Sesame Beef

Reviewed: Aug. 6, 2002
OUTSTANDING!!! My DH and kids were in utter heaven eating this meal! I, too, doubled the recipe, & doubled the marinade. Then cooked the meat quickly, removed it to large bowl while I stir fried fresh broccoli, julienned carrots and onion to tender-crisp, then added the beef back to the skillet and simmered it a little longer in the sauce, thickenening it with a small amount of cornstarch. This was a fantasic one-dish meal! THANKS!!!

Ham Tetrazzini

Reviewed: Apr. 21, 2003
This was exactly what I was looking for to use up the Easter ham leftovers. I doubled the recipe to make 8 servings, and I used 98% fat free cream of mushroom soup to cut the calories. It had a great creamy cheesy mild taste, and the combination of ham, cheese and cream of mushroom made it plenty salty without having to add salt. I added just a little black pepper and garlic, and it was perfect. This was also a very quick dish to prepare on a school night. Thanks! 5*****Stars!

Basic Beef Stock

Reviewed: Mar. 15, 2012
A keeper. I picked up beef shank bones and beef neck bones from my local butcher (very inexpensive). The neckbones had meat on them whereas the shanks were mostly just bone. Roasting at a lower temp for several hours is just what I did. Not wanting the onion and carrots to blacken, i removed those after the first hour of roasting and saved in the fridge until time to simmer. I shopped specifically for preparing this recipe, and glad I planned ahead. The end result was magnificant.. a well-rounded robust stock with the perfect flavor. This recipe yielded the full 8 cups (2 quarts). Next time I will double this recipe (using a 12quart stock pot) to yield a gallon. Gotta make sure you leave it covered while it simmers, otherwise all your good stock will evaporate. [To those who low-rate this and other recipes after having altered the recipe, remove your rating as it isn't fair to the submitter].

Mapled Ham

Reviewed: Jun. 19, 2005
This was a big Fathers Day hit at our dinner table. I really wanted to try this glaze but all I had to work with was a large bone-in half-ham. So I baked it following the package directions, then the last hour is when I added pineapple rings, cherries and cloves. It made a beautiful presentation and was just as tasty as it looked pretty. I arranged ham slices on a pretty platter, poured some of the glaze over the meat, and garnished the edges with the pineapple and cherries. Very nice.

Caramelized Baked Chicken

Reviewed: Mar. 22, 2000
I found the trick to getting the sauce to caramelize. Lay a piece of foil just on the top of your baking dish during baking. Turn the chicken about every 20 to 30 minutes to coat with sauce. This dish requires 1 hour & 45 minutes to 2 hours baking time to complete the caramelization process.

Easy Punch

Reviewed: Oct. 16, 2005
I made this for a small semi-formal school banquet for about 40 students and faculty. This was the perfect punch recipe for such an occasion as the ingredients we cost-friendly and there was plenty enough to go around, even for seconds. I used strawberry Koolaid for the flavor. It was delicious and everyone loved it. It suited the occasion perfectly. Thanks.. It's a Keeper!

Old Settlers' Baked Beans

Reviewed: Jan. 7, 2011
This was a nice dish accompanying our cookout and we received compliments. However, the next time I'm omitting the ground beef from the recipe. Sweetened beef just didn't taste right.

Best Lemonade Ever

Reviewed: Apr. 17, 2003
"I'm in heaven...."(singing)! I must say, this is some **GOOD STUFF!!** It tastes so much like Dairy Queen's lemonade. It's chilling in the fridge and I'm just about to treat my children to their first homemade lemonade on this hot, Southern spring day. Fantastic, delicious, 5*****stars!!!

Fresh Broccoli Salad

Reviewed: Sep. 3, 2001
I love this sweet/tangy salad. I substituted sunflower seeds for the almonds, and used golden raisins. I'm taking this to our family's Labor Day cookout. It will be a perfect accompanyment to the ribeye's and garlic bread.

Bottom Round Roast with Onion Gravy

Reviewed: Oct. 17, 2005
I almost passed this recipe up after reading some of the reviews. Glad I tried it because it turned out great. I cooked the roast just as the recipe suggested, and it is true... lifting the lid to check the progress during cooking only lengthened my cooking time...darnit. Reading others' suggestions, I added extra herbs/spices (Season Salt in place of salt, Tony Chachere's Creole Seasoning, Cavender's Greek, a pinch or two of Thyme, and two whole peeled cloves of garlic). I decreased the onions to 3 instead of 6, and substituted Beef Broth for the water... great results. The roast was tender and juicy, and the onion gravy was to die for. Husband and kids ate it ALL up.

Roasted Autumn Root Vegetables

Reviewed: Dec. 7, 2012
Vegetable broth and goat cheese was not on hand, so I substituted for it with a few splashes of white wine and shredded parmesean/romano cheeses and it was still fabulous.

Roasted Garlic Lemon Broccoli

Reviewed: Nov. 14, 2010
Simple, fun, delicious and healthy way to cook your broccoli. There were no leftovers. The second time I used this recipe, I had a head of fresh cauliflower that needed to be used. I prepared it the same way and it was fabulous, and I'm sure there are other veggies this method would work well for also :)

Restaurant-Style Potato Salad

Reviewed: Jul. 5, 2003
I'll be the first to say right off that I've never been a fan of potato salad.....it has to have a certain taste/texture for me to take even a second bite. But after I read all of the ratings/reviews for this recipe, I had to give it a try for our big July 4th family cookout. I was nervous about making it because my husband first of all normally hates the stuff, and second, I've never been what you would call a very good potato salad maker. Not only did my husband devour this potato salad, but so did all the rest of our family and guests, even a 15mo. old! Everyone was helping themselves to seconds, even thirds until the serving dish was empty. I didn't have pimento or fresh white onion on hand, so I used dehydrated minced onions, and omitted the pimento. The flavors and textures mingled together to make the perfect taste. This was so much better than I've had in a restaurant. This was some good stuff :)

Grilled Shrimp Scampi

Reviewed: Jan. 14, 2005
This is a very delicious shrimp recipe, and I rated it a 5 even though I kinda messed it up (I will make again). What I did wrong: After marinating, I skewered alternating shrimp with onion, bell pepper, and mushrooms. Adding veggies to the kabobs is where I messed up because it caused the shrimp not to lay flat on the surface of the grill and it cooked unevenly. As a result, I had to cook the kabobs longer for total doneness, so some of the shrimp were tough and overcooked, whereas others were undercooked. Next time, I will skewer shrimp on their own skewers. The veggies were a hit, so they'll get their own skewers, too.

Bacon Popcorn

Reviewed: Jun. 5, 2013
1/2 cup of bacon grease goes a long way in my dutch oven (1/2 cup grease to 1/3 cup kernels is grease overload), so of course I doubled up on the kernels. I love it when the popcorn raises the lid right up off the pot lol. And I don't care for adding the shredded cheese since it sinks straight to the bottom of the bowl anyway and that's no fun....., so instead we tried the White Cheddar Popcorn Seasoning. It was great! We also tried Kettle Corn Seasoning and it totally rocked the bacon flavor too!

Sweet Restaurant Slaw

Delicious but only 1/4 cup sugar was all it took to achieve the perfect amount of sweetness to this wonderful slaw :)

Grilled Bacon Jalapeno Wraps

Reviewed: Feb. 1, 2012
F A B U L O U S versatile basic recipe.. I went a little beyond plain cream cheese by folding in a shredded mexican cheese blend, a dash of worcestershire, garlic & onion powder to make a tasty cream cheese mixture to stuff the peppers. Cheers! They were awesome! No leftovers here and the family is begging for more.

Red Potato Salad

Reviewed: Jul. 12, 2011
What really made this salad complete for my family was the addition of crispy crumbled bacon pieces. Without the bacon, it's still one of the most fabulous potato salad recipes I've ever tried.

Soft Sugar Cookies V

Reviewed: Oct. 17, 2006
Beautiful cookies! After years of searching, finally a cut-out sugar cookie recipe I'm keeping. My cookie dough was perfect and not flimsy at all. Miraculously my cut-outs did not loose their form when transfering to the cookie sheet... wow. That had been a big problem in the past using other recipes. These were simple to throw together in a pinch, I had most all ingredients on hand, and the result was a very soft, chewy, buttery cookie that held delightfully. I am so happy with these! Thanks!
