Lola's Horchata

Reviewed: Nov. 13, 2008
This recipe was great!! I never knew i could recreate one of my favorite drinks from the nearby mexican restraunt. I also followed what others said when making the recipe. When grinding up the rice, i only used 2 cups of the water and i added 2 cinnamon sticks and grinded it up, then added the remaining water and grinded it some more. I usually let it set out about 8 hours, strain it through a mesh strainer, then add the rest of the ingredients, minus the ground cinnamon and refridgerate till its cold!! It dosen't make much, so you have to double or even tripple the recipe to get a decent amount. I've made this recipe 3 times already now!! WONDERFUL

Apple Pecan Cornbread Dressing

Reviewed: Nov. 27, 2008
This was a great change from a normal sausage dressing. I thought it was a little sweet for my tastes, but topped with a little gravy and it was delicous. My hubby loved it!

Holiday Green Gelatin Salad

Reviewed: Nov. 27, 2008
Delicous! I was a little nervous at first when i read about the mayo since i'm not big on mayo, but it tasted wonderful!! I didn't add the pecans since i don't like nuts and it was perfect. Thanks!

Grandma's Green Bean Casserole

Reviewed: Nov. 27, 2008
This recipe was good, although mine did not cook all the way through because i thought i could get ahead of the game and refriigerate it and make it early, and since it was cold it was still cold when i pulled it out! Dumb me! I did make a few changes, i sauted the onion with the butter before adding the flour, and i mixed the cheese in with the greenbeans as opposed to putting a layer on top. It was delicous and we will be making it next year! And this time i wont put it in the refrigerator!! :)

Hot Spiced Cider

Reviewed: Dec. 3, 2008
Made my whole house smell WONDERFUL!! It tastes delicous also! So easy to make. I made this on the stove over medium heat for a couple hours, wrapped all the spices in a coffee filter and tied it with a twist tie, and just let the cinnamon stick and oranges float in the cider. Abosolutely wonder. I had made a precious apple cider recipe and it tasted like theraflu, so i was hesitant to make this, but glad i did! Definately a keeper!

Chicken Salad in the Tropics

Reviewed: Dec. 4, 2008
I thought the dressing for this salad was really gross, the sesame oil was WAY to overpowering, so i through out the dressing and completely started over, omiting the sesame oil, cutting the soy sauce in half, and also, leaving out the pepper, and even with that i still wasn't happy with the dressing. The salad was overall, just ok, nothing special, i would prefer a salad with ranch dressing and just some plain old grilled chicken over the top before i ate this one. BUT, my hubby loved it and scarfed it down, and finished mine, so i am giving it 3 stars, because i hated it and he loved it, so i found a happy medium.

Stuffed Green Peppers I

Reviewed: Dec. 8, 2008
I'm giving it a 4 because of all the changes i made. I sauted the beef and onion with 2 cloves of minced garlic, and i also seasoned it with italian seasoning, oregano, ground cumin, salt, pepper, and crushed red pepper. Next time i am going to add 2 cups of cheese instead of 2 because i love things cheesy, other than the changes i made it was DELICOUS!! Thanks!

Bourbon-Mango Pulled Pork

Reviewed: Dec. 9, 2008
This wasn't bad, but i was a little dissappointed because i couldn't taste the mango/burbon flavor i was hoping for, so i ended up adding my own touches, such as brown sugar, liquid smoke, chili powder, to make it more to my liking.

Southwest Chicken Salad I

Reviewed: Dec. 10, 2008
I'm giving this 4 stars, just because i thought it tasted good, but it just tasted like a taco to me, and i think its a lot easier to fry up some chicken and/or hamburger and add a packet of taco seasoning mix and add lettuce and cheese and whatever you want, than it is to make the dressing, chop the cilantro, and the onion, etc. It was good, but i won't be making it again, i'd rather make a taco salad.

Baked Ziti III

Reviewed: Dec. 15, 2008
I thought this was really good. Few changes i made, i tossed the pasta w/ the sour cream, and i fried the hamburger and onion together all at once as opposed to cooking the hamburger and then the onion and i also seasoned the meat w/ some garlic salt.

Colonial Hot Buttered Rum

Reviewed: Dec. 17, 2008
i made this and it smelled delicous all day, but when the time came and we actually had some, it was kinda mediciny tasting and the butter as other have said, floated to the top and made my lips feel all weird. It was very unpleasing. And It Wasnt because my crock pot wasn't hot enough because i had it simmering for 12 hours. I will not make this again, i made it, me and my hubby took 2 sips, and threw it out and ended up have rum and coke instead.

Christmas Cinnamon Pears

Reviewed: Dec. 25, 2008
I think i might make this a new chrismas tradition. They were very good with that light hint of cinamon falvor. i served them on the lettuce, but did not eat the lettuce with it. The lettuce made the presentation, but that was about it for me. Will make again

Bacon Wrapped Hamburgers

Reviewed: Dec. 30, 2008
mmmm this was one of the best burgers i've ever had!! My hubby thought there was to much onion, but i LOVE onion,so i thought it was fine. Couldnt taste the bacon much, so next time i will cook the bacon seperate and add it on top. Also added cheese to mine, because you can't have a burger without the cheese!!
