Kathy's Award Winning Barbeque Sauce

Reviewed: Aug. 10, 2005
Just fabulous! This worked out great and I'll be using it again! Changes? Pureed half an onion and 2 garlic cloves (I'll try roasted garlic next time) and only 1 tbsp liquid smoke. Thanks for sharing!

Just another 5* rating to add... delicious, moist and a definate keeper! Left out the nuts so my son could take it to school and also made it in the 9x13 and baked it for 40 minutes. Thanx soo much!

Whipped Shortbread Cookies

Reviewed: Jun. 13, 2005
I have found that there are 2 secrets to this recipe that have to be followed or disaster strikes as so many have noted. First, it has to be BUTTER... and nothing but butter. Margarine cannot be substituted for butter. :) The second is the beating time. Personally I abide by the following method: Beat butter by itself for 5 mins. Add icing sugar and beat another 5 mins. add flour in 3 equal portions (1/2 C at a time) beating for 2 minutes after additions 1 & 2 and then 10 mins after the last addition. So thats 14 more minutes than this author says but thats what works for me every time! As well I bake at 300F for 5-7 mins. These are absolutely fabulous cookies... they usually never make it to the serving plate! Yummy!

Downeast Maine Pumpkin Bread

Reviewed: Aug. 31, 2005
This is most definately the best pumpkin loaf recipe I've come across... my search is over! I doubled the spices to make it perfect for us! I rate this a 4 is because in the 7x3 aluminum foil pans it takes 70 mins which causes the edges to dry out too much. I will have to experiment with standard size pans to keep the cooking time closer to the 50 minute mark. Thanx for sharing!

Banana Pancakes I

Reviewed: Apr. 25, 2006
My eldest who normally chokes one regular pancake down for me, ate 2 large cakes and took another to school! I added a splash each of vanilla, cinnamon and mini chocolate chips. I also added close to a quarter cup more of flour to make it to the consistancy I'm comfortable with! 2½ minutes on each side and they made me the worlds greatest mom for the day! Thank you, thank you!

Honey Baked Chicken II

Reviewed: May 12, 2006
YUM YUM YUM.... FOR LOW CARB DIETS! I just substituted 1/2 cup sugar twin brown sugar for the honey and it has just the sweetness my hubby desires on his low carb diet (he's lost 45 pounds since January)! Quick and easy and very tasty! Thanx!

Bacon Cheddar Deviled Eggs

Reviewed: Jun. 5, 2006
An excellent and easy switch out for any occasion! Our Mother's Day gathering had several 'low-carb' dieters in attendance and it was a definately a hit with all of them... I think though that my son was a little sneaky and ate a good portion of them!

Best Bread Machine Bread

Reviewed: Jun. 9, 2006
After developing arthritis several years ago I broke down and submitted to a bread machine for making my dough. This classic french bread recipe is great but since I only use all purpose flour, I reduce to 2½ C and I've only ever used 1 tsp of sugar. I shape it and let it rise 45 minutes before baking in the oven. If I use quick rise yeast I simply put it on top of all the other ingredients... and use a rapid setting if using the machine to bake it.

Pecan Praline Cookies

Reviewed: Jun. 19, 2006
I finally manage to scoop this recipe from my aunt to compare with this recipe since a few of the reviews scared me. The recipes are identical except an explicit statement that says: DO NOT BOIL the mix but simply heat and stir until brown sugar is completely dissolved and to let it cool for about 10 minutes before pouring slowly over the graham crackers. This is a little time consuming but definately worth it in the end! Mine turned out just as anuty has always made them :) Update: Apologies, I didnt look at the pan size, my cookie sheet is roughly 12x16 and fits 35 crackers perfectly.

Asian Pasta Salad with Beef, Broccoli and Bean Sprouts

Reviewed: Jul. 28, 2006
I give this a 5* but not for the reasons you might think! Please read on. The salad turned out nice. Since my diet really limited the content it wasnt much more than a basic pasta salad with green onions, cilantro and I added some cubed cheddar. I made the dressing with reduced sodium soy and held the pepper flakes and mayo, however, after tasting it I decided to add the mayo, thankfully, it made a great difference for me and I enjoyed it a lot. So here's the kicker and I cant believe the results: I used the basic dressing sans mayo and increased to ½ C reduced sodium soya (I even took a walk on the wild side and used the pepper flakes!) as a marinade for the pork! Fabulous! I loved it, I loved it, I loved it! I will try this again with chicken in the salad or as a marinade! Thanks

Quick Chicken And Wine

Reviewed: Jul. 28, 2006
A real keeper! I cut the chicken crosswise into chunks rather than strips, dusted with flour seasoned with salt & pepper, then into the egg and finally into the parmesan I seasoned with garlic and onion powders. They browned beautifully in mild olive oil and finished, covered with foil in the oven that I had pre-heated to 350 and then turned off. I I kept the sauce separate and drizzled it over the chicken at serving time, with rice and green onion as a side. For the kids I made a creamy bbq-hickory dipping sauce that went over really well. Thanks, I really enjoyed it and I'm going to make it again substituting the chiken with fresh walleye/pickerel.

Pumpkin Funnel Cakes

Reviewed: Nov. 17, 2007
I had several extra cans of pumpkin left over and was looking to do something different and kid friendly and I couldnt have picked a better recipe! This was the first time I ever made funnel cakes and until I found my rhythm, the first few were a little funky looking but let me say that the kids thought they tasted great, even my extraordinarily picky nephew loved them. Thanx for sharing, will make again!

Sandy's Chocolate Cake

Reviewed: Jan. 22, 2008
If you're looking for a cake that holds together well, is moist, plenty chocolaty and ices easily for great presentation, then this is the cake for you! I made this exactly as directed for my husbands 55th Birthday and it was definately gorgeous to look at and well received over all. The temperature and cooking time were perfect and when serving guests I would NOT change a thing, however, we found the texture was a smidge too dense for our personal liking and I will be eliminating an egg next time around. Thank you for sharing.

Tangy Honey Glazed Ham

Reviewed: Mar. 23, 2008
Seeing how I've made this ham several times I figuered I'd better give it the great rating it deserves. I ensure the temp is 325ºF or less and I gently cover the the ham (not the entire pan) with a piece of foil to prevent the edges from over cooking. I double the sauce, baste frequently for the last 45 minutes and serve the remaining glaze on the side. This is a no-fail recipe and today for the first time I switched out the honey for pure maple syrup and it got rave reviews all the way around. Thanks for sharing!

Artichoke Spinach Lasagna

Reviewed: Apr. 2, 2008
This is a definate keeper and dare I say I might be so inclined to make this my "usual" lasagna!!!!! I used no-boil noodles and an entire large bag of fresh baby spinach. So as not to scare the family I threw the feta right into the sauce and once the noodles expanded (approx 30 minutes)I topped the edges with some more cheese. Everyone, especially the kids, loved it! Thanks for sharing!

Gordo's Good Venison

Reviewed: Mar. 18, 2006
I'm soooo disappointed! Disappointed that I wasn't able to partake in this recipe! I did all the preparation so all my husband had to do was throw his chops on the grill when he got home. He raved and said they were the best tasting vension chops I've ever made! My 3 yr old loved them too and so I guess I'm going to have to make them again when I can be around to have my fair share! Thanx!

Green Bean and Portobello Mushroom Casserole

Reviewed: Mar. 28, 2005
Despite switching out the cheddar for deep fried onions, I give this recipe a perfect rating! The taste, the presentation, the ease and make-ahead ability deserve nothing less! I've been ill and it was the first dish I've made in months for the big Easter dinner (45+ people) and it was more than a hit! I loved the mushroom sauce so much before adding the green beans I turned around and made it a second time as chunky soup! The family devoured it! I've since made it again with whole & powdered garlic, regular mushroom soup and plain mushrooms... again a hit with everyone, even added left over rice for a twist the next day! Thanx a million for sharing!
