Refried Beans Without the Refry

Reviewed: Mar. 2, 2013
No need to buy refried beans anymore, these are 100% better tasting! I made the recipe as is (with the cumin) and we all loved it.

Alyson's Broccoli Salad

Reviewed: Apr. 15, 2012
I used dried cranberries & almonds, blanched broccoli for 3-4 minutes then into an ice bath. I mixed the onions and broccoli the night before, and kept the dressing seperate until the next morning. Before serving I added the bacon and almonds. It came out great.

Bow Tie Pasta with Sausage and Sweet Peppers

Reviewed: Jan. 25, 2012
This was really easy and tasted great. I used gluten free sweet Italian sausage with a bell pepper & onion mix (a bought cut up & ready mix for fajitas). I actually cooked the onions with the sausage first, then added the bell peppers. I added in some salt & pepper, garlic, red pepper flakes and fresh basil. Tossed with gluten free penne for me, and regular for the family. Sprinkled in mozzarella and Parmesan cheese for extra yumminess.

Ron's Grilled Shrimp

Reviewed: Jan. 10, 2012
I went with the rave reviews here and decided to try this recipe as stated. The first time was for my birthday dinner but when the Mr. surprised the family with dinner out, I thought since someone else here commented that they left their overnight and they came out great, I'd be ok (even though I still worried). Boy they were NOT ok. Can you say Ceviche? That is what citrus juice does to seafood. It cooks it! They came out so tough and awful when he had them the next night. Weeks later, I thought I'd try again, but only gave it 30 minutes of marinated time. AGAIN! It came out tough and not so great, but the kids ate them. Sorry, this recipe is a fail for me.

Cheese and Bacon Potato Rounds

Reviewed: Jan. 9, 2012
These were a hit! I saw these on Pinterest and had to try them. Just like a baked potato with all the fixings. I baked mine on parchment so they wouldn't stick and it worked perfect. I seasoned my potatoes with garlic, salt and pepper too. I forgot to flip them, but that didn't matter, they came out great anyways. This is a keeper! See more at Mommy? I'm Hungry! food blog.

Cherry Pie III

Reviewed: Dec. 26, 2011
I made a gluten free crust for my cherry pie, used 3 jars of Trader Joe's Morello cherries, drained (36 oz of cherries). Cooked the filling and let it cool before adding to my pie shell to bake. Brushed the top crust with cream and sprinkled with turbinado sugar and baked for 1 hour. Then I chilled it to help set the filling even more. Slices came out beautiful.

Ham with Pineapple

Reviewed: Dec. 26, 2011
For the first time this year I dressed up my ham with this recipe, I baked it covered then uncovered the last 30 mins, basting throughout cook time. Everyone loved it, but I didn't taste any of the clove flavor like I thought I would. My ham was already cooked so it just needed to be heated (2 hrs 45 mins).

Mom's Best Macaroni Salad

Reviewed: Oct. 8, 2011
This was great! I love that it's not as tangy as other macaroni dressings. I left out the sugar but made it as directed adding sliced olives, yellow bell pepper & peas to it. At first it may seem like a lot of dressing, but allow at least a few hours to chill and the pasta will soak up some of the dressing. It keeps well for a few days after too.

Eggplant Parmesan II

Reviewed: Aug. 20, 2011
My first ever eggplant parm, even cooking w/eggplant. So I made a small 8x8 pan of this using 1 small eggplant cut into 8 equal slices. I seasoned each component (egg, panko, eggplant and each layer). I sweated my eggplant for 30 m ins, rinsed and patted dry then breaded and baked 10 mins/side. I used my own homemade marinara (Mommy? I'm Hungry blog). I baked it covered for 35 mins, then uncovered for 10 more mins. Let it sit for 15 mins then dove in. The eggplant was perfect, had a little density to it so it wasn't real mushy. I like it pretty well, enought that I kept going back for a bite as I was busy in the kitchen. I just don't think my kids or husband would eat this (why I made a smaller portion).

Fajita Marinade I

Reviewed: Aug. 16, 2011
I'll give this 4 1/2 stars, it would be even better had I grilled the meat. =) This marinade is awesome! I was skeptical at first since it didn't even smell like anything (followed the recipe as written) but had some hope since it had rave reviews. I did half chicken and half steak (sliced trip tip) and let it marinade for a few hours. I simply cooked it in a hot pan (wish I had grilled it) and cooked up pepper & onions to go with. It was SOOO good! This will be my go-to recipe for now on.

German Pancake

Reviewed: Jul. 27, 2011
5 stars for this! My first time ever making and having a German Pancake. This was super easy and so delicious, all 3 of my kids asked for seconds. The syrup is sooo good too. Will be adding this to our weekend breakfasts menus for now on, except maybe make 2 pans so we can all have seconds.

Spam Musubi

Reviewed: Jul. 21, 2011
This recipe was great! I was going to go with a teriyaki glaze for flavor but found this recipe for the spam sauce and from the rave reviews with the oyster sauce, I had to try this instead. It was delish! I had my Husband cut the bottom off the spam can to use for the mold, pressed the seasoned sushi rice (another recipe) in it, shook on some furikake then popped it out of the mold, added the cooked spam and nori. Good Hawaiian memories there.

Grilled Salmon I

Reviewed: Jul. 15, 2011
I am trying to get myself to like salmon, so I tried this recipe. It's very teriyaki like. I had a tiny 4 oz piece of salmon so I lightly seasoned it with the lemon pepper and salt, I used fresh garlic and cut the recipe to 2 TBL each of the soy, brown sugar, water and oil then marinaded it overnight in a baggie. I baked it in a foil packet in a 375' convection oven for 20 mins. and served over rice. The marinade was good, couldn't take the lemon pepper and it hid the taste of the salmon (which for me could be a good thing). From everyone else's review this sounds like it's a fave and a big star rating for them. I'm still trying to like salmon though...

Vanilla Crepes

Reviewed: Jul. 7, 2011
5 stars for these! These are my first ever homemade crepes. I added and extra 1/4 cup of milk so the batter was thinner and easier to spread. I sifted the dry Ing. into the wet and mixed well. Use a 10" skillet pan so you have spreading room and easier room to flip, keep temp on low so they don't brown too much. As they get done, stack between pieces of parchment paper or wax paper so they don't stick. We used nutella and fresh sliced strawberries in ours, dusted with powdered sugar. They were delish, even the kids loved them. (to be blogged)

Blueberry Lemon Bread

Reviewed: Jun. 26, 2011
This was great, very lemony. I used a little extra lemon juice, and a powdered sugar glaze w/lemon juice made it even more lemony. I baked it in a bundt cake (35-40 mins) and it came out short, so next time I'll use a loaf pan. I also used softened butter, and took 2 TBL of the flour from recipe to dust the frozen blueberries with, then added it all to the batter. Very good!

Blender Hollandaise Sauce

Reviewed: Jun. 19, 2011
This was my first time ever making Hollandaise, my second time ever eating it, and eggs benedict, I think this is my new fave breakfast. I had it at a Rest. last week, and theirs tasted a little more savory, but their sauce was a little broken. This sauce was super easy to make and came out super smooth and a little thick. I kept it warm in a measuring cup, in a pan of warm water. It looked great, but the flavor was too lemony (and I don't think I even used a full TBL), couldn't taste any of the hot sauce (I even added an extra dash of Cholula). I also added a pinch of salt to the recipe. Even though it tasted better with the eggs benedict, I think next time I'll use less lemon juice and maybe add a dash of Worcestershire? I made this for our Father's Day breakfast, and Mr. liked it.

Skillet Bow Tie Lasagna

Reviewed: Jun. 14, 2011
Great weeknight recipe, all in 1 dish. I used ground turkey, fire roasted toms, and a cute big Trottole pasta but had to add a little more water so the pasta would finish cooking. You won't even notice the cottage cheese in this, you could also smash it up when combining it with the Parm to break up those curds.

Beer-Batter Onion Rings

Reviewed: Jan. 25, 2011
These were great! I used 3-4 Vidalia onions, and added seasoning salt & a little paprika to the batter, and once they were fried. I had to use about 2 bottles of beer, to thin this batter out. This made TONS of onion rings. This is time consuming so be sure you have extra help in the kitchen while making dinner. I had Mr. grilling burgers while I cooked these, and kept them warm in the oven on low until ready to eat. We all loved them, and made our homemade burgers into Western with Big Al's K.C. Bar-B-Q Sauce found at AR.

Appetizer Meatballs

Reviewed: Dec. 26, 2010
These came out great! I made my own meatballs using beef and turkey. Made the sauce recipe as directed, heated it up, then tossed the meatballs and sauce in the crock-pot to keep warm while we munched on them. My Husband loved them.

Homemade Coleslaw Dressing

Reviewed: Dec. 11, 2010
This was a great, mild tasting dressing and quite easy to make. I tossed this with a bag of ready to go coleslaw and served on shredded BBQ pork sandwiches.
