Good New Orleans Creole Gumbo

Reviewed: Nov. 1, 2011
I know little about Creole cooking and this is the real deal. I had to add a teaspoon of cayenne simply to add a bit more heat and I used 1 cup of bacon drippings vice 3/4 cup. I doubled the garlic as well.

Kaese Spaetzle

Reviewed: Jun. 6, 2009
As an American living in Stuttgart, I can say that this recipe is authentic. I loved it! I did something just a little different because I like mine with bacon, which omits the requirement for butter. Fried .5 pound of bacon, reataining the grease in the large skillet. Sauteed a small chopped white onion in the grease, then added the spatzle/emmentaler and crumbled bacon. Yum!

Catfish Tuscany

Reviewed: Apr. 7, 2009
I am a big catfish fan, actually most all fish. This hit the spot this evening. I noticed I had some frozen fillets in the freezer and had all the other ingredients. About 25 minutes later, I was enjoying my supper. I didn't alter the recipe, which is my tendancy on the second and third tries. As-is, this is a winner. I wil try it with mahi-mahi or grouper next.

Crispy Fried Chicken

Reviewed: Jan. 4, 2013
This is a great recipe! This chicken is just like this Alabama boy grew up eating from time to time. Veggie oil works good, but you need to try this recipe with Crisco.. try it.

Authentic Louisiana Red Beans and Rice

Reviewed: Nov. 14, 2012
I didn't rate this recipe as good as it is. It is a great rendition of red beans and rice just as written. I have made this recipe many times with great results. When I'm feeling lazy I use Miami Beaches base recipe with one significant change that many of you will likely discard. Instead of using EVOO, I use bacon drippings that occupy a spot on my kitchen counter. Not the healthiest choice but the flavor is there and that is the southern way - just exercise more:) Several Cajun dishes; gumbo, jambalaya, and red beans and rice, are so much better with a roux at it's base. Creating a roux adds an extra 45 minutes to this recipe, but it is worth the time and effort. This is the method I use when I want to "do it right". To modify the recipe as I have, modify step two with the following. You will need to add an extra 1.5 cups of water in step 3. For clarity, an additional step - "2a" - is added as well. 2. Mix 1/4 cup of bacon grease (or oil of choice) and 1/4 cup of all purpose flour in skillet. Cook, stirring constantly, over medium heat until the roux is mahogany brown in color. This will take 30-45 minutes! 2a. Add the celery, onion, garlic, and bell pepper to the roux and cook for 5 minutes. Continue with the steps Miami Beach outlined with the original recipe.

Kerr Lake Catfish Stew

Reviewed: Dec. 10, 2009
This recipe is excellent as-is. I made a double batch as the recipe stated it was for 4 servings, but that is the only thing wrong with it. As written, this recipe will feed 12.. easily. I made cornbread to go with it. My family gobbled it up.

Best Guacamole

Reviewed: Sep. 23, 2009
This guac is really easy, but I don't see the need for olive oil. I a,m sure there are other reviews that state this, but you need other key ingredients to amke good guac. I appreciate this recipe in that it started me on my search for a good recipe. I took this recipe and omitted the oil and lemon juice, added 2 seeded and chopped jalepenos, one small deseeded and diced tomato, 2 tbs lime juice, and 1/2 teaspoon cumin. You have to refridgerate for at least an hour. I liked the result. Thx for a good base recipe

Cousin David's Slow Cooker Brisket

Reviewed: Feb. 14, 2009
This turned out soo good. I did the recipe as follows, except I poured three bottles of guinness stout and two bottles of Sweet Baby Ray's BBQ sauce in my slow cooker, which is very large. I sliced 5 white onions and placed on the bottom, seared a 10 lb brisket, and let it go for 9 hours on 250 degrees. I poured the juices in a skillet and added flour, salt, garlic, and back pepper to make a gravy. Da Bomb

Chili con Carne II

Reviewed: Feb. 4, 2012
I have used the Boilermaker Tailgate chili recipe from Allrecipes for several years, and its amazing. Over time I have adjusted that recipe to my taste. I thought I would try this one and it didn't disappoint. Great recipe! Since I had them on hand, I used dried California Chili pods. I just roasted them with a tablespoon of oil and threw them in my food processor then to the crockpot with the other ingredients. Omitted the fresh chili pepper in lieu of the dried pods. Added a cup of pilsner, an extra onion, and an extra pound of ground beef but outside of that stuck to the original recipe. Darn good chili. Now whether its better than the Boilermaker Tailgate chili recipe, I will leave that up to individual opinions. Both are awesome.

Meatloaf Cordon Bleu

Reviewed: Mar. 11, 2012
This is a great idea! One suggestion - I gave up using dried bread crumbs for meatloaf a long time ago. I use plain deli white bread soaked in milk. Super moist and delicious with meatloaf. simply cut the bread in 1-2" cubes, place in a 9x13, and soak with whole milk. After about 10 minutes, using your hands pick up the bread and squeeze the excess milk off and place the bread on a cuting board. Chop and add to the meat mixture with 2 eggs.

Albondigas

Reviewed: Nov. 9, 2009
Very nice. I took the advice to add zuchinni and beef broth and omitted the boullion cubes. I make my own salsa which is on the hot side of the spice scale, so I didn't need any cayenne. The only thing I added that wasn't mentioned was ground cumin. I can't imagine a Mexican soup without it.

Tortilla Soup II

Reviewed: Oct. 19, 2009
Awesome! I am a big cilantro fan, so I doubled the amout, and I doubled the lime. Too save time I used 3 cans Tyson's (12.5 oz) breast meat. Huge hit! It fit the weather for the day.. mid 30's

Boilermaker Tailgate Chili

Reviewed: Sep. 13, 2009
Great Chili! I will probably use this recipe when I enter a chili cook off later this fall. My folks thought it was a bit spicy, but that is expected with them. The wife likes to put sour cream in it when served. I only added one ingredient not mentioned in the recipe, which was 2-3 tablespoons of dark brown sugar. Only because I really like the contradicting sweet/spicy flavors.
