Liverwurst

Reviewed: Jan. 27, 2012
Sorry I could not give this recipe more stars but, I had a really hard time with this one. I made according to the recipe but all of my sausages burst during cooking and all the flavor was gone into the water. I did make 2 larger versions using the method discussed by another reviewer and wrapping the larger sausage in cling film. I left tons of room for the sausage to expand after the earlier disaster. I also thought that this really didn't taste like liverwurst. There was very little liver taste and the texture was more like a meatloaf and very crumbly. If you make this recipe please leave a lot of room in your casings for this to expand. Also maybe make tiny holes with a needle to let some air escape. (I did this with the larger sausage and it seemed to help. Thanks for posting the recipe though.

Mom's Stuffing Pork Chops

Reviewed: Jan. 20, 2012
Like other reviewers I used chicken broth instead of water and I added some fresh sage to the stuffing. I also thought that the cooking time seemed to be overly long and I hate dry pork so, I browned the pork chops which brought them up to the required temp. (140 on my thermapen ) and just baked them for 30 minutes with the stuffing on top and the chicken stock included at that step. This was a nice dish that I will make again. I just didn't think that it was good enough for a 5 star recipe

Cherry Tomatoes and Olives

Reviewed: Jan. 19, 2012
We really enjoyed this dish but hubby thought that it would have been so much better with sauteed onions added. I loved it as a different kind of side. Thank you so much for posting your recipe.

Brandied Pepper Steak

Reviewed: Jan. 19, 2012
At first I didn't understand what all the hype was about. The sauce tasted so so. Something happened though, as I kept eating it, and my husband agrees with this, the flavor got better. At the end of our meal we found that we really enjoyed it. Thank you so much for posting the recipe.

Dry Rub Ribs

Reviewed: Jan. 17, 2012
I just loved this rub. I have to say that I did add salt. I think that it enhances the flavor of the other ingredients. My hubby loves sauce so I put BBQ sauce on his. I ate mine with just the rub. I gave mine a 5 star rating. He gave his a 4 said that the herbs interfered with the BBQ sauce. That bein said I think that this recipe is Da Bomb. Love it and will continue to use it. Thank you so much for posting.

Grapefruit Bars

Reviewed: Jan. 17, 2012
My hubby loved these. I think though that the cooking time was a little off. At 30 minutes I checked and the middle was still very jiggly. I had to give them an additional 10 minutes. I decorated them with the "Really Good Frosting" recipe from this site. Thanks for posting the recipe.

Roasted Turkey, Navy Style

Reviewed: Jan. 15, 2012
I just loved this. I did not use a whole turkey however, but as it is the New Year, I am trying to make healthier food. This fit the bill for a turkey breast. I followed the recipe exactly except for putting the salt and pepper directly on the turkey breast. Turned out very moist and flavorful. I will save the veggies and juice for a soup. Thank you so much for posting.

Swiss Steak Stew

Reviewed: Jan. 14, 2012
We thought this was really tasty. I did add carrots for flavor and I did leave out the corn as I am not a fan in soups/stews, but it was really nice. I will make this again

Fabulous French Loaves

Reviewed: Jan. 13, 2012
This is the 2nd time that I have made this bread. I could not ask for anything better. I love this bread. It is easy to make. It rises beautifully, and I have added several flavors to the bread. The first time I made it I did the first loaf just as french bread. I did the second loaf as cheddar cheese and jalapeno. The second time, (see photo). I did the first loaf as rolls. I made six rolls. The second loaf I did mixing in chopped sun dried tomatoes and chunks of mozzarella cheese. Yum

Hearty Italian Sandwiches

Reviewed: Jan. 13, 2012
This was actually pretty good. Very easy to make. Both hubby and I gave it a 4 star review. Knowing my hubby I thought that he would probably want some kind of sauce with it so I made a Marinara Sauce to go with it. Put it over the top. Without the marinara I made the recipe exactly as posted. Thanks for the recipe. Oh BTW I used the Fabulous French Loaves recipe and made it into rolls. Very good

Beer Batter Deep Fried Dill Pickles

Reviewed: Jan. 1, 2012
These are unbelievably good. I fell in love with fried pickles at the AllRecipes Southern Round up in Florida. I never thought that I would be able to make these better than the ones that I had there but this recipe does it. I was a little worried when reading the recipe beccause I always dredged my food in the flour first, then in the beer batter. This recipe calls for just the opposite. So, I compromised, I dredged in the flour then in the batter and then again in the flour. I cannot believe how crispy this batter was. Even after sitting on the table for 30 minutes or so the breading was incredibly crisp. I am going to try using this recipe on fish and shrimp to see if it will remain crisp. This is definitely my go to fried pickle recip from now on. Thank you so much for posting.

Michael's Foccacia Bread

Reviewed: Jan. 1, 2012
This was wonderful. Very easy to make and turned out perfectly. I topped mine with Olive oil, kosher salt, sliced green stuffed olives, tomatoes from the farmer's maarket (sliced thinly) and freshly grated parmesan cheese. My neighbor came over as it was baking and loved it so much that I finished up giving her half of it. She was in heaven. Thanks for posting.

Tracey's Culinary Adventures: Cauliflower Mashed Potatoes

Reviewed: Mar. 1, 2011
This was really good. I added some cayenne for a little heat. Put the recipe in Spark Recipes and for 4 servings it is 154 calories. For 6 servings it is 104 calories. I used a medium sized head of cauliflower, and fat free cream cheese.

Soft-N-Fluffy Hamburger Buns

Reviewed: Nov. 8, 2010
I have now made these buns 3 or 4 times and have to say that they are the best buns ever. I don't understand the comments that these will not stand up to a hamburger. Every time that I have made them I used them for hamburgers and they were perfectly fine. They did not fall/break apart and held up until the last bite. I should say though that when I make them I do not use the Vital Wheat Gluten. I have always made them using white AP or Bread flour so do not find the VWG necessary. Would certainly use it if replacing part of the white flour with whole wheat. Thanks WFDM for posting this recipe, it will remain my go to recipe for burger buns.

Plum Buckle

Reviewed: Oct. 19, 2010
Made this tonight for my DH and SIL, (sorry I don't care for desserts). They both gave this a solid 5 stars and said that it was really delicious. DH really wanted a second piece but he was already too full. I made this recipe exactly as posted. Thanks so much for posting this recipe. I will keep it in regular rotation, as it was fairly easy to make.

Diana's Swiss Roesti Potatoes

Reviewed: May 27, 2010
These were absolutely delicious. The inside of the potato cake is so fluffy and light. The onions give a wonderful sweetness to the potatoes. I will certainly make this again. Thank you for posting.

Olive and Blue Cheese Ball

Reviewed: May 20, 2010
This was unbelievably good. I love to take pictures of the food I make from AR, but, we had already eaten half of it before I could get my camera out. I will try next time to be faster. Believe me something has to be really good for me to give a 5 star rating. I used a combination of Roquefort and an English cheese called Shropshire Blue. Wow. Otherwise I didn't change a thing. Thanks so much for posting this recipe.
