My first attempt to make batter-fried fish. Dang it. Didn't measure the flour properly, so I had a limp, slippy, slidey coating on my fish...hence, no telling the heat and zest existed. Ok. Lesson learned. Potatoes, however, turned out fab and robust after baking an hour in the little toaster oven. Salvaged winterized yet still fragrant rosemary...

I loved babysitting this stew all late afternoon today, my first try at oxtail. Definitely not a crockpot derivative because it needs to be stoked and stirred all day long. So worth it. As the lucky recipients of this delicious twist on stew consisted of just the two of us, I cut the recipe in half, which meant we each had a full glass of the r"

These wings were so out of this world that I recommended it to our friend/tavern owner as an addition to his wing sauce selection. My picky Kevin was skeptical about PEACHES !?!? and is now a convert...asked for it again 2 nights ago when I took wings instead of thighs out of the freezer. I baked them instead in the oven at 425 degrees for 35 mi"

I will never buy store-bought ham salad again after making this. My Ninja food processer minced the ham beautifully, as well as the celery stalk, 1/2 onion and sweet butter pickles. Then processed 4 ounces of cream cheese, about 1 1/4 cup of mayo and 1 1/2 tablespoon of...this is the kicker....not Dijon mustard, but spicy brown mustard. Put it "

Rachel, you ROCK! After a 10-hour workday, I searched for a quick and easy shrimp recipe, found yours, had all the ingredients on hand and went at it. At the end, on impulse, instead of ground pepper I sprinkled a touch of cajun seasoning, poured the shrimp over rice and served it immediately. Kevin absolutely loved it...said it had just the ri"

First thing out of Kevin's mouth was "you can make THIS again!" I AM...tonite! Totally awesome, so much so that Kevin bragged to his friends he had shrimp cooked in vodka. They were impressed. Thanks for making me look good Paula! Love y'alllllll!"

When I saw Anne's show featuring the Apple Tart Tatin, I was intrigued and came to this site to get the recipe. I always read the reviews first, however, which resulted in my deciding NOT to go with this recipe for my gathering tomorrow but instead, leave right now and go find Anne's recipe for an apple crisp! I gave this a five-star rating only"

Dear Anne,

You made me look soooooo good tonite, girl! This recipe is outstanding and out there. Kevin came home from a good day of work today and was pleased to see that his recently unemployed lady kept busy by researching, shopping, then making what turned out to be just what the doctor ordered.

Kevin went...

I shared this delicious bread with family at our gathering yesterday and got rave reviews about it! I especially loved adding the fresh squeezed lemon juice and, instead of using shelf cinnamon, I ground up cinnamon sticks in my coffee grinder....AWESOME!! I'm making another batch today! :) Thanks Paula!""
