Mango Quesadillas

Reviewed: May 22, 2014
Interesting and delicious take on the standard quesadiilla. I recommend dicing the mangos very small as the sweet taste is a nice addition but when you bite into a larger chunk the contrast becomes a bit too severe. The seasoning is spot on.

White Peach Sangria

Reviewed: May 22, 2014
Absolute hit at my birthday party! I cut it with Vernor's ginger ale to keep people from hitting the floor because without it, the sangria is VERY strong. I used New Amsterdam peach flavored vodka. Delicious and easy to make, especially if using frozen fruit.

Juicy Butt Steaks

Reviewed: May 10, 2014
Nothing fancy here yet this recipe is simple and delicious. I didn't have enough ketchup on hand so I ended up doing 1/3 ketchup and 2/3 Sweet Baby Ray's BBQ sauce. Left it in the crock pot on low for about seven hours while I was at work and this fell right off the bone. My picky eater husband said it was "pretty good" and when it comes to a recipe with so few ingredients and so little effort, I give it two thumbs up.

Poor Man's Beer Batter Fish

Reviewed: May 2, 2013
Make sure your oil is hot enough if your fish is turning out soggy, first of all. Very important. This recipe is VERY easy - the people I served it to were very impressed. I used Leinekuegel's Summer Shandy which gave a wonderful lemon flavor to the dish. While it's not necessarily the most delicious breaded fish I've ever had, it's still darn tasty and much easier so I had to give it five stars. I'll be making this again soon, I'm sure.

Asian Rainbow Trout

Reviewed: May 2, 2013
Peanut oil is definitely better in this dish than olive oil, as well as brown sugar instead of white sugar. With these changes, the recipe would be four stars but as is it is just okay. Living on a lake has taught me many ways to serve fish and this recipe is neither the best nor the worst way I've prepared/eaten trout. It's nice for a change of pace.

Sweet Green Bean Bundles

Reviewed: May 2, 2013
Had a little trouble having the bundles stay together but I think wrapping them tighter with less beans in them would do the trick. I used fresh green beans that I steamed for this. Everyone seemed to enjoy these - though not quite as much as I did, probably because I'm the big green bean fan in the house. But even my picky husband had a few bundles without me forcing him, so it's a great way to sneak some vegetables in for those who hate anything green. Better to eat beans in bacon than no beans at all!

Sylvia's Ribs

Reviewed: May 2, 2013
Amazing. I was apprehensive of all the ketchup but followed the recipe to a t and was very happily surprised by the outcome. This has been my favorite recipe for ribs yet and I'm intending on bbqing some chicken wings with this sauce recipe I loved it so much.

Grilled Corn on the Cob

Reviewed: May 2, 2013
Wonderful! I took the advice of other reviewers... soaked in water for thirty minutes, didn't bother removing the silk (good idea, it practically falls off after being cooked). The end product reminded of fresh corn on the cob I used to have back home in Illinois, really delicious. Thanks for posting this simple but great recipe!

Roasted Asparagus with Parmesan

Reviewed: Apr. 12, 2013
This was a nice, simple dish but actually ranks low on my favorite ways to prepare asparagus. The Parmesan didn't seem to really match the flavor of the asparagus, though the garlic powder brought a nice element to it. I don't think I'll make this again but it's not a bad recipe; simply a matter of taste.

Yummy Lemon Salmon Burgers

Reviewed: Aug. 22, 2012
This one's definitely a keeper. I made my own breadcrumbs and Italian seasoning, unfortunately ran out of lemon juice (got about one and a half tablespoons into the mix, didn't realize I was almost out), used freshly caught salmon from Lake Michigan and baked the patties instead of frying them (five patties took about 13 minutes, flipping them halfway). I also did not make the mayo spread because I utterly loathe mayo and used sour cream instead. The sour cream was good but I think I will use tartar sauce in the future. Other than those changes, I followed the recipe pretty closely and really enjoyed the results. The two tablespoons lemon juice probably would have been perfect as I am a huge lover of citrus flavors in fish but the one and a half is noticeable, yet subtle, for those who are not that into lemon. These patties have been added to my top three favorite recipes for salmon. Thank you MELDS for sharing.

Chicken and Biscuit Casserole

Reviewed: May 8, 2012
I'd recommend upping the spices a bit for more flavor or using bullion cubes instead of broth but otherwise, this is a really easy way to use up chicken you've already cooked.

Deviled Eggs

I don't eat devilled eggs but my mother, who thinks that eggs are God's greatest gift to man, loved these.

Tender Chicken Nuggets

Reviewed: May 6, 2012
Forget the Ranch, use an egg. I greatly regret not reading the reviews before I made this. Other than that, this is a simple, tasty recipe.

Grandma's Green Bean Casserole

Reviewed: Nov. 27, 2011
This dish was a big hit at Thanksgiving this year and two out of four at the dinner don't even usually enjoy green bean casserole (or "GBC" as they disdainfully called it). However, I persuaded them this was not ordinary "GBC" and they both found that they enjoyed the dish so much, it was the first of the leftovers to get completely gobbled up! Two thumbs way up for this dish. As for alterations, I used one cup of Colby Jack and one cup of Cheddar since I enjoy the combination of the two better then just Cheddar. Will definitely be making this again and again.

Awesome Sausage, Apple and Cranberry Stuffing

Reviewed: Nov. 27, 2011
I was a little disappointed by this after all the hype it's gotten. I followed it pretty closely, with a few alterations that were recommended by other reviewers (minor tweaks like sage sausage and Granny Smith apples instead of regular sausage and Golden Delicious, respectively), but found that I still prefer stuffing with bacon rather then sausage. I've never added apples to my stuffing before, however, so I am happy to have walked away from this with the discovery of what kind of great flavor apples can add to your stuffing. This is a wonderful recipe but I prefer my family's.

Homestyle Turkey, the Michigander Way

Reviewed: Nov. 27, 2011
Being from Michigan, I assumed I knew how to do this already but used this recipe as my guide this year at Thanksgiving. The broth with the parsley is a nice touch that I haven't tried before, it added to my pan drippings nicely and the turkey turned out to be the best, most moist turkey I've prepared yet. This with a Butterball is definitely a winner.
