Potato Skillet

Reviewed: Dec. 14, 2009
This is almost the same as my "Hashbrown Omelet" that I have cooked for years. I just browned a good amount of hashbrowns, packed them on bottom and sides making a 'crust'. I then added my crumbled bacon mixed in with my eggs, then cooked on low with a lid until eggs were set. Then added my cheese to melt. Delicious!

Gourmet Sweet Potato Classic

Reviewed: Nov. 23, 2010
I made this for a church pot luck dinner w/o the flour as we have 2 women with gluten/wheat alergies. It was great! It went over real well, especialy with the gluten girls. I can't really see how the flour could possibly improve on it, so will leave it out in the future as well. I did double the recipe and cheated using 2 large cans of sweet potatoes as I had other things to cook. I am making it again for our family Thanksgiving dinner and have no doubt it will go over just as well there.

Orzo with Parmesan and Basil

Reviewed: Dec. 28, 2010
This was my 1st time cooking orzo alone and not in a pilaf and it was a big success! I was unable to use chicken broth, but used water and chicken bullion and it worked just fine. Also had no fresh basil so used dried and it was still great! This is a great change from traditional mac and cheese that is much tastier too. Thanks for this recipe.

Quick Chicken Piccata

Reviewed: Mar. 2, 2013
This is really great! I pounded my chicken a little thinner and because I used really big, thick breasts, I only used 2, then cut them in 1/2 to make 4 cutlets, but doubled the sauce to have extra for the pasta. If you are having trouble with this, watch the video of Chef John's. This has a video link under the picture, but here's a url: http://allrecipes.com/weblink/63560143/video-quick-chicken-piccata---allrecipescom/detail.aspx Follow Chef John's instructions and you won't go wrong!

Marmalade Pork Chops

Reviewed: Jan. 9, 2011
These were great, like others, I cut back on the soy sauce. I also added some ground cloves that really brought a great taste to it. Served it with a barley "stuffing", made with barley cooked in chicken broth with craisens and sage added. They went really well together, almost a Thanksgiving dinner.

Slow Cooker BBQ Pork Chops

Reviewed: Jan. 16, 2011
I made this with a pork tenderloin and it was fantastic! My husband had 2nds and 3rds. Very easy, especially since I used a slow cooker liner. It made for super easy clean up.

Orangecicle Cake

Reviewed: Mar. 5, 2011
I have made this cake twice now, once as written and once with white cake mix as others suggested. Both times it was Super Fantastic! My husband could not get enough, my grandkids scarfed it down like water, saying it tasted like ice cream. I put the manderin oranges on top and with the white cake, saved the syrup from the oranges and used it in place of water in the cake. I did add extra orange extract for my personal taste, but can't really find anything to fault in this. It is fast becoming a family favorite I'll take to church and family functions for years.Update, I learned 1 thing, put the jello over it slooowly so it will have more of a chance to soak in rather than most going around the edges to the bottom of the cake, which is still good anyway! Also, I did this from memory last night and forgot the vanilla extract, but no one could tell the difference. I just can not tell how good this is, my husand and grandkids would eat this every day and beg me to make it constantly. It tastes great with the orange and the white cake mixes. I like to switch up on them. I FOUND THAT 1/2 TABLSPOON ORANGE EXTRACT IS PERFECT INSTEAD OF A WHOLE 1.

Beef Stew VI

Reviewed: Apr. 11, 2011
I threw this all together in my slowcooker and it was amazing! I couldn't get it to thicken, but it didn't need it, just mashed the potatoes a bit and was fine. I did use beef broth as was out of beef boulliion, but it was still amazing. I'll have to try this again when I have time to do the actual cooking and not use my slow cooker.

Chicken Piccata

Reviewed: Jun. 2, 2011
This is a pretty good basic recipe. I added garlic powder and basil to the flour and after browning the chicken, I cooked some minced garlic and portabella mushrooms. I also ended up tripling the sauce as it kept reducing so fast. But boy was it worth it! Absolutely fabulous! I think this will be my go to recipe with my modifications.

Modenese Pork Chops

Reviewed: Jun. 14, 2011
Absolutely delicious! I accidently overcooked it so it wan't as tender as it could have been, but that was my fault not the recipe's fault. I had to use vermouth and cooking sherry as out of wine. Also some chicken broth when it cooked down too far. Great with the "Orzo with bsdil and parmesan" here on this site. They were fabulous together.

Peaches and Hubby's Golden Wedding Punch

Reviewed: Jun. 20, 2011
I made this the 1st time exactly as written for a bridal shower. I found out 1 very important thing, DO NOT MAKE UNTIL READY TO SERVE! I had put frozen strawberries in it as some suggested and they thawed and diluted the punch and made it tangier than it was and it was pretty tangy to begin with. I took the left over punch home and my husbnd and I played around with it and found adding a banana to it helped immensly to smooth out the taste. Mountain Dew helped too. So had some ideas for when I was making it for the starring role at a 50th wedding annicversary party. put the oj concentrate and 3 banas in the blender with a little pineapple juice and stirred that into the punch container with the rest of the pineapple juice and 2 bottles of Sprite and a large bottle of V-8 fusion tropical colada and it was smooth and perfect. I got rave reviews and asked what was in it. I give it 3 stars as written, as it's a good base to start with, 5 with My husband and my changes.

Lemon Chicken Piccata

Reviewed: Sep. 29, 2011
I followed others advice and didn't make medallions, though, if I have a larger crowd to cook for, I think it would be a good idea to stretch the chicken out. That said, this was amazing! The only change I did was to replace 1/4 cup of broth with sweet vermouth to offset some of the lemon's tartness. My husband loved it too, I had no leftovers at all. Great recipe! Updat: I made this last night and added sliced baby portabella mushrooms, was enen better! Family was wanting to lick the pan. LOL

Carrot Cake

Reviewed: Nov. 9, 2011
I made this almost as written. I did exchange 1/2 the oil with applesauce, (Had to use regular as out of unsweetened, made no difference.) This was amazingly good. I made the frosting with half and half instead of the heavy whipping cream and it was fabulous too. It seemed to make a lot more than the cake really needed, but was oh so good to catch the drips. The only thing different I'll do is add an additional cup of carrots because we really like a lot of carrots.

Beef Stroganoff with Noodles

Reviewed: Nov. 16, 2010
This is a can't miss recipe! I forgot the bacon, misread what to do with the mushrooms and ended up putting them in with the onions and garlic. (I did add garlic because we like it.) I also used a 1lb round steak sliced into strips because that was what I had. I did wait until just before serving to add the sour cream though and my husbsnd loved it and so did I! I also breaded before browning, adding some of the spice into the flour. Perfect thickness of the sauce. Poured over egg noodles. 1 thing I almost forgot, I used beef boullion for the broth since I was out of beef broth.

Perfect Pumpkin Pie

Reviewed: Nov. 26, 2011
This really is a perfect pumpkin pie. I do add some allspice to it though. For a holiday change up, use egg nogg instead of the sweetened milk. Just measure the ounces into a measuing cup. Also I added about 1/4 cup sugar as it wasn't as sweet. BTW this makes much more than 1 pie, doubled, you have enough for 3 pies. ***NOTE: This recipe makes for 1-9" DEEP Dish pie it is too much for a regular pie pan!***

Easy Bake Fish

Reviewed: Dec. 3, 2011
This is great! I was out of dijon so I used spicy brown mustard. I also soubled the sauce to have some to go over the rice. I'm very glad I did. My husband gobbled down 2 pieces, I was wishing I had made more so I could have 2nds myself. My grandson's fiancee who loves fish and is very picky even made more sauce on the side because she liked it so much.

Cheesecake Topped Brownies

Reviewed: Dec. 28, 2011
This was amazing! I didn't have a brownie mix on hand so had to make homemade brownies. spread the mix thin in a larger pan and put the cheese cake mixture over. To keep it from seperating, I swirled some of the 2 together in the middle, just a little and had no troule. To top it, I made a sweet ganach with 9 ozs semisweet chocolate chips and 1/2 cup heavy cream heated to just boiling then poured over chips and stirred until fully incorperated. I waited for it to cool, but still be pourable before pouring over thee brownies. I refrigerated it for a day then cut in squares to put on a serving platter. They were a pretty big hit at our family Christmas party. Very yummy.

Best Brownies

Reviewed: Dec. 28, 2011
This was my first time making homemade brownies and I had to as was out of mixes. I was making cheesecake topped brownies from this site. This was very easy and I ended up making a double batch as 1 batch did not fill the bottom of my extra large pan. I wanted a thin brownie with the cheesecake. It did come out thicker, but very moist and delicious. It really complimented the cheesecake over which I poured a chocolate ganache. Everyone raved about it, saying the brownies would be great on their own, they were just that good. I will be making them by themselves in the future. They were pretty sweet and chocolaty so I may just sift some powdered sugar over them w/o any other topping.
