Becky's Easy Cilantro Lime Rice

Reviewed: Sep. 3, 2010
Fresh and flavorful recipe! I was looking for a rice dish using lime and cilantro to give a kick to our usual side of plain rice and this recipe fit the bill. I made it just as stated, except I used fresh mild green chilis, omitted the bouillon to avoid MSG, and just added some salt to substitute. I served it with homemade steak and black bean tostadas and fresh salsa, lettuce, and tomato from the garden. I did put the cilantro in the blender because I didn't see the edit in the reviews, and it turned out great. The rice stayed white mixed with green flecks. Maybe because I added the cilantro mix after most of the liquid had been absorbed by the rice, just before serving, by oversight. I made this recipe a second time to serve a chicken dish made with a Southwest sauce and tortilla strips. I wanted the chicken flavor that the bouillon in the original recipe would provide but again, wanted to avoid the preservatives and MSG so I used some defrosted chicken broth from my freezer in place of the water and added a bit of salt. Thank you BCOLLINS1, we love this recipe!

Apple Crisp III

Reviewed: Oct. 20, 2009
This is an excellent recipe! I had a lot of apples to use up from my father's apple trees and I needed to use them quickly. I made multiple batches of this recipe because we enjoyed it so much AND it is so quick and easy to make that my 6 year old and 9 year old sons did a couple batches themselves. Modifications: I used closer to 5 cups of apples. YOU CAN EASILY USE LESS SUGAR, even with an increase in apples! I also made this a few times substituting honey for part of the sugar.

Seven Layer Taco Dip

Reviewed: Aug. 25, 2009
This was so delicious!! I was skeptical if it would be really tasty or not, because it seemed so fast and simple. It is not too good to be true! It is EASY, FAST, and DELICIOUS! I'm bringing this to the next cook-out. Just a tip, we use authentic, thin Mexican tortilla chips made at a local Hispanic bakery. They are too thin for this hearty dip. Go for the sturdy grocery store tortilla chips!

South African Yellow Rice

Reviewed: Nov. 19, 2007
Super Delicious! So glad I tried this recipe! I used Sucanat instead of sugar, in the same qty listed. I also used some vegetable broth for some of the water and added a handful of cashew nuts. Yum! This will be on our table again!
