Southern-Style Buttermilk Fried Chicken

Reviewed: Oct. 2, 2011
I used boneless skinless chicken breasts and cut them into chunks. My chicken marinated overnight, and though the double-dipping was work, it was totally worth it. The chicken was tender, the breading was flavorful and crisp. I didn't bother to measure the cooking oil, but there wasn't much. I think I may make this again tomorrow night!

Garlic Potatoes

Reviewed: Sep. 3, 2011
These potatoes were so good! I cut back on the milk a little and added sour cream and butter, and used dried parsley flakes instead of fresh but the potatoes were still very flavorful. Perfection, and I will definitely make again.

Angel Chicken Pasta

Reviewed: Nov. 24, 2011
I.Love.This!!! I highly recommend doubling the sauce, with the exception of the Italian dressing (I use a whole pack and a little less than half of a second - too salty if I use 2 whole packs). I've made with both white wine, and with a chicken broth substituted for the wine, and either way is magnificent. Easy meal that my entire family loves, and I've recommended it to several people. And don't sweat it if you can't find cream cheese with chives; I've made it with regular cream cheese and the taste was still delicious.

Slow Cooker Turkey Breast

Reviewed: Nov. 7, 2011
Quick and easy! I started the slow cooker at 7 am and left it on high for an extra 15 minutes -this was an accident- before switching to low. My crock pot wasn't tall enough to accomodate the turkey without tilting it onto its side, though I did right it after 4-5 hours. Absolutely delicious! I think I spent more time thinking about cooking it right (this was my first turkey, in any form, ever) than actually getting it done. I will make this again and again.

Pork Chops with Delicious Gravy

Reviewed: Feb. 22, 2009
I was a little iffy when my boyfriend said he wanted pork chops for Valentine's Day, but I went along with it and dug around for days before finding this recipe. SOOO glad I ignored the negative reviews!!! I made it almost completely according to direction (added fresh minced garlic to the butter), and even after he missed his train and I had to refrigerate and reheat, the chops were excellent. I served with mashed potatoes and sweet corn, and we were beyond happy with our Valentine's meal. In fact, I'm so pleased that I'm making a larger dose for a family dinner tonight!

Oregon Salmon Patties

Reviewed: Nov. 25, 2011
Very good! I used canned salmon but didn't use the juice. I sauteed fresh garlic in olive oil, used whole grain crackers, butter Crisco shortening and dried parsley, and added a little Old Bay seasoning - my whole family loved them, right down to my toddler! I served with baked tater tots and they gobbled it right up. I will definitely make this again.

Cranberry Sauce

Reviewed: Nov. 7, 2011
This was wonderful! I followed another reviewers tip and used 1/2C white sugar and 1/2C brown sugar. For some reason my cranberries never popped, so I wound up cooking them for roughly 15-18 minutes. Of all the things on my plate, I have to admit that I liked this best. I can't wait to make this for my family on Thanksgiving. So easy - I will never open another can of store-bought cranberry sauce!

Slow Cooker Beef Stroganoff I

Reviewed: Nov. 3, 2011
Fantastic, with a few changes! This was my first homemade beef stroganoff and it will definitely not be my last. I followed Jilly's changes: double golden mushroom soup; double meat; double water; added 1/2 packet of onion soup mix, a beef bullion cube, fresh cracked black pepper and garlic powder; added sauteed portabello mushrooms during last half hour; added a good scoop of sour cream as I stirred in the cream cheese; served over wide egg noodles. I ran short on time so I started the slow cooker on high for 2 hours, then turned it down to low for another 2.5 hours. Absolute perfection, and there was not a bite left afterward.

Buffalo Chicken Dip

Reviewed: Oct. 2, 2011
Love this! I've made it a few times now and have gotten lots of compliments. I've used both Texas Pete and Frank's Red Hot, and both are delicious. I add a little more hot sauce because we like it spicy, and it is so good with wheat crackers. I do use store bought shredded cheese but have never had any problems. I skipped the slow cooker and poured the stove-heated mixture into a 8 in sq baking dish and put into a preheated oven on 350 for 20-25 minutes. Perfection.

Best Ever Blueberry Cobbler

Reviewed: Oct. 2, 2011
My first cobbler ever was a huge hit with this recipe. I used 4C blueberries and added 1/2t cinnamon to both the crust and filling mixtures. Baked up perfectly and gave a my family a whole new respect for blueberries.

Lemon Garlic Tilapia

Reviewed: Oct. 2, 2011
This was an extremely easy and delicious tilapia meal. I followed other reviewers suggestions and sauteed the garlic and parsley in the butter. I used a little more than the recipe called for because I love garlic. I lined up my fillets and poured the lemon juice over them, followed by the butter blend. My fillets took the full half hour, but I made 6 in a 9x13 pan, slightly overlapping. They were absolutely delicious and I will definitely make again. The only thing I may do differently next time would be to mix the lemon juice with the butter mixture, but just to spread the garlic easier.

Crispy Potato Pancakes

Reviewed: Oct. 2, 2011
So good!!! I haven't had potato pancakes since I was a teenager and had certainly never made my own, but this recipe was so worth the wait! I changed the recipe to 4 servings but didn't get the egg halo noted by another reviewer. I peeled the potatoes and rinsed well before putting them through the food processor. I dumped them from there into a fine strainer and doused with water and just let it drain out. I skipped the onion. The recipe, for me, actually yielded 6 servings. This one will definitely stay in the rotation!

Downeast Maine Pumpkin Bread

Reviewed: Nov. 17, 2012
I've never made pumpkin bread before but will definitely do it again - this was SO GOOD! I made the following alterations: 1/2 C oil, 1/2 C homemade applesauce, 1 C white sugar, 1 1/4 C (eyeballed) brown sugar, 1 t homemade vanilla, and I didn't use canned pumpkin as I needed to use up a few pumpkins and broke one down into puree. Came up with 2 3x7 loaves and 12 muffins, 6 of which my fiance ate before I could stop him. Took a few to work and there was almost a fight over them, and I've been asked to make them for Thanksgiving. Can't wait!

Chef John's Crab Cakes

Reviewed: Oct. 14, 2012
Oh my word, these crab cakes are absolutely delicious! I made them almost exactly per the recipe (forgot the salt, but we're not salt people anyway so none of us missed it), and they have to be the best crab cakes I've ever had. This is literally just crab meat and a tiny bit of binder to hold it together, which is why refrigeration is key. The patties hold their shape better when they are cold. Served tonight with corn and sweet potato fries, and they were a huge hit. Next time I may change it up with extra Old Bay and Ritz crackers, but the crab cakes were amazing as is.

Earthquake Pie Crust

Reviewed: Nov. 25, 2011
Good tender, flaky crust. I had a little difficulty in getting it to form a ball, and I didn't make much time to chill it so it was a little sticky through the rolling, but I stuck with it. So glad I did! The end result in my cherry pie was fantastic, flaky and tender, and melts in your mouth. Well worth the effort!

Mom's Macaroni and Cheese

Reviewed: Nov. 7, 2011
Perfect. My first time trying my hand at macaroni and cheese turned out perfectly and I hand it to this recipe. I used a little more than 1C of shredded sharp cheddar cheese but followed the rest of the recipe to a T, and the taste was amazing. I immediately called my mom and told her that I would take over making the mac and cheese for Thanksgiving. My boyfriend actually whispered that mine was better than my mom's, and anyone who had had her mac and cheese knows that's a real compliment!

Todd's Famous Blueberry Pancakes

Reviewed: Nov. 7, 2011
Very good recipe! I've never made blueberry pancakes from scratch and this was a good way to start. I used fresh blueberries, probably a little more than 8 oz but my family is a blueberry-loving clan. They were very good and fluffy, but something was missing. I think next time I may add a touch of vanilla or cinnamon and see what I come up with. But I will make them again!

Breaded Chicken Fingers

Reviewed: Oct. 2, 2011
I've given this recipe to so many of my friends! I marinate my chicken overnight in the buttermilk mixture. I added cayenne pepper and garlic powder to the breading mixture (I didn't measure, just added by eye) and they fried beautifully. The chicken was very tender and the seasoning was absolutely mouth-watering.

Pasta Bake

Reviewed: Oct. 2, 2011
Really, really good! I couldn't find mostaccioli pasta and substituted penne. I forgot an onion and mushrooms so I just worked without them. It was so easy to make this that I felt like I was missing a step. I love melted mozzarella and this made the perfect meal . My toddler demanded seconds! Next time I'll be sure to get the missing ingredients. This was a very welcome change to spaghetti.

Easy Baked Tilapia

Reviewed: Aug. 27, 2011
Quick and easy tilapia dish! I didn't use exact measurements; just poured 1/2t garlic salt, sprinkled it over the fillets until I decided there was enough (I don't like a lot of salt and was worried about using in conjunction with the Old Bay). I sprinkled the Old Bay liberally and added a dash of garlic powder (love garlic!). My family of non-fish lovers enjoyed it and I will definitely be making this again.
