Kentucky Bourbon Sweet Potatoes

Reviewed: Nov. 22, 2012
I tried the recipe as written and it was good. The second time I personalized it a bit. I cut the potatoes in bite sized chunks- try to get them evenly sized so they cook evenly. I used 1/2 lightly packed brown sugar, and 1/2 white sugar. I added 1 teaspoon salt, 1 teaspoon cinnamon, and 1/4 t. nutmeg. Instead of the bourbon, I used 1/2 buttershots liquer and 1/2 dark rum. I lightly turned and basted the sweet potatoes every 15 minutes or so, and kept checking the doneness. Before serving(several hours later) I covered the top with 1 pkg. 10 oz. mini marshmallows, then broiled until lightly browned and puffy. Try it, you'll love it!

Fluffy Scrambled Eggs

Reviewed: Mar. 3, 2012
I had to make scrambled eggs for a large group. I used 4 dozen eggs, 1 pint half and half, and 12 oz. of evaporated milk with 1 t. or so of salt. I scrambled in butter in batches. (I mixed everything in a large pitcher for ease of pouring.) Everything was dumped into a steam tray and served buffet style over a period of a couple of hours. I was apprehensive, hoping they would hold up.Rave reviews! Everyone commented on how fluffy the eggs were and how delicious. I was surprised! I figured eggs are eggs, how good can scrambled eggs be? No, they all assured me, these were the best scrambled eggs they ever had. I used half and half because I was afraid too much canned milk would add an off taste. I think it would have been good either way. I didn't want to complicate things, but for home use, I might add sauteed onions, garlic, or veggies, and maybe cheese.

Fresh Orange Juice

Reviewed: Jan. 31, 2012
The juice is only as good as the oranges. Mine weren't so sweet, and I followed the recipe exactly as written, but it was bleh.

Hamburger Steak with Onions and Gravy

Reviewed: Dec. 3, 2011
Note: Serve this in a bowl over rice, top it with a fried(sunny side up or easy over) and you have a Hawaiian "Loco Moco." Comfort food!
