Paul Newman Crab Salad

Reviewed: Jun. 29, 2015
I was looking for a non-mayo based pasta salad to bring to a 4th of July celebration, preferably one that contained imitation crabmeat (because I had some on hand and wanted to use it). I did an ingredient search for imitation crabmeat, with "salad" as the dish type, and this one was in the search results. I made it exactly as directed, but brought the leftover dressing along, in case people wanted to drizzle a bit more over theirs. It was well received by everyone. Thanks for sharing the recipe!

Slow-Cooker Posole

Reviewed: Jun. 25, 2015
Crazy good! I still can't believe how well this turned out . . . we absolutely loved it! I cut the recipe in half (as there was just 4 of us), and made a couple of adjustments based on what I had on hand. My can of enchilada sauce was only 10 ounces, so I opened the fridge to see what I could find to compensate for the 4.5 ounces . . . an open jar of Herdez salsa verde - yup, that'll work! I only had a 29 ounce can of hominy - so I added about half of it, filled the crockpot with the water, and then realized that the other half of the hominy would be fine, so I dumped it all in. I used a Reynold's liner to line my 4 qt. West Bend slow cooker, which made clean up a breeze. The temperature on my slow cooker goes from 1 to 5, 5 being the highest, and I cooked it on 3, so it wouldn't dry up all of the liquid. I did end up adding about another cup of water and 1 tsp. of chicken bouillon (skipping the salt) before serving, at hubs request (he likes more liquid). It was perfect! We will be making this often.

Sweet & Spicy Asian Style BBQ Back Ribs

Reviewed: Jun. 16, 2015
So juicy and delicious! My entire family thoroughly enjoyed these ribs. The sweet and spicy Asian flavors were a nice change from the traditional BBQ ribs. I couldn't find the tamarind juice, so I used apple juice instead. Rather than cook these for 2-3 hours on the grill, I baked these in a 250 degree oven on a baking sheet with a cooling rack to raise the ribs up a bit, added some apple juice to the baking sheet and covered the baking sheet really well with aluminum foil. This keeps the ribs nice and moist. Then I finished them on the grill, basting them with the glaze. They were fantastic, and I will make these again!

Crusty Herb Potato Wedges

Reviewed: Jun. 11, 2015
These are delicious! We love trying different seasonings with potato wedges, but this was our first time using herbes de Provence. These went great with our chicken wings for dinner tonight. Thanks Chef John!

Simple Scones

Reviewed: Jun. 11, 2015
Loved these! I made them in my food processor, and then added blueberries instead of raisins. I finished them with a drizzle of powdered sugar glaze. Yummy!

Huli Huli Pineapple Chicken

Reviewed: Jun. 9, 2015
I loved this! I saved some of the marinade to use with chicken kabobs at a later date. Hubs thought it was good, but felt it needed a kick (he says that about everything though). I served this with Caesar Salad Supreme (also from the site) and grilled bread, and it made a delicious summer meal. Thanks Mark, for sharing your recipe!

Mint Citrus Water

Reviewed: Jun. 9, 2015
Very refreshing on a hot day! I find these infused waters that have citrus in them to be slightly on the bitter side, which we don't mind at all. My husband LOVED this, and asked me to keep a pitcher of this in the fridge all summer.

Yummy Grilled Pineapple

Reviewed: Jun. 8, 2015
Oh my word . . . this was delicious! I'm a huge Nutella fan, and loved how the milk thinned it out to drizzle consistency. I did add a little dollop of whipped cream, just to make it pretty! Yummy is right!

Asian Noodle Bowl

Reviewed: May 30, 2015
It was a good way to use up some Thai peanut sauce that I had made, but not great enough to say that I'd make it again.

Stuffed Fingerling Potatoes

Reviewed: May 30, 2015
These were a nice little appetizer! Kind of like a loaded twiced baked potato bite without the twice bake! I did cut the recipe in half, to use up some fingerling potatoes that we had boiled the night before for dinner. I also used just a few tablespoons of "real bacon" pieces (you know, the kind you can buy already cooked in pieces to use to top a salad). I think the amount of bacon in the recipe would be way too much for the amount of potatoes, personally. I would also add that these are best served to almost room temperature.

Lentil Salad with Chimichurri Sauce

Reviewed: May 30, 2015
I'm surprised . . . I'm not a big fan of lentils (my Italian hubby is though), and I really liked this! I scaled this back to 1 serving, as I had exactly 2 oz. of lentils to use up. I also used Argentinean Chimichurri (recipe also on this site) that I had left over from a cookout last weekend. I took the submitter's advice and served this with sliced cucumbers and grilled naan (as I didn't have any whole wheat pita bread). It made for a nice, healthy lunch!

The Best Thai Curry-Peanut Sauce

Reviewed: May 26, 2015
I scaled this down to 10 servings (1 can coconut milk), and followed the recipe precisely, and it was delicious! We had 2 families over for a Memorial Weekend cookout, and we served grilled shrimp, chicken & skirt steak with this sauce, as well as Argentinean Chimichurri (also from the site), and everyone loved it! I can't wait to try it on noodles!

Argentinean Chimichurri

Reviewed: May 25, 2015
My first time making and eating chimichurri, and it won't be my last! We made this to serve with grilled skirt steak and chicken breasts, and it was fantastic! I did add just a tad bit of crushed red pepper at hubs request. Delicious recipe, and will make this one again. Thanks for sharing!

Chicken Scallopini

Reviewed: May 22, 2015
Delicious! I didn't have the demi-glaze on hand, so I used some left over homemade chicken broth that I kicked up a notch with some chicken bouillon granules. Hubs said this one is a "do again". Served this over angel hair pasta . . . buonissimo!

Frozen Melon Margaritas

Reviewed: May 18, 2015
We made these at least 3 times in the past couple of weeks! So easy to whip together and I love the addition of the melon schnapps.

Coconut and Lime Grilled Kale

Reviewed: May 4, 2015
These are tasty, and would go great with a nice cold beer. To be honest, I couldn't really taste the coconut milk, but the spices and lime do come through nicely.

Diabetic-Friendly Apple Muffins

Reviewed: May 1, 2015
I prefer a sweeter muffin, personally. No fault of the recipe, just my opinion. I did make this exactly as directed.

Steak Dry Rub

Reviewed: Apr. 28, 2015
I made a half a recipe, because I wasn't sure how we were going to like it. We liked it! We used it on rib eyes tonight, that hubs grilled to a perfect medium rare. I think this would be really good on chicken or ribs too.
