Baked Pears

Reviewed: May 26, 2011
Here's something really easy. Grease a pan. Cut the peeled/cored pears into chunks. It doesn't matter how many you use. Grease all the chunks with some oil. Use your hands. Use any jam, not jelly, that you like. Use about 1/4 cup or more. Using clean hands, massage the pears with your fingers to distribute the jam. Bake until bubbly or hot. This is good cold or hot, with topping such as granola or cream or not. You can use just about any fruit. My favorite is plum butter jam with apples. Have eaten this all my life.

Baked Cod

Reviewed: Apr. 20, 2011
This cod recipe is right on. One change was that I used cracker crumbs because I had those on hand. Instead of brushing the dressing on the fish, I just use my clean hands to "massage" the fish with the dressing. Used the crumbs very lightly. The oven temp and timing is perfect. I also drizzled a bit of Tuscan oil over the fish when it was finished. Served with roasted purple potatoes and roasted butternut squash chunks. My husband's comment. "I'd sure eat that again" Thanks for sharing. It's in my recipe box.

Carrot Ring

Reviewed: Mar. 4, 2011
I love this. So does my husband. Try these changes. 3-4 cups carrots, 2-4 TBS chopped crystalized ginger, tsp of orange zest and tsp of lemon zest, small can drained pineapple tidbits and some cinnamon to taste. I bake in 8" square pan. Bake for about 25 minutes or a bit longer if needed. What I really appreciate is the low calorie count even with the pineapple addition. I do think that this recipe should be reclassifiend under snacks!

Turkey Picadillo II

Reviewed: Jul. 30, 2010
I am new to spicy food. I added the cayenne pepper a tiny bit at a time til I got to the spice level that was good for me. I too used prunes and doubled the amount used. (Love them!)Served with fresh bakery Kaiser rolls. This recipe is so great. Sweet and spicy at the same time. Just loved it. Am so glad that I ran out and bought all the ingredients so I could make as written. Thanks for sharing, Jeidippins. Just one little suggestion...remove the bay leaves before eating!!!

Turkey and Quinoa Meatloaf

Reviewed: Jul. 27, 2010
This is great and easy just as written. The hot sauce makes this so tasty. We eat a lot of quinoa so I make a big batch and freeze it in 4oz servings. I use it just like I would "instant rice". Since I'm cooking for two, I made 4 loaves shaped like footballs. We eat two and have an extra meal for later. Like the quinoa, this freezes really well. Just remember to adjust your cooking time. I started checking after a half hour with a thermometer. I also made the topping a little runny. I made little troughs in the loaves, about the size of a pencil, and poured the topping in those. The sauce seeped into the meat and wow! Think I will double the topping next time! One more thought. Try baking the meatlof in a cupcake pan. This way you have little kid size portions. Thanks for the recipe, Drew, it will go on our table many a time.

Chicken with Red Chile Sauce and Sausage (Pollo con Salsa Rojo y Chorizo)

Reviewed: Jul. 26, 2010
Great sauce. My first attempt using dried chiles. The sauce is so good that I think I'm going to skip the chicken next time and just pour it over roasted veggies and rice. Will cook it for the hour first so it will thicken. Thanks for sharing.

Tangy Jicama Slaw

Reviewed: Jul. 16, 2010
I am new to jicama. This is so fresh and tasty that I will be preparing it a lot. I used a fresh orange and added a sweet red bell pepper. I also added 2 TBS of orange marmalade and the zest from the lime and the orange. No salt and no pepper. This is great as a salad, a snack and also tasty over fish or chicken or pork. I think the word "slaw" probably turns cooks away from trying this. I'm sure glad I did try it. Thanks for sharing. Also, the nice thing about the jicama is that it doesn't turn brown, just stays nice and white!

Tzatziki Sauce (Yogurt and Cucumber Dip)

Reviewed: Sep. 20, 2009
Read all the reviews and took advice from a number. Used No Fat Greek yogurt, chopped the cucumber by hand and added 1/4 c each, dried parsley and dill. Also added 2 T dried onion, soaked in a little water, 5 crushed cloves and salt-garlic blend to taste. Added 2 tsp of sugar to win over my 3 young granddaughters as they only like the "mayo junk" dips. We served it on fish. The granddaughters loved it!! Told me, "Grandma, you rock!" Thanks for the great recipe and thanks for all the great reviews.

Bacon Water Chestnut Rolls

Reviewed: Nov. 26, 2008
Have had this so many times at card groups and loved them. So....I made them for an appetizer for Thanksgiving. Quintupled the recipe...that's times 5! I took a reviewer's hint and used precooked bacon and only baked the last 30 minutes. They all burned!! I know my oven was set at 350 so that wasn't the reason they burned. SO everyone...I would NOT use precooked bacon AND I would check that oven at maybe 15 minutes.

Cucumber Sunomono

Reviewed: Oct. 19, 2008
This is so fast and easy. Read the reviews first and used less salt...I used sea salt. Also used the fresh ginger that comes in tubes that you can freeze. I also used 1 large English cucumber as suggested. These are actually better than the cucumbers that are served at PF Chang's!!Thanks for sharing this recipe.

Eggplant Tomato Bake

Reviewed: Sep. 4, 2008
My husband and I loved this. Served it with white fish. Put eggplant and fish on same large cookie sheet and baked together...20 minutes in a 400 degree oven. I also peeled the eggplant and used extra spices and oil. Also, used a sharp swiss cheese in place of the parmesian and added a sprinkling of crushed Ritz crackers on top of the tomatoes. What an easy way to make dinner. Thanks for a great recipe.

Banana Nut Bread III

Reviewed: Dec. 3, 2007
Tried this with my 4 year old grandson doing the measuring, egg cracking and stirring! Never changed a thing in the recipe. Made one big loaf and baked for the appropriate time. Best moist, banana bread we ever had. If a 4 year old can make this, anyone can. Thanks for a great treat.

Chocolate Sheet Cake II

Reviewed: Feb. 12, 2007
We used to call this Dean's Sheet Cake. Lost the recipe when we remodeled our kitchen! I always add a "glaze" of 1/2 cup butter, 6 Tbs of milk and 4-6 Tbs of cocoa. Melt in pan on stove or microwave. Add 3 cups powdered sugar. Mix well by hand. As soon as cake is out of oven, poke it all over with a toothpick. Pour the glaze over and it will melt on the cake and dribble down those holes. The top will shine. Cool and cut into bars. This seem to keep forever (if it lasts) when refrigerated. Now my new kitchen is complete. Thanks for sharing.

Sarge's EZ Pulled Pork BBQ

Reviewed: Aug. 5, 2005
This is delicious. Am new to pulled pork and have never cooked it before. It was so simple. I learned that pork butt is the same as pork shoulder and that this method can be used with a high or low setting on the crock pot. Also, you can't taste the coffee. After having nothing left of 7 pounds of this recipe, my family of grown kids and their families requested it again 4 days later!!! I served it plain and we passed the mustard based BBQ sauce that we picked up "down south". Made gravy with the broth and used it over rice. You can bet that this is going to become a staple. Thanks Sarge!!!

Best Brownies

Reviewed: Jun. 21, 2005
These were so moist yet sorta cakelike at the same time. Cut so easily after cooling. Changed the butter to Crisco with 3 tsp of water per the conversion table on the can of Crisco. Also had 2 yr old grandson helping and had batter on fingers and countertops...but the brownies still turned out! What an easy, great treat! Thanks.
