Rhubarb Jam

Reviewed: May 29, 2008
I love Rhubarb, but don't care to mess it up with berries or anything. This jam, with the added orange zest, and I use fresh squeezed orange juice from that orange that I grate, adds that little something special. My daughter loves it so much, she eats it with a spoon. It's too good to waste on bread. I put a drop or two of red food coloring in it, and watch it carefully, as the cooking time is too long. I usually watch it and can tell when it's ready, about 20 minutes after it comes to a boil. Yum !

Old-Fashioned Frozen Vanilla Custard

Reviewed: May 21, 2009
I put this in my Cuisinart Ice Cream Maker. Used 1 cup skim milk and 2 cups cream, 1 cup sugar (probably didn't need the extra 1/3 cup of sugar, but still ok) didn't whip the cream, just added it into the custard mixture. Chilled the cooked mixture overnight in the fridge. So creamy and smooth. Will use this recipe again.

Chocolate Ganache

Reviewed: Jan. 17, 2009
This is by far the very best ganache recipe I have tried from Allrecipes.com, and I have tried several. I usually use 3 cups semi-sweet chocolate chips and 2 cups heavy cream (which is triple the recipe). This will fill and frost a 10 inch 2 layer cake, including a bit of border trim along the edge and bottom that I put through a decorating tube. I usually use this on Groom's cake made with Devil's Food cake and sometimes I whip the ganache after filling the cake to frost it. This makes the chocolate lighter in color, but in no way detracts from the flavor. I have used it straight without whipping and that is just as good and a bit more glossy. I usually put chocolate curls on the top of the cake for a finishing touch. This is a very simple recipe, and always turns out perfect. It's the only one I will use, unless I want the ganache runny, then I will use the Pro Ganache recipe from this sight. It doesn't set as well and is good when you need it to run down edges and around plates that the dessert sits on.

Maria's Cucumber Salad

Reviewed: Jul. 11, 2011
Thank you Sandy for sharing this simple recipe. I love Cucumbers, and usually fix them by adding salt, pepper, Johnny's Seasoning and a tablespoon or two of Rice Vinegar. Your recipe is a very refreshing alternative for me. The fresh squeezed lemon was just right, the Chili powder was unexpected and nobody guessed the seasoning that made it so perfect. No adjustments necessary, the recipe is perfect just the way it's written. I will use this a lot. Already have plans to take it to a BBQ this week end.

French Ham Cheese and Egg Fondue Casserole

Reviewed: Mar. 11, 2009
There is no way to mess up this recipe. No matter what you do, it's still going to be yummy! I needed a recipe to use up 1/2 a loaf of white bread and some deli ham. I had 1/3 loaf of Velveeta, and a chunk of Mozarella, plus some grated Parmesan. I spayed a glass 13x19 with Pam, then put it in the oven with 1/4 cup of butter to melt before adding the rest of the ingredients (didn't add more butter). As someone else said, layers not really necessary. Let it sit 10 minutes after making before putting it into the oven @ 325* (with a glass pan, it will get too dark on the bottom if you set the oven to 350*). We had it for dinner with the Lemon Butter Broccoli from this site, and fresh sliced tomatoes. The cheese was yummy and the eggs made it custardy. Ummmmmm! The whole family loved it!

Chocolate Chip Bran Muffins

Reviewed: May 7, 2007
These are Bran Muffins with a kick. They are moist and tasty, and all the ingredients are ones I have on hand without a trip to the store. I found they are better cooked without being in the paper cups. They tend to stick to the paper, but when cooked without them, with a little shortening to grease the muffin cups, they come right out, don't leave a mess and are moist all the way to the bottom and taste better. A great way to start any morning.

Calzone Rolls

Reviewed: Feb. 19, 2009
Oh YUM! This ones a keeper! I have made Calzone for my family and friends for years. It's a labor of love. Made these last night for dinner. They are so good, and much easier than rolling out 18 rounds of dough for Calzone. I don't know how she fit them into 2 9" pans, I had to use 3. I did use a whole onion, lots of mushrooms, more cheese, and Canadian Bacon instead of Pepperoni. When making Calzone, I usually use Sweet Italian Sausage, so will try that next time, as it would be easier to cut into rolls. These were great with a salad. If I could give it 10 stars, I would. They are that good!

Peach Ice Cream

Reviewed: Sep. 5, 2009
I cut this recipe in half and it still made too much for my icecream maker, so I made the 2nd batch the next day. Not complaining, it was delish! I did cook the milk and eggs as I think it makes it creamier. I will make this again, such a good way to eat fresh peaches!

Deep Fried Oysters

Reviewed: Jan. 23, 2009
This is the first time I have tried to do Oysters. I used cracker crumbs instead of bread crumbs, and it was crispy, but detracted from the oyster taste, so will try it next time with bread crumbs. Also, I didn't use that much oil. I put about an inch in the frying pan, and that worked well. Two tips I would have for next time. Don't over handle the oysters, and when flouring and dipping in the egg and crumbs, handle quickly and don't stack them or let them sit too long. Also, I may have over cooked them. I will keep trying. My Mom used to make them, but as a kid, I didn't like them. Now, decades later, I've developed a taste for them.

Kat's Alfredo Potatoes

Reviewed: Nov. 5, 2008
Tried this recipe for an elegant side dish with Chicken. They stuck to the dish pretty good, even tho it was sprayed well, so you have to watch them on that. We liked them, but I would add maybe a bit more Parmesan than I did. I also covered the dish with foil for the first hour, then removed it for the last 15 minutes, & sprinkled Paprika on top for a little added color.

Fresh Strawberry Upside Down Cake

Reviewed: May 14, 2010
I made this in 2 8" round pans. After cooling, I stacked them like a regular cake and "frosted" it with Cool Whip. Very good, so fresh, and easy. Making it again next week in large quantity for 60 people.

Bean Soup

Reviewed: Apr. 13, 2009
This Bean Soup recipe is da-bomb! I took the advice of Barb Maxwell, the Appalachian Kid and boiled the beans hard for 10 minutes followed by the baking soda to reduce gas. Will try this out on the boys tonight and see if it works. The better the ham bone, the better the soup. Honey Baked ones always turn out best. I added some thyme, garlic and Cumin, + a can of diced tomatoes. Delish!

Bangers and Mash

Reviewed: Jun. 10, 2009
This is obviously a comfort food like Mac & Cheese. Good gravy makes it. If your gravy isn't good, the dish will suffer.

Caramelized Baked Chicken

Very Chocolate Ice Cream

Reviewed: Jul. 25, 2009
This is hands down the best Chocolate Ice Cream I have made. I added 2 whole eggs instead of the 3 egg yolks, mixing it in with the milk and cream before cooking, and didn't measure the chocolate chips, (I figured 2 hands full was enuff). Smooth and creamy, it was wonderful. Will make this again and again.
