1-Pot, 3-Bean Chicken Stew

Reviewed: Jun. 7, 2010
I did not care for this recipe. For 8 servings there sure is more than enough beans and tomatoes, but no real flavor. I won't make again.

Deep Fried Black Eyed Peas

Reviewed: Jun. 7, 2010
I was not impressed. What an oily mess and a terrible jolt to ones system (meaning your body). And one does what, with these fried things? Yes I fried them as the recipe called for and it looked just like the picture, but please...popcorn would have been better.

Quick and Easy Alfredo Sauce

Reviewed: Apr. 20, 2011
Made this for Olive Garden's Chicken Alfredo Pizza (found in an old Woman's Day magazine) and I had no alfredo sauce. Very good! I have leftover sauce to make a pasta dish tomorrow! Thanks for a "keeper" of a recipe!

Grandma's Corn Chowder

Reviewed: Oct. 28, 2011
Good quick recipe. I changed the servings to 2, didn't have bacon, but had two slices of prosciutto whick I chopped and fried as bacon. Didn't have creamed corn, but frozen corn worked well. Used half & half and about 1 TBLS butter and mashed the potatoes a little to thicken slightly. Also added some nutmeg (fresh grated) at the end-just a touch. Very good despite not having the exact ingredients. This was a really quick homemade chowder and I will make again!

Chinese Chicken Fried Rice II

Reviewed: Jan. 25, 2012
Great recipe! I added 1/2 c. peas, 1/3 c. chopped carrot, 1/2 c. bean sprouts and 3/4 c. chicken. Also I bumped the butter up to 2 TBLS adding one into pan with oil when sauteing the onions and carrots. I probably had about 3 cups of rice from 3 days ago so my rice was a little bit more, but that was ok since I had all the other veggies. Turned out really good. Thanks for sharing your recipe!

Caramelized Spicy Pumpkin Seeds

Reviewed: Dec. 9, 2012
I made this three times this fall!! First I think my pumpkin seeds actually measured 2 1/2 cups, and I soaked them in heavy salt water 24 hours. Make sure you allow the seeds to DRY! I did change the baking time to about an hour as I like mine really toasted! Two of the times I changed the sugar to dark brown sugar (just the sugar you caramelize) Plus adding 2 tbls olive oil and 1 tbls butter to the pan. You have to stir this constantly and just when everything is coated get it into the other sugar. When I made this per directions it was just as good! I did what others said with the cayenne by making it a 1/4 tsp. I'm told to keep making it this way!! Thanks for the recipe!!

Cheesy Chicken Meatballs

Reviewed: Aug. 18, 2013
This was a good way to use ground chicken but mine turned out more like a stuffing drop biscuits, probably because following the directions left it extremely runny so I ended up adding about 1 cup fresh bread crumbs to get something to work with. Forget about trying to make a regular meatball with your hands, use two spoons and do the drop biscuit way. Make sure you spray your foil very well. I had to make a chicken cream soup sauce (1 can cream of chicken + 1/3 c liquid) to dip them in. I took others advice and only added 1 tsp garlic powder which to me, still seemed like too much. I like spicy food but 1 tsp red pepper flakes is too much. Next time I will cut that back to 1/2 tsp. I actually think they would be great in a chicken soup as dumplings! Thanks for sharing your recipe!

Fast Rice Pudding

Reviewed: Sep. 3, 2013
This was very good and easy! I did not use a TBLS of cinnamon only 1 tsp and I did add 1 tsp vanilla at the end. No problems with the time as every stove is different, after it was boiling it was reduced to low and covered, about 5-9 minutes, stirring every couple of minutes. I used long grain rice which was a few days old in the refrigerator and it made 5 little dessert cups. This was a great way to make use of leftovers with very few ingredients. I am keeping this one! Thanks for the recipe!
