Foil Barbecued Trout with Wine

Reviewed: May 18, 2007
Yum!!! I mixed all the ingredients (I added garlic) together and then put the solid portion of the mixture into the filets and poured the remaining (mostly liquid) over the top and let it pool around the fish and then bbq'd it on low. Turned out awesome. I think the key is to use the freshest fish possible.

Homemade Sweet Italian Sausage (Mild or Hot)

Reviewed: Mar. 27, 2011
This is awesome! I'll never buy premade Italian Sausage again. I left out the brown sugar - don't know if I missed it or not but I take out processed sugars of all my recipes. I did however, put raw honey in as a replacement (don't measure how much). I also added a bit of olive oil to it while mixing just to make it a little more moist. It worked!

Dill Pickles

Reviewed: Jul. 27, 2009
I tried making them as the recipe was written but processed them in the canner for 7 minutes. The flavor was great, but they were very soft. So, today, I retried them and made some changes. I spoke to a woman who has canned for probably 50 years and she told me both her and her daughter put grape leaves in the jars. Her daughter processes them in a canner, but she does not. She doesn't refrigerate them during storage. She said - they're pickles, right? Makes sense since that's how they are made in big pickle barrels. Grape leaves (any kind) have something in them that breaks down the enzyme that makes pickles soft. I also read many places on the internet to cut off the blossom end really well and cut or scrape off any remaining blossom stub. This supposedly is the source for the enzyme that makes the pickles soft......4 months later, I have been using a batch that I didn't water bath. They are AWESOME! and haven't had problems with them spoiling. DON'T water bath them. Turn jars upside down if you have problem getting them to seal.

Simple Whole Wheat Bread

Reviewed: Oct. 8, 2008
This is an awesome recipe. I use molasses instead of honey. It seemed to rise better and give a better flavor. I used 4 cups wheat and 1 cup white in the first step. I make this constantly. I've actually stopped buying any bread because of this recipe. My kids devour it and I make it for about 65 cents a loaf.

Purple Cow Smoothie

Reviewed: Jun. 28, 2006
Yum! I think next time I'll add more grape soda and less milk for a little more grape flavor. My kids just gulped it down.

Fast and Easy French Onion Dip

Reviewed: May 17, 2006
I like the recipe the way it's written and with some of the suggested changes. It's much better than what I can buy and I usually have all these ingredients on hand, so I can make it when I want instead of having to get it on my grocery list.

Homemade Pork Sausage

Reviewed: Mar. 27, 2011
Yummy! I left out the brown sugar, but instead added pure maple syrup (didn't measure how much) and added some olive oil to the mixture to make it a bit more moist. No more pre-made breakfast-type sausage again for us!!!

Whole Egg Mayonnaise

Reviewed: Dec. 29, 2009
Wow, this is terrific. The taste is so fresh. I only used 1 1/2 cups of canola oil. It tasted a little oily, so I put about 1TBSP of sugar in it. That made it perfect. Update: Now I use olive oil

Whole Wheat Seed Bread

Reviewed: Jul. 14, 2009
LOVE THIS BREAD! I make it as it's written. I've changed this to be my regular bread recipe that I use for sandwhiches and then shaped differently with toppings for a meal type bread. It does make a lot. When I rise it in the sun I get 3 loaves in medium sized pans and 1 log-shaped free form loaf. I love that it's whole wheat, no white flour and it's not too dense. It did take me a while to perfect it. If it's not perfect the first time, keep trying.

Caramel-Glazed Flan

Reviewed: Jan. 27, 2008
I made this for the first time for an authentic, everything homemade dinner party for 13 people. It was fantastic. I put the ingredients in a muffin pan instead of a larger pan. Turned out perfect. Everyone was so impressed and loved it. I followed the directions exactly and didn't change anything except the pan size and the cooking and cooling times because of that.

Authentic Enchiladas Verdes

Reviewed: Aug. 10, 2006
This is great tasting. I omitted the serranos and substituted canned diced green chiles. I also omitted the onions in the final step - my family doesn't prefer raw onions. I put cheese inside as well as on top and I substituted a combo of cheddar and mozarella cheese. I will definately make again.

A Very Popular BBQ Sauce

Reviewed: Jun. 28, 2006
Not what I really like in a sauce. I was looking for more of what I term "traditional" - more like a BBQ potato chip. This was a little sweet for us.

Chai Tea Mix

Reviewed: Sep. 21, 2011
This is awesome. I don't put the creamers in, but follow the rest of the recipe as written. When I serve the tea, I mix Heavy Whipping Cream in at the end.

Peppy's Pita Bread

Reviewed: Sep. 30, 2010
This turned out awesome! They puffed up and were perfect in 4 minutes. I used fresh ground whole wheat soaked flour for a change, and they were great, even with whole wheat.

Perfect Berry Shortcakes

Reviewed: Apr. 27, 2009
I ended up using whipping cream instead of half and half because that's all I had. These were yummy!

Sweet Restaurant Slaw

Reviewed: Jul. 29, 2008
I didn't buy coleslaw mix, I just used shredded cabbage and carrots. My husband normally DETESTS coleslaw so I only make it once a year. He added a bit of hot sauce to his portion and I couldn't believe that he had 2 portions and said "your coleslaw is actually pretty good"! That makes it a winner for me.

Sweet Corn Cake

Reviewed: Jan. 27, 2008
Tasted awesome. But don't do like I did and try to put it into mini-muffin pan to try and have molded littled cakes. It's too soft for that, and it should be that. So, it looke messy when I took them out, but that didn't matter after we tasted it. Didn't change a thing; I cooked the recipe as written.

Easy Strawberry Lemonade

Reviewed: Sep. 2, 2007
Perfect - so easy, so yummy. I'm tainted though - will never order it at a restaurant again knowing how easy it can be. I used fresh strawberries that I had frozen and broken into chunks.

Mexican Pork Chops

Reviewed: Jun. 21, 2006
Not the most amazing dish I've ever made, but good enough to make it into my occasional rotation. I added cumin & chile powder. I used frozen corn instead of canned.
