Never Fail Biscuits

Reviewed: Jul. 9, 2007
UPDATE: I made drop biscuits using this recipe by mixing in 1 cup of a four-cheese blend, a 4.5 ounce can of chopped green chilies (drained) and some minced garlic just before the milk. I dropped them using a tablespoon on to a pan in 9 large mounds and baked them for 12 minutes. They turned out great! ORIGINAL: I can't give this recipe enough stars. I have always made lump/heavy biscuits in the past. I follow the directions to a "T" and they turn out great every time! I use a 1 cup measuring cup to cut them at about 1/2 inch thick and they plump up beautifully (it makes 8 total that way). Thank you!

Vietnamese Fresh Spring Rolls

Reviewed: Jun. 17, 2007
The fish sauce was too overwhelming (both scent and taste). And I'm the type of person who loves pretty much everything and has an iron stomach. The rolls themselves were ok - I think they needed more ingredients on the inside. Carrots definitely, and maybe twice the vermicelli. I mixed 2 T hoisin and 1 T smooth peanut butter and then mixed in enough water to thin it out. This was the BEST part! I will not make this again.

Delicious Rosemary Bread

Reviewed: Jun. 13, 2007
This is an excellent easy bread recipe! I used a fresh herb mixture of rosemary, oregano and thyme and threw it all in to the dough. It was probably about 1/3 cup total. I also included a teaspoon of minced garlic and should have done more since I couldn't taste it (I love it). I also put down wax paper and lightly sprayed it with cooking spray. At first I baked them for only 15 minutes and the first loaf was slightly doughy (I have an unreliable oven unfortunately). So I threw the un-eaten one back in the oven for another 5 minutes and it's perfect. Dipped it in olive oil/balsamic vinegar/fresh black pepper. I couldn't stop eating it!

Best Marinara Sauce Yet

Reviewed: Jun. 13, 2007
I've made this a couple of times now. I use fresh herbs - oregano and thyme. Once I made it with white wine, the other time with red, and they were both good. And like another reviewer said, if it's bitter add a bit of sugar (not much).

Tasty Green Beans

Reviewed: Jun. 12, 2007
Even my boyfriend who HATES green beans loved this dish. I cut the recipe in half (left the garlic the same) and just threw in one beef bouillon cube. The soy sauce added great flavor to the beans. I served this with steak and roasted red potatoes.

Summerly Squash

Reviewed: Jun. 12, 2007
I had three small zucchini and a couple of tomatoes that needed to be used, so this recipe was perfect! It turned out pretty good. I did add some minced garlic but nothing else 'extra'. I've never made squash this way, and it was better than expected.

Vegetarian Refried Beans

Reviewed: Jun. 12, 2007
I like that you don't have to soak the beans overnight for this great tasting recipe. I used a can of Rotel tomatoes and of course, lots of salt. Taste, taste, taste until it is salted correctly. The beans were used to make tostadas.

Rosemary Red Potatoes

Reviewed: Jun. 12, 2007
This is a great way to cook red potatoes. I used about 4 sprigs of fresh rosemary, half of a large red onion and about twice the garlic. The foil made cleanup quick and easy. I also mixed everything in a ziplock bag per a review. Thanks!

Pan Sauce Chicken

Reviewed: Jun. 12, 2007
It's true, this is a great starter recipe which is why it deserves full marks. After I initially cooked the chicken, I pulled them off and then put 3 T flour and 3 T butter in the pan. After that was slightly browned and bubbly I whisked in the wine and water. It wasn't clumpy at all. In went a bunch of fresh rosemary, thyme and oregano, then the chicken. Make sure you check your chicken! That's why the recipe says "or until chicken is cooked through". If it was overcooked, that's not the recipe's fault. :) 15 more minutes is what it took for mine.

Flavorful Beef Stir-Fry

Reviewed: May 8, 2007
I really enjoyed this recipe. I doubled the sauce (did the white wine version) and added 2 tsps minced garlic and 1/2 tsp ground ginger to the veggies (personal preference). The veggies I used: broccoli, carrots, peas, celery, bean sprouts, bamboo shoots and water chestnuts. I always have to cook water chestnuts a little longer than recipes state - I still like them crispy, but they need a little extra time imo. I also let it all simmer together for a few minutes at the end. The sauce was thick and flavorful!

Herbed Mushrooms with White Wine

Reviewed: Apr. 24, 2007
I really love the taste of these simple-to-make mushrooms. I used small cremini mushrooms. Don't forget that the mushrooms will "shrink" when cooked. I also threw together a few herbs from my garden for the italian seasoning portion: oregano, rosemary, sage & thyme. Probably about 2 tablespoons of that mixure. Unfortunately my chives are not ready, but the dried chives didn't make a difference.

Teriyaki Pork Tenderloin

Reviewed: Apr. 19, 2007
This turned out excellent! This is probably the best tasting pork tenderloin I've ever made. I had a total of 2.8 lbs of tenderloin so I did 1.5 times the amount for the marinade. I let it sit over night and then dumped it all in the baking dish tonight for dinner. 35 minutes later it was 160 degrees and scrumptious.

Chicken Broth in a Slow Cooker

Reviewed: Apr. 7, 2007
I am giving this 5 stars because it's a great method! I'm also sure the broth would be good without any changes as well. I made this using a leftover rotisserie chicken carcass I got from a supermarket. There was still a lot of meat on the bones (and seasoning from the rotisserie). I did 8 cups of water, only 1 tsp of basil (due to other seasoning), and added garlic, some peppercorns and fresh parsley. I also included some of the celery leaves. I strained it by using a strainer lined with white paper towels. It ended up giving me a little over 4 cups of broth (I probably should have pressed the veggies to get more broth.)

Chicken Stew with Dumplings

Reviewed: Apr. 7, 2007
I had made my own chicken broth with lots of spices the night before, so I left out the extra spices in this recipe. (Well 4 cups broth, one more cup of water.) The dumplings were the best part! I love the parsley in them. I also used 4 boneless chicken breasts and only cooked them for about 20 minutes before I cut them apart and then continued on with the recipe. The dumplings were also cooked covered for 16 minutes and were perfect.

Easy Pie Crust

Reviewed: Apr. 7, 2007
I used this with the Grandma's Lemon Meringue Pie recipe on this site. It was pretty good. It was so easy!!! It did fall apart a little bit, but the ease made up for it. I used 1 Tablespoon sugar and 1/2 tsp salt. I think this would be perfect for quiche. But for anything dessert related, it would definitely need more sugar/less salt. I have never made a pie crust before from scratch, so I was disappointed the directions didn't explain what it meant by "holes". I had to look it up (just use a fork to poke a bunch of holes about 1/4 inch apart so that the pre-baking crust can let steam out.)

Grandma's Lemon Meringue Pie

Reviewed: Apr. 7, 2007
I'm giving this a 5 even though the custard filling was too ... thick I guess. But I think that's my fault. It was thick almost immediately after I added the egg yolks (in fact, it was stiff before that) so I figured I needed to cook it longer to get thicker. 10 minutes later it was thicker....but I think that's what made the custard like a lump. The meringue was perfect as is - I whipped it for a very long time. The taste was excellent! I made the easy pie crust recipe from this site, but I might try a "real" pie crust next time. I suggest if you've never made LM that you watch this tutorial video first on How to Make Lemon Meringue Pie on Allrecipes.

BBQ Pork for Sandwiches

Reviewed: Apr. 3, 2007
Very simple. I made bourbon whiskey bbq sauce (from this site) two days before just for this recipe. I ended up buying a boneless pork shoulder and cooked that in the beef broth and a tablespoon of liquid smoke. It was a little tough to tear apart at first, but then I threw it all back into the crockpot with two cups of my pre-made bbq sauce for about an hour until it was heated through. It was very tender and delicious.

Chicken Kiev

Reviewed: Mar. 31, 2007
This turned out pretty good. I followed the suggestions of others and fried them for about 6 minutes until they were browned and then baked them in the oven at 350 for about 20 minutes. I used 1/2 cup butter and 1.5 tsps garlic powder for the garlic butter. I also used fresh dill (about 1 Tablespoon but think I should have used more). One thing I didn't like is that the flour seemed to all come off in the egg mixture. Next time I think I might just mix the dill (etc) with the bread crumbs so I don't lose it all. It was also a whole lot of effort for dinner, but the taste was definitely worth it.

Corned Beef Hash

Reviewed: Mar. 18, 2007
I made this with some leftover corned beef. I probably had about a pound of corned beef but only used 2 large (they were big) potatoes and the entire 14 oz can of beef broth. Chopped up a medium sized yellow onion. I let it cook for 15 minutes covered, then took the cover off for about another 15 so it could get a little crispy and cook out the liquid. Served with over easy eggs on top. Delicious! This fed 4 adults with good sized portions. Thanks!

Homesteader Cornbread

Reviewed: Mar. 18, 2007
Great cornbread recipe. I added a chopped jalapeno (should have done two!). I also let the cornmeal sit in the milk for around 15 minutes. The flavor was perfect. Not too sweet. I made this to go with chili.
