It's Chili by George!!

Reviewed: Dec. 31, 2010
Look no further! This recipe is AWESOME as a base - I always get raves no matter how I modify. I don't drain the ground beef, however. I add things in my fridge like salsa, various hot sauces, etc. I also use Taco Seasoning I (bill echols) from this site. If you can find Luck's Pinto beans (they have pork in them....yeah, I'm not helping anyone's cholesterol level), you will really take this recipe over the top. This chili gets better on day 2 or 3, too! You will never have a bad batch with this recipe as a start (or alone) ....I promise!

Fluffy Pancakes

Reviewed: Jan. 26, 2010
I've tried almost every pancake recipe on this site and like this one best because of the final texture. Definitely add 1-2 Tbsp vanilla to the mix. I've made these using apple cider vinegar and white vinegar. You can use either without impacting the taste, just don't freak out by the smell. Using an iron griddle, you have to use lower heat because of how fluffy these are, otherwise the insides don't cook as well. I typically do add an extra splash of milk to the original recipe or sometimes more to make thin pancakes. Works great either way. These are super fluffy. I use my 1/8c measuring cup to spoon these out for perfect sizing. Use 1Tbsp for mini sized for the kids (or I make them into Mickey Mouse heads using the 1/8c for the head and 1Tbsp for ears). As far as taste goes, as my husband said, "they taste like pancakes".

Fantastic Mexican Dip

Reviewed: Jan. 1, 2008
If you want to add a layer of refried beans on the bottom, mix the beans with some taco sauce, salsa, or whatever you may have in your fridge to make it creamier and easier to dip. It's also better to make the refried bean and sour cream/cr cheese layer the night before and allow the flavors to develop.

Cream Cheese Brownies

Reviewed: Jan. 21, 2007
These are awesome and couldn't be easier to make. The first time I made them I had the brownie mix with the fudge chunks on used that instead of vanilla chips...took them to Christmas dinner and they were gobbled up. I don't frost them, either. I've used Grand Marnier for the orange great!

Creamy Brandy Alexander

Reviewed: Dec. 2, 2006
brandy alexanders are awesome around the holidays...however, a true brandy alexander has a lot more than a tablespoon of brandy and creme de cacao.....try one shot of each (1 oz)...happy holidays!

Jambalaya II

Reviewed: Sep. 3, 2001
My boyfriend at four helpings (one sitting) and then declared, "You couldn't get a better bowl from a street vendor in New Orleans." I used cajun sausage (like a bratwust type) freshly made at my grocery store, cooked it in about an inch of water over the stove and sliced it up instead of smoked sausage. I also added shrimp during the last 20 min. IT WAS AWESOME!!!

Chicken Wild Rice Soup I

Reviewed: Sep. 3, 2001
I thought the recipe was OKAY....but no big deal....a little boring but good at the same time... I added fresh rosemary w/the roux and a little Essence which helped. I used a LOT of milk and it was still pretty thick...more like a chicken and rice entree than a soup.....
