Brown Sugar Smokies

Reviewed: Feb. 5, 2014
So delicious! These are now requested at all our large family gatherings and 1 batch is not anywhere near enough. We call these "crack weenies" because, well....try them and you'll see.

Rosenmunnar

Reviewed: Dec. 18, 2013
Delicious and easy. I'm noticing a lot of reviews making suggestions about the amount of jam and size of imprint to avoid having the jam run over while baking. I have found that different brands of jam work better than others. To avoid the run-over problem I use Smucker's blackraspberry jam, it's consistant about staying where you put it and it's delicious!

Root Vegetable Bake

Reviewed: Oct. 25, 2013
Delicious. I bake mine longer and prefer to steam my carrots a bit prior to roasting as I don't want them to be hard. Beets make a nice addition. I always add some onion too.

Divine Hard-Boiled Eggs

Reviewed: Aug. 29, 2013
This method worked well. I took the advice from some reviews and gave my eggs a vigorous shake in the pan after draining and must have been too vigorous. 2 of my eggs broke apart, shell and egg together. So if you try that suggestion, maybe don't go for a vigorous shake, just a shake.

Grilled Pineapple

Reviewed: Jul. 5, 2013
Very similar to a recipe I have been using, the difference being the use of black pepper rather than hot sauce. We prefer the black pepper and no salt. Although I love how it looks sliced in rings, most of the time I slice wedges from top to bottom. Just lends itself to more convenient cooking. If my grill is full, I do these in a skillet on the stove. Delish!

Key West Chicken

Reviewed: Jun. 6, 2013
Great! A side note - marinate= the act of soaking meat in a seasoning mixture AND marinade=the seasoning mixture in which one marinates meat.

Barbeque Bacon Chicken Bake

Reviewed: May 30, 2013
Quick, easy and very tasty. The whole family enjoyed it. I used KC Masterpiece Honey BBQ Sauce. Also seasoned chicken with S & P and Rotisserie Chicken Seasoning before baking. I used Hormel pre-cooked bacon which worked great and saved me a step and some clean-up. Served it with corn on the cob, green beans and fresh sliced peaches. Thanks Rach! Will make again and again!

Tartar Sauce I

Reviewed: Mar. 2, 2013
Very good basic recipe. My hubby LOVES tartar sauce and uses plenty so I have been making it for him for years in an effort to have a healthier option than store-bought. Over time we have tweaked the recipe to suit his preferences. We use light Miracle Whip rather than mayo, add more sweet relish, some garlic, less lemon juice, onion powder, and either paprika or Old Bay seasoning and a light touch of sugar.

New York Cheesecake III

Reviewed: Dec. 30, 2012
Just a tip about the use of a water bath - I noticed some are boiling their water for the water bath which is not recommended. The purpose of the water bath is to slowly and uniformly control the heating of the cheesecake as it bakes so, start with room temp water. Setting your unbaked cheesecake in a bath of boiling water is a sudden shock. Happy baking!

Bacon Wrapped Pork Medallions

Reviewed: Dec. 28, 2012
We thought this was delicious. I followed the recipe with a couple minor changes. I subbed thyme for the oregano-personal preference, used pre-cooked bacon since I had it on hand and it simplified the process. I cooked the medallions to completion on the stove top rather than using the oven. They looked, smelled and tasted great, very tender and moist. I served with rice pilaf and steamed broccoli. DH and our 3 teens all really liked it and I will make again.

Fish Chowder

Reviewed: Sep. 22, 2012
Very good. I followed the recipe closely but did make a few changes. I omitted celery because I didn't have any, used 2 cups of clam juice because I wanted to use some I'd had a while, used 2 5 oz cans of evap milk cause that's what I had on hand. I used tilapia and bay scallops and 2 cans of crab totaling 2 lbs in place of the cod cause that's what I had on hand. I had never used Old Bay before but had a sample pkg on hand so I tried it. It is very good and I ended up adding more, a little at a time until I had used 3/4 tsp. Although it tasted very good at this point I still added my personal favorites in seasoning which were a good splash of sherry(real sherry-not cooking sherry), nutmeg, all spice, cayenne, ginger all to taste. Let simmer and it was wonderful. Served with a tossed salad and warm garlic bread. Thanks AMYTHE!

Pork Chops with Fresh Tomato, Onion, Garlic, and Feta

Reviewed: Aug. 11, 2012
Very good. I did not have grape tomatoes on hand so I just chopped up some slicing tomatoes, worked fine. My family doesn't care much for balsamic vinegar so I used very little of it and supplemented with some red wine vinegar and some white cooking wine. Also sprinkled on a scant 1/4 tsp of sugar to cut the sharpness. After the tomatoes were done I put the chops back in the pan and topped with veggies and feta. Then let it simmer a few minutes to get the chops back up to temp and melt the feta.

Grama's Peppery Parsnips

Reviewed: Aug. 1, 2012
Quick, easy and great! I found this recipe while searching the site for a recipe using parsnips and turnips. I followed a tip from a reviewer and microwaved my chopped & peeled parsnips and turnips first. The used Smart Balance to saute them with 2 chopped green onions. Seasoned with salt & pepper, a small splash of lemon juice and about a 1/2 teaspoon of white sugar. My family does not like much sweetness on veggies so I had to make it white sugar and use just a little. I cooked until they were well caramelized. So delicious! DH & I both loved them and all 3 teens ate them up. We had none left. I think I might like to try adding baby carrots sometime. Thanks charisue!

Classic Hollandaise Sauce

Reviewed: Jul. 24, 2012
Made this tonight to top fresh steamed asparagus. Family loved it. I liked that you can make it in a saucepan rather than the trouble of a double boiler or the less-than-cooked blender version. It took me only 10 min and was creamy and smooth with just the right thickness. I'm sure my sub will put some cooks off - but - in this house I cook with smart balance spread for health reasons - no butter here. So I used 1/2 C smart balance melted in a small sauce pan. In a bowl I whisked 3 egg yolks, 1 1/2 TBSP lemon juice (bottled), 1 tsp cold water and a shake of salt and pepper to our tastes. Whisked it in to the melted smart balance and continued whisking on low heat for about 5 min. It was perfect!

Sherry Apple Pork Chops

Reviewed: Jul. 12, 2012
My whole family enjoyed this dish. I did not have any apples in the house and so I used a can of apple pie filling instead. I added a little extra cinnamon and brown sugar to it along with a bit of dried cherries. Also added some fresh minced garlic to the pan while browning and sprinkled on some dried thyme as I love thyme with pork. Otherwise I followed the directions.

Guacamole

Reviewed: Jun. 9, 2012
Delish! I used green onion and left out the garlic and cayenne and replaced them with 2 seeded jalapenos. Since first trying this recipe I have found a fresh salsa sold at Sam's Club that has all the ingredients so now I keep that on hand for making guac. Just mash avocados, use a slotted spoon to scoop and add the fresh salsa to taste, add salt and lime juice. It's a real time saver and so delicious. **A tip - when buying avocados choose those that still have the little end of the stem attached, otherwise the top of the avocado will be brown upon slicing.**

Butterscotch Pudding I

Reviewed: Feb. 3, 2012
This was very good. I converted the recipe to six servings and followed some suggestions from other reviewers. I mixed the dark brown sugar with only 3 TBSP of corn starch (conversion called for 1/2 cup + 1 TBSP) and the salt in a saucepan. Next I mixed in a combo of 1% milk and half & half and the beaten eggs. I stirred with a whisk until it was heated and thickened. It did take a while and I had started to wonder if I was going to have to find a way to mix in more corn starch without ruining it. But, no worries, it thickened nicely. We ate it warm and thought it was very good. Thanks Kittyann. I'm sure I'll make this again.

Salsa Chicken

Reviewed: Oct. 27, 2011
This was surprisingly good, very moist and flavorful. I put the chicken in the oven still frozen so waited about 30 min to put the salsa on then continued cooking until done. I added cheese the last few minutes but forgot the sour cream. I did however serve it with sliced avacado. The whole family really liked it and I'll make it again. Thanks!

Apple Pie

Reviewed: Oct. 27, 2011
This pie had a very good flavor but it was so very juicy it ruined the crust. I followed the recipe but took a reviewers advice about mixing apple varieties. I used 2 Granny Smith, 2 Golden Delicious and 2 Fuji. I have baked many apple pies and not had this happen so that's why only 3 stars. I normally include some flour or corn starch to help thicken and I think this recipe needs that. Hubby liked it anyway and has almost finished it off - but he's not picky.

Satiny Chocolate Glaze

Reviewed: Oct. 14, 2011
Just made this glaze and am not sure how happy I am with it. I noticed looking at the posted pictures that in some it looked rather thick - which I was hoping for - and in others it looked rather thin. I decided to try it. I followed the recipe except I heated it in the microwave. It was too thin imo, so I let it sit to see if it would thicken any but it did not. I decided to try what one reviewer mentioned and thicken it with powdered sugar. Got it too thick and then thinned it with half & half. Things were just not going my way! The powdered sugar caused it to lose it's glossy look but that was restored with the addition of the half & half. The taste it okay but I'm not the biggest chocolate lover. It's now on the Chocolate Cavity Maker Cake I made from this site for my DD's birthday. I'll update after I serve it tonight. Sure wish I knew what accounts for the different consistencies. UPDATE: worked out fine, everybody loved it, said it tasted like fudge.
