Maple Roast Turkey

Reviewed: Dec. 2, 2002
Moist and wonderful turkey, and the left over maple herb butter isn't at all necessary for exquisite gravy. This has now been THE Thanksgiving turkey on BOTH sides of my family for 3 years and counting...

Caramel Popcorn

Reviewed: Nov. 17, 2005
I am now famous for this popcorn! My daughter called it *sticky popcorn* and now it is my #1 requested recipe! I use margarine instead of butter, half the recipe for the toffee, and use 2 bags of popcorn. Use a tinfoil/cooking spray combo on your baking sheets and you won't have to worry about sticking. Whoever is throwing out pans, stop it! Hot soapy water and a little time to soak will melt the sugar right off. Oh, be sure to follow the baking procedure, stirring every 15 minutes if you don't want the toffee to pull out your fillings!

Indonesian Satay

Reviewed: Dec. 11, 2005
This recipe is SO simple and delicious. Chicken satay is one of my absolute favorite things and I have been searching for a really long time for the perfect peanut sauce recipe. The marinade makes this chicken so delicious and flavorful that you don't even need the peanut sauce, but putting the chicken on jasmine rice with the peanut sauce gets RAVE reviews every time.

Super Moist Pumpkin Bread

Reviewed: Oct. 30, 2006
I have now made this more times than I can count! I am always horrified by the amount of eggs and oil in these breads, so I made some easy substitutions to make it even healthier, but SHHHH, I don't tell anyone when I give it to them! I substitute 1 cup of whole wheat flour for 1 cup of regular flour and put one of those little containers of applesauce (approx. 1/3 cup) in the 1 cup measuring cup before filling it the rest of the way up with olive oil. NO, you can't taste the difference. I also replace the cinnamon/nutmeg mixture with 1 teaspoon EACH of pumpkin pie spice and cinnamon, and I used LIGHT coconut milk too. Toasting the nuts and adding coconut flakes is unnecessary. ;)

Daddy's Dang Banana Cake

Reviewed: Dec. 5, 2009
I have tried SO many banana bread recipes and after a couple of days you practically have to dip your piece into your milk because it's so dry! This STAYS unbelievably moist. I use the caramel frosting from this website to frost it, then heat up a piece for a few seconds in the microwave and top it with vanilla ice cream for a decadent dessert. It makes a really big loaf, so I make a mini loaf before pouring the rest of the batter into the big loaf pan. This is truly the best banana bread recipe that I've ever found.

Big Soft Ginger Cookies

Reviewed: Sep. 25, 2004
Added 12/17/07: I have been making these for about 4 or 5 years and I have to say that I'm not too thrilled with them this year...they were too puffy and cakey and not chewy enough. I can only conclude that I did't pull them out early enough...? I've made these a few times and they are perfect every time. Don't forget to squish 'em! I'm probably the only one who forgets to do it, but it IS necessary as they don't spread very much. I go exactly by the recipe and wouldn't change a thing.

Quinoa and Black Beans

Reviewed: Sep. 19, 2007
I tweaked the recipe quite a bit to make it a meal, but I LOVED it! My 5 year old didn't care for it, so I think I'll stick with the recipe next time. We used the Trader Joe's fire roasted frozen corn. The amount of beans was good...I didn't think it was too much at all.

Artichoke Dip

Reviewed: Dec. 15, 2012
For some reason, I always seem to have the ingredients for this on hand. I simply cannot bring myself to put a whole cup of mayo into this, so I always do 1/2 mayo and 1/2 non-fat plain Greek yogurt. The Greek yogurt makes this really pop...that tang adds a lot! I finely dice 2 green onions to put in here and add just a pinch of salt and about a quarter teaspoon of Grains of Paradise (I use this in the place of pepper). The green chili is something I wasn't expecting to find in this dip, but MAN, it's good!

Overnight Blueberry French Toast

Reviewed: Dec. 15, 2012
Wow. This is good. I followed the advice of some of the other reviewers and added sugar to the cream cheese...tastes like blueberry cheese danish...in the best way. Makes a ton. Definitely for a lot of people.

Upside Down Pumpkin Cake

Reviewed: Nov. 22, 2004
This was to die for! Perfect warm with a big scoop of vanilla ice cream (or whipped cream). It doesn't say to flip the cake in the recipe, so I didn't...I didn't change a thing! It's my mom's favorite thing of mine. She requests it at ALL family gatherings.

Jamie's Cranberry Spinach Salad

Reviewed: Mar. 4, 2006
Fabulous! I grated the onion to avoid chunks that were too big. I halfed the sugar AND the oil and used one of those "Good Seasons" itatlian dressing shakers, and it didn't compromise the taste AT ALL! I hogged the leftovers the next day and added grilled chicken chunks and diced apples to make it a meal. I ate it standing up in the kitchen, it never even made it to the table! Oh, and I used Spring Mix instead of just plain spinach. Edited to add: This is our Thanksgiving salad every year now.

Moscow Hot Chocolate

Reviewed: Feb. 3, 2008
We used the "Creamy Hot Cocoa" from this website (minus the half and half). Make sure that you remember that a shot is 2 ounces, so you're putting a half a shot of each...some people think a shot is 1oz. Also, make sure your mug is big enough or the booze can be overpowering. The TASTE is out of this world. ;-)

Garlic Spread

Reviewed: Dec. 14, 2008
This was SOOO good! I'm a huge fan of garlic, so I added an extra small clove and it was still super good. I used another reviewers advice and made it the night before to let the flavors meld. It was a hit!

Easy Slow Cooker French Dip

Reviewed: Sep. 25, 2004
Awesome! I did a coke instead of a beer with a little hesitation, but it was great! Next time I will do the beef consume for a little stronger flavor.

Angel Chicken Pasta

Reviewed: Sep. 25, 2004
This was SO good! I usually have a really hard time getting juicy chicken breasts out of a recipe, but you could cut these with your fork and the taste was TDF! (to die for)

Chocolate Rum Balls I

Reviewed: Dec. 20, 2005
Okay, first of all, these are RUM BALLS! If you don't like rum flavor, then this is not the recipe you should be making! I make these ALL of the time now, they are a staple every year. I made them with coconut rum this year and WOW! YUM! TIP: Use a spoon to drop little wads of rum ball dough onto a sheet of wax paper. Put about 2/3 cup of powdered sugar into a big ziploc bag and fold the top down so that you can easily drop the balls into it once you've rolled them. Dust your hands with powdered sugar, sprinkle a little on top of the dough balls, then start rollin'! NO MESS...well, no STICKY mess, lol.

J.P.'s Big Daddy Biscuits

Reviewed: Mar. 4, 2006
I used butter instead of shortening...Okay, y'all, I thought I had royally messed these up. I used the entire cup of milk and it made the dough super gooey, so I had to keep sprinkling flour on it to get it to stiffen up. I was afraid that it made me "over handle" the dough. I don't have a rolling pin, so I just patted fairly evenly with my hands. I had to do it twice and had one bicuit that I pieced together. UNBELIEVABLE! That last, sad little bicuit is the one that I had fresh out of the oven with a puddle of butter and jelly and it was STILL fluffy and perfect!
