Butter Fried Parsnips

Reviewed: Jun. 17, 2004
I loovvved them. Probably not the healthiest way to eat veggies, ... but who cares! I left off the flour, cause I semi-low carbing. Brought me back to my childhood when Grandma used to make 'em. Thanks!

Butternut Squash Soup

Reviewed: Mar. 6, 2010
Butternut squash soup is so versatile it's hard to mess up, but here are my suggestions after many, many times using this recipe. Halve and roast the squash with the 1/2 onion (quartered), 1 carrot (1/2 inch slides), 1 apple (peeled/cored/quartered) and 2 garlic cloves for 45 min. Use chicken broth (reduced sodium) instead of water/bouillon, cut cream cheese to about 4 oz. Add a few pinches each of ground curry and ground ginger with the chicken broth. Stir in 1/2 c. half and half or milk just before serving.

Speedy Homemade Salsa

Reviewed: Mar. 3, 2010
Great salsa!! I forgot to add salt and was going to stir it in, but decided it didn't need it after tasting it. Used 1/2 T. cider vinegar and juice of half a lime. You might be surprised at my secret ingredient until you taste the result -- squeeze in the juice of about 1/4 of an orange (for this amount of salsa). Learned this hint from a local Mexican joint that has the BEST salsa I've ever tasted.

Mom's Chicken Cacciatore

Reviewed: Jan. 31, 2010
Followed the recipe mostly to the tee. Only need one cup of flour though. I used a 4 1/2 lb. chicken and 1 c. was plenty. I added the minced garlic toward the end of sauteing the onions/peppers cause I'm always afraid of burning it.

Spanish Rice II

Reviewed: Jan. 24, 2010
Excellente! Hint - if you rinse the rice before sauteing, it will stay moist and will not get crusty. I used others' suggestions and sub'd bacon grease for the oil, and used low-salt chicken broth instead of water. Didn't have the tomato/green chili tomatoes so just used regular diced tomatoes. Also added about 1/2 t. cumin, and reduced chili powder to 1 t.

Downeast Maine Pumpkin Bread

Reviewed: Dec. 27, 2009
Don't know what else I can add to so many rave reviews, except another 5 stars! Made mine adding a bag of chocolate chips. So, so, so scrumptious. Thank you!!

Potato Salmon Patties

Reviewed: Oct. 3, 2009
These were so tasty. I didn't have celery salt, so I added about 2 T. finely chopped celery. The only other change I made was omitting the seasoned bread crumbs - instead, I coated the patties in seasoned panko bread crumbs before frying them. I served them with coleslaw. They didn't need any sauce in my opinion.

Toffee Bars

Reviewed: Aug. 24, 2009
I'm so glad I found this recipe. My mother used to make these every Christmas, but it's been 10 years since she passed away and I'd almost forgotten about them. This is a perfect combination of sweet, crumbly, chocolaty goodness -- everyone loves them. I followed the recipe exactly, but doubled it for a large group. I used a large cookie sheet (jelly roll pan), and they came out about about 1/2" thick with the chocolate bar topping. I'm going to re-start the Christmas tradition beginning this year!

Easy Salsa Meatloaf

Reviewed: Jun. 14, 2009
Super good. I was a bit skeptical -- never thought of this combination for meatloaf. I rarely stray from my regular meatloaf recipe passed down from my mother, but I had all the ingredients on hand so decided to give this a try. Very tasty! I even overcooked it by about 15 minutes because I had gone out for a walk, and had forgotten to wait until it was finished. It was still moist, with just a little crust around the outside. I'll make this again for sure. Thanks!

E-Z Drop Biscuits

Reviewed: Mar. 17, 2010
I forgot to buy bread to serve with my corned beef and cabbage paddy's day dinner, so I needed to find something I could make quickly. This was my first experience making biscuits from scratch, so I was a bit nervous about the outcome. Wow, they turned out fantastic! Took others' advice and left out the cream of tartar. I added a few shakes each of garlic and onion powder, and 1/2 c. shredded cheddar cheese. These turned out so buttery and flavorful - my only regret is that I didn't double the batch! I will be making these again soon. Thank you!!

Famous Pork Chops

Reviewed: Jun. 3, 2009
Such pork chops! I was afraid of them being too salty with the addition of garlic salt to the Ritz crackers, but I decided to trust the recipe and it was no problem. I added a few shakes of onion powder to the cracker mix too. Also follow the suggestion of some others and broiled on one side for a few minutes to get crispy. They were still very moist and delicious, even though I thought my chops were a bit on the thin side. This will probably be my standard recipe for pork chops from now on.

Kielbasa with Peppers and Potatoes

Reviewed: Apr. 2, 2009
Very good. I sauteed the veggies (plus onions) seasoned with garlic salt and pepper first, and browned the sausage separately. Then put everything together to finish cooking. Too much stuff to get nice and brown in a pan at the same time.

Cinnamon Swirl Bread

Reviewed: Jan. 2, 2009
The best!! My mother used to bake such excellent cinnamon bread when I was growing up, but unfortunately, I didn't get her recipe before she passed away. This is the first I've tried that matched hers. I use an extra tablespoon of melted butter and a bit more cinnamon & sugar for the filling. I also leave off the icing. Thank you, thank you (from my whole family)!

Grilled Salmon II

Reviewed: Dec. 31, 2008
One of the best marinades for salmon I've ever tried - the perfect amount of sweetness and zest without overpowering the fish. I only had about 2 1/2 hours to let the salmon marinade last night, but it turned out terrific anyway. Next time I'll go for the full 4-6 hours, and I'm sure it will be even more scrumptious!

Fabulous Homemade Bread

Reviewed: Aug. 10, 2008
I'm pretty new to bread-making, so I was glad this turned out so well. I wasn't sure how long to knead (I don't have a Kitchenaid), and wheat dough is sticky to work with. I was afraid I was working in too much flour, so I only kneaded for 5 minutes or so. I did have to throw out the first batch because the oil I used was old, and the bread tasted rancid (luckily I had cut the recipe in half). In the next batch I substituted margerine for the oil, and added about 1/4c honey for a little more sweetness. I might try some of the other suggested variations too next time. One more comment - I don't think the recipe as written makes 6 loaves (unless they are very small). I made two normal-sized loaves from 1/2 of the recipe. Yummy good.

Dog Treats I

Reviewed: Aug. 9, 2008
My pug loves these. He's a little picky about his treats, so I'm glad to have found this. So much cheaper than store-bought too. I had some bacon grease in the pan from breakfast, so I used that instead of the margerine. I'm going to make some more next week for my friends with doggies.

Barbecued Beef Ribs for Two

Reviewed: Jun. 22, 2008
We LOVE barbeque, and this is the best way to do beef ribs. I do add some seasoning to the water for simmering - 2 cloves minced garlic & about 2 tsp. onion powder. May not be necessary, but habit I guess. I also sometimes use my favorite bottled BBQ sauce when I'm in a hurry. The meat just falls off the bones. Delicious!! Update -- definitely double the sauce. The original recipe does not yield enough to cover the ribs.
