Southwestern Pasta Salad

Reviewed: May 10, 2008
Just made this and it's fantastic. I didn't have lime juice so I used lemon. Can't wait to make it again with the lime. Took others advice and used only 1/4 cup olive oil and definately extra juice to give it a good bite. This would also be really good with some avacado added in at the last minute.

Baked Fennel with Parmesan

Reviewed: Oct. 24, 2006
This dish was really great! I was nervous because I don't like the taste of raw fennel, but when cooked it loses that harsh licorice flavor and tastes wonderful. I did add one cup of creme fraiche and I know I added about a 1/2 cup of cheese. I have also used sour cream instead of creme fraiche and it works just as well. Great dish, I'm really glad I tried it!

Kentucky Biscuits

Reviewed: May 18, 2006
Wow, this was very good. I never make biscuits because they always seem so dry, not these! One thing I did do was freeze the stick of butter and then grate with a box grater (I saw this on a cooking show). That way the butter stays nice and cold for a nice tender biscuit. Plus it mixes much easier with the dry ingredients. Will definately make this again!

Bread Machine Challah II

Reviewed: Apr. 14, 2006
This is by far my favorite bread recipe! It is a nice sweet dense bread. I have made it several times. Everyone loves it and I have had quite a few requests for the recipe. I do notice the moisture of the dough can sometimes be dependant upon the weather. But saying that I have never had it fail for me. I do sometimes add a smidgen more yeast (I use the stuff in the jar). Sometimes I will also make one large loaf instead of two small ones. I just love this recipe it is definately a staple in my recipe box, and THANK YOU for sharing this one!

Oatmeal Raisin Cookies IV

Reviewed: Apr. 3, 2006
Very good cookies! I used a HEAPING cup of raisins and soaked them in 2tsp. of vanilla for an hour, then realized I was supposed to add the eggs. So, I added the eggs and soaked them for another 45 minutes. (I don't know if that made a difference or not, but the raisins taste really good). I cut back the baking soda by a 1/2tsp. and added a 1/2tsp. of baking powder. They turned out beautiful! My kids couldn't wait to get their little hands on them. I will definately make again, the only thing I might do different is only add a 1/2 cup of white sugar (they sure are sweet.) Thanks so much for sharing this one!

Bone-In Ham Cooked in Beer

Reviewed: Dec. 14, 2005
I normally don't really care for ham, but this was awesome! I used a 7.27 lb. brown sugar cured bone-in ham. Dumped 1 can of beer on it put on an 8 oz. can of pineapple rings and dumped that juice on it too. I baked it for about 2 1/2 hours (I turned to oven up to 350 for the last 1/2 hour). I basted it about 5 times while cooking and let it rest for about 15 minutes before carving. This is by far the best ham I ever made and have probably ever tasted! I was so moist and tender. I can't wait to make it again! Thanks for sharing this recipe.

Noreen's Mom's Simple Summer Squash Bake

Reviewed: Jun. 28, 2005
Really good flavor. I used zucchini and melted a little butter to mix with bread crumbs and sprinkled on top. At first I thought it looked a little watery, but the flavor was very good. My family enjoyed it, something I would make again!

Simply Divine Meat Loaf with Spinach

Reviewed: Jun. 1, 2005
I will start by saying my husband really liked it. But I did not. I thought it was way too salty and not as firm as plain meatloaf. With all the different ingredients I was really excited to try this one but I think the onion soup mix must have over powered everything. I even waited and tried again when it was cold, but still thought it was way too salty, sorry.

Vidalia Onion Pie

Reviewed: Jun. 1, 2005
This pie was great! I did make some changes though. I cut the recipe in half, but used 3/4 cup sour cream, instead of parmesan cheese I used about 1 1/4 cup grated swiss cheese (1 cup in the ipe and 1/4 or more sprinkled on top), and instead of hot sauce I used a sprinkle or two of nutmeg. The changes I made were for personal preference, but the pie turned out wonderful!

Grandma's Sour Cream Pound Cake

Reviewed: May 20, 2005
This is a great recipe! I omitted the mace, did not have sour cream on hand so I substituted by adding 1 Tbl. lemon juice and enough whole milk to make one cup (like buttermilk). With my oven I baked less than 1 hour, you definately need to keep an eye on it while baking. I also iced it with the recipe for "Perfect Chocolate" Frosting, on the back of the Hershey's cocoa can. My family LOVED it! There was a piece left almost a week later and it was just as moist as the first day!

Sweet Pork Chops

Reviewed: Feb. 9, 2005
Yummy! I took advice of others and used cornstarch, still had to thin with more apple juice. (not a problem w/ 2 small children). I also added two very large cloves of garlic, chopped. Really easy and I thought very tasty.

Kathy's Delicious Whole Slow Cooker Chicken

Reviewed: Jan. 12, 2005
Did not care for this at all. Very greasy, had to keep skimming out oil. My husband thought it was ok. I wouldn't recommend using a whole chicken, it falls apart and bones can be dangerous for little ones. I do think it might be better with chicken pieces.

Lemon Dill Salad Dressing

Reviewed: Jan. 10, 2005
Good dressing, although the mayo stood out a little too much for my tatse. (I split the recipe) but, I added a little more buttermilk, some garlic powder, scallions, and a little sour cream. And I only had fresh dill, I know that dried has a stronger flavor. I will probably make again if I have extra buttermilk.

Caramelized Onion and Blue Cheese Orzo

Reviewed: Jan. 10, 2005
Great side dish! Did not have mascarpone on hand so I used cream cheese. And I had Gorganzola (same thing?) so I used that instead.

Flank Steak with Garlic Wine Sauce

Reviewed: Jan. 10, 2005
Great dish, very easy to make. I cooked the steak a little longer because my husband does not like rare meat. It was still pink and very tender. Was even better the next night for leftovers!
