Coconut Syrup

Reviewed: Feb. 23, 2011
This is so much better than the so called Coconut Syrup one gets in Hawaii ... You can actually taste the coconut !... I used an immersion "stick" blender before cooking the Coconut Milk, Coconut and Sugar, and the coconut is barely perceptible ... I changed the recipe by using plain White Sugar instead of Brown Sugar to keep the syrup white, as opposed to having the final product, tan ... A bit more appealing to me and mine ... Sooooooooooo GOOD ...

Fry Sauce

Reviewed: May 12, 2011
My Niece, who owns a couple of restaurants uses "Fry Sauce" with fresh snipped or dried Dill Weed mixed in, on her Reuben Sandwiches, in place of "regular" 1000 Island Dressing ... Myself, I sieve a hard boiled egg and a splash of lemon juice mixed with the "Dill Fry Sauce" and use for a shrimp cocktail sauce ... It's pretty tasty as a bread spread for plain old cheese sandwiches also ...

Orange Sherbet Salad

Reviewed: Apr. 8, 2010
I've been making this 'salad' for years ... Though I drain the Mandarin Oranges and save the liquid, adding this liquid to make the 2 cups of water ... Also, try using Vanilla Ice cream in place of the Orange Sherbet ... The end result is very much like a Half & Half Creamsicle ...

Ground Beef Mexican Style

Reviewed: Sep. 5, 2004
Reading over other cooks reviews, I added the Taco Seasoning while the ground beast was browning. I can't imagine how bland it would have been without that addition. In fact I also added 1 TBS of McCormicks 1 Step Beef (Tex Mex Chili) to give it even more pizzazz ... In my opinion the extra spice(s) only added to the finished product. We love SPICY! The chopped tomatoes on top, gave the dish the needed color, texture and flavor to this wonderful "Mexican Strogonoff". Wish I had made more now, I only made 1/2 recipe ... Thanks Kris for submitting the recipe. For sure a keeper in my recipe book. ******

Homemade Noodles

Reviewed: Aug. 21, 2004
Every couple of months a group of OLD friends get together for a "retro dinner" ... This time dinner was at my house, and Homemade Chicken and Noodles was on the menu along with Cornbread ... Having never made noodles before I was a bit afraid they would turn out like the ones my Grandmother used to make, which were like "anemic rubber bands" ... All I can say, is WOW!!! I WILL NEVER purchase egg noodles in the grocery store again. Craig, you posted the recipe in memory of Elizabeth, I made the noodles this morning with my 96 year old Grandmother's Rolling Pin. Perhaps both of the ladies were with me, while I was making these delicious noodles. Thanks again for submitting the recipe. I cooked for 8 and just quadrupled the recipe, must say I did have to add a couple of extra eggs to get the correct(or what I thought) consistency to roll out ... I wish my Grandmother "had her mind" so she could enjoy the outcome. I doubt she'd be impressed, as her food is pureed these days.

Grilled Chicken Pasta Salad

Reviewed: Aug. 18, 2004
The first time I prepared this recipe it turned out very dry. I used a bit of garlic powder along with the Lemon Pepper Seasoning Blend to add a bit more flavorto the chicken, but other than the garlic powder, the reciped was followed as posted. The second time I made this recipe, I used Marinated Artichoke Hearts and mixed the marinade with the juice of 1/2 lemon, then poured a portion over the Grilled Chicken, Pasta and Lemon Pepper Seasoning Blend. The added liquid or dressing made all the difference in the world ... The results were much better, in my book, than the orginal posted recipe.

Applesauce Custard Pie

Reviewed: Aug. 18, 2004
Too bad the star rating only goes to 5, because this one deserves many more!!! Thanks for submitting this DELICIOUS recipe, Cathy. After reading other reviews, I decided to omit a portion of the sugar also, I found 2/3 cup was sufficient and the pie was still plenty sweet. Next time this gem is prepared, I will add some raisins. I did use a mix of cloves, nutmeg and cinnamon in the "batter", which floated to the top as the pie cooked ... Perfect in every way, and "so tasty too" ...

Babe Ruth Bars

Reviewed: Jun. 15, 2004
Granted these gems are delicious, at least what I scraped out of the pan, the remainder are cooling before they are cut. I agree, they are more like Watchmacallits than Baby Ruth's. I must admit, I felt like Lucy minus Ethyl at the Candy Factory while preparing this recipe! I needed another set of hands, as the concoction sets up VERY QUICKLY when the cereal is added. Not thinking when the spatula was not working to mix everything I "dove in" with my hands. Can you say HOT LAVA????? Even though I had a bit of trouble making these, they still get 5 stars. BTW, burn ointment works as good as buttered hands when pressing into the pan to cool.

Cake Mix Cookies I

Reviewed: Nov. 21, 2003
Try using a Devils Food Cake Mix, adding 1 cup of Chocolate Chips, 1/2 cup chopped Macadamia Nuts and 1/2 cup Flaked Coconut. Nearly a week after making the cookies, the few that are left are still moist and chewy. Awsome recipe with so many variations, Thanks for posting ...

Bailey's Sundae Coffee Drink

Reviewed: Jan. 17, 2003
This works well with just about any liqueur. YUMMY with Kahlùa or Frangelico. Bailey's is NOT one of my favorites. To this day, anything that lists 'Irish Cream' has to be skipped ...

Monkey Bread I

Reviewed: Sep. 24, 2002
Very good recipe BUT, DO USE A BUNDT PAN. I used a tube pan like one uses for an Angel Food Cake. You should see the bottom of my oven and the racks,looking like baked on Stalactites!!! Instead of the inviting aroma of cinnamon, my house is filled with the stench of burning brown sugar and butter.

Em and Nic's Apple Chicken

Reviewed: Sep. 21, 2002
WOW! What a great dish ... Would NEVER have thought to mix these various flavors. Only thing I did different was transfer the chicken and raisins to a dish and thicken the sauce with a bit of corn starch. Also, added 1 peeled, cored and chopped apple to the sauce just as it was beginning to thicken. Certainly a keeper in my book... Thanks for posting this DEE Licious recipe.

Maple Syrup Casserole Made in Heaven

Reviewed: Jan. 31, 2003
I added a few raisins between the layers of bread, and mixed some cinnamon, cloves and nutmeg to the egg-milk-syrup mixture ... This is soooooooooooooo Good! Thanks Dawn for a fabulous recipe, too bad the rating stars only go to 5, cause this one gets a 10 in my book.

Lemon Lush Pie

Reviewed: Sep. 17, 2002
This is a great pie and very easy to make. I omitted 1/4 cup milk and added 1/4 cup extra lemon juice, since I prefer a tart pie. Turned out perfect in every way ...

Peanut Butter-Chili Chicken

Reviewed: Sep. 16, 2002
I used grilled chicken breasts instead. When I make the sauce I add 1/4-1/2 tsp. coconut extract and extra cayenne pepper(lots), then spoon the sauce over the chicken. If you happen to have coconut milk substitute it for the cup of water, you'll not be disappointed. Yesterday, I made it as the recipe was posted using breasts and it turned out great. Don't be squemish about the various ingredients, this is a FABULOUS entreè. Serve with a Coconut Rice, also from an posting. Reminds me of travels to Singapore for Chicken Satè, except no jet lag!

Country Banana Bread

Reviewed: Sep. 14, 2002
I have made this very quick Bananna Bread several times,always adding chopped pecans or walnuts to the recipe. Today I changed a bit and used a Devils Food cake mix, adding not only the chopped nuts but some chocolate chips, the results are even better than the orginal recipe, I believe ... The best of both worlds, Banana Nut Bread and Chocolate!
