Layered Chicken and Black Bean Enchilada Casserole

Reviewed: Dec. 29, 2012
I have made this recipe 3 times now. Each time it has been a real hit with my family. I have 3 'adult' kids==2 college agers plus 1 high schooler---each with very different tastes, but this recipe has been well received by all 3,plus my husband and some visiting family. Leftovers warm up well, too, a real plus. I make it pretty much as directed, but added whole kernel corn the last batch and really loved that addition. I also saute some onions and garlic with the chicken at the beginning. I have used both corn and flour tortillas. There is a difference, to be sure, but we like both versions. I do recommend boiling and shredding the chicken before anything else is done. I think the 'dryness' of the previously cooked and shredded chicken will help those who have found the tortillas to be too soft.

Cajun Dirty Rice

Reviewed: Aug. 16, 2012
I have made this several times now for different occasions. My whole family loves it, which is no small thing! It seems to reheat well if there are leftovers---I say "seems" because my children love it so much they fight over the leftovers and I have never actually had a chance to reheat and eat any for myself. Like other reviewers, I find that doubling the rice works very well for our taste. I also add sauted garlic and onions to the meat. I have used pork sausage(in addtion to the beef) but have found using mild Italian sausage to be the best combo for us. Some reviewers have critized that this is not truly "Dirty Rice"---maybe not, but it doesn't change the fact that it makes for some very good eating!

This recipe is liked by all 5 family members. My vegatarian son likes that there is no meat. My carnivore son doesn't feel deprived. My husband and daugther and I simply loved it.

Bow Ties with Sausage, Tomatoes and Cream

Reviewed: Aug. 16, 2012
I have made this several times now to good reviews by my family. I like that it is a quicker meal to prepare that seems like a 'slave for hours' recipe when you eat!

Banana Cake VI

Reviewed: Jan. 4, 2012
I have made this cake at least 6 times now and it gets rave reviews. I recently made it for a work potluck and once again it was given a huge thumbs up. My Bunco mates always say it is the Bomb. For those who think putting the cake into the freezer is odd, it might comfort them to know that putting cake into the freezer is a long established tip of decorative cake bakers. Frozen cakes are easier to frost, but also, as we see here, give the cake a more moist texture. A product I have used in making this cake is King Arthur Flour's Banana Oil from their vanilla and flavorings selections. It adds to the flavor subtly. I use a teaspoon in addition to the vanilla in both the cake itself and the frosting. For braver souls still, you might also add their fiori di sicilia flavoring, but go sparingly here (no more than a 1/4 teaspoon)as this flavoring is very strong.

Hungarian Goulash I

Reviewed: Sep. 29, 2011
I remember my mom making goulash when I was a child. The recipe strongly echoes the one she made. I like the slightly twangy contrast between sweet and spice. I added wine as recommended by another reviewer.

Rice with Black Beans

Reviewed: Nov. 20, 2009
Made this tonight when looking for something quick and without needing to defrost a meat. I used quick rice, cooked in broth, added to the bean/tomato mix at just before serving. I added cumin, a dash hot sauce, lime juice and chopped garlic to the bean/tomato mixture. By adding the rice last minute, I was able to cook the bean mixture longer. While it was cooking I prepared Chi Chi's Fiesta Cornbread mix, which takes around 45 minutes. The sweet, moist bread made an excellent counterpoint to the spiciness of he beans. It is also very easy to prepare by simply following the directions on the package. All family members eating it tonight said to hang onto the recipe in my box for future use, even my 2 picky teenage boys!

Spaghetti Sauce II

Reviewed: Aug. 26, 2009
I have made my own sauce for years, but decided to try this one day on a whim. My family really enjoyed it and so did I. The wine gives it a rich taste and aroma, but I think the most important thing is the time element. You definitely need the 3 hours + cooking time for the sauce to cook down and the flavors to meld. I used ground beef, rather than the Italian sausage because I had it on had and it worked well. I also upped the wine to a half cup.

Grandma Johnson's Scones

Reviewed: Aug. 26, 2009
I have made these scones twice now, each time with the addition of chocoate chips. All were eaten within 24 hours--my kids couldn't get enough. I am soon going to try the blackberry version another reviewer suggested. I will reinforce what another reviewer mentioned, don't over handle the dough. Knead as little as possible. To avoid more mixing, I placed my chocolate chips on top of the rolled out dough and pressed them into the dough with a rolling pin. After cutting them with a cookie cutter, you have plenty of chocolate per bite and placing them on top just before cutting cuts down on handling the dough.

Bob's Awesome Lasagna

Reviewed: Jul. 2, 2009
I have used Bob's recipe at least a dozen times now. Like another reviewer, I usually add spinach, which my family likes (in lasagna anyway) and I double the amount of sauce. As with any recipe of this type, I tend to add extra spices to suit our tastes, such as garlic, extra organo, etc. I have used pork sausage as a meat type along with beef, as well. My family always looks forward to this dish.

Sangria! Sangria!

Reviewed: Jul. 2, 2009
I made this for my Bunco group and the ladies were tipping up the punch bowl I served it in to get the last drop. Several of the ladies attending swore upon entering the house they weren't big Sangria fans---this recipe made several converts!

Raspberry Oat Bars

Reviewed: Jul. 2, 2009
L was looking for something sweet that wasn't chocolate based. My husband loves fruit based sweets and this was no exception. I love the fact that they taste even better the second day---assuming they stay around that long. Like another reviewer, I also added white chocolate chips---excellent addition!
