Old Charleston Style Shrimp and Grits

Reviewed: Jan. 12, 2015
Excellent! My hubby loved this dish! Very filling, unfortunately I had to use the store brought instant grits, as I could not find the old fashioned grits. The only modifications that I made is that I used, 2% milk instead of half and half, I forgot the lemon so I used Lemon pepper seasoning to replace the lemon and cayenne pepper. As my kids are not too keen on spicy foods. I also used margarine instead of butter.

Chewy Chocolate Chip Oatmeal Cookies

Reviewed: Dec. 28, 2014
Very good! Added 1 1/2 cups of flour instead, as someone suggested. Make sure you bake for the full 12 minutes suggested, and not a minute longer, as this makes a difference in the chewiness.

Fresh Tomato Shrimp Pasta

Reviewed: Aug. 28, 2013
I cook this recipe at least twice a month. I substituted with canned diced tomatoes instead of fresh. I also used a blend of Asiago and Parmesan cheese. It's a big hit in my family.

Baked Ziti III

Reviewed: Sep. 5, 2012
Was a hit with my hubby!! He loved it. I was unsure about the sour cream so I limited the amount that I added, however the sour cream is what gives it the rich flavor. I will definitely use this recipe again.

Seven Layer Dip I

Reviewed: Feb. 5, 2012
Was a hit for the superbowl. I used ground turkey instead of ground beef, and I added some taco seasonings to the meat for flavor, as this recipe called for no seasoning. I also used light sour cream.

The Best Rolled Sugar Cookies

Reviewed: Dec. 28, 2011
I am in the minority. This recipe was not a hit to me. The cookies were flavorless and taste like I was eating plain sugar.

Deep-Fried Turkey Marinade

Reviewed: Nov. 26, 2011
Wow, is all I can say. My first fried Turkey for Thanksgiving was an huge success. Thanks to this marinade. Initially I was thinking that using 1 cup of any seasoning would be over-kill, in fact when I got to the Cayenne Pepper, I had a coughing attack due to the large quantity of it that the recipe calls for. But after the turkey cooked, you could not tast the cayenne pepper at all. It was very flavorable.

Lemon Cake

Reviewed: Nov. 26, 2011
Cake was delicious and moist. However I wish I would have opted for the regular pudding versus the sugar free. My guests complained about the after taste.

Southern Grilled Barbecued Ribs

Reviewed: Jul. 4, 2011
Did these for the 4th and July and they were superb! I would recommend after basting in vinegar to use your own seasonings before placing on the grill to add more flavor.

Greek Pasta Salad with Shrimp, Tomatoes, Zucchini, Peppers, and Feta

Reviewed: Jul. 4, 2011
I made this for the 4th of July and it was a big hit! My hubby loved it. The only thing I changed was I did not have any rice vinegar so I used red wine vinegar. Will definitely make again.

Spinach and Strawberry Salad

Reviewed: Jun. 21, 2010
I made this for father's day. My husband loved it! I made a few modifications. I used red whine vinegar, and sesame oil for my oil substitute. I also did not have any poppy seeds and used only the sesame seeds in which I toasted.

Crispy Oven-Roasted Rosemary Chicken with Sausage and Potatoes

Reviewed: Apr. 18, 2010
I did not care for this at all. I don't sausage, chicken, and potatoes compliment each other when prepared this way. Will never make again.

Zesty Penne, Sausage and Peppers

Reviewed: Feb. 26, 2010
I made this last night, I was somewhat hesitant about adding the cream cheese, after I tasted it before it melted in the pan, it tasted too rich, therefore I removed what had not been melted. It tastes much better without the cream cheese.
