Southern Fried Green Tomatoes

Reviewed: May 31, 2006
OMGOODNESS! I think the cornmeal adds a little crunch to this normally soggy side. I love them this way. This is always how I make fried green tomatoes. I use some salt and pepper, too. Try this: dip the tomato in egg then flour then egg then cornmeal. If desired, add the salt and pepper to the flour. YUMMMMMY!

Caramel Apple Pork Chops

Reviewed: Dec. 9, 2005
YUM! I served this with sweet potatoes and topped the chops and potatoes with the apples and sauce, which I tripled as some other reviewers suggested. I used salted butter and didn't have any pecans, yet a very excellent dish. My favorite part is that it uses very common (assuming you have your spice rack well stocked) ingredients. Oh, I also added a little ginger and cloves to the sauce.

Chocolate Mint Cake Squares

Reviewed: Mar. 23, 2006
YUMMY! I didn't have chocolate chips, so we just had the cake (more like the brownie) with the icing. It was very good.

Walter's Chicken and Mac

Reviewed: May 20, 2006
My husband and kids loved this. I cooked chicken breasts on the stove with some diced onion and a little olive oil. I diced the breasts as they cooked. I mixed everything else in an other bowl (including a small can of tomato sauce because so many reviewers said it was too dry) and then I dumped the stuff in the other bowl into the pot I cooked the chicken in and warmed it up pretty good. Then I only had to bake it for 1/2 an hour, which also made it a lot less dry. I ended up with a pretty creamy dinner! Also, I added garlic powder and onion salt. Yumm. Thanks for the recipe.

Chewy Chocolate Chip Oatmeal Cookies

Reviewed: Jul. 23, 2006
Amazing. I did not use nuts, but added one cup of raisins instead. They were a big hit with everyone, from Gran Jean Bean to my two year old!

Libby's® Pumpkin Cranberry Bread

Reviewed: Nov. 18, 2009
Made as is; however, I did not have pumpkin pie spice. Called sis and she said her bottle of pumpkin pie spice contained cinnamon, ginger, and nutmeg. So I used 3 t. cinnamon, 1 1/4 t. ginger, and 3/4 t. of nutmeg. Turned out wonderful!!!

Ten Minute Enchilada Sauce

Reviewed: Oct. 1, 2006
We really liked this. I used it for a chicken enchilada soup recipe that I found on this site. I just used chili powder that I found for a buck on the dollar shelf at the market beacuse I didn't have anyting else. I'm eager to try it with better chili powder. Plus, I did burn the flour (be very carful!) and so it had a smokie taste, but still very good. Even with all my screw ups, it came out nice. Thanks for the recipe.

Spinach Lentil Soup

Reviewed: Oct. 27, 2006
This soup is incredible! I was doubtful because of the few ingredients. My 4 year-old said, "YUM! What's in here?" I only used 8 oz of salsa. I added 8oz of chicken broth. I served it with grated cheese to sprinkle on top and Triscuit crackers. Thanks for the awesome recipe! UPDATE: I made this again (a few times) and used on 10oz package of frozen spinach added at the end. I add it frozen and wait for it to thaw in the soup. Delicious!

Poblano Chile Enchiladas a la Gringa

Reviewed: Nov. 5, 2006
I used only 3 poblano peppers and found the heat to be quite perfect--spicy but not too intense. Also, I had no chicken boulion at all, so I just ommited it and thought the broth had enough flavor from the chicken and garlic and onions. This dish got raved reviews from all who tried it. THANKS FOR SHARING!

Oatmeal Drop Cookies

Reviewed: Dec. 6, 2006
This recipe makes a very tasty cookie and is easy to double (which you will need to do if you want 72 cookies, I doubled it and almost got 6 dozen). I made a double batch and left the walnuts out of half and in that half, I added an extra 3/4 cup of raisins. Very moist and delicious!!

Swiss Chicken Casserole I

Reviewed: Dec. 20, 2006
We all loved this recipe. It's a very easy way to make a good, filling home cooked meal. I served it with canned corn and rolls.

Beef 'n' Black Bean Soup

Reviewed: Mar. 25, 2007
Everyone I serve this to loves it. I omit the carrots and celery and green onions. I use one large onion cut up, and one green pepper. Last time I only used one can of chicken broth and it worked just fine (a little less "soupy", but I don't find it overly soupy to begin with). The spices are perfect, I think. Last night I made French Bread Rolls to Die For also on this site to go with it. What an excellent combo!

German-Style Pickled Eggs

Reviewed: Mar. 30, 2007
My mom makes these every once in a while. We, avid pink pickled egg fans, all loved them. Most liked them better than the usual kind. They were very full of spice, but not too sour. She made the pink ones again on Thanksgiving, but I'm hopeful for the yellow ones at Christmas.

Fluffy Two Step Cheesecake I

Reviewed: Apr. 11, 2007
Add the sugar S-L-O-W-l-Y so that it doesn't lump up the mixture. And, make sure your cream cheese is very soft. I dump a can of pie filling over my pies before I chill them. Delicious with blueberry and blackberry. Good with cherry, too. Fresh fruit on top is an option too, and I'm going to try it when it gets a little cheaper this season!

Chocolate Mint Milkshake

Reviewed: Aug. 19, 2007
I did not expect much from this. I think it's excellent--better than I thought it would be. I've had a hard time making milk shakes at home because they are usually too runny. I followed the measurements exactly and it turned out great. This was ice cream shop taste. I used Bryer's all natural vanilla ice cream and Hershey's syrup and pure peppermint extract. I also made some minus the peppermint extract but plus coconut extract. I much preferred the mint. There is something very yummy and subtle about using vanilla ice cream and adding syrup to make it chocolate. I recommend at least trying it that way even if you try it sometime with chocolate ice cream, too. BEWARE: my 3 and 5 year old took a few sips and then asked for "regular ice cream in a bowl" --with chocolate syrup on top, of course!

Wheat Germ Whole-Wheat Buttermilk Pancakes

Reviewed: Sep. 15, 2007
I've been searching for a healthy pancake recipe that my husband likes. This is it. The entire family liked them. I did not have wheat germ so I subbed oatmeal and it was an excellent substitution. The texture was perfect. I added some sugar (about 2 T.) and vanilla (about 2 t.). The WW pastry flour keeps the pancakes light and fluffy with a closer texture to regular pancakes than the usually healthy pancakes. Thanks for the recipe!!

Thin Mint Crackers

Reviewed: Nov. 10, 2007
These cookies were very popular with the little ones. I liked a thick coating of chocolate, but if you want to get 80 cookies like the recipe says (I got a little over 50 or so) you will need to scrape off the excess chocolate on the side of the bowl. I used peppermint extract and it worked perfectly. You can crush up candy cane (particularly pretty with the red and green ones) and sprinkle it on top for a festive look. Or after they cool they can be drizzled with white chocolate and they sprinkled with red or green baking sugar. YUM!

Boston Brown Bread I

Reviewed: Jan. 7, 2008
This is an interesting "quick" bread. Dense, sweet and excellent toasted this bread is bound to become one of your favorites. If you use full flavor molasses decrees to 3/4 cup and if you love raisins (like my family) this recipe can definitely handle 1 c. or more. To keep it from browning too much, tent it lightly with foil half way through the cooking time. This bread is great warm out of the oven and is a filling breakfast toast. Don't forget to to the baked bread (especially toasted) with butter!

A to Z Everything-but-the-Kitchen-Sink Chocolate Chip Cookies

Reviewed: Mar. 5, 2008
This recipe got many raved reviews. The cereal added a welcomed texture. No need to buy mace just for this recipe (it's not a common staple around here). Adding an extra 1/8 t. of nutmeg worked just fine. Due to family preference, the dough was split in half at the end and 1/2 cup of pecans was added to one half and 1/2 cup of raisins to the other half (no walnuts were added to either half). It may seem odd to have all these ingredients together (especially the spices and the chocolate) but somehow (and quite well) this recipe works. Try it, if you like oatmeal chocolate chip cookies, I don't think you'll be disappointed.
