Reviewed: Dec. 2, 2005
Excellent recipe. Even my husband loved it. I followed the recipe except used mexican corn instead of hominy and used 2 cups of water. This will be a regular in our house.

Slow Cooker Chicken Creole

Reviewed: Jan. 19, 2007
we love spicy foods and this one was great. i placed my frozen chicken breasts in the crock pot and seasoned genourously then added the other ingredients (except celery) plus a can of rotel and small can of tomato paste. i did add an extra jalapeno for a little more of a punch. this cooked on high for 6 hours. when i got home it was perfect. the chicken done but not dry, shredded easily. served over rice. delish!!!!

Black Pepper Beef and Cabbage Stir Fry

Reviewed: Jan. 17, 2007
Really good. We both loved it. Added our own vegetables. A bag of cole slaw mix saved time over shredding the cabbage, broccoli, mushrooms and water chestnuts and one thinly sliced onion.

Granny Kat's Pumpkin Roll

Reviewed: Nov. 4, 2006
even after reading the reviews, I was still suprised at how easy it was. I have never made a roll-up before and I had no problems with this one. I followed the recipe exactly except I substituted egg beaters for the eggs. I made my icing first and refrigerated it while making, baking and cooling the roll-up. I was looking for a dessert to take for thanksgiving and I believe I will take this one.

Grandma Johnson's Scones

Reviewed: Aug. 18, 2006
okay...while browsing through this website i kept seeing this recipe. It never really interested me because I have never had a scone before so I passed it over. But as I would search different lists and the recently reviewed lists I kept seeing this recipe. So, I decided to give it a try and whoa...am I glad I did. Again, I have never had a scone before so I have nothing to compare it too but this was fantastic. I followed the recipe exactly with 2 exceptions...light sour cream and instead of raising, white choc. and cranberries. I already know what my home-made Christmas gifts will be this year. If you're looking at this recipe wondering...should I? The answer is yes. It's easy and delicious. VERY HAPPY EATS!!!

Deep-Fried Turkey Marinade

Reviewed: Nov. 27, 2006
We loved this recipe. this was our first time to make the turkey for thanksgiving and we have tough critics in my family. the only thing we did different was we brined the turkey for about 14 hours before marinating it with the rub for about 12 hours. My uncle (the self proclaimed king of the turkey) had me write the recipe down before the meal was over.

Caramel Bars

Reviewed: Sep. 22, 2006
OOEY-GOOEY YUMMY!!! I decided at the last minute to have a sweet treat for after dinner. I had 45 minutes before our guests arrived and in that time these were baked and cooling. I did cheat and had to use a jarred caramel topping since I had no time to go get, unwrap and melt caramels. But it worked out just fine. I doubled the recipe and it fit perfectly in the 9x11 pan making 24 squares(really do not see how the recipe as stated would fit). I do think I may have used too much caramel because mine looked nothing like the pictures, the caramel and chocolate were oozing out when cut (still delish though). Also, when doubled, it calls for 1.5 cups of butter...WOW! I used it, and they were great, but ohhhh...the guilt!! I think next time I will cut back to 1.25 cups of butter and use the recommended caramel sauce and see how that works. A definite must try!!!

Chocolate Covered Brownie Bites

Reviewed: Sep. 14, 2006
I love this recipe. I first made it last year around the holidays and then lost the recipe so I tried making by memory and got pretty close. I also only use the soft inside of the brownies and leave the crusty edge in the pan. I scoop mine with my cookie scoop and they turn out round on top with a flat bottom to sit on. I use a double boiler method for melting the chocolate mixture. I used toothpicks to hold the balls while dipping into the chocolate. They keep for a few days in the refrigerator, but are best served at room temperature.

Chicken and Sun-Dried Tomato Bruschetta

Reviewed: Jan. 1, 2010
All the other reviews are correct. This is a great recipe. It travels well too. I made it in the morning and refrigerated it fora few hours. We then took it with us out of town (about a 3 hr. drive) and it was still fantastic. I was afraid it would be too soggy from the dressing, but no problems. Everyone loved it!

American Lasagna

Reviewed: Dec. 15, 2006
This was sooo good that I wanted to have some for breakfast this morning(but I did maintain self control). I added a half pound italian sausage to the ground beef and an extra can of italian style diced tomatoes with a splash of red wine. I also made 3 layers using 3 noodles per layer. And we love cheese so there was lots of it. I refrigerated it for 2 days before cooking. OH SOOOOOOOOO GOOD!!!! Tip: instead of cooking the noodles, soak them in hot faucet water for a while and then layer. They absorb the water and then cook in the oven. Also, put a little sauce on the bottom of the pan, it helps with moisture.

Chocolate Pecan Pie IV

Reviewed: Nov. 29, 2007
We loved this recipe. I made this one and a regular pecan pie for Thanksgiving. While both were great...us chocoholics fought over this one! It has the perfect amount of chocolate for us, it didn't outshine the fact that it was a pecan pie, but you could definitely taste it.

Overnight Bubble Bread

Reviewed: Aug. 17, 2006
This really is one of the easiest recipes you can make...and OH MY!!! IS IT GOOD!!! I was going to half the recipe because there is only my husband and myself, but the yeast rolls I bought were already risen, so I managed to sqeeze 5 into my round baking pan (good thing because I would have eaten them until they were gone). I sprinkled just about a teaspoon of the pudding on each roll and then poured the sugar/butter mixture over them by the tablespoon. I made sure that all of the pudding was covered with the butter mix so I wouldn't have any dry/clumpy pudding on them. They have a slight taste resemblence to donuts...just a little. You definitely should try these. Even small kids could do it if the sugar/butter were done in the microwave. Just remember to invert them onto a platter when they first come out of the oven to prevent sticking. HAPPY EATS!!!

Strawberry Torte

Reviewed: Mar. 15, 2008
Ohhhh....Yummmm!!! I didn't realize just how hard it is to find ladyfingers...impossible, actually. I had to make my own following the recipe from this site. I dipped teh bottom of the ladyfingers in chocolate before adding to the pan (if you do this, spray the pan with non-stick spray before adding). I found this recipe wonderful. I only added about 3/4 of the whipped cream to the cream cheese mixture. I piped the rest onto the top of the torte. I then added chocolate dipped strawberries. Very Good Recipe!

Cajun Chicken

We really enjoyed this chicken. I followed the recipe exactly (scaled down for 2) but since it was raining I cooked it in the oven on 350 for about 25-30 minutes. Great!!
