Perfect Turkey

Reviewed: Dec. 23, 2011
My first turkey: Very delicious, even after forgetting to brine the turkey overnight (i brined for 2 1/2 hours, I also forgot to flip the turkey over till the last 30 min! Skin ripped off but mmmm juicy! The juices are unbelievably flavorful! I put clumps of butter under the skin of the turkey, which helped lock in moistness! After pouring melted butter all over I smothered in garlic salt and I received compliments and also, pouring done of the juices over the turkey was a fabulous compliment!

Dawn's Candied Walnuts

Reviewed: Dec. 29, 2011
I only had half a pound of chopped walnuts so I baked those half the cooking time. (so 325° for 4 min) and followed the recipe exactly. I followed another reviewers advice and lightly salted (with sea salt) the candied walnuts as they cooled. VERY YUMMY!! I will always have a bowl of candied walnuts within reach from now on! This recipe is so easy and very versatile, next time I'm using pecans!

True Bangers and Mash with Onion Gravy

Reviewed: Jan. 1, 2012
So I've made this twice and this is what I have liked so far. I just used the gravy recipe and put it on mashed potatoes! Excellent! I made my own beef broth, 3 boullion cubes in warm water. I also followed another reviewer and added a half cup of cold water mixed with corn starch (the more starch the thicker the gravy) I used about3 heaping tblsp. And for the wine I used one called "red" which left a very nice bold flavor. I let all that boil On high heat only stirring a COUPLE times . It took about 30 minutes for it to decease to half its volume. But EXCELLENT BROWN GRAVY!

Honey Glazed Ham

Reviewed: Jan. 1, 2012
First time making ham and everyone loved it! I went off this recipe and a glazed ham recipe also on this site. (just for the glaze tho) I Used a spiral smoked ham and for tge glaze I added natural hickory liquid smoke, and worcestershire. I also used brown sugar instead of the corn syrup. I also used ground cloves instead of whole, which I smothered the ham in before basting. I did taste test the glaze until I had a flavor explosion in my mouth so I recommend TASTE TESTING! If you want a salter less sweet ham use more worcestershire and liquid smoke, if you want a sweeter ham use more honey and brown sugar. I did baste every 10 minutes. I cooked it in a roasting pan lined with foil. and thee juices left over make a very nice ham dipping sauce!

Bread and Celery Stuffing

Reviewed: Jan. 1, 2012
Sooooo good! Like another reviewer I judged how much broth to add in. (and taste testing helped too!) I used fresh buttermilk bread I dried our myself overnight. And I also used predried bread at the store and the buttermilk bread was hands down the best tasting by far, both were really yummy but the texture in the buttermilk was to live for! only good reviews were to be said by my family and friends!

Italian Sausage Soup with Tortellini

Reviewed: Jan. 3, 2012
Wow is one word to sum up the delicious-ness of this soup! Like other reviewers next time I will add at LEAST one more cup of broth, even 2 more 2 cups with another 1/4 cup of wine (i really love to cook with the wine literally called "red") the wine really brings out a bolder flavor. I also used fresh oregano instead of dried (i snipped leaves off of 2 twigs) I also added butternut squash, And i also used more broth instead of water and no additional salt needed. Everything else was the same. But raves ALL around, my baby girl couldn't stop saying mmmmmm ! (neither could anyone else)

Appetizer Mussels

Reviewed: Jan. 9, 2012
Holy ! These ARE amazing! im sure the regular recipe is delicious but I didn't have the "juice" recommended, but I did have spicy vegetable juice and tomato sauce! I use sauvignon blanc for the white wine and I added a tbsp of cholula hot sauce and a bay leaf, and I had garlic french bread which was stupendous! Definitely saved the leftover sauce for spaghetti sauce tomorrow! Also I slowly heated up the sauce on medium low for about 30 minutes then added mussels and turned it up to medium for the 6 minutes then turned the sauce on high heat for 5 minutes + definitely a keeper

Slow-Cooker Barbecue Ribs

Reviewed: Jan. 9, 2012
Fall off the bone juicy!! I made my own bbq sauce (ketchup, brown sugar, liquid smokes "hickory smoke", seosoning salt, garlic salt, sea salt, course pepper, worcestershire sauce, cholula hot sauce, c as yenne pepper, and my favorite ingredient white wine -season to your taste ) ALWAYS TASTE TEST! Just don't taste it after you put it on tge beef or pork ribs lol. And if you like the taste of your bbq sauce b4 its cooked, you will love the taste after its cooked! Fabulous, fabulous, fabulous! I cooked 1 lb pork back ribs pre wrapped in the meat section. so juicy and falling apart my 9 month old could eat them!

Peppered Shrimp Alfredo

Reviewed: Feb. 18, 2012
I only rate 4 stars due to using jarred alfredo sauce. I make my own. You can use either half and half, heavy whipping cream and dilute to desired consistency with milk. For my sauce I use half cup milk, and half cup heavy cream add it in my already cooked and drained penne or fettucini noodles. I cook over med low heat and add 1-2 cups shredded parmesan cheese. And thats your basic alfredo sauce. but I like to add a variety of cheeses. I add (serving for 4 ppl) 1 1/2 C parmesan, 1/2 C pepper jack, and 3/4C swiss. And constantly stir until mixture forms a nummy sauce. (i also add 1 tsp italian seasonings 1 tsp pepper and 1 tsp sea salt)

Banana Pudding IV

Reviewed: Feb. 18, 2012
VEry good, I used a packet vanilla and a packet of cheesecake and next time I will mix bananas all the way through it. I layered the top with sliced bananas and wafers. And then when I served it I would have my guests crumble some more wafers on top which was exquisite!

Jalapeno Popper Mushrooms

Reviewed: Feb. 18, 2012
Fantastic recipe ! Rated 4 stars because I think cooking then on the stovetop brings out a better flavor in the cheese. my husband got some from the deli. We didn't know how to cook them so I guessed and put water in a sauce pan just enough to go about half way up the mushrooms cooked on med - med high heat covered for 15-20 minutes. And thet cheese was so good. Next time I made my own and bought some from the deli and cooked them in the oven. They tasted the same except in the oven it makes the cheese almost instantly disintegrate in your mouth but on the stove top it makes the cheese melt in your mouth!

Amazing Asparagus

Reviewed: Feb. 18, 2012
Maybe I cooked this wrong.... canned asparagus is awful compared to fresh. Umm the bread was too soggy and all in all it tasted like a bad goulash.. I might try again considering it had potential. Next time I will use fresh almost all the way cooked asparagus, use french fried onions mixed with butter on top instead of bread. Omit water chestnuts and add maybe zucchini or snap peas. And put cream of broccoli or cream of onion. But thats IF I make it again
