Reviewed Meatloaf Muffins with Barbecue Sauce
"Simple, fast and you cant ruin it! I've tried it with sausage, ground turkey and even with the ground "fake-meat" type products and they all come out great.
Hint - After you take them out of the oven and let them sit a bit, then take them out of the tin and rest on a rack. So they don't have to sit in the grease and cooking liquids.
Reviewed Mini Spinach and Mushroom Quiche
"Im not a big Quiche fan but was asked to make mini's for a late night breakfast buffet over New Years. These came out great. I would add some more spice to pop it up next time for my tastes but a simple dish for snack, apps or a easy meal with salad.
Hint: Dont cook the whole time with out checking at intervels. In my oven they went a nice brown at 19 min or so. At the time listed they almost were too dark (I was using a dark mini muffin pan). Experiment with the amount in each, they didnt raise as high as I expected so on my second batch I fill much closer to the 3/4 ish side and got a nicer bite.
Reviewed Dutch Oven Peach Cobbler
"While the sexiness and ease of this dish can't be missed. A few hints that might help - If you are using the larger sized oven you will want to double the filling portion recipe. While it comes out good as is - the extra filling gives it some real depth to the dish! Caveat - this is best served shortly out of the oven - so mix it up and pop it in just before you serve your meal so it hot and bubbly for dessert.
For those gluten free - the new lines of gluten free baking mix work with this dish as well!
Likes others - this is a "go to" anytime dish!

Too often people think that being gay meant I left behind the comfort foods of my youth in favor of trendy, hip A-list foods. Im here to say its not true. My family and friends who share my table truly miss and come to value the depth of dishes that I grew up with from my mom and others.
I'm a basics kind of guy (but love my exotics too) give me a good hamburg, well cooked shrimp, lasagna or a simple chocolate cake with choc frosting, crisp chocolate cookies and a biscotti and Im happy. But the rest of the time - its about blending my mood, the weather and whats seasonally available where I am.
