Southern Fried Chicken

Reviewed: Oct. 3, 2006
This was my first time ever making fried chicken (no kidding! A 39 year old married 13 years!) and it turned out terrific. Simple ingredients made for gentle flavors that shined through. Paired with a simple salad of butter lettuce and grape tomatoes and smashed Yukon gold potatoes sprinkled with sea salt and butter and viola! a fabulously homey indulgence...

Oven Baked BBQ Ribs

Reviewed: Dec. 17, 2009
This sauce is superb. I only had beef ribs so I boiled beef ribs for 20 minutes, poured half the sauce over ribs and bake 15 mins in 425 oven, pour rest of sauce over and bake 15 more. Fork tender lovin' from the oven. It will not disappoint.

Lemon Chicken Piccata

Reviewed: Nov. 1, 2011
Excellent! I liked the idea of using a warm platter to keep the done chicken in while the others are cooking. Served this over fettuccine noodles for the kids; and because we try to keep it as LOW CARB as possible, my hubby and I ate it over sauteed julienned veggies. (I recommend jullienned onions, zucchini, and carrots in olive oil with minced garlic.)

Crazy Cake

Reviewed: Feb. 8, 2010
Fabulous, moist, flavorful cake... super easy to make... easier than cake mix, but SO much more delicious. I used the Sturdy Whipped Cream Frosting- perfect!

Asian Orange Chicken

Reviewed: Feb. 12, 2010
Awesome! I used my FryDaddy for very authentic restaurant results. Served over sticky rice and a stir fry made with store-bought broccoli slaw, mushrooms, asparagus tips, and red pepper strips. Truly, truly a yummy dinner that wowed my family (and me) :-))))))

Brown Sugar Meatloaf

Reviewed: Feb. 23, 2010
Very good- I substituted oats for the cracker crumbs- a healthier fiber filled option without sacrificing any taste.

Big Al's K.C. Bar-B-Q Sauce

Reviewed: May 17, 2010
Very good- I used liquid mesquite-flavored smoke with great results.... FYI, the Dollar Store sells both kinds :-)

Real Italian Calzones

Reviewed: Aug. 20, 2010
Fantastic- this came out perfect. The dough was just the right texture and flavor. The crust was crispy with just the right balance of sweet and savory. I followed the dough instructions to the letter and modified the fillings to suit. Hawaiian style will be my next try (pineapple/ham) and then meatballs...

Banana Crumb Muffins

Reviewed: Aug. 23, 2010
Yup- there's a reason this has over 5,000 reviews and maintains it's 5* status- perfectly awesome. I didn't have brown sugar for the topping so I just used white sugar with excellent results.

My Best Clam Chowder

Reviewed: Oct. 23, 2010
Excellent springboard! Changes I made: minced 4 slices of bacon and then added onions, celery and carrot. After transparent added clam juice and potato cubes and water to cover. The rest I did the same. Bacon adds a most excellent background flavor that marries with the clams perfectly.

Tender Potato Rolls

Reviewed: Nov. 27, 2010
Made these for Thanksgiving- fantastic results. I took out what equaled about one mashed potato out of the massive mountain of mashed potatoes I had made ahead of time. Contrary to the recipe, my mashed potatoes already had butter, salt, sour cream in them and the recipe still turned out perfect. Excellent, easy to make, rich and satisfying roll. (Makes awesome little turkey sandwiches for leftovers- layer turkey, stuffing, cranberry and a little mayo on the roll.)

Out of this World Turkey Brine

Reviewed: Nov. 27, 2010
Helpful hint: I had a 24 lb. bird and could not find a container large enough to accommodate. I bought a 10 gallon plastic storage container with a lid and lined it with a new, clean Hefty trash bag. Pour the brine in the bag, put the turkey in and store in the fridge. Turn it every so often. I also added lemon and orange slices to the brine- very very moist turkey. There was no need to salt the turkey. I put pats of butter in between the skin and breast meat before roasting. Perfect turkey. I've brined for years and this was a new recipe for me. Enjoy and experiment a bit. Brining will definitely convert you into being a master Thanksgiving chef :-)

Cabbage Borscht Mennonite Soup

Reviewed: Dec. 19, 2010
This is much like my mother's borscht- here's a tip: she peels the potatoes and puts them in whole (instead of cubing them). When they soften, she cradles them in a large spoon and uses a fork to break them into bite sized chunks and. For some reason, THIS MAKES ALL THE DIFFERENCE. I know not why. Try it, you won't be disappointed.

Nana's Barbeque Sauce

Reviewed: Jan. 15, 2011
Excellent. Doubled the recipe and sweat the onions in some olive oil then added the rest of ingredients. I simmered about 25-30 mins to really develop the sauce. Used with pulled pork and pulled chicken with rave results. Next time I might try adding a bit of liquid smoke and see where that takes the sauce. Perfect sauce though.

French Baguettes

Reviewed: Feb. 24, 2011
All I can say is WOW. Simply the best baguette/french bread recipe for the home cook. Authentic to the core. I forgot the eggwash and the crust still came out crispy with that signature crunch that french bread makes when you tear it apart and watch the steam rise from it, then slather it with butter and.... oh, hello... lost in how good that was. Time for another loaf!

Pita Chips

Reviewed: Aug. 21, 2010
Excellent! I paired this with the "Extra Easy Hummus" recipe from Donalyn with great results. I had no chervil, but used a smattering of Italian Seasoning (about 1/4 tso) and it worked very well. Pita chips and hummus at a FRACTION of the cost for store bought with all the flavor and zest- no competition. I will be doing this from now on. So long, $4 bag of Stacey's Pita Chips!

Pearl Baked Cream Onions

Reviewed: Dec. 24, 2009
FANTASTIC. I used fresh peal onions and followed package instructions (par boil 3 minutes, rinse, cut both ends and peel outer layer off) then proceeded with recipe exactly as written. I made it in a gratin dish and it looked positively inviting. It didn't disappoint! Served it with a cross rib roast and mashed sweet potatoes (the combo of this dish and the mashed sweet potatoes was out of this world on the plate) for Christmas dinner.
