Gavin II's Edible Sand

Reviewed: Nov. 24, 2013
What I liked the most about this recipe is how budget friendly it is. All the recipes online wanted toasted coconut which was way too fancy for sand that was basically serving as a decoration for my son's Finding Nemo party. Everyone couldn't get over how much this looked like real sand!!! People were putting it on top of their cake and ice cream once they heard it was edible. Tasty and esthetically pleasing! Great recipe!

Slow Cooker Pulled Pork

Reviewed: Dec. 6, 2012
I didnt notice the root beer adding any flavor. Was hoping this recipe would knock my socks off, not so much. I'm going to be nice and give it a three star, where as most people seem to either give 5 or 1 stars. Im just going to say this recipe didnt move me and leave it at that.

Slow-Cooker Chicken Tortilla Soup

Reviewed: Dec. 6, 2012
AMAZING...with a few mods First, i used a 28 oz can of enchie sauce, i used mild and with the other spices in there it still had a kick. (using more enchie sauce might work for the people who complained it was too watery, mine was not watery at all) Second- I only used half of a medium onion Fourth- i prob used 2-2.5 lb of chicken to make it nice and hearty Third- another thing that prevented mine from becoming too watery is i added the water last, i only used two cups of water and added one chicken bouillon cube, essentially omitting the water from the broth, yet still giving it the broth flavor I cooked my chicken first, mainly bc i was pressed for time and wasnt sure if i could get this done in the alloted time. Threw all the ingredients in and turned it on high. Prob had it cooking for about 4-5 hours. I cubed up some avacado, shredded some cotija cheese(a mexican cheese), squirted fresh lime juice, and used the crispy corn tostadas instead of baking my own and YUMMMMMM!!! In the end, a really healthy(if youre not on a low sodium diet) and protein packed meal!! This will definitely be in the regular mix of meals. Super easy to make and packed with flavor(i am a very picky eater, so take my word this is a great recipe) Notes: I would prob omit the salt next time since there is so much salt in broth and enchie sauce and the whole tomatoes. I prob wouldnt spend the money for one bay leaf, not sure how much that would change the taste.

Cranberry Sauce I

Reviewed: Nov. 20, 2012
I am always thrilled and eager to try a recipe thats straight to the point!! 3 ingredients, YES!!! When I read the recipe I was hoping for a similar sauce to the honey baked ham company's orange walnut cranberry sauce, so i added a cup of chopped walnuts(keep them big, not too small) and it was pretty much a dead ringer from what I remember!! Super easy recipe, very delicious, I had no issues with the "gelling", I read one review about someone using a potato masher, not necessary. I used the plastic spoon(one safe for cooking with) that I was using to stir the ingredients with,I just took the back of the spoon and mashed it up, but not entirely, its nice to have some chunky cranberries in there, but you could easily mash it all if desired!!! THANK YOU THANK YOU!!! Next time I will try using half brown sugar half white like another reviewer suggested, and maybe the grand marnier, but this recipe rocks as is. Also I used a no pulp OJ, not sure if anyone has tried it with pulp.

Angela's Awesome Enchiladas

Reviewed: Apr. 3, 2011
AMAZING!!! I followed the recipe EXACTLY as is and took this to my work for a going away pot luck, my point being that about 10 different people tried these and were blown away and asked for the recipe. Okay, so I did change one thing, and that was using smaller tortillas so i could have several smaller enchiladas instead of 5 big ones. Either way, yummmmm yummmm! Made these twice in one week. MY ADVICE: Cook the chicken pieces whole and it does save you time shredding bigger pieces, and while the whole pieces are cooking, you can prep everything else. It literally cut my total time in half.
