Catfish Cakes

Reviewed: Jan. 16, 2004
This is the best recipe I've ever found online. It's quick and easy, and even my daughter loved it. The recipe is also very versatile. I substituted mayo for the miracle whip and bread crumbs for half of the cracker crumbs. A new family favorite.

Best Bread Machine Bread

Reviewed: Mar. 8, 2006
This was a wonderful easy recipe, even in my ancient bread machine. I substituted 2 1/4 teaspoons of quick acting yeast for the bread flour yeast and unsalted butter for the oil, and the bread is delicious! Can't wait to try some of the variations listed here.

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!

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!

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.

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!

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.

Herbed Chicken Omelet

Reviewed: Feb. 29, 2008
Great flavor combination! The tarragon was especially nice. I added a diced tomato and a sprinkle of parmesan to the filling. It was a delicious omelet.

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.

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. :)

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!

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.

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!
