BUSH'S® Best Black Bean Salsa

Reviewed: Mar. 31, 2009
I make this with the Mild Rotel and chopped sweet bell peppers (red, yellow and/or green)instead of the jalapeno so my child can enjoy the salsa. We really enjoy this with homemade baked tortilla chips (recipe on this site). I serve this as an appetizer before dinner so we get our beans in each week. It really deserves 10 stars-the taste is amazing!

Fluffy Pancakes

Reviewed: Jun. 5, 2010
My hubby and 5-yr-old made these for me for Mother's Day this year. They were very, very good! They were fluffy and tasty. A keeper for sure!

Curried Coconut Chicken

Reviewed: Jul. 10, 2010
This was outstanding! I actually used bone-in, skin-on thighs. After cooking the curry with the oil, adding the onion & garlic, then adding the tomato, I braised the thighs with the curry for about 20-30 minutes. I then mixed the remaining ingredients and put the lid on to simmer for about an hour. The chicken was done to perfection. I topped with fresh cilantro and served over rice. The family loved it! Will be making again. Next time I will add chunks of zucchini and sliced fresh mushroom. I think I will also add pineapple chunks and add the juice in place of the sugar.

Juicy Butt Steaks

Reviewed: Jul. 26, 2010
I wanted to do something different with the pork butt steaks I had on hand. I usually just sprinkle with Season All and bake or grill. Came across this recipe. Glad I did. The steaks came out amazingly tasty. I still sprinkled with Season All, baked at 350 for about 15-20 minutes. Then covered with sliced onion and a mixture of 1 cup Sweet Baby Rays and water (did not have ketchup). I continued to bake, uncovered, for another hour or so. The meat just fell apart. The onions were so good. Next time I will slice up about 3 onions. I basted the onions and exposed steak with the sauce a couple of times. My husband could not stop raving. This is a keeper!

Garlic Croutons

Reviewed: Aug. 6, 2010
Made these last week with a multi-grain French loaf. They turned out really good. Today I'm using a Black Russian Pumpernickel. I'm into shortcuts so this time I'm melting the butter in the microwave and adding powdered garlic to it. I am also adding salt as I thought it was needed originally. I am putting the cubed bread into a very large bowl and drizzling the garlic butter over the bread as I stir it around. I think this will get the butter more evenly distributed and I can do it all at once instead of batches in the skillet.

Beef Stew II

Reviewed: Dec. 8, 2010
This was very good! I added potatoes and used some of the other suggestions, like soy sauce, from others. I am going to add curry powder to what little I have leftover and serve over rice. Yum!

Baked Oatmeal II

Reviewed: Mar. 5, 2011
Just made this and wanted to rate it as being wonderful. I have never made baked oatmeal before, heck never even heard of it. Found the recipe by accident. So glad I did! I made it exactly as written except for omitting the cranberries and cutting the brown sugar to 1/2 cup. It's hard to describe the texture. At first I thought it was going to be sorta like a cake as I cut through it. But it crumbled apart as I plated it. It is sorta like a warm moist granola. Think stuffing/dressing texture. The top was just very slightly crisp around the edges. I baked mine in my small PC deep dish baker, sorta close to an 8x8 sized dish, for 30 minutes. I topped our servings with a pat of butter and 1 tsp. of pure maple syrup. My picky 6-yr-old LOVED it. Can't wait to see how the leftovers are! This is worth trying out!!!

Creamy Au Gratin Potatoes

Reviewed: Apr. 18, 2011
Obviously more effort than the boxed version, but well worth the extra time spent. My family raved. The flavor is different from the boxed version. This is not a copy-cat recipe. After having this, I feel like the potatoes in the boxed version are not real. This is real food and it is super yummy! Make the effort. You won't be disappointed! *note-I did follow some of the other reviewers tips, like chopping the onion and layering the sauce and adding a little garlic.

Thai Curry Soup

Reviewed: May 19, 2011
Just made this tonight on a whim. I had the basic ingredients and thankfully the red curry paste. Did not have shrimp, but used leftover bbq grilled chicken. I improvised with the ingredients I had on hand. Used garlic from a tube (Gourmet Garden) and ginger in a tube from the asian mkt. I used full fat coconut milk, skipped the spinach and cilantro (did not have). I used 2 True Lime packets for the fresh lime juice. The flavors were spot on. Even my 6-yr-old loved it. She asked for seconds!

Grilled Shrimp Scampi

Reviewed: May 25, 2010
This is beyond amazing! I did use half butter/half olive oil. Dried parsley. Fresh garlic in a tube (Gourmet Gardens brand). We had those frozen gigunda shrimp from Sam's. They are like small lobster tails. My husband's birthday dinner rocked!!!

S.O.P.P.

Reviewed: Nov. 15, 2011
This was very simple yet very satisfying. The potatoes did take a lot longer than noted in the recipe. I added 2 onions cuz we love onions. I did not have fresh peppers so I added some roasted red peppers from a jar and it was perfect. Today, we are eating leftovers with cheddar-jack melted over the top and some hot sauce. I would def make again.

Slow-Cooker Chicken Tortilla Soup

Reviewed: Nov. 16, 2011
This is exactly like the tortilla soup we often have in Cabo San Lucas, Mexico except it has more "stuff" in it. They are kinda chintzy at the local dive that we frequent. The only changes I made, by accident, were to add a 14 oz. can of enchilada sauce, forgot the garlic and put in 32 oz. of chicken broth for the water and broth originally called for. I did not add the fresh cilantro until serving time. I added 1 packet of True Lime per large serving bowl, 1 chopped avocado and used crushed store-bought tortillas to save time. It was outstanding!

Thousand Island Salad Dressing

Reviewed: Jan. 5, 2012
1000 Island is my daughter's favorite dressing. I made this for her and she LOVED it. I did use a only 1/4 tsp paprika but everything else was the same. Make this! You won't be disappointed!

Homemade Shake and Bake Mixture

Reviewed: Jan. 5, 2012
This is really awesome! Glad I took the time to prepare this from scratch rather than buying the box. I used panko crumbs and didn't use any of the "salts" but granulated garlic and a small amount of celery seed instead. I did use the regular salt in the amount indicated tho. There was so much flavor. My family raved about it! I cooked bone-in pieces at 400 degrees for about an hour. Amazing!

Eclair Cake

Reviewed: Feb. 5, 2012
This was a hit at the super bowl party. I beg to differ with reviewers, this tasted very much like the choco covered eclairs I buy in the freezer section. The graham crackers I bought were store brand, not very sweet and tasted like cardboard to me. But I had to use them since I bought them especially for this. Used the cool whip and instant vanilla pudding as called for. Followed other reviewers and brought 1 cup of heavy cream to boil and poured over a full 12 oz. bag of semi-sweet Ghiradelli chips and whisked in 1 tsp of Rodelle vanilla. Poured over and smoothed out and put in the fridge for 24 hours. AMAZING!!!!

Maple Salmon

Reviewed: Feb. 24, 2012
I used the foil idea and baked for 15 minutes in the marinade inside a packet of heavy-duty foil. I put the marinade in a pan and added dijon mustard to taste and made an amazing sauce. Did not add any cornstarch. I broiled skin side up since my 7-yr-old loves crispy salmon skin! This was very tasty!

Balsamic Roasted Pork Loin

Reviewed: Jan. 4, 2013
Had a boring pork loin roast and a bunch of veggies to get rid of and felt very uninspired until I saw this recipe. I pretty much followed it but did make a few changes. I lined my Pampered Chef cookie bar pan with heavy duty foil and sprayed with cooking spray. I cut up 3 sm. onions, a green pepper and a red pepper, a head of broccoli and a couple handfuls of baby carrots. I spread them on the entire sheet and drizzled with oil and sprinkled with 2 tsp. from a Good Seasons dry dressing packet. I roasted the veggies at 450 for 30 minutes. Meanwhile I marinated the pork in 1/3 c. balsamic oil, 1/2 c. oil, the rest of the dry dressing packet and a generous shaking of granulated garlic while the veggies were roasting. I then made room for the pork along side the veggies and poured the marinade, which had thickened up, over the pork and some of the veggies. I also poured about a cup and a half of chicken broth over the veggies to keep them from getting dried out. I put an oven probe into the center (the kind that you leave in while roasting) and waited for the temp to get to 150. 45-minutes later I have an amazing looking and tasting pork roast and the veggies are perfect! I'm sorry I changed things up but this recipe did offer great inspiration and a good starting point. I served it all with mashed potatoes. A Riesling goes well with this, too.

Pico De Gallo

Reviewed: Jul. 7, 2011
So much better than what I've had at restaurants! I omitted the pepper for my 6-yr-old and accidentally forgot the garlic. I added 1 packet of True Lime. Everyone requested that I make it the same way from now on. It was outstanding!!!
