Banana Pumpkin Bread

Reviewed: Mar. 27, 2014
This one did not impress me. It doesn't really taste like banana, nor does it taste like pumpkin. I followed the recipe except for using molasses instead of honey and 3 bananas instead of 2 (they were kind of small).

Cardamom Banana Bread

Reviewed: Mar. 27, 2014
My only variation from the recipe was to soak both the raisins and walnuts in Capt. Morgans Spiced Rum. My wife really liked it and I thought it was good, but not great.

Mexican Corn on the Cob (Elote)

Reviewed: Jul. 26, 2013
I have never been very fond of corn on the cob. For some reason, the picture along with this recipe got my attention, so I tried it. OMG, I now love corn on the cob. As many have said, the recipe doesn't sound all the good, but you must try it. I did make some tweaks as skwebster recommended. I added 1/2 t. chili powder, a dash of cayene,a dash of cummin and some salt to the mayo. I went to 3 stores before I found the grated cotija cheese. Ranch Market (a Mexican Supermarket) had it in their cheese deli in bulk. This really was great. And I even forgot the lime.

Lemon Cream Pasta with Chicken

Reviewed: Apr. 29, 2013
It was good, but not great. Like others, I thought it lacked something. I tried adding Parmesan cheese, which helped. Then I added a little salt. That made a world of difference. I did follow the recipe as written, except I used bottled lemon juice. As I cut up the baked chicken, I sneaked a bite. It was wonderful. I may just make the chicken next time.

Kalua Pig in a Slow Cooker

Reviewed: Mar. 22, 2013
So easy to make, just rub Hawaiian salt and liquid smoke on it and drop it in your crock pot.I don't know how it compares to a pig roasted in the ground since I have never been to a luau, but this make a great pot of pulled pork.

Roast Adobo Pork Loin

Reviewed: Mar. 22, 2013
I doubled the recipe since I had a 6# pork loin. This recipe is a winner. We barely made a dent in the pork loin, so I sliced the rest and put 3 slices in a zip lock bag. I had about 8 bags and put them in the freezer. I have been eating pork loin almost daily since. It makes a great breakfast burrito with a little salsa, shredded cedar cheese, scrambled eggs all wrapped up in a flour tortilla.

Grandpa Hubbard's Oatmeal

Reviewed: Feb. 16, 2013
For at least 50 years, I have been eating oatmeal like this, especially in the winter. I make the oatmeal according to the directions on the box and add a large dolop of butter/margarine and a really big tablespoon of brown sugar. I like my milk in a glass instead of on my oatmeal. It will warm you up on a cold winter day. I now make it for my grandkids when they are here.

Old-Fashioned Pancakes

Reviewed: Jan. 8, 2013
Reminds me of the pancakes my mom made when I was a kid. Easy to make and wonderful flavor. Several other reviewers complained about the salty or chemical taste. I almost put in 3 1/2 Tablespoons of baking powder, instead of 3 1/2 teaspoons. I'd bet they made that mistake. I printed out the recipe and higlighted 'teaspoons' to avoid that possible mistake.Nobody could give this recipe less than 4 stars if they made it correctly.

Potato Latkes I

Reviewed: Dec. 8, 2012
Never having eaten latkes before,I have nothing to compare these to, but they are good. I used dehydrated hash browns from Costco, made them according to the directions and then squeezed the water from it.

Cajun Deep-Fried Turkey

Reviewed: Nov. 21, 2012
Warning! If this is your first time frying a turkey, you might want to avoid a Cajun rub. I used it on my first fried turkey. After the appropriate time had elapsed, I pulled the bird out of the oil and it was BLACK! Not dark brown, but the color of your car tires. My first thought was "I hope KFC is open today." I took it inside and put it on the table. Everyone looked at it with their mouth hanging open. Dinner was ruined. Finally, my teenage nephew cut off a piece and tried it and said, "This is really good." He was right. It was the best turkey I had ever had. I realized I had made 'blackened turkey'. A few years ago, the price of peanut oil went through the roof and the size of the container went from 5 gal to 3 gal. It would have cost me nearly $70 just for the oil and I said, no more. My wife bought me an oil-less turkey fryer made by CharBroil. Instead of using 5 gal. of oil, I now use about a handful to rub on the skin. It cooks just as fast and tastes almost the same, with no danger of spilling hot oil or trying to figure out what to do with it after it cools down. I love it.

Hot Toddy

Reviewed: Feb. 26, 2012
Many years ago I had a nasty cold that wouldn't quit. Grandpa gave me this recipe and told me to drink it sitting in a hot tub of water. Then dry off quickly and get into a warm bed and cover up with a down comforter and not throw the covers off. Boy, did I sweat that night. By morning the sheets were soaked, but my cold was gone! Now my wife has a nasty cold so I'm off to start boiling water. Cheers.

Fluffy Pancakes

Reviewed: Feb. 20, 2012
A little more work than a mix, but soooo much better. I have made this twice. The 1st time I used white vinegar, the 2nd time I used apple cider vinegar. I really couldn't see any difference in taste, but the white vinegar seemed to make the pancakes rise a bit higher. I'll take them either way. Light, fluffy and tender. They are almost good enough to eat without any syrup.

The Best Steak Marinade

Reviewed: Oct. 19, 2011
Wonderful! I threw this together about 3 hours before I grilled my steaks. The only change I made was using Guldens Spicy Mustard instead of Dijon. While the steaks were grilling, I sliced some onions and opened a can of mushrooms and sauteed them with a little butter until they started to brown, then added the remainder of the marinade and cooked until most of the liquid was gone and served that on top of my steaks. I also used a bit of mesquite chips on the charcoal and let them smoke while grilling. Incredible flavor. If you have been using a gas grill for a while, you might want to try charcoal again. I think the extra work is worth the extra flavor charcoal gives.

German Pancakes II

Reviewed: Jun. 15, 2011
I followed some others suggestions and added a teaspoon each of cinnamon and vanilla, a pinch of nutmeg and 3 T sugar. Baked in a well seasoned, preheated cast iron skillet at 450 for 20 min. It came out of the oven HUGE, but then fell. Squeezed the juice of 1 lemon on top and sprinkled with powdered sugar. Did not need anything else. It was wonderful and my wife loved it, too.

Brown Sugar Smokies

Reviewed: Feb. 8, 2011
I made these for Super Bowl 45. They were a great hit. They take some time to make, but they were worth it. I also used the "Bacon wrapped brown sugar smokies dipping sauce" from this site. Winning combination.

Coconut Cream Pie

Reviewed: Feb. 8, 2011
This was my first attempt at a cream pie. I found the recipe easy to follow and my first cream pie was a roaring success. I did make one change. I used Splenda, instead of sugar and it was still great. Will definitly make this one again.

Sweet and Savory Slow Cooker Pulled Pork

Reviewed: Feb. 8, 2011
This recipe had a lot of steps and a lot of work compared to similar recipes I have used. It was OK, but nothing special. I found it way too sweet for my tastes.

Libby's® Famous Pumpkin Pie

Reviewed: Nov. 26, 2010
I followed the recipe exactly, except at the end of the baking time, I turned off the gas and let it cool in the oven. Your pie will not crack that way. There may be better recipes out there for pumpkin pie, but I haven't found one yet. Its easy to make and tastes wonderful just as written. 348 other cooks agree.

Terry's Texas Pinto Beans

Reviewed: Oct. 25, 2010
These were the best beans I have ever had. I grew up in the Chicago Region and we had beans and corn bread often, but used Great Northern beans. This is the first time I used pintos and will not go back to Great Northerns. As an added bonus, I am diabetic and my sugars were actually on the low side of normal the following morning after eating 2 bowls of beans and corn bread. Maybe I have discovered a new treatment for diabetes.

Sukiyaki

Reviewed: Dec. 22, 2009
Real sukiyaki or not, it was delicious. The only changes I made were to use a small can of bamboo shoots and added a can of baby corn. I also used alittle more corn starch for a thicker sauce and served it over chow mein noodles. My wife loved it.
