Garlic Red Potatoes

Reviewed: Dec. 13, 2012
I love this recipe! The lemon juice just sets it off. I have a Meyer lemon tree with tons of lemons each year. I don't skimp on the lemon juice. WOW! Thanks for the great recipe!

Sausage Red Beans 'n' Rice

Reviewed: Nov. 9, 2011
This recipe saved me from running out to the grocery tonight! I had MOST of the ingredients and it came out awesome! My husband is after 2nds already! BTW... I didn't have green pepper and I forgot to add the garlic, but it came out great!

Carrot Rice

Reviewed: Oct. 24, 2011
This rice was awesome! I made just as the recipe stated. I used matchstick carrots rather than grating them. My husband put some pineapple chunks on his 2nd helping... that was good too!

White Bean Chicken Chili

Reviewed: Oct. 3, 2010
Wonderful! I made a few changes... I added a bag of matchstick carrots at the garlic and onion stage and let them cook together. Also, I couldn't find canned tomatillos but the produce had fresh ones, so I bought 6... I have never used them before, but I washed and diced them. I beleive they add a little tart flavor to the chili which is nice! I also used a whole carton of reduced sodium chicken broth and 6 15oz cans of northern beans. Brought to a boil and then put on low for about 4 hours. It cooked down and the flavors emproved as it cooked. VERY YUMMY!

Boilermaker Tailgate Chili

Reviewed: Oct. 12, 2009
I chose to make this chili because of all the 5 star reviews. I followed the recipe exactly. Unfortunately, I have a weak stomach and this was entirely too spicy for me (I should have known when it called for 1/4 cup of chili powder!). The flavor was good (the reason for a 2 star rather than 1), but the spices are over the top. My husband ate 2 bowls last night and just sent me a text message this morning that he can still taste it. If I were to make this again I would only use maybe a tablespoon of the chili powder and adjust it up if necessary. If you like very spicy things this recipe is probably for you, but if you have acid reflux or get heartburn easily, beware!!

Japanese Chicken Wings

Reviewed: Feb. 15, 2009
These are awesome wings. I've made them twice. The first time I pan fried like the recipe says and I made extra sauce. I ended up with a lot of extra sauce which I ended up discarding. This time, I floured the wings, sprayed with PAM and baked for 40 minutes. Then I put the sauce on the wings and baked another 40 minutes. I basted throughout the cooking time. The wings were great this way too!

Easy Butter Chicken

Reviewed: Jan. 22, 2009
This chicken was good. It made enough dinners for the 2 of us for about 4 days. The flavor was good, but not spectacular. This is a great "everyday" recipe, but I probably wouldn't make it for a special dinner with company. Thank you!

Spinach Lentil Soup

Reviewed: Jan. 22, 2009
I made this soup tonight and it was fabulous! I made some alterations, however I don't believe it changed the flavor of the original recipe. I added an additional 1/2 cup of carrots - I used matchstick (next time I may use more since I love carrots in the soup). Also, the jar of salsa I used was medium spice and was 24oz rather than 16 - I didn't want to keep the left over salsa so I threw it all in. WONDERFUL flavor... this is a keeper for me!

Turkey Brine

Reviewed: Nov. 28, 2008
I was very excited about making my turkey with this brine because of all the reviews. I followed the recipe, except that I used chicken broth rather than vegetable broth. I also used 1/4 cup less sea salt since I ran out. I roasted the turkey (20 lb) in a bag with lemon, celery, onion and carrot stuffed in the cavity and around the bird. We oiled the outside with olive oil and pats of butter under the skin on the breast. We roasted the turkey in a convection oven for about 3.25 hours - until the temp of the thigh was 180. About an hour later when we carved the turkey for dinner, the meat was a little dry. The flavor was wonderful, but the white meat was dryer than when we just roast in a bag only. I don't think I did anything wrong and I understand the theory of brining, but it didn't work for us. It was a lot of extra work for the little difference we saw. Roasting in a bag has always worked for us and we'll stick to that. Thank you.

Garden Veggie Pizza Squares

Reviewed: Sep. 30, 2008
I have made this several different ways, but this is by far the easiest. I had a potluck at work and someone requested that I make this since they liked it the last time I made it for a pitch in. I couldn't find my recipe so I went with this one. I accidentally put the entire packet of ranch dressing mix in the cream cheese. Since I was worried that the ranch mix would be overwhelming, I spread a layer of sour cream over the top of the cream cheese on the pizza. Also, I grind up my veggies very fine... to the consistancy of crumbs. I got rave reviews from my co-workers!

Delicious Ham and Potato Soup

Reviewed: Sep. 29, 2008
I made this soup exactly like the instructions. I used white pepper rather than black. It has a little heat behind it, but not to much. My husband LOVED this soup... He said the flavor was outstanding. I'm going to keep this recipe in my "keeper" book! Thank You!

Peach Cobbler II

Reviewed: Sep. 28, 2008
I made this without any changes. It was very good, but a little "soupie" in the middle and it was VERY sweet. I'm going to try this again with less sugar and water like the other reviewers noted.

Blackberry Cobbler

Reviewed: Sep. 2, 2008
This recipe came out great. I served it for a Labor Day get together and the whole thing was gone in about 1/2 hour. I made the recipe exactly according to the directions. I may have had slightly over 2 cups of blackberries because I used a bag of frozen and didn't want any left over. Very tasty!

Zucchini Parmigiana

Reviewed: Aug. 5, 2008
My husband raved on and on about this dish. I didn't quite follow the recipe to a "T". I doubled the recipe ingredients, used 5 zucchini's and I didn't have tomato sauce so I used only 1 jar of Ragu mushroom spaghetti sauce. I also had to use a larger pan and it JUST fit! It was wonderful! My husband thought it was vegetable lasagna at first. Will make again for sure!

Pineapple Chicken Tenders

Reviewed: Jul. 28, 2008
I fixed this last night and it came out great. I did leave it on the grill a bit to long so be sure to take it off after 10 minutes or cut into one of the pieces to check for doneness.

Black Beans and Rice

Reviewed: Dec. 1, 2007
Great recipe. I did add 2 fresh chopped tomatos and could have added 3 or 4 based on the amount. I used 2 cans of black beans which I rinsed off before adding. Overall a wonderful recipe - will make again.
