Best Fried Green Tomatoes

Reviewed: Oct. 11, 2013
I have nothing to compare these to as I've never even eaten a fried green tomato before, but we loved them! A co-worker was leaving for vacation and still had many tomatoes on the vine so he picked them and brought them to work in case someone might want them. I brought a few home and found this recipe. They were quick and easy to make. I had a couple packets of "Honey-Baked Ham savory sauce" in the fridge so we used that as a "dip". That really made these delicious! Hubby ate the left-overs the next evening and declared them still tasty!

Creamy Pheasant and Noodle

Reviewed: Sep. 30, 2013
Fantastic!! My son, while in college was President of the Hunting/Outdoor Club and organized a father/son pheasant hunt. Since we live in NE Ohio, there aren't many pheasants running around, so it was on a hunting preserve. Many of the boys/dads did not want their pheasants so my hubby & son took all the extras, in addition to their own bag limits. I had tons of pheasant in my freezer. This recipe was a super delicious way to use some up! I followed the recipe exact except no carrots as hubby does not like cooked carrots. Instead I added sliced mushrooms with the peas. The result was a creamy, comfort food on a cool Fall night. You can bet I will make this recipe over and over. Lucky for me my husband is President of a dog club that hosts an AKC Springer Field Trial every year and you guessed it - pheasants are used in the field. He brings home at least a dozen pheasants every year for the freezer. This is a keeper for sure!

Delicious Easy Chicken Francese

Reviewed: Sep. 16, 2013
I'm giving this 5 stars because it is really good - I'll just make a couple changes next time around. The biggest change is use a little less lemon juice. My lemons were quite large, so that could be part of it, but it was a bit over-powering. I also did not put this in the oven - because my oven died in the morning. I cooked the chicken in my cast-iron skillet, then removed it to a plate while I made the sauce. Once the sauce had thickened I added the chicken back into the skillet and let it simmer for about 15-20 minutes. Good stuff!!

Yummy! Had limoncello in the fridge that just kept staring at me, so looked up some recipes. This is a keeper! Cool and refreshing!

Chiles Rellenos Autenticos

Reviewed: Aug. 31, 2013
Very good - but I am very partial to our restaurant's recipe. I could not find cotija cheese, so used queso blanco instead. I may make these again, but probably will just go to the restaurant for them.

Moist Chocolate Muffins

Reviewed: Aug. 31, 2013
These were very good and easy to make! They were very chocolatey, yet light. I got 18 muffins out of this (I used a standard sized muffin pan), and mine were done in 15 minutes. Definitely satisfied my chocolate craving! *Note: I followed recipe exact, except I had to substitute sour cream for the yogurt as I did not have any yogurt.

Cheesecake Topped Brownies

Reviewed: Aug. 28, 2013
These are good - what brownie isn't good??!! But, I was a little disappointed in them - the cheesecake middle doesn't really stand out as much as I had anticipated. I do like them and I might make them again, but I'll try what one other reviewer did and not frost them but melt choc. chips & butter and pour over the top instead. These definitely are a great fix for a chocolate craving!

Grandma's Best Ever Sour Cream Lasagna

Reviewed: Jul. 21, 2013
Really good flavor! This morning hubby stated he was hungry for lasagna so I thought I'd surprise him with a pan for dinner. As I pulled out my ingredients, I discovered my ricotta cheese was not good so I pulled up AllRecipes and found a recipe that did not call for ricotta or cottage cheese (I can't stand cottage cheese). This was perfect. He said I could make this recipe again, even though it had no ricotta cheese.

Quick Garlic Breadsticks

Reviewed: Jul. 21, 2013
Great way to use up hot dog buns, or to make garlic bread in a pinch! I only used 2 hot dog buns because there were just the two of us, but I used the same amounts of the basil, cheese and garlic powder. When hubby came to the table he chuckled at our "hillbilly garlic bread".

Blueberry Smoothie

Reviewed: Jun. 30, 2013
It was good, but really tasted more like blueberry yogurt made runny enough to drink. I used frozen blueberries I had picked. I think if I make it again, I'll not add the sugar as it would have been sweet enough without.

Chicken In Basil Cream

Reviewed: Jun. 8, 2013
This was delicious! Hubby took one bite and said "I really like this meal!" I only made 2 chicken breasts as it was just the two of us, but made the full amount of sauce. I recommend making double sauce, like other reviewers said, so you have some for pasta. I used my basil out of my herb garden - the smell was divine! I will be making this again for sure!

Spinach Stuffed Chicken Breasts

Reviewed: May 30, 2013
This was very good! I followed the recipe, the only difference was I used bone-in/skin-on chicken breasts. I also brushed an herb-infused olive oil over the chicken to make the skin crispy. It took them about an hour to get done and they were delicious! My bacon crisped up nicely, probably because I didn't cover it; I totally didn't see that step until I just now came back to review it. We'll have this again!

Pork Rib Rub

Reviewed: May 27, 2013
Yummy! We made ribs today and this rub was great. After I put it on the baby back ribs I stuck the ribs on a rack in the pan, put them in the oven on about 225 degrees and cooked them low and slow. Once done,I generously brushed Sweet Baby Ray's BBQ sauce on them and stuck them under the broiler for a few minutes. Great flavor!

The Best Parmesan Chicken Bake

Reviewed: May 20, 2013
I made this for a Sunday family dinner get-together. None of the kids liked it (and they all love chicken parmesan), and most of the adults agreed it was OK, but nothing to write home about. I followed the recipe exactly. I found there was little marinara sauce and the croutons were mostly mushy. It also took my chicken breasts 1-1/2 hours to get done. I most likely won't make this again.

Strawberry Cake from Scratch

Reviewed: May 19, 2013
I did like the taste of this cake, but it was very dense. I also had a real problem with the baking time. I don't blame the recipe for that, though, as I was attempting to make this in a Pyrex bowl for a Princess Barbie Cake. I figured that I should double the baking time. At that point it was still not done, so I added an additional 15 minutes and the top was getting quite dark and crispy looking, so I pulled it out of the oven as it did spring back when touched. I let cool 15 minutes then tried to take it out of the bowl. Oh my! The entire thing collapsed - it was still completely raw in the middle! It made a heck of a mess. The color was nice and the outside 1/2" or so that was done tasted good. I had to throw it all away, obviously, and I made another cake using a different recipe that came out fine. I might try this again but make it in the "normal" pans to see how it comes out.

Barbie Doll Cake

Reviewed: May 19, 2013
The things we do for love!! I wanted to make this cake for a dear 6 year old girl. The first round I tried to make a home-made strawberry cake from scratch that bombed. The second round turned out perfectly - but I discovered Barbie is WAY too tall to make this work. I had hubby cut her legs off just above the knees. She then fit in perfectly. I was a little disappointed that we had to ruin the Princess Ballerina Barbie but I guess I'll just keep her for future Princess Cakes.

Oatmeal Banana Nut Bread

Reviewed: May 11, 2013
My bread came out very moist and full of banana flavor! I didn't have walnuts, so I used pecans instead. I prefer them over walnuts. I did use a little extra banana,but only because I had it. I'll make this again.

Lemon and Cilantro Shrimp

Reviewed: Apr. 28, 2013
As written this recipe barely makes it to a 3 star recipe. I made a few changes to it so we did enjoy this meal. First off, I zested one lemon only - 6 would have been way too much lemon! I cut back on the cilantro as well - I cut up about 1/2 cup and that was more than enough. I also added some garlic powder and parmesan cheese. Served it over pasta, and we melted butter to pour over it as it seemed sort of dry. Used more parmesan cheese at the table. I might make this again, and if I do I will also pour some white wine into the mix for some added flavor and liquid.

Monkey Bars

Reviewed: Apr. 27, 2013
I'm only giving this recipe 5 stars for one reason - It should make more!! Seriously - if I could rate it a "10" I would! These are so moist and the banana flavor is great! My bananas were very ripe and I think that helps to impart more great banana flavor. I didn't use raisins as I'm not a huge fan of them, but instead used chocolate chips. I didn't put the choc.chips in the microwave with the rum though, as I did not want them to melt. Instead I heated the rum for 10 seconds, let cool a bit, then added 1/2 c. chocolate chips. Delicious!!

Grandmother's Buttermilk Cornbread

Reviewed: Apr. 25, 2013
This was a good cornbread. We enjoyed it very much. I followed the directions exactly. I really saved on dishes, though; instead of pouring the batter into a pan I simply baked it in my cast-iron skillet. Worked beautifully!
