Absolute Mexican Cornbread

Reviewed: Jan. 9, 2011
Excellent recipe--made exactly as written the first time. Has a nice little kick and the husband likes sweet cornbread anyway-its a happy medium. However, we like it a little more spicey so I chopped 2 jalapenos-seeds removed and added for the last two times made--oh and leave the mixture sitting in the mixing bowl for about 10 to 15 minutes (if you have the time) before you pour into dish to cook--it won't be as greasy!

Krista's Queso

Reviewed: May 27, 2008
Always a hit at parties. I love the mushrooms in this. I have changed this up quite often by adding mexican Velveeta cheese to give it a little more kick and ground beef instead of sausage.

Salisbury Steak

Reviewed: Mar. 2, 2008
Based on the recipe exactly as stated it has way too much ketchup for my taste. I decreased the last several times I have made this to only a couple of tablespoons ketchup and it was definately a five star recipe!

Gourmet Mushroom Risotto

Reviewed: Jan. 21, 2008
Beautiful Risotto for mushroom lovers! I didn't have the Arborio rice on hand the first time that I made this so had to use long grain. It turned out great with both kinds of rice!

Garlic Prime Rib

Reviewed: Jan. 21, 2008
Oh my GOSH! EXCELLENT! I was almost scared to try this due to the price of the prime rib at my butcher's. However, it came out perfect! If you don't like garlic--don't try it! I put garlic in almost everything! My mom loves prime rib and didn't like this due to the garlic. I made exactly as the recipe called and stuck my meat thermometer in to time--it was perfect as listed. Medium 130 degrees on timer after it sets for a momemt it will finish cooking to 140.

Oven Roasted Potatoes

Reviewed: Jan. 21, 2008
Wonderful--and I don't even like oven roasted potatoes! You can change seasonings to your taste--but I loved them all!

Baked French Toast

Reviewed: Jan. 21, 2008
Had great taste--but didn't crisp enough the first time I made this it was soggy. I followed other reviews and decreased the eggs and cream. It came out perfect.

Christmas Breakfast Sausage Casserole

Reviewed: Jan. 21, 2008
Definately use the white bread instead of wheat--we usually don't keep white on hand so I have used both in this recipe. I don't know why but the wheat seems to dry the casserole out more. Try this casserole--you won't be disappointed.

Baked Ham

Reviewed: Nov. 20, 2007
If you like ham to taste like ham--this is the recipe for you! Excellent flavor. It was so moist and literally did fall off the bone. I made it exactly like the recipe stated and it was PERFECT!

Bikini Martini

Reviewed: Oct. 8, 2007
Don't leave out the grenadine--it adds the touch of sweetness that this drink needs! I did use citrus vodka--which could be why it tasted so much better with the grenadine!

Asian Beef Skewers

Reviewed: Oct. 8, 2007
Maybe I did something wrong with what I ended up having to substitute. None of our grocery stores or my butcher had flank steak available so I used what the guy told me would be about the same. I also used this marinade on some sirloin that I had left in the fridge from the family pack last night. Maybe I marinated to long because they didn't brown well and came out mushy. (36 hours--obviously too long) I couldn't find Hoisin sauce either so I have not a clue as to what that would have added to the flavor. I have every asian sauce but that one! This is also too much ginger for me. I have decided that I don't like fresh ginger at all now--my skewers tasted too much like a lemon! I will try again when I find the sauce and I will have the butcher order flank steak for me.

Grilled Garlic Potatoes

Reviewed: Oct. 8, 2007
These were great at our tailgate party this weekend. I made exactly as the recipe indicated except used Natures Seasoning instead of salt and pepper (I seasoned after I sliced the potatos to 1/8" and washed--so the seasoning stuck to each potato). Also I used a foil pan on the grill so didn't flip or stir. They came out perfect! The next day I warmed up the left overs by adding more cheese to the top and bacon bits. It reminds me of a "kicked up" version of the twice baked potato! GREAT and SOOOO easy. I love the convenience of using the grill for every part of your meal on hot summer days.

Buffalo Shrimp

Reviewed: Oct. 1, 2007
According to my husband this is the best shrimp that I have ever made. (I make alot of seafood dishes.) It was very easy and tasted just like the Buffalo Shrimp I had on the coast in Savannah years ago! Served with Blue Cheese and used Franks Hot Sauce.

Chili I

Reviewed: Oct. 1, 2007
This could be a personal preference on the sugar--but MUCH toooooo sweet. Made exactly as stated other than omitted all but one jalapeno pepper and added a can of green chilis for myself(kids and husbands heartburn) and forgot to buy the dark beer so I used regular Coors Light. I love my chili hot--so perhaps not getting to add all the peppers made a difference in the sweetness factor??? I keep eating it--but NONE of family was impressed. Sad to say buy they would rather I buy Chilo-O mix than try any other homemade recipes. (Not that I will listen!) The best one I have found so far has been the copy cat Wendy's chili recipe and I still have to tweak---any other suggestions?

Sweet Grilled Corn

Reviewed: Oct. 1, 2007
I am ALWAYS looking for tailgating and grilling recipes--this was amazing! I am sad to say that I have only tried it with olive oil and not the nut oil it called for--unavailable unless I drive for an hour to a bigger city! I will get that and let you know then if it makes a difference! We are doing this corn again this weekend for a nascar tailgate. GREAT GREAT GREAT recipe for corn! I have done both fresh and frozen--both work wonderfully!
