Salmon Appetizers

Reviewed: Dec. 6, 2013
This is a real easy recipe to throw together as an appetizer for a party. However, I found the combination of the cream cheese and the salmon was very sweet tasting. If I can find a way to cut the sweetness, then it'd be perfect.

Fresh Asparagus Soup

Reviewed: Dec. 6, 2013
I've made this twice already and it is awesome. The last time I made the mistake of using too much fresh lemon juice and it sorta killed the taste. A little goes a long way. It's the only way I'll eat asparagus now. Don't forget to eat with a spoonful of sour cream on top!

Mrs. Baxton's Long Island Iced Tea

Reviewed: Dec. 6, 2013
I'm not a drinker, so of course this packed a real PUNCH IN THE FACE for me. But surprisingly, my good friend who is a heavy drinker joked that one of these teas was enough to knock him out cold. We both could barely finish our 1 glass each. I do not advise driving after drinking this. We could barely walk straight afterwards and we'd just finished eating.

The Best Lemon Bars

Reviewed: Dec. 6, 2013
This was a complete mess to make! I used a slightly smaller brownie pan (6.5 x 10.5), which was probably not the best idea. The lemon mixture spilled all over the place. I had really low expectations making this dessert. I ended up burning the crust and the lemon mixture came out way too thin and watery. However, I poured the lemon mixture on top of the crust and I shoved it in the oven, and took my chances. It took way longer to cook than the stated 20 minutes, more like 40 minutes for me. After letting it cool down, I added the powdered sugar and lemon zest, and it looked very pretty. I packed it up and took it to a dinner party without tasting it and I hoped for the best. I was shocked to take a bite out of it at the party and discover it was so delicious. Everyone raved about how good it was too!!! This is truly a no-fail recipe. But does anyone know how to prevent the powder sugar from melting on top? It looked like the bars were sweating at the party.

Juiciest Hamburgers Ever

Reviewed: Apr. 16, 2010
Tastes juicy and received rave reviews, but I found it to be very bland. I'll make again, however, I'll be sure to include a tablespoon of oregano & basil and a teaspoon of salt & pepper to add some needed flavor.

Roast Beef Stuffed Shells

Reviewed: Jan. 21, 2010
I don't think I've had so much fun making a dish before. I loved using my hands to stuff the shells full of the roast beef and everything. I felt like a kid again. Plus, my family said it tasted great. It did take them awhile to figure out the mystery ingredient, horseradish sauce. LOL. I used mozzarella cheese instead of cheddar but next time I'll use a mixture of both.

Old-Fashioned Wilted Lettuce

Reviewed: Jan. 13, 2010
This recipe is so easy and delicious. I wasn't sure about the recipe when I first read it but the bacon really helps add flavor. The better quality the bacon the better off you'll be. We used beef bacon because we don't eat pork. And the dressing with bacon drippings is interesting, not sure if the family loved it or hated it - but everyone found it interesting. Next time I'd add shredded cheese for that extra kick. I recommend making this for Sunday brunch and invite friends over.

Garlic Chicken Fried Chicken

Reviewed: Jan. 13, 2010
OK but I didn't find this recipe flavorful. Next time I make it I'm going to have to spice it up.

Asparagus and Goat Cheese Quesadillas

Reviewed: Jan. 4, 2010
These were so good I wanted to SLAP myself and everyone else at the table. LOL. Yes, it was that tasty and rich! You don't even taste the asparagus because of the goat cheese. Now I finally have a dish that I can make with asparagus that isn't too bitter or slimy to eat. I did change the recipe a bit. I made two of these with Naan bread. I sliced the Naans in half and layed the ingredients on the bottom piece, then put a wheat tortilla on top and layered again. Buttered the top piece of the Naan and finally placed that on top of the wheat tortilla - so it had two layers of cheese mix and three of the bread (see pic). I also added chopped tomatoes and onions seasoned with basil to the dish, which really made the dish more flavorful and kept the herbed goat cheese from overpowering everything. Again, we all loved this. I made it for the family but it'd make an excellent dish for a party.

Lori's Famous Crab Cakes

Reviewed: Jan. 4, 2010
My family loved them. They were very easy to make and I received no complaints whatsoever. I fried them up with some sweet plantains. I didn't eat any myself because I prefer more bready crabcakes where I don't taste the crabmeat as much. Next time I'll make a few of these with less crabmeat just for me.

Appleless Apple Pie

Reviewed: Dec. 26, 2009
I made this for Thanksgiving last year. I followed the recipe but this was awful. Tasted like crackers boiled in sugar water. I was going to serve it to my guests, but let's just say it never made it to the table. On the plus side, it was a beautiful pie to look at out of the oven. So pretty I took a few pics of it. I'll have to post one once I find them.

Barbeque Beef Casserole

Reviewed: Dec. 26, 2009
My family watched in horror as my elderly grandfather licked his plate clean - he loved it that much. I made it for Christmas and everyone quickly ate it all. When my mother was cleaning out the dish she told me I had to make it again next week for New Year's - ugh! I listened to other reviewers who said three boxes of cornbread was too much, but I disagree. Everyone's plate had more meat than bread, so next time I'm using all three boxes. The one reviewer who suggested adding black-eyed peas had the best idea. The black-eyed peas were an excellent addition and made the dish pop. This was overall a very tasty casserole, however, we felt it needed some heat. I don't like spicy dishes but this casserole was very sweet to us so next time I'll be adding a dash of cayenne pepper to balance it all out. Excellent, easy meal for the whole family.
