Homesteader Cornbread

Reviewed: Jan. 3, 2014
Used melted unsalted butter instead of oil, doubled the salt and borrowed the vigorous stirring from other reviews. Delicious, about to use as a stuffing.

Naan

Reviewed: Oct. 8, 2012
A delicious recipe. The dough was smooth and lovely to work with. I cooked them over a medium heat in a cast iron pan. Next time I will follow another reviewers suggestion to mix the garlic into the melted butter for a more uniform garlic flavor, but other than that I wouldn't change a thing. We wrapped Shish Tawook (made from this recipe: http://allrecipes.com/recipe/shish-tawook-grilled-chicken/detail.aspx?event8=1&prop24=SR_Title&e11=shish+kabob&e8=Quick+Search&event10=1&e7=Home+Page ) in this bread and devoured it. I can't wait to try this on the grill.

Shish Tawook Grilled Chicken

Reviewed: Oct. 8, 2012
Wow this was delicious! I was out of peppers, so I used onions, mushroom halves and tomato wedges, and served them with a pile of fresh naan, (I used this recipe and cooked it in cast iron on the stove top. http://allrecipes.com/recipe/naan/detail.aspx?event8=1&prop24=SR_Title&e11=naan&e8=Quick%20Search&event10=1&e7=Home%20Page). Instead of firing up the grill, I cooked them under the broiler for about 5 minutes a side. The spice mix and seasoning were out of this world good, and it all came together pretty easily. Will definitely make this again.

Grandmother's Buttermilk Cornbread

Reviewed: Sep. 16, 2011
This was perfect cornbread. Nicely sweet and rich, the perfect accompaniment to a bowl of chili. I only had 1/2 cup of buttermilk on hand, so I made up the difference with 2% and added an extra 1/4 teaspoon of baking soda, but the texture was just right. Thanks for a great recipe!

Pasta with Gorgonzola and Sweet Onion

Reviewed: Aug. 19, 2011
This is delicious! I was short an onion, so I added a little bit of agave nectar to make up the sweetness. I served it over tortellini with a sprinkle of parmesan and a lot of black pepper. Next time I'll try the arugula that was suggested earlier. That sounds lovely.

Garlic Chicken Fragrant Rice On a Budget

Reviewed: Apr. 3, 2011
This was easy and surprisingly delicious! I made a few changes based on what I had on hand. I used two cups of rice and three cups of chicken stock that I had leftover from a batch of Hainanese chicken rice. I skipped the olive oil but used four chicken thighs. I put in about five minutes of work and then closed the lid and pushed a button. 25 minutes later I fed my family a delicious dinner. Thanks for a great recipe!

Thai Ground Chicken Basil

Reviewed: Oct. 29, 2010
This was delicious! I only used four chiles, so it was spicy, but not Thai spicy. A great addition to a Thai inspired meal.

Whipped Cream Cheese

Reviewed: Aug. 28, 2010
I used two 8 oz packages of cream cheese and only two tablespoons of milk. Once it was combined I whipped it on high in my kitchenaid for a minute or so and the results were light, fluffy and delicious. It is very easy to spread and makes a little bit of cream cheese go a long way. Thanks!

Tom and Jerry Batter

Reviewed: Dec. 31, 2008
This tastes just like the stuff I drank as a kid in northern Wisconsin. Thanks so much for the recipe. I made a rookie mistake and didn't check the number of servings before I started separating eggs. Be aware, this recipe makes about six pints worth of the stuff. I'll be sending guests home with the leftovers. :)

Mahogany Chicken Wings

Reviewed: Dec. 26, 2008
Delicious wings! I was out of molasses, so I left it out. Also, I added a sprinkle of five spice powder and a drizzle of sesame oil. I started them the day before I needed them and let them marinade overnight so they really soaked up the flavors. I will definitely make these again.

Fabulous Homemade Bread

Reviewed: Jan. 25, 2008
So far, I love this recipe. I decided that I should start baking my own bread so that I know what goes into it and I don't have to worry about deciphering labels. I followed the recipe exactly so far, except that I substituted 1/3 cup of melted butter for 1/3 cup of the vegetable oil, and olive oil for the other 1/3 cup. The dough is currently resting in the refridgerator. I will take it out tomorrow to raise it, form it into loaves, rise it again and bake it. I wanted to tack a warning onto this recipe tonight though. If you have a small kitchenaid mixer, split this recipe in half. I just barely managed to pull together an entire batch of this dough in my mixer, but there are bits of dough up in the crank shaft and I am going to have a heck of a time cleaning this out. Even two batches of this quick and easy to throw together bread will be worth the time and effort. Especially with bread running $3.00 a loaf at the store. My poor mixer made an awful burning smell tonight. I am convinced that I will always half this recipe in the future. Hope that this is helpful. I will let you know how the finished product turns out.

Emily's Famous Hash Browns

Reviewed: Jan. 20, 2008
These were delicious! I had to lower the heat a little bit on mine, but I was cooking on an ancient electric stove. I added a little cheese and garlic to the mix, and I also added a little butter to the cooking oil. Thanks very much for a great recipe!

Upside-Down Orange Biscuits

Reviewed: Jan. 11, 2008
I can't decide if these were more delicious or easy to make, but they are definately both! They have all of the lovely flakiness of a biscuit with a sticky, orangy, spicy glaze that is just amazing. I added a little nutmeg and a little cardamom to the sugar and cinnamon mixture, but other than that I followed the recipe exactly. Thanks for posting this, I'll be using it often.

Herb Rubbed Sirloin Tip Roast

Reviewed: Jul. 21, 2007
This was truly delicious! I substituted fresh chopped garlic for the garlic powder and lowered the temp a bit. I had a 5 pound roast so I dropped the temp to 325 and cooked it for about an hour. (Until the temp reached 135), then I rested it while I made the gravy and mashed the potatoes. This roast produced one of the best gravies I've ever made. I cooked it on a rack in a shallow baking pan and put a can of beef broth and a couple of bay leaves underneath it. While the beef rested I strained the broth into a butter roux. (The broth had concentrated and it was a little salty so I added about 1/2 cup of water.) The resulting gravy was delicious. I'll definitely use this rub again. Thanks for a great recipe!

Shredded Beef Chimichangas

Reviewed: Sep. 15, 2006
My family liked this, but I think it could use a little more flavor. I added some salt and cayanne to the beef while it was cooking, which helped. Next time, I think I'll add a diced onion and some garlic when I add the beef broth. And I'll de-fat the broth with a strainer before mixing the beef back into it, because it was a little on the greasy side. Overall though, a great recipe!
