Red Enchilada Sauce

Reviewed: Sep. 6, 2003
This sauce made my husband propose to me again! (We were married in Vegas-after this sauce, he has asked for a Mountain retreat... cozy!) I used tomato paste & added extra chili powder and cumin. My husband is from San Diego and we don't have the same quality of food here in TN but he said this was better than any sauce he had in San Diego or Mexico! Thanks Sara for an awesome sauce!

Homemade Crispy Seasoned French Fries

Reviewed: Oct. 9, 2003
These are great! It is a little messy but well worth it! I seem to always make a mess anyway... I used a frying pan and drained the fries on a rack over a sheet pan so they wouldn't get soggy. My hubby never eats fries but ate most of these while I was still fixing dinner. Thanks Cassie - you are a genius!

Basic Baked Spaghetti

Reviewed: Sep. 17, 2003
Quick and Easy! I used your recipe as a base and made the following changes: ground pork instead of beef, added onions and garlic sauteed in olive oil, and black olives and also definitly more sauce (I added 2 jars). For cheese, I used fresh romano, mozzarello, and parmesan. So good! Be sure to cover the dish and take the foil off during the last 10-15 minutes to brown. My hubby told me it was the best spaghetti he has ever had! Thanks so much Wendy!

Restaurant-Style Buffalo Chicken Wings

Reviewed: Sep. 11, 2003
Awesome! I made 3 lbs. of wings, and my hubby ate all but a couple of wings. I have also found that just deep frying the wings naked - without flour, then draining on a rack and placing in a serving bowl with Texas Pete Wing Sauce is just as good (hotter which is what we love!) and much quicker. So good with chunky blue cheese dressing and celery. Thanks Kelly for a great tasting recipe!

Microwave Corn on the Cob

Reviewed: Dec. 2, 2003
Yummy!! We love corn on the cob and this is the easiest and fastest way to prepare it! When we aren't able to grill the corn because of cold weather this is the recipe we love! For us, 2-3 ears of corn is done in exactly 8 minutes. I made 10 ears of corn for Thanksgiving and cooked for 14 minutes. Perfect! Thanks Cheri for making something so good, so simple!

Famous Butter Chicken

Reviewed: Sep. 9, 2003
Loved it! I omitted the egg and melted 2-3 tablespoons of butter. I dipped the chicken in the melted butter, and then dredged in the cracker crumbs. Nice and buttery, not greasy at all, and I didn't have a problem with the cracher crumbs sticking. I also just used a couple of pats of butter rather than 1/2 cup to "dot" the chicken. Thanks so much Heather for a marvelous butter chicken that is famous with us!

Open-Faced Broiled Roast Beef Sandwich

Reviewed: Sep. 9, 2003
I used this recipe with the Best Beef Dip Ever found on this website instead of deli roast beef. I also subbed the mayo and mustard with Home Horseradish also from this site, and used Mozzarella instead of Provolone! My hubby thought it was divine! Thanks HellSwitch for a great sandwich!

Best Beef Dip Ever

Reviewed: Sep. 9, 2003
I used a 2 lb. chuck roast and didn't cut down on any of the other ingredients. I cooked it for 6 hours one night and 4-5 hours the next day! I served on toasted french sub rolls, with mozzarella and "Homemade Horseradish" which is found on this website. My hubby and I really loved it. Thanks Lori for the best beef dip ever!

Enchiladas

Reviewed: Sep. 6, 2003
Excellent! I used refried beans instead of beef (my hubby's favorite) and I topped with Red Enchilada Sauce from this website (Hubby absolutely loved that!!) and monterey jack. Baked covered for 15 minutes and this was the best meal we have had since moving from San Diego to TN. Ole Donna!

Garlic Red Potatoes

Reviewed: Jan. 16, 2004
This is a favorite potato dish in our home. I omit the lemon - we don't care for it. And of course, I add more garlic. We add brussel sprouts, quartered, as well, if I have them on hand. It takes about 45 minutes to roast and it even tastes great reheated the next day. Super dish Laura!!

Awesome Slow Cooker Pot Roast

Reviewed: Aug. 25, 2003
Awesome is right! I always thought my mother made the best pot roast and since she passed away 15 years ago (without a written recipe) I have been struggling with this dish. Well, we finally hit the jackpot with this recipe! I seared my roast first, then threw thinly sliced onion and 4 garlic cloves, minced, in the same skillet after searing. Then I added the remainder of the ingredients (except I only used 1 can of mushroom soup) plus 1/2 c. of Chardonney. I used cornstarch to thicken the gravy because we like a thicker gravy. Served with mashed potatoes and garlicky green beans and it was awesome! Thanks Brenda!!

St. Louis Toasted Ravioli

Reviewed: Aug. 25, 2003
We had this the other night and we absolutely loved it! My hubby and I are not too crazy about cheese ravioli, my hubby prefers meat, but I wanted to prepare exactly as directed. We will try the Meat Ravioli next time. Thanks Barb for a great meal!

Pepperoncini Beef

Reviewed: Dec. 2, 2003
I just recently bought a convection oven. I prepared a roast that didn't quite turn out & it was underdone so I thought I would try to save it with this recipe. It worked! I added the entire jar of whole pepperoncini's with the liquid and it was to die for! My hubby raved on and on about it! He loved that the peppers were whole and we made two meals out of this roast (sandwiches & burritos). Thanks Joyce - you're a jewel!

Garlic Croutons

Reviewed: Oct. 9, 2003
The best! I used a little more butter than called for and used the microwave to melt it. I then put the bread crumbs in a tupperware bowl with the butter and fresh garlic and gave it a shake - so easy! In fact, my hubby requests more salads now that I make these croutons. Sourdough is our favorite. Thanks Cathy for great croutons! You're a genius!

Crispy Fried Chicken

Reviewed: Aug. 25, 2003
I am eating the leftovers right now and this chicken is even better cold! I have been making fried chicken for 10+ years and I have never been able to perfect the technique until now! I added garlic powder to my chicken after dipping in the flour and dipped my hubby's in Texas Pete hot sauce (mixed in with the buttermilk) because he likes it hot. I am a southern girl so I take my fried chicken seriously! So good with gravy too! Thanks so much Elaine!!

Ultimate Twice Baked Potatoes

Reviewed: Aug. 25, 2003
We have this at least once a week and this is our main course! I completely omit the milk, butter and green onion. After scooping the potatoes, I add salt, pepper, thick sliced bacon, x-sharp shredded cheddar, hand mash, then top with more bacon and cheese! So fattening but so good! My hubby likes me to cook these for about 20-25 minutes so that the potatoes "pancake" (or spread) on the cookie sheet. One of my hubby's fave's! Thanks Debra!

Cooking Light magazine's Chicken Parmesan

Reviewed: Aug. 25, 2003
This dish is excellent! I used chicken tenders and dipped the tenders in flour first. I also added parmesan and chopped garlic cloves to the breadcrumb mixture. After browning the chicken for about 3 to 4 minutes on each side, I put them on a cookie sheet in the oven at 350 degrees for about 5 minutes to finish cooking. Then I placed a little of the sauce (which I made) on the chicken tenders, topped with shredded provolone and Parmigiano and put it under the broiler to melt the cheese. I coated hot, cooked pasta with the remainder of the sauce. Definitely a keeper!

Steak Tips with Mushroom Sauce

Reviewed: Aug. 13, 2003
Absolutely divine! My husband, who doesn't care for mushrooms, really loved this recipe. He took the leftovers to work and said it was just as good the next day. I served it with the Ultimate Twice Baked Potatoes from this site as well.

To Die For Fettuccini Alfredo

Reviewed: Jul. 11, 2003
Heavenly!! My husband, like reviewer, SANDRAFOWLER's fiance, scrapped our plates! Fettuccini Alfredo is one of our favorite dishes. I totally craved this when I was pregnant (and believe it or not I only gained 8 lbs. with my pregnancy!) Never again will we order this in a restaurant because I can make it better thanks to Michelle Barr!!
