Marzetti

Reviewed: Nov. 19, 2008
I love one dish recipes and this one is quick and tasty. In fact, it was easily converted to a 1 pot stovetop dish! Added approx 1 tsp paprika in lieu of bell pepper and 1 can crushed tomato plus 1/3 c milk in lieu of tomato soup (thought I had some in the pantry thus the improvising). Added 1 Tbs chopped garlic. Also used entire 16 oz bag of egg noodles. After browning beef & onions a/o peppers are sweated, add next 8 ingredients. Combine & simmer until heated through. Fold in cooked noodles. Sprinkle with cheese. Cover, reduce heat and cook until cheese is totally melted. Delish... Looking forward to leftovers! Thanks for sharing!

Seven Layer Taco Dip

Reviewed: Oct. 27, 2008
The cream cheese/sour cream layer sets this recipe apart from other seven layer dips. I prepared this the night before for tailgating and it held up beautifully in the fridge. I left out the lettuce & bell pepper and added canned green chilis and diced habenero pepper for extra punch. My friends devoured it! I like this better than store bought!

Habanero Hellfire Chili

Reviewed: Oct. 27, 2008
After reading the reviews for this recipe, I was excited try it for myself. The other "fans" were not exaggerating... This chili is incredibly delicious. Far and away the best I've ever tasted, perhaps the best soup-type dish I've ever tasted. Amazing depth of flavor. I followed the recipe to the letter except for the peppers. Heeding the advice of others, I reduced the peppers by 1/2. While my tailgating friends complained about the spicyness, all of them agreed the chili, although spicy, was not overwhelming or painful/torturous. The proportions of meat/beans/liquid can be altered, but I suggest trying "as is" before getting too creative. This recipe is a keeper, thanks for sharing!

Iowa Pork Steak

Reviewed: Sep. 8, 2008
Until tonight, I've only had pork steaks (pork butt steaks) on the grill w/ bbq sauce. This was a nice variation. Very good flavor! Was concerned about the dish being too oniony and salty, but it turned out great. Subbed fresh shrooms for canned. There was ALOT of sauce. I served over egg noodles but it was a tad too runny (possibly due to the fresh mushrooms). Next time I plan to add a couple of potatoes (wedged) to the casserole dish to absorb some of the liquidy goodness. Thanks for the recipe!

Mexican Corn on the Cob (Elote)

Reviewed: Sep. 5, 2008
Once you try corn on the cob this way, you will never want corn any other way. Delish! Recently, I didn't have the mexican white cheese and substituted shredded mozzerella. The flavor is pretty close as mozz is also a mild tasting cheese. Parm is too strong and overpowering, not even comparable to the sweet and creamy taste of this recipe... I'm drooling on my keyboard.

BLT Pasta Salad

Reviewed: Aug. 28, 2008
Everyone asks for the recipe! A few thoughts... Undercook the pasta so it is a bit firmer than al dente. Cherry tomatoes sliced in half don't get soggy and work great... Hidden Vly Ranch Buttermilk Recipe is great in this recipe. The flavors meld beautifully when made the night before serving. Also, I cook the bacon in the oven (at 350)on a foil-lined cookie sheet. It's much cleaner and faster than frying in a pan (and comes out straight too)! Lastly, The last time I made this dish, I forgot to buy an onion. I threw in deseeded coursely chopped cucumbers instead. It was a HUGE hit with my friends (and their kids). Thanks for sharing this recipe, it's a keeper!

Mahogany Chicken Wings

Reviewed: Aug. 19, 2008
I stumbled upon this recipe a few years ago. It's always a big hit at parties. In lieu of Heinz chili sauce, I now substitute an asian chili sauce (plastic jar with a green lid in the international aisle). The flavor from the molasses and the heat from the chilis is well balanced and "makes" the recipe... Fantastic!

Korean Sushi

Reviewed: Aug. 18, 2008
My mom brushes sesame oil, lightly salts then toasts the nori sheets over a gas burner. The toasted sheets were then quartered into small sheets and eaten as a "side". This process really brings out the flavor (sort of like toasting nuts). Her rolls are made with untoasted nori, bulgogi, egg, fish cake, spinach salad, pickled radish and sometimes julienned carrots or korean cucumber salad... I think the ingredients vary depending upon what is on hand or in season. This is a recipe that can be modified to suit your taste and to use up leftovers... Very versatile.

Balsamic Bruschetta

Reviewed: Aug. 18, 2008
So good! It reminds me of an old family tomato salad recipe we love. I combined fresh grated asiago cheese with the parm since I already had it on hand. A little trick my dad taught me is to season the tomato, drizzle EVOO to coat, then add the vinegar afterward. It helps prevent the oil slick/separation. Great recipe!

Pizza On The Grill I

Reviewed: Aug. 18, 2008
Tried this recipe this past weekend and it was a big hit with my friends! In lieu of the the recipe's sauce, I just used my homemade sauce I keep on hand. In addtion to the cheese, I used fresh tomato and basil from the garden... Margherita pizza is my fav! By the way, when brushing the grill grates, I substituted canola oil because it has a higher smoke point. Brushed the garlic infused EVOO for flavor per the recipes recomendation... Yum!
