Tail Burner Firehouse French Fries

Reviewed: Jul. 8, 2011
Although I love to try new recipes from this site, I seldom write reviews and have never written anything negative. However, I felt it was necessary to write about this one. I'm a huge fan of anything hot/spicy and was excited about trying these fries. I followed the ingredient amounts exactly but used 3 tbsp of olive oil instead of the butter (at the suggestion of other reviews). I placed everything in a large ziploc bag and tossed to evenly coat the potatoes. They smelled great while baking, but I was SO disappointed! The spices seemed to overwhelm each other, resulting in just alot of "hot" but not much flavor. I'm not sure what I would change if I try them again but something just wasn't "right" for me. Maybe less red pepper would make the lemon pepper more distinctive. I tried dipping them in ketchup or Ranch dressing and still didn't enjoy them.

Southern Praline Pecan Cake

Reviewed: Mar. 18, 2006
What a delicious cake recipe! I've made it twice, with only one change. My Bundt cake pan is star-shaped which caused the pecans to cluster in the "points" of the star. Therefore, the second time I made it, I stirred ALL of the pecans into the batter instead of halfing it as instructed. It turned out great either way! I used the exact measurements of oil and water with no problem. I've shared the recipe with at least 5-6 other people because everyone loved it and have been asked to bring at least TWO of the cakes to our family reunion this summer! Thanks for a great recipe!

Tantalizingly Tangy Meatloaf

Reviewed: Feb. 17, 2006
Excellent meatloaf recipe! I added chopped onion and extra Worcestershire sauce to the meat mixture and it turned out great. Made the topping exactly as shown, including the pineapple preserves that I found at our local grocery store. The sweetness is definitely unique and very delicious. Leftovers were even better the next day! This recipe has replaced my favorite "old fashioned" ketchup-style meatloaf!

Corn Casserole I

Reviewed: Dec. 28, 2005
This is the second corn casserole recipe that I've tried from this website and it was the best, by far! I followed the recipe exactly and it turned out perfect. Very moist. Although not much was left over, it was even better the next day when warmed in the microwave. This recipe will remain on our Thanksgiving menu!

Peppermint Pie

Reviewed: Dec. 14, 2005
I made this pie for Christmas last year and plan to make it again this year. It was very easy but very good! The only change I made was to purchase a "ready-made" Oreo pie crust (just to save time) and then I sprinkled additional crushed candy on top for decoration. If you like peppermint ice cream, you'll enjoy this pie!

Awesome and Easy Creamy Corn Casserole

Reviewed: Dec. 14, 2005
I made this dish for Thanksgiving and it was definitely a hit! Everyone loved it! I used a Mexican cornbread mix and it was wonderful -- may try adding green chiles next time as other reviewers suggested. It had more of a dense cornbread texture than I expected so I would like to make it again when cornbread dressing is not on the menu, just for more variety. I'll definitely make it again!

Reviewed: Jan. 7, 2005
I made this for a New Year's party and everyone loved it! I used peanuts (cheaper!)but want to make it again using pecans and almonds. I also used the Cinnamon Crispix cereal like several others recommended. Will definitely make this again!
