Turkey Brine

Reviewed: Apr. 7, 2014
I have brined many turkeys, but last Thanksgiving's turkey was the best I've had in my life. I couldn't tell much difference in the other turkeys i brined. All were grilled. So, this turkey was brined, then grilled to perfection. I don't even like turkey that much, but this will make me a changed person. Sorry I don't have a photo.

Seven Layer Dinner

Reviewed: Aug. 15, 2012
I will rate this later. It is still in the oven. I followed the directions except I used 1 15 oz. can of peas. For meat I used smoked sausage, all ready prepared little sausage pellets, and left over chicken which I boiled and cut up. I put butter on a couple of layers. All I had for tomatoe soup was the kind you don't add water to...Campbell's Creamy Basil. I added about a cup and a half of cheddar cheese and then added the soup. Smells good. We will soon see.

Sage Pork Chops

Reviewed: Nov. 15, 2011
Trying to avoid shopping for dinner, found 2 thick pork chops in the freezer. Went straight to Allrecipes to see what to do with them. This was the easiest recipe, sounded good, and I had time to cook them the alloted time. My husband loved them! He kept saying how tender they were. I made gravy with cornstarch as suggested by other reviewers. Outstanding. Wonderful flavor. We had mashed potatoes and green beans flavored with butter, garlic, onion powder and a little oregano.

Rolled Dumplings

Reviewed: Nov. 15, 2011
5 stars because the ingredients were perfect. However someone (probably my better half) put sugar in my salt bowl. (I use bowls trying to be like the cooks on TV(:). I put a tsp. of sugar instead of a tsp. of salt. I mentioned to my guests that I thought the dumplings needed a little more salt. I had to make more dumplings right away cause I had a lot of broth left over, or gravy. Anyway, I discovered the sugar in my salt bowl. By this time I had already added the sugar to the second batch. I just added a tsp. of salt to the mixture and continued on. These dumplings were outstanding. I mixed the dough in my food processor. I added the shortening to the dry ingredients and let the food processor do the cutting. Then I slowly added the milk until it formed a ball. Quick and easy. I thought this might make the dough tough but it didn't. I didn't even taste my tsp of sugar. Probably because of the salt, the second dumplings puffed up more than the first. They were tender and delicious.

Gary's Stuffed Mushrooms

Reviewed: Oct. 30, 2011
Made these Friday for my husband. Like to make a surprise for him on Fridays when he gets home from work. He ate two before he took his coat off. 1 reviewer was right when she said there was way too much filling. I bought two more packs of mushrooms to use my remaining filling. Did not need so much butter either. I put my onion and garlic in the food processor. I forgot the garlic was supposed to go in the butter. So I had garlic in the butter and in the fillng. I used canned crabmeat. Except for the extra mushrooms, I had everything I needed already in the house to make this wonderful recipe. Will make again. Thanks Gary

Scalloped Potatoes and Onions

Reviewed: Oct. 13, 2011
Made this for a catering job without trying it first. It did get very watery. I don't know why. I like the addition of the onions. So, next time I will make mine the old fashioned way with the addition of onions and maybe the manonnaise too. However, I think I will stick with the evaporated milk instead ofr the chicken broth. Might put in a little chicken seasoning. Thanks for these ideas. Katherine

Flaky Food Processor Pie Crust

Reviewed: Oct. 13, 2011
Like some things are priceless, this pie dough recipe is starless. There aren't enough stars to give it. It is the best dough I've ever made! It is easy to work with and does not need to be chilled. I like a lttle more salt in my dough, and I like the combination of butter and shortening. This is better than the Barefoot Contessa's, which is a little too short for me. I love the speed of using the food processor. I'm afraid to double the recipe, but I will try that soon. Thank you so much Charlotte. This will be my pie dough recipe from now on. Katherine

Easy Broccoli Quiche

Reviewed: Oct. 13, 2011
Well, it is what it is. I thought it was a little bland. Next time I will use sausage, bacon, a little thyme and rosemary and marjoram with a touch of nutmeg. I DID add onion powder, but it didn't help. I used a crust from this site that is the best crust I've ever made in my life. I also added green bell peppers. I will make this again because it is easy and honestly, not bad at all. Also, you can put other stuff in to please your own taste. Katherine

Egg Noodles

Reviewed: May 16, 2011
Sorry I didn't get a pictue. It was gone too fast! I didn't change the recipe at all, only the preparatiion. I threw everythng into the food processor like the Barefoot Contessa does her pie dough. I pulsed it about 5 times and than ran it until it became solid, which was about 45 seconds. I floured my hands real good to remove the dough from the food processor. I kneaded it about 5 times and let rest for 10 minutes. I roll all pasta and pastry using a pastry cloth and a cover on my rolling pin. Only a little flour is needed. I rolled it out very thin and used my 5 wheel pasta cutter to make the noodles. This was unbelieveably fast. The noodles were very tender. I used them for chicken and noodles. Thank you Linda. I would give this 10 stars if I could.

Hangtown Fry with Parmesan and Fresh Herbs

Reviewed: May 14, 2011
Tried this this morning. Maybe I shouldn't give it only 4 stars since I didn't have all the ingredients on hand and had to make do with dried seasonings and evaporated milk. Also, what I didn't like about it may have been my fault. I like my eggs a little soft and didn't know how to do that cooking them 2 different ways. My husband said it was OK and had a LOT of suggestions on how to fix it. I don't think I'll be making it again.

Peach Cobbler II

Reviewed: Dec. 22, 2010
Oh WOW!! This is it. The cobbler I have been looking for. I made it twice for Thanksgiving because I forgot to add the water to the first one, which was cherry. It turned out to be just like peach cobbler IV found on this site. It looked beautiful and I couldn't wait to try it until I remembered I forgot to add the water. Now adding all of this water just didn't seem right. But, I tried it anyway, this time using peaches. This was soooo good. Made a sauce. Next time I will substitute butter for the shortening add a little more sugar. I always flavor my pie filling with cinnamon, nutmeg, and mace. Delicious. P.S. After reading some of thiese reviews, perhaps I forgot the sugar, that's why it wasn't sweet enough for me. I used canned peach pie filling, which is already sweetened. However, I always add sugar to canned pie filling. For some reason I forgot this time. It was Thanksgiving eve. Very busy. Can't wait to try again. Follow-up: Made this last night for my husband's job. I used 3 cans of peaches. I doubled the dough recipe. After I made my main cobbler, which was about 1 and 1/2 times larger than the original recipe, I had enough leftover to make a small cobbler for us. I don't like a lot of cakie dough so I used less dough and a lot of filling. I used butter in the dough before. Not necessary. Did not change the tast a lot. I will add cinnamon and nutmeg to the dough next time, see how that goes. Wonderful recipe.

Old Fashioned Onion Rings

Reviewed: Dec. 17, 2010
After looking for a recipe for onion rings on Allrecipes, I realized I had tried this before. It's great. I would give it 6 stars if I could. I followed the recipe 'til I got to the bread crumbs. I substituted potato flakes. Sooo crispy. And they stay crispy. I did the bread crumbs also. I liked both, preferred the potato flakes. Wonderful easy recipe. Thank you Jean Marie.

Broccoli Rice Casserole

Reviewed: Dec. 2, 2010
Good recipe. There were no leftovers on Thanksgiving. Because I don't like cream of mushroom soup, I substituted cream of celery soup. Also, I never use processed cheese in a recipe. Used shredded sharp cheddar cheese. Will top with Ritz crackers next time.

Salmon Croquettes

Reviewed: Nov. 30, 2010
My mother's salmon croquettes (this is what she called them, never salmon patties or salmon cakes) were always plain and simple, but good. Onion, egg, flour, salt and pepper is all she added. She rolled them in flour. I wondered if there might be something a little different so I went to my favorite site. I found this wonderful recipe at allrecipes. I added a little more onions and celery than it called for. That's probably why they didn't hold together very well. I like the veggies, though, so next time I will add a little flour. I also will add a little salt and pepper. I was worried that the wheat germ would not be a good coating. I was wrong. I will try it in other recipes like fish and checken. Great recipe.

Aw-some Coleslaw

Reviewed: Nov. 2, 2010
As I read the ingredients, I see I forgot the milk, vinegar and lemon juice. I usually just use Marzetti slaw dressin. But I have gotten so I don't like it. Anyway, I used mayonaise, sugar, cabbage (of course), carrots, and onions. Salt and pepper to taste, I added celery seed, garlic and onion powder and we ate it for dinner as soon as I made it. I imagine it will be better tomorrw. I didn't leave the mentioned ingredients out purposly. I was just in a hurry and forgot. The slaw was very, very good. Mrs. Dodley

Chicken Noodle Casserole I

Reviewed: Jun. 2, 2010
I made this last night for dinner. I followed the advise of some reviewers and added things. When I added peas and carrots, celery, and onions, I realized this is just like my tuna noodle casserole, except you use chicken instead of tuna. I never use cream of mushroom soup because I don't like it. I can almost always sub cream of chicken or cream of celery to a recipe that calls for cream of mushroom soup. I added garlic and onion powder, about 1/2 teaspoon of rosemary, and a splash of Worcestshire sauce. If it is too dry, I add more sour cream or another can of soup. Katherine

Sparkling Punch

Reviewed: May 20, 2010
I could not find sparkling cidar, so I used regular cidar. I did not get a chance to taste it. It went too fast. Must have been good. Katherine

Strawberry Shortcake

Reviewed: Apr. 26, 2010
I made this shortcake last night following all of "Luv to cook's" advice. This is another winner. I'm only giving it 4 stars because the reviewers suggestions is what made the shortcake. I made six bisquits. I just spooned it out onto a cookie sheet which I had sprayed with Pam. Didn't need to dust with flour. Wonderful recipe with the tweaks. Will make again and again.
