Bread Pudding II

Reviewed: Jun. 8, 2013
I went directly by the directions. I've never had bread pudding nor have I made it before today. I'm not a novice so I started to spray the pan in prep of baking, but since the directions didn't state to do this nor did the video tip, I didn't. I thought since neither stated to do so, the butter I drizzled must be the reason. I had to blast it to get it out of the pan.

Quick Banana Nut Bread

Reviewed: May 4, 2013
I love this recipe. It's so easy. I read reviews and added another banana for more banana taste. I, also, used banana creme pudding instead of vanilla. I used thinly sliced almonds instead of pecans because that is what I had on hand. Oh my gosh!! My grandchildren were thrilled to wake up Saturday morning with this amazing smell wafting through the house. I would think many different cake mixes, fruits, and puddings could be substituted...mmmmmm pumpkin added instead of bananas. It could be endless depending on one's imagination.

Grandma's Favorite Chicken

Reviewed: May 28, 2010
I used leg and thigh quarters, divided. I pulled the skin off and trimmed off as much fat as I could. I know the skin and fat gives great flavor, but I'm trying to reduce my fat intake. Besides, the cooked skin is not attractive, as well as awkward to remove from hot chicken. I quickly browned the chicken in butter in my stovetop and oven safe casserole pot, instead of putting it on top of the salted and peppered chicken. I added whole garlic cloves after the chicken was a nice golden brown and sauted for only a few minutes, ensuring the garlic didn't burn. I added the layers of vegetables as listed, parsley flakes, garlic powder, and black pepper. Instead of adding salt and water I used homemade chicken broth. I covered the casserole pot with it's tight sealing lid to bake in the oven. This recipe reminds me of a rustic French dish I've had in the past. One could add wine as part of the liquid if desired. It is a simple recipe that can be taylored to what one has on hand. The smell is wonderful and tantalizing. My family's mouths watered in anticipation of the meal. I served with crusty french rolls and a salad. The broth was amazing. Thanks, Melissa.

Fried Onion Rings

Reviewed: Dec. 12, 2009
Oh my gosh, these are sooooooooooooooooo good. My bottle of carbonated water was a bit flat, but these still turned out great. I lightly salted while the onion rings were hot. Everyone couldn't stop eating them. Thanks so much for the post.

Kerr Lake Catfish Stew

Reviewed: Nov. 17, 2009
The acidity of the tomatoes prevented the potatoes from becoming tender in only 30 minutes. I cooked the mixture over an hour and a half, checking the potatoes every 15 minutes after the initial 30 minutes to ensure they were softened. I tasted for seasoning and added two teaspoons of Emeril's Cajun spice mixture (recipe for spice mixture at and tripled the hot sauce before adding the catfish. I have never eaten fish in a stew or soup, but since I'm trying to incorporate more fish into my diet, I wanted to give this recipe a try. The texture of the fish was strange to me, at first. I have to say it smelled wonderful while cooking. I almost used olive oil and left the bacon out to save calories and make it healthier. I decided to go ahead and stay as close as possible to the recipe as written. I love bacon in anything, but I was surprised the scrumptious undertone the bacon gave to this recipe. I'm sure that accounts for the hike in calories. Oh well, I'll try olive oil next time. I think chicken or pork could be substituted for catfish in this recipe with very good results.

Irish Chicken and Dumplings

Reviewed: Aug. 12, 2009
I love this recipe and have made it several times. The last time I made it I cut the vegetables in uniform size because I wanted to make chicken pot pie out of the leftovers (minus dumplings, of course). I reheated chicken mixture in the microwave until just warm and used packaged pie dough for the bottom and top crust. I baked the pie in the oven until golden brown. Voila!!!Fabulous!!! My family loved both meals...cooked once and served twice. They didn't even realize it was leftovers.

Meatball Minestrone

Reviewed: Dec. 27, 2008
Surprisingly good. I didn't have beef bouillon, so I used chicken bouillon. I used a 16 oz package of frozen Italian vegetables, which included broccoli, cauliflower, and zucchini, instead of the mixed vegetables and macaroni instead of spaghetti. It makes a hearty flavorful soup that, considering my changes, is very flexible to what one has on hand.

After-Thanksgiving Turkey Soup

Reviewed: Dec. 20, 2008
This soup was wonderful...very creamy and decadent. It is difficult to believe a soup so sumptious was made using a turkey carcass, something I used to throw away. I won't be tossing another one. I put the carcass into a bag and freeze it immediately after dinner. I make the soup on a cold day when comfort is needed. Thanks so much for the post.

I loved it!!! It was easy to prepare from ingredients I already had on hand. I added a little extra spice since I added some black beans to it. Sprinkle some mexican cheese on top when served...yummy!!!!

Seasoning Blend

Reviewed: Apr. 20, 2008
I love this. It is so convenient to make a seasoning from spices I already have on hand. I love roast chicken and this is perfect. The smells fill the house, tantalizing, before tasting the chicken.

Black Pepper Beef and Cabbage Stir Fry

Reviewed: Dec. 28, 2007
I love, love, love it!!! I use more garlic and have found I don't need the cornstarch or water at the end. Maybe, I use more cabbage than listed, so it doesn't have a lot of sauce to thicken.
