Berdean's Cube Steak

Reviewed: Sep. 16, 2012
I used this to make flour tacos. I made this with a really thin, really cheap cut of meat, and it turned out so delicious everyone thought I used brisket! It was a bit salty, but not so salty the tortillas/rice we used couldn't redeem it.

Jim Kaczmarek's Chili

Reviewed: May 16, 2012
This was delicious! Eating this as I type. After reading the reviews and seeing complaints about saltiness (being sensitive to salt myself) I tried my best to use all low sodium ingredients, omitted the salt, and used just a couple of bouillon cubes instead of the four tablespoons of granules, as I didn't have any. I made the sauce (basically everything but the meat, onions, garlic, and beans) the night beforehand, adding a small can of tomato paste and four bay leaves instead of two. I think leaving the mixture in the fridge overnight helped everything mingle. The day of, I browned ground beef with half a large onion (I'm a lightweight when it comes to cutting onions) with garlic powder (as I didn't have cloves.) I drained the mix then poured everything (waiting on the beans, using black instead of pinto) into my crockpot for a few hours. I don't see where the complaints about spiciness come from. When I went to add the beans on the last leg of the recipe, it was still this side of bland- and I'm a total baby when it comes to spicy food! So I added a couple of shakes of all the spices used. Served with a dollop of sour cream, grated cheddar, and a handful of fritos! Next time will probably add another can of black beans, another can of tomato paste, and another half or full pound of meat, and perhaps some chives/green onion on top of the sour cream for garnish.

Cranberry Gelatin Salad

Reviewed: Nov. 23, 2011
Yum! This was very good, and I do not even like cranberry sauce that much. I made the cream cheese topping someone suggested, but it would have been delicious without it too. (I would suggest making one batch with topping and one without, the cream cheese was too sweet and heavy for some people's taste.) I accidentally dumped an entire 16 oz can of pineapple in instead of the smaller amount, but it tasted just as delicious! I added cut up peaches and pears too, and I rinsed and used the cherries from some canned pie filling since I couldn't find a can of just plain cherries- still good!
