Apple Crisp II

Reviewed: Oct. 11, 2008
We are invited to one of my first extended family "inlaw" parties. Everyone must bring a "fall" dish to share and I'm a little nervous. My husband and dear neighbors have been sampling apple desserts all week. This was the unanimous winner. In fact my neighbor just printed off the recipe to make for her family. It is excellent. Especially the topping. I only made a few changes. I substituted apple cider for the water and cut the white sugar to 3/4 cup because of that. If you like cider it really gives the recipe a little extra zip. Thank you.

Peach Coffee Cake II

Reviewed: Aug. 30, 2008
Made recipe exactly as listed. I think next time instead of making a peach layer I will mix the peaches directly into the batter. I'm sorry to say it did not have a lot of flavor but add whip cream and/or ice cream and it was good. FYI: The recipe did not indicate that the finished product required refrigeration. As my husband was cutting a piece the next day he said "did you put blueberries in here too?" Nope - it was mold. You savvy bakers are probably laughing at that and couldn't imagine not knowing to refrigerate. Unfortunately, I didn't know.

Chicken and Mushroom Chowder

Reviewed: Feb. 6, 2008
The first time I made this chowder I followed the recipe exactly. The second time I made it, I made some changes which I think really improved the final results. I eliminated the water. I didn't see the need for it. I also eliminated the oregano. I think that was my biggest complaint with the recipe as is - for me the taste was overpowering. To add some flavor, I added chicken bullion, white pepper, parsley and onion powder. Lastly, I waited until the final step to add the chicken. Made as is – the chicken cooks too long – the end result is dried out or rubbery chicken. A tip for new cooks: Before transferring the flour/vegetable mix to the rice mixture stir about ¼ to ½ cup of chicken broth into the flour/veg mixture. This helps to eliminate lumps in your final product.

Homemade Bread

Reviewed: Dec. 26, 2007
This is a good recipe. The only change I made was to use 1 cup milk & 1 1/4 cup of water instead of all water. (I halved the recipe.)

Perfect Porterhouse Steak

Reviewed: Dec. 21, 2007
Tried this with garlic infused EVOO. It was wonderful. I also eliminated the meat tenderizer because I didn't have on hand. Thanks for the recipe.

Mocha Cheesecake Brownie Bars

Reviewed: Sep. 24, 2007
The brownies are good but the cream cheese topping is very overwhelming and it has an odd taste to it. Thanks anyway.

Dan's Favorite Chicken Sandwich

Reviewed: Aug. 2, 2007
I had friends over for an impromptu game night and decided to try out this recipe. My problem was I didn't want to spend the time to assemble 10 sandwiches. So this became an "assemble your own" party. I made everything separately. I grilled the chicken breasts and basted them with a garlic infused EVOO rather than BBQ sauce. (I put the BBQ sauce on the table as part of the assemble your own.) I cut up green and red peppers and a vidalia onion and grilled them while cooking the chicken. The other addition was that I offered flour tortillas as well as sub rolls. When it was time to eat I had a huge platter set out with all the ingredients and let everyone make their own. It was a big hit. Some observations. No one used the avocado. Almost everyone agreed that they would forgo the BBQ sauce. People were happiest with just the ranch dressing or in several cases, mayo. The grilled onions and peppers went great with this sandwich. And lastly, most people preferred the tortillas over the rolls. It gave the sandwich a much lighter taste. I will definitely make this again. If you do it this way, beware it is a LOT of prep work but once it was done I could enjoy my party along with everyone else instead of being stuck in the kitchen. Thanks Dan.

Simple Country Ribs

Reviewed: May 30, 2007
I took another posters suggestion and used the bourbon whiskey bbq sauce recipe on this site. I never cooked my ribs directly in the sauce before. My family loved the added flavor. Instead of quartering the 1 onion, I halved 4 onions, cooked as directed but I then grilled the onion halves along with the ribs. It was a great combination. Thanks for the recipe.

Bourbon Whiskey BBQ Sauce

Reviewed: May 30, 2007
Very, very good sauce. My family really enjoyed it. I made it exactly as written except for the bourbon. We don't drink bourbon so I didn't have it in the house. I tried my neighbors but they didn't have any either (although me calling around at 3:00 in the afternoon asking for some Jack Daniels did give them some laughs.) It was still wonderful. My husband already asked me to make the sauce for his fathers day bbq ribs dinner but this time he wants the recipe made exactly as listed. Can't wait to taste the difference. Thank you.

Cordon Bleu Casserole

Reviewed: May 30, 2007
I made the recipe exactly as written the first time. I thought it was a bit bland. The second time I made it, I used a rotisseri chicken from the local grocery store. I added the juices from the chicken to the sauce(added in with the milk.) That really perked it up. Another benefit of using the pre-cooked chicken was the dish was ready for the oven in less than 10 minutes. I used crushed onion flavored crackers instead of the bread crumbs for the topping. Added nice extra flavor.

Kentucky Hot Brown

Reviewed: May 4, 2007
My dear friend was born and raised in Kentucky. She has never gotten used to what she deems "odd tasting northern food." Maybe this is that thinking in reverse. To me this was so much work for a sandwich and the combination of the hot sauce, turkey, tomatoes and bacon just did not work for me. Thanks anyway.

Fluffy Pancakes

Reviewed: May 3, 2007
These pancakes were fantastic and so easy to make. The only change I made was to add a 1/2 t of vanilla. Thanks Eugene.

Broccoli Casserole

Reviewed: May 2, 2007
My husband and I really enjoyed this side dish. My changes: I reduced the mayo to 1/2 c (calories!), I used 1 package of frozen chopped broccoli and 1 package of broccoli florets, and again due to calories, I left off the cracker & butter topping. To be honest, if I was serving this for company I would probably use the cracker topping I missed that. But I would still keep the mayo at a 1/2 cup, you did not even notice the reduction. Thanks for a great recipe.

Kelsey's Favorite Stuffed Green Peppers

Reviewed: Apr. 19, 2007
My daughter and I loved these as is. My husband is not a big fan of green peppers so he usually would just scoop out the filling. Last summer when we had an over abundance of tomatoes I had an idea. I hollowed out a few tomatoes and filled them for him. He loved it.

Stuffed Peppers

Reviewed: Apr. 19, 2007
Loved the recipe but the green peppers need to be blanched before being put into the oven. Put green peppers into boiling water for 1 - 2 minutes then quickly put in ice water. Then proceed with recipe as is. Green pepper have a much better consistency this way.

Reuben Sandwich II

Reviewed: Apr. 19, 2007
Great sandwich. The only change I made was to heat the sauerkraut in the microwave for 20 seconds before adding to the sandwich. I like my sandwich warmed all the way through. Thanks.

Christmas Breakfast Casserole

Reviewed: Apr. 17, 2007
I really like this recipe. But it needs a few changes. First of all there is WAY too much milk, which I am sure is the reason for the mushy mess and longer cooking times people are encountering. Reduce the milk to 1/2 C at the most. Secondly, to increase the volume lost by the milk, increase to 8 eggs. For extra flavor add ham cubes and or cubed breakfast sausage. Layer bread, meat, cheese, repeat. Then pour egg mixture over top. Let sit over night and cook for 1 hour. And whatever you do, DO NOT forget to grease the pan or you will have a gigantic mess. (I learned this lesson the hard way!!)

Hot Chicken Salad II

Reviewed: Apr. 16, 2007
My daughter and I really liked this recipe but husband did not. He kept insisting I put nuts in the recipe? (I did not.) I even sauteed the celery first and eliminated the water chestnuts to keep the crunchy taste to a minimum. I have no idea where he was getting the nut thing?? I used onion crackers because that is what I had on hand. I made crescent rolls with it. My daughter loved dipping them into the chicken mixture. Will make again. Thank you.

Normal Chicken

Reviewed: Apr. 13, 2007
As is 2 stars. Odd taste with the worchestershire. Second time I made it this way. Cut chicken into large cubes. Wisk together soy sauce, minced garlic, 1 t brown sugar, onion powder, pepper, 1/2 t lemon juice, 1 T olive oil. Pour over chicken and let set over night. Put on skewers. Grill for 5 minutes on each side. Delicious.
