Curry Pork Tenderloin

Reviewed: Sep. 25, 2008
Alright here is what I did. As I say usually I give the recipe a fair shake but some things didn't sit right with me for flavors. I didn't even read the reviews until after I made the recipe. I certainly didn't bread the pork..tenderloin is naturally juicy. I cooked the pork first in a skillet with the lid on. Then I let the meat rest with the lid on. Second I didn't add the wine. Mostly because we are a dry house and I am not big on wine flavor. Mushrooms? nah..too earthy for this exotic dish...they get lost in all the flavors going on. Since it was the day before grocery day I didn't have coconut milk in stock so I used a can of evaporated milk and put some pur coconut extract in it (1 tsp) I also added more curry powder, paprika, red pepper, and more peanut butter. My husband said to feel free to make this any time. There will be a lot of sauce the point is to put it over the rice. Also dont overcook pork because it is high in fat it will dry out. Like I said before put the lid on and let it rest so the juices dont come out.

Pesto-Stuffed Pork Chops with Caramelized Onions

Reviewed: Sep. 29, 2008
Oooo such a tasty meal...I made the pesto fresh however with a recipe off of this site. Also works great with thin boneless porkchops. You dont have to cut them in the middle just fold it over the pesto like a roll up. Went really well with a simple side dish of rice and steamed veggies.

Red Velvet Cake IV

Reviewed: Sep. 26, 2008
Ah bliss! This is red velvet cake. Being a southerner (transplant though I may be) It is a delightful cake. I have been up and down the east coast and across the United States (being Air Force Officer brat myself) I have been in many fine establishments and known many Southern Gentlewomen who have this exact recipe. Except the white chocolate spin on it. Now while cream cheese frosting may indeed not be "traditional" as tone reviewer put it it is now a new Southern tradition. As the red devils food cake is known for its tang so is cream cheese which compliments it. Sometimes newer is better. This recipe doesn't claim to be old fashion or traditional. I love a new spin on an old favorite. I can name at least 300 Southern bakeries that use cream cheese frosting on thier red velvet cake. Why because I am a aspiring baker who is almost ready to open her own. I will be using this recipe. My husband is a Sheriff and his whole dept loved them (with quite a few Southerners in there by the way) They said it brought them back to thier child hood. Also as a note cream cheese has not become traditional until late last century because of refrigeration. Thank you for the wonderful recipe!

Chocolate Fudge Cupcakes

Reviewed: Sep. 29, 2008
Loved the cupcakes. I didn't have trouble with collapsing...that is usually due to opening the oven too soon because the cold air makes the cupcakes collapse. If you dont want small cucakes fill it 3/4 full or a little more. Make sure you grease the top of the muffin tins in case they rise too much that way it doesn't stick. What is really important is to make sure you cream together the sugar and butter very well. If you dont you wont have a rising agent. Made these with the Wedding Cake frosting on this sight only I made fresh raspberry syrup in the cupcakes and the frosting. Delish but not the right frosting. Needs something lighter or something really chocolaty...would go with some of the other suggestions next time.

Cranberry Glop

Reviewed: Dec. 2, 2008
I wasn't really impressed with this dish nor was my family. Maybe it because we were having stuffing which was the same consistency. I did make fresh cranberry sauce just in case and boy I am sure glad I did. It still sitting in the fridge and I rarely have leftovers!

German Rye Bread

Reviewed: Jan. 25, 2009
I love this rye bread. I happen to love caraway so I doubled it. As far as the dough goes you don't really have to worry because rye is a wet dough. The more flour you add the worse it will turn out. I put the entire recipe in one loaf pan and then used it for homemade reubens. Delish!!

Abby's Chicken Rollatini

Reviewed: Oct. 23, 2008
Would you believe Walmart in our area ran out of boneless chicken breast? I subbed it with boneless pork..mmm tasty. I didn't mind the garlic. My husband loved it. Also loved how light it is on the stomach.

Easiest, Most Delicious Meringue Buttercream

Reviewed: Sep. 29, 2008
Make sure your bowl and beaters are free of grease. Also room temperature eggs are best. If you have a gas stove you can put the eggs in the oven the day before because the piolet light will make them the perfect temp. Also you can use stabilzing agents. Wonderful recipe. Definately will use this over and over again.

Wedding Cake Frosting

Reviewed: Sep. 29, 2008
I have definately had better buttercream. I did improve it by using raspberries and a cup of sugar and 1/4 water to make syrup. Let it cool and poured into the frosting. Had a beautiful fresh raspberry flavor. Husband enjoyed it. I didn't really like it on its own but great for a base of adding fresh fruit flavors to it.

Moist Cinnamon Rolls

Reviewed: Oct. 27, 2008
I have NEVER EVER EVER had cinamon rolls this good. I doubled the recipe not realizing how many this made. They lasted 3 days and omg they were still very moist and ewwy-gooey. My stepson ate so many he couldn't eat dinner!

Old-Fashioned Chicken And Slick Dumplings

Reviewed: Sep. 25, 2008
I was very happy with the way the recipe turned out. Only thing I ommited were the sweet potatoes because I didn't have them on hand. Might try that though I believe carrots and even peas would give it enough richness. My family loved the dumplings. This is my first try making dumplings and they turned out beautifully. Husband said they brought bake great memories when he was a kid.

Authentic Thousand Island Dressing

Reviewed: Jan. 25, 2009
I have to say I absolutely love this recipe! Very tasty and I will be doing this again! The pinkish hue in other recipes comes from the roasted red peppers.

Turkey Brine

Reviewed: Dec. 2, 2008
The turkey was delicous without any dry spots! One hint I did want to give...I used a cooler (you know the kind used for picnics) It solves the refrigeration problem. If that doesn't work use a rubbermaid tote!

Amazingly Good Eggnog

Reviewed: Dec. 2, 2008
I made this for Thanksgiving and it was a huge hit. I doubled it except the eggs. The result was great. The kids hated eggnog before because they thought it was too thick. Also I used Heavy Cream instead of Light Cream, I think that helped since I only used 12 eggs instead of 24. Thanks so much for the recipe!

Burrito Pie

Reviewed: Oct. 27, 2008
Loves this twist on lasanga! Didn't use the olives. Also did season the meat with taco spices. Served on a bed of lettuce I shredded and topped with a heaping spoonful of sourcream and homeade salsa. Delish!

French Onion Soup V

Reviewed: Sep. 30, 2008
Great soup. Added worchestershire for taste and coloring. wasn't cloudy at all. did do the wine although I normally wouldn't def. adds demension to the flavor. this is supposed to be a sweet and lightly flavored soup because it is soaked up in the bread and is usually with a salty cheese like swiss. I made my beef stock homeade and my french baguettes homeade off of this sight...yummy! I cooked my onions on low for an hour and used red onions because they are universally known to have a deeper flavor.
