Spicy Garlic Lime Chicken

Reviewed: May 19, 2005
I will make this easy recipe again but with some changes. I loved the spice mixture but it wasn't enough to adequately cover/rub four breasts so I had make another batch. Also, way, way, WAY too much garlic powder at the end. It overpowered the other flavors, especially the lime. I will reduce the amount of garlic powder and double the other ingredients in the future.

Laura's Quick Slow Cooker Turkey Chili

Reviewed: May 5, 2008
This is a great base for a slow cooker turkey chili. If you omit the red pepper flakes and replace one can of the tomato soup with a can of tomatoes with green chilis, this recipe is VERY kid friendly. When I want a more spicy version (I love spicy food!), I only add between 1/4 and 1/2 teaspoons of the red pepper flakes. An entire teaspoon simmering all day in a slow cooker will blow out your sinuses! In addition to the black beans, I also used both dark and light red kidney beans to make it more festive. This recipe is a keeper in my recipe box. Thanks!

Brine for Smoked Salmon

Reviewed: Apr. 2, 2006
Very unique recipe! Takes a bit of time to prepare the brine but it was worth it. I'm glad I halved the recipe...it makes A LOT! I smoked two salmon filets and one halibut filet. Both came out juicy and flaky. Yum!

Smoked Herb Chicken

Reviewed: Apr. 2, 2006
Very easy and delicious recipe. I smoked a large roaster for about 4.5 to 5 hours and the chicken was very juicy. I could not taste the herbs throughout the chicken, though; only on the breast area where the herbs were stuffed under the skin. Next time I will try inserting the butter and herbs throughout the entire bird so there will be more of those yummy, herbal bites. Thanks!

Hot Italian Giardiniera

Reviewed: Feb. 6, 2006
Excellent, versatile recipe! I made this only 24 hours ago and I've been snacking on it, already. I love giardiniera, but when I purchase the hot version in the supermarket, it doesn't always have enough of the veggies that I like. This recipe solves THAT problem! I like to eat giardiniera as a snack or serve as an appetizer, so I cut the veggies into bite-size chunks. Otherwise, I followed the recipe as written. Next time I will add fresh, whole mushrooms. And, since this made a gallon size jar of veggies, I'm going to process some of this batch in jars in a hot water bath to preserve some for future snacking. Thank you, so much, for sharing!

Piggy Wiggys

Reviewed: Nov. 21, 2006
A variation I use as appetizers: cut each crescent roll into two triangles, otherwise they are too big for the sausage; brush the top of each triangle with your favorite BBQ sauce; place one sausage on the long side of each triangle and roll up; bake. Addictive!

Scalloped Potatoes II

Reviewed: Oct. 1, 2006
Finally! REAL scalloped potatoes! YEA!!! Excellent, old-fashioned recipe like the women in my family made generations ago. I had lost my recipe and could not for the life of me remember the key ingredient: flour! DUH! Thank you for posting.

Texas Christmas Pickles

Reviewed: Dec. 8, 2005
I had a blast making these pickles! They are so close to tasting like Tony Packo's Sweet Hots. I made two gallons, one jar cut into spears and the other cut into thick slices. I like the slices better and they were to my liking after only five days. I am going to experiment with about half the sugar and a little less garlic, next time. The Tabasco is perfect, though. I processed some of the finished pint jars in a boiling water bath for ten minutes so I can keep them longer. Thank you for sharing this recipe!

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

Reviewed: Apr. 1, 2006
The jerky was perfect! I tried the marinade with turkey legs and chicken thighs and YUM! The meat melts off the bones! I'm making it again today and I'm going to fill my smoker with chicken, turkey, and short ribs. Delicious!

Easy Hawaiian Chicken Packets

Reviewed: Apr. 25, 2006
I love cooking in foil packets because it's fast and easy. This recipe is no exception! I grilled the packets and the chicken was super moist. The combination of the veggies, sauce, and pineapple is very tasty. I served the contents over rice (be sure to pour the juice from the packet over everything...yum!) This freezes exceptionally well, too.

Mexican Hot Dip

Reviewed: Nov. 21, 2006
I make a very similar dip using a glass pie plate. I spread just 1 pkg cream cheese to form a "crust," then pour in one can of chili WITHOUT beans and spread over cream cheese. Top with the chopped black olives and a small can of chopped Ortega green chilis, shredded cheddar cheese, and bake until bubbly. So easy and always a hit!

Grilled Potatoes and Onion

Reviewed: Feb. 6, 2006
Sorry...the red onions ruined this recipe for me. I think red onions should be reserved for fresh recipes, not cooked. I didn't enjoy the taste. However, I tried this recipe again, last night, using yellow onions and I added fresh mushrooms. Huge improvement and much more to my liking.

Super Duper Chocolate Cookies

Reviewed: Oct. 2, 2007
I've been making a similar cookie for years, which I got off of a box of margarine. The only difference is that I use melted margarine instead of shortening and I omit the nuts. They are easy and fun to make and deliciously chewy!

Apple Walnut Cake

Reviewed: Oct. 24, 2006
Didn't change a thing and LOVED this cake. Took it to work and got nothing but praise. Very moist and, though I considered using a topping, it didn't need a glaze or frosting...perfect just the way it's written. This is now an Autumn favorite! Thanks!

Baked Teriyaki Chicken

Reviewed: May 17, 2006
I have been using a recipe very similar to this for years on chicken wings. They go over GREAT at parties, etc. I do not baste the chicken pieces, though. I pour all the sauce over them and occasionally turn the pieces while they are baking. One hour does the trick but, prepared this way, you can bake longer and the sauce really sticks and caramelizes. Yum!

Zesty Slow Cooker Chicken Barbecue

Reviewed: Sep. 10, 2005
I did not like this recipe, at all. The sauce was watery and oily and had a sour flavor (probably a result of adding the salad dressing), and the meat ended up VERY dry. I've had better results just slow cooking in plain BBQ sauce, or poaching the chicken and then topping with warm BBQ sauce. I would not recommend this recipe. Sorry!

Reviewed: Jul. 22, 2007
I didn't like the textures or the flavor combination.. I'll not be using this recipe, or any of the others like it on this site, again.

Annie's Turkey Salad

Reviewed: Dec. 1, 2007
Delicious! This recipe is very similar to my tuna salad recipe, except for the eggs, but the eggs make it very similar to my potato salad recipe...a perfect combination of ingredients for a yummy change of pace. I bet this would be equally as good using leftover chicken! A keeper and I have saved to my recipe box, as I'll be making again and again...thanks!
