Sweet Corn Bread

Reviewed: Aug. 11, 2012
I prepared this recipe exactly as stated, but, made corn muffins instead. They took about 13 minutes in my oven to bake. The muffins were moist and had a nice balance of sweetness. For our taste though the flour to corn meal ratio was a little off. Although the muffins were very moist - they had more of a biscuit texture inside. My family missed the texture you get from the extra cornmeal. I would probably try again, but, do less flour and more cornmeal. I might even try it with buttermilk instead of milk. Thanks for the recipe, Karen!

One - Two - Three - Mexican Macaroni Salad

Reviewed: Aug. 9, 2012
I tried the recipe as written and although it was good - I thought it needed a little something more. I added two chopped green onions, a can of drained and rinsed corn, 1/2 tsp of cumin, & 1/2 tsp of chili powder. I let chill about 3 hours and it was perfect. Mine was not saucy at all, but, clung to the noodles. It did receive mixed reviews in my house -I thought it was great, but, my husband would have given it a 3. He thought he may like it with a less firm pasta like a bowtie.

Lemon Bars II

Reviewed: Aug. 9, 2012
I thought I would try this instead of my regular lemon bar recipe. I made exactly as the recipe instructed and I have to agree with some of the other reviewers in that we didn't care for the shortbread topping. I think it takes away from the lemon filling. The middle stayed more like a typical lemon bar, but, the pieces along the edge tasted more like cake and the lemon filling completely disappeared. I will not be making this again.

Chicken Cordon Bleu Burgers

Reviewed: Aug. 8, 2012
I followed the advice of Valerie's review and used italian panko crumbs on the chicken. I pounded the chicken to half the thickness and dredged in flour, egg, & panko crumbs. I then browned in a skillet until golden brown and finished in the oven for 10 minutes, topped with ham & cheese and cooked an additional 5 minutes. The flavor was really good and the sauce was a nice compliment. The recipe really did remind me of chicken cordon bleu.

Sweet Basil and Oregano Bruschetta Chicken

Reviewed: Aug. 6, 2012
We loved this! It was very simple to put together and so flavorful! It really did have the same flavors as bruschetta. The balsamic vinegar really took this dish over the top. Definitely keep an eye on your chicken though. The tomatoes were perfect at 30 minutes, but, if you use chicken tenders or cut into 1" pieces - you probably won't need 30 minutes on the chicken. I left mine in the same amount of time and the chicken was dry. Next time I will cook the tomatoes 10 minutes and then put the chicken in for the remaining 20 minutes. Great flavors!

Hot Mexican Bean Dip

Reviewed: Aug. 5, 2012
This was really easy to put together and so good! It had a lot of flavor and you could make it as mild or spicy as you want depending on the quantity of jalapeno you add to the dish. It would be fantastic for a crowd. Thanks for the recipe!

Chocolate Chip Cookie Bars

Reviewed: Aug. 4, 2012
My husband was having a cookie craving, but, I didn't have time to babysit the oven for individual cookies. I made exactly as written, except I left the nuts out since my husband doesn't like them. The flavor was good, but, we both thought they were really thick and could've used some extra chocolate chips - I even added some extra to the mix since I left out the nuts. They fixed the craving, but, I probably wouldn't make them again.

One Two Three Sausage Balls

Reviewed: Aug. 4, 2012
I have a recipe that I make like this, but, using less bisquick. I thought I would try this one and see the difference in taste. I started out with 1-1/2 cups of bisquick and gradually increased. I ended up using only just a little over two cups of the mix and they turned out perfect. I also baked at 350 for the same time because I know my oven bakes a little hot. I left the sausage and cheese measurements the same. Very yummy!

Marinated Pork Chops

Reviewed: Jun. 16, 2012
I thought I would try this as a change from my normal grilled pork chop marinade. The pork chops were tender and pretty good - but, didn't have as strong as taste as I thought the marinade would give it. We prefer the Bada Bing pork chops on AR. I would probably make these again though and just change a little to suite to our taste.

Honey Mustard Grilled Chicken

Reviewed: Jun. 16, 2012
I wasn't as crazy about this as it seems like most people were. It seemed a little bland. My family also wasn't as fond of the dijon taste - it seemed to overpower all of the other flavors. 5/21/14 Tried this again substituting Guldens spicy mustard and we liked it much better than the version with the dijon.

Carla's Sausage Cheese Balls

Reviewed: Jun. 16, 2012
I made these for my husband's office for breakfast. Very simple ingredients - just make sure it is well incorporated before rolling into balls. It will look very dry and crumbly, but, keep working with it and it will come together into a smooth ball. Make sure you don't see any of the dry Bisquick. I only used about 1-1/2 lbs of sausage and about 1-1/2 cups of Bisquick. My oven cooks hot - so, I also baked at 350 for 20 minutes instead of 400 and they were perfect. I also baked them on a parchment covered baking sheet and they came right off the paper. Thanks, Mitchell!

Sweet and Tangy Broccoli Salad

Reviewed: May 29, 2012
I have made variations of this broccoli salad for years. I used craisins instead of raisins and added about 3/4 cup of grated cheddar cheese. I made the sauce as is and thought it was a little sweet for our taste. I added a little more mayo and vinegar and it was perfect. If you like it really sweet - I would make as is. If you prefer a tangier sauce I would start with 1/4 cup of sugar and adjust according to your taste. Thanks for the recipe, Dina!

Broccoli-Cheese Corn Bread

Reviewed: May 29, 2012
This recipe had mixed reviews in my house. I made it exactly as the recipe stated, except, preparing as a muffin instead of in a pan. I thought the flavor was good, but, it was really dense and heavy. My husband didn't care for it at all. In his words "it has too much going on". Most reviewers seemed to really like it - so, I think I must be in the minority. Just a little too heavy for us.

Baked Mexican Rice (Adapted from Caitlin's Mexican Rice)

Reviewed: May 27, 2012
I made this recipe as is the first time and thought it was good, but, was bland for our taste. I think if you like things without a lot of spice or seasoning you would like this as is. Based on this recipe I would give it a 3. With it as a starting point - I made it a second time cooking the rice in chicken broth and adding cumin and chili powder while cooking. After it was cooked instead of layering I mixed the sour cream, green chilies, monterey jack, olives, 1 can mexicorn, and 3 green onions. Topped with the cheddar and baked according to directions. I think it is a great starting point. Try it as is and then adjust to your taste. Thanks, Kristina!

Red, White, and Blueberry Fruit Salad

Reviewed: May 26, 2012
Simple to make, but, delicious! The lemon juice really brightened and enhanced the flavor of the fruit. I did use splenda instead of sugar to cut back on some of the calories.

Lisa's Favorite Carne Asada Marinade

Reviewed: May 26, 2012
We loved this! I made exactly as the recipe stated except I used traditional flap steak instead. I also didn't marinade the entire 24 hours since flap steak is so thin. It was so flavorful! I will definitely be making agin. Thanks, Lisa!

Refried Beans Without the Refry

Reviewed: May 26, 2012
These were so good! Really easy to put together and cooked perfectly in 8 hours. I made exactly as the recipe stated, but, I used 5 cups low sodium chicken broth and 4 cups water. Much fresher tasting than what you get out of a can.

Amy's Cilantro Cream Sauce

Reviewed: May 26, 2012
I made this exactly as is except I left out the celery salt. It was creamy and tangy and we really liked it. I served with carne asada, but, I think it would also be really good with chicken or fish tacos.

Spicy BBQ Chicken

Reviewed: May 21, 2012
We really enjoyed this. I prefer my barbeque sauce tangy and this fit the bill. It was tangy and had a little bit of heat. We did cook the chicken on indirect heat instead of high heat. I think if it was cooked on high heat it would have burned before the chicken was done. Crank it up to high to heat the grill and then turn down (about 375 on our grill thermometer).
