Restaurant-Style Buffalo Chicken Wings

Reviewed: Oct. 16, 2005
This is a great recipe! It has a little heat but isn't overly hot--just perfect for our family. If you like a real spicy chicken wing, add more hot sauce. We modified it a little so that we could make buffalo chicken sandwiches. I cut the chicken into approx 1-1 1/2 inch slices (which only require 6-8 minutes in the deep frier at 375). My husband raved over it so many times, I will be making this again soon.

Chocolate Eclair Dessert

Reviewed: Nov. 10, 2005
This is a super easy and delicious recipe! In fact, I am often asked for the recipe and I hesitate to give it out because I don't want people to know how easy it is to make. I also make this in a slightly smaller pan (such as an 8 x 11) so that it is thicker.

Chicken Enchiladas I

Reviewed: Mar. 12, 2006
This recipe was very good--my 1 year old twins even enjoyed it. The only change I made was to add a package of drained, chopped spinach (and omitted the water) so that my girls would get some vegetables in their dinner.

Pork Sausage Gravy

Reviewed: Mar. 25, 2006
May I suggest reading Flobees suggestions? She is exactly correct when she says to use 2 tablespoons flour to one cup of milk. I don't use skim milk, though. Also, I suggest using one pound of regular sausage and one pound of hot or spicy sausage, then brown it with some chopped onions. Finally, as Flobees suggests, add the flour to the sausage after the sausage is browned (make sure the sausage is coated) and then add the milk. You shouldn't have a problem with lumps (just don't add additional flour after adding the milk!) I usually use 4 tablespoons of flour and 4 cups of milk.

Avocado, Tomato and Mango Salsa

Reviewed: Aug. 3, 2006
This was a great salsa! I am a pretty tough critic of my own cooking, so I thought it was just pretty good. However, I have brought it to two cookouts this summer, and everyone raved over it both times. I was even asked if I had a spoon so they could just eat it from the bowl. My bro-in-law (who is picky about his salsa) parked himself in front of the bowl and ate half of it. I did have to add an extra pepper for a little more bite, but my peppers may have been a little mild. I am bringing it to another get-together this weekend!

Buffalo Chicken Dip

Reviewed: Feb. 5, 2007
Wow, this was quite a hit at the Superbowl part! There were about 40 people at the party and almost everyone commented on how much they liked this dip. I even had to give out the recipe several times because the wives said that their husbands insist that they learn how to make this. The only changes I made were to use 3 chicken breasts (boiled then shredded), 1/2 cup ranch and 1/2 cup bleu cheese, and no cheddar cheese. I even had the cheddar cheese in the refrigerator, but I really did not think that the dip needed it because it was so rich already. The dip did not turn greasy AT ALL. Maybe this is because I didn't use any cheddar. I will definitely be making this for my next get-together!

Ranch Ham Roll-Ups

Reviewed: Feb. 28, 2007
These were a huge hit at my party! My husband overheard people talking about how much flavor they had. I did make a few changes, though. First, I used chive and onion cream cheese (and then omitted the green onions). Second, I followed another reviewer's suggestion and added a little shredded cheese to them. Finally, I used sun-dried tomato tortillas instead of plain ones. They would probably also be good with the garden vegetable tortillas! Yum! As a side note--be careful about the type of ham that you use. I once made these with a ham that had a bit of a smokey flavor and I didn't like them as well.

Brown Sugar Smokies

Reviewed: Jan. 2, 2009
When I first read this recipe, I thought that it sounded rather terrible. However, I gave it a shot since it got such great reviews. I am very happy that I tried it because my husband and his friends LOVE it. After making it a couple of times and reading other reviews, I found that I like this recipe best when I brown the bacon a little before wrapping it. Also, when I used regular cut bacon rather than the thick cut, it seemed to crisp better. However, I used 1/2 slice of the regular bacon instead of 1/3 slice of the thick. I also put these on skewers and placed them over a cake pan (lined in tin foil) to make clean-up easier. Before I removed them from the skewers, I stuck a toothpick into each so that the bacon doesn't slip off. I have been told that I will be making these for SuperBowl!

Chicken Fettuccini Alfredo

Reviewed: Jan. 12, 2009
This was OK, but it definitely did not taste like an alfredo sauce. I agree with a previous reviewer who thought that this was more like a chicken stroganoff. If you are looking for a real alfredo sauce, don't use this recipe.

Unbelievable Spinach Calzones

Reviewed: Mar. 21, 2009
After reading other reviews, I made a few changes to this recipe and it turned out great (meaning my kids actually liked it) and it was pretty fast. First, I cut the recipe in half. Instead of buying different cheeses, I skipped the ricotta and just used a 2 cup package of shredded Italian cheeses. I also added some sauteed onions, garlic, and red pepper to the spinach mixture. I used way less of the Italian seasoning. Finally, I bought Pillsbury's thin crust pizza dough instead of bread dough. I realized that if I unrolled the dough and held it by the edges, it would stretch out on its own. Then I cut it into rectangles, filled half the rectangle, and folded over. My calzones weren't in the traditional form, but no one cared. I brushed the top with olive oil and added a bit of parmesan. Be careful with the baking time. My calzones only took about 15 minutes.

Fruit Pizza

Reviewed: Jul. 14, 2010
I have made this dessert several times in the past year, and I ALWAYS get rave reviews on it. Last weekend I brought it to a dinner party and I was barely able to get the last piece since everyone wanted seconds. The crust is not too sweet like some of the recipes that use sugar cookies as the base.

Low Fat Buttermilk Ranch Dressing

Reviewed: May 7, 2012
Very good flavor--a bit thin to use for dipping vegetables, though. We tried it with grilled salmon and loved it.
