Glazed Chicken Wings

Reviewed: Mar. 22, 2007
I love this recipe. 1) I seasoned my wings with garlic powder, onion powder and a little seasoning salt. 2) I baked the wings at 400 degrees for 45 minutes on one side and then turned them over and cooked them for another 45 minutes on the other side, ( I like my wings baked crispy, not soggy). 3) Then I mixed together the honey, bbq sauce and a 1/4 cup of soy sauce in a bowl and coat the wings one by one using a spoon to mix the wings in the sauce. I returned the wings to the pan and cook an additional 20 minutes. Excellent texture and taste for me. It sounds like a lot of work but it is not. I usually make about 20 wings. Thanks for the recipe. Oh and F.Y.I when you bake chicken coat the pan with olive oil, I use 3-4 tbsp of olive oil, so that the chicken does not stick the my pan.

Fluffy Pancakes

Reviewed: Feb. 25, 2007
I followed the recipe exactly and I added about 3 tbsp of eggo syrup into the batter. My pancakes were light and crispy. They were not dry. When you add the melted shortening with cold milk, you will see little lumps, that's fine. After you cook the pancake those lumps will go away. This recipe is the one I am sticking with from this site. My 2 yr old actually asked for more. EXCELLENT!!

Southwestern Egg Rolls

Reviewed: Aug. 22, 2007
I love the taste of these egg rolls. I bought a package of Pictsweet brand authentic mexican seasoned corn and black beans (which had onions, red & green bell pepper already in it) in place of most of the veggies in this recipe. Absolutely great. I will not fry them the next time, even though it was great, just trying to cut fat as much as possible. I will definitely make this often.

Buffalo Chicken Wings III

Reviewed: Jan. 17, 2008
WHO would have thought of using tomato sauce on hot wings??? This recipe was excellent. I used a can of tomato sauce instead of 3/4 c. I used some wings that I had overcooked the day before. I heated all ingredients in a big pot and then added the wings. I coated all the wings and then I served them. I did not put the wings in the oven after coating them with the sauce. FYI using a can of tomato sauce tends to make a thicker sauce. My dry overcooked wings were very good after I coated them in this sauce. I did not taste a tomato flavor at all, which was great, because I'm not a tomato fan. I will make this often and use maybe a 1/2 c of tomato sauce with more hot sauce. Oh and I only used 2 tsps of butter. Thank you for this recipe.

Another great recipe. I did not use basil. I used dried parsley and dried thyme to my liking about 2 tsps each. This recipe is easy to prepare. Perfect, I will make this often. Thanks.

Carrot Cake III

Reviewed: Jul. 24, 2008
This is an excellent recipe. I used 1 cup white sugar and 1 cup brown sugar. I used walnuts instead of pecans and I added a 1/4 tsp nutmeg. I used non-stick cake pans and used crisco SPRAY. I did not grease or flour cake pans, just sprayed with crisco spray. I mixed all my dry ingredients together and then added it to the batter. I hand grated my carrots for a finer texture. Making another one today. The cream cheese frosting is Perfect.

Quick and Almost-Professional Buttercream Icing

Reviewed: Dec. 24, 2008
Wow. This is a great icing. I followed recipe exactly and it made my cake taste even better. I made a little einsteins cake for my daughter's birthday and froze the frosted cake in a cardboard box 2 weeks prior. I used a color paste to color the icing and it was perfect!! I am letting my kids decorate their own cake using this icing. Also, use REAL BUTTER like land o lakes. DO NOT use shortening or margarine. Wonderful!!!

Salisbury Steak

Reviewed: Mar. 12, 2009
I used 1 pkg of ground turkey 85/15. I DID NOT use the egg,ketchup, water, worcesershire or mustard powder. What I did was made the patties as it is written in step 1 but without the egg. Then I used the remaining of french onion soup mixed with a half jar of brown gravy. To make it thick I made a paste out of 1 tbsp of flour and added a little water to the flour until it was moist and looked like paste. Then I stirred the flour paste in the gravy. Covered and cooked for about 20 minutes. Always add water to flour when you add it to a sauce, if you do not, then your sauce will have "flour balls" little balls of flour. This is a very easy recipe. We love it. I make it once a week at least. Thanks Kelly!!

Chili I

Reviewed: Dec. 1, 2009
The perfect chili for MY taste buds. I used 1 tbsp of veg oil, 1 can of kidney beans and GROUND TURKEY instead of beef. The chili is not thick, which makes it perfect over a slice of cornbread or with corn chips or my fave NACHOS. I don't call this a thick and chunky chili but just a perfect chili for people like me. I don't like a lot of stuff in chili, ex: chili meat, grease, beer or chunky stuff. Since I used turkey, I made sure to add more spices to the chili, like seasoning salt, onion powder and cayenne pepper. My kids like it and my husband and I loved it. You can thicken this chili by using a mixture of (1 tsp) flour and a little bit of water to make a paste and then add it to the chili. If you just add flour without water, you will probably have "flour balls" or streaks of flour that will be hard to get rid of. Keep in mind if you add a flour and water mixture, make sure to add more spices. Also use as much flour and water paste as needed for your desired thickness. I think the chili recipe the way it is written is PERFECT!! Enjoy!!

Mother's Pot Roast

Reviewed: Jan. 6, 2010
EASY!! I used olive oil instead of cooking spray, 8 oz of tomato sauce and 1 cup prego spaghetti sauce. I seasoned with garlic powder, onion powder, seasoning salt and bay leaf. My FROZEN bottom round roast (pot roast) came out nice and moist. I did not make gravy, I just put the sauce over each serving and ate it. I cooked it for 9 hours on low. ADDING seasonings or spices is a must. Loved it!!

Beef Nacho Casserole

Reviewed: Aug. 25, 2010
I love it. I use ground turkey instead of beef. I use a half of jar of taco sauce instead of salsa and 1/4 cup of miracle whip. I add cumin, onion powder, garlic powder and chili powder because ground turkey requires a lot more seasoning than beef. I serve this with salad on the side or a vegetable. Yum.

Golden Rum Cake

Reviewed: Aug. 25, 2010
EXCELLENT!! I will not make this cake again because I ate almost half of it. I used pecans instead of walnuts. To me, this is one of the best and easiest cakes to make. I decided to use 1/4 cup of rum instead of a 1/2 cup of rum, it came out perfect. I will make this for holidays. Again, EXCELLENT!!!

The Best Chicken Enchilada Soup

Reviewed: Sep. 9, 2010
We love it. It is not grainy from masa harina because this recipe uses corn tortillas. It is not a thick soup but it has a very nice flavor. I did add chili powder, onion powder, garlic powder, cumin and salt in replace of the seasonings in this recipe. I also used a can (10 oz) of enchilada sauce instead of salsa. The 2nd time I made this recipe I doubled it. My family ate it up. Oh I almost forgot..I served my soup with thin tortilla chips like tia rosa or mission, they are great with this soup.

Buttercream Icing

Reviewed: Mar. 2, 2011
I love this recipe. It's easy to make, tastes great and looks perfect on my (wilton) doll cakes. I made the recipe as is, my shortening was butter flavored and I used a 1/2 cup of butter. I was able to pipe flowers on the doll cake as well as frost it. Perfect!! BIG THANKS!!

Janet's Rich Banana Bread

Reviewed: Mar. 24, 2011
I divided the batter into 2 small square pans and baked in a convection oven. I could hardly wait for this bread to cool. My bread was ready in 12 minutes. I drizzled a RUM glaze over the slices as I served the bread. It was great without the rum glaze, but I want a glaze over the servings. Also I used 3 black bananas. I can not wait to make this bread again. Excellent!!
