Angela's Awesome Enchiladas

Reviewed: Aug. 21, 2014
I made this recipe exactly as written and it turned out delicious. Everyone in the family loved them and my wife's aunt, who was visiting, said that they were the best enchiladas that she had ever had and demanded the recipe. You'll definitely like this easy, tasty recipe.

Fluffy Pancakes

Reviewed: Nov. 27, 2011
These pancakes were the best! Light and fluffy and the best pancakes that I've had in many years, including those at some specialty restaurants. I made them exactly according to the recipe (doubling the recipe) and the family gobbled them up as fast as they came off the griddle. These are now my favorite pancakes and I'll definitely be making them again!

Caramel Pecan Pie

Reviewed: Nov. 27, 2011
This pie was EXCELLENT! I made it as per the recipe with the exception of substituting 1/2c brown sugar for the white sugar. The pie turned out sublime - not overwhelmingly sweet like so many Pecan pie recipes (it was plenty sweet - don't get me wrong - but not completely overwhelming). I made this pie for Thanksgiving this year and now it is on the "must-have" list for next year. Thanks for a GREAT recipe!

Three Cheese Baked Pasta

Reviewed: Aug. 8, 2009
I made this the other night and stuck exactly to the recipie. The entire family loved it and I've got a few hard-to-please eaters. I'm definitely going to make this again, although I do plan on trying with just mozzarella to cut down on the cost a little bit (provalone is on the pricy side). I may try some other variations, but as-written the recipie is definitely a keeper!

Bubba's Jambalaya

Reviewed: Oct. 29, 2013
Wow! This recipe turned out spot-on for my family and received rave reviews all around (well, unless you count my oldest daughter who is against all things seafood on principle -- but I did see her get seconds so I think that she was complaining just to complain). The flavors came together spectacularly and the seasoning was just right for the family (I'm the only one that likes things with more kick). I ended up making the rice separately as I had some leftover from the night before that I wanted to use up in this dish. I also tossed in some shredded carrots along with the other veggies since I wanted to use them up. This made a great dinner meal and I'm looking forward even more to leftovers for lunch today now that the flavors have had more chance to blend. Thanks for a great recipe!

Fried Mozzarella Cheese Sticks

Reviewed: Dec. 19, 2008
As other reviewers have mentioned, I combined the starches into a single bowl. To prepare the sticks for frying, I double-dipped them to coat them sufficiently (egg, then starches, then egg, then starches). These turned out wonderfully and are a favorite of the family. One thing that I noted is that these are great when eaten with marinara sauce but when eaten plain are a little bland. If you like them plain, I definitely recommend spicing up the batter a bit. Excellent recipie!

Mexican Bean Salad

Reviewed: Aug. 21, 2014
I wasn't sure how this dish would turn out, having had experience previously with similar dishes, all of which rated "ho-hum" in my book. This dish, however, really surprised me. Other than cutting the oil, vinegar and sugar in half as suggested in many other reviews, coupled with allowing the beans to marinate for a day, I made the recipe as-written. The end-result was delicious and even my wife, who hates all things legume, admitted that it was very tasty and that it almost made her forget her dislike of beans. That in and of itself is a huge endorsement. I've made this recipe twice now and both times it has turned out terrific. This is now my go-to recipe any time that I need a good salad of this type for any event. Yum!

Roasted Garlic Cauliflower

Reviewed: Aug. 21, 2014
It's amazing what roasting can do to a vegetable, taking it from "ho-hum" to "wow!" I definitely recommend giving this a dish a try (or 2 or 3); it has become a staple in my regular meal rotation. The flavors make a wonderful side-dish to any number of meals and you'll find yourself wanting to have this dish again and again.

Baked Parmesan-Crusted Chicken

Reviewed: Sep. 24, 2013
Have made this recipe several times and it has always turned out great. A couple of times when I've been short of time I've used Italian bread crumbs rather than plain + herbs and it's turned out great. This is an incredibly simply recipe that is delicious and satisfying to the entire family.

Garlic Roasted Broccoli with Parmesan Cheese

Reviewed: Aug. 21, 2014
Yum! That one word about sums this up. What a simple, yet deliciously tasty dish. My only regret was that I hadn't made more -- at the end of dinner this dish had been completely polished off, leaving no leftovers.

Roast Potatoes

Reviewed: Sep. 24, 2013
Made these exactly as written and they turned out excellent. Since my wife likes them crispy I broiled them for a few minutes when they were done to crisp them up and they disappeared faster than I would have believed. This one is definitely a keeper!

Seven Layer Tex Mex Dip

Reviewed: Sep. 24, 2013
Yum! Having tried other similar dips I was expecting yummy goodness but not to the level that this recipe delivers. Seasoning the sour cream takes it up a notch and has made this my go-to recipe for layered dips. The entire family loved it!

Slow Cooker Chicken Taco Soup

Reviewed: Sep. 24, 2013
This recipe is, to put it simply, awesome. I've always made it with the homemade taco seasoning referenced by other reviewers so I can't say how it would taste with the packaged stuff from the grocery store. With the homemade stuff, it comes out delicious and has met with rave reviews every time that I've made it. I've made this 3 times now and the last time doubled the seasoning to kick things up a notch which was appreciated by all but two of my children who don't like spicy. I definitely recommend this recipe! Oh, and I put in 1 fewer chicken breasts than called for - as-written we felt that the quantity of chicken once shredded was a little much. If you like a meaty soup then you'll like it as-written; however, we like it better with a little less meat. Excellent recipe!!

Chicken Cordon Bleu II

Reviewed: Nov. 27, 2011
This dish turned out wonderful and was well worth the work. As with other reviewers, I strongly recommend doubling the sauce (I did). I also used chicken boullion in place of the wine. The dish turned out wonderful paired with the Mushroom Rice Pilaf (also on this site). Thank you for a tasty and relatively easy chicken dish!

Taco Seasoning I

Reviewed: Apr. 1, 2014
This seasoning is the best and I use it now all the time vs. store-bought stuff. I highly recommend that you give it a try. You can experiment with different kinds and amounts of pepper flakes or other ingredients to adjust the hotness to what your family likes. I make a big batch of this and keep it in a bottle in my spice rack for regular use. Thanks for a great recipe!

Bacon Ranch Chicken Skewers

Reviewed: Aug. 21, 2014
Make these with a quality thick-sliced bacon and you definitely will not be disappointed. The family gobbled these up and raved about them. I large amount of the flavor comes from the bacon so you'll definitely not want to skimp with a cheap or less flavorful variety here -- use quality ingredients and you'll definitely like the outcome. We'll definitely be making these again. It was great to have a different, yet scrumptiously delicious, option to grill. Thanks Chef John!

Grilled Yellow Squash

Reviewed: Sep. 16, 2012
This turned out to be excellent, at least to the opinion of those in the family that like squash. I followed the suggestion of another reviewer and brushed the finished squash with a little melted butter. The result was excellent!

Roasted Brussels Sprouts

Reviewed: Aug. 21, 2014
With this recipe I finally got my two girls and wife to all eat Brussels Sprouts and, what's more, like them! Seriously, this recipe hits it spot-on. I followed the recipe exactly and the results were amazing. Even if you don't think that you'd like Brussels Sprouts, give this recipe a try and I think that you'll be pleasantly surprised. And, if you like this veggie, you'll love this recipe!

Master Pizza Dough

Reviewed: Oct. 17, 2013
I've tried several pizza doughs lately in search of a keeper. This dough hits the mark with simplicity of preparation together with a good flavor. While there are fancier doughs out there, this one can't be beat for how easy it is to prepare and the good flavor that it has.

Thanksgiving Leftover Casserole

Reviewed: Feb. 6, 2011
This one is definitely a keeper. Made this after Thanksgiving and it was such a hit with everyone begging for more I made it again the next night and 2 nights after that. The kids can't get enough of it and my wife loves them too. I didn't change anything in the recipe and it came out awesome!
