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!

Deviled Eggs

Reviewed: Nov. 23, 2010
WOW! I made these two days before Thanksgiving to test the recipe. They were so good I almost ate all of them! I will be proud to serve these at Thanksgiving. To add my own special touch I used Truffle Salt instead of regular salt and it was G-R-E-A-T!

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.

Fideo

Reviewed: Dec. 2, 2010
EXCELLENT! I sauted 1/2 onion along with the fideo for about 7 minutes stirring constantly so that the fideo wouldn't burn. Added 2 garlic cloves for 30 seconds. Added 1 1/2 cups chicken broth, 1/2 can tomato sauce, cumin, and salt. After liquid became creamy I added the 2nd half of the sauce as directed.So I really didn't change it up that much. Just added personal tastes. I will definetly use this recipe again. Oh..when I ate it I had shredded chicken with white corn tortillas on the side. THIS ONE IS A KEEPER!

Cake Balls

Reviewed: Dec. 13, 2010
...FIVE STARS +.... These are awesome. I made the cake and mixed in icing using a fork (I didn't want it too mushy). Left in fridge overnight. Shaped into balls and put balls in freezer for at least 3 hours. Then dipped in the melted chocolate and white chocolate bark. I sprinkled some with crushed pecans and some with crushed Oreos. They are a major hit! They are perfect to place in a box and give as Christmas goodies. I already have another batch in my fridge. I have gotten so many compliments!! Woohoo...my new dessert staple has been found! Thanks much to whoever created this recipe!

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!

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!

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.

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!!

Caldo de Res (Mexican Beef Soup)

Reviewed: Jan. 24, 2011
Wonderful on a cold winters night! I did as suggested and cooked the meat for 2-3 hours. Meat fell off bones! I like it a little spicier so I used a can of Rotel instead of plain tomatoes. Worked wonderful. Had leftovers for almost a week! Will def make again...probably next weekend! :>)

Chocolate Brittle Surprise

Reviewed: Dec. 16, 2012
This certainly is an addicting, delishous, yummy recipe!! After reading reviews, I decided try both saltines and graham crackers in the same pan. I liked the graham crackers better...but that's a personal taste. Also, I found it a lot easier to crumble the crackers into small size pieces and put that on the pan instead of individual crackers. This way all the cracker pieces were covered with the sugar/butter mix. I was very disappointed that most of the pecans fell off the crackers so on my second batch I added in the cup of pecans to the sugar/butter mix BEFORE pouring over crackers. That worked out wonderful!! Be sure to buy extra of all incredients because you'll definetly want to make a second batch.

Oyster and Cornbread Dressing

Reviewed: Nov. 27, 2010
I used fresh oysters (16oz) and kept everything else mostly the same. I didn't have any sage. I used 2 Jiffy cornbread mixes and that was a little too sweet for me. Next time I will use a non-sweet cornbread. The recipe was wonderful! I did need to add a lot of salt after it was done but I am a salt addict. I like my dressing crunchy and extra done on top so after 45 minutes I turned on the broiler and broiled for about 5-7 minutes and it was yummy! I can't wait to make this for Christmas!

Roasted Turkey Legs

Reviewed: Dec. 27, 2010
I am so glad that I tried this recipe as I found it to be a great 'base' recipe. I only had turkey thighs. I 'brined' the turkey thighs with salt water for 4 hours and won't do that again as it came out to salty (my fault). Put lots of butter under the skin and used s/p/season salt. Put butter under thighs in pan also. Needed to add about 15 minutes cooking time. Worked great!!! I will def make this again.
