Who Hash

Reviewed: Apr. 7, 2014
This was the Johnsonville Sausage remake recipe I chose. I used ground sausage in place of the canned ham and I diced red skinned potatoes in place of the canned. It was wonderful! So good! Served with an over easy egg to break open over top. Really, really good. So good, in fact, I even got another marriage proposal from the Hubs! Mmmhmm - score!

Amazing Muffin Cups

Reviewed: Apr. 7, 2014
Lets just say we have a new favorite for breakfast. These are wonderful fresh out of the oven or reheated the next day. The Hubs put one on an English muffin for a breakfast sandwich the next day and one of my kids put two in a tortilla, wrapped it up and ate it on the way out the door to school. I made two versions - one with the shredded potatoes and I found they they stuck in the pan a bit. Second version I use some potato rounds that just fit in the bottom of the pan. The verdict was that everyone preferred the potato round better. More potato flavor and more substantial to bite into. Next time I make these I will add some fresh parsley and perhaps some other veggies like shredded zucchini, mushrooms and onion. Lots of possibilities with this recipe. I did freeze two just to see what it would be like. Well, they freeze best when completely cooled. First batch they were still too warm and they defrosted "sponge like". The second time I refrigerated the muffins first then froze. We reheated for 40 seconds and they were perfect! I plan on making a large batch to take on vacation and for on-the-go days when you need something quick. What could be better -These are easy enough to whip up and will last (if your lucky!) a few days in the fridge AND they freeze well!. Great recipe we will be making again! **My daughter came up with the idea to maybe try using silver dollar pancake on the bottom of the cupcake - will be giving that a try too! :)

Grandma Rita's Soft Butter Rolls

Reviewed: Mar. 24, 2014
I made these hen it was a personal recipe. I have made them several times since that first review. They are wonderful rolls! So glad it was published. My Review: These were wonderful, Lela! I made everything in my KA mixer. I only needed about 3 cups of flour - perhaps a little less than that. The rolls were flaky, rose well and browned nicely. Thanks for sharing your recipe! The rolls were a treat slathered in homemade butter and dipped in gravy.

Sweet Sriracha Chicken

Reviewed: Mar. 18, 2014
My family really loved this recipe! I did stray a bit from the method but the result was outstanding. I roasted some drumsticks until crispy and drained away any fat that accumulated in the pan. While the chicken roasted I simmered the sauce ingredients in a sauce pan. I let it cook for about 30 minutes to thicken up a bit and added a cornstarch slurry to make it the thickness of a heavy BBQ sauce. I had my kids taste it and they all agreed that they couldn't taste much of the Siracha and the heat factor just wasn't there for them. By the time we added/tasted and added some more we probably added 1/3 cup of Siracha to the sauce. We do like hot-n-spicy :) I dipped the drumsticks in the sauce and then returned to the oven for about 10 minutes to stay warm. I thinned the remaining sauce with 1/4 orange juice and served that over rice topped with steamed broccoli. Dinner was quick and very flavorful. I know we will be having this again!

Pumpkin Cake II

Reviewed: Mar. 18, 2014
This is a wonderful recipe. I did some minor tweaking. I had 6 eggs I needed to use so I upped the servings to 21. I was able to get 5 dozen cupcakes from this. I used homemade pumpkin puree and I used pumpkin pie spice. I also added vanilla along with the rest of the spices called for. I skipped the oil and used 1 cup of butter instead. I was going for more of a muffin and added a crumb topping (in my profile) to them. They baked up with nice rounded tops and took about 13 minutes to bake. Perfect muffins with slight changes. Will be making this again!

Pork Carnitas with Cilantro Tomatillo Sauce

Reviewed: Mar. 11, 2014
I went with using my slow cooker as I didn't have the time to prepare as the recipe directs. I also used a 3# loin and left it whole. I cooked the loin for about 6 hours and I was able to easily shred the meat using two forks. I knew the loin would soak up most of the liquid and when I first tasted it I did not care for the powdery feel of the little sauce there was. I added about 1/2 cup of Southern Comfort Fiery Pepper and a pinch or two of salt. I continued to cook the meat for another hour. The meat was tender and the flavors were deep and rich. We do not care for tomatillos so I made a fresh, hot and spicy salsa to go with our meal. We all enjoyed this recipe very much and I will likely be making this again.

Sweet and Spicy Salmon with Grapefruit Salsa

Reviewed: Mar. 10, 2014
My review is based on the rub and cooking method alone. The salsa was a no go due to medical reasons and the other is simply that my kids don't care for grapefruit. 2 strikes = improve so I used a fresh hot and spicy salsa. I used tomatoes, cucumbers, green & red peppers,red onion, parsley, lime juice, garlic and some poblano & serrano peppers - a bit of salt and pepper. Nice and fresh and it married nicely with the seasonings of the rub. We liked the rub very much. It was not spicy for us so I made the salsa with a bit more heat. I served over a bed of rice I tossed in some Mazola oil I sauteed a bit of garlic and parsley in. Normally I would use butter but the oil was pleasantly light and flavorful. Will be making this again hopefully on the grill with a cedar plank.

Janet's Rich Banana Bread

Reviewed: Feb. 26, 2014
This is a great recipe. I doubled the amounts and baked in my Wilton long Loaf Pan. Minor adaptations- my butter was quite soft so I creamed it into the sugar, my bananas were also very ripe and soft and I creamed them into the sugar mixture,I used brown sugar for a deeper flavor, I swapped baking powder for the soda for more lift and lightness. I used non dairy sour cream. Fantastic recipe that handles small changes well. I sliced the loaf into 1 inch thick slices and froze in ziplock bags for lunches. Held up very well.

Parmesan Baby Bellas Recipe

Reviewed: Feb. 15, 2014
These were so good I confess I made them twice already this week. Simple way to prepare mushrooms as a side dish which is something I normally wouldn't do. Mushrooms go 'in" recipes but these are a wonderful side dish all on their own.

Lela's Protein Mango Smoothie

Reviewed: Jan. 31, 2014
Yum! I doubled the recipe for for my daughter and me to enjoy for breakfast. I had a large, very ripe mango that gave me about1 and 1/2 cups of fruit. I cut it then gave it a quick freeze for 30 minutes. I used a banana, that was also frozen, in place of the honey for sweetness. It was equally as ripe. I had some vanilla almond milk and used inulin powder in place of the whey. We thoroughly enjoyed this and it was perfect for breakfast! Thanks for the recipe - we'll be making this again :)

Cream Cheese Mints

Reviewed: Dec. 30, 2013
My daughter made these for the Holidays. Thankfully they were made far enough in advance that they had more time to dry. 2 days was not enough. We placed them in clear cellophane bags and added them to our holiday cookie trays. Would definitely make again.

Knorr Spinach Dip

Reviewed: Dec. 30, 2013
Been a loooong time since I made a Knorr dip. I forgot just how good it is! I used fat free mayo and non dairy sour cream. I skipped the chestnuts out of personal preference. Easy and delicious!
