Juicy Roasted Chicken

Reviewed: Mar. 31, 2013
This was absolutely fantastic - I did this for my Easter Sunday dinner, made it exactly as directed, and it got rave reviews all around. It really is this simple - the chicken was incredibly moist and had a beautiful skin. And because we Southerners just can't serve any meat without some kind of sauce or gravy, I made a very simple au jus from the pan drippings, some added water and a small amount of chicken stock. Truthfully, I don't think the chicken really needed it - it was plenty moist enough; I just have menfolk in my family who can't stand the thought of not having something to spoon over the meat. I did this with a family-size roaster chicken, so it took a considerably longer time to roast (soooooo worth it, though) - but I was able to use the leftovers for a really awesome chicken salad. Hands down, this recipe is a keeper!

Seven Minute Frosting I

Reviewed: Apr. 6, 2011
This is a tried and true recipe I've used for years, and it's just like the frosting my mom made when I was little. I've noticed several of the reviews stated that theirs fell flat in spite of following the recipe exactly - perhaps I can give some insight? I've learned the hard way over many years that you cannot make this frosting on a rainy day, or even a very overcast day - the humidity in the air will prevent the egg whites from whipping up, no matter what you do. So, my advice is to check with Jim Cantore the day before you want to do this frosting. :) Otherwise, it is awesome! Perfect for a coconut cake!!!

Restaurant-Style Buffalo Chicken Wings

Reviewed: Feb. 7, 2011
These were fabulous - every bit as good as a bar & grill. I just recently received a deep fryer as a gift and have since been trying different things with it. My husband suggested I do some hot wings for the Super Bowl, and man, this recipe knocked it out of the park. Easy to put together, just enough heat - just awesome! Thank you for a great recipe!

This was awesome! I've been experimenting with German fare during this month - Oktoberfest and all - and this was definitely a winner. I don't have much frame of reference here - I haven't had much German food in my lifetime, but my husband has and he loved it. I took the suggestion of serving it with french fries to soak up the gravy, and also served braised cabbage alongside it. The pork cutlets didn't look that great at the store when I went shopping, so instead I just got a pork tenderloin and sliced it myself, pounding it very thin. I followed the breading instructions exactly as written, and then deep-fried them in my fry daddy - they fried up in three minutes perfectly. So tender - and I've always had a hard time getting pork just right. This is totally going into my regular rotation.

The Best Banana Bread

Reviewed: Sep. 28, 2010
This is such an easy and versatile recipe - I've used it so often in the last few weeks, I know it by heart now. I make this recipe as mini-muffins (bake time is 13 minutes), and my 5 year-old absolutely LOVES them. They're sweet, but not too sweet - just perfect. And you can really play around with it, too - I've tried this recipe with applesauce, pumpkin and bananas, as suggested, but I've also used pureed canned peaches, pureed strawberries and also sweet potatoes. I bet just about any pureed fruit would work. My husband and kids had no idea they were actually eating healthy muffins! This one is a keeper!

Tropical Salad with Pineapple Vinaigrette

Reviewed: Aug. 20, 2010
What a great salad! I made this just as it was written and tasted the dressing beforehand. It did seem like it was lacking something, so I added 1 tbsp. splenda for some sweetness and 1 tbsp. dijon mustard, as suggested by another reviewer - and it turned out perfect! A wonderful mix of flavors - I'd give it 4 stars as written, 5 stars with my additions. I bet it would be even better with some sliced grilled chicken breast or grilled shrimp on top - I will definitely be trying that!
