Beer Butt Chicken

Reviewed: May 1, 2004
I love this recipe. The secret is to use beer - it can be n/a beer, micro beer or whatever is on sale. I have tried it with different liquids. Anything of a fermented base works well. Even wine but not as good as beer. The malt or the hops do something to the chicken. I also have tried a variation where the chicken is brined in a cinnamon, garlic peppercorn marinade for 24 hours. KILLER! I put a brown sugar cayenne rub on the chicken for a beautiful color and flavor.

Roasted Rosemary Cauliflower

Reviewed: Sep. 26, 2011
We love roasted vegetables in any combination and this is good!!! My rosemary plants were going crazy, and bought a head of cauliflower planning for something else that fell thru....this fit the bill! as another reviewer said, any veggies could be added, and yes you have to watch it, but one reviewer did like me - and i alwasy do this - roast until the veggies have color - you might think they are not done, but pull them anyway and give em a zap in the microwave. the microwave actually intesifies the flavors since the roasting has taken the vitals of the veggies to carmelization. microwave cooks from the inside out, so all that goodness stuck inside gets a chance to improve itself while your veggies are heating up

Curried Butternut Squash and Pear Soup

Reviewed: Oct. 12, 2011
This was so simple and delicious! I had bought a butternut squash, never having cooked one before, to give me inspiration. Next day, a friend called and said she had a sack full ofpears that she would never use and would I want them? Bingo - Hubby was a bit skeptical thnking it would taste bland, but really good flavor. I took the advice of others and roasted the squash, made it easier and tastier (smpled the roasted squash as I was scooping it out!)I did not have any heavy whipping cream, but had a half block of cream cheese. Read a couple other recipes and found one that used cream cheese for thickening, so I addede that. NIce creaminess, color.I served this with the Real N'Awlans Muffaletta on this site. Soup and Sandwich and darn good!

Smooth Sweet Tea

Reviewed: May 11, 2013
i have used the proportions in this recipe including the baking soda for every kind of cold tea for summer months. sometimes i use Constant Comment, sometimes i use green tea, somtimes a fruity Celestial Seasonings. i ontinue to use the bakiing soda because it does chse off the bitterness regardless of the leaves being used. and it adds that bit of saltiness that every sweet thing needs to make it work. i really wanted a good raspberry tea rx, used this and a few drops of raspberry extract. half a gallon gone in a few hours, and it was just me!!!

Chilled Lemonade Dessert

Reviewed: Jul. 6, 2013
This was SO easy and tasty. Great for a hot summer night when someone else in the household ate all the ice cream and forgot to replace it. Grandkids loved it. used the rest of lemonade can to make lemonade with 1/3 less water. I grated the lemon rind, but, will probably leave it out next time and use as a garnish instead. The creamy texture with the chewy bits didn't work for me. May try similar concocotions with other frozenjuice blends and jellos.

Beautiful Salad

This is a great salad for winter months. It just brightens any meal, especially a hearty, creamy soup. Try it with the Hawaiian Bread I from this site!

Cherry Almond Coffeecake

Reviewed: Feb. 18, 2007
I made this more like a cake, but served it for an office morning get together - they ate it all! I used a 9 x 13 pan, but it took more like 45 minutes to bake. I kept testing. Then I made it with a carrot cake mix with apple pie topping. Still did the glaze, but used finely chopped walnuts. The whole thing did not make it to the office. It was first reviewed by my resident taster, my husband,sometime between midnight and 7 a.m.! He obviously approved, because 4 pieces were missing.

Amy's Lavender Lemonade

Reviewed: Sep. 15, 2009
I love lavender anything though had not thought too much about drinking it, but I have been making a honey lemonade for years. So I used honey instead of sugar once I finished steeping the lavender. Equal parts lemon juice and honey. The lavender was such a nice new flavor. Very refreshing, almost decadent, one of those summer things that builds pleasant memories.

Sugar Glazed Walnuts

Reviewed: Feb. 13, 2012
Timing on the microwave for this is crucial. My batch got burned on the edges but had enough in the center to save it. Unlimited possibiities for varying flavorings with the ease of this recipe

Annie's Fruit Salsa and Cinnamon Chips

Reviewed: May 17, 2007
This was so delicious. I made it for a Cinco de Mayo office potluck. No one had thought about "breakfast" fare, and this was devoured! I used frozen berries from last years harvest, threw in a fresh pear that was on hand and was actually looking for any other fruit I thought might be great. I used homemade cherry preserves for the jam ingredient. I think any jam or jelly would be find- whatever was on hand! Actually, any fruit, frozen or fresh would be good. I added some chopped crystllized ginger too (what's a salsa without some "ZING!"?)

Pecan Pie Bars II

Reviewed: Dec. 30, 2007
Easy and tasty! I brought it for Thanksgiving. We had several pumpkin pies and apple pies. Having the choice of a "bite" of pecan pie was a great hit after a huge meal, but wouldn't be Thanksgiving without it flavor! I got many raves. Brought it to our office potluck just before Christmas and there was nothing left after 20 minutes!

Slow Cooker Western Omelet

Reviewed: Jul. 31, 2008
after reading this recipe 5 years ago, I suggested to our chamber of commerce director we do this for our food booth at the annual Senior Pro Rodeo only make it as a filling for breakfast burritos. Our booth is there only for the participants. We have to have the coffee hot and donuts fresh at 7:30 in the morning, because they are getting ready to go through their trials for the nights line-up. I found this and tweaked it for 50 servings, substituted cooked, ground sausage for ham, nixed the bell pepper, bought flour tortillas,salsa and extra shredded cheese. We cook this overnight at home, bring the crockpot to the food booth and assemble to make breakfast burritos. We take a tortilla, a decent serving of the omelet, an extra sprinkle of cheese, wrap up individually in foil, and lay them in another crockpot that has a damp towel at the bottom. the damp towel keeps everything steamy hot. as they are bought, they put their own salsa on. We made them in 25 serving batches.(Two smaller crockpots) word spread quickly we had something better than donuts. we have sold out every year after the 1st year (once they found out) we also found the second morning (after the first nights show, afterwards they went into town for the dance and drank alot) we sold out faster on the second morning than the first morning. so we didn't make as much the first morning, and had more for the second morning. it is not labor intensive, and we 3 volunteers get together the night before the rodeo

Bifana

Reviewed: Aug. 2, 2009
I had made this a couple times before this review and loved it, as did my husband. But I couldn't remember the name! After receiving an enormous bounty of rhubarb from a co-worker, went looking again for this recipe. The chutney is a great way to use rhubarb and very flavorful. Good with chicken - as I have used it more with chicken than pork!

Eggs Benedict with Salmon

Reviewed: Dec. 12, 2009
Very nice play on Eggs Benedict. I used dark rye because I had it. Any bread or muffin or biscuit would have been fine. The sauce is a keeper- I liked the original recipe but can't follow a recipe without making it mine. Added a bit more dijon and put the capers in the sauce. Can hardly wait for a brunch to serve company!

Hamburger Steak with Onions and Gravy

Reviewed: Feb. 8, 2010
this is a great recipe for trying to kick up the week night dinner. I scaled it for 2. Shake it up. don't make burger patties. shape them to be a bit oblong like a steak. more special. douse the patties with worchestersire before browning for a good glaze. started the onions in oil, but sprinkled with some sugar to help that carmelization happen. and added a tablesppon of butter for our 2 servings. added a bit more oil for the patties, let them get good and brown, for flavor in gravy. Didn't feel the gravy stuff was enough and added more flour to the roux of onions and more beef broth. and sherry. Red wine would have been good too . But i alwasy have sherry. Served it with noodles. i considered the addition of sour cream for the gravy, but there were plenty of good flavors there already. For the 2 of us, it was more meal, got a great lunch!

Slow Cooker Stuffing

Reviewed: Dec. 3, 2011
this was excellent! and it sure solved the time coordination and space problem of serving Thanksgiving! I was afraid of naysayers since there was no stuffing in the birds, but not a single complaint! I read many of the reviews and played the liquid by ear - did not use all called for. Used some bread cubes from ends I had saved, filled out with storebought bread cubes. I did use 3 eggs since our eggs were from our friends and smaller than commercial. One of the kids told her mom the stuffing was "to die for!"

Slow Cooker Lasagna

Reviewed: Jan. 16, 2012
5 STARS for CONCEPT!!!Not sure why I had not thought of this myself!!! Great way to make ahead for a busy day and have a great meal! I read this recipe and wanted to try it, thinking i had all the ingredients, so planned on it. Then found the lasagna noodles I had were No Boil. Wasn't sure how it would work. Used them anyway. I have a HUGE crockpot and there is just 2 of us, so I often make smaller versions of recipes in Pyrex or stoneware casseroles that fit inside my crockpot. This was the case again, so made a smaller version in a smaller casserole and placed inside of crockpot. worrying about the no boil noodles, i poured some water in the crockpot until it was about halfway up the casserole dish, a baine marie so to speak, and set it for 4 hours. PERFECT!!!! I used homemade marinara, and had some turkey italian sausage that needed to be used up. Added a can of mushrooms. YUM!! Will try again because I LOVE using my crockpot!!!
