Sarge's EZ Pulled Pork BBQ

Reviewed: Jun. 24, 2010
Oh yeah! Used the coffee and broth (and just a touch of Liquid Smoke) and the poker party gang was too busy munching and licking fingers to say anything but "MMMmmmmMMMMM!" Gave 'em their choice of Sweet Baby Ray's or my own N. Carolina style sauce and they couldn't stop smacking. Took the time to pull a lot of the fat off the roast after it cooked, but that was the toughest part of the whole recipe. Shredded/chopped it and put it back in the crock pot on warm with a little of the 'jus' and everyone served themselves when ready. Easy, delicious and pleased the whole group. Thanks, Sarge, from an old Navy Chief! =)

Hong Kong Sweet and Sour Pork

Reviewed: Mar. 10, 2012
I generally try not to rate a recipe unless I've followed it to the letter, but like so many others, finding potato flour/starch where I live is either impossible or way too pricey. I used corn starch for the marinade and the sauce, and rice flour to coat the pork, but followed the rest as written and WHAT an excellent dish! It does take a little work to put together, but nothing most any other meal wouldn't also take. I've seen the double fry method used in a lot of Asian recipes, and I don't know what the exact trick is, but it sure makes for the light and crispy coating that can be so illusive, so it's worth the extra dip in oil (especially peanut oil). VERY good S&S; hubby went back for seconds (RARE) and I'll be making it again (and again, & again...)

Easy Slow Cooker French Dip

Reviewed: Mar. 5, 2010
What a hit! I've made this several times now, used a variety of roasts or cuts and they're all good. The poker team loves it! I always use Guinness for that rich flavor. I saute some peppers and onions one the side for those that want it and melt provolone on the rolls. Put out lots of napkins and watch the feed fest!! Really good with wasabi mayo, too!

Restaurant-Style Buffalo Chicken Wings

Reviewed: Feb. 2, 2013
A rose by any other name!! Crispy without being breaded. I used Louisiana Wing Sauce (Franks is more vinegar-y to me) with the butter and they are just the right heat for a pot luck. I just put hotter sauce on the side for the sadists, like me. :) Call 'em whatever you want, Buffalo, these are really really good. I did a trial run for Superbowl tomorrow and the OM has eaten almost half already.

Soft Giant Pretzels

Reviewed: Nov. 15, 2010
Easy, and so good! I made three batches for a get together and the dough was consistent each batch. Divided each batch into 12 smaller pretz and set out melted garlic butter, nacho type cheese and mustard. Very well recvd, and I know I'll be making these a lot more often. Looking forward to trying them stuffed with jackcheese and jalepenos!

Sweet and Oh So Spicy Kielbasa

Reviewed: Jul. 21, 2013
Only problem with this recipe? Not enough! Quite the hit at a recent potluck. I toned down the heat just a little for that, but as is, this is excellent. Second time I made it, I didn't have maraschino's or grape jelly, but I did have cherry jelly and chopped up a handful of fresh cherries. (Cmon. I live in Washington. People look at you suspiciously if you buy maraschino's...) Just as savory sweet. Also very good with meatballs, and there's actually enough sauce to handle the 2 pounds of Kielbasa and a couple dozen meatballs as an appy. With just the kielbasa, this would be a great meal over rice with a fresh salad on the side. Thanks, abrusky!

Simple Scones

Reviewed: Jun. 29, 2013
Wow. I'm not familiar with how scones are supposed to taste, but I needed something fairly quick so I used my processor as suggested by one reviewer to whip these up. From the time I started collecting ingredients to when we were eating them was less than 45 minutes. I added orange zest and craisens, then drizzled with a little powdered sugar/oj glaze and they were wonderful. Not too syrupy sweet, crumbly but bisquit-like: Just a really good treat. Will DEFINITELY be making these more often, and can't wait to try different flavor combo's... BTW: I only had salted butter on hand so I halved the salt and they turned out great. Also, I put them on parchment paper and baked them on my pizza stone. Perfect!

Kielbasa Appetizers

Reviewed: Jun. 29, 2009
Wow! I needed some quick munchies for an impromptu poker game, and these were just the ticket. I used a Guinness and Sweet Baby Ray's, and when the kielbasa was gone (in minutes!) the guys were scooping up the thick sauce with club crackers. I made a pound for four of us, and I only got to taste one piece! Definitely worth a repeat, but I'll keep more kielbasa on hand in the future!!

Zesty Slow Cooker Chicken Barbecue

Reviewed: Mar. 29, 2009
Very, very good! I used KC Masterpiece Sauce and Berensteins Cheese Fantastico Italian. Served it on toasted sun-dried tomato rolls with sliced tomatoes, chopped romaine and pepperoncini's. Really a hit! As pictured, shredding after a few hours takes care of the soupiness. I added thinly sliced onions only because we love 'em in this sort of recipe, but would still be great without them if you're not an onion lover. Easy and really tasty. Will definitely do this again (and again...)
