Best Marinara Sauce Yet
Absolutely fabulous!!! And so easy to make. Try it and you will never buy store bought sauce again and it freezes well for a quick easy meal. A few changes I made was using dice tomatoes because I had them on hand, added more garlic and some basil. Thank you Jackie for an awesome recipe!!!

Spanish Rice II
This is the best rice I have ever made. However, I took some suggestions from other reviewers and made the following changes. I used bacon grease instead of oil. Be sure you use long grain rice such as Uncle Ben's. Using a 12 inch skillet saute garlic, onion and the green pepper for just a minute then add rice and continue sauteing until the rice is well browned. Substitute chicken broth for the water. The recipe does not specify the brand of tomatoes but use Rotel brand which is 10 ounces. If you use regular diced tomatoes they are 15 ounces which probably contributed to some reviewers having soggy rice. Plus Rotel tomatoes add to the spicy flavor of this recipe. Chili powders vary a lot in hotness. I used a mexican chili powder and added 1/2 teaspoon of ground cumin. The rice was perfectly spicy for us but would probably have been too spicy for children or even some adults. This recipe would make a wonderful and tasty one dish meal by simply added shredded chicken, ground beef, sausage of meat of your choice to it. Tonight I'm trying it with ground beef and will substitute beef broth for the chicken broth.

The Ultimate Burger Topping
Wow, this got rave reviews from the entire family. Very tasty and it also would be great on a baked potato or as a dip. The only thing I changed was to saute the onion and garlic in the bacon drippings instead of olive oil. Definitely will make this again but will have to make more of it. In fact, everyone wanted to just eat it with a spoon!!!
