Crispy Fried Chicken

Reviewed: Jan. 23, 2014
I haven't cooked fried chicken in about 20 years, so I found this recipe, read many reviews and was very eager to try it. I also wanted to use the method that Elaine described as I remember my Granny doing something like this when I was little. I made very few modifications to the original recipe. I soaked my chicken in buttermilk (in the fridge for about 6 hours) and added garlic and onion powder (about 1 1/2 tsp each) to the flour mixture. Oh my goodness! Let me tell you, the chicken was crispy and tender and oh so good. Next time, I will have a lid for my cast iron skillet and I won't put as much oil in my skillet to begin with. I think 1/3 is plenty. I had forgotten how messy frying can be too. As another reviewer stated, be prepared to have a few hours to make this from flour mixture to the dinner table. You really shouldn't leave a large skillet of grease on the stove unattended. But it was so worth the extra time and effort. My family loved it and wants me to make it again. And that y'all is what melts my butter. :-)

Turkey and Quinoa Meatloaf

Reviewed: Feb. 3, 2012
We decided to try quinoa and this looked like a good recipe. It was very good. I used venison instead of turkey, but I will try turkey next time. Now we feel more comfortable trying other recipes with quinoa (aka bird seed). :-)

Swedish Meatballs I

Reviewed: Feb. 3, 2012
I have made this several times and our family loves it. I usually use venison, but have tried turkey meat also. We have tried both wide noodles and rice with this and they both work well. Very easy and good!

Four Cheese Macaroni

Reviewed: Nov. 10, 2011
This is what I have been making for 2 years at every holiday meal my family has. I made a few changes: 3/4 cup of the 4 cheeses instead of 1/2, 2 cups of half-and-half instead of 1 1/2 and only used 1 egg instead of 2. I add the beaten egg to the macaroni noodles with the butter, heated the half-and-half in a large pot over low heat, add the processed cheese until melted and then add the 4 cheeses until all is melted. I then poured the macaroni into the cheese mixture, mixed it all up and poured it in my casserold dish. I only bake it for 20-25 minutes. It is awesome and since I only bake it 3 or 4 times a year, I don't feel so guilty for going back for seconds (okay, thirds).

Awesome Sausage, Apple and Cranberry Stuffing

Reviewed: Nov. 4, 2011
This is time consuming, but well worth it. I did not make any changes and it turned out perfect.

Braised Balsamic Chicken

Reviewed: Jul. 13, 2011
I went by the recipe as written and it turned out great. I made brown rice and put the sauce over the rice. It was very good and the left-overs were even better.

Buttercream Icing

Reviewed: Jul. 29, 2010
This is the very same recipe that I was taught to use in my cake decorating class. Make sure your shortening is fresh and not over 6 months old. I usually buy a small can of shortening before I make this recipe. It's hard for me to not eat several spoonfulls of it. :-)

Southern Potato Salad

Reviewed: May 28, 2010
This is a very good recipe. I grew up in Southern Alabama, and this is basically what my grandmother and mother made. When I make it, I omit the celery and replace it with some yellow onions that I dice. The amount of onions depends on your preference. I eat it warm sometimes, but chill it for the outings. Yummy!

New Year's Day Black-Eyed Peas

Reviewed: Dec. 17, 2009
I love this recipe! I make it around 7:00 pm on New Year's Eve and then let it simmer for about 3 hours. It's my breakfast for New Year's Day and usualy my dinner too. I sometimes make cornbread to go with it. We love it and it's so easy!

Cheddar Beef Enchiladas

Reviewed: Apr. 26, 2007
We loved this recipe. I added a little garlic powder and some minced onions to the ground beef when I cooked it, but kept everything the same. It was quick and easy too.

Barbecue Ribs

Reviewed: Jun. 2, 2003
We loved the sauce! I followed the recipe exactly. I used dark rum because the recipe didn't specify. I cooked the ribs at night, added the sauce, and didn't grill the ribs until the next evening. I heated the sauce up a little for the basting process. My boyfriend was a bit skeptical about the sauce, (he's used to bottled sauces)but quickly changed his mind after he tasted the ribs. They were wonderful! Thank you for the recipe Kristy! :-)

Barbecue Beef Cups

Reviewed: May 30, 2003
I tried this recipe out on my 7-year old son and my boyfriend. My son loved eating it with his hands. They both seemed to like it more than I did. I think it had to do with the barbecue sauce I used. I didn't care for it that much. I may try this again, but I'll be a bit more selective about my sauce.

Mom's Chicken Cacciatore

Reviewed: Nov. 14, 2002
I made this for my boyfriend last night. He and I thought it was wonderful! I did exactly as the recipe said, but I added a little more garlic because we both love it so much. I served it on a bed of angel hair pasta. It has a great flavor to it. I can't wait to make it for company. :-)
