Mardi Gras King Cake

Reviewed: Mar. 9, 2012
Wow! This was amazing. I took some to a friend and she made me promise she didn't have to wait another year for mardi gras to come around before she got more. My son doesn't like pecans so I had used almond meal in place of them, and it was incredible. On one of them, I added almond extract to the icing. The only thing odd was the cooking time. I cooked one at a time rather than together as they wouldn't fit together in the oven, and the first one burned as it only took the second one 15 minutes to bake. But I'll definitely be making this for special breakfasts as well as fat tuesday.

Southern Ham and Brown Beans

Reviewed: Oct. 7, 2010
Thank you for your recipe. This was exactly what I was looking for. Perfect southern pintos to accompany fried catfish. These are also good to use leftovers to mash for refried beans for burritos. I didn't have a hamhock so I used a half pound of Petit Jean ham cooked in thru the whole process.

Ham and Beans

Reviewed: Jul. 28, 2010
This was way too sweet for my family. I think though, this recipe has potential as a great side dish for BBQ as a substitute for traditional baked beans. I think cutting back the ham or substituting with bacon to make it more of a side dish would make it really good. I will try it out and post it if it works out. This time, I sauted the onions and ham in 2tbsp butter before adding the rest of the ingredients to the dutch oven . I used 1/2 tsp garlic salt, 1/2 tsp black pepper, and 1/2 tsp sea salt for the season to taste part. And it still could not cut the sweetness. I did cut the cayenne to 1/8tsp because my hubby doesn't like spicy at all. The black pepper was too much for him. I cooked it extra long to make them extra creamy. Just read the baking soda trick. Will try that next time to cut down on cooking time.

Dad's Peach Ice Cream

Reviewed: Jul. 28, 2010
My grandma wanted peach ice cream so I made this for her on Sunday. It was excellent. She was very happy. Your peaches are going to determine how tasty this is I believe. We followed the recipe using the almond extract which I think is what really made this ice cream so good, (besides cooking a good custard.) At the end, we added small chunks of peaches at grandma's request. Some of these were a little tart. I think letting these sit in warm simple syrup while the custard cools would help to keep the chunks from being too tart if you wanted a chunk filled version. Froze really quickly which was nice too. Was a little creamy for me, but I was the only one who thought so. Might try it with a little less cream or some half and half. Thank you for sharing your recipe.

Very Chocolate Ice Cream

Reviewed: Jul. 28, 2010
This recipe was perfect. I wanted homemade ice cream for my daughter's birthday party and we picked this recipe because the eggs were cooked. I followed the recipe exactly. I figured on two hours freezing time and was shocked when it was finished in a half hour. We hadn't even eaten dinner yet. So I stirred in mini chocolate chips, and put in a stainless bowl and put into the freezer until we had finished dinner. Everyone loved it. My father in law asked for the recipe. Thank you for sharing it.

Authentic German Potato Salad

Reviewed: Mar. 1, 2010
This was absolutely amazing. I had some good sausage and wanted a perfect german meal. I made this potato salad exactly as the recipe says to (except for an extra strip of bacon, I live in hog country afterall), red cabbage and apples which I let the sausage simmer in after grilling, and I think it was the best meal I've ever eaten. That was over a year ago. I've made the same meal many times since, and we always look forward to it.

Sausage Bean Stew

Reviewed: Feb. 25, 2010
We thought this was pretty okay. I used one can of rotel and one can diced tomatoes, baby butter beans rather than limas, and frozen corn rather than canned, but basically followed the recipe. It is simple dinner food that I served over brown rice with corn bread on the side. I don't know if I will make it again even though my hubby approved, as we didn't love it, esp. my son. I guess I just prefer a more complex and rich set of flavors.

Apple Crisp IV

Reviewed: Aug. 10, 2009
Good flavor, but too much crisp to apple ratio for me. When I make this next time, I'll cut the crisp part in half and just put on top or under the apples, not both. The only alterations to the recipe I made was half white flour, half whole wheat which was nice for flavor, and my apples were going to sit for a while, so I added a little lemon juice and white sugar to them to keep them from browning too much.

Red Cabbage and Apples

Reviewed: Jul. 27, 2009
This was phenomenal! Made it with grilled keilbasa and hot german potato salad and it was one of the best meals I've ever made. My hubby went nuts for it. The only thing i changed was using bacon grease instead of vegetable oil, and I added the sausage to the simmering cabbage once it was done grilling. Will make many times again. Thank you.
