Cajun Red Snapper

Reviewed: Jul. 20, 2007
This was really great....a bit spicy but we love spicy. I rubbed the seasoning on the fish and let it marinade in the refrigerator for an hour then I baked it in a 350 degree oven for 20 minutes (lightly grease baking pan). Served over broccoli/cheese rice with a side of spinach. YUMMY!

Oven Scrambled Eggs

Reviewed: Oct. 16, 2007
Wow! I will never go back to making scrambled the old fashioned way. This is a good basic recipe that comes out perfect everytime. I usually add the following: 1/4-tsp black pepper, 1/2-tsp crushed red pepper, 1-tsp dried parsley and 8oz package of Kraft Crumbles Mexican Blend Cheese. I like the crumbles instead of shredded because you get a more cheesy bite. I also sometimes add cubed ham or pork sausage. I highly recommend it.

Downeast Maine Pumpkin Bread

Reviewed: Aug. 28, 2007
I've made this twice - the first one I followed the recipe exactly, except I also added a teaspoon of vanilla. The second time I made this I cheated a bit...I used a box of yellow cake mix + 1 cup bisquick and I used a 29 ounce can of pumpkin. Both were equally as delicious. However my family prefered the one with more pumpkin because it was very, very moist and they said it tasted like pudding. In fact my husband and kids put it in the ice cream maker and made pumpkin ice cream. Can you say yummy. This is definitely a keeper. Thank you for the recipe.

Good Old Fashioned Pancakes

Reviewed: Aug. 31, 2007
Wow, these were absolutely fantastic. I read many reviews before I made these so I made some changes to the recipe based on all the reviews......I doubled the recipe and made the following changes. I used 4-teaspoons baking powder, 1-teaspoon cinnamon, 1/2-teaspoon nutmeg, 1-tablespoon vanilla, 1/2-teaspoon salt, 3-cups milk, 3 eggs lightly beaten and 1-stick butter......I melted the butter then added the milk to the butter and heated it (just heat, do not boil). So I had 3 bowls - 1 with the dry ingredients all sifted together, 1 with the warm liquids and 1 with the eggs lightly beaten. I then added the liquids to the dry ingredients and mixed a bit then added the eggs to the mixture. Mixed with a wire wisk until it was well blended together. I let it sit on the counter for 10-minutes before cooking. Served with bacon and eggs. This was made for 4-people and none was left. The kids told me these are best pancakes they have ever had and to never use bisquick again. Thank you so much for the fine recipe. Its a keeper.

Strawberries with Balsamic Vinegar

Reviewed: Jul. 6, 2007
Absolutely delicious...I really love strawberries and usually just dip them in sugar to eat them. My husband recently went to costco and came back with 5 pounds of strawberries and I didn't know what to do with them so I went in search of a recipe. When I found this recipe, I was a bit skeptical...I mean really vinegar marinated strawberries...Well, I made them and they were delicious. It is now my husbands favorite strawberry recipe; he has requested and I have made it several times since the first batch. With all this strawberry it did take us several days to eat it, but I found that the longer it sat in the marinade the better it tasted. So now I marinade it for 2-3 days. Serve with ice cream, eat alone or just top your favorite anything really. YUMMY!!!

Bread Machine Rolls

Reviewed: Jul. 20, 2007
These are easy to make and taste wonderful...Thanks for the recipe. I did add 1-tsp Italian Seasoning and I also eliminated the salt and added 1-tbsp grated Parmesan Cheese. I also allowed them to rise twice as long as noted in the recipe. The result was lighter, softer rolls.

Creme Brulee French Toast

Reviewed: Aug. 20, 2007
Made this yesterday for my husbands birthday brunch...It turned out fantastic and everyone loved it. Made a few minor changes and used just what I had on hand...I didnt have corn syrup so I used maple syrup instead. Didnt have french bread so I used Pepperidge Farm Cinnamon and Raisin bread (cubed). I didnt have GrandMarnier so I used regular Brandy. I also added an 8-oz pkg of cream cheese to the milk mixture. It turned out really well. Hubby and the kids really enjoyed it. I already have requests to make it again.

Absolute Mexican Cornbread

Reviewed: Sep. 30, 2007
This cornbread is really good. Its moist and full of flavor. I doubled the recipe except the following ingredients: I used only 1-cup butter; 1 cup brown sugar; 6 eggs; 6 teaspoons baking powder; 1/4 teaspoon salt. I also did not use the Chile peppers because my SIL cannot eat spicy foods and did not want to risk it. After mixing the batter, I let it stand for 20 minutes so it would crown before pouring into the pan. This was served to my inlaws and they just raved about it...The whole thing was eaten in under 30 minutes. Thanks for the recipe...again, very good.

Chantal's New York Cheesecake

Reviewed: Oct. 16, 2007
OK...WOW!!!! This is one delicious cheesecake. One minor change; I substituted 1-can sweetened condensed milk for the sugar...It makes for a more creamy texture. I also baked it in a moist oven (place a large pan of hot water on the rack directly below the cheesecake about 20 minutes prior to putting the cheesecake in the oven -- this warms up and creates moisture in the oven). I baked it for 1-hour without opening the oven then when I turned the oven off I left the cheesecake in the oven for 5-hours then refrigerated it. It came out perfectly and was sooo yummy. BTW, do not overbeat the mix otherwise the cheesecake will crack.

Light Oat Bread

Reviewed: Oct. 16, 2007
I have finally found my family's favorite bread...Its one we can all agree on. The first time I made this we sat at the table and ate it all hot from the breadmachine. I have since made it several times. I do however use butter instead of margarine; I also added about 3-tbsp honey to the recipe...Very delicious.

Golden Rum Cake

Reviewed: Apr. 12, 2009
This cake is really good. I made it when my sisters their husbands and children/grandchildren visited and everyone asked for the recipe. For the most part I followed the recipe exactly as is except for a few minor changes.... 1. I only had Captain Morgan Tatoo (dark rum) on hand, so thats what I used. It is incredibly flavorful. 2. Eliminated the nuts......I don't like nuts but no one missed the nuts. 3. I replaced the run called for in the glaze with Orange Juice since I am allergic to alcohol (unless its cooked off). Again, a fantastic cake. It is definitely a keeper in my house. Will be making it again.

Beer Bread I

Reviewed: Apr. 12, 2009
I have never had beer bread before, so when saw this recipe it sounded delicious and easy enough. I was right, it is super fast and couldn't be easier to make. I don't usually have self rising flour on hand so I made my own by combining 1 cup flour and 1 tbsp baking powder. The only beer I had on hand at the time was a case of Samuel Adams after going thru them my son and I decided on the Sam Adams Chocolate Beer -- definitely the perfect choice. Oh yes, I increased the sugar to 1/3 cup as noted by a few other reviewers. The next time I made it I followed some other suggestions and added a cup of Mexican Blend and Cheddar Jack Cheeses. Thats also good. This recipe is definitely a keeper. My husband and son ask for it all the time.

Chickpea Curry

Reviewed: Oct. 16, 2007
This is quite good. I followed the recipe exactly with a few minor changes...I used Extra Virgin Olive Oil instead of Vegetable Oil; 1-Tsp Ground Ginger instead of Ginger Root; 1/2-Tsp Ground Cloves instead of Whole Cloves and 1-Tsp Ground Cinnamon instead of Cinnamon Sticks. Let it simmer for about 45 minutes. Served it over White Rice. This dish is definitely a keeper.

Baked Teriyaki Chicken

Reviewed: Oct. 16, 2007
Followed the ingredients exactly....However instead of brushing the sauce on I dipped the chicken in the sauce to coat then place it on a foil lined baking pan and poured the remaining sauce over it and marinated it for about 6 hours then baked covered in a 400 degree oven for 30 mins then uncovered for another 30 minutes. It was very good. Although hubby said it tasted like BBQ Chicken as opposed to Teriyaki.

Apple Dumplings I

Reviewed: Oct. 16, 2007
I dont eat apples, but my husband and son really loves anything with apples. So I made this for them. Well, they truly loved it...they raved about it and have since asked me to make it several times. I did follow the suggestions of others and diced the apples then dipped them in a sugar, cinnamon mixture then wrapped them in dough the with a pat of butter. I also used 1/2 white and 1/2 brown sugar and I heat the sauce over medium heat until bubbly (but do not boil)..Hubby said its the best apple dumpling he has ever had. Thank you for the recipe and suggestions.
