Smashed Cauliflower Side Dish

Reviewed: Jun. 16, 2014
I made this for the first time tonight. I found that the potato masher did not do the trick for me. It was too lumpy. So I put everything in the blender and pureed it. Next time I will let the cauliflower drain longer and see if it changes the consistency. My boyfriend thought it was mashed potatoes and was surprised it was cauliflower. :)

Sauteed Garlic Asparagus

Reviewed: Jun. 16, 2014
This is an excellent way to cook asparagus. I added a chopped shallot along with the garlic towards the end. And seasoned with creole seasoning. Everyone loved it.

Fried Broccoli

Reviewed: Jun. 15, 2014
OMG!!! I love this recipe. I used fresh broccoli, butter and olive oil. Plus added minced fresh garlic about a minute before it was done. I also used Creole seasoning. It turned out great. I will make my broccoli like this from now on.

Baked Sweet Potatoes

Reviewed: Dec. 16, 2012
The first time I made this I put too much oregano in the potatos and didn't like the taste. However, my boyfriend requested these again tonight for dinner. The second time around was spectacular. I added two cloves of minced garlic and followed the rest of the recipe. This is now a mainstay in our home.

Two Bowl Cake

Reviewed: May 19, 2012
This is a very forgiving recipe. I used substitutions (grape seed oil & apple cider vinegar) and realized later I forgot the vanilla extract. However, even with my mistake and substitutions the cake turned out moist and chocolately. My boyfriend loved it and he's not a fan of chocolate cake. I want to make it again with lemon as suggested and also with orange. Thanks for the recipe.

Country Pound Cake

Reviewed: Mar. 30, 2012
I made this for a New Years Eve party. I was left with a plate of crumbs. It's a great recipe. I added additional flavorings because I was looking to recreate a childhood favorite. I added almond and coconut flavoring in addition to vanilla and lemon. It gives a very distinct flavor. And it is soooo very yummy.

Simple Syrup

Reviewed: Aug. 20, 2011
After I made pancakes I realized we were out of syrup. I used this recipe, adding some butter and vanilla flavoring. The syrup wasn't thick but we used it on our pancakes and added a dollop of strawberry preserves to the top. Yummy. Just enough sweetness.

Grandmother's Buttermilk Cornbread

Reviewed: Feb. 19, 2010
I wanted to learn how to make cornbread because my family loves cornbread. I'm not the biggest fan of cornbread, but I love THIS cornbread! I tried many recipes and the cornbread never tasted good. Then I found this recipe. It is so easy and it turns out great each time. I have neighbors that request this cornbread from me. If I make it and don't make enough for them they get upset! lol. Now I always make double. I've made friends over this cornbread.
