Ground Beef Enchiladas

Reviewed: Aug. 24, 2010
I JUST made these and they're AMAZING. I followed the recipe near-exactly, save that I accidentally grabbed diced green chiles instead of jalapenos so that's what I added instead. I also used the tiny flour tortillas cuz thats all I could find - and I made 10-12 mini enchiladas out of the mixture, and still had leftover meat and cheesey goodness to pour on top of them. baked 'em 23 minutes and let 'em sit for a few more out of the oven - they're AMAZING. I could definitely see where the jalapenos would spice them up a bit more, and will try that next time (and I will read the label on the can a bit closer!). thanks for a fantastic and surprisingly easy recipe for enchiladas - this one's a keeper!!

Barbecued Beef

Reviewed: Aug. 4, 2010
this was FANTASTIC. I didnt follow the measurements exactly, and added things to-taste, but wow-ee deelicious! I slow-cooked it together 8 hours while I was at work, then shredded the roast while pulling out all the fat. I also used a gravy separator to get the fat out of the sauce. Poured it all back into the pot for another hour, served w/mashed potatoes and broccoli. AMAZING leftover, too! Will be making this again!

Grilled Asian Chicken

Reviewed: Feb. 7, 2010
this was deeeelicious! we're buried under 2'+ of snow right now, and I was looking for something a little more interesting to make than soup. this fit the bill perfectly, and while we didn't get to grill it, it turned out fantastically well sauteed. I am very much looking forward to making this again, marinating it a bit longer (I did aprx 20 mins while other things were cooking) and grilling it on our charcoal grill. the only variation otherwise that I took was mincing the garlic and ginger together to add to the sauce. mm mm mm!

Oven Pot Roast

Reviewed: Nov. 5, 2009
OH MY GOSH. I just made this, it was my very first pot roast evar, and it turned out AMAZINGLY GOOD. The only change I made ingredient-wise was to stir in a can of beef consumme instead of the wine, as was suggested on here. I browned the meat in a cast iron skillet, added everything else to the skillet and covered it in foil for 2 hours at 325. As per suggested on here in other comments, I added some baby red potatoes and chopped carrots in at the 1-hour-left mark, basted the meat, and cranked it up to 350 for that last hour. The meat was fall-apart good when everything was done - I didn't even need a knife!! AMAZING recipe. Thank you so much! I need not look anywhere else for a pot roast how-to!

Grandma Johnson's Scones

Reviewed: Feb. 24, 2008
These scones were a huge hit! I added the zest of one lemon and a cup of dried blueberries for flavor, but kept the recipe the same otherwise. It took my oven 13.5 minutes to reach scone perfection, and they're delicious hot out of the oven AND the next morning. Next time I make these [and there WILL be a next time - and many more!] I'll be shaping the dough into a long "log" and slicing that into smaller pieces, as I found the scones cut from a round, pizza-pie-style, were very large and half of that size would be plenty for a single serving. FANTASTIC recipe overall - I can't wait to make them again!

Guacamole

Reviewed: Feb. 11, 2008
this was spot-on FANTASTIC. a little labor intensive w/all the chopping involved, but worth it in the end. we made this for a super bowl party this year, and the entire bowl was gone by the end of the game! [one batch kept 6 people very happy the whole game!]

Tuna Noodle Casserole

Reviewed: Jan. 31, 2008
I'm not usually a canned tuna kinda gal, but this recipe worked out fantastically and the fishy taste isn't present at all! I made this the other night and my boyfriend ate half the 8x8" pan himself! The only changes I made were I did not include the last 3 ingredients listed [I didn't have two of them & don't like to add salt if I can help it], and once I had the mixture in the pan I sprinkled it w/more cheddar cheese and topped it off with some French's fried onions. It turned out FANTASTICALLY and was gone by lunchtime the next day ;) Oh! And I only had cream of celery soup, and that worked out just fine, too. Great for wintertime comfort food!
