Roasted Asparagus and Garlic

Reviewed: Mar. 3, 2011
I absolutely love this recipe, I omitted the wine and use dried thyme instead of fresh and salted a bite when done. I also cooked a little longer until the garlic carmelized more, it was fabulouse! Will definitely make again!

Breakfast Pies

Reviewed: Oct. 10, 2011
These came out great, I changed it up a bit as I made mine vegetarian adding mushrooms, spinach and red pepper. I also mixed some cheese into the egg mixture in addition to toppping the mixture with eggs, came out delicious and this makes for a quick easy portable breakfast treat. I made these the night before but stopped short of adding the egg mixture and finished that the next morning, came out great!

Japanese Chicken Wings

Reviewed: Feb. 9, 2011
My husband and I were snowed in due to a blizzard so I figured what better comfort food than chicken wings?!! I almost followed the directions to a tee, except I substituted Splenda for the sugar and used half butter half olive oil to fry it in. They came out SO yummy and crispy, next time I will cut back on the sugar a bit so they aren't so syrupy sweet but the flavor was really good!

Apple Spice Cake

Reviewed: Nov. 8, 2010
This is a very yummy spicey cake, I basically followed the recipe, except I omitted the raisins since I did not have any. Cake was flavorful and moist without them. I also made in a bundt cake pan and sprinkled Paula Deen's Cinnamon Sugar (grinder) on the top of the batter before baking to add a layer of crunch to the cake. Also, used 1/2 butter, 1/2 margarine and use 1 cup of white sugar and 1 cup organic granulated sugar that has more molasses to it but not quite brown sugar. i also omitted dusting cake with sugar.

Ice Cream Cone Treats

Reviewed: Oct. 5, 2009
These were pretty good but next time I will bake the cupcakes seperately and "stuff" them in the cones later. Also, will go the extra mile and do the icing from scratch as store bought is just not good enough and the extra effort is well worth it! Also, will melt some chocolate and fill the bottom of the cone with it for an added treat!

Apple Raisin French Toast Strata

Reviewed: Nov. 17, 2008
This is a really yummy recipe, I made it almost to the tee of the recipe. Instead of dicing the cream cheese I did slabs and tried to cover as much area as possible. My suggestion for the cream cheese is to freeze it so that it is firm before cutting and then dice it for a more even spread. It doesn't have to be frozen solid but just enough to make it easier to manage and use a very sharp knife. I sprinkled brown sugar, cinnamon and about 1 1/2 oz. of raisins on the apples, then a little more brown sugar on top on the last layer of bread. After 45 mins of baking I popped under the broiler for a couple mins (watch closely!) to crisp up the top and dry out a bit more as it was still a tad too wet. Delicioso!

Aaron's Missouri Burger

Reviewed: Aug. 15, 2011
I really liked this receipe, I made 2 small changes, I reduced the sugar by half and used spicy brown mustard rather than honey mustard cause I did not have any honey mustard on hand. Very good burgers and they definitely need to be chilled before cooking or they will fall apart.

Sweet Sausage Rolls

Reviewed: Oct. 10, 2011
These came out delicious nice contrast of sweet and salty, I prepared it exactly as the recipe states. Another great thing is you can make these the day before and just cover and refrigerate and pop in the oven when you are ready to make them. So quick and easy!

Chicken Wings Fricassee

Reviewed: Nov. 1, 2010
The wings came out very tasty with a flavorful, sticky gravy that was very good. This however, is a messy dish that is kind of difficult to eat so may not be good for a dinner party! Definitely will make this again.

Southern Fried Cabbage

Reviewed: Nov. 1, 2010
This cabbage is very good, i like other reviewers cooked the cabbage in the bacon grease after removing the bacon and added the bacon back in at the end,crumbled on top so that it would maintain its crispness. I also cooked the cabbage much longer than 5 minutes as I do not like it crisp. I prefer it well wilted.

Czech Roast Pork

Reviewed: Nov. 1, 2010
This pork was delicious, came out as moist as can be and had great flavor! I accidentally over peppered the meat, used 2 tablespoons instead of 2 teaspoons, but I had split it between white pepper and mixed up pepper, so it didn't overpower and actually added a nice spicy note, will definitely make this again. I used Saffron flavored Goya seasoning instead of salt and it was superb!

Slow Cooker Fruit, Nuts, and Spice Oatmeal

Reviewed: Oct. 5, 2009
I guess I should have read more of the reviews on this recipe because I too ended up with a burnt crockpot full of shockingly tasteless mush, that reminded me alot of chunky mud! Will try again but will cook for a shorter period of time. Also, definitely, add the nuts towards the end or they will have the taste and consistency of beans when they are done.

Slow Cooker Creamy Potato Soup

Reviewed: Oct. 27, 2008
My family really liked this soup, it is a nice basic recipe, I did add about a tablespoon or more of extra chicken boullion for more flavor and like other reviewers I added the bacon as a garnish and not as a part of the soup. came out very good.

Chocolate Cheesecake Flan

Reviewed: Jul. 11, 2008
I followed this recipe to the note and it came out very good. Had some issues getting it out of the cake pan so the edges ended up kindof rough but it tasted great. Also, make sure you cool this completely before refrigerating, otherwise your caramel will crack and alot will stick to the pan. Overall a wonderful treat with not much work!

Strawberry-Mango Mesclun Salad

Reviewed: Jul. 11, 2008
This salad is absolutely fabulous, I brought it to work for a "food day" and everyone loved it. I too substituted olive oil for the canola oil and added extra balsamic vinegar to the dressing for more zing. I also used Almond Accents Butter Toffer Glazed Almonds and sprinkled Feta cheese on top for extra zip. Fantastic! Definitely a redo!

Mid-Eastern Chicken Thighs

Reviewed: Mar. 3, 2011
I made this recipe with everything minus the wine as my husband doesnt care for wine braised meats, recipe was just ok, had to really amp up the spices as the recipe did not call for enough. Also this recipe badly needs salt! Juices were just ok but were very thin so had hubby make into a gravy, will make again but with changes such as adding more salt, maybe even brining the chicken pieces.

Brown Sugar Meatloaf

Reviewed: Nov. 1, 2010
I love this meatloaf, tastes exactly like my mother in law's, which I love, and it is easy and quick to make. Note: Be carfull when serving this meatloaf as there tends to be a ton of drippings and sauce in the bottom of the pan and it can get messy when serving.

Peach Cobbler

Reviewed: Nov. 1, 2010
I made this dairy free for a family friend that is lactose intolerant and you couldn't tell the difference. Used margerine and Lactose free milk and came out great. Was crispy on top just like it should be and had a wonderful, sweet buttery flavor! add a pinch of nutmeg and cinnamon to both the batter and the peach mixture and it is perfection!

Baked Mushroom Thighs

Reviewed: Jun. 11, 2010
This recipe came out really great and I only had to tweek it a little. I added salt and pepper to both the bread crumbs and the sauce. I also added garlic powder to the sauce before I coated the chicken with it. Then, I sauteed some onions and mushrooms in the saucepan, added a little salt and pepper then added the remaining sauce and reduced. The chicken got nice a crunchy and was great served over rice with a bit of the sauce on it. Definitely a redo and the family loved it!
