Bacon Wrapped Smokies

Reviewed: May 9, 2012
I have been making these exactly this way for at least 10 years. Everytime I make them, they are always the first thing to go!! Everyone loves them and I always have several people ask me for the "recipe". They are always amazed at how simple they are to make. I would give 10 stars if I could.

Corn Fritters

Reviewed: Sep. 15, 2011
This recipe is exactly the same as an old recipe my great grandmother had. We have been eating these since I was a just little. We always use left over corn cut off the cob, it gives the fritters a great taste and we dip them in warm syrup...mm delish. Our recipe calls for 1/4 c sugar, 2 eggs and no milk. We sprinkle with a little powdered sugar also. Makes a great dessert with a scoop of vanilla ice cream.

Egg in a Boat

Reviewed: Sep. 30, 2010
My mom made these for us when we were kids (middle 40's now) and I made them for my kids-we still have them on occassion. We call them picture frames and we sprinkle a few bacon bits and some chives along with salt and pepper before we flip the bread/egg over to toast the other side...always a favorite-give them a try.

Vera Cruz Tomatoes

Reviewed: Sep. 24, 2010
What the heck is recipe group and are all 5 of you i it together??? I made these last night just as the recipe called for and the were delish. I used fresh tomatoes from my garden and per one comment did not scrape the tomato too thin. Family loved them, we ate them with a side of angel hair pasta and a salad...perfect meal-didnt even miss the meat. Thanks for a delish recipe.

Easy OREO Truffles

Reviewed: Aug. 20, 2010
I have been making these for 10 years or more. I have tried every possible flavor of oreo (I agree with another reviewer-do not use double stuff oreos, they do not work well). Favorite is still the original. People cannot believe what these are made of when you tell them. These are frequently requested at picnics, potlucks and office parties. Give them a try, you wont be dissapointed. (store them in the fridge in an airtight container)

Balsamic Roasted Red Potatoes

Reviewed: Jul. 21, 2010
I was searching for a potato to have with filet Mignon for dinner with guests last night and came across these potatoes. I have to say, these were delicious. I almost cut the vinegar in half and then decided agains it since I like to see what the recipe tastes like first-I am glad that I didnt cut the balsamic. These potatoes were tasty, easy and a great change from the norm. The only thing I did differently is put them on the grill for the baking step intead of in the oven...they were fabulous. Will make these again and again. Thanks.

Unbelievable Grilled Garlic Bread

Reviewed: Jul. 15, 2010
Made this with dinner last night and it was really tasty..only thing I will do differently next time is cook the bread under the broiler instead of wrapping it in foil and placing on the grill. The outside of the bread got too crunchy on the grill and the inside stayed too wet so under the broiler should make both crunchy and delicious.

Grilled Lemon Chicken

Reviewed: Jul. 15, 2010
Hi gang, I was invited to a friends house last night to cook out on the grill with her, we made this chicken (used thighs instead of breasts) and it was amazing. We followed the marinade recipe exactly and it came out moist, tender and very flavorful. Everyone at dinner commented on how good the chicken tasted. This will be my new grilled chicken recipe forever. Grilled chicken usually comes out dry but this was delish!!! Thanks for the recipe.

Caramel Sauce

Reviewed: Jul. 8, 2010
People, People, People. My greatgrandmother, grandmother, mother and now myself have been boiling Eagle Brand Condensed milk for a century and half. Some reviews said that the cans were exploding, easy resolution. 1. Do NOT open the can or puncture holes in it.in any way 2. Get a large pot of water boiling. 3. Once water is boiling, take off milk labels and put cans into water (I do 4 at a time as it will keep on the shelf for a few months) 4. Turn temperature down to simmering & allow to cook for 2 to 3 hours (the longer you cook it the darker/thicker it will be) No one in my family has ever turned he cans. 5. after cooking for alloted time, turn off heat and remove pan from the stove to allow to cool, & then just walk away, do NOT attempt to drain the water or remove the can or open the can at all. 6. You MUST allow the cans & water to cool, before opening the can up. This will prevent the exploding can dilemma for some of the reviewers! The milk can also be done on a campfire (which I have done at least a dozen times or more-allow it to cool in your cast iron dutch oven the same way you do in a pan on your stove top). It is an amazing treat at camp (the boyscouts love it). This comes out thick enough to spread & we have been eating on sliced apples for as long as I can remember-delish. Add a scoop to a pan with a little heavy cream & heat for an amazing caramel sauce...As far as the babysitting comments go...watching your food usually goes hand in hand with cooking :)

Breakfast in a Muffin

Reviewed: Jun. 18, 2010
The first two times I made these according to the recipe and they were very good and gone in a flash (4.5 stars). The last time I made them, I made them for a campout and I made a few changes. I used only white flour (didnt have any whole wheat left), added a 1/2 cup of chopped ham and 3 small chopped sausage links (chopped in my small food processer) to the batter. I added only 1/2 the sugar called for in the batter as well. In the cream cheese topping, I added 1/2 cup of cheese and some minced onions along with the other ingredients listed....these breakfast muffins were the hit of the campout - I heated them up in foil on the campfire ( the camp cook was a little upset that they got eaten instead of her eggs that morning)...thanks for a great recipe that you can adjust to your taste. I will make these again and again for our campouts.

Annie's Fruit Salsa and Cinnamon Chips

Reviewed: Jun. 10, 2010
I always like to make the recipe the way it appears first just to see how it tastes and then go from there. I made it exactly as written and I agree that it is much too sweet. Next time I will halve the preserves, half the brown sugar and not add any white sugar. I will also halve the sugar in the cinnamon and sugar for on the chips as this added to the sweetness as well. All in all, it is a refreshing idea and I will make it again with less sweetness. Thanks.

Buffalo Chicken Dip

Reviewed: Jun. 17, 2009
I have been making this for years. I use fat free cream cheese and use low fat blue cheese dressing in the recipe. We use crackers, tortilla chips and celery for this dip. I also take this camping in a foil cake pan. I make it ahead of time and sit it over the fire to heat it up-delish!

Ricotta Fettuccine Alfredo with Broccoli

Reviewed: Jun. 12, 2009
I used whole wheat linguine, fat free half & half and fat free parm in this recipe-the 1/2 and 1/2 instead of the milk made it very creamy. I sauteed garlic,fresh basil, mushrooms and scallions as well because of some of the comments about blandness. used the chicken and broccoli as well- It was excellent-will definitely make again. I didnt even miss the fat!!

Reviewed: Jun. 12, 2009
