Bread Pudding II

Reviewed: Feb. 9, 2012
I normally don't like bread pudding but my husband does so I searched for a recipe and found this one. Here's what I did: Used half a loaf of stale French bread from the deli which was maybe 10-12 slices. Omitted raisins, used 3 tablespoons butter instead of 2, 3 eggs instead of 4 (per several reviews), used half n half instead of milk. Then I added 1/4 tsp of salt and 1/4 tsp of nutmeg. I put the pan in the fridge for a couple hours since I wasn't ready to bake it. I think that was key because it really soaked up the liquid. I baked it for 55 minutes for a less custardy pudding. My husband and I both enjoyed this very much but I think next time I make it I will up the sugar to one cup. It just wasn't sweet enough and I'm not one to like overly sweet desserts. I will try 3/4 cup white sugar and 1/4 cup brown sugar. I'm also going to cut back on the nutmeg to 1/8 tsp and maybe sprinkle chopped pecans over the top before I bake it. I think I will also cut the baking time by 5 minutes since it was just on the verge of becoming dry. If I remember, I'll come back and do an update.

Mom's Sticky Chicken From 1972

Reviewed: Feb. 22, 2011
This was fantastic! I used chicken tenders and prepared them according to the recipe. For the sauce I added an extra tablespoon of the hot sauce. I thought surely the amount of sugar would be too much! I almost reduced it but didn't. Since I was in a hurry, I kept the chicken on the stove to continue cooking and simmered the sauce on the stove in a separate pot till it got reduced and thick. I stirred it every couple of minutes then poured it over the chicken. My husband and I loved it!! Thanks for a wonderful recipe!!

Grill Master Chicken Wings

Reviewed: Feb. 11, 2011
First off, let me say that I cooked the chicken too long. I used boneless, skinless chicken breasts and cut them into smallish tenders. Browned them in a hot skillet on the stove then added them along with the sauce to a baking dish, covered it with foil and kept warm in the oven at 200 degrees. Even with the marinade they were a tad dry and a bit tough. But that was my fault, I need to prepare them better next time. I really want to comment on the sauce. It was excellent! Both hubby and I really enjoyed the taste and as a matter of fact, this Texas girl just found a new favorite hot sauce in Frank's Red Hot from New Jersey!! Who knew? lol!!! Spicy and tasty but not burning hot. Thanks Grillmaster!

Sweet, Sticky and Spicy Chicken

Reviewed: Feb. 26, 2010
UPDATE DEC 12 2010: I want to clarify that the first few times I made this I made changes like some other reviewers. I floured the chicken first, put the entire sauce over before putting it in oven. That was a mistake, the sauce burned! Did other variations but one day I decided to just follow the cooking instructions exactly and boy did it turn out perfectly! I don't usually have ginger root so I subtitute 1/4 tsp ground ginger and use a few shakes of dried red chili peppers instead of the hot sauce and use no salt because the soy sauce is salty enough. I cut the chicken into chunks though instead of strips. But the sauce always turns out thick, sweet and sticky for me when I cook it per the directions. We love it, it's one of our favorite dishes. Thanks Kate! This was excellent! I had previously tried a similar recipe from this site which included vinegar in the ingredients but I didn't like it although my husband did. But this one is perfect and we both loved it! I've made it a couple times already.
