Country Ham and Quick Buttermilk Biscuits

Reviewed: Oct. 15, 2004
This is a review of just the biscuits. I used self-rising cake flour. Don't expect these to rise - but they were excellent! I cut very large squares - and they were the perfect shape to put sliced ham or eggs in between two of them. I made these to go with the Sausage Gravy I on this site. Yummy combo!! I will try the ham part of this recipe at Easter time.

Cola Pot Roast I

Reviewed: Oct. 13, 2004
Grrrrrreat!!! I added some frozen baby carrots and a lot of garlic pepper. After browning the meat - I put all in the slow cooker - on high for 6 hours. Super recipe - I think I may put a bay leaf in next time though. Thanks!!!!!!!!

Raisin Peanut Bars

Reviewed: Oct. 11, 2004
Despite the 2-stars, I do have to say the "crust" to these bars - is pretty good!! I might use the crust part of this recipe again - with a different topping - not sure what...However, we didn't care for the chocolate - raisin topping at all. Also - the salted peanuts - I just sprinkled those over the top, at the very end - since it wasn't specified in the recipe. Thanks anyway! PS - I much preferred the absolutely terrific Peanut Brittle Cookies by this same submitter...do try them!!!!!

Chicken Pot Pie II

Reviewed: Oct. 11, 2004
Want to make this great recipe quicker? I sauteed the cut-up raw chicken with the onion, celery, fresh parsley, & mushrooms – and added various seasonings and a teaspoon of Beau Monde seasoning (I left out the thyme!). At the same time – I boiled the frozen veggies (I like to pre-cook mine) in the chicken broth with added garlic pepper – then when I drained them (reserving liquid, as recipe specifies) – I added one 4-oz drained jar of pimentos. I proceeded with the rest of the recipe – but when the sautéing was done – I added the flour, then broth mixture and all the veggies at once to thicken. The real timesaver - instead of topping with pie crust – I topped with Stovetop stuffing mix (chicken flavor) and generously drizzled unsalted butter on top. Makes a great crunchy topping!! Great recipe – I just needed to reorganize to fit my time constraints. Thanks a bunch!!!

Chocolate Rum Cake

Reviewed: Oct. 5, 2004
I made this into a traditional "poke" cake - I baked it in a 9x15 pan - and left in there for serving! I also used 1/2 cup pecans and 1/2 cup walnuts to cover the bottom of the pan. I also used macadamia nut oil, instead of regular oil. For the glaze - make sure and use good quality, unsalted butter!! Great taste - thanks!!!!!!!! P.S. - we serve this cake as they would "over here" - by pouring a bit of "pouring cream" (heavy whipping cream, UN-whipped!) over the top of each piece (make sure and warm the piece of cake slightly in the microwave first!)

Wonderful!! I only used 1 lb. of kielbasa, used crushed (not chunk) pineapple, and cut the brown sugar down to 1 cup. I added one finely chopped green pepper and 1 tbsp. of Tabasco Soy Sauce. Served over white rice - Yummy!!!! Thanks a bunch - great for the very chilly evening we will have tonight!!!!!

Vickie's Beer Bread

Reviewed: Sep. 28, 2004
Great recipe! If you are serving this bread with a main meal - I wouldn't take the suggestions below to add more sugar. I made this recipe with self-rising cake flour. I might add some dried or fresh parsley next time though. This loaf was great - after tasting it - I'd call it: Beer Biscuit Loaf - because it tastes like homemade biscuits. Delicious!!!! Perhaps a bit of crumbled, cooked bacon for a twist!!! ********10/15/04 - Made this a second time - but with regular flour and didn't like it! Will always use cake flour for this recipe!!!!!

Peanut Brittle Cookies

Reviewed: Sep. 28, 2004
I used a smaller pan than specified, because I wanted the bars to be a little thicker. These are best eaten warm (with a plate to catch the crumbs!) with a big glass of milk! Also - it's not noted in the recipe - but use UN-salted peanuts!!!! Thanks - I loved these - the sweetness level was very subtle - which was refreshing!!

Spicy Turkey Chili

Reviewed: Sep. 28, 2004
Fantastic recipe! I have to admit - I used it as a starting point and made a lot of additions! I omitted the water / used canned, diced tomatoes / added 1/2 can pumpkin / added 1/2 brick cream cheese / also - I only had one can of kidney beans and one can of black beans. It came out fantastic and I took the other reviewers' suggestion and used ground turkey (1 lb.) browned with the onion. Thanks for the recipe/idea!!!!

Chili Seasoning Mix II

Reviewed: Sep. 28, 2004
I give this two stars because the flour overpowers the mix. I'm sure it is great leaving out the flour - but then I wouldn't be reviewing this recipe as posted. I was going to toss it - but saved it by adding (ironically) a packet of taco seasoning - which diluted the flour. Thanks anyway - will actually make this again - but without the flour!

Chicken a la Charlie

Reviewed: Sep. 28, 2004
Great recipe! I used sherry instead of wine - like others suggested. I also used a red onion and spread it in the bottom of the pan, loaded on my favorite seasonings, put the chicken on next, then topped with the mushrooms. I then covered with the sauce and baked. I only used 4 chicken breasts - that way there was a ton of "gravy" so I could serve all in crusty bread bowls.

Strawberry Cake Cookies

Good recipe if you have extra cake mixes to use. Ok taste - but not something I'd make again. Thanks for the recipe though!

Slow Cooker Escalloped Chicken

Reviewed: Sep. 15, 2004
Good recipe - I do agree - use a lot less liquid than specified!! I just mixed diced raw chicken into the mixture before cooking and used one can of chicken broth - which was a little too much!!! I pre-sauteed the onion and celery until al dente. I used half white and half whole grain bread. I also threw in a handful of orange-flavored, dried cranberries and some sliced raw mushrooms (which will add their own liquid while cooking!). Next time - I'll use really tough french bread and whole grain bread and will add even more dried cranberries - they made it really "Thanksgiving-like"!!!!

End of the Line Ham Casserole

Reviewed: Sep. 9, 2004
Great recipe! I used red onions and cream of mushroom & roasted garlic soup. I also halved the ham and added over a cup of sliced mushrooms. I mixed together the onions and potatoes and microwaved them until the potatoes were done. Then I mixed all else in and put in the oven for 20 minutes. Also - I used evaporated milk instead of regular milk and sprinked with crushed Ritz crackers and some shredded mozarella cheese before putting in the oven. Will use again!!!!

Colleen's Slow Cooker Jambalaya

Reviewed: Aug. 31, 2004
Great - I only made two changes out of necessity: I used diced ham instead of the sausage and INSTEAD of cooking the rice separately - I added a cup of uncooked Minute Rice at the very end - because this had a huge amount of liquid. Did the trick!!! Thanks!!!

Chocolate Oatmeal Cookies

Reviewed: Aug. 2, 2004
We really didn't like the combination of chocolate and cinnamon at all....for those that love chocolate and cinnamon together - you'll like this recipe. It's been suggested that you can leave out the cinnamon - but then it's a different recipe!!!! Sorry - but won't make these again.

Chris' Bay Area Burger

Reviewed: Jul. 25, 2004
Will use again - VERY GOOD!!!! The only thing I changed is I used chilli-infused olive oil instead of plain olive oil. Great with grilled onions and a slice of provolone cheese on top!!!! For those of you that plan to actually grill these burgers - this is a great recipe!!!
