Boilermaker Tailgate Chili

Reviewed: Jan. 18, 2015
Dynamic, flavorful chili! Spicy without the "burn your lips off" factor. I simplified a little by getting pre-diced celery, onion and tri-colored bell mix from my market. I also used a 28 oz. Can of Ro-tel diced tomatoes with green chili (Mild) and two 14 oz cans of diced tomatoes with lime and cilantro. I also used only 1 can of mild chili beans and 1 can spicy chili beans (because we tend to like meaty instead of beany chili). Following the advice of others, I cooked 5 strips of bacon until crispy, then cooked veggies in that. Transferred them to a bowl while I browned the ground beef and sausage. Then I mixed the crumbled bacon, veggies and meat together in my crock pot. I cooked it on low for 2:30 hours, then let it rest until cool, refrigerates until morning, then cooked on low in crock pot for 4 more hours....wow and yum! DH says it's perfect. Will be using for a chili "cook off" party next week, for sure!

Garlic Chicken

Reviewed: Aug. 8, 2013
Kidlets and DH LOVED it! To be honest, I did use more garlic than listed...I used 2 T. minced garlic that I blended with the olive oil (but my family LOVES Garlic). The smell was fantastic and the taste was phenomenal! It is definitely a keeper!

Honey Mustard Grilled Chicken

Reviewed: Sep. 10, 2009
Very easy to make which gets extra points from me on a busy school/work night. Followed the recipe exactly, except used chicken tenders on the Forman Indoor/Outdoor Grill. Even the picky 7 year old son loved it. Thanks for sharing.

Baked Cranberry Sauce

Reviewed: Aug. 16, 2009
So easy and delicious. I substituted Splenda for Sugar and 1/3 c. apple juice + 1 oz. cherry brandy (kirchwasser) for the brandy. AND I made it the night before Thanksgiving. It was the perfect blend of tart and sweet.

Meaty Thick Man Chili

Reviewed: Aug. 16, 2009
The first time I made it, it was really too thick for me, so I changed it a bit. My version is still thick but as thick as the original; I've also changed this recipe to a lower fat version using 3 lbs. ground turkey (99% fat free). I seasoned the turkey with Worcestershire sauce, granulated beef boullion, Complete Seasoning, and my mother-in-law's sofrito. Instead of using water, I used beef broth. I also used 2 cans of chili beans in medium sauce, 2 cans of fire-roasted tomatoes with 1 can of tomato sauce. Because I have young children who do not like spice, I cut the chili powder back to 1/4 c. I added Tabasco to my personal bowl to increase the heat. Fairly Quick and easy for a weeknight supper. If you want it last a couple of days, serve it over a 1/4 cup of Uncle Ben's Microwavable Pouch - type rice. Delicious!

Amazing Pork Tenderloin in the Slow Cooker

Reviewed: Mar. 9, 2008
Absolutely fantastic. DH doesn't usually like meat cooked in the crockpot because, he says, it comes out bland, but not in this case! I substituted beef broth for water, which just seemed right with the red wine. Also, I cut the soy sauce in half and added the same amount of Worcestershire sauce. I also cut garlic cloves into the port and rubbed the outside with sofrito and Goya Sazon. I used a Cabernet Sauvingon on a previous reviewer's suggestion. I'm not a red wine person, but this dish was fantastic! Will make over and over again.

Caramel Apple Cheesecake

Reviewed: Dec. 24, 2007
Wonderful light-tasting cheesecake. After reading several reviews saying they skipped the topping, I decided to mix the caramel syrup in with the apple topping as well as added a sprinkle of cinnamon and nutmeg. Put all the apples in a 9" springform with a self-made cinnamon graham cracker crust. To serve, I just drizzled a bit of the caramel syrup over the top.

Brownie Caramel Cheesecake

Reviewed: Dec. 24, 2007
Too dense and heavy for my taste, but DD LOVED IT! If I make again, I will bake brownie a bit longer and maybe use a 9" square pan instead of a round with 2 x cheesecake filling for more balance.

No Knead Refrigerator Rolls

Reviewed: Dec. 8, 2004
This is the first bread recipe I tried with success! I used it on Thanksgiving and again a week later. My daughter loved helping assemble the ingredients and punching the dough down and I swear my husband burned his fingers because he couldn't wait until they cooled to eat them. Will use again and again and again

Bahamian Mahi Mahi

Reviewed: Dec. 7, 2004
I put this to marinade at 11 and cooked it at 4. "No Taste" as my husband said. I found it palatable when I pressed the fish into the lemon slice and then dipped it in tartar sauce - which I only had for the kids' fish sticks. Admittedly, I did use white rum, since it was all I had on hand, and, perhaps, it would have made a difference; I don't know. I will not be making this again. It was VERY easy, but without taste, it's just not worth it.

Salsa Cube Steaks

Reviewed: May 3, 2004
VERY GOOD! Didn't add any water...the salsa provided plenty of liquid. Hubby gave it the thumbs up, which means it's a keeper/add-it-to-the-recipe-book-good. Even my picky 5 year old thanked me for "this yummy food". Just an additional note. The second time I made this dish, I misestimated the amount of cubed steak I had. I didn't have enough for the whole family! So I added boneless, skinless chicken breast to the pan and covered it as instructed. Delicious! So this recipe works with chicken also! Recommend it highly. Medium salsa seemed light on this - the kids didn't mention any spice. MaryA.

Turkey Brine

Reviewed: Nov. 27, 2003
Even without the Savory, which I couldn't find, this made my turkey come out full of flavor and fall off the bone perfect! I am a convert. I am brining my turkeys from now on!1

Carol's Arroz Con Pollo

Reviewed: Oct. 7, 2003
Good recipe, but it's better if you cook the chicken with the onions and leave the chicken in while adding the rice, etc. This allows the chicken to absorb the flavors of the other ingredients.
