Taco Salad

Reviewed: Aug. 16, 2014
Excellent recipe as is, but I did change some to give it a more taco-like flavor. I added a dash or two of cayenne pepper and a couple shakes of black pepper. I also added in about an 1/8 of a teaspoon of cumin. Lacking chips, I opted for a soft shell taco and this was excellent. I will definitely make again. ***Update*** My better half was not here when I made this, but she had it as leftovers the next day. She is a bit of a taco salad fan, perhaps even fanatic. She said that this was the best she has ever had, and we've had zillions. We served this over Nacho Cheese Doritos chips on day 2. One side note: I feel this recipe serves more than 2. More like 3 or 4. Thanks!

Rigatoni Ala Vodka

Reviewed: Jan. 26, 2014
Another excellent meal Boun Appetito! This is my very first recipe using vodka or a burn off and it really turned out great. Makes me happy I bought some good stuff. I did have to sub a couple ingredients. I used Hunt's tomatoes with basil and garlic and I used aged Asiago cheese, both with the chef's blessings. Sorry folks, but my remote location doesn't give me the luxury of some ingredients. My lovely lady loved this too. It was also super easy to make. Recipes like this make me look like a genius. That isn't easy to do. Thanks again!

Spaghetti Diablo with Shrimp

Reviewed: Jul. 17, 2013
I was short on time, so I wasn't able to simmer for 2 hours, but it was fantastic. It had some kick, probably just enough. This recipe could be easily adapted for many tastes. You could add in bacon or broccoli or mushrooms, as some have suggested and this would be just elevated to a new level. Topping with cheese is essential.

Ken's Perfect Hard Boiled Egg (And I Mean Perfect)

Reviewed: Jan. 31, 2014
I was skeptical on this method but it works great with fresh eggs. Takes forever to get the water to boil on my stove.

"Fowl" Weather Broccoli Casserole

Reviewed: Jul. 10, 2013
Excellent casserole. I came across this little beauty and wondered why no one has tried it. I loved the rice as a crust, even though it never got hard like a crust, but that was just fine by me. It was like a hidden treasure. Also it's creamy with a lot of nice flavors. I'm not a huge fan of using canned soups in recipes, especially cream of celery, but the tastes blended well and I didn't even notice them. Now I didn't make it 100% as written and here is what I changed: I added 1/4 tsp of pepper, 1/2 cup of onions and 2 chopped garlic cloves before I added the broccoli to the chicken. I omitted the salt and I highly recommend doing so unless you are using unsalted butter and low sodium soups. I also used a 16 oz bag of frozen brocoli (I think 6 oz may have been a typo?). I steamed my broccoli so this cut my initial (before onion rings) oven time down to about 25 or 30 minutes, until it was slightly browned and bubbling. I think this casserole would have been equally as good without my changes (except for the salt), but we really like our onions and garlic here, so I HAD to add them.

Chicken Marsala

Reviewed: Jul. 9, 2013
We are normally not people that care for wine in our food, but having not tried Marsala before we gave it a try. This recipe was simple and very tasty. We will make again.

Bodacious Broccoli Salad

Reviewed: Jul. 8, 2013
Wonderful. I made it as written with the exception of cutting the pepper in half. The only complaint I had was if someone scooped from the bottom of the bowl without mixing first. That was a little vinegarry from settling out. I think there is a lot of things you could do with this recipe such as adding green peppers or peas.

Ham Cake-ettes

Reviewed: Jul. 8, 2013
Excellent recipe. I did use regular chopped onions instead of green onions. While eating them we discussed many uses and varieties that could be done with this recipe. They would be good as part of a breakfast menu, or layered into a casserole dish and topped with panko and then baked for a healthier and faster version, or just simply mashed potatoes without the panko. I will make again in some fashion. Thanks!

Grandma Drexler's Bavarian Goulash

Reviewed: Feb. 4, 2014
I loved this goulash. I followed the recipe exactly. It was easy to make, creamy with a bit of sauerkraut, but not over-powering. I served it over Tim Drexler's steam cooked dumplings, which was a perfect match for this. I will make this meal again.

Steam Cooked Dumblings

Reviewed: Feb. 4, 2014
What a unique way to do dumplings! I followed the recipe exactly as written and they were perfect for use over Grandma Drexler's Bavarian Goulash. I will probably make these again for use in other recipes that call for dumplings, with some possible additions.

Chinese Fried Noodles

Reviewed: Feb. 5, 2014
5 stars for taste, although I found the whole procedure used to be overly burdensome and using a lot of extra dishes that wouldn't be needed. I will make this recipe again, using different techniques.

Char Siu (Chinese BBQ Pork)

Reviewed: Feb. 5, 2014
My grill is under a snow bank, so I made this as close as I could on a pan on the stove. I did cook with some of the extra marinade, so I probably got a little extra flavor from that. Very nice. I will probably make again.

Monkey Bread Kabobs

Reviewed: Aug. 10, 2014
Great recipe ShoreCook! Instead of the cherries, I used maple sausage. I had fully cooked the sausage first and did the kabobs on a gas grill using a grilling mat. That worked fantastic. I won't lie, the whole procedure is a bit tedious and messy, but the end result is definitely worth it. When everyone finally found their way out of the campers, they were greeted with this. They loved it and asked me to do it again, and I will, but with help!

Mall Pretzels

Reviewed: Apr. 16, 2013
Excellent recipe, except the salt should be added in the flour step and not before. After forming into pretzel shapes, you should allow it to at least double in size.

4-Bean Baked Beans

Reviewed: Mar. 31, 2013
Excellent bean casserole. I added about 1/4 cup of Jim Beam. I would probably cut back on the vinegar a little next time I make it. Definitely will make again.
