Yellow Squash Casserole

Reviewed: Jul. 17, 2014
Wonderful recipe. Used all ingredients except subbed half and half for milk (was feeling naughty). It kind of reminds me of a really moist quiche but better. Surprised how sweet it tasted, I think it was the crackers but it was enjoyed by all. I will experiment w/the veggies, the base is good and a cubed potato/leek instead of onion combination sounds pretty good to me. Thanks for the recipe!

Apple Pie by Grandma Ople

Reviewed: Feb. 5, 2011
Wonderful :) I used salted butter (was all I had), 5 Granny Smith apples (which was still a lot) and didn't lattice the top crust. I laid the top crust over the pie in tact, vented it, brushed it with apple juice concentrate and sprinkled cinnamon and sugar over that, makes for a flaky tasty pretty crust. The edges were a little too cooked but I'm sure that was the changes I made, may tin foil the edges next time. Will definitely be making this again and again, thank you for the great recipe! Your Grandma knew how to make a great pie!

Old Fashioned Coconut Cream Pie

Reviewed: Feb. 12, 2011
Wonderful pie but good lord did it take forever for the filling to thicken :) My stove won't boil anything on low, after 20-25 minutes I bumped the heat up to 3 from 2 and not long after it started to look like pudding. Used 1 can lite coconut milk (measured 1 3/4 cup), 1 1/4 cup half and half. Took reviewers tips and did not toast the coconut for the filling and did use a small skillet to toast the coconut for the topping (how quick and easy)! I used 1/4 cup cornstarch instead of flour, may up that to 1/3 next time. It's been in the fridge for 2 hours and still not firm yet but didn't stop me from having a piece. Hope it firms up it tastes great! After cooking all day I did not want to hassle w/home made whip cream so (gasp) I used cool whip (oh no!), still a great pie, thanks! Update, it firmed up very well after a few hours, very nice texture.

Barbecue Ribs

Reviewed: Feb. 27, 2011
First time making ribs and LOVED this marinade. I will cut back on the sugar next time, tasted it and it was way too sweet (and I like sweeter BBQ sauces). I simmered the ribs in salted water w/a 1 Tbl liquid smoke for 2 hours. Marinated for another 2, put the ribs fat side up (think of letter c on it's back) brushed w/marinade, covered and baked per directions. Poured the marinade into a sauce pan, brought to boil and ended up using 3 tbl cornstarch/slurry to thicken the sauce. To cut the sweetness I added 1 tbl cajun seasoning, some rooster sarrachi sauce and some healthy dashes of hot sauce (and more liquid smoke, about 1 tsp). Be kind to yourself and either line the dish w/foil or buy something disposable, contractor grade construction glue has NOTHING on this stuff, some serious HARD scrubbing to clean the dish. Will definitely make again w/different ribs next time (store only had beef back). My son asked me the same night when I was making ribs again, he was pretty impressed with them esp. being baked. Thanks! UPDATE: Reduced to 3/4 c brown sugar, 3/4 c heinz chile sauce in lieu of ketchup and chile sauce, Pork Spare ribs, 1/4 c honey bourbon in lieu of rum and added tenderizer & salt to the water while boiling the ribs, phenomenal!! Will be making this a LOT!

Black Bottom Cupcakes I

Reviewed: Apr. 17, 2011
Made exactly as the recipe stated and they are GREAT! I did microwave the cream cheese for 19 seconds to soften, the cream cheese batter after mixing was not runny for me, it thickened up even more after sitting for 20 minutes (between batches, only have 1 muffin tin). The cake batter was very thin looking, I was concerned but they came out great! Filled closer to half full and got 17 cupcakes + 1 runt LOL! Thanks for the great recipe, these ingredients are usually something I always have on hand so that's a plus!

Easy Sugar Cookies

Reviewed: Dec. 25, 2012
Awesome, not much I can add other than if you roll in sugar do so right after making each ball, dough tends to dry a little on the cookie sheet. Also for those that said the dough was crumbly I wonder if this is their first dough recipe. After combining wet and dry ingredients it is crumbly until you knead and work w/the dough. Heat from your hands softens the butter and makes it into the dough you're expecting.

Firecracker Grilled Alaska Salmon

Reviewed: Jul. 31, 2011
Loved this marinade, only change I made was to reduce the sesame oil to 1/2 tsp. 2 tsp red pepper sounded like a lot but it turned out perfect, everyone really enjoyed the salmon, thanks for the great recipe!

Carol's Chicken Salad

Reviewed: May 7, 2011
Was looking for a good base recipe and this was it :) I subbed Ranch dressing for mayo, used 1tsp minced garlic instead of the powder and some diced dill pickle in place of the lemon juice. Didn't have green onions but half of a yellow worked. I left the fruit and chestnuts out and added 4 slices of cooked crumbled bacon. 2 chicken breast baked for 35 min at 350 and shredded worked well. Thanks!

Baked Salmon II

Reviewed: May 8, 2011
Marinade was just awesome, did not change a thing. I did mix up the marinade in the bottom of a casserole dish then set the fish flesh side down in the marinade to save myself a dirty bowl :) Served with roasted potatoes and fresh sliced tomatoes drizzled w/Greek Dressing and Mozzarella, this is a keeper! Thx!

Pie Crust IV

Reviewed: May 12, 2011
5 stars for being easy to work with, perfect measurements and making exactly 1 9" deep pie crust. I used butter flavored Crisco, did not use ice water or cool the dough, came out just fine, not fragile and not too sticky, I'm a NOVICE pastry maker and this recipe worked well for me. Didn't have a rolling pin so improvised with a floured up water glass :) It was kind of bland and not particularly flaky but I can always add sugar and/or spice to the dough next go around. Thanks!!

Clone of a Cinnabon

Reviewed: May 14, 2011
Very good! No bread machine so proofed 2 1/2 tsp of active dry yeast in warm milk w/1 tsp sugar for 10 minutes, added the other wet ingredients then the bread flour. I use Pam instead of flour on my work surface, flour dusted rolls are yuck :) Let it rise 1 1/2 hours. Mixed the melted butter w/the cinnamon & sugar then spread it on the dough, left 1/2 inch at the end for the dough to seal together as another suggested. Rolled from the short side, cut it in half then cut those 2 pieces in half again (4 pieces now) then cut each of the 4 pieces into thirds, nice and uniform that way. Baked in lower 3rd of the oven at 350 for 23 minutes. Couple popped into cones LOL but pushed them back down w/a knife, think it's because the pan was so full they ran out of room! Will definitely make these again, thanks!!

Reviewed: May 15, 2011
Easy and tasty. My roast was a little under 3LB. Added baby carrots, small whole red potatoes, yellow gold pearl onions (boil for 3 minutes in water, rinse in cold water, snip ends then peel). Used a can of beef broth in lieu of water and added 1 Tbl Worcestershire, cooked on high 6 hours and the meat was fork tender, came out great! Thx!

Cheesy Ranch Potato Bake

Reviewed: Jul. 10, 2011
No dressing so subbed 2 tbl dry ranch mix, omitted salt and pepper and added 1 tbl cajun seasoning instead. After cubing potatoes ( 8 red potatoes) I put them in a tupperware bowl with 2 tbl (NOT 6) butter, microwaved till butter melted, put in seasonings and stirred to evenly coat. Sprayed 9x13 with pam, baked potatoes for 45 minutes, they were fork tender, added shredded cheddar (what I had on hand) and put back in oven for 5 minutes. I like the chili powder in this recipe :) Thanks!

Chili Rubbed Pork Tenderloin With Apricot Ginger Glaze

Reviewed: May 18, 2011
This was very good! I didn't have garlic powder so used minced garlic, that worked well as the rub became wet and 'finger painting' it onto the meat meant it stuck really well. I used a foreman grill and it took quite a bit longer to cook than the recipe listed but I think my tenderloins were closer to 1 1/2 pounds.

Chocolate Bourbon Pecan Pie

Reviewed: May 18, 2011
This was very good, I used large bittersweet chocolate chips (all I had) which was a mistake, the pie was yummy but then you'd bite into a big cold chunk of hard chocolate. I ended up digging them out while eating the otherwise awesome pie. If I make again w/chocolate chips I may melt the chocolate and put a layer onto the bottom instead, I didn't like the chip texture. It doesn't really need the chocolate however, the pie was awesome, thanks!

Buffalo Chicken Chili

Reviewed: Oct. 28, 2011
Used only 2 tbl chili powder (all I had left), 1 tbl cumin (since chili powder was reduced), no carrots didn't have any and one can sauce. Used black pre-seasoned chili beans and dark red kidney beans, thought it came out great! Thanks for a great recipe!

Quick and Easy Brownies

Reviewed: Jun. 5, 2011
Very easy and good! Did reduce to 1 cup flour, I like gooey brownies. Cleaned up my pantry by adding what I had leftover from other recipes which was 3/4 cup flaked coconut, 1/2 cup mini choco. chips and 1/2 cup pecan pieces, very good!

French Baguettes

Reviewed: Dec. 4, 2011
So easy and so good! I added a tablespoon of olive oil to the dough along w/an extra tablespoon of flour. Kneaded it on parchment paper which worked well for not sticking. I skipped the egg wash and added 1/4 cup of water to the bottom of the oven when I put the bread in (hidden heating element, if yours isn't hidden I'd put the water in a small oven safe bowl on the bottom rack or spray the sides of the oven with water). Crust was light and crispy and the center was very soft. Thanks! Will NOT buy store bought again!! Update: Day 2 the crust wasn't very good so I will half the recipe for my small family and only make 1 next time, still awesome!

Hoppin' John

Reviewed: Jan. 1, 2011
I used 1LB cooked thick sliced hickory bacon, cut into 1" strips. 2 cans of stewed tomatoes (w/celery), 1 bell pepper finely diced cooked w/the onion in the left over bacon grease , 1 tsp minced garlic, 3/4 cup whole grain long rice instead of 1 1/2 cups and 1/2 tsp cajun seasoning instead of the red pepper, simmered for closer to 2 hours and it came out great this is the first time I've ever cooked beans not in a can! This along w/the Buttery corn bread recipe from this site is wonderful! Also make sure to NOT bring the beans to boiling while they are simmering or they'll burst open, I used a quick soak method and boiled them hard for 3 minutes. The recipe didn't call for it but I covered the pot while boiling (my trusty Betty Crocker cook book said to cover beans while simmering).
