Hoagie Dip

Reviewed: Oct. 2, 2009
I looove Italian hoagies, so this is right up my alley. I go the Strip District (Pittsburgh thing) and get quality meats and cheeses: ham, spicy capicola, salami, pepperoni, and provolone. For the dressing: 1 cup mayonnaise, 1/4 cup sour cream, 1 T red wine vinegar, 2 T Italian Dressing, 2 t dried oregano. I like it cooked, but that's how I like my hoagies. In which case I serve the onions, hot pepper rings, lettuce and tomato on the side. I serve with lighly toasted french bread rounds. Also, my friends call this "deconstructed hoagie." I think it's an accurate description!

Mojo French Fries

Reviewed: Nov. 5, 2012
Fun, new-to-me way to make oven fries! I cut into fairly think wedges and the crispy coating really adhered well. I cooked at a lower temp but preheated the oil in my jelly roll pan while I was breading the potatoes. Used red potatoes because they were starting to sprout, I think regular Idado would be more suitable but it's nice to know that red or even Yukon could be used!

Japanese Style Deep Fried Shrimp

Reviewed: Dec. 3, 2010
Delicious. I seasoned with salt, pepper and garlic powder and then dreged in flour with paprika and cayenne. I added shredded coconut to the panko. These took no time to fry up in my electric skillet, maybe 2 minutes total, as soon as I saw the tails turn pink I took them out. Served with a dipping sauce of pinapple preserves, spicy mustard, honey and horseradish. My boyfriend said they were better than the ones we had at McCormick and Schmict's last week. Fantastic!

Barbecue Ribs

Reviewed: Jun. 6, 2011
Update: I boil spare ribs but bake baby backs at 250 for four hours, they always turn out tenter. My favorite rib recipe from this site. I now boil the ribs and they are indeed tender. The sauce is very good and simple. Still not like the slow-smoked variety but the best I've ever made at home.

Stuffed Roast Turkey

Reviewed: May 10, 2011
Wonderful! I used real eggs, not subsitute and used about 4 stalks of celery but followed the rest of the recipe to a T. This made some fantastic traditional stuffing (the best kind is the stuff from the bird). I really jammed it in there and still had lots leftover which I baked in a seperate pan as directed. Temp and time was spot on as well. Didn't quite use the gravy recipe. I was a little nervous making my first turkey for my family but it couldn't have been easier or turned out better. Thanks!

Fabulous Football Dip

Reviewed: Feb. 4, 2011
As is, unexpectedly good but not very pretty. My friend modified and I've been using her recipe ever since: 1 package cream cheese, 1 lb tube hot sausage, 1 can rotel, 1 can nacho cheese sauce and 1 package or block of shredded cheddar cheese. So so good. I like to serve it from my smaller crockpot; keeps it nice and warm. Go Steelers!!

Sausage Flowers

Reviewed: Apr. 26, 2012
I call these sausage cups and prebake the wrappers until the tops are browned. Great for a party because you can do all of the work beforehand and throw together once company is over. I also add some chopped onion and bell pepper, I saute it in the same pound as the hot sausage. Real crowd-pleaser!

Tartar Sauce II

Reviewed: Apr. 29, 2011
Very good, I didn't add the hard-boiled egg and used dill pickles instead of sweet relish.

Reunion Meatballs

Reviewed: Oct. 2, 2009
A local catering company makes delicious and different appetizer meatballs. I have tried several times to recreate them, this recipe come the closest to them. I use crushed ritz. Variations/additions to the sauce: cider vinegar, dry mustard, garlic powder, honey, and a ton of hot sauce! I like to bake them until they are deeply browned and then let them simmer in the sauce in a dutch oven or on low in the crockpot for hours so they are tender as can be.

Mouth-Watering Stuffed Mushrooms

Reviewed: Jan. 5, 2011
I don't eat these but everyone who has ever tried them loves them. I add lump crab meat and dip each mushroom in melted butter then pour melted butter into the bottom of the baking pan. Also I like to top with either crushed Triscuits or seasoned panko.

Boilermaker Tailgate Chili

Reviewed: Sep. 22, 2011
This is a great standard chili recipe that can be adapted based on what you have on hand/need to use up/etc.. I used a can of chili beans and a can of pinto beans, also used all ground beef. I halved the recipe and used beef broth instead of bullion and used a decent amount because I wanted a slightly soupy/less thick chili. I also didn't add the beer (didn't want to waste one for only a 1/4 cup). I ran out to run some errands and just put the pot of chili (in a dutch oven pot) into the oven at 350 for 2 hours. Easy as can be!

Jimmy Dean Sausage Cheese Balls

Reviewed: Sep. 20, 2011
Update: I made these again, but this time formed them into patties for breakfast sandwiches with eggs on bagels. They turned out well. I halved the recipe and served as part of a huge breakfast, they were the first thing gone! They needed longer than 20 minutes for me. Good use of bisquick. Wonderful dipped in ketchup.

Eggplant -- Easy, Good and Tasty

Reviewed: Sep. 19, 2011
I used panko that was thorougly seasoned. The coating adhered well. I used vegetable oil and my only complaint was that the rounds were pretty greasy. Next time I might try to just spray them with Pam.

Chicken Cordon Bleu II

Reviewed: Apr. 1, 2011
This was very tasty. I topped the ham with swiss then put a mixture of cream cheese, parmesan cheese and thyme onto that. I dredged it in flour, dipped in egg and coated with crushed corn flakes seasoned with with garlic salt, pepper and paprika. I made the sauce (to serve on the side; I browned the chicken in butter then baked in the oven on a wire rack on a baking sheet) but the chicken honestly didn't need it. Also, I thought it lacked flavor. Next time I'll either try to tweak it or skip it all together.

Half and Halfs

Reviewed: Mar. 29, 2012
This recipe sat in my recipe box for years, I'm glad I finally tried them. I used peanut butter chips for the chocolate dough and it was kind of crumbly when assembling but the end result was great! Nice deviation from my favorite cookie variety. Thanks for the recipe! In Pittsburgh, in addition to having wedding cakes, it's tradtional to have a cookie table with massive amounts of baked goods. This will be my go-to wedding cookie contribution because it's two halfs marrying into one delicious treat!

Oven Baked Zucchini Fries

Reviewed: Mar. 29, 2012
I used flour, egg, breadcrumb method. Everything stuck very well and the Progresso Italian Seasoned Panko bread crumbs browned and crisped up very nicely. I made some skinny and some fatter fries, I think I enjoyed the "steak-cut" variety more.

Veggie Pizza

Reviewed: Jan. 24, 2012
This is always a favorite, but 1 tsp of dill is overkill. I don't use radishes, but whatever I have on hand in terms of veggies-definitely carrots, broccoli, green onions, and a pepper of some kind though. I also like to do 1/2 sour cream and 1/2 mayo.

Beef Fajita Marinade

Reviewed: Sep. 20, 2011
I did equal parts oil, lime juice and tequila. Also added a splash of soy sauce. Made for tender beef, the longer you can let it marinate the better.

Honey Roasted Red Potatoes

Reviewed: Sep. 20, 2011
Simple and tasty. I sometimes use djion mustard in place of the powder and I also add seasoned salt. Definitely mix up several times throughout cooking to keep the butter mixture evenly distributed. I think this side dish is a good accompaniment to slightly fancier entrees. I wouldn't serve it with hamburgers etc.. but I think it's worked well with honey mustard pork chops, garlic and herb roasted pork loin and chicken marsala.
