Rum Raisin Bread Pudding with Warm Vanilla Sauce

Reviewed: Jan. 1, 2013
This was a great recipe. Every Christmas we make a Swedish traditional hot drink called Glogg that is made with rum and port wine and spices. It also has raisins and prunes in it, but there is always leftover prunes and raisins. I didn't want to waste them so I started searching for a recipe I could incorporate them into and came across this one. It was delicious. When it came time to sauteing the apples, I tossed the prunes and raisins in and cooked slightly. The final touch was that wonderful rum sauce. OH MY GOODNESS is that ever good. -though my husband happened to be walking by when I was finishing it up and he tasted it and said "It needs more Rum!" as he tipped the bottle and poured about a 1/4 cup in. It was very rummy and very delicious. Such a great recipe. I will definitely make this one again.

Sauce Rosee

Reviewed: May 11, 2012
This recipe has wonderful flavors, however I thought the amount of oil and the amount of sugar was a bit much. I did not use the amount of oil called for, but I did use the two tbsp of sugar and although we all liked the sauce, we felt it was a bit too sweet. I will cut the sugar back a tbsp next time and add more red pepper flakes for a bit more spice. All in all this is a very nice recipe that I will definitely use again with a few minor modifications. My husband thought this sauce would be good with Shrimp added. May try that next time.

Daddy Charles's Spooley

Reviewed: Apr. 7, 2011
These were good. We didn't make a huge amount of these instead we made them by the glass, as reviewer Lillian suggested. After two of these, we couldn't remember the name of them and we were calling them "Uncle Charlies Sloopy". FAIL! -HA, but that is its new name in my house. We made them again the next night and added a splash of pineapple juice on the top which I liked even better. This will make a great summer drink.

Indian Style Sheekh Kabab

Reviewed: Mar. 8, 2011
Hi. I couldn't find the Green Chile Paste either, but I did find Green Curry Paste which I have used each time I have made this recipe and it is fantastic. You can find it in the Asian Food Isle at most supermarkets (I think I bought mine at Fred Meyer).

Kitchen Sink Cookies

Reviewed: Feb. 28, 2011
These are SOOOO GOOD! I only changed one thing in this recipe and that was to add a full cup of butterscotch chips instead of the 1/2 cup, because they are my favorite. Everybody that tried these loved them. I hope I have enough left to send to my daughter in college. After all... that is what I made them for.

Fried Chicken with Creamy Gravy

Reviewed: Oct. 8, 2010
Look out Paula Deen, here I come!! I have never, in my cooking life, been able to master fried chicken until this recipe. My husband thought he had died and gone to heaven last night when I served him crispy fried chicken, with mashed potatoes smothered with fantastic cream gravy! I used a Hungarian Hot Paprika instead of regular for the breading and it gave the recipe and extra kick, but that was the only change I made. The chicken was so juicy and tender. I doubled the breading because I had a zucchini that I needed to use. Before adding the chicken to the oil, I battered the zucchini spears with the breading and put them in the hot oil for a couple of minutes and drained them on paper towels. WOW! The flavor was excellent. You will feel like a true southern cook when you serve this recipe. Try the Hungarian Hot Paprika in your breading, if you like a little spice in your life.

Rosemary Ranch Chicken Kabobs

Reviewed: Aug. 4, 2010
I am finally getting around to reviewing this recipe. I have made this at least 5 times within the past year and my family absolutely loves it. There is no need to modify it. It is fantastic as written. We like to serve it with Trader Joes Flatbread and Trader Joes Tzatziki Sauce. YUM! I wanted to thank Theresa Spencer for sharing this wonderful healthy recipe.

World's Best Lasagna

Reviewed: Sep. 10, 2009
Yes, this IS the world's BEST lasagna! We made the tomato sauce from our own garden tomatoes (18 tomatos blanched, peeled and seeded) and fresh herbs (basil, oregano, sage and parsley approximately 5 TBSP) and added all other ingredients, minus the crushed tomatoes and the tomato sauce. The ending result was fabulous. The taste was so fresh. I want to make this again before the tomato plants have withered away, but next time I will make an extra one for the freezer. Such a wonderful recipe. -Oh and a tip for speeding up the process, use the NO BOIL lasagna noodles. They worked great! Thank you for a truly amazing recipe!

Baked French Fries II

Reviewed: Jul. 15, 2009
These turned out pretty good, but the cooking time was a little longer then called for and we had to flip them in order to get them crisp on each side, but the flavor was good. My husband thought they could use some garlic, so I may try that next time. I definitely will make again, but will add the garlic.

Baked Pork Chops I

Reviewed: Jul. 14, 2009
This recipe makes fork-tender pork chops that are out of this world, however the gravy is lacking a bit. I will make this again, but I will try a different gravy next time. Maybe take the advice of some of the reviews and add garlic and fresh mushrooms to the gravy.

Salisbury Steak Deluxe

Reviewed: Jul. 1, 2009
I followed the directions for the most part, however we had some fresh mushrooms that we needed to use up so my husband sliced them with some onion and garlic and sautéed them in a bit of butter. When they were almost done he added about 2 TBL of white wine and deglazed the pan and let it cook until it evaporated and then we added them to the gravy. I doubled the gravy recipe, but not the meat. I used 2 lbs of ground beef. These patties were absolutely the tenderest patties I have ever tasted. They held shape in the pan pretty well, but they fell apart on the plate and I was totally okay with that because they tasted amazing. I served them over a bed of egg noodles and the gravy with the falling apart patties was out of this world good. This will definitely be in my monthly recipe rotation. Thanks Denise!

Corn Dog Muffins

Reviewed: Jun. 9, 2009
I love the concept of this recipe. We had a barbecue and made WAY too many hot dogs and had a ton leftover. By day three we were getting pretty hot dogged out so I needed to do something different with the leftovers and came across this recipe. I didn't have any corn bread mix on hand so I made the Sweet Corn Bread recipe by Virginia Hanker from this site. It was easy and turned out delicious! Thanks for the great idea. I wonder why I never thought of it?

Vodka Rigatoni

Reviewed: May 18, 2009
I was so impressed with this recipe. It was a breeze to put together and the outcome was so good. My husband and I thought this was one of the better pasta dishes we have had in a long time. The only thing I did differently was I added more peas than the recipe called for and extra crushed red pepper because we like more heat, but other than that, we followed the recipe. We will make this a staple in our house. Thank you for the great recipe, Angchick!

Mexican Rice III

Reviewed: May 14, 2009
HOLY WOW this is good rice! I wish that I could give more stars. I have found a recipe so good I will never look elsewhere for a Mexican/Spanish rice dish. The fresh ingredients are so tasty in this. My only suggestion to anyone who would like to make this is to do all your chopping/slicing/dicing before you actually start the sautéing of the rice; otherwise you may burn your rice. We have made this twice in the past week because it is just that good! Thank you for sharing this wonderful recipe.

German Spaetzle Dumplings

Reviewed: Feb. 25, 2009
We love this recipe! I wouldn't change a thing. It can be hard to make if you do not have a spaetzle maker, but I am ordering one so the job is easier next time! You need something with really large holes. Typical colander and cheese graters do not work well. -this recipe goes great with the jagerschnitzel recipe from this site published by DSPIRAL73.
