Jay's Hearty Breakfast Skillet

Reviewed: May 23, 2006
Great recipe. Enough for 6-8. I saved time by microwaving the potatoes. Browned them in the pan AFTER pouring out excess bacon grease. Added a tablespoon of garlic with the vegetables (you can never have enough garlic!). After adding the bacon to the cooked vegetables, I poured eight beaten eggs over the top, covered and cooked on medium-low about 10 minutes until almost firm. Then I topped with sliced tomatoes and grated cheese, and continued to cook, uncovered, until the cheese was melted. Had enough leftovers to serve the next day rolled up in flour tortillas!

Pollo Mediterranean

Reviewed: Sep. 19, 2009
Lovely. Having no sour cream in the fridge, I substituted half and half. Also, I increased the sauce a bit because I served over bowtie pasta and, well, let's face it ~ you can never have enough sauce! I might ease back a tad on the salt next bime but my husband thought it was perfect as is. This tasted like something you would get in a fine resturant, but was so simple and made with ingredients I had on hand. Does life get better than this!?!

Easy No Bake Cookies

Reviewed: Jul. 8, 2006
I found this recipe on a day when it was 100 degrees and our air conditioner was broken - "no bake" seemed like a good idea, and it was! Like others, I decreased the sugar to 1 cup and boiled the mixture for 3 minutes. Also, I store them in the refrigerator - they are very refreshing that way. I've made them with chocolate, butterscotch, lemon and pistachio pudding. All were great, but the pistachio were a green/gray color - next time I'll add green food color.

Most Excellent Sandwich

Reviewed: Oct. 17, 2006
A most excellent sandwich indeed! After being on the road for several days of pizza and burgers, I wanted something healthy and simple. One bite and my digestive system sighed in relief! I followed the recipe exactly,pulling it out of the oven after 7 minutes (I was hungry). Simplicity at its best!

Eastern North Carolina Barbeque Sauce

Reviewed: Feb. 2, 2007
Wow! Just like the barbeque we'd get when we'd visit my nana and grandaddy in Wilmington... I was afraid it would be too spicey, but no, it was perfect. Thank you so much!!!

Dirt Cake II

Reviewed: Oct. 3, 2006
This is a great fun dessert. It may not be the greatest culinary delight of your life, but it will earn you giggles from everyone. Make the night before so it is good and cold. I put the worms in before sprinkling the crumbs on top so it looked more like they were burrowing. I made this to delight the kids - the fact that it tastes great is an added bonus!!!

Moist Banana Raisin Bread

Reviewed: Jul. 23, 2006
What a great recipe! A good use of that last, lonely banana.... Instead of adding peanuts, I just used cruchy peanut butter. The first time I made this bread, I used raisins. Very good. The second time, I substituted chocolate chips. A whole new experience! Kinda like peanut butter chocolate chip cookies, only better for you.

Pork Chops with Cranberry Balsamic Sauce

Reviewed: Nov. 5, 2009
This was great! Love recipes that call for ingrediants that I have or can substitute easily with what is on hand. I had a boneless pork loin that I sliced into chops. No lemon pepper so I seasoned with Montery Chicken Seasoning. Boullon instead of stock. Used the dried cherries and berries mix I recently bought at Sam's Club. Served over rice. Everyone liked this, even the 16-year-old male child!

Mexican Bean Stew

Reviewed: Aug. 19, 2008
Very nice. I made this while a hurricane was knocking on our door. Cheated by substituting two 15oz cans of black beans and 1 can of Garbanzo, and adding 1.5 cups of chicken broth. Didn't have corn on hand so skipped it. The cinnamon added a lovely layer of flavor. The cayenne added an essential edge. A dollop of sour cream might have been nice, but did I mention the hurricane....

Chuck's Come On Ice Cream (or Night of the Red Death) Chili

Reviewed: Oct. 20, 2006
We love chili and we love this recipe. It has enough ingredients that you can leave some out, substitute others or add something different and still have a great meal!

Chicken Fajita Pizza

Reviewed: Feb. 19, 2007
Excellent! If you like fajitas, you will enjoy this. The only changes I made were mostly in quantity: I used extra salsa, cut the chicken in bite-size pieces, used a whole onion and pepper, and added some Mexican-blend cheese.

Parmesan Focaccia Bread

Reviewed: Oct. 17, 2006
Very good, simple bread, especially for base of sandwich (Chicken Pesto Paninis comes to mind!). Didn't use lecithin. Made one 9" loaf. Oh, didn't sprinkle with parmesan since the pesto had plenty in it.

Baked Chicken and Zucchini

Reviewed: May 20, 2013
Worked great as a last minute meal. A few changes to make it work with what I had on hand. Limited time so did everything in my black skillet, seasoning everything with Montery Chicken seasoning and grated parmesan cheese as I went: Cut up the chicken in bite-size pieces, stir fired it in oil and garlic without flouring (I'm going low carbs). Removed from pan then carmelized the onions in more oil and garlic. Added zucchini, browned, added a red bell pepper. Added back the chicken and then cherry tomatoes, warming and serving.

Hot Fudge Ice Cream Bar Dessert

Reviewed: Jul. 8, 2006
Wow! This is ridiculously simple and delicious. Rave reviews from all my guests. I used Jiffy extra-crunchy peanut butter and omitted the peanuts. 24 Publix brand ice cream sandwiches fitted my pan perfectly. Make sure you use a deep lasagna pan and place it on a cookie sheet to catch any drips. STRONGLY recommend freezing over night.

Roasted Pork Loin

Reviewed: Jan. 4, 2012
Very good and simple. Used fresh rosemary. FYI unlike most herbs, fresh rosemary is very strong and so you use less than what is called for dry. I threw in some carrots, potatoes and onions into the covered pot as well, coating it with the same oil mix. The wine sauce at the end really was that extra special touch that made this dish stand out. I think that next time I'll add the wine to the pot and let it cook in it the whole time.

No Beans About It - Chili

Reviewed: Dec. 1, 2011
5 stars for taste and simplicity! After 28 years of marriage, I just found out my husband doesn't like beans in his chili! Who knew? Not me! I found this recipe and it was a hit all around. Perfect blend of sweet and spicy. I used ground pork, and instead of red wine vinegar, substituted 1/8 cup each balsamic vinegar and Worcester sauce. Served with cheese and sour cream.

Stuffed Pork Chops with Gorgonzola and Apple

Reviewed: Sep. 19, 2009
Superb! Would do the finest resturant well. Used thick-cut boneless loin chops from Sam's Club. Based on recommendations, I used one medium sized apple per chop, added finely chopped walnuts to stuffing with a splash of balsamic vinegar, and browned chops in a pan before baking. I used the same pan for the sauce, giving it a lovely color. Only had white wine, no sherry, but it was just fine. Added leftover stuffing to sauce in the last minute. Served with mashed pototoes to soak up the lovely sauce.

Turkey Avocado Sandwiches

Reviewed: Jul. 4, 2008
This was lovely. Like others, I substituted the salsa I had on hand for the taco sauce. Also, I used a 95% avocado guacamole spread instead of the sliced avocados - less expensive and easy to spread on the bread. I concur that this would be wonderful as a wrap. The whole family loved it and agreed that it would make a nice lunch with guests.

EAGLE BRAND® Peanut Butter Fudge

Reviewed: Nov. 23, 2011
Quick, easy and delicous, made with ingredients on hand. How perfect is that? Made with chunky peanut butter (didn't measure, between 1/2 and 1 cup) and chocolate chips instead of white chocolate. Next time I'll pour into a 9x4 loaf pan for a thicker final product.
