Scalloped Potatoes II

Reviewed: Apr. 20, 2014
I used about 2.5 lbs of medium sized Yukon Golds. Peeled and mandolin'ed into #2 setting slices. Added butter, flour, salt, pepper and gruyere to each layer. Used whole milk and topped with cheese which browned very quickly. Took this out for a bit while Ham continued to roast. Ham out, Potatoes back in for 30 minutes--superb. Also made a delicious creamed spinach and alton brown's city ham. Hubby raved and had LARGe seconds.

Good New Orleans Creole Gumbo

Reviewed: Feb. 8, 2014
Very very good! I made the roux as directed and it did take almost an hour to darken nicely. Meanwhile I brought 4 C of homemade chix stock + 2C water with the 3 tsps Jamisons beef paste to boil. Added the roux/sausage/veggie mix and then added all the other veggies once the roux was heated through. Served this luscious concoction over white rice to rave reviews! Also always make my own Cajun seasoning and added an extra tsp of Thyme. So Good!!

Baked Pork Chops I

Reviewed: Jan. 19, 2014
OK--this was yummy. Hubby doesn't like mushroom so I used creamed of Onion soup. This might be more salty than the mushroom so I added about twice the amount of wine and about 3/4 cup chix stock. Only made 2 thick pork chops but oh so delicious. I could have cut about 20 to 30 minutes off the pre-sauce time. They were still delicious but fell apart--maybe that's the goal but hubby likes them a bit less done. I didn't pour the sauce over the chops, just around them. What a gorgeous color after 30 min in the oven. Made this with german Wirsing (Savoy cabbage, Bacon, Onion and white sauce) and smashed potatoes. super YUMYUM!

Easy Batter Fruit Cobbler

Reviewed: Jul. 28, 2013
I made a blueberry and peach version with a cup of each. It looks wonderful--crispy, sweet goodness but we won't try it until tomorrow at Ravinia. I am sure it will be a hit! So easy. Love!

Taco Seasoning I

Reviewed: Jul. 18, 2013
Well, this was very tasty and more robust then packaged seasonings. I like minimizing the additives in seasoning so it's fun to make my own mixes. Not for sensitive palates but not ueber (auf deutsch)-spicy either. very good!

Red Skinned Potato Salad

Reviewed: Jul. 13, 2013
We loved this. Used 1 cup mayo and approx. 1 cup sour cream. Did not use 1 lb of bacon--maybe 2/3 or 3/4 lb and sprinkled some on top for decoration along with some chopped parsley. Also added some chopped parsley to the body of the salad and only used 2 eggs as that was all I had. Added 2 full stalks of celery since I didn't have as much egg. Super YUM!! don't always make Potato salad so this turned out GREAT and everyone enjoyed it. The bacon really adds something.

Asian Chicken Salad

Reviewed: Jun. 16, 2013
I made various changes and we both loved this Asian inspired salad. I used 2 sliced chix breasts and marinated them in 2-3 tblsps soy, 2 tblsp honey, 1 tsp red pepper flakes, 1 tblsp crushed ginger, 2 cloves minced garlic & 1/4 C OJ for about 4 hours. I prepared chopped iceburg in each bowl, shredded carrots, scallions, chopped water chestnuts, chopped fresh mint and basil and topped with the sautéed marinated chicken. Next time I will add something crisp/starchy and probably some toasted slivered almonds or crisy noodles. Only used 2 tblsp veggie oil for the dressing and this was excellent...didn't need more oil. Would also be good with some shredded red cabbage and peas.

Banana Margaritas

Reviewed: May 26, 2013
I had a nice ripe banana and so my mind immediately leapt to MARGARITAS! I found this recipe and did a couple of things differently. 1. I added the one fresh banana and about 2 frozen bananas which had started to discolor a bit from the freezer (which is why I threw them in). There was some delicious syrup and such in the ziploc that also ended up in the blender. 2. I filled a pint glass full about 1 and 1/2 times with crushed ice and dumped that in--not 6 cups worth but perfect. The 6 oz of tequila was mixed 1/2 silver and 1/2 gold. I did sprinkle the sugar in but I will omit for the next batch--didn't need it as it was plenty sweet from the limeade. Very Good!

Pesto Torta (Layered Spread)

Reviewed: Dec. 16, 2012
Made this for a holiday party yesterday. I did drain the pesto which I purchased in the refrigerated deli section of the store. Also drained the Sun Dried tomatoes I diced and put on top. There was a lot of food at the party but everyone who tried this loved it. I would probably be a bit more careful layering it next time and maybe try it with the roasted peppers as well.

Parmesan Sage Pork Chops

Reviewed: Dec. 16, 2012
I made these chops for my husband's b'day dinner and they were a HIT! Loved the addition of the lemon zest. I only had powdered sage and thought it might overwhelm the dish but it did not and was delicious with the parmesan beadcrumb mix. He ate the other chop the next day after I had re-heated in the microwave and it was still Fabulously flavorful. Will definitely make these again.

Creamy Italian Dressing I

Reviewed: Oct. 29, 2012
This was very good. I used what I had on hand which was 2 cloves of garlic, crema mexicana, mayo, a little sour cream, 1/2 small yellow onion, dried basil, 2 tblsps white wine vinegar, 3/4 tblsps sugar (I would cut this down next time--maybe 1/2 tblsp), sea salt and fresh cracked pepper. Really loved it! And easily adaptable to ingredients you have in the frig or pantry.

BLT Dip

Reviewed: Jun. 10, 2012
Oh boy....this was so delicious. While I never usually use full fat mayo or sour cream, I did use both full fat versions when I made this for our trip to Ravinia last night. I also used a lower sodium Oscar Mayer because that's what I had in the house. I finely diced the tomato after removing the seeds and let them drain in a paper towel. I added this when I added the bacon and the dip did get a bit thinner but was perfect for the wheat thins. Also had some chopped romaine that we put on each cracker-full! Really made it taste like mini BLTs!! I will definitely be making this again.

The Real Mojito

Reviewed: May 28, 2012
Hubby and I had these years ago down in Key West where Hemingway was said to have consumed these in mass quantities. I like to put a bit of sugar in the glass (tall pint type) with the mint leaves as it helps to pull the oil out of the mint when muddling. I then add mint simple syrup to taste. (easy to make, just add mint to the syrup at the end of your cooking time and let steep for 15 minutes) Also you can use plain water or seltzer or sprite or whatever tickles your palate. These are dangerous and super yum!

Slow Cooker Beef Pot Roast

Reviewed: Apr. 29, 2012
I was looking for a pot roast recipe I could adjust for my Mom's gluten intolerance and this was it! I used corn starch instead of flour and left out the mushrooms as my hubby doesn't like them. I will make those separately with bacon and onion. Added about 1/4 cup red wine and homemade chicken stock. It smells divine! I will also make mashed potatoes, creamed spinach and boston lettuce with sour cream herb dressing---super YUM for a sunday dinner.

Fried Cabbage II

Reviewed: Apr. 15, 2012
Delish! I only had about a small half cabbage leftover so sliced that thin, 1 sm onion diced, and used about 1/2 Easter Polish sausage from Paulina Meat Market chopped. Over Med ht 2 tblsp bacon fat sizzled and added onion until soft then added sausage to brown up a bit. Added cabbage. Made a slurry of water, salt and pepper and stirred that in. after covered simmering for 15-20 min, heaven! served this with brown rice and hubby loved it.

Slow Cooker Carnitas

Reviewed: Feb. 11, 2012
The carnitas were a huge hit at our superbowl mexican fiesta party. I had an 8 lb pork shoulder that I probably used 5-6 lbs of in the slow cooker--cut into fist size chunks. I tripled the spice rub but lightened up on the cinnamon to just 2.5 times. The smell was divine. I did pull the meat out and toasted it up in the 400 degree oven for a few minutes before serving with burrito shells and tons of veggies, salsa, cheese, guac, etc. Had Mexican Rice II and Mexican Bean Salad from Allrecipes as sides. Everything was just wonderful.

Mexican Bean Salad

Reviewed: Feb. 11, 2012
This was absolutely delicious. The dressing was so fresh. I made this the day before and stored it in the frig in a large ziploc overnite. I used a red and orange pepper because our friends can't eat green pepper. I also omitted the cilantro as hubby doesn't like it but the rest was done as written and got RAVE reviews at our mexican fiesta superbowl party. Served this with the crockpot Carnitas recipe and Mexican Rice II both from Allrecipes. Everyone raved and wanted recipes!

Broccoli Chicken Casserole I

Reviewed: Nov. 20, 2011
We prefer another recipe that includes chix breasts, sage bfkst sausage, peas, stuffing, water chestnuts, onion, celery and 2 cans cream of chix or celery or mushroom soup. This recipe was just ok and I will go back to the other one.
