  • Citrus Chicken Stir Fry

    CURTISLEE's rating:
    This recipe is named appropriately. Without telling my wife the kind of stir-fry I had prepared, she commented about the citrus-like flavor. The flavor is rich without being too overwhelming. I ... Read full review
  • Special Turkey Gravy

    CURTISLEE's rating:
    Despite the simplicity of this recipe, it turns out a gravy which is lump free, rich, golden brown in appearance, and most importantly, delicious. I was skeptical that a recipe with so few ingre ... Read full review
  • Sausage Stuffing

    CURTISLEE's rating:
    Yeah, this one is a definite keeper. The flavor is as good as any dressing I have ever had. I prepared mine in a slow cooker. Since I doubled the recipe, until the bread compacted, it barely fit ... Read full review
  • Cranberry Glop

    CURTISLEE's rating:
    I'm not sure what "glop" means, but it doesn't sound particularly appetizing. To the contrary, this dessert dish *is* very good. It's similar to apple crisp, but because of the tartness of the c ... Read full review

    CURTISLEE's rating:

  • Award Winning Chili

    CURTISLEE's rating:
    This is a five-star chili recipe, if there ever was one. We like a meaty chili, so I used 2 pounds of ground beef, instead of the 1.5 pounds called for. Obviously, that required more liquid be ... Read full review

    CURTISLEE's rating:
