Santa Fe Stew

Reviewed: Sep. 7, 2014
I did enjoy this recipe but there is one major flaw in it. The recipe title says stew yet directions do not state to rinse and drain the beans and corn. The tomatoes and broth yield plenty of juice so if you do not rinse and drain the beans and corn then you end up with soup and not stew. Rule of thumb...always rinse black beans. They will muddle up and give an unpleasant color to anything you are fixing if you do not. As far as the rest of it goes, drain the rest of your beans and corn if you want stew...leave some of their juices if you want soup.

Not Thousand Island Dressing

Reviewed: Jul. 27, 2014
Love me some Reuben's but have always disliked Thousand Island dressing due to the sweet relish. I whipped this up while my corned beef was slow cooking and you talk about an awesome Reuben! Hats off to you Mike Harvey. This sauce would be good on many different sandwiches and one I will use often.

Easy Restaurant-Style Buffalo Chicken Wings

Reviewed: Apr. 14, 2014
I didn't find a tablespoon of butter to be nearly enough for our liking. I ended up adding 4 tablespoons (1/4 cup). Recipe says it serves 6 but this was just about the right amount for hubby and I so keep that in mind. These were good but who doesn't love a classic wing? I recommend making as is to start off and only add more butter to the sauce if you see fit. I'm already looking forward to making these again!

Blue Cheese Ball

Reviewed: Apr. 14, 2014
I personally cannot stand blue cheese and am not a fan of cream cheese either. I made this for hubby and my 5 star rating is based off of his feedback. I made as written except that I used pecans instead of the walnuts (his preference). So simple to prepare and with few ingredients yet packed full of flavor. This one is a keeper for the blue cheese lovers!

Fuzzy's Chipotle Flank Steak

Reviewed: Mar. 30, 2014
Not for the faint in heart indeed! HOT HOT HOT! I recommend using one can of chipotles to the 2 pounds of beef. Still super spicy but manageable. I like hot but as written this is just too much.

Chicken on a Stick

Reviewed: Mar. 23, 2014
I made my own tempura batter using the Crispy Shrimp Tempura recipe on this site and I threaded my chicken separate from the veggies just in case it ended up taking longer than the veggies to cook. Great as written if you have a sauce to dip it in but if not, I recommend adding some dry rub to your chicken to give it more flavor. The possibilities of this recipe are endless and I just might try it with shrimp next time. Thanks for sharing LOVE2COOK2!

Marinated Vegetable Medley

Reviewed: Mar. 23, 2014
Made exactly as written and this is one I will make often in the summer. The only change I plan on making the next time is to use fresh herbs in place of the dried. This recipe screams summer picnics!

Spicy Catalina Swai

Reviewed: Mar. 23, 2014
This was my first time trying Swai and I am so glad this is the recipe I chose. I was very hesitant because Catalina dressing is a little too sweet for me on a salad but pair it with the other goodies in this recipe and slap it on fish and you have yourself a winner. It is rather spicy though so if you are sensitive to that you might want to leave out the crushed pepper flakes or cut back on the Sriracha. Can't wait to try this one on catfish this summer!

Corned Venison

Reviewed: Mar. 23, 2014
I followed this recipe to a T up to the cooking method. I chose to cook mine in a slow cooker instead of the boiling method but only to play it safe. I have never boiled corned beef and didn't want to risk not liking it that way after I had spent 5 days "babysitting" it. This is an excellent way to use up venison that is taking space in the freezer. I still prefer beef over venison but that goes for all recipes and not just this one. If you are a hunter and you like corned beef, give this one a try. You won't be disappointed.

Fried Creole Catfish

Reviewed: Mar. 7, 2014
I made one change. I am very experienced in frying catfish and have made it coated many different ways and have come to the conclusion that I do not like it double dipped. I like a thin cornmeal/flour combo and so that is the one change I made due to personal preference. I am still giving this a 5 star rating because I am positive it would turn out great as written for the majority of people out there that like the thicker coated fish. If you are sensitive to spice then I recommend leaving the cayenne out of your flour mixture. This was a great way to use fish and one I will make again. Thanks JeffB227!

Yummy Cheese Fries

Reviewed: Mar. 2, 2014
The only thing I did differently is that I always bake my bacon in the oven instead of frying it in a skillet on the stove. The only reason for the 4 stars instead of 5 is that if you use the full 28 ounces of fries then you would need more than a cup of cheese and three slices of bacon in my opinion. To each their own though so add as little or as much to suit your tastes. Next time I plan on adding some green onions to the top and dipping in buffalo sauce. Great recipe and easy to adapt to suit your style.

Christmas (Red, White and Green) Salsa

Reviewed: Mar. 2, 2014
I made this to use as a topping for my carne asada tacos and hubby raved about it. We typically just top them with onion, cilantro, and lime but the addition of radish worked very nicely. I have to be honest here and admit that I scaled way back on the ginger and replaced some of it with cumin seeing how I was using this for Mexican food. I am tickled pink to be the first reviewer. I cannot say enough good things about this recipe and I plan to make it often. Thanks for sharing sueb!

Authentic Polish Pickle Soup (Zupa Orgorkowa)

Reviewed: Mar. 2, 2014
I am assuming the directions call for cooking the pickles separately is because the pickles themselves are not intended to go in the finished product but the directions were not real clear there so I didn't know? I am a huge fan of the Dill Pickle Soup recipe from this site and I chose to keep the pickles in my soup so I just threw them in with the veggies in the last 15 minutes of cooking which saved me a step. I also chose to throw in some chopped potatoes at that time because I was wanting to stretch the pot out. My only complaint is that the sour cream mixture starts separating once the soup is not being stirred and sits for a minute or two. That gives it an unappealing look even though the taste is delicious. For my leftovers I added a dash of Hungarian Paprika just to change it up a little and that worked nicely in there as well. As written this is a good tasting soup but I do think the addition of potatoes added to the overall end result.

RITZ Push-Cart Hot Dog Bites

Reviewed: Mar. 2, 2014
What a unique little treat these were and so easy to prepare. My onions didn't sauce up as much as some I see in the pictures but they were perfect for us just the way they turned out. This one is a keeper. Thanks Lillian!

Greek Style Potatoes

Reviewed: Mar. 2, 2014
On the weeknights, I do not have 2 1/2 hours to get dinner on the table. I read a good deal of the reviews and I decided to boil my potatoes in chicken stock first to speed up the cooking time and also to add more flavor. By doing that, I obviously had to cut way back on oil and the water but I left everything else the same. These were simple to prepare and paired nicely with my Greek Marinated Kabobs from this site. Thanks for sharing!

Marinated Greek Chicken Kabobs

Reviewed: Mar. 2, 2014
Who would have thought using yogurt in a marinade? This was excellent. I made two minor changes which were so minor that they had no impact on the rating. First is that I threaded my meat and veggies on separate skewers so that I could control the cooking time on each. I prefer my veggies crisp tender and knew they would be overcooked for my liking if kept on as long as the chicken. The other change is that I added fresh mushrooms with my onion and bell peppers simply for the fact I had them on hand and I liked the idea of adding another texture to the finished dish. The feta did seem to get lost in the marinade so my one suggestion is to save it until the end and crumble it over the cooked chicken. This was an excellent recipe with tons of flavor. Thanks for sharing!

Potato Crunchy Tenders

Reviewed: Feb. 16, 2014
These were down right delicious and super easy! If you have an electric fryer you can drop them in there making it even easier. The potato breading has so much more flavor than plain old flour. I see no excuse for fast food drive-in chicken mc nuggets which contain who knows what in them when there is such a recipe to be had. Give a try. You won't be disappointed.

Jan's Jalapeno Popper Pizza

Reviewed: Feb. 16, 2014
I made two different pizza's for the SuperBowl this year with this being one of them and it was a huge hit. I made exactly as written and would not change a thing. The onions sauteed in the bacon drippings gave it such a nice smokey flavor. I was rushed and didn't take the time to take the seeds out of the peppers as I normally would have but the cheese and sour cream tamed it down enough that I didn't really need to. This was delish! The boys at the party devoured this before I was even able to take a picture which means I will just have to make it again soon :) Thank you for sharing Jan. I miss seeing you and some of the others around these parts. I plan on "popping" in more often.

Touchdown Pizza

Reviewed: Feb. 16, 2014
Made this for the SuperBowl and it was a big hit. My intentions were to photograph an individual slice of it but the boys devoured it before I even had the opportunity leaving me nothing but the whole pie in my nappy well used pizza pan. I'm not a fan of the blue cheese but even I tolerated it in the leftover scraps I was able to rummage up. 12 minutes of baking time kept the celery nice and crisp which added a whole other texture element that suited the dish perfectly.This pizza is spicy spicy (as a buffalo pizza should be) so if you are sensitive to heat you might want to cut back a little or thin it down with ranch dressing. LOVED it Saveur and cannot wait to try it again. The recipe title couldn't be more perfect for this is the ultimate football food!

Green Chile Chicken and Rice Soup

Reviewed: Feb. 16, 2014
Giving this a 4 star based off of how easy it was and that it used staple ingredients. I do however feel it could use some jazzing up. It has a Southwest/Tex-Mex feel to it to me and so next time I might add some beans, corn, cilantro, black olives, and top with tortilla chips. Regardless, I will make this again and play around with more ingredients. Thanks for sharing!
