Carrot Cake III

Reviewed: Apr. 25, 2003
This too was my first try making Carrot Cake. I made it for Easter & everyone loved it!! I halved the recipe, since there was only 5 of us. And made a one layer 8" round. I did use the applesauce idea & it was simply wonderful & moist. I used walnuts in lieu of pecans & decorated the top & sides with the nuts. It looked as impressive as it tasted. Thank You Tammy for this recipe, my husband already "told me" I will be making it again! ;)

Sage Pork Chops

Reviewed: Nov. 10, 2005
This recipe was wonderful. I never put sage on pork chops, but the combination was very tasty. Skipped the salt & added lots of fresh ground pepper. As others, I made a gravy using cornstarch and sliced up some baby bella mushrooms. Will be making this one again. I will use a nice thick chop, so it doesn't dry out.

Chicken Lasagna I

Reviewed: Jan. 17, 2007
This recipe is excellent. I do suggest doubling the sauce, simply because it is delicious. We tend to like our food spicy so I add some crushed red peppers to the sauce for a nice bite. My husband dislikes chicken, but eats this up!! Very pretty presentation also, great colors.

Antipasto Squares

Reviewed: Jan. 24, 2007
These are fantastic! I used the Garlic Butter crescent rolls & roasted my own red peppers, add some hot banana pepper rings & everyone loved these!I also used 4 eggs inside & 1 to brush on the top. The flavor was excellent hot, cold or room temp. I will be making these again & again. The presentation was beautiful. Thanks for the recipe. PS also pre-baked the bottom crust 5 minutes.

Cajun Style Red Bean and Rice Soup

Reviewed: Jan. 30, 2007
This soup was kicking! I had a party of 12 people & everyone said it was great. The flavors blended nicely. I added some chunked leftover ham & served with white rice. 5 stars all the way! Used smoked sausage & red beans instead of kidney. I did pick out the fat pieces from the bacon as it floated to the top, but well worth the effort.

Southern as You Can Get Collard Greens

Reviewed: Oct. 19, 2007
These greens are really great. I add some Frank's hot sauce & it's good to go. The pot liquor could be served in a cup as a soup! I do a rough chiffonade on the greens & go back & do a couple cross cuts. The longer pieces of greens can be hard to eat. Try this recipe you won't be disappointed.

Absolutely Fabulous Greek/House Dressing

Reviewed: Mar. 24, 2008
Very Very Good. I used the same amount of oil to vinegar as suggested & found the vinegar over powering. I added more Dijon mustard & it balanced everything out perfectly. Used on Greek wraps with feta potatoes & even good with just bread for dipping. Will definitely make again!

Chipotle Blue Cheese Dip

Reviewed: Sep. 1, 2008
This was good & spicy. I had an open can of chipotle in adobe in the frig & looking to use it up. I had used 1 or 2 peppers out of the can, so the rest went into this recipe. I also added the entire bottle of blue cheese dressing (16oz.). I would imagine that with a whole can of peppers, this would be too spicy for some. I really liked it & so did several other people. The flavor was very nice & the heat follows. I served with celery, baby carrots & sliced baguette to help cut the heat.

Raspberry Inferno Sauce

Reviewed: Dec. 15, 2008
This is great with Southwestern Egg rolls from this site. There is a local restaurant that paired the 2 together & we loved it! I suggest if you can't find seedless raspberry preserves, take the time & run it through a mesh strainer.

Southwestern Egg Rolls

Reviewed: Dec. 16, 2008
Great for something different! I paired it with Raspberry Inferno Sauce from this site & everyone loved these. Very easy to change up. Made a few with no beans, for a friend who HATES beans. Next doing a few w/o chicken for my vegan nephew. Different color toothpicks make it easy to tell them apart. Also I use eggroll wrappers, they crisp up beautifully!

Crispy Chicken Strips

Reviewed: Jan. 13, 2009
I had several thawed chicken breasts left over & had to use them. This recipe was just right. I realized I had used up all the fake potato making bread. In my pantry I had a box of instant garlic cheese potatoes. It worked out great. The chicken stayed moist & the flavor was really good. Try this one! I also used Panko crumbs. YUM!!

Banana Cream Supreme

Reviewed: Feb. 3, 2009
This recipe was easy to fix & a real crowd pleaser! I did bake my crust for 5 min. & added chopped walnuts to the banana layer & the top for decoration. I used 2 8oz cool-whip containers, one french vanilla & one regular. I also used banana pudding instead of vanilla. Some folks were calling it a slush cake, all I know is that it was very good!! Thanks for sharing this one!!

On the Go Casserole

Reviewed: Feb. 27, 2009
Not bad at all! We were looking for something different using spicy sausage & this recipe fit the bill! We added some onion & some orange bell pepper(cleaning out the fridge). We had large green olives stuffed with garlic & that worked out very well, loved the bite from the olives. The black olives added to the texture & presentation, but not much flavor.We doubled the recipe & added more rice then called for, so I thought it was i bit dry when I was mixing it, so I popped open a small can of V-8 juice & added that. Just enough moisture! Fit nicely in a 13x9 pan.

Grilled Tuna with Pineapple Salsa

Reviewed: May 11, 2009
This made one special Mother's Day meal! Mom's watching her figure, so I knew I had to keep it healthy & low fat but still Yummy!I made the salsa per the recipe & added some lime juice to the tuna steaks & marinated them for about 2 hours. I then took out the tuna steaks & allowed them to come almost to room temp & threw them on my Paula Deen grill. Beautiful grill marks, nice fresh salsa & a happy momma! What more could you ask for?

Pecan Sandies

Reviewed: Jun. 22, 2009
Wonderful light cookies! Everyone enjoyed them on Father's Day. I remember this being one of my Dad's favorites and surprised him with them. Big success! I did not find the dough hard to work with after 30 mins in the frig. Used parchment paper for an easy clean up. I will be making these again. Thank you for this great recipe!

Spicy Red Bell Pepper Soup

Reviewed: Mar. 13, 2010
Ok I did alter the final dish, but made the recipe as is, for a wonderful base. I turned this in to a seafood soup. At the end I added shrimp, scallops & crab. It just seemed natural! So good! The flavors were restaurant quality.

Turkey Tetrazzini II

Reviewed: Jun. 13, 2010
Very Good. I did alter the recipe a bit, added sauted mushrooms & peas. I did make the roux, but added some cottage cheese to the liquid mixture. You don't see the cottage cheese, but it does add a nice rich favor. Oh yeah, I spiced it up just a touch with crushed reds. Yummy!!!
