Candied Chicken Breasts

Reviewed: Apr. 14, 2011
I am quite sure I reviewed this about 8-10 years ago, but cannot find it to revise. SO- -I will write a new one. I have been making this for some time and from the beginning decided that pan frying it before baking was an unnecessary step. Recently, I decided breading the chicken and baking was as well. What it has evolved to in my house is more of an american chinese dish. I cut the chicken breasts into chunks, dredge in seasoned flour and pan fry till brown. I remove the chicken from the pan and mix in the ingredients for the sauce, reducing the sugar, mustard, and ketchup quantities, replacing water with pineapple juice, and adding an overflowing teaspoon of Tiger sauce and pinch of Five Spice powder. When that is blended and boiling, I add just under a bag of broccoli stirfry veggie mix, heat through and return chicken to pan. When chicken is cooked through, I serve over brown rice. Works for us!

White BBQ Sauce

Reviewed: Apr. 1, 2010
Good stuff! I replace the white vinegar with equal amount of Chiavetta's marinade (Upstate NY staple) and it is pure awesome.

Classic Cuban Midnight (Medianoche) Sandwich

Reviewed: Aug. 25, 2008
I had left over center cut pork chops that I thinly sliced, and added a thin spread of italian dressing to the bread before mayo and mustard. We used portuguese rolls, which are denser and crustier. What a great sandwich. The pickles make it, don't leave the pickles out!! Not like the real thing but as close as we'll get in upstate NY.

Praline Sweet Potatoes

Reviewed: Aug. 25, 2008
This is fantastic. I am required to make this every Thanksgiving! I did make a few changes. I used brown sugar instead of white and used only two eggs to give it more like mashed sweet potatoes and less like pie. I cut the vanilla back to one tablespoon, it is enough flavor without being overpowering. I also added 1/4 teaspoon salt, it really enhances the flavor. I've made this many times and I never used all the topping, I like it to resemble a side dish, not dessert. The kids love it and it has converted more than one "I hate sweet potatoes" resister.

Cornbread Casserole

Reviewed: Aug. 25, 2008
This is one of my husbands favorite sides. I use Jiffy corn muffin mix and 8 ounces sour cream. It is great with so many dishes from mexican to southern barbecue. Once in a while I will add a 4 ounce can of green chiles. Very yummy.

Avocado Feta Salsa

Reviewed: Aug. 25, 2008
YUM. I made this for the girls and work and it was devoured. I used 3 avocados, minced garlic and fresh lemon juice instead of the olive oil. I also added a fresh finely chopped seeded jalepeno pepper. It was a very nice change from the ordinary salsa!

Chocolate Pudding Cake IV

Reviewed: Sep. 17, 2007
I've made this a few times now. I cut down to 3 eggs and cook a little longer than 6 hours in the slow cooker, it doesn't have the texture of cake -but it's not supposed to. More like pudding/cake. We love it under vanilla ice cream or the next day for breakfast. Hey - how much worse is it than a doughnut??

Kielbasa and Cabbage

Reviewed: Sep. 17, 2007
This was very good. I used apple juice insead of water and cut out the sugar all together.I also sauted the onion and garlic in the bacon drippings till clear, added the apple juice (about a cup altogether), cut up potatoes and carrots and simmered till the potatoes were almost tender, then added the cabbage and the crumbled bacon and cooked down. In a seperate skillet I browned the sausage then added to the cabbage mixture and cooked together a few more minutes till done. My husband couldn't stop raving about this dish.

Calico Beans

Reviewed: Jan. 18, 2006
LOVE THIS! A friend brought these to a picnic we threw a few years back. She wouldn't give up the recipe, so I logged on and came across this. It is exact! I've been making ever since and everyone loves them. I also cut back on the sugar and add a bit more vinegar and mustard powder. I also usually leave out the celery, and use butter beans, cannellini beans, baked beans, and black beans. This is a bean dish, folks, it's supposed to be 'beany' and it's a side dish... Great at a barbecue for potluck. It is too sweet for a just a heaping bowl of it. It's best then next day, also. I am requested to bring this to many summer picnics. Love it!

Delicious Chocolate Cornflake Cakes

Reviewed: Dec. 29, 2005
OH MY GOSH!! I remember having these at the neighborhood christmas party when I was a little kid! I LOVED THEM!! Only the woman who made them used green chocolate melts and would sort of shape them to look like a holly leaf (kinda)and add a cinnamon candy (red hot) to the center for holly berries. Thank you for posting this!

Annie's Fruit Salsa and Cinnamon Chips

Reviewed: Dec. 29, 2005
I made this over the summer for a huge picnic. Doubled the recipe and made it with apples, kiwis, strawberries, and sweet cherries. It was gone before I finished saying hello to everyone. They all loved it, raved about it, and have requested it on several occasions since. Thank you!!

Chocolate Covered Cherry Cookies II

Reviewed: Dec. 23, 2005
Well, they SOUND great... I was a little disappointed with the texture of the cookie, a bit grainy for me. I only frosted half before cooking, and they come out better, in my opinion, to frost them after they come out of the oven and cool a bit. Not bad, but probably won't make again unless asked to.
