Best Pork Chop Marinade

Reviewed: Nov. 1, 2013
Very easy to put together! I marinated overnight for about 10 hours. Pork chops were flavorful, moist, and tender. Thanks for the recipe!

Ham and Cheese Breakfast Tortillas

Reviewed: Oct. 27, 2013
Quick & Yummy breakfast! I scaled down the portion for just my husband and I and also added some baked tater tots to the wrap. The tater tots gave it a nice crunch!

Johnsonville® Chipotle Monterey Jack Cheese Chicken Sausage Quesadillas

Reviewed: Oct. 27, 2013
I used the ingredients in the recipe, but, just prepared a little differently. I sautéed the onions, peppers, & sausage in a pan before adding to the quesadilla. Instead of broiling I just heated in a pan on the stovetop until the outside was lightly golden & crispy and the cheese was melted. I thought the chicken sausage was good, but, I wasn't crazy about the flavor of it in the quesadilla. I think I would prefer the sausage in one of the pasta dish recipes that are under the Johnsonville recipe section on AR.

Johnsonville Italian Sausage Sliders

Reviewed: Oct. 21, 2013
Based on the suggestions from other reviewers I did a 50/50 ratio of Johnsonville sausage and ground beef. The first burger my husband and I tried with typical burger toppings tomato, lettuce, onion, & pickles. They were good , but, I thought they had a very strong sausage flavor to me that didn't seem to work with those toppings. The second burger we tried with mozzarella and some marinara. That burger was fabulous! I would definitely recommend, but, experiment with your toppings to see what you like.

Southern Sauce

Reviewed: Oct. 21, 2013
I was looking for a quick sauce to serve with our sliders tonight and thought I would give this a try. I tried it as the recipe was written and it was a little too sweet for our taste. I added some more light mayo and mustard to help balance out the flavor. It was just ok for us.

Apple Chips

Reviewed: Oct. 21, 2013
I was excited about trying this recipe because I love apple chips, but, this did not work for me. I cut them by hand, so, some were thicker and some were very thin (operator error - lol). The thinner ones did dry out and the ends curled up as the recipe stated, but, they stuck to the pan and would not come up even with a spatula. I was able to tear a few of the pieces off, but, the majority had to be soaked off and discarded. I was able to try the thicker slices that did not crisp up and the flavor was very good. Would not recommend this recipe unless you can find a way to keep them from sticking. I am not sure if greasing the pan would help or not.

Beautiful Baked Ziti

Reviewed: Oct. 19, 2013
My husband was very pleased with this dish and loved the use of the Johnsonville sausage instead of ground beef. It was a nice twist putting garlic bread on top of the ziti. I would make this again, but, I would add some ricotta to the sauce mix next time for my personal preference.

Quick Greek Pasta Salad with Steak

Reviewed: Oct. 3, 2013
Loved, loved, loved this! I omitted the black olives because my husband does not like them and the sunflower kernels because I didn't have any in my pantry. I grilled steak on the side and used the pasta as a side dish. The flavors of the sundried tomato, spinach, and feta worked perfectly together. This was a big winner in my house and I will definitely be adding this to my recipe book.

Bison Fajitas with Guacamole Salad

Reviewed: Sep. 24, 2013
Fabulous! I rubbed the steak in a little olive oil and rubbed fajita seasoning over steak. I grilled the entire steak and cut into slices so the meat did not overcook. The steak was tender and flavorful. I loved the guacamole salad. I will definitely be making it again to go with a variety of dishes. Thanks bison council for a great recipe!

Tomato Basil Pasta

Reviewed: Sep. 22, 2013
I loved the flavors in the pasta and the brightness the fresh basil brought to the dish. I did make a vinaigrette instead of just using olive oil and garlic because we like the tang you get from the vinegar. To the olive oil and garlic I added 1/4 cup red wine vinegar, 1/2 tsp of Dijon mustard, 1 tsp of salt and some fresh cracked pepper. It was good warm, but, I think I will like it even better cold.

Grilled Tarragon Mustard Chicken

Reviewed: Sep. 22, 2013
I tried the sauce before basting and liked the tanginess of sauce, but, I did not think the chicken had a lot of flavor after it was grilled. I think the chicken would benefit from marinating it in the sauce for several hours. There are a lot of great sauces & marinades on AR, so, I don't think I would make this one again.

Panzanella Salad with Bison Flank Steak

Reviewed: Sep. 18, 2013
Loved this recipe! Panzanella salad is such a great way to showcase summertime vegetables and the fresh basil took it over the top! We had never tried buffalo before and we were pleasantly surprised how much we liked it! Flank steak can be tough and chewy and I was hesitant to make this without a marinade to tenderize it, but, I am glad I didn't. It was tender and had wonderful flavor. I used lemon pepper instead of regular pepper, but, prepared everything else according to the recipe. If you haven't tried buffalo - give it a try!

Grilled Turkey Cuban Sandwiches

Reviewed: Sep. 18, 2013
This was a winner in my house! We liked the smoky hint you get from the cumin. All the components came together to be a very tasty sandwich. I loved using the grill as a Panini press. I used Torta rolls and the bread was perfectly crispy on the outside and soft on the inside. I will definitely be using this method again for other sandwiches.

Hawaiian Burgers

Reviewed: Sep. 10, 2013
I really liked the idea of this burger. The grilled pineapple, fresh red onions and chili sauce worked very well together. I was not a fan though of the turkey burgers. We are big fans of turkey burgers and I make them frequently from fresh turkey. My family did not like the texture of the preformed burgers and they were very salty. I will try this again, but, next time use Butterball fresh ground turkey.

Corn with Jalapenos

Reviewed: Sep. 9, 2013
There is nothing like fresh corn in the summertime! So, so yummy! This recipe was a nice change from regular corn on the cob, but, not as heavy as a creamed corn. I didn't use quite as much butter as the recipe called for and left out the pimento because my husband doesn't care for it. Great side dish for my Sunday night supper.

Cranberry Thanksgiving Turkey Sandwich

Reviewed: Sep. 3, 2013
This sandwich was easy to put together for a quick workday lunch. There were mixed reviews in my house. My husband was a big fan and thought the sweet & tart cranberry sauce with the savory turkey and hearty 15 grain wheat bread were perfect together. He gave the sandwich 5 stars. I personally did not care for the cranberry sauce on the sandwich and would have given the sandwich 3 stars. I think if I made an aioli mixing the mayo and the cranberry sauce together I would like it better because it wouldn't be such a strong cranberry flavor. If you are a big cranberry sauce fan though - give it a try!

Blueberry Cream Muffins

Reviewed: Sep. 3, 2013
We absolutely loved these muffins! I did add just a little cinnamon to the batter. I made some adding the streusel topping recipe from To Die For Blueberry Muffins off this site as suggested by another reviewer and some without. I preferred them as the recipe stated, but, my husband liked the streusel topped. I think they would also be great with a some lemon zest added to the batter.

Peanut Butter and Maple Oatmeal

Reviewed: Aug. 21, 2013
I love oatmeal and I am always looking for a different way to prepare it. I really liked the peanut butter flavor in the oatmeal, but, I was not a big fan of the maple syrup. I would try it again, but, probably add a little milk to make it creamier and experiment with different sweeteners like honey or agave.

Au Gratin Potatoes on the Grill

Reviewed: Aug. 21, 2013
I thought these potatoes were good, but, honestly nothing special. I like the idea of cooking them on the grill beside some grilled chicken because it prevented me from heating up the oven. My husband did the grilling, but, if I was preparing it as a novice griller it would have helped if the recipe had instructed me whether to cook direct or indirect heat and what temperature range to grill. My husband grilled on indirect heat on medium high and it was done in about 30 minutes. He did have to move it to direct heat after 20 minutes because the potatoes were still very firm. I think these would be good if they had a little more seasoning and maybe some olive oil added.

Burgers with Grilled Onions

Reviewed: Aug. 18, 2013
Good classic hamburger, but, kicked up a notch with the grilled onions. Easy to just add the onions right along side the burgers on the grill. True flavor of the beef comes through by just adding a little salt & pepper to the meat.
