Lemon Mustard Chicken

Reviewed: Sep. 7, 2009
Used two lemons and 6 limes to = 3/4 c. Doubled all spices except salt. Marinated in bag 3-4 hrs. Used no butter but instead sprayed baking dish. Was not soggy. Like someone else, boiled the rest of the marinated then I thickened it with remaining breadcrumbs then added apple cider to create the right consistency. The next time I made it, just boiled the marinade only and poured it over the chicken. It was equally as good. I did have to bake it an additional 15 minutes after turning, for a total of 45 minutes after turned.

Lasagna Alfredo Roll Ups

Reviewed: Sep. 7, 2009
When I made Lasagne last time, I knew I wanted to try this recipe, so I cooked the extra lasagne noodles and froze them to see if this part could be done ahead. They froze/defrosted perfectly. I made the recipe exactly as written. I, too, would like to use my own sauce next time "just because". However, this was just wonderful, super simple but looks very elegant and like you slaved over making them. I'll add a little parsley in the top sauce for color next time. Great keeper! Thank you.

Cowboy Caviar

Reviewed: Aug. 21, 2009
Very, very tasty! Omitted the cilantro (personal taste). Easy recipe that gets better as it sits. We had some leftover spaghetti noodles that we sliced up a bit and threw in the following day. It was fantastic! I thought I had Zesty or Robusto Italian dressing but didn't. I would've used that instead of straight Italian but it wasn't even missed. It was quite "robusto" enough on its own. Thank you!

Easy Batter Fruit Cobbler

Reviewed: Jul. 27, 2009
I don't know why I had it in mind that this would turn out crunchy but it doesn't. It was very moist and cake-like. Baked it for 50 minutes and it turned out beautifully. VERY easy.

Easy Pickled Beets

Reviewed: Jul. 20, 2009
We used fresh beets and green onions from the garden, cooking the beets for a few minutes until sharp knife-tip tender. We doubled the recipe for the amount of beets we had but only used 2 c. sugar still and 1 1/2 t. salt. The cinnamon was the perfect touch! These would go nicely as a side with pork. Thank you!

Green Chili Stew

Reviewed: Apr. 5, 2009
This had just the BEST flavor. Had to change the recipe a bit for what we had on hand. We had whole pig on the spit to use up. We are true pork lovers so I think I'll always make it with pork but when the "real pig" runs out, maybe I'll add some liquid smoke to store-bought. I live where there is lots of Green Chili Stew around and definitely eaten my share. This is absolutely the best. The flavor just rules! Thank you!

Irish Cream Bundt Cake

Reviewed: Mar. 15, 2009
I read quite a few reviews and went with the chocolate cake mix and vanilla pudding. Used an infuser to get right into the cake with the glaze. There were only 3 people eating it and it was half gone in a day. Great recipe! Thanks!

Seasoned Fan Potatoes

Reviewed: Mar. 13, 2009
These would make wonderful company potatoes because of the nice presentation. We ran to the hardware store and got 2 small wooden dowel rods and cut the potatoes between them. I loved another reviewer's thoughts on adding rosemary. I think I'll rub them with oil and rosemary next time and fresh ground pepper. Great recipe! Thanks!

Rib Eye Steaks with a Soy and Ginger Marinade

Reviewed: Mar. 13, 2009
We used honey and dry ginger. Very good but next time I'll use fresh ginger for an even stronger, fresher flavor and try the maple syrup (didn't have any).

Pineapple Cheese Casserole

Reviewed: Feb. 25, 2009
We had this at a potluck and just LOVED it! I sought out the person who brought it and she gave me the recipe. She lowered the sugar to 3/4 c. It was perfect. I can't rave enough about it. I never would've paired cheddar cheese with pineapple but it is out of this world and so easy!

Kashmiri-Style Kidney Beans with Turnips

Reviewed: Jan. 24, 2009
This was SO tasty. It is a perfect blend of flavors like none other! Reading other reviews, I let the steam evaporate almost all of the liquid but hub (not knowing that I did that on purpose) said it would be better if it had more liquid to go over the rice. I used 1 c. stewed tomatoes as I didn't have fresh. Next time, I'll try using the whole can. This was just wonderful. It was a blend of spices that we don't use often enough so it had a very unique, fantastic flavor to us. A true keeper. Thanks!

Italian Dressing Mix

Reviewed: Nov. 15, 2008
Like others, I used garlic powder and celery seed instead of salt. I still thought it was a little bit too salty. I didn't see anyone else say that, so it just must be our taste. Nice mixture to have on hand. I used it over Napa cabbage, slivered, sliced red onions and pickled eggs. Thanks!

Diane's Colcannon

Reviewed: Nov. 6, 2008
Used leftover mashed potatoes brought to room temp. and heated through with additional milk. This was really good but for our tastes, next time I'll use the whole cabbage and 12-16 oz. bacon. Thanks for the great comfort food!

Spicy Rapid Roast Chicken

Reviewed: Nov. 6, 2008
I mixed the spices into the olive oil and rubbed it all over the chicken. Just easier/faster that way I thought. Great flavor and super easy! If I ever read the manual on the oven, there's probably a way to time it to turn the heat down to make it even easier but that'll never happen :)

Spicy Refrigerator Dill Pickles

Reviewed: Oct. 20, 2008
I never tried making pickles. I will never BUY them again! We always bought the Zesty Dills and loved them. Now I'd say that they'd "do" in a pinch. FYI, the 2/3 oz. package of fresh dillweed only makes 1 c. so that is what I used. It was plenty. I cut the sugar to 1 T. because I wanted them to be ZESTY, ZESTY, ZESTY and boy did they deliver. Nice and garlicky, too. So easy and so tasty. Thank you for this fantastic recipe!

Buttermilk Pancakes II

Reviewed: Oct. 19, 2008
This is the absolute best recipe that I've ever made and I have made LOTS of pancakes. Some people remember living off hamburger when they were young and broke. I didn't even have that much money, so I did pancakes and only pancakes. 35 years later, I'm happy to say I can afford the buttermilk for these. I don't know if that was the key (not cheating and making my own with vinegar in milk) but nothing can ever top these. Fluffy and tender. Just perfect! I cut the recipe for 4 servings following it to the letter and it made 5 nice sized pancakes for the two of us (using a "heaping" 1/2 c. batter each). Thank you SO much for this recipe! It was a long time coming ;) !!!

Grandmother's Buttermilk Cornbread

Reviewed: Oct. 15, 2008
There were only 4 of us eating and only one small square left. That says it all! This was absolutely perfect. Listening to another review I (for once) didn't cheat and got the buttermilk. Just "because" I'd like to try adding whole corn and green chilis. I will report back on that if I do. It truly is wonderful the way it is, we just like the texture of the additions. Thanks so much for a true winner! 10/31/11 Well, it took me a year, but I did double the recipe, added 2 c. frozen corn, thawed and 2-4 oz. cans diced chilis. I melted the butter in a huge (15") cast iron skillet (I sprayed up the sides with Pam) and just mixed it all up in their, too. 40 minutes later, it was perfectly nice and moist. I'm almost afraid to push the envelope, but I'm tempted to add shredded cheddar to it. Straight or with the additions, this is one keeper recipe! Thank you so much for sharing. It's the only one I'll ever use now. Folks are always asking me to make this.

Jalapeno Popper Spread

Reviewed: Oct. 7, 2008
I have never had something go over as big as this did last night. I took this to a camping potluck and it was all everyone was asking; who brought it and what's in it? SO simple. I did dump in all of both cans including the liquid and it was gone before I worked my way back up to get some of it. Being in a trailer, I didn't have a nuker, so I baked it in the oven at 350 for 30 minutes. I'm sure it didn't need to be that long but it did give a nice crust to the top. Served it with Wheat Thins but will try it with the sourdough when we are at home. Thank you, thank you, thank you for sharing this! An absolute winner!!!

Key Lime Pie VII

Reviewed: Oct. 6, 2008
Can't say that I've ever had Key Lime Pie but hub was rattling on about how good it was for years. Told him to look out for the limes and bring them home. Well, I am SO glad that he finally found some where we live. The only thing keeping me from making it over and over would be finding them again (although I read the reviews about using the concentrate and will try). I needed something to bring to a potluck and pie isn't easily cut up for a crowd. I used an 8x11 glass dish and baked it for the full time. It came out perfect. Just the right sweetness to tartness. There was just enough left for us to have a taste of such perfection. Thanks for a classic keeper!

Balsamic Pea Salad

Reviewed: Jun. 20, 2008
I didn't bother to chop the almond slices --for looks. Used Miracle Whip since it was Father's Day (next time, Best mayo) and hub prefers that to mayo. Only had some good shredded Parmesan. In spite of the changes, this is an EXCELLENT pea salad, better than the other ones I have used. I'll be sure to use feta next time as we both love it. Thanks for such an easy keeper!
