Bacon-Balsamic Deviled Eggs

Reviewed: Nov. 25, 2009
We loved these. Husband said they were the best deviled eggs he has ever eaten. That means a lot because deviled eggs are probably one of his favorite foods. One suggestion I have is to grate the onion instead of mincing. Makes it much easier, and you don't have to worry about accidentally biting into a too large chunk of onion. Thanks for the recipe!!! Something extra: Today I turned this recipe into egg salad because my husband had bought some baconnaise and these eggs popped into my mind. Super good! Just added about a tablespoon of dijon to it.

Country Green Beans

Reviewed: Oct. 10, 2009
Husband really liked these. I used 3 slices of bacon to replace the ham (we didn't have any) Cooked the bacon and then removed. Sauteed onions in drippings, then added the rest along with some fresh garlic. Very very good.

Mom's Chocolate Meringue Pie

Reviewed: Jan. 13, 2011
I made this twice for the holiday season trying to duplicate a pie my dad loves. The first time I made it as the recipe states, but it came out too gummy, not creamy like I wanted. People liked it, but I knew it could be much better. Second time I added an extra egg yolk to the mix and used 3 TB of cornstarch w/ 2 TB of flour. After the mix came to a boil I added 2 TB of butter. I threw the extra egg white in with the meringue, but that was just not to waste because the meringue is fine in this recipe. With those changes it really makes this pie five stars.

Sweet Dinner Rolls

Reviewed: Oct. 11, 2009
Yummy! Very soft and light. I never follow the manufactures settings, and it seems to work for me. Added sugar, water, milk, and yeast. Allowed to proof for 10 minutes. Then melted butter, egg, flour and salt. Rolled into balls and place with sides touching on cookie sheet. AND USE BREAD FLOUR! (Yes! I'm shouting!) It will make a world of difference in the texture. Updated - Yesterday made this into a loaf. Best sandwich bread ever! My husband said to throw the old recipe out. Baked at 350 for 30 minutes for that.

Homemade Graham Crackers

Reviewed: Feb. 11, 2010
These were good, but not quite as good as store bought. A little hard to cut in to shapes because the batter was so sticky.

Chocolate Caramel Nut Pie

Reviewed: Dec. 10, 2010
This was an amazing pie! I made it for my hubs b-day, and he loved it :) The only reason I rated it lower than 5 was that I had to drastically cut back on the sugar... added 1/4 cup to fudge and 1/4 cup to cream cheese. With those changes it was perfect. Just to make it more peanutty, and this was just for my hub, I subbed 1/4 cup of peanut butter chips for part of the chocolate chips in the fudge. Also made peanut butter/chocolate ganache for the top and doubled the amount listed to cover the full pie. PS - If you want to make your life easier, take advantage of your microwave! Don't chop or cube the chocolate and butter. Pop it in a bowl and nuke it 30 secs and stir and pop it back for 15 secs at a time stirring until melted. For ganache, microwave the cream until you see a few bubbles and then throw the chocolate in and stir til melted. So much easier! Not like someone's going to eat your pie and say..."Oh, I can taste the radiation!" LOL :) Great recipe and thank you Dayna for helping make my husband happy for his birthday!

Fudge Brownies I

Reviewed: Feb. 13, 2010
Brownies came out amazing. Perfectly fudge-y, gooey, and dense. My father in law ate 3 before we left the house for dinner, and then wanted more for the ride home. Please use this recipe as is! All 4 eggs, all the sugar, and make sure your chocolate is unsweetened. I think that may have been some peoples problems is they may have used semi-sweet chocolate instead. If you want a cake like brownie, you are probably making a mistake picking fudge brownies. I would recommend finding a recipe for that instead of changing this wonderful recipe. I frosted my brownies using "satiny chocolate glaze" from this site. You cannot make brownies like this from a box.

Tomato 'n' Shrimp Pasta

Reviewed: Oct. 12, 2010
This was really great! My almost 2 year old gobbled it up :) The only problem with this recipe was that it really needed some salt! I added maybe 1/4 to 1/2 tsp? I did drain one can of the tomatoes and replaced the liquid with 1/2 cup of white wine. I ended up simmering the sauce a lot longer before I returned the shrimp to the pan because the water for the pasta took like an hour to boil. Didn't want the shrimpies to get over cooked :) Stirred in the fresh basil right before serving so that it wouldn't turn brown. Loved it!

Wine Soaked Mushrooms

Reviewed: Nov. 15, 2009
I made these tonight, but only cooked them for 30 minutes with about 1/4 cup of wine and 1/4 cup of broth. They were still awesome, but I don't really see the need for 2 hours and as much ingredient called for for a side dish. Loved the flavors though.

Marshall Islands Macadamia Nut Pie

Reviewed: May 10, 2010
I made this pie for Mother's Day dinner, and everyone absolutely loved it :) My husband made a point to tell me 3 different times that it was his favorite pie ever! I guess I'll be making this recipe many more times. Only change I made was I doubled the coconut so that I would have a thicker coating on the bottom. I read that some people thought less nuts, but I completely disagree. It's an amazing recipe. Thank you Linda for sharing.

Broiler S'mores

Reviewed: Feb. 5, 2010
My mom used to do this when we were kids :) It was my favorite treat. I've made this for the children I babysat, and now I make it for my husband. I alway leave the oven door cracked open because they love to watch the marshmallows plump and brown (even the hubs) Soon I'll make it for my little girl when she's old enough.

Favorite French Dressing

Reviewed: Jan. 18, 2010
This is some serious salad dressing! We liked it, but I would be scared to give it to guests because it has some major kick.

Green Chicken Enchilada

Reviewed: Feb. 8, 2010
Awesome! This is a great base recipe. With a few adjustments this goes to super awesome. I made these using "slow cooker carnitas" from this site (with chicken). Also added about 1/2 a cup of sour cream to the sauce. I bought a larger can of sauce for a few adjustments. It's easier to make the tortillas pliable before filling. To do this you can add some sauce to a skillet over medium low heat, and then coat the tortillas in the warm sauce one at a time, adding more sauce as needed. Also I like to add a maybe about a 1/3 cup of sauce to moisten the meat. Yummy!

Creole Chicken II

Reviewed: Feb. 5, 2010
Really 4.5. Loved the raisins in this dish! For those of you who didn't have raisins, you've got to at least try it once with it. Didn't change a thing. The chicken was amazingly tender. Served over brown rice with a sweet potato.

Pork Chops and Sauerkraut

Reviewed: Dec. 1, 2009
We liked this. I seasoned the chops with s&p and then coated with mustard before I browned. Also added some beer to it for extra moisture and flavor. Very juicy and yummy.

Brigid's Blackberry Pie

Reviewed: Nov. 15, 2009
Everyone raved! Best pie ever. Perfect consistency. People kept asking how I got a berry pie to not be runny. Will use this recipe again. I was worried about it coming out too sweet so I only used only 1/2 a cup of sugar. It was perfect! I also used frozen berries because it's November, but I can't wait for summer when I can use fresh. I also ended up having to crank up the oven to 350 after first hour to brown the crust. It ended up baking to close to 2 hours before it was perfect. Brushed the crust with an egg yolk and one TB of water and then sprinkled with sugar. So delicious. Thanks for the recipe

Caramel Heavenlies

Reviewed: Oct. 28, 2009
I love these! I just made them, and can't stop nibbling. I used my pizza cutter, and they cut very easily. I think the trick is to wait until they are completely cool....Even though it was so hard to wait! Yummy!!!

Filet Mignon with Rich Balsamic Glaze

Reviewed: Aug. 17, 2010
I made this differently than the recipe stated, but it was amazing!! First I preheated a cast iron skillet until it was smoking hot. Meanwhile I seasoned the steaks with salt and pepper. I wrapped a piece of bacon around the steaks. Seared them both on all sides (minute or less per side). Then I popped them a 400 degree oven for 10 minutes or so. Set the steaks out to rest, and made the glaze in the skillet adding some garlic. Just so you know, your kitchen will get smoky doing this, but my husband said it was totally worth it. Best steak I've ever had or made. Taste your balsamic too before adding sugar as some reviewers suggested. Mine is sweet on its own, so I had no need for it. I think it has something to do with quality?? I also check the sales and buy good when I can.
