Bill's Blue Cheese Dressing

Reviewed: Sep. 13, 2006
This past Saturday I went to the downtown Farmer's Market & purchased some fresh Maytag blue cheese (from Newton, IA) -- & my husband says "If you're going to make it fresh, this is the only way to go." It's so popular, most grocers carry the name brand. Great blue cheese comes from happy-grazing Iowa cows!.

Breaded Brussels Sprouts

Reviewed: Sep. 8, 2006
Reading reviews prior to making recipes ALWAYS pays off big dividends. ATOMICLUSH really cracked me up -- I'm a big brussels sprouts fan! I steamed my sprouts (just personal preference); & used Italian bread crumbs w/cayenne pepper for a different twist. Have ready on your tableservice some lemon juice. Try this one!

Butternut Squash Casserole

Reviewed: Sep. 8, 2006
Four stars since I managed to get my "picky & fussy" grand-daughter to eat this; however, I found it to be on the sweet side for my liking. Tip: To reserve nutrients from squash, microwave cubes of squash in a covered bowl with a smidgeon of water -- also better flavor.

Beans-n-Franks

Reviewed: Aug. 31, 2006
I made a similar dish to this when my girls were small children -- the difference was added do-dahs; barbecue sauce, Worcestershire, bacon, shredded Cheddar cheese) you get the idea. They sometimes wanted this poured over toasted hot dog buns...

Chocolate Martini a la Laren

Reviewed: Aug. 24, 2006
Gave this four stars, since I added my own flair -- 1 fluid oz. butterscotch schnapps, 1 tsp. chocolate syrup, a little more vodka & garnish also with 1 slice banana & maraschino cherry. Watch out for this one!

Paradise Smoothie

Reviewed: Aug. 24, 2006
I just love, love, love this! After seeing the posted picture, I decided to add to each serving glass a sprinkle of ground cinnamon on top, a purple jackmani clemantis bloom & paper umbrella. Very festive for a refreshing change!

Horchata (Cinnamon Rice Milk)

Reviewed: Aug. 24, 2006
After reading the reviews, I made LatinaCook's recipe instead. The only variation I made was to add a touch of almond extract. Nice drink for a change of pace...

Hot Spiced Cranberry Cider

Reviewed: Aug. 18, 2006
Last Thanksgiving I made this cider in a crockpot -- I made in advance the orange slices studded w/the whole cloves. Stored them in a plastic resealable bag until the cider was warmed up, then added on top to float. With the cinnamon sticks, I wrap them up in cheesecloth. This way it's easier to remove, & not as many granules in your cider. My two oldest grandsons kept going back for more & more; between the 2 of them they finished up the whole pot!

Dill Pickles

Reviewed: Aug. 2, 2006
I agree with Sharon, skip the hot water bath; for crispier pickles they should cure under refrigeration. I'm going to try adding some peppercorns to each of the 8 jars for more kick!

Chocolate Pecan Pie III

Reviewed: Jul. 28, 2006
You may think this sounds crazy, but try adding a little Bourbon Whiskey on top of the pecans prior to baking. The alccohol potency will dissipate after baking, but adds just the right amount of flavour!

Thick Chocolate Shake

Reviewed: Jul. 28, 2006
My grandkids loved this for a Pajama Party sleepover; used BunnyTracks ice cream instead of vanilla -- & I added more milk, since I had a banana that needed to be used up! Paired up with a movie, popcorn, & pizza. They were Happy Campers...

Jay's Signature Pizza Crust

Reviewed: Jul. 28, 2006
Good instructions, Jay. I made this crust using King Wheat flour, instead of all-purpose. I sprinkled cornmeal & cracked black pepper on my peel. Have some fun practicing with the dough tossing!

Pickled Eggs

Reviewed: Jul. 26, 2006
This is a great recipe I've been making for years & years. The son-in-law always wants a couple jars all to himself! The only difference I have is I add a couple of whole pepperoncinis (or jalapeno peppers) in the bottom of the container 1st. Let the container sit in the refrigerator for the full 5 days to kick up the heat...

Italian Grilled Cheese Sandwiches

Reviewed: Jul. 20, 2006
After reviewing other grilled cheese sandwiches, I used this as a base & added to some dried basil along w/the oregano; I bumped up the cheese filling by mixing the mozzarella cheese w/cream cheese & mayo. I blended into the mix 2 serrano peppers, seeded & chopped. I had on hand some premade frozen garlic Texas toast, which turned out easy! Served with a variety of olives as garnish on a salad-size plate, which I sprinkled w/chopped flat leaf parsley & cracked peppercorns.

Sloppy Joes I

Reviewed: Jul. 18, 2006
This is a version of my classic recipe. I dice-up a small onion & brown it together w/1lb. lean ground beef. Drain off any excess fat. Add 1/2tsp. salt, 1/4tsp. ground black pepper, 4T. catsup, 1tsp. wet or dry mustard, 1 can condensed Chicken Gumbo soup & 1/4c. water. You simmer without a lid for about 20min. Another variation is to use 1can vegetable soup & 1/4c. catsup, instead of the Chicken Gumbo soup. Make certain you let this thicken up!

Slow Cooker Chicken and Dumplings

Reviewed: Jul. 13, 2006
I made this dish last night with some leftover grilled chicken breasts. I shredded the chicken with a fork, rather than cut into pieces. When I put on the biscuit dough, I separated the biscuits in half & used only 1 tube. Very tasty dish with added ingredients as suggested. It really pays off to read the reviews!

Ambrosia Fruit Salad

Reviewed: Jul. 13, 2006
This recipe always has the family fighting over any leftovers in the bowl. I usually have additional do-dahs in this recipe; so to stretch out the dressing I add about 1/2c. reduced fat mayonnaise. I then chop up 1 Granny Smith apple, slice 1 banana, cut back on the coconut, use BLACK chopped walnuts & colored mini marshmellows. For more of a Calypso-style salad, you can use papaya, guava, mango, & poppyseed. For those who don't like the nutmeg, try using some allspice instead (pumpkin spice).

Mexican Cheese Dip

Reviewed: Jul. 12, 2006
I stumbled across this recipe when looking for a kid's appetizer -- I make a few changes & call it Cowboy Hash. Brown 1lb. lean ground beef & drain off any excess fat. Stir in some chopped onion & heat thru a couple minutes more. Transfer the mixture to your crockpot, & be certain to use the Rotell tomatoes brand. I don't put in the broccoli. Excellent for Super Bowl parties, New Year's Eve, etc.

Cocktail Wieners II

Reviewed: Jul. 12, 2006
I have several variations I make on this recipe; I heat up the ingredients in a microwaveable bowl 1st, then switch it to the crockpot to keep warm for serving. For The Grandchildren: DO NOT use cocktail sauce -- instead I add to taste a couple tablespoons of prepared yellow mustard, & a standard BBQ sauce...

Tater Tot Bake

Reviewed: Jul. 12, 2006
Okay, this recipe is similar to one I had my 11yr. old daughter try as her 1st attempt with cooking a main dish (very easy). Instead, the ground beef mixture is spread evenly over the bottom (usually seasoned with garlic powder & Worcestershire sauce). Next add either cream of tomato or cream of chicken soup; spread evenly over the top. Next you layer on about 1 1/2cups of your choice of shredded cheeses (usually a blend works best). Finish by topping the casserole with the tater tots -- they get crispier & browned this way. Enjoy the time in the kitchen with your kids!!!
