Easy Sausage Gravy and Biscuits

Reviewed: Apr. 8, 2011
This was my first gravy-making attempt and it couldn't have gone any better! All I have to say is: WOW. I used a whole roll of sausage and threw in a healthy-sized glob of butter before flouring. This is now my go-to recipe for gravy! No more envelope mixes for us!

Pasta with Asparagus

Reviewed: Apr. 7, 2011
I made this as a side dish for grilled mesquite chicken breasts and it paired perfectly. I used TWO tbsp of olive oil, added 2 minced garlic cloves and used an entire can of chicken broth. I let the asparagus, mushrooms, garlic and pepper flakes simmer for a while and added a little bit of onion salt. I added two good-sized tbsp of Country Crock to the pasta before mixing with vegetables. Once mixed, the pasta absorbed almost all of the broth and left the perfect amount of "sauce". I always have a way of taking a healthier recipe and making it not-so-healthy. At any rate, it was fairly light and quite delicious. I will make it again.

Slow Cooker Beef Stew IV

Reviewed: Dec. 13, 2010
Best beef stew I have ever had/made! It was snowing and VERY cold in Kansas City this weekend, so this was the perfect thing to make! I changed a few things, which only made this recipe sooooo much better. I used almost 4 lbs of meat, which I marinated in red wine and garlic overnight. In the morning, I threw it all together. I used beef broth instead of water and I sauteed a whole bunch of mushrooms with my onions. I did not have the need to deglaze the skillet. Once everything was in the crock pot, I added an entire can of tomato paste. After the 6 or so hours, I added frozen peas and two envelopes of dry brown gravy mix. It could NOT have been more perfect! This is now THE recipe for beef stew; I will be making this again and again.

Crescent Bacon-Cheddar Pinwheels

Reviewed: Dec. 8, 2010
To me personally, these were just so-so. However, many people at the event for which these were prepared raved about them! I guess I was expecting more flavor. They looked nice and were easy enough to make. I added a tad bit more cheese and bacon. Definitely stick the rolls in the freezer a bit before attempting to cut them. I will make them again, but will either use more ranch or cream cheese instead of the ranch. I need to figure out something to give these a little more of a "kick". Perhaps I will come up with a dipping sauce of some sort for these.

The Best Lemon Bars

Reviewed: Nov. 15, 2010
WONDERFUL! This is now my go-to recipe for lemon bars. I did a little tweaking to the recipe per other users' reviews. The outcome was awesome. Very rich and tart with a buttery crust. I received positive feedback from all who tried them!

Slow Cooker Chicken Stroganoff

Reviewed: Nov. 15, 2010
Maybe I toyed with this recipe too much? Maybe my expectations of stroganoff don't include chicken? Whatever it is, I just wasn't all crazy about the outcome of this recipe. I took suggestions/tweaks/tips from many other people's reviews - perhaps I just did too much. However, it STILL seemed to be lacking SOMETHING. I don't think I will be making this again. If I do, I will stick to the original recipe.

Best Ever Jalapeno Poppers

Reviewed: Nov. 15, 2010
These were fabulous! The actual preparation wasn't as bad as I thought it would be; I just lined everything up on my kitchen table - kind of like an assembly line! I used 20 jalapenos of all different sizes and there was JUST the right amount of filling for all of them. I didn't skimp on the filling either; they were all pretty packed! Once the peppers were breaded, I put them in the freezer until "showtime". They looked awesome uncooked! The poppers fried up nicely and were definitely yummy! Next time, I am going to use more bacon. I had frozen leftovers that didn't make it to the fryer, so they went back into the freezer. The next day, I didn't want to turn the fryer on again, so I just popped them in the oven for about 14-15 minutes at 425. They weren't quite as good as the fried version, but they were still tasty!
