Happy Shrimp

Reviewed: Mar. 15, 2011
Absolutely divine! I replaced half the butter with olive oil and used whole milk instead of cream, because that's what I had on hand. I made 1 1/2 the amount of sauce, added a little cajun seasoning plus mushrooms & broccoli. We served with fettucine. This was delicious! The sauce is quite light but with a nice richness. Thank you so much for a great recipe. We will be making this often!

Baked Potato Skins

Reviewed: Mar. 14, 2011
These are great, and SO easy! I made them eaven easier - instead of brushing with oil, I sprayed with non-stick spray and sprinkled with a specialty garlic/salt mixture I had on hand. Topped as stated - just perfect! And so nice that you don't have to fry them.

Burrito Pie

Reviewed: Mar. 11, 2011
This was good. Like other reviewers, I spread the beans on the tortillas before placing them face-down - so layered beef mix, then cheese, then beans, tortillas. Topped with lettuce, sour cream & salsa. I divided everything into three small casseroles & froze two of them for later. And I used venison burger for the meat. My only complaint was there was something "sweet" about it. I'm sure it was from the tortillas because I've gotten that same "taste" before wit other tortilla dishes - may just be that particular brand, or maybe I just just use a hotter sauce in the meat mixture.

Hot and Spicy Pecans

Reviewed: Mar. 11, 2011
These were good and really easy. I followed the recipe exactly. I felt like they may need just a little something else, but no idea what. I may add a bit more worcestershire & cayenne next time - because, yes, there will probably be a next time.

Slow Cooker Texas Pulled Pork

Reviewed: Mar. 8, 2011
This is AWESOME! This will be my go-to recipe for pulled pork from now on. The only change I made was omitting the oil as I just couldn't see the need for it and reduced the thyme to a little less than a teaspoon. After shredding the meat, I poured the liquid into a measuring cup which separates the grease from the other liquid, then poured about half of the liquid back in with the meat. There will be a LOT of liquid, which is fine, but you don't need that much in the end. Try this! You will not be disappointed!

Slow Cooker Pinto Bean Bonanza

Reviewed: Feb. 28, 2011
This is really great. I have to admit, not exactly what I was expecting, but very tasty! I doubled the recipe. Also I went ahead & soaked the beans overnight then realized I didn't know how much water I'd used. So I had to guestimate on the liquid. I ended up using 1 qt + 1 can of chicken broth (instead of water) plus about 2-3 cups of water. I also forgot about the green onion, but doubt that mattered. Great Beans!

Slow Cooker Chicken Cacciatore

Reviewed: Feb. 28, 2011
We loved this. I added 1 can of Italian-style stewed tomatoes and 1 can tomato paste as my breasts were big & I some reviewers indicated they could have used more sauce. I also threw in one stalk of celery, chopped and a few chopped baby carrots (because I had them). Hubby particularly loved this recipe and has asked for it to be added to our regular rotation. Thanks, Rosie!

The "Whiz-Wit" Dip

Reviewed: Feb. 7, 2011
Really Yum! Slicing & chopping the steak was a pain, but certainly worth it (wish I could just buy chip steak!). This was a big hit at Super Bowl party & I've been instructed to plan to bring this for tailgating in the Fall. Served with sliced/toasted hogie rolls. Tastes just like Philly Cheesesteak! Thanks, JJsMama!

Southwestern Egg Rolls

Reviewed: Feb. 7, 2011
Honestly, I'm giving 5 stars based on the filling alone. Good Gravy! This stuff's YUMMY! I tripled the recipe with no changes other than I sprinkled my chicken breasts with Adobo before cooking them. Rolled in egg roll wrappers, sprayed with non-stick spray & baked @ 375. I just couldn't get the wrapper "crispy" like I thought it should be. Now granted, the original recipe called for tortillas & deep frying, so I'm not taking anything away for that. BUT I made quesadillas with the extra filling - and Man Oh Man!! Seriously good eatin'! Next time, I'll just go the quesadilla route & keep the filling the same.

Easy Garlic Broiled Chicken

Reviewed: Jan. 31, 2011
This is very good. Super-easy and everything I always have on hand. I used bone-in chicken and baked @ 375 for about 45 minutes, then broiled for 5-10 more. The meat was very tender & juicy. When our plans changed last minute, I threw everything into a ziploc and left it to marinade overnight, which worked fine, just had to warm sauce a bit to get it back in the pan (butter had solidified again). I do think it needed just a tad more kick, so next time I will add some cajun seasoning (salt-free) or maybe red pepper.

Shrimp Scampi Bake

Reviewed: Jan. 24, 2011
Very good. I did add about 1/2c white wine and salt-free cajun seasoning. I felt it still needed just a little more flavor, which I think would have been accomplished had I halved the butter. Next time I will do that. So easy and so versatile. Definitely a keeper!

Condiment Chops

Reviewed: Jan. 19, 2011
I also made these for recipe group. I did decrease the cayenne to about 1 tsp, and didn't have sage, so I added a tsp of Italian Seasoning which had the sage in it. I baked them covered for 30 min @ 350, then uncovered for another 10 @ 375. They were good. I thought the mustard was a little overpowering, but still good - we all cleaned our plates! I will say that my chops were quite thick, more than an inch, so definitely decrease the time if yours are thinner. I did skip the pan-frying part, as I couldn't see where this sauce would truly "glaze".

Authentic Louisiana Red Beans and Rice

Reviewed: Jan. 18, 2011
Quite good. I made per the recipe except added more bay leaf, more cajun seasoning & a little worcestershire. I used wild hog smoked sausage as well, and of course I "mushed" a lot of the beans after they'd gotten soft. The one thing it definitely needs is salt! But wait until near the end as it may depend on the particular sausage you use. I do think using broth in place of water would have added more flavor as well. Overall, great recipe!

Beef Stroganoff III

Reviewed: Nov. 24, 2010
This was wonderful. I'd give 5 stars, but per JJH's review I marinated in red wine and added 1/3c cream cheese & 1/3c sour cream and no wine at the end. I'll be making this again!!!

Alligator Chili

Reviewed: Nov. 16, 2010
Awesome, Doug! I used 2 cans of diced tomatoes in place of crushed because that's what was on hand. Served it at "Wild Game Day" - not a single bit left!!! We'll do this again for sure!

Great! I added some chicken because I didn't have enough duck & used venison smoked sausage. Added a little cajun seasoning for kick. It was delicious!
