1-2-3 Jambalaya

Reviewed: Mar. 14, 2013
I made this for lunch today & evidently didn't notice it called for the Zatarain's® Jambalaya Rice Mix when I made out my grocery list, so I had to improvise & make my own. I used 2 cups Minute rice & 2 cups of water & about 1 tsp. Cajun Seasoning instead. It was perfect. I used 13 med size shrimp instead of 1/2 cup. I also used the diced tomatoes with green chili's, so didn't need to add extra Creole Seasoning. It also never said to add the 2 mixtures together at the end, but I did. I would make this over again. Thanks Johnsonville®.

Bacon Ranch Chicken Skewers

Reviewed: May 12, 2012
I tried these today & they were very good. The only thing different I would do is add more red onion on skewer for an added flavor.

Cheesy Chili Enchiladas

Reviewed: Feb. 19, 2013
I made this exactly as stated. Here are my problems with it. Not enough flavor. Need more seasoning of some sort. Wrong kind of cheese for me, I like cheese in Enchiladas that is melted & very runny. The cheddar doesn't melt good enough. The processed cheese: I took it to mean Velveeta. Here is what I would do if I made this again. I would put the Velveeta on the inside of them & put the cheddar on the outside of them. I did sprinkle a little on after I got out of oven, because the Velveeta had kinda dried in place & didn't look good. I would also add some cayenne & jalapenos for more flavor. I would cook it longer also (covered with a lid to hold the moisture). But, it was just OK for me.

Lubed-Up Hot Wings

Reviewed: Aug. 25, 2012
I found these to be very good. The texture & flavor of the wing after deep-frying were spot on. I wasn't quite sure what was meant on the cereal & brown sugar thing, so I just used Cap'n Crunch. The sauce: I tasted it after mixing & was a little sweet , so I added more hot sauce to balance it out (just my preference). I also baked once as directed & then poured more sauce on them & baked again for 10 more minutes. These are quite messy, so you will need a wet finger towel at the table. You also need more oil for frying them.

Easy Weeknight Beef Stroganoff

Reviewed: Sep. 13, 2012
We really liked this recipe & will use it again. I did tweak it though. After all, it is just a starter, not a finisher. LOL! I first off used only 3/4# of venison loins. While cooking them, I added about 1/4 tsp. California style garlic salt with parsley. I had button mushrooms in the fridge to use up, so I added about 6 of those, sliced, while sauteing the onions. Waited until right towards the end to add the garlic clove, so as not to burn & get bitter. When this was done, I tasted it & it still needed a little more of the California style garlic salt with parsley, so I added about 1/4 tsp. more. I also added about 1/2 tsp. coarse ground black pepper. I cooked my noodles in water with chicken bouillon in it for added flavor & then drained them & tossed them with about 2 Tbsp. butter. My husband doesn't like noodles, but he loved this!

Grandma's Creamy Ham Casserole

Reviewed: Aug. 29, 2012
I found this to be very good but colorless, & really needs something like carrots in it for texture & some color. Other wise, it's kinda plain. If you are the kind of person that likes plain, then you would like it as is. I also usually add butter with my potato chips on top to brown them. I left these in an extra 15 minutes, & they still weren't browned good.I think next time I make this, I will add cooked carrots, & not precook the noodles, so they still have some texture.

Sensational Sirloin Kabobs

Reviewed: Jun. 16, 2012
I make lots of kabobs, so thought I would try these today. For the most part, I liked them. I don't parboil my bell peppers though. I like them tender-crisp. I slow cook them so the veggies get done right with the meat. Very good flavored marinade! Thank you!

Deer Soup with Cream of Mushroom and Celery

Reviewed: Jan. 22, 2012
My husband & I live on deer meat & fish, so I thought this would be another way of using deer. I usually don't rate something bad, but am afraid I'm going to have to. It was very watery. The meats were very mealy & overcooked. Very bland & ugly soup. I added some black pepper * dried parsley in hopes of adding some flavor, but no luck. Sorry but I won' be making again. I have posted a picture.

Blackberry Pie I

Reviewed: Jun. 16, 2012
I made this today, & while it wasn't exactly how I usually make blackberry pie, it came out beautifully. I added about another half cup of sugar. I know blackberries take a lot of sugar. Think it could have stood more. I posted 2 pictures also. Thanks you!

Spanish Rice II

Creamy Pheasant and Noodle

Reviewed: Jan. 24, 2012
I make something similar to this often. My husband hunts pheasant. They are getting scarce now so I used Rock Cornish Game Hens this time. I left them whole, as I don't like the meat masserated from cooking so long. We like more texture. I cooked 4 hours & the meat was falling off the bone & the carrots were tender crisp & not mushy. I also sprinkled the tops of hens with Montreal chicken seasoning. Add so much more flavor. I really liked this recipe overall.

Easy Sausage Pizza by Johnsonville®

Reviewed: Mar. 22, 2013
I really liked this pizza, but made a few changes due to availability & preference. I made my own crust because our store doesn't have anything like that. I also added mushrooms, red onions, & pepperoni because we like it that way.Even if I hadn't of changed anything, it would have been wonderful.

Crabmeat and Asparagus Soup

Reviewed: Jan. 26, 2012
This is another recipe that should have never happened! It had too much oregano in it & leaves an aftertaste. If you are hungry, don't try this one as it is not a full bodied soup. Guess we will eat pizza today. Sorry! It also smells like ...well you don't want to know! Hubby wants it out of the house. It isn't pretty either.

Cheesy Game Time Sausage Dip

Reviewed: Mar. 22, 2013
Well, mine looks nothing like the other photo on here & I did it like it said. Very pretty picture though. I really liked this dip. I would leave the anise seed out next time & I like anise seed. I also melted the salsa with the cheese so the cheese didn't clump.
