Fast, easy and delicious. The first time I used frozen chicken tenderloins; no need to defrost! The second time I used shrimp - will be good recipe for company.

Southern Candied Sweet Potatoes

Reviewed: Sep. 30, 2004
Excellent side dish. My whole family loved them. Didn't have nutmeg so used allspice instead. If you like soft potatoes like us, slice thin.

French Dip Sandwiches

Reviewed: Nov. 23, 2004
Very easy and delicious; great for relaxed entertaining. I cut the soy sauce in half, use beef broth instead of the cube, and cut back on the rosemary (not our favorite). Since I procrastinate for dinner, I usually cook on high for 5-6 hours and it still turns out terrific.

Good Old Fashioned Pancakes

Reviewed: Jan. 21, 2010
If I could, I would give this recipe more than five stars. I have been making these pancakes for almost six years now and they are always fabulous. My family requests them several times a week!

World's Best Lasagna

Reviewed: Mar. 1, 2010
This recipe received an "excellent" from my husband! It has taken 15 years and many, many lasagna recipes before he gave this recipe his seal of approval!!! I followed other reviews and made this the day before I cooked it. It really didn't take long to prepare. As the sauce (thick and hearty) simmered, I did other things. I soaked the noodles and assembled. I credit some of the success of this dish with the ingredients. I went to Whole Foods for the sausage (they make their own), hamburger, ricotta (Calabro) and fresh mozarella. I used 1/2 the sugar since the sausage and tomatoes (used organic fire roasted) were sweet enough. I can't wait until we have company and I can make it again. I just wish my children would eat it. My vegetarian daughter won't because it has meat and my carnivore son won't because it has cheese :-)

Brazilian White Rice

Reviewed: Apr. 7, 2010
Amazing rice. I didn't know white rice could have flavor. Will be a staple in our house.

Asparagus Parmesan

Reviewed: May 26, 2010
Absolutely loved it! I cooked the asparagus on the stove with olive oil and butter. Drained on paper towels. Added a pinch of kosher salt (I prefer the texture) and used a microplaner to shave the parmesean, to my taste. The microplaner makes such a fine shaving of parmesean, it melts upon touching the asparagus. I can't wait until I make it again.

Our family didn't care for it; the flavoring was unappealing.

Southern Candied Sweet Potatoes

Reviewed: Dec. 4, 2010
Awesome!! Scaled the recipe down, using only 2 potatoes, but still made plenty. You really need a large pan for this so you can spread the poatoes out so they cook evenly. Cooked in about 40 minutes. Used 1/2 white and 1/2 brown sugar. Used another reviewer's suggestion and stirred the sugar into the melted butter before I added the potatoes; resulted in a great sauce. And don't forget the vanilla; it makes the dish pop.

Turkey Pot Pie I

Reviewed: Dec. 4, 2010
My husband gives this a 5, I give it a 4. Easy and yummy recipe. I prefer a saucier pot pie, hence my four stars. My husband, who doesn't like pot pie, gobbled it up and wants me to make it again. For the first time in my life, I used a premade pie crust. Never again. The flavor and flakiness of a real pie crust outshines the fake one and will add dimension to the recipe.

Beef Stew VI

Reviewed: Dec. 20, 2010
This recipe is awesome! I seasoned the meat with salt, pepper, garlic powder, and onion powder (no flour) before browning. I used "better than bouillon" instead of granules. I let it simmer two hours before I added the potatoes. Waited another 30 minutes before adding the carrots and celery; I like them crispier, not soft. I doubled the cornstarch but it was still brothy like soup, which is just fine with me. My almost vegetarian daughter had a bowl of broth, carrots and celery and loved it. The real test will be my hubby; he does not like soups or stews as a rule. (He will be trying it tomorrow for lunch.) This is now in my rotation of comfort food. Perfect for these 15 degree days.UPDATE: finally figured out how to thicken the stew. mixed together 2 to 1 ratio of cornstarch to water and added when the stew was finished. Stew thickened up in less than 5 minutes.

Berry Smoothie

Reviewed: Jan. 24, 2011
My daughter has been after me to make a smoothie without yogurt. I made this recipe with a berry medley and my daughter loves it!!! She is a very picky 7 yr old and I'm thrilled to have something new in her rotation.

BBQ Pork for Sandwiches

Reviewed: Mar. 21, 2011
This is soooo good! Now I have to go out and buy a crockpot; I borrowed my neighbor's to make this both times. I followed other reviews and used a 3 lb roast along with low sodium beef broth. The roast fell apart beautifully at 4 hours in the crockpot. The first time I made it I used sweet baby rays, and it was good. However, we are partial to nc bbq (vinegar based sauce) and sweet baby rays just didn't fit the bill. The second time I used bone suckin sauce, and it turned out fantastic. I will be making this often.

Feta Cheese and Bacon Stuffed Breasts

Reviewed: Mar. 21, 2011
This was very good and rich. I followed other reviews and marinated it about an hour. I used italian seasoning instead of oregano because I detest oregano. I mixed feta (sheep/goat combo) with crumbled up bacon and stuffed the breasts. 30 minutes later and presto, yummy chicken. I served with white rice. Since this dish is rich, I won't make it often, but I will make again.

There was very little flavor and two cans of sauce made too much liquid.
