Salmon Croquettes

Reviewed: Jan. 23, 2007
Mom and Dad asked me to cook dinner, and they wanted Salmon Patties. I found this recipe here, and tried it out instead. Next time I'm doubling the recipe, because I barely had enough to serve everyone kept swiping them off the plate as soon as they came out of the skillet! I substituted wheat germ as the coating for "fry mix" Cracker Meal, and used extra virgin olive oil over a very low heat toasting them. I'll definately be making this again!

Slow Cooker Ham and Beans

Reviewed: Jan. 24, 2008
I had some left over ham from the holidays that I pulled out of the freezer and thawed out. Chopped it up, tossed the ingredients for this recipe into my crock pot, and ended up with a very tasty soup! The only change that I made is that I added a can of chicken broth, then added water 2" to cover. I'll be serving this with a plate of cornbread, and a cool spinach salad. This recipe has a quick prep time, and tastes great! I'll be making this again!

Gourmet Chicken Salad II

Reviewed: Dec. 10, 2007
As fantastic as this recipe is, as written, I've found it to be versatile as well. I had some left over roasted chicken, and decide I wanted to make a quick chicken salad out of. I reduced the menu for 4 servings, and used: 1/2 tsp of McCormick Garlic and Herb seasoning in place of, Fresh Rosemary. 1/2 Cup of chopped almonds instead of walnuts. 1/4 cup of Feta instead of Blue Cheese. I didn't add any salt because of the saltiness of the Feta, but did use fresh cracked black pepper. What a fantastic recipe! It would work great as an appetizer, or a dip, and the only thing that I might seriously consider adding to it would be a tbsp or a 1/4 cup of raisuns to it. Toasted wheat bread, or crescent rolls with lettuce and tomato for a great sandwhich. I highly recommend this recipe both "as is," or to experiment with!

Yellow Squash

Reviewed: Jul. 5, 2008
I used to order the "steamed squash" at a diner in Rhode Island, years ago while stationed in New England in the Coast Guard. This recipe reminded of that wonderful experience. So far I've been asked to make this again and again. Sea salt, fresh cracked pepper, unsalted butter, and 2% Milk, along with fresh yellow or white onions are the only seasoning!

My Navy Bean Soup

Reviewed: Jan. 18, 2001
I found this recipe to be very inexpensive to make. To reduce some of the fat I drained the bacon, and used olive oil to saute the onions and carrots. It's a pretty straight forward recipe, and my friends love it!

Garlic Cajun Ribs

Reviewed: Sep. 7, 2000
The idea of boiling the ribs in a homemade "cajin boil" before grilling save hours of actual "cook time." Marinating and putting on the grill for that short period of time, my guests thought that I had spent hours on these ribs. The best part? They loved them! If I hadn't grabbed a few ribs for myself, there wouldn't have been any left.

Brisket Marinade

Reviewed: Jan. 23, 2008
The only change that I made was eliminating the onion salt, and substituted one sliced whole white onion, slice thin. Don't skip on the Red Wine, a Burgundy or a Cabernet works.

Roasted Garlic Potato Soup

Reviewed: Feb. 27, 2003
Loaded with flavor. Easy up on the milk for garlic mashpotatoes, then add milk to any leftovers to complete this as a soup. Nice and hearty!

Split Pea and Ham Soup I

Reviewed: Jan. 18, 2001
I substituted olive oil for the vegetable oil, completely omitted the salt and pepper, and used chicken stock instead of "water." I found the a can of smoked Spam diced works just as well if you're on a budget. Easy to make, and it's usually gone that night!

Appetizer Sausage Balls in Blankets

Reviewed: Oct. 30, 2007
These take a little work, but they're worth it. I especially like how you can prep these days in advance! Everyone wanted the recipe. I'm sure that any really good breakfast sausage would work. I followed the recipe to the letter, and had no left overs!

Spicy Lime Grilled Shrimp

Reviewed: Jun. 26, 2011
Just used a basic "Cajun Seasoning," and it was just the right amount of spice. I'll be making this again, quick and easy!

Giblet Gravy II

Reviewed: Dec. 25, 2010
I used canned chicken stock instead of the turkey stock, though next year I'll make a batch of turkey stock before hand. Excellent Giblet Gravy! I'd cut back the ground black pepper by half though, 1/2 teaspoon was a little overpowering for my tastes, the sage was just right. Will make this again!

Roasted Garlic Mashed Potatoes

Reviewed: Oct. 10, 2003
This recipe is the closest thing I've found to match the mash potatoes made at Texas Land and Cattle Company Steak House. I'll never eat plain mash potatoes again!

Potato Cake

Reviewed: Jul. 14, 2012
What a great idea for left over mashed potatoes. The flour helps to bind them together. The only thing that I changed is that I used a tablespoon of potato, flattened it out, then some cheese, then some potato on top, and flattened them out into small medallions and fried them in some butter. My family raved!

Juicy Roasted Chicken

Reviewed: Jun. 26, 2011
I was looking for a simple roasted chicken recipe, and this one is by far the best that I've found! Nice crispy skin, nice flavor, and so moist that the meat fell right off the bone. We'll definitely be making this again, and might try experimenting with lemon pepper, or garlic powder the next go around. 5 Stars!

All-Day Apple Butter

Reviewed: Dec. 25, 2010
Made exactly how the recipe was laid out. I love the way that it made my house smell. Canned and gave away as gifts. I love the tart of the Granny Smith Apples with the sweet. Agree with others, that the recipe is followed to the letter that it's more than a little sweet. I might cut back the sugar by a cup, and consider making it with Splenda the next go around for those of my family and friends prefer this as "sugar free."

Roast Sticky Chicken-Rotisserie Style

Reviewed: Dec. 9, 2007
This was the first time that I ever roasted a chicken, and chose this recipe for its simplicity. Turns out that I already had most of the spices in my cupboard, and with a $3.79 chicken I was ready to go! I had no idea this could be so easy, and thanks to everyone else who's reviewed this recipe, because y'all gave me some great ideas to help me along here. I highly recommend this recipe!
