Amazingly Good Eggnog

Reviewed: Dec. 22, 2006
Excellent Nog! Store bought nog is too syrupy and sweet for my taste. I decreased the sugar by 1/4 cup and only used 1 cup of rum. The milk did not come to a boil in my doubleboiler so after 30 minutes of stirring I warmed and added the yolks. After refrigerating overnight I noticed a slight grainy texture, likely the eggs curdled a little, so I took another reviewer's suggestion and ran the whole batch through the blender - it came out very smooth. I used 2 cinnamon sticks rather than ground, will probably use 3 next time. Overall I was very pleased and my co-workers have already asked if I could bring more next week.

Turkey Brine

Reviewed: Dec. 27, 2005
An easy recipe that gives awesome results. I let the turkey breast sit for close to 24 hours. The results were awesome - very moist without any basting. The spices added a wonderful flavor to the bird. My only complaint is that there were no leftovers - everyone loved it!

German Apple Cake I

Reviewed: Dec. 19, 2005
Thanks to all the other reviewers I reduced the oil to 1/2 cup and reduced the sugar to 1 1/2 cups as well as increasing the cinnamon to 3 tsps. I also thinly sliced my apples and should have used 5 cups instead of 4. I made an additional change - I beat the eggs and oil together until the eggs were a little frothy on top - about 1 to 1 1/2 minutes. I baked this in a glass pan for 40 minutes and the cake turned out quite light and moist. Instead of greasing and flouring the pan I substituted cinnamon sugar for the flour. For those of you who haven't tried this recipe - its WONDERFUL!!!! Not overly sweet, just bites of apple-cinnamon heaven.

Pittsburgh Chipped Ham Barbecues

Reviewed: Jul. 14, 2005
Can't say enough! Easy and tasty. I've shared this recipe with co-workers who had to suffer through me heating leftovers at work. Everyone loves it. I did add a bit of finely diced onion. I haven't added the liquid smoke as our grocery store doesn't carry it and I can't remember to check any others. My SO would prefer we have these once a week...

German Rouladen

Reviewed: Dec. 16, 2004
I've made this recipe several times - fabulous. Its really no effort. My SO LOVES this. I use sandwich steaks - thick or thin. If they are a little thick just cover the pan for the first 45 minutes of cooking. Definitely use a stone ground german mustard. Used beef broth and added some garlic to the broth along with thinly sliced onions and a few shakes of worcestershire. I thickened the broth with corn starch to make a wonderful gravy for mashed potatoes. This is also pretty good without the bacon. Our dog swiped the bacon off the counter last time before I could get more than one roll made.

Buffalo Chicken Dip

Reviewed: Feb. 17, 2004
Excellent, simple and tasty - what could be better? I used blue cheese as its traditional with Buffalo Wings. I did bake this at 350 for about 20 minutes rather than use the crockpot. The hot wing sauce is perfect - a nice ZIP without being hot - it was enjoyed by those who don't like hot foods as well as those who do. Everyone seemed to prefer the celery to the chicken crackers. Great choice a a new, unusual dip!

Pepper Steak Packet

Reviewed: Jan. 20, 2004
Wow, what a versatile recipe. Just use your imagination. I doubled the steak, added some sliced potatoes, used regular and onion steak sauces and cooked it in the oven as a previous reviewer mentioned. An entire meal in one packet that was really delicious! My husband loved it. Thanks Dan - we'll be making this again!

Best Carolina BBQ Meat Sauce

Reviewed: Jan. 5, 2004
This was excellent. I browned 5 lbs. of boneless chops, slathered them with this sauce and cooked them on low in the crock pot with about 3/4 cup of sauce. When they were falling apart I added the balance of the sauce (only made 2 cups of sauce) and shredded the meat. We had sandwiches the next day and my Carolina-raised husband said it was the best barbeque sandwich he'd ever eaten. I steamed the buns and topped the BBQ with a little extra hot sauce and regular slaw (as opposed to BBQ slaw) Yummy - better than 5 stars!

Antipasto Pasta Salad

Reviewed: Sep. 9, 2003
This was excellent! I cannot say enough for the dressing - an earlier reviewer said "its not what you put in your salad, its what you put on it". That was absolutely correct - the dressing really makes the salad. I added artichoke hearts, used more cheese, used roasted red peppers and changed to grape tomatoes as was suggested. I also used fresh italian parsley. I made the dressing a couple of days early and made the salad the day before. As was suggested I mixed part of the dressing with the salad the day before serving and let the flavors blend. Definitely take this out of the frig a few hours before serving and let the salad warm to room temp. This salad was gobbled down and requests were made to take home any leftovers above anything on the table. Leftovers - Ha!

Tequila Cocktail Sauce

Reviewed: Aug. 18, 2003
This was fantastic! It received rave reviews at a recent gathering. Some friends were eating it out of the bowl with spoons sans shrimp and trying to figure out what that 'special flavor' was. The tequila really makes the sauce! Do scale the recipe, though and watch the hot sauce. Thanks John!
