Best Ever Sausage with Peppers, Onions, and Beer!

Reviewed: Feb. 5, 2011
Being Italian, would never use cilantro in this recipe, I use fresh or dried basil and I use white wine. I brown cut up sausage, deglaze pan with wine, stir in freshly cut up peppers & onions (not browned), cook in tightly covered pan in 350 oven till peppers are cooked, the flavors all blend. This will keep the shape of the peppers & onions, they won't be overcooked and mushy. I start with a cup of wine, after 30 min. In oven, uncover and taste, more wine or chicken broth can be added if needed. I also omit the tomato, we like the white sauce. I serve this with crusty Italian bread or rolls for sandwich's along with a salad I dress with white wine vinegar & olive oil. Whatever way you decide to prepare, I'm sure you, family & friends will enjoy.

Peachy Rice Dessert

Reviewed: Jan. 22, 2011
wow, very good. I didn't have any left over rice so I cooked up the bag of rice, I drained the peaches in the pot I drained the peach juice. After rice was cooked, I put bag and all into peach ju8ce to make it cool faster to start the dessert. I also baked in 425 degree over about 10 instead of broil, I was worried about broiling these canned peaches.

Make-Ahead Turkey Gravy

Reviewed: Nov. 20, 2010
This is my 3rd year making this recipe and its great. I don't stress making the gravy after the turkey is taken out of the oven, the problem is, there is never enough turkey gravy for left overs. We all love hot turkey sandwiches the next day, so this solves that problem. I prepare this "ahead gravy" 2 days before and on turkey day I boil the giblets while the turkey is in the oven. When the turkey is cooked and resting I use the roasting pan with the drippings and make a roux, etc, when the gravy is done, I then add half of the make ahead gravy to the pan and heat it up. We now have plenty of turkey gravy for Thanksgiving. The other half of the Make Ahead gravy I freeze for the Christmas turkey dinner, so I get 2 for the work of 1, and never again worry about having enough gravy left over for the day after hot turkey sandwich smothered in gravy. I don't know if anyone feels the way I do but after cooking all this food for a holiday dinner, I don't feel like eating it, so the day after the big dinner everything sounds and tastes great to me, since I am not touching, slicing, chopping, stirring, mixing or smelling the food all day long, not to mention being tired and stressed getting all the food cooked and served hot at the same time for everyone to sit and eat. Nope, the day after is MY DAY and I'm loving that hot turkey sandwich.

To Die For Blueberry Muffins

Reviewed: Dec. 4, 2009
These were great and I used brown sugar for the topping. I made a mistake, I put the egg in the measure cup, added milk to fill and put it in the mix when I realized I never used the oil. So I just threw in the oil and they still came out great, moist and tender..... just perfect

Focaccia Bread

Reviewed: Nov. 29, 2009
Here's what I do each and every time I fix this bread. I make the dough plain, After the first rise I punch it down and put it on a cookie sheet and push or roll it to fill out the cookie sheet. I then put the dimples in with my knuckles, let rise again to about and inch or more high. Then I brush on good olive oil and sprinkle all over with seasonings that I mixed in a small custard cup or mortar, salt, pepper, crushed rosemary and garlic powder with parsley. Sometimes I put anchovies all over or on half, depending how many like them, this is wonderful with or without anchovies. This is how my Italian mother serves Focaccia now and while I was growing up. This is also perfect to serve with dinner or use as your bread to make sandwiches

Anchovy Linguine

Reviewed: Oct. 22, 2009
I grew up with a similar recipe, no meat on Fridays back then, so my Mom was always busy making the meatless meals for Fridays. So I went ahead to make this recipe. It turned out great, I used a bit more garlic, also sauteed fresh mushroom (I had them in the refrig) with the garlic, a bit of clam juice instead of water, lots of fresh parsley, about 2 T fresh lemon juice and also some zest from the lemon. It was so good, I served with a fresh tomato salad and hot Italian bread. Make this and add what you like or make the changes you think would be best for you and your family. This is a great recipe to play with for your own flavor choices. Enjoy
