Taco Seasoning I

Reviewed: Mar. 18, 2014
Very good.I had all the spices on hand. Didn't add red pepper flakes, personal preference. Also, cut back on salt and pepper. (The package mixes have way too much salt for me.) I also added some cornstarch dissolved in water to thicken up the consistency. I would definitely recommend.

Chicken and Stuffing Casserole

Reviewed: Jan. 19, 2014
This recipe gets 4 stars for ease and simplicity. However, it does need sautéed onions and celery added. I used a 12 oz. bag of stuffing and added a little more chicken broth.

Red Enchilada Sauce

Reviewed: Jan. 6, 2014
The family liked this enchilada sauce. I left out the salsa and basil, and did not add the salt. My chili powder contains salt. Used Mexican oregano. I will use the recipe from now on.

Shepherd's Pie VI

Reviewed: Mar. 17, 2012
After reading several reviews, I deviated from the recipe...I used about 1 1/2 pkgs. brown gravy mix with 1 1/2 cups water, a small can of peas and carrots, and 2 packages buttery flavored instant mashed potatoes (one package barely covered the meat layer). My husband loved it, and said he would eat this any time. I loved it to. Thanks for the recipe. Also thanks to other reviewers with their time-saving tips.

Olive Lovers Dip

Reviewed: Sep. 4, 2011
I LOVE olives. I have been making this dip (minus the ketchup) for years, I, too, add some of the olive brine to thin out the cream cheese. I rate this recipe a four star because of the ketchup, which is, in my opinion, an unnecessary ingredient.

Apple Pie Cider

Reviewed: Jul. 29, 2011
The great picture and recipe title remind me of my favorite television show, Justified, and one of the characters, Maggs Bennett. The drink looks awesome!

Foil-Baked Chicken

Reviewed: Jul. 14, 2011
What a disappointment! If you follow the recipe (as I did), you will have chicken pieces coated with gelatinous-gloppy goo. Not appetizing at all. I have cooked with cornstarch many times, and I knew 1/2 cup was way too much.....but I followed the recipe exactly. We scraped off the goop and tasted the chicken. It had a good flavor. That's about all I can say. So, be warned to cut way back on the cornstarch.

Garlic Grits

Reviewed: Apr. 9, 2011
I, like reviewer Joni, made Garlic Cheese Grits for years using the Kraft Garlic Cheese Roll. Kraft discontinued making the garlic cheese roll and I went into mourning. This recipe is very similar, very good. The only changes I made were using two eggs instead of one, and using 1/4 tsp. garlic powder instead of the chopped garlic. Hint 1: To make smooth grits, as opposed to lumpy grits, when the water comes to a boil, slowly add grits while continuously stirring with a whisk. don;t forget to add the salt. Whisk until grits come to a boil, then turn temp to low until grits are thickened and cooked, stirring frequently. I place a lid loosely over the grits, because when the grits start to thicken the mixture can "pop up" and burn your arm. Hint 2: It is important to temper the egg(s) before adding to the hot grits, or there will be scrambled egg pieces in the grits. To temper egg(s), whisk egg(s) in a small bowl thoroughly. Pour some of the grit mixture, about 1/2 cup, into another small bowl or measuring cup. While whisking eggs, slowly pour the grit mixture until all is incorporated. Then, add this mixture to the grits. Lastly, I do prefer the processed cheese product for this recipe. (I know.)

Lemon-Lime Soda Gelatin Salad

Reviewed: Nov. 24, 2010
Love it! I don't know why other's salads have been runny. I followed ingredient amounts, except I didn't use nuts (allergic) or mayo. However, as another poster stated, use canned pineapple. Fresh pineapple will make gelatin not congeal. To get cream cheese to incorporate into the salad well: Boil soda, add marshmallows till melted. In a mixing bowl, whip cream cheese with mixer until soft and smooth. Then pour in a small amount of lime mixture. Mix. Scrape sides of bowl. Add more lime mixture, mix. Repeat until all is mixed and smooth. This really doesn't take much time. Then mix in pineapple and juice. Then, fold in whipped topping. Chill about an hour. Should be slightly congealed. Stir from bottom to top to get the pineapple that has settled to the bottom. Then pour into the dish you want to serve it in and chill till set. Best to make the day before.

Yummy Honey Chicken Kabobs

Reviewed: May 10, 2010
Good. A solid 3 star. Not a recipe that I would praise up and down to the girls at work the next day. However, the short, readily available ingredient list is a definite plus. So, for that I would rate 4 stars.

Chili Rubbed Pork Tenderloin With Apricot Ginger Glaze

Reviewed: Jan. 23, 2010
Five-star delicious. I had two 1-pound tenderloins that I roasted in the oven at 425 degrees for 30 minutes. I sauced the tenderloins after 25 minutes, then cooked for the remaining five minutes. It was too cold outside to grill. I didn't add the lime or cilantro because I didn't have any. The pork was perfectly cooked, moist, and tender. A definite keeper.

Corn Dog Muffins

Reviewed: Sep. 26, 2009
These do taste just like corn dogs! I sliced the hot dogs lengthwise, then cut off one third of the length. Placed two slices in mini-loaf pans...fit perfectly. They cooked in the time as stated, however, the hot dog ends curled up too much. Still tasted good. Will cook in mini-muffin pan next time. Great football-watching-at-home food. We put mustard on them.

Baby Back Ribs

Reviewed: Sep. 2, 2009
Wow! I wanted to post a picture, but they disappeared...nothing left but bones. I marinated the ribs with my favorite bbq sauce for a short time, baked as directed, and finished on the grill. I did go to YouTube to watch a video demonstrating how to remove the membrane on the back side of the ribs....very easy to do, once you know how. Maybe there is a demo on this site, I didn't find one.

Aunt Blanche's Blueberry Muffins

Reviewed: Aug. 27, 2009
These are good. I noticed this recipe has the exact same ingredients as many other blueberry muffin recipes on this website. This must be the "standard way". My muffins were very flat, not the beautiful domed ones I had hoped for. Maybe I should check the date of my baking powder BEFORE I bake. October '08! No wonder the muffins didn't rise that great. So, I'll try again..........

Cadillac Pimento Cheese

Reviewed: Jul. 10, 2009
OK pimento cheese. I've never tried it with cream cheese before....I like it. This needs to be served room temperature because straight from the refrigerator, it is not spreadable.

Spaghetti Salad III

Reviewed: Jul. 6, 2009
Our extended family LOVES this cold pasta salad. However, like others, I use McCormick's Salad Supreme - to taste, and I omit the cheese. We just had this at our July 4th celebration. We've used fat-free Zesty Italian, Reduced Fat Zesty Italian, and the real deal Zesty Italian dressing. While the fat-free it OK, the real deal is all that.

Key Lime Pie VII

Reviewed: Jun. 22, 2009
Tangy-sweet deliciousness, plus it doesn't get any easier than this. The hardest part was squeezing all the limes. Next time, I'll use Nellie and Joe's Key Lime Juice. I saw it featured on a Food Network show featuring the Florida Keys, and I found it at my local grocery store.
