Heavenly Hot Dog Sauce

Reviewed: May 26, 2009
This was very well received at the community BBQ/potluck I took it to yesterday. I used ground turkey instead of ground beef, so I added a couple Tbs of beef flavored Better Than Bouillon to make up for the lack of flavor. Also, I discovered that I only had about 1 teaspoon of chili powder, so I added a chipotle bouillon cube. This made it too spicy for the kids that would be attending the BBQ, so I added about 3 Tbs of tomato paste.....PERFECTION! I'll definitely make this again. UPDATE: I made this again, using ground beef this time. We didn't care for it as much as we did when I made it with the turkey, but it was still good. I ended up with about half of the recipe left over, so the next night I mixed it with some cooked rice and made stuffed bell peppers. It was REALLY good that way!!

Bread Machine Bagels

Reviewed: May 26, 2009
These were so good, they didn't last more than half an hour after I took them out of the oven! I made 6 bagels instead of 9, so I would have nice bakery sized bagels. I kneaded garlic powder into one, then topped it with minced garlic and cheddar cheese. On two others, I sprinkled kosher salt, on two others I sprinkled cheddar cheese, and I left the last one plain. Everyone loved them. I'll definitely make them again, but I think I'll boil them a tiny bit longer and add a bit of baking soda to the water to get an even chewier outside. Thanks for a great recipe!

Bacon Ranch Pea Salad

Reviewed: May 25, 2009
I love the pea salad they sell in the deli at my local grocery store, except for the fact that the bacon always seems rubbery. This was SOOOO much better! The only thing I'll do differently next time is I'll make fresh ranch dressing because the bottled stuff is too sweet. Thanks for a great recipe!

To Die For Blueberry Muffins

Reviewed: May 3, 2009
To use my 12-year-old daughter's words, "Another triumph!" I only had frozen blueberries, but they worked just great in this recipe. The streusel topping is so good and I was thrilled that it didn't call for brown sugar, because I am out! I actually got 12 decent sized muffins out of the recipe (my pan is a standard size 12-muffin pan). I'll definitely make these again!

Salsa Chicken

Reviewed: Apr. 28, 2009
Delicious! My 12-year-old daughter made this for dinner tonight, with a little coaching from me. I had her cut the chicken up into bite-sized pieces to make serving and eating it a bit easier which made the cooking time about 10 minutes shorter, but otherwise we followed the recipe exactly. We used the Taco Seasoning I recipe from here at AR instead of store-bought taco seasoning. I didn't have any sour cream to garnish it with, but I'll definitely make sure to have some next time we make this. Thanks for a new dinner added to our rotation!

Lemon Garlic Tilapia

Reviewed: Apr. 22, 2009
YUM! I used lime juice instead of lemon juice because we prefer lime, salted the fillets before drizzling the sauce over them (I sauteed all the sauce ingredients before topping the fish), and doubled the garlic. I followed other reviewers' suggestions and baked it at 400 degrees for about 12 minutes and it was perfect. I had to fight my younger daughter off of my portion after she had gobbled down her own and my older daughter said she'd love to have tilapia this way again. Thank you for a great recipe!

Artichokes

Reviewed: Apr. 22, 2009
I don't have a steamer basket, so I put extra water in the pan. I used minced garlic and added some lemon juice to the water as well. Mine also had to cook for about double the amount of time before the leaves pulled off easily and the fleshy part was soft enough. Very tasty with the butter and garlic. I usually only use lemon juice. Thank you for a new way to steam artichokes!

Kickin' Collard Greens

Reviewed: Apr. 19, 2009
WOW! I love collard greens, but I had never made them myself. This recipe is nearly PERFECT! I made a few small changes: I used a whole 12-ounce package of bacon, to encourage my kids to eat the greens (anything with bacon is a kid-magnet in my house). Because I used so much bacon, I omitted the olive oil and just used the bacon grease. I also added about a Tbs of honey and about 2 Tbs of apple cider vinegar to help cut the bitterness of the greens. After heating the liquid to a simmer, I transferred everything to my crock pot and cooked it on low for 6 hours. These greens are AMAZING! Thank you for making this California girl successful at cooking good Southern comfort food!

Banana Crumb Muffins

Reviewed: Apr. 18, 2009
These muffins are awesome! The crumb topping really makes them 5-star good. I made mini muffins and ended up with 34 of them! Even my macaw enjoyed one of these muffins. We'll definitely have them again and again. Thank you!

Herbed Chicken in Pastry

Reviewed: Apr. 14, 2009
This was really delicious! I made my own garlic herb cream cheese instead of using the store-bought stuff. I softened an 8-ounce brick of cream cheese then whipped it with 2 Tbs of milk and added minced garlic, salt and pepper, onion powder, and some dried herbs (parsley, thyme, basil), and some minced fresh rosemary. I cut the chicken into cubes and seasoned it with salt and pepper prior to sauteeing it. This made it easier to eat; we were able to pick them up and eat them, kind of like a Hot Pocket. I'll definitely make these again, but I'll double the amount of cheese in the filling next time, because it wasn't enough as-written.

Real Welsh Rarebit

Reviewed: Apr. 11, 2009
I've never had Welsh Rarebit before, so I don't know how it's supposed to taste, but this was very good! I didn't have any beer, so I used all milk as the description suggests. I needed a little extra salt and pepper on mine because I left out the hot pepper sauce (kids were eating, too). I sprinkled a little paprika on top for presentation, but next time I think I'll try a little cayenne instead. I served it over toasted, broken up bagels.

Italian Wedding Soup I

Reviewed: Apr. 8, 2009
Wow, I can't believe I forgot to review this recipe! I made this for a church function a couple weeks ago (doubling the recipe) and people were scraping the bottom of my crock pot to get the last little bits out! I substituted ground turkey for the ground beef because we don't eat ground beef. I also substituted spinach for the escarole, as the recipe description suggested was possible. Lastly, to make it a little more authentic, I used acini di pepe (tiny balls of pasta) instead of orzo. The only bad part about this recipe is the time it takes to roll all those tiny meatballs, but when people scrape the bottom of the pot because it's so good, it makes it worth the effort. Thanks for an awesome recipe!

Lemon Dill Salad Dressing

Reviewed: Apr. 6, 2009
I made this to top some salmon cakes for lunch today and it was perfect! I didn't have any buttermilk, so I subbed evaporated milk and a little bit of vinegar. I scaled the servings down to 1 since it was just for my lunch and it was just the right amount for my salmon cakes. I'll definitely make this again.

Cheese and Bacon Potato Rounds

Reviewed: Apr. 3, 2009
These were really delicious! I used olive oil instead of butter to make them a little healthier. I also used a little salt and pepper before baking and feel the potatoes would have been bland without it. I didn't have any green onions on hand and they were definitely missed, so I'll be sure to have them available next time. I'll definitely make these again and again. Thank you for a great, easy new way to fix potatoes!

Peach Cobbler Dump Cake I

Reviewed: Mar. 31, 2009
This was really good! I'm not usually a fan of peach desserts, but for some reason it sounded good today. I only had one can of cinnamon brown sugar peaches, so I mixed in some frozen unsweetened strawberries. Since I was using peaches that already had cinnamon in them, I omitted the cinnamon from the recipe. I tried to follow another reviewer's suggestion for grating the butter, but that didn't work so I just sliced it really thin and laid it evenly over the top of the cake mix. It was delicious! I topped it with whipped cream, but next time I think I want to try vanilla ice cream.

Pineapple Ham and Rice

Reviewed: Mar. 29, 2009
I paired this with "Kalua Pig in a Slow Cooker" from this site, so I omitted the ham from the recipe. The two were perfect together! I'll definitely make this recipe again with many different pork dishes. Thanks for a great recipe!

Kalua Pig in a Slow Cooker

Reviewed: Mar. 29, 2009
Absolutely delicious! I've never had real Kalua Pig before, but if this is even a close representation of what it tastes like, I can't wait to try it! I served this with "Pineapple Ham and Rice" from this site, omitting the ham from that recipe. They were perfect together! I also served it with green peas in browned butter sauce. Thank you for a GREAT recipe that I will make again many times!

Asparagus Cashew Rice Pilaf

Reviewed: Mar. 26, 2009
I was looking for something to do with rice and broccoli to go with my ginger sesame salmon. Someone on the Recipe Exchange suggested this one, subbing my broccoli for the asparagus. It was perfect! Even my 12-year-old daughter who "hates" rice gobbled it up.

Flourless Peanut Butter Cookies

Reviewed: Mar. 24, 2009
This recipe was recommended on the Recipe Exchange a little while ago and I couldn't believe that it would actually work, so I headed into the kitchen to try it. I made them as stated in the recipe, except I added about 3/4 cup of mini chocolate chips. Oh my goodness! The recipe really does work...and these are SO good!! Although the directions say this doesn't make very many, I ended up with 26 (2-inch) cookies. Thanks for a great, easy, quick cookie recipe!
