Fudge

Reviewed: Nov. 12, 2011
Followed the recipe exactly and all of the people I had over had 2-3 pieces (they were small) but it just wasnt my grandmas fudge. It was very good just not what I wanted. It was done in about 2 hours for those of you wanting to know how long it takes after putting it in the fridge.

Jalapeno Pepper Appetizers

Reviewed: Jan. 10, 2011
I started out making these with my mom when I was 10 years old. At first we did them the same way the recipe says and they turn out great but through the years I have come up with some other ways and additions to the recipe. One thing you have to make sure you do correctly is get all of the seed and stems out of the jalapeno. If not they will most likely be too hot to eat comfortaby. I also cook my bacon first and crumble it and add it to the cream cheese mix. I also cook a chopped onion in the grease and add that to the mix too. I add garlic powder and tonys and stuff the jalps with the mix and cook on 350 for about 30-45 minutes. I usually make stuffed mushrooms the same time I make the jalps and I stuff them with the same mix and cook the same time. They are both always a huge hit! I make them for every party we have.

Bacon 'n' Egg Bundles

Reviewed: Jun. 4, 2011
I made my bacon in the oven cooking it on a piece of foil crumbled up and on a cookie sheet on 350 for 15-20 minutes. It is cooked most of the way through that way but still soft. I scrambled my eggs and added cilantro and green onion. No salt needed because the bacon is so salty. I added cheese to some and some I did without. Both were good. Cooked for about 17 minutes and they were perfect. I added salsa to the top of mine. Very good! Very pretty too!

Oxtails with Gravy

Reviewed: Mar. 11, 2011
Yummy! I made this last night and it was amazing. I cooked the oxtails the night before and the only thing I did different was use onion powder and garlic powder instead of onioin and garlic. I cooked for 3 hours and the water reduced down a lot. I put the broth in the fridge so I could take the fat off the next day. The next day I warmed the oxtails in the oven on 275 for 30 min. I took the fat off the broth and warmed it in the microwave and I only had about 1/2 c of broth so I tasted it and it was really salty so I just added water to it to make a cup and used low sodium chicken broth for the other cup. Made gravy as recipe says and used worchester for browning sauce. When it was done I put the oxtails in the gravy and cooked on low for about 30 min. I give it only 4 stars bc the broth doesnt make 2 cups but thats ok bc it probably would have been too salty. Make sure you add broth slowly when you stir it in (about 1/4-1/2 c at a time).

Southern Chicken and Dumplings

Reviewed: Aug. 9, 2011
Awesome recipe. First time making dumplings from scratch and they came out very good. My husband said it tastes just like his grandmas except she didnt take the chicken off the bone just served it whole in the soup.. I think I will do that next time.

Soul Smothered Chicken

Reviewed: Oct. 19, 2011
This is amazing. My husband told me I better put this in my recipe box right now so I dont forget about it. I saw that some people had a hard time with the directions so this is what I did. I seasoned my flour with Tonys and left out the salt and pepper. I browned my chicken in the butter but did not drain it before I added the veggies. Then I added my flour 1 tbsp at a time then stir until it makes a paste then add chicken broth slowly 1/4 c at a time then add chicken and bring to a boil. Cook about 45 minutes. Also for those of you that dont like meat on the bone I would suggest buying split breasts and removing the breast and skin yourself and add the bons when you start the gravy that way you still get the flavor the bone gives off. It really does make a difference.

Southwest Chicken

Reviewed: Mar. 9, 2011
Made this tongiht and it was great. I cooked it in the crock pot for 4 hours on high and added maybe a 1/2 c water to it. I added more cumin, chilli powder, garlic salt and 1/2 onion and cilantro. Topped with cheese and more cilantro (I love it!) I also added more salt. It just needed something. A lemon or lime might have been good but my husband hates it when I add that. Very good base recipe.

Grilled Venison Backstrap

Reviewed: Jan. 31, 2011
Wow! I mean Wow! I used apple juice and added just some salt and pepper and after I poured out the juice I wrapped the bacon with red onion and jalapeno slices and let the bacon marinade in the bbq sauce also. Grilled for 15-20 minutes and they were perfect!

Fried Egg Sandwich

Reviewed: May 16, 2011
I followd another reviewers advice and I am so glad I did. This is what I did: Toast your bread and spread with mayo and ketchup. Then I took an oversized coffee cup and sprayed with pam then cracked an egg into it. Then I poked 3 small holes in the yoak. Then cover the cup losely with wax paper and put it into the microwave for 45 seconds. Then add your salt and pepper and slide it onto your bread and top with cheese. I will never be going to get McDonalds breakfast again!

Cheesy Broccoli Chicken Casserole

Reviewed: Jun. 7, 2013
This is delicious. My husband raved over it. I used knorrs creole butter rice and instead of mayo I used 2 big spoonfuls of sour cream. Didn't use curry powder. Used Cajun seasoning and red pepper. I didn't want to use all of those pans so I used leftover chicken and didn't cook the broccoli or onions just put them in the mixture of everything raw and it was cooked perfectly. It did make a whole lot. I filled my largest cassarole dish and filled a gallon sized ziplock about 3/4 full. I think I'm just going to freeze the leftovers since its just me and my husband and we still have half a pan left. Great recipe! Update**** I defrosted the leftovers in the fridge then baked as I did before and it tasted the same as it did the first time around. I wrote the instructions on the ziplock and I wouldn't try to eat it after 6 months according to stilltasty.com. I ate it at almost exactly 6 months.

Chicken Bouillon Rice

Reviewed: Apr. 29, 2011
This is the recipe my husband taught me when he showed me how to make rice. The only problem with the bullion cubes is that one half of a cube (1500 mg) is the amount of salt you should have in one day. If you can buy low sodium premade chicken broth do so. If not use one cube. I love salt but my high blood pressure doesnt :)! Butter is good to add to but absolutley not necessary expecially if you are looking out for your health. If it is still too bland for you add some herbs or spice (Red peeeper, cayanne). I hope this helps whoever is trying to stay healthy out there!

Sassy Tailgate Sandwiches

Reviewed: Mar. 9, 2013
Made this for lunch and it was so good. I didn't have onion and chive cream cheese so I used regular and added chives and onion powder. I cooked covered for 10 min and uncovered for 5. It was not soggy. I also used Swiss cheese. Really delicious sandwich for a quick lunch.

Oven Fried Chicken IV

Reviewed: Nov. 10, 2011
OK I probaby shouldnt even review this bc the only part I followed was use the sour cream then bread crums.I halved the recipe for 3 split breasts cut in half. I seasoned sour cream with garic powder, crushed rosemary, onion powder, chilli powder, cayanne, a ranch packet (next thime I would use only 1/2) and a lot of hot sauce. If you had trouble with the coating of the sour cream make sure you are drying your chicken really well. This was very good. My husband who doesnt even like sour cream loved this. I was origionally going to follow it exact but I started making it and it made me think of this dip I make and love so I made the dip instead.

Mexican Corn on the Cob (Elote)

Reviewed: May 2, 2011
Made this tonight and I accidentally mixed the butter and mayo together before I basted it onto the corn but it was still really good. I also added cayanne, chilli powder and cumin to the mayp mixture. Used grated ramano for the cheese and roasted in the oven on 350 for about 15 minutes since I realized we didnt have charcoal. It came out perfect! I will be making again soon!

Spinach and Feta Pita Bake

Reviewed: Mar. 1, 2011
This is sooo good! I havent been able to find peta bread so I have been using sourdough english muffins and they work really well. I have had trouble finding tomato pesto also so I have used tomato bruchetta and prego spaghetti sauce and both have worked out just as good. I also add goat cheese if I have it. This is a great quick lunch or dinner. Perfect to have kids make too!

Chicken with Herb Sauce

Reviewed: Jun. 6, 2011
Very good. Made a few changes. Seasoned my chicken with Tonys then cooked it. When it was done I added the oil, butter and chicken broth to the pan and I added about 8 sliced mushrooms and 4 cloves of garlic, minced and let them cook then added the herbs. I used much more basil and rosemary instead of parsley (I just dont like it). Then I added a cup more of the broth and mixed cornstarch in it to make a thicker sauce and served it all over pasta. This was wonderful. The mushrooms really make the meal.

Seafood Stuffed Avocados

Reviewed: Feb. 10, 2011
This was pretty good! I used everything that the recipie calls for but added some other things. First, more cucumber, 3 tbsp red onion (I think it needed more than that too), added cayanne, and I used light ranch and mayo. Also I used the alvacado. I put one lemon on it to make sure it didnt brown. I would have put the lemon on the whole mixture but my husband hates lemonly stuff so I only put it on the alvacado. Also I used fresh dill, I think it really helped. My husband and I loved it.

Cindy's Awesome Clam Chowder

Reviewed: Jan. 8, 2014
I had to use vegetable soup mix bc I couldn't find leek soup mix. I had to thicken with cornstarch at the end and I mashed some of the potatoes to help thicken. My secret ingredient is Cajun seasoning and a dash or two of cayenne. Also a splash of red wine vinegar is yummy too.

Caprese Appetizer

Reviewed: Aug. 18, 2013
Everyone loved this! Only thing I did different is use marinated mozzarella and I cut the tomatoes and mozzarella balls in half and drizzled with the marinade and sprinkled kosher salt. I made them the day before the party and they were perfect.
