Guacamole

Reviewed: Feb. 16, 2013
Similar to mine though I prefer red onion and not to add the tomatoes. Always use fresh ingredients for the best results, thanks.

Jamaican Jerk Dry Rub

Reviewed: Jun. 23, 2013
Made small amount of this rub, scaled back for a couple of grilled rib-eyes to try it on. Marinated for 20 minutes,wonderful flavor and aroma. Had a bit left over, rubbed on some chicken breast tenders, marinated half hour while I cut up some veggies for a stir fry. My 5 yrs old grandson ate two helpings, stating it was the bestest chicken ever... Good enough for me, going to try it on a roast chicken today, thanks bunches. I keep a small bottle in the spice cabinet now.

Slow Cooker Philly Steak Sandwich Meat

Reviewed: Nov. 1, 2013
I was looking for something different to try with fajitas. This has a wonderful blend to which I am adding a bit a of Mexican flair with chipotle chili powder, smoked paprika, liquid from diced tomatos, and a splash of wine. Great things from great beginnings. Thx

Brazilian White Rice

Reviewed: Jun. 24, 2014
I have been preparing plain white rice(no cloves)this way for years. I use olive oil almost exclusively for this too. Have made this rice the day before planning to make stir fry, the rice is perfect. While toasting the rice, you can add a dusting of garlic powder and chili powder,chipotle or cayenne, for Spanish rice. Have added to the water dried herbs such as thyme, basil, celery seed, and citrus flavorings of orange, lime, or lemon zest.

Gluten Free Tortillas

Reviewed: Jun. 28, 2014
Added 1 teas. xanthan gum(check if allergic before using) per cup of flour, to allow rolling them out. Tweaked the baking powder a bit less and the second time making these, used coconut oil in place of the shortening. I believe my third attempt to be better the last one...these tortillas are worth trying, very good flavor and texture. Will try making these with an alternative for the xanthan gum after a few more times.

Migas II

Reviewed: Jul. 23, 2014
I always fry the corn tortilla pieces crispier, sprinkled with dry spices like chile(cayenne or chipotle), garlic, and cumin. Push the pieces to one side of the pan and then add the beaten eggs to the open side, cook til almost done and then mix together with torks. Love adding any leftover meats including chicken, taco meat, or chorizo. Diced fresh onion, cilantro, tomato, jalapeno tossed on finished dish adds more flavor and crunch. Also try fresh veggies like corn off the cob or zucchini to 'stir-fry' right in wonderfully. Have some just waiting for my skillet...

Traditional Pork Posole

Reviewed: Jul. 27, 2014
I used this recipe and combined the efforts of similar recipes to extract the steps I wanted to try. Made red chili sauce with a variety of dried peppers. Baked the pork roast using the cook's note and applied a garlic paste to cover the pork roast. While simmering, slipped in some thin sliced carrots that added even more flavor. My first attempt was a success thanks to all the great recipes and suggestions. Traditional condiments are a plus with this dish, fresh is best. I even made the pickled red onions, so glad I did.

Ken's Perfect Hard Boiled Egg (And I Mean Perfect)

Reviewed: Jul. 30, 2014
Ken, with 40+ yrs of cooking and many first time failed attempts, this 'first' a-b-s-o-l-u-t-e-l-y worked for me . I halved the amount for 4 eggs, allowed them to come to room temp. Had one egg(slightly) crack, though did not result with egg whites floating about. Timed them at 15 minutes, shells easily came off, cooked through and no ring bling. The next time I can't sleep, kitchen and fame, here I come. lol Thx!
