Thin Spaghetti with Garlic, Red Pepper and Olive Oil

Reviewed: Jun. 3, 2014
This is a great lunch or dinner on a day you're running late. I served it with a green salad and homemade Italian bread. I wasn't sure how the 4 yr old would like the red pepper but he didn't seem to notice it. I have been making this for years but this was the first time I added the red pepper and I must say it bumps this up from pretty good to yummy? Thanks!

Mocha Smoothie

Reviewed: May 29, 2014
This is a bit different, but good. I found it a little too sweet for my preferences, so I would cut way back on the sugar or eliminate it altogether, but I will add it to my rotation. Thanks, Luke.

Mango Mousse

Reviewed: May 27, 2014
This is so easy! I would have liked a bit more flavor so next time I will probably add lime juice when I purée the mango.

Chocolate Chip Sour Cream Coffee Cake

Reviewed: May 19, 2014
For my tastes there are too many flavors going on here. I would leave the chocolate chips out if using the filling and topping. I also thought it was too sweet so I would either top it or fill it but not both. It did bake up nice and moist.

Danish Blue Lamb Chops

Reviewed: May 18, 2014
LAMB chops are amazing with the bleu cheese topping! I prefer to cook my chops to medium rare, so the times may have to be adjusted to accommodate the thickness. Emmy, this is a great recipe, thank you! 5/24/14

Penne with Spring Vegetables

Reviewed: Apr. 30, 2014
I used this as the base for the Johnsonville 6 Ingredient challenge. I added a large clove of garlic, minced and 1/2 pound Johnsonville Mild Fresh ground sausage. Rather than boil the vegetables, I blanched the peas then transferred them and the asparagus to the pan with the cooked sausage and stir fried it all. We thoroughly enjoyed it. Jessica, thanks for a great inspiration.

Sriracha Honey Chicken

Reviewed: Apr. 26, 2014
I knew from experience the proportion of honey to Sriracha would be too spicy for our family so I started at 1:1, added the other ingredients and tasted. At that point I added more Sriracha to taste, perhaps 1 part honey to 1.5 parts Sriracha. I also used BLSL thighs for better chicken flavor. This is a great example of a recipe that anyone can make to taste. Thank you, Sadaf!

Amazing Muffin Cups

Reviewed: Apr. 12, 2014
We will be serving these for Easter brunch. I need to bake them in muffin cups so I have to figure a way to keep them from sticking, I think the egg seeps between the potatoes. I will use ground sausage for those only because of the number we have to make. And the bonus is I can easily adapt these for our vegetarians. Thank you Johnsonville for your great products and recipes!

Brussels Sprout Hash

Reviewed: Apr. 11, 2014
I admit I haven't found a way to prepare Brussels Sprouts that I don't like but this way tops them all! They turn a lovely, bright, fresh green which provides eye appeal, then you get to the taste - buttery, slightly sweet, slightly earthy and all the way delicious. The 1/4 cup of butter made me nervous, but they are not greasy at all. I didn't have honey butter so I simply drizzled about a large tsp of honey over them when they were almost done and mixed it in as I transferred to a serving bowl. The wine just pulls it all together. I may add a bit of minced garlic to the onions next time. And there will be many next times. Thank you, Pat.

Ground Beef and Cabbage

Reviewed: Apr. 6, 2014
I went about this just a bit differently, I replaced the ground beef with Johnsonville fresh hot Italian sausage, which I removed from the casing. I browned the sausage and onion then added the Italian seasoning, 3 minced cloves of garlic, and my coarsely chopped cabbage. I cooked and stirred until the cabbage wilted then added the tomatoes and continued to cook until the tomatoes were heated through. I served this on a bed of wide egg noodles with a green salad and homemade biscuits. We like it, but the leftovers, which we had for lunch were really good. I believe the next time I will make it far enough in advance so I can refrigerate it to meld the flavors. Mr. Graham, I hope you like the liberties I took with your recipe.

Hot Crabmeat Dip

Reviewed: Apr. 6, 2014
This, as written was just ok, nothing special so I added about a tsp. of Srirachia and made crab and avocado quesadillas and they were a huge hit.

Karen's Rolled Sugar Cookies

Reviewed: Apr. 3, 2014
I followed the recipe exactly, but scaled it to 18 cookies. I did sift my flour before I measured the amount stated and I thought the dough was a bit too soft at room temperature, but that was easily remedied by keeping the unused portion in the fridge and then chilling it again before separating the cut outs . I was pleasantly surprised by how delicate and buttery they turned out. Oh, I did replace the vanilla extract with lemon, but that shouldn't have made any difference.

Shrimp and Asparagus with a Louisiana Twist

Reviewed: Mar. 28, 2014
Abstaining from meat on Friday during Lent is supposed to be a bit of a sacrifice but this was a definite treat. I have made similar dishes before but the small addition of heat sets this one apart. I had to make a few small changes to use what I had on hand. I used red onion instead of shallots and dried basil and cut the oil and butter back to 2 tbs each. Thank you for sharing, Chitimacha!

Basic Buttermilk Muffins

Reviewed: Mar. 27, 2014
This is a solid, basic recipe that lends itself beautifully to creativity. I added 1/2 cup of Craisins, 1/2 cup white chocolate chips and 2 tsp dried orange rind. I especially like the fact the muffin isn't too sweet so depending on what you add this could be a good option for breakfast. Thanks, DCKatie

Sausage and Asparagus Spaghettini

Reviewed: Mar. 26, 2014
This is a simple, solid recipe that is very easy to prepare and makes a beautiful presentation. My only change was to use bulk Italian sausage in place of link. Thanks, tipsuda!

Grandma Rita's Soft Butter Rolls

Reviewed: Mar. 24, 2014
I believe I was the first to make and review these when first posted as a personal recipe and here is my review: These are really good. I did everything in my stand mixer. I had to use quite a bit more flour, but I am at sea level and it is very, very humid here today. They still turned out so light and fluffy. I made 4 large hamburger buns, 6 medium hamburger buns and 6 dinner rolls. I put the 4 burger buns back in the oven to crisp them up a bit because I will be serving them with a rather wet sauce. The others I kept soft. I do believe this recipe will be my go to for hamburger buns from now on. Thank you, Lela, for sharing your grandmother's excellent recipe. 3/24/2014 I have made these rolls many times since Lela shared the recipe and they come out perfect each time.

Ashley and Whitney's Popcorn and Pretzel Sweet Snack Mix

Reviewed: Mar. 22, 2014
I love how all the flavors blend together. I used organic corn, which I popped myself (1/3 cup unpopped), which seemed to be a good amount.. My chocolate just did not want to melt nicely so I finally just mixed the softened chips in with the rest. When I looked at this recipe, I thought the kidlets would be the fans but the adults were far more enthused. I do have to say I probably would not have been rushing to make this without having the parchment to work on with what I expected to be melted chocolate. This is a fun recipe that I will make again and again.

Pork Carnitas with Cilantro Tomatillo Sauce

Reviewed: Mar. 9, 2014
First, I was so skeptical about the cooking method I was sure I'd have to make something else, but it worked very well. I had ordered chipotle powder specifically for this recipe, but they shipped me Pasilla powder. I used it any way and it was very flavorful. I was able to buy boneless loin of pork for a much better price than butt so I used that. My only issue was it took over two hours for the liquid to cook down. But I will make carnitas this way again. I couldn't find fresh tomatillos here so I used salsa verde I had put up last fall and mixed it with a bit of sour cream to tone down the spiciness. Thanks, Mazola, this is a nice recipe.

Real NY Jewish Rye Bread

Reviewed: Mar. 7, 2014
I live in an area of NY that is blessed with both Jewish delis and bakeries and this bread would be right at home in either. I free formed my loaf and baked it on my pizza stone. This recipe is a keeper. Thanks for sharing, Dad! 3/18/14 the potato flakes aren't strictly necessary, especially if you use bread flour rather than AP. It simply adds gluten to the recipe, making for a nice rise. Vital wheat gluten would also work. And the pickle juice doesn't have to be a specific type. I used the juice from a jar of bread and butter pickles, I have also used both white and cider vinegar. It only imparts the slightest of taste and is primarily used as a dough conditioner.

Creamy Avocado Pie

Reviewed: Mar. 5, 2014
This went together so easily. I did make a few changes I used lime juice instead of lemon and I used fat free Greek yogurt in place of sour cream. While most of the ingredients are healthy this is not a light dessert, it is rich and a little bit is satisfying. This will be making an appearance at many BBQs this summer. Thank you Doryce41!
