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!

Gramma's Apple Bread Pudding

Reviewed: Dec. 2, 2008
This was lovely. I made it for dessert while visiting family for the holidays. My sister-in-law's grandmother kept grousing, "I've never heard of applies in bread pudding. Who puts apples in bread pudding." Joy..... Well, even she begrudgingly admitted it was ok. Everyone else loved it. Like others, I simply used cinnamon raisin bread and didn't bother with the sauce. Try this recipe on a cold day. You'll love it.

Shrimp and Mushroom Linguini with Creamy Cheese Herb Sauce

Reviewed: Mar. 10, 2007
Wow! Simple and simply delicious. I had raw shrimp, so sauted them with the mushrooms. Taking a queue from others, used 6 oz of cream cheese, 1/4 cup butter and substituted milk for water. Make this dish - you won't be disappointed!

Crab Quiche I

Reviewed: Oct. 20, 2006
I've made quiche quite often and was hesitant to try this - it didn't seem to have enough eggs or fat content (where's the cream?). However I followed the recipe exactly and was delighted! I think I will use this as the base for future quiches.

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!

Paella I

Reviewed: Oct. 3, 2006
I have to admit that I've never had paella, but we thought this was very good. Couldn't find the rice called for so used long grain white rice - took about 40 minutes to soften. Used canned clams, no squid, extra chicken, no mussels. Served 8 easily.

Key Lime Pie VII

Reviewed: Aug. 12, 2013
All I can say is, "WOW!" I live in Florida, have been making Key Lime Pie all my life using the "traditional" recipe: key lime juice, 1 can of condensed milk, and 3 egg yolks. It is a good, simple recipe, but the pie crust is only 2/3 filled, and I'm left with 3 egg whites that I am usually guilted into turning into a meringue topping. This recipe is, well, SUPERIOR! The flavor is delightful, it sets up quickly, and the pie shell is filled almost to overflowing! I used 2 cans of condensed milk and cooked for about 10 minutes. This will be the recipe I use from now on. THANK YOU!

White Cheese Chicken Lasagna

Reviewed: Jun. 11, 2013
This was a hit with everyone, and especially for my friend who cannot eat tomatoes and therefore doesn't get to enjoy lasagna. The only changes I made were to use fresh spinach and, rather than make one in a 9x13 pan, I divided the recipe into three loaf pans, freezing two for later. Will most certainly be making this again. :)

RWOP Finalist: Mounds of Joy Whipped Pie

Reviewed: Feb. 27, 2013
Oh gosh, this was a hit, both in appearance and taste! Rather than using chocolate ice cream topping, I made a simple ganache by pouring 1 cup of simmering cream over 1 cup of chocolate chips, stirring until smooth, and cooling in refrigerator. I like Almond Joys, so between each layer, I poured not only the chocolate ganache, but some chopped almonds and some of the toasted coconut. I topped the whole thing with more chocolate, almonds and coconut as well (I've posted a photo). It was delicious, but even better the next day, served frozen. I think that next time, however, I will make this in a 9x13 pan - the pie was mile-high and difficult to slice in small enough pieces as it is extremely rich. We got 12 slices out of the pie; I'm sure that we would get 16 out of a 9x13 pan.

Chocolate Velvet Ice Cream

Reviewed: Jul. 15, 2012
Super! Used half and half instead of heavy cream; didn't seem to detract from the flavor at all. Chopped up Butterfingers instead of chocolate chips. This recipe will clearly stand on its own or support any additions (I'm going to add chopped brownies next time!)

Chunky Cheesecake Brownies

Reviewed: Feb. 23, 2012
Very good. I think I'll add a little vanilla to the cream cheese next time.

Fennel Pork Chops

Reviewed: Jan. 24, 2012
A hit with my family. A while after dinner, my husband looked up and reiterated, "I really liked that. I'd like to have that again." Wow! My son said, "Is there any more?" Of course, he's 18 and is always hungry! lol Took the lid off at the end and let the wine boil almost all the way so I had a thicker sauce to put on the pork.

Balsamic Roasted Pork Loin

Reviewed: Jan. 6, 2012
And the crowd goes wild! Everyone loved this. I used Montreal Steak Seasoning. When it was time to put it in the pan, I added sweet potatoes, carrots and onions, coating them in the marinade as well. When the pork was done, I put it on a plate, boosted the oven up to 450, and let the vegetables cook a while the port rested 10 minutes. A wonderful meal!

Double Tomato Bruschetta

If you love bruschetta (and we do), you'll love this. And it makes lots! The leftovers were great even a couple of days later.

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 Riggies II

Reviewed: Oct. 5, 2006
Having never heard of Chicken Riggies, I tried this recipe on faith. Outstanding! I followed it exactly (okay, I don't actually measure anything, but still...). There was more sauce than I expected, so I served it up in a bowl with a spoon. When I commented that I thought I would use less liquid next time, my husband said he liked it the way it was!

J.P.'s Big Daddy Biscuits

Reviewed: Sep. 3, 2006
We really enjoy these. I find 1 cup of milk to be too much - start with 3/4 cup and add more as needed. I get 4 - 6 biscuits out of this recipe.

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.
