Whipped Cream Frosting

Reviewed: Dec. 17, 2013
I would give this 10 stars if I could. Easy to make and is simply amazing. Nothing to add, no further step were taken. Love this and will be used any time frosting is needed. The ONLY problem I had was that, after frosting two French Silk Pies, there was a lot left over.

Cheater Pot Pie

Reviewed: Feb. 10, 2012
This is similar to the way I've been making it for years. I add crushed rosemary, dried sage and basil. I also use a mashed potato crust on the bottom. I simply mash cooked potatoes without milk or butter, press them evenly into a glass 9" pie pan and bake 20 minutes at 400. There are many variations that can be used, I usually change it up a bit. It's a great winter dish that we have once per month when it gets cold out.

Buffalo Chicken Dip

Reviewed: Jan. 29, 2012
Tasted good, but you can't get authentic "Buffalo" flavor if you use ranch dressing. Authentic buffalo is Blue Cheese and nothing substitutes. Not sure who or where they started using ranch with Buffalo wings but it doesn't work. I also use rotisserie chicken instead of canned, the flavor is much better and can be bought at most grocery stored these days. Gave it 3 stars, would have been 5 if it were called "Spicey Ranch Chicken Dip". So long as it uses ranch dressing, it won't taste "Just Like Buffalo Chicken Wings"

Dirty Martini

Reviewed: Sep. 21, 2011
A sure winner. This is the way I've been making them, except I use blue cheese stuffed olives. DON'T use the brine from them, use regular olive brine! I would also go the extra step of stuffing your own olives, store bought blue cheese olives are horrible. Olive stuffers can be purchased at any tavern supply store and some high end liquor stores, definitely worth the purchase.

Chicago-Style Hot Dog

Reviewed: Sep. 20, 2011
As a lifelong resident of the Chicago area, I can honestly say that THIS is the ONLY version of a true Chicago Style Hot Dog. There are NO variations. Grilling the dogs, baking the buns, pepperoncini instead of sport peppers are all variations; nothing can be substituted and still be considered Chicago Style. VIENNA Dogs are boiled (Or steamed), buns always steamed, poppyseed buns are the only way. When I make these at home, I put the onions on the bun before the hot dog, that keeps them from falling off when I eat them. Great recipe, try them for dinner!!

Bourbon Whiskey BBQ Sauce

Reviewed: Apr. 27, 2011
Great sauce. I used Crown Royal Black instead of Bourbon and only used 1 TBS of liquid smoke. Turned out fantastic. While I do like a smooth sauce I really didn't want to discard the onions and garlic. I threw it all in a blender for a few minutes instead. This will be used a LOT this coming summer!!!!

Turkey Brine

Reviewed: Jan. 27, 2009
This is a great brine. I added crushed rosemary, sage, thyme and garlic before heating. Very important to let the bring get COLD before placing the turkey in the brine. I used a fresh, free range turkey and it couln't have turned out better. Free range turkey is a little more expensive but well wort it. This was the second time I brined a turkey and will never go back to traditional turkey again.
