World's Best Lasagna

Reviewed: Dec. 26, 2014
Wow. I don't know if its the WORLD"S best lasagna but it comes awfully close!! Only change I made was cutting back on the salt in the sauce (1 tablespoon is a lot of salt, I used scant 2 teaspoons) and then added about a half a cup of dry red wine. My husband declared it the best sauce he's ever had. After finishing the recipe as written, the only change I would make next time is to double the ricotta/egg mixture as it seems a little "skimpy" for such a hearty sauce. Oh, BTW, didn't cook my noodles. Soaked them for about 15-20 minutes and they came out perfectly. And don't do it more than 20. Was on the phone talking to my son and left them for 30 or so and ended up with this slimy, unusable mess, lol. Luckily I had more noodles :-)

Brussels Sprouts in a Sherry Bacon Cream Sauce

Reviewed: Dec. 26, 2014
Decided on this recipe since my oven was already taken up with a roast. I soaked, seasoned and roasted the sprouts earlier in the afternoon then about 20 minutes prior to dinner, started the sauce, reheating the pre-roasted sprouts in the pan. Wow, what a wonderful way to serve sprouts!! I left out the mushrooms as we were having mushrooms as a side dish and unfortunately the sherry I though I had was marsala wine but even my Brussel sprout hating daughter ("I though you loved us!" she said when I told her this was on the menu, lol!) ended up going back for a second helping. Perfect side dish that impresses!!!

Chef John's Perfect Prime Rib

Reviewed: Dec. 26, 2014
After much debating with myself, I decided to give this recipe a try for our Christmas Eve dinner. I took it out of the fridge for about six hours prior to cooking, rubbed it with seasoned butter (thyme, basil and a bit of garlic) and stuck it in my preheated 500 degree oven. When I took it out after the two hour resting, It was cooked almost to perfection but....it was just about cold. The au jus I made with it heated it up a bit but really missed that nice warm piece of beefy goodness that a prime rib offers. Next time I'll go back to the Foolproof Rib Roast recipe on this site or, better yet, invest in a good remote thermometer so its cooked to perfection.

Snow Cone Syrup II

Reviewed: Jul. 6, 2014
This is the perfect recipe to make syrup for Italian sodas!! Make it up, store in fridge and mix with club soda for a perfect, light drink!! Nice way to control the sweetness and if you're looking for more "adult" flavors, head to your local Mexican grocery store where they have pineapple, mango and hibiscus flavored drink mixes. Yum!!

Terri's Sloppy Joes

Reviewed: Jul. 6, 2014
This was a hard sell in our house. My husband and I have used Manwich for years but my daughter told me that they never use the stuff, only use this recipe. So went ahead and made it, even with my husband balking the entire way....until he tasted it. Take one more convenience food off our list!! This was perfect and haven't bought the canned stuff since!!

Pasta Salad with Homemade Dressing

Reviewed: Jul. 6, 2014
Yum, yum, YUM!! Made this as a side dish for my homemade pizza (which is pretty darned good!) and everybody ate more of the salad than they did my pizza!! Made the dressing first so it could blend flavors a bit, using just a touch of sugar to mellow it out a bit (maybe 1/2 teaspoon), used mini bowties for the pasta and the only real change I made was to nix the bell pepper and use an anaheim as I like the milder flavor better. Seriously, it is the BEST pasta salad I've had. Major epiphany for me was to just go the the deli section of the supermarket and ask for a small slab of the meat and cheese instead of buying a whole sausage. Came to a little over a dollar a piece for all three. Will definitely do that again, too!!

Southern Dill Potato Salad

Reviewed: Jul. 6, 2014
Wow. I think the exchange went like this. Me: This might be the best potato salad I've ever made. Hubby: This might be the best potato salad I've ever HAD!! Yeah, its that good. Only made a couple changes. First, no celery but did use celery seed. Second, used dill pickle juice instead of the vinegar (I wanted it really "dilly" and might have used a bit more than the recipe) and sprinkled it over the warm, cubed potatoes so they could absorb the flavor. Lastly, had fresh dill in the garden so used about half fresh and half dried (and maybe a little more than the recipe called for. OMG. This will now be my "go to" recipe for potato salad. Just about perfect in every way.

Outrageous Chocolate Chip Cookies

Reviewed: Mar. 30, 2014
I was looking for a quick cookie to throw together but didn't want one that was overly "greasy", something that was a bit more substantial. THIS IS IT!! Goes together in no time, used a good size scoop to measure them out and then flattened them slightly with a fork before baking. Due to making them a bit bigger (about 2 1/2" across), I had to bake them 12-13 minutes. Perfection!! They don't spread out much, have a wonderful flavor and a perfect crispiness yet still chewy. These will now be my "go to" cookie!!

Jesse's Ginger Salad Dressing

Reviewed: Jan. 5, 2014
I'm not a fan of changing recipes then reviewing them, especially since I gave it five stars but this is a very good recipe, just needed a little extra. Used fresh ginger instead of powdered and added rice vinegar (a good tablespoon or so) and a dash of sesame oil. WOW!! What a great dressing!! Used it on fresh spinach and it was perfect!! The flavors are identical to the restaurant type but since its mayo based, stays creamy. This will definitely be one of my "go to" dressings!!

Slow Cooker Beef Stroganoff I

Reviewed: Oct. 31, 2013
Made this last night for dinner and loved it! I did make it with chicken as that's all I had, added a can of mushrooms and a bit of seasoning (salt, pepper, thyme and garlic) and it was delicious! Can't wait to try it again with beef!

Brownie Frosting

Reviewed: Sep. 24, 2013
Wowzers! Can it get any easier?? I made a half batch for a homemade brownie recipe. Things learned? I'd use whole milk next time instead of skim, although not sure if that would make it more rich. Also, pour it in the middle of the pan RIGHT AWAY!! This baby hardens up as soon as it hits the brownies, even if the brownies are still warm. And last, make it over and over!! Seriously made a great brownie recipe BETTER!! A new family favorite!!

Microwave Corn on the Cob

Reviewed: Jul. 30, 2013
Wowzers. I'm sold. I usually cook my corn in my electric pressure cooker so the kitchen doesn't heat up but this is pure genius!! And DELICIOUS!! I cut two ears in half, wrapped each in dry paper towel and then ran them quickly under water to wet the paper towel. Four minutes total in the microwave on high and pure perfection!! Ate two and the remaining two were still hot when we went to butter them. I'm literally stopping people in the hall at work and telling them about this. THANK YOU!!!

Sopapilla Cheesecake Pie

Reviewed: May 17, 2013
Well, the reviews were right!! We had a Mexican themed pot luck at work today so I made this. Followed others suggestions and cut back the sugar and butter in the topping (5 T butter, 1/2 cup sugar) but pretty much stuck to the recipe. I've never been asked for a recipe so much!! And it was the only dessert that was completely gone before the lunch was over! Definitely a winner!! And to think you can easily halve the recipe for a smaller crowd?? Bonus!!

Microwave Lemon Curd

Reviewed: May 11, 2013
Holy cow!! I'm in love!! I was so intrigued by this recipe I started mixing the egg and sugar (adjusting for a third of a recipe) and realized I only have limes. Go for it, my hubby said!! So juiced and zested the limes. Since it was a smaller amount, stirred every 30 seconds instead of every 60 seconds. In two minutes it was done! I seriously went into the fridge a couple times last night just to dip a spoon into it and eat it, lol!! Going to make some quick tart shells today and top with a bit whipped cream for an easy but impressive dessert. Yes, the zest does give it some texture but does it look beautiful in the glass jar!! This might be the best recipe on this site!!

Creamed Salmon on Toast

Reviewed: Mar. 29, 2013
Wow, I was so skeptical about this recipe but could not have enjoyed it more!! I did change it a bit, using a white sauce mix (Pioneer, I think) so it had a bit of seasoning and pepper in it and also cut back the fat a LOT. Then had a hefty cup of leftover frozen peas from the night before and used them instead of canned but boy howdy!! Was it ever good for something SO simple!! We served it over mashed potatoes for dinner and then had leftovers on toast for lunch the next day and both were equally satisfying!! Such a nice easy way to add fish to our diet!! Thanks for puttint it out there!!

Slow Cooker Oats

Reviewed: Sep. 25, 2012
Holy buckets!! If I could give this recipe more stars, I would!! Just bought a 1.5 quart crock pot for our camper and saw this recipe and gave it a try. I was a little worried as crock pots vary from brand to brand, size to size and this came out PERFECT!! Followed the recipe almost to a "t", adding a little bit more brown sugar, dried cranberries instead of raisins and added some chopped pecans for crunch. Woke up the next morning to a bubbling crock of deliciousness!! WAY better than any instant/stove top/microwave I have ever tried. I'm already thinking about new combinations of dried fruits and nuts! WELL worth getting the bag of steel cut oats for. Heck, get the new little crock pot for this one!! SO glad I did!!

Crescent Pizza Pinwheels

Reviewed: Dec. 19, 2011
Made these last year for a Christmas Eve buffet and they were a HUGE hit!! Made some with green pepper and some without and both were gone as soon as I took them out of the oven. All the flavor of pizza rolls but SO much more elegant!!

Happy Shrimp

Reviewed: Nov. 23, 2011
Absolutely LOVE this recipe!! Only used 1/2 pound of shrimp and 2 TBLS of butter but kept everything else the same so there would be enough sauce for the two of us. Used half and half instead of cream but ended up throwing in a bit more at the end. SHEER GENIUS to cook the shrimp and then take it out of the pan as the sauce cooks. Ended up tasting better than most restaurant dishes I've had!! Definitely worth making again and again! (Oh, and quick, too!)

Sweet, Sticky and Spicy Chicken

Reviewed: Jan. 30, 2011
Very good recipe and very simple!! Changes I made: Coated the chicken pieces in a tablespoon of flour along with a bit of salt and pepper. I think this helped thicken the sauce a bit, too. Doubled all the sauce amounts except the hot sauce (we used 1 heaping tablespoon of Chinese chili bean paste). Next time, I will use only 1/4 cup soy and 1/4 cup either water or sake, as 1/2 cup of soy sauce made it a tad salty. Other than that, made it exactly as written and it was awesome! Perfectly spicy, nice and sticky. Already planning to make it again! Simpler than a lot of mixes!!

Italian Beef in a Bucket

Reviewed: Jan. 18, 2011
Holy buckets!! This recipe was AMAZING!! I did skip the pickled mixed veggies and instead of whole jare of whole peppers, used half a jar of the shredded (with half the juice in the jar) and cooked it on high for 6 hours. Served it on hoagies with provolone cheese and it was outstanding!! Will SO make this again!!
