Garlic Croutons

Reviewed: Aug. 6, 2010
Made these last week with a multi-grain French loaf. They turned out really good. Today I'm using a Black Russian Pumpernickel. I'm into shortcuts so this time I'm melting the butter in the microwave and adding powdered garlic to it. I am also adding salt as I thought it was needed originally. I am putting the cubed bread into a very large bowl and drizzling the garlic butter over the bread as I stir it around. I think this will get the butter more evenly distributed and I can do it all at once instead of batches in the skillet.

Juicy Butt Steaks

Reviewed: Jul. 26, 2010
I wanted to do something different with the pork butt steaks I had on hand. I usually just sprinkle with Season All and bake or grill. Came across this recipe. Glad I did. The steaks came out amazingly tasty. I still sprinkled with Season All, baked at 350 for about 15-20 minutes. Then covered with sliced onion and a mixture of 1 cup Sweet Baby Rays and water (did not have ketchup). I continued to bake, uncovered, for another hour or so. The meat just fell apart. The onions were so good. Next time I will slice up about 3 onions. I basted the onions and exposed steak with the sauce a couple of times. My husband could not stop raving. This is a keeper!

Curried Coconut Chicken

Reviewed: Jul. 10, 2010
This was outstanding! I actually used bone-in, skin-on thighs. After cooking the curry with the oil, adding the onion & garlic, then adding the tomato, I braised the thighs with the curry for about 20-30 minutes. I then mixed the remaining ingredients and put the lid on to simmer for about an hour. The chicken was done to perfection. I topped with fresh cilantro and served over rice. The family loved it! Will be making again. Next time I will add chunks of zucchini and sliced fresh mushroom. I think I will also add pineapple chunks and add the juice in place of the sugar.

Grilled Shrimp Scampi

Reviewed: May 25, 2010
This is beyond amazing! I did use half butter/half olive oil. Dried parsley. Fresh garlic in a tube (Gourmet Gardens brand). We had those frozen gigunda shrimp from Sam's. They are like small lobster tails. My husband's birthday dinner rocked!!!

Yummy Honey Mustard Dipping Sauce

Reviewed: May 19, 2010
This is really awesome tasting and easy to make. I put all the ingredients in a bowl and my 5-yr-old mixed it up. She tasted it and dubbed herself an "amazing chef!" This would make a great dressing for a Fried Chicken Salad. Yum!

Cheese-Stuffed Jalapenos

Reviewed: May 12, 2010
I used those colorful little sweet peppers that are all the rage right now instead of jalapenos. I also wrapped the entire peppers with bacon (as in mummy-style). I baked at 375 degrees for about 20 minutes, then put the broiler on to crisp them. They were AWESOME! Sorry to change up the original recipe so much. I didn't change the filling at all. That's what makes this recipe so good. The addition of the Worcestershire and cheddar make this version so much better than the rest. Edit 7/2010: I now add a teaspoon of Hidden Valley Ranch dry dressing mix. It really makes the filling flavor pop!

Easy Biscuits

Reviewed: Mar. 7, 2010
Enjoying these right now. These are the best biscuits ever! I used butter instead of shortening, whole milk, a tsp. of baking powder and 1/2 tsp of baking soda and a dash of salt. I placed the biscuits so they were touching sides, brushed with milk. They are perfect for egg sandwiches or just butter and jam. Thanks for an awesome recipe! My husband commented that if we add some garlic, herbs and cheddar and brush the top with garlic butter, these would be identical to Red Lobster's biscuits! He's right!!!

Sugar Cookie Icing

Reviewed: Feb. 10, 2010
I am a total novice at using this type of icing. It was super easy to make. Just add drops of milk until you get the consistency you like. I used gel coloring and the colors are outstanding and the icing didn't get thinned by it. I dipped some cookies and used a small paint brush to ice others. I used vanilla instead of almond extract. The icing is perfectly sweet and tastes awesome. I hope to get brave enough to do some piping with it soon. Thanks for the great recipe!

Best Big, Fat, Chewy Chocolate Chip Cookie

Reviewed: Dec. 28, 2009
I made batch after batch of these cookies this holiday season and everyone raved about them. I refrigerated the dough overnight and rolled 1/8 c. balls out and placed them about 3 inches apart. I could only get 6 to a cookie sheet. I took them out when they only got slightly brown around the edges. They were better than the cookies you get in the mall and they were really big! LOVED them. This is my all-time favorite chocolate chip cookie .

Roasted Pumpkin Seeds

Reviewed: Dec. 27, 2009
I boiled the seeds the night before and let them dry out on a cookie sheet. These really tasted wonderful. Would like to try the garlic/butter and cinnamon/sugar options next time!

French Toast Casserole

Reviewed: Dec. 25, 2009
It's Christmas morning and I made this with some leftover Pannetone (that round Italian holiday bread). I used half a round of Pannetone and the measurements listed here, using slightly more vanilla. I sprinkled brown sugar and chopped walnuts on top. After pouring the egg mixture onto the bread cubes, I let it sit for 15 minutes. Then I stirred the bread cubes thoroughly to saturate evenly with the egg mix. I baked in a 12 3/4 in x 10 3/8 in. disposable aluminum pan covered with foil for the first 30 minutes. I then took the foil off for 14 minutes. It looked set, so I took it out and covered with foil until ready to serve. It was perfect!

Chocolate Chip Pudding Cookies

Reviewed: Dec. 24, 2009
I made this with chocolate pudding. My husband accidentally bought the cook & serve type. They were awesome with semisweet choco chips! Just don't over-bake them.

Apple Crisp IV

Reviewed: Nov. 11, 2009
This was the best crisp I've ever had and I've had many. I've made 2 so far and have gotten raves both times. The bottom crust is a great idea. I did read the reviews and incorporated a few tweeks. I did not peel my apples (used a dozen Fuji). I diced them into medium sized cubes and sprinkled about 2 t. lemon juice, a good dash of cinnamon, and 1 t. pure vanilla extract on them and let them sit while I mixed the crust ingredients. I also decreased the flour to 1 1/2 cups and used 1/4 t. nutmeg and 1/4 t. pumpkin pie spice in place of the full amount of nutmeg. After pressing half of the crust into the pan, I poured all the apples and any juices that were created and then topped with remaining crust. Baked until golden brown. It was perfect!

Spanakopita II

Reviewed: Sep. 2, 2009
These are restaurant-quality or better. Worth the effort. I read all the reviews and incorporated a lot of the tips given that I thought would work well for me in regard to the rolling and the flavor. I did the 1-sheet, fold-in-half, then fold into flags technique and I also did the egg-roll style with 1-sheet. I used butter flavored Pam spray. I also used only 2 eggs, added a bit of garlic, lemon juice and nutmeg. The filling just needs to be tweaked to your liking. That said.....LOVED THEM!!!!!

Vietnamese Fresh Spring Rolls

Reviewed: Aug. 23, 2009
These are AWESOME! Following others' suggestions, I held the dry spring roll wrapper under the tap for a second each side and worked on a wet dish cloth to assemble. You can use practically any salad-type filling for these. In fact, I think we will use salad dressing for our dipping sauces next time. Did not care for the fish sauce. The hoisin was good. I also used Trader Joe's Sweet Chili Sauce which was very good on these. I am going to make these fresh on some mornings to put in my pre-schooler's lunch box. She loved them!

Fresh Fig Cookies

Reviewed: Aug. 14, 2009
Not sure what I did differently, but mine were not cakey at all. In fact, they were very thin yet moist and chewy. I did add a half cup of choco chips and a half cup of raisins and subbed cinnamon for the cloves. Other than that all the ingredients were the same. They taste really great and my friend's uber-picky child loved them. Great way to sneak some nutritional value into a cookie via the figs.

Oh My Gosh Muffins

Reviewed: Aug. 9, 2009
Very easy & yummy! I did make a few small changes. I used 1 c. sugar and 3 bananas. I also subbed fresh blueberries for the chocolate. I baked them in a mini-muffin pan and it made 24 exactly (filled 3/4 full). I don't like giving my 4 yr. old an adult size muffin and she doesn't like it when I cut one in half. Giving her a mini-muffin is perfect. They had the right amount of sweetness. The banana/blueberry combo is great! I will make with banana/choco combo a later time, maybe with some coconut sprinkled in. Yum!
