Garlic-Ginger Chicken Wings

Reviewed: Jan. 19, 2014
Some of the BEST wings we have ever had! I baked them using stoneware and it was fine. No tweaking needed on this recipe in our opinion. Serving these at a Superbowl party. Will work great on drumsticks too. Deliciously done Chef John!

Honey-Garlic Glazed Meatballs

Reviewed: Apr. 30, 2011
Excellent recipe! Used store bought meatballs and cooked in a slow cooker. I doubled the sauce and added 1 tbsp pepper flakes. They took the meatballs over the top with their pop of flavor. Very nice variation to my usual (and popular) grape jelly/chili sauce recipe.

Amy's Cilantro Cream Sauce

Reviewed: Jan. 22, 2011
FANTASTICO! I softened my cream cheese in the microwave on "defrost/fish" for 1.5 minutes. Also cut back on the cilantro this first time because I didn't want to be overwhelmed. A jar of LaVictoria salsa verde (medium) fit the bill. Make it a day in advance so the flavors can get happy together. Fresh, unique and so very tasty!! I foresee many uses for this!

Roast Sticky Chicken-Rotisserie Style

Reviewed: Oct. 22, 2010
Excellent - I usually do this "beer-butt" style. The slow-and-low method is definitely the way to go with the bird. So tasty!!!!!

Charley's Slow Cooker Mexican Style Meat

Reviewed: Oct. 21, 2010
I took the recipe statement "please season to taste" to heart (especially after reading all the reviews) and got a wonderful outcome. I used a 5lb roast (trimmed). Put in a whole bottle of Chalulla's Chile & Garlic hot sauce. The sauce plays SUCH an important role in this dish so go with something special like chipotle flavors or this garlic blend. Who wants to taste vinegar? Of course I dosed it up with a few tbsp of Emerils Southwestern blend and some cumin. Also used beef broth instead of water. Of course the seasoning is not going to hit the center of the roast folks, that's why you shred and return to the pot to simmer - then it absorbs the juices! This made a lot of meat so when I stored it I added a cup or more of the juice (strained) into the container. Just made some Machaca this morning and it was PERFECT! This is a GREAT recipe if you follow the few extra tweaks needed. This goes in my "keeper" file.

Old-Fashioned Swedish Glogg

Reviewed: Jan. 25, 2010
This is a must during the winter holidays in our house. I have been to some large Danish parties where they use gallon jugs of Sangria with the addition of the other alcohol so I may try that. You can also serve raisins and dried cranberries soaked in dark rum on the side along with the slivered almonds. A truly wonderful drink that will get a lot of comments from those who may not be familiar with it. A definite party maker!!! Skoal!

Swedish Meatballs

Reviewed: Jan. 23, 2010
I'm 1/2 Svenska and grew up enjoying my Mamma's meatballs. We are having my husbands Danish family over for Smörgåsbord and wanted to prepare something authentic for them to enjoy. These truly fit the bill. I used some ground pork in the mix and added an egg. After freezing them for 10 min they were baked at 375 for 20 min. I deglazed the baking pan to make the gravy. Threw in a dollop sour cream and used my Tony Chachere brown gravy mix as the base. These will sit in the fridge tonight and will be warmed up in a crock pot tomorrow while I do other things and the flavors will have time to get happy together. Highly recommend!

Irish Coffee

Reviewed: Dec. 18, 2009
A favorite winter drink in our house! We enjoy these in a thermos while walking near the water on Naples Island in Long Beach watching the boat parade. Keeps you nice and toasty. We also enjoy these on Christmas morning along with mimosas and Breakfast Casserole (recipe on this site). This is a great drink, but be careful cause they are STRONG!

Best Spinach Dip Ever

Reviewed: Dec. 15, 2009
I followed the directions to the letter and used the Knorr Leek Soup Mix. The water chestnuts gave it a nice crunch however all I tasted was onion dip. Served in a nice bread bowl too ($4.00 for a bowl). I don't remember this tasting this much like a traditional onion dip. Nobody ate it at my party.

Easy Shake and Bake Chicken

Reviewed: Aug. 24, 2009
Great starter recipe! A summary from all the reviews is: Make the spices your own!! I sprayed my baking dish and chicken parts (prior to flour coating) with butter flavored Pam. Of course I threw in some of my trusty Emeril's seasoning to boost the flavor. Good stuff - a regular in our house and a great use for those more economical (bone in w/skin) cuts of chicken we are using in these tough $$ times. Highly recommend!!!

Slow Cooker Chicken Stroganoff

Reviewed: Aug. 5, 2009
5 stars for ease and flavor! This recipe is fantastic and no major changes are required. You easily can adjust the ingredients to your taste or dietary requirements. There are even some other additions you could consider: Bacon, mushrooms, onions, white wine or even a can of green chilies. Hard to believe that this wonderful dish is both Weight Watchers AND Atkins friendly. Definitely a keeper!

Scrambled Egg Muffins

Reviewed: Jul. 25, 2009
These are essentially little omelette cups. It would take just as long to prepare them traditionally in a pan, but I do like the portability factor and portion control. These are a great low-carb meal or snack to have frozen and ready to pop in the microwave whenever you need them.

Refried Beans Without the Refry

Reviewed: Jul. 20, 2009
Mucho Gusto! Perfect recipe. Lots of room for variation with the beans. I've used 1/2 black and 1/2 pinto, all pinto and also with all white peruvian beans. An immersion blender works well to mash the beans. Highly recommend!

Light Oat Bread

Reviewed: Jul. 18, 2009
Hurray!!! I have had my machine for a couple of years now and tried every boxed bread on the market with poor results. The bread simply would not rise! I have purchased bread flour, vital wheat gluten and expensive jars of instant bread machine yeast. Finally, a recipe that rises to the top of my machine without falling or never making it to the top!! I was about to throw that sucker out the window! For this recipe I used my King Arthur bread flour and Fleishmans rapid rise yeast. Substituted honey for the brown sugar. On the basic cycle my bread rose to the top of my machine and baked perfectly. Yes, it's a bit dense but that is what I expect from a home made bread. Will DEFINITELY make this again! TYVM for posting!!!

Easy 'Charro' Beans

Reviewed: Jul. 16, 2009
Fantastico! A friend served this with ribs at a cookout and I memorized the different tastes and came to this site and did an ingredient search. Viola... Charro Beans! The only difference is she used chopped hot dogs in place of the ham and hers had a rough-chopped bell pepper (both of which I prefer and use as well). DO NOT skip the chipotles - they MAKE this dish with their smokey goodness. Will be a good side dish for Chilaquilles on this site and of course as a side for ribs! I LOVE THIS RECIPE.

Amazing Chicken

Reviewed: Jul. 14, 2009
A Keeper! Like everyone else I added spices to my bread crumb mixture. Used Contadina 4 cheese bread crumbs and liberally added Emeril's Orignal Essecence and some Italian Seasoning. Lightly coated 4 large breasts with 1/2 cup of regular mayo using a basting brush and only needed about 1.5 cups of crumb mixture. Baked at 425 for 40 minutes and it was fantastic. Nice and moist with great flavor. Served with steamed mixed veggies and an herbed pasta in sauce (Rice-A-Roni). Went down well with a nice oaky Chardonnay. Will add this to my 'favorites' list. Enjoy!

Gourmet Guacamole

Reviewed: Jun. 13, 2009
This is the way we love our homemade guac. I omit the salt and add a healthy dose of cyenne pepper, hot sauce and Emerils Southwest Essesnce for kick. Mayo, sour cream or even cottage cheese will do in a pinch.

Hamburger Vegetable Soup

Reviewed: Apr. 17, 2009
This was a very good base but it did need to be "kicked up a notch". I added 4 dashes of Worcestershire, a good amount of garlic, 2 shakes of Cayenne and several cranks of cracked black pepper. I used a small bag of stew veggies and mixed veggies. Served it with freshly baked 4 cheese biscuits. Highly recommend, but be sure to season to your own taste.

Whisky Tea

Reviewed: Mar. 15, 2009
WONDERFUL...Soothing...Intoxicating! Who can ask for more? I grew up on Russian Lemon Tea with Milk & Honey so this was right up my alley. A friend from Poland suggested adding Whiskey to a sweet black tea when you have a sore throat or are generally feeling sick. It should be sipped while wrapped-up in a warm blanket with your PJ's, or some other comfortable clothes. An excellent brew for rainy nights by the fire or to serve to company as a winter aperitif when you are out of Swedish Glugg/mulled wine (wink). Skoal!

Mexican Rice II

Reviewed: Mar. 8, 2009
Really good! Of course I used 1.5 tsp of my trusty Emeril's Southwestern Essence for the spices. Other than that, I followed the recipe as written. Be sure to watch your heat so the rice doesn't dry out (every stove is different). After fluffing the rice, put the lid right back on it to let it wet steam a bit more because there may be some crunchies at the bottom. This is such a simple, tasty recipe that I'll never go back to the boxed stuff again!! Will go great with the "Refried Beans Without The Refry" recipe also on this site.
