Buttery Soft Pretzels

Reviewed: Sep. 24, 2010
I made these last night and the family loved them. The first sheet of pretzels browned alittle to much on the bottem but were still great. I lowered the oven temp to 425 and the second batch was perfect. I did have trouble dipping them without having totally reshape them afterward. I'm not sure how to avoid that.

My Mom's Parmesan Chicken

Reviewed: Aug. 23, 2010
One word.....Awesome! I did use boneless skinless breast and sherry because thats what I had on hand. I do really like bone-in chicken and can't wait to try it that way also. This was such a quick simple dish with amazing taste.

Monte Cristo Sandwich - the Real One

Reviewed: Jun. 24, 2010
I made these for dinner tonight and my kids just loved them and so did I. It turned out exactly as I expected. I get so annoyed with bad reviews based on fat and calorie content you should know by looking this isn't healthy. Things like this are meant to be a treat not a daily meal and as such was perfect as cross between a sandwich and a donut lol. I fried mine in about an inch of oil and flipped quickly to get all the batter cooking.

Southern Ham and Brown Beans

Reviewed: Jun. 18, 2010
I made these beans yesterday to eat today but I found myself eating them late last night because I just had to have some. I grew up eating basic white beans cooked with ham hocks but my late mother in law always made "brown" beans with fried taters and cornbread. This recipe was great except I did do the quick soak with just water and drained and rinsed afterward then proceded with the recipe. I was skeptical about the chili powder I didn't want them to taste like chili but after hours of a low simmer it was perfect. I used some country ham pieces packaged just for seasoning. I am sure for those looking for a recipe to take them back to the past where a pot of beans was simmering and time was spent with someone you loved. This will do the trick. Remember seasoning is a matter of taste so don't low rate a recipe cause you up the seasoning. A true cook never measures unless baking anyway.

Apple Pie by Grandma Ople

Reviewed: Sep. 30, 2009
This recipe is truly worthy of its rave reviews. I have to admit I've never really been an apple pie fan but I think I just ate a little slice of heaven. I had some apples to use up and thought I would give it a try. I also made my own crust for the very first time and am sure that made all the difference in the world also. I used French Pastry Pie Crust from the site. I did use butter in place of shortening and it turned ok perfect. I was truly touched by the review from the person that posted this recipe. I will be proud to place this wonderful recipe in my collection to pass on for more generations. Thanks for allowing us all to enjoy your Grandma's recipe.

Grandmother's Buttermilk Cornbread

Reviewed: Sep. 30, 2009
This truly is a five star recipe. It is perfect. It is pretty sweet which I like but if you prefer you could decrease the sugar and still have wonderful moist cornbread. No crumbly pieces with this one cuts well and taste great. I didn't have buttermilk so I made sour milk but I can't wait to try it with the real thing.

Corn Dogs

Reviewed: Jul. 21, 2009
I have made these twice now and the first time they were perfect pretty as a picture but the second time I didn't have time to chill my batter as long and I had problems with it running off in the oil some before it started to fry up. I also took the suggestion of another a review and just for fun the second time I used the cheapest hotdogs out there and it did give them a more geniune carnival taste although I prefered them made with the higher cost and quality hotdogs. For sure the secrect to success is chilling the batter in the freezer till it is very cold and thick. I also used a tall glass to dip in. A little patience and you will be pleased with the result.

Yellow Squash Casserole

Reviewed: Jul. 14, 2009
This was great I may have to eat the whole pan myself because my kids think any kind of casserole is gross and won't even taste it. I made it exactly as written and it turned out perfect. If you have more squash growing in the garden than you know what to do with try this its a good way to use some up.

Creamy Frosting

Reviewed: Mar. 30, 2009
I was a little skeptical about this recipes because of some of its bad reviews but it turned out perfect. I found the tips that "justme" wrote in their review. This recipes takes time and patience for it to turn out. I used it to frost a two layer jello poke cake. It has a silky texture and does look like whipped cream. It is nice for a change from overly sweet icings. Just remember you do have to beat it for a long time for the sugar to dissolve and become fluffy.

Bread Pudding II

Reviewed: Mar. 24, 2009
This was so easy and turned out perfect. I might have used a bit more bread since I was using leftover crusty loaf bread. I knew with so many great reviews it had to be good.

Easy Strata and Variations

Reviewed: Mar. 5, 2009
I loved the basics of this recipe I scaled it down a bit according to what I had on had. I didn't have any meat so I made it with just onion and mushrooms. I had a hunk of extra sharp cheddar that came out to two cups. I cooked the onion and mushrooms and let them cool before assembly. I like that this recipe let me know it was ok not to wait overnight to bake. I'm not sure how much soaking over night would change things. I was looking to make this now and it turned out wonderful. I've never had this before but I can't wait to try it again with different stuff.

Famous Butter Chicken

Reviewed: Nov. 12, 2008
I made this for dinner tonight using a few of the other reviews suggestions. I used chicken tenders because thats what I had and coated them in flour before the egg and then cracker mixture. I used satines and added about a 1/4 cup parmesan cheese to the mix. I even had some unexpected company show up while these were baking and everyone loved them too. I love that it uses stuff we all already have on hand. Try it you'll love it too.

Slow-Cooker Chicken Tortilla Soup

Reviewed: Nov. 5, 2008
This by far the best soup I've ever had. This recipe is a great base to add you own taste to. I how ever don't use the slow cooker I have made my own stock with a small chicken with the usual carrots, celery, and onions and I've also took a shortcut and used one of those great already roasted chickens and canned broth. Is just as great either way. I like to add carrots, blackbeans and I always top each bowl with avacado chunks with fresh lime juice and ofcourse the tortilla strips. I make mine by cutting corn tortilla into strips and fry them in a sauce pan in an inch or so of canola oil and salt them as I lay them on paper towel to drain. My family loves these. I'm sure baking them saves calories I'll have to try it sometime. Thanks for the great recipe.
