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!

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!

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!

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.

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.

Speedy Oven Fudge

Reviewed: Dec. 20, 2011
Fudge intimidates me, but I mastered this one. Cooked according to instructions and it came out perfectly. Poured it into a buttered 11x7 dish and it cuts beautifully. I forgot to add the vanilla, but it's still tasty. Thanks for the recipe. It's a keeper!

Cajun Crab Cakes (No Breadcrumbs)

Reviewed: Feb. 25, 2012
So flavorful with all the spices and you can taste the crab because of the lack of breadcrumbs that are so much a part of other crab cake recipes. I broiled mine and they were light and tasty. I'll try frying and baking in the future just to see what a difference it makes. Thanks for the wonderful recipe!

Cheesy Ranch Potato Bake

Reviewed: Apr. 20, 2012
This simple potato dish turned out way better than I had hoped. I'm choosey about my Ranch dressing, so I picked the brand I like best: O'Charley's. I did use the entire 16 oz. of the dressing in the casserole and I'm glad I did. It was rich and creamy mixed in with the melted cheese. Thanks for this great side dish that my husband and I really enjoyed! Oh, and I didn't think the butter made the dish greasy, although the creaminess of the melted cheese and dressing would probably mean you could leave it out altogether.

Honey Mustard Dressing

Reviewed: Aug. 3, 2012
This dressing is fantastic! The only things I did differently was to mix some Grey Poupon course ground mustard in with the Dijon mustard, and I didn't add the lemon because I didn't have one. I prefer to make freshly prepared salad dressings and not eat the chemical-ladened dressings at the store. This is a keeper!

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!

Chinese Cabbage Salad I

Reviewed: Oct. 8, 2012
Delicious! and simpler than another similar slaw recipe I have. The only thing I did differently is use sesame seeds since I had no cashews and toasted them and the ramen noodles in a frying pan on the stove instead of the oven. Thought I could control the toasting this way. I also added a T of sesame oil since I love the flavor it imparts in dishes. Thank you!

French Leek Pie

Reviewed: Dec. 3, 2012
One of our favorite recipes from Allrecipes. Whenever I make pie crust for dessert pies, I will make extra so I can fit this dish into our menu plan. It is simple, rich, and delicious. My husband loves it. Since it's so decadent, we pair it with a simple salad with a tart vinaigrette dressing.

Alfredo Sauce

Reviewed: Mar. 4, 2013
One of the best Alfredo sauces we've found. I followed the recipe exactly, except for adding the parsley at the end because I didn't have any on hand and I like my Alfredo sauces with just the cream, butter, and cheese. Thanks!

Crab Quiche

Reviewed: Jun. 3, 2013
Wonderful base recipe for quiche. I make my own pie crusts, so I didn't buy one from the store. And I don't like fake crab so I used real. Other than these minor changes, I followed the recipe and it came out perfect. I like the instruction about cooking it and then turning off and letting it set up in the warm oven. I do this with cheesecakes and it works out great. My son who likes fish and salmon loaf/croquettes tried the quich but didn't like it, but my husband and I loved it. Thanks!

Best Oven Baked French Toast

Reviewed: Jul. 22, 2013
Oh, my goodness. This is one of the most delicious baked french toast recipes I've ever had. I first made it for Christmas last year, and used ordinary, cheap sandwich bread with the crusts on and it was OK. But now I buy the good quality farmhouse bread and cut the crusts off. I add more brown sugar to the bottom of the dish, too so when I cut it and flip it over on the plate, it's buttery and sweet. Served with grits and breakfast meat this is one of our favorite meals. Oh, and I don't refrigerate over night either and it's still great. I will for this year's Christmas morning meal. Thanks!

Amish White Bread

Reviewed: Jul. 29, 2013
Best bread recipe I've ever tried. Make two loaves, or one loaf and rolls or buns, every week. I haven't made sandwiches with store bought bread for months and don't plan to. This bread makes every sandwich I make special and delicious. On weekend morning I put some pats of butter on a slice and bake it for 10 mins., then spread some grape jelly on it and eat it with my coffee. Will be no more settling for me.

Corn Dogs

Reviewed: Sep. 7, 2013
This was my first time making homemade corn dogs and it's a lot of fun and not as much trouble as I thought. The batter is delicious and tastes better than the frozen kind (I left out the pepper because I don't care too much for pepper in certain foods). I'm a vegetarian so it's been a long time since I had one at the fairgrounds, but my corn dogs made with Morningstar Farm veggie dogs came out perfectly and tasted like I remember them. Will definitely place this in my permanent recipe box. Thanks!
