Calabacitas con Elote (Zucchini with Corn)

Reviewed: Oct. 3, 2012
What a coincidence! I made this last night before I saw this recipe in my email this morning! I had fresh frozen corn to use up and tossed it in near the end with the garlic. Threw in a large bell pepper and some sliced black olives, also some oregano and basil, and crushed red pepper instead of the poblano (wish I'd had one though). Didn't think of adding cheese! Next time!

After-Thanksgiving Turkey Soup

Reviewed: Nov. 30, 2011
This is a nice change from your 'regular' leftover turkey soup. As someone else has mentioned, do not add the 1/2 and 1/2 until after your rice has cooked for a while. You do not want to boil this soup after you add it. I made that mistake (because I was making it in a rush), but I knew right away afterward! I took it off the stove and the next day left it in the crock pot all day on low and the rice cooked and it was perfect. Oh, I also threw in about a 1/4 cup of cooking sherry!

Ridiculously delicious? Yes! It's just a sinful "mac-n-cheese" plus!

Mom's Zucchini Bread

Reviewed: Sep. 11, 2011
Always make a double batch if you've got a ton of zucchini! This recipe so simple and delicious. It's the only one I use.

Amazing Crusted Chicken

Reviewed: Jan. 20, 2011
I did everything as stated in the recipe except I added about a 1/3 cup of grated parmesan, my crackers were cheddar and parmesan, and my French fried onions were cheddar flavor. Oh, and I pounded the chicken breasts instead of slicing it in half because they were small. Both my boyfriend and I kept laughing that "this can't be good for you, it tastes too good!" The chicken was very moist and tender, plus it seemed to stay nice and hot inside the crust. We both loved it. Boyfriend said, "You can definitely make this again." Served it with a brown rice and vegetable medley that I threw together. Awesome!

Fettuccine with Sweet Pepper-Cayenne Sauce

Reviewed: Jan. 7, 2011
I made this last night and we both enjoyed it. Under the advice of other reviewers, I used only a 1/2 cup of broth, let it reduce a bit, and then added the sour cream and cheese. It was delicious with the sweetness of the red bell peppers and the spice of the ground cayenne pepper. Will definitely make this sauce again!

Oatmeal Maple Syrup Muffins

Reviewed: Nov. 8, 2010
Take the advice about soaking the oats in the liquid. Didn't have half-and-half on hand, so I substituted with 1/4 c. of skim milk and 1/4 c. of sour cream. Added 3-4 dried cranberries on top. Didn't have dark so I used light brown sugar. These came together very quickly and made 12 perfect muffins. Really good with a cup of tea! This is a keeper. UPDATE: I've been making different versions of these for a few weeks and now they're even better and HEALTHIER! Replace half the butter with plain applesauce. Use 2 eggs. Use low-fat half-and-half. Add 2 T. of toasted wheat germ. Reduce the salt to 3/4 teaspoon. Replace half the flour with whole wheat flour. Stir the oats into the liquid/egg/sugar mixture and let it sit while you sift together the dry ingredients. Don't over-mix the batter. Bake 6 GIANT mufffins!!

Chicken Barbeque Sauce

Reviewed: Apr. 28, 2009
Funny -- my name is Dorothy and I had a recipe almost exactly like this from my former mother-in-law! Glad I found this to remind how to make it. I always make a lot more: 1 c. oil, 2 c. white vinegar, 1/2 box of poultry seasoning, 2 eggs, garlic and black pepper and usually a good splash of beer. I boil it on the stove and then let it cool. I also sometimes parboil the chicken to save time, then marinate, then charcoal grill.

Best Carrot Cake Ever

Reviewed: Apr. 20, 2007
This was my first carrot cake and I won't look for another recipe. I used DessertMaker2's cream cheese frosting recipe. Many compliments on this cake.

Slow Cooker Kielbasa and Beer

Reviewed: Sep. 14, 2006
I used some of everyone's suggestions! Browned the sausage fast on high in an iron skillet, threw it in the crockpot. Cooked 1/2 an onion and 3 cloves of garlic minced in the hot pan for about 5 minutes and added that. Added about a tablespoon of caraway seeds, a healthy squirt of honey and one of spicy mustard. And don't forget the apple! This was delicious!

Butternut Squash Soup

Reviewed: Sep. 13, 2006
I didn't even know I liked butternut squash! Roasting the squash first is a bit better. I used some extra seasonings that I picked up from another recipe: 1/2 t. curry powder, 1/4 t. each of celery salt and nutmeg, and a little more than a table spoon of brown sugar. I also used only one cream cheese. This is SO good! I'll be growing butternuts again next year for sure!

Barbequed Ribs

Reviewed: May 1, 2006
These are great. I love the oven slow cooked method, but I rub the meat before, not after. Then I let them cool a bit and slather on the barbecue sauce before grilling. I've also done baked and basted in a 500 degree oven for 15 -20 minutes instead of grilling. Either way... yum.

Spicy Grilled Shrimp

Reviewed: Apr. 10, 2006
This is really good shrimp! Definitely doesn't take long to get the flavor through the shrimp, so don't marinate too long. I've done them on the grill and in the broiler and both came out terrific. Difficult to get the ALL from the grill to the table -- make extra!

Light and Fluffy Spinach Quiche

Reviewed: Jan. 11, 2006
Very good base recipe! You could use almost any type of cheese and filling. It really is light and fluffy in those amounts. I used chopped ham and partly steamed broccoli that I had on hand. I'll use this recipe often.

Irish Soda Bread V

Reviewed: Nov. 15, 2005
Mine came out awful! I think it must have been that my WW flour was too old or something. Even the dough didn't act right! I'll try again sometime with fresh whole wheat flour. MIne came out like big flour bricks! Probably my fault though, so I'll leave the rating at 4 stars and just warn folks to use fresh ingredients! (I actually WAS trying to use up that old flour! Oh well!)

Grilled Whole Turkey

Reviewed: Nov. 8, 2005
This is a nice mixture of spices for turkey no matter how you cook it. We usually just season the bird inside and out (no bouillon powder, of course), toss some cut garlic, onion, and celery into the cavity, and charcoal grill directly on the charcoal grill with no roasting pan, and not covered (but do use the indirect heat method). You'll get a bit more of the 'grilled' flavor that way.

Kielbasa and Potato Bake

Reviewed: Oct. 25, 2005
This came out pretty good, but I made a few changes. I only used a soup can full of milk and threw in a good handful of shredded cheddar. Also, I used the Golden Mushroom soup, which has a little more flavor than the regular cream of mushroom. I sliced the potatoes thin and the cooking time was fine. Then let it sit for 15 minutes or so before diving in. Good start to a recipe that can be changed to suit your taste, but 2 cups milk is definitely too much. I think you could throw in a beaten egg to help hold it together also.

Pickled Hot Peppers

Reviewed: Oct. 6, 2005
Whew! I made these with a bunch of jalapenos and 2 cayenne peppers. I did throw in some evoo and fresh herbs as suggested by another reviewer. I also threw in some cherry tomatoes and green onions after I removed the pan from the heat -- I think you could pickle alomost anything in this mixture. I had some of the mixture left that wouldn't fit in the jars, so I added some more peppers for a few minutes, added 1/4 c. sugar and 1 T. salt, tossed it in the blender, and made some kickin' hot sauce. Simple recipe and pretty in the jars, too.
