Chicken Fried Chicken

Reviewed: Dec. 5, 2011
My husband and i forgot to even talk while eating this meal! The recipe is perfect, I used a whole sleeve of saltines and ground them up to a fine crumb, added the flour, potato flakes seasoned salt and pepper as stated. I pounded out the chicken pieces dusted them with the crumb mix, dipped them in egg and then coated them in the same crumb mix. This is the only way to get a great crispy coating that sticks! I ended up frying them on each side about 4/5 minutes, drained them on paper towels and finished the fried chicken pieces up in the oven (350 for about 20 mins). Better than the restaurants!

Roasted Turkey and Pan Gravy

Reviewed: Dec. 13, 2010
This is a basic tried and true turkey and pan gravy recipe. Anyone who cooks often knows that everything needs to be seasoned according to you or your families tastes. Salt and pepper are the most UNDER USED seasonings.

Sugar Cookie Glaze

Reviewed: Nov. 12, 2008
Yum..Yum!! This is great...I usually make a confecitoners sugar and milk frosting for my sugar cookies but I was looking for something shiny and new this time and the corn syrup does the trick. I do not like a thin frosting/glazes so the only change I made was to add 1 1/2 cups confectioners sugar (instead of just one) to make it thicker..if it is to thick you just add a sprinkle of water and..perfecto! Threw the frosting in a baggie, cut off the tip and swirled it on...I ended up with a perfectly thick, shiny and very easily spreadable frosting...will always use this recipe from now on!! oh yeah I used a food coloring paste for a brighter color, and corn syrup with vanilla in it.

Easy Cajun Jambalaya

Reviewed: Jan. 24, 2008
Great recipe. I only changed a few things. I used soysage (yummy for vegetarians and no chicken. I also have small children who don't like anything spicy so I ommitted the cayenne and hot pepper sauce. I had no celery either. Even omitting and changing half the ingredients in this recipe it still turned out so delish. This is great no matter what you use!! I served it with homeade cornbread from this site. Will make again!!!!

Apple Pie by Grandma Ople

Reviewed: Jan. 3, 2008
Ummmmm...WOW. I have never made apple pie before. I am more of a main dish chef than a pastry chef, but wow how easy is this pie to make. I did throw in a few changes however. I used a mix of three granny smith apples and three braeburn apples. While making the sauce I melted the stick of butter and put in about 5 tbsp. of flour in stead of just three b/c some other had said it was way to runny. then added the full 1/4 cup of water plus an extra 1/8 cup to compensate for the extra flour. I added professional strength clear vanilla (all I had and it is a stronger vanilla flavor)a dash of nutmeg and a couple dashes of cinnamon (per other reviews)I made it a nice consitency with the help of just a bit more water. Did as the others and poured 1/2 over the apples and mixed it up. Piled them in the crust laid over a lattice crust topping and poured the rest over. So great. Grandma Ople's pie scored the highest marks with my family. Will make again and again and again and again!!!!!

Eggplant Parmesan II

Reviewed: Jan. 3, 2008
This is a great recipe however I did modify it a bit to make cooking simpler. Please please sweat your eggplant for 30 minutes with salt ( takes away the wang that you can get form store bought eggplants sometimes) Instead of a 9x13 pan I used two baking sheets and laid out my breaded eggplant and cooked for about 7 minutes on each side. Then I simply layered sauce on top sprinkled with parmesan and mozarella and cooked for 25 minutes. If you slice your eggplant about a 1/4 inch thick you will only need about 25 minutes in an oven that cooks well. I served this amazing dish over buttered whole wheat spaghetti noodles with my homeade sweet sicilian sauce. Delish!!!!! As a new vegetarian I am looking for some good dishes so my family doesn't say "hey where's the meat"

Cheater Pancake Syrup

Reviewed: Oct. 22, 2007
Don't kid yourself! If you enjoy pure sugar then you will probably like this recipe....of course since it is so so so so so sweet my four year old though he was eating candy. Even though it tasted fine we probably would have been better dumping sugar on his waffles.
