Baked Taco Dip

Reviewed: May 14, 2014
This was just OK for us. Nothing terrible but nothing to write home about either. It is a quick and easy recipe but I didn't like the distinct layers - the cheese on the top was hard to 'dip'. All mixed up was much easier to eat although it didn't look great.

Hot Dogs with Coney Sauce

Reviewed: May 14, 2014
This was a bit too sweet for me - it might have been the generic chili sauce I bought. (I should have stuck to a name brand) The family liked it though.

Asian-Inspired Ginger Dressing

Reviewed: May 14, 2014
We liked this a lot but it makes a lot more than you would expect from the number of servings. It isn't quite like the dressing you get at a Teppan Grill but close - very close. Thanks!

Easter Chick Deviled Eggs

Reviewed: May 14, 2014
Fun recipe to make with kids. I had to leave out the horseradish because the kids would not like that. Very cute idea. Thanks!

Donna's White Sauce

Reviewed: May 14, 2014
The instructions leave a little to be desired but the sauce is a good one. It probably should be called Cheese Sauce though. Melt the butter, add the flour and stir and cook. Add the milk or cream - start with only a portion and stir until smooth then add the remaining milk or cream. Stir until smooth. Add the cheese. Easy and no lumps.

Easy Beer Batter

Reviewed: May 14, 2014
Nice straight forward recipe. If you don't have self rising flour, no worries. Use all purpose flour and add 1 1/2 teaspoon of baking powder and 1/2 teaspoon of salt for each cup of flour. I did beer batter fish with a light Mexican beer. Very nice.

Refried Bean and Cheese Enchiladas

Reviewed: May 14, 2014
These rank high for EASY of course you can add meat, but you don't have too. For a fast family dinner these fit the bill.

Tempura Batter

Reviewed: May 14, 2014
This is pretty good, using just egg whites does make for a lighter batter. I would suggest using Club Soda instead of cold water - that makes for an even lighter batter.

Rhubarb Shortbread Bars

Reviewed: May 14, 2014
Even with rhubarb being tart this had a bit too much sugar for us. I loved the crust and the crispy edges but the middle was a little mushy and very sweet. Great idea though and with a bit less sugar I bet would be great.

Karen's Rolled Sugar Cookies

Reviewed: Apr. 9, 2014
My granddaughters really enjoyed these. Based on others reviews that the dough was dry and crumbly, I used the full 2 1/2 cups of flour and two whole eggs. The dough was a bit soft but rolling between the sheets of parchment worked really well. Once the dough was chilled it was easy enough to work with. I love the rolling and baking on parchment, it works great and makes for easy clean up too!

Mexican Gravy

Reviewed: Apr. 6, 2014
If I could give this 3 1/2 stars I would. It comes close to the Mexican chili sauce - I know and love. If you can get it use New Mexico or California Chili powder - CA chili is milder than New Mexico Chili powder (both are sold in small cello bags in the Mexican section of the market for less than a $1.00) Also, I would suggest using chicken broth instead of water. I made this as a directed using CA chili powder & water - the taste was lacking so I added a cube of chicken bouillon - that really bumped up the flavor. This sauce makes a great wet burrito or for a sauce for Chili Rellenos.

Pasta Bake

Reviewed: Apr. 3, 2014
I used Johnsonville Mild All Natural Italian Sausage instead of ground beef - omitted the canned mushrooms - it was a great FAST and EASY dinner. Using the Johnsonville sausage eliminated the need for additional seasonings that this recipe seemed to lack. I did bake this recipe but I think it would be great to make and put in a slow cooker on warm for a couple of hours to have ready after work or sports practice. The kids and adults both loved it!

Sister Beth's Carrot Cake

Reviewed: Mar. 25, 2014
Keeper! Kid approved too! Make sure you drain the pineapple! I made this as directed - I did leave out the coconut and nuts - family preference - did not adjust any other amounts or ingredients. I used a 13 x 9 pan and it was done in about 45 minutes. One note - next time I would probably add a teaspoon of baking powder in addition to the baking soda to give it a bit more lift. The taste was perfect as written. Enjoy!

Texas Mess

Reviewed: Mar. 23, 2014
I am giving this a 3 star but it could easily be a 4. Avocado, even with lemon or lime juice will brown - to me, this is NOT a make ahead dip unless the avocado to totally covered in sour cream etc.... to block the air from oxidizing the avocado. Canned beans already have plenty of salt as does the taco sauce. I don't think this needed 2 cups of cheese - I used about 1/4 cup of grated cheese and it was more than enough. As written there are just too many 'little' things that are not quite right. Layered dips are very easy - I don't suggest holding Avocado overnight unless you absolutely must.

Bacon Cheeseburger Dogs

Reviewed: Mar. 15, 2014
These are for MEAT eaters! Mine were huge! Mind you my all beef dogs were big so the hamburger also had to be large. I 'lightened' them up by only using one slice of bacon and one slice of cheese per burger. All kidding aside - IF I were to make these again I would either place them on a rack over a lined sheet pan or do them on the grill, indirect. I used non-stick Reynolds foil on the sheet pan, they did not stick but I did not like them sitting in a pool of grease. (Yes, I used lean beef) The 'boys' got a kick out of these!

Sweet and Spicy Salmon with Orange Salsa

Reviewed: Mar. 7, 2014
The rub is a solid 5 stars - it would be good on just about anything! Instead of Salmon I used Steel Head trout. (A firm red fish like salmon.) Hubby cannot eat grapefruit so I made the salsa with Cara Cara oranges which was perfect. (blood oranges would be great). I lined a sheet pan with parchment paper and placed the fish on one side and asparagus on the other end. I did change the cooking time and temperature to 400 degrees convection setting for 10 minutes. Both the fish and the asparagus were done at the same time. Fast, easy, delicious and healthy too. Served on a bed of rice with a spinach salad side. Even the fish hating hubby like this.
