Corny, Sweet and Moist Corn Bread

Reviewed: Nov. 12, 2013
I made this to go with a new chili recipe. We usually don't make our cornbread sweet, but we do eat it with butter and honey, but I was making a spicy dish to go with it, so I wanted to try this one. That said, I couldn't bring myself to add 1/2 cup of sugar, so I did cut that in half. I also used my own corn I had frozen off the cob, uncooked and it was crisp and perfectly done. I baked it in my cast iron and tossed it under the broiler to brown up the top, once it was done. Very good and easy recipe, as corn bread should be! :)

Savory Cheesy Polenta

Reviewed: Nov. 4, 2013
I asked in the Buzz for something to serve with a smoked paprika shrimp and sassyoldlady suggested this. WOW, was it perfect! I doubled the recipes and used 4 Vidalias, which gave me about 5 1/2 cups of onions, and didn't think I needed more. I did add salt to the polenta, used stone ground cornmeal, and used an olive oil/butter mix. I also upped the cheese a bit, and used pepper jack. I usually use stock to cook grits, but water was fine in this since the onions added so much flavor. Thank you, BigShotsMom!

Slow Cooker Philly Steak Sandwich Meat

Reviewed: Nov. 2, 2013
Tasty tasty and easy! :-) My sirloin was about 3lbs and I quadrupled most of the rest of the ingredients. I omitted the soy sauce and added a lot more hot sauce, and I don't use the bouillon cubes, but I replaced with beef base. This made the house smell GREAT as it cooked, and it tasted wonderful. Used Muenster cheese. Oh, and I did just add the new sliced peppers to the meat in the last hour of cooking and that worked well. They were softened but not disappearing. The only thing I will caution is that if you leave this go too long, the pretty slices will end up self shredding..doesn't change the taste, just not as pretty or as "philly steak" looking. :-) Thanks, Scooby!

Grandma Rita's Soft Butter Rolls

Reviewed: Oct. 29, 2013
Due to unforeseen circumstances, I had to make these rolls up to the point of shaping the rolls, then I had to postpone baking. So, I covered 'em and put 'em in the fridge. Next day, I took 'em out about 3pm let 'em rise for 3 hours then baked 'em. They did great! The recipe is delicious and, apparently, it's pretty forgiving. :) Thanks, Lela!

Super soft potato rolls

Reviewed: Oct. 21, 2013
These were delicious. :) I was looking for a dinner roll recipe on the Buzz and just happened to have left over taters, so this one got made, first! :) I did use butter, rather than shortening and did follow my usual bread prep: mircowaved the butter and water until the butter melted(this gets the water the right temp, for me), then added that to the yeast and sugar, then added the taters and then the flour and salt. Let it rise about an hour, both times and once they were baked, I rubbed the tops with a cold pat of butter to get the glistening flavorful tops. :) Oh, and this made 15 rolls for me. :) Thanks Icee!

Roast Beef cooked in Pasta Sauce The Italian Way.

Reviewed: Oct. 10, 2013
This was fabulous! Gives a whole new meaning to "meat sauce" ;) I used 3lbs total of chuck roasts and a pound of spaghetti and this was perfect for us. Tender as can be and full of flavor. Thanks, manella! :)

Antipasto Salad

Reviewed: Oct. 10, 2013
VERY happy with this mess up! :) I used a sweet onion and I added a few green olives and roasted red pepper, too. I cut up my own fresh tomatoes, so some halved cherry tomatoes made it in. :) I also used fresh Mozzarella "beads". I made everything up a day ahead, tossed together the meats, cheese and veggies and refrigerated them together. Then, for lunch, I combined it all with the chopped lettuce and dressed it with my own balsamic vinaigrette and tossed it, again. DELICIOUS! :) Thanks, semi, for a nice lunch.

Spinach Cheese Ball

Reviewed: Oct. 9, 2013
Okay, #1.... this is delicious! :-) #2 in case anyone's interested in using fresh spinach and bacon, here's how I did it!! First, I cooked the chopped bacon until crisp, removed it to drain and then just added the spinach to the pan(heat off) and tossed it to slightly wilt it. Worked perfectly! Them, added that to the cream cheese and jack(I used pepperjack) cheese. I don't have onion powder, so I powdered up some dry minced and I did use onion powder, as directed. I upp'd the Tabasco. My bacon was black pepper and as you can see, I saved some back and rolled the formed cheeseball in the reserve. Beautiful and tasted fantastic. Everyone devoured it over football. :)

Pasilla Honey Lime Braised Pork Tenderloin

Reviewed: Oct. 2, 2013
Lemme start by saying I saved this on title alone and didn't realize it was for a specific cooking sauce. :) I don't have that, so, I did a lil research and found the ingredients and decided to wing my own. Here's what I added: ground pasilla pepper(which I love and is why I saved the recipe in the first place ;), spicy tomato sauce, a lil vinegar, some grated onion and I upped the garlic a lil. Roasted these on a cooling rack over a cookie sheet and basted at the end, then served with the reduced sauce, as instructed. We eat our pork at about 150 degrees, so this only took about 20 minutes. We loved this. I served it with chipotle mashed taters. Thank you, BigShotsMom! :)

Five Spice Noodle Soup

Reviewed: Sep. 30, 2013
This was a wonderful, quick and easy lunch! :) I used broccoli slaw rather than cabbage and snap peas instead of green. I omitted the soy sauce for personal preference, and I left out the optional chicken mentioned in the recipe description, too. :) Thank you, Linda! This will be made, again! :)

Mom's Liverpaste

Reviewed: Sep. 30, 2013
This was delicious! :) I don't have chicken granuls so I used chicken base. I also didn't have any celery, so for the heck of it, I added a mild banana pepper and left everything else the same. SO good! :) I blended the devil out of it, I wanted it smooth and we had it on oven toasted bread, rather than crackers. Thanks, Lori's mama! ;)

West Coast Trail Cookies

Reviewed: Sep. 26, 2013
Delicious! :) After talking with westcoastmom, I changed this up slightly just by using pine nuts in place of the sunflower seeds and white chocolate chips in place of the milk/semi sweet. I used raw sugar instead of white and I didn't press them down, at all. Wonderful texture and flavor. :)

Individual Greek Pita Pizzas

Reviewed: Sep. 23, 2013
This was very good! The dressing is tart and fresh and went very well with all the ingredients. I used jalapeno stuffed green olives and I added a roasted red pepper. I also used fresh herbs in the dressing and a cut up tomato from my garden. Thanks for a nice lunch, Lela! :)

Vegetarian Egg Rolls

Reviewed: Sep. 19, 2013
These were very good. My review didn't save, so I'm leaving it, again. :) I added water chestnuts and used some of the water from those as the water in the recipe and we don't care for straight soy sauce so I subbed oyster sauce. I also added heaping T of chicken base just to boost the flavor for my meat lovers. ;) It made 16 rolls for me, stuffed full! :) I just used water rather than the egg yolks for the sealing, too.

QUICK AND EASY LEMON LOAF

Reviewed: Sep. 18, 2013
This was so fresh, light and delicious! :) I used raw sugar and butter and I did add the zest of a full lemon to the batter. I added some yellow coloring because I wanted to bake it in my flower pan so I wanted it to have some color. :) For the glaze, I used powdered sugar rather than granulated and I drizzled it over the slices before serving it for a light sweet dessert after lunch. Thank you manella!

Spidini

Reviewed: Sep. 15, 2013
These were delicious. I made my own seasoned breadcrumbs and used Panko. I also deglazed with a tiny bit of wine before I sauteed the garlic cus all those yummy browning bits were begging for it! ;) I did add some onion with the garlic and I used more than 2T cream. I served this with my balsamic garlic asparagus and whipped up some quick flatbreads to soak up all the yumminess.

Chile Rellenos Casserole with Ranchero Sauce

Reviewed: Sep. 11, 2013
This was delicious. The best chile rellenos I've ever had was a lil inside out. It was a lovely poblano with a fine mince pork inside served open faced and topped with cheese and seasoned panko then stuck under a broiler or salamander, something, and it was fabulous! So, for that reason and because I'm feeding hungry meat and potatoes cowboys, I added double minced venison that I cooked with hot tomato sauce and some grated onion and a lil Latin seasoning. I used my own roasted chilies and I used pepper jack cheese. I layered it this way: egg mixture, chilies, meat, cheese, peppers egg mixture and cheese over the top, too. It set up beautifully and the sauce was a wonderful addition. I didn't have California chili pepper so I used ancho and I used half and half instead of evaporated milk. Easy, filling tasty dish! :)

Spicy Pretzels

Reviewed: Sep. 8, 2013
Made these for football. They were certainly better than the game. ;) I didn't have the popcorn oil, so here's what I did. I used 2 bags of the game day pretzels, homemade equivalent to the ranch mix, the garlic and cumin as directed and extra smoke, 1t of cumin and dry minced onion instead of the powder. For the "oil", I melted 1/2 stick of butter, used 1/4 cup of chili infused olive oil and 1/4 cup regular olive oil. So, I ended up with only 1/2 the amount of oil but it worked for me. I added a dash of dry mustard, some black pepper and I doubled the cayenne. Very nice snack! Thanks, Scooby!

Basil Bacon over Angel Hair

Reviewed: Sep. 4, 2013
This was delicious. I doubled the amount of pasta and actually tripled the rest of the ingredients(except the bacon and Parmesan) and I added just 3 cups of left over chicken. I used fresh tomatoes and fresh basil and this was wonderful for both! A great way to use up some surplus. :) I served this with my own Garlic Parmesan Flatbread and a green salad with cherry tomatoes, fresh mozzarella and my own Basil Vinaigrette. Thank you, Scooby!
