Salsa II

Reviewed: Mar. 28, 2013
Excellent flavor. Sweet at first taste and then just enough heat to follow it up. Jars have kept VERY WELL over the winter. This will be my go to recipe this next harvest.

Easy Focaccia

Reviewed: Mar. 28, 2013
The focaccia puffs up quite a bit while baking. Mine ended up too thick for a panini but the flavor was GREAT. Next time, I'll just roll them out thinner.

Caramel Frosting V

Reviewed: Jul. 15, 2011
Very good! The timing is perfect and the frosting doesn't taste like burnt sugar! Thank goodness! I did add additional whipping cream and powdered sugar when whipping the frosting after it cooled for 1.5 hrs in the refrigerator without stirring. The color is beautiful & it's made a great spreadable (not hard) frosting. Thanks for the recipe! It's great on top of my Caramel Apple Pie. :0)

Cake Batter Ice Cream

Reviewed: Jul. 4, 2011
Great idea! This tasted super similar to Cold Stone Creamery's version. I have to admit, we ran out of time and had to cheat....we took a half gallon of vanilla ice cream and mixed (in batches) just the cake mix to taste. Then we stuck the glasses in the freezer to refreeze. (It got pretty melted by the time you had it mixed well). Big hit from the whole group tonight! Thanks!

Broiled Tilapia Parmesan

Reviewed: Jul. 1, 2011
Very good! I grilled these and instead of the Parmesan setting up into a crust, it stayed as a really delicious butter. Thanks! I even used some of the extra butter on asparagus as a side.

Best Toffee Ever - Super Easy

Reviewed: Jul. 1, 2011
Love it! I didn't even have a candy thermometer, but with the other reviewers suggestions I could completely eyeball it and do a cold water test to create perfect toffee! I'm still working on making the perfect milk chocolate topping, since the plain chocolate chips have a dark chocolate taste. Next time I'll add more sugar and milk when I melt my chocolate. Thanks!

Fried Mozzarella Cheese Sticks

Reviewed: Jun. 28, 2011
These are wonderful! I fried these in just enough olive oil to cover the bottom of my little sauce pot and continued to cook and turn them. I froze them for just a few minutes to make sure the cheese was cool and wouldn't prematurely melt! I also added a splash of buttermilk to the egg for half the water as well as a healthy shake of garlic powder into the breading mix. Very tasty & a fun side for my grilled pizza tonight! Thanks!

Pizza On The Grill I

Reviewed: Jun. 28, 2011
Very good! This was really fun to make and I rolled my dough as thinly as I could so it cooked VERY quickly 2-3 minutes per side over low heat and got SO CRISPY! It was such a great thin crust...almost like a cracker. I also divided my dough in half and made two smaller pizzas so that it was easier to flip with a spatula underneath and tongs on top to guide it. I did accidently drop one of my pizzas back onto the grate while flipping which then made for 2 individual sized pizzas. I piled on sauce, as many pepperoni & sausage bits as I could fit and then covered the top in thinly shredded pizza cheese. The only sad thing was that the cheese didn't melt all the way before I needed to take the pizza off...but it smelled & tasted great!

Praline Pecans

Reviewed: Jun. 23, 2011
These are the best candied pecans I've ever made. Thanks for the great recipe! If you add additional water, then it becomes a glaze, but I don't recommend it...although the taste is the same the pecans aren't as crunchy.

Bacon-Wrapped Asparagus

Reviewed: Jun. 23, 2011
Big hit. We sprinkled it with Lawry's seasoned salt and bunched the asparagus into bundles of 5 (small asparagus). Thanks!

Grilled Fish Steaks

Reviewed: Jun. 23, 2011
Our new favorite way to make fish! Thanks! I didn't have any basil, so I had to sub with Italian seasoning and even that was good!

Key West Chicken

Reviewed: Jun. 22, 2011
This recipe was really bland. I also thought the soy sauce was a little overpowering. Even the presentation just looked like a plain chicken breast. My husband didn't like it at all. :0/

Meatball Nirvana

Reviewed: Jun. 20, 2011
Not as much flavor as I would have liked. I'll have to double the garlic for sure. This recipe is a great start though...thanks!

Lemon Pepper Grilled Chicken

Reviewed: Jun. 15, 2011
Needs a little tweaking, but this has more "body" than the Lemon Pepper Chicken that I was already making. Still a bit tart with the lemon flavor for me. Next time I'll use a little less lemon or adjust my marinade time.

Grilled Corn on the Cob

Reviewed: Jun. 15, 2011
These were great! Super simple. Next time I'll let the corn soak in sugar water to amp the sweetness of the corn. I grilled the corn without foil in the corn shucks. I would also recommend shucking the corn outside after grilling with tongs (so you don't burn your hands) and so the charred pieces don't get all over your kitchen! Another reviewer was right, the corn silk comes right off easily after grilling! Thanks for the great recipe!

Arkansas Green Beans

Reviewed: Jun. 14, 2011
Definite keeper! Since it's too hot to turn the oven on, I just combined everything in a saucepan & warmed while stirring to coat and then served. Thanks for the great recipe!
