Glazed Chicken Wings

Reviewed: Mar. 22, 2007
I love this recipe. 1) I seasoned my wings with garlic powder, onion powder and a little seasoning salt. 2) I baked the wings at 400 degrees for 45 minutes on one side and then turned them over and cooked them for another 45 minutes on the other side, ( I like my wings baked crispy, not soggy). 3) Then I mixed together the honey, bbq sauce and a 1/4 cup of soy sauce in a bowl and coat the wings one by one using a spoon to mix the wings in the sauce. I returned the wings to the pan and cook an additional 20 minutes. Excellent texture and taste for me. It sounds like a lot of work but it is not. I usually make about 20 wings. Thanks for the recipe. Oh and F.Y.I when you bake chicken coat the pan with olive oil, I use 3-4 tbsp of olive oil, so that the chicken does not stick the my pan.

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!!

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.

Meatball Nirvana

Reviewed: Feb. 5, 2012
OMG!! This recipe deserves 10 stars. I reduce the italian seasoning to 1 tsp and the oregano to 1/2 tsp. I used onion powder in replace of the onion. I used 2% milk instead of skim milk. I used 1/4 cup of italian bread crumbs. I did not use red pepper flakes. I used the recipe for meatballs and get this...MEAT NACHOS!! For meat nachos you prepare the meat as usual but do not make meat into balls. Just leave the meat scrambled and put it an ovenproof glass pan or whatever you use to bake with. Let it cook for 10 to 15 minutes in a convection oven or in a regular oven it may take up to 20 minutes to be done. I love you lovestohost for this recipe.

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.

Oven-Fried Catfish

Reviewed: Apr. 26, 2012
This tasted so good, better than fried. Cut fish into strips. Dip fish in 2% milk, then dip into a bowl of seasonings (seasoning salt, onion powder, garlic powder, paprika, little garlic salt, blk pepper) on one side of the fish strip and then dip into cornmeal. Served with southern cabbage & sweet potatoes with tartar sauce and hushpuppies on the side. **Only dip one side of the fish strip lightly into the bowl of seasoning, anymore than that the fish would be very salty.***

Golden Rum Cake

Reviewed: Aug. 25, 2010
EXCELLENT!! I will not make this cake again because I ate almost half of it. I used pecans instead of walnuts. To me, this is one of the best and easiest cakes to make. I decided to use 1/4 cup of rum instead of a 1/2 cup of rum, it came out perfect. I will make this for holidays. Again, EXCELLENT!!!

Mother's Pot Roast

Reviewed: Jan. 6, 2010
EASY!! I used olive oil instead of cooking spray, 8 oz of tomato sauce and 1 cup prego spaghetti sauce. I seasoned with garlic powder, onion powder, seasoning salt and bay leaf. My FROZEN bottom round roast (pot roast) came out nice and moist. I did not make gravy, I just put the sauce over each serving and ate it. I cooked it for 9 hours on low. ADDING seasonings or spices is a must. Loved it!!

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!!

St. Louis Toasted Ravioli

Reviewed: Mar. 24, 2011
Excellent. I could not stop eating the ravioli and I don't even like ravioli. I used great value beef ravioli from w**lmart, progresso italian bread crumbs and classico tomato & basil sauce. I actually dipped my ravioli in the sauce instead of pouring it over the ravioli. The taste reminds me of sausage pizza and I had a salad on the side. Loved it!!

We loved it. Next time I will add more strawberries or 1 tsp of strawberry preserves, just to bring out more of the strawberry flavor.

Supreme Strawberry Topping

Reviewed: Feb. 24, 2012
I used frozen strawberries, excellent. The next time I made this recipe using frozen blueberries, excellent. My family love this recipe. You can not mess this recipe up. To make it a little thicker use cornstarch a little at a time, until its to your liking. 10 stars for taste & being easy to make. We put this topping on PANCAKES!! Oh and by the way, when I make this recipe, I put everything in a pot and let it cook. I DID NOT USE A BLENDER TO PUREE. I let it cook until the fruit is soft and looks like puree and then refrigerate it until ready to use the next morning for breakfast. If you like bigger pieces of fruit, just add a few pieces the last few minutes of cooking. Yum!!

Chili I

Reviewed: Dec. 1, 2009
The perfect chili for MY taste buds. I used 1 tbsp of veg oil, 1 can of kidney beans and GROUND TURKEY instead of beef. The chili is not thick, which makes it perfect over a slice of cornbread or with corn chips or my fave NACHOS. I don't call this a thick and chunky chili but just a perfect chili for people like me. I don't like a lot of stuff in chili, ex: chili meat, grease, beer or chunky stuff. Since I used turkey, I made sure to add more spices to the chili, like seasoning salt, onion powder and cayenne pepper. My kids like it and my husband and I loved it. You can thicken this chili by using a mixture of (1 tsp) flour and a little bit of water to make a paste and then add it to the chili. If you just add flour without water, you will probably have "flour balls" or streaks of flour that will be hard to get rid of. Keep in mind if you add a flour and water mixture, make sure to add more spices. Also use as much flour and water paste as needed for your desired thickness. I think the chili recipe the way it is written is PERFECT!! Enjoy!!

Beef Nacho Casserole

Reviewed: Aug. 25, 2010
I love it. I use ground turkey instead of beef. I use a half of jar of taco sauce instead of salsa and 1/4 cup of miracle whip. I add cumin, onion powder, garlic powder and chili powder because ground turkey requires a lot more seasoning than beef. I serve this with salad on the side or a vegetable. Yum.

Salisbury Steak

Reviewed: Mar. 12, 2009
I used 1 pkg of ground turkey 85/15. I DID NOT use the egg,ketchup, water, worcesershire or mustard powder. What I did was made the patties as it is written in step 1 but without the egg. Then I used the remaining of french onion soup mixed with a half jar of brown gravy. To make it thick I made a paste out of 1 tbsp of flour and added a little water to the flour until it was moist and looked like paste. Then I stirred the flour paste in the gravy. Covered and cooked for about 20 minutes. Always add water to flour when you add it to a sauce, if you do not, then your sauce will have "flour balls" little balls of flour. This is a very easy recipe. We love it. I make it once a week at least. Thanks Kelly!!

Carrot Cake III

Reviewed: Jul. 24, 2008
This is an excellent recipe. I used 1 cup white sugar and 1 cup brown sugar. I used walnuts instead of pecans and I added a 1/4 tsp nutmeg. I used non-stick cake pans and used crisco SPRAY. I did not grease or flour cake pans, just sprayed with crisco spray. I mixed all my dry ingredients together and then added it to the batter. I hand grated my carrots for a finer texture. Making another one today. The cream cheese frosting is Perfect.

Southwestern Egg Rolls

Reviewed: Aug. 22, 2007
I love the taste of these egg rolls. I bought a package of Pictsweet brand authentic mexican seasoned corn and black beans (which had onions, red & green bell pepper already in it) in place of most of the veggies in this recipe. Absolutely great. I will not fry them the next time, even though it was great, just trying to cut fat as much as possible. I will definitely make this often.
