Reviewed: May 18, 2013
Very easy and tasty! Used the garlic and herb feta, added a bit of cream cheese (didn't measure it but about 1/4 cup), a handful of parmesean and a bit of chopped sun dried tomatoes. (Only used one 10 oz. package of spinach and 4 oz feta to make a smaller batch. Used one egg and 2 large garlic cloves. Topped with parm cheese and baked for 8 min. Made approx 24 cups. They were a hit! Thanks for sharing the recipe!

Peach Preserves

Reviewed: Jul. 13, 2014
Our first time canning peaches. The recipe worked great. We made 4 batches. The peaches were ripe and sweet so we used the following for each batch: 10 cups chopped peaches equaled 6 cups cooked (every time), 2 cups organic sugar, 1 pkg 1.75 oz. pectin. For spiced peaches we added 2 cinnamon sticks, 1/4 tsp. nutmeg and 1/4 tsp. cloves. Added the cin. sticks at the beginning of the 20 minute boil and added the nutmeg and cloves in the last five minutes of the boil. The spiced peach preserves are a spoonful of heaven - tastes like Christmas. We give this five stars all around - easy and delicious!

Awesome Roast Beef

Reviewed: Sep. 13, 2012
Fantastic - one of the best roasts we've eaten. Just fell apart! Seasoned the roast with mesquite steak seasoning. Used 1 can cream of mush soup, 1 can mushroom gravy and about 12 oz beef broth (what I had on hand. Mixed it together and poured it over the roast. Included a small, sliced sweet onion. Added sliced mushrooms, baby carrots and quartered potatoes about half way through! Delish

Healthier Broiled Tilapia Parmesan

Reviewed: Mar. 27, 2013
This was delish! Minor changes - I changed the serving to two (just my husband and I) and brushed the fish with olive oil before broiling. Omitted the butter and added an extra tsp. of the lite mayo to the sauce mixture. Sprinkled some panko bread crumbs on top and then finished it in the broiler. Very yummy! Thanks for sharing!

Kiki's Spiced Habanero Peach Jam

Reviewed: Jul. 15, 2014
Made this as written except: didn't use the vanilla bean or the cardamom (I was too cheap to buy them for one recipe.) It turned out great anyway (probably a little less depth of flavor tho). Just the right amount of kick after the sweet! It will, indeed, be fabulous in baked beans at the next tailgate party!

Green Tomato Cake

Reviewed: Feb. 21, 2013
All I can say is YUM! That's all I've ever heard from anyone who has eaten it. I pureed my tomatoes and used two cups as a reviewer suggested and used cinn. applesauce for half the butter. Worked great!

Country-Style Steak

Reviewed: Jun. 6, 2012
This recipe is so very delicious! I was fed tough, pan fried minutes steaks as a kid. It took me years to want to even see another one, let alone eat one. Now that we purchase a 1/4 beef, I have more beef cube steak than I know what to do with. This recipe is one of the best I've found. Since others had suggested onion, I used a sweet,yellow onion cut into rings on the bottom of the baking dish. I used left over broth that I had saved in the freezer from cooking a roast. The broth had the liquid smoke flavor (I used in the roast). The onion just kind of cooked away and became part of the gravy. As others have suggested I would have added more broth to make gravy if serving with mashed potatoes. I baked it covered for two hours. It was fork tender and beyond delish! So easy to make too. It wasn't greasy or dry as some reviewers experienced. I served it with new potatoes and green beans from the farmers market. Yum!

Easy Dump Cake

Reviewed: Jun. 7, 2012
So easy and yummy. Made it with chocolate fudge cake mix, chocolate pudding mix and chocolate chips. It stuck in the pan in a couple of spots so will grease it better next time. The cake mix was a bit bigger than the ounces called for so the cake needed to cook an extra five min. For guests and/or a more finished look, I will put a glaze of some kind on it, but taste-wise, it needs nothing on top! Anxious to try it again with other flavors. Neither gooey nor dry, it was "just right!" Update - made this again and greased and sugared the pan with white sugar. Came out of the pan like a charm!

Chef John's Make-Ahead Turkey Gravy

Reviewed: Nov. 20, 2012
This recipe was very good and the instructional video was really helpful for those of us who are visual learners. I used two turkey legs instead of wings. Added some sage and rosemary along with the thyme. The finished product was a little too runny for my liking, so I removed a bit of the gravy and added some of the cooked carrots (not too many as you don't want orange gravy) onion and celery and about another tablespoon or so of flour. I used my smart stick hand blender and blended it all up and then put it back in the pot. I finely chopped a bit of the turkey leg meat and threw it in. Another shake or two of salt and it is delish and just the consistancy I like! I agree with jeniferken, it is time consuming but worth it! Update 11/13- I'm making again this year. Using three turkey legs and double the water to make the stock. I'm planning on putting it in the fridge overnight and making the gravy in the morning. I'll use the amount of stock the recipe calls for and put the rest in the freezer for later. Since you are making turkey stock in all but the last step (in which you are actually making the gravy) it's a natural stopping place if you are in a time crunch. If you use turkey legs you will NOT need to add other stock to get a good flavor. It will be pure turkey stock/gravy bliss!

Basic Vegetable Stock

Reviewed: Nov. 20, 2012
Good results and easy to do! I am going to use it to brine my turkey so I made a gallon, but plan on making it again to use in other recipes. I used a bit of yellow pepper, mushrooms, potato peels, carrots, onion, celery. Omitted the green onion and bay leaves because I didn't have them and used thyme, and rosemary. I started my freezer bag of scraps for next time as one cook suggested. I love being thrifty when it is so easy.

Slow Cooker Turkey and White Bean Chili

Reviewed: Nov. 28, 2012
This recipe is great with modifications. I used 3 jalapenos and 1 poblano chili, 2 11 oz. cans of (Green Giant) chipotle white corn. I also used home made turkey stock and left over turkey (from Thanksgiving). Blended together one can of beans, corn and some stock as directed. I did not need the cumin or the cajun seasoning. I cooked everything on high in the crock pot for about 4 hours. I also added some corn starch thickening at the end. Everyone put on their own cilantro and cheese. The chili had a deep rich flavor without being too spicey. Everyone raved about it and went back for more (2 daughters, their husbands and my husband as well as myself). By far the best white chili I have ever made or tasted!

Thanksgiving Leftover Casserole

Reviewed: Nov. 28, 2012
Modified -This was great although I used my leftover turkey gravy instead of making the sauce. Used a 9 x 9 also. I omitted the cheese and added some leftover brussels sprouts (chopped up). Layer the turkey on the bottom, then b. sprouts, gravy, mashed potatoes, with the leftover stuffing on top. (I added a bit of gravy to the potatoes and warmed it on the stove. They spread very easily that way.) Cooked uncovered as directed. So quick and Delish!

Hamburger Steak with Onions and Gravy

Reviewed: Feb. 21, 2013
When my husband saw this cooking on the stove he exclaimed "Comfort Food!!" I made the pattie portion of the recipe as written, but doubled the gravy and used home made beef broth that had just a hint of smoke flavor. Ate it with mashed potatoes and steamed green beans. It made 4 average size patties. We had the left overs for lunch today since we are snowed in with 13 inches! Happy plates all around both meals. Thanks for sharing - it's DELISH!

Tomato Cucumber Salad II

Reviewed: Jun. 12, 2013
I just finished mixing this up. The initial taste before putting it in the fridge has my tastebuds dancing. Added a splash of high quality balsamic vinegar to the mayo. Can't wait to dig in tonight at dinner.

Balsamic Baked Tilapia

Reviewed: Feb. 21, 2013
Fast and easy. Added carrots, but will probably use summer squash or zuccini next time instead. Thanks for the recipe!

Red Salad

Reviewed: Jun. 7, 2012
Neither hated it nor loved it. Boiled beets tossed with a little olive oil and salt is a lot less work and we like it a whole lot better. Won't be making it again. :(
