Lemon Herb Butter

Reviewed: Aug. 5, 2014
Made it last night. It. Is. Not. A lo-cal delishishness! It was terrific, but boy do I have regrets today! My taste buds deserve a break from no-carbs, no-fat, no-salt, no taste foods 4x a year! Thanks nymbus.

Custard Bread Pudding

Reviewed: Jun. 13, 2014
Here it is - AT LAST!!! I don't need to taste it in my mouth, my brain is doing the tasting based on ingredients. This is the same recipe my mum used ( except she did'nt have a written recipe) and I have been looking for this for a looonnnng time. I even have my sister lookingfor it. Here's what tipped me off. More custard than bread - check, raisins - check. Baked in a "slow" oven forever ( that is more than an hour at 300° ) - check. Wow! I'm going to make some tomorrow and surprise her with it! Bread pudding yay!

Best Cream Of Broccoli Soup

Reviewed: Jun. 12, 2014
I liked Ike (couldnt resist, tho he was b4 my time????) 's review and my curiosity got the better of mr! You can have it real smoothe like pea soup, you can have it textured, you can add spices and heat if you want to sear your tonsils, and you can make it with an undetectible tweak. My only tweak was: substitute one can of fat free evaporated milk for 12 oz (1&1/2 C) of the milk called for. I HAD to do that because I did'nt want the self appointed food police tearing my review apart. It also makes the roux w/butter slightly more acceptable to all the Carrie Nations out in the big brother/sister world. Did I like it??? As my mum used to say "Does a duck swim?"

Fabulous Wet Burritos

Reviewed: May 21, 2014
I like only a hint of hotness to enter my mouth. I prefer that my unscorched tastebuds be able to TASTE the food. This does it. I put a small bowl of chopped chiles and a bottle of hot sauce on the table along with the guacamole and sour cream. Now everyone can eat and enjoy! (I also make sure I have plenty of cold milk on hand in case of accidental flare ups in the mouth). I made this as written, and everyone at the table thought it was great!! So sit back and enjoy "bad food" now and again. Give your taste buds a treat - and have a twinkie for dessert!!!

Special Buttercream Frosting

Reviewed: May 19, 2014
When I took over the frosting making in my family, I was 12. I had watched my mum and all the neighbor ladies make it and did'nt know what the big deal was all about! Of course there were no measurements except for "2lg scoops of Crisco or "fluffo" beat it until it looks fluffy - then start sprinkling in some confec sugar then a little milk -more sugar, more milk until the box (1lb,) was empty. Now 2shakes of salt and 1-2caps (from tha vanilla bottle) of pure vanilla,and finally beat it some more. Choc frosting was made the same way except 2-3Tbsps of cocoa powder was added. Try this recipe as is, and add vanilla or choc. as you like. Thanks for the memories! (This was enough to frost the middle, top and sides of a 8-9in layer cake)

Bacon Clapshot

Reviewed: May 6, 2014
I grew up eating the same treat ( but turnip/rutabegas) was only an occasional addition. Probably because our " Victory Garden " could only grow so much! My siblings and I all called it "Mixed mashed"! Mom frequently stayed with her nannie from Ireland when growing up, and was just as frustrated at the foolish answer to " why do you call it that? " - she died before the real answer was given. Yep my greataunt (the family source for info) revealed that it was her real distaste of carrots! She passed this dislike right on down to her grandaughter. We had turnip frequently, but it never survived our knife wielding family to be cooked. We all loved it pared, sliced kinda thin, salted, and even peppered for the brave, then CHOMP, oh ,we loved it. When I was college age, she finally confessed - "I couldn't choke a carrot down for any amount of money". Well, she raised 5 kids who loved that veggie any way you found it. Now her grandkids (26) and her greatgrands (28) all like the orange and white special mashed potatoes. The only thing added beyond S&P was butter and maybe if we were being good some finely chopped onion. To sum it up - God bless the Irish and the Scots and their inventive ways!!!

Authentic Huevos Rancheros

Reviewed: May 4, 2014
I don't care what you call it - it tasts good! Up to an including today, many felt it was more important to critique the name rather than the food! This seems to be an unhelpful trend. So many critisize the ingredient list not the taste, but the bad for you ingredients! I'm sorry, but I'm sure that All Recipes members already know that a b'fast of deep fried bacon, french toast made with real eggs (vs: egg whites) and cream and white bread is not good for you. This knowledge also includes un-natural foods, low fiber, high carb, anything that tastes good! Thx, Tish

Chef John's Creamy Mushroom Soup

Reviewed: Feb. 27, 2014
It was really wonderful-chef John could hold his head high in any of the Spargl Fests I attended faithfully when I lived in Germany. The seasoning was spot on (tho' I'm not a fan of John's 'essence of life'-cayanne. I have to hold waay back when I use it. I've learned that after searing my taste buds with hot pepper in any form, I'll need to skip the dish. This was NOT too hot -sigh- smile.

Every once in a while we all need a too rich achy teeth sweet. This is it! Has anyone tried a grind of sea salt over the butterscotch chips? My taste buds are tingling as I write!!

Stewed Tomatoes (Gobbledygook)

Reviewed: Dec. 8, 2013
I'm another woman who STILL cannot control the child within. I always thought this dish was a punishment for something I'd done. My mother finally gave up saying she could'nt stand the awful faces I made (they ruined the dish for her and she'd eat anything!) Fast forward 6 decades - Holey moley batman! These taste really good!! Although Mum always put sugar on tomato-anything ( it's a fruit afterall ) I'm pretty sure that she would be perfectly happy with 1/3 C of sugar. in this recipe. Thank you X3!! P.S. I'm pretty sure she's above us all with a satisfied grin on her face.

Clapshot

Reviewed: Oct. 15, 2013
I, and my siblings grew up on this dish. When I would tell my grade school friends, the reaction was " eew, turnip?" So I finally asked my mum what this dish was called she said " my invention". Well, we all loved it even if it didn't have a real name. WhenI was in college, I asked her again. This time the answer was " Nannie ( her grandmother from Ireland) taught me. So, OK. When I once more asked her in my fifties, she said "I like mashed potatoes, and I really love turnip but I don't like carrots at all. So Nannie made this combination so I would "eat those carrots!!" When I became a mother I did the same thing so that I could "eat my carrots", and never let the children know that I didn't like 'em."See what a mother will do for her children?"

Cottage Pudding (Cake for Strawberry Shortcake)

Reviewed: Oct. 14, 2013
This is exactly the one egg cake recipe my mum,then sisters, then me, then my nieces - well, you get the picture - made for our favorite b-day cake! With this cake, cut right from the pan, we'd pour homemade chocolate sauce/syrup or a lemon sauce. Sometimes I'd cook up a batch of pudding and use that for the sauce. I believe the name and the dish is one example of many New England quirkly named items from way back in the day. Ever hear of blueberry slump? Apple pan dowdy? Johnnycake? I think mum's recipe did not even have a heat level or time! Right now I'm salivating at the memory....
