Crispy Pork Carnitas

Reviewed: Feb. 5, 2015
Really, really good. Omitted 5 spice powder (didn't have any) but otherwise made as directed. Next time I'll up the cumin a little and cut back on the salt. Served as soft tacos with corn tortillas, salsa and guacamole. Thanks John for another great recipe.

Pumpkin Cheesecake II

Reviewed: Nov. 25, 2010
I baked it too long, the top cracked and I some how managed to mess up the crust (using ginger snaps). But it tastes fabulous. I subbed the following--skim milk for the cream, 1/4 tsp cloves & 1/4 tsp nutmeg for the mace and the zest of one lemon for the lemon extract. Gobble, Gobble.

Honey Mustard Oven-Baked Chicken Tenders

Reviewed: Apr. 4, 2015
So easy and good. I made my own panko using some sour dough English muffins and baked on a rack at 425 convection for 10 minutes. Then turned them over and turned off the heat and left in the oven for 5 more minutes. They came out beautifully crispy and tasty. This one is a keeper.

KISS Salmon

Reviewed: Jan. 24, 2013
A big FIVE from hubs. He absolutely loved it. I used seedless blackberry jam because I had it and Jack Daniels Original BBQ sauce. 20 minutes at 400 was perfect in my oven. I think you could make this with any jam or preserves you like. In fact the photo looks like the photographer used apricot or peach jam.

Tartar Sauce I

Reviewed: Jul. 23, 2007
This tartar sauce saved some otherwise not so tasty crab cakes. Other than using low fat mayo I followed the recipe exactly. No more store bought for us.

Roast Chicken with Rosemary

Reviewed: Oct. 13, 2012
So easy and the drippings made great gravy. I had a 6 lb clicken that I roasted on a rack for 2 hours at convection 325 and let it stand 30 minutes. It was perfect. I put the chicken innards (less the liver) and chopped carrots, celery & onions in the roasting pan to flavor the drippings as the chicken roasted.

Cindy's Awesome Clam Chowder

Reviewed: Oct. 24, 2010
Not "clammy" enough for me although everyone else loved it. I made it exactly as written except omitted the carrots--in my mind carrots do not belong in clam chowder. Does not need any additional salt. And for some reason it was overly sweet; don't know why. I think I'll add a 3rd can of clams next time and some celery. UPDATE: I've made this twice since the original review. I doubled the clams and sauteed some celery with the potatoes. First time--still too sweet. Third time is the charm I guess. I used regular half & half instead of the non-fat and voila--the sweetness was gone. Wonderful chowder.

Lime Pear Gelatin Salad

Reviewed: Nov. 28, 2014
I was looking for something to replace our traditional lime jello with cottage cheese and pineapple ( new DIL hates cottage cheese). This was great and loved by all. I replaced the water with the drained pear juice and used my food processor instead of the blender. I added a can of drained mandarin oranges to make it a little more substantial. I think we've found a new tradition.

Limoncello

Reviewed: Apr. 5, 2010
Absolutely wonderful. I have a year round loaded lemon tree so this will become a staple at our house. I adjusted the recipe for a 750 ml bottle--8 lemons, 3 cups water & 2 cups sugar. Going to try the creamy version next.

Grandma Rita's Soft Butter Rolls

Reviewed: Nov. 16, 2012
I did a practice run with these rolls last night and they have got to be the easiest rolls I have ever made. I used my bread machine on the dough cycye, When that was complete I let the dough rest for 10 minutes, shaped the rolls, let rise for 30 minutes and baked for 15 minutes. Kitchen goddesses must have been on my side because all the amounts and timings were perfect. I put the ones we didn't eat into a plastic bag and they are even better this morning. Thanks for the recipe Lela and all the buzzers who helped.

Classic Rice Pilaf

Reviewed: Dec. 14, 2012
I tried this more for method rather than flavor and it scores a big ole 5 in both areas. No saffron in the house so omitted that and omitted the salt. Will add a little salt next time. It was perfect after the 10 minute standing time. Next time I think I'll add a little garlic and jus a small squeeze of lemon juice. You have to try this.

Marinated Salad

Reviewed: Sep. 23, 2007
This recipe gets 5 stars with my changes; omitted bell pepper and substituted chopped water chestnuts for celery. Our dinner guests raved about it asking for the recipe. This salad is really better in a day or two. It does make a lot of dressing but it's great sopped up with some good sour dough bread! I'll be making this in place of my usual 3 bean salad. Thanks.

Linguine with Seafood and Sundried Tomatoes

Reviewed: Jan. 27, 2015
I thickened the sauce a little with corn starch, doubled the tomatoes and added a squeeze of lemon juice in addition to the zest. Company worthy. Delicious.

Chex® Muddy Buddies®

Reviewed: Dec. 13, 2013
Easy Peasy. I make it every year for the holidays. The only tweak I make is to use only 8 cups of cereal and a little less powdered sugar which makes it a bit muddier.

Hot Buttered Rum Mix

Reviewed: Dec. 13, 2009
Mine never froze!! It remaines a thick goopy mess--but who cares?!! 2 scoops of the goop, 1.5 oz dark Meyer's Rum (no substitutes), 6 oz HOT water=HEAVEN.
