Egg in a Boat

Reviewed: Dec. 20, 2011
I saw this cooked in the movie Moonstruck back in the eighties. I tried it for the first time yesterday and loved it. I used a nice, dense piece of white bread. I cut out a hole with a small jelly glass, melted some butter in a pan, laid the bread down to brown, cracked an egg into the middle, added a pinch of salt and pepper, then flipped it to brown on the other side. Delicious! I don't like runny yolks so I cooked mine till just done. I spread a little grape jelly on the bread and cut a piece of toast and a piece of the egg for the perfect bite. An easier way of eating egg and toast, if that doesn't sound too odd.

Boudreaux's Zydeco Stomp Gumbo

Reviewed: Oct. 2, 2011
Excellent gumbo recipe. I made this weeks ago but didn't have any cajun seasoning or red pepper, but the 1/4 cajun seasoning and the pepper really spices this up and makes it delicious instead of just good. I made the roux a dark brown and let the cajun seasoning heat up with the roux. I also used half a cup of olive oil and added some butter to make the roux. I know, it's annoying when people make changes in the recipe, but this recipe is good just as it is or gives you some wiggle room to change things up a bit and make it your own.

Best Peanut Butter Cookies Ever

Reviewed: Sep. 1, 2011
This is the easiest peanut butter cookie recipe ever. It makes a crunchy cookie, which is what I prefer. Thanks so much!

Cajun Crabmeat Au Gratin

Reviewed: Aug. 11, 2011
This is the second time I made this dish (first time was about two years ago) and it's as great as I remembered it. Very rich and delicious. I don't like American cheese so I used 1 cup of Cheddar in the dish and one cup on top after baking. I may add the green onions in the mix next time or leave them off. I felt they subtracted from the overall excellence of the casserole. Will be making this again and again. Thanks!

Pecan Turtle Bars

Reviewed: Feb. 24, 2011
Followed to a T and used a 13x9 pan. My bars were so flat and looked nothing like the other recipe photos. Very buttery but has a good taste. Won't make again, though.

Black Bean and Corn Quesadillas

Reviewed: Dec. 31, 2010
Nice change from regular quesadillas. I loved the sweetness of this dish, although my husband prefers spicier quesadillas.

Creamy Pimento Cheese

Reviewed: Sep. 11, 2010
The best pimento cheese spread I've ever made or tasted. I've tried recipes before that was too simple: mayo, cheese, and pimentos. I think a great pimento cheese recipe calls for more than that, and this recipe has it. I also added the pimento juice and the pimento flavor is incredible. I only had a medium cheddar, but I believe it would be better with extra-sharp, which is what the recipe calls for. Thanks for sharing!

Barbecued Shrimp

Reviewed: Sep. 7, 2010
I'm giving this four stars because my husband loved it, but I thought it was way too peppery and garlicky. I woke up in the middle of the night tasting these spices, and, yes, I did brush my teeth before going to bed. It's similar to a recipe I found in a coveted cajun recipe book, but that recipe does not call for so much pepper or garlic and it's much tastier, IMO.

Aunt Edith's Baked Pancake

Reviewed: Sep. 7, 2010
I was so sick of frozen waffles and traditional pancakes, so I tried this easy recipe. I slid it onto a big plate, cleaned off the center of the kitchen table, and we tore off big chunks and put on our plates to drizzled with maple syrup. Very delicious and one of my favorite new recipes to make. Thanks!

Chili Sauce Chicken

Reviewed: Sep. 7, 2010
I don't eat meat, but I have started cooking more meat for my husband and child. My husband loved this dish! I tasted the sauce and thought it was a little heavy on the basil, but he didn't complain. I didn't have any chicken broth or white wine, so I'm wondering if that would have added even more flavor. Definitely a keeper. Thanks!

Creamy Au Gratin Potatoes

Reviewed: Sep. 7, 2010
Tasty recipe for this great comfort food dish. I thought it needed a little more salt or some kind of spicy kick, though. But it's a great base recipe and I will continue to make it for my family.

Apple Betty

Reviewed: Sep. 7, 2010
I made this for a family get together and everyone raved about it. I served it with a scoop of good vanilla ice cream, and the creaminess of the ice cream with the sweet, crumbly topping was out of this world. It was easy as pie to make, too. Thank you so much!

Double Fudge Kahlua Brownies

Reviewed: Sep. 4, 2010
Perhaps I did something wrong? The brownie was so dry it was almost inedible. I sifted the flour and THEN measured 1 1/3 cup of sifted flour. Is this right? Or is it 1 1/3 cup flour, sifted.

Mushroom and Potato Chowder

Reviewed: Jun. 28, 2010
I made it exactly as the recipe called for and it is delicious. I love how the mushrooms get a meaty texture to them from simmering. Will make this one often. Thanks for sharing.

Pasta with Tomato Cream Sauce

Reviewed: Sep. 2, 2009
This sauce has a very light taste that I prefer over the darker red pasta sauces. I think the only change we made was adding a bit more garlic. As someone suggested, make sure you get a good quality sauce. I think that makes a difference. This one is a keeper. Thanks!
