Big Al's K.C. Bar-B-Q Sauce

Reviewed: Feb. 10, 2008
I used this recipe as stated in the recipe, with the exception of celery seed (had none) and I used only 3 tsp of liquid smoke (you can always add more liquid smoke, but you can't take it out!). This make a nice, sweet, tomato based sauce with a yummy spice combo. It is flavorful but I would not call it spicy. It worked well for my purpose. This made about 5 cups of sauce for me. I used this for pulled pork. I made the pork in the crock pot, shredded it, and then mixed the pork with the sauce and heated to serving temp. It worked fantastic.

Fast and Friendly Meatballs

Reviewed: Feb. 18, 2007
Fast, easy, a little on the bland side, but satifsying. I followed the recipe to the letter and served with barbeque sauce. I enjoyed them thoroughly.

Blackened Tuna

Reviewed: May 31, 2004
This is a great recipe that can be on the table in 10-15 mins. I put the Cajun seasoning in a ziploc bag, put in the fish, and shake to distribute evenly. I halve the recipe because there are just two of us, so I cook uncovered in a small frying pan. It may be because there are small "tuna medallions" and not larger "tuna steaks" where I live, but I have found 6 minutes is too much cooking time. I like my tuna to have a pink stripe in the middle so it is not too dry, so I sear closer to 2 mins a side. The recipe does get smoky, so turn off your smoke detector and turn on your oven fan if you do it inside. Yum!

Sesame Beef

Reviewed: May 5, 2004
Easy and tasty too! I used thinly sliced sirloin that I marinated for a half hour. Because sirloin is so tender on its own, I only cooked it for about 3 minutes over medium-high heat. The sauce is on the thin side with only three minutes of cooking, but there was plenty of it and my husband loved it. I look forward to trying this with chicken!

Chili II

Reviewed: Nov. 14, 2003
I only had a pound of meat on hand, so I halved the recipe. It was not the traditional chili I am used to. The chili was very light on beans, for one thing. And while it was flavorful and hearty, it was not overly spicy. We did enjoy it, though, and I will probably make the next time we are in the mood for a more "gourmet" chili. I served this with cornbread muffins, and it was a good match.

Baked Pesto Chicken

Reviewed: Nov. 4, 2003
Chicken came out tender and juicy, and the recipe was a snap. For all the pesto involved, I did not think the chicken was overly flavorful.

Chicken Parmigiana

Reviewed: Oct. 29, 2003
This was very easy and tasty and I will definitely make it again. That said, it was a little bland-- though this may depend on the seasonings in the spaghetti sauce used. I used Progresso Italian breadcrumbs and Colavita garden-style spaghetti sauce. The result was good but not great. The next time I make this I will season the chicken in addition to the breadcrumbs.

Oatmeal Blueberry Muffins

Reviewed: Oct. 27, 2003
These came out nice and moist. They taste like a breakfast muffin and have the crumb of a cake muffin (but not the sugar). I used frozen blueberries that I thawed by running them under cold water. I used aluminum liners and had no troubles with sticking or crumbling. I enjoyed these muffins as a nice change of pace, but I doubt I will make them often.

Shrimp Verde

Reviewed: Oct. 24, 2003
Considering the ease of preparation and the few ingredients, this was delicious. I did not have Italian parsley so I used curly parsley, and this worked fine. My husband found it a little less than satisfying, but only because it was light and relatively low-calorie. It is a beautiful meal, and I would consider serving it to company in the summer.

Angel Hair Pasta Chicken

Reviewed: Oct. 16, 2003
I prepared the recipe as stated. It is on the bland side. The parmesan broth mixture was good, but mild. I served this with crusty rolls and it was a satisfying dinner for me. My husband did not enjoy it and did not finish his portion-- it wasn't filling or flavorful enough for his taste.

Banana Pancake Muffins

Reviewed: Sep. 22, 2003
I will make these again. I added an extra half banana and substituted 1 c. of wheat flour for 1 c. regular flour. I also used vanilla soy milk. The batter seemed awfully thick, but they came out well. Mine took twenty-five minutes to cook, but that probably had something to do with the extra banana. They are moist and breakfast-y and my husband downed two immediately. With that amount of wheat flour, they are not overly sweet.

Shrimp Lemon Pepper Linguini

Reviewed: Sep. 9, 2003
I halved this recipe because I was only feeding me and my husband. This turned out to be a mistake- 1/2 lb of shrimp was not enough for both of us! The only other change I made was to halve the pepper. It ended up plenty peppery, and I agree with the other reviewers who said to add pepper to taste. This was very tasty, and I'll be making again (with a little extra shrimp).

Spicy Shredded Beef

Reviewed: Sep. 9, 2003
My husband and I had this for dinner the other night. It was very good and exactly what I expected it to be: tasty taco filling. I had no problems with the beef drying out while it was simmering. I made no changes to the recipe. I think my cubes might have been too small, because I had trouble putting two forks in to shred. I ended up using my fingers and that was fine. I had a bunch of tomato stuff left at the end, and I just pitched it. The meat was the yummy part, although I should note that it wasn't spicy.
