Bacon Crackers

Reviewed: Aug. 18, 2014
I made these for a party and they were gone in about 3 minutes! People just stood over the plates and ate them till they were gone. I used rectangular crackers and center cut bacon. I sprinkled with cayenne, which is a must, I agree with previous reviewers. The ones that came out the best were the ones where the raw bacon piece was slightly bigger than the cracker. After baking it covered the cracker perfectly from end to end. This is my new go-to finger food party recipe!

Creole Okra

Reviewed: Jan. 11, 2013
We really enjoyed this great way to fix okra. It went really well with the Cajun Pecan Catfish (made with cod instead) from this site.

Mulligatawny Soup I

Reviewed: Mar. 14, 2012
Sorry, did not like this. I have many other soups with similar ingredients that I would prefer to use. I think the flour (which I've never seen in Indian dishes) gave it a bad taste.

Chex® Pumpkin Pie Crunch

Reviewed: Nov. 23, 2011
Be careful, this stuff is addicting! I have made it twice now and have learned to only cook it 3 min 40 sec for my microwave. I would also suggest using pecan halves and leaving them whole because they are about the same size as the cereal. If you have smaller pieces they will go the the bottom of the bowl. Let's see if this batch lasts till tomorrow. The last batch never made it to tailgating.

Heather's Grilled Salmon

Reviewed: Jul. 17, 2011
Okay, now I can throw away all my other soy sauce-type salmon recipes, this is THE ONE! I was out of lemon pepper so I just used black pepper and some lemon juice. I made the whole recipe for 3 fillets and set some marinade aside for basting. This recipe is truly delicious!

Easy BBQ Flank Steak with Chipotle Mayo

Reviewed: Jun. 25, 2011
This recipe is a keeper! I got a flank steak from the butcher and he scored it for me. It was only a little over a pound, so I halved the marinade and it was enough. We were half way through eating when I realized I forgot to make the clipotle mayo, hubby got up and just mixed a little ground chipotle red pepper into mayo and it was great, and really made a difference on the steak. Can't wait to make it with the real chipotle mayo!

Reviewed: Jun. 25, 2011
This was really good. Followed the recipe exactly except used dried dill and a little more lemon juice. The dill sauce was spectacular.

Dill Pickle Meatloaf

Reviewed: Jun. 15, 2011
This was really good. I doubled the sauce and would probably triple it next time.

Mexican Tinga

Reviewed: Dec. 21, 2010
This was really good and easy. Because I wanted to cook it in the crockpot, I just threw whole chicken breast halves in the crockpot and covered with the onion/tomato mixture. I sauteed the onions first and blended in the tomato/chipotle mixture. After several hours, I took the chicken breasts out and shredded them. Then I put the shredded chicken back in to cook for awhile and soak up the liquid. This was my first time using tosdadas and we really liked it.

Roasted Potatoes with Greens

Reviewed: Sep. 2, 2009
These potatoes are great! Used tiny red potatoes, halved, and followed exactly. The crusty bits of garlic tasted really good with the potatoes. Next time I would try a mixture of butter and olive oil instead of just butter.

Soy Ginger Salmon

Reviewed: Aug. 19, 2009
Wow! This was great. I grilled instead of broiled, but I can see it being prepared any way, including baked with the marinade. Boiling the marinade to make the sauce is a MUST. Next time I will try it with the Mrs Dash lemon pepper which is salt-free, as another reviewer suggested.

South Indian Chickpea Salad

Reviewed: Aug. 4, 2009
Nice salad for lunch. I really like this IF you leave out the romaine hearts and add cilantro and red pepper flakes. I also left out the celery but will try it next time.

Italian Chicken Skillet

Reviewed: Jul. 31, 2009
This is a healthy and perfectly easy recipe for a weeknight meal. Used rotini and added fresh basil and oregano. Loved the fact that you didn't have to cook the pasta separately. Can't wait to try it with smoked sausage.

Strawberry/Rhubarb Crumb Pie

Reviewed: Jul. 6, 2009
This was my first attempt at a strawberry rhubarb pie and it came out fantastic! Like other reviewers, I cut the sugar to 3/4 cup, added 1 TBS cornstarch, and threw in a few extra strawberries. This is a really good recipe and will make again!

Country Green Beans

Reviewed: Jun. 15, 2009
I could not believe how good this simple recipe turned out. I followed the recipe exactly except used chicken broth like the other reviewers suggested. At the end I threw in some diced up Krakus ham I had in the lunch meat drawer. Next time I will try to cut down on the butter, but it sure was good the way it was!

Chickpea Salad with Red Onion and Tomato

Reviewed: Jun. 15, 2009
I loved this recipe! Used cilantro instead of the parsley and used grape tomatoes cut in half. I'm surprised there was any left because I was picking it out of the bowl as I was making it!

Easy Granola Bars

Reviewed: Apr. 20, 2009
How on earth do you get these out of the pan?? It took me 10 minutes to clean up all the granola that flew around my kitchen as my husband had to chisel them out!!

Sour Cream Chicken Enchiladas

Reviewed: Mar. 27, 2009
These enchiladas are phenominal! I bought 2 7oz cans of El Pato jalapeno salsa and 2 10oz cans of LaVictoria green chile enchilada sauce. I used one whole can of the LaVictoria in with the chicken mixture, along with a little handful of cheese. I used about 1/2 of the remaining can of LaVictoria in the sour cream mixture. The remaining 1/2 of the can we used as extra sauce for our dinner and mexican rice. I baked them uncovered because that is the way I have always baked enchiladas. They could have been a little saucier, so next time I think I will cover it for only 10 minutes and then remove the foil. If yours came out soupy, it is because it was covered the whole time. Anyway, when I took leftovers to work the next day, I was the envy of the lunchroom!

Albondigas Soup II

Reviewed: Mar. 23, 2009
We really enjoyed it. Followed recipe exactly with the exception of using ground buffalo instead of ground beef. Next time, will add a pinch of salt to the meatball mixture. Tasted even better the next day.
