Buffalo Chicken Dip

Reviewed: Dec. 29, 2010
This is affectionately referred to as 'that orange dip'. So the color may be off-putting to some... but the taste? Just like chicken wings in spreadable form. Really can't go wrong with this dip no matter if you choose ranch vs. bleu, canned vs. roasted chicken, cheddar vs. mozzarella or jack or colby... you get the point. Fresh celery is a MUST with this... so good.

Simple Carnitas

Reviewed: Jan. 3, 2011
This recipe proves that sometimes simplicity IS best. Out of necessity I adapted this for the slow cooker and in less than 8 hours, the crew and I were feasting on pure, unadulterated porky goodness. Of course, some of us were more refined and ate these carnitas wrapped in a tortilla along with a lightly dressed taco slaw. Thank you, Ken from CA, for a deliciously new New Year tradition.

Emily's Famous Chocolate Shortbread Cookies

Reviewed: Dec. 9, 2010
I found this recipe when other searches for a non-cakey red velvet cookie turned up short. Got me to thinking that since red velvet cake is a chocolate cake in diguise, why wouldn't that apply to cut-out cookies as well? This chocolate shortbread recipe appealed to me because of the numerous dependable reviews and gorgeous pictures, so I knew what my end result should resemble. I simply decreased the cocoa powder by half, added a small amount of Wilton's Red-Red to desired shade then cut and baked as directed. Once decorated, these shortbread, while not as chocolatey as the original recipe, not only look gorgeous (pics in profile), they taste gorgeous too. Thanks Emily, soon your red velvet shortbread cookies will be famous as well.

Traci's Adobo Seasoning

Reviewed: Feb. 25, 2011
I enjoy making my own seasoning blends, especially ones I've never tried but are so pricey at the store (... what if I don't like it??). Plus, making your own is a great way to control sodium -- for me, reducing the salt by half was perfect (can always add more later). Multipurpose multi-spices ... love it.... thanks so much!

Southern Dill Potato Salad

Reviewed: Jun. 22, 2011
I so wish my newly potted dill plant hadn't bit the dust this early into summer; I would have favored this salad even more utilizing fresh dill. The dressing is one of the most well-rounded blends of mayo, sour cream, vinegar and dijon I've had the pleasure of tasting so far this bbq / picnic season -- not one particular flavor stood out. Very, very good.

Jay's Signature Pizza Crust

Reviewed: Jan. 22, 2011
.... and here are my 5 stars. Great dough with which to work. Found it a little sticky at first, but it made the most perfect crust -- chewy and crunchy at the same time. I used half of this recipe as the dough for 'Lunch-Box "Handwiches" ' and the other half for actual pizza -- both were fantastic! Once my grill thaws out from under a foot of snow and ice, I'm very much looking forward to trying this as a grilled pizza dough. Thanks Jason!

Marinated Vegetable Salad

Reviewed: Jun. 9, 2011
Broke out the mandoline for this one. Zip, zip, done. Could not have been any easier. I lessened the sugar amount by 1/4C and the dressing was perfecto -- veg stayed nice and crisp for 2 days in the fridge. *tip* slightly warm the vinegar in microwave prior to blending the dressing to better incorporate the sugar.

Grilled Vidalia Onion Soup

Reviewed: Jun. 22, 2011
Dear Grilled Vidalia Onion Soup: Where, oh where have you been all my life? So delicious... sweet, sweet Vidalia onions bathed in a buttery, salty-beefy broth... One could not ask for an easier grilled recipe. I took a cue from 'opies tailor' and used my soup crocks encased in foil. Works great -- no leakage or spillage of hot liquid -- just peel back foil and enjoy. Outstanding!

Holuski

Reviewed: Dec. 16, 2010
The humble cabbage meets unassuming egg noodles in this winter's blockbuster hit... Holuski. Fun to pronounce AND to eat. I'm with the majority-- it's easier to saute onion and cabbage all in one large pan then stir in the noodles (I choose kluski noodles for heartier texture). I've also been known to throw in some bacon for the crew every now and again... Good stuff, Kimberly.

Peanut Butter and Pumpkin Dog Treats

Reviewed: Sep. 25, 2010
At roughly $1.85 per batch, I'd say this is well worth the hour it took to mix, cut and bake some of these wholesome doggie treats. I left out the cinnamon and salt, but found (as other reviewers did) it necessary to add more pumpkin to make a workable dough. Once the dough was rolled thin, I simply used a pizza cutter to make strips then squares, then baked on parchment-lined sheet pans until hard and crunchy (35 min). Two big woofs of thanks from Lola and Remy!

Italian Wedding Soup I

Reviewed: Dec. 9, 2010
This is the very first made-from-scratch soup I learned how to make, so it's near and dear to my heart (and tummy). Homemade chicken stock is the way to go with this rustic soup... the bits of tender chicken coupled with teeny meatballs (I opt for ground turkey or chicken), supple orzo, braised greens then topped with salty parmesan is ethereal... nothing else like it. Try it. Your tummy will thank you.

Fresh-Squeezed Salty Dog

Reviewed: Aug. 9, 2010
Move over, Rover, there's a Salty Dog in town! This recipe alone gives one reason to keep gin in the freezer and grapefruit in the fruit bowl all summer long. Cheers.

Buckeye Cookies III

Reviewed: Nov. 28, 2010
Hang on Sloopy... love me some buckeye cookies! This was the first cookie I learned how to make at the age of 7 and it has graced my Christmas cookie platters ever since. Once dipped, these cookies freeze like a champ (best eaten semi-frozen in my opinion). But these babies are sweet, sweet, sweet... so roll 'em small. Oh yeah, Go Bucks!

Twenty-Four Hour Salad

Reviewed: Jan. 27, 2011
Retro food is back! Everything old is new again. Really what's not to love about this classic composed salad?? Chock full of your favorite veggies, slathered in (reduced fat, if you please) mayo and assembled an entire day ahead of time. Popular in the 70's, popular once again... disco should have been so lucky.

Baked Kale Chips

Reviewed: Jan. 10, 2011
So now I'm hoppin' on the kale chips bandwagon too. These are SO outrageously good... you really don't expect a tough, hearty kale leaf to bake up crispy and light. It's a good thing kale is so inexpensive... I've a feeling I'll be making these a lot. LucyDelRey, this is fantastic -- thank you!

Fabulous Homemade Bread

Reviewed: Nov. 4, 2011
This bread IS fabulous! Not too wheaty or oaty, it's a good sturdy all-purpose bread that's just heavenly slathered with salted butter while still fresh from the oven... sooo worth the steam burns.

Southern Grilled Barbecued Ribs

Reviewed: Jun. 22, 2011
If this is truly any indication of how ribs are done in the South, then this Northern girl is movin'! The ribs get all nice and tender-like from the oven-braise, then finished on the grill with a not too sweet, not too spicy homemade bbq sauce until crispy and slightly charred on the edges.... heaven on a plate.

French Onion Soup VIII

Reviewed: Feb. 28, 2006
Yummy onion soup. I used vidalia onions, only 1 bay leaf and out of necessity, Honey Brown beer in place of the wine. The beer accented the sweetness of the onions nicely. After tasting the soup, I added a pinch of thyme... Delish. Thanks!

Easy Cajun Grilled Veggies

Reviewed: Sep. 15, 2011
Easy? You betcha this is easy, full of flavor too. The Worcestershire added a new dimension to an all-veg (but not vegetarian) marinade. The cayenne coupled with the Cajun seasoning made the squash nice and spicy, so I took the recommended suggestion to serve this atop a bed of brown rice -- perfect partnership, perfect dinner.

Taco Salad III

Reviewed: Jul. 31, 2011
We all know we need to watch what we eat and not be a slave to the fast food nation, right? But sometimes, just sometimes, that craving hits and you've just gotta indulge. This satisfies the craving without the guilt. For this recipe, I use lean ground turkey seasoned with Bill Echols' fabulous Taco Seasoning I, baked tortilla chips and hot salsa for the dressing. Makes HUGE salads, too, so it definitely satiates big appetites.
