Gravy Baked Pork Chops

Reviewed: Nov. 9, 2014
I just made something very much like this. I did not use milk, however, I dusted the pork chops with a bit of regular flour before I browned them, so that added thickening. I also added 1 large yellow onion, coarse chopped; 1/2 pound of fresh mushrooms, quartered; and 8 golf ball sized red potatoes, cut in half. It was a great meal-in-a-pan!!!

Mama's Potato Salad

Reviewed: Jul. 8, 2012
Awesome recipe! This is so close to my own recipe, it is astonishing. One thing...I don't consider the dill pickles to be 'optional'...they are a must. Also, I don't think I use a full 2 cups of mayonnaise when I make mine, but I DO add one incredible ingredient that makes it 'to die for'...BACON! For this volume, I think that 6-8 slices, cooked crisp, would make this the 'going away' best.

Tree-Shaped Crescent Veggie Appetizers

Reviewed: Dec. 12, 2011
Loved this recipeI I used very small cherry tomato halves, broccoli flower tips, baby carrot circles, tiny cucumber wedges, yellow/red/green bell pepper squares and a bright yellow Cheddar cheese star at the top. One thing is to use quite a lot of veggies for coverage that looks colorful. If you cut your red bell pepper along the curves, the 'garland' looks very cool! I subbed garlic flavored spreadable cream cheese only because I had it, but I sprinkled the dill weed very lightly and sort of randomly over the whole tree once I got the veggies settled where I wanted them. There were only a few people at the party, but it was all gone, fast!

Maryanne's Cornbread

Reviewed: Nov. 27, 2011
I know that many people like a sweetened cornbread, but I felt this was really over the top on the sweetness end. If I were to make it again, I would reduce the sugar to 1/2 cup or possibly even a bit less and I would go to, at max, 1/2 cup butter. I did not have frozen corn on hand, so I drained and rinsed a regular sized can of corn (I use the reduced salt type) and it was very good.

Pepperoni Drop Biscuits

Reviewed: Nov. 8, 2011
To push up the cheesy Italian flavor, I used 1 1/2 cups of mozzarella cheese instead of Cheddar and added 1/2 cup of grated Parmesan cheese. Also sprayed olive oil Pam on the pan to avoid sticking. Awesome with my special seafood lasagna. Also subbed bacon pieces for pepperoni, but I will leave out the Italian seasoning next time I use bacon. Lots of great variations on this basic recipe!!

Mexican Shrimp Cocktail

Reviewed: Aug. 31, 2011
Very authentic recipe although the best I have eaten included some finely chopped celery that made for a mild bloody Mary twist.

South Texas Tartar Sauce

Reviewed: Jun. 27, 2010
There are a couple of very important items missing in this recipe. One is anchovie paste. I don't know the amount, sorry. The other is that the real original used a tiny pepper called a chile petin instead of jalepenos or serranos. The last comment is that the real product takes on a light beige color rather than being so white, so I feel the amount of Ritz crackers may be off slightly. The consistency is very thick and 'spreadable' rather than easily dippable. Once you try it, you will remember the taste and texture forever and will, as I have, try to reproduce it, unsuccesfully.
