Cream of Mushroom Soup I

Reviewed: May 17, 2010
WOW! I have been looking for a recipe for Cream of Mushroom soup that tastes like the soup from La Madeleine. I have found it! The only thing I did differently was saute the onion and mushrooms for 15 minutes. I will make this again and again.

Delicious Ham and Potato Soup

Reviewed: Sep. 18, 2010
Love it! Of course, I had to make it my 'own' so I changed it just a bit. Sauted onion/celery and added carrots in butter. Added ham and potatoes with chicken broth instead of water. Added bay leaf and thyme. After I added cream mix to soup, I added garlic powder and about 1/4 cup Cooking Sherry. I will use this recipe many times over and use various meat - clams or chicken and even mushrooms. I double it cuz it is the yummiest!!

Southern Style Banana Split Cake

Reviewed: Sep. 19, 2010
This came out a little 'watery'. It is not a good dish 2 days later. Ingredients seem to separate.

Creamed Spinach III

Reviewed: Sep. 19, 2010
Delicious. I didn't have fresh spinach so I used frozen spinach that I defrosted and got all the water out of. Turned out great.

To Die For Fettuccine Alfredo

Reviewed: Sep. 19, 2010
Wow! This was a wonderfully rich recipe. I did add sauted mushrooms. I only sauted them for about 4 minutes so they didn't get mushy when added to the pasta. I also added fresh ground nutmeg on top...double Wow!

The Original Potato Salad with Real Mayonnaise

Reviewed: Sep. 19, 2010
This was just okay. I didn't have any celery and I think that may have helped a lot. May have to try again and re-rate.

A hit for all! I will make this again and try different types of ribs with the same technique. May try a dry rub too.

Gunline Coffee

Reviewed: Sep. 21, 2010
Very yummy! I needed more caffiene so I added a 'shot' of espresso that they sell in individual packets at the grocery! It worked. I may use this recipe as Christmas Presents in a Jar!

Easy Beer Bread Mix

Reviewed: Sep. 22, 2010
This was good but I must have cooked it too long. I think it may have only taken 35 minutes. Needs more flavor. Maybe dark beer and more herbs. Will make again to experiment.

Karyn's Cream of Crab Soup

Reviewed: Sep. 29, 2010
GREAT RECIPE! This soup turned out wonderful. I cut down on the Old Bay as did others and I do agree that 3T would be a bit much for my taste. However, this is a recipe that will be used again and again. Thanks Karyn!

Karyn - I wish I would have found this recipe but I had to hunt down your profile to find it! I just made your cream of crab soup and it rocked! I wish you had more recipes out there. I will have to try your dad's crab cake recipe next. I hope to find more recipes by you!! Yummy! I am rating 5 stars because I am sure it will be great too.

Baked Maryland Lump Crab Cakes

Reviewed: Oct. 1, 2010
4 Stars because there was not a lot of filler and the crab flavor really came out. Removed one Star because it was a little bland. Needed more Old Bay or Salt or something that I can't put my finger on. Definetly needs to be kept in refrigerator for at least 1 hour to help hold cake together while cooking. Don't cook too long as it will dry out. I will absolutely make again with a few tweaks. It's a keeper.

Southern Dirty Rice

Reviewed: Oct. 5, 2010
Very good base recipe to add extra incredients to suite your taste. Instead of putting the chicken livers in a blender, I sauteed them and then just used a potato masher in the skillet to break up but not smash. This is a keeper.

Sausage and Egg Casserole

Reviewed: Oct. 5, 2010
My boyfriend made this for guests and it was perfect! We didn't have to worry about cooking on the morning of our football game. Everything was done the day before. Made it again on the next football weekend! We make again and again.

Chicken Tetrazzini IV

Reviewed: Oct. 31, 2010
Very good recipe. Easy, easy, easy. I doubled the 'cream sauce' as suggested and am glad that I did. I also added bread crumbs to the top while baking and that added a lot of flavor. My 'secret' ingredient...added a pinch of fresh nutmeg to cream sauce. Will def make again. Yum!

I like to sprinkle mine with toasted sesame seeds before baking. Adds a nice crunch!

Nana's Acorn Squash

Reviewed: Nov. 7, 2010
This was wonderful. I will always prepare acorn squash this way from now on. The salt/pepper really help bring out the savory taste.

Peppermint Brittle

Reviewed: Nov. 14, 2010
Surprisingly delicious! Based on other recommendations I did add a teaspoon of peppermint extract to the melted almond bark. Next time I will add crushed peppermint candies to the bark before letting it harden. Also, when you add the crushed peppermint on top of the spread out bark you need to smush it into the bark. If not, it won't stick. It didn't harden as well as I would have liked it to. Next time I may add a bit of cornstrach to see if that will help. All-in-all a great dessert! I will make again!
