Beer Butt Chicken

Reviewed: May 15, 2014
Oh MY GOSH! This was phenomenal! I used boneless skinless chicken breast since we dont ever buy whole chickens. And ended up doing the recipe as follows: 1 c butter 2 Tbsp garlic powder 2 Tbsp paprika 1 - 12 oz can of beer (used the whole thing) 1.5 lbs boneless skinless chicken breast 1.5 tsp italian seasoning .5 tsp onion powder I melted the butter and added all the seasonings and beer to make it into a marinade and then marinated the chicken in the fridge for about 2 1/2 hrs. Took it out and grilled in on medium- high heat. IT WAS SOOOO moist! I kept checking it, and when it was all white i took a bite and almost thought it was not cooked all the way! NOPE! It was COMPLETELY done. I have NEVER had chicken breast so juicy in my LIFE. Just WOW. I know that i havent necessarily a true 5-star based on the recipe as written, but what i did was AMAZING. the only part i will probably do differently next time is use 1.5T garlic salt as it was a little on the salty side. I boiled the marinade while the chicken was cooking and then strained out the solid parts and had an amazing sauce to drizzle on the chicken and polenta. not that it was needed though!

Boilermaker Tailgate Chili

Reviewed: Jul. 12, 2013
This is a really good recipe. Not mind-blowing but definitely a keeper! We are trying to cut animal products back because they cost so dang much, so I replaced all of the meat called for with a lb of diced mushrooms. They simmer down and give a nice meaty texture without the fat and cost!I made a few other changes as well to meet our liking, but it was great! Served it with some tortilla chips only. Thanks for the recipe!

Italian Dressing Mix

Reviewed: Jun. 20, 2013
I have never liked any type of vinaigrette-style dressings. However, I decided to give this one a try based on the rave reviews. I halved the mix recipe and just made a double batch of the actual dressing. I omitted the celery salt since I didn't have any and halved the salt (used himalayan) as others suggested. Also used balsamic vinegar and EVOO. Mixed it up real quick in my vitamix (i hate 'big' pieces of dried spices). oh, i actually used local honey as well instead of sugar. it was pretty good! haven't used in on the salad yet, as I literally just finished making it at 10 PM, but I look forward to giving this a try! I can imagine it would make a pretty good marinade too! :)

Old-Fashioned Pink Lemonade

Reviewed: Jan. 21, 2013
This recipe is sweeter than I prefer my lemonade, but a base recipe! I love to eat lemons like apples, so as you can imagine I like my lemonade tart. The first time I made it I used 2 cups frozen raspberries and blended them with 2 cups water to make 'raspberry juice'. i strained it and used that in place of the cranberry -- it was a huge hit. I also took the sugar down to 1 1/2 cups. The next time I made it i used frozen strawberries. Because they are so sweet, and I had made a bigger batch i did the following: 1 1/2 c frozen strawberries, 14 cups water, 1 1/2 c sugar and 4 c lemon juice. it was perfect! I had a bbq yesterday with about 15 people total and ended up making 6 GALLONS of this in 2 hours!

Cheesy Polenta

Reviewed: Sep. 11, 2012
Holy cow! How is it I have never had this before in my life?! I used half park half Romano instead of cheddar and added about 1/2 tsp thyme and 3/4 tsp oregano and OMG! I mixed the corn meal w water and then added it to the milk and boiled. It cooked up SO fast! I also got impatient and added the cheese and butter while it was simmering which caused small cheese clumps. Oh so good! Plus it gave it a nice texture Imo :D devine! This is a keeper!

Janet's Rich Banana Bread

Reviewed: Jun. 6, 2012
Please excuse my language but this was the BEST EFFIN THING I'VE EVER EATEN! I had a bunch of over ripe bananas that I needed to use and so I decided to make this. After reading just a few reviews I went with it and made the following changes: 1 3/4 c flour, 1tsp baking powder, 1 tsp baking soda, added 1tsp lemon juice, 1/8t ground nutmeg, 3/4tsp ground cinnamon and used 1 1/2 c mashed bananas. I have currently made 2 loaves and will definitely be needing to buy more bananas ASAP! I also omitted the nuts as we don't care for them. :D wish I could give it like a billion stars!

Grandmother's Buttermilk Cornbread

Reviewed: Mar. 21, 2012
SO YUMMY! I made this tonight as a side for my KIDS and HUSBAND to go with chili. I HATE cornbread, or at least i DID until this recipe! OMG, SO GOOD! I will use this recipe often (fighting myself from making another batch RIGHT NOW)! The only thing i changed is that i used fat free milk with a touch of vinegar in place of the buttermilk, since i didnt have any on hand.

Yakisoba Chicken

Reviewed: Apr. 20, 2011
While I did LOVE this recipe, I did make the following changes: 1 T red curry paste, 1 lb chicken breast, 1 carrot, 4 oz soba noodles, PLUS i added a large mushroom, and 1 bell pepper. It was SO amazing! -- But a bit on the spicy side for my taste. Could have been the sub for chile paste, Im not sure, but I couldnt find it at the store. Either way, I will make this again and again! My kids and husband -- all vegetable-hating individuals-- DEVOURED it and asked for more! I was for sure they would stick up there noses to it because of all the vegis but they didnt! Thanks for this tasty, and easy recipe! :D

Potato Chips

Reviewed: Feb. 15, 2011
This is SUCH a brilliant idea! The only thing I changed is the oil -- instead of coating the potatoes, I only spritzed the plate with olive oil and then put the potatoes on without any additional oil. Cooked and then sprinkled with a mix of salt and bbq seasoning...

Too Much Chocolate Cake

Reviewed: May 19, 2010
OMG! I made this cake for a cakewalk, but wanted to try it out first. This is the most sinful piece of heaven I have ever tasted!!!! I used mini chocolate chips and apple sauce in place of the oil, and light sour cream (hey I had to make it as healthy as possible!!! lol) and it was still spectacular! Definitely will make this again!!!

Cheesy Baked Cauliflower

Reviewed: Feb. 4, 2010
I'll start by saying that I used broccoli instead of cauliflower and that my kids and I never liked either vegis before. This is how I steamed my broccoli: I placed about 1 lb of flowerets in a gallon-sized freezer ziploc with 3 Tbsp chicken broth and sealed all except an inch and set it in my microwave for 3 minutes. When it was ready, I spooned the sauce over the broccoli and placed it back in the microwave for about 20 seconds. Took it out and stirred. It was marvelous! Oh... and I also used I can't believe it's not butter! light, and best foods reduced fat mayo as substitute

Pat's Baked Beans

Reviewed: Oct. 26, 2009
An absolute hit! My husband requested baked beans for dinner, and I lost my grandma's recipe. This was the closest resemblence to it, so decided to give it a try. I halved the recipe, and used dry small red beans and dry pinto beans that I had cooked the day before. My children (which are the absolute most picky eaters in the universe!) asked if they could have seconds!!! That is unheard of with my kids! My husband also loved them! I will DEFINITELY be making these again!!!! THANK YOU!!!!!

Best Stovetop BBQ Ribs

Reviewed: Oct. 26, 2009
This was AMAZING! I quadrupled the marinade as well as adding a 1/4c molasses. I didn't have A1 either, so I used 1/2 c bbq sauce and 1/4 vineagar instead. I marinated this for 18 hours in a ziploc bag, and then cooked them on the stovetop ofr approx 2 hours. They literally fell of the bone! My hubby insisted they were better than any restaurant ribs he's ever had!

Cherry Cheese Pie

Reviewed: Oct. 26, 2009
The filling for this pie was absolutely heavenly! I used strawberry filling instead of cherry because its what my hubby prefers. I would have given it a 5 star rating except I wasnt too thrilled about the crust. I think next time I will stick with a graham cracker crust. Definately simple though, and delicious!

Italian Bread Wedges

Reviewed: Aug. 25, 2009
I followed this recipe exactly, and in my opinion, it was a little strong on the herbs that were added, however, I gave it a 5 star because my kids LOVED IT! i've been looking for a good cheesy bread recipe, one that they adore, and this is it! I will definately be making this again, maybe just add a little less herbs.... !!!!

Roast Sticky Chicken-Rotisserie Style

Reviewed: Jul. 5, 2009
I cut up the chicken and placed it in an oven bag after seasoning. I let it set in the refrigerator for about 3 1/2 hrs. It had plenty of flavor, but just not exactly what I was hoping for. I much prefered the recipe that called for salt and paprika only... too me it tasted much better than this recipe. I think it had WAY too many flavors and actually were quite overbearing.

Cream Cheese Ranch Potatoes

Reviewed: Jul. 5, 2009
I made this recipe exactly, except i scaled it down to only 2 servings. It was VERY bland, and almost BITTER??? I think it was because of the ranch seasoning, but I added a couple shakes of seasoning salt and it made it edible enough to finish.
