Maple Salmon

Reviewed: Nov. 3, 2012
I read the reviews and decided to omit the garlic salt in favor of two more fresh cloves of garlic. I would have loved to have added fresh ginger, but I didn't have any on hand, so I added some ground ginger as well as some chipotle powder for some extra kick - about an 1/8 tsp. I baked it foil for about 10 min, then uncovered it for the last 5 min. I used a bag of salmon fillets and served this with green tea jasmine rice and green beans. Absolutely delicious!!

Chipotle Crusted Pork Tenderloin

Reviewed: Apr. 1, 2012
we used this rub on some ribs we smoked tonight. Fabulous!!! I did cut back on the chipotle seasoning to just 1 TBS and doubled everything else. There was a good balance of heat and sweet with the brown sugar. My new favorite rub!!

Brunch Enchiladas

Reviewed: Dec. 31, 2011
these were good, although a little milder than I anticipated. I added some fresh mushrooms to the green onion and bell pepper mix, which we really enjoyed. I think some green chili's would have been really good as well. Do let these sit overnight as that is what appears to thicken the sauce up. I didn't, and they had to bake longer than the recipe states.

Easy Texas Chili

Reviewed: Oct. 29, 2011
My family and I really enjoyed this! I did make small changes, like just 1 TBS of chopped jalapeno, cutting back the chili powder to 1/4 cup, and adding 1 TBS of cumin and 1 TBS of paprika. It had a really nice kick to it, without it being to hot for kids. Definitely a keeper!

Slow Cooker Chicken Marrakesh

Reviewed: Sep. 27, 2011
this was very good. I liked the flavors of the seasoning. I think next time I will leave out the carrots. The sweet potatoes provided more than enough flavor

Ropa Vieja in a Slow Cooker

Reviewed: Sep. 27, 2011
This also turns out well if you need to cook it in the oven! I had defrosted the meat the night before, but forgot to put it in my slow cooker. I set my oven at 275 and let it cook for a little over 2 hours. It was delicious!! Very moist and tender. Keep in mind, every oven cooks differently!

Frijoles II

Reviewed: Sep. 6, 2010
As other reviewers have noted, these beans do need to be soaked overnight or do the quick soak method if you don't have the overnight time. My one substitution is I use cured salt pork . I cut it up uncooked into chunks and cook it in the beans. Wonderful flavor without tasting like bacon and beans. I also find that even with a good overnight soak, I typically let these beans cook for about 8 hours. I have an older crockpot though, so that may be a contributing factor. My family loves these beans and I am frequently asked for the recipe if I bring them to a potluck or serve them at a barbecue!

Big Soft Ginger Cookies

Reviewed: Dec. 1, 2009
These are wonderful!! I followed the directions exactly the first time, and they turned out really good. This second time, I substituted 1/4 of the white sugar for brown, used 2 TBS of molasses, omitted the water, and substituted butter for margarin, and my family loved them even more! I use a 1 TBS dough scoop to get them the perfect size. I also take a orange juice glass, dipped in sugar, to lightly press them down. Next time, I'm going to try the orange juice as another reviewer suggested.

Peanut Butter Cookies IV

Reviewed: Nov. 24, 2009
This is a really good, moist cookie recipe! There is one minor adjustment that I made - I turned the oven down from 375 to 350. At 10 minutes they will look slightly underdone. Let them cool for 3-5 minutes on the cookie sheet, then remove them to a cooling rack for another 10 minutes. Cookies always continue to bake after they're first pulled from the oven. This prevents over baked cookies! This is the rule I follow when making all cookies and it works every time.

Spicy Pumpkin Chili

Reviewed: Nov. 23, 2009
This was really good! I made one minor change to ensure my family would eat it. I only used great white northern beans and black beans since my kids don't care for kidney. I drained the beans, and while the pumpkin pure thickens it nicely, it wasn't to thick. Also, I ended up doubling the ground beef and the seasoning as a result. I didn't find this to be sweet at all. Wonderful chili for something a little different!

Jerky Lover's Jerky - Sweet, Hot and Spicy!

Reviewed: Jun. 28, 2009
this is fantastic!! I was surprised at the reviewer who didn't think it smelled good while dehydrating because my entire family kept begging to know when it would be done! The seasoning on this is just right - no to sweet, not to spicy - the perfect combination of both for a jerky.

Big Al's K.C. Bar-B-Q Sauce

Reviewed: May 20, 2009
My family and I love this tangy barbeque sauce! I've made it as the directions state, and it was good. When I made it the second time, I opted for 3 cups of tomato sauce and 1 cup of ketchup to cut back on the sugar. Both ways were excellent! I plan to use this on a roast in the crockpot to make barbecued beef sandwiches next. Yummy!!

Blueberry Coffee Cake I

Reviewed: May 9, 2009
I brought this to a mother/daughter tea today, and it received rave reviews! I was concerned that I didn't have enough batter to fill my bunt pan, but it turned out perfect. I also followed the previous advice to use 3/4 buttermilk and 1 1/2 cups of blueberries. This worked well for me. The cake was moist and yummy. I also used frozen blueberries, as that was what was available to me, and they worked just fine.

Spinach and Strawberry Salad

Reviewed: Apr. 13, 2009
This was very good, and reminded me of the salad that is served with the grilled salmon at Mimi's Cafe. I did add a 1/4 cup of red wine vinegar for some additional flavor. Next time, I'll cut the sesame seeds back as that flavor was a little too prominent for me. I would also recommend doubling the dressing, as there was barely enough for our family of 7, particularly if you want leftovers! Overall, a very good recipe.

Easter Eggs

Reviewed: Apr. 13, 2009
My family raved about these. My husband thought the coconut ones tasted like Mounds candy bars on steroids. My kids in peanut butter heaven over the others. I used a dough scoop that was approximately 2 TBS to get consistency in size, and this recipe made about a dozen of each. My family has asked that we make these every Easter from now on!

Sausage Mushroom Quiche

Reviewed: Apr. 13, 2009
This is delicious! I made this for Easter morning. I loved that it made two pies and I was able to put them both in the oven at the same time. I didn't realize when I bought my pie crust that I bought deep dish crusts! So I cooked an extra half pound of sausage, another carton of mushrooms, and double the egg and cheese mixture. Since I wasn't planning to double (except for the mushrooms, since they always cook down so much) I didn't have enough of the heavy whipping cream so I substituted regular whipping cream, which worked just fine. I'll be using the regular whipping cream from now on. This dish was creamy and smooth. My husband asked that we eat this for more than just holidays!

Open-Faced Broiled Roast Beef Sandwich

Reviewed: Apr. 8, 2009
My family LOVED this recipe. I should note that I used hoagie rolls, instead of the sliced bread that was called for. I also omitted the hot sauce - not intentionally, but I discovered I was out when I went to make these. I think the pepper jack cheese has more than enough pep and I will not be adding the hot sauce in the future. I used 24 oz. of sauerkraut and doubled the mustard, barbecue sauce. I was able to make 7 sandwiches out of this.
