Terri's Sloppy Joes

Reviewed: Aug. 29, 2012
I was looking for my Sloppy Joe recipe in my recipe book and couldn't find it. Knowing that I had to turn to, I quickly looked up a Sloppy Joes recipe and I had all the ingredients on hand. I gave my son a spoonful to try right before putting it on a bun, and he gave me a huge thumbs up and said it was the best so far.! Enough said!

Simple Chicken Brine

Reviewed: Aug. 30, 2010
I have always wanted to try a recipe for "chicken brine" and this one looked easy and I had all the ingredients (or so I thought). I placed the one gallon of warm water in a big pot and added "regular" table salt (but only half of the 3/4 cup--I only did this because of what the other reviewers stated about using regular table salt). I thought I had kosher salt and since I did not, I had to substitute at the last second. I added the sugar, soy sauce and olive oil and proceeded with the rest of the recipe. I allowed the whole chicken to sit in the brine for 4 hours and then I drained it, rinsed off the chicken and just placed it in a pot with a lid in the refrigerator overnight until dinner time the next evening. The chicken stayed nice and moist even in the pot overnight. I roasted the chicken in my rotisserie the next evening and just for an experiment I did not add anything else to the skin of the bird. When the chicken was finished cooking, I took it out of the rotisserie and let it "sit" for 5 minutes....when I went to take off the twine that was holding the bird together in the rotisserie, the wings fell completely off and the the drumstick bones fell out with "no meat" was so completely moist and tender!! My husband and kids were so impressed and I was so excited to say it was a brine recipe from "allrecipes". You have to try this recipe! I will never cook a chicken again without first "brining" it!

Gumbo Style Chicken Creole

Reviewed: Aug. 28, 2010
This is my first ever attempt at making a gumbo. Boy, was my family blown away!!!! My 13 year old son took 2 bites of this (over white rice) and says to me, "mom this is a keeper...if you ever get rid of this recipe, I will never talk to you again!" He scarfed this down so fast! I added Creole Sausage in small slices and I cooked some chicken thigh meat and added that (since that was all I had in the freezer). I added 1 small yellow bell pepper, 1 small green bell pepper (both from my garden). I omitted the mushrooms as others have done. This was all served over white rice. This is a must-try recipe!!!

Pasta Pomodoro

Reviewed: Aug. 15, 2010
If I could give this more stars, I would! This is soooo good!!! I have a vegetable garden growing outside my back door and I cut roma tomatoes and basil...I used 8 ounces of dry spaghetti because that was all I had. I used minced garlic from the jar and I only had boullion cubes on I used that instead of a can of chicken broth. At the end I added about 20 raw shrimp and let that cook in the sauce until pink. Then I added about 2 T. of heavy cream to the was absolutely the best!! It is so good you could serve it to guests! You must give this recipe a try!
