Simply Classic Sauza®-Rita

Reviewed: Apr. 30, 2013
Definitely don't skimp on the lime juice or simple syrup. The two flavors work well together! Also, as another reviewer wrote, the lime pulp makes this extra yummy! To make the simple syrup, just combine 12 oz of water with 12 oz of sugar and boil until the sugar has dissolved. I always allow it to cool before adding to the drink.

Night Lemon Sauza®-Rita

Reviewed: Apr. 30, 2013
I used Sauza Blue Tequila. This was nice! As the recipe states, this is a good drink for a warm night. Can't wait to make this again in the summer!

Classic Sauza® Gold Margarita

I used Sauza Blue Tequila. This was delicious and was the favorite of the night! We squeezed a small amount of orange juice into it. Very good!

Spicy Roasted Edamame

Reviewed: Apr. 18, 2013
These were good. I increased the temp to 400 degrees and roasted them for approximately 20 minutes on the bottom rack. I also mixed some grated parmesan cheese with the herbs.

German Apple Pancake

Reviewed: Apr. 18, 2013
My husband calls this "Apple Pie Pancake." We both liked this a lot! I followed another reviewers advice and sautéed the sliced apples, sugar, butter, cinnamon & nutmeg, then poured the mixture into a 9" glass pie dish. Then I poured the pancake mixture on top and baked as noted. I used 2 apples, and next time, I will halve the butter in the pan. And yes, there will be a next time!

Baked Doughnuts

Reviewed: Apr. 11, 2013
These were really good. Not at all like a fried doughnut, but still tasty! Wish I had a donut baking pan, because mine were odd shaped and pooled together. Once I had started this recipe, I realized I was missing an egg, so I used half of a banana (mashed) that was mixed with 1/2 a tsp of baking powder (thanks to AR's subs list). This enhanced the flavor of the doughnuts too! For a chocolate glaze, I used another reviewers advice and heated/mixed 1/4 cup milk, 1-2 tsp Vanilla, 3T of cocoa powder, & 2 cups confectionary sugar. Then, I drizzled over the doughnuts. The chocolatey sweetness of the glaze complimented the spiced doughnut well, since the doughnut is not too sweet.

Cheddar Bratzenkraut

Reviewed: Apr. 9, 2013
We really enjoyed this recipe! If you like sauerkraut and mustard flavoring, then you will like this. Next time, I may decrease the sauerkraut liquid a little, so that the flavor isn't so strong. But, that change certainly isn't necessary. It is very good!

Bacon Cheddar Spread

Reviewed: Apr. 4, 2013
Easy appetizer and very delicious. Once my guests actually tried it (because it doesn't look like anything special) they all devoured it. It was gone within a few minutes. I made a few small changes to this: 1) half a cup of light ranch dressing and half a cup of non-fat sour cream; 2) added diced onions instead of grated (which gave it a better, texture); 3) threw in garlic & onion powder, pepper, and sea salt; & 4) used 2-3 extra slices of bacon. I chilled this overnight and served the next evening w/ celery & cucumber slices. I will definitely use this again!

J.P.'s Big Daddy Biscuits

Reviewed: Mar. 25, 2013
These are really good! I followed the advice of others including: not overmixing the dough, only using as much milk as I need, butter should be cold, and brushed w/ melted butter before baking. Also, I used butter instead of shortening.

Mom's Casserole

Reviewed: Mar. 22, 2013
This recipe is delicious as long as you double the sauce and add the cream cheese mixture to the noodles before layering. I used Johnsonville mild Italian sausages (casings removed) instead of beef which gave it a nice flavor and only used half an onion. This is not the shortest dinner, but it is very good!

Johnsonville Easy Sausage Pizza

Reviewed: Mar. 20, 2013
Another superb pizza by Johnsonville! I used homemade pizza dough for the crust, used Johnsonville's hot Italian links, added minced garlic to the sausage (which I cooked before adding to the dough...made it less greasy!) and, as always, brushed the outside of the crust with extra virgin olive oil mixed with dried herbs (basil, oregano, parsley, & onion powder). I would also like to pass on a little tip on removing sausage casings: cut 3/4 of the way down lengthwise into the link and pull the casing off. Soooo good!

Quattro Formaggi Pizza

Reviewed: Mar. 20, 2013
This recipe was delicious and with a small edit to the directions, it would be five stars for sure! The cheeses work well together and the sausage is very flavorful (especially Johnsonville's hot Italian links which I used). The only trouble I had was that the recipe doesn't mention what to do with the 2T of oil. This should be added in when stirring the yeast mixture into the flour mixture. If not, you will probably have a dry crust. This is the only necessary change to the recipe. Also, a nice addition is to brush the outside of your crust with extra virgin olive oil mixed with dried herbs (basil, oregano, parsley, & onion powder) and add minced garlic to the sausage when cooking for extra flavor. And I would just like to pass on a little tip on removing sausage casings: cut 3/4 of the way down lengthwise into the link and pull the casing off. Overall, my family and I really enjoyed this, and I cannot wait to make it again! Thanks, Johnsonville!

Boiled Water

Reviewed: Mar. 20, 2013
I was unimpressed by this recipe. The submitter said it could be used in gourmet recipes, so I took his advice and used it in ramen for my dinner guests. Had to toss it all in the garbage and order out from a local restaurant. Not only was it a BIG waste of ingredients, but I now have to wash all those china bowls for nothing. I will not be making this again!

Grandma's Very Easy Pie Crust

Reviewed: Mar. 7, 2013
I halved the recipe, b/c I wanted to use a crumb topping. The crust tasted fine, but I had to roll it extremely thin for it to cover my 9" glass pie plate. I prebaked this for 7 minutes on 425 before adding my fruit filling.

Old-Fashioned Rice Pudding II

Reviewed: Feb. 22, 2013
The only changes I made were to mix in some cinnamon and to bake for 1hr and 50 min. I probably could have kept it in the oven a tad longer. In the future, I would add some vanilla to the milk for extra flavor. I, however, enjoyed the taste and loved the consistency.

Swedish Pickled Cucumbers

Reviewed: Feb. 22, 2013
Simple and good! I sprinkled paprika on top for a bit of color. I could see these having a few seasonings like onion powder or a dash of cayenne pepper.

Cinnamon Apple Healthy Smoothie

Reviewed: Feb. 21, 2013
This tastes good - can't taste the spinach at all. Just apples and cinnamon. I was expecting a smoother consistency, but it ended up being a mix between chunky and liquidy. I think this is because there is no banana, yogurt, or peanut butter to make it smooth. So, 5 stars for taste. Of course smoothies are versatile, so you can always add protein powder for extra benefits.

Quick and Easy Pizza Crust

Reviewed: Feb. 11, 2013
Here's a quick pizza dough for those days when you don't have a lot of time after work. I made this with the BBQ Pulled Pork Pizza recipe on this site, and the combination was superb! Sometimes, when I eat pizza, I eat the crust extra fast, because it is not good, but this crust is great! After reading reviews, I suggest adding basil, oregano, parsley, & onion powder to the olive oil before adding to the dough. Also, let the dough rise in a warm dark place for a 1/2 hr (if you have the time), and spread a mix of olive oil and garlic powder along the outer crust for extra flavor. Also, I used a pizza stone, which always helps pizza cook evenly.

BBQ Pulled Pork Pizza

Reviewed: Feb. 11, 2013
We love, love, love this recipe! In fact, my husband just had to share a picture on Twitter of the slices I gave him, because he was very excited about how this tasted. I used the "Quick and Easy Pizza Crust" recipe from this site (with lots of extra herbs in the dough). I made a few small changes to the toppings that put this beyond 5 stars: 1) Instead of seasoning the BBQ sauce with chipotle chili powder, I spread the sauce and then lightly sprinkled some cayenne pepper and some garlic powder on top. 2) After the sauce and seasonings, I put an even layer of grated parmesan cheese on top. 3) Then, I put an extra 2T of BBQ sauce on top of the pulled pork layer, b/c I knew it would dry out a bit in the oven. (Don't skip this extra step - it's important!) 4) Sprinkled shredded cheddar on top (b/c pizza doesn't seem right without cheese). 5) Finally, I brushed the outer crust with a mixture of olive oil & garlic powder. I can't wait to make this recipe again!
