King Ranch Chicken Casserole

Reviewed: Jun. 18, 2014
I made this recipe exactly as stated, since that's the only way to really give it a fair shot. (I don't put much stock in reviews that don't evaluate the actual recipe!) Honestly, the flavor is good. my only complaint was the texture. There needs to be something in there with some crunch. Maybe I cut the chicken into pieces that were to small. It would have been better if the peppers or onions had maintained some of their crunch. I'll try it again and maybe not saute the onion and peppers. Or perhaps garnish the top with crushed corn chips. It just needs something to give it more structure. But again, the taste is great!

Szechwan Shrimp

Reviewed: May 8, 2014
I made this exactly as the recipe directs because I think that's important the first time you're trying a recipe you haven't tasted before. Otherwise your review isn't worth much, in my opinion. Having made it once, I thought it was pretty good but could be improved upon with the addition of water chestnuts and crunchy broccoli. I also used fresh shrimp and sauteed them in a chili oil and sesame oil combination. Really added a nice extra zip. Since we're not huge fans of ginger, I reduced it a titch, maybe half. I chose to serve it over rice noodles (we need to watch carbs) and it was delicious.

Juicy Grilled Corn On The Cob

Reviewed: May 8, 2014
This worked really well. I love grilled corn but have always hated removing the silk and then rewrapping in husks. This is easy to work into a regular menu and, most of all, delicious.

Bourbon Mashed Sweet Potatoes

Reviewed: Apr. 25, 2014
I'm a bourbon drinker as it is, so this was especially enticing to me! I made the recipe exactly as written, and it was a very nice change from the usual super-sweet sweet potatoes I've had in the past. For my taste, I'll probably cut back just a titch on the bourbon next time. (I think I got carried away in my excitement!)

Creamy Au Gratin Potatoes

Reviewed: Apr. 25, 2014
I had my doubts about this recipe, thinking it was going to be bland, but it was everything I wanted it to be. I made it according to the recipe, because I think that's a good starting place for trying something new. It was creamy and delicious, without being overbearing at all. I quadrupled the recipe for our Easter dinner and it came out perfect. Great recipe to accompany a delicious ham.

Cindy's Simple Cauliflower Soup

Reviewed: Apr. 16, 2014
I wasn't expecting this recipe to be very satisfying, expecting to have to add cream and/or cheese to give it richness. But it's soooo satisfying, creamy and delicious just as it is! And I don't have to feel guilty eating it!

Super-Delicious Zuppa Toscana

Reviewed: Mar. 6, 2014
I made this exactly as the recipe called for and it was delicious. I might add more potatoes and maybe some carrots next time for volume. I think the potatoes I used were too small.

Refried Beans Without the Refry

Reviewed: Jan. 21, 2014
My only issue with this recipe was that it was a tad too salty. An easy fix. These are better than any canned refried beans and pretty much as good as or better than) any I've had in Mexican restaurants.

Slow-Cooked Ranch Potatoes

Reviewed: Jan. 13, 2014
This recipe works in the slow cooker or in the oven. The oven gives these potatoes a nice crispy top.

Delicious Ham and Potato Soup

Reviewed: Jan. 1, 2014
Absolutely delicious as is! I wasn't expecting that. I usually have to "doctor things up" but this one is great as is. That's not to say that a hint of garlic wouldn't be a nice addition to the flavors, but it's not necessary. Great with oyster crackers, garnish with chopped chives, chopped green onions, or shredded cheddar. Or, all three!
