Mini Ham And Cheese Rolls

Reviewed: Jun. 2, 2013
Made these for a hockey playoff party last night. They were a huge hit. Followed the recipe exactly, but also made a few with provolone cheese instead of swiss, because my husband doesn't care for swiss. Both kinds were gobbled up. I had four left in the kitchen that didn't fit on the serving platter, so I put them in the fridge over night. Just as yummy cold the next day. Very quick and easy to put together. I left the dinner rolls connected and just sliced off the tops, then I layered on the ham and cheese and put the tops back on. After baking, I just separated them into little sandwiches with a sharp knife. Fast, easy way to please a crowd!

Grandmother's Buttermilk Cornbread

Reviewed: Feb. 2, 2013
I wanted to make a larger batch, but don't have two 8x8 pans. I made 1 1/2 times the recipe and used a 9x13 pan. Baked for 30 minutes and it came out perfectly. Didn't change anything else. My husband doesn't like overly sweet foods, and even he enjoyed this with our chili. It is a mildly sweet, very moist end product. This is my new "go to" cornbread recipe.

Sausage Soup

Reviewed: Nov. 5, 2012
I absolutely loved this soup. I did make two l changes. I omitted the cabbage because I forgot to get some from the store, but I will make sure to get some next time. And I used fresh garlic because that is something I always have in the house. Very enjoyable on this brisk fall day. And it was very quick to throw together. This seems like a very versatile basic recipe, and would be tasty with any combination of substitutions (change up the veggies, beef or chicken broth would probably both be fine, add some herbs or spices, you could even change the type of protein used).

Awesome Spicy Beef Kabobs OR Haitian Voodoo Sticks

Reviewed: Jan. 28, 2012
Very easy and very tasty. I admit I only used half the cayenne pepper, because I don't like super spicy. And these ended up with the right amount of heat.

Buttermilk Fried Chicken with Gravy

Reviewed: Oct. 10, 2010
Very delicious! I also did not cover it to cook, preferring to keep it crisp. Also, for the gravy, I used chicken broth in place of the water - wonderful.

Sweet Party Mix

Reviewed: Sep. 6, 2010
I made this for a party and it was a huge hit. I used 1 box of Crispix, 1/2 a box of Honey Nut Cheerios, the almonds, one bag of Goldfish pretzels, 1 jar of honey roasted peanuts, and added a bag of peanut butter M&Ms after it cooked. Because I used more crunchy stuff, I increased the butter and corn syrup to 1 cup each and 2 cups of the brown sugar. Everyone at the party loved it. I will definitely make this again.

Mushrooms with a Soy Sauce Glaze

Reviewed: Sep. 3, 2010
Absolutely delicious! I did increase the soy sauce a bit, partly because of other reviews, partly because there was only a small amount left in the bottle so I just finished it off.

Best Big, Fat, Chewy Chocolate Chip Cookie

Reviewed: Apr. 25, 2010
I followed the recipe as written, but did use the mini chocolate chips. Did not chill the dough as some have said to. The cookies turned out fine, were very tasty, but definitely not any better than the recipe on the back of the yellow bag of chocolate chips. I was trying to find an *incredible* chocolate chip cookie recipe. Still searching.

Egg Noodles

Reviewed: Dec. 26, 2009
Very good basic egg noodle. Used a pizza cutter to cut them and it was quick and easy, when I tried another suggestion of rolling the dough into a log and slicing, I didn't care for the uneven shape where the sides folded from the pressure of the knife.

Rich Italian Sausage and Potato Soup

Reviewed: Nov. 8, 2009
Wonderful soup, make it all the time. I did increase the amount of sausage (and used a combination of ground hot and sweet), pancetta, and garlic (just because I love it).

Mexican Bean Salad

Reviewed: Jul. 18, 2009
I am not a huge fan of lots of beans, so I left out the cannellini and kidney beans. Made it more of a 50% corn 50% black beans mix. Also decreased the peppers a little (that was what I had). I absolutely loved it. The dressing was fantastic.

Mexican Rice II

Reviewed: Jul. 18, 2009
It turned out great! I just added some frozen veggies, the Mexican restaurants around here tend to do so. Tasted very authentic. Will definitely make again.

Layered Dulce de Leche Dessert

Reviewed: Jul. 18, 2009
I had a very hard time finding white chocolate pudding (tried 3 different grocery stores). I didn't think that regular chocolate pudding would look as appealing, so I used french vanilla. It was for a Mexican themed party. Many people tried it, and said that they liked it; but it didn't all go by the end of the night. So I would call it good, but not wonderful.

Chewy Sugar Cookies

Reviewed: Mar. 21, 2009
I call these "crack" cookies, as they are super addictive. I have made four batches in as many weeks. I just can't get enough of them. Only changes I made were to use butter (and one time I only had 2 sticks softened and they turned out fine) and I do not bother to roll in sugar. In fact, I don't roll them at all. I just drop them by the spoonful onto the baking sheet. I also don't bother to chill the dough as some have suggested. I bake for 8-10 minutes, but don't leave them on the sheet for another 5 (I'm too impatient and want to get another batch in the oven). As long as I use a very thin spatula, they come off the sheet just fine. One of my new favorite recipes, thanks!

Corn Fritters

Reviewed: Mar. 7, 2009
Just like the ones my mom used to make. I have made these several times and usually have to add about 1/4 cup additional milk. Wonderful!

Fried Artichoke Hearts

Reviewed: Mar. 7, 2009
These were really yummy. I followed another review and served it with garlic butter, excellent addition. I also think a squirt of lemon juice would be tasty. I ended up with way more egg/bread crumbs than needed so will decrease these by 1/2 next time.
