Garlic Cheese Grits with Shrimp

Reviewed: Jun. 30, 2011
I really enjoyed this recipe. I try variations of shrimp and grits from adding sausage to adding crab meat. Those are more time consuming so I liked the simplicity of this recipe. I have never used lemon juice in my shrimp and grits, but I liked the twist it gave the sauce. The only thing I did different was to use a 1/2 cup of light cream along with 1 1/2 large chicken cubes to 3 1/2 cups of water (my grits called for 4 cups of water to 1 cup of grits) and I skipped the cheese altogether. I also added about 1 tbsp of cilantro to the shrimp and crumbled some turkey bacon on top just before serving. Muy delicioso.

Southern as You Can Get Collard Greens

Reviewed: Jan. 27, 2011
Cooking early for dinner, and I am not sure that I can wait to eat them. I've gotten other recipes for collards on this site and this is by far the best! So very good. Followed the basic recipe to the letter, minus the hocks (used smoked turkey wings). Oh, I did simmer the turkey wings for about an hour in the broth and water before adding the greens because that what mom does). Also added about tsp of dark brown sugar and dash of red pepper flakes. I used kosher salt and black pepper in the grinder to taste. Plan on looking at the rest of your recipes Southerngirl3. Muy bueno!

Bubba's Jambalaya

Reviewed: Apr. 11, 2010
Just made this Jambalaya. In fact my empty bowl is still beside me! I am not sure why more people didn't give it a five. I followed the recipe almost as is. The only change I made was omitting the ham, since we don't eat it. I just used a little extra sausage. Otherwise I made it just as Bubba advised. I was a little skeptical about if the uncooked amount of rice not being enough to fill up stew. But the ratio of rice to stew is perfect. Just like 'Nawlins! I used Aidell's cajun andouille sausage (grocery store), turkey bacon, and large gulf shrimp instead of salad shrimp. I suggest you McCormicks cajun seasoning with brown top, small bottle (Zatarain's is too salty for me) and use good rice like Uncle Ben's. I served with Haiwaiin sweet rolls to offset the spicy nature of jambalaya. Lastly, use extra shrimp b/c they are always the first to go!

Baked Sweet Potato Sticks

Reviewed: Feb. 11, 2010
This recipe is super easy and the potatoes come out so great. They are slightly crunchy on outside but have a roasted consistency on the inside. I made them twice in one week. My 12 year old son said they were delicious. I usually buy Chipotle Sweet potato fries from the frozen section for 3.99 but I save half that amount by buying my own sweet potatoes. These were equally delicious. In addition to the paprika I used Mccormick cajun seasoning and some sea salt along along with the olive oil. I cut into wedges as suggested in the recipe. The second time I made, I just sliced to to keep them circular. I love the flexibility of this recipe and the nutritional value (olive oil and vitamin packed sw. pot.). Pretty much you can go spicy or sweet and still yield a delicious result.

Tasty Collard Greens

Reviewed: Jan. 5, 2010
I made these for my Xmas brunch and they were very good and well seasoned. If you have leftovers after the first night definitely follow the advice of ANADRI and remove the liquid when you store. Mine were a little salty the second day. I didn't cook as long as suggested. I used a full bag of the fresh Greens found in the produce section. It seemed to be equal to the amount suggested.

Glazed Dijon Carrots

Reviewed: Jan. 5, 2010
These carrots are simple and delicious. I was skeptical because dijon mustard is not an ingedient of which i am overly fond. However, you only get a hint of the taste. It nicely balances out the sweet taste of the brown sugar. The only thing i added was about 2 teaspoons of honey. My son kept digging in for more. My husband doesn't like carrots but he liked these.
