Creole Shrimp

Reviewed: Mar. 6, 2000
Even my 4 year old loved this recipe! I doubled it thinking I would have left overs, but I was wrong. I served this over zatarain's dirty rice (minus the hamburger) and it was excellent...this will definitely be back on the dinner table soon!

Hot Artichoke Spinach Dip

Reviewed: Apr. 15, 2001
I misplaced my printed version of this recipe and had to contact one of the people I passed it on to to get it back! I've used both the marinated and unmarinated artichoke hearts and everyone loved it both ways! I served it at Christmas and one woman who normally doesn't eat much, plopped in front of the dish and cleaned out our tortilla chip bowl. To top that off, I e-mailed the recipe to another friend, and when we went there for New Year's, guess what she served...!!! It's been pretty much a party staple ever since. Thanks!!!

Jay's Jerk Chicken

Reviewed: Apr. 18, 2001
We had this for dinner the other night with Cajun rice and cucumber salad. I couldn't believe how good it was! I was nervous when I saw the marinade, but it turned out wonderful, thanks for sharing this recipe, it's a keeper!!!

Asian Coleslaw

Reviewed: Jul. 3, 2001
My coworker told me that an Asian salad with a peanut sauce sounded good and that we had to find a recipe for it. I couldn't find anything that sounded good until I ran across this. I added two cups of cooked chicken and 1/2 cup of spanish peanuts, then garnished it with some fried won ton skins and we definitely have a winner!

Soft and Chewy Peanut Butter Cookies

Reviewed: Nov. 25, 2001
The flavor was good. I'm glad that I read reviews before trying this recipe, because I cut back to 2 eggs and added the 1/4 cup of flour. They still turned out flat, so I'll try using only one egg next time. We haven't achieved perfection yet, but it's definitely a good base to work off of!

Spicy Pasta Salad

Reviewed: Nov. 25, 2001
Everyone loved it! My father-in-law made Thanksgiving dinner all by himself, and when I asked if I could bring something, he said 'pasta salad', so I used this recipe. Three people asked for the recipe, and the leftovers got eaten by my kids the next day...they were actually ANGRY when there was none left! Thanks!

Death By Garlic

Reviewed: Nov. 25, 2001
We're true garlic lovers, but I wasn't sure that my husband would like this recipe since it didn't have a 'sauce'. He LOVED it and we took the leftovers to work with us the next day. Great stuff!

Creole Gumbo

Reviewed: Nov. 25, 2001
This was great. I can't believe I forgot to debone the chicken before making the gumbo!!! Nobody cared though, it was THAT good!

Best Big, Fat, Chewy Chocolate Chip Cookie

Reviewed: Nov. 25, 2001
I can't tell you how happy I am that I ignored the few complaints about this recipe and went with the masses! I have no idea what those people were talking about! The one who said that these weren't as good the next day-- I may never be able to say otherwise...I don't think they'll ever last that long! My husband and kids are standing hunched over the oven like vultures right now waiting for those last few cookies to come out!

Corn Dogs

Reviewed: Jul. 14, 2002
I was really surprised when I found out that I had everything to make homemade corndogs on hand. I substituted honey for the sugar and skipped the black pepper and they turned out great. I made some fresh lemonade to go with it. Perfect!

Fry Bread Tacos II

Reviewed: Jan. 19, 2003
I was looking for a ground beef recipe that I could make on short notice (today) with a tight budget and nobody would believe how easy and inexpensive this was! I didn't find the fry bread any more difficult than any of the baking I've done, and although a little messy (both preparation and eating), the results were well worth it! The only complaint I got was that although I doubled the recipe there still wasn't enough!

Crab and Shrimp Louis

Reviewed: Jul. 28, 2003
As a native Californian, I've never seen or heard of a 'true louie' dressing (not to say it doesn't exist). Every restaurant I've ordered this in has had thousand island and that's what I make it with at home. The only thing I really do differently is that I boil the eggs ahead of time and refrigerate them when I make this. I like them much better cold when eating them on salad!

Teriyaki Chicken

Reviewed: Jul. 22, 2004
Teriyaki sauce is so easy to make, it's a wonder more people don't do it from scratch! This is basically the same recipe that my family has passed down, but if you want something a little different, try throwing in a tablespoon of aji mirin (sweet cooking rice wine) or sub brown sugar and add a tablespoon or two of apricot brandy... this one's my favorite and especially good on chicken wings!

Easy Key Lime Pie I

Reviewed: Nov. 5, 2004
This is the easiest recipe ever! My aunt gave me a huge bag of limes from her tree and I did a search to find a recipe to use them in. After I refrigerated this pie and tried it, I made four more and gave them to friends! My husband LOVES this and couldn't believe it when I told him 'it's as easy as scrambling eggs'. I read a post that said the filling doesn't fill up the crust, but if you triple the recipe and use two crusts, it fills them right to the top... I prefer it a little lower though so you can taste the graham cracker crust. Thanks so much for the recipe!

Army SOS Creamed Ground Beef

Reviewed: Aug. 31, 2005
My family is japanese hawaiian and I remember that my aunt used to make a dish similar to this when I was little. Naturally, instead of serving it over egg noodles or toast, we had it with sticky rice. I made this tonight and pretty much followed the recipe as is (I added the bullion a little late... I'm not a big fan and thought it would be fine with just the salt, pepper, worscheshire and an addition of garlic powder, but after a taste test, I realized that it was needed.) I sauteed some onions (I would have put them in, but the kids would have liked it that much less) on the side for my hubby and I because I figured he would want it jazzed up a bit and served a green salad on the side for all of us. My picky 6 year old gobbled it up and declared it the best thing I've ever cooked (last night I made chicken parmegiana from scratch... thanks a lot kid!) My 10 year old said it was great, but he's a foodie and loves just about everything. I really liked it and it brought back memories of my childhood, but my husband said it was "interesting" and that he couldn't get past the way it looked. He said that when he closed his eyes and didn't look at it, he thought it was good. Oh well, three out of four... overruled!

Magic Mango Bread

Reviewed: Sep. 2, 2005
Great recipe! I had some frozen mango that I needed to do something with and this worked perfectly. I ran out of raisins at the last minute, so I ended up using half raisins, half chopped dried apricots, and I didn't have cinnamon, so I used a dollop of apple cinnamon jelly and it still turned out great. Can't wait to try this with REAL cinnamon. I'm sure it'll be even better!

Chilaquiles II

Reviewed: Sep. 5, 2005
Mmmmm... just like I had in Mexico! I had no idea it was this easy. Instead of making my own chips, I used some leftover store bought ones and of course, left the salt out of the recipe. I used the idea of another user and added a dollop of sour cream, but I'm not sure if I liked it that way or not... it sort of overpowered the mild taste of the eggs. Great recipe though!

Easy Corn and Crab Chowder

Reviewed: Sep. 26, 2005
This recipe was great. I followed everything EXACTLY except that I doubled everything except the flour and still had to thin it a little with more milk. I love that it's a creamy soup I can make with my regular 1% milk instead of half and half or heavy cream. My whole family loved it. I served it with Tabasco sauce on the side because I really like a little kick and it was great both with and without it.

Chocolate Mint Cookies I

Reviewed: Oct. 30, 2005
This was a great recipe! I thought it would be tedious and messy, but it really wasn't. I didn't have any problems with the balls sticking to my hands and I rolled them in granulated sugar like another member had suggested. I had to cook them a little longer (12 minutes), they were too gooey in the middle cooked at 10, then I put the mints on top and put them back in for 1 minute more. I also ended up with five dozen cookies instead of three, but it was fine because I bought extra mints!

Delicious Peanut Butter Cookies

Reviewed: Jul. 5, 2006
These turned out great. I used just over half a teaspoon of salt and it was plenty. My husband likes not so sweet cookies, but I eat sweets rarely enough that I think the sweeter the better. My compromise was that half of these got a quick roll in granulated sugar (make sure you shake off the excess) before I flattened them out with a fork. Definitely a great peanut butter cookie recipe though, no matter where it came from!
