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!

Outback Onion Soup

Reviewed: Dec. 14, 2008
I never had the onion soup at Outback, but this is one of the best soups I've ever had. I made some homemade bread and a salad to go with the soup. My husband loved it. I'm giving some leftovers to my mom tomorrow to help her get over a cold. I followed the recipe to a T. Will make this again and again. Thank you so much! ETA: You can temper the water/flour mixture with about a cup of the hot broth. That should make enough liquid to slowly whisk it in without any lumps. It's wet enough to stir in without breaking up the onions, so no need to remove the onions. Again, great soup!

Au Gratin Potatoes

Reviewed: Jul. 11, 2009
The best Au Gratin potatoes ever. I kept the onions in the recipe because it adds flavor to the potato/cheese sauce combination. The house smelled delicious for hours afterwards! Thanks so much. I've tried other Au Gratin recipes but none compare to this one. This is a keeper.

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!

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.

Absolutely Fabulous Greek/House Dressing

Reviewed: Dec. 3, 2012
I prefer to make my own dressings rather than buy the artificial-tasting ones from the grocery stores. And why not? They're so simple to make. This delicious dressing recipe is light with just the right amount of tartness and flavor. I use this on a simple salad I prepare with the rich French Leek Pie recipe at AR. Thanks for this great recipe!

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!

Black Bean and Salsa Soup

Reviewed: May 25, 2008
I've got some of this delicious soup cooking in the crock pot as I'm writing this review. I love the way it makes the house smell. The recipe is simple to make and hearty to eat. The first time I made it I blended both cans of the beans. While I enjoyed the texture, my husband recommended leaving one can whole the next time. Now I just blend one can of beans with my immersion blender, then add the salsa and blend, then add the whole beans and spices. The crock pot does all the rest. We eat it with cheese quesadillas and garnish with onions, sour cream, and cheese. It's a wonderful recipe.

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!

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!

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.

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!

Nice change from regular quesadillas. I loved the sweetness of this dish, although my husband prefers spicier quesadillas.

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!

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.

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!
