Tex-Mex Burger with Cajun Mayo

Reviewed: Jan. 26, 2013
Our new favorite burger! I made the Cajun Spice Mix by Bobbie Jean on allrecipes for this recipe. Yummmm! Broiled burgers in oven. The only change I made is, I probably added a bit more worcestershire. Try this!

Cajun Spice Mix

Reviewed: Jan. 26, 2013
LOVE this recipe exactly as written. I just whipped this up for the Tex-Mex Burger with Cajun Mayo on allrecipes. I was in a hurry and forgot to read the other reviews so was worried mixture was going to be oversalty. It is perfect! But as others mentioned, this is great to be able to control how much salt you want. Every ingredient is a perfect compliment to the others. Thanks for sharing!

Melon 'n' Grape Medley

Reviewed: May 24, 2009
This is fabulous! I've made this twice in the last two weeks and everyone loves, loves, loves the flavor! It is so easy (followed exactly) and gives any menu a fresh wow! appeal. Thank you! Also, I didn't have time to make the melon balls and just cut up the melons. Still looked great!

Fresh Asparagus Soup

Reviewed: Mar. 11, 2008
Delicious!!!! Loved it even though my food processer also couldn't get it quite smooth....I'll have to get the imulsion blender as mentioned in previous reviews. I agree it is hardy enough for a meal on it's own also. Thanks!

Fantastic Mexican Dip

Reviewed: Mar. 3, 2008
This was a huge hit! I made half just as the recipe says since kids were going to be eating some of this, and half with the changes that senoritak made with the red/yellow/green peppers and sliced jalapenos. All the grown ups LOVED the jalapeno side and gobbled it up! I didn't add alot of the red/yellow/green peppers this time. Next time I will cover it in jalapenos (which are not hot at all if you don't add the seeds). Very pretty presentation as well.

High Temperature Eye-of-Round Roast

Reviewed: Dec. 12, 2007
PERFECT roast! I followed it to the letter and it was THE most tender meat we have ever eaten. Will make again and again and I've already emailed the recipe to my mom and plan on letting all my cooking friends know that this is the ONLY way to cook an eye-of-round roast. Thank you for sharing! :)

Hungarian Mushroom Soup

Reviewed: Sep. 18, 2007
Delicious!!! I made just a few modifications because of items I had on hand. The only change I made is I added leftover chicken that I had (made with the marinade recipe for Grecian Pork Tenderloin on this site). Since the chicken had marinated in lime and oregano, I skipped the dill and added just a teaspoon of lemon juice instead of what the recipe called for. I also made this a little thicker with extra flour and we ate it with some brown rice. This is a new favorite and even my husband who is not a huge mushroom fan LOVED it! I will make the soup as is for my recipe exchange group this month. Thanks for sharing a fantastic comforting soup.

Shrimp Marinaders

Reviewed: Sep. 16, 2007
This was easy and delicious. Like another reviewer, I left the onions in slices and removed them before serving. I did also add green onions and the juice of one lemon. Served over ice with cocktail sauce. (Also, I forgot and bought shrimp with tails ON...worked great)

Magpie's Cucumber Sauce

Reviewed: Sep. 15, 2007
Easy, fresh and delicious. I had to use regular cucumbers as that's what I had and I did add just 1 tsp. fresh minced onion. Very nice with the mint. Thank you.

Indian Tomato Chicken

Reviewed: Jan. 27, 2013
This was a great recipe. I wanted more sauce so I made the following changes: Doubled everything EXCEPT cinnamon, cloves, nutmeg and bay leaves. Since I doubled the onions, I sliced one and sauted until slightly browned. The other onion I diced into the paste. I used 3 chicken breasts instead of chicken thighs. For the tomatoes, I crushed one can of whole tomatoes and then added a can of diced tomatoes. I have a Rometopf clay oven, so after everything was sauted together, I poured the recipe into the clay oven and cooked 45 minutes covered, and 45 minutes uncovered. This dish would be fantastic with shrimp, as well. Just don't add shrimp until last bit to avoid them being rubbery. Great recipe, this is a keeper!

Awesome Slow Cooker Pot Roast

Reviewed: Aug. 28, 2007
This was delicious and too, too easy! I modified it this way just because this is what I had on hand. 1 2 pound cross rib roast. 4 or 5 yukon gold potatoes. 1 envelope onion soup mix. 1 can cream mushroom soup. 3/4 cup water. Cut potatoes in 1 inch cubes and placed in bottom of crockpot. Placed roast on top. Combined other ingredients and poured on roast and potatoes. Cooked on high heat for 5 hours. Thanks for sharing! :)

Festive Tossed Salad

Reviewed: Aug. 25, 2007
Excellent salad! This will go with any meal. I took it to a luncheon and we all especially LOVED the dressing. The other ladies made chicken salad sandwiches and strawberry soup. Perfect combination if you're looking for a good menu! I did add some walnuts and they were very good as well. Great color and easy to make. Thanks!

Perfect Lemon Curd

Reviewed: Dec. 4, 2013
I followed the recipe to a T and it is just right. A nice mix of tart and sweet and the color is beautiful. This is THE curd recipe to follow, especially since it doesn't require extra setting time. So perfect that I featured it on my cooking blog, GoodDinnerMom.com

Annie's Fruit Salsa and Cinnamon Chips

Reviewed: Aug. 22, 2007
I made this the other day for a house warming party and it was absolutely FABULOUS!!!! Beautiful presentation/looks like it was much more work than it was. I used all the fruits called for in the recipe but substituted orange marmalade for the raspberry preserves. This gave the salsa a great hint of citrus plus just one more great bit of color with the orange. I too cut out the white sugar. It doesn't need it!! I added fuji apples at the end instead of the golden delicious. One suggestion I have when making the chips. Buy thin flour tortillas, not the thicker ones. After reading the reviews, here is how I made my chips. As suggested here, I put my tortilla shells on a plate in the sink, sprayed butter flavored pam on both sides, then sprinkled both sides with cinnamon sugar from a shaker. Then I cut the shells with a pizza cutter and baked for NO MORE than 9 minutes. They do get more crisp as they cool. Great recipe and I'll be making it again and again!!!

North Carolina-Style Pulled Pork

Reviewed: Aug. 20, 2007
This was very easy....I had to make it in the crockpot. I also placed the meat with rub in the fridge overnight. Also cooked on top of two quartered onions. Huge party hit. Served with potato rolls and swiss cheese as suggested by another reviewer. We made the sauce that came with this recipe, plus offered Famous Dave's Rich and Sassy for options. We ALSO had some of my famous home-made cole slaw and mashed yukon garlic potatoes for those who weren't in the mood for a sandwich. Great meal!

Grecian Pork Tenderloin

Reviewed: Aug. 20, 2007
I'm making this AGAIN by special request, it's on the grill right now. My family loved this and I can't wait to try it with chicken. Super easy and a great neighbor meal. At medium heat on the grill, this needed more like 45 minutes to one hour to cook for me. Thanks! Updated 9/18/07: I have since made this with chicken as well and it is excellent. We served the chicken with Magpie's cucumber sauce recipe from this site, flour tortillas (homestyle), red onions, lettuce and grape tomatoes. Made a great souvlaki-type meal.

Easy Apple Crisp

Reviewed: Aug. 13, 2007
This was a HUGE hit! Super easy and delicious! I followed other reviewers and made the following changes as well. I used a yellow cake mix, tossed apples with cinnamon and nutmeg, reduced watter to 1/2 cup plus 1 T vanilla, added 1/2 cup oatmeal, changed butter to 6T, baked 50 minutes. Topped with ice cream...YUMMY! Now I'm off to send the recipe to everyone who asked for it. Thanks!

Hawaiian Banana Nut Bread

Reviewed: Apr. 12, 2007
EVERYONE loved this!! From my picky husband and 4 year old son, to all my guests on Easter day. Have made it twice in the last week! Using advice from another reviewer, I didn't change a thing the first time and it was perfect. The second time, I tried it without the coconut. It is much better with the coconut IMHO! Also, 2 cups of bananas is 4 average-size bananas. This should help so you're not having to measure your bananas after they're mashed. I usually have a hard time not making my own little changes to a recipe...which is why I tried to change it the second time. Don't change a thing! This recipe is going to be my Christmas neighbor-gifts for next year! Very colorful and easy to make. Thanks for sharing a great recipe! P.S. Added on 8/24/07, I have now made this recipe MANY times and here are a few more helpful tips (hopefully). First, this recipe will fill three of the aluminum loaf pans that you can purchase for gift giving. Also, the last time I made this I added ALOT of pineapple. That is a big mistake! It makes the bread too gooey, so if you experiment, this is not the ingredient to increase. And one last thing. At least when I bake this, it takes around 55 minutes to be done, at least. My oven is right on, temperature wise, too. ENJOY!!

Garlic Green Beans

Reviewed: Jan. 15, 2007
I too used frozen green beans for this recipe and it was a HUGE hit! Next time I'll use fresh green beans. I really can't imagine this being very tasty with canned beans, personally.

Ham Bone Soup

Reviewed: Dec. 23, 2007
Yahoo! I've been looking for an alternative to lima beans and ham for my leftover ham bone and this is it! Delicious, nutritious and very easy to make. I hardly changed a thing. I just added a couple of carrots and used chicken broth since that's what I had. Like other reviewers I also added a bay leaf and one whole garlic clove. The broth in this soup was wonderful. Very filling and perfect for a cold winter's night to warm the family. Thanks for a great recipe.
