Mexican Rice II

Reviewed: Mar. 27, 2008
Very good. Restaurant quality. I used medium grain rice, otherwise kept the recipe the same. Update: We ate out at a mexican restaraunt a few weeks ago, and then I made this rice again shortly after. After comparing it to the rice at Don Pablo's, it was so much better that my husband said we needed to up the rating to a 5 star! :)

Picadillo (Cuban Beef Hash)

Reviewed: Mar. 27, 2008
I served this with tortillas as another reviewer recommended. Even loaded with tomato, cheese, lettuce, and sour cream the overwhelming flavor of green olive could not be covered up enough to make this edible. My not very picky husband quit eating it after just a few bites. I think you need to be a green olive lover to enjoy this dish, and I guess we don't fit that mold. Sadly, the leftovers went into the trash. Supper ended up being Mexican Rice II and chips. I do recommend Mexican Rice II. Restaurant quality! N * R

Baked Brunch Omelet

Reviewed: Mar. 25, 2008
I've been making this for years, and we just had it again on Easter morning. I use sourdough english muffins for the bread, so it doesn't get soggy. Love this recipe!

Pork Fried Rice

Reviewed: Mar. 25, 2008
We thought this was good. It seemed a bit heavy on the soy sauce though. If I make it again, I'll cut back on it a bit.

Gorgonzola-Garlic Dip

Reviewed: Mar. 23, 2008
We served this to my in-laws over Easter weekend. It was pretty good. My brother-in-law ate over half of it it. I scaled the recipe to use a 5 oz. container of Gorgonzola. We didn't think the garlic wasa very prominet flavor though, and we would have liked to taste it more. We could taste the cheese, then the red onion. I didn't taste the olive oil like others did, but I did use an oil for bread dipping. Thanks for the recipe!

Classic Fish and Chips

Reviewed: Mar. 21, 2008
We would give this more than 5 stars if we could. This was a fantastic meal! I used catfish for the fish, and cut it up into chunks. I also used Leinenkugel's Honey Weiss beer instead of milk in the breading. Finally, I went into the deep dark corners of my basement pantry and pulled out The Tater Twister to make the curley fries. I kept the fish warm in the oven as recommended, and it stayed beautifully crisp. The second fry on the french fries (I went about 4-5 minutes until they looked right to me) added just the right crispness to them as well. I did lightly sprinkle the fries with salt right after the 2nd fry. It was a fun meal to eat and make, now I must drop into a pleasant post Classic Fish and Chips meal food-coma. My husband is already in his, napping on the couch! This recipe will be going into my hand-written recipe box. Thanks for the great meal!

Peanut Butter and Pumpkin Dog Treats

Reviewed: Mar. 19, 2008
The Flash Dog loved these treats. I did use more pumpkin as other recommended, as well as omited the salt and cinnamon. I used barley flour since Flash is allergic to wheat. I needed quite a bit of flour to roll them out with upping the amount of pumpkin. I think next time I'll use the amount called for, and just add a little extra to get to the consistancy I need to roll them out. I also cut them smaller, so I only baked for a little over 20 minutes.

Greek Style Potatoes

Reviewed: Mar. 12, 2008
I loved these! We had them with the Greek Bifteki burger as another reviewer recommended. The only change I made to the recipe was to swap out the thyme for oregano.

These were quite good. I did use mostly oregano as recommended by other reviewers, but did add some thyme too.

Snow on the Mountain Green Beans

Reviewed: Mar. 9, 2008
We really enjoyed these! Normally, I'm not a big green bean fan, but I loved these. The feta gives them a good kick! My husband really enjoyed them too. I made them as is, but we thought that adding a little bacon to them would be fun too. I'll probably try that the next time. N*R

French Toast I

Reviewed: Mar. 7, 2008
We actually found this to be a bit bland. I think that if I make this again, I will increase the cinnamon, nutmeg, and maybe even the vanilla. I'll probably look for another recipe.

Candied Carrots

Reviewed: Mar. 1, 2008
I've been making this recipe for years. It is my favorite way to cook carrots. I take the lazy route though, and just use baby carrots.

Honey Roasted Red Potatoes

Reviewed: Feb. 29, 2008
Very unique flavor. I wasn't sure how sweet would go with potatoes, but it was very good. 4 1/2 stars from my husband!

Crispy Baked Chicken

Reviewed: Feb. 28, 2008
Followed the recipe as written. This was pretty good. The chicken stayed nice and moist and the skin was crispy, but I thought it was a little bland.

Exquisite Pizza Sauce

Reviewed: Feb. 23, 2008
Very good sauce. I didn't have any tomoato paste on hand, so I used a 15 oz. jar of sauce and omitted the water. Otherwise, followed the recipe as stated, but did not just the anchovie paste. This made enough for at least 2 large pizzas.

Old-Fashioned Vanilla Pudding

Reviewed: Feb. 20, 2008
Yummy! Reminded me of pudding at Grandma's house. Everyone in our home enjoyed it very much! Only change was to use whole milk instead of 2%.

No Bake Oatmeal Cookies

Reviewed: Feb. 20, 2008
I'm very glad I only halved this recipe, because then I was only out the cost of 1/3 of a stick of butter. Not very good at all. It ended up being thrown out.

Pet Cookies

Reviewed: Feb. 8, 2008
Thank you so much for this recipe! My dog is allergic to almost everything, and I had never thought of using baby food to make dog treats. I used lamb baby food and barley flour since my Flash Dog is allergic to wheat. He loved the treats! As for the other reviewers who commented on cost, for the owner of an allergy pet, this was really inexpensive! I have to drive an hour to the nearest pet store to get a sweet potato biscuit that he can eat, and then pay almost $6 for the small box of treats. Flash and I thank you very much!

Chicken Fried Steak

Reviewed: Jan. 25, 2008
This was great! We used venison chops and they turned out very tender. Since the chops are small, it made quite a few. I kept the ones I had already cooked warm in a 200 degree oven until I was done. This one is a keeper for us, and is going into the recipe box.
