Scott Hibb's Amazing Whisky Grilled Baby Back Ribs

Reviewed: Jul. 23, 2010
Wow! First, the sauce. I made it up the night before, following the recipe exactly. To be honest, I didn't like the way it smelled at all, but figured all those 5 stars ratings couldn't be wrong. I kept the faith. Next, the ribs. One tip, put something down in the bottom of your oven to catch drips. They made a mess, even though I folded the foil and placed the ribs with the seal facing up. Oh, well no big deal. Then, the transfer from the oven to the grill. This was a little tricky as the meat just kept falling off the bones! We decided to grill them on foil, because if we hadn't, all the meat would have fallen into the fire. We used no stick foil, but we still had some "stickage." They were still quite juicy and generated a lot of smoke as their juices drained into the fire. Finally, we got them on the table to eat and...WOW! Amazing and worth every bit of the mess. Before we tasted them my husband was pretty annoyed with the mess on the grill. After one bite, though, he decided the mess wasn't really all that bad. Kind of like how you forget labor pains when you first hold that precious baby! Excellent recipe with just the right amount of "bite." If you do not like spicy food, cut back the red pepper a little.

Spicy Garlic Lime Chicken

Reviewed: Jan. 28, 2009
This is very flavorful! I am giving it 5 stars, because I came home from work last night with no plan for dinner and was able to produce this lovely little dish from what I had in the pantry/freezer in less than 30 minutes. That's a 5 star recipe for me!

This is an excellent, flavorful sauce. I have been searching for a sauce like this for a long time and am glad to have finally found it. Thank you!

Pumpkin Pancakes

Reviewed: Oct. 31, 2010
These are delicious. When I went to my pantry, though, I realized I didn't have enough flour and made these with pancake mix as another reviewer suggested. Excellent. Definitely a keeper.

BBQ Pork for Sandwiches

Reviewed: Jan. 6, 2009
This was the easiest, best BBQ I have ever made. I was tempted to throw in an onion, because I was afraid it would not have enough flavor. However, I decided not to and didn't miss it at all. It was very flavorful. I made it in the Crock Pot, just cooked it on low for 6-8 hours, drained the juice, added BBQ sauce and let it sit on "warm" for an hour or two. We had nothing left over and I can't wait to make it again.

Beef Tenderloin With Roasted Shallots

Reviewed: Jan. 6, 2009
I made this for Christmas dinner and it was absolutely delicious. I was very torn about whether or not to put the sauce in the blender, as there were so many people who recommended each way. I decided to make it exactly as the recipe says and I was not sorry. I am sure, though, that the sauce would be wonderful blended, as well. I don't think you can really mess up something so fundamentally good. Thanks for sharing!

Blackened Tuna

Reviewed: Nov. 2, 2010
I made this using the seasoning from the "Cajun seasoned snapper" recipe and tuna my husband caught the day before...amazing!! I just doesn't get any better.

Apple Crisp II

Reviewed: Nov. 16, 2010
I made using 1/2 whole wheat flour. I also doubled the topping. This could probably be made with less sugar. A little too sweet for me.

Cranberry Hootycreeks

Reviewed: Nov. 18, 2010
I customized and changed this to just make at home in your kitchen, rather than giving as a jar gift. You CAN mix butter, eggs and vanilla, but it does require the use of a hand mixer. Anyway, these cookies are AWESOME!!! Absolutely delicious. My new favorite. Thanks for the recipe!

Never Enough Green Bean Casserole

Reviewed: Nov. 28, 2008
This was the best green bean casserole I've ever made. Definitely better than the old standard on the side of the can of french fried onions! I did use fresh mushrooms and real bacon and I think it was the right thing to do.

Chex® Pumpkin Pie Crunch

Reviewed: Dec. 21, 2010
I couldn't find cinnamon chex, so I used Cinnamon Toast Crunch like some other reviewers. I also discovered too late that I only had about 1/2 tsp. vanilla, so I added 1/2 tsp. almond extract. This is dangerous!

Cajun Fish Seasoning

Reviewed: Jan. 16, 2011
This is excellent. I prefer to cook fish on the grill, but otherwise, I did everything exactly as the recipe says. The spice mix makes lots. I saved the extra in a spice container. Now it's ready to go any time I want to make this dish. I've tried it both with snapper and amberjack and both are wonderful. The key is being quite generous with the seasoning.

Quinoa and Black Beans

Reviewed: May 2, 2010
I actually thought this was very good, but no one else in my family cared for it. 5/10/10: I upgraded my rating to 4 stars. I took this to work for lunch everyday for a week and it is delicious. So what if my husband and children don't like it. I think it is excellent and will make it for myself again. It keeps and reheats very well. 4/1/12: I've upgraded to 5 stars. I don't care that my family won't eat it. It's delicious and healthy. A perfect dish in my mind!!

Sarah's Applesauce

This recipe is heaven. If you have an apple peeler/slicer, it is so incredibly easy to make better applesauce than you can buy in any store!

Banana Crumb Muffins

Reviewed: Nov. 2, 2008
I've given a few 5 star ratings to other recipes on this site, but this is the best. I did follow the suggestion of another reviewer and added 1 tsp vanilla, 1/2 tsp nutmeg and 1/2 tsp cinnamon to the batter. These were absolutely incredible!! Thank you for sharing!

Janet's Rich Banana Bread

Reviewed: Jan. 28, 2009
This is absolutely delicious and disappeared in less than 48 hours. Everyone was upset when they realized it was all gone already! The only comment I have is that I had to bake it for over 70 minutes and it still was not quite as done as it should have been. My oven is usually pretty accurate, too. Anyway, this is my new staple banana bread. Thanks for sharing!

Balsamic-Glazed Salmon Fillets

Reviewed: Oct. 13, 2008
I followed this exactly, except I put the glaze/marinade on the salmon about 3-4 hours before I baked it. It was delicious!! Also, super easy.
