Pork Fried Rice

Reviewed: Feb. 24, 2008
I followed the recipe to a T, and loved the results! Very tasty, and for once, I felt good about enjoying my pork fried rice! An excellent way to use left over pork chops or loin. Looking forward to making again!

Truck-Stop Buttermilk Pancakes

Reviewed: Nov. 15, 2008
**Update: I had been thinking about these pancakes ever since I made them last weekend, but I didn't have enough buttermilk to make more. I finally broke down this morning and tried them using half buttermilk-half milk/vinegar. Although the texture and appearance was the same as the original, I just didn't think that the taste compared! I also don't care for these after they've been frozen, so I'll have to scale the recipe way back to make only what we need. I love freezing the Pumpkin Pancakes recipe from this site, but it seemed like the taste of these pancakes changed after freezing!** I was looking for a pancake recipe that would make me think I was spending my morning at Cracker Barrel. My husband says that they don't necessarily taste like Cracker Barrel's (although I think they're pretty close!), but he did say that they are definitely five star! I really think that using buttermilk is the key (not a substitute). We'll definitely be making these again! Oh- I only made a third of the recipe, and it made at least 15 5-inch pancakes!

Diane's Colcannon

Reviewed: Oct. 10, 2006
YUM! My husband's not a fan of cabbage, but was happy to eat this...plus seconds...and thirds! I had never even heard of this dish before, but I'm so happy that I tried it!

Taqueria Style Tacos - Carne Asada

Reviewed: Jun. 14, 2008
Five stars for the marinade - we didn't use the relish or salsa recipes. My husband really enjoyed this, and we're looking forward to trying it again and again and varying different ingredients to best suite our tastes. Really great as is, though! Oh - my husband grilled our flank steak, and it was perfect...I think that we'll stick with grilling it.

Brown Sugar Brownies

Reviewed: Apr. 23, 2007
My husband requested the "Butterscotch Brownies" he remembered from years ago. I had never heard of them, but found many recipes for them here, including this great recipe. These were excellent, in my opinion. My ideal dessert - I ate half the pan in a blink of the eye! If you don't care for sweet, rich, heavy treats, these may not be for you. Kind of taste like a buttery, dense and chewy chocolate chip cookie minus the chocolate chips. I had to put my baby to sleep, so I set the timer for 25 minutes and had my husband take them out. Had I been there to check them, I would have baked them a bit longer...although I generally like things not-quite-baked-enough, these are rich and chewy enough that underbaking isn't necessary to acheive that texture. A must try!

Soft Oatmeal Cookies

Reviewed: Jun. 12, 2008
Makes an excellent oatmeal raisin cookie! I think that my search is over - I'll happily make these again and again. Note: I remove my cookies from the oven the second that they look just baked enough, and even I had to bake these much longer than the 8-10 minutes stated.

Reviewed: Jun. 8, 2008
I love being able to make something from scratch instead of buying it! This recipe passed the test. Thanks so very much!

Oatmeal Waffles

Reviewed: Jun. 7, 2008
Very easy, tasty and moist - can be used as waffles or pancakes. I use King Arthur whole wheat white flour for added nutrition. Thanks!

Caramel Bars

Reviewed: Jul. 25, 2007
Very good, very easy. The most involved step in unwrapping caramels, and the rest is simple and quick! Very yummy...especially after they have totally cooled. I made them in an 8x8 pan, which made a nice, thick bar. Seems like a 13x9 pan would make them much too thin. I added about a half cup of coconut to the crumble mixture - excellent!! I've already made them again. They disappear VERY quickly!

Mrs. Sigg's Snickerdoodles

Reviewed: Aug. 5, 2007
I've been making this same recipe since I was a child! Cookies have a great taste, and always look nice. Take them out of the oven while still puffy (I bake for 10 minutes for oven), and allow them to sit on the pan for a few minutes after baking. Cookies will flatten a bit, but still look nice and stay very chewy after cooling. I halved the amount of cinnamon simply because I don't like the darker color that the full amount gives the cookies. I used parchment paper on my pan and had no problems with the bottoms browing too much. If you're looking for a tasty, chewy, bakery-like Snickerdoodle recipe, feel confident in using this one! One batch made 26 medium-sized cookies.

Tomato Florentine Soup I

Reviewed: Jan. 19, 2006
I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE this soup! On top of that, it's so healthy...you can't lose. Perfect paired with a green salad. **The first time I made it, I thought it was a little bland. From then on, I added 1/4 tsp. crushed red pepper, and it helps SO much! I use acini de pepe pasta, and it works so well. We will make this for years to come!!

Black Bean and Couscous Salad

Reviewed: May 29, 2008
A very healthy and great-tasting recipe that I'm looking forward to making again. It's the first time that I've had a couscous recipe that didn't taste dry. Would make a great picnic or BBQ dish for a crowd! (I'd at least double it for a crowd, though.)

Hot Artichoke and Spinach Dip II

Reviewed: Aug. 19, 2007
Creamy, yummy...just great! We add a few dashes of hot sauce just to give it a bit of a kick, but it's not hot by any means. Definitely give this one a try!

Absolute Best Pancake Syrup

Reviewed: May 18, 2008
I was hoping to find a recipe to replace store-bought syrup, and I think we've found a winner! Keep in mind, this really doesn't taste at all like typical pancake syrup, but it does taste wonderful. To me, the syrup tastes like I put some iced cinnamon rolls in a food processor and pureed them! Be careful to use a big enough pot -- mine was fairly small, and barely contained all of the foam that is produced when the baking soda is added at the end. We used this recipe with the Grain and Nut Whole Wheat Pancakes recipe from this site - will be a definite repeat combo in the future!

Lemon Coconut Squares

Reviewed: May 15, 2008
Everyone agreed that this was a 5* recipe, even my husband who doesn't like desserts much. My mom and I both commented that the only thing that would make it more special would be to drizzle them with a raspberry sauce prior to serving. Can't wait to try!

A Very Popular BBQ Sauce

Reviewed: Apr. 26, 2008
After realizing at the last minute that we were out of BBQ sauce, I used this recipe in for the grilled bacon-wrapped barbecued shrimp that we made tonight. It was great! We really enjoyed it, and I love having another recipe that I can use in the place of a store-bought product! Unlike some of the other recipes, this one used ingredients that you're likely to have on hand. After a quick mix and boil, we were ready to roll. Thanks so much!

Sandy's Chocolate Cake

Reviewed: Mar. 2, 2008
I only used the cake recipe, but it was excellent! I feel like a lot of from-scratch cake recipes end up being too dry, but this was wonderful. My husband commmented that this was the best chocolate cake he had ever eaten, and I'd have to agree! I'm not a huge super-chocolatey fan, so I used a vanilla buttercream to fill the layers and lightly frost the outside. Then I made a chocolate ganache that ran over the top and sides, and shaved white chocolate on top. I will absolutely be making the cake again. I think I'd better go have another piece right now!

Barbecued Beef

Reviewed: Feb. 24, 2008
I've made this recipe SO many times, and it's a hit every time! I usually use a bit less liquid smoke, but other that I wouldn't change a thing! Excellent make-ahead dish to serve a crowd, and you can enjoy your guests!

The Best Meatballs

Reviewed: Feb. 24, 2008
We LOVE these meatballs! I made them exactly as stated, only sustituting milk for the water. Well worth effort - excellent with "Best Marinara Sauce Yet"! Will be a family staple for years to come!
