Tropical Tiramisu

Reviewed: Mar. 28, 2005
the crystallized giner and macadamia nuts made this recipe. I didn't have leftover cake so I made a white cake in a jelly roll pan, cut it in quarters and stacked those for four layers. instead of mango juice and rum extract, I used a mango flavored rum to brush on each layer, which gave great flavor to the cake. frosting the cake with cool whip really balanced it all out. decorate with fresh fruit for an impressive look! this served 10-12

Never Fail Biscuits

Reviewed: Jul. 13, 2008
these were easy - I used a food processor to mix all the dry and cut the butter in. I baked them until they were done but not brown and then froze them for my husband to pull out before work.

Chicken Fried Venison Steaks

Reviewed: Feb. 10, 2009
I thought this recipe was great! the breadcrumb/cornmeal mix was yummy and the carmelized onion was tasty and nice for presentation. I served over white rice and doubled the milk for the gravy since I had plenty of bread crumb mixture left. husband said it was interesting and different (than other chicken fried venison he'd had) but definitely good. I would even try frying veggies in this mix. I did think the egg/milk mixture was a little runny and I would have liked to taste more of the pepper sauce so I'd cut back on the milk there next time.

Caramelized Brussels Sprouts with Pistachios

Reviewed: Nov. 8, 2007
this is my new favorite snack! I use balsamic vinegar since that's what I have around and cut the brussels sprouts in half so they get more carmelization. red onions if I have them, otherwise white or yellow taste just as good. and I have never even added the pistachios, they're so good without!

Best Bobotie

Reviewed: Apr. 3, 2011
at our African themed potluck, this was one of the best dishes at the table! I used peach jam instead of apricot (and really think that for a teaspoon, any jam would work fine) and used extra because I left out the chutney. it continues to be requested!

Sky High Yorkshire Pudding

Reviewed: Oct. 28, 2007
my husband loves and insists on these every time... he eats 6 in one meal!! the first time I skipped the "smoking oil" part and was scraping them out of the pan. but when I FOLLOWED THE DIRECTIONS :) they came out clean and easy. if you're using gravy, like we always do, these don't need any salt at all. perfect recipe!

Yellow Squash and Corn Casserole

Reviewed: Nov. 19, 2007
when I initially shared this recipe I used garlic salt, but the same amount of minced garlic works fine too. I make my own biscuit mix from another recipe on this site and it turns out great!

Absolute Mexican Cornbread

Reviewed: May 6, 2008
I used half the butter, half the sugar, and pepper jack cheese... so good! I'd use the whole can of chiles next time, and I think I'll add cayenne as well, even with the pepper jack. I just tried it with whole wheat flour instead of white and it was also fantastic! added some pimentos for color too.

Enchilada Sauce

Reviewed: May 5, 2009
this mole sauce was delicious, especially since I had cheap dollar store chili powder and still got great results! I read that chili powder can be anything from straight ground chilis to ground chilis with added spices and salt, so I can imagine recipes will vary. I used all 5T and it really wasn't very spicy. I also used semisweet chocolate chips since I didn't have squares, which came to 1/4 cup for the 1 ounce that was called for. then at the last minute I added more chocolate chips because my mom thought it wasn't sweet enough. I thought the cinnamon was right on. I just stirred some cooked chicken into the sauce, served over rice, and garnished with cilantro... so good!

Homemade Plain Yogurt

Reviewed: Feb. 22, 2010
I am so happy to have a way to make my own yogurt now! I used 2 quarts of milk and 1/2 c yogurt, no dry milk, and I ended up with a nice, thick yogurt. I had to leave about 3 hours into making it, so I preheated my oven a bit, stuck the whole pot of water/yogurt in there, and lit 4 tealight candles. When I got back 3 hours later the water bath had only dropped to 108° and the yogurt was perfect! I am making more right now...

Scrambled Egg Muffins

Reviewed: Aug. 29, 2013
These were easy and delicious! I added half a red bell pepper and a few handfuls of chopped spinach and sauteed it all with the onion and bacon (didn't have sausage on hand). I added oregano because my husband is in love with it, and salted the veggie mix a little since I added extra. I didn't have muffin cup liners so I preheated my well-greased muffin tin with the oven so the oil sizzled a little when I filled the cups. They still stuck slightly but not so bad as eggs usually do in the oven. They came out pretty enough to serve to company!

Baked Fish and Rice

Reviewed: Apr. 13, 2009
this was great! I needed to use up some frozen whiting fish (which wasn't so good the last time I used it)and I didn't have any fried onions so I just added a lot of extra parm to the rice, and salt & pepper to the fish. I also used a bag of frozen mixed veggies. yum!

Sweet Potato Casserole with Bacon

Reviewed: Feb. 22, 2010
I liked this so much... I cooked half an onion in my leftover bacon grease and combined it with the crumbled bacon to top... then I just added a couple tablespoons of the bacon grease and a little milk to get the right consistency since I didn't have time to bake so long. the onion-y bacon grease gave it a great flavor! I also only added the nutmeg since I didn't want to give it too many flavors... so good!

Spicy Chicken Thai Soup

Reviewed: Jan. 15, 2013
This was great! I didn't have lemongrass so I substituted the chopped up rind of a lemon, and though I'm no expert on thai soups, it came out great for us! I doubled the curry paste also, and even then my 2 year old could handle the spice, so you'll have to add to your taste. Also, there was nothing wrong for me with the 3 Tbsp of fish sauce, I thought it added to the thai flavor of the soup.

Indian-Spiced Roasted Chickpeas

Reviewed: Jan. 20, 2010
these were so so good. I didn't even have any lemon juice or coriander and they were still so so good. I think they needed a lot of extra time to get them crunchy, but crunchy they were! be sure to leave them in long enough. will make these again, the kids loved them!
