Potato Chowder Soup I

Reviewed: Sep. 26, 2008
I give this recipe 3 stars because I change a lot, but it is a good basic recipe. I sauteed my potatos and onions first with oregano, pepper, garlic and fresh garlic. I cooked the chowder in my slow cooker. I added water with a chicken bullion cube. Addedd the potatos, then cooked some frozen vege mix with some maragine and salt on the stove and added to the soup. I let it cook a few hours and then cooked fresh mushrooms on the stove and then added. did the flour, margarine and milk mix the same and just added some pepper. came out really good! i'll be making it again.

Terry's Texas Pinto Beans

Reviewed: Jun. 4, 2009
I don't care for beans, but my boyfriend loves them. So I decided to use my pinto beans I bought months ago. I never made them before so I thought I'd look up a recipe and I got a good idea on how to make mine with a little bit of alterations. I used a chicken bullion cube, onion, a jalapeno, cumin, salt, garlic powder, some creole seasoning, and a can of chipotle salsa. These are pretty spicy and good! I do love almost anything spicy =9

Mini Cheesecakes III

Reviewed: Jun. 13, 2009
My mom has made cupcake cheesecakes before and I wanted to try it out, but don't have the recipe she uses. So I thought I'd try this out and sorry to say this one doesn't compare. I was disappointed, but they are OK.

Seven-Minute Pudding

Reviewed: Jun. 17, 2009
Very good! And easy, even without the microwave. I used the stove and believe it was less than 7 minutes. I wouldn't use the microwave for this, especially with milk. I used this for a cake and fruit desert, sort of a trifle when I didn't have box pudding on hand and it was much better this way!

Oven-Fried Catfish

Reviewed: Jun. 22, 2009
I liked this, although I modified it to my liking. I'm not a big fan of corn meal so I made a mix of flour, bread crumbs with a bit of corn meal. I didn't measure, just threw some in there. I added salt, pepper, garlic, creole seasoning and parsley flakes. I then used catfish nuggets! Turned out well and I'll be using it for a fish taco =9

Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies I

Reviewed: Jun. 22, 2009
These were awesome after changing it up some. I used 1/2 cup of shortening and 1/2 cup of butter, 1/2 tbl of vanilla, a dash of nutmeg, cinnamon, 1/2 cup of pecans and 1 cup of raisins. These are thick and very chewy, loved it!

Reviewed: Jun. 22, 2009
These were easy to make and pretty good. Although a little dry. I don't care for corn meal much, but maybe thats my problem. I made this for my dad and he loved it!

Chicken Tortilla Soup I

Reviewed: Jul. 15, 2009
I really don't care for soup and especially my younger sister doesn't either. She is always hating on soup and after she saw her picky boyfriend eat and rave about it she gave it a try. I'm soo glad I finally gave this recipe a try because I'll continue to make this soup! I didn't use this exactly. I started off with whole chicken thighs in the pot and seared them for a few minutes on both sides while sauteing onions & garlic with the chicken. Then added the liquids. I decided not to use hominy since I was trying to cut back on carbs. I cut corn off fresh corn on the cob. Used one can of fat free clear broth, 1 chicken bullion cube & 1 tomato bullion cube. I used 1 jalapeno chopped and a can of whole stewed tomatoes. I didn't have any black beans, but I used a can of red beans and it's just as good. Topped with cheddar cheese, chopped white onion, cilantro, chopped corn chips, sour cream and guacamole. FANTASTIC!

No Bake Cookies III

Reviewed: Jul. 29, 2009
I LOVE the taste of these! 4 stars because mine came out a little mushy. They should be more formed. I would also like a recipe with less sugar.

Party Pinwheels

Reviewed: Nov. 9, 2009
I loved these! So did everyone else at my sister's baby shower. I used Mission tortilla wraps in cheddar jalapeno and since it came with 6, I was able to make 6 and not only 4 as this recipe calls for. I used half of the ranch mix, omitted the celery, mixed the all the veggies into the cream cheese, spread the mix on the tortillas, sprinkled cheese and topped with pastrami slices. Came out perfect...yum!

Big Al's K.C. Bar-B-Q Sauce

Reviewed: Dec. 31, 2010
I'm not big on BBQ sauce because it's so sweet, but making a homemade one made it fun and more flavorful. This is sweet, but everyone liked it. I didn't get to use cayenne pepper so I used crushed red pepper instead which went will since I added it to shredded chicken for bbq chicken sandwiches. I also used the restaurant style cole slaw recipe from this website and it went well on the sandwiches. Tasty!

Sweet Restaurant Slaw

Reviewed: Dec. 31, 2010
This is pretty good and the best I've ever had and I don't care for cole slaw. I used part sour cream along with the miracle whip, extra virgin olive oil, rice wine vinegar and omitted the poppy seeds. The only thing I hate is how runny cole slaw gets and I guess thats normal? I would sit if you want this, but serve it after preparing if you don't want it runny for more of a crunch. I made it for BBQ chicken sandwiches which is why I think it'd be better this way for a less soggy sandwich.

Split Pea Soup

Reviewed: Dec. 31, 2010
This comes out better each time I make it! I simmer my ham bone with a good amount of meat left on from the holidays along with a chicken bullion cube, crushed fresh garlic, onions, carrots, italian spice, garlic, a few bay leaves and pepper. After a few hours I take the bone out, remove meat, chop off and put aside. I add my split peas and after 45 minutes when they're cooked I add the ham back and add a can of new potatoes chopped. Came out perfect and so delicious!

African Chicken Stew

Reviewed: Jul. 22, 2011
My boyfriend's family is from Zimbabwe and I love every chance I get to try her cooking. Always flavor-able and delicious! She usually makes a spinach with peanut butter and while I don't care for it, I've come around to the flavor of it in savory food because of her cooking. So I modified this recipe and added spinach & fresh tomatoes, chicken stock, brown sugar and less peanut butter. It's soo good & I wish I knew how to make their staple food sadza to go with it!!

BEST EVER Mac and Cheese

Reviewed: Nov. 30, 2011
This is better in my opinion without the cottage cheese. It's better to mix quickly after noodles are boiled and get a creamy cheesy mix...also might help to stir in a little milk as needed. I like fresh tomato slices on top!
