Boston Baked Beans

Reviewed: Mar. 31, 2014
I found this to be a great tasting and simple recipe (although time consuming when using dry beans). I totally ignored all the baked bean recipes that included canned baked beans as an ingredient since I believe that is simply a modification and not an actual recipe on its own. The only change to the ingredients I made was that I cut the amount of salt in half and will most likely eliminate it all together the next time I make this. Between the bacon, ketchup and Worcestershire sauce, the sodium content is well covered. Although it may seem like I should not give it 5 stars based on my comments, all I can say is that the taste and texture (not thin and runny like the canned versions)suited me very well.

Mexican Bean Salad

Reviewed: Feb. 23, 2014
Loved this bean salad. Even my teenage daughter said "Dad, I really like that stuff you made, just less onions next time, its on my breath". Anyone with a teenage girl in the house knows that is as close to a compliment as you can expect and also why the onion breath is a no no! I made the recipe as listed except for the salt. I did not add any since there is enough sodium in the dish naturally and the acids give it enough zing that I did not think it was necessary. Was great without it! Beans are a great source of protein, iron, fiber... not to mention they are filling. I also believe the citrus in this recipe has more health attributes then they are normally given credit for. Thanks for a great recipe.

It's Chili by George!!

Reviewed: Oct. 28, 2013
Made this for a tailgate party, bunch of guy's watching football by an outdoor fire pit. I heeded other's input about not using the tomato juice since I wanted it pretty hearty and not to runny. I used 1 15.5oz can of diced tomato and 1 15.5oz can of stewed tomato instead of 46oz of the juice. I had the tomato sauce available but left it out also since as it came together, I was pretty happy with how it looked. Glad I did! The slow cooker method for 8+ hours did wonders bringing this to just the consistency I was looking for even if a little light on tomato. Overall it was a very big hit. I did add double the cumin, cayenne and green bell pepper but that's just personal taste and no fault of a recipe that did a good job of giving me, a non cook,a platform to work from.

Spiced Pumpkin Seeds

Reviewed: Oct. 22, 2012
Very Good! I followed these directions even though I pre dried the seed's for 24 hours, however, I did not boil with salt water or any other treatment. Just check to be sure your not burning them if you dry them first and make sure to stir them around a few times to rotate the hot spots. Has the right amount of zing without the typical "pumpkin pie spice" seasoning usually associated with this type of seasonal fare. Very well done!
