Grandmother's Buttermilk Cornbread

Reviewed: Oct. 30, 2011
I haven't made homemade cornbread in a long time because my husband doesn't like it. Tonight I made chili so I figured now was the time to try some homemade cornbread on him. He said, "I don't normally like cornbread but I will definitely eat this." It was a great recipe but I did tweak it a bit. I reduced the amount of sugar to 1/4 cup because I felt the amount listed was just too much. I also ground up a can of sweet white corn and mixed all the ingredients in a seasoned cast iron skillet then cooked it in the oven for 23 minutes. It came out perfectly. It held together wonderfully. Had a lightly sweet taste but still tastes like the warm, buttery cornbread my grandma use to make.

Roasted Garlic Mashed Potatoes

Reviewed: Jul. 24, 2011
I think this is a good base recipe so I gave it four stars but I made several modifications. Instead of baking potatoes I use red potatoes. My family and I love the taste of these potatoes. I start off by peeling 9-10 red potatoes and then boiling them in a large pot for about 15 minutes. I find this amount of time provides the perfect amount of tenderness. While that in boiling I put a little olive oil and butter into a skillet and sauté 10-12 cloves of garlic as well as 3 sprigs of rosemary. When the potatoes are done boiling I place them into a large mixing bowl and add 1/2-3/4 pint of heavy whipping cream(whole milk works as well) as well as 2 tablespoons butter. I dump in the garlic and rosemary then use a hand masher to mix it together and add salt/pepper to taste.

Broccoli Chicken Casserole I

Reviewed: Jan. 10, 2009
I gave this recipe five stars because it's very versitile. I first used this a few years ago when my husband and I got married. It was easy and tasted great. Over the years I've gotten a little more daring with my meals and this option has been pushed to the back of the box but I recently pulled it out again. With a few simple modifications I think it becomes a fantastic meal. * I boiled the chicken in 1 can of broth 1/2 can of cream of chicken 1/4 cup water chopped clove garlic, chopped small white onion, 1 tbsp salt, 1 tbsp pepper, 2 tbsp italian seasoning and paprika When the chicken is tender it remove it from the mix and toss in the broccoli and boil until tender. Mix your boil to 1 can of mushroom soup(or cheddar if prefered) and 3/4 cups of milk. Mix broccoli, chicken and soup mixture into pan and layer with bread crumbs and cheddar jack cheese. Serve with mashed or au graten potatoes and I gurantee you'll have a fantastic meal.
