Cajun Seafood Pasta

Reviewed: Mar. 5, 2014
I give this a 5 stars based on taste, but 2 stars since I was expecting pasta with some kind of sauce on top. I didn't add red pepper flakes and only used 1 tsp of black pepper. The taste was amazing! The consistency however, was way too thick to be putting on pasta. It was more of a Cajun Seafood Dip that you would eat with chips or crackers. I still give it 5 stars because the flavor was amazing but next time I will try some of the suggestions on here and either add 2 cups of milk, (or 4 cups of fat free half/half), or take out some of the sauce to mix with the noodles before adding the cheese.

Bananas Foster II

Reviewed: Mar. 4, 2014
Awesome and easy to make! I used Bacardi Oakheart spiced rum since it was what I had, and it was very good. Somebody mentioned lighting on fire so you can serve to kids... The rum I used was 70 proof, the same proof as kirkland vanilla. Cooking for 2 minutes will cook out almost all, if not all of the alcohol.

Apple Pie in a Jar Drink

Reviewed: Oct. 20, 2013
Alcohol evaporates at 173 degrees so before you add your alcohol or when reheating for later consumption, keep it below 173. This recipe needs a clove, some vanilla, and a LOT more liquor in it. A liter of grain alcohol is 3.74 gallons at 90% alcohol. For ease of math, let's call it 1/4th a gallon at 100%. Two gallons of apple liquid is 8/4th, so 9 parts toal with 1 part alcohol is 11% or 22 proof. This recipe needs to double the grain alcohol to get it to 20% or 40 proof, (add a stick of cinnamon to each jar and let it set for a few weeks to simmer the taste), or add a bottle of bottle of 100 proof Vanilla Vodka to get it to 30 proof.

Carrot, Potato, and Cabbage Soup

Reviewed: Apr. 2, 2013
Very good and very easy. I threw in some sliced mushrooms and leftover rotisserie chicken, didn't follow the receipe very closely, and it still turned out great. I would agree with the other reviews, a little thyme goes a long way. Next time I will only put in half of what is called for.

Microwave Oven Peanut Brittle

Reviewed: Dec. 22, 2011
Taste great, and the hardest part about making it is the cleanup. 1. Cut the peanuts back to 1 cup or there is too much nut and not enough brittle. 2. I usually taste soda in recipes if too much is used, and I used 1 tspn as the recipe says and could not taste it in the finished product. 3. There are a lot of comments about this receipe getting "burnt", so I reduced the cooking time on the first batch and ended up with some delicious peanut chew. Maybe using roasted peanuts those need to be added lated, but the sugar mixture still needed to cook at least 8 minutes. For a light brown but not chewy candy, my cooking times were: - Sugar, Syrup and salt for 4 minutes - Add 1 cup peanuts and cook 2 more minutes - Add butter and vanilla and cook 2 more minutes I poured it onto parchment paper and stacked in layers in the fridge to cool.

Baked French Fries I

Reviewed: Feb. 12, 2011
Very good fries. I have made these 3 times, the first 2 times I turned half way through and had a tough time getting them flipped without tearing them apart. The last time I didn't flip but turned on the broiler for the last 5 minutes, and they turned out great.

White Bean Chicken Chili

Reviewed: Feb. 12, 2011
Great chili! The first time I didn't use any green tomatoes, just diced red and it tasted awesome. Second time I used salsa verde and no red tomatoes, and it tasted awesome. Both times it was a little watery so I added a can of cream of chicken soup to thicken it up.

Ham and Beans

Reviewed: Feb. 6, 2011
Very good recipe. Mine were a little watery so I took out 2 cups of beans, blended them in a food processor to make a paste, and added them back in to thicken it up.

Armadillo Eggs

Reviewed: Jan. 17, 2011
These were very good. Here are the modifications I made: - 15 Jalapenos (they were pretty large) - used 1 pack of cream cheese and 8 oz of pepper jack for filling. Added a couple dashes of hot sauce and tspn of Old Bay Seasoning. - Only used an 8oz pack of chedder cheese for the outer coating, and I used hot sausage. Some reviews say that they had to add milk, but I did not. It took some work to mix everything in with the sausage, but if you use your hands it is easier. The prep time for me to make 15 was at least an hour, but they were very good and worth the effort.

Pasties II

Reviewed: Nov. 14, 2010
I have never been to the UP and never tried a pasty, but I have seen Escanaba In Da Moonlight many times and decided to make these for deer camp. This recipe was good, but a little bland. Next time I will add some more salt to the crust and more spices to the mixture also, but they were still very good and were all eaten by the 2nd day.

Tomato Soup I

Reviewed: Nov. 4, 2010
This recipe was great. I didn't have an hour to simmer so i left out the onions. I wanted to keep it somewhat healthy so i used skim milk instead of cream and added everything all at once. After it had cooked about 15 minutes i mixed 1 Tbsp corn starch with just enough cold water to let it mix, and put that in the soup which thickened it up and made it seem very creamy without the cream. Seasoned with Northern Italian seasoning from Costco and some salt. It was the best tomato soup i have ever had!

Apple Hermits

Reviewed: Oct. 4, 2010
This recipe needs to be modified to double all ingrediants if you want to have any left overs. This is a very good cookie and easy to make. Hermits are supposed to be dry, and I had no trouble scooping them into balls using a cookie scoop. Made them exactly how the recipe calls for except I left out the nuts, and I use only Golden Raisins. They are more expensive than the hard black raiseis, but after you try them once you will never go back! I tried the glaze on the first batch but found the cookie was very good without it and we left the rest plain.
