BUSH'S® Spicy Black Bean Fritters with Cilantro Ranch Dip

Reviewed: Feb. 19, 2009
I made this recipe twice. The first time I follow the directions exactly and they were way too hot for my personal taste. We had friends over to try them and they, liking hot and spicy food, said the fritters were not too hot at all. They said the fritters weren't anthing special, a bit too greasy, and definitely have lots of napkins handy but"...I guess, okay." Their feeling was they are too labor entensive for what you end up with. The second time I made them, I toned down the heat and didn't deep fry them. I upped the ratio of cornmeal to flour and I used some whole wheat flour. To keep the original idea of the spiciness, I did add some taco mix seasoning; enough so you could tell it was definitely there. I didn't deep fry them; I fried them much the way you would cook a crabcake. I removed them from the skillet, placed them on a cookie sheet, covered and baked them for 20 minutes. During the last 5 minutes of cooking, I sprinkled on half of them some shredded pepper jack cheese. I made the Cilantro Dip pretty much like the recipe but for the hot seasonings and salt and I added a little taco seasoning. I was after the taste, just not the heat. My guests said the second batch were okay but they definitely preferred the heat. They liked the texture of the second set and they were less greasy. And I think I preferred the ones with the pepper jack cheese on them. We decided they were okay but, nothing to brag about.

Slow Cooker Chicken Taco Soup

Reviewed: Feb. 11, 2009
This wasn't at all bad. The only thing I did differently is I added more onion and some minced garlic. When I served it up, I sprinkled each serving with a dollop of sour cream, sliced green onions and some sliced olived. Iserved the soup with Nacho Tortila Chips and cheese, salsa and bean dips. We all enjoyed the soup and we will definitely have it again. Good Job!!

Italian Chicken Bow Tie Pasta

Reviewed: Feb. 10, 2009
I read through the reviews and almost all sggested or added extras. So, I started with the basic here and added sauteed, mushrooms, onions, red and green bell pepper, garlic and basil. And then went on with the directions. Oh, I left out the can of tomatoes and put in a can of taomato sauce. With the additions, it was great. We will difinitely be having this one again. It is basic enough taht a whole list of extras can be added to personalize it to suit most any family.

Raspberry Fudge Brownies

Reviewed: Feb. 9, 2009
For the top I did a drizzle of melted Raspberry chocolate, like Petit Fours, across the tops of the brownies. They are were so pretty. I did as was suggested and rinsed my knife between cuts, and they came out with no jagged edges. The Raspberry topping is almost framed by the dark chocolate. But, I didn't cut them in triangles. I cut them in 1/4 inch slices, 4-inches wide and then layed them on a dessert plate that I had drizzled with the melted Raspberry Chocolate. The dessert plates I used were white with pink ribbons and light and dark pink tiny roses around the outside. The presentation was stunning. Thank you, for such a beautiful dessert. This is going in my recipe file under, Impressors. Thats where I put my, "Blow your socks off" recipes.

Fruity Pork Chops

Reviewed: Feb. 8, 2009
My family definitely wants to add this one to our recipe box. I made a lot more than just 4 chops so, had to more than double the ingredients and I added a ittle more orange zest. It was great. I served it with fruited rice and a salad with orange sections and slivered almonds and everyone enjoyed dinner.

Baked Lemon Chicken

Reviewed: Feb. 8, 2009
This Chicken was great. I covered my chicken with Kellogg's corn Flake Crumbs instead of the bread crumbs and I added an egg to the mixture I dipped the chicken. The lemon flavor wasn't over-powering, just enough to say, "WOW, like that lemon flavor." I also make a lemon butter sauce to be served with the chicken. This one I highly recommend.
