Cream Cheese Jalapeno Hamburgers

Reviewed: Aug. 7, 2007
we really enjoyed this recipe. i love cream cheese in everything. i made a few (wonderful) changes. the biggest, and my favorite, was to add canned black beans (about 1/2 can) to the meat mixture. i wanted a little more flavor and moisture, and the beans made the meat so moist and extra meaty, if that's possible. i also used much less jalapeno and also added fresh tomato to the cream cheese mixture. cooked these under the broiler and they were awesome. my boyfriend went back for seconds.

Fusion Chili

Reviewed: Mar. 5, 2009
honestly i would say 3 1/2 stars, but that's not an option! this is a very good meal, but it lacks the "chili" feel. it's decidley italian in flavor, except for the chilies. I thought there was too much sausage and would have liked peppers and more beans. Really enjoyed it over rice, but the flavor was more italian then anything. We made this for company, and the whole (giant) pot was gone by the time the night was over, so it was a hit though!

A Simply Perfect Roast Turkey

Reviewed: Jun. 8, 2008
this gets 5 stars because of how easy this is, especially for the first time turkey roaster, like me. my friends and i decided to have an impromptu thanksgiving meal on the hottest day so far this year, and i had to cook the turkey. the bird was so moist and perfectly browned when it was done. i stuffed it with my mom's sausage stuffing and sewed it shut. rubbed it with lots of butter and put butter under the skin between the breast like some other reviewers did. basted every half hour and it took 5 1/2 hour for a 19lb bird. the only thing i did a little differently was to cover the drumsticks for the first hour so they didn't overcook ( my mom said to do that, lol) oh, and i only cooked to 165 degrees and let it carryover for a half an hour. it was perfect. not too dry and cooked all the way through, even the stuffing.this really is a fool-proof method to cook a turkey. use this if you've never cooked a turkey, or if you've never cooked a good turkey. i promise it will come through for you.

North Carolina-Style Pulled Pork

Reviewed: Feb. 8, 2008
made this for the superbowl (go giants!) and it was perfect. cooked it in a slowcooker so we added the hickory liquid smoke. upped the brown sugar a little bit. used the full 2 cups of vinegar. if you're craving the Carolina experience of a vinegar sauce, use the full two cups!

Butternut Squash Soup

Reviewed: Nov. 13, 2007
this is really fabulous! I halved the cream cheese, which was plenty. The only addition i made was a little white wine before blending the hot soup. It "lifts" the flavors a bit, i thought. Also, the 6 cups of squash turned out to be 3 pounds almost exactly after i roasted and cubed it. We will be adding this to our Thanksgiving menu.

Local Kine Wontons

Reviewed: Oct. 25, 2007
absolutley yummy. we can eat dozens! they are really great fried in the oil(my favorite way)but also bake up quite well in mini-muffin pans. Just press the wonton wrapper into the wells in the pan and spoon in the filling and bake for 10 mins or so. great appetizer when done that way. i actually made them for thanksgiving last year, and they were a hit.

Mushroom Blue Cheese Turkey Burgers

Reviewed: Feb. 16, 2009
the concept was very good, but we switched it up a bit. pre-cooked the mushroom and onions to carmelize them a bit, and also mixed blue cheese into the meat mixture instead of on top. was a little heavy handed with the blue cheese. served them on chibatta bread to soak up the juices. hubby though they were yumm-o, i though they were a little blue cheesey. i think if you looove blue cheese, add it right in with a heavy hand. if not, add to the top of the burger as called for so it's not so pungent!

Guacamole

Reviewed: Jun. 24, 2008
perfect! sooo yummy :) i didn't really measure much, just eyeballed the ingredients. oh, used a 1/2 can of rotell tomatoes w/hot peppers in it instead of tomatoes. with the whole salmonella thing going on now, just seemed safer!

Asparagus Roll-Ups

Reviewed: Oct. 25, 2007
these were pretty good. the bacon was a little overpowering, so i think i'll leave that out next time. the one other thing i'd do differently is to add more than one spear per roll. the were too "dainty". and don't overcook the asparagus, or they will be very limp coming out of the over. blanch for just a min or two. and chill in cold water before baking.

Honey Walnut Shrimp

Reviewed: Mar. 6, 2007
this was wonderful! my boyfriend was so excited to come home to this meal. I used the candied walnuts you can buy in the snack section of the grocery store instead of making my own.we doubled the sauce recipe, and its really good over rice too! (i also made the Local Kine Wontons from this site, which were excellent!)

Best Peanut Butter Cookies Ever

Reviewed: Jun. 5, 2011
these were quite good! i used natural peanut butter, and swapped out some of the white sugar for brown (about 1/4 cup worth). i think that made them even better. they were a bit greasy though, and the dough was a bit of a pain to work with. oh, and i added some pb/choc swirl chips too!

Rosemary Ranch Chicken Kabobs

Reviewed: Jun. 30, 2010
this is yummy! i heated up the extra marinade and added a tablespoon of butter , a few splashes of milk, and about 1/4 cup of sour cream to it without boiling to make a quick sauce to go over rice.

No Roll Sugar Cookies

Reviewed: Dec. 3, 2007
these were soooo good! i was looking for a macadamia nut cookie, without any other add-ins, which i couldn't find. so i ended up making these and adding some chopped unsalted macadamia nuts. the cookie is perfect and melt in your mouth good and the nuts added a nice crunch. **made these again for chrismtas minus the macadamia nuts. they look so pretty when you roll the balls in colored sugar before you flatten and bake them! the taste is perfect, light, airy, buttery and good.
