Baked Potato Soup V

Reviewed: Nov. 15, 2006
As it is this recipe is bland. I added pressed garlic, garlic salt, seasoning salt, black pepper, salt, extra green onions (white and green parts). You do need to add seasonings/spices to your liking, which helps to make it a flavorful soup. Not bad after you add a lot more seasonings.

Chicken Tortilla Soup V

Reviewed: Oct. 7, 2006
Excellente!! I made a pot of this soup and ate up all by myself. Today I am making another pot of this soup, because my family did not get any, it was just that good especially for a sore throat. Recipe is great just as it is. This time I am doubling the recipe, so that my family may enjoy it as well. Mmmmmmmmmmm!!

Award Winning Soft Chocolate Chip Cookies

Reviewed: Oct. 7, 2006
Excellent. I used lemon flavored pudding and it tasted like choc chip cookies w/ a hint of lemon. Next time I will use Vanilla pudding. This is the 3rd day and they are still soft. I added a 1/2 tsp of salt to the flour mixture. I would not change a thing with recipe. They bake well, they have a nice texture, not cake-like but thick. Yummy.

Chicken Enchilada Soup II

Reviewed: Oct. 4, 2006
Yummy. I think it is close to Chili's C. E. soup. I heated a tbsp olive oil and added 2 cloves of garlic and then added 3 small chicken breasts. I cooked the breasts in a pot on both sides until juices were clear. Then I removed the chicken and added the diced onions and cooked until translucent. I poured in 2 (14.5 oz each)cans of chicken broth and stirred. I mixed 1/4 cup of masa harina which is corn flour (Quaker company makes this also found on the aisle where the Latino food products are or near the regular white flour)with a 1/2 cup of water, stir it well to get out lumps and then I added it to the pot that has the chicken broth and onions. Then I mix another 1/4 cup of masa harina with just enough water to make it like a thick, wet paste, stir it until blended, it should not look dry or crumbly, but smooth and sort of thick. I added this mixture to the pot and stirred. Then I added 1 cup water, I made up a package of mc cormick enchilada sauce and added all of it to the pot (approx. 3 cups or more), 16 oz of velveeta cheese, salt, chili powder & cumin. Stirred. Brought to a boil, stirring often so the cheese did not stick as much and also used a non-stick pot. Added diced cooked chicken. Stirred. Reduce heat and I simmer until thick about 5 minutes. This gives the soup a thick/thin top texture, not as grainy from the masa harina. I topped it with pico de gallo and crushed tortilla chips (Tia Rosa Mega thins) and a little shredded cheese. Excellente!!

Best Marinara Sauce Yet

Reviewed: Sep. 25, 2006
I love this recipes with garlic breadsticks. I am not a fan of spaghetti-like sauces, but this marinara sauce taste excellent, I think the white wine gives it a nice flavor. This recipe is very easy to make and not time consuming at all. Wonderful!!!

Fish Tacos

Reviewed: Jun. 28, 2006
I did not make the white sauce. I made the batter for catfish and it was so good. I think the batter would be great on chicken tenders. The batter makes a nice crispy crust with a wonderful taste. yum.

Real Sopapillas

Reviewed: May 12, 2006
These were very good. The initial batch I made came out like bread because I did not flat them out well. My next batch I flattened thinner and it come crispy and chewy with a nice air pocket. I cut them into a small square shape and fried them. When you first put them into the preheated oil, they sink to the bottom and then as they are frying they come up to the top of the oil. I suggest that once they hit the top of the oil turn them over, keep turning every 10 seconds or less, I think it gives a nice air pocket. Only fry 2-3 at a time for better results.

Beer Butt Chicken

Reviewed: Apr. 18, 2006
WOW!!! It is recipes like this, that makes everyone think I can cook. I used Miller lite beer and I cooked (2) 4lbs whole chickens at the same time on my gas grill. I did not double the ingredients. I cooked it for about 1 and 1/2 hours. It so good. It is NOT time consuming at all. I put it on my gas grill and closed the lid and checked on it every 30 minutes. If you are new to cooking, trust me, you can not mess this up. If you do mess this up, then you may need to stick with take out!! Happy Eating, MMMMM.

Restaurant-Style Buffalo Chicken Wings

Reviewed: Jan. 7, 2006
I seasoned the wings with black pepper, garlic powder, paprika, cayenne pepper, seasoning salt and a pinch of salt. I sprayed the wings with cooking spray. Then I baked the wings @ 400 for 2 hours. It was great with or without the hot sauce mixture. I have more baking in the oven right now!!

French Beef Stew

Reviewed: Nov. 27, 2005
Corwynn does it again. I used a non-stick pot, I put the stew meat in it and salt,pepper,chili,onion,garlic powder, thyme and a pinch of cumin. Then I put the flour on top of meat and seasonings and stirred it and then turn stove on, added 12oz water, 2 bouillon cubes and tomatoes and 1 potato. Brought to a boil, reduce heat, covered and simmered for 2 hours. added mustard and 1 can of mixed veggies. Excellent!! Next time I'll make a heck of a lot more.

Sweet Potato Casserole VI

Reviewed: Nov. 25, 2005
This was a very good dish, like a dessert. I added mini marshmallows on top of the pecan topping and baked for 42 minutes. The marshmallows browned on top and was a little crunchy, it complimented the pecan topping well. Excellent!! :)

Momma's Marinara Sauce

Reviewed: Sep. 20, 2005
I thought this recipe was missing something. However, I gave it a 5 stars because it was good and my family thought it was excellent. I like how simple it is and the diced tomatoes make it some what chunky. For my taste buds though I am going to add oregano, basil and a pinch of baking soda and whatever else I can think of, in otherwords, I am just going work with it. This recipe has potential, I think maybe it was a little bitter. But again a good base or starter recipe.

Best Chocolate Chip Cookies

Reviewed: May 16, 2005
This is a great recipe. The next time I will decrease the flour to 2 1/2 cups. They stay soft even after 3 days in a ziploc bag. I also froze the dough into balls using a cookie scoop and when I was ready to bake the cookies it was very easy, the taste was still very good. I did not use the nuts.

Chili Chicken Stew

Reviewed: May 16, 2005
This is a very flavorful stew. I cooked mine in a crockpot, but the next I will make on stove top, when you put in a crockpot the broth seems to evaporate more. The green bell pepper gives it a nice taste.

Pollo Fajitas

Reviewed: Feb. 8, 2005
This recipe did not have the bold fajita taste that I was looking for. I sprinkled more chili powder and cumin to give it more flavor. I used a non-fat cooking spray instead of oil and cooked it in a non-stick skillet. HOWEVER, the taste was good to roll in a flour tortilla, with cheese, salsa, lettuce and ranch dressing. Also, I marinated the chicken for 6 hours.

Spiced Beef Stew

Reviewed: Jan. 16, 2005
Excellent! I sprayed pot with no fat cooking spray instead of margarine and cooked lean stew meat. I used Natural Light beer. I sprinkled 1/4 cup of flour, stirred as I sprinkled so it would not get chunky. Covered pot and cooked on a low setting for 1 and 1/2 hours on stove top. The pot I used has a non-stick coating. The only regret I have is that I did not make more. My 6 year old son nearly ate the whole pot of stew.

Southern Candied Sweet Potatoes

Reviewed: Aug. 25, 2004
Excellent. This how sweet potatoes are supposed to be. Y'all with "southern" sweet potatoes they are supposed to be saucy, juicy or runny. So, don't try to boil or get rid of the brown sauce, if you want, just pour some or all of the sauce off. Cut the SWEET POTATOES not YAMS(looks like a sweet potato, but kind of stringy when cooking) in bigger chunks. I have eaten sweet potatoes for years and they are supposed to be SWEET, SAUCY and MUSHY or mashed.
