Sour Cream Waffles

Reviewed: Jan. 27, 2009
This was very tasty and even using fat free sour cream and light (fat free & sugar free) berry flavored yogurt still produced a light, flavorful waffle with a nice crispy crust. I did keep the vinegar in there, which I think makes it crispier on the outside. I also added vanilla to the batter. Using the berry yogurt was nice because it added some really nice flavor. We used some thawed blueberries with splenda and a little vanilla to top them. YUMMY!

Cream Cheese Cupcakes

Reviewed: Jan. 24, 2009
These were very tasty and SO easy! Will try them in mini-muffin size next time for the perfect 2 bite buffet dessert. I did add 1 tablespoon of good Mexican vanilla instead of the 1.5 teaspoons. And for my filling, I used a nice lemon cream pie filling, piped into the divot with a large star tip to make it look pretty. Garnished with a little bit of lemon zest on top. Beautiful AND tasty! It was fun to watch them cupcakes rise in the oven then fall as soon as you take them out.

Grilled Chicken Thighs Tandoori

Reviewed: May 26, 2008
This is a very flavorful and easy recipe! We will definitely make it again. I did the spices at 1.5 strength (one of the spice lids popped off and I ended up with too much, so I just compensated equally with all the other spices. But the yogurt amount stayed the same. I did add a wee touch of cayenne for a little back of the mouth heat, but just a touch. And a bit of lemon juice brightened it up and helped the marinade permeate all the way to the bone. The chicken marinated for approximately 16 hours. Everyone raved about it and it made the most flavorful skin! The hubbster grilled it over high direct heat to crisp things up then moved it to indirect heat. Total cook time was probably about an hour that way, but boy was it good!! Thanks for the recipe!

Corn, Sweet Onion, and Tomato Salad

Reviewed: May 10, 2008
Yes, rating my own recipe, but mostly to let people know they need to drain the canned corn well and squeeze the liquid from the tomatoes before they chop them. Otherwise, the mixture gets a little soupy as it sits. Also, use the plain, unsweetened and unflavored rice vinegar. The combination of the rice vinegar with the lime juice creates a cleaner, crisper taste. And for fun, taste and to make it even prettier, don't be afraid to add a little of the lime zest. I also have found that the "Niblets" type of canned corn seems to work best in this recipe. Either that or very lightly blanched fresh corn.

Pistachio Fluff Fruit Salad

Reviewed: Oct. 19, 2006
It's very sweet, but oh so good. Add the juice of a lime for some extra zing that cuts the sweetness a bit. Works really well if you coat the bananas with the lime juice too.

Lemon Mushroom Herb Chicken

Reviewed: Mar. 17, 2005
VERY tasty! I modified my flour dredging spices a bit and used rosemary instead of thyme. Was a little salty but adjustable. Next time I will use half olive oil/half butter and use more wine/less stock for a little more tang. I don't do capers, so I ommitted those. I added sliced fresh mushrooms at end of the saute process before adding the liquids. Hubby raved!

Pistachio Cream Cheese Fingers

Reviewed: Mar. 14, 2005
These are really excellent. They're moist and delicate but they hold up great for give-aways. We call them "Martian Fingers' at our house and my niece has said she'd never talk to me again if I didn't make them for her every year. So I do. :)

Pepperoncini Beef

Reviewed: Mar. 10, 2005
This was REALLY tasty! And so easy! I did add some sliced shallots and about tripled the amount of garlic (we're big fans here). Served it on french rolls and melted some provolone cheese over the top. Be sure to add some of the peppers to your sandwich! Oh, and it was even better the second day. I wasn't sure it was going to be enough liquid, but I let it stand as it was and it was some of the most tender pot roast we've ever done in the slow cooker. I let it go on the low setting for 10 hours. I would recommend that because I tried a piece at the 7 hour mark and it really wasn't tender yet. That extra time really does the trick! Next time, I think I will add some bay leaf and maybe a few red pepper flakes for just a little more oomph. This was definitely not too spicy. This was also the first time our cats circled the counter like sharks all day while it was cooking and we use our slowcooker all the time! LOL

Southern Living Magazine's Chicken-Fried Steak

Reviewed: Jan. 15, 2005
Really good crust! We used whole wheat Ritz crackers because that was what we had and whizzed them up in the food processor. I especially like the addition of the baking powder since it makes the crust nice and puffy yet crispy. We used a packet gravy mix instead, so I can't vouch for the gravy part, but the meat itself was superb! I'm allergic to peanut oil, so we used a stick of crisco and some vegetable oil to raise the smoke point. Will DEFINITELY make again!!

Cheesy Ham and Hash Brown Casserole

Reviewed: Dec. 29, 2004
Although the recipe would be a bit bland without addtions, I think this is great! The creamy consistency is so good! Here's what I added: *a bit of extra ham because I wanted to use it up *garlic and onion powders *cayenne pepper for a bit of zing *black pepper *mix of chedder and parm on top added at the last 20 minutes to prevent burning Here's what I changed: *substituted cream of celery and cream of chicken soups (low sodium) *lite sour cream and only about 8oz since people said it was liquidy with all of it added. Things I would recommend: Crumbled sausage, green onions, other sauteed onions, parsley, zucchini, etc.

Baked Ziti I

Reviewed: Jun. 8, 2004
I thought this was really tasty. We added a couple of zucchini, an entire bag of baby spinach (gotta get the veggies in there so the hubbster doesn't notice!) and we used sausage instead of ground beef. The store was out of regular provolone and only had smoked, so I skipped that and used mozzarella instead. Very hearty and good. Was even better the second day! The single recipe makes A LOT, so be warned. You could easily halve the recipe and make a 9x9 pan. Spices were good and it was relatively quick and easy. The family really liked it!

Eggnog Thumbprints

Reviewed: Dec. 10, 2001
These cookies are AMAZING!! They're really easy and they really do taste like eggnog. At first, the rum flavor will be strong (you can always use rum flavoring for the non-alcoholic types) but give them a day and they mellow to this absolutely addictive concoction that is really hard to resist. Just watch the kids after these things have mellowed. Our little relatives went nuts for these...well, so did the big ones!

Tamale Pie

Reviewed: Oct. 22, 2000
The flavors in this are excellent and the cornmeal base is easier to prepare than it sounds. I've made this a few times now and I've tweaked it a little here and there, using 1% milk instead of the canned milk and water. I also used a jalapeno salsa instead of the green chiles in one batch along with a bunch of cilantro and it was fantastic. The good thing is that you can pretty much add what you want to the meat mixture and it comes out great. One hint, you might want to lightly spray your pan with non-stick spray.
