Garlicky Appetizer Shrimp Scampi

Reviewed: Jun. 14, 2015
Excellent flavor and easy to prepare. I used half basil olive oil. Let shrimp marinate in sauce a couple hours. Cooked in skillet on the stove as my large shrimp were too small to skewer and grill. Much faster too. I did use as an appetizer but I can see using the cooked sauce tossed with spaghetti and the shrimp on top. Added a sprinkle of chopped fresh basil.

Hot Pizza Dip

Reviewed: Jun. 14, 2015
I mixed everything together, and also added chopped scallion as I was chopping it for another dish. Added another cup of mozerella cheese on top and baked for 20 minutes at 350. Color wasn't so great but taste was excellent. Kept the top from getting hard as it cooled. Served with crackers and pretzel crackers that had similar spices.

Sausage Egg Casserole

Reviewed: Jun. 8, 2015
I didn't care for the consistentsie of this casserole. In all fairness and to be helpful to other prospective cooks, I put it all together the night before. It was dense. Probably from letting the baking powder and flour sit all night so would not recommend doing that. I won't try again as I prefer the ones you can put all together the night before if I'm having company.

Overnight Blueberry French Toast

Reviewed: Apr. 4, 2015
This is a five star recipe if you add 1/4 cup powdered sugar to the cream cheese and sprinkle with cinnamon. Otherwise I made exactly as written. Just drop by teaspoonfuls on top of first bread layer. All French toast has cinnamon on it so that was a given for me. Used two small containers of blueberries. Put one cup on top of cheese. The rest (and I didn't even measure) I used in the syrup. 12 eggs. Real maple syrup. I pressed the top layer of bread down in the egg mixture so it all got covered. Baked in a convection oven at 350* for 30 minutes covered and 30 minutes uncovered. This timing came out perfect for my oven. Poured some of the syrup over the casserole while warm. Served the rest on the table for those who wanted more. Served with skinless smoked sausage for an awesome breakfast. This could be put together real fast in the evening if the bread was already cubed and the cream cheese mixed. I used about 16, 1/2" slices of store bakery French bread cubed.

White Chocolate Chip Oatmeal Cookies

Reviewed: Jan. 1, 2015
These are good. Hubby liked. I thought they were to chocolatee he didn't. I threw in about 3/4cup of dried cranberries as I really wanted to make the white chocolate cranberry cookie recipe on this site but needed more cookies that that one had and not enough cranberries. It was a good addition. Used walnuts, my preference over pecans. Took 12 minutes on a light cookie sheet. Still chewy which we prefer over crunchy.

Szechwan Shrimp

Reviewed: Jan. 24, 2014
Awesomely spicy! I doubled the sauce. Could not imagine not doing that. I added sugar pea pods, shaved carrots and the green onion to have our veggies all in one pot. I don't think I put enough shrimp in (just dumped some in). It only served two with some left over rice. Will definitely make again. Would also be good with chicken or beef.

Peppermint Martini

Reviewed: Jan. 3, 2014
Really, really good. So good I had two. ?? I thought the recipe called for a splash of half and half so I used just a bit of f/f 1/2 1/2. But that must have been another recipe I saw. So it was really good with 1/2 1/2. Would be stronger without and I'm sure I'd like it that way too!

Taco Salad III

Reviewed: Jan. 3, 2014
Very good. Mixed the pintos into the meat mixture. Served everything on the side so everyone could add what they liked. And I could keep the salad and it would be good the next day.

Green Beans with Cherry Tomatoes

Reviewed: Jan. 3, 2014
Very good. Easy to make at the last minute. Everyone really liked it. I stirred the tomatoes in at the last minute so they stayed plump. I also used the fresh basil in the tube as I sometimes don't use up all the fresh I buy and it goes to waste. I will make this again in the summer when I have fresh basil growing.

Slow Cooker Enchiladas

Reviewed: Aug. 15, 2013
This recipe as is, is bland and tastes like mushroom soup. After tasting, I doctored it up and I would give my version 4 stars. Here it is if anyone's interested. 1 lb ground beef, 1 lb ground turkey (all low fat versions). 1 pkg. taco seasoning, 1 pkg. dry enchilada seasoning. Use just 1 cup of water. Add, cumin, oregano and chopped jalapeño peppers. Didn't measure any of it just went by taste. Add soups. Stir all together. Layer in crockpot, starting and ending with whole corn tortilla. I used 12 (if I remember right). Top each layer with cheese. Needed about 3 cups. Using less water made it less soupy. Was not at all dry. Single tortilla layers kind of got lost in the finished product but taste was probably the same. Mine cooked on low for about 4 hours but it wouldn't need to. Made early, layered in crock pot, and heated up several hours later. Served with sour cream and taco sauce.

Cinnamon Snack Mix

Reviewed: Jun. 19, 2013
Sticky! I made as written. Baked as written only stirring after 5 minutes. I dumped out on waxed paper to cool. It is very sticky and messy to eat. Not kid friendly. Maybe need to cut down on butter and honey or bake a little longer. I won't try it again though. I did not have problems with anything burning. Disappointed as it isn't cheap to make.

Macaroni and Cheese with Caramelized Onions and Bacon

Reviewed: May 27, 2013
A lot of dirty pans for an ok Mac and cheese. I just mixed the onion mixture with the Mac to blend the flavors more. Not sure if I would make again but it was ok. Sprinkled a little more panko with asiago on top.

Wedge Salad with Elegant Blue Cheese Dressing

Reviewed: May 21, 2013
The dressing is VERY good and I don't like blue cheese normally. I added bacon bits but did everything else as written. As good as any restaurant!

Tres Leches (Milk Cake)

Reviewed: Apr. 4, 2013
Made as written. This was VERY soupy. Maybe it's supposed to be. Over a cup too much milk concoction. Not enough cake to soak it all up. I served with Vanilla Caramel Ice cream. I think it would've been better with half the milk mixture. The milk floating around the sides was just not appealing to me. I guess the flavor was ok. Used Pwd. Sugar instead of regular.

Honey Roasted Carrots

Reviewed: Apr. 2, 2013
Made these a second time and they weren't as good as the first. Had other things in the oven at the same time but even the baby carrots didn't get done in an hour on convection bake. I thought they were better the first time.

Three Cheese Garlic Scalloped Potatoes

Reviewed: Apr. 2, 2013
Delicious! Each time my husband eats the leftovers he raves about them just like he was eating them for the first time. Guess these will have to be my go-to potato recipe. His son made them so it can't be that hard. It's a keeper.

Carolina-Style Barbeque Sauce

Reviewed: Mar. 17, 2013
Used on his brined pork chops and tuna steaks. Good on both. I thought the pork was a bit salty from the brine even after rinsing the meat before cooking. Sauce smelled of vinegar but did not taste like vinegar after grilling. I did not use all the hot pepper flakes, just sounded like a bit much. Used about half and thought it was hot enough. It was good enough I will try again.

Molasses Brined Pork Chops

Reviewed: Mar. 17, 2013
This was a little salty. And i even rinsed the chops before grilling.Will cut the salt next time. Used with his bar b q suggestion. Also had high quality Duroc pork so hope I didn't ruin them by brining them. But had a lot of compliments.
