Chicken Fried Chicken

Reviewed: Feb. 3, 2013
This makes the best fried chicken ever! Since I live alone, I reduced the servings. Haven't figured out how to do 3/8 of an egg, so I just use a whole one. After years of study on saturated fat v. vegetable oil, I use lard to fry the chicken, and it's so much better than any vegetable oil or vegetable solid shortening, and, I guarantee you, safer eating!

African Curry

Reviewed: Feb. 5, 2013
This instantly became one of my favorites. The temptation is to cook it too often and thus get tired of it. Changes I made: I used diced tomatoes. Also, a lot more curry powder. I used a TB for 2 servings, so 2-3 TB for a full recipe. Also, 1 TB brown sugar (2-3 for full recipe) and 1/2 tsp. ground chili pepper (again, 1/2-3/4 for full recipe). Also used extra coconut milk. This recipe is fast to make and heaven to eat!

Western North Carolina Vinegar Barbeque Sauce

Reviewed: May 15, 2013
This is the only decent recipe I've found for Carolina BBQ sauce. I followed the recipe exactly. Since I live in a highrise (11 stories up) I can't grill in any way, so I slow cook a pork roast with a can of beer and, when done, use this sauce--heaven!

Roasted Sweet Potatoes & Onions

Reviewed: May 15, 2013
I can't handle those super sweet recipes--at holidays I just skip them. I loved this--the flavors were each distinctive, but they blended well. I had to punt a little on this (who keeps Amaretto on hand?). I used bourbon, which worked quite well, and slightly increased the amount of oil. Also used a bit more thyme because I really like it--it is a prominent ingredient. I didn't have almonds, so I toasted some walnuts and sprinkled them on top. The walnuts go very well with the whole mixture.

Japanese Ginger Salad Dressing

Reviewed: May 5, 2013
This is an acceptable dressing, but I found it rather bland for a ginger dressing. Even after several days in the fridge, you can barely taste the ginger. If I make this again I would double the ginger at least.

One Dish Bourbon Chicken

Reviewed: Mar. 14, 2013
I really didn't care for this. The sauce had no character, and couldn't even stand up to the rice I cooked. I didn't keep the recipe--I'll find something else.

Cantaloupe Pie I

Reviewed: May 18, 2013
The pie works okay, I just really didn't like it. I don't think cantaloupe lends itself well to this use. The pie will get eaten, but I won't make it again.

Pudding Cookies I

Reviewed: Jul. 3, 2013
This was listed as a "low carb" dessert, but it is very heavy in carbs!
