Beer Margaritas

Reviewed: Oct. 5, 2011
This is the best margarita I ever had! I made some changes after reading the reviews. I used 1/2 Sprite and 1/2 water...I also used lemonade concentrate instead of limeade. and I used a light beer. I put the mixture in the freezer for a few hours to make it slushy. This is the perfect blend of sweetness, with just a hint of tartness! Perfect!

Ice Cream Cake

Reviewed: Oct. 3, 2011
I made this cake with the help of other reviewers! I made only one cake part because I wanted it to be just like a Baskin Robbins cake. I did what ScoobieMama said and it worked great! I lined a 9 inch round cake pan with plastic wrap then added softened ice cream to the lined pan. I put it in the freezer overnight and it was VERY easy to remove. Then I made the boxed cake mix in the same 9 inch round pan. Let it cool in the fridge to make sure its totally cooled. Then I assembled the 2 pieces and frosted it with whipped topping. I covered it with a plastic cake dome and placed it back in the freezer til it was ready to serve, which was 3 days later! It was just like the cake I buy from Baskin Robbins, but it was 1/3 the price! I will always make my own ice-cream cakes from now on!

Out of this World Pasta Salad

Reviewed: Sep. 10, 2011
This was very good! I made it as written except I used regular broccoli...I couldn't find the alien kind! And I used all wagon wheel, no spiral. I may add some green onion next time...just for more flavor! I did use the black olives, as suggested, and it went very well with this salad!

Johnny Cake

Reviewed: Aug. 3, 2011
My first review didn't show up, so here it goes again! I found almost the exact same recipe for this but it was made into pancakes! I loved it! It had double the amount of milk and I used honey instead of sugar. I mixed all the ingredients together and cooked it on a griddle, just like pancakes...also called 'Johnny Cakes'... I served it with a fried egg ontop and sprinkled it with bacon salt and green onions, as you can see in my photo! We loved it!

Grilled Fruit Kabobs

Reviewed: Jul. 4, 2011
This was very good! I made it as suggested by the member named Jillian! I loved her caramel sauce idea! My fruits of choice were mangos, peaches, bananas and strawberries! I'll have to try this again with other fruit combos...maybe cherries and pineapples next time!

Slow Cooker Pulled Pork Roast

Reviewed: Jun. 21, 2011
This was very good after a few tweaks! I had a problem with the dry rub..it was TOO dry! So I added another tablespoon of oil. I thought the finished product was a little too tart so I added 1/2 cup of'Sweet Baby Rays' barbeque sauce to the slow cooker after I put the shredded pork back in...then it was PERFECT!!

Corn on the Grill

Reviewed: Jun. 20, 2011
I made this tonight and it was PERFECT! It is tender, smokey, sweet and spicy...very much a Tex Mex flavor, which I love! I tweaked it similar to what Jill did by soaking the corn and grilling it with the husks! Instead of using the seasoned butter on the corn AFTER it was cooked, I peeled back the husks and brushed it on and then I relpaced the husks and grilled on low flame for 30 minutes...turning constantly! The husks will flame up while grilling, but thats what gives the corn that great smokey flavor! I didn't use the lime juice because I didn't have any. I will use this recipe for grilled corn from now on!

Grilled Radishes

Reviewed: Feb. 19, 2011
I was trying to think of something to do with radishes besides eat them raw because I truly dislike the spicy flavor of raw radishes! So I decided to saute them in butter with fresh minced garlic, salt and pepper...this worked PERFECTLY! The spicy flavor was gone! This tasted just like sauteed cauliflower but with the texture of pan fried potatoes! And I love the pretty mauve color! Then I saw this recipe which is almost exactly how I prpared them except I didn't grill them in foil packets and I didn't use any ice. This was less expensive than cauliflower. I'll be making this often! Great side dish for meat or can be served ontop of pasta!

Cranberry Orange Relish with Orange Flavored Liqueur

Reviewed: Nov. 23, 2009
I've made this many times for Thanksgiving and everyone loves it! In my opinion, its much better than cranberry jelly! Very easy and it has a very refreshing flavor! I use 1- 12oz. bag of fresh cranberries, about 3/4 cup of white sugar and 1 large navel orange. I didn't use the orange liqueur and it was still delicious! This makes about 2 1/2 cups of relish!

MVP of any party dip

Reviewed: Nov. 21, 2009
I kept forgetting to make this but I finally remembered last night!!! This was extremely good!!! I only used 6oz. of the hot sauce because I'm whimpy when it comes to spicy foods...but it was still too spicy for me! I ended up adding 3 Tbls. of honey to help tone down the heat...then it was perfect! I used ranch dressing instead of blue cheese (just a personal preference)...this was gobbled up real quick! I served it with tortilla chips and celery sticks and it was delicious with both! I will make this again for the Super Bowl!

Veggie Enchiladas

Reviewed: Nov. 11, 2009
This was VERY good!!! The only changes I made was to add salt and pepper while sauteing the zucchini and I also added an extra clove of garlic because I just LOVE garlic! I used 2 small zucchinis, 1 large can of black beans, 1 large can of green sauce and 16 oz. of cheddar cheese. This made 14, taco sized, enchiladas. I agree with you...I think the green enchilada sauce is much better than the red! The green sauce complimented the flavor of the vegetables perfectly! This is a must try recipe!

Mushroom and Sweet Pepper Sandwich

Reviewed: Nov. 11, 2009
Wow! This is a tasty little sandwich!!! I made it exactly as written except I used wheat bread instead of rye. I made the dressing out of honey dijon mustard and mayo. I've never tried that before but I really liked it! It went perfectly with this sandwich! 10 Stars!

Chicken Tortellini with a Mushroom Spinach Sauce

Reviewed: Nov. 11, 2009
This was very good! Instead of cooking everything together, I sauteed the onions, garlic, mushrooms and seasonings in a bit of olive oil first. Then I added the spinach and let it wilt down before adding the tomatoes. To thicken the sauce and make it a little creamy, I added about 1/2 cup of ricotta. This worked perfectly and I highly recommend it! I've never used mushrooms and spinach in my tomato sauce, but I really liked it! Thanks for turning me on to a new way of making sauce! Great recipe! The photo was taken without the ricotta.

Easy Shrimp in Creamy Basil Sauce

Reviewed: Nov. 10, 2009
This was perfect! The only change I made was to use chicken instead of shrimp because my 18 year old won't eat shrimp! And I used fat free half n' half. There was plenty of cream sauce and I only used 1 1/2 cups of the half n' half. The flavor of the garlic, fresh tomtatoes and basil really comes through. I served it with grated parmesan cheese. This is a recipe I'll use often!

Cheeseburger Pockets-ci Recipe

Reviewed: Nov. 7, 2009
This was so very good! The only changes I made was to use chopped up dill pickles instead of dill pickle relish (I couldn't find this) and I used real onions instead of dried. I also toasted the sesame seeds. Also, I doubled the recipe and it was just enough for 8 burgers. Will definitely be making this very often!

Best Ever Meatloaf with Brown Gravy

Reviewed: Oct. 18, 2009
I used this recipe for the gravy only. This was a very good and very easy brown gravy recipe! I made it as written except I didn't have any mushrooms, but it was still very tasty! I would of liked it to be a little thicker, so next time I'll add less liquid. This will be my gravy recipe from now on!
