Best Carolina BBQ Meat Sauce

Reviewed: Jul. 4, 2008
Holy Toledo! This is an awesome sauce. We got rave reviews and incredulous looks that we'd made this ourselves. The sauce needs to mellow, so make sure to give it at least 24 hours for the flavors to blend. For pulled pork: use pork shoulder/butt, cook with indirect heat/smoke on a grill 9-12 hours keeping grill temperature around 250-300 degrees (low and slow!!). For best flavor, use wood chips. Internal meat temperature should be 180-190 degrees when done. Let the meat cool a bit, then pull apart with two forks or with your hands. Put some sauce on the meat and let it 'marinate' - good right away, but even better overnight. When ready to serve, heat the meat back up in a crock pot, further melding the flavors and set the rest of the sauce on the side as a condiment. This is great party fare, because all the work is done the day before. Day of, you just heat it up.

Broiled Tilapia Parmesan

Reviewed: Jul. 12, 2008
Flavorful, fast, low cal, cheap, and easy - an all around winner. Yummy enough to serve company. Fast and easy to make - can easily prep the sauce in advance and throw the fish under the broiler shortly before serving. If you line the pan with tin foil brushed with olive oil - clean up is a snap. Even with regular mayo and regular parmesan, still low in calories. Tilapia and the other ingredients are pretty inexpensive (except for the cheese but you only use a little). I didn't have celery salt - just used plain and didn't miss it one bit. Otherwise followed directions to a T.

French Toast Bake

Reviewed: Oct. 5, 2008
Oh so yummy. I prefer raspberries for a bit of tart, though blueberries were ok too. This makes an excellent brunch recipe because you can prep the night before. I use 16 slices of 1" bread, which over night fills the baking dish perfectly. Otherwise follow directions exactly.

Slow Cooker Roast Beef

Reviewed: Sep. 22, 2013
So easy. Low sodium soy sauce is the trick. Use Chip and Dip seasoning (Penzy) in place of onion soup to avoid MSG. Making gravy wth corn sauce and drippings is super easy and delish. Start at 10 a.m., put on low in slow cooker, done at 6:00 p.m. Great for weekend when you are out having fun all day and come home starving but too exhausted to cook. Microwave some peas, butter some bread and dig into the roast. The perfect ending to a great day out.

Brazilian Black Bean Stew

Reviewed: Feb. 21, 2009
Fun, fresh flavors! The stew is good until you add the mango / cilantro -- then it's awesome! I would double the mango / cilantro. Put in 1 deseeded jalapeno and it wasn't spicy in the least. Guests loved it. I can't believe this is healthy. Also, makes more like 10-12 servings and prep time about 1 hour for chopping. Pair with simple spinach salad, sour dough or Italian bread, and light, fruity white wine. Attractive dinner party meal.

Guinness® Corned Beef

Reviewed: Feb. 21, 2009
Wonderful! Add 3-4 carrots, 2 potatoes, an onion, and additional Guiness. Very tasty, all-in-one meal. Cook in slow cooker all day and don't forget to put in spice packet.

Chicken Pot Pie IX

Reviewed: Feb. 21, 2009
Wow. Excellent. My personalizations... Cut peas to 1/2 c. and add 1/2 c. corn. Reduce celery to 1/3 c. Dice 1 potato and boil with vegs in swanson chicken broth, then reuse broth later in recipe. Can make with Pillsbury pie crusts, but also great with puff pastry. Remember to mix veg and sauce in bowl before filling pie, otherwise sauce too thick to get down to bottom. No extra sauce needed.

Sugar Cookies

Reviewed: May 2, 2009
I was looking for a crisp, crumbly sugar cookie. I'm not sure if this it, but they are delicious! We haven't been able to wait until the cookies are fully cooled - maybe they'll crisp up later. If they don't, we still adore this buttery, sugary recipe.

Pecan Pie Bars I

Reviewed: Dec. 22, 2009
Fantastic! Pecan pie flavor without being overwhelmingly sweet, as crust to filling ratio is about 50-50. Hint: don't bake in stoneware as sides will overcook.

Dora's Christmas Cookies

Reviewed: Jan. 9, 2011
Awesome!!!! This is the one!!! It's that true traditional Christmas cookie flavor with both almond and vanilla extract. Usually, it's hard to find a cut out cookie where the cookie and frosting combo don't create a complete sugar overload. Use these cookies with the Decorator Frosting on this site for the right balance of sweet and savory!!! Also, either roll them out thin or bake longer, as the resulting crunchiness is delicious.

Decorator Frosting

Reviewed: Jan. 9, 2011
Frosting is sweet, but not sickening so like many others. Works great for decorating cut out cookies. I use with Dora's Christmas Cookies, which with almond extract provide a savory counterpoint to the frosting. (Don't worry. It's still plenty sweet!) I suggest doubling the Decorator Frosting to use with one batch of Dora's recipe.

Royal Icing III

Reviewed: Dec. 22, 2011
12-2011. This royal icing recipe has been the best I've tried over the years. Each Christmas, the kids decorate a gingerbread house, but the tricky part has been making the walls stick to each other. This icing is really thick and gooey, and the walls went up easily!

Zippy Barbecue Sauce

Reviewed: Dec. 27, 2011
Tasty. Bottled BBQ sauce usually has smoke flavoring, which is a no-no for people allergic to MSG. I forgot Worcestershire, but it turned out well anyway. To give smokiness I subbed chipotle pepper.

White Bean Chicken Chili

Reviewed: Dec. 27, 2011
Update: We smoke turkey for Thanksgiving. We dice the leftover turkey to add to this chili. We then put the turkey carcass and skin in a big pot, cover it with water, and boil over night. The next morning, we have wonderful smoky turkey broth to use in this chili. This makes this great recipe even better! --- Great for using up Thanksgiving turkey. I subbed green tomatoes for the tomatillos since I don't have any (but better with them or salsa verde). You can boil the turkey carcass for a few hours to make the broth, too.

Make-Ahead Marsala Turkey Gravy

Reviewed: Dec. 18, 2012
Gravy with NO MSG!!! This makes me so happy because store bought broth or buillon contains MSG, but this recipe is super yummy and doesn't call for any of the bad stuff. I cut up the heart of the turkey. Also, if you're short on turkey necks, a chicken thigh and leg are a great substitute.

Witches' Brew

Reviewed: Dec. 29, 2012
Kids loved it! Fingers a little fragile and broke some off. I threw them in the punch and kids thought severed fingers were creepy. Punch was "potion" of half ginger ale and half apple juice.
