a bit crisp on the outside and so soft inside. I made it for biscuits and gravy but they were just calling for jam. I only had salted butter and cut back on the salt to 1/2 tsp and they came out fine. A keeper for sure, thanks for posting this recipe Chef John!

Kentucky Pecan Pie

Reviewed: Dec. 21, 2011
I saw this pie had great reviews, except someone who said it was too sweet. A pecan pie is sweet, they are supposed to be very sweet, hence the large amounts of sugar and corn syrup. This recipe was perfect, my sister always won the grand prize ribbon for pies with a pecan pie that tasted just like this. She would take halved pecans and carefully arrange them on top so it looked perfect just in case you want to try it out in a competition. Lastly, this pie is not the sweetest pecan pie I have ever tasted, there are some that make your teeth hurt from the sweetness, this is not one of them- this one's a keeper!

Sopapilla Cheesecake Dessert

Reviewed: Sep. 30, 2011
I took this to a potluck, and it was well received, but I thought it was a bit too sweet. I will cut some of the sugar when I make it again to better taste the tartness of the cream cheese. There was another one of these desserts at the potluck, but I was told by a couple of folks that mine was better as it wasn't too cinnamony as the other one was. Looks like this is a dessert that is gaining in popularity.

My kids tasted something different here, I tried to keep it a mystery, but they insisted on knowing what in the world was in the cake.

Baked Chicken Wings

Reviewed: Sep. 30, 2011
I use this recipe for all cuts of chicken (whatever is on sale on shopping day!). It is absolutely the tastiest recipe for chicken and super easy to throw together. Looking at the ingredients, it doesn't look like much, but the flavors all meld together to create my family's favorite way to cook chicken.

Busy Day Ham Bake

Reviewed: Aug. 2, 2011
I used crumbled crackers instead of the bread crumbs and added more ham. This recipe is an excellent way to use leftover ham. Picky husband went back for seconds. As for using corn instead of broccoli, as someone else did, I don't think that would mesh well, maybe some Italian blend vegetables if you were out of broccoli.

Chicken Pot Pie IX

Reviewed: Feb. 16, 2010
I make this in a clay deep dish pie pan using the pie crusts that come rolled up and it always turns out great, that is if I add a little more milk too make sure it doesn't turn out dry. I also cook it on a lower oven temp and I never have leftovers!

Chocolate Cavity Maker Cake

Reviewed: Feb. 16, 2010
Make this cake when you need a chocolate fix- I made it for my family's Christmas party and everyone loved it. It is pretty simple to throw together so it makes a great potluck dessert- easy to transport too since you don't have to worry about icing.

Easy Quiche

Reviewed: Feb. 16, 2010
This is my all time favorite quiche recipe. My family just devour it and it is simple to make. Sometimes I use spinach and mushrooms instead of broccoli. It's very easy to modify and always comes out great.

Simple Whole Wheat Bread

Reviewed: Feb. 16, 2010
Wonderful tasty bread- when making it I thought it was a bit too much honey because I don't like sweet bread, but it tasted great. It also had just the right amount of salt. I even used all purpose flour instead of the bread flour and it still turned out perfect.

Transparent Pie

Reviewed: Nov. 18, 2009
I lost my recipe for transparent pie and this tastes just like it. Some recipes call for cream, but I like this version, just like my mom and grandma made!

Chorizo and Lentil Stew

Reviewed: Jan. 2, 2009
I left out the turmeric and cut the celery down to one rib. This was delicious and very filling, although my family couldn't be tempted to try it, they're not big lentil eaters. This one is going in my favorite recipes binder!

Crunchy Rice Casserole

Reviewed: Jan. 2, 2009
I usually make a casserole that calls for cream of mushroom and cream of chicken. I had no cream of chicken so I searched and found this, it is very good and can be easily modified making this a great recipe for when your pantry is not well stocked. I added a clove of garlic to the meat and cut up pieces of block cheese since I was out of shredded cheese. I also added the soup-cheese mix to the rice before topping the meat. I was out of corn flakes so I had potato chips or crackers to choose from for the topping and picked the crackers. My picky kids and husband all loved it.

Venison Stew II

Reviewed: Jan. 1, 2008
I added more water and cooked it in the crock pot. It went fast- this stew has excellent flavor, even my picky kids were asking for more. You could add any type of root vegetable you had on hand.
