Sweet and Sour Dipping Sauce

Reviewed: Dec. 25, 2010
This came out much thinner than I wanted, so I added another teaspoon of corn starch to a teaspoon of cold water, stirred in and let simmer for 4-6 minutes. Perfect, and I LOVE that it wasn't bright red! Update Jan. 1, 2011: started with 2 tsp corn starch, used seasoned rice wine vinegar, 3/4 tsp canola oil and 1/4 tsp sesame oil, no salt, and left everything else the same, and it was awesome. 5-star keeper!

Chicken El Dermie Le Hermie

Reviewed: Dec. 5, 2010
I spray the chicken legs with coconut oil spray (Pam works too), then sprinkle with AR's Creole Seasoning Blend. Turn each leg over as you spray and sprinkle, then do the other sade. I have a jumbo portion of drumsticks, so we'll have some tonight, then I'll refrigerate the leftovers for an easy beach luncheon. I've used this recipe for years, and my kids love it! (they're now 13 & 15)

Sausage Breakfast Wraps

Reviewed: Dec. 1, 2010
Great, even with all my changes! I used breakfast roll sausage, hash brown potatoes, 6 regular eggs, and wheat tortillas; no onion or chili powder (too spicy for the kids). They were thrilled, and they were a wonderful, easy, grab-n-go breakfast for a cold day, plus a nutritional boost for an all-day test today. This is a versatile and easy recipe, and it made enough to fill 15 7" tortillas!

Cod with Italian Crumb Topping

Reviewed: Nov. 30, 2010
Used sharp cheddar since I was out of Parmesan. Delicious! The kids (12, 10) & hubby loved it! This works well with tilapia, too.

Black Friday Pie

Reviewed: Nov. 27, 2010
I used a deep dish glass pie plate and I had to double the ingedients. I used our leftover cornbread dressing for the crust and baked at 375 for 10 mins while I reheated the other sides. I added cubed turkey & ham, some leftover wild rice/sausage/pecan dressing (personal recipe), & a few tbsp of gravy. Then I put my 'oranged' cranberry sauce on one half, since I wasn't sure if hubby wanted it or not (he did!), then the mashed potatoes and melted butter. To save time, I put the completed casserole in a pie plate in the microwave for 4 mins until it was hot, then only baked for 15 mins until it was golden and bubbly. (the same principle of baking a potato; goes faster if you microwave it first.) This is a keeper! The kids, 10 and 12, plus me & hubby only left about 2 big slices for leftovers, and they're asking for more!

Turkey Wild Rice Soup II

Reviewed: Nov. 26, 2010
We had this tonight from smoked turkey leftovers; hubby went back for seconds, and the kids (10, 12) loved it. I served it with sliced French bread, brushed with melted butter and baked at 400 for 10 mins. Nice job! This is a keeper! The lemon juice added a touch of "brightness" to the dish.

Beef Pot Pie III

Reviewed: Nov. 3, 2010
I had some leftover pot roast (marinated in soy sauce, worcestershire, and beef consomme'), and I separated the meat from the broth, added 1 can beef consomme', 2 cubed potatoes, broccoli, edamame, and shredded carrots, and simmered until tender. I put the meat and solid veggies in a bowl, then added 1 tbsp corn starch to 1/3 c water, dissolved, and added to simmering beef broth. We can hardly wait until tomorrow night to eat it! I cut slits in the top pie crust to allow for ventilation. I know the family (12, 10, and hubby) are gonna love this! (Update: it was wonderful!) We'll definitely have this again!

Asian Beef with Snow Peas

Reviewed: Oct. 20, 2010
This was okay; I doubled the sauce and added another teaspoon of corn starch; still not what I'm looking for, but the kids liked it well enough. I also added sliced baby portabello mushrooms, shredded carrots, broccoli instead of snow peas, and some yellow squash to add some color.

Awesome Grilled Cheese Sandwiches

Reviewed: Oct. 16, 2010
The bread came out a little crunchier than soaked in butter in the pan, but it sure took less effort to bake the sandwiches in the oven!

San Antonio Taco Salad

Reviewed: Oct. 15, 2010
Very fast to put together! I baked our flour tortillas, but since they were wheat, they took a lot longer to bake. Served with homemade ranch dressing, and the family said they'd like to have it again.

Creamy Buttermilk Dressing

Reviewed: Oct. 5, 2010
I forgot to add the lemon juice or vinegar, and I added a generous amount of Italian seasoning, along with several grinds of fresh black pepper. It was a little thick, so I added buttermilk to thin it out. This dressing improves as the flavors blend, so I let it sit overnight...delicious!!

Super Fast and Easy Chicken a la King

Reviewed: Sep. 12, 2010
A little bland, mostly because I hate canned soups, but I made this when we didn't have much time for dinner. I added 8oz sour cream to lighten the canned-taste, and used chicken broth instead of water. Toward the end, I added 1 tbsp corn starch to 1 tbsp cold water, stirred in, and let it boil for 2 mins to thicken it up a bit. Due to son's dietary restrictions, I used diced zucchini and fresh sauteed mushrooms instead of peas. Served over large grands biscuits, and the fam went back for seconds. Will probably make again.

Fruity Fun Skewers

Reviewed: Aug. 29, 2010
Made these yesterday for a poker night. I thought I made way too many (36 for 8 people) but by the end of the night, they were all gone! I made fruit dip with marshmallow creme and 8ozs cream cheese, with a splash of vanilla and 2 tbsp lemon juice to go along with. Will make again!

Layin' the Chocolate Smack Down

Reviewed: Aug. 26, 2010
This is almost the same as the Chocolate Trifle recipe. The only difference I add is 2 tbsp instant coffee to the chocolate pudding as it's being mixed, to make it more like a mocha trifle. If you let it sit overnight, it's even better.

Bacon Wrapped Green Beans

Reviewed: Aug. 19, 2010
Tried a small batch before taking to a family gathering where they're accustomed to their meals being served from a fast-food window. The small batch passed the kid test (10 & 12) and I went back for seconds. After sprinkling with brown sugar, I put seasoned salt on the green beans sticking out. I steamed fresh green beans for 5 mins after snipping the ends off then baked at 375 for 25 mins. to make sure the bacon was cooked. They passed the test: I'll make them for extended family with undeveloped taste palates, and I'll cross my fingers!
