Home-Fried Potatoes

Reviewed: Nov. 11, 2005
I had a craving for some home fried potatoes and this recipe hit it on the nose for perfection. First I microwaved some regular potatoes-much easier. Then I peeled(I prefer no skins) and when cooled chopped into little cubes. Next I chopped up 1/2 green pepper, 1/2 red pepper, 1/2 onion into little cubes and sauteed in my electric skillet with some olive oil for 3minutes then added a couple of dabs of butter and sauteed for another 2 minutes. In went the potatoes with black pepper, salt, paprika, garlic powder and whatever spice you like and mix it all up and I added a few more dabs of butter(love butter). I let it cook for 10 minutes or more on each side on med/low setting. Easier for me to break it up in sections with spatula in the skillet to flip it over- so each side is nice and brown. A must try-YUMMY!!!!

Irish Soda Bread

Reviewed: Mar. 16, 2007
Hot out the oven with some butter on top and I was in heaven...I am ashamed to admit that I scoffed down four pieces at once. I skipped the caraway seeds for taste preference and you def only need like 1 1/2 to 2 cups of raisins which I did half regular and half golden. This is a moist irish bread not dry. My dough wasn't too sticky but it was wet-thought I did something wrong but it cooked up beautiful in 60minutes. I took another suggestion from a review and suppl the sour cream with a stick of melted butter and found that loaf to be drier.

Cheese Blintzes

Reviewed: Mar. 21, 2007
OK-these were a good afternoon treat. Don't think for me it would pass for a breakfast- more like a dessert. I too needed more of the sugar mixture so I would suggest doubling that from the start. I also skipped the sour cream. Very delicious. If you are not looking for a tart filling- I would suggest adding alittle conf sugar to the cream cheese mixture. I might try that myself next time. My kids loved making them..very easy for them to help and roll out the bread. They even rolled and dipped. Good kid friendly recipe. THANKS!!

Speedy Ice Cream

Reviewed: May 29, 2007
WOW...I never would have thought something so easy to make would be so YUMMY!! Very easy for my 3 and 4 yr olds to make and they LOVED eating the end result. Ofcourse one of them likes chocolate ice cream so I just added a few squirts of choco syrup to her batch. Great little project for them with a delicious result.

Annie's Fruit Salsa and Cinnamon Chips

Reviewed: Jun. 7, 2007
OOOHHHH MMMMYYY!!! What a fabulous little recipe. I used kiwi, apple, strawberry, blueberry, grapes and apricot preserve. I skipped the sugar and it was plenty plenty sweet from the fruits. I made ahead of time by a couple of hours and it did have a nice juice that formed on the bottom of the bowl that I just stirred up and dunked away- with those delicious chips. I only needed 1 cup sugar and 1 tbsp of cinnamon and it coated all my chips plenty. I followed suit and put all chips in a big tupperware with sugar and cinnamon and mixed around. I baked some on a baking sheet and some in mini muffin tins and I like the muffin tins ones the most..you really can get a good scoop of the fruit with the juice in them. Can't wait to make for a party to impress.

Chicken Breasts Stuffed with Crabmeat

Reviewed: Jun. 7, 2007
5 stars for sure. First I marinated my chicken(5 breasts) in buttermilk for a few hours as I do with all my chicken(1cup milk 1 TBS vinegar or lemon juice if no buttermilk) for that extra moistness. The fresh crumbs..I used 5 pieces day old bread, with 6-8 ritz crackers, fresh parsley and basil and blended it all up. Soo yummy. I did add grated lemon rind and paprika to the filling and talk about good..MMMMMM. I did brown the chicken till just brown and then baked 350 for 25-30 minutes. I topped with Blender Hollandaise Sauce from this site. Restaurant quality for sure. The filling alone is to die for! Thanks!!!

Sizzling Chicken Skewers

Reviewed: Jun. 19, 2007
SOOO GOOD!! My guests couldn't stop commenting how good this was. Who would of thought with all the crazy ingredients. I made the marinade the night before and marinated my chicken in it all night(really makes for moist chicken). The only subs were vidalia onion for the green onion, and I had no cayenne pepper so I used paprika with a few red pep flakes. I also used lite soy sauce..The regular soy would make it way too salty. I strung chicken on the skewers with the pepper, pineapple chunks, and vidalia onion and my oh my..they were soo good. Don't pass this up.

Restaurant-Style Coleslaw I

Reviewed: Jun. 19, 2007
This was a great coleslaw recipe. The buttermilk with the white wine vinegar makes a delicious flavor. I adjusted the vinegar to my liking and added more salt and pepper and didn't add in all the sugar. I always wondered how restaurants make their coleslaw and now I know. So creamy and yummy. Will be making this again and again. There are so many good add-ins to try...pineapple chunks, dijon mustard, paprika etc...

Stephen's Chocolate Chip Cookies

Reviewed: Jun. 26, 2007
Def a great cookie. All the flavors were wonderful. I did leave out the nuts in half the batch for taste preference for the happy recipients. The only thing I did change was that it was so hot and humid when I made these that I added a cup of quick oats that I blended into powder and added in with the flour. My choc chips tend to turn into pancakes when it is so hot and this trick makes for perfect cookies. Do try!

George's Chocolate Chip Cookies

Reviewed: Jun. 26, 2007
5 stars for sure. I love making cookies and this reipe is a keeper. I did half the recipe and chopped up milk chocolate kisses, ghiradella semi sweet chocolate and some nice dark chocolate. It was a nice treat to go all out and use the good chocolates for these cookies. I'm sure using average chocolate would still make a great cookie. I did cream the butter and sugars then added the egg and vanilla and gradually added in the flour mixture with blended oatmeal. I dropped by heaping tbsp onto sheets(didn't flatten with a fork) and needed to bake for 9 minutes and they were perfect. 6-8 minutes and they were too raw and not ready to come out yet. Thanks!

Stuffed Strawberries

Reviewed: Jul. 3, 2007
I am giving this 5 stars but I think that was due to the fact that I dipped the stuffed strawberries in chocolate(just melted choc semi sweet morsels with a dab of veg oil). Ohh my how good they were and how people raved about them. The filling itself I used only 1 tbsp grand marnier liqueur and found it waaaay to overpowering so I added in a little extra sugar, and a few tbsp of fluff and grated in some nice semi sweet chocolate. That was good but next I think I'll skip the liqueur and add in some vanilla bean or almond extract. I would only give 4 stars as is but DIPPED IN CHOCOLATE..they are fabulous. I bet adding mini choc chips to the stuffing would be great too! This def is a great recipe that you can experiment with.***update..I now have made with the vanilla bean and/or extract on they are TO DIE FOR!!

BBQ Pork for Sandwiches

Reviewed: Jul. 16, 2007
More than 5 stars! Absolutely fabulous. I had a big party so I got two huge pork shoulders from Costco for cheap and used two crock pots and put one in each. 10:00 the night before I put in crockpot on low with the broth and the next morn at 8am the meat was shredding right off. I threw out the fatty parts(don't like) and emptied out the broth and returned the shredded meat adding a bottle of my favorite BBQ sauce to each crock pot. I covered and let sit until an hour before the party and put back on low to warm. I added in more sauce to my liking. YUMMY YUMMY!! Great share.

Tomato and Mozzarella Bites

Reviewed: Jul. 19, 2007
Small Mozz balls are my favorite and this is a great way to serve as a side dish or appetizer. I buy the big container of them at costco to save alittle on money. I string on skewers for a steadier hold and just snip the skewer in half once loaded. One ball on a toothpick isn't enough for me :-) I then drizzle the balsamic dressing over them-this way dipping isn't necessary(gets complicated and messy with guests). You could even add in a sliced piece of provolone. YUMMY! GREAT GREAT RECIPE!

Greek Orzo Salad

Reviewed: Jul. 19, 2007
Very delicious side for a BBQ I just had. I used the tri-color orzo which gave such a wonderful added flavor and I left out the olives for taste preference. I used red, orange, and green peppers to add more color. I made the night before the party and just before serving I skipped adding in the artichoke marinade and added instead a greek vinagrette dressing with a splash of balsamic. Very good and the little that was left over still tasted good a few days later. Will make again.

Mexican Bean Salad

Reviewed: Jul. 19, 2007
Very yummy side dish for a BBQ I just had. I made the night before. I used a smaller can of black beans and added also a small can of chick peas to compensate. Instead of frozen corn I used a can of whole kernel corn-the rest I kept the same and it was delicious. My brother took a container home before I could serve it. He loved it.

Balsamic Chicken and Fresh Mozzarella

Reviewed: Jul. 25, 2007
I've been making chicken with this marinade for years and it is absolutely delicious 5++ stars. I use good seasons dressing mix and use balsamic for the vinegar. In the summer I BBQ the chicken on low for 8 minutes per side and add the slice of tomatoe(or even roasted red peppers--which I like more) and top with the mozz cheese and let that sit for 1 more minute on the grill til it just melts alittle...and boy does my family and guests love me. Don't pass this up. Any cooking method this turns out delicious.

Amish White Bread

Reviewed: Jul. 25, 2007
I must say I am tempted to give this bread 4 stars because of the sweetness. I am the queen of a sweettooth and am suprised more reviews havn't complained of it being just a bit too sweet. But ofcourse hot out of the oven I polished off 3 rolls with butter spread all over it. They are very delicious and I think cinnamon rolls will be to die for with the sweetness this dough offers. I made one loaf and rolled the other half into balls and put in muffin tins and made rolls. I did let the dough rise again for another hour after I put it in the pans. For those unsure of how long the yeast needs to proof...ten minutes is how long it takes. Will make again and again and just cut the sugar alittle.

Chocolate Chip Butter Cookies

Reviewed: Jul. 30, 2007
First try out of the oven and I was a little skeptical..wasn't what I was expecting. More shortbready..but I decided to dip one end of the cooled cookies in melted milk chocolate and drizzled white chocolate over that and they became a masterpiece. DELICIOUS. They tasted much better when cooled and the flavors had time to rest a bit. Next time I think I will add in some finely chopped walnuts and that will complete this perfect recipe! If you are expecting this to be like a regular chocolate chip...it wont be. Thanks for the share.

Clark's Quiche

Reviewed: Aug. 9, 2007
My husband jokes around saying real men don't eat quiche..well now that he tried this..he thinks the name should be changed because he thought it was YUMMY and wants to remain a real man!!! Only changes were I used 2 deep dish frozen pie crusts that I baked 7 minutes prior to cooking. I left out the mushroom and added instead cut up zucchini and broccoli from my garden. I used fresh parsley as well and ofcourse..you can't leave out the garlic. My pie crusts were stuffed..just be careful to pour the egg mixture on the cheese SLOWLY..or it will just spill right off the sides. I didn't use as much cheese and don't think you really need it all. If you were to use it all I would make three pies instead. GREAT SHARE!

Angel Food Cake III

Reviewed: Sep. 2, 2007
This was so yummy! I made it for a lemon berry trifle I was making and it was fabulous. I too used regular flour minus a Tbsp. instead of cake flour and added in a squirt of almond extract. I used my bundt pan (essentially the same thing as a tube pan) and the cooking time was more like 30 minutes. I think if you let it go the 45 minutes..it would be cooked to a crisp! Did take a little patience with prying away with a butter knife to seperate it off the pan. But well worth the effort. THANKS!
