BBQ Dry Rub

Reviewed: Jul. 27, 2004
So good! I first used this for some thick pork chops, which were good, but my husband burned them a little. First time we had grilled pork. Last night we used it with country-style pork ribs, and it was a real winner! My husband declared it the best he'd ever had and so did our neighbor. Thanks for sharing it.

Spiced Pot Roast

Reviewed: Feb. 14, 2013
I have made this pot roast several times, always using my slow cooker instead of baking in the oven. I leave out the flour to make it gluten-free. It's very good, and the leftovers are perfect for a beef curry dish.

Slow Cooker Barbeque

Reviewed: Mar. 1, 2005
My husband ate 4 sandwiches of this beef tonight....I couldn't believe it! This is very easy to make. The only change I made was to add 1 cup of water after 2-3 hours of cooking, because it looked very dry, and I was afraid it would burn.

Cranberry and Cilantro Quinoa Salad

Reviewed: May 4, 2012
I love that this salad contains no oil. Great flavors and interesting textures! I used half of a medium red onion, but it was a little strong. Next time, I will use less onion.

Spicy Vegan Potato Curry

Reviewed: Oct. 11, 2011
This is scrumptious! I omitted the cayenne completely, since I wanted my kids to be able to eat it. It was PLENTY spicy without the cayenne. I used 6 potatoes and frozen peas instead of canned. So, so good. Looking forward to the leftovers tomorrow!

Lentils and Rice with Fried Onions (Mujadarrah)

Reviewed: Apr. 16, 2008
Yum! This is so good and so simple! Be sure to let the onions carmelize...getting really brown and toasty. That's what makes this dish so yummy. I cut the oil down to 3 Tablespoons, which was plenty, and I used white Basmati rice. I served it with hummus and pita and a mixed green salad topped with sunflower seeds and balsamic vinegarette....all the flavors went so well together. My husband, who was skeptical when he came to the table, declared it a "keeper" by the end of the meal.

Premier White Brownies

Reviewed: Jan. 31, 2011
To achieve a more brownie-like consistency, I used 8oz. of white chocolate instead of 6oz. I removed them from the oven at exactly 25 minutes. Love to almond flavor! Family gobbled them up. Also, to simplify the prep, I melted the chocolate and the butter together. Worked perfectly.

Whiskey Mojo Marinade

Reviewed: Jan. 23, 2011
Used on venison round steaks. Marinaded 48 hours, since dinner plans changed unexpectedly. Delicious! Will use again.

Chocolate Chess Pie II

Reviewed: Apr. 23, 2011
This is a classic Southern, old fashioned dessert. The key, in my opinion, is to mix it long enough (at least 5 minutes). I just let my Kitchen Aid do the mixing while I prep the crust. I also bake a little longer, 50-55 minutes. And, finally, after it's completely cooled, I put it in the fridge to chill. My boys love this pie, and my husband thinks I could sell it. Yum!

BUSH'S® Traditional Black Beans and Rice

Reviewed: May 27, 2010
I have been making this recipe for at least 6 years since first finding it on this website. I always add an extra can of black beans and use a full can of petite diced tomatoes for the tomatoes it calls for. We LOVE it! Made a very large batch for a vegan dinner party once, and they all loved it, too. Many thanks for one of my favorite recipes!

Ginger Veggie Stir-Fry

Reviewed: Mar. 24, 2010
So yummy! I love the fresh ginger flavor. I did not have broccoli, so I compensated with mushrooms, red peppers, and purple cabbage. I'm sure it would be wonderful with broccoli, too. I cut down on the oil and sprinkled on some sesame seeds. I will definitely make this again.

Stir-Fry Sesame Green Beans

Reviewed: Feb. 9, 2011
Excellent recipe! This is one of the best stir-fry meals I have ever made. I followed the recipe exactly, except for decreasing the canola oil to 1/2 tablespoon and using a full 8 oz. pkg. of mushrooms. I love the straightforward instructions. I chopped everything up and had it ready to add, so I just followed the directions and set a timer so I wouldn't overcook the veggies each time I made an addition. The apricots and the toasted sesame seeds really made it special. Can't wait to make it again!

Absolutely Ultimate Marinade

Reviewed: Jul. 30, 2004
Great marinade that's a little different! I always use light soy sauce with less salt. We use this for chicken breasts and venison chops. The leftover grilled chicken is great the next day, sliced thin on a salad.

Roast Sticky Chicken-Rotisserie Style

Reviewed: Feb. 16, 2010
This is the only way I'll roast a chicken from now on! I made this twice before, using a baking bag since I didn't have 5 hours. It was very good that way, and my family said they loved it and would like to have it again. BUT, today I made this according to the recipe, roasting it at 250 degrees for 4 1/5 hours. It was out of this world delicious! Thanks for an excellent recipe/method for roasted chicken!

Classy Chicken

Reviewed: Jan. 10, 2005
Yummy! Easy to make and chicken was very moist. Husband declared it a winner! I followed the recipe exactly, except for using 3 large breast halves. It's a keeper.

Applesauce Oatie Cookies

Reviewed: Feb. 1, 2010
Yum-eee! These are more cake-like than most cookies, but that doesn't matter to us. I leave out the white sugar completely, since it's plenty sweet with the brown sugar, applesauce, raisins, and chocolate. I also used half whole wheat and half white flour (3/4 cups of each). These are tasty treats that my kids love!

Chicken and Biscuit Casserole

Reviewed: Feb. 27, 2005
This was excellent! I used leftover chicken, and only had 3 cups, but it was fine. Next time, I may use frozen peas instead of canned, and perhaps add a few more carrots. The biscuit dough was a little hard to handle (sticky!), but definitely worth the effort. YUM!!

White Beans and Peppers

Reviewed: Mar. 24, 2008
I was looking for a quick recipe for dinner tonight to replace our old standby of black beans and rice.....I was out of black beans, but had great northern. This was so easy and good! I used a yellow bell pepper and added about 1 clove of minced garlic. Served with jasmine rice, salad, and fresh pineapple. Yummy!
