Tangy Catalina Pasta Salad

Reviewed: May 12, 2014
I made this two nights ago to go with Big Smokey Burgers from this site. I used tri-colored rotini, and I also had to double ingredients. I used all tuna, and when done it tasted like it came from a bottle, a can, and a jar. So to give it a more "fresh" taste, I added chopped fresh dill and lemon juice and salt (cringe, but it needed it). I think next time I will use fresh shrimp and these modifications. There is maybe 1 serving left in the fridge and only 3 of us so I guess we did like it.

Big Smokey Burgers

Reviewed: May 12, 2014
Very tasty burger. I'm not sure what grill seasoning is so I used the Montreal Steak seasoning instead. I'll be using this recipe again.

Scrumptious Baked Chicken and Potatoes

Reviewed: Jan. 5, 2014
I reversed the process on this. I took the potatoes, placed in a bowl and added the olive oil and seasonings and tossed together. Put the chicken into a baking dish and spread the potatoes around. I seasoned the chicken with garlic powder, s & p, then drizzled the remaining oil from the potatoes over the chicken. I put enough chicken broth in just to cover the botom of the pan, turns out I didn't really need to as the fat from the chicken would have done the trick. The end result was crispy skin chicken and lovely roasted potatoes. Next time I will check after 30 minutes, some of the fat may need to be drained off. Clean up was a breeze! Will be making again. Update: Made this again and brushed chicken with BBQ sauce for an additional 10 mins. YUM.

Rosemary Sherry Pork Chops

Reviewed: Dec. 12, 2013
This was an easy, uncomplicated week night dinner. I also reduced the oil to 2 tbsps. I used Port wine as that's what I had in the house. Timing was right on. Very simple flavors that stand up to a spicy or more complicated side dish. I served it with scalloped potatoes and I did like that it wasn't very "saucy". However, I do think I would double the sauce for certain side dishes. Thank you Stacyo for a new dinner idea.

Italian Pinwheel Rolls

Reviewed: Dec. 2, 2013
Made these the other night to go with Baked Ziti. They were a hit! I proofed my yeast first then added the remaining ingredients. Mine only took 2 cups of flour and did not have the sticky problem others mentioned. Rose beautifully. I didn't melt the butter, just spread soften butter onto dough and used dry parsley. Also topped with softened butter before baking and they browned nicely. Very nice soft roll but next time I think I'll use roasted garlic as the raw garlic was very strong. These have so much potential for using other fillings!

I have made this recipe twice now. I use leftover sweet potatoes and follow the recipe exactly and the rolls turn out perfect.

Oven Roasted Parmesan Potatoes

Reviewed: Aug. 5, 2013
Very good. A trick I learned from a friend years ago, if you parboil your potatoes for just a few minutes you will yield a crispier roasted potato.

Creamiest Rice Pudding

Reviewed: Jul. 30, 2013
I have always thought the best rice pudding was made on top of the stove with raw rice and this recipe so proves me right. The timing was perfect. The rice pudding was perfect. My only advice is to keep an eye on it while cooking as it will boil over quickly. I will be making this recipe many more times. Thank you Bonnie Q for a great recipe.

Waffles I

Reviewed: Jun. 9, 2013
This was my first time making waffles and these were great. Mine only yielded 5 but that was enough. For those having a soggy effect, I read somewhere (probably here) after taking out of the waffle iron DON'T stack them but place on a paper towel then on a cookie sheet if keeping warm in the oven. We had ours with ice cream, oooohh what a treat.

Basic Cheese Polenta

Reviewed: Jun. 9, 2013
This was so easy to make. I, too, used less parmesan, added some cream cheese, garlic powder, and some cheddar. Turned out great. This will be my go-to polenta recipe from now on.

Cinnamon Swirl Bundt Coffee Cake

Reviewed: Jun. 1, 2013
Very delicious coffee cake. Read all the reviews and took from them. I've always creamed butter and sugar first then added eggs one at a time. Once all the ingredients were combined,I mixed the batter another 2 minutes at medium speed.I doubled the cinnamon/sugar and made 2 layers. For the reviewer who's batter didn't fill the pan, I don't know what happened I had a very full pan and yielded a nice size bundt cake.

Bacon and Blue Brussels Sprouts

Reviewed: Feb. 26, 2013
I have made this so many times already I can't believe I haven't rated it until now. I have a friend who requests this when she comes for dinner and over the weekend we had her birthday dinner. Her father called me the next day for the recipe, he was making it again for that night! I like it better when I sub chicken stock for the water. I use fresh sprouts and they do take longer than 4-6 minutes to make them tender. I have to admit, I never use the vinegar, I'm not much of a vinegar person.

Strawberry Cake Filling

Reviewed: Feb. 26, 2013
Perfect! Easy and fast! I used fresh strawberries as that was what I had in the house. I made it a day ahead of the cake and it set up great. Only thing I might change in cutting the strawberries a little larger next time. Will be making this again.

Garlic and Herb Cream Cheese

Reviewed: Feb. 26, 2013
I have made this three times now and everyone really enjoys it. First time very garlicy so I decreased the garlic 2nd & 3rd times. The butter is a little too funky for me so 2nd time added some sour cream, 3rd time did just cream cheese. Make it ahead of time so the flavors blend well. Unlike previous reviewers, I had no problem with dry herbs but can't wait until summer to try with fresh.

White Chocolate Cake

Reviewed: Feb. 26, 2013
I wish I read more of the reviews before I made this cake. Taste-wise it is delicious but it was a lot of work to save the day. I have been baking for almost 50 years and have never had such a disaster of a cake! Too much batter for 9-inch pans,took longer to baked then specified, fell apart coming out of the pans, icing way to runny and the final straw after making this as presentable as possible the frosted cake cracked in half! I will NEVER make this again.

Steve's Famous Garlic Home Fries

Reviewed: Nov. 5, 2012
These are the best home fries I have EVER made! I did large cubes and left the lid on for 15 mins, off for 10. Used half butter/half evoo, garlic powder and chopped onion for chives as I didn't have any. This will be my go to recipe for now on.
