Grilled Bacon-Wrapped Corn on the Cob

Reviewed: Jul. 16, 2009
I clean the "hairs" from the corn, wrap the bacon, and pull the husk up over. Flavor is perfect every time. I think I'll make some tonight!!!

Enchilada Sauce

Reviewed: Jan. 8, 2011
I gave 4 stars because of the pulp prep on this. Like many other reviewers, I just seeded, removed stems, and toasted on comal before soaking. No problems with color. For bitterness, add a little sugar till its to your liking.

Reviewed: Feb. 18, 2011
I love these beans. I throw ingredients in my crockpot and let cook overnight and they mash up perfectly. I also add salt towards the end of cooking.

Pina Colada III

Reviewed: Aug. 3, 2012
Liked this recipe better than some others I tested off the internet. By other reviewer recommendations, I used cream of coco. Didn't have pineapple juice onhand so ended up using diced pineapple from can. We really enjoyed this drink!

Amazing Whole Wheat Pizza Crust

Reviewed: Mar. 13, 2011
Went with reviewers tips and used 3 1/4 c King Arthur W/W white flour and added 2 tsp pizza seasonings I found at my local Winco store (think it has traditional italian seasonings with pepper flakes). I've never baked with yeast and so this is my first attempt. I was very pleased with results and also ease of directions. I made 4 individual pizzas 2 pepperoni, 1 cheese, and 1 BBQ chicken. Big hit with the family and healthy too. can't wait to try again with other topping combinations, using honey, and freezing.

Candy Coated Pecans

Reviewed: Jan. 7, 2011
I literally made these on my lunch break. So quick and easy and they were delicious. I made them for salad, but everyone ended up eating them like candy, so I'm gonna have to make another batch. TFS

Tartar Sauce II

Reviewed: Mar. 23, 2011
I love this tartar sauce. I didn't have time to boil an egg, so I left that out. I really loved the authentic flavor and I won't be buying jar sauce anymore. I'm really trying to eat as much homemade food as possible. I even used this with hand made mayo (ala Julia Childs).

Ham Tetrazzini 4.5

Reviewed: Apr. 10, 2012
Was not in the mood for another ham sandwich, so I was pleasantly surprised to see this recipe on the main page. With less than $5, i was able to transform leftover ham into a nice pasta dish for four. I did exact recipe and giving it a 4 as is...then later added sauteed mushroom and pepper. Cream of mushroom w/ roasted garlic was on sale, so I used that. Next time I would like to use cream or half and half and maybe parm reggiano, for another twist to this nice base dish. Served with toast spread with homemade roasted garlic butter. In the category for easy peasy and done in a jiffy, this get's a 5.

Best Ever Popcorn Balls

Reviewed: Oct. 28, 2011
In terms of ease I say a 4 and flavor i would say 3.5 I was able to make 40 in about 45 mins in two seperate batches. I used other suggestions and added vanilla and popped 3/4 air popped pocorn all together. This way they weren't too sweet or gummy. Also added food coloring to make orange. Made these in the morning before work to pass out to the daycare costume parade and will probably use again for son's Harvest Party. TFS

Sour Cream Pork Chops

Reviewed: Oct. 12, 2010
Easy recipe for a mom on the go. Started this on my lunch break and was ready by the time I got home. The kids loved it. I thought the flavors were fine so long as you season your chops they way you like. We ate with california blend veggies and brown rice. (didn't have time for mashed potatoes).

Lentil Soup

Reviewed: Oct. 12, 2010
The base recipe is very good. My minor changes were omitting spinach and vinegar as I had neither on hand. I also added a couple cubes of beef broth cubes and 1/8 of homemade chili powder. I always add a little chili powder to my soups. TFS...I've always wanted to make lentil soup.
