Chocolate Cheesecake I

Reviewed: Feb. 5, 2015
My first cheesecake, turned out beautiful. No cracks I used 1 pkg. of oreo cookies for the crust, twisted them apart and scraped the frosting (chocolate) saved that to ice graham crackers (childhood thing) added 2 Tab of cocoa powder with the mini chocolate chips to make more chocolaty. Sprinkled remainder of chips on top before baking. Was very nervous about the water bath, So I followed another reader and placed a 9x13 pan of water on the rack below the cheesecake, still nervous so I placed a jelly roll pan under the cheesecake and placed just enough water in that pan to come just up to the bottom of cheesecake. After baking and then turning off the oven left it in the oven for two hours. Let it finish cooling on the counter. Then to the freezer, next morning took it out of the pan, sliced it wrapped each piece in plastic wrap and back to the freezer. With only 2 of us, this way keeps us from eating the whole thing. And it freezes well, my husband actually likes to eat it frozen!

Garlic and Parmesan Chicken Wings

Reviewed: Jan. 23, 2015
This is a great recipe kept trying different wing recipes hate the mess with frying but this recipe does give you crispy wings. Some I sprinkled with salt and vinegar seasoning some tossed with buffalo sauce before baking the possibilities are endless. The seasoning in the parboil is perfect for any wings.

Wilted Cabbage Salad with Bacon

Reviewed: Dec. 22, 2013
This is a great side dish. I keep cabbage in the refrigerator all the time. It seems to keep a really long time. I call mine fried cabbage, whether you put vinegar on it, sour cream, or plain it is good.

Simple Baked Apples

Reviewed: Aug. 13, 2013
This recipe is wonderful... After the apple dish is baked and cooled, I take any size flour tortilla place baked apples down the center and wrap like A burrito. Spray the top of each burrito with a little butter. Flavored Pam, sprinkle with a little cinnamon sugar and bake at 350 degrees until burrito is browned, just a few minutes, and presto hand pies! Let cool and enjoy. Everyone wants to know how to make these, they are a big hit,

I adjusted the recipe for one a 4 oz. Lobster tail yields 6 bite size pieces. Also added 1 tsp. Old Bay seasoning to the flour mix.

Turkey Brine

Reviewed: Nov. 23, 2012
First time at brining a turkey, it was simple but alittle time consuming making the vegetable stock, the end result was well worth it. Important to remember brining shortens the bake time. I did an 8lb. turkey in 3 hours! I was planning on 4 hours....The turkey was moist and very flavorful. I will do this again definitley.

Coconut Shrimp I

Reviewed: Jul. 3, 2012
I fixed this recipe last night using jumbo shrimp, it was the best dinner I fixed in quite awhile. My husband thought the shrimp were excellent every bit as good as you would get in a restaurant(better in my opinion) I followed some other suggestions, I put the coconut in my magic bullet and chopped a little finer. I added Old Bay Seasoning , a touch of garlic powder and paprika to the dredging flour, after placing the breaded shrimp in wax paper lined pan, I placed it in the freezer for 30 min. They came out of the deep fryer brown crisp and wonderful!

Potato Chips

Reviewed: May 5, 2012
These are great! It is a wonderful snack and the taste is far better than bag potato chips. The best part, you don't end up eating the whole bag! One potato is plenty to satisfy that craving..

Fried Irish Cabbage with Bacon

Reviewed: Mar. 23, 2012
I've been making this for years..I shred the cabbage instead of chopping it cooks more evenly. BIG TIP: you can also use pre-shredded cabbage from the grocery store, which makes it fast and easy. I add whatever I have avail. onion red or yellow, celery chopped finely. I also have prefried bacon in my freezer which is very convenient. And I keep the bacon grease in the refrigerator for seasoning other dishes. My husband loves this dish. And even if you don't like cabbage, you may want to try this, it just might change your mind on cabbage.

Torsk

Reviewed: Jan. 14, 2012
I could never cook fish. Always over-cooked it. After trying this recipe, I went exactly by the instructions. My husband tasted it and said"Now you can cook fish! This is perfect... It does taste a bit like lobster with the same texture. It was the best fish I have ever attempted to make.
