Boston Iced Tea

Reviewed: May 29, 2009
Very good iced tea! Nice change to plain iced tea, this recipe gives just enough sweetness without being over-powering. I agree with other reviewers, you can experiment with this recipe and try other juices. It's still outstanding! Thanks for a great recipe!

Barbecued Shredded Beef

Reviewed: May 29, 2009
DH and I did not care for this recipe at all. It's very easy to make and calls for ingredients you'll typically find in a kitchen; however, we found it to be far to sweet for our tastes. We used a spicy BBQ sauce, so I'm not sure where the sweetness came in because we didn't divert from the recipe and made it exactly as written. If your family doesn't mind sweet BBQ taste, then this recipe might be for you because it's a breeze to make - which is why I'm warranting it 3 stars. I also agree with another reviewer - the liquid in the recipe is far to much.

Corn Dogs

Reviewed: May 2, 2009
Yum! I'm way to old to be craving corn dogs, but my appetite got the best of me and I craved a corn dog for 3 days. With no local fairs planned for a few months, I tried this recipe. PERFECT!!! Delicious and just the right amount of batter. A few tips: (1) Dry the hotdogs using paper towels prior to dipping to remove all moisture, (2) make sure the oil is not to hot, (3) pour the batter into a tall glass prior to dipping, which will give it that perfect corn dog shape! I have a gas stove, and these were done in 4 minutes (and the batter was done and the hot dog hot!), but your mileage may vary. We used Johnsonville Cheddar Cheese & Jalapeno Sausages, and they were AWESOME. Fun, easy to make, and tastes better than any corn dog you can buy.

Tiramisu Layer Cake

Reviewed: Apr. 12, 2009
YUM! I agree with another reviewer - this is an extremely forgiving recipe. I messed up and added the 1/4 C. of coffee and 1 T. of coffee liquor to the cake batter by accident (oops!). I feared it would never get done in the center - but it did!... and this cake turned out phenomenal. I also doubled all the liquor throughout the recipe (AND doubled the instant coffee) (and I didn't remove any other ingredients), and this was so great tasting. Lots of coffee taste, very moist and fabulous. Also looked so professional on the plate when sprinkled with cocoa powder and chocolate curls.

Pretzel Turtles

Reviewed: Apr. 11, 2009
Simply YUM. So fast and so easy to make. We ate them all in one day (there are only two of us!). GREAT!!! I used Rolos for my chocolate/caramel, and they worked perfectly!

Guinness® Corned Beef

Reviewed: Mar. 21, 2009
Planned to take this to a St. Patricks Day party at work, and everyone loved it - said it was the best Corned Beef they'd ever had! I did make one modification to the recipe - I used 1/2 c. of brown sugar instead of a full cup because I really don't care for sweet meat. The 1/2 c. turned out to be perfect, and the Guinness taste was more prominent! LOVED IT!!!

Coconut Tilapia with Apricot Dipping Sauce

Reviewed: Mar. 10, 2009
YUM! This is a great recipe for Tilapia, which tends to be a very mild and somewhat bland fish. My family is not a fan of main dishes that are sweet, but the coconut on the fish and the spicy/sweet of the side sauce is the perfect compliment to this recipe. We will definitely be keeping this in our 5* recipes for Tilapia!

Sausage Casserole

Reviewed: Feb. 22, 2009
Delicious! This is extremely flavorful and a great option for breakfast. I used frozen obrien potatoes with green/red peppers and onions, and Italian sausage. The only thing I would do next time is reduce the amount of butter by half. Other than that, a really delicious dish.

Sweet Restaurant Slaw

Reviewed: Feb. 15, 2009
OMG - YUM! This is JUST like Kentucky Fried Chicken coleslaw. I will never buy coleslaw from our grocery store deli again - because this recipe is SIMPLE to make and phenomenal in taste! The ONLY modifications I made is to the split the 2/3 C. of creamy salad dressing with half Mayo and half Salad Dressing (Miracle Whip), and added 1/2 tsp. of celery seed, in addition to the poppy seed it called for. Oh, also I only used 1/4 C. of sugar - figured I could add more later - but I didn't need too - 1/4 C. was MORE than enough. Just right!!! Unless you like super sweet cole slaw, I recommend cutting down the sugar! Well worth time/effort and great for any occassion! Thanks for the great recipe!

Oven Kalua Pork

Reviewed: Feb. 15, 2009
I recently made this for a party, and it was a HUGE hit. I've been waiting for months to try a Kalua pork recipe, having visited Hawaii and had real Kalua pork. This recipe is delicious and perfect for a crowd or party - as it makes a lot of food with minimal effort! I did make modifications based on other reviewers suggestions, and have prepared this two different ways. This recipe is best in the oven, NOT a slow cooker - the oven method was much more tender and flavorful. I did make modifications, which I think added tothe recipe. My modifications were as follows: 3 T. minced garlic, 1 T. minced ginger AND increased the Liquid Smoke to 2 T. The additional Liquid Smoke really makes this recipe pop! I will definitely be making this again and again! Several people asked for the recipe. I've tried this both ways - once wrapped with tinfoil (the BEST!) and once wrapped with banana leaves. Both were very, very good. You can't go wrong with this one with the modifications. Be SURE to use Hawaiian Sea Salt... it makes all the difference!

Delicious Ham and Potato Soup

Reviewed: Feb. 14, 2009
Holy Schmacks! I'm a harsh critic and was certain I wouldn't rate this 5*, but there was no way I could not. This recipe is phenomenal! Absolutely a hit - both of us had seconds, and ate too much. Just because I had it on hand, I added a cup of barley (the recipe did not need it), I just need to use it - it added a nice texture and didn't harm the flavor at all. Next time, I will add more ham (again, not because the recipe needs it), but who doesn't love more ham? ;-) Absolutely a 100% keeper - we're putting it in our all time favorite soup collection. Thanks for the GREAT recipe.

Boilermaker Tailgate Chili

Reviewed: Jan. 31, 2009
Woohoo! This chili helped me win the coveted Hottest Chili award at our chili cook-off! Everyone loved it. It has a great balance of flavors, has complexity and appealed to a wide variety of tastes. I didn't change a thing - I only added extra jalapenos for my personal taste. A+

Crustless Spinach Quiche

Reviewed: Jan. 11, 2009
FANTASTIC! I altered the recipe for our tastes (used cooked bacon, one finely chopped jalapeno, and chopped mushrooms). I also used a mixture of feta and gouda cheese (which is what I had on hand), and it was absolutely delicious. I loved other reviewers idea of using a muffin pan and it worked GREAT for my husband and I (there are only two of us), which made packaging them for leftovers a breeze. Thanks reviewers - what a great idea, and thanks to the submitter for a total keeper of a recipe! Love it! A+++

Soft Oatmeal Cookies

Reviewed: Jan. 2, 2009
YUM! These are fantastic cookies! I made these cookies for my husband (as I'm not a sweet fan), but these cookies were SSSOOO good - I'm now a huge fan, and have eaten several of them! Perfect in every way. The only thing I did was add a little nutmeg and chopped pecans. NUM - and they cooked perfectly. Definitely a 5* keeper in our house!

Pork Chops Stuffed with Smoked Gouda and Bacon

Reviewed: Jan. 1, 2009
Yum! Both my husband and I loved this recipe. Super simple to make, cooks perfectly, and has beautiful presentation on the plate. The taste was fantastic, although we may cut down on the parsley a little next time. We did it exactly per the instructions, and the recipe was perfect. Definitely a keeper - thanks!

The Whole Jar of Peanut Butter Cookies

Reviewed: Dec. 28, 2008
Wow! Phenomenal cookies - delicious peanut butter flavor. Definitely a keeper. Its much easier to make these cookies if the dough is chilled. I kept mine in the refridge between preparing each cookie sheet.

Easy Slow Cooker French Dip

Reviewed: Nov. 2, 2008
Fabulous! Did it exactly as the recipe stated. When I made the sandwiches, I spread the bread with a combo horseradish/sour cream mix, added fresh (raw) onions, topped with whole green chilies, then smoked gouda cheese and put them under the broiler to melt. They were phenomenal. Best french dip sandwiches we'd ever had. The sauce makes wonderful au jus! The smoked gouda, raw onions and green chilies topped it off for a fabulous lunch-time meal! Definitely a keeper.

Jackie's Sausage Soup

Reviewed: Oct. 6, 2008
Delicious and SIMPLE. I used Spicy Sausage (as opposed to sweet), and it was very spicy and delicious. Definitely will make it again - it's going in my favorite recipes book!
