Had leftover grilled chicken & 8 oz. of plain cooked fettuccine noodles. Made this sauce and put it all together WOW!! Marinated some cukes in an Asian dressing for a side dish and that was a simple summer meal. DH & me loved it!! Thanks - very delicious!!!

Crookneck Squash and Tomatoes

Reviewed: Aug. 27, 2006
Followed recipe exactly. Had squash and tomatoes from our garden. We like to try all kinds of different recipes, but this one didn't go over as we thought. Beautiful presentation, not crazy for the flavor.

Basic Microwave Risotto

Reviewed: Jun. 28, 2006
Fantastic! It is true, I do put off making risotto most times because it is somewhat time consuming. This was perfect! I sauteed boneless chicken breasts and made a Tomato Rosemary Sauce from the back of the College Inn Chicken Broth can to go with the chicken, then made this risotto recipe and steamed green beans. DH loved it and so did I. I followed the recipe exactly. It was perfect. Thanks for another great recipe. I will definitely make risotto more often and use this recipe to do so. Can't wait for lunch leftovers!

Tasso Ham

Reviewed: May 27, 2006
Hubby is a big grill/smoker kind of guy. He has tried several tasso recipes and this is by far the best!! He makes his own tasso to use in several Cajun recipes that call for tasso as it isn't something we can find in the stores here in WV. The meat is tender and flavorful. Use the bones to cook your favorite greens in....yum!!

Prune and Olive Chicken

Reviewed: May 26, 2006
Let me say WOW! I don't care for prunes or olives, but DH does. Trying to use ingredients we have on hand this week without going to the store. So I reluctantly made some changes. Used 4 skinless chicken thighs. Was out of red wine vinegar so I used apple cider. The prunes I had were "lemon" essence from some other recipe my DH wanted to try a while back. The only olives we had were habanero stuffed (a little spicy). I did screw up reading the recipe (oops) put all ingredients (wine & sugar included) into the marinade. Marinaded for 8 hrs then baked as directed. Served with buttered orzo & green beans. Fantastic! Plenty of sauce. The combination was delicious. This is the only way I will eat prunes & olives again!! Hubby enjoyed, but I don't think as much as I did. Would be perfect for serving to company too. Very easy! Thanks for a great recipe.

Blackened Tilapia with Secret Hobo Spices

Reviewed: May 18, 2006
Very good for a quick meal. We like spicy foods and this is spicier than most. Followed spice mixture exactly, but I did add a little more garlic powder as we love garlic. DH still felt something was "missing" from the ingredients? Used a cast iron skillet as that is usually the best pan to make blackened foods in. Served with a cheesy rice pilaf and green beans. I didn't use the bread...this recipe doesn't have any liquid in it except for the small amount of oil & a squeeze of lemon juice at the end so I didn't have any "juices" to be soaked up? as it stated. We may tweak it the next time with some other spices too. Thanks!

Country Pound Cake

Reviewed: Apr. 12, 2006
Wanted to make a plain old fashioned pound cake and this was it! I followed the instructions with only 2 changes (because I needed to substitute) I used evaporated milk and 2 teas. of vanilla extract. I thought I had lemon in my cupboard, but I was out! I used a 10 cup Bundt pan sprayed with Baker's Joy. Put the cake in a cold oven & set the oven for 350 degrees & timer for 80 minutes as instructed. The cake really got too brown, but stil edible. I think next time I will lower the time to 55-60 minutes and keep checking. I think this is a great cake to have with tea or coffee. Hubby raved. His only comment is that he would have like a lemon flavor. Lemon peel would be good along with the extract. This is a keeper for us!

Mom's Great Green Beans

Reviewed: Apr. 8, 2006
We like green beans, fresh, frozen & canned. I have made this several times using all three types. Each time someone asks me for the recipe. This is great for a pot luck dish. A nice twist for green beans.

Cabbage Roll Casserole

Reviewed: Mar. 15, 2005
Lately I have been craving stuffed cabbage, but since it is only 2 of us to cook for that seems like so much work. This recipe was very easy & tasty. I scaled the recipe to 6 servings. Used 1 large bag of pre-shredded coleslaw mix which had shredded carrots in it too. Then followed the recipe as written, Cooked it for 1 hour covered only as it seemed like the extra 30 minutes would have dried it out too much. I am sure this will taste even better for lunch tomorrow! Thanks for another keeper!

I made this using pineapple supreme cake mix as suggested from another review and then followed everything else as the recipe directed. It was fabulous!! This will definitely be one of my keepers! It tastes really good the next day with a big cold glass of milk too!! Thanks for a great comforting cake recipe!

Oma's Cottage Cheesecake

Reviewed: Jun. 29, 2004
Made this to use cottage cheese that I had in the fridge. Used a 9 inch pie plate instead of a square pan. Looked perfect, but not too crazy about the texture of the cheese mixture, a little grainy for my taste. My husband wasn't crazy about it for the same reason. I served it with a homemade blueberry sauce. I am glad I tried it, but prefer cheesecake made with cream cheese as it has a more distinct flavor. Not a bad recipe, just personal preference.

Uncle Terry Meat

Reviewed: Jun. 17, 2004
We have made this several times for cookouts. We have used sirloin steak instead of chuck roast and it is perfect. It is a favorite with kids & adults alike. This is one of our "keepers".
