Best Baked French Fries

Reviewed: Jan. 28, 2013
Cripsy and delicious! I cut back some on the olive oil, and didn't notice any difference. Also added one teaspoon onion powder. You really can't taste the sugar. I've tried many other recipes that are baked instead of fried, and this one really delivers. I was very impressed with my oven fries! Definitely going in the permanent file.

Honey Mustard Dream Delight Pork Chops

Reviewed: Jun. 11, 2009
Yum. These have become a summer standard at our house. I don't put quite as much spice on the chops as the recipe calls for. In fact, I just mix up a batch of the rub and keep it in jar in my pantry so I always have some on hand. Also, I just use whatever mustards I have on hand, but the honey and horseradish are a must.

Blue Bacon Stuffed Mushrooms

Reviewed: Dec. 28, 2009
These were phenomenal. I made the recipe just as written, and the filling was enough to stuff 16 oz. of fresh button mushrooms. Perfect complement to our Christmas feast. My sister said they were the best stuffed mushrooms she had ever had, and my picky man said they were his favorite dish of the meal. Delicious! This one is going in the permenant file.

Peppermint Bark

Reviewed: Dec. 23, 2013
I was distracted while making this, and messed the whole thing up, and it came out perfectly! I failed to grease my glass dish and didn't line it with wax paper, I put the white chocolate layer on the bottom and forgot the mint extract, so I put 1/2 t. in the top dark chocolate layer. It came out of the pan just fine after chilling in the fridge for an hour. I used a 12 oz. bag of both white chocolate chips and semisweet chocolate chips, so I used an 8.5x11 inch pan. I also had a box of candy canes from last year, which I wanted to use up and that's why I chose this recipe. About 10 canes crushed covered the top nicely. This is really yummy, and very simple to make. This is definitely a repeat for Christmases to come.

Basil, Roasted Peppers and Monterey Jack Cornbread

Reviewed: Oct. 20, 2011
I love this cornbread! I've been making it for several years, and it never fails. I've used different kinds of cheese, fresh off the cob and frozen corn, fresh and jarred peppers,and it always turn out great. It even reheats nicely in the oven. Yum! This one's a keeper.

Death by Chocolate Mousse

Reviewed: Aug. 10, 2010
Yum, this is so decadent and delicious. I used a prepared chocolate crust, and had enough mousse left over to fill four parfait cups. I actually preferred the mousse on it's own, but the pie topped with whipped cream (and chocolate shavings!) was pretty darn good too. This is incredibly rich, so some people had a hard time finishing their pie. I used the food processor method, and it was so easy.

Savory Garlic Marinated Steaks

Reviewed: Jun. 11, 2013
This is very good. I've been using this marinade for a few years, and it is my go-to recipe when we grill steaks. I always use a NY strip. The SO, who is a meat purist and typically doesn't want his steak marinated, loves this. Leftovers are fantastic in a romaine salad with blue cheese crumbles and a balsamic vinaigrette.

Grandma Jeanette's Amazing German Red Cabbage

Reviewed: Oct. 15, 2013
Oh my gosh, this was delicious! I had a craving for cabbage, which I never cook and my man won't eat, and found this recipe. I made it for a family gathering around Octoberfest, and I'm so glad I tried it! Healthy and so yummy. I put everything in my crockpot on low for about 4 hours, and it was perfect. And so easy! I only had to stir it a few times, and I had to stop myself from eating it all before my dinner party. A little cloves go a long way IMO, so I only used 1/8 teaspoon, and it was perfect. Also subbed applesauce for the sliced apples, and added half a sliced onion. Will definitely make again!

Chicken Wild Rice Soup I

Reviewed: Sep. 29, 2009
This is one of my favorite soups. During the winter months I make soup every Sunday, and this is in regular rotation. My boyfriend prefers plain, honest food, and I would rather eat something with a little more pizazz and sophistication. This recipe fits the bill on both counts. I love the addition of the curry powder.

Basic Truffles

Reviewed: Dec. 14, 2012
These were amazing. I have to admit I was intimidated by the process, but they turned out great. I found it to be key to pour the ganache in a shallow dish - that way it cools consistently. It was quite the undertaking to roll these into little balls. Next time I will use a melon baller to make them all the same size. I did three batches over 2 days - rolled some in finely chopped walnuts, others in sprinkles (for the kids) or coconut. I also added mint extract to one batch, and rolled those in powdered sugar. Last batch was Kahlua, rolled in cocoa powder. Everyone raved over these - from my 87 year old neighbor down to the 1 year old. I'm making again for our Christmas Eve gathering, and to give to neighbors as gifts. A keeper, for sure.

Swanson® Braised Beef with Shallots and Mushrooms

Reviewed: May 5, 2009
This is delicious! My meat and potatoes man and I loved it. I did not add the parsley or lemon zest, but otherwise made the dish as written. I've given this recipe to a few people, and it's always well received.

Brooke's Best Bombshell Brownies

Reviewed: Sep. 8, 2009
I've been looking for my go-to brownie recipe, and this is it! Very rich, very chocolatey. They have perfect brownie texture, with flaky crust on the top, and fudgy interior. They're super easy to make, and I almost always have the ingredients on hand. I've made these a couple of times for brownies a la mode, and my family just raves about them. Yum!

Smothered Filet Mignon

Reviewed: Jul. 14, 2009
Oh, this was wonderful. My boyfriend always orders steak medallions gorgonzola at our favorite fancy restaurant, and this was almost just like that. I made this for Christmas Eve dinner, and everyone thought it was divine.

Slow Cooker Cilantro Lime Chicken

Reviewed: Jan. 8, 2013
We loved this dish. It was the easiest thing to make. I put frozen chicken breast, a can of Rotel, sliced onion, tons of garlic, along with the taco seasoning and lime juice, into the crock pot for about 4 hours on high. The chicken was incredibly tender and shredded so easily. I bet I didn't spend 5 minutes total making this, and it was delicious, cheap and healthy. It also makes a ton, so we had leftovers several times. What else can you ask for? Definitely going in the regular rotaton. I wish I had a whole repertoire of recipes like this!

Grilled Vegetable Salad with Fresh Herb Vinaigrette

Reviewed: Aug. 5, 2014
This was absolutely wonderful. Everyone loved it at the party, and I was asked for the recipe several times. I used only basil instead of all the other herbs, and grilled asparagus, yellow squash, red bell peppers and a red onion. Definitely a repeat.

Green Bean Casserole I

Reviewed: Apr. 5, 2010
This blows the canned soup version of GBC out of the water. My sister and mom insist on that version every year at Thanksgiving, and I am going to change thier minds with this version. It's just so much better! I omitted the sugar and topped the casserole with Town House cracker crumbs mixed with a tablespoon of melted butter. Sinful, but delicious. I'll make this again for sure.

Slow Cooker Taco Soup

Reviewed: Sep. 29, 2009
This taco soup is awesome! We eat this pretty regularly. So easy, good for you, inexpensive...what else can you ask for? I use ground turkey when I make this, and even BF who (always) prefers beef loves it. I've made in the crock pot and also on top of the stove - great both ways, but don't use as much water as it calls for. I find if I cook it on top of the stove it thickens up a little with time. Love the addition of chips, cheese and sour cream.

Smoky Chipotle Hummus

Reviewed: Apr. 18, 2012
I love this hummus. I served it with crudites and crackers for a Ladies' Night In, and everyone liked it. I did not add any water, but probably doubled the olive oil. I roasted my own red pepper, and that was plenty of flavor at a fraction of the cost. Also, I only had dehydrated sundried tomatoes on hand, so I soaked those in some water before adding to the mix. Oh, and I used 2 chipotles. It was spicy, but not prohibitively so. It does make a ton, but I used the leftovers in a wrap with feta and veggies for lunches throughout the week. Delish!
