Mexican Stuffed Peppers

Reviewed: Nov. 20, 2014
It took me making another Mexican type stuffed pepper from this site to realize how much I appreciated this one and the simplicity of it. There is a lot of flavor here with little effort. I don't feel it serves as a main dish as some of the others do but it makes for a perfect tasty side dish to serve with your Mexican food. I plan on making this one again soon.

Mexican Chicken Stuffed Peppers

Reviewed: Nov. 20, 2014
There was a lot going on in this recipe but oddly enough the flavors worked okay. What didn't work for me was the 2 hours and 10 minutes of time invested just to end up with a so so dish. Also, my chicken was nice and tender after it simmered in the beer but after the total cook time of 1 hour 50 minutes, it was completely dried out. I think this recipe has potential but as written I cannot give it more than 3 stars. Sorry.

Popa's Simple White Chili

Reviewed: Nov. 15, 2014
I grew up on white beans and still prefer them over red and black to this day. I am also a big fan of green chilies so I knew with a quick glance of the ingredients that this was going to be a darn good chili. It seems a lot of people translate green chilies and green enchilada sauce into "too hot" but that really isn't the case in this recipe. Made as written this recipe was super simple, packed full of flavor, fuss free, and perfect for days you don't have much time to spend in the kitchen. Bonus is that it is friendly enough for the entire family yet more heat can easily be added to the individual bowl of anyone desiring more spiciness. Thanks for the great recipe bd.weld!

Crispy Chipotle Roasted Smashed Potatoes

Reviewed: Nov. 9, 2014
I used baby golds and my oh my these were tasty! I tried to take a short cut by sticking the oil/chipotle mix in my mini food processor instead of digging out my blender but it never fully blended (my fault) that way. You could really taste the richness of the corn oil in this recipe and the amount of heat was perfect for us. I will be making these often...YUM

Slow Cooker Chicken Pozole Blanco

Reviewed: Nov. 6, 2014
I've had Pozole numerous times but it never has done much for me. I've always thought it was because I'm not a huge fan of hominy but there is something about this recipe that changed my opinion on the matter. This was EXCELLENT! The only change I made is that I used the last of my Poblano pepper from the garden but it would have been just as good with jalapeno. This is one that needs no tweaking just don't forget the toppings. This will be my go to Pozole recipe from now on!

Slow Cooker Chicken Tinga Tacos

Reviewed: Nov. 5, 2014
Tinga is one of our favorites and this one is the best on this site. There is only one flaw in this recipe and it is a big one in my opinion that might detour people from trying this and that is the "ready in" 10 hours 20 minutes. This has got to be a typo so please do not let it fool you. Plan for 4 hours max because this is all you need. Don't skimp on the toppings and I promise that you won't be disappointed!

Salted Caramel Nut Brittle

Reviewed: Nov. 4, 2014
Hubby said 5 stars hands down and clean-up was a breeze using the Reynolds Non Stick Foil. The entire sheet of candy lifted right off of the pan without a hiccup. I am 100% sold on this foil. The only problem I ran into was that if you let it sit for two minutes then it gives it too much time to set up and your nuts will not stick properly. I recommend having your nuts chopped and prepared ahead of time and then sprinkling them on immediately. This had such a rich buttery toffee flavor and the topping could easily be changed up with whatever nuts you preferred or had on hand.

Easy Flank Steak Fajitas

Reviewed: Nov. 2, 2014
I added a few slices of orange bell to the mix for extra color but other than than I made as written. This recipe is super easy and one that would be perfect for a weeknight meal. I marinated the meat for the full hour and was surprised at how well the flavor took. You could taste all of the ingredients in every bite. My only complaint is that 30 minutes cook time on the meat was too long by the time you let it rest. The next time I make this I will only cook it for 20 minutes and then let it rest for a bit. With that being said, this recipe is super easy and sure to please.

Boiled Peanuts

Reviewed: Oct. 29, 2014
I added a few drops of crab boil to the water and just like the most helpful review mentioned, I turned them off after 2 hours and then let them sit in their brine and tested them every 30 minutes until they were too my liking. Simple recipe and one you can add things to suit your liking.

Chrissy's Tangy Seafood Dip

Reviewed: Oct. 29, 2014
I actually forgot about the reviews and made as written with 2 tablespoons of Old Bay and Worcestershire and I didn't find it overwhelming. The only change I made was to add a can of shrimp so I'm not sure if that made a difference or not. It was very good straight out of the oven and although I found the ingredients to be an odd combo, they worked nicely together.

Big Ed's Cajun Shrimp Soup

Reviewed: Oct. 29, 2014
I'll admit that I was not planning on loving this soup but it went well with what I was making so I went for it. WOW! What a nice surprise. I made as written and it was loaded with flavor. If I had to change one thing, I think I would add celery next time for some extra crunch and color but not necessary for sure. This one is a keeper!

Beer Pulled Pork

Reviewed: Oct. 26, 2014
Made as written and I really like the flavor the beer gave this. My only complaint is that it came out a little dry compared to my go to recipe. I think it would better slow cooked in a crockpot with an additional beer.

Spicy Baked Beans

Reviewed: Oct. 26, 2014
My husband thought these were great as written and I'm sure most would agree. I personally would have liked less sugar and more jalapeno. This is a recipe that can be easily adapted to suite your family's taste which is always a bonus. Thanks for sharing your recipe KSWRIGHT!

Hearty Chicken Vegetable Soup III

Reviewed: Oct. 20, 2014
I planned to change two things right off the top which were red potatoes in place of the white (hate peeling potatoes and typically leave the skin on red) and then subbing some of the water/bouillon for chicken broth. Somehow though the fresh green beans got left off of my list so I saved the frozen corn I bought for another day and just used a frozen corn, green bean, pea, and carrot melody instead.I also found some mushroom stems and pieces in the fridge that I threw in at the last second. This recipe is so universal as to what you have on hand or things that need used up. My only complaint is that the base was extremely thin. My advice is to saute the veggies for a few minutes and then add a couple of teaspoons of flour to the mix before adding the can peas/hominy and other liquids for a bit of a thicker more rich broth.

How to Make Country Gravy

Reviewed: Oct. 20, 2014
I am gravy challenged and always have been and this turned out perfect for me. I used Johnsonville breakfast sausage and I wouldn't have it any other way. Hubs and I don't typically care for breakfast sausage due to the overwhelming flavor of sage but Johnsonville was the bomb hands down. This will be my go to white gravy. How can you go wrong with bacon after all???

Basil Chicken Milanese

Reviewed: Oct. 20, 2014
Perfect as written but if you are in a hurry I think substituting Italian bread crumbs for the first 5 ingredients would work just fine too. This is a keeper!

Slow Cooker Black-Eyed Pea and Sausage Soup

Reviewed: Oct. 19, 2014
I hate to give such a low rating but I made exactly as written and this lacked flavor. I thought for sure that the 5 bouillon cubes and pound of sausage would make this extremely salty but if fact it was quite the opposite. I make a lot of soup and I never could put my finger on what this was lacking. Adding herbs would be a must if I ever attempted this again and I think using chicken broth in place of the cubes and water might have helped too. This was super simple and I think it has potential but it definitely needs some tweaking in my opinion.

Chef John's Classic Beef Stroganoff

Reviewed: Oct. 19, 2014
I too substituted stew meat for the chuck roast and sour cream for the creme fraiche. The meat was melt in your mouth tender and the only issues I had is that the sauce didn't thicken enough but that was an easy fix. As written this was delicious but I added a generous sprinkle of Hungarian paprika and that put it over the top.

Queso (Cheese) Dip

Reviewed: Oct. 12, 2014
I made exactly as written (substituted half and half for the heavy whipping cream as recipe submitter mentioned) and this turned out better than any cheese dip I have ever made with Velveeta. The roasted peppers is what sets this one apart from other cheese dips so I recommend not skipping this step. I think any combo of hot peppers you prefer or had on hand would work just fine. This one is a keeper and one I will make often during football season!
