Hugs and Kisses Crescents

Reviewed: Apr. 10, 2003
HUGE HIT with kids, of course!! The ONLY thing I've done different since I've first starting making this was I decreased the amount of Hershey Kisses to just 2 per crescent. (Hey my kids are hyper enough, lol:).

Gyoza

Reviewed: Mar. 15, 2004
About prep time, the first time you make is always the most tedious. As you get used to making, you will shorten your prep time! These also freeze very well, and no defrost time needed. One last thing...I prefer Napa Cabbage for gyoza! Good luck to everyone!! (Great recipe Meredith!)

Home-Fried Potatoes

Reviewed: May 7, 2004
AWESOME!! The only thing I did different was I didn't add the bell pepper as SOMEONE in my family doesn't care for them:). I can tell you that if they are this good without the peppers, they have to be spectacular with them!!

Texas Pork Ribs

Reviewed: May 7, 2004
I still gave this recipe 5 stars, but I felt it had just a bit too much salt in the rub. But man oh man you couldn't get better ribs anywhere. And know this is coming from a girl who's dad used to OWN a rib joint!! I plan on using my own bbq sauce next time as my kids are used to it but I WILL put some of the pan drippings in it before I slather it on!! This one's a keeper! I'm giving this recipe to my dad:).

Granny's Banana Bread

Reviewed: Oct. 9, 2004
This recipe was so good! I did not use optional raisins, but I did use pine nuts in lieu of optional walnuts (I had a surplus). It turned out fantastic! I did brown the pine nuts a tad prior to adding. I used a spring form cake pan and only had to bake this for about 35 minutes (maybe a little less). I did the toothpick test and it was wonderful! So moist and yummy! Thanks for this recipe, I never knew banana bread would be so easy! This will be a staple in our house.

Scarlett's Best Ever Sugar Cookies

Reviewed: Nov. 7, 2004
WOW! This was a cookie recipe I took on as a first for my little girl (3) to 'help'. Since I only had one egg after a week with 2 extra teens in the house, I had to halve this recipe. Following to the tee, the recipe cranked out EXACTLY 50 cookies, as promised! I did the rolling, (as I am seriously anal about detail)I had my 14 y/o son help his sis with the 'sugaring'. I followed Scarlett's advice and used one of my mother's tiara glasses that has a beautiful design on the bottom. I threw them in the oven for exactly 10 minutes and viola! Perfection. They look like little sand dollars! One word of advice...Take them off of the cookie sheets IMMEDIATELY to reduce chance of cookies crumbling. When they were sufficiently cooled, I called the pack in for a taste test. Complete silence and looks of satisfaction on all of their faces. Scarlett, you are the bomb. Thanks for a family first. My only regret, that I will have to let my kids take one of my mothers special glasses to make these themselves when they leave the nest:).

Bella's Rosemary Red Potatoes

Reviewed: Nov. 17, 2004
Great recipe! I didn't vary the ingredients (with exception to olive oil instead of vegetable oil), the time said 30 minutes or more, so I kept them in for about 45 minutes, stirring every 10-15 minutes. Just a note, I HAVE done a recipe very similar to this one that had you boil, then pan fry the potatoes. There is a difference in the texture of final product, but both are equally good. This one is a keeper:).

Cucumber Sandwich

Reviewed: Dec. 10, 2004
My best friend and I love to try different recipes and love to challenge each other with coming up with a unique one. Well, this one was IT for me! I guess when a 12 y/o boy begs for half is a good indication! I will tell you that it is much better with the cucumber in thick slices as opposed to thinly sliced (I tried it both ways). Thanks for this KEEPER!

Fry Sauce

Reviewed: Dec. 10, 2004
This recipe confirms that this website is definately a great way to find out how to make even the most basic recipes! Being from the South, we are pretty much ketchup on fries only people. I was flying through Chicago O'Hare Airport on my way to Cali and stopped in the McDonalds in the terminal. I heard so many people ask for fries 'w/sauce'. My turn came, and I asked for the same. I got that ketchup/mayo concoction and had NO idea what it was. THANK YOU FOR LETTING ME KNOW IT WAS THAT SIMPLE!! It is really good! This is a lesson for all, something you may take for granted may be a great mystery to others, so take the time to share what you love! Thanks again:).

French Toast I

Reviewed: Mar. 16, 2005
Excellent! I used Texas Toast style bread and was able to whip this up for my 2 teenaged sons in minutes. This is a wonderful 'basic' recipe and should be a staple in everyone's recipe box:).

Kansas City Steak Soup

Reviewed: Mar. 19, 2005
Excellent! I cut up the carrots and onions and roast them in olive oil til tender in the oven prior to adding. I also flour my meat prior to browning. Once I add the meat to the soup, I use the tomatoes to deglaze the pan I sauteed the meat in. I also add fordhook lima beans for taste as opposed to frozen veggies. This soup is SO GOOD this way. Yes, it's a little labor intensive, but it's so worth the final product. Also....please note that I make sure my "roux" is browned well before adding the beef stock. YUM!!

Buffalo Chicken Dip

Reviewed: Feb. 6, 2006
SO very good!! We are a wing loving family and this was superb! I did use some left over baked chicken and decided to use half ranch and half blue cheese dressing. I also completely omitted the cheddar, totally not needed (in my opinion). To die for:). I served with celery and carrot sticks as well as Tostito dip chips. Thanks for a great recipe!!! This will be one of two super bowl dip traditions. (Reuben Dip pn this site is the other.)

Reuben Dip

Reviewed: Feb. 6, 2006
Now a Super Bowl Sunday standard in our home!! This was EXCELLENT!! I did mix all ingredients instead of layer and did cook in oven as directed but kept it warm (stirring every now and then) in a electric fondue pot on warm. WAS SOOO GOOD! I served this with rye cocktail bread that I cut in half to make dipping easier and also Rye Triscuits. Thank you SO MUCH!!

Quick Chicken And Wine

Reviewed: Jun. 29, 2007
The taste of this dish was superb! I followed this recipe closely, my only addition was some minced garlic right before adding the wine. I can't tell you how awesome this was! I served with white rice. My teen boy loved this as well. This recipe has made it in my personal book. Thanks.
