Classic Red Beans N Rice

Reviewed: Apr. 19, 2009
This is a great recipe. I took the advice of the people who came before me and ditched the ground beef for smoke sausage AND I added a half a pound of maple bacon. Ham hocks, smoked sausage and maple bacon made for a hearty red beans and rice dish. I do recommend Jasmine rice. Even better than my mom's recipe, God rest her soul.

Orange-Glazed Cornish Hens

Reviewed: Jun. 14, 2009
Loved this recipe! The only change I made was, on an impulse, I added a handful of dried cranberries to the rice just before stuffing the hens. Because I love my pepper, next time I will add fresh ground pepper to the rice and on top of the hens to give it a little kick. But this recipe is delicious and I'll definitely use it again.

French Toast II

Reviewed: Sep. 4, 2009
Easy recipe and delicious. Due to my lactose issues, I used soy milk instead of regular milk, and it was still delicious.

Oxtails with Gravy

Reviewed: Sep. 11, 2011
Delicious! Just like my mom used to make it when I was a child. I used Worchester sauce instead a brown sauce and I didn't have Greek seasoning, but otherwise I followed the recipe exactly. Next time I'll let the broth cool and scrape the fat off the top so that my gravy isn't so greasy. But it was still delicious. I plated it on a bed a garlic mashed potatoes. I can't wait until I'm hungry again.

Coconut Bonbons

Reviewed: Jun. 1, 2012
This is a great recipe! The only thing I did differently is I only used about 3/4 of the 2 lb bag of powdered sugar. Just like what others here have suggested, all of my ingredients were at room temperature. I mixed the ingredients with my hand for some time. They were delicious and very rich. They even made the cut to take to work and share. Gonna make them again and see if I can't get my milk/white chocolate swirl on. I miss not having some stashed in the fridge. This recipe makes plenty.

Chilean Empanada

Reviewed: Jun. 2, 2012
My empanadas came out delicious! Next time I won't put the cornstarch in the cup of water. I had to add more seasoning after that. Didn't really need the cornstarch. I also read how bland the dough was so I added oregano, and Italian seasoning to the flour and brown sugar to my butter flavored shortening and milk mixture. Definitely gave a great flavor to the crust of my delicious empanadas. A lot of work but worth it. Got meat leftover so I'll make more tomorrow for work.

Old Fashioned Homemade Egg Nog Ice Cream

Reviewed: Jan. 20, 2013
Since I posted this recipe, my ice cream has had an opportunity to freeze overnight and it is, indeed, the creamiest, riches ice cream I've had the pleasure of enjoying. If you also love butter pecan ice cream, just drop the condensed milk, nutmeg, cinnamon and rum, and sub the sugar with dark brown sugar and throw in 1 1/2 cups of pecans and you''ll have the best butter pecan ice cream ever! I know I did.

Down Home Chitterlings

Reviewed: Jan. 21, 2013
After cleaning 40 lbs of chitlins, I was looking for something quick and easy to get my chitlins cooking. This was easy and my chitlins were delicious; just like my mom and grandma used to make. Thank you!

Old Fashioned Peach Cobbler

Reviewed: Aug. 10, 2013
Exactly how my mom and grandma made peach cobbler. I now cheat by using Pillsbury pie crusts. I only subbed half cup of sugar with a half cup of dark brown sugar and I added half a tbsp of vanilla before pouring half of the peach mixture in the pan. I then like to put a pie crust in the pan to cover as much of the first level as possible; then I poured in the rest and did a lattice top. I made a peach cobbler worthy of a church picnic. This is a great recipe for an old-school Southern peach cobbler; my co-workers love it too!
