Texas Caviar I

Reviewed: May 26, 2003
WOW! What a big hit! At my dinner club, this was the recipe that the guests wanted to take home with them. I kicked it up a little with more jalapeno and garlic but other than that this recipe is a winner!!!

Creamy Coconut Cake

Reviewed: Jul. 18, 2003
My sister-in-law turned me onto this cake however on hers she omits all the coconut products and serves with fresh, in-season fruits. I am eager to try this with the coconut as that is one of my favorites, too.

Braised Balsamic Chicken

Reviewed: Sep. 9, 2003
This is an outstanding recipe. As is, it stands alone. The only 2 changes I made was to add some crushed red pepper and use thick, boneless pork chops instead of chicken. Thank you....I can't wait to make this again!

Pumpkin Cream Cheese Muffins

Reviewed: Oct. 22, 2003
This totally exceeded my expectations. Not being a big fan of pumpkin I was worried it might taste too much like pumpkin pie. Boy, was I wrong. The texture was light and airy and they baked up so nicely. I felt they were a little time consuming to make, so next time I am going to make it as a loaf. I have a lot of company coming in for Thanksgiving and I plan on making several loafs to serve for a quick and yummy breakfast.

Tanya's Louisiana Southern Fried Chicken

Reviewed: Jun. 23, 2004
I thought this turned out a good piece of southern fried chicken. Here are some additional tips for getting a tasty bird. Rinse chicken pieces and place in large pot or bowl and add a couple of tsp. of baking soda (this takes the blood out of the bird)and fill with water until covered for 15-20 min. Drain and rinse and refill with water again. This time place several teaspoons of iodized salt and add chicken back to water. Refridgerate for 3-4 hours or overnight if desired. This seasons the meat so that you will have a flavorful and juicy bite each time. Good Luck

Hot Mexican Spinach Dip

Reviewed: Jun. 5, 2003
One word....AWESOME! This recipe has a great blend of flavors that just get better the more you eat! I served this with both tortilla chips and flat bread. In addition, I kicked it up with an additional jalapeno w/ the seeds, a can of diced green chilies, a cup of extra cheese (I used a cheddar-jack blend) and I used hot salsa. It was just the right amount of heat to warm you up but not make you sweat! Thanks for such a great recipe I will make this frequently.

Deep Fried Dill Pickles

Reviewed: Jun. 23, 2004
This recipe is out of this world. In addition to slices of pickles, I fried up some zesty, pickled, peppers and onion rings. This was a big hit at my party with everyone wanting a copy of the recipe! Thanks!

Chicken Tortilla Soup III

Reviewed: Jan. 4, 2005
Outstanding recipe! I doubled the portions and it made a huge pot with plenty of tasty leftovers. Only changes I made were to add a couple of cans of diced green chilies, additional cilantro and a cup of cheese while it was cooking. You can't beat the creamy taste and complex flavor. It was delicious down to the bottom of the bowl. Highly recommend this to anyone looking to impress~

Chocolate Chip Cheesecake I

Reviewed: Jan. 4, 2005
This certainly is a keeper. It was both easy to make and it presented beautifully. I think I will experiment using the cheesecake base and try different add-ins. Can't see how I could go wrong~this cheesecake has a great backbone!

Calico Squash Casserole

Reviewed: Jul. 13, 2005
One word - AWESOME! A staple for the summer dinner table. This recipe uses much from the summer garden/farmer's market and packs a big punch. You have the great flavor and the bonus of the value of serving several healthy veggies in one appealing casserole. I have shared this with several friends and family members and it has received only raves. Stop what you are doing and add this one to your recipe box...it's a keeper! Note: To save time you can boil the veggies and seperately mix the wet ingredients the night before. The next day just combine and add the crackers and you can speed up the process.

Tangy Honey Glazed Ham

Reviewed: Mar. 22, 2006
This has become THE glaze recipe of our family. A mere mention of this recipe sends my kids begging and pleading for it. During the several times that I have made this I have found it useful to regularly pull the ham out and use my baster to squirt the glaze/juice evenly over the ham. This promotes an even flavor and beautiful color. I would have rated this ****** stars if possible!

Grilled Corn on the Cob

Reviewed: May 26, 2003
I served this corn for a Texas BBQ dinner party and it was delicious. I prepared just as directed, although I dipped the ears under water prior to shaking the salt and pepper. This seemed to help it "stick" better. Also, I used course ground black pepper. Very tasty. I plan to experiment with different butter mixtures to match the corn to my grilled dishes.

Spicy Garlic Lime Chicken

Reviewed: Jun. 19, 2003
This recipe just replaced my old Lime Chicken recipe. It was wonderful! So simple and easy, too. I fixed the marinade in the morning, bumped up the heat-factor a little, used fresh cilantro from my garden (made all the difference) and threw it in a bag along with the juice of a couple limes. I marinated it all afternoon and then threw it on the grill. While grilling, I coated it with coarse ground pepper and squeezed fresh lime juice on each side. Definitly a keeper! My husband was disappointed he was travelling the next day and couldn't take the leftovers for lunch. Instead, I sliced up the cold chicken and served it on a salad. MMMMMMmmmmmm-good! Thanks for the recipe!

Flat Iron Steak with Three Pepper Rub

Reviewed: Jun. 12, 2011
This was wonderful. Proportions were perfect for 2 Flat Iron Steaks. Grilled over Mesquite wood chunks and served in corn tortilla with fresh guacamole, black bean-corn-pico de gallo, and lime. Key when cutting Flat Iron is to cut on the bias. Doing this makes meat very tender. Also, don't forget to let it rest up to 5 minutes after taking off the grill to retain juices. GREAT RUB!

Sassy Chicken Enchilada Dip

Reviewed: Mar. 22, 2006
What a wonderful dish. I knew just by looking at the ingredients it would be tasty. I took this to a superbowl party and I chose to heat it up and serve. What a good choice because as it warmed up...guys came out of the woodwork looking for whatever it was that smelled so good. They swarmed on it like locusts and if they could have gotten away with it I think someone would have licked the plate. I served this with hard corn tortilla chips and soft flour tortillas. Great recipe as is, but you can tweak it to suit your tastebuds with different/more cheese, spicier, etc. I am going to try this base without chicken and spoon it onto a thin chix breast and roll and bake it in the oven. Then serve with some kind of corn/black bean relish...getting hungry just thinking about it. Make this recipe and you won't be disappointed.
