Bill's Seasoned Ketchup

Reviewed: Mar. 11, 2014
Simple to make and a nice kicked up ketchup! I made half a batch and made some with chili powder and some without. We preferred the version without the chili powder. I also think this would be really good on top of a meatloaf! Thanks for the recipe!

Sweet and Spicy Stir Fry with Chicken and Broccoli

Reviewed: Mar. 10, 2014
This recipe had a mixed review in my house. My husband was a big fan and liked the spicy profile. I thought it was a little too spicy for my taste and I prefer a thicker sauce. If you like it really spicy leave the red pepper flakes in - if not - leave them out. I added red bell pepper, water chestnuts, & bamboo shoots for added veggies, but, left everything else as is. I will try this recipe again, but, possibly add a little cornstarch slurry for a thicker sauce to coat the chicken and vegetables. I also think fresh ginger would be better because the ground ginger gets lost with all the other strong flavors. My husband rated 5 stars and I would give 3-1/2 as is.

Pork Carnitas with Cilantro Tomatillo Sauce

Reviewed: Mar. 9, 2014
Both my husband and I thought this was a very good recipe, but, different than most pork carnitas we have had in the past. The flavor profile reminded me more of what you get with shredded pork for tacos. I don't know if I added too much water, but, the liquid did not cook down after the time listed in the recipe. The pork was tender, so, I removed the pork to a bowl and covered with foil. I then turned the sauce on high and reduced for about 20 minutes. I then returned the pork back to the pot and simmered for about 10 minutes to heat through. The texture and flavors were perfect. The tomatillo sauce was not a big hit in my house. We were not crazy about the texture of the raw tomatillo. I made some with the salsa as stated in the recipe and then made a second salsa with tomato, onion, cilantro, and some fresh lime juice. I then made a sauce with sour cream and salsa verde. We much preferred the salsa without the raw tomatillo. Five stars for the pork, but, two for the salsa as listed in the recipe.

Buttery Garlic Green Beans

Reviewed: Feb. 20, 2014
Simple recipe for your every day green beans that is kicked up a notch. The lemon pepper on the green beans gave it a bright flavor profile that my family really liked. I ended up using 1-1/2 tsps to get the taste I wanted. I personally thought 3 tbs. of butter was too much. I will make again, but, probably cut that amount in half and add more if needed.

Quick Cheddar Garlic Biscuits

Reviewed: Feb. 20, 2014
This was a big hit with my family - soft, cheesy, & garlicy. I made with buttermilk instead of milk because I needed to use it up and added some dried parsley to the butter mixture. Very easy to put together and so tasty. I saved the leftover biscuits in a baggie and the next day reheated at 400 degrees for 5-6 minutes. Top was slightly crunchy with a soft buttery inside - tasted just as good the second time around. Thanks for the recipe!

7-Up® Biscuits

Reviewed: Feb. 20, 2014
I don't typically like a Bisquick biscuit, but, I thought I would give this a try. I was pleasantly surpised! The biscuits were light and fluffy and very good. The top and bottom of the biscuit was softer than a normal biscuit, but, the bottom was soft and buttery and had great flavor. I did pat out the dough with a little extra Bisquick and cut with a cutter instead of drop biscuits. ***MAKE SURE YOU READ THE SUBMITTERS REVIEW - She states there is a typo in the recipe. You are only supposed to use 1/2 cup of 7up. I double everything in a 9 x 13 pan 4 cups bisquick, 1 cups sour cream, 1 cup 7up, but,& 1/2 cup butter. Easy and yummy!

Chicken Souvlaki with Tzatziki Sauce

Reviewed: Feb. 9, 2014
We look Greek flavor profiles and this fit the bill! I made the marinade as is, but, let it marinade overnight for extra flavor. I served on Mediterranean pita bread with a Greek pasta salad. I will definitely be making again.

RITZ Push-Cart Hot Dog Bites

Yum, yum! These were very simple to make and really packed a flavor punch! The onions were fabulous! I felt like I was eating a chili dog, but, without the actual chili! Very tasty and fun to make!

RITZ Cuban Minis

Reviewed: Feb. 9, 2014
I have been a fan of Cuban sandwiches for many years and never thought about trying it as an appetizer. These were fabulous! I used leftover pulled pork from AR recipe slow cooker carnitas. I made some using Dijon as used in the recipe and some with thousand island dressing instead. They were both very good. So easy to make and wonderful flavor!

Buckeye Balls II

Reviewed: Jan. 6, 2014
Very easy to make and very tasty! Based on other reviews I started at 2 cups of powdered sugar and added gradually until I reached the consistency I liked. I ended up using a little over 3 cups. I will be making these for years to come. Thanks for the recipe!

Supreme Strawberry Topping

Reviewed: Nov. 30, 2013
Fabulous topping! Perfect amount of sweetness. Fresh strawberries are not good in my area this time of year, so, I used frozen. There was no need to blend since they are softer. I just mashed in the pan with a potato masher. Perfect over the cheesecake supreme recipe! 4/24/14 I made this again using fresh strawberries and it was SO much better. I adjusted to our taste - 2 qts strawberries, 2/3 cup sugar and 1/2 tsp vanilla - perfect!

Cheesecake Supreme

Reviewed: Nov. 29, 2013
Absolutely fabulous! I followed the suggestions of most all of the other reviewers and cooked in a preheated oven at 200 degrees for 3 hrs & 10 minutes and let cool in the oven for 2 hours with the door cracked. Perfectly creamy all the way to the ends-no cracks and I did not use a water bath. It was a huge, huge hit! Very important to remember to have all your ingredients room temperature - the eggs & the whipping cream.

Thanksgiving Leftovers Casserole

Reviewed: Nov. 22, 2013
I wasn't sure how I would like this casserole, but, boy was I surprised! Based on other reviews I added some poultry seasoning and garlic powder to the filling, but, other than that made exactly as the recipe stated. I used mayonnaise instead of miracle whip due to my personal preference. The casserole came together quickly and was hearty and flavorful. It tasted like a cross between a pot pie and a shepherd's pie. It is a nice change for your leftovers from your Thanksgiving meal. I would recommend serving gravy on the side.

Banana Crumb Muffins

Reviewed: Nov. 2, 2013
We loved these muffins! I was looking for a quick muffin to make for company I had this weekend. The muffin was moist and flavorful and the crumble was perfectly golden & crunchy. Everyone loved them. I didn't have time to do a trial run on the muffins, so, I made changes based on the advice of other reviewers. I used 1/3 cup of oil instead of butter and added 3/4 tsp cinnamon and 1/4 tsp nutmeg. Great suggestions.

Garlic Herb Feta Cheese Mashed Potatoes

Reviewed: Nov. 1, 2013
Fabulous!! The oregano, rosemary and feta all came together and had a wonderful flavor profile. I did add my garlic cloves to the boiling water with my potatoes so we would have a little milder flavor. They mash perfectly in with the potatoes. I served with roasted lemon rosemary chicken and fresh green beans.

Turkey Joes

Reviewed: Nov. 1, 2013
I didn't quite know what to expect from this recipe since it was made with ground turkey and used so much chili powder. I had never had a sloppy joe with chili powder before. I was pleasantly surprised and my husband kept telling me he would never know it was turkey. Very flavorful! The only thing I did differently was to add 1/2 of a chopped green pepper.

Corn and Jalapenos

Reviewed: Nov. 1, 2013
This recipe was just ok for us. I really liked all the components in the dish, but, the frozen corn became slightly chewy. I cooked according to the recipe, but, maybe I just need to cook long enough to heat the corn and take off. I have made a similar recipe on AR using fresh corn and it is wonderful, but, it is not easy to find fresh corn in the winter. I will try this again, but, just experiment on cooking times and maybe even try a different brand of frozen corn.

Spicy Beef and Bean Enchilada Pie

Reviewed: Nov. 1, 2013
This recipe took some time to get together, but, it was very good. The only problem I had was with the black bean mixture. Once I added the enchilada sauce to the black beans it was a very thin soupy mixture. I had to add another full can of black beans to thicken it and then I had a ton left over. I would just add enough enchilada sauce to the beans to be a good spreadable consistency. Next time I will also make my own enchilada sauce because I would like the flavor better than the canned sauce. One suggestion is to wrap the bottom of your spring form pan in foil. That way if you have any leakage it won't get all over your oven. Also - when you warm tortillas they shrink, so, you may need to do a couple of tortillas per layer in order to fill your pan. Thanks for the recipe!
