Welcome to blogisode #31.
For those of you new to my blogs, they are written purely to showcase recipes that were formerly faceless, that is, they had no pictures. Many people "eat with their eyes" first and are unwilling or less likely to try a recipe
if there is no picture. Allrecipes has created a recipe photo contest
inspired by this idea. Click below to learn more. I have included my reviews simply for those interested in reading them.
Note: Though I submitted the original photos for the following recipes, others may since have been submitted.
Chicken Wings Pacifica
These were tasty and a nice change from traditional Buffalo wings. They were fall-off-the-bone tender. Thanks for this recipe.
Pittsburgh Chipped Ham Barbecues
I grew up on Chipped Ham Barbecues. I was a little leary of the cinnamon and now wish I'd left it out. This was pretty good, but the cinnamon just didn't do it for me. The tangy-sweet and slightly smoky flavors are plenty, but
the cinnamon was overkill. Next time I will leave it out. I also wish I'd had another 1/4 lb of ham to throw in as there was too much sauce letover. Thanks for a good base recipe.
Spicy-Sweet Glazed Salmon
Very tasty - no leftovers. DH finished his portion and started on mine. 5 stars!
I know, it's not a salmon. :)
This was so good and so easy! I used whole wheat spaghetti. I did have to add extra water, but that may have been because of the spaghetti I used. I will be making this again for a quick, hearty, delicious meal! Thanks for sharing
Turkey Skillet Supper
By: Connie Thomas
This is a very good, quick meal. I used petite diced tomatoes as I was out of crushed. I thought about putting them in the blender, but liked the idea of the little tomato chunks, so I left them "as is". Other than that, I followed the recipe exactly. I did
have to add a good bit more water than the recipe called for to keep the mixture from sticking and give the macaroni enough liquid to cook properly. We added shredded cheddar cheese in addition to the sour cream. Very tasty!
Rigatoni With Italian Chicken
This was very good and very quick. I did make one slight change: I cut up the chicken before I marinated it in the dressing. This allowed more chicken to be in contact with the marinade for more
flavor. I served this with crusty Italian bread for a satisfying dinner.
He's back. He's cute.
Who doesn't love a dancing chicken?
Low-Fat Lemon Poppy Seed Muffins
By: Pam Williamson
These were very good. The lemon and poppy seeds work very well together, and you'd never know this is a low-fat muffin. These all vanished quickly. Thanks for sharing the recipe!
Honey Wheat Muffins
By: Carolyn Deming
These were okay, but they lacked a little flavor. I was puzzled that the recipe called for greasing the muffin cups. I don't see why liners wouldn't work here. I'd use foil liners if there is a
possibility of the muffins sticking to the liners. Not using liners caused the muffins to dry out qickly after removing from the pan. These are best served warm as they flavor and texture changes when they cool.
Old Time Soft Sugar Cookies
By: Sharon Gerstman
These were quick enough to throw together and baked up nicey. I chose to use colored sugar instead of white. If I try these again, I may skip the sugar and add frosting, since the cookies just seemed to need a little something
Pecan Sticky Muffins
By: Dorothy Bateman
Very tasty! Make sure you follow the directions and grease up those muffin cups. I forgot and lost some topping as a result of the oversight. These are best served warm and gooey!
