Fresh Sweet Corn Fritters

Reviewed: Aug. 27, 2012
I hadn't had corn fritters since I was a kid so when I had a few extra ears of corn from the garden I found this recipe and couldn't wait to fry them up. I cut the recipe in 1/2 for just my husband and I and it was plenty. I didn't have heavy whipping cream but I didn't let that stop me - I used 1/2% milk, which I had on hand. I am more of a savory type of gal and didn't use the cane syrup but instead sprinkled the fritters with salt. These turned out nice and fluffy on the inside and crispy on the outside. The corn lent the perfect amount of sweetness for us to this recipe. They are best right out of the pan - if they sit they will soften fairly quickly but will still be tasty. Three ears of corn measures 1-1/2 cups of kernels.

Summer Fresh Pasta with Tomatoes and Prosciutto

Reviewed: Aug. 21, 2012
I followed the submitters advice and started with the tomato mixture and made the pasta last. To avoid the possibility of tough skins, I peeled my garden tomatoes by scalding for 30 seconds and then placing in cold water - the skins slipped right off. I was a little leary of adding the full amount of oil called for even though olive oil is the healthy oil but I did as the directions stated and didn't regret it. The tomato mixture made enough of its own juice that the addition of the pasta water was not necessary for me. I didn't have shallots so I diced up some onion instead. Followed the rest of the instructions as indicated and topped with Parmesan cheese. I had never had prosciutto before and although I didn't care for the proscuitto on its own, it was a good addition to this recipe. I loved the simplicity of this recipe and the light fresh flavor. What could be better than fresh tomatoes and basil in the summertime? Thanks for the tasty recipe Laurie!

Corn On The Cob (Easy Cleaning and Shucking)

Reviewed: Aug. 10, 2012
This will be my new go-to way to cook corn on the cob. Perfection. I love that there is no mess from the husks. I cooked 2 ears at once and cooked for 5 minutes. I opened one ear and thought that it needed another minute so I popped the other one back in and it was perfect. I think the length of time will depend on the number of ears you microwave at one time and the wattage of your microwave. Mine is a 950 watter.

Home-Fried Cheese Sticks

Reviewed: Jul. 8, 2012
I originally tried and reviewed this recipe before it was published. I will share my review from then. March 5, 2012 - Awesome! I made these for Super Bowl Sunday this year and they turned out great! I coated twice per the instructions but I still had a slight problem with the cheese oozing out. Make sure you coat the cheese well with the breadcrumbs. Just as good as store bought but I had the satisfaction of making them myself! Thanks Melissa for the inspiration!

Jim Goode's BBQ Beef Rub

Reviewed: Jun. 28, 2012
Looking for a rub recipe to compliment our ribeyes I turned to this. I followed all the ingredients with the exception of the white pepper, which I didn't have. We're not heavy pepper fans so it worked for us. I mixed the rub ingredients and put them on our ribeyes and let them set while the charcoal grill was heating up. I really wish I had made this earlier and let them sit for a bit. The rub was good and not overpowering and complimented the meat well. Next time I will prepare ahead and let them hang out for awhile before tossing on the grill to get the extra flavor boost.

Homemade Ice Pops

Reviewed: Jun. 25, 2012
I hadn't made homemade popsicles in years and needed something refreshing and simple to beat the 90 degree heat. I thought 2 quarts of water would made the flavor a little weak so I cut the water to a total of 4 cups. Perfect. I had a hard time getting these out of my molds but I am sure it was the fault of the mold and not the recipe. I did have to dip the molds in warm water to release the popsicles. Very simple treat!

Garlic Parmesan Orzo

Reviewed: Jun. 7, 2012
I melted 1/2 tablespoon of butter in a sauce pan and added the dry orzo and sauteed until lightly browned. I then added 1-3/4 cup chicken broth and simmered until tender, about 15 minutes. I then finished the recipe as directed, omitting the salt and using one clove of garlic for 1/2 recipe. I really thought the garlic was going to be overpowering but once mixed together this recipe was perfect! A definite keeper in our house. A quick, easy and tasty side dish. Doesn't get much better than that for me.

Herbed Citrus Chicken

Reviewed: Jun. 7, 2012
Since I have a garden full of fresh herbs I used this recipe as a starting point. I went a little crazy picking a few too many herbs but just had to use them all. In a bowl I combined the zest and juice of one lemon, the olive oil and I used approximately one tablespoon each of the following fresh herbs: rosemary, thyme, sage, chives, parsley, and lemon balm. Instead of garlic powder I minced one garlic clove and added 2 tablespoons of worcestershire in place of the salt. I let the chicken hang out in the marinade for almost 24 hours. I had frozen extra chicken breasts from two different packages of chicken and used a total of 4 breast halves. Two pieces of the chicken turned out real juicy and tender and the other two were more firm and dry. The final result will depend on your chicken. I've tried similar recipes using dried herbs and they turned out fantastic - I just happened to have fresh on hand and love it even more that way. Thanks for the great recipe Victoria!

Green Slime Smoothie

Reviewed: Jun. 7, 2012
Knowing that this was going to be rather thick I ditched the ice since the strawberries were frozen and added 6 oz. pineapple juice and about 1/2 cup orange juice (didn't measure) I used my vitamix and this was blended to a smooth consistency within a minute. I will make this again. A cool refreshing treat that helped satisfy my sweet tooth tonight. Thank you janetk.

Supreme Strawberry Topping

Reviewed: May 29, 2012
Simple and delicious! I took fixins' for banana splits to my son's for his girlfriend's birthday and wanted homemade strawberry topping since the jarred stuff never tastes good to me. This was perfect over the vanilla ice cream! Yum!

Cheddar Bacon Hamburgers

Reviewed: May 28, 2012
Who doesn't love bacon and cheese? Especially on a hamburger. I thought this would be great cooked over an open fire on our Memorial Day weekend campout. I used lefover bacon from breakfast that I cut into small pieces with scissors and I inceased the garlic powder to 1 teaspoon, added 1 teaspoon onion powder and used seasoning salt. I also used medium cheddar cheese. Unfortunately I didn't have any horseradish sauce (not a huge fan but I can eat it) and that is probably what would have made this recipe great. I was disappointed that the bacon and cheese flavors didn't shine as much as I thought they were going to. If I make again I will either add the horseradish sauce or maybe a splash or two of Worcestershire sauce and I think I would increase the bacon and top the burger with the cheese instead.

Healthier Old Fashioned Potato Salad

Reviewed: May 28, 2012
A great alternative to a heavy mayonnaise based potato salad. This was loaded with flavor and we enjoyed it. I did cut back on the celery to around 3/4 cup and it was perfect for us. Other than that I followed the recipe as is.

Perfect Chicken

Reviewed: May 7, 2012
First off I have to say that the prep and cooking time are right on with this one. Don't pick this recipe if you are in a hurry for dinner. That being said it was worth the wait. I used 1 tablespoon each of fresh herbs as opposed to the dried and think this was a wise choice. I used onion powder in place of onions because my husband won't eat onions and left out the capers because I didn't have any. After reducing the broth it concentrated the sodium so next time I think I would choose a low sodium broth/stock. A few other reviewers mentioned the sauce not thickening up after simmering. Since the chicken is coated and browned in corn starch, which is a thickener, I thought that may help thicken the sauce in the oven. But I went ahead and took a little extra chicken broth and corn starch and thickened the sauce just a tad before covering the chicken. I'm glad I did. It was the perfect consistency when removing from the oven. The sauce is so yummy I kept taste testing while it was simmering :) The thighs were nice and tender but I may consider using BLSL breasts next time. We think this recipe is restaurant quality and definitely a keeper!

Italian Chicken Sausage Risotto

Reviewed: Apr. 22, 2012
Due to the availability of the fresh sausage in my area I substituted fully cooked Sweet Italian Chicken Sausage. I browned them in the pan before thinly slicing and quartering the sausage. I continued on with the rest of the recipe as is using orzo in place of Aborio rice and adding the sausage back in when the orzo was done. I do have to say, though, that 15 minutes cooking time is a tad too long for orzo. I am glad I read the directions before starting or I may have missed the parmesan and parsley. I used freshly grated parmesan cheese as well as fresh parsley. This was good but not sure if I would make it again using the saugage - maybe without. Love the ease of the recipe.

Shrimp and Sweet Corn Maque Choux

Reviewed: Apr. 22, 2012
This was delicious. I did make a couple small changes. I mix my own Creole seasoning so I can adjust the heat to our taste and I didn't have zucchini on hand like I thought I did so I just chopped some fresh pea pods and added them for color. Loved the simplicity and it was bursting with flavor!

Sweet Italian Chicken Sausage and Tortellini Soup

Reviewed: Apr. 21, 2012
The fresh Chicken Sweet Italian Sausage was not available in my area so I used the precooked sausage and browned them in a little oil until heated through. I used whole wheat fresh tortellini and vegetable broth since I had some to use up. I love the simplicity of this recipe. So quick and easy and pretty tasty.

Roasted Garlic Chicken Sausage Caesar Salad

Reviewed: Apr. 21, 2012
I loved the simplicity of this recipe. I wasn't able to find the Roasted Garlic Chicken Sausage due to availibility in my area I used Sundried Tomato Chicken Sausage w/ Basil. I didn't have the Caesar dressing so I just mixed together a vinegar and oil dressing with a few herbs. Quick, easy and tasty.
