Baked Delicata Squash with Lime Butter

Reviewed: Oct. 4, 2010
I give this five stars because it is the best combination of ingredients I have tried for Delicata squash. This is NOT the kind of vegetable that tastes good mashed up with vanilla, cream and cinnamon like pumpkin or sweet potato - (believe me, I tried cooking many ways this morning)The lime and spice bring out the flavor the best. You can add a dash of cayenne if you like. Had to upload my picture after cooking - Thanks! P.S. The SEEDS are great too. I rinsed and dried them, then baked at 275 for about 30 min. Next, heat up a tsp or less of olive oil in a pan and add lime juice, salt, chili and cayenne pepper to taste. Mix in your seeds and cook for a minute or less. Spread on paper towel and allow to dry before storing.

Morning Glory Muffins

Reviewed: Nov. 10, 2008
These little muffins are delish!! I used a dark non-stick mini-muffin pan - fill to the top and bake 16-17 min at 350. Very moist and no overpowering flavors. Great for Pre-K Snack

Baklava

Reviewed: Sep. 26, 2008
This recipe is awesome - and a tip for those who haven't worked with phylloh - don't try to brush butter on the dough in the baking dish. Lay it on your countertop instead and quickly and lightly brush vertically and horizontally -don't try to get ever single area - very thin amount is good. toast your nuts for 8-10 min at 350 to bring out nutty flavor and make sure to make sauce before and refrigerate. You want to pour cool sauce on hot baklava.

Glazed Apple Cookies

Reviewed: Sep. 28, 2007
These are yummy cookies. The edges are crispy and inside is fluffy, almost like a muffin. I omitted the raisins and replaced with extra apples. Also added a tad bit of vanilla to the mix.

Southern Fried Chicken Gizzards

Reviewed: Dec. 11, 2011
Yee-Haw! These are perfect! Since you only fry the gizzard for a minute or so, it's imperative to boil first to get the flavor and tenderness. I cut gizzards in half before cooking, and use House of Autry Chicken Breader (Publix) to coat. Batter sticks best if you bread them right after the boil, then wait a minute and shake on a second coat. I also sprinkle hot sauce after fried.

Angela's Awesome Enchiladas

Reviewed: Sep. 1, 2009
5 Stars for how pretty this looks when it comes out of the oven - great for potluck or casual company. 4 1/2 stars for taste - Made a second time with 2 cups chicken and 2 cups black beans. Also used less green chiles.

Potato Latkes I

Reviewed: Jan. 18, 2009
These were good; however, when I made the recipe exactly as written, I found it to be too much egg, too much salt, not enough taste, and too greasy. I found that the recipe tasted better when I used 1 bag of Simply Potatoes Shredded, 4 eggs, 2 tsp salt, 1/4 cup onion, and only added oil on a as needed basis. Cooked on a griddle on med-low.

Tropical Grilled Pork Chops

Reviewed: Aug. 6, 2009
Don't get mad that I didn't follow to a "T." I'm rating the mango sauce a 5 - I didn't try the rest of the recipe. I only used the mango sauce to make pork fajitas. Grilled some pork loin chops with salt/pepper/olive oil only, let them rest, slice julienne and then simmer for 15 min or so in the mango sauce. Stir fried some red/green pepper with onion and garli and then added to the pork mixture. Served on tortillas with rice and corn.

Awesome Sausage, Apple and Cranberry Stuffing

Reviewed: Jun. 28, 2008
This is so delicious but a bit time-consuming. If you want essentially the same recipe, but in less time, use the Publix Simple Apron Recipe (from Publix Grocery Store website) - tastes pretty much the same.

Apple Crunch Pie I

Reviewed: Jul. 21, 2009
Perfect! I baked in a 9" square pan and followed to a "T" The only thing I would do next time is to add only 3/4 of the topping. This is a yummy apple crunch delight! Very sweet, goes great with ice cream.

After-Thanksgiving Turkey Soup

Reviewed: Nov. 30, 2008
Excellent soup - Used only 1 stick of butter and a little more than 1/2 cup of flour. I boiled 2 diced potatoes and 1 cup of rice separately and added after soup had cooled down. This way you end up with soup instead of goop.

Chocolate Doodles

Reviewed: Jul. 31, 2008
Ok - Main reason why I used this recipe is because I needed a cookie, but I had no chocolate or butter and wanted to use what I had on hand instead of running to the store. So....I used unsweetened cocoa with oil instead. (3 Tbsp Cocoa + 1 Tbsp oil or butter = 1 oz Unsweetened Chocolate) I didn't have egg substitute so I used 2 eggs instead.(I only made 1/2 a batch) I placed batter in freezer for about 45 minutes and rolled the cookies good in the powdered sugar, and baked- they are great!

Pineapple Crisp

Reviewed: Jan. 9, 2009
This was great - 25 min in a preheated 350 with 9" square pan is enough baking time because the top is not supposed to get brown. Made both ways - with banana slices and without - tastes better WITHOUT! It also looks better without the bananas. (Only suggestion is that you should start with 1 T of cornstarch because you can always add more if you need. I only used 1T total because I cooked the wet ingredients in a non-stick frying pan which tends to evaporate liquid more quickly than a pot. Very quick recipe to put together. P.S. someone mentioned "pina colada" taste, but IMHO, I think it tastes more like the crusty topping of a pineapple upside-down cake. Delish.

Delicious Black Bean Burritos

Reviewed: Jan. 8, 2009
Sorry, but this combo doesn't work - please just skip the cream cheese - looks terrible mixed in with the beans. Just add a dollop of sour cream on top if you want. Beans were hard as rocks, not enough taste - use Goya's recipe for classic black beans and then add them to the sauteed mix.

Honey Curried Roasted Chicken and Vegetables

Reviewed: Sep. 22, 2008
Quick Alternative- I just quickly browned a pound of chicken tenders in olive oil in a skillet and then added 1/2 cup chicken broth and all the remaining ingredients (substituted dried chopped onion and garlic powder, and omitted the potatoes) Simmer for 20 minutes and serve over rice -Great dish.

Krystal's Perfect Marinade for BBQ or Grilled Chicken

Reviewed: Aug. 24, 2010
uhmmmm - ok and kids did eat, but IMO too much sesame oil. Balsamic vinegar is better on its own IMO, not mixed with soy sauce and sesame oil.

Double Tomato Bruschetta

Reviewed: Nov. 30, 2008
Delicious blend of flavors, and soooo easy. I mixed everything the night before a party and kept refrigerated. I used a loaf of French Bread that my bakery sliced thin and broiled in oven until brown. I microwaved the mixture the next morning and drained before spooning on the bread - topped with a slice of cheese before baking for 5minutes in 350 degree oven. These were a hit - also, you can reheat easily

Four Cheese Macaroni

Reviewed: Dec. 27, 2007
This is the best Mac and Cheese - it's basically a copycat of Patty Labelle's Over the Rainbow Mac and Cheese.

Sweet, Sticky and Spicy Chicken

Reviewed: Jul. 25, 2010
Pretty good. *Drizzle with honey after cooked if you need sweeter** I floured/fried too, and used less hot sauce and added thinly sliced onions/carrots. Good for buffet for party. If you don't want it sticky keep covered for 10 minutes cooking, turning once. To make sticky, just cover for the first five and then uncover for last. The sauce has to reduce to get sticky. I used two whole breasts and cut real thin.
