Byrdhouse Marinated Tomatoes and Mushrooms

Reviewed: Dec. 20, 2014
Excellent! I added about 2 Tablespoons of cider vinegar to the dressing which I definitely recommend. Fresh basil is also a must. I don't think it would be nearly as good with dried.

Grilled Marinated Shrimp

Reviewed: May 17, 2013
This is an excellent marinade for grilled shrimp! I did not use parsley because I didn't have any and certainly didn't miss it since its not my favorite herb anyway. I only marinated about an hour and it was great. Then I grilled them on my Big Green Egg Grill. I didn't baste during the cooking and I don't think it's necessary. Especially since I made a lemon garlic butter that I drizzled on them for serving. Delicious!

Marinated Mushrooms

Reviewed: Jan. 9, 2012
These are way better Thant any that come from a jar! And very easy to make. I made them to go in the Solianka recipe by Karena on this site. They were great in the soup and also fabulous all by themselves.

Solianka or Russian Beef Soup

Reviewed: Jan. 9, 2012
Such an odd list of ingredients but don't let it scare you, it is very good! I did not have any marinated mushrooms in a jar so I made my own ahead of time using the Marinated Mushroom recipe by Silvia Raynor on this site. I made this for my Christmas Eve soup party where I make 3 different kinds of soup and this one was the favorite.

Reviewed: Jan. 9, 2012
Superb! It needs about 1 1/2 the dressing for my taste but it is delish!

Liquid Hot Apple Pie

Reviewed: Jan. 9, 2012
A perfect winter drink! I do not add the alcohol to the mix after its done simmering. I add it to the individual servings which allows it to be served to those who don't drink alcohol as well. Even though I find myself adding rum to just about every cup I serve. ;)

Braised Balsamic Chicken

Reviewed: Jan. 9, 2012
I made this as written with the exception of adding some mushrooms. The rosemary was overpowering for my taste. I will make it again but will only use 1/4 teaspoon rosemary. As other reviewers stated, I believe the higher quality balsamic you use the better it will be.

Hasty Chocolate Pudding

Reviewed: Mar. 17, 2011
I can't stop making this pudding! Its so incredibly easy and delicious. I added about 1/8 tsp of salt with he sugar, cocoa, and cornstarch then I added a tablespoon of butter with the vanilla...perfect! The hardest part about this recipe is waiting for it to cool enough before eating it.

Sarah's Applesauce

Reviewed: Mar. 10, 2011
This is the perfect recipe to use up a bunch of apples before they go bad. It's delicious. I used half the sugar and it was plenty. Especially good after its cooled in the refrigerator overnight.

Hungarian Mushroom Soup

Reviewed: Dec. 29, 2010
This is one of my favorite soups now. It's nearly perfect as is but I do up the amount of lemon since I like the tangyness it adds. I use at least the juice of half a lemon if not more and also cut the parsley amount in half. Love it!

Caramels

Reviewed: Dec. 29, 2010
When my 'caramel making' friend moved away and I couldn't just eat her caramels whenever she made them, I decided I better figure out how to make them because caramels are my all time favorite candy. I have made this recipe twice now and they have come out perfectly each time and I absolutely love them...maybe a little too much because i can't stop eating them and they aren't so good for the waistline but they are delicious!!! They do require a long stirring session (approx 45 minutes) to bring them up to 248-250 degrees but its worth the effort. I use a heavy Le Creuset pot which I believe is ideal for this type of recipe.

Shredded Brussels Sprouts

Reviewed: Nov. 21, 2010
I really like brussel sprouts but for those of you who do not share my fondness for them, I bet you will after you try this recipe. These are so good. The only thing I did differently was that I quartered the brussel sprouts instead of shredding them. Other than that, I saw no need to mess with a good thing! :)

Oatmeal Peanut Butter Cookies

Reviewed: Nov. 20, 2010
These are the best peanut butter cookies I have ever had. They are perfect! I made them for my mom for her birthday because peanut butter cookies are her favorite. Now she will have a new favorite...Oatmeal Peanut Butter Cookies. The only change I made was that I used 3/4 cup butter and 1/4 cup shortening.

Colleen's Potato Crescent Rolls

Reviewed: Jul. 1, 2010
This is my 'go-to' recipe for any kind of roll. They are delicious no matter what shape you make them. I especially like to use this dough for making cinnamon rolls... they come out perfect.
