Bill's Sausage Gravy

Reviewed: Jun. 21, 2014
This is a good basic recipe for sausage gravy. I saute some chopped onion and bell pepper with the sausage. Use the spicy sausage or add crushed red pepper for a bit of a kick. Also I add a little shredded sharp cheddar after gravy is thickened once in awhile just for a change up. My greatgrandaughter loves this and she's only 4.

Roasted Greek Chicken

Reviewed: Jun. 7, 2014
I have been making this for years. This is a family favorite. I also add potatoes cut into wedges with the chicken to cook. Make a nice salad to complete the meal. You can't go wrong with this recipe.

Banana Sour Cream Bread

Reviewed: Jun. 2, 2014
This banana bread is simply the best. It is so moist and flavorful it reminded me of my grandma's. As I am diabetic I substituted half of the sugar with Splenda® and half with dark brown sugar. I think I will cut the total sugar amount down to 2 cups as it was plenty sweet. I did increase the baking temperature to 325 as suggested by other reviewers, and it came out perfect though it did take a bit longer than stated. I think this is a reflection of my oven's accuracy though as the bread did not get overly browned. I will definitely make this again. As this recipe makes a lot, it will be great for making multiple smaller loaves for gift giving, like at Christmas time. My family is nutty but don't care to eat them, so I added raisins to part of the batter and made muffins out of it. They grabbed them as they ran out the door. A huge hit with the entire family.

Whiskey Slush

Reviewed: May 16, 2014
This recipe (or many variations of it) has been around for at least 40 years. Great summer cooler which can be made with your choice of booze. There are many flavored syrups available (many with no sugar) so you can flavor it any way you want. Just substitute frozen lineade concentrate for the Orange juice for a more neutral base to suit your booze choice. I agree that the sugar is not needed. Between the juice concentrates and flavored booze and syrup it's just sugar overload. I want to taste the booze so increase the dosage to satisfy your own desired taste level. I've been enjoying this slush for years and I'm sure you will too.

Strawberry Angel Food Dessert

Reviewed: May 15, 2014
I have made this dessert for a long time. It's always a hit with everyone. I do substitute Splenda for the sugar and use sugarfree whipped topping as I am diabetic. Also I use a sugarfree angelfood cake. I have also made this with blueberries, making my own glaze as suggested in other reviews. This is a great go to dessert when you are short on time.

Cranberry Sauce

Reviewed: Nov. 24, 2010
Substitute Splenda(R) for the sugar if you are diabetic like myself. Also I like a bit more orange flavor so I add a little bit of orange zest. Good to the last spoonful.

Fried Turkey Wings

Reviewed: Nov. 5, 2010
These were a big hit with everyone. Didn't have any cayenne so I substituted some Frank's hot wing sauce and they turned out great. Let them marinate overnight and cooked them the next day. Have had requests to make them again already.

Ranch, Bacon, and Parmesan Pasta Salad

Reviewed: Jun. 2, 2010
Made this for Memorial Day picnic. I omitted the carrot and the parmesan cheese. Added a little bell pepper and a few sliced black olives. Substituted cheddar cheese for the parmesan. I was afraid the bacon would get soggy mixed in with the dressing, so I layered the cheese and the bacon on top of the pasta mixture just before serving for a nice presentation. I made this the night before and the pasta absorbed a lot of the dressing, so be liberal with it. I ended up using a full bottle. Everyone loved it. Not a smidgeon left.

E-Z Chicken Tortilla Bake

Reviewed: May 5, 2010
The taste of this dish was pretty good, but I didn't care for the texture of the tortillas in it. Just got too mushy. Next time I will use rice instead and add some more zing to it with some jalapeno. Also I used sour cream in place of the milk to give it a bit of richness.
