Teriyaki Sauce

Reviewed: Nov. 30, 2010
I must say, living here in Hawaii, I have never heard of a Teriyaki Sauce without fresh ginger and garlic! The recipe we use is 1:1 soy sauce and sugar (or splenda if you prefer). Grate the ginger and garlic to taste (more garlic than ginger) and add a splash of mirin. Cook until dissolved. We marinate chicken, beef and even pork in this sauce and it is wonderful. Sesame seeds are often added as well.

American Potato Salad

Reviewed: Aug. 11, 2009
Great recipe. We have been making almost this exact recipe for years except we make it a potato/macaroni with the addition of a little elbow macaroni. For our tastes, you definitely need all the eggs suggested in this recipe but I must admit we don't add any bell pepper. It repeats on too many of us!! This is a wonderful recipe for new cooks who need to start with the basics and then venture out to add other ingredients as they get more comfortable. Thanks Joslyn!

Beef Barley Vegetable Soup

Reviewed: Feb. 17, 2009
This is a recipe my family has been using for years with slight variation. My parents owned a restaurant and they tought us that the best flavor comes from meat on the bone so we use beef shank for soup. I have never made it in a slow cooker but do everything in one pot on the stove. Added diced tomatoes. We do take meat out once it is tender, dice it up and keep on the side to add back in later. Veggies get cooked in the meat broth to impart flavor into them as well. We pour the soup over a small amount of tiny acini de pepe pasta which is cooked separately and placed in the bowl first. As most restaurants, my mom always put a tiny dollop of butter on the pasta before the soup goes in. With some homemade bread, it doesn't get any better than this!!

Soft, Moist and Gooey Cinnamon Buns

Reviewed: Jan. 4, 2009
I found this recipe to be the absolute BEST for cinnamon buns! Would give it 10 stars if I could! Have tried many others, including the Clone to a Cinnabon and found this to be superior. Clone was good but not exactly a clone. I followed the recipe to a T and couldn't believe how delicious these were! I agree that this recipe should be rated much higher. Give it a try, I am sure you will agree that it is the absolute best around....and user friendly too! After about 5 tries I decided to try the Cinnamon filling sold by King Arthur Flour....What heaven that was!! No runout and strong cinnamon taste. You may want to try it for yourself!

Pork Roast with Thyme

Reviewed: Sep. 21, 2008
I used this recipe with a pork butt since that was what I had. Cut down on the vinegar to 1/4c per other suggestions. Also added olive oil and made a paste per another suggestion. Since the pork butt is slit in the middle, I rubbed half the paste in the cavity with sliced onion and rubbed the rest on the top. Also put entire roast in a baking bag. Great results! Very moist and delicious. I usually make a pork butt with just salt, pepper and garlic along with onions and other veggies in the bag. This had a great taste. First hour vinegar smell was a little worrisome but not to worry....it didn't affect the taste adversely. It was wonderful! Family scarfed it up and asked for more! Thanks for a great recipe!

Bacon Roasted Chicken

Reviewed: Sep. 21, 2008
This is exactly how my Nonna taught me to make our Thanksgiving turkey! I have used the method for chicken for years and the entire family fights over the bacon. Once in awhile a cholesterol nightmare is ok... I also added onion and citrus in the cavity. Good recipe, easy to follow and a sure winner.

Red Skinned Potato Salad

Reviewed: Sep. 12, 2008
This is a great salad! Our family has been making this same recipe for years but with the addition of crab. We prefer the real deal but imitation works well also. It's been a requested favorite at all family get togethers. Be sure to let it set for at least a couple of hours before serving...better yet, make it the day before. Enjoy!!

Grilled Sausage with Potatoes and Green Beans

Reviewed: Sep. 4, 2008
Good recipe! I gave it 4 stars because I also felt it needed a little tweeking... Added garlic to the mix and at my son's suggesion, used beer in a second packet to determine the difference. Great idea! The beer really made the difference. He told me that he and his friends often buy the large coiled sausage from the grocery, poke a hole in it to add beer, and cook the entire package on the grill for just a short time. The beer adds just enough umph to the sausage. Thanks for the basic recipe but I think I will keep using the beer!

Shrimpcargot

Reviewed: Aug. 30, 2008
This was wonderful. As other reviewers suggested, I also added Italian Bread crumbs to the mix along with the mushroom stems...(used regular white mushrooms). I am a Realtor and served these at my sunset OPEN HOUSE for potential buyers. What HUGE HIT. People seemed to stay much longer than other opens I have had and several asked for the recipe! Thanks Amby...maybe I owe you part of my commission! This will be a staple open house treat!

Spanish Rice II

Reviewed: Aug. 15, 2008
Never made Spanish Rice before so I followed other reviewers suggestions. Sauteed the onions and pepper together used red) before adding the rice but couldn't seem to get the rice t to "brown!" Maybe because I tripled the recipe due to the size of my family. The taste was good but soggy and the rice was cooked but definitely not 'browned.' Will try to make just one recipe next time to see if I can brown rice. Family ate it and said it was good, but 'soggy.' Will also chop the canned diced tomatoes more next time as I thought the pieces were too big for the dish. Thanks for the recipe.

Triple Dipped Fried Chicken

Reviewed: Sep. 7, 2005
I made this recipe exactly as directed but my first few pieces of chicken came out as if they were encased in cement! Added a bit more beer which helped a bit. Not excited about the flavor so I reverted to my old standby.... sprinkle heavily with flour, garlic, salt, pepper and mix with either cream or milk to form a batter. Was hoping this recipe would be a nice alternative but not this time...

Bread Pudding

Reviewed: Jul. 14, 2003
I was a bit hesitant at first since I had never made bread pudding before......but WOW...this was super. I did make changes after reading other reviews and added raisins, cinnamon and nutmeg. Made a mistake and added the butter to the actual bread pudding rather than the sauce.. but is only made it better! Everyone LOVED it. Cut the sugar in half and added a little more cream to the sauce. My in-laws are already asking when I will make it again! Mahalo (thanks) for this great recipe!
