Fluffy Pancakes

Reviewed: Oct. 26, 2011
Whipped these up on a whim Sat morning. They were great - and so convenient not to have to have buttermilk on hand.

Mom's Meat Loaf

Reviewed: Apr. 28, 2011
Very pleased with this. I doubled the recipe to make 4 little loaves - but did not double the amount of brown sugar in the glaze, and it was yummy. Easy enough to make during the week after work. It's now my go to recipe for meatloaf.

BBQ Pork for Sandwiches

Reviewed: Dec. 31, 2010
I love pulled pork and never knew I could make it at home, without a big smoke pit in the backyard! I used a 3 lb boneless pork shoulder. It was in the crock pot for 10 hrs on low, since I was gone that long - I think 8 or 9 hrs would have been great. It was so easy to shred with a fork, and easy to remove the fat at the same time. Finished in the oven with the Sweet Baby Rays. I lightly buttered some large bakery hamburger buns and set them under the broiler just until they were toasty. Piled on the meat, added a slice of oinion and a few dill pickle slices. Served with cole slaw and french fries. My husband said it was the best pork sandwich he'd ever had. Wasn't sure how my friend's 11 year daughter would like it, but she ate the entire sandwich in no time and reported it great. Thanks so much for posting this recipe. I will definitely be making this again and again!

Southern Style Thanksgiving Green Beans

Reviewed: Sep. 20, 2010
I omitted the onion but otherwise followed this to a T. Used the washed and trimmed green beans in the package in the produce section to save some time. These were the best green beans I've ever made - now I know that the very long cooking time is the key. They were just great, and couldn't have been easier!

Raisin Apple Muffins

Reviewed: Sep. 5, 2010
Looking for something to have with our coffee one weekend morning, and I had everything on hand for these. I followed other's suggestion and doubled the cinnamon in the batter, which I'm glad I did. I think next time I'll try adding a little sour cream to the batter to increase the moistness and density, like my favorite banana bread recipe. I made 24 mini muffins - baked about 12 min. I would call these apple raisin muffins, because the apples are definitely the star, and I didn't really notice the raisins. Maybe increasing the amount of raisins would add a little chewiness. All in all, a tasty quick recipe.

Banana Crumb Muffins

Reviewed: Nov. 9, 2009
I thought these were great. I only had 1 good sized banana, so I halved the recipe to make 3 muffins in my jumbo muffine tin. Lowered baking temp to 350 and baked about 24 min. They were yummy!

Green 'N' Gold Veggies

Reviewed: Apr. 30, 2009
Always looking for a new veggie side, and this is good. I used fresh green beans in the microwaveable plastic bag in the produce section. I followed the directions to microwave, then chopped the beans in half. Very little thawing is needed for the corn - it cooks pretty quickly once added to the skillet. The seasoning blend is a nice change from the usual.

No Time to Cook Chicken

Reviewed: Apr. 30, 2009
What an easy way to get a start on a comfort food dinner. I seasoned the chicken with salt and a good amount of fresh ground black pepper. I cooked at low for a little less than 8 hrs. The chicken was moist and very tender. I served with dressing, cranberry sauce,and the green and gold veggies from this site. A very comfort food type dinner without the investment of time or effor. I am going to try this method to prepare chicken to be used in enchiladas. I think I'll just use chicken broth and a little tomatillo sauce for flavor and let it cook all day - it should make the shredding much faster!

Pasta Primavera with Italian Turkey Sausage

Reviewed: Apr. 17, 2009
Made this last night after work, and it was wonderful! The fresh basil is key. The dish is so fresh, delicious, and beautiful. I made it as written, but think you could easily substitue chicken, shrimp, or salmon for the turkey sausage. I served with a salad and a crusty French baguette. Easy, elegant excellance!

Salisbury Steak

Reviewed: Feb. 17, 2009
SO EASY and yummy - a real comfort meal. I followed the suggestions of others and omited the ketchup and doubled the remaining sauce ingredients. Served with mashed potatoes and green beans almondine. A great homecooked meal that couldn't be easier. It was just as good as leftovers!

Sweet, Sticky and Spicy Chicken

Reviewed: Feb. 17, 2009
Such an easy weeknight dinner, with a nice zip. Was tempted to flour the chicken as one reviewer suggested, but decided to follow the recipe exactly and my husband agreed it was delicious. Served with veggie fried rice. Thanks for a simple and tasty recipe!

Country Manor Breakfast Tart

Reviewed: Oct. 5, 2008
This breakfast tart was not difficult to make, and it was an elegant and sophisticated change from the usual breakfast egg dishes. The cream cheese added richness and the fresh herbs and almonds were the perfect finishing touches. I used more ham since I omitted the bacon - I was serving candied bacon as a side. I will increase the amount of nutmeg next time - maybe doubling it, since I couldn't detect the nutmeg flavor in the end. I made this for a brunch and the adults and even an 11 year old boy loved it. I am adding this to my "one day when I have a B and B" list!

Orange Pumpkin Loaf

Reviewed: Oct. 5, 2008
I made this for the first time this weekend for a fall brunch. It was wonderful! I substituted sweetened dried cranberries instead of raisins for more of a holiday look and flavor. The orange is a wonderful addition to the pumpkin - gives it a brighter and fresher taste. I'm making another loaf to take to work tomorrow, if it makes it out of the house...

Couscous with Chickpeas and Carrots

Reviewed: Aug. 5, 2008
I served this with cedar plank grilled salmon and sauteed zuchinni with basil and parmesan. When the other dishes have strong flavors it's nice to have a side dish that doesn't over power, but is still tasty. 10 oz of couscous is a lot, so next time I would use a whole onion and a little more garlic. I used about 1/2 tsp salt. I think the fresh parsley is important for flavor and color, so don't skimp on it.

Coconut Cream Pound Cake

Reviewed: Jun. 26, 2008
This is a fabulous cake! I read some concerns from others about the crust being hard. What I remember about my grandmother's sour cream pound cake was the wonderful crusty outside and the moist, dense inside. This brought back many memories! I would have liked to use dessicated coconut, but couldn't find any right away, so I pulsed the 2 cups of flaked coconut in the food processor until it was medium fine. I did bake it about 5 min more than called for. The only other change I made was when I inverted the cake onto a plate, I poured about 2 tablespoons of rum over the bottom and let that soak in. This is now one of my favorite cakes, and it is so easy to make!

Cheesy Egg Casserole

Reviewed: Apr. 17, 2008
My husband and coworkers enjoyed this. I followed the suggestion in the reviews and added an additional 1/2 cup of milk and 4 eggs. I did have to increase the cooking time by about 20 min. or so. I also added some green chilis (2 whole canned chilis, chopped) for flavor and color. So easy to make - another keeper for breakfast.

Fruit Pizza II

Reviewed: Mar. 16, 2007
This is a show stopping dessert. Once the first piece was cut, it went in a flash. I used the mixture of 8 oz cream cheese and 7 oz jar of marshmallow cream as others did. The glaze not only adds flavor, it gives it the finishing touch that you would expect if you purchased this from a gourmet shop. I baked the dough about 15 minutes, and will increase that the next time. The crust softens up once the cream and fruit sit on it for a while - so I think it might be better to over bake it a little. I love this dessert, and so does my office!

Swiss Steak Quick and Easy

Reviewed: Oct. 24, 2006
This had great flavor and was easy to prepare. It has a real comfort food feel. I made it on a weeknight after work, and we still ate at a reasonable time! I used diced tomatoes instead of stewed because it's what I had in the pantry. My husband kept saying "this is really good..." while he ate :)

Baked Miniature Pumpkins

Reviewed: Oct. 16, 2006
I followed the Barefoot Contessa's suggestion and filled these with homemade applesauce and baked for about an hour. The pumpkin flesh was tender and delicious with all the flavor of the applesauce. My guests got such a kick out of them - they are perfect for a beautiful fall table!

German Chocolate Cake III

Reviewed: Aug. 22, 2006
Germann Chocolate cake is my husband's favorite and I make one for his bday every year. I haven't found one that doesn't fall apart, including this one. I increased the chocolate to 6 oz per other reviews. The cake was delicious - he loved it. The only problem was that the layers cracked as soon as I assembled them, even though I let them cool for several hours first. The filling/topping was a little thin, but I was able to keep plenty of it on the top, even though a good amount slid down the sides and pooled at the bottom. Again, the cake tasted great - I just wish I could find a Germann Choc cake recipe that didn't fall apart. I don't have this problem with any other cake - including a 3 layer Italian Cream cake I make that also has egg whites in it...??
