Slow Cooker Cilantro Lime Chicken

Reviewed: Nov. 9, 2012
Made exactly to the recipe. Cooked about 8 hours on low and it shredded SO easily! Served with flour tortillas, pico, sour cream and salsa. Really great! Don't overdo the lime. I used one medium size but very juicy lime and it was almost too much for my taste

Shrimp and Peanut Butter Noodles

Reviewed: Nov. 9, 2012
This was amazing! I used rice noodles because that is what I had. I also didn't have black vinegar so used vinegar instead. Increased sauce proportions by 50%. Added 3 medium cloves of garlic and some chili paste and it was AWESOME!

Angela's Awesome Enchiladas

Reviewed: Sep. 25, 2012
I tasted these...made 9-25-12 right before leaving for Dallas to leave for the fam to heat up the next night when I would be out of town. Made from cooked leftover chicken. Made my own enchilada sauce from the Ten Minute Enchilada sauce recipe on this site. Very good! Didn't have green onions or black olives but those would have been a good addition. Cut this recipe in half but still used 5 eight inch flour tortillas and it was plenty for 2-3 people

Taco Pies

Reviewed: Sep. 15, 2012
We loved it. I baked the pie crust til it was totally done. Used 1/2 can of beans that were warmed upon the bottom. 3/4 lb of ground beef cooked with onion and seasoned with taco seasoning. Then quite a bit of raw onion, a thin layer of Pace Picante sauce, about 1 cup of cheese, 1 1/2 cups crushed Santitos (these were perfect!) then another 1-1 1/2 cups of cheese. Baked about 15 minutes. Topped with sour cream, salsa and lettuce.

Boilermaker Tailgate Chili

Reviewed: Sep. 15, 2012
Made this when I got home from Maine and wanted something spicy. Sep 2012 Did everything as in the recipe but only 1/2 green and 1/2 red pepper. Used the Regular Chili Powder from Penzey's. 4 cans diced tomatoes and 4 cans beans. 1/2 of lg jalapeno peeled and seeded, 2 stalks celery and 5 slices cooked bacon with about 1 Tbsp of bacon grease. Next time will saute the veggies in the grease as recommended by others. Used about 1/2 of a Boulevard Wheat beer and instead of bouillon cubes used a can of beef broth

Yellow Squash Casserole

Reviewed: Sep. 3, 2012
Made on 9/3/12 - next time BARELY cook the squash - for 4 cups squash keep it to 1/2 cup onion since I used about 1 cup and didn't like it. I also used 3 lg. strips bacon which was good. I used about 40 crackers and 6T butter IN the casserole and still 2T on top. I drained it VERY well after cooking the veggies but it was just too mushy.

Simple BBQ Ribs

Reviewed: Sep. 3, 2012
Easy easy easy! Made just like the recipe states. Boiled 45 minutes, let sit 30 minutes in the hot water then baked 1 hour in a foil pan to avoid the clean up mess.

Asian Lettuce Wraps

Reviewed: Aug. 30, 2012
Made this 8/30/12 - Used ground pork and sesame oil instead of regular oil. Did not have or use hoisin. Used fresh ginger instead of pickled. Added some lime juice and extra soy. Grated carrots to put on the lettuce. It was great! Oh---don't forget to make the dipping sauce with the sesame oil, soy sauce, chili sauce, rice wine vinegar and a little sugar.

Banana Sour Cream Bread

Reviewed: Aug. 30, 2012
Made this 8/26/12 - made half the recipe and used 2 regular size bread pans. Excellent but not enough banana flavor and I used 3 bananas. Next time use 4 bananas for 1/2 the recipe. Definitely dust the pan with sugar and definitely add the brown sugar/flour/butter topping. Excellent!

Cheese Mexican Corn Spoon Bread

Reviewed: Aug. 26, 2012
Made as directed except only had 5 oz. ground beef so added 5 oz. of hot Italian sausage and cooked that with some chopped onion and red pepper. Also added about half of a chopped fresh jalapeno since we like things hot, in addition to the chopped green chiles from the can. Would have liked it layered better---in other words mix everything but the meat, pour 1/2 into the pan, then all the meat, then the other half of the cornbread mixture. Also would have liked more jalapeno.

Cheesy Zucchini Casserole I

Reviewed: Aug. 3, 2012
This was AWESOME and EASY! Didn't take more than 10 minutes to prep and then you can relax while it bakes! I made it pretty much to the recipe but added 1 extra slice of bread, 1 extra TBSP of butter and 1 extra egg

Spicy Coconut and Lime Grilled Shrimp

Reviewed: Jul. 29, 2012
Made exactly as it but can only give one star! The soy sauce totally overpowered everything and the shrimp simply tasted overly salty and soy-ish! I will try this again with about 25% of the soy that it calls for and may add some brown sugar, maybe 50% more lime juice and garlic and will leave in some seeds from the jalapenos to bring some heat!

Seven Layer Taco Dip

Reviewed: Jul. 28, 2012
I agree with other reviewers about leaving out the lettuce and green pepper but I always have made this using regular refried beans WITHOUT the taco spice and also using sour cream WITHOUT the cream cheese which is MUCH better. REASON: The cream cheese absolutely covers up all flavor from the beans, the cheese, the sauce and the sour cream! UGH! It is so heavy and bland and just coats everything with ZERO taste! :( Why ruin all the spicy flavors! Then you don't need to add the fake taste you get with the taco spice. Leave out the cream cheese and it's a winner!
