Addictive Sweet Potato Burritos

Reviewed: May 31, 2014
These were addictive. I had to have two! My wife loved them also, and our picky two year old who only wants sugar filled food all the time enjoyed them. I took the advice of other reviewers and combined the sweet potato and red bean mash. That was easier and it tasted fantastic. I loaded them up with double the cheese and put olive oil on the outside of the tortillas before baking. The sweet potato I boiled, drained and mashed into the beans. I subsequently added no water to the mix. Served with guacamole, newman's own peach salsa, and sour cream spooned on top. yum! I have enough leftovers for the week too!!

London Broil I

Reviewed: Nov. 3, 2013
Marinated London Broil over night in 1 gallon ziplock bag. Cooked 10min each side with the broiler in the oven. Smoked up the house, but this was deeeeeeelicous!! Also added 3 tbsp of lemon juice to marinade and used 3 tsp of garlic powder instead of minced garlic. YUM!

Pain au Chocolat (Chocolate-Filled Croissant)

Reviewed: Sep. 3, 2012
Croissants are not for the faint of heart! For one, make sure you prep your yeast - warm water (105 F) with the sugar, and then add the yeast to the water for 5 to 10 minutes, or until it is frothy (I didn't do that! Massive Oops!) You need to make sure the dough rises too (I didn't do that - massive Oops!), and you really need to wait between rolling out the dough (I did do that!). If you want them to look like real croissants (real as in the ones you see in a bakery), you have to cut them into triangles (learned this after I made them rolls... oh boy!). Mine are in the oven now for the 15 minutes... hope they taste good!!! ... ... 20 minutes later... OMG delicious! Even though I made some giant mistakes they are oh so good! i will be doing this recipe again for sure the right way!

Beef Wellington

Reviewed: Feb. 12, 2012
Wow! This was amazing. Made it with the "Pesto Sauce" rub on the outside like the "most helpful" reviewer said. Holy Cow! I had never made this before, but it came out great. Did 12 minutes for the first cycle, then 12 minutes at 450, and 13 minutes at 425. It came out about "medium" which was perfect for my wife and I. Really, really yummy. This was my first beef wellington. Thank you for showing me a way to do it! Note: with all of the butter usd mine smoked up the oven a bit, and subsequently the house. Not sure how to avoid the smoke with the high temps in the oven. Maybe I can find some info on that somewhere here. It still tasted awesome though!!!

Beef Barley Soup

Reviewed: Feb. 12, 2012
Tastes delicious. Note that I used 2 cups of barley. Don't do that. It absorbs all of the liquid in the soup. One cup would definitely do it; or even 3/4 cup. Tastes great though! I just heated up some extra beef stock, and will add that to the soup bowls so it actually looks like soup :)

Italian Sausage Appetizer Bread

Reviewed: Feb. 5, 2012
This was pretty good! I used ground pork instead of ground sausage. For dough I bought fresh pizza dough from the grocery store deli. It was very yummy! Only issue is that my dough didn't brown. I would brush oil over it if I did this again. Other than that, no issues!

Ground Turkey Casserole

Reviewed: Dec. 29, 2011
Delicious! I changed it like everyone does though! Used alfredo sauce instead of tomato sauce, and then rigatoni instead of egg noodles. It was so good. Got filled up on just a couple of bites :) Enjoy!

Apple Pie

Reviewed: Dec. 18, 2011
Wow! First apply pie I ever made, and mad was it good! Used some fresh empire apples, and made Ruth's Grandma's Pie Crust as the crust for it. First crust I ever made too! Came out flippin' awesome :) Used butter instead of shortening in the pie crust because I had no shortening. Worked great. Followed the pie recipe to the "T" and enjoyed yummy apple pie for days. Yay!

Eggs Benedict

Reviewed: Dec. 18, 2011
Wow was this good! I followed the recipe just about exactly, except I made it for 2 servings instead of 4. I also cut the butter in half for the hollandaise sauce and substituted the other half with vegetable oil. I took the advice of the other reviewers and prepped adequately first! All the pots and pans were ready, makeshift doubleboiler heated up (sauce pan with stainless steel mixing bowl sitting in it but not touching the water), and used deli ham instead of canadian bacon. Also, toasted the muffins instead of using the boiler. The sauce thickened up nicely as I left it there warm and poached the eggs while cooking the ham. Had the water at just about a simmer and they poached amazingly! Had never poached an egg before, but wow I did it! This recipe rules. Thanks!

Mom's Sweet Potato Bake

Reviewed: Apr. 17, 2011
This is by far the most used recipe I have. It is delicious. I usually just use the ingredients for how ever many sweet potatoes I have; sometimes I have three, some times I have six. Whatever it takes, it is yummy -- the topping is the best. OMG We LOVE IT!
