Mexican Botana Platter

Reviewed: Jan. 27, 2013
Just as with Cajun-style shrimp boils, family & friends gathered around the table helping themselves to a huge, scrumptious botana platter can evoke fond memories which long outlast the meals! Excellent recipe, excellent outcome! Added a beautiful Mexican flan for dessert. For those concerned about the leftover guacamole getting yucky, considered adding guacamole seasoning that can be found in packets at supermarkets; it keeps my guacamole edible for several days.

Angela's Awesome Enchiladas

Reviewed: Aug. 25, 2012
Excellent recipe! I have time to cook only on weekends and have leftovers all week. I was concerned that the flour tortillas would get soggy pretty fast - and they did. I'll be trying these again today with regular sized corn tortillas, but to save time, will probably layer rather than roll. This is a keeper!!

Baked Pork Chops I

Reviewed: Aug. 3, 2012
I tried this with chops and with steaks when I accidentally thawed a couple of small steaks. The pork was so lean that it was slightly dry, but the steaks were great! Used other reviewers suggestions and it was just as good as leftovers.

Traditional Osso Buco

Reviewed: Feb. 11, 2012
Never had this dish before and I wasn't disappointed with it - I think the leftovers had an even better flavor. This was my first time cooking with veal shank and perhaps I just don't know what to look for, but the amount of fat/grease in the finished dish was considerable. I'd hate to ditch the recipe because of the fat.

Mashed Sweet Potatoes

Reviewed: Nov. 26, 2010
I like sugar as much as any sugar-holic, but don't care for candy-sweet dishes with a meal. This recipe was exactly what I wanted - the taste of sweet potatoes that wasn't drowned out by sugar, nuts, and the dreaded marshmallows. After washing and piercing them, I placed the potatoes in glass pan with a bit of water, covered with pierced plastic wrap and microwaved them as another reader suggested. The skin slipped off easily and to avoid the issues of strings, I sliced them into disks, then mashed using a hand masher. Based on the sage advice of others, I added the remaining ingredients incrementally until I achieved the desired consistency and taste. they were going so fast that I hid a couple of servings in the fridge to enjoy with the turkey leftovers today. Many thanks to the contributor - this recipe will be on our table for decades to come!!

Yummy Sweet Potato Casserole

Reviewed: Nov. 20, 2009
FYI - Consider using a ricer to squeeze the hot potatoes through to decrease the 'strings'. I've been using a similar recipe for years and an inexpensive ricer definitely makes a difference. I've used canned and fresh potatoes - go with fresh!

Refrigerator Cookies

Reviewed: Feb. 4, 2007
Sweet with being too sweet. Simple to make. My husband and I both enjoyed them. Freezing the dough was very handy. Unfortunately, candied cherries aren't readily available after the holiday season, so the next time around, I plan to stock up and keep them in the freeer so I can make these during the year. Thanks Dottie!

Bacon Wrapped Barbeque Shrimp

Reviewed: Jul. 10, 2006
I've prepared a similar appetizer that involved making a small cut down the back of a large or jumbo peeled shrimp and inserting a slice of mild jalapeno pepper before wrapping with bacon. I've found that by winding 1/3 of a bacon slice, starting at one end and finishing at the other end to achieve a single thickness, the bacon has a better chance of cooking adequately and evenly. To cook, I heat the oven temp on the broil setting, add the wrapped shrimp, cook for 2 minutes, turn the shrimp over and broil for another 2 minutes, then turn the oven off and allow the shrimp to finish cooking as the temp gradually decreases. By the time the shrimp begins to turn pink, the bacon will be cooked.
