Fresh and Simple Peach Salsa with Cinnamon Sugar Chips

Reviewed: Aug. 14, 2014
Tasty! I did feel like the salsa was a bit heavy on the citrus, but that's just my opinion. I used fresh red cherry tomatoes from my garden and instead of brushing the tortillas w/ butter (which I love), I just sprayed them w/ cooking spray to be a little healthier, and that worked out great. Nice and fresh...I would make this again, but adjust the acidity to suite my taste. Thanks for sharing. :)

Chef John's Pork Wonton Soup

Reviewed: Aug. 13, 2014
We LOVED this soup! I made the wontons a couple of days ago and froze them until I was ready to use them to cut back on some prep time. I just threw the frozen wontons in the soup and they cooked in no time. This does make more wontons than you will need for the soup, but they keep well in the freezer. I wish I would've watched the video before making them though, b/c I totally shaped them wrong, lol, but it doesn't matter how you shape them, they are wonderful and the pork filling is EXCELLENT. I couldn't find shitake mushrooms at the store, so I just used an 8oz. pkg. of sliced white mushrooms, and that was great for us. Also, I didn't have anything to do w/ the rest of the carton on chicken broth, so I just added it in the soup, as well. This was simple to make, super light and fresh tasting...a definite keeper~YUM!, YUM! YUM!! Thanks for sharing. :)

Marry-Me Blueberry Pie

Reviewed: Aug. 11, 2014
Very, VERY good! I used 2 pints of blueberries that I had in the freezer (did not thaw them first). The only thin I think I would do differently next time is to reduce the sugar a bit (maybe by 1/4 cup), b/c I thought it was VERY sweet, but that's just my opinion Everyone else LOVED it as is). This was easy to make and the family really enjoyed it. I would make this again! Thanks for sharing. :)

Corn Fritters with Raspberry Mayonnaise

Reviewed: Aug. 8, 2014
Simple and delicious! I did sprinkle some salt on top after frying, but that was my personal preference. Also, I thought that amount of mayo would make too much sauce for us, so I used 3 tbsps. raspberry preserves and about 2/3 cup mayo (I just eyeballed it and mixed it together w/o heating it up)), and that was the perfect amount for us. These sort of reminded me of funnel cakes (but with corn, of course, lol) I could see maybe adding some sugar to the batter or just sprinkling them w/ some powdered sugar. I will def be making these again~YUM! Thanks for sharing. :)

Creamy Grilled Cheese Roll-Ups

Reviewed: Aug. 8, 2014
Hmmm, not sure how to rate this...I used wheat bread and did some w/ the provolone and some w/ American cheese (for my girls). They were good, and the girls loved them, but they were more work than they were worth, IMO. The cheese was too big for the bread, so that had to be trimmed, then, when you tried to roll it the bread would tear or the cream cheese would come out of the end I did not use a thick layer of cream cheese as the submitter suggested in the instructions). Also, once you put the toothpicks in, you couldn't put them seam side down b/c of the toothpick sticking through there to hold the seam closed. This was a great idea, but it was just too much of a hassle for me...It would've been easier to just make a grilled cheese (still using the cream cheese mixture ans cheese b/c it was tasty), and cut it into sticks, or whatever. Again, this is just my opinion, and someone else may have better luck w/ them. I'm glad I tried these, just wish they would've worked the way I was thinking that they would. Thanks for sharing. :)

Creamy Beef Enchiladas

Reviewed: Aug. 6, 2014
Delicious! I used a whole 8oz. pkg. of pepperjack shredded, and I'm glad I did b/c 1 cup wouldn't have been enough, IMO. Also, the little guy prefers flour tortillas, so I used them (the soft taco size), and got 8, generously filled enchiladas, which was more than enough for us for dinner and lunch leftovers. I only bought 1 can of enchilada sauce, but that was plenty for us. I also topped these w/ some sliced green onions in addition to the cheese and black olives before baking. This was a HUGE hit tonight and that makes this a keeper~YUM! Thanks for sharing. :)

American-Style Creamy Greek Dressing

Reviewed: Aug. 4, 2014
Nice! I was on a roll putting everything into the blender for this and I added the salt...that was a mistake, b/c the feta is salty enough on it's own that I don't think any additional salt is needed. So, aside from it being salty (my own fault for not paying attention), this was very tasty. This would also be great for a veggie dip! Thanks for sharing. :)

Texas-Style Baked Beans

Reviewed: Jul. 24, 2014
This is my new go-to recipe for baked beans...AWESOMELY FANTASTIC!!!!!! I did halve the recipe, using 2 cans of pinto beans, drained and rinsed. These were super simple to make and the house smelled soooo good while these were baking. I always get baked beans from a local market that we always considered 'the best' baked beans, but these surpass those, and are waaaaay cheaper to make than those ones are to buy, so that's a bonus. I did measure all of the liquid ingredients and brown sugar, but I did eyeball the onions and red pepper, and I'm sure I used more of those than the recipe called for. If I could give these beans more stars, I would...these are wonderful~YUM, YUM, YUM!!!!! Thanks for sharing. :)

Cornbread Muffins with Cheddar Cheese

Reviewed: Jul. 23, 2014
We thought these were missing something...maybe more sugar? Sort of bland and we really couldn't detect the cheese, even though I topped them with extra cheese before baking. I also topped some w/ a slice of jalapeno from my garden, and that added a kick, which was nice. I don't know that I would be making these again, but Thanks for sharing the recipe. :)
