Rich White Chocolate Cranberry Cookies

Reviewed: Jan. 11, 2015
We liked these. I omitted the coconut but added some chopped Macadamia Nuts. Do not over bake these. They are a flatter cookie but very tender with crispy edges.

No Knead Bran Bread

Reviewed: Jan. 11, 2015
I should have trusted my instincts and skipped this recipe. The amount of liquid to flour / bran is way off. Even using less flour and more water it could not be salvaged.

Marinated Mushrooms with Blue Cheese

Reviewed: Jan. 10, 2015
This recipe has so much potential! Delicious as written but think of adding sliced red onions, black olives, broccoli florets - the options are endless! I used a good Olive Oil and white Champagne Vinegar. Blended the dressing together with an hand held immersion blender and then stirred in the crumbled blue cheese. I can't believe this has been waiting for a picture for 14 years! Thanks so much for a great recipe, MICHELLECA. You have a KEEPER here!

Potato Bacon Corn Chowder

Reviewed: Jan. 10, 2015
Don't let the scale of this recipe scare you off. 3 gallons of soup is 50 servings. Use the "Change Servings" feature to scale it back. The one thing I don't care for is soggy bacon - I would prefer to reserve the crispy bacon and use it as a garnish. Using the bacon drippings adds a lot of flavor and of course you could always add some diced ham if you wanted to.

Cauliflower Quiche

Reviewed: Jan. 10, 2015
We really enjoyed this. The way the recipe is written makes it seem more complicated than it needs to be. Here is what I did to stream line this and eliminate the blender and a couple of bowls. Put the cauliflower on to steam. While the cauliflower was steaming, melt the 2 Tablespoons butter in a skillet add the finely chopped mushrooms (next time I would add some finely chopped onion too) Add the flour and cook for a few minutes, add the half & half (I use low fat milk instead) stir to create a thick sauce. Mine was about the consistency of Condensed Cream of Mushroom soup. Separate the eggs putting the yolks into a large bowl and the whites into the mixer bowl. Add the green onions, Parmesan cheese & seasoning to the yolks and stir well. Add the steamed and slightly cooled cauliflower and using a fork, mash and stir until well mixed and the cauliflower is slightly mashed. Add the mushroom / white sauce & stir well. Beat the egg whites and fold in. This fit nicely into a 9" deep dish pie pan. Grease the pie pan well or this will stick! It baked perfectly in 35 minutes. I omitted the curry powder and next time I would definitely add it. Thanks for a healthy low carb breakfast.

Vegetarian Hoppin' John

Reviewed: Jan. 8, 2015
This is really good! I added red bell pepper with the onions. Upped the Cajun seasoning to 1 tsp. Perfect for Vegetarian guests or would work nicely as a side dish or healthy lunch. Thanks!

Hoppin' Juan

Reviewed: Jan. 8, 2015
Very good. Spicy? Yes! That can be toned down though to suit your tastes. So easy! I used some leftover ham chunks instead of the bacon. Delicious. Thanks!

Black-Eyed Peas and Rice

Reviewed: Jan. 8, 2015
This is really, really good! So easy too. I used drained canned black eyed peas, more ham than was called for. (I had a bunch of leftover ham from the holidays) Added a few red pepper flakes and a healthy shake of Cajun seasoning. Delicious and it is ready to just minutes. Did I say this is a KEEPER? Yes, it is!

Brown Butter and Chocolate Oatmeal Cookies

Reviewed: Jan. 8, 2015
A very nice recipe although not much different than Oatmeal Cookies with Chocolate Chips. I was hoping the browned butter would have a more pronounced taste. They hold their shape well. Thanks!

Simple Cream Cheese and Ham Spread

Reviewed: Jan. 7, 2015
This was good, although I didn't have the English mustard with tumeric. I would use a lot more green onions next time - they add a really nice flavor, also I used more ham than was called for. Next time I will try to have the right mustard on hand. Thanks!

Kansas Quail

Reviewed: Jan. 7, 2015
What is not to love? Bacon and Mushrooms, Yum! The pre-cooked (very thin) bacon would work well here.

Extreme Veggie Scrambled Eggs

Reviewed: Jan. 7, 2015
Any veggies would work with this, I added sliced mushrooms and used red peppers. I think 1/4 cup of olive oil is too much - I used just enough to barely coat the bottom of the skillet. I didn't want to add the black beans and have them muddle the colors of the other food so those I added at the end, next time I would probably just skip them altogether.

Simple Scalloped Potatoes with Ham

Reviewed: Jan. 7, 2015
This has great potential but the baking time & amount of sauce is way off. These needed at least 1 hour at 400. The top was brown and they looked done at 30 minutes but the potatoes were not cooked through. I returned them to the oven, tented with foil to prevent further browning for another 30 minutes. 3 cups of Alfredo sauce was too much for the amount of potatoes. The bottom of the dish was swimming in sauce. The flavor was really good and with a few changes these would be great.

Bonnie's Fried Cabbage

Reviewed: Jan. 6, 2015
I really like cabbage cooked like this. I don't think the butter is needed, there is plenty of bacon drippings to do the job. One note, if you are not adding any water, be careful to not burn the cabbage and onions. Even just a bit of water to start out helps prevent burning until the cabbage starts releasing it's juices.

Hot and Sour Soup with Bean Sprouts

Reviewed: Jan. 5, 2015
This was just OK for us. I know there are a lot of kinds of Hot and Sour but this one missed the mark for us. First - I think White Vinegar is a must (the Sour part) and White Pepper instead of black pepper gives it the Hot part) Overall, this needs too much tweaking to even be the same recipe. Sorry

Honey Glazed Carrots and Pears

Reviewed: Jan. 4, 2015
I used a very crisp pears, steam the carrots for about 8 minutes and then tossed the pears into the steamer and steamed them for just a few more minutes. The amount of butter / glaze is over kill. I scaled that way back, just enough to lightly coat the carrots and pears. The pears are naturally sweet as are the carrots, they just need a light coating of glaze. The cinnamon in the glaze is a nice touch. Very good!

Baked Ham with Glaze

Reviewed: Jan. 4, 2015
This glaze was a hit with those that like glazed ham. I heated the ham in a turkey sized cooking bag with a little ginger ale. Once warm, I took some of the ham and glazed it and left the rest I plain. This worked well for everyone. Remember, ham is fully cooked to begin with, I recommend heating at a lower temperature to avoid it dry out.

Not So Sweet Baked Ham

Reviewed: Jan. 4, 2015
I love ham that tastes like HAM. I would suggest using a Turkey sized oven bag to heat the ham - it really protects the meat and keeps it moist.

Creamy and Crispy Scalloped Potatoes

Reviewed: Jan. 4, 2015
Excellent! A classic recipe that is sure to please. Baking at 400 gives you the crunchy top while the middle is creamy goodness.
