Blueberry Buttermilk Coffeecake

Reviewed: Nov. 25, 2003
Very traditional coffee cake recipe - the old fashioned type - excellent - thanks for sharing!!! We shared with our neighbors - who had never heard of coffee cakes at all - and they loved it!! If anyone thinks this coffee cake is "heavy" in texture - eat it with a nice hot cup of coffee (or tea) - the way it was meant to be eaten - hence the name!!!

Beer Chops I

Reviewed: Feb. 7, 2007
Another reviewer was right - this IS what pork is supposed to taste like!! I didn't have bouillon cubes - so I used gray sea salt, pepper, a bay leaf, poultry seasoning, garlic powder, and Cajun seasoning. I used a bottle of extra pale ale AND a bottle of Miller Draft. Once it was done - I removed the meat, onions, and bay leaf and poured the remaining liquid in a pot. I added more Cajun seasoning, a little water, milk, and Wondra and made a thick gravy. Topped it all off with crumbled cooked bacon - and yummy!! I will make this again and again!!!!!!! Thanks a bunch!!

Blueberry 'S' Pie

Reviewed: Feb. 25, 2011
Excellent!!! I will actually use this as a quick cobbler recipe every week! I have to say - I did decrease the butter to 3/4 cup and thought it came out great - next time I'll try 1/2 cup butter and 1/4 cup applesauce to see if it comes out the same! I also used whole wheat pastry flour and sprinkled about 1/2 cup of chopped walnuts on top of the blueberries before putting the topping on. I can't wait to use this recipe with some canned figs I have!.....maybe even jarred mincemeat another time?!?!?!?!? Thanks a million!!!!!!!!!!!

Buttermilk Corn Bread

Reviewed: Jul. 15, 2008
FABULOUS! I will use this for ALL my cornbread needs! This time - I used 1/3 cup sugar instead of the salt. I also doubled the recipe and used a glass 9x15 pan. I also used white cornmeal. But - the possibilities are endless - next time maybe some crumbled bacon - the next - maybe tiny snippets of dried apple? This was SOOOO quick and easy!! Tonight - the butter, honey, and huckleberry jam will be on the table!!!!!

Carrot Raisin Salad

Reviewed: Jun. 22, 2011
Great recipe - love the idea of mayo and yogurt together! I used equal parts of mayo and fat-free, unsweetened Greek yogurt. Lots of honey and lots of cinnamon did the trick! I also added some slivered almonds and coconut! Oh - I did use dark raisins and soaked them in hot apple juice before adding!

Peanut Butter Oat Rounds

Reviewed: Aug. 21, 2008
Pretty good - not a very sweet cookie - which I think is a good thing. They are really good with hot tea. I used Smucker's Natural peanut butter. I will fix again.

Mincemeat Crumb Bars

Reviewed: Jan. 30, 2012
Wonderful!! I did do a slight "goof" - I wasn't paying attention and forgot to bake the crust first, before putting the mincemeat in (I used a large jar and added walnuts as well!). Fortunately - I just doubled the bake time - and with my oven - it came out perfect!!! Will make again!!!!!!!! Oh - also - didn't use the frosting at all - but would have been nice - had with vanilla ice cream instead.

White Bean Chicken Chili

Reviewed: Oct. 6, 2008
I used this recipe as a starting place! I added a bottle of beer after cooking the onions and garlic and brought to a boil before proceeding with the recipe. I also added more spices to suit our tastes (more salt / more heat). When I was all done - I added a leftover bowl of cooked white rice that I had. Doing that made enough to last a long time - some will be going in the freezer! Adding the rice really stretches how far the food will go!! Thanks!

Famous Butter Chicken

Reviewed: Sep. 18, 2012
Simple, quick, and versitile recipe! You can add whatever spices you like and it bakes (per my oven!) in only 30 minutes! Double the recipe and use a large quantity of pre-cut chicken tenders! Instant dip-able nuggets that any kid or hubby will love!

Turkey Tetrazzini II

Reviewed: Mar. 8, 2013
After reading that some cooks thought this was a little bland - I used buttermilk instead of regular milk - adds the zing that is missing for some! Also - when you put the pasta and turkey in the baking dish - add extras - like peas, pimentos (for a little color!), and mushrooms. If you used canned mushrooms - remember to add the liquid to the buttermilk mixture before cooking! Also - I use Wondra instead of plain flour and mini fuslli instead of spaghetti.

Roast Leg of Lamb

Reviewed: Feb. 11, 2009
This was easy and came out absolutely perfect! I put in a large roasting pan and added water before and halfway through cooking to keep the moisture level up in the oven. Will use this again - would make a wonderful and different Christmas or Easter dinner main course!

Hearty Breakfast Cookies

Reviewed: Mar. 23, 2009
Great and filling breakfast cookie! I did use buttermilk instead of the water. I also used half raisins and half chopped dates. Because of what I had in my pantry - I used half peanut butter and half sunflower seed butter. I also ran out of oatmeal and only used 3 cups. Both not by choice....but the cookies came out great anyway!!!!! Thanks a bunch!!! I look forward to also crumbling a couple of these cookies in a bowl of vanilla yogurt, as well!!!

The Best Meatballs You'll Ever Have

Reviewed: Apr. 7, 2009
The name is true! I used ground bison instead of ground beef. We had these plain on hamburger buns. My husband loved them and said they reminded him of the White Castle hambugers he used to have in college! Will use this recipe again!

Baked Oatmeal Squares

Reviewed: Oct. 31, 2010
I doubled this recipe and baked in a 9x13 glass pan. It took 45 minutes in my oven to bake through! Also - I used dates instead of raisins and added 1/3 cup flour - because I thought the mix looked too liquid. I was right - the flour added just the right consistency - not crumbly at all!!!! It is supposed to be around 26 degrees for the next three nights here - so this will make a nice evening dessert (topped with a little vanilla ice cream, of course!!). Will use this again - many thanks!!!

Marinade for Steak I

Reviewed: Dec. 25, 2010
FANTASTIC!!!!!! We had two huge Porterhouse steaks - I marinated them for THREE days! The only thing I did different - was I used shallots instead of a white onion. Here's my TWIST: While the steaks were broiling, I took all the leftover marinade - took a little time skimming as much oil off the top as I could - and brought it to a rolling boil in a saucepan. I then added one package of Peppered Boursin (5.2 oz) and about 1/2 cup milk and reduced a little. This made a fantastic and rich dipping sauce for the steak (these steaks were just too beautiful for regular steak sauce!!!!) Now - I have leftovers of this sauce and I plan to sautee some mushrooms with the leftover sliced steak - and add that to some fresh cooked green beans and toss with this rich sauce!!! Nothing goes to waste!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! If the sauce if too rich for you for this mix - you could add a can of mushroom soup and some milk - you get the drift.....Thanks Steveskat!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Brown Sugar Meatloaf

Reviewed: Jan. 5, 2011
Great recipe! I took the advice of other reviewers and mixed the ketchup and brown sugar and put on top of the meat loaf. The only other changes I made was to use evaporated milk and buttery round crackers instead of plain milk and saltines and I doubled the recipe and used 1 lb. each of ground pork, lamb, and bison. Baked until reached 160 degrees internally. Came out fantastic - will use again - Thanks!!!!

Tarragon-Dill Grilled Chicken Salad

Reviewed: May 30, 2012
Refreshing and perfect for summertime! I doubled the recipe - so I would have enough to last all weekend! The only thing I would do different next time is use a little bit less vinegar. I also added 2 teaspoons of white sugar....but probably would not need to do that next time, when I decrease the vinegar. Will make again and again! Oh - also - I used dried herbs and used Greek yogurt instead of the sour cream - since that's what I had on hand.

Pumpkin Pie Pudding

Reviewed: May 31, 2012
Perfect flavor and texture - I doubled the recipe and didn't change any of the ingredients. I used my hand mixer for about 2 minutes on low - just to make sure everything was really smooth and combined. This dessert is perfect - because it can be served warm during the fall/winter and cold during summer. Even on low - this cooked very quickly in my slow cooker. After just under 2 hours - I noticed that the edges were at about 180 degrees and the center was around 120 degrees....so I made the decision and took a heavy pot whisk and mixed everything up again - yes - you will lose the perfectly smooth appearance - but you will risk having the sides burned by the time the middle is done, if you don't! So - mine was done just 30 minutes after that! Very yummy-licious! I also plan to spoon some in a bowl and top with granola for a different type of breakfast treat/parfait!!!!

Holiday Fruit Stuffed Roasted Chicken

Reviewed: Sep. 28, 2012
First - let me say that the mix rubbed onto the chicken was wonderful - it made the drippings perfect for gravy - and in fact - I just used the drippings with Wondra and water to make the best gravy we've ever tasted! I will use this mix on my Thanksgiving turkey! Second - I learned a few things regarding the stuffing - for us personally - we don't like walnuts and will use pecans next time. Also - we will only use a pinch of cinnamon - it was too strong for us....maybe a touch of all spice instead next time? I'll have to experiment. Using the fruits - esp. the prunes - made it very tasty. I will quarter the grapes next time - so they are not so visible. Also - NOTE - this stuffing would be fabulous to serve with HAM!!!!!!!.................oh - I didn't find this stuffing expensive to make, as the other reviewer noted....I got grapes and apples on sale...canned pineapple is very cheap...and I actually used drained, canned pears - which are also pretty inexpensive. The chicken was the expensive part!

Dad's Escarole and Bean Soup

Reviewed: Oct. 12, 2012
I put everything in my crockpot! I used a carton of vegetable broth and added 2 cups of water. I used three different types of canned beans and added a tabelspoon of dried dill to make it interesting. I did have to add a good amount of salt - since everything I used was no salt added! The only part I cooked on the stove - was I sauteed 2 red onions and 2 medium hot peppers in grapeseed oil, butter, salt, and 2 tablespoons of sugar to almost caramelize them - then added them to the crockpot. Cooked on low for 5 hours - WONDERFUL - the slight warmth from the peppers was perfect for this 23 degree night we are supposed to have! Thanks! Will use again and again - the crockpot - made this soooo easy!!!!!
