Cornbread II

Reviewed: Aug. 20, 2009
I'm from the south and grew up on classic buttermilk cornbread. I've since moved and forgot my family recipe, so I looked up a recipe here to jog my memory. This was a very good base recipe. The result was a crispy bottom, and soft moist middle. The perfect cornbread in my eyes. However, I did change a few things. First, I used an iron skillet. If you want a good crispy crust you must you an iron skillet. I preheated the oven to 400 degrees as the recipe says, then I put a cool iron skillet in the oven with a thin layer of vegetable oil on the bottom in the oven to heat. Heating the skillet before adding the mixture will prevent the bread from sticking. After preparing the skillet I Mixed the recipe together as directed except for a few minor exceptions. I did not use potato flakes or baking powder, I used buttermilk (this is also a must for cornbread), and I added a cup of cornmeal instead of 1/2 cup. Then I carefully took the hot skillet out of the oven (be careful, by now its HOT) Added the mixture, and baked for 20 minutes. After the 20 minutes was up I changed the stove to high broil to brown the top, not required but it adds a little extra something. If you do broil your break make sure to stay with it and watch, it shouldn't take more than a few seconds, 30 tops. Leaving it on broil too long will burn the bread. Good luck to anyone who makes this and thinks to Chefkimber for submitting a wonderful base recipe.

Peanut Butter Quesadillas

Reviewed: May 22, 2009
I just made this using peanutbutter and bananas. I spread the peanutbutter as directed then layered the bananas half way across. Folded it and fried it as directed. It turned out a nice golden color and tastes pretty good. It's not my favorite snack but it was extremely easy and the results were worth the effort. My only complaint is that it seems kinda dry. Of course, most peanutbutter sandwiches do so that isn't really much of a complaint. I also chopped up some carrots and celery to go along with it, dipping them in peanutbutter or ranch dressing. Overall a nice, mildly healthy snack. I'll probably make it again sprinkling cinnamon and sugar on the torilla as someone else mentioned. About the messiness some have mentioned, I let mine cool for a minute and it wasn't messy at all. Not even the pan was messy. Also, clean up was a breeze. Took all of 2 minutes, making me love this about 100x more.

Mini Tuna Casseroles

Reviewed: Dec. 19, 2008
This is really good! This reminds me of tuna helper but much better and healthier. I did it a bit different though. I did the onions and milk as the directions stated then added 1/4 cup of chopped green and red bell peppers from the garden, a carrot, and a stalk of celery. I didn't have any potato chips so I substituted with cornflakes and french fried onions. I mixed in the stated amount of tuna and pepper,then baked it in a small dish for 20 minutes. I didn't have an 8oz baking dish so mine was 8x4 baking dish. It was too big and had a lot of space around the edges, but it didn't hurt anything. It turned out creamy and delicious. I'd like to try it with the original ingredients sometime.

Never Enough Green Bean Casserole

Reviewed: Dec. 10, 2008
This is the greatest greenbean casserole ever! I usually don't care for them but this one, wow! Instant family fave on holidays or any time. Most of the ingredients are always readily available at my house, making it quick and easy. Good compliment to steak, chicken, or turkey. I can't say enough good things about it, seriously!

Delicious Black Bean Burritos

Reviewed: Oct. 4, 2007
Awesome! These are my favorite burritos. I had to do them a little differently though. As soon as I finished making them I tipped the bowl and lost every bit of it. haha so starting over I had to make them without the cream cheese. I also replaced the red pepper and onion with 1/4th of a bag of frozen peppers and onions and the minced jalapenos with minced chili peppers because it's impossible to find minced jalapenos where I live. I made up for the cream cheese with white cheese sauce and poured medium salsa over the finished product and it turned out great.

Garbanzo Bean Patties

Reviewed: Aug. 17, 2005
These were pretty good I'll attempt them again sometime. I had to use oregano instead of thyme and they'd probably taste better with the real ingredients. They fried up and resembled a tuna patty to me. Next time I might try some rice or oat meal in place of some of the bread crums though.

Very good, my mom and I love this.I'm thinking of taking it to the family reunion next year. Also I found it was easier to just use a plain box of macaroni and cheese than buying the ingredients seperate.
