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.

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!

Heavenly Chipped Chocolate and Hazelnut Cheesecake

Reviewed: Sep. 26, 2009
I have made this cheesecake several times, always to rave reviews. It's the best cheesecake I believe I've ever had. I initially tried the recipe so I could use up a bottle of Frangelico that I had. I always use chocolate grahams for the crust, and I think this makes it better. The hazelnuts are a pain to work with, but oh so good. I don't think I used quite as many as I was supposed to last time, and I just put the chocolate topping on and then sprinkled with chopped nuts to make it a little easier. Magnifique!

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.

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.

Rhinelander Lentil Soup

Reviewed: Dec. 30, 2009
I have to admit I was very leery of lentil soup - I'd never had it before but just happened to have some lentils in my pantry that needed to be used. I did make several changes to the recipe, but it turned out just delicious. I did not use the olive oil, as the bacon drippings provided enough grease to saute the veggies in. Left out the flour and nutmeg, and substituted 28 oz. crushed tomatoes for the potatoes. I also added just under a cup of red wine. Such a rich flavor, and very economical to make. The soup is so hearty, my meat eating man even enjoyed this. I'm hooked on lentil soup!

Uncle Dank's Gumbo

Reviewed: Apr. 5, 2010
Very tasty. I used the dark meat from the Easter turkey and used the turkey bones to make a rich stock. I used a good quality spicy smoked sausage. I didn't feel like deveining the cleaning all those shrimp, so I left them out, but I'm sure they would be a delicious addition. Also, I left out the okra. My Louisiana born father was pretty skeptical of my adjustments to the recipe, but I figure gumbo is one of those one-pot dishes where you just use what you have on hand, right? It turned out great.

Spicy South of the Border Spinach Cheese Dip

Reviewed: Jul. 12, 2010
I made this for my Bunco party, and was asked for the recipe several times. I loved that it was so easy to make, and actually made quite a bit. The dip was delicious and spicy - a welcome change from the traditional spinach dip with the mayo, water chestnuts, etc. I did substitute two cans of Rotel for the tomatoes and chilis. I may use mild Rotel next time, depending on who's eating. It was great, but definitely too spicy for kids. Also used only 8 oz. of a Mexican shredded cheese blend and it was plenty. I also added a few cloves of minced garlic. The tiny bit I had leftover reheated nicely in the microwave the next day. I'll definitely make this one again, probably sooner than later because I'm still craving it!

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.

Orange, Walnut, Gorgonzola and Mixed Greens Salad with Fresh Citrus Vinaigrette

Reviewed: Aug. 19, 2009
This salad was absolutely delicious, and very elegant. I made it for Christmas Eve dinner along with Smothered Beef Gorgonzola, and everyone loved it.

Paul Bunyan Burgers

Reviewed: Sep. 9, 2010
We love Paul Bunyan burgers! We just eat them as hamburger steaks, without the cheese and bun. I like mine with a squirt of ketchup, but boyfriend likes A-1. I have made these many times, and have tweaked the recipe a little. I quit adding the bacon, because it didn't add that much flavor and it was just more calories and work. I use a can of mushrooms, lots of chopped garlic, a little Cajun seasoning, Tabasco, and a few tablespoons of bread crumbs to keep it all together. Boyfriend says it's like meatloaf on the grill. Yum. Everyone, including toddler, likes these.

Chicken Tortilla Soup I

Reviewed: Dec. 1, 2011
This is absolutely delicious. I love all the veggies - I use the entire can of corn and hominy. I add a sqeeze of fresh lime juice on each serving, and this gives the broth such a great flavor. Also, frying your own corn tortilla strips is totally work the extra effort. Their texture hold up so much better than plain chips.

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!

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.

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!

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.

Pork Roast With The World's Best Pork Loin Rub

Reviewed: May 28, 2013
This was delicious, and so easy. I omitted the white sugar, used only 1/4 C of brown sugar, and 1/3 of all the rest of the spices. This was the perfect amount of rub for one roast. Cooked a little longer than the recipe indicated to get to proper internal temperature, but the roast was moist and tender. Picky man loved this, and said he wants this in the regular rotation. This pork roast is vastly superior to those pre-marinated ones from the store, and it cost way less and without all that sodium and preservatives. Will definitely make again.

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!

Feta Cheese Ball

Reviewed: Dec. 27, 2010
This was delicious, and it tided everyone over before our Christmas dinner. I halved the recipe, as we only had 8 people, but kept the 4 oz. of feta. Served with Sun Dried Tomato and Basil Wheat Thins, this was a big hit. It almost tastes like Boursin, which is wonderful. I loved that I already had everything to make it, and it was a cinch to throw everything in my Kitchenaid mixer and let it do the work. This ones goes in the permanent file!
