Seven Layer Dip

Reviewed: Jun. 16, 2008
Made it for a BBQ yesterday and literally every single person there complimented me on it. Omitted cumin as i do not like it. Added taco seasoning to the white layer, so did not use salt in the other layers. I had made Salsa II previously, so used that as my salsa layer but increased to 2 C to cover. also used 2 C Mexican blend shredded cheese, a large can sliced olives (might do chopped next time), and two whole green onions :)

Southern Hollandaise Sauce

Reviewed: Jan. 28, 2011
Thanx so much for all the glowing reviews -- my grandmother has since passed, and it warms my heart to know that her cooking has touched so many people :)................................................ Edit: For those of you having trouble with curdling, it is key that the top of the double boiler be ABOVE (not sitting in) the simmering (not boiling) water to prevent overheating. Also, make sure you whisk in the lemon juice OFF the heat. America's Test Kitchen just released their recipe, and it is almost identical in technique. As for the amount of lemon juice, this is how it was served to me my entire childhood, and I always found it bland at restaurants, so experiment to find your personal preference!

Creamy Dill Dip II

Reviewed: Oct. 24, 2006
This was very easy in a mini food processor. I used an entire blister pack of "baby" dill, and it was still not enough for me. I used one and a half cloves garlic, and it was a bit much for others but perfect for my taste. I did not have to use milk, it was a nice thick dip for veggies :)

Steak Hash

Reviewed: Dec. 15, 2008
my boyfriend's roomie had made steak and baked red potatoes, which were still there the next time i came over, so i offered to make a hash with them and we had "breakfast for dinner". had enough ingredients to more than double the recipe, so had to use a large pot. the boyz could not even wait for eggs, and raved about the hash which i served with sauteed green beans. will serve eggs with the leftovers :)

Spanish Pork with White Wine

Reviewed: Nov. 6, 2008
I used red wine, as i had it on hand and prefer it, and the dish turned out beautifully. I removed the roast after fully cooked, and reduced the "liquids" down with a little cornstarch and made a delicious gravy to serve with mashed red potatoes. A little fresh ground pepper, and it was wonderful (and i do not even like pork :)

Italian Green Beans

Reviewed: Jun. 16, 2008
Wishbone Bountifuls lends itself REALLY well to this recipe with big chunks of veggies. 25 minutes overcooked mine, but the second time i cooked until tender-crisp :)

South Texas Style Tartar Sauce

Reviewed: Jan. 14, 2007
Also, just did it in a mini-processor, but it was lacking something, so i added the juice from a small lemon, could have even used more, but excellent :)

Bagna Cauda

Reviewed: Jan. 9, 2007
I make this dish every holiday, but served this specific version for my latest New Year's Feast, and it ended up being the main attraction. Opened with the dip, and when my guests finished the meal, we all stayed at the table just dipping foccacia. I was asked for the recipe, and typically I do not tell people about the anchovies until after they have tasted it, but it did not sway my friends as they all were pleased to know what that special something was :)

Pea Salad

Reviewed: Oct. 24, 2006
Much like my Gamommy's, I love the addition of mustard, but could use a little more cheese. Sure does not make much :)

Easy Beef Stroganoff

Reviewed: Dec. 11, 2010
Fiance wanted Stroganoff with ground beef (my mum uses cubed) and this was the only recipe that called for fresh mushrooms (my mum uses canned). it was exactly what we were looking for, although i think it could stand to have even more than 6 oz shrooms. did not use lean ground, and with all that broth was worried the sauce would be thin or greasy, but it came out perfectly. used a mere 1/4 tsp S&P, and left each person to season more than that to their liking. normally do not post when there are so many, but felt the simplistic nature of the recipe was being misrepresented as "bland" :)

Rice Seasoning Mix

Reviewed: Apr. 29, 2011
i cannot eat nuts, so made without, and had an abundance of old bouillon cubes, so just crushed them. this is my default rice recipe for everything from seafood to beef. i use about 1.5 T mix, and i add a couple T butter when cooking. i often just throw in a frozen bag of veg for an integrated side dish :)

Fantastic Grilled Potatoes

Reviewed: Jul. 3, 2014
First day of monsoon season, so it is finally cool enough to grill outside! Needed something to accompany our organic rib eye steaks, and the hubby wanted foil packet potatoes. I cubed the russets and used a green bell pepper, as that is our preference. Halved the onions, and sliced thickly. Used five organic white mushrooms (could use more). Half a teaspoon salt (not enough). Have never heard of vegetable flakes, so sprinkled with (spicy) Mrs. Dash, on the advice of other reviewers. Used 2 T unsalted butter, and 1 T olive oil (to prevent sticking in lieu of cooking spray). Forgot to poke holes and took 40 minutes in the top rack of our gas grill. Hubby was over the moon about these -- I will keep tweaking and report back...

G-ma's Rice

Reviewed: Jun. 6, 2009
started with a Mexican brand rice. the only tomato sauce i had was low sodium, so increased the salt to 1/2 t. had just under 3 C "no chicken broth", so added water to make up the difference. threw in half an onion because of personal taste, and a jalapeno for color and heat. after twenty minutes it had cooked perfectly, but filled up my largest skillet, so next time i will use a stockpot. it was fluffy and exactly the taste i was hoping for :)

Carrot Soup

Reviewed: Sep. 1, 2007
had some carrots that i needed to use up, and had all the other ingredients on hand except basil, substituted dill. excellent taste, but i use 1/4 t cayenne on a daily basis, and 1 T was even too much for me. my lips were tingly after every bite :)

Day Before Pay Day Fried Rice

Reviewed: Jun. 6, 2008
I now use this every time i order-in Chinese as the white rice is always left over, and is usually exactly 3 C. I used toasted sesame oil for added flavor, and cubed boneless skinless chicken thighs to keep it from being dry (this increases the cooking time). Everyone i have served this loves it -- i suggest a little Tamari poured on when re-heating :)

Bucket Salad

Reviewed: Jul. 9, 2011
a childhood friend's mother made something like this (w/o the meat, and with hidden valley ranch), so was very excited to find this recipe!?! have made it many times as written, to much praise from others, but thought i would review it as my husband is TDY, so i made it with a meatless soy substitute -- and it is just as good (Lightlife Smart Ground Mexican Style seasoned veggie protein crumbles :)

German French Toast

Reviewed: Oct. 13, 2006
So simple, and yet sooooo yummy. I used the sliced, packaged, store brand muenster, so I could stand a little more cheese flavour, but as a person who does not like sweet, I have found my ideal french toast!?!

Mamaw Thelma's Instant Potato Salad

Reviewed: Jul. 5, 2011
i do not know if it matters what brand of instant potatoes you use, but i used Kroger, and this came out like potato soup. made an additional cup of flakes with one cup boiling water, added to the cold first batch, and it corrected the consistency problem, but had to double all the other ingredients to adjust the taste. to each serving, added a hard boiled egg, a little fresh ground pepper and garlic salt, and it was a nice quick substitute for potato salad from scratch. will play with the recipe and post my findings :)
