Strawberry Cobbler I

Reviewed: Mar. 8, 2012
I forgot to take a picture but basically it looked just like a few on here. I did not change anything except used 1/4 t. salt instead of 1/2. This was not my kind of cobbler. My aunt used to make a strawberry cobbler that was awesome. This was not it while OK I found the strawberries much too tart, not enough liquid for our liking and the biscuit like topping somewhat hard. It all comes down to preferences. I'll keep looking.

Old Fashioned Pineapple Upside-Down Cake

Reviewed: Feb. 27, 2012
I read a lot of Pineapple Upside Down Cake recipes before I settled on this one. I had made one similar years before with a recipe from a Southern living magazine. I made this exactly as written (I think you should to rate it properly.) except I did not add the last T. of butter...did not have anymore. Anyway, I'm not sure what I expected but this was not it. Beating the egg whites then folding in the yellows and flour mixture made a strange looking batter, to me. When I checked it at 30 min.s the batter was still very liquidy, turned oven up to 350 and cooked 5 more min.s. It was done. Tasted ok warm from the oven...not so good later. Wasn't a big hit at my house. May just us a recipe with a mix next time. I love pineapple and still want to make a good one.

Butter Pound Cake

Reviewed: Feb. 7, 2012
I've been looking for a pound cake recipe just like this for a while now. I got to where I did not like my old one anymore but this, now this is a keeper. Even 5 days later still great maybe better. Thanks, Diana Moore for the recipe!

Barbequed Pork Ribs

Reviewed: Jan. 16, 2012
The last ribs I made many, many years ago were tough. We always had them out. Decided I'd try them again. Thawed 4 lbs of ribs overnight. Made a brine of salt & brown sugar. Brined ribs in cold water for 5 hrs. Boiled 1 hr. Sauced and refriderated for 2 hrs. Grilled about 30 mins. Delish-the only thing I'd change would be use my husbands recipe for BBQ sauce. His is better. You might want to add a dash or two of Tabasco sauce for a little kick. Overall a good recipe.

Sweet Candied Orange and Lemon Peel

Reviewed: Dec. 27, 2011
I don't know what I expected. I followed directions including some suggestions. I brought the peel from cold water to boiling four times. I let it boil 5 min.s each time. So not very different from the recipe of boiling 20 min.s.There was no bitter taste at all. I left the peel in the simple syrup for quite a while and it coated very good. I put my sugar to dust the candy with in the food processer and had very fine sugar. Dried out over night on DR table...looked beautiful. However no one liked it and no one ate it! I hate to give bad reviews. I am giving this a 4 b/c I think it turned out well. It just wasn't liked by the people at my house. Sorry

Chicken Pot Pie on the Run

Reviewed: Nov. 16, 2011
This is not the recipe that I always use. Mine makes way too much for 2 people. Tried this and it was very good and just the right size!

Sweet Potato Pie IX

Reviewed: Oct. 31, 2009
Being from GA I had never had a pumpkin pie! It was always Sweet Potato that my family made for the holidays. I had been wanting one for some time now. My husband's family is from KY - Pumpkin was it and I never got SP. So I decided it was time to try to make one like I had as a child. Store bought have way too much spice and just didn't do it for me. This pie was very close to what I remember. Recipe calls for 3 sweet potatoes. Sweet potatoes come in all sizes and shapes. I wish that it had stated how many cups. I ended up with 4 cups of potatoes. I only used 2 cup of sugar and that was plenty, any more and I think it would have been too sweet, as some people have said in their review. I did not have nutmeg, so on one pie I sprinkled a little cinnamon. Both were good with and without it. Other than a little less sugar the only thing that I would change would be to add maybe 1 teaspoon of salt to the mixture, other than that it is a good recipe that I am keeping. Oh, and I started checking it at 45 min.s so I did not burn it. The pies were ready at 50 min.s but ovens cook differently. I start checking though at 45 min.s.

Apple Stuffed Pork Chops

Reviewed: Oct. 24, 2009
This recipe has promise. I made it exactly as stated,except that I did not have celery. I think to review & rate a recipe honestly that you SHOULD make it the first time the way that it is written, otherwise how is your review honest? With that said, and with no celery, I liked the recipe. I made my own fresh bread crumbs. I did chop my apples rather large b/c other reviews said that thier apples turned to mush. Next time I'll chop them smaller & add some pecans.

Colonial Brown Bread

Reviewed: Oct. 24, 2009
I am allergic to yeast, so I have been trying recipes for a bread that I can eat but also that my family likes. This is the best so far. I only had one loaf pan, so I halved the recipe. I can't have buttermilk so I used 2% with a tablespoon of lemon juice for each cup and let it sit for a while. Baked at 350* for 45 min.s not 1 hour. It turned out perfectly. It is a recipe that could be changed by the amount of sugar and spices added. I think I will try it with nuts and cinnamon next time.

Baked Garlic Parmesan Chicken

Reviewed: Oct. 13, 2009
I was looking for something quick, easy and tasteful to do with BLSL chicken breast. This fit the bill. The only thing that I did differently was to use Panko Bread Crumbs with Italian Seasoning. The crumb mixture with the parmesan would also be good on fish or pork chops. Will keep to use again. UPDATE: I cooked this again last night using the Panko Bread crumbs and we loved it. This is an easy, easy way to cook BLSL chicken, that is tasty.

Slow Cooker Apple Crisp

Reviewed: Oct. 12, 2009
I haven't had much success lately with apples for some reason. I had also been wanting to try a dessert in the crock pot pot. This fit the bill for both. I did not have any success with this either and wasted a lot of ingredients. First of all it only made 6 servings so I had to double it to have enough. I have one of the new larger slow cookers so it was no problem. I used all granny smith apples. Followed directions to the letter. I left it in the slow cooker for a couple of hours on low and then uncovered it for the last hour. Finally to keep it warm for dinner, I kept it on the "keep warm" setting". I should have turned it off b/c it burned in the left end very badly, although it did not smell burned. One of my daughters liked it - no one else cared for it. Most of it stayed in the 'fridge for the rest of the week and no one warmed any up to eat again. I agree with rae on the Apple Mush. It was very sweet. I give this a thumbs down. Even with the lid off the topping never got remotely crisp. The white ceramic bowl in my cooker is stained and I still need some good apple recipes. This makes the third one I have tried. When I told my daughter what I was cooking,she said, "Oh, no! Mom you always have trouble with apples!" and I did. . . . perhaps it was me but I have to give this only 3 stars at best b/c I doubled it that could have been the problem.

Homesteader Cornbread

Reviewed: Apr. 16, 2009
My family did not like this recipe. I made it exactly as written. I usually do that the first time I make a recipe, then note what I will change the next time. I am surprized at all the good reviews. It was heavy, too sweet for our taste and did not have a corn taste at all. I am in the South and this is not like any cornbread that I have ever had. Sorry, I will not be making this again. It just wasn't for us.

Easy, Speedy Corn Muffins

Reviewed: Apr. 16, 2009
I cooked these for dinner last night. They were fast, simple, with few ingredients, easy, with only one bowl and economical. Good for when you only have a little time. I filled the muffin cups up 2/3 and instead of 12, I got 15.

Southern Candied Sweet Potatoes

Reviewed: Apr. 16, 2009
Easy recipe - Turned out perfect. I did change a few minor things. I reduced to white sugar to 1 1/2 cups and added a 1/2 cup brown sugar. I did not add the vanilla because the taste did not seem to need it. I cooked these in the old southern tradition by using an iron skillet. It made the presentation look appetizing. This goes in my recipe box as a keeper.

My family LOVED this recipe. I had to double it to have enough, but I followed the directions exactly and would not change a thing. It will definitely go into my recipe box.

Easiest, Most Delicious Meringue Buttercream

Reviewed: Apr. 14, 2009
I can't say enough good things about this recipe: Simple ingredients, Easy instructions, Wonderful taste and texture. I am definitely keeping this one. As others have said, the only thing that I did differently was to cook the eggs to 160 degrees. It turned out perfectly. I don't see it mentioned anywhere, however after I frosted the cake, I did place it in the 'fridge fora while and it only got better.
