Cornbread Salad I

Reviewed: Feb. 6, 2008
This salad is a surefire showstopper and makes a stunning presentation when layered as the recipe suggests. I used a clear glass 6 quart trifle bowl and made a few adjustments, and it turned out perfectly. I used 2 packages of Jiffy cornbread mix prepared as to the package directions and added double the spices, as well as a 4 ounce can of chopped green chilis, and a finely chopped onion. I used black beans instead of pintos, and used 2 cans instead of one, and 2 cans of corn. I left the bacon amount the same, but doubled the dressing, onion, green pepper, green onion and tomato, and used 2 cups of cheese as the recipe states. Certainly, you can mix everything together as others have done, but if you're looking to impress a crowd, make the extra effort, and layer this salad. It was truly the star of the show at our church potluck, both in taste and presentation. This one is going straight into my favorite recipes box, and will be enjoyed again and again. The only mistake I made was not taking copies of the recipe, as it was requested over and over, and the rave reviews left me confident that I had indeed found a "keeper!"

Farmhouse Chicken

Reviewed: Oct. 29, 2007
I doubled this recipe and baked it in a 12x20 steamtable pan for a bingo crowd, and they gobbled it up! I added 1 large chopped fresh onion, combined it with the celery and sauteed both in butter before adding it to the recipe. Also, before I added the soup mixture, I sprinkled two cups sharp cheddar cheese over the chicken. This crowd of ladies is particularly difficult to please, but they loved this! Great recipe that I'll be making again and again for the bingo babes and at home for my family!

Chocolate Chip Orange Zucchini Bread

Reviewed: Sep. 24, 2007
This bread is awesome! As a professional crafter, I often include homemade quick breads in my booth, and this has become my bestseller! I do what previous reviewers suggested and drizzle an orange glaze over the bread, use half white and half brown sugar, and because the first time I made it, I didin't have oil, I used melted shortening, and have kept using it since. I make this in the disposable mini foil pans which come with the plastic lids, and this recipe will make 4 of those. Bake them 45 instead of 50 minutes if you use the mini pans. Great, great recipe for gift giving, too...thanks so much for sharing this one!

Buttermilk Pancakes II

Reviewed: Jul. 3, 2006
Without a doubt, the best pancakes I've ever made, and I've tried many! I did add a little vanilla, but that's our personal taste. These freeze beautifully and go from freezer to toaster to table with no problem. Simply place them in single layers between sheets of parchment or waxed paper, put them on a cookie sheet and freeze. After they're frozen, remove from the cookie sheet and place in ziploc bags, then remove and toast as needed. Perfection! Thanks for a great recipe that we'll use again and again!

Shoepeg Corn Casserole

Reviewed: Nov. 24, 2005
I got this recipe years ago from the mother of a close friend, and it has been a family favorite ever since. This is the best recipe, not at all bland; however, I do use sharp cheddar cheese.

Sausage Gravy I

Reviewed: Feb. 28, 2004
I am the original poster of this recipe, (long ago lost my password and username ID, so am now using this one) and I must say I am overwhelmed (but not surpised) by all the great reviews! This truly is the very best recipe there is, and it is so easy! A few tips for you, though. The salt and pepper amounts I listed in this recipe are only a guide...certainly, you can adjust them to your own taste. Also, I traditionally use Jimmy Dean sage sausage to make this, but the Maple flavor also makes it delicious. One last thing...to truly get the taste of the "South" be sure to pass the Tabasco sauce! But use it sparingly if your taste buds are faint of heart! Enjoy, and thanks for so many wnoderful comments!
