Grandmother's Buttermilk Cornbread

Reviewed: Oct. 4, 2009
I mixed all the ingredients in a separate bowl and cooked this in a cast iron skillet in the oven. It was great! Thanks for the recipe!

Beef Barley Vegetable Soup

Reviewed: May 21, 2007
This was very good. I think I'd cook the roast on low for a 8 hours. I'll try that next time. As a tip, I made this yesterday and it's much better today. The meat got much more tender; probably because the tomatoes are acidic and broke down the fibers overnight. This is a keeper.

Raspberry Vinaigrette Dressing

Reviewed: May 14, 2006
Very simple but tasted great. I used on a salad of mixed baby greens, sliced Granny Smith apple, goat cheese and toasted walnuts. I made for some neighbors and it was a huge hit.

Spinach and Strawberry Salad

Reviewed: Feb. 13, 2006
This was good, but I didn't enjoy it as much as the spinach and apple salad on this site. The dressing was too sweet. I tasted it before I put it on the salad and added more vinegar. It was very good then.

Jackie's Spinach and Apple Salad

Reviewed: Jan. 15, 2006
This was very good a nice change of pace. Since I'm low carb, I made raspberry vinaigrette to use instead of the maple syrup. The apples and spinach worked very well together. The walnuts added a nice crunch also. I think I'll use a different cheese than cheddar next time. I like goat cheese or Feta in salads.

Best Unsteamed Shrimp

Reviewed: Jan. 7, 2006
Based on previous reviews, I didn't microwave either. I prepared it on the stovetop and it was great and done in much less time than the recipe calls for.

Easy Chocolate Mousse

Reviewed: Dec. 25, 2005
Tastes OK for kids, but instant pudding and cool whip isn't a recipe. This isn't a mousse.

Italian Roast Beef I

Reviewed: Dec. 22, 2005
This was very simple and very tasty. It smells wonderful while it's cooking. As a shortcut, I combined the oil and spices and just rubbed the mixture over the beef before putting it in my cooker.

Spicy Spinach

Reviewed: Dec. 22, 2005
Based on previous reviewer comments. I cut back on the pepper jack to about 2 ounces and combined it ith 3 ounces of Colby Jack. Spiciness was OK but it needs salt.

Green Bean Casserole II

Reviewed: Dec. 19, 2005
I've made this a couple of times and it's very simple, but very good. Only rated a 3 because I don't rate things 5 where the main ingredients come from a can. It's simple but tasty. Thanks.

Hot and Sour Soup with Tofu

Reviewed: Dec. 19, 2005
I tripled the cornstarch and it was still a little watery. Also although the sour part is about right if you use 2 tablespoons of vinegar, it's not very hot. I'll have to work on that part. Being creative is part of cooking. I really liked having the red pepper in it. I also added about 5 ounces of button mushrooms that I sautéed. Thanks for giving me a good starting point Ann. This is better than other recipes I’ve tried.

Hot and Sour Slaw

Reviewed: Dec. 19, 2005
I agree with the previous reviewer that this was WAY too vinegary and not hot at all. Kudos for the idea of using bok choy in a salad. But I'll need to work on this one before I'd serve it to anyone.

Broiled Tilapia Parmesan

Reviewed: Dec. 18, 2005
This is very simple but delicious. The tilapia is delicate and the sharpness of the parmesan and mayo really carries it. If you use a cookie sheet rather than a broiler pan, make sure that it's strong enough that it won't buckle under the heat of the broiler. I made that mistake the first time I tried this. BTW, the picture is very accurate. I've made this 3 times now and will continue to do so.

Carne Adovada

Reviewed: Sep. 18, 2005
I used boneless chicken breasts instead of the pork and cooked it for two hours instead of four. It was very tasty.
