E-Z Drop Biscuits

Reviewed: Mar. 15, 2014
Also made without cream of tartar. Made them like Red Lobster Cheddar Bay Biscuits by adding cheddar, 1/4 tsp of garlic salt, and some chopped parsley to dough. Then melt a few tablespoons of butter and add a bit more garlic salt (just a bit - 1/8-1/4 tsp) and brush on biscuits after cooking. Very good!

Mizeria (Polish Cucumber Salad)

Reviewed: Feb. 23, 2014
used regular yogurt instead of sour cream and added some chopped parsley and finely chopped green onions- chives would also work great. Needed a bit more sugar to hit the right balance but also added more lemon juice - almost a whole lemon's worth to an entire cucumber.

Fresh Broccoli Salad

Reviewed: Feb. 19, 2014
love the dressing but I prefer it with much less onion (sometimes I use green onion instead- either way it needs to be grated or extremely finely minced), craisins instead of raisins, and no nuts.

Zucchini Saute

Reviewed: Feb. 19, 2014
great base recipe - left out the tomatoes so I could get some good browning on everything, added a chopped sweet pepper, some fresh lemon, and topped with parmesan. A local bistro near me serves this as a veggie type burger on a toasted crusty bun with melted gouda and mozz. - yum!

Apple Crisp II

Reviewed: Nov. 18, 2013
I did skip the water but also tossed the apples in a bit (half a lemon's worth) of lemon juice before the sugar/flour mix (and of course added nutmeg as others did but also put some cinnamon and nutmeg in crumble). I was making apple crisp to use up a bag of apples and think the reviewers who talk about buying 'tart, crisp' apples for perfect apple crisp need to lighten up! My apples were a little soft and sweet so I added a tiny bit less sugar and the lemon juice also helped brighten them up.I scaled it down to just over six cups of apples for my 4 person dinner party and it was PLENTY and filled a large dish and used up nearly my entire 4lb bag of overripe gingergolds. Because they were a little soft to begin with I cooked for about 5-10 minutes less than recipe recommended and it was very good. Just use common sense. I have made dozens of good crisps but liked the idea of the melted butter so gave this a try and am glad I did. Tasty and easy with the melted butter, which made a very crispy delicious crumble (which there was a perfect ratio of to the apples without screwing with the portions). 4 picky eaters agree- just leave out the water, add a bit of lemon juice, and give it a jab with a fork near the end of cooking and take out when they are at your preferred softness level.

Hash Brown Casserole II

Reviewed: Dec. 27, 2012
Pretty tasty! I have made this a few times and this past time replaced the onions with sauteed leeks and whisked 1/2 a cup of sour cream with 1 cup of milk and the soup and 1/2 the cheese before tossing everything and found the consistency and creaminess was better. I also added 1 tsp paprika to the buttered hash browns before stirring everything. No cornflakes but I put the cheese on top and baked uncovered - so good as some of the hasbrowns get a chance to crisp this way!

Surprise Cake

Reviewed: May 16, 2009
Awesome cake. I used Ancho chili powder and instead of the icing listed made cream cheese icing and topped with pieces of a lindt chili dark chocolate bar (one square of chocolate per piece of cake). My cream cheese icing was made with i container of room temp cream cheese mixed with 2 tsp vanilla, 1 tsp lemon juice, 1/2 cup icing sugar and 1 tablespoon of butter. Add a little milk if this is too thick for you. Stored in the fridge and stayed fresh for a week- everyone said it was the most delicious chocolate cake they ever had!

Grandmother's Buttermilk Cornbread

Reviewed: May 16, 2009
Very moist and sweet- delicious! I agree with other reviewers who feel the only way to make cornbread is in a preheated skillet. However I took the advice of another review and preheated my skillet to 375 and found this was too hot and the edges burned slightly. Next time I will only preheat at 325 or for only 5 min at 375

Orange Rosemary Chicken

Reviewed: May 5, 2009
Great recipe! I did alter significantly as I was short on the ingredients and prep time listed- keeping the same flavor of the original recipe. I used 2 chicken quarters (with skin of course)seasoned with 1/2 the rosemary and salt and pepper. Browned in cast iron pan then added 1 tbs. lemon juice, 1 tsp. orange zest, and 1 can (or two lunch size portions) of madarin oranges. I added some chopped chives and the rest of the rosemary, and baked at 375 for 40 min, basting with the madarin mix a few times. SO tasty and delicious! My husband thought I spent a long time on the sauce and marinade- but we know the truth ;)

Morning Glory Muffins I

Reviewed: Apr. 20, 2009
Great Recipe- just like mom used to make. I did make some adjustments- substituted 1/2 the white sugar for brown sugar for a fuller flavor, and mixed the walnuts right in with everything else. I omitted the wheat germ and sprinkled whole bran on top.
