Sweet Butter

Reviewed: Feb. 7, 2011
Since I had only unsalted butter, I added a pinch of salt to round out the honeyed spices. So good spread on top of cornbread and even better on baked sweet potatoes.

Merritt's Butternut Squash Gratin

Reviewed: Nov. 14, 2010
Excellent recipe. I recently picked up 3 butternut squash at the farmer's market for a grand total of one dollar... but what to do with them? Roasted with maple and cinnamon, check. Pureed into a bisque, check. I wanted the last one to be a test run, possibly something to serve at the holidays. And this gratin is it. I did not have the Gruyere, but I did have a passable substitute of Swiss (along the same flavor family, but more economical for everyday use). And save for slicing the squash on the mandoline, I followed the recipe as intended. Oh my... I knew I liked squash, I just didn't know I loved it. THIS will be the ace up my sleeve at Thanksgiving potluck, thanks to Merrittorious.

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.

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.

Fruity Fun Skewers

Reviewed: Jun. 21, 2011
Fruity - check. Fun - check. Skewer-y - check. Really, who can resist food on a stick? Use any fruit available and watch it disappear. Great option for a buffet instead of a large bowl of fruit salad - serve with several fruit dips on the side for an interesting twist.

Hot Fudge Sauce

Reviewed: Jul. 30, 2011
Don't know why I waited so long to make my own hot fudge sauce. Mere mortal words cannot describe how delightful and delectable this is -- easy to make, too! Honestly, I thought it would require a lot of fuss or usage of a candy thermometer (which is my culinary Lex Luthor). Now I know differently.... Too bad, really... now I'm gonna need stretchy pants.

Halibut Dijonaise

Reviewed: May 10, 2006
This was really good. Instead of halibut, I used tilapia (my son's preference) and decreased the horseradish a bit. The fish was moist and very flavorful... will make again. Thanks!

Fruit Pie Crumb Topping

Reviewed: Jul. 8, 2011
A good, solid baking staple -- easy enough to double or quadruple and keep in the freezer for those last-minute fruit pies (great for the crust-challenged!). I like to mix it up by using half white sugar/half brown sugar and tossing in some rolled oats -- just whiz it around in the food processor and the work is all done for you. Easy, easy.

Cajun Pasta Fresca

Reviewed: Aug. 17, 2011
All year long I dream of the days when tomatoes are at their ripened peak. This dish showcases the best summer has to offer with a barely cooked sauce and cheese(!). The addition of Cajun seasoning is just a little something extra to keep the tastebuds a-tingling. Not only inexpensive, quick and easy, this pasta dish also tastes terrific hot, at room temp or even straight from the 'fridge. A sure seasonal favorite.

Honey Mustard Dressing II

Reviewed: Apr. 20, 2006
A-ha! Now I know what was lacking in all of the other honey mustard dressings I've tried... lemon juice. Really perks up the flavor, yet cuts the sweetness of the honey. Made mine with f/f mayo then drizzled on a spring mix salad with red bell pepper, sweet onion and purple grapes. Delicious... 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.

Seasoning Blend

Reviewed: Oct. 8, 2011
At first I thought this would be onion powder-heavy, but once blended, all the spices and herbs melded together. I used this to season chicken paillards for 'Baked Lemon Chicken with Mushroom Sauce' (recipe byJoyce Sokoloff) and it provided just the right amount of zip the dish needed.

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!

Good Old Fashioned Pancakes

Reviewed: Sep. 27, 2011
I have made, oh, countless pancake recipes over the years... and this recipe, along with about 2 others, really stands out for superior results. The batter is a perfect consistency to produce not-too-fluffy pancakes, so they can withstand a good dousing of syrup without becoming a plateful of mush. A good sturdy make-ahead pancake, too; these freeze then reheat in the nuker or toaster oven very well.

Soft Ginger Cut-Outs

Reviewed: Oct. 2, 2011
I didn't make the frosting as I didn't roll and cut the dough; I simply rolled balls of the chilled dough in granulated sugar before plopping onto a parchment-lined sheet pan. The trick to these little butter/oil-free, egg-free gems is to underbake them, remove from the oven and let them rest on the sheet pans for a minute or two before placing onto a cooling rack to finish cooling. By doing just that, these stayed nice and soft (even after being frozen) for a few days. These are a definite addition to the cookie platters this holiday season!

BBQ Chicken Salad

Reviewed: Apr. 20, 2006
What to do with that leftover grilled chicken or that almost-empty bottle of BBQ sauce taking up space in the fridge? Make this salad, of course. While I made mine meatless using black beans in place of the chicken, I used leftover grilled chicken (which was marinated in 'Marinade For Chicken') for the rest of the family's salads. Topped the salads with crushed tortilla chips for a colorful and delicious meal. Thanks!

Jacky's Fruit and Yogurt Muffins

Reviewed: Apr. 7, 2006
Fantastic and healthy muffins for grab-n-go breakfasts. I used 1/2 whole wheat flour, f/f wild berry yogurt and reduced the butter and sugar amounts. Made mini-muffins, each with a whole blackberry in the center... but the variations are endless. Thanks!

Authentic Bahamian Peas and Rice

Reviewed: Mar. 29, 2006
A great foil to spicy jerk-style chicken or pork. I omitted the corned beef (as I had none) and subbed black-eyed peas for the pigeon peas. The coconut milk is key!! Will make again... thanks!

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.

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!
