Slow Cooker Enchiladas

Reviewed: Dec. 3, 2009
I took the advice of another reviewer and 'flash-fried' the tortillas (approx 10 secs in very hot oil). I also left out the cream of mushroom soup as I didn't have any - substituted with sour cream. Delicious!

Down-South Style Green Beans

Reviewed: Aug. 11, 2009
These beans were very tasty (very similar to the the beans I learned how to make from my granny and mama). My comments: 1) The original poster must have had a saltier ham hock than the ones I get - as other posters have mentioned, I do add more salt. 2) I always use minced, fresh onion rather than onion powder. 3) I never use lard, bacon grease is the way to go. If you don't have a ham hock, you can really just use bacon grease alone. 4) For the reviewers who didn't care for the taste/texture of the beans - these are not haricots vert and are not intended to be crisp. These are southern-style green beans (as indicated by the name of the recipe) and if you like 'em, you like 'em - if you don't, you don't. Some people enjoy both kinds(like me). 5) And finally, if you want to get truly southern, serve these beans with real southern cornbread (NOT the sweet kind), cooked in a cast iron skillet. Don't discard the soup (the pot likker, as my granny would say) and don't discard the ham hock until you've picked the meat off of it and scattered it in the beans. You can also throw some small new potatoes on top of the beans for the last half hour or so.

Browned Butter Vegetables with Almonds

Reviewed: Jul. 14, 2009
This was very tasty! My 4yo and 2yo enjoyed it as well. For those who didn't taste the 'nuttiness,' make sure you let the butter brown - this takes at least 10-15 minutes on low-medium heat - otherwise you just get the 'plain' butter taste. I also decreased the butter by 1/3 - still delicious. The almonds accented the dish perfectly. I served it with shrimp scampi and garlic bread.

Marinated Pork Tenderloin

Reviewed: May 31, 2009
This recipe could have been a five-star - I definitely could see (and taste!) the potential. However, we tried grilling it over charcoal and ended up charring the outside to the point where we had to finish it in the oven. Perhaps we should have blotted off more of the marinade before grilling since it had such a high sugar content? Or used the gas grill where we could better control the temp? Will definitely try again, though.

Berry Cheesecake Parfaits

Reviewed: May 18, 2009
This was good. I made it as a trifle rather than as individual servings.

Marinated Scallops Wrapped in Bacon

Reviewed: Apr. 22, 2009
Very tasty! Prepared exactly as directed but only marinated for about 45 minutes which was perfect for us - the scallops didn't lose their texture and retained their distinctive taste. Will definitely make again.

Fluffy Potato Casserole

Reviewed: Apr. 17, 2009
Really, really tasty. Loved the texture, very fluffy and light - do NOT omit the eggs or flour unless you want a much denser end result. Made no changes except to caramelize the onions before adding to potato mixture. We thought the amount of onion was perfect - others had noted a 'too oniony' taste - maybe caramelizing made the difference. I also used a hand mixer on med-fast for about 4 minutes to get the mixture really high and fluffy and then folded gently into the casserole dish. Yummy! I may take a previous reviewer's advice and add some bacon next time.

Chorizo Burger

Reviewed: Apr. 17, 2009
This was good. If we make again, we will cut the amount of paprika in the sauce in half - it was way too paprika-y for us. The burgers themselves were delicious - I took the advice of another reviewer and added an egg to the meat mixture. It was very flavorful but not too spicy for our 4- and 2- year old children.

Baked Mac and Cheese for One

Reviewed: Mar. 25, 2009
First time I have been inspired to post a review despite using the site for a couple of years now. I needed to use up an opened box of elbow macaroni and found this 'recipe for one.' This mac-n-cheese recipe was absolutely delicious. Loved the flavor and texture - very creamy. Some 'scratch' mac-n-cheese recipes seem to require too much flour or baking time and the texture can be very grainy. Not this one! Only changes - I omitted the worcestorshire and used a little extra cheese on top. Now, I just need to scale the recipe to serve several people and I will proudly prepare it for our next family gathering. Yummy!!!
