Old Fashioned Onion Rings

Reviewed: Jul. 26, 2015
This review will undoubtedly be redundant with the plethora of other positive reviews; however, I made these tonight and they were divine!! It took a little bit to get the flavoring/salt ratio set to give them flavor; I ended up putting some garlic salt in with the bread crumbs (I used panko) that I pulsed in the food processor. That gave them something a little extra that I thought tasted pretty good. The whole process was a little messy even though I used ziploc bags to do the coating. That worked well for the flour, but I would probably use a bowl to do the dredging through the batter. The bag just seemed a little too much of a mess, but yes, cleanup was easy that way. Anyway, this recipe is a keeper! It's a little time consuming but so worth it!

Touchdown Taco Dip

Reviewed: Oct. 3, 2014
This is really easy and super good! I accidentally used a 28 oz. container of sour cream, so I ended up adding another quarter packet of taco seasoning as well. I also put in some Rotel diced tomatoes and chiles.

Microwave Popcorn

Reviewed: Aug. 23, 2014
I was always too scared to try this based on the reviews from people who said that their microwaves blew up or the bags started on fire. (However, I think the reviewer who suggested that it's because of people using recycled bags has some merit.) Anyway, I finally tried this without oil -- just 1/4 C. of popcorn in the bag, folded it over, and stood it in the microwave. It took 1.5 minutes to be done before it started to burn, and there were quite a few kernels left in the bottom. However, I am so impressed at how crisp this popcorn was without oil -- it reminded me of theater popcorn! I did add some butter after it was done popping. It was great stuff. No longer am I buying any of the unhealthy prepackaged stuff.

Shiny Cookie Icing

Reviewed: Dec. 22, 2013
This is a great recipe. Easy, fast, and simple to remember. Yes, the recipe definitely needs more milk. I added 2 tablespoons (6 teaspoons) initially and then added another splash later as well. Maybe 2 1/2 tablespoons or possibly 3 is the magic number for this. If you don't get everything iced by the time the frosting begins to harden up, just pop it in the microwave for a few seconds to soften so you can spread it.

Clone of a Cinnabon

Reviewed: Oct. 20, 2013
I chose this recipe mainly because I had a bread maker that was gathering dust in my kitchen (I usually make my bread by hand) and was feeling rather lazy on this Sunday. This recipe is, in short, amazing. I followed it exactly and took the advice of another reviewer, flipping the pan over for about 10 minutes as soon as they were done to let the filling run back over the rolls. This results in filling that comes up and over the top of the roll just a bit, making it extra good! I thought the frosting was good as well. This recipe is a keeper and I'll definitely be using this one in the future. There's nothing like cinnamon rolls with the bread maker doing half the work for you.

Spinach Stuffed Chicken Breasts

Reviewed: Jan. 5, 2013
I think the recipe takes a little tweaking, but it was the first time I had made any sort of stuffed chicken breasts, so it was a good starter recipe. The one issue I have is that the stuffing turns out to be about double what you are able to fit in the chicken breast, so that is a lot of waste. The chicken dried out a little too much and overall the chicken just seemed rather bland. I think next time I will brush the chicken breast with olive oil and herbs to give it a bit more flavor. ONe thing I thought of doing after the fact was crumbling some bacon into the stuffing to add some favor as well. The bacon wrapped around the chicken was just limp and kind of useless. It didn't seem to cook all the way and was just something I ended up pushing to the edge of my plate as I started eating.

Creamy Au Gratin Potatoes

Reviewed: Jan. 5, 2013
I have never attempted homemade au gratin potatoes, and now I am wishing I would have put forth the effort years ago. This is so easy, so tasty, and WAY better than the boxed stuff. I used my food processor to slice the potatoes in about 30 seconds, diced the onion with a press-n-dice thing, and mixed the onions up with all the potatoes rather than creating a separate layer. The cheese sauce was delicious. I wan't sure I was doing it right because it seemed to take a long time for the milk to start thickening, but eventually it did, and it tasted wonderful. (I did make a little more cheese sauce than the recipe called for since I'm a cheeseaholic.) I also microwaved some turkey bacon until crunchy and crumbled it into the potatoes once they were done cooking to add some extra flavor. Next time I will probably microwave the potatoes for a bit to cut down on cooking time.

Fiesta Chicken

Reviewed: Jul. 9, 2012
I made this for supper tonight and it was GOOD! My 8-year old also liked it and rated it 5 stars. I made a few changes to this to comply with the ingredients I had on hand, so I also used crushed tortilla chips rather than tortilla strips. I also left out the green pepper and tomato so that the kids wouldn't go, "Ewwww -- what's the red and green stuff?" This was easy and fast to make and tasty too!

Easy Herb Roasted Turkey

Reviewed: Nov. 24, 2011
I'm 37 and made my first Thanksgiving turkey ever today. I always dreaded the day that I would be asked to host Thanksgiving because I feared making a dry, dull turkey that everyone ate out of sheer politeness. Well, I made this today and I feel like a turkey-cooking pro! Moist, flavorful, and DELICIOUS -- that is what this turkey was. I will make it again and again. THANK YOU!

Best Tuna Casserole

Reviewed: Feb. 28, 2011
I love the good ol' standard tuna casserole, and this is it! I followed the recipe pretty closely, but I omitted the mushrooms. I also added 1 C. sour cream to the soups to combat the dryness problem, and I cooked it in a square 2 1/2 quart casserole rather than the 9x13. This was delicious and is a perfect standby in the dinner rotation.

Parker's Famous Margaritas

Reviewed: Jul. 16, 2010
I was looking for a margarita recipe that replicated the one from our local Mexican restaurant, and this is it! Love the fresh lime juice -- it is what makes this drink. I did back off on the tequila after the first batch because I do not like to taste the tequila over everything else, so I notched it back to 4 oz. instead. GREAT drink, though -- just what I was looking for.

Simple Country Ribs

Reviewed: Apr. 3, 2010
I only barbecued the ribs the first time I tried this recipe. After that, I usually boil them for 40 and then bake for 30. I love the suggestion to boil the ribs in BBQ sauce, though, and that's why I'm giving the 5-star review to this recipe. I'm making these ribs as I write this review, and I cannot wait to taste them. This is a great recipe, no matter how you make the ribs.

Bar-B-Que Sauce

Reviewed: Feb. 7, 2010
I first made the recipe as written (doubled), but when I tasted it, I thought something was missing. It was a little too tangy for what I was going to use it for, so I added another couple squirts of ketchup, a tiny bit of red pepper, some onion powder, and a little honey. Then it seemed to taste just right. This is a great base recipe, though. This was the first time I ever made BBQ sauce, so it was a complete success. Thanks for sharing the recipe.

Delicious Ham and Potato Soup

Reviewed: Jan. 16, 2010
Wow. Even though I inadvertently doubled (or possibly tripled ) this recipe (I went crazy cutting potatoes up), this still turned out. The only change (other than my crazy measurements) was that I added bacon toward the end and a few handfuls of shredded cheese. SO GOOD! Even my picky kids loved this one.

Cheese Crispies

Reviewed: Dec. 9, 2009
Hmmm . . . I had high hopes for this recipe; the photo made these things look like the perfect snack. I followed the recipe exactly, but they are just lacking in something. I think they might be better by adding some ranch dressing mix or something to give it a little flavor; cayenne pepper alone wouldn't be enough to fill that "missing link," in my opinion. I think this would make a good base recipe to play with, though. I made mine on a baking stone so they did not turn out greasy at all.

Fluffy Pancakes

Reviewed: Dec. 9, 2009
Made these for breakfast this morning and they got rave reviews all around. I did have to thin the mix just a tad before making them, and I also had to cook them just under medium heat, otherwise they would get burnt on the outside and runny on the inside. Once I turned down the heat, though, they came out beautifully! The original recipe says it yields 8, but I only got 8 servings after doubling the recipe. Looking forward to freezing a batch of these for hectic school mornings.
