Rich Mashed Potatoes

Reviewed: Nov. 25, 2011
Best mashed potatoes ever! I used about 1/2 the container of sour cream and about 1/3 of a brick of cream cheese and no onion salt or garlic powder, just salt and pepper. My husband said they were fantastic!

Turkey Brine

Reviewed: Nov. 25, 2011
A-MAZING! I always wanted to brine a turkey but was afraid of the "too salty" issue. I read a lot of reviews and decided to just do it! I decided to go the expense and use celtic sea salt (didn't want all that sodium.). I used 3/4 cup instead of the full cup. Brined a 20lb. turkey for 16 hours. I put it in the oven uncovered at 500 degrees for a 1/2 hour, then reduced the heat to 325. I checked it in 3 1/2 hours and it was more than done, but not in the least dried out. It was the juiciest turkey I have ever eaten. I used fresh herbs, but could not taste them at all. The gravy was perfect after adding the flour and water mixture. There was no need to season the gravy and it was outstanding in flavor. I also found the brining bag at Bed, Bath & Beyond and put the turkey ina cooler surrounded by ice. I will definitely be brining again next year.

Oven Roasted Parmesan Potatoes

Reviewed: Nov. 9, 2011
Will definitely be my go to recipe! Before my husband even took a bite, he said, Wow, those look good! They browned up just like the picture. The spice mix was perfect and they were crispy on the outside, tender on the inside. Not to mention, very easy to throw together. Thanks for the recipe!

Italian Sausage Soup with Tortellini

Reviewed: Nov. 6, 2011
This soup is 10 STARS for flavor for sure! I used homemade beef stock with 1/2 qt. home canned tomatoes with the juice in place of the 4 lg. tomatoes (what I had on hand) and I did not add water or red wine. I added substancially more carrots, a 16 oz. bag of tortellini and 1 1/2 lb. sausage. I had frozen basil in the freezer in ice cube trays from my garden so I threw in one large cube of basil instead of 1/2 Tbps. fresh. This soup was outstanding! And both my sons and my husband said that it was their favorite soup ever! I will be making this often. It was also VERY EASY to through together.

Citrus Shortbread Cookies

Reviewed: Nov. 2, 2011
Didn't use almond extract, just extra vanilla (husband doesn't like.). I liked these, however the DH did not. So...I won't be making these again.

Tender Breaded Turkey Cutlets

Reviewed: Nov. 2, 2011
This was just okay. I will stick to my ususal dipping the turkey breasts in egg, then dipping in crumbs & parmesan. The coating didn't really stay on the turkey real well.

Pumpkin Maple Pie Supreme

Reviewed: Oct. 30, 2011
Amazing! I would give this 10 STARS if I could! This is by far the best, creamiest, tastiest pumpkin pie I have ever eaten. First of all I have an abundance of butternut squash from my garden, so after I baked it and prcessed in my food processor, I used that instead of the sugar pumpkin. I also eliminated the3/4 cup of brown sugar. I can't imagine why you would need so much sugar in this recipe?? (We don't eat refined sugar anyway.) The only other change I made was to reduce the ginger and the nutmeg to 1/2 tsp. I was afraid that it might be to much as written. As others noted it was very runny when I put it into the oven, but it solidified beautifully in the oven. All in all the end result was FANTASTIC!

Classic Peanut Butter Cookies

Reviewed: Oct. 9, 2011
Great cookie, maybe a tad dry. Next time I would under cook a little more than I did this time around. I used and extra 1/4 cup peanut butter and flour. I really don't think I will add the extra flour next time either, maybe a Tbsp. or two. I normally do not use any sugar other than sucanat, however this time I stuck to the recipe. Next time I will try subbing the sucanat. Oh, and I did not chill in the fridge before I baked them

Pumpkin Pecan "Brownies"

Reviewed: Oct. 9, 2011
I thought these were wonderful! As did my son and a friend of his, however my picky husband did not like them at all. I did use 1 1/4 cup sucanat instead of white sugar which I never use. For the frosting I used maple syrup instead of powdered sugar and I only added about 3 Tbsp. rather than 1 1/2 cups. and the frosting was plenty sweet! I didn't need all the frosting. I had about 1/2 left.

Pear Bread II

Reviewed: Oct. 2, 2011
This bread was FANTASTIC! Probably the best I have made yet. I cut the recipe in half and made 1 bread, so due to the fact that 2 breads called for 3 eggs, I choose to use 1 egg because I upped the pears to 2 cups (that's what I had and didn't want to waste them). I subbed the white sugar for sucanat and everything else was the same. The baking time was right on, to the minute! This bread was VERY moist, but not gooey, just perfect with a crunchy top. Even my husband agreed that this bread was GREAT. I will definitely be making this again. Thanks for the recipe!

Stuffed Strawberries

Reviewed: Sep. 17, 2011
Everyone RAVED! They were as pretty as they were tasty! Although, I do have to say they were quite time consuming. I drizzled milk chocolate over them after they were stuffed. I cut the sugar in half and used 1 tsp. vanilla instead of the orange liquor.

Cheese-Stuffed Jalapenos

Reviewed: Sep. 5, 2011
Loved the filling! I was unsure about it at first because I have always made these with parmesan cheese, but I followed the filling ingredients exactly and it was superb! I boiled the peppers for 5 minutes and I did use banana peppers because that's what I had in my garden and baked them for 10 minutes and they were perfect. Oh, and I wrapped a half piece of bacon around the peppers rather than crumbling it on top. It seemed to help hold the filling in. These were very good and I will use this recipe from now on.

Cucumber Nut Bread

Reviewed: Aug. 14, 2011
I'm sorry, but we didn't like one. I had high hopes due to the abundance of cuc's in my garden, but my husband would not eat it. It had a very distinct cucumber taste, whereas in making zucchini bread the zucchini kind of gets lost in the bread; the cucumber did not. Maybe if you were to bump up the spices substantially to disquise the cucumber flavor it might be better, however I will not be making this bread again.

Southern Grilled Barbecued Ribs

Reviewed: Jun. 11, 2011
This is the most AMAZING Bbq sauce I've ever tried. I hate using the bottled stuff with all the high frutcose corn syrup in it, but every time I try making my own sauce, my husband asks for the bottled stuff. THIS sauce IS OUTSTANDING! The only thing I did different was use maple syrup instead of brown sugar.

White Chili II

Reviewed: Jun. 8, 2011
Good, not outsanding. Used 3 jalapenos and that was perfect for a medium-hot heat. Used 1 1/2 tsp. cumin and 1 tsp. salt which was definitely needed otherwise it was fairly bland. And I used only 1 can of beans. It was a nice dinner for a change, but I will probably not make it again. I served it with cornbread.

Slow-Cooked German Short Ribs

Reviewed: Jun. 6, 2011
Pretty good! Nice sauce. Not outstanding, but made a very nice dinner. I didn't have any chili sauce so I used ketchup, nor did I have red wine so I used beef broth. I subbed the sugar for maple syrup and doubled the sauce. I did not see the need to thicken the sauce at the end with the flour and water. * hours on low was perfect!
