Dorsey's Fried Oysters

Reviewed: Dec. 31, 2009
Excellent recipe! I never would have thought to use pancake mix! I made this with 1/2 pint of oysters so I cut everything in half except the egg. I didn't have "regular" pancake mix so I used whole wheat buttermilk pancake mix. I used a scant 1/4 cup of mix then added a little more, bit by bit until I reached the desired consistency. The whole wheat mix added an extra crunch to the oysters, which was a bit like cornmeal... and very delicious. I added this one to my recipe box & will make it again!

Easy Caramelized Onion Pork Chops

Reviewed: Nov. 6, 2009
This was fabulous when I made it tonight but I made a few modifications. The total cooking time ended up being closer to an hour than 45 min. I browned the chops, removed them then caramelized the onions, adding 2. t. of sugar & 1/2 t. paprika. Added back the chops, then used 1 c. of beef boullion (used the concentrated paste, Better Than Boullion). Simmered covered 20 min., turned then simmered another 15 min. Removed chops turn heat to high, whisked in a paste made of 2 T butter & 2 T. flour, let it bubble a couple minutes while whisking. Turned down the heat to a simmer, added the chops back in... spooning the gravy over the chops. Covered and simmered another 5 minutes. Placed chops on a platter, gravy in a bowl. Served with steamed new potatoes & green beans. Fabulous! Hubby was thrilled at the new addition to our menu.

Zucchini Tomato Soup II

Reviewed: Aug. 23, 2009
Great recipe! The only things I did differently was that I used a hand blender to puree, doubled the spices (from the sugar to the hot sauce), then added a 1/2 c. of 2% milk at the end. EXCELLENT!! I'm saving this one to my recipe box. Thank you!

Simple Baked Apples

Reviewed: Jan. 17, 2009
Great recipe! I made a couple minor modifications by using a pre-mixed "apple pie spice blend" instead of the separate spices and then topping the apple mixture with crushed gingersnap cookies then dotting it with butter before baking. This was a big hit with my friends at the potluck dinner last night!

Hazelnut-Crusted Salmon

Reviewed: Aug. 18, 2008
I followed your basic recipe EXCEPT I added a couple teaspoons of honey Dijon mustard to regular mayo (as suggested by another reviewer) and used almonds, dill & lemon zest instead of hazelnuts, tarragon & orange zest. I also added a light sprinkling of grated Parmesan cheese to the salmon 5 minutes before the fish was done. Served with lemon wedges. YUM!

Melenzana Ali Olio

Reviewed: Dec. 9, 2007
I was looking for a recipe almost exactly like this one that my Italian grandmother used to make. She called it something different but I don't know how to spell it. It was pronounced like moo-lin-yahm. My grandmother made this in a crock (with the layered plate method)and it took a couple of days, but other than that, this is pretty much the same recipe. Thank you very much!

Extreme Banana Nut Bread 'EBNB'

Reviewed: Dec. 9, 2007
This is the absolute best banana nut bread ever! I've made it about 10 times now and will never use another recipe. (I'm getting ready to make it again today.) UPDATED 12.12.09: While I still agree that this recipe is THE best one ever, I decided to make a few modifications based upon some of the comments. From the start, I split the sugar so it's 1 cup each white & brown sugar. I also added 1 t. vanilla extract & 2 t. cinnamon. Today I decided to also add 1/2 c. of rolled oats and 1/2 cup of dried, unsweetened cherries. I also upped the overripe bananas to 2.5 cups. Baked it for 65 minutes (altho I checked it at 50 minutes w/a toothpick, then again at 60 min - be sure to reset your oven to 350 degrees after checking because it loses heat during the process!). I let them cool, wrapped each in plastic wrap, then alum. foil. Put one in a zip freezer bag & put it in the freezer for Christmas. The other one went in the fridge for a couple hours. We just pulled it out to try it & decided to KEEP these new additions. Thanks SASEIGEL for posting the original version!!

DeeAnn's Cheesy Bacon Cabbage

Reviewed: Oct. 7, 2006
I added 1/2 of a thinly sliced onion, 1 shredded carrot, 1 sliced stalk of celery, and 2 T. extra virgin olive oil. I also used all of the bacon fat instead of only 1 T. This was very very good.
