Chicken Breasts with Chipotle Green Onion Gravy

Reviewed: May 8, 2012
I could not find chipotle chile powder so I used cajun seasoning. Put a bit on the chicken too. Gravy was so good. Watch the video if you are not a gravy expert and you will master it!! I also shredded the leftover chicken and mixed it with the gravy for lunch the next day. Gravy is awesome

OREO® and Fudge Ice Cream Cake

Reviewed: Sep. 8, 2011
After reading the reviews I almost thined it out with a little milk. So glad I didnt. It was not hard to spread and tasted great. I did put all of it together except the cool whip. I wraped it tight in foil and put in the frezzer for a couple of hours then took it out, covered it in cool whip, drizzeled with hot fudge and crushed oreos and put it back in the frezzer. Looked great, tasted even better!

Stuffed Shells

Reviewed: Sep. 8, 2011
This was a quick and easy recipe. I didnt change a thing and thought it was great. Cottage cheese is a great change from the usual ricotta in most recipes and red pepper added great flavor.

Jambalaya

Reviewed: Sep. 6, 2011
Original recipe make a ton of food. I like to scale it down to 16 servings and use one pound smoked sausage, one pound diced ham steak, and 4 slices of bacon. I have make it many times without the browning sauce and this last time with it (I didn’t notice a difference), I will continue to use it until the bottle is gone but don’t think I would buy it again since I have only used it in this recipe. Used Tabasco Sauce for the hot pepper sauce IMO I gives it the best flavor. Cannot wait to have the leftovers for lunch. Thank you Evelyn!!!

Banana-Chocolate Chip Cake

Reviewed: Mar. 31, 2011
Very good and so easy. I used 1 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips in the cake instead of chocolate squares chopped. I skipped the chocolate frosting because I ran out of time and didnt miss it. There is enough chocolate in the cake and the cake was very moist. Oh and I used about 4 med banana's to get the 1 1/3 C mashed bananas.

Streusel Coffee Cake

Reviewed: Jan. 14, 2011
Very good and moist. I ran out of time so I skipped the icing and didnt miss it. Maybe next time I will put a small amount on for looks but the streusel so tasty you dont need anything else. For the streusel I put it all in a food processor (with a bit of vanilla) and pulsed a few time. Nuts were a perfect size and it all combined great. 45 mins in a bundt pan was perfect, makes more then enough streusel so you dont need to double.

Slow Cooker BBQ Flat Iron Steak Sandwiches

Reviewed: Nov. 5, 2010
Could not find flat iron steak so I used a different kind of beef. Came out nice and tender, falling apart. I also seasoned the meat with flour, salt, and pepper and used thin sliced onion. This is not a recipe that I would say is awesome BUT it was so quick to put together (10 mins start to finish), one bowl and the crockpot to clean, and when I came home from work dinner was done. Could not get any easier. The coleslaw added a nice crunch. Used Sweet Restaurant Slaw from AR which is also very easy and served it with rolls and white rice. Will make again

Coffee Butter Frosting

Reviewed: Nov. 3, 2010
This was an excellent frosting. I made it as written but then had to add a bit more coffee because it was so thick (probably would not have needed more coffee if I had sifted the powdered sugar). Made enough to frost 24 cupcakes, used the Black Magic Cake recipe and the two were great together. Will be making again. Thank you

Sweet 'n' Sour Meatballs

Reviewed: Sep. 7, 2010
We have been making this for years, well half of it. I have never been good at making meatballs so we by the frozen ones and make the sauce. We serve this as an appatizer. I dont know that I would like it for a meal but to snack on durring a football game it is great. The sauce is so easy to make but you have to crush the gingersnaps til they are like power, put them in a blender or food processor. They will desolve in seconds. Keep in a crock pot and serve with toothpicks.

Sangria! Sangria!

Reviewed: Sep. 3, 2010
Awesome.... I was making this for a large group and had a hard time figguring out how much alcohol to buy. Here is what I bought to make enough to make 5 times the recipe (30 servings). 4L jug of Carlo Rossi Sangria wine, 750 ml bottel of Blackberry Brandy, 750 ml bottel of triple sec, and a couple of 2 liter bottles ginger ale. I used all the wine and most of the brandy and triple sec. I added the ginger ale before serving and only used about a 1/2 a bottle (wanted to add more so that it would serve more people but the taste testers said it was great and not to add any more). I did not use sugar and made it the night before. I should have made the serving for 60 or even more because it went fast. Will absolutly make again, and I dont even like wine!!

Taco Pie

Reviewed: May 5, 2010
I had to serve the sour cream on the side because of a picky eater and also had guacamole on the side as well. I added a layer of refried beans and some salsa to it the dish. I baked it in a 9x9 dish next time I will try a 9x13 and use 1 ½ lb of beef since I will be using the larger dish. There was a lot of dough left and I think it will fit a 9x13 well. Very good, quick dinner. Will be making again.

Spinach Quiche with Kid Appeal

Reviewed: Apr. 19, 2010
Made the following changes based on reviews. ½ tsp thyme (was just enough), 6 eggs (a bit dry next time will use all 8), threw the garlic in with the onion to cook for the last min, used 1 ½ C cheese. It was awesome and so easy. I loved the flavor and can not wait to make it again.

Homemade Vanilla Extract

Reviewed: Apr. 15, 2010
I used about 8 pods split lengthwise in a bottle of Smirnoff exactly like the one in the picture (I think it is 750 ml). After 3 weeks it is so dark you have to hold it up to the light to see the pods inside. It smells wonderful, just slightest smell of Vodka left but I don’t think it will be there much longer. I have to try very hard to wait until it is ready before I try it. I will be putting it though a coffee filter to get all the seeds and stuff out. I read that if you dry out the pods when you are done and add them to a plastic bag with sugar it will flavor the sugar, good for baking and decorating cookies and cakes. I will be trying that when my vanilla is done.

Patriotic Pasta

Reviewed: Mar. 30, 2010
This is one of my favorites. If I am short on time I will skip sautéing the garlic and basil. Just use a little oil on the pasta so it doesn’t stick and add a bit of basil. I will also skip the cauliflower if I don’t have it and it is still great!!! Make the extra dressing, it is so good you will want to add a little more. It was in the TOH magazine as part of a 4th of July menu which would explain the name. I wish they would rename it because it is a great recipe that might get more attention under a different name. Try it!!
