Country Fried Steak and Milk Gravy

Reviewed: Mar. 15, 2010
Made this tonight. Excellent!! Doubled the gravy used half milk and half homemade beef stock, and used a combo of olive oil and veggie oil. Sorry but I won't use lard for anything, just can't bring myself to do it. Very good recipe, thank you for sharing it!

Sweet and Sour Meatballs

Reviewed: Mar. 11, 2010
Thought it was just fine. Went over big with the family. Served over egg noodles. Just an FYI, don't get a generic chili sauce, get a good brand. The junk I got from china-mart had so much vinegar in it, it just threw off the whole thing, had to tweak a little to cut that tang. I did prebrown the meatballs to give a good deep flavor and I did saute the onions to get a good flavor out of them. I will be making this again. Thank you Tammy for sharing.

Best Ever Pie Crust

Reviewed: Oct. 29, 2006
I must have done something horridly wrong with this recipe. All I got was goo. I tried it in the food processor, after just two pulses and no water added it was goo. I tried it by hand and it came out goo. I did not add the full amount of water. The second try I added much more flour and finally was able to get it rolled out, it would not come free of either wax paper or plastic wrap. I just pieced it together the best I could. I rechecked the amounts for flour and shortening thinking I had read something wrong but that wasn't the case. Shortening was chilled and I used ice water. I'm giving the recipe three stars, I'm sure it's a fine recipe. I just wish I could figure out what I did wrong with it.

Fried Frog Legs with Creamy Onion-Mushroom Gravy

Reviewed: Nov. 4, 2003
I really liked this recipe! The breading was great but did tend to fall apart. I think next time and there will be a next time, I will use the old tried and true method of dredge, egg, then crumb and I also think I'll do a deep fry number on them. The gravy was just to die for, my son, the little picky thing, just loved it! I used a little more butter in it and I used cornstarch to thicken instead of the flour. It really is a great recipe. Thanks Linda for sharing.

Slow Cooker Lasagna

Reviewed: Jun. 21, 2003
We really enjoyed this!! I did some playing around with it as others have. Replaced the cottage cheese with Ricotta and I used more tomato sauce and paste to make more of the sauce as I have one of the old crockpots that's just huge. I also put in some Italian seasoning and some roasted garlic. Just make sure that all your noodles are covered with the sauce and it will come out just great. The time was a little different for me too. It only took about 4 1/2 to 5 hours in my pot, but you have to remember that all crockpots are not the same, the size and shape can change the timing a great deal. I've made this twice now and it has come out wonderful both times. I serve it with Mama D's Italian bread (from this site) and a salad and what a meal!! Thanks Kim for a great way to make homemade lasagna without all the fuss!

Focaccia Bread

Reviewed: Nov. 17, 2002
Just wonderful!! Everyone loves it. I make two and freeze one to have on hand. This is a real keeper! Feb. 2010, I've been making this since I found it in 2001. Just nothing better out there than this recipe. So much you can do with it. As others have I've upped the salt and for me I have taken out the vegetable oil all together and just used a good olive oil for the whole thing. I use fresh herbs when I can or an Italian blend. I read a review about using milk instead of water, think I'll give that a try and see what happens. I've used any and all cheeses, whatever is on hand. What must be remembered is that this is a bread not a pizza (unless you are making it as a pizza) so go light on toppings, you want the wonderful flavor of the bread to come through.

Old Plantation Rolls

Reviewed: Nov. 17, 2002
Wonderful rolls! I've made this recipe twice now and each time the rolls came out just great. I had to use a bit more flour but I really think that had to do with the weather on the days I made them. Really a keeper.

Bacon Dumplings

Reviewed: Nov. 4, 2002
These were just great!! I used them for chicken and dumplings. My hubby who doesn't like dumplings at all ate 4 of them!! I did do a little playing with the recipe. I doubled the amount of bacon and instead of parsley I used an italian seasoning blend. I plan on making these at least once a week or so.

Rich and Simple French Onion Soup

Reviewed: Nov. 4, 2001
Wonderful, Wonderful! I ate this and then used it again to make the Salisbury Steak recipe here on the site. Just an awesome soup! I added just a hint of garlic to it too. Never knew onion soup could be so easy! Can't wait for Viadalia season here again, can you imagine this made with those onions? Just heaven. Thanks for sharing!

Salisbury Steak

Reviewed: Nov. 4, 2001
Awesome recipe! I didn't have any canned onion soup so I made some from a recipe here on the site, Rich and Simple French Onion Soup. I used it to make this recipe. Wonderful! No leftovers, everyone cleaned their plate. The sauce is habit forming. I will be making this a lot. Thanks for sharing it. Feb. 2010 made this for the umpteenth time, just incredible. Made my own soup again too. Everyone cleaned their plates, even the Greys! Yes, African Grey Parrots eat people food. Doubled the sauce as always, but do not double the ketchup. Some tomato is needed in beef dishes, brings out the flavors and makes them richer but don't overdo it. Used some thyme and sage, just 1/4 tsp. each, went really lite on the salt, it can get very salty very fast so watch it. If you must use bouillon cubes don't add any other salt at all. One clove of garlic in with the onion soup. Really no other major adjustments. Mashed taters, green beans and homemade rolls, just doesn't get any better.

Fried Rice II

Reviewed: Nov. 4, 2001
Just loved this! I kept finding things to add in. Minced pickled ginger,fresh garlic,bell pepper,carrot,last of the fresh peas from the garden. I did leave out the sprouts, just didn't have any on hand. I used leftover sushi rice too. I served it with Simple Stir Fry over it and even my picky picky kid ate it right up! Thanks for sharing this!

Navajo Fry Bread II

Reviewed: Nov. 3, 2001
Way too much salt! Cut it down and you will get a wonderful fry bread and you can use it for anything. I'll be making it again.

Beer Batter for Fish

Reviewed: Nov. 3, 2001
Execellent recipe! I didn't have pastry flour so used all purpose with extra cornstarch. It was just a bit on the thick side so I added a little more milk. Easy to whip up, the batter was smooth and the fish looked like something you would get in a fish house. Beautiful and golden on the outside and moist and flakey on the inside. A real keeper.

Honey Roasted Red Potatoes

Reviewed: Nov. 3, 2001
Real good flavor! I was very generous with the honey and butter and mustard and it just came out great. I also tossed the potatoes in the sauce instead of pouring it over them. Came out very good. I'll make them again at christmas.

Baked Slow Cooker Chicken

Reviewed: Nov. 3, 2001
We didn't care for this recipe at all. The chicken was tender but even with the addition of spices and seasoning salt as others had suggested it was not very good. I ended up throwing most of it away which was a shame and a waste. I won't make it again.

Honey Baked Chicken II

Reviewed: Oct. 30, 2001
Absolutely Wonderful!!! I used dijon mustard instead of the curry and regular mustard. I also used half the butter. Instead of basting I turned the chicken about every 20 minutes or so. There are only three of us and we cleaned up an entire chicken! That's how good it was,not a scrap was left. I'll be making this at least once a week and maybe more often. Next time I'll do two chickens. You must try this!
