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

Reviewed: Dec. 14, 2008
WOW! If you change the serving size to 18 you can use up one 8oz can of tomato sauce and you end up with about 2 cups of BBQ sauce.

Million Dollar Fudge

Reviewed: Dec. 8, 2008
Okay, long story short, I overcooked the syrup mixture and the fudge turned out dry. I was about to toss it when I decided to experiment with trying to fix it. I cut/crumbled the dry fudge into a plastic mixing bowl and added one 14oz can sweetened condensed milk (NOT EVAPORATED MILK) and microwaved until warm, about 45 seconds. Then I stirred, and stirred and stirred until it looked creamy and smooth. Poured it into a 9x13 pan and held my breath. I can not believe that this actually worked. The end result is pretty good, though I believe some of the chocolatyness was lost in the rescue attempt, the texture is great. Beats throwing it out. I have made this recipe before as per the directions and it is a good one, just don't overcook the syrup!

Whit's Chicken Enchiladas

Reviewed: Oct. 22, 2008
This is so good! I am officially tossing out my old recipe. We like red sauce so I added a small can of that over the top. Some people mentioned a problem with sogginess. The key is to bake uncovered until a medium golden brown. The leftovers (if there are any) are divine.

Indonesian Satay

Reviewed: Oct. 22, 2008
Delicious and authentic. My family couldn't get enough. I was lazy, so I just used whole chicken tenders and marinated them longer (1 hour). This worked great.

BUSH'S® White Bean Hummus

Reviewed: Oct. 22, 2008
Yum! I was looking for a way to use up some great northern beans and this was terrific. Even the kids loved it! I served it with warm pita bread. I used dried parsley, but next time I will use fresh. I can't wait to try it with the roasted red pepper variation.

No Bake Chocolate Oat Bars

Reviewed: Oct. 15, 2008
I realize that I am the definate minority here, but these just didn't do it for me. I followed the directions exactly. Like many other reviews have stated, the butter was way too much. I would probably decrease the peanut butter as well. Just a matter of taste.

Salisbury Steak

Reviewed: Oct. 15, 2008
My family really liked the steak part of the recipe, but the gravy wasn't exactly to our taste. We felt like the mustard powder was too strong. If I make this again, I think I'll use a different brown gravy recipe.

Buttery Soft Pretzels

Reviewed: Oct. 12, 2008
What an awesome discovery! They turned out perfectly. I did have to add about 1/2 cup of water to the dough, but other than that I followed the recipe exactly. The kids loved to make the "snakes" and I twisted them into pretzel shapes. I baked them up on parchment paper so they wouldn't stick. Great recipe!

Pork Sausages with Caramelized Onion Sauce

Reviewed: Oct. 12, 2008
This recipe was pretty good. Way too many onions for our family of six. I added pepper to the onions and once the sausages were browned I added them and the pan drippings to the onions and let them simmer together awhile. Served with mashed potatoes.

Buffalo Style Chicken Pizza

Reviewed: Sep. 9, 2008
Overall, a pretty good quick and easy recipe. I think it is important to choose a dressing and hot sauce you love, because that is where most of the flavor comes from. I left out the butter because a few of the reviews mentioned greasiness. I felt like it needed some crunch, next time I will coat my baking pan with olive oil to crisp the bottom crust.

Black Bean and Corn Quesadillas

So yummy, fast and easy! I made the recipe as presented and my family gobbled them up. My picky eater even loved them. Great for a quick stick to your ribs lunch.

Raspberry Streusel Muffins

Reviewed: Jul. 10, 2008
These were pretty good. Though I'm not sure they were worth the extra effort to make from scratch. I substituted 1 Tbl. of cornmeal for 1 Tbl. flour in the streusal topping. This gives a great texture to the streusel.

Slow Cooker Chicken and Dumplings

Reviewed: Jun. 1, 2008
What a pleasant surprise! I usually shy away form anything that starts out with "cream of whatever soup", but my entire family gobbled this up. I used the frozen chicken breasts that you can get at Costco. I am glad that I used water and not broth. I think the end result would have been too salty. I added three chopped carrots and a bit of garlic powder, parsley, pepper, and poultry seasoning. I only used one tube of biscuits and this was the right amount for us. I pressed the dough flat and cut into 6 pieces and it cooked perfectly in 1/2 and hour. This is so easy. Definately a keeper! Thanks!

Ham and Beans

Reviewed: Jun. 1, 2008
I guess it's a matter of personal taste, but no one in my family enjoyed it. I cut the sugar way down as suggested, but it still came out too sweet for us.

Mexican Corn on the Cob (Elote)

Reviewed: May 19, 2008
Surprisingly delicious. Even for those that are not regularly a fan of mayo. The cojita cheese was the ticket. I served these at a family dinner along with the Taquiera Style Tacos from this site. A fantastic combination. My brother in law is from Mexico and was so pleased with the corn. He had told us about the mayo with corn thing before and we all thought it sounded yucky. After reading the reviews I decided to give it a try. Wow, so glad I did! And my brother in law told me it was dead on to the way he ate it in Mexico. Awesome.

Taqueria Style Tacos - Carne Asada

Reviewed: May 19, 2008
Oh my! These are fantastic. I went to a mexican market and asked the butcher for his reccomendation on which cut of meat was best for Carne Asada. I don't speak spanish so I can't exactly tell you what I ended up with, but it was fantastic. If you have a market like this by you, it is totally worth the effort. I decreased the salt a bit after reading the reviews. I grilled these up and then sliced them to serve. Amazing! The relish is wonderful. The salsa is totally worth the effort. I only added one of the jalepenos to keep the heat down. Still a bit too hot for the kids though. The salsa makes a ton. (about a pint) I am going to store it so that I won't have to make it again next time. And I plan on making these again and again. My husband is already planning barbecues with friends, just as an excuse to have these again. I served it with the Mexican Corn on the Cob from this site. They compliment each other perfectly!

Black Bean and Corn Salad II

Reviewed: Feb. 10, 2008
So fresh tasting and fantastic. The lime dressing helps the salad taste light. A great meal by itself or the perfect side for chicken or fish on the grill.

Kalua Pig in a Slow Cooker

Reviewed: Jan. 31, 2008
This is so delicious. I have made this four times in the past month. I used Himalayan Pink Sea Salt and it turned out fine. You really can't mess this one up. So simple and so little prep time. Perfect!

Warm Greek Pita Sandwiches With Turkey and Cucumber-Yogurt Sauce

Reviewed: Jan. 31, 2008
This recipe was just okay. Next time I would use less oregano and add a splash of lemon to brighten it up a bit. The sauce was, as my husband put it "dead on delicious" This is a good recipe to use up all your leftover turkey in a new and healthful way.
