Creamy Chicken Vegetable Chowder

Reviewed: Jul. 5, 2011
I LOVE LOVE LOVE THIS soup. Just so everyone knows I submitted this recipe some years ago. I submitted the recipe stating thicken to your own taste and/or preference using roux and described how to make roux. I make it as a chowder and pretty thick, however some people don't like it as thick as I do. Thus the choice in the recipe. It has irritated me forever that many of the comments say the soup is not thick enough as written. This is because it is not written verbatim as I wrote it, you can make it as thick or thin as you want to. The flavors are what the recipe is about, as with all soups. You can make any soup into a chowder by thickening it with roux. When I make a roux I keep on thickening whatever I have made until it as thick as I like it. I love this soup/chowder and make it every winter!

Cabbage Waldorf Salad

Reviewed: Apr. 25, 2011
I absolutely love this salad. I used seedless green grapes rather than red. It was wonderful and refreshing. One of my favorite new things I have made in a very long time. EXCELLENT!!

Black Bean, Corn, and Tomato Salad with Feta Cheese

Reviewed: Aug. 12, 2010
I hate doing this, especially since so many others enjoyed this recipe. I could not eat it and my family wouldn't even try it. I only used 3/4 c. oil and it was just way too oily. For some reason the flavors just did not mesh to me. I like everything individually so I figured I'd love this. It just was not even a little bit good to me. SORRY!!

Grilled Spice Rubbed Chicken Breasts with Alabama BBQ Sauce

Reviewed: Jul. 26, 2010
This was very good. I would recommend using slghtly less vinegar than what the recipe calls for. The sauce was a little too tangy for me, but otherwise very good. Chicken was super tender and moist!

Spinach and Feta Pita Bake

Reviewed: Mar. 25, 2010
I was grocery shopping and forgot to bring my ingredients for this, so I winged it. I used basil pesto, spinach, sundried tomatos, feta and black olives to make my pizzas on Pita of course. OH MY GOSH this is great. Much better than I expected. Even my husband who does not like feta loves these. Awesome recipe, great flexibility. LOVE IT!!

Fry Bread Tacos II

Reviewed: Oct. 21, 2009
I am truly sorry, but the fry bread was not very good at all in my opinion. Nothing like fry bread I have had at fairs and so on. It was dry and not fluffy or crispy. Seemed like a fried biscuit. Just totally not what I was looking for.

Beer-Batter Onion Rings

Reviewed: Jul. 30, 2009
GREAT!! Works wonderfully with mushrooms as well. Probably would work with anything you wanted to batter. I made myself a little short cut and it was still the best batter I have used. I skipped the step of rolling the onions in the plain flour, went straight to the batter and it was THE BEST!!

Sweet Pea and Dill Salad

Reviewed: Jun. 15, 2009
I liked it OK, but it was a little much on the dill. I added some small chunks of sharp cheddar cheese and liked it better that way.

Cocktail Meatballs IV

Reviewed: Apr. 15, 2009
Everyone liked these meatballs and it was a very easy appetizer. I used store bought meatballs which were only OK, but the sauce was very good.

High Temperature Eye-of-Round Roast

Reviewed: Apr. 6, 2009
I had previously rated this a 5 star, because it is very good. However I have found it to be inconsistent. I have made this 4 or 5 times now and never as good as the first time. I think if your roast is 3 pounds but long and skinny you need to cut down the time in the oven. Anyway, be careful because it can easily become dry and over cooked. Still very good when it turns out right.

Juicy Roasted Chicken

Reviewed: Mar. 10, 2009
This is an excellent roast chicken recipe. If you happen to be out of celery, you can stuff with onion, orange, etc. Anything that has a lot of moisture will work. Very easy and very good.

Pork Marsala

Reviewed: Mar. 10, 2009
This was pretty good. I would suggest using a more tender cut of pork, or maybe mine just wasn't very tender. I prefer a cream marsala sauce. But this was good and I will make again, probably use chicken however.

King Ranch Chicken Casserole III

Reviewed: Mar. 10, 2009
Did not have a lot of flavor. Also I used less than half the broth that was called for and that was a little too much. If anyone else has the same experience I'll tell you what I did with the leftovers. I took a smaller casserole dish and layered the original recipe, then sour cream, chopped canned chile peppers, black olives and I added cumin and ground red pepper. Added cheese just before taking it out of the oven. NOW it was very good.

Bou's Chicken

Reviewed: Mar. 2, 2009
I was very disappointed in this recipe. The sauce was very watery, and the breast portion of the chicken very dry. We did eat it, but will not make it again for sure. There are much better things you can do with a chicken. Sorry!!

Broccoli in Roast Chicken Drippings

Reviewed: Feb. 25, 2009
I really expected this to be awesome. Broccoli is always good, but this wasn't really any better than my normal recipe. It was very easy however and, just not quite as good as I had hoped.

David's Mesquite Smoked Texas Brisket

Reviewed: Apr. 26, 2006
I have made this many times and it is always wonderful. I use a gas grill with wood chips and have caught the whole thing on fire a few times. It actually turns out just as good or better. I also use salt free greek seasoning and season all so I can control the amount of salt a little better. Again this is awesome and I make it as often as I can.
