Bacon and Bourbon Thanksgiving Stuffing

Reviewed: Nov. 22, 2007
This is our new family favorite for Thanksgiving. We did decrease the chicken stock down to about 2 cups of liquid from the original amount it called for. Also the recipe is missing the part where you add the bacon back into the mix. But we just tossed it in there when we were doing the mixing of all of the ingredients. The flavors are excellent and we even used a little extra burbon in our gravy.

Mama's Balsamic Vinaigrette

Reviewed: Jan. 23, 2004
Easy to make and excellent flavor. I think this will become a staple in our house. Even the kids liked it.

Smoked Salmon Deviled Eggs

Reviewed: Jan. 19, 2009
I hate to be the first to review a recipe and give it a poor rating but this was not a hit with my family. It came out very dry and the flavor of the salmon was overpowering. I attempted to add more mayo but nothing seemed to help. Four family members tasted it and none liked it at all.

A Hearty Green Bean and Sausage Casserole

Reviewed: Dec. 8, 2006
My family enjoyed the recipe. I think I might try french cut beans next time instead of the regular cut beans.

Potato Sausage Stuffing

Reviewed: Dec. 8, 2006
I think this was a wonderful addition to Thanksgiving. I made my own bread cubes with wheat and white bread. I also used Jimmy Dean's Sage Sausage. It really was a hit!

I made these with my son for Teacher Appreciation day. They were a big hit with everyone who tasted them. We made a double batch to have for everyone.

Herbed Pork Chops

Reviewed: Dec. 18, 2001
Very tasty. I actually ended up cooking mine in the over for 30 to 40 minutes (at 350) after browing the meat on the stove top. I drained the juices and then made the sauce with the corn starch after pulling it out of the oven.

Blueberry White Chip Muffins

Reviewed: Nov. 7, 2001
These are a nice variation of traditional Blueberry muffins. But they are much sweeter than the original recipe. Almost more of a dessert than a breakfast item. The topping (white chips melted) was a messy task. I will omit that step next time.

Crispy Marshmallow Balls

Reviewed: Dec. 16, 2007
I was so tired of cookies that this was a great recipe to stumble upon. I used real butter and mixed rice crispy cereal (1/2 chocolate and 1/2 regular). I also did the assembly line right at the stove and kept the butter, caramel, milk mixture on a low warm while I worked on a double batch. We used metal meat kabob sticks and they were the perfect length for easy dipping and rolling. The kids loved helping with this one.

Restaurant-Quality Maple Oatmeal Scones

Reviewed: Oct. 3, 2008
I do not have a food process or but it mixed up just fine without one. I also substituted the dried cherries with dried cherry flavored cranberries (a lot less expensive). I used raw sugar for the tops instead of plain white sugar. These were a real hit with my family and co-workers. I will definitely make these again.

Sausage Cheese Squares

Reviewed: Apr. 20, 2008
This was a great quick recipe for a church gathering. It turned out nice and flavorful. We did not find it to be too greasy. It was a great recipe in a pinch.

Sour Cream Chicken Enchiladas

Reviewed: Sep. 19, 2007
I did make some modifications to the recipe so it was not as spicy for the kids inclusing adding 1 cup each of sour cream and cheese to the filling and reducing the hot salsa that I added. But the combination of flavors was a hit. One of my boys does not like Mexican food and even he liked it. The kids ate the left overs the next day on Ritz crackers.

Delicious Pumpkin Bread

Reviewed: Aug. 22, 2005
Received great reviews from home and work. I used 1/2 a cup of nuts and 1/2 a cup of raisins. The mix was nice using both. I also dusted the pans with sugar instead of flour.

Cola Sauce Chicken

Reviewed: Dec. 8, 2003
My family liked this recipe. Amazing that no one could pick out the cola taste. I did cut the sody by 1/4 cup and added more chicken broth. All around everyone liked it. Next time I will use a bit or salt.

Amazing Italian Lemon Butter Chicken

Reviewed: May 21, 2008
My family gobbled down this recipe in record time. It was a huge hit with no leftovers. I would say that the instructions need to be modified a bit to include cooking the bacon and crumbling it before doing anything with it later in the recipe. My sauce never seemed to thicken but it worked just fine as it was once I tossed everything together. Also next time I would cut up the chicken, toss with flour and then cook. I think it would be easier to handle this way and would cook a lot faster. I would honestly say I was in the kitchen for at least an hour preparing the meal but it was very worth the time and effort. I think some of it could be done ahead of time to save time in the long run. All and all for a first attempt we loved the recipe and were willing to ignore the calories because it was fabulous! Thanks, Grandma for the inspiration!

Taco Bake I

Reviewed: Apr. 20, 2008
This was great. I served it with corn chips for a fast dinner one night and it was gobbled up. It was even good as a left over for lunch. Nice for those busy evenings when you need to slip something in the over quickly after being out at sporting events all evening.

Orange Curried Chicken

Reviewed: Mar. 2, 2008
I took just about everyone’s tips and hints into consideration when whipping this dish up. I used boneless chicken breasts, less water, 1 small can of crushed pineapple and soy sauce instead of salt. I also reduced the cooking time and added ½ tsp red pepper to kick up the flavor a bit. All and all the whole family liked it.

Smothered Filet Mignon

Reviewed: Jan. 1, 2008
This was very good and a great recipe for New Years Eve dinner. We did make two small changes and used Hot and sweet mustard (we did not have any Dijon handy) and we did use crumbled gorgonzola instead of the blue cheese. It was a hit with both adults and kids. Yummy!
