Gooey Butter Cake III

Reviewed: Apr. 1, 2008
Delicious! Helpful tip: others complained about the difficulty of getting the dough into the pan - just mix it all in the pan and it spreads easily.

Sausage Egg Casserole

Reviewed: Nov. 22, 2007
This is a great make ahead breakfast casserole. I cut the recipe in half. If you do this make sure you use a large enough dish so it will cook within the 40 - 50 minutes. The first time I made it I used a smaller dish and it was too thick to cook through. This also reheats well for leftovers.

Sweet, Sticky and Spicy Chicken

Reviewed: Feb. 28, 2009
Very good. Place the meat in a bowl with 3 T. cornstarch and 1 T. water. Toss and work it in so all of the cornstarch is absorbed. This will thicken your sauce and has a smoother consistency than flour does. I doubled the sauce and added my favorite stir fry vegetables and served over Jasmine rice.

Italian Peas

Reviewed: Feb. 27, 2008
The best peas I've ever had. I followed the recommendation of using chicken bouillon dissolved in water in lieu of the broth. Very tasty!

Bacon Ranch Pasta Salad

Reviewed: Jun. 18, 2008
Great hearty flavor. Not a light salad. Tastes much better than Suddenly Salad. I used half the bacon and no olives. I added frozen peas with 3 minutes left in the boiling pasta. Will use fresh, uncooked peas when in season. I also used a whole wheat blend pasta for half of the rotini which added color and flavor. Definitely a keeper and what's great is there are no trans fats like in the boxed pasta mixes.

Tomato and Zucchini Melange

Reviewed: Jul. 7, 2008
I chose this recipe because it reminded me of a dish my mom used to make when I was a child. I liked how it called for salsa which added some dimension to the dish. I also added some pressed garlic. I did not add water because I used a regular tomato which tends to be watery. Once it was plated I added shredded parmesan and crumbled feta. The feta did the trick. It was okay tasting until that was added.

Strawberry Shortbread Pie

Reviewed: Jun. 16, 2008
To me the shortbread version of strawberry pie is the best. I wanted a sweeter glaze and used 1 cup sugar with 1 cup water with the 3 T. cornstarch and package of strawberry gelatin. I also kept my strawberries whole. I made a homemade crust of 1/2 cup ground shortbread cookies (ground in food processor) then added 1/4 cup sugar, 1/2 cup flour and 1 cold stick unsalted butter cubed. I pulsed this in my food processor and formed this in a pie dish. I baked it at 350 for 20 minutes. Let it cool before adding the strawberries and glaze. A wonderful way to enjoy fresh summer strawberries.

Banana Nut Oatmeal

Reviewed: Jun. 15, 2009
Surprisingly good! This is a quick, healthy breakfast and even my 5 year old really liked it. I didn't have honey so I used some brown sugar. I will definitely do this again. The oatmeal was a little chewy so I'll add a little more milk next time.

Cream of Cauliflower Soup I

Reviewed: Jul. 7, 2008
I would rate this soup a 3.5. It seemed to be lacking some flavor. I needed to add a bunch of salt and some extra sharp cheddar to add flavor. I think next time I will use salted butter, add some garlic and crushed red pepper with the onions. I will also caramelize the onions for added depth. I'm not sure how this will mix with the thyme and tarragon but it seems to be lacking a bolder flavor. If these modifications don't work I will try some fresh basil. And definitely puree all of the soup, otherwise the whole vegetables are left lacking for flavor. This is a great start to a potentially superb soup. Oh, and definitely cut down on the liquid. I cut the broth down to 4 cups and didn't steam the cauliflower ahead of time but let it soften in the broth to keep the flavor in the soup base and not left in a steamer. I also used all cream hoping this would bolden the flavor.

Southern Pulled Pork

Reviewed: Jul. 7, 2008
On its own I think the pork would be too bland, as other reviewers have said. Having lived in Nashville a few years and wanting a pulled pork slathered in sauce (as I am used to) I made a couple of changes that made this very appetizing and reminiscent of smokehouses. I kept everything in the preparation part of the recipe the same. I used vidalia onions. Instead of water I used 12 ounces of my favorite BBQ sauce and 12 ounces of a lager beer. I used the same amount of the liquid smoke. I started it in the slow cooker at breakfast time on high and four hours into it lowered it to low until dinner time. With one hour remaining I pulled the pork apart so the sauce could saturate all of the pieces. When it was finished I strained it and served it with a bottle of BBQ sauce on the side. Very delicious!

Cheddar Cabbage Casserole

Reviewed: Nov. 17, 2007
I am usually not a fan of cooked cabbage recipes. I tried this one with the recommendation of adding cooked breakfast sausage (1/2 lb.) and garlic powder and it turned out great. My 3 year old enjoyed it as well. I would cook this again.

German Apple Pudding Cake

Reviewed: Nov. 13, 2007
This is the best apple dessert I have found. If you're tired of apple crisp or apple pie then definitely try this one. I used sweet apples so I reduced the sugar in the cake to 3/4 cup and omitted the raisins in the topping but kept them in the cake. Absolutely delicious!

Vegetarian Four Cheese Lasagna

Reviewed: Oct. 7, 2008
This is fantastic! I have never liked vegetarian lasagna and this can replace a meat one in my house any day. I had a lot of fresh veggies from the CSA (community supported agriculture) that I'm a part of so I made some additions to the recipe. I started by caramelizing half an onion sliced thin. Added a package of sliced baby bellas and chopped up one bunch fresh spinach. I roasted my eggplant 30 minutes in a 400 degree oven by first cubing it and sprinkling olive oil, minced garlic, salt and pepper on it and stirring it half way through. Then mixed the veggies together to be my veggie portion. I used home canned pumpkin and tomatoes in place of fresh and used no-boil noodles. I mixed my tomatoes in with the tomato sauce to make it spread easier. I also cut the feta down to 4 oz. It was the perfect portion. Note: If you want this dish to be truly vegetarian you need to find feta that does not have animal rennet in it which is the stomach lining.

Herbed Batter Rolls

Reviewed: Jul. 7, 2008
Surprisingly good. I'm used to garlic herbed rolls and these were on the sweeter, lighter side. A nice change from the typical herbed roll. Be prepared for very gooey batter but they rose well and baked sooner than the time allotted for. I only needed to spray cooking oil (Pam) in the muffin pan and they didn't stick at all. Everyone loved it and they were very quick. I love how it didn't require kneading and only used one bowl.

Garlic Chicken

Reviewed: Nov. 25, 2008
Delicious and easy. Be careful not to overcook. The chicken can be done as early as 20 minutes depending on the size.

Wild Rice and Asparagus Chicken Breasts

Reviewed: Oct. 21, 2009
Very easy to make and extremely tasty. I am partial to brown rice (the 50 minute version) and used that. I also added sliced garlic with the asparagus. That helps to infuse garlic into the oil (which I didn't have peanut oil so I used 3 T of veg oil and 1 T sesame oil.) The final dish was absolutely delicious. A keeper in our recipe box.

Pork Chops Stuffed with Smoked Gouda and Bacon

Reviewed: Nov. 27, 2008
SUPERB! This was spectacular. I followed another recommendation of pan searing the chops. I deglazed the pan with a chardonnay and added some cream, and extra parsley, gouda and bacon with a sprinkle of salt. This sauce went wonderfully over the chops. As my husband says, "you can't go wrong with pork wrapped in pork".

No Bake Bumpy Peanut Butter Nuggets

Reviewed: Oct. 9, 2008
What a fun snack and great opportunity to let small children make it themselves. I did not have coconut or apple juice concentrate on hand so I used mini chocolate morsels and honey. I also added some flax seed which complemented the nuttiness and added some additional health value. These are much better served frozen - less of a mess. Very tasty and fun.

Baked Chicken on Rice

Reviewed: Aug. 13, 2008
Just didn't like the flavor. I think onion soup mix goes better with beef. It seems people either really like this or despise it. It was worth a try but I won't make it again - it was purely a flavor thing for me.
