Southern Fried Chicken

Reviewed: Feb. 3, 2007
Beautiful! Beautiful! Beautiful! The chicken came out crisp and golden, while remaining wonderfully moist! The smells alone drew my teenage brothers away from the video games! (A magical feat as far as I'm concerned.) I too was always intimdated by frying chicken. My oil was always too hot and my batter never stuck. I always rinsed the chicken in water then just rolled it in flour. This time I took another reviewer's suggestion and did an egg wash. Amazing! Overall everything was to die for and I will DEFINATELY be using this recipe again! I used boneless skinless breast instead of boned chicken and took the advice of another reviewer and added 1 tsp. of garlic powder and 1 tsp. of onion powder. Thumbs WAY up on this one! Thanks to the poster and helpful reviewers!

In-a-Pinch Ketchup

Reviewed: May 29, 2008
I've been developing a BBQ sauce that meets all my needs and I finally nailed the formula, which starts with a ketchup base. But I think store bought ketchup is disgusting and wanted something homemade. This was PERFECT! It was the perfect base so all I had to do was add my secret ingredients. It made my sauce taste even better than it already did. I'm going to use this as a regular ketchup as well. A little tip; Instead of letting it cook for just an hour I put it in my small crockpot and let it sit on low all day. YUM! Thank you for this GREAT recipe! :)

Slow-Cooked Chili

Reviewed: Oct. 30, 2007
Tasty! I used almost three pounds of ground beef, no green pepper (didn't have one)and no canned diced tomato (we don't care for tomato chunks in chili). And it still turned out good! I didn't have any tomato sauce either so I used two 6 oz cans of tomato paste mixed with two cans of water and that did the trick! And I only used half of a large onion instead of two medium onions. There were no leftovers, which leaves me singing the praises of this dish! :)

Banana Banana Strawberry Smoothie

Reviewed: Aug. 8, 2008
This was my first attempt ever at making a smoothie, and this was the PERFECT recipe! The only problem was I didn't have any banana extract so I just used two bananas. I also followed the suggestion of another reviewer and added ice, but at 1 1/2 cups. I also left out the sugar as it was plenty sweet enough. Even the non-banana people in my house RAVED about this recipe! Thanks so much!

Mother's Ham Casserole

Reviewed: Jul. 12, 2007
Excellent! I only made a few changes. First of all I changed the recipe to accomodate 10 people. I also omitted the green pepper (not a favorite in our house). It then begged for something green so I sprinkled dried chives over the ham, potato, and sauce mixture and stirred it in. Also instead of bread crumbs I took a box of herb flavored Stove Top Stuffing and added just enough water to moisten it so that it was sprinkle-able (is that a word?LOL) and tender. I then baked as the recipe stated and just put the oven on broil for about 3 minutes to crisp the top! Tasty!

Ham, Potato, and Cheese Soup

Reviewed: Jan. 24, 2007
YUM! I used 8 potatos (we love our taters), 1/2 lb of Velveeta, 6 cups of water, and 1/2 lb of ham. I didn't make the flour paste. Once I mashed about half of the potato mixture it became thick enough for my taste. I also added oregano for color and taste. It certainly was YUM! though not much different from any other potato soup I've made.

Tom's Blackened Seasoning

Reviewed: May 11, 2008
I'm only giving this one two stars because its basically the same rub as the one used for Herb Rubbed Sirloin Tip Roast. It was good, but tasted the same, even with the difference of nutmeg, sugar, and cumin. Those are some expensive spices! The amounts vary between the recipes, obviously, because one is meant for a single roast and the other is meant to be stored. Save yourself the trouble and costs of extra ingredients and stick to the Sirloin rub.

Chicken Broth in a Slow Cooker

Reviewed: Oct. 2, 2007
I've never made my own chicken broth before, but after looking at what goes into a bullion cube or canned broth I decided to give it a try. I was quite pleased. I did make some changes. I used a left-over roasted chicken carcass and switched the 1 tbs of basil to 1 heaping tbs of parsley and did 7 instead of 6 cups of water. Cooked it on Low overnight for about 10 hours and disposed of all the vegetables and the carcass. It came out richly colored and tasted pretty good. And it smelled WONDERFUL cooking. I'm waiting for it to cool a bit then I plan to divy it up into 1 3/4 servings and freeze in freezer bags. No more bullion for me!

Beef Stew VI

Reviewed: Feb. 14, 2007
Great Stuff! Very much like my grandmother's recipe, though she's been known to just peel her carrots and potatoes then slice them in half and throw everything in the pot that way! I love stew done like that but it takes awhile to cook! But this was much quicker--even with all the chopping! I followed the concept of this recipe. Same ingredients same steps, but like so many I modified it to suit personal taste. Basically I reduced the meat (I only had less than a pound in the freezer)and I dredged it in flour mixed with onion powder before browning. I upped the carrots and potatoes, but not the celery or onion. I reduced both of these by half. I used italian seasoning instead of rosemary (all out!), but kept the parsley and pepper. I used all four boullion cubes and about six cups of water. (I think this kept the salty boullion from overpowering everything and was necessary after I upped the veggies. I ended up having more like 12 servings than 10.) And lastly I combined flour and some more water into an old pickle jar and gave it a few good shakes until it was blended and used this as my thickening. I paired the stew with the Double Quick Dinner Rolls from this site and I had to stop teenage boys from licking the laddle!

Dilly Chicken Sandwiches

Reviewed: Feb. 1, 2008
I was looking for something to cure winter food blahs and this did the trick and then some! It was wonderful! The whole family loved it and declared that it was better than any fast food chicken sandwich they had ever tried. A keeper for sure! Five stars doesn't even begin to cover how good it was. We have two in our family who aren't fond of cream cheese so instead of serving the sandwiches already done up I spread everything out buffet style and let everyone do their own. One of my crew chose to use mayo instead of the spread and said it tasted just fine. The cream cheese is what makes it, though! No complaints from this cook! Thank you for such a great contribution! :)Update: This also works great to cook and put in the fridge to use for a cold chicken sandwich in a lunchbox! Just put the breast in a container, wrap up an untoasted bun, send along some lettuce and tomato in a baggie, and a small jar of the sauce (or mayo) and taa-da LUNCH! :)

Egg Noodles

Reviewed: Oct. 2, 2007
First time making egg noodles though I have made various other types of pasta in the past. This recipe is tasty for sure. I had a problem with thickness despite the fact that I rolled it as thin as I could without it getting transparent. I didn't dry them either. I just dropped them into a pot of boiling water and fished them out. Then I stored them in the fridge for dinner later tonight. They DO roll out heavenly and are indeed tasty!

Double Quick Dinner Rolls

Reviewed: Feb. 14, 2007
Easy, delicious, and pleasing to the eye! I loved the ease of this recipe! As one reviewer pointed out, any who find this difficult must not be familiar with "normal" preparation of yeast breads. The only thing I did differently was I added a few shakes of garlic powder and a pinch of dried Greek oregano along with the onion powder. The family and I split two right out of the oven! I'm not much for using potato flakes in any fashion but I was wonderfully surprised at these results! And they photographed beautifully as well! Thank you SO MUCH Marian!

Creamy Pimento Cheese

Reviewed: Nov. 23, 2010
This is sooooooo good! Pure comfort food. I accidentally added onion powder instead of garlic power but it turned out fine. The tip about using the liquid from the pimentos was a good one, but in addition to some of the pimento liquid I added a dash of liquid smoke for that smoked cheddar flavor along with some chipotle chile pepper powder for zing. I'll use this again and again! I'm Looking very forward to trying it on whole grain crackers.

Baked Potato Casserole

Reviewed: May 15, 2008
This was certainly worth fixing, but as usual I made a few changes. I cubed and boiled my red potatos with the chopped onion. I replaced the ham with bacon (and left out the salt), and instead of using just mayo to go with the sour cream I used half mayo and half ranch dressing. Also a baked potato taste isn't complete without butter so before mixing the sour cream/mayo/dressing in I tossed the cubed cooked potatoes with melted butter. I also cut WAY back on the cheese. 8 cups is just too much. I also mixed in quite a bit more black pepper and added dried greek oregano. Once it came out of the oven I sprinkled cooked crumbled bacon, chopped green onions, and shredded cheddar over the top. This one will go in my box of last minute "emergency" recipes! Good stuff!

Bacon Waffles

Reviewed: May 11, 2008
I'm not sure what possessed me to try such a thing. Why ruin waffles with bacon? Not something I'll try again. Sorry.

Roasted New Red Potatoes

Reviewed: May 6, 2008
These were great! Olive oil is too expensive for our budget right now so I just melted a stick of unsalted REAL butter in a bowl and coated the potatoes with it. It worked just fine. I also quartered the potatoes to make for easier serving and eating. And my oven never would crisp them so I had to turn it to broil and stir the potatoes every few minutes. It worked like a charm. Don't skip the sea salt, 'tis what makes 'em! :)

Sweet and Tangy BBQ Sauce

Reviewed: Mar. 26, 2009
I needed a quick BBQ sauce (out of ingredients to make my normal) and found this. I only had one problem. I halved the recipe from its original 24 to 12, and added ketchup and seasonings accordingly but goofed and left my liquid amounts as the original stated! No matter, still came out great. I was also out of a few things and had to sub onion powder for the onion, left out the butter naturally, and used about 1/8 a cup of steak sauce in place of the Worcestershire sauce. Excellent stuff and I can't wait to try it as written. The only thing I might add next time is a bit of liquid smoke.

Nanny's Spaghetti Sauce

Reviewed: Jan. 13, 2009
This stuff is SO good! I didn't have crushed tomatoes so I used two 14.5 oz cans of diced, flavored with balsamic vinegar and olive oil. And since I cooked this all day in the slow cooker they broke down and I was able to smash them with a potato masher. Thus I ended up with a slighty chunky but not too chunky lovely thick sauce. I also added basil, used white vinegar in place of the red (that was all I had) and some onion powder. I can't wait to experiment with this! Wonderful! Wonderful! Wonderful!

Juicy Roasted Chicken

Reviewed: Jun. 17, 2008
Well this certainly was simple! And it surely was wonderful! So it must have been Simply Wonderful!;) Great taste, great presentation, great everything! The only changes I made were minor. I rubbed a ton of REAL butter on the exterior (as well as under the skin)of the bird then also sprinkled garlic powder with the onion powder. I also stuffed a few carrots in the cavity with the celery. Next time I'll try adding fresh onion and fresh garlic in the cavity as well. Maybe even a lemon! The leftover carcass (not that there was much meat left) is also headed right for the crockpot to make Slow Cooker Chicken Broth also found on this site. Thanks for this great contribution! :)

Slow Cooker Garlic Mashed Potatoes

Reviewed: May 26, 2008
This got rave reviews from the whole family, and was a perfect match to our grilled steaks and roasted corn on the cob for Memorial Day. You rarely read such a thing for a suggestion but make sure your black pepper is OLD! We use a fresher pepper than can be found in grocery store spice aisles and 1/4 tsp was jsut WAY too much! Had I been thinking I would have reduced it. But that was MY fault not the recipe's :). As far as changes go I used minced fresh garlic instead of garlic powder. The leftovers (what few there were) were great fried the next morning at breakfast. Thumbs up on this one!
