Coleslaw Dressing

Reviewed: Mar. 28, 2008
Very simple to make! I added celery seeds, a bit of salt and pepper, and mixed it with broccoli slaw. I let it sit for six or so hours to marinate a bit, it was very tasty! What's even better -- is that this recipe has ingredients that are *always* around the house, so there's no need to ever buy slaw dressing again!

Honey Wheat Bread II

Reviewed: Mar. 8, 2008
Wow. That bread is fantastic! I'm going to make this recipe a staple around our house. I used 1/2 cup of honey, and it was a very subtle flavor, I also increased the salt by 1/2 tsp and exchanged one cup of white flour for another of wheat. I had to allow for very long rising times since it's winter - they were a full inch above the pan when I put the in the oven. The result is a beautifully fluffy texture that's full of flavor. I just made this a second time, and added a 1/2 cup of quick oats. This made for a heartier texture, great for sandwich bread!

Split Pea Soup with Rosemary

Reviewed: Mar. 1, 2008
This soup is fabulous. I made a bunch of changes out of necessity, since I wanted to try making it with what I had on hand. I used: a full 2 cups of split peas, and upped the liquid to 2 quarts. I omitted the leeks, celery and the bay leaves, because I didn't have any, so I added a large onion and about 2 cups of sliced carrots. I also increased the rosemary (dried) to a full tablespoon. The soup was slightly too thin for my taste, so as suggested by another reviewer, I made a butter roux and added that to the finished soup. It was FANTASTIC, no need to blend, it was perfect! My boyfriend and I both love this recipe, it's a keeper!

Heavenly Chocolate Mousse

Reviewed: Feb. 17, 2008
Definitely a keeper. I made mine with strong coffee instead of water, and I added a tad of vanilla to the whipping cream as well. Top it off with homemade whipped cream and some raspberries, and you'll feel like you've died and gone to heaven.

Beer-Boiled Shrimp

Reviewed: Feb. 9, 2008
This was great! I didn't have any onions, but I will definitely try it with them next time. I cut way back on the butter, mainly because I served them with clarified butter. I also added garlic cloves and Old Bay. Definitely a keeper!

DeeAnn's Cheesy Bacon Cabbage

Reviewed: Jan. 20, 2008
This was very tasty, but it was missing something. I might add some celery seeds next time around, or some other spice. I reduced the cheese by half and only used 4 pieces of thick bacon. I also added onions, like many of the reviewers suggested. I found it necessary to cover the cabbage with a little bit of water to get it done without scorching it, but I was using a cast iron skillet, so that might have had something to do with it. Overall a good recipe, will use again.

Reuben Dip

Reviewed: Jan. 2, 2008
This was great! I made mine in a crock pot about 4 hours ahead of time. I probably could have gotten away with only 3 hours. I used double the meat and more dressing to make it creamier. I served it with triscuits and pretzel snaps, it was a total hit! Just like eating the sandwich! There was some left over because our party was small, so I froze leftovers and plan to reheat and add some more dressing for a second go-around! This would be something really easy to prepare and freeze for unexpected guests!

Grandma's Green Bean Casserole

Reviewed: Jan. 2, 2008
Doubled the recipe.. I made some alterations as per the suggestions of other reviewers. I decreased the sour cream slightly, but then discovered that by doing that I wasn't really left with something that had enough sauce, in my opinion. I added tablespoons of half and half to make it creamier, and enough sour cream until it didn't seem so dry. I used fresh steamed green beans and mixed half of the cheese in with the beans. The other half I put on top with a full can of French fried onions. I also tossed some cooked bacon in there too. I guess I made a lot of adjustments, but kept the spirit of the dish! I barely had any leftovers from a dinner of only 6!

Christmas Sandwich Cremes

Reviewed: Dec. 21, 2007
These cookies are wonderful! I think that the reviews that say they aren't sweet enough must have left out the step where you coat the cookies with sugar. They were very light and sweet, with a beautiful flaky texture. I doubled the recipe for Christmas, and did half with green icing and half with red icing. Everyone loved them, even my father, who is a sworn chocoholic!

Sauerkraut-Stuffed Slow-Cooked Pork Roast

Reviewed: Oct. 6, 2007
Very excellent, next time I may add more sauerkraut so we can have it with the leftovers! I served this with homemade mashed potatoes with blue cheese, it was a total hit!

Spinach, Egg, and Pancetta with Linguine

Reviewed: Apr. 15, 2007
This was a very unique pasta dish, we really enjoyed it! As suggested, I halved the amount of pasta. I also added a tablespoon of garlic and a medium white onion, thinly sliced. Next time I will add more red pepper to give it a bit more zing.

Four Cheese Macaroni

Reviewed: Apr. 1, 2007
My boyfriend said that this was the best macaroni and cheese he's ever had! I changed the following: 2 cups half and half, 1/2 a cup of milk, 1 1/2 sticks of butter. I just used the cheese I had on hand, about half a stick of Velveeta, 1 cup of colby jack and 1 cup of Amish Bleu cheese. I added a small white onion to the butter and sauteed it for a minute before adding the macaroni. Half way through cooking I took it out of the oven, mixed if up to make sure the cheese was fully incorporated and then added a breadcrumb topping of plain bread crumbs, olive oil and garlic salt. I cooked it a bit longer than listed to make sure it was nice and crisp on the top! It was AMAZING!! I'm making this for my boyfriend's family reunion this year.

Cilantro Chicken Salad

Reviewed: Apr. 1, 2007
Made some changes after reading the reviews. I marinated the chicken in soy sauce and chicken broth, and we grilled the chicken at a very high temperature to make it just a little crisp, but still tender on the inside. I mixed the rest of the ingredients as a dressing and served the chicken strips over a green salad. It was fabulous!

Grilled Corn on the Cob with Morton Hot Salt Butter

Reviewed: Apr. 1, 2007
Absolutely a fabulous way to eat corn! I added garlic and a bit of cayenne for extra kick. Had a bit left over and found out it makes a wicked good spread for garlic bread!

Curried Honey Mustard Chicken

Reviewed: Jan. 20, 2007
After reading the reviews I modified the recipe by adding more curry and cooking for a longer period of time. I liked the overall taste, however I felt that the honey overpowered the rest of the ingredients. Next time I would use half of what's called for. Adding cumin was a great idea!
