Paul's Southern California BBQ Sauce

Reviewed: Jul. 1, 2011
This sounded really good, so I followed the recipe exactly, with the exception of chili powder & cayenne pepper. (Many family members with tummy issues!). The first & most overwhelming "problem" was the strong vinegar smell & taste. It was too acidic. So to cut through the acidity, I added about a cup or slightly more of brown sugar. It was still too sour from the vinegar, so I added about 1/4 cup honey. I also added about 2 Tblsp. Heinz chili sauce, about 2 Tblsp. Liquid Smoke, & 1 Tblsp. Wocestershire sauce. I simmered it for about 15 minutes, but it wasn't thickening very well. So I added a Tsp. of corn starch in about 2 Tblsp. cool water, then added it to the sauce. That's what it took to achieve a final product I was happy with, that wasn't too sour from vinegar, & my family was thrilled with! I used shredded roast beef right into the pan & let it caramelize a bit, then placed it in buns for BBQ sandwiches! Everyone raved about the final product! Thanks for the recipe, even though I modified it, it was a great outline for me to start with!

Cola Roast Turkey

Reviewed: Jan. 7, 2011
I roasted a turkey using this recipe last night! My family & I were very happy with the results! This was probably one of the most tender & juicy turkeys we've ever had! In addition, the beautiful golden brown color made for a great presentation! I followed the recipe as written & wouldn't change a thing! Thanks for posting this recipe! It will be a "family tradition" from now on!

G-ma's Rice

Reviewed: Oct. 4, 2009
Living in Phoenix, we have had a chance to try MANY mexican / spanish rice dishes! However, we feel this recipe really captures the "true" taste of how it's done! I used real minced garlic, slightly less pepper, and the exact amount of ground cumin. Be careful to not place more cumin than recipe calls for as it would be too strong a flavor & overtake the rice. You can add salt to taste per individual taste after it's cooked. We have declared this as our favorite family rice side dish! Thanks for sharing the recipe!
