Grilled Fish Tacos with Chipotle-Lime Dressing

Reviewed: Jun. 19, 2010
A-m-a-z-i-n-g. Thank you! The chipotle sauce was about ten times more than I actually needed, but it was yummmmmmmmmmy. The adobo sauce was tricky to find, though. Read ingredients carefully on other sauces until I found one made with the right peppers. Will make again and again.

Jalapeno Popper Spread

Reviewed: Jun. 15, 2008
Oh wow! I've just made this for a Father's Day BBQ and I'm afraid it won't actually make it to the BBQ! My family can't keep thier paws out of it! I tweaked it just a little bit. I added a sprinkle of garlic powder, a little salt and pepper, used the entire 4 oz can of jalapenos, added half of a 4 oz package of shredded parmesan to the mix, topped it with bread crumbs, sprnkled the rest of the shredded parmesan to the top, and baked it. If there's any left, I'll stick it in the microwave for a little bit when I get to the party. But at this rate, it's SO good, I'm just not sure there'll be any left. Thanks for the phenomenal recipe.

Apple Pie by Grandma Ople

Reviewed: Jan. 6, 2008
This is quite possibely the best apple pie we've ever had. I did as others suggested and completely coated the apples before I piled them into the pie. Five apples was plenty. After I piled them in and did my lattice top, I carefully spooned the extra glaze over the lattice crust. It was not only VERY good, it was beautiful.

Cranberry Sauce I

Reviewed: Jan. 6, 2008
Easy and excellent. Make sure you give them enough time to all pop open, to fully foam, and then simmer for a while. Don't be too quick, or consistency will suffer. It also helps to make them well in advance. They will thicken up considerably upon cooling/refrigeration. These are excellent and VERY easy.

Vegetarian Refried Beans

Reviewed: Jan. 6, 2008
These are so easy, and my family loves them. To spice them up a bit, I add a good sprinkling of kosher salt early on, and also a small can of diced mild green chiles. I use nowhere near the amount of garlic called for. I use about 1/4 teaspoon. Thanks for the easy, easy, yummy recipe!

Chilaquiles III

Reviewed: Jan. 6, 2008
My family loves these. I've torqued the recipe depending upon what I have in my fridge. Instead of a fresh tomato, I've used a half a can of cut up tomatoes. Instead of fresh chiles, I've used a can of diced mild green chiles or diced jalapenos. Yum!

Crab Stuffed Mushrooms

Reviewed: Jan. 6, 2008
These were very good. Instead of 7 oz of crab, I went to a fish market and bought 10 oz of fresh crab meat. That cured any "too wet" problem others were concerned about. I also cooked them five minutes longer, adding some shredded cheese to the top for those last few minutes. Very nice.

Pastry for Double-Crust Pie

Reviewed: Dec. 24, 2007
Late Christmas Eve, and I was short one pie crust (to lattice an apple pie). A complete novice at pie crusts, I tried this one--I needed simple, fast, and a short ingredient list. I did add one tablespoon of sugar, but otherwise followed it down to the last sentence. The key was definitely in my pastry cutter, and cutting the shortening in until the consistency was crumbly. It was well worth the extra effort. After that, I added two tablespoons of water at a time and mixed well with a fork after each two. I didn't need any extra water. I split the dough in two, wrapped each ball in saran wrap, and fridged them until I needed them. The dough wasn't sticky at all. It turned out so beautiful, I ended up ditching my store-bought dough and using this one for the whole pie instead of just the top. SUPER simple, took all of five minutes to get it mixed together. Thanks!

Peanut Butter Cup Cookies

Reviewed: Aug. 5, 2007
I made this when company was coming for the holidays. It was so good, a guest asked me to whip up another batch. I ended up making three more during the weekend. Quick, easy, and a creative change for the kids to take to school for the class on special occasions.

Quick and Easy Clam Chowder

Reviewed: Aug. 5, 2007
This was a big hit at the holidays. I doubled the recipe in a huge crockpot, and it was way too much. Next time I'll stick to the recipe but still crockpot it. I served in hollowed-out bread bowls I bought from the bakery.

Goulash Supreme

Reviewed: Aug. 5, 2007
The whole family loved this, and it was very quick and easy. Changes I made: added one 14 oz can of corn, with the water. Added small can of fire roasted chilis. Added a tsp each of oregano, basil, parsley. I cooked the noodles first and added them at the end, then simmered. Served with cornbread and salad. Excellent!

Maple Glazed Ribs

Reviewed: Jul. 22, 2006
Whole family loved this. First time I made it, I used pancake syrup instead of maple syrup. It was fabulous and doesn't taste any different when I use the pricier maple syrup. I have also substituted dijon or table mustard for mustard powder and it didn't affect the taste. I have also added a shot of brandy. Yum! I use beef ribs: cover a cookie sheet with foil and then nonstick spray, put ribs on, spray another sheet of foil and cover ribs tightly. Bake low (225, 250) for 1.5 hrs or until done. Take out, baste with this awesome recipe, let sit in fridge covered, then bbq them for flavor. Fabulous!

Jamie's Cranberry Spinach Salad

Reviewed: Jul. 22, 2006
Even my kids, who think they hate spinach, love this salad/dressing. In a crunch, I've skipped toasting the sesame seeds. It makes a difference. Don't skip. Dressing makes more than some may want, so add to salad sparingly, toss, add more. That way you don't drown the bottom of the bowl. Everyone swoons over this. A guaranteed hit.
