Bacon Water Chestnut Rolls

Reviewed: May 20, 2008
I agree, these sound odd, but they were wonderful! I have made them for many parties and they are always among the first dishes to disappear. I followed other reviews and made the sauce with equal parts mayonnaise, chili sauce, and brown sugar. I also try to make the sauce at least several hours beforehand so it has time to blend together.

Guacamole

Reviewed: Jan. 30, 2011
This was my first time making guacamole and this was perfect! I used canned petite diced tomatoes instead of fresh, and added a little cumin and jalapeno. It had none of the "musty" taste that I find with avocados/guac sometimes because it was so fresh, extremely creamy and almost buttery! Delicious!

Tangy Sirloin Strips

Reviewed: Oct. 10, 2010
I'm not sure why this is so delicious, but it really is! I bought "last chance" sirloin 2 days ago that was already looking a little pekid. Late last night I remembered it and went looking frantically for a recipe that uses sirloin, and found this one. I prepared the meat and marinade, thinking "so what" when I read the list of ingredients. Tonight I was eating with my whole family at my sister's house (about 10 people) and brought this knowing it had to be cooked. I prepared as directed but took a short-cut and just used bottled Espresso Red Wine Steak Sauce instead of the glaze at the end. It was crazy delicious but I might add the molasses next time. Everyone raved about how good it was, and my sister even ate a few pieces although she usually doesn't eat red meat or pork at all. The steak was cooked med-well and I usually like med-rare, but it was still amazing. I cut the sirloin into about 1.5x4 or 5 inch strips, and might make them thicker next time to compensate for cooking time of the bacon (and/or pre-cook the bacon a bit as others advised). Also the toothpicks burned away where exposed so we accidentally ended up chewing some. Not sure how to remedy that, perhaps put it on metal skewers instead... I can imagine doing some more tweaking to perfect it, but this is a sure-to-please keeper! I can't wait to make it again!

Slow Cooker Mashed Potatoes

Reviewed: May 20, 2008
I consider myself a mashed potato connoiseur and these are great - hard to mess up! I have made the version with garlic/chive cream cheese as well and they turn out great.

Barbecue Lasagna

Reviewed: Oct. 4, 2010
WOW!!! I was looking for something creative to do with slow cooked pork BBQ leftovers (I added Bull's Eye since the meat wasn't too saucy) and this couldn't have been more perfect! I followed the recipe ingredients exactly but was pretty absent-minded/lazy about following the dirsctions (got the layers out of order, didn't spread things evenly, put the cheese on top in the beginning instead of the last 5 minutes) but it turned out amazing! My husband and I were blown away. This would be perfect to take over to someone's house to be re-heated if you wanted to drop off dinner or for a pot-luck, tailgate, etc. where it could sit out a while. It was fairly quick to make, and you could probably use any kind of slow cooked meat. Imagine the possibilities...leftover pot roast and mashed potatoes, BBQ chicken, mexican beef, etc. Delicious and creative, I'll certainly be adding this recipe to my regular rotation!

Jalapeno Appetizer Pancakes

Reviewed: May 22, 2008
These were unusual but really great! I added ranch dressing powder for a bit more flavor. I usually don't make pancakes and I was surprised at how quick and easy these were to make, I thought they would stick with the cheese but they didn't. I also added finely chopped ham to some but didn't feel it really added anything. A few tips I'll remember for next time, making them smaller (silver dollar size?) makes them more appetizer-y. They need to be cooked on a low setting or they burn easily. Also, I cooked some more thoroughly than others - I thought the less cooked ones (just tan on the outsides, not brown) were better, a little gooey inside like jalapeno popppers. I'll definitely make these again!

Cucumber Sandwiches III

Reviewed: Jun. 21, 2010
I've made these several times (I usually use ranch powder instead of Italian) and they are always a hit with men, women, and children alike! I slice and toast potato hot dog rolls which are a good size.

Mozzarella in Carrozza

Reviewed: May 28, 2008
Yum! Try adding ham, pepperoni (chopped preferably), etc. Dried basil is also okay. Regular sliced italian bread from the bread section works better than fresh - holds together better.

Banana Split Bars

Reviewed: Jun. 5, 2008
This sounded a bit strange but I wanted to try it based on the reviews and it was wonderful!! I have made it twice (half batches in an 8x8 pan) - one time the crust stuck and one time it didn't, I'll probably grease the pan next time and add a bit more butter. The second time I added just a few dashes of salt to the crust which really brought out the other flavors. I also used fresh pineapple just because I had some - yum. I omitted the cherries because I find the flavor too dominant but would definitely try fresh strawberries as another reviewer suggested. This would work with pretty much any fruit!

Bill's Sausage Gravy

Reviewed: Jun. 5, 2008
Wow, I've never made sausage gravy before but this was excellent! I was pleased with the maple sausage, I thought it would be very sweet/dominant but it wasn't. Very easy to make also, I served over refrigerated butter layer biscuits from a can - they were a great complement. Thanks so much for the recipe, many future guests in my house will enjoy it!

Strawberry Spinach Salad I

Reviewed: May 19, 2013
I made this tonight with red onion and without the poppy and sesame seeds (I didnt have any), and the dinner group commented throughout the night about how good it was! I used 1/4 cup sugar and added sliced red onion to the salad, and just used baby spinach so there was no need to cut it. They asked me to bring this salad to every meal from now on, so I suppose it was hit!

Creamy Burrito Casserole

Reviewed: Jul. 10, 2008
Yum! Try putting the second layer of sour cream mix on TOP of the second layer of tortillas next time. I also added ~1-2 tblsp of ranch mix to the soup mix, maybe add some black pepper to the meat/beans. Cream of chicken worked well but I would try other kinds.

World's Best Bacon Cheese Dip

Reviewed: Dec. 29, 2008
Amazing! I made the recipe mostly as directed (except I subbed dried diced onions for green onion, made the cheese mix half swiss/half cheddar, and used 1/4 cup mayo) and it was heavenly. I'm surprised it wasn't super rich but it wasn't. I made another version by adding some artichokes and diced jalapenos - this version was very good also but not as good as the original. I found this dip was best on toasted baguette slices. I'm not sure of the purpose of the crumbled ritz crackers except perhaps for aesthetics; I didn't find it necessary to add them.

Barbecued Beef

Reviewed: Jul. 10, 2008
Wow, this was wonderful! My parents said it was the best BBQ they ever had. I used a pork loin so it was nice and lean and I had no issues with greasiness. I added a bit more worcestershire and liquid smoke (maybe 50% more) than it calls for to make it a little more flavorful. Thanks for the recipe, this will be a regular meal in my house!

Slow Cooker Italian Beef for Sandwiches

Reviewed: Jul. 30, 2008
This was wonderful! I used 2 packets of italian seasoning as some recommended but probably should have omitted the salt then. It was very salty but I rinsed the meat afterward and it was great! I added provolone, onions, and banana peppers as toppings, delicious!
