Fried Rice Restaurant Style

Reviewed: Mar. 10, 2013
This is a winner! It tastes delicious and just like take out fried rice, but just as important (ok, almost as important, taste is always #1) it is quick and so very easy. I cook my rice in the microwave. By the time it's done, I've pretty much finished up the rest of dinner and then finish the rice. I don't even bother with the step that calls for cooking the carrots and peas separately, just throw them in my skillet (frozen, right out of the bag) a minute or so before I scramble the egg. Once, I had some extra chopped onion and added that to the skillet and it was excellent. I do think the sesame oil is a must if you want a truly authentic flavor. This is definitely going to become a regular in our dinner rotation!

Baked Salmon II

Reviewed: Aug. 31, 2010
This was fantastic! I only had time to marinade the salmon for about 25 minutes, but it still had great flavor. I ended up baking it for about 35 minutes at 350 and it came out great. I'll definitely make this again!

Taco Seasoning I

Reviewed: Jan. 23, 2010
After making this simple, inexpensive and flavorful seasoning, I feel silly for buying packets all these years. I didn't add red pepper flakes--I'm not a fan of major spice, so I didn't even have them in my spice cabinet to add had I wanted to! I also added a bit more onion and garlic powder. While making this, I consolidated two half-used jars of basil into one, and now store my taco seasoning in the remaining empty. It will be a staple of my spice/seasoning collection--thanks!

BBQ Pork for Sandwiches

Reviewed: Nov. 29, 2009
So good, and so easy! I followed the recipe fairly closely. My only change was to use a Boston Butt instead of the ribs. I cooked it on high high in my crockpot for 4 hours, then transferred it to my dutch oven where I shredded it, removed any excess fat, and mixed in my fave bbq sauce (Sweet Baby Ray's). After that I put it in the fridge til the next day, when I warmed it in the oven at 350 for 1/2 hour. I served it on rolls with cole slaw, and it was a huge hit.

White Peach Sangria

Reviewed: Nov. 9, 2009
I had to change the recipe up a little bit to work with what I had, but it was still fantastic. I'm certain that the original recipe is delicious too. I used a bottle of white zin, peach schnapps (instead of peach vodka), the lemonade concentrate, no sugar, a bag of frozen peaches, and a can of lemon-lime soda. The results were delicious and refreshing (and potentially very dangerous!) Everyone, from my Sister in Law who rarely drinks to my Brother in Law who is a "beer man", loved this. Here in Florida, this is a perfect year round drink. Thanks!

Easy Iced Coffee

Reviewed: May 9, 2009
This is a fantastic recipe I see myself using every morning! It is just too hot for hot coffee, so this is the perfect way to get your caffeine fix. Generally, I am not a fan of instant coffee, but it works for this recipe. I used Splenda and skim milk, and it was still perfectly delicious. I've also jazzed it up with french vanilla creamer and chocolate syrup. Thanks for a great, quick, money-saving recipe!
