Frijoles a la Charra

Reviewed: Dec. 24, 2012
I gave this recipe four stars only because I didn't follow the recipe exactly. I added the beef bouillon cubes as others suggested, and I omitted the beer, per hubby's request. I also used turkey bacon only because that is all I had, and soaked the beans overnights. Because I doubled the recipe, the cooking time was a little longer. The charro beans taste amazing and taste just like the beans at all the Mexican restaurants in Houston. Thanks for a great recipe!

Grilled Chicken Wings with Sweet Red Chili and Peach Glaze

Reviewed: May 28, 2012
These wings were great! I was a bit nervous to try them because it seemed like they were very Asian inspired wings, but they came out delicious. Everyone enjoyed them and they were simple to make!

Anna's Chocolate Chip Cookies

Reviewed: Jul. 16, 2007
These cookies were delicious. The only thing was that I used margarine instead of butter because i didn't have any. Don't know if it makes a difference. My husband loved them and wouldn't let me take some to share with my co-workers!! He actually took some to work and everyone loved them. Thank you soo much for such a great recipe. Great soft cookies!!! -Helen

Baked French Fries I

Reviewed: May 1, 2007
These fries were okay. I believe they needed some extra salt or something. They seemed to lack a little flavor. Next time I make them I will add seasoning salt and maybe a little less paprika and chili powder.

It was delicious. I used salvadorean sour cream...still tasted great...and i made my own tortilla chips to top it off with. One thing i will omit next time is the whole tomatoes. I'm not a soup person but this one was great...my husband couldn't get enough

It was so moist and delicious. Definitely will make again. Followed some suggestions and sauteed the garlic,lemon, and parsley flakes..i actually used limes because i didn't have lemons and greased my pan with butter...came out delicious...put salt and pepper on the bottom of the tilapia..and on the top i put tony's creole seasoning..then i poured the butter and everything on top with a little bit of parmesan..and baked for 20 minutes...came out beautiful!!
