Custard Bread Pudding

Reviewed: Oct. 28, 2008
I found this to be an excellent recipe just as it is. Simple and good. I was lazy, however, and used canned lemon pie filling instead of the sauce and it worked great.

The Best Chicken Fried Steak

Reviewed: Feb. 19, 2011
Great recipe. I've always had a problem with the crust coming off the steak during the frying, but didn't happen with this one and the crust is so nice and light. I used sirloin steak and pounded it to 1/4 inch. It was so tender you could have cut it with a fork. Think this crust method would work great with chicken or pork as well.

Sweet Baby Carrots

Reviewed: Feb. 19, 2011
Will use this one again with a couple of modifications. We don't need extra sauce to dip bread in so just made half as much sauce as called for and used the 1 lb package of baby carrots. It was plenty. It was a tad sweet so will decrease the honey and brown sugar a bit next time. Also steamed the carrots instead of cooking in water. The flavor and texture were fantastic.

Homemade Focaccia Bread

Reviewed: Feb. 7, 2011
I wasn't crazy about this recipe. It was a bit flat tasting and I didn't care for the texture. Probably won't try it again.

Roasted Asparagus With Thyme

Reviewed: Feb. 19, 2011
I've always loved asparagus, but have never been able to get my husband to eat it. He loved this and went back for seconds. Will definitely be using this one again.

Sweet and Spicy Picante Chicken

Reviewed: Jan. 7, 2011
Excellent recipe. Even my dh, who isn't fond of chicken, liked it. I used mild salsa and think next time I'll use at least half medium. The brown sugar off sets the pepper and it could have used a bit more spice.

Chewy Peanut Butter Brownies

Reviewed: Jul. 15, 2010
I had never tried peanut butter brownies but love the taste of peanut butter so gave this recipe a try. What a pleasant surprise. They are excellent and were a big hit at work. After reading some of the other reviews, I made a double recipe and baked in a 9x13 pan with only one alteration. I only used 3 eggs and the result was a chewy moist brownie like bar with a wonderful peanut butter flavor. I will definitely use this one again.

Beef Noodle Soup

Reviewed: Feb. 1, 2011
Just wasn't what I was looking for. Rather bland and unmemorable. Probably won't fix this again.

Dutch Apple Pie

Reviewed: Dec. 6, 2009
I've made a pie like this for years and it always gets rave reviews. I use 1/2 cup brown sugar in the topping instead of white sugar and just bake in the oven without any parchment paper until the topping is brown and slightly crisp.

Marinated Cherry Tomato Salad

Reviewed: Mar. 3, 2009
This is a very easy and tasty salad. Flavor is not too strong or sweet and doesn't detract from the tomatos natural flavor.

Glazed Cinnamon Biscuits

Reviewed: Feb. 7, 2011
A real keeper. I've made this several times and it always gets eaten quickly. Only change I make is to add a little extra butter to the filling.

Spicy Chicken Rice Soup

Reviewed: Feb. 7, 2011
Great recipe! I made it for my son and daughter-in-law using a suggetstion from an earlier review. Substituted 2 jalepeno peppers for the green pepper and the flavor was fantastic. I debated about adding tomatoes, but didn't this time. May try that next time. Think that would make it very similar to tortilla soup.

Chewy Jumbo Chocolate Chip Cookies

Reviewed: Mar. 12, 2009
I followed the recipe exactly as written and these were very good the first day. On the second day they were dry and hard even though I stored in an air tight container. A piece of bread added to the container helped, but was still not satisfied with the way they stored. Probably will not use this recipe again

Soft Oatmeal Cookies

Reviewed: Dec. 20, 2008
This recipe is excellent. I made the cookies on Monday and Friday they were still moist and chewy. With just my husband and I at home now, the amount was just right. I will definitely use this one again.

Cocktail Meatballs

Reviewed: Sep. 25, 2014
Made these by the recipe with one exception, I added a half teaspoon of salt to the meatballs before baking. They were still a bit bland for me. Sauce flavor is interesting but not one that I will repeat at our house. My husband's comment was "I'll bet these meatballs would be great with barbeque sause.

Spicy Salsa

Reviewed: Jan. 7, 2014
In Texas we call this pico de gallo and will eat it on pretty much anything. Never have seen it with celery, but figure a little crunch is always good. You can always adjust the heat by adding/subtracting the amount of peppers and removing the seeds.

Sausage Egg Casserole

Reviewed: Jun. 1, 2013
Wow!! excellent recipe. I took it to a ladies' brunch at church and it was devoured. I used the whole pound of sausage and misread the recipe, so only used one can of chile peppers. Other than those 2 small changes, I followed the recipe as written. Will definitely use it again and have already had some of the ladies ask for the recipe.

Double Tomato Bruschetta

Reviewed: Aug. 10, 2011
This is an excellent recipe. Will definitely used it again. I will probably cut down on the garlic next time as we don't like a strong garlic flavor. I followed another reviewer's suggestion and used it as a dip instead of putting it all together and melting the cheese.

Buttermilk Pie III

Reviewed: Jul. 4, 2009
I had never made a buttermilk pie so was delighted when this one was so easy and tasted great. Reminds me of an egg custard recipe that I've used for years. I will probably add the lemon flavoring that someone suggested when I make this again.
