Wedding Cake Icing

Reviewed: Sep. 22, 2007
I had been looking for the perfect "wedding cake" icing, and this is it! I've made 3 practice cakes using this icing and they've gone over well! I used water from the water cooler instead of tap water, and the first mixing only took 5 minutes. The second time I made this icing, I added 2 Tablespoons cocoa powder to half the batch for a chocolate cake, and it was great. My family has requested to not have a "Bought" cake anymore! Thank YOU for this recipe!

Reviewed: Nov. 21, 2007
I made this recipe last weekend for my chocoholic daughter's baby shower. It was a hit! I am making it again today for Thanksgiving tomorrow.

Macadamia Nut Crusted Mahi Mahi

Reviewed: Dec. 15, 2007
Thank you for a mahi mahi recipe that even my "I hate fish" 7 year old enjoyed. I couldn't find shallots or fresh pineapple at the grocer, so I replaced them with onion and canned pineapple.

Beef Stroganoff III

Reviewed: Jan. 6, 2008
The best ever stroganoff recipe. Thank you. I used flat iron steak instead of the roast. There were no left overs!

Fluffy Peanut Butter Frosting

Reviewed: Jan. 6, 2008
Very good frosting. I used it in between layers of devil's food cake, froze it, and then frosted top and sides with chocolate buttercream.

Cabbage Rolls I

Reviewed: Jan. 6, 2008
Excellent recipe. I almost didn't use the cinnamon, but am glad I did. There were only smallish heads of cabbage at the grocer, so I ended up using 3 heads, and made 48 rolls. I sent some home with my in-laws, and froze some. They were even good re-heated.

Corn Dog Muffins

Reviewed: Mar. 2, 2008
In taking the advice of other reviewers, I cut the hot dogs in bite sized pieces. I halved the recipe, only used 2 hot dogs, and used 1 cup of Colby jack cheese instead of cheddar. It still made 12 muffins. My husband and 7 year old do not like cornbread muffins. To help disguise the cornbread, I plated 2 of them, and poured hot dog chili over them. (1 can Vietti hot dog chili, 2 T ketchup, and 1 t mustard, cook on med heat until hot) My husband said "You know I don't like cornbread", but he ate both of his and said they were different, but really good. My 7 year old asked if we could have them for dinner one night this week. I tasted them with and without the chili, and liked them.

Potato Salmon Patties

Reviewed: Mar. 2, 2008
These were really good. I was out of dill weed, celery salt, seasoned bread crumbs, and onions. I substituted 1 T Mrs. Dash, 1 T onion powder, 1 T lemon pepper, 1 T Old Bay seasoning, 3 T lemon juice, and 3 T Worcestershire sauce. The texture was great, I fried them in oil, but I think they would have been just as good baked. I served them with mustard and horseradish.

Jezebel Sauce

Reviewed: Mar. 4, 2008
We use this as a dipping sauce for Mahi Mahi, chicken strips, and mozzarella sticks. It is also good as a glaze on ham or pork loin. I've never added the black pepper though, the taste without it is too good to mess with!

Baked Potato Soup

Reviewed: Mar. 8, 2008
Very good on a very cold snowy day! I didn't have half and half, so used evaporated milk instead. I mixed in 1 cup of sour cream right before serving. The whole family enjoyed it.

Torsk

Reviewed: Mar. 8, 2008
I really wanted this to taste like lobster, like most of the comments said, but it did not. It was, however, good buttered cod. The sugar water poach did give the fish a "different" taste than what I am used to, but it was pleasant, not too sweet, but not like lobster. If you like fish, give this recipe a try, but if you are looking for a lobster taste, stick with the real thing. :)

Chicken Enchilada Casserole I

Reviewed: Mar. 8, 2008
The whole family enjoyed this one. Rather than use cooked and diced chicken, I cooked raw chicken breasts in the broth, and shredded it. I used shredded cheddar jack instead of processed cheese. We had the left overs the next day for lunch, it was good re-heated.

Zeke's Tortilla Soup

Reviewed: Mar. 8, 2008
I had a busy day, so I cooked the chicken in the crock pot with chicken broth. When I got home, I shredded the chicken, and went ahead and finished the soup in the crockpot. This soup is sooooo good, it was worth the extra calories to fry the tortilla strips! I served it with shredded cheddar and a dollop of sour cream.

Chewy Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Cookies

Reviewed: Mar. 18, 2008
Very good. We froze some of the cookie dough to use later. The cookies from the frozen dough were just as good!

Southern Fried Cabbage

Reviewed: Mar. 18, 2008
This was so good, even the kids enjoyed it. I did make a couple changes for times sake. I used a bag of pre-shredded cole slaw instead of shredding the cabbage. I also used dehydrated chopped onions, 1 T, instead of the onion.

Cheeseburger and Fries Casserole

Reviewed: Mar. 23, 2008
Thumbs up! The kids loved it! I cooked the fries first like other comments, until they were crispy. I took it a step further and put a layer of fries on the bottom, and on the top. It's a keeper. Thanks!
