Stuffed Jalapenos III

Reviewed: Sep. 20, 2013
AMAZING! I had a bumper crop of fresh jalapenos from the garden and scoured online for a recipe that baked rather than fried the peppers. ADDED: 5 small cloves of finely chopped garlic and forgot the cheddar cheese...baked at 400' for 30 minutes and finished 10 min @425' ... wrapped the bacon lengthwise and did not toothpick All of the cheese stayed. Used broiler pan to cook on, caught all the drippings. They were amazing! I did not rinse them at all and found they were quite mild. Thanks to all the input. This will be a definite Keeper in our home.

Pork Marsala

Reviewed: May 19, 2013
AWESOME! I did follow the other hints in regards to sauteeing the mushrooms & garlic first, then pushing them aside adding the meat. I could see it needed more sauce. I had some leftover gravy from a pork roast and added it to the pan after the meat was nearly done, but before I added the marsala. MARVELOUS FLAVOUR! Thanks for sharing

Spinach Casserole

Reviewed: Oct. 19, 2012
I gave this receipe 4 stars...a good basic Spinach Casserole. I used fresh garlic cloves (4), 1/2 chopped onion, reduced the eggs to 3, increased the cottage cheese to 20 oz, left out the sour cream,left out the flour, decreased the cheddar cheese to 2 cups in and 1/2 cup on top, added a teaspoon of caraway seed and a GENEROUS sprinkling of black pepper, NO salt. Guess I changed a lot, but it came out wonderfully well. More like the recipe that my Ma gave me and I could not locate tonight. Gotta love this site for jogging the memory...smiles. Thank you, Valerie.

Funky Enchilada Casserole

Reviewed: Sep. 9, 2012
I gave this 4 stars, due to a few crucial modifications. I brushed the bottom of a SS pan with olive oil and placed restaurant style corn chips around the edges and covering the bottom. Used ground beef, seasoned with cumin, chili powder, cayenne, on the first layer. Topped it with 2/3 veggie/bean mixture and added about 1/2 c thick salsa (I use Chi Chi) spread thinly along with about 1/2 cup of the cheese. I added a 2nd layer of tortilla chips, topping it with the rest of the veggie/bean mix and added sliced green olives, then topped with with the rest of the cheese. Baked as directed. Trick is to let it "rest" before you cut it. It was cohesive enough to hold it's shape, but not soggy from too much salsa. The chips stayed crunchy and I cannot wait to have it for lunch tomorrow. All in all a good base for your creative individualism. Thank you for sharing!

Ali's Greek Tortellini Salad

Reviewed: Jul. 15, 2012
Absolutely delcious! Taking the advice of other folks, I doubled the dressing recipe, and saved half for drizzling on top as needed. It kept well and made great lunches the next day. Thank you for sharing, Ali!

Pumpkin Spice Bread

Reviewed: Dec. 25, 2011
It is not fair of me to really rate this, as I totally changed it..I had extra pie filling and no other pans, so I invented a "recipe". Took 1 QT of pie filling, 1 c applesauce (instead of oil) 1 box white cake mix. 2 slightly beaten eggs, extra cinnamon and nutmeg to taste...Baked in a 13 x 9 pan at 350 for one hour...top split a little bit, but the end result was a moist cake and very tasty. I will definitely try the recipe as it is written, as it sounds delish, too!

Lentil Loaf

Reviewed: Nov. 14, 2011
I always read the reviews of others before trying a new recipe. In this one I used sprouted sesame wheat bread,left out the soup mix and used curry, cayenne, thyme, and basil instead...a lot more. I sauteed 1/2 onion and 3 large cloves of fresh garlic, and two grated carrots. I stayed with the tomato paste, as it has 100mg less of salt than catsup and also the main reason I did not use the soup mix. I left off the breadcumbs enirely. Letting it sit for 10 minutes wasn't enough to let it cool and firm up. And, perhaps, the lentils need to be drained before mixing with everything else(it wasn't mentioned anywhere) All in all, this was a great recipe for lentil loaf and I have tried many of them with little satisfaction. Thank you for sharing! This one is printed and emailed to be shared with family and friends. Happy Holidays to you all!

Braised Balsamic Chicken

Reviewed: Sep. 18, 2011
Thank you for this original recipe for chicken...always looking for a new way to prepare. I did make a few changes (personal taste). I used 5 chicken thighs for the flavor, I added a few large, sliced shallots to the onions and later on, added several large, diced garlic cloves. I first used 14.5 oz can of tomatoes and added about a cup of fresh from the garden and still found it needed more, so I added an additional 14.5 oz can of tomatoes. This made the volume right, but had to tighten it up a little with a flour/sauce slurry...did the trick! I served it over fettucine with fresh steamed green beans, drizzled with olive oil and sprinkled with fresh romano...mmmmm....This will become one of my family favorites. Thank you for sharing!

Creole Pork Chops

Reviewed: Sep. 1, 2011
Ever since living in New Orleans, I have made this recipe. I do tend to like things a bit spicier, so I added one fresh jalapeno (with seeds) and 3 large coarsely chopped cloves of fresh garlic, along with 2 TBSP of the Cajun seasoning. I, too, saute` the veggies first, in olive oil, and add to the tomatoes and sprinkle liberally with dried basil...THEN I saute` the pork chops in the remaining olive olive and sear both sides and then add to the "stew"....served over rice with crusty French bread on the side is how my family likes it. Nice to see this recipe posted!

J.P.'s Big Daddy Biscuits

Reviewed: Feb. 13, 2010
I love them! Gave this recipe 5 stars. I did follow the advice of "patting dough" rather than kneading it. As to the cook who said they were "tasteless" I suggest using the full amount of the salt recommended and substitute butter for the shortening. Very flavorful and oh, so fluffy! Thank you for sharing J.P.!

Breakfast Upside Down Cake

Reviewed: Mar. 21, 2009
Per other comments, I made the following adjustments: Sliced 4 medium potatoes very thin sprinkled w/pepper and garlic powder; one 12 oz pkg bacon; 7 eggs with 4 tbsp milk; 1 cup shredded chipotle cheddar. Layered: potatoes, eggs, bacon, cheese. Used 9 inch glass pie plate and covered with foil. Baked for a total of 35 minutes at 325 degrees. I did not flip it over. I cannot tell you what a hit this was in my household! Thank You!

Favorite Corn Bread

Reviewed: Mar. 21, 2009
I did make a few changes, as I wanted to bake in a 12 inch skillet: I doubled complete recipe; 3 eggs, brown sugar instead of white; corn oil instead of butter. Will use 12 inch cast iron skillet. Follow-up, it needed the extra egg, as it was just a little crumbly, but otherwise very good. I do enjoy baking in the cast iron skillet. Really love this recipe! Thanks for sharing.

Baked Teriyaki Chicken

Reviewed: Mar. 5, 2009
This was excellent, nice and moist and very flavorful. I really liked the sauce, although I did use brown sugar instead of white. Another little change: used 6 boneless, skinless breast and baked at 400' for 40 minutes covered with foil. Then at 350' for 10 minutes, uncovered. I found that the sauce was enough and the au jus from the chicken roasting was great to spoon over the rice. Thanks!

Stuffed Cabbage Rolls

Reviewed: Feb. 24, 2009
My mother made these when we were little-love them! I did make some changes by adding some oregano to the meat/rice mixture and also 2 TBSP of medium hot salsa. I used a 28 oz can of stewed tomatoes for the bottom of the pan where the rolls will cook. Then I covered the pan with foil and baked for 1-1/4 hrs. With the remaining inner head of cabbage, I sliced it thickly and steamed it for a side veg along with boiled potatoes. Garnish the cabbage rolls with sour cream and sauce the cabbage and potatoes with the tomato sauce...and a little sour cream. Very yummy!

Blackened Tilapia with Secret Hobo Spices

Reviewed: Feb. 13, 2009
Overall, this was a very tasty blackened recipe. Like otherss, I adjusted the spices: 2 TBSP paprika, 1/2 tsp of black pepper, NO white pepper, 1 tsp salt, 1/4 tsp garlic powder. I used catfish filets and needed to cook them longer than 3 minutes each side. Unfortunately, all the "seasoning" of my cast iron pan came off in this one use. Did anyone else have this problem? I will definitely be doing this again, but outside. I had to put a fan in the kitchen window to take out the smoke. But, it sure was delicious! A keeper!

I added 1 tsp of vanilla and left out the marshmellows and used two 40oz cans of Bruce's Yam (really cut down the prep time) There wasn't a piece leftover. Thank you!

Chicken Enchilada Casserole II

Reviewed: Jan. 4, 2009
I have made this recipe before, following it exactly and it was too moist. This time, as other cooks did, I adjusted the amounts as follows: only used 8 oz sour cream, NO salsa, 1/2 c diced onion, used 12 6" CORN tortillas, 5 lg thighs (smothered in chipotle sauce once diced), 3 cups cheddar, and 4oz can diced chilies. Letting it stand is a must. Rave reviews on this dish! Thank you.

Green Bean Casserole I

Reviewed: Dec. 18, 2008
Great and tasty recipe. I reduced the milk to a 1/4 c and added 1/2 c of sour cream for thickness and taste. I also added some sauteed onions and shredded cheddar cheese to the mix. It was the BEST green bean casserole I have ever tasted. This one's a keeper and is requested for Christmas dinner.

Homesteader Cornbread

Reviewed: Dec. 11, 2008
Great cornbread! I followed other member suggestions and switched the cornmeal with the flour. Since the only pan I have is 10 x 13 NOT 9 x 12, I decided to bake it in a glass loaf pan. Living in high altitude, i extended the baking time to 1 hour at 425 and it came out great! A wonderful accompiament to a hot bowl of beef stew. Comfort food on a cold winter night. How I love winter cooking! Thanks again.
