Overnight Caramel Pecan Rolls

Reviewed: Jul. 2, 2013
These go to 11!!. Very important note-go easy on heating the butter/brown sugar mixture. I over-did it (even though not to bubbling). You won't notice you've screwed up until you invert the pan after baking and all that gooey goodness sticks to the bottom. Follow the recipe and don't go beyond heating the butter and brown sugar are just melted together - then add the corn syrup. Even with my "problem" of ending up with rather hard carmel, these got rave reviews. Love, love, love this recipe!!

Mayonnaise Biscuits

Reviewed: Apr. 12, 2013
I had never heard of using mayonnaise as an ingredient in bisquits, but oh my how good! I was looking for a quick and easy bisquit recipe on a time crunch and hit the jackpot with this. Thinking about it after, it makes sense -- mayonnaise is just eggs and oil. This went straight into my recipe box.

Creamy White Wine Sauce

Reviewed: Oct. 14, 2012
Good basic recipse, but I have to agree with those that commented on too much salt. Being warned beforehand, I cut the salt down by half and it was still too much for our taste (and we generally don't mind things a little salty). I added some half and half and a dash of sugar to counteract it. The sugar hint is one I learned from my mother - it "calms down" saltiness if you overdo it. Just a a little bit at a time though (by taste) so the sauce doesn't become noticeably sweet. After these corrections it was very good over my seared scallops and linguine pasta! Oh, I also added a clove of garlic, minced - sauteed in the pan in olive oil before adding the other ingredients.

Brown Sugar Meatloaf

Reviewed: Aug. 20, 2012
I love meatloaf and have tried many, MANY recipes from books and cooking sites. This one is really, really good. I sauteed the onions with a clove of minced garlic and added about 1T. worstestershire to the meat mixture. Also added a tsp. of spicy brown mustard to the sauce (spread on top). Don't use a loaf pan - just form the meat mixture into about a 5"x9" mound on a lined cookie sheet.

Easy BBQ Bake

Reviewed: Jun. 30, 2012
Giving this 5 stars because of the sauce, and becaues it's one of the few times I have actually liked bbq chicken breasts. Usually stick to thighs because I like the flavor and texture better for bbq. Since making this I've seen some reviews that might help with glazing -- the only problem I had with this recipe.

New Red Potato Salad

Reviewed: Jun. 29, 2012
Thought I should post a review after using this recipe so many times. This is a very good basic recipe as posted, but I add 1 t. spicy mustard, 1 T. sugar, and 1/2 t. dill weed to make it classicly great (amounts if not doubling/tripling recipe). Huge hit everywhere I take it!

Chicken Marsala

Reviewed: Jun. 9, 2012
Better than in most restaurants, in my opinion. I used half marsala and half chicken broth - no sherry, as I didn't have any and never use it. Borrowing a hint from another reviewer, I added a little cornstarch/water mixure to thicken the sauce. Super delicious chicken marsala!!

Super Easy Stir-Fried Cabbage

Reviewed: Jun. 5, 2012
I have no idea what chinese cooking wine is (and wouldn't try to find it for one dish) so used seasoned rice vinegar instead. Also added a few dashes of red pepper flakes. If you don't think you like cabbage, try this recipe. You will change your mind!!

Russell's Fish Stew

Reviewed: Jun. 3, 2012
I've never tried making a fish stew, but in searching for new and interesting diet-friendly things I found this. Super scrumptious -- so deliciously flavorful, and with just the right amount of spiciness!!! I used tilapia for the fish (had 3 lbs. of it in the freezer), plus added a can of whole baby clams along with the juice. I didn't have sherry, so just used the white wine. Other than that, followed the recipe as written. Read all of the reviews (mostly all positive) and can't quite understand the one that claimed there are too many ingredients for fish stew?? I guess we all have our own tastes, but this is restaurant-quality IMO.

Mexican Rice III

Reviewed: May 10, 2012
Best mexican rice recipe I've tried! The only change I made was using canned tomatoes because I didn't have any fresh ones. Served with chicken enchiladas. Have a couple leftover enchiladas but the rice is gone! I'll be making this again very soon. Thanks!1

Baked Spaghetti Squash with Beef and Veggies

Reviewed: Mar. 25, 2012
Great recipe for a subsitute to high-carb pasta dishes. I added about 6 sliced mushrooms to the veggies and a few shakes of red pepper flakes to the sauce. Also layered (instead of mixing everything together) as follows: small amount of sauce-jsut to cover the bottom, half of the squash, half of the cheese, half remaining sauce, second half of squash, second half of the sauce, second half of the cheese. So super good good!

Barbeque Style Braised Short Ribs

Reviewed: Mar. 6, 2012
Super yummy! Folllowed recipe pretty much exactly as posted and can't think of a thing that could improve it. Served over steamed basmati rice - perfect! Cut large carrots in about 1" slices, as I wasn't sure what "chunks" were. They cooked just right without getting mushy.

Real Chiles Rellenos

Reviewed: Jul. 29, 2011
Fabuloso classic chiles rellenos-my all-time fave Mexican dish. I simplyfy the sauce by just whizzing the mexican stewed tomatoes in food processor without other additions - not needed IMO. Sometimes add some sauteed garlic and onion, but great without too. Also, don't worry if you don't have the combo of cheeses called for in the recipe - just about any mix of chees will work.

Moist Garlic Roasted Chicken

Reviewed: Jul. 4, 2011
I have fresh thyme in my herb garden and was looking for a roast chicken recipe to use it in. Loved the flavor, and the chicken came out very moist and juicy. We like a crispier crust though, so next time I'll stuff everything in the chicken and roast it under a foil tent (my normal method). Thanks for sharing!

Baked Spaghetti

Reviewed: Jul. 3, 2011
This was really good stuff. I started making everything before taking the cottage cheese out of the fridge and seeing that it had gone bad. I sub'd cream cheese mixed with a little sour cream instead. I cut down on the spaghetti after reading other reviews. Used about 10 oz. instead of 16, which was just right. Added some chopped fresh basil to the sauce from my garden. Delish!

Clark Gable Pancakes

Reviewed: May 22, 2011
Super easy, fast and tasty. My only negative comment would be the amount of baking powder. Although the author swears it's correct, I will cut it down next time - just a touch bitter IMO, but still really good overall. Servied with "smashed" sweetened strawberries and whipped cream - yum yum.

Chicken Quesadillas

Reviewed: Feb. 28, 2011
Super good, but need to add a note for those using low-carb tortillas. These work so much better on a grill pan than baked in the oven. I've tried baking them in the oven with and without brushing with oil and/or butter, but the tortillas always come out very hard. Suggestion: Spray a frying pan with veg. oil spray and grill them at med. heat for about 4 min. on both sides -- they turn out tender and crispy. Also recommend sprinkling some cheese on the tortilla before adding the meat mixure, and then the rest of the cheese on top. This helps hold everything together.

Asian Chicken Salad

Reviewed: Jan. 9, 2011
Excellent dressing (do use the sesame oil, add a few dashes of ground ginger and do make extra!!). I added fresh pea pods and mandarin orange slices to the salad ingredients. Here's a great modification that makes the chicken really stand out (instead of bland cooked shredded chicken-yuck). Thinly slice the chicken breasts and lightly coat with a mixture of 1/4 cup each flour & cornstarch, and 1/4 tsp. each of salt, pepper and garlic powder; stir fry on med-high heat till light brown and crispy -- about 8-10 minutes. You will like the results!

Slow Cooker Beef Stew I

Reviewed: Jan. 3, 2011
Stew to die for!!! I used so many of other reviewers' suggestion-too many to mention, which turned out the most scrumptious stew I've ever made. Key improvements that made it great: Brown the floured beef first, use 3 c. beef broth or water/ water/bouillon combo, add Lawry's Beef Stew packet, add 1 cup frozen peas about 10-15 min. before finishing cooking. Prior to finding this recipe, I used only Lawry's Beef Stew packet, following the printed recipe. This recipe (with the tweaks) is soooooo much better.
