Mocha Liqueur Shake

Reviewed: Feb. 23, 2013
I made this recipe two different ways. I did half a batch using the rum and half a batch leaving the rum out and using milk instead. We much preferred the batch using milk. The rum seemed to overpower this to us. The batch made with milk, ice cream, & kahlua was amazing! I would definitely make this again leaving out the rum for our personal preference.

Pineapple Jupiter

Reviewed: Feb. 23, 2013
Really easy to put together and had a nice fruity flavor. I couldn't find frozen pineapple conentrate anywhere, so, I had to use pineapple juice. I definitely think it would be better if you could find the frozen concentrate. Mine had a stronger banana flavor than pineapple and I am sure it was because the pineapple juice I had to use was more diluted than the concentrate would have been. I think if you can't find the concentrate you would have better luck using fresh pineapple instead of pineapple juice.

Chocolate Almond Popcorn

Reviewed: Feb. 23, 2013
This was so simple to put together and was perfectly coated and crunchy. I didn't think it had a strong chocolate flavor. I thought it was very good, but, my husband thought it was bitter - probably from the use of the cocoa powder.

Stay Skinny Stuffed Mushrooms

Reviewed: Feb. 20, 2013
This recipe was easy to put together with ingredients I almost always have in my kitchen. They had a lot of flavor without the heaviness of a sausage stuffed mushroom. I did add several drops of the optional hot sauce for a little extra kick.

Salsa Chicken Meatloaf

Reviewed: Feb. 17, 2013
I really didn't know what to expect from a meatloaf using ground chicken and pork, but, wow the taste really packs a punch! It had so much flavor and tasted really fresh using fresh jalapeno and cilantro. My ground chicken and pork came in 1 lb. containers. I noticed that other reviewers used an entire lb. of pork, so, I did to so I didn't have and extra 1/2 lb that I probably wouldn't use. I added a full 2 tbs. of taco seasoning and 16 oz. salsa to accomodate for the extra pork. I left everything else the same. So, so yummy! It was moist and cooked perfectly in the time listed on the recipe. I will definitely be making again. Thanks, HockeyMom!

Best Black Beans

Reviewed: Feb. 17, 2013
So easy to make and perfect for a week night dinner. They were very flavorful considering they cooked for so little time. I did use seasoned black beans in order to get a little extra flavor.

Kickin' Pimento Cheese Spread

Reviewed: Feb. 11, 2013
My family loves pimento cheese, so, I am always looking for a new recipe to try. I have never tried a recipe using sour cream, but, this was very good. It tasted more like a cheese spread instead of traditional pimento cheese because you didn't get a strong mayonnaise taste. I did add a little extra cheddar cheese. It was very flavorful and I will make it again.

Grands!® Monkey Bread

Reviewed: Feb. 9, 2013
This recipe was very easy to put together and the flavor was soooooo good! I used both the raisins and the nuts and they added a nice texture to the bread. I didn't get a gooey caramel sauce. Mine ended up with more of a crunchy carmelized coating. Also, you still get the texture from the brown sugar since it didn't dissolve. It didn't bother my family because we liked the crunch. I cooked the bread for 30 minutes until is was a dark golden brown. The outside was perfect, but, the bread on the inner ring was not fully cooked. Not sure how to resolve that issue. If I cooked it any longer the outside pieces would have burned.

Baked Chicken with Salsa and Sour Cream

Reviewed: Feb. 8, 2013
This was a very quick and easy recipe to put together which was a plus on a busy week night. My family did not care for the texture of the sauce though because cooking the sour cream in the sauce caused the sour cream to "break". We much prefer the "salsa chicken" on this site. I prepare it the same way as this recipe to completely coat the chicken in the taco seasoning. We just dollop some sour cream on top of the salsa chicken when it has cooked. You get the same flavor profile as this chicken without having the dairy separate in the sauce.

Pimento Cheese Spread II

Reviewed: Feb. 4, 2013
This is a very basic pimento cheese. I did like the crunch you get from the pecans, however, I did think it was bland for my taste. I added some cayenne pepper to taste and it greatly improved the flavor. It was more for flavor than the spicy heat. Definitely grate your own cheese. Pre-grated cheese may be a nice shortcut, but, it won't blend or taste as good if you use it.

Savory Baked Bagel Chips

Reviewed: Feb. 2, 2013
This recipe did not work at all for me prepared as the recipe stated. I am not sure how the bagel chips were supposed to be cut, so, I cut some the full size of the bagel and some across the bagel in half chips. The half chips were much easier to cut. The cooking time was definitely off at this temperature. I cooked the 10 minutes on one side and they were already getting golden, but, still soft in the middle. I flipped to the other side and cooked 5 minutes instead of the full 10 minutes. The ones that I salvaged did have very good flavor and a nice crunch. I would probably try these again, but, cook 5 minutes on one side and 5-7 minutes on the other side.

Traditional Hummus

Reviewed: Feb. 2, 2013
I reduced the lemon juice slightly, but, other than that made exactly as the recipe stated. It was a perfect texture and had good flavor. I served with homeade bagel chips.

Quick and Easy Hummus

Reviewed: Feb. 2, 2013
I was not pleased with this recipe as is. I made it exactly as the recipe stated and found it to be very thick. It was almost like a paste. I think it needed some olive oil added to smooth it out and make it creamier.

Strawberry Daiquiri

Reviewed: Feb. 2, 2013
This was really yummy and so easy to make! I didn't use any ice because using the frozen strawberries made it the perfect consistency. I used light sweetened frozen strawberries and diet lemon lime soda. My husband added a scoop of low fat vanilla ice cream to his and blended and it was also very good!

Grandwich Breakfast Sandwiches

Reviewed: Jan. 30, 2013
This was a very simple & easy recipe to get together. It is just a basic breakfast sandwich, but, very convenient using canned biscuit dough. Next time I make it I would just make a fried egg to put on the biscuit. The scrambled eggs kept falling out of the biscuit.

Grands!® Mini Pizzas

Reviewed: Jan. 30, 2013
I have to say I was a little wary of using canned biscuit dough for pizza crust, however, I was pleasantly surpised at how good this was. I was able to put it together in minutes and it was very tasty. The only complaint I would have is that the middle section of the pizza was a little soggy & soft. I will make these again, but, will take the advice of some of the other reviewers and pre-bake the crust for a couple of minutes before adding the toppings.

The Best Steak Marinade

Reviewed: Jan. 26, 2013
We don't typically marinate steaks, but, wanted to try something a little different. This was really flavorful! I reduced the soy sauce slightly so it wouldn't be too salty. I marinated about 2 hours, but, next time would probably marinate a few more hours. Definitely will be using this again!

Fiery Fish Tacos with Crunchy Corn Salsa

Reviewed: Jan. 7, 2013
We thought this was very flavorful and fresh tasting! Much healthier than a fried fish taco. The jicama gave the relish a nice crunch with just a touch of sweetness. The only thing I would adjust is the seasoning on the fish. We love spice, but 2 tbsp of cayenne is a lot! I just sprinkled the seasoning on the fish until lightly coated and it was plenty spicy.

Dark Chocolate Cherry Fudge

Reviewed: Dec. 31, 2012
This was much easier to put together than other fudge recipes I have made in the past. I boiled for 4 minutes and consistency came out perfect. It was smooth, creamy, and not grainy at all. We thought the chocolate part of the fudge was very good, but, we were not a big fan of the dried fruit. My family would prefer it just plain chocolate or with some walnuts added. I will definitely make again - minus the dried cherries.

The Best Turkey Chili

Reviewed: Dec. 29, 2012
This was the first time I have made chili using ground turkey and it was very yummy! It was simple to put together and made the entire house smell wonderful as it simmered on the stovetop. The only thing I did differently was to use a full tsp. of red pepper flakes and half a diced fresh jalapeno because we really like it spicy! I would definitely make again. Thanks for the recipe! 1/1/13 Just changed my rating from a 4 to a 5. After sitting a day this chili was so, so much better! The flavors really had a chance to meld together and just made it even more flavorful!
