Beef Tenderloin With Roasted Shallots

Reviewed: Nov. 21, 2010
Delicious. I made this for my parent's 30th wedding anniversary and it was a hit! I tripled the amount of meat and only doubled the sauce portion. There was plenty of sauce to go around. The only thing I did differently was subbed cabernet for the port because I forgot to buy it... (I added 2T brown sugar per cup of wine to make up for the sweetness of the port). I will definitely make this one again.

Mrs. Sigg's Snickerdoodles

Reviewed: Jan. 3, 2009
Some of the best snickerdoodles out there! I've been using this recipe for about 5 years and always recieve great reviews. I usually only use about 1/4c shortening and 3/4c butter. I add a little extra cinnamon and vanilla to the dough, too.

Jalapeno Popper Spread

Reviewed: Jan. 3, 2009
Yum! We served this at New Year's eve and our guests loved it. I used a 4oz can of chiles and 2 whole jalapenos (without the seeds). Next time, I will be sure to add extra jalapenos and some of the seeds to spice things up. I also mixed about 1/2 cup of parmesan into the mixture (I didn't read the recipe close enough and just started mixing). This will become a staple at all of our parties!

Taco Seasoning I

Reviewed: Oct. 25, 2006
This is a great replacement for store bought seasoning. It's fun to try different ground chili powders to get different levels of heat and flavor. Try a mix of ground ancho and chipotle chili powder in place of the generic "chili powder" concoction.

Garlic Butter

Reviewed: Oct. 25, 2006
Spread on thick-cut italian bread and broil for a few minutes. Yum! I usually use garlic powder and add a little salt. Fantastic!

Garlic Mashed Potatoes Secret Recipe

Reviewed: Oct. 25, 2006
The best mashed potatoes! I usually sub FF sour cream for most of the butter and add a little milk. Other than that, these are great.

Buffalo Chicken Dip

Reviewed: Oct. 25, 2006
I've made this for several parties and it's a hit everytime. It doesn't look the prettiest, but tastes great with tortilla chips. I usually use shredded chicken that is cooked in a crockpot with a can of chipotle peppers. You can then chop up some of the peppers with the chicken for some added flavor. Using lower fat cream cheese and ranch help a little with the nutritional numbers and you can't taste the difference. Mini crockpots work great for keeping the dip warm during the party.

Best Ever Muffins

Reviewed: Oct. 25, 2006
This is a pretty good starting point. I like to omit the oil and replace it with about a half cup of apple sauce. I then toss in some cinnamon chips and a tsp or so of cinnamon. Makes for a decent low-fat apple cinnamon muffin

Homesteader Cornbread

Reviewed: Oct. 25, 2006
This is the best cornbread recipe. It has made an appearance at every holiday and chili cook-off for the past three years! Be sure to use a cast iron skillet for baking. Tastes great with a little butter and honey! Yum!

Scalloped Potatoes for the BBQ

Reviewed: Oct. 25, 2006
These are a great grill side dish. I made them several times this summer when grilling with friends. I omitted the butter and sprayed the potatoes with a little olive oil. The fresh garlic and basil are a must! Be sure to use several layers of aluminum foil and spray it the inside layer with oil to prevent sticking.

Chicken Cordon Bleu I

Reviewed: Oct. 25, 2006
I love how easy this is. I have been using this recipe for several years now (the printed copy I have is dated 28 Oct 2000). Be sure to use very thinly sliced cheese and prosciutto (Italian ham). The prosciutto is quite salty, so be sure to omit the salt earlier in the recipe.

Lemon Chicken Soup I

Reviewed: Oct. 25, 2006
I was not a fan of this soup. There is way too much lemon and I didn't care for the texture of the pasta.

Apple Crisp II

Reviewed: Aug. 6, 2006
This was great! I ended up making a few modifications (I used extra-thick cut oats and added about half a cup of chopped pecans to the topping. I also added a little fresh lemon juice to the apples, doubled the cinnamon, threw in about 2 tsp vanilla, and omitted the water). . . the results were amazing. I served it with caramel ice cream. My husband's friend summed it up best. As I was passing out napkins, he said "This stuff is so good, I'm not going to waste it on a napkin. I'll lick my own face if I need to!"

Gourmet Sweet Potato Classic

Reviewed: Nov. 17, 2005
This recipe is the best! I have made it for every holiday over the past few years and it's always the first thing to go! It's a little on the sweet side, so you might want to cut back a bit on the brown sugar. No more marshmallows for me!

Fourth of July Potato Salad

Reviewed: Jul. 23, 2005
I made a few alterations to this recipe. I used light Miracle Whip in place of the mayo/sour cream/heavy cream to cut some fat and added some extra hard-boiled eggs (mostly the whites). I also left out the onion, but sprinkled in a little onion powder to get the flavor. The only complaint from my guests was that it wasn't mustardy enough. I will make this again with the above alterations (and a little more mustard).

Antipasto Pasta Salad

Reviewed: Jul. 23, 2005
I made this for a housewarming party and it was a hit with our guests. I used red, yellow, orange, and green peppers to add to the color and threw in some extra salami and pepperoni. I even enjoyed this and I really do not care for pasta salad.

Chocolate Scotcheroos

Reviewed: Mar. 4, 2005
We had these all the time back in college. They were the most popular thing served by the dining service! Don't bother measuring the cereal, just pour in enough to leave the bars gooey! These work well when you need a sugar/chocolate fix.

Chicken Enchiladas II

Reviewed: Mar. 4, 2005
These are good when you need a quick meal! I use cream of chicken soup in place of the mushroom, used minced garlic instead of powder, and skip the chiles. I mix all the ingrediants together and roll it up in the tortillas. I then top the dish with enchilada sauce (canned or homemade) and a little more cheese. They even reheat pretty well for lunch the next day. Thanks for the recipe!

Chicken Cashew Salad

Reviewed: Mar. 4, 2005
This review is a little late. I made this for a barbecue last summer. A nice change from the usual chicken salad. I left out the green peppers, used green onions, and mixed in some chopped red grapes. It was a hit at the party.

Ginny's Raspberry Truffles

Reviewed: Mar. 4, 2005
I made these with some friends for Christmas and we each took some to our families. They are incredibly rich! These were a big hit with some people. . . others really didn't care for them. My sister's boyfriend ate most of my share. Of the people that liked them, they preferred the ones rolled in coconut(we also used Schokinag cocoa powder and powdered sugar).
