Bacon Ranch Pasta Salad

Reviewed: May 13, 2015
I made a half batch of this last night for dinner and was amazed at how good it was, probably the best pasta salad I've ever had/made. The few things I changed were: 1) seasoned the pasta with salt AND garlic salt while it boiled, 2) seasoned the bacon with garlic pepper while it cooked, 3) added 1/2 cup (would be a full cup for a normal batch obviously) of both carrots and peas, 4) didn't use tomatoes at all since my daughter won't even touch a tomato, and 5) didn't add milk, which I didn't even realize until right before writing this review. Since I seasoned the pasta and the bacon, I did NOT add any extra seasonings besides the ranch. It was fantastic! I loved that that the ranch flavor wasn't over-powering. Maybe next time I'll remember the milk but I won't be upset if I forget to add it again. Definitely a keeper recipe!

Easy Herb Rice

Reviewed: Sep. 7, 2014
This is so easy and tasty. This is the second I've made this. I followed the recipe but used long grain brown rice instead of white, chicken bullion instead of beef, and added 1 tbsp butter and a 1 tsp of salt, as per rice cooking package instructions, 1 tsp refrigerated minced garlic, and Parmesan cheese to taste after cooking. The cooking time was 45 minutes with the brown rice, again as per rice package instructions, and I used 2 and 3/4 cups hot water. The first time I made it I used minute brown rice and chicken broth instead of water and bullion. The cooking time was a lot quicker, obviously, but I needed to I add an extra 1/4 cup of broth to moisten it. I also added a tbsp or two of Kerrygold's herbed butter and Parmesan cheese after the rice was done cooking.

Honey Glazed Ham

Reviewed: Apr. 21, 2014
This was so good! We don't even like ham all that well but my whole family loved this! Definitely a keeper! I followed suggestions from other reviews using 1/2 cup brown sugar, 1/4 cup honey, 1/2 tsp ground cloves, and 1/3 cup butter. I put the ham on the roasting rack in the Ninja 3-in-1 slow cooker set to the oven setting at 325° for 1 hour and 15 minutes, basting every 10 minutes. I put baby carrots under the the roasting rack and added one can of ginger ale. The only thing I would do differently is that I wouldn't score it next time as the top came out a little dry. I might turn it over halfway through next time. I don't think I'll be trying many other ham recipes now.
