Margaret's Southern Chocolate Pie

Reviewed: Aug. 17, 2002
Bullseye! This is a fantastic recipe. The chocolate and sweetness are perfectly balanced. Lumps have always been a major problem with my chocolate pies. Some tips I used to avoid unsightly lumpiness (which is inevitable with recipes like this) was to sift the dry ingredients together, stir the liquid mixture constantly and then strain out smaller lumps as it begins to thicken on the stove. The egg proteins will cause some lumps as they cook -- and espcially as you scrape the bottom of the sauce pan with the flat bottom spoon. Fortunately, they smooth right out after adding the butter with a little help from the handheld mixer. My end result was a perfectly firm, but creamy smooth texture and a delicious flavor. Thanks for submitting this recipe. Reminds me of Mom's chocolate pie.

Baked Pork Chops I

Reviewed: Dec. 15, 2013
I didn't make the soup sauce, but did everything else according to the recipe. These turned out to make very good oven "fried" chops. My gang loved them. Even my picky 12 year old devoured it. Will hang on to this recipe.

Yellow Squash Casserole

Reviewed: Dec. 15, 2013
Good recipe. I asked for squash from the grocery store, but my shopper didn't quite get enough for the crowd I had to feed. This recipe came in handy. Of course, I added extra cheese and a little Parmesan. This recipe is a keeper.

Charleston Breakfast Casserole

Reviewed: Feb. 19, 2007
I'm Scott M. (Now Scottley), and I'm glad so many of you like this recipe. I'm especially proud that many of you make this as a holiday dish because it's perfect for just such events. And with Christmas just around the corner, I hope many more of you will try this recipe. It lends itself well to breakfast, brunch, lunch or even dinner. If bacon isn't your thing, try it with country ham, your favorite sausage, shrimp, or even smoked salmon layered-in for an unexpected surprise. Served with crispy pan-seared hashbrowns, some fresh fruit, and a flute of mimosa (or OJ and giner ale for the little ones), it might make you a rock star in your own kitchen.

Russian Mushroom and Potato Soup

Reviewed: Feb. 6, 2007
Wow! My roommate doesn't care for most soups, but she literally couldn't believe I made this from scratch. This was awesome!

Easy Alfredo Sauce II

Reviewed: Nov. 4, 2006
I was really skeptical about this. Especially since I was using this as a last minute dinner idea for a date. But it was really good. Even my rommate had second helpings the next day -- and she never does that! Goes great with the grilled chicken, broccoli (or spinach), and penne dish I use it for. Definitely a keeper.

Strawberry Cake and Frosting II

Reviewed: Feb. 28, 2004
My niece's mother-in-law made this cake at Christmas where I tasted it for the first time. I honestly think it just may be the best cake I've ever had. Her recipe is ever so slightly different in that she uses just plain whole milk instead of condensed milk, but they are essentially the same aside from that. I'm making one today and can't wait for dessert this evening after dinner. If you like strawberries, you'll ~love~ this cake.

Easy Fruit Cobbler

Reviewed: Feb. 15, 2004
I made this with really lousy peaches (They were the only ones available so I added 1/4 cup of sugar to them after slicing them and let them "steep" for a while.) But the cobbler was still very good despite the substandard peaches. Even my super-picky other-half enjoyed it about it and went for more the next day -- which NEVER happens. Tonight I'm trying it with a canned cherry pie filling and I'm going to experiment with a butter, flour, and sugar crumb topping.

Best Big, Fat, Chewy Chocolate Chip Cookie

Reviewed: Nov. 12, 2003
Definitely a hit! Makes the prettiest cookies I've ever made -- and tastey too. I used a small spring-loaded ice cream scooper to make uniformly sized cookies and gave them p-l-e-n-t-y of room on the cookie sheets. Avoid the temptation to leave them in the oven a few extra minutes though. I didn't think my first batch looked done so I let them bake a few extra minutes, but they turned out a little too crunchy. 15 minutes was perfect (for my oven anyway). My picky gang was very impressed.

Garlic Cheese Biscuits

Reviewed: Nov. 1, 2002
I had to practice a couple of times to get the baking temp and time just right for my tempramental oven (I call it Chernobyl), but once I hit upon the right combination, I was blown away with these tasty little jewels. Now if I can just find Red Lobster's stuffed mushroom appetizer recipe, I'll be all set.

Wedding Cake Icing

Reviewed: Nov. 1, 2002
Awesome, awesome, awesome! I've used this recipe for a lot of different baked goods requiring icing. It has a fantastic texture, is very easy to work with, spreads out to a satiny smoothness with an offset spatula dipped in hot water, and can be very versatile with a few drops of your favorite extract added. Definitely a keeper!

Healthier Grandmother's Buttermilk Cornbread

Reviewed: Aug. 21, 2013
My family prefers more savory cornbread so I only added a healthy dash of sugar and I don't think it could have turn out any better. I was worried that I used instant homemade buttermilk (whole milk and vinegar) would make them taste weird or too dry, but it turned out delicious and stayed moist. I've already been recruited to make this recipe to use for the Thanksgiving dressing. I'm really looking forward to that!
