Holiday Chicken Salad

Reviewed: Aug. 26, 2011
I love this - I do make some changes, though. Don't add peppers. Don't add celery - but usually some celery salt for flavor. If not pecans, usually slivered almonds. I also add purple grapes and hardboiled egg as well a Tbsp or 2 of dijon mustard. This is a forgiving recipe so I generally eyeball seasoning and additions. It's ALWAYS delicious and I love serving on leaves of Romaine with a dash of Balsamic. Mmm Mmm good!

Pork Chops with Blue Cheese Gravy

Reviewed: Oct. 8, 2010
Loved this. I did edit the recipe, but WOW. FIRST difference was I did dredge my chops in flour and shook off any excess. I had seasoned my flour with onion powder, garlic powder, paprika, salt and pepper. I salted the chops just a bit before dredging in the flour as well. I put PLENTY of butter in the skillet, and sauteed 2 cloves of garlic prior to throwing in the chops. DON'T be afraid to cook those chopes JUST 3-4 minutes on 1 side, flip and repeat and youre done!! Then cover those babies with some foil and set them aside. they will be PERFECT! Next, I threw in a good amount of mushrooms right into the pan I just used for the chops. I gave several liberal shakes of worcestershire to cover the shrooms. Sauteed them for about 10 minutes until they were getting nice and soft and the worcestershire sauce reduced a good bit. Oh - and I added a splash of white wine to the mushrooms as well, so I let that cook off a bit. THEN, I eyeballed my heavy cream and my blue cheese. I stirred, let it simmer for a bit, stirred a whole lot more (and taste tested repeatedly..) - then covered with a lid. It probably simmered about 10 minutes or so. All I can say is WOW. The gravy MADE the pork chops just phenomenal!! yum, yum! We had oven-baked potatoes with chives, sour cream, cheese, bacon bits as a side. A fantastic, comfort-food meal that will for SURE be repeated in the near future. MAKE THIS NOW!

Caesar Salad Supreme

Reviewed: Jul. 13, 2010
Mmmm. This will spoil you. You will never want bottled caesar dressing EVER...AGAIN...trust me. I'm someone who never ate anchovies before, but let me tell you, I love the taste and I crave this dressing. I'm going to make this dressing tomorrow to go with the Steak Tortellini Caesar salad recipe on this site, see how that goes. I think I actually said, "I'd like to take a bath in this dressing...I'd like to swim in this dressing..." when I first made it. And I meant it! I've made it several times since. It's awesome. --Only addition, I do add an egg to the dressing, for richness. I generally like to coddle the egg for just a minute or two, give the egg a wizz in my mixer and then add it to the dressing. Makes it creamier with more depth. You MUST make your own croutons for this dressing. If you're going to do it, DO IT RIGHT!! YUM!

Creamy Rice Pudding

Reviewed: Jun. 28, 2010
First of all - you MUST use short grain rice. It's the standard risotto rice and it makes this super creeeeamy. I've made with whole milk and skim. honestly, fantastic either way. So if you want to spare the fat and calories, it really doesn't matter. The short grain rice - I used Arborio - this is the CREAMY factor. You MUST cook the rice until tender, and feel free to add a dash of vanilla flavoring and plenty of spice when throwing in the milk and sugar - I added extra sweetmess with a touch of dark brown sugar WITH the white sugar and plenty of "apple pie spice." OH. So good! I've read about making chocolate rice pudding, I'm on a mission to incorporate this recipe with CHOCOLATE. I've read you can also use BROWN rice for rice pudding. Might be a tasty alternative. TRY IT! YUM!

Apple Pie by Grandma Ople

Reviewed: Jun. 28, 2010
I heart this pie. I have made it several times now, it turns out delicious every time. I use a mix of apples, cut thinly. Make it DEEP DISH, if at all possible. Pile those apples in there. Definitely throw some granny smith into the bunch - the tart bite with the sweetness of the sugar makes it quite good. I make the caramel with dark brown sugar - no water necessary. Pour about 75% into the apples, to mix. The rest of the caramel on top. I ate nearly 30% of the pie myself. It's an easy All American pie!! Try it, you won't be disappointed. And homemade Flaky Pie Cust from this site - made with butter - its the way to go!!! YUMMM!
