Mexican Rice II

Reviewed: Sep. 19, 2013
I wish I could give this six stars--this is why: There's a Mexican joint around where I grew up that has rice EXACTLY like this. Now older and in the military, I rarely get to eat that delicious side dish. This recipe is 99% dead on. I make it any time my family has Mexican food. Now if I could only reproduce their salsa...

Quick and Easy Pizza Crust

Reviewed: Sep. 19, 2013
I use this recipe any time I make a pizza, but I use a mixture of white, wheat, and spelt flours to get a grainy, nutty taste, plus I like the variety. I even toss a generous amount of oregano in there, and sometimes even cheese. Finally, before baking, I coat the exposed crust at the edges with a bit of olive oil so that it crisps up in the oven. Gives it a nice texture and color.

Fried Dill Pickles

Reviewed: Sep. 19, 2013
I'm in the military, stationed in Hawaii, and it can be hard to find some of my family's favorites from back home on the islands. My pregnant wife started to crave "frickles", as we call them. Found this recipe and it hit the spot! I added in some garlic powder and a pinch of chili powder to the flour mixture. This recipe is highly-customizable! I'm trying to watch what I eat, but I couldn't help but to have some of these puppies with my light, home-made ranch.

Pumpkin Protein Cookies

Reviewed: May 18, 2011
I got this recipe and tried it b/c I'm on a diet and I thought it would be a healthy, tasty snack. My wife also likes everything pumpkin, so I saw it as a win-win. I'm sure there's a bunch of people out there who would love this recipe, but for my wife and I it wasn't what we had expected. :( Probably won't try this again. Sorry!

Seasoned Potato Fries

Reviewed: Dec. 15, 2010
The fries didn't crisp up like I hoped they would and they didn't have as much flavor as I hoped they would. If I decide to make these again I'll up the seasoning and maybe add a bit of ground oregano and parsley.

Downeast Maine Pumpkin Bread

Reviewed: Sep. 5, 2010
This was great! I made some for my wife and mother-in-law and they both agree. My wife is a hardcore pumpkin fanatic and keeps several cans of pumpkin puree on hand at all times so she's thrilled that we now have this added to our arsenal of pumpkin recipes. Next time I may try to add a bit more cinnamon, maybe even pecans, and then sprinkle some oats on top for an aesthetic garnish.
