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.

Baked Corn

Reviewed: Nov. 29, 2002
This was really good. It was a breeze to throw together, and was a great side dish to add to our Thanksgiving table. It paired up wonderfully with the turnip greens, and overall, everyone raved over it. Very good, simple dish. I gave it a 5-star rating.

Sweet Restaurant Slaw

Reviewed: Apr. 29, 2012
Delicious but only 1/4 cup sugar was all it took to achieve the perfect amount of sweetness to this wonderful slaw :)

BBQ Glazed Homemade Meatballs

Reviewed: Apr. 13, 2009
Scaled the recipe to accommadate 18 servings, and served these as main course for a bit of a non-traditional easter meal. Not only were they fun to eat, they were delicious and went nicely with coleslaw, pasta salad and deviled eggs. Everyone loved them.

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.

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!

Awesome Slow Cooker Pot Roast

Reviewed: Aug. 6, 2000
My family loves their roast this way! I shake a little worcestershire and pepper on the roast before I add the can(s) of mushroom soup....I also throw in a few cloves of garlic. I've never added water though because it makes the gravy watery. This is a great dish to serve company.

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!!!

Baked Whole Cauliflower

Reviewed: Feb. 16, 2004
Lol.. my kids walked into the kitchen and saw this big thing I had just pulled from the oven and said "Mom, What's THAT???" They love their cauliflower, and boy did they inhale it. After they finished, they all ran up to the stove to see if there were any "seconds"... but it was already gone. I steamed mine in the microwave, and it turned out great. Had a little trouble getting the crumb mixture to stick to the surface, just had to work with it a little. I served it as a side to the "Easy Caramelized Onion Pork Chops" recipe on this site. It made a very nice family meal.

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.

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.

Sugar Cookie Icing

Reviewed: Oct. 17, 2006
This icing smells as wonderful as its tastes. One minor problem mixing this together: 2 teaspoons milk and corn syrup was not near enough to make even a paste... it was more like a big lumpy pile, so I adjusted the recipe to tablespoon measurements and got the workable consistency I was looking for. I used this icing on Sugar Cookies V from this site and my cookies turned out to be the best I have ever had.

Cocktail Meatballs

Reviewed: Jan. 1, 2007
This was perfect for our New Years Eve party. I am definitely making these again. I didn't have time to make homemade meatballs so I picked up a bag of 80-count Homestyle Meatballs from Walmart. Other than that, I followed the sauce recipe to the "T" - THEY WERE WONDERFUL!!! THANKS!
