Peppered Shrimp Alfredo

Reviewed: Aug. 29, 2010
I just made this for the first time the other day. It turned out great! Instead of using Shrimp, I grilled some chicken, cut it into slices and laid it ontop of the Penne Alfredo. It was really good. We enjoy a little spice in our food, but my 8 year old thought this was too spicy. So if you are making it for sensitive tastebuds, you might want to omit the cayenne.

Blackened Seasoning Mix

Reviewed: Aug. 29, 2010
This is a great blackening recipe. I have made it a few times and it is super easy to make with mostly ingredients that I always have on hand. I do have an 8 year old who it is too spicy for so if you might need to omit the cayenne for those with sensitive tastebuds.

Red Broccoli Salad

Reviewed: Jan. 31, 2010
I have made this salad twice and it is OUT OF THIS WORLD! The ingredients sounded funny at first, but whatever...it works! I served it with shrimp and it went rather well. There was nothing left after my dinner party was through.

Slow Cooker Cheesy Chicken and Tortillas

Reviewed: Jan. 31, 2010
Not lovin it ~ it was okay, but a little bland, a little mushy, a little too much shredded chicken for my taste. And too serve this with rice after all the tortillas are already in the casserole was a little bit too much dry for lack of a better word. This isn't a real saucy dish, so when you plop this onto a bed of rice, it doesn't blend so well.

Brown Jug Soup

Reviewed: Jan. 31, 2010
I really did like the base of this soup. I actually mixed the ingredients together and put it in my crockpot on low and let it simmer all day. The only thing I did not like is the abundance of veggies. I think next time I would add brocolli, potatoes and a few other fresh veggins. The mixed vegtables were a bit too much for my desire.

Best Egg Rolls

Reviewed: Jan. 31, 2010
I am giving this recipe a three. Yes, it was tasty, but two things really turned me off. One being they were way too greasy even after letting them sit on a paper towel to drain. I did use my Little Daddy Fryer, so if I try it again, I would probaby opt to fry them in a pan with less oil. Second, way to much pork for my taste. I think half pork and half cabbage mixture would be a better mix. I used the coleslaw prepared bag and it worked out super good and would definetly suggest it.

Slow Cooker Chicken Cordon Bleu

Reviewed: Jan. 31, 2010
I loved this recipe. It is not your elegant chicken cordon bleu a much easier, less extravagant version, but great to toss together in the crockpot and come back to a complete meal. I followed the recipe to a T with a few minor exceptions. I used a thicken cut ham lunchmeat and cut it into 1" squares. I loved the sauce, but next time I am going to use 2 cans of cream of chicken and 2 cup milk for the sauce. YUMMY!

Jeff's Chili Con Queso

Reviewed: Dec. 26, 2008
WOW ~ Super Chili Con Queso ~ I followed the directions to a "T" and it turned out perfect. I made this for an appetizer for Christmas Eve ~ I usually do the Velveeta/Rotel recipe, but this one surpasses it by far. There were a lot of yummy appetisers on the table, but my hubby said this one was the best. A KEEPER ~

Beer Margaritas

Reviewed: Aug. 11, 2008
I have tried these margaritas before at my sister-in-laws house and remember not being very impressed at all by them. Sometimes she will improvise too much - so I thought I would follow the directions exactly and see what they tasted like. The only drink I drink is Margarita's - it does not matter how cold or what we are eating, that is all I drink, so I know a good Margarita...plus I live in Texas and we have lots of Tex-Mex Restaurants that specialize in Margarita's. Anyway, I did not care for the Margarita's at all and could taste the beer in them. I had one guest that would flat out not drink it after she tasted it and some other people said that they were "o.k." - So I just don't get all the 5 STARS. I guess if you know a good Margarita, then this recipe would just rank around 3.

Carla's Fruit Dip

Reviewed: Aug. 11, 2008
This was really good - I made it for a gathering last night that had several children in attendance as well. The only thing that I changed was that I used 8 oz. of cream cheese as opposed to 3 oz. Everyone loved it and it was devoured quickly.

Sausage Jalapeno Poppers

Reviewed: Aug. 11, 2008
I had a little get together last night and decided to make these instead of my usual deep fried poppers, which are really good too! I read the reviews and made a few changes. First I cut the bacon in half and then by placing a paper towel on a plate, put the bacon down and then another paper towl on top and cooking them in the microwave for 1 1/2 minutes. This removes lots of the grease and decreases the cooking time. I brushed both sides of the bacon with honey prior to wrapping the jalapenos - this was a great suggestion from a previous reviewer. To the sausage mix I added 2 or 3 green onions and 3/4 cup cheddar cheese. They turned out YUMMY!

Baked Spaghetti Squash Lasagna Style

Reviewed: Sep. 19, 2007
OMG~ Love this recipe. It is definetly a keeper. I made it for dinner tonight as a low-cal, healthy recipe and everyone loved it (with the exception of my 5 year old daughter that doesn't like anything unless it begins with chicken and ends with nuggets :-) I would not change a thing!

Annie's Fruit Salsa and Cinnamon Chips

Reviewed: Apr. 30, 2007
I'm not sure what all the hype is about tis recipe, but I found it to be okay. I did make the recipe ahead of time by about 4 hours and it seemed to be a little on the mushy side, so I don't recommend making it too far in advance. It was good, but from the rating and reviews I thought it would be outstanding, which in my opinion it was not. I served it with a fajitas thinking it might compliment the Mexican dish since I found the recipe in that category.

Marinated Flank Steak

Reviewed: Apr. 30, 2007
This is an absolutely wonderful marinade. I had MUCH success with the finished recipe. I followed the directions to a "T" with one exception...I always place my marinades in a big Ziploc zipper bag. It really works great and easy clean-up. Before this marinade I always bought a specialty pre-marinade skirted beef that was a little pricey. The evening I made this I had my company taste test both marinades and this one won hands down. I guess I will start marinading my own fajitas!

Southwestern Egg Rolls

Reviewed: Apr. 30, 2007
This was a big success for a dinner party we had over the weekend. Everyone LOVED it - I followed the directions exactly. The only thing that threw me off was the cooking time. First of all I used a Daddy Deep Fryer, but I only fried them for 5 minutes. The outsides looked a little bit browner then I like for them to look, but they did not taste at all over cooked or burnt. If I fried them for less time then the inside was still frozen. Anyway, besides my frying time varying ~ These little appetizers are wonderful! Next time I will make a double batch and freeze them!

Barbecued Korean Ribs

Reviewed: Sep. 18, 2006
If I could have given this more stars, I would have. This is a wonderful recipe. I followed the directions to a "T" with the exception of beef short ribs, I used Beef Boneless Ribs with out bones. I used a gas grill on 350 degrees and turned them every three minutes four times (make sure that you get the criss-cross lines :-) and they turned out better than I expected. We will be having this again!

S'mores

Reviewed: Jun. 26, 2006
What can I say...I have made it twice in the last week by request. The kids love it. I even had the "Picky" eater ask to give the recipe for his mom. The only change I make is to make more of the Graham Cracker mix...It seems like when I get to the top there is not enough to cover the entire top, so I just add another cup of graham cracker crumbs/butter. This is really a nice kiddy dessert recipe. Great for sleepovers.
