Cranberry and Cilantro Quinoa Salad

Reviewed: Jul. 11, 2011
Whoever came up with this combination of ingredients is pure genius. I halved the recipe to try it and now I wish I would have made the whole recipe. This is a flavor explosion in your mouth. Every bite tastes different. Next time, I'm going to add more almonds and craisins. Paired this with the "pretty chicken" also from this site.

Fast and Simple Salsa

Reviewed: Apr. 13, 2011
Fast and simple is an under statement here. This salsa is awesome. It is the wrong time of the year in St. Louis for home grown tomatoes so I used a can of no salt diced tomatoes and a can of RoTel tomatoes with green chile peppers. Also threw is a few chopped jalapeno peppers. I was worried about the vinegar but not any more. Boy is this spicy. Goes great on top of my black bean veggie burgers, chicken and fish.

Onion Soup Mix

Reviewed: Nov. 9, 2010
I would rate this recipe a 10 if I could. This tastes like the envelope of dry onion soup mix only better. It has a really good flavor that isn't so over powering as the pre-package ones. This recipe only takes minutes to put together because I had ALL the ingredients on hand and for a fraction of the price. I used 4 tsp. of powdered beef bouillion. I omitted the salt due to the sodium content in the beef bouillon. In our house, if you want salt, add it at the table. I will never buy the envelopes again.

Empanada Dough

Reviewed: Jan. 9, 2011
We blend 1T butter with 6T shortening with 2 knives, then follow these directions. Our filling was a mixture of shredded chicken breasts, onions, hard boiled eggs, green olives, cumin, chili powder, chicken bouillon powder, bay leaf, paprika. Topped with sour cream and salsa.

Cabbage Fat-Burning Soup

Reviewed: Oct. 3, 2010
I made the soup as written. If you are trying to loose a few pounds, why change the recipe. That is probably why you need to lose weight.

Easy Money Breakfast Burritos

Reviewed: Nov. 28, 2010
We browned pork sausage, onion, garlic and red pepper, drained grease. Added velveeta until melted. Mixed in beaten eggs and green chilies until set. Spoon onto flour tortillas, top with salsa and ENJOY! Did not use any butter. This recipe is very versatile with the ingredients you have on hand.

Easy Raspberry Vinaigrette Dressing

Reviewed: Jul. 18, 2011
I cut this recipe in half to try it. I used seedless/sugar free raspberry preserves and no salt. This had the right amount of tangy-ness. Went great with my grilled chicken salad. Now I'm making another batch for lunch tomorrow. It does start to separate so really mix well before serving.

Juicy Marinated Steaks

Reviewed: Jun. 9, 2011
We used an eye of round steak which is a cheaper cut of meat. This had such a good flavor and the cheaper cut of meat was quite tender. I marinated overnight. I can't wait to try this on a better cut of meat. I omitted the garlic salt and used minced garlic in the jar and onion powder for the onion salt, otherwise everything was as directed.

Spicy Bloody Mary Mix

Reviewed: Dec. 11, 2010
Very good with a little kick. Warms your belly on a cold wintery night. Will make again and again I'm sure. My husband likes to add this mixture to his beer.

After-Work Beef Pot Roast Dinner

Reviewed: Dec. 13, 2010
Used a beef roast. Made the "italian dressing mix" from this site as the dry rub called for. Very moist, tasty and extremely easy. Will be making again and again for sure.

Irish Stout Beer Pot Roast

Reviewed: Nov. 10, 2010
I used 12 ozs Sammy A draft, 1 can 25% less sodium cream of mushroom soup, homemade dry onion soup mix (from this site). I used regular potatoes and chip carrots. I also added a little corn starch to help thicken up the gravy. I don't add salt to any meal so if you want it, add it to your plate. Were quite pleased with this keeper!

Bruce's Hot Barbecue Sauce

Reviewed: Jun. 26, 2011
This recipe makes a lot of sauce so I halved the recipe. Made as written and it has a lot of ingredients. Instead of simmering it for an hour, I put in my pressure cooker on high and cooked it for 15 minutes. Put into 4 2 cup canning jars and let cool in the fridge. We had company over today and I opened a jar and "everyone" dipped their "chicken fried chicken" from this site into it and said "where did you buy this sauce, It's AWESOME". I ended up giving 2 jars away and plan to make more this coming weekend.

Tuna Melt

Reviewed: Jun. 25, 2011
Whenever I buy the sweet king rolls they are gone in the blink of an eye, so I used my favorite "skinny buns". Used shredded cheddar cheese, light "real" mayo and omitted the salt. We love our onion and celery in larger "crunchy" pieces instead of finely chopped. This made a very tasty, crunchy and light lunch. My hubby ate his without any bread and just topped the broiled tomatoes and cheese with the tuna mixture. He loved it!

Steve's Bourbon Buffalo Wing Sauce

Reviewed: Jun. 3, 2011
Made these as directed and my lips are still tingling. We love how you get a little sweet then wham spicy. Fried up a whole bag of wings and now they are all gone. No leftovers for tomorrow. Next time, I'm going to make 2 bags.

Dry Ranch Mix

Reviewed: Apr. 2, 2011
First, I cut this down to 4 servings. I made this to use in the "ranch oyster crackers" from this site. I omitted the saltine crackers, used 1/4 tsp garlic salt and 1/8 tsp onion salt (watching our salt intake). I had a dill mix from the pampered chef. This made a nice and mild flavor to the oyster crackers (wasn't over powering in our soup). I will make this into salad dressing next.

10 Minute Zesty Salsa

Reviewed: Feb. 27, 2011
Made as directed just did not measure out red onion or jalapeno peppers. Hubby ate half of it before it ever made it to the fridge. :)

Boiled Chicken

Reviewed: May 18, 2011
I put a whole chicken, onion, carrots, celery and water in my pressure cooker. Cooked it on high for 30 minutes. Perfection. Next time, I'm going to make homemade chicken stock.

Beef and Cheddar Soft Tacos

Reviewed: Mar. 31, 2011
As written this gets a 1 or 2. Brown the ground beef with onion. Add taco seasoning mix 1 from this site (1/4 cup), then add the salsa and soup mixture. Top the taco with sour cream, tomatoes, cheese and taco sauce. Now you have a winner.
