Golden Sweet Cornbread

Reviewed: Dec. 14, 2006
This was an easy recipe to make. I thought it was a bit too sweet but my husband, who has a sweet tooth, didn't. Next time, I think I would reduce the sugar just a little bit. I live in the UK and didn't think I'd be able to find cornmeal but was finally able to. For those that use gas ovens in the UK, I cooked mine on a gas mark 6 for about 20 mins. I used a small loaf tin and a smallish round casserole type dish.

Decorator Frosting

Reviewed: Dec. 14, 2006
I thought this was a pretty good recipe. I made some with just vanilla and some with vanilla and almond extracts. I didn't have a mixer and I think that would have helped to make a smoother icing. I mixed mine by hand and it took forever to get most of the lumps out but I still had little ones that didn't look nice when it was piped onto the cookies. I would try this again but use a mixer to get a smoother blend.

Beef or Chicken Marinade

Reviewed: Jul. 31, 2006
I thought this was excellent. I marinated both turkey and beef (a fairly cheap cut) in it for about 6 hours. Then we put them on skewers and grilled them on the BBQ. Our guests raved about them. I had leftover raw meat that I left in the marinade overnight and then cooked that meat in a skillet. The meat was very tender and the flavor was still really good if not better than the night before.

Zucchini Casserole I

Reviewed: Dec. 14, 2002
I made this to go along with the slow cooked cranberry pork loin (from this site) and we really enjoyed it. My husband is not a huge fan of zucchini but he raved about it. The stuffing I used (Pepperidge Farm) stayed pretty hard but added a nice crunch to the casserole. Next time I make it, I'll try a diff brand of stuffing.

Raspberry and Almond Shortbread Thumbprints

Reviewed: Dec. 14, 2002
These were really good. My husband couldn't stop eating them. For variation, I added really finely chopped pecans along with the jam. On some, I drizzled some melted milk chocolate.

Toffee Crunch Cookies

Reviewed: Dec. 14, 2002
I used crushed toffee candy instead of the bits. They turned out pretty good but next time I make them, I'll use the toffee bits and see if that makes a difference in how they taste.

Red Enchilada Sauce

Reviewed: Dec. 14, 2002
This was really good. I did make some changes though. I didn't have salsa on hand so I added a small can of chopped green chilis. I also used a bit more tomato sauce and less water, about 1 cup. of water. I then added 1 chicken boullion cube to boost the flavor. I'm not sure if it made much of a difference but I used Mexican oregano instead of regular.

Buitoni's Garden Pasta Salad

Reviewed: Nov. 20, 2002
This is a very good recipe. Great for a light dinner (served with french bread) or a light lunch. I used sweet red bell pepper instead of green. This would also be nice for potluck dinners or office parties. Would make again.

Ann's Shrimp Etouffee

Reviewed: Aug. 1, 2002
A little time consuming but well worth the effort since my husband loved it. He took leftovers to work and everyone was commenting on how good it smelled. Will make again.

Crab Dip

Reviewed: Jul. 15, 2002
This was really good both warm and cold. I used shallots instead of onions and I didn't use any mayo in it. I served this with sourdough bread.

Cooking Light magazine's Mexican Chicken Casserole

Reviewed: Jul. 15, 2002
I was pretty disappointed with this recipe. It smelled really good while I was making it and then when it was baking but the taste was pretty bland. I ended up adding a bit of chili powder to kind of spice it up. My husband thought it was ok but on the dry side and I thought the corn tortillas made it kind of mushy. Not sure if I will make it again.

Jambalaya II

Reviewed: Jun. 27, 2002
My husband is from England and has never had this dish before so I decided to make it for him. He loved it and raved about it all during the meal. I will definitely make it again.

Cranberry Pork Roast

Reviewed: Jun. 21, 2002
This was pretty good. I reduced the sugar down like others had suggested. As it cooked, the cranberry jelly made like a crust on the pork and that was very good. I shredded up the leftovers and added it with leftover rice and veggies to make like a stew for the next night. Will make again.

Sausage Potato Bake

Reviewed: Jun. 21, 2002
My husband raved over this but I thought it was just ok. I used breakfast sausage (that comes in the 1 pound roll) and crumbled that up as I browned it, then I added it to the potatoes and soup. I'll make it again because my husband liked it so much.

Squash Casserole I

Reviewed: Jun. 18, 2002
Mine turned out a bit watery but maybe I didn't drain my squash well enough. It was still really good and my husband who has never had squash before liked it.

Mushroom Stuffed Chicken Rollups

Reviewed: Jun. 8, 2002
I don't see how these could be made without first pounding the chicken flat. I pound mine flat which made it easier to roll. I also put my mushrooms in the food processor and chopped them really fine. I rolled the chicken and secured with toothpicks and cooking twine. I left out the nutmeg and the cream. I spread a can of cream of mushroom soup in the baking dish before adding the chicken rolls. I served with wild rice.

Daria's Slow Cooker Beef Stroganoff

Reviewed: Jun. 8, 2002
This was pretty good. I served it over noodles. It had a certain bite to it and I think it was the white wine. Next time I will leave that out and see if it makes a difference.

Spinach and Mushroom Enchiladas

Reviewed: Jun. 8, 2002
I didn't drag my tortillas thru the oil or the sauce. I rolled mine and then brushed the sauce over all the rollups then I poured the remaining sauce over them. I also only used one can which was more than enough. These were really good and I think next time I'll add chicken or shrimp just for variety.

Annie's Fruit Salsa and Cinnamon Chips

Reviewed: Apr. 22, 2002
This was a fabulous recipe. I made this for a BBQ and it went over very well. Everyone loved the cinnamon chips and by the end of the night, they were all gone. My husband wants me to make them for the guys at work. This is definitely a keeper.

Bev's Chocolate Pie

Reviewed: Apr. 14, 2002
This was very good. Mine wasn't runny at all. My husband has never had this type of pie before (I guess they don't make it in England) and he ate half of it in one night. Will make again.
