Layered Chicken and Black Bean Enchilada Casserole

Reviewed: Sep. 15, 2009
As I was dishing this up I plopped it down on the table, frustrated that I had just spent precious time making this dinner, because it did not look very good and looked very dry. Then I tasted it! YUM!!!! It was delicious and very flavorful and my husband and I both loved it. I will definitely be adding it to my rotation. The only things I did different was add a bit of chili powder and garlic powder to the chicken mixture and I used flour tortillas that I crisped a bit in the oven first.

Hot Fudge Ice Cream Bar Dessert

Reviewed: Sep. 15, 2009
YUM!!! I halved the recipe, which made 9 servings and I tweaked it just a tad, simply because we were specifically in the mood for something really chocolatey/peanut buttery. I omitted the peanuts and added crunchy peanut butter and peanut butter cups. So my layers went...IC sandwich, crunchy pb, chocolate/pb mixture, cool whip; repeat and top with chopped peanut butter cups. Mmmmm. SO good and perfectly chocolatey/peanut buttery!! I will say that it is much better the longer it's frozen. Mine was in for 3 hours before our company came and it was frozen, but still kind of softly frozen. I would give it at least 5 hours next time.

Peanut Butter and Banana Smoothie

Reviewed: Sep. 11, 2009
This was delicious! Although I'm giving it 4 stars because I did make a number of minor changes. I used regular milk (it's what I had), used a frozen banana for better consistancy, omitted the honey (too sweet for me) and I added 1/4c. oatmeal for some extra nutrition. For a special evening treat, some chocolate syrup would also be a fun twist!

Pizza On The Grill I

Reviewed: Sep. 7, 2009
Very good! My only complaint is that we cooked it on our charcoal grill, following the directions to use high heat and burned the bottom pretty bad. And because we had to then get the pizza off so it wouldn't burn more, the pizza wasn't very hot and some of the cheese did not melt. We also had a problem with flames after brushing the grates with oil, which also contributed to the pizza burning. Next time we'll wait to put the pizzas on until the flames completely die down after brushing grates with oil (or spritz them with a spray bottle) and possibly even brush the coals aside so the pizzas cook over indirect heat. We'll also make sure to have LONG utensils for spreading on the sauce/pesto, as the grill was too hot to have your hands down there brushing it on.

Best Steak Marinade in Existence

Reviewed: Sep. 7, 2009
Yum! Also very delicious quick-marinade for the mushrooms. After throwing the steaks on the grill, toss the mushrooms in the marinade for 5 minutes and then saute until nicely browned. SO good!!!

Monkey Bread I

Reviewed: Sep. 7, 2009
I reduced the recipe to 5 servings (ratio for 1 can of biscuits) and they were delicious, except that for some reason they turned out very dry for me. There was not near enough gooeyness. I cannot figure out why though, as my husband is actually the one who put it together while I was doing something else. He looked at the recipe again though and swears he didn't forget anything, so I don't know. I'll definitely try again though. The flavor was great!

Bacon and Tomato Cups

Reviewed: Sep. 2, 2009
I've got to say, I didn't love these. I did omit the onion because I don't like it and perhaps that had something to do with it, but I just really didn't care for them. In fact I took them to a cookout that was all finger foods and my dishes are typically the ones gobbled up the quickest, but there were a number left over tonight. They were good, but nothing great.

Best Fried Green Tomatoes

Reviewed: Aug. 31, 2009
Wonderful!! We loved these. The only thing we did different was add some hot sauce to the egg/milk mixture and some cayenne to the cornmeal/bread crumb mixture, because we love them spicy. We plan to use the leftovers tomorrow for BLTs. I did have a ton of egg left over, so next time I will probably only use one egg and crack another if need be.

Cajun Style Baked Sweet Potato

Reviewed: Aug. 27, 2009
These are excellent! I threw it all in a large covered tupperware bowl, added the oil and shook it up to coat, then added the seasonings and shook again, which was quick and coated them perfectly. I do not care for herbs much, so I omitted those. Other than that the only thing I did different was cut them into strips/fries so they would cook faster, and I turned on the broiler for the last few minutes to crisp them up a bit. The flavor was delicious! Just watch them when broiling so they don't burn!

Taco Seasoning I

Reviewed: Aug. 12, 2009
This was delicious and definitely a recipe I will begin using often. I used it in the Burrito Pie recipe on here a few weeks ago and it was excellent. Tonight I used it for tacos and it was once again excellent. I cooked up the ground beef and drained it, then added it back to the pot with 2T. spice + 2/3c. water (roughly) per pound of meat and simmered for about 20 minutes before serving.

Penne with Chicken and Pesto

Reviewed: Jul. 27, 2009
I've got to be honest, we were not fans. I give it 3 stars because I think it has potential, but we felt like the chicken was pretty bland and when the recipe is pretty much chicken and pasta, flavor in both is key. If I ever try this again I'll definitely add some more flavor to the chicken and add some veggies or something.

Penne Pasta with Spinach and Bacon

Reviewed: Jul. 22, 2009
I wouldn't call this "gourmet" but it was definitely delicious!! I followed the recipe as is, except for wilting my spinach right in the tomato mixture before adding the pasta. It helped with flavor and wilted just fine. I also topped with grated parmesan/romano. Halved the recipe and it was perfect for two of us. Great recipe!

Toasted Garlic Bread

Reviewed: Jul. 21, 2009
This was great. I scaled it to 4 and the garlic butter mix was just enough to spread 4 pieces of bread. Next time I think it needs a bit more garlic (I did one larger clove and one smaller one...I'll do 2 good sized cloves next time for this scaling). I also will add more salt next time, as I didn't add enough this time (my fault). I also omitted the oregano because I am not a fan, but next time I will add something...either oregano or parsley or something. Definitely a delicious recipe though! YUM! P.S. Broiler on low instead of high...or bake on 375 for 10 minutes for a crispy top AND bottom and use a pan with sides!

Teena's Spicy Pesto Chicken and Pasta

Reviewed: Jul. 21, 2009
I've got to say, we really didn't enjoy this dish and I was surprised because we are usually always thrilled with the dishes I've made from AR, as I typically choose higher stars with a lot of ratings, but we found this to be pretty bland, especially the chicken. I won't be making it again. I'm bummed!

Rated G Mexican Coffee

Reviewed: Jul. 19, 2009
I'm rating this 5-stars because I've actually never had Mexican coffee so I am not 100% sure what it's supposed to taste like, but I would imagine this is a great version of it! It is delicious, although I must say I think it must be an acquired taste. It's a very strong flavor. I scaled the recipe to 2 and because I did not have whole cloves or cinnamon sticks I used a little less than 1/4t ground cinnamon and a few shakes ground cloves. Good recipe.

Super Al's Cocktail Sauce

Reviewed: Jul. 15, 2009
Made this for a shrimp boil and everyone raved about it! Followed the recipe exactly and the only thing we'd do different next time is add a bit more horseradish for more of a bite, but that is a personal preference.

Honey Mustard Grilled Chicken

Reviewed: Jul. 8, 2009
I think I need to try this again. I thought it was good, but nothing amazing. But we had it at a big cookout and I was busy talking with everyone, so I didn't really pay much attention to the flavor. I'll try it again though. It certainly was easy!

Jalapeno Pepper Appetizers

Reviewed: Jul. 8, 2009
These were excellent and everyone raved!! Next time I may try cooking the bacon for a short time in the microwave before wrapping the jalapenos, just to give it a head start and to help it cook faster. It did take quite a bit longer (almost double) than the time listed for the bacon to get crisp. I also may try adding garlic (2t) and cajun (1T) to the cream cheese (or Neufchâtel for lower calories) and may even serve them with ranch dressing for dipping. Definitely a keeper though!

Alyson's Broccoli Salad

Reviewed: Jul. 6, 2009
YUM!!! There were a number of us that could not stop eating it! I cooked my bacon in the microwave between two paper towels until crisp. I also used red wine vinegar, because that's what I had. I do think I could have used a bigger head of broccoli though as the sauce was pretty thick and could have spread a bit more. Definitely a keeper recipe! **Next time I also think I'll try baking the bacon. My best friend does it all the time and says it's so easy for clean-up and your house smells way less. Line a baking sheet with foil and bake at 425, flipping once, until desired crispness...10-15 minutes or so. I'll also add some shredded cheddar and black pepper.

Sopapilla Cheesecake Pie

Reviewed: Jul. 6, 2009
This was delicious!! When I saw the recipe it looked good, but like nothing amazing. I received TONS of compliments on it though and people have mentioned it again even since the party I made it for. Very good and perfect for a Mexican themed party! The only thing I didn't do was add the honey. Honestly, I just forgot. I could go either way next time I make it because it was excellent even without it. I didn't realize it was supposed to have honey until reading the recipe again now to review it.
