Okra, Corn and Tomatoes

Reviewed: Jul. 11, 2009
I was looking for a good recipe for okra. This was quick, easy, and excellent in flavor. I served this with grilled chicken. The only changes I made was to use fresh okra and tomato. Everything else was the same. Awesome!!!! Thanks for sharing.

Sam's Famous Carrot Cake

Reviewed: Jul. 11, 2009
This was awesome!!!!!! I made this recipe with an egg substitute, soymilk, and deleted the walnuts because of food allergies and it turned out excellent. My friends could not even tell that I had omitted that stuff. I used a cream cheese icing from the store without dairy in it. I sprinkled coconut on top. My cake was a little short. If I make this again, I will probably try to use two 8 inch round pans or a little different egg substitute to get just a little more height. I make this review for those with food allergies in their families to encourage them to try some recipes for loved ones. It is more difficult, but it is not impossible. The cake has excellent flavor and baked beautifully with the instructions as provided. Thanks for sharing your family recipe!!!

A Southern Fried Chicken

Reviewed: Jun. 15, 2009
I was looking for a great recipe for Fried Chicken with coating that would not be soggy or fall off. I found it. If your coating is soggy you do not have your oil hot enough. I am also not sure why others are criticizing the name of the recipe and docking stars for that. A cook is allowed to name their recipe however they see fit. To heck with all you who think this is not "southern". It is as southern as Hot Sauce and Jambalaya in my book. The coating is a bit messy, but somehow it was all worth it in the end. It is a great, crunchy, and spicy coating. This is not a traditional fried chicken recipe, but it is good and deserving of 5 stars. Thank you Jason!!! When I am in the mood, I will be choosing your recipe.

Braccialoni

Reviewed: Jun. 5, 2009
I thought this was a very good, easy dinner. I will certainly make this again. I deleted the egg because I have a boy with egg allergy and I did not miss it. I also used cracker crumbs in lieu of bread crumbs and put Italian seasoning and a salt free herb and garlic seasoning on the crumbs. I put it in the slow cooker and it was so tender. I made this again and used up some ham lunch meat. I think I liked it better than the bacon.

Texas Enchilada Sauce

Reviewed: May 21, 2009
I thought this sauce was excellent and not difficult to make. I skipped the baking step and just rolled up chicken stuffing in corn tortillas and splashed the sauce on top. I let everything soak for a minute and then served with cheese on the side. It is great for those with dairy allergies in the family. This way the little one could eat the chicken and tortillas and the rest of us could still enjoy the cheese. I served with guacamole and Best Black Beans from this site.

Asian Roll Lettuce Wrap

Reviewed: May 21, 2009
I liked the combination of flavors. I liked how it is a complete meal. I liked how quick it was. I just thought that the turkey meat lacked a little flavor. Something was definitely not right. I am not sure what it was or how to fix it.

South Texas Carne Guisada

Reviewed: May 21, 2009
I really liked the flavor of the meat. There is not much heat, but when you are eating it with a guacamole that is authentic, a salsa with heat, and Best Black Beans from this site, you cannot go wrong and will want to eat the whole pot. Of course, you must serve this with authentic corn tortillas and not the ones from the grocery store......It is an absolute party in your mouth!!! This is going into the regular rotation for the south Texas fare.

Traditional Gyro Meat

Reviewed: May 13, 2009
I made it as shown except at the end of the cooking, I put a weight on the top of the gyros to make it flat and squeeze more of the fat out of it. It also made it more rectangular in nature instead of humped like meatloaf. I had some problems mixing the meat in my blender. I had to do it in small batches so that it would not overheat my blender. This made the prep more time consuming, but the meat had a very good consistency. My three year old ate it right up. He thought it was a new kind of hamburger.... I think next time that it would be better grilled or sauteed in a little oil.

Best Black Beans

Reviewed: Apr. 23, 2009
These are really yummy!!! The only thing I do differently is that I saute the onion and garlic in a little olive oil before I add the beans, and I use a little chicken broth to cook in.

Kalua Pig in a Slow Cooker

Reviewed: Apr. 22, 2009
I added onions and fresh garlic to make this even better. It is good the way it is, but the onions and garlic put it even further over the top!!!! My family likes to eat it with BBQ sauce on it. I had guests who prefer gravy so we skimmed some of the broth off of the meat and made a gravy with mashed potatoes. This is a very versatile meat without many ingredients or difficult steps. Good standby for any occasion.

Sausage Smothered in Red Cabbage

Reviewed: Apr. 22, 2009
It does not necessarily look all that appetizing because of the purple look of the cabbage. My hungry crew quickly overcame that when they tasted how yummy it was. Extremely easy and loved by all. I will definitely keep this recipe. Thanks for sharing!!!!!

Seafood And Cabbage Salad

Reviewed: Apr. 9, 2009
This was very yummy!!!! I made this with fresh steamed bay scallops with Old Bay Seasoning on them because they were on sale. I thought that the dressing needed some more punch to it. I am not sure what to add. Never the less, we ate it up and loved every minute of it.

German Rouladen

Reviewed: Mar. 19, 2009
I made this with all the suggestions that I read on this site including...bay leaf, garlic, onion, a little red wine, worchestshire sauce, and cornstarch to thicken. This was just the recipe that I was looking for. I am not sure it is as good as the German restaurant I went to, but it would sure make a good run for the money. I relished every bite and did not want to stop eating. The meat was extremely tender and the gravy was excellent served on mashed potatoes. I served this also with the Red Cabbage recipe from this site because that is what they served at the German restaurant I went to. Thank you for sharing the recipe and thanks to all of you who reviewed it. I will definitely be making this again perhaps even for guests.

Red Cabbage

Reviewed: Mar. 19, 2009
Awesome recipe. I have to admit I was a little concerned while I was cooking it that the spices would be kinda weird, but it went very well served on the side with the German Rouladen from this site. The flavors were awesome together!!!!

Slow Cooker Salisbury Steak

Reviewed: Mar. 16, 2009
The salisbury steak was phenomenal!!!!! I made some substitutions in the recipe due to food allergies in the family, but it sure did not impact the great flavor of these steaks. I will definitely make again because my husband is a meat and potatoes type guy. These really hit the spot. Thanks for sharing.

Slow-Cooked German Short Ribs

Reviewed: Mar. 16, 2009
The sauce is excellent!!! The cooking method is tender. These ribs are a little fatty so remove as much as you can before eating. Leftovers were great!!
