Old Fashioned Onion Rings

Reviewed: May 22, 2012
Absolutely fabulous, my boyfriend tries to hover and eat them as they come out of the pan!! I use brown onions, and I add about 1-2 tbs garlic powder and 1 tbs black pepper to the flour mix for extra flavor. I fry mine in about 1/2 inch EVOO in a pan on the stovetop and flip when the bottoms turn golden. Love christina b's suggestion for using resealable bags and lidded bowl with tongs, made making them and cleaning up so much easier! I also used Panko but did not make them smaller. Also I recommend starting with 3/4 cup milk instead of the full cup, its too runny. I have also used this batter recipe on red bell pepper strips and fried them, and in place of beer batter mixes when I fry cod and catfish. Plan on trying this with okra soon too!

Chicken Ferocious

Reviewed: May 22, 2012
I'm not a huge fan of asian cuisine but my boyfriend and his mom are so I made it for them, and surprise, I liked it too!! I used apple cider vinegar instead of white and brown sugar instead of splenda. I halved the liquids since I wasnt cooking as much chicken, but then forgot to halve the seasonings- so only 3/4 cup vinegar and 1/4 cup soy sauce, but still used full amounts of red pepper etc, but it still came out AMAZING and extremely flavorful! I did have to add about another 1/4 cup of brown sugar to tone down the tang of the vinegar (so 3/4c brn sug, 3/4c vinegar, 1/4c soy sauce). Also used baby portabellos which I already had instead of button mushrooms. Served with white rice, will try adding chopped carrots next time for more color.

Hot Artichoke and Spinach Dip II

Reviewed: Oct. 12, 2012
absolutely wonderful. hardly used any of artichoke hearts because they were so disgusting looking and smelling (never used in anything before ever) that I will omit them completely next time. this dip was still spectacular with just spinach.

World's Best Lasagna

Reviewed: Oct. 12, 2012
double meat quantities, no need for all the tomato , just use 2 jars of spaghetti sauce (i like prego) and omit sugar and salt. still add fennel and other spices tho. i use either johnsonville or hillshire farm hot italian sausages, cut in half to peel off casings then mix with beef and crumble and cook in big pan. use total 2 lbs of shredded mozzarella, and double the ricotta mixture. add a few dashes of nutmeg to ricotta mix. use no-bake noodles, taste just as good as regular without having to boil or soak.you will have meat/sauce mixture left over if you double it- save for spaghetti. otherwise just make superthin meat layers. dont omit parmesan cheese topping, it does add another layer of flavor that i missed last time i made this because i skipped it to save money. have not tried making meat sauce night before but plan to next time. also i need to find a bigger glass pan, it was overflowing in my 9x13 with just 2 sets of layers!

Grilled Bacon Jalapeno Wraps

Reviewed: Nov. 28, 2012
delicious, i use fresh jalapenos and they arent the slightest bit spicy. normally i refuse to touch jalapenos, but i make sure I get one or 2 of these! Haven't figured out how to get bacon crispy enough yet. I place toothpick-speared peppers on a round pizza pan with holes upside down over another pizza pan to catch the grease that drips thru the holes. I place on bottom rack until bacon looks fairly crispy underneath, then move to top rack and broil for a few mins, but still can't quite get it crispy enough, it's still a little too chewy. I have tried turning up the heat but that just makes the grease caught in the pan smoke, and smoke up the house when I open the oven to check on it. Max I can do is 375-400 for no smoke. Suggestions???

Grilled Garlic Parmesan Zucchini

Reviewed: Nov. 28, 2012
fabulous, just need to figure out how to make the parm stick to the zucchini instead of melting off and turning into a crispy puddle around it!

Cajun Style Stuffed Peppers

Reviewed: Nov. 28, 2012
as is, 3 stars, with modifications, 5, so 4 total. cook the rice separately AHEAD OF TIME, omit the chicken broth or just add a tbs or two if using chicken instead of shrimp/sausage. steam the peppers (tops off and gutted) in 1" of water with a loose lid in the microwave for a couple minutes. i omit the lemon and hot sauce, and just use some Old Bay for the creole seasoning. very versatile recipe, i have done shrimp and italian or andouille sausage, chicken and shrimp, and just chicken if I'm low on funds. the first time I made this, I used some of a jar of spaghetti sauce. the next time, I was out, so I used some pace medium salsa. holy cow what a difference, since then I always use salsa instead of boring old tomato sauce! I shared this recipe with my grandmother, who also tried it both ways, and she agrees to definitely use salsa! add the shrimp last minute to cook some before putting mixture into peppers and baking. Since the rice etc is already hot when I stuff them, I just bake long enough to reheat the peppers. YUM!
