Old Charleston Style Shrimp and Grits

Reviewed: Mar. 10, 2013
Outstanding! My only suggestion is to cook the sausages whole first, then slice them. The bacon adds a lot of flavor. I had cooked shrimp in my fridge so I used that. Also, I used 5 minute grits (Shhhh, don't tell anyone!) I feel the roux is unnecessary and the sausage/ shrimp mixture is fine on it's own. This could be served to guests. Very pretty and delicious!

White Bean Dip

Reviewed: Aug. 22, 2012
Wow. Wasn't expecting to love this! Used Northern Beans, a little more than 1/3 cup oil, it wasn't blending well, and only 1 lemon. Didn't have cilantro so I used 2 Tablespoons of dried parsley and a small palmful of cajun seasoning probably about 1 T). I love cilantro and will buy it for next time. I'm sure it will be delicious!

Slow Cooker Pulled Pork

Reviewed: Jul. 9, 2012
I give 5 stars when the guests rave, the kids love it and people are still talking the next day! So moist and flavorful! I used a 10lb Boston Butt Pork Shoulder ($30). It barely fit in my 6qt crock pot. I filled it with Root Beer almost to the top. I was afraid it would spill over. Cook 8 hours total on high (fat side down, flip after 4 hours so fat is on top). Drain the root beer, scrape the fat off the top, then shredded the meat, add almost a bottle of Sweet Baby Rays Brown Sugar and Hickory Sauce, let it sit on warm until ready to eat. This made enough to serve a group of 35 people (with a few burgers and hotdogs as well). Thank you for sharing this great recipe!

Grilled Salmon I

Reviewed: Apr. 7, 2012
This is an easy and delicious recipe! I substituted a huge clove of garlic in place of the garlic powder but followed the recipe otherwise. It took 30 minutes on the grill at about 400 degrees. I used a cedar plank on the grill - no flipping and the skin comes off! Thanks for sharing!

Chicken and Biscuit Casserole

Reviewed: Feb. 19, 2012
The flavor was outstanding! This is a perfect weeknight meal! I think the homemade biscuits are an unnecessary step though. I used a tube of refrigerated biscuits instead. Thanks for a great recipe!

Boudreaux's Zydeco Stomp Gumbo

Reviewed: Sep. 13, 2011
I swore I would follow the recipe exactly, right down to the cornbread and beer! But I felt that the amount of meat needed to be increased for all the broth. I used a whole pack of chicken tenderloins (1 1/2 lbs) and 2 packs of Andouille sausages (2 lbs), kept shrimp at 1 lb. It was excellent but I do think that 3 qts of broth is still too much. The flavor was fabulous! I cheated and used boil in the bag rice - I was serving 10 people! This made a VERY large amount. I would say it serves 16 at least. The key is the roux, stir for 30 minutes. You want it to be the color of peanut butter. Get your jar out and compare! Definitely worth the work! I would make this again!

Tangy Slow Cooker Pork Roast

Reviewed: Mar. 8, 2011
Very good. I followed the recipe as closely as possible. I used 3 cloves of garlic (crushed), dark brown sugar and did not use my crock pot. I browned the roast in a dutch oven, browned the onions, and then added the ingredients to it. It cooked for 2 hours covered on low, then I cut it into 4 pieces and cooked another 1/2 hour uncovered. The sauce wasn't thick but it was flavorful. I shredded the leftovers and we had sandwiches the next day. Will make again!

Orange Chicken

Reviewed: Feb. 22, 2011
This was really good! I didn't substitute anything! The herb stuffing added the flavor and the crunch! I pounded the stuffing to about the size of panko. You need to really press the stuffing onto the chicken and add a little more to the top after you flip it in the butter. Next time I will add some garlic to the stuffing. Before serving, I squeezed a bit of orange over the chicken. The orange was subtle. I used the zest of one large orange- which amounted to about a tablespoon. I'll definitely make this again!

Easy Meatloaf

Reviewed: Feb. 10, 2011
This was really good! It's a quick and basic recipe. I did not saute my onions, as usual, but made sure they were chopped very fine (picky kids). The raw onions add more flavor to the meat. Instead of salt and pepper, I used a teaspoon of McCormicks steak seasoning. The sauce on top added a lot of flavor!

Flatlander Chili

Reviewed: Jan. 19, 2011
This is a great recipe! I adjusted it for 15 people and only substituted 3 crushed garlic cloves for the powder. Also the vegetables and garlic were sauteed with the meat. Everything was put in a crockpot and cooked on low for 9 hours. I think the tomato juice was what made it so good. I did not add anything to thicken it. I will definitely make this again!

Sausage Pinwheels

Reviewed: Jan. 10, 2011
These were a big hit as an appetizer. I made two batches, each using 2 1/2 links of Johnsonville Sweet Italian sausage, casings removed. For the first, only sausage was used, I forgot about the chives. The second had 1/2 cup of sharp cheddar and a big pinch of red pepper flakes. Both were delicious, but I heard more comments about the one with "the kick!" I made 2 "loaves" early in the day, wrapped both in foil and refrigerated before cutting. Cooking time took 20 minutes. Also, I was able to cut each roll into more than 12 pieces. The hardest thing about this recipe is getting the dough out of the can without mutilating it!!

Peppered Shrimp Alfredo

Reviewed: Dec. 31, 2010
This is a dinner party quality recipe! My guests LOVED it! Because of my location, I had to use chicken instead of shrimp and used one box of fettuccine. But otherwise, I followed the recipe exactly. It was outstanding! The cream (heavy whipping cream) is a key ingredient, don't leave it out or substitute. I can't wait to make it with shrimp! Thanks for a great recipe!

Creamiest Rice Pudding

Reviewed: Nov. 14, 2010
I followed the recipe exactly. I used whole milk and simmered for 70 minutes. It would have been fine at 60 minutes but I wanted it a little thicker. Also, I followed the advice from other reviews and let the egg mixture sit at room temperature while the rice was cooking. Cinnamon and raisins were added at the end before chilling. Thanks for a great recipe!

Pesto Sauce

Reviewed: Aug. 30, 2010
This was a very good, quick recipe. I followed it pretty much exact using 2/3 cups of basil tightly packed (before chopping), reduced salt to 1/4 teaspoon and used one large garlic clove, grated parm cheese (didn't have fresh on hand). This recipe yields about 1/2 cup of pesto- enough to toss with pasta or spread on some chicken breasts! Yum! Thanks for the recipe!

Laura's Unbelievable Chicken and Pasta

Reviewed: Jun. 29, 2010
This was really good! I followed the recipe exactly except that I added sauteed onions, zucchini, red pepper and fresh diced tomato to the mixture after the spinach and cream cheese were added (only to sneak in veggies). The kids loved it! I think it would be fantastic with shrimp too! Great recipe!

Slow-Cooker Chicken Tortilla Soup

Reviewed: Feb. 23, 2010
This was delicious! I gave it 5 stars because my husband and kids ate it and even ate the leftovers the next day! I was worried this wouldn't taste right because I didn't have all the ingredients on hand, but the flavor was outstanding. I think it was because of the enchilada sauce! I did not cook the chicken beforehand. I used 6 chicken breasts and put them in the crockpot with all the ingredients piled on. Another recipe called for hominy, so I used 1/2 c since I didn't have corn. Instead of the tomatoes I used 2 cans of enchilada sauce, a large box of broth (6c) and used crushed tortilla chips and cheddar cheese on top. It needed 5 hours on HIGH for the chicken to break apart. Thanks for a great recipe!!

Oven Baked Jambalaya

Reviewed: Jan. 5, 2010
Perfect as is! The proportions are 100% accurate. I added chopped bacon at the end. I was worried about the cooked shrimp cooking again for so long, but it worked!! I served this to company, the presentation was beautiful and everyone went back for seconds and thirds! Cook in a huge roasting pan (the one you use for a turkey)! Thank you for a great recipe!

Grilled Portobello Mushrooms

Reviewed: Mar. 18, 2009
This was excellent! I let the mixture marinate while I was preparing the rest of the meal. I added a sprinkle of parmesan to the mixture. Everyone loved it!

Jalapeno Popper Spread

Reviewed: Feb. 4, 2008
Excellent! I followed the recipe exactly except doubled the jalapenos (and I would definitely do that again.) Grated parmesan cheese tasted great and made it easy to dip. I served it with Fritos and tortillas. This was a hit and many people asked for the recipe!
