Chicken Enchiladas II

Reviewed: Nov. 11, 2010
These are by far the best chicken enchilada recipe I have found! The only change that I make is to use yellow corn tortillas as that is what really makes them "enchiladas" and not "burritos". I have added a can of drained tomatoes and green chilis for a variation. We serve with homemade spanish rice and black beans. My entire family raves about this recipe. I like to buy a roasted chicken from my local grocery store to help impart some flavor, or even use fajita chicken breasts which you cook ahead of time. Awesome!

Spiced Plum Bread

Reviewed: Jun. 24, 2010
As written this is just a three star bread. Way too dry as othere have written. There was nothing special about it the first time I made it. The second time I did not peel the plum but instead placed them in a food processor and chopped them. I used 2 full cups of chopped plum and added a 1/4 cup of brown sugar to counteract the tartness. The bread turned out to be much better but still not exactly what I was looking for.

Purple Plum Pie

Reviewed: Jun. 24, 2010
This pie is fantastic! The perfect combination of sweet and tart. I had 3 gallons of fresh plums that I had to do something with. I ended up making 3 of these pies in a week and giving them to friends. They raved about how good they were! I followed the recipe exactly all three times. I used a deep dish pie pan and a store bought pastry crust. I baked them for 50 minutes and they were cooked perfectly. I did not have any problems with the crust getting too brown but then the crust barely stuck up above the filling. This will become one of my seasonal staples. Thank you so much for sharing!

Merwin's Shrimp Gumbo

Reviewed: Feb. 16, 2010
This recipe makes the best gumbo that we have ever made!! The first time I made according to directions and it turned out ok....a little on the bland side. The next time, I made the roux super dark...like milk chocolate and that did it!! It was the best gumbo ever. I add chicken stock that I have either gotten at the store or made previously and this cuts back on the time factor. I add fresh shrimp and crab claw meat at the very end. Then I serve it with the file powder which is a must and with Louisiana hot sauce so my guests can really spice it up! We love hot and spicy foods so we can go pretty far. One trick I learned was to get the oil screaming hot but not smoking, then whisk flour in quickly and turn heat down. THe flour will brown quicker and easier. I also never turn the heat down to low...I have a gas stove so it can get pretty low. I always leave a med and just whisk til my arms hurt...a great workout!! I like my roux a nice milk chocolate color...don't be afraid!! You will love this recipe and it is definitely worth it.

Double Cheesy Au Gratin Potatoes

Reviewed: Feb. 3, 2010
This is sooooo good! Not high up on the health factor but for a special dinner it is absolutely worth it. I have my father-in-law over for dinner and we had this along with a herb roasted pork loin. He raved how it tasted just like his grandmothers! Thank you so much for sharing!!

Grill Dough

Reviewed: Jul. 22, 2009
I made a double batch of this recipe last night for my family who had come to vist. My nieces stretched out their own small pizza doughs and got to choose which toppings to put on the pizza. We grilled the dough on both sides for a few minutes and then took it off the grill, added the toppings and put back on the grill until the cheese was almost melted. Then we place the pizzas on a cookie sheet and put them in the oven on broil for a few minutes to make the top crust and cheese nice and golden brown. It was the perfect pizza!! Thank you for a great recipe!!!

Kalua Pig in a Slow Cooker

Reviewed: Jul. 20, 2009
This is definitely the REAL thing!! I have been to Hawaii several times and this is exactly how I remember it. It is tender, juicy and yes, salty! Which is exactly how it is made in Hawaii. Great served with Hawaiian Mac Salad or served over rice. We recently had a luau party and I used 3 roasts in two slow cookers. It definitely took 20 hours to make but was well worth it. Everyone raved! Thanks for sharing!!

Amish White Bread

Reviewed: Jul. 20, 2009
I cannot say enough about how good and simple this bread is. The first time I made it at home for my family and they loved it!! I read the reviews and reduced the sugar to 1/3 cup and made half the bread into a loaf, half into rolls. I personally did not eve notice the sugar. The second time I made this bread with my preschool class. They had a great time mixing an kneading by hand!! This time I used the full 2/3 cup of sugar and we made the entire thing into rolls. It turned out beautifully brown and soft. But I think that was too much sugar as it was a little bit too much on the sweet side. Next time I will play with it to see what is the perfect sugar amount for me. Thank you for a wonderful recipe!!!
