Deep Fried Dill Pickles

Reviewed: Jul. 9, 2014
I think the brand of pickles is what makes this recipe. I got super crispy hamburger dills and LOVED them. I order frickles (fried pickles) all the time here in Texas. They go great with home made ranch. They are super easy to make. My only suggestion is to double the flour/corn meal mixture as there was not enough to do the whole 32 oz jar. The liquid portion was perfectly portioned. I will be saving this recipe and making it again.

Avocado Cheesecake with Walnut Crust

Reviewed: Apr. 19, 2014
This cheesecake is anything but cheesecake. It is not sweet at all. Think of a bland avocado pudding. The consistency is like gelled avocado. It reminds me of those old cookbooks from the 50's and 60's that have nothing but gelatin recipes. The raspberry sauce is this only saving grace, and that is a serving suggestion not the recipe itself. My family wouldn't touch it. I followed the recipe exactly as written as well. I really wanted to like this, but I just couldn't.

Amazing Muffin Cups

Reviewed: Apr. 17, 2014
These were pretty yummy! If I had to change anything though, I'd add less cheese. They made them more chewy and less airy. If fact, I'd omit the cheese all together. These make great lunch pack items for the next day though. I had them for lunch 2 days in a row. I will make these again! Also, I must add that Johnsonville sausage is the best breakfast sausage I have ever tried. Perfect flavor and really juicy.

Alfredo Chicken

Reviewed: Apr. 3, 2014
I was looking for a quick and easy weeknight meal that was under 6 ingredients. This seemed simple enough, and it was delicious! I did use sliced Johnsonville Italian sausage instead of the chicken though, and I will say that added a lot to the flavor. I would have never thought to add Italian sausage to an alfredo. I'm so glad I did!! Just slice it up and saute until cooked before adding the sauce and seasonings. I also watered mine down a bit to make sure I got all the sauce out of the jar. This was delicious!! Super easy too! If the flavor is lacking for anyone, try adding a bit of onion powder, salt, and pepper to the dish. I don't think it needed it though. Thank you!!

Pork Carnitas with Cilantro Tomatillo Sauce

Reviewed: Mar. 4, 2014
I was skeptical at first because the carnitas I know are always deep fried. This to me sounded more like a guisado (stew), However, the dish did not disappoint! I was out of chipotle powder, so I substituted smoked paprika instead. However, I think the addition of chipotle would make this dish even more delicious. The "salsa" was lacking, so I added red pepper flakes, a little squirt of lime, some green onions, and garlic. However, the dish doesn't need the salsa as it can stand on its own. My husband begged me to keep this recipe in my favorites, so it looks like I'll be making this one again real soon.

Sweet and Spicy Salmon with Grapefruit Salsa

Reviewed: Mar. 3, 2014
I found the salmon ok, but the salsa really made the dish. First off, I soaked my salmon in buttermilk in the fridge for an hour to get rid of any fishy smell and taste. Then I patted it dry and prepared the rub as stated above. While it was cooking, I made my salsa. I did however make changes to the salsa. I forgot to pick up the jalapeños, so I substituted red pepper flakes instead. I also added a little salt and garlic powder. It came out amazing. I was surprised too, seeing how I am not the biggest fan of grapefruit. It wasn't tart or sour at all. After my salmon was done, I took it out of the oven and tasted it as is. I found it kind of bland, but when I added the salsa the flavor was amazing. I'm giving this 4 stars, because without the salsa the fish is ok, but you really need the salsa to complete the dish.

Aunt Teen's Creamy Chocolate Fudge

Reviewed: Jan. 1, 2014
Yummy and delicious fudge! I ended up making quite a few batches of this to give away as Christmas presents. I paired mine with the saltine toffee cookies also found on this site. I followed the recipe to the T. No complaints at all! In fact I got rave reviews!

Saltine Toffee Cookies

Reviewed: Jan. 1, 2014
These were great! I ended up making a whole bunch of them to give out as gifts. I ended up putting them in a tin with some homemade fudge as well (recipe also in here on Allrecipes). This definitely will be a go to for gifts for the holidays! Yum!

Ruth's Grandma's Pie Crust

Reviewed: Nov. 27, 2013
Perfect crust! Easy to roll out and has a great flavor! I quartered the recipe because I only needed to make one pie, and it still worked out great! I used my left over crust after trimming it to make stuffed mini "pies."

Mike's BBQ Chili and Honey Lamb Marinade

Reviewed: Nov. 10, 2013
OMG.... that pretty much sums up this dish. I was given over 20 lbs of lamb (chops, ground, leg of lamb, rack of lamb, etc.), and I had never cooked it before. I was looking for something simple to put on the grill and came across this recipe. I mixed all the ingredients together, and then placed it along with the chops in a large ziplock bag. I left it in the fridge for 4 hours and then threw it on the grill. I will admit I forgot the lemon zest, but this had to be one of the most delicious things I have ever tasted in my life. I had to pull the bones away from my husband, because he was gnawing on them. YUM.

Chiliville Chili

Reviewed: Oct. 13, 2013
Delicious! I have never made chili before with Italian sausage (I usually just use pork), so this was a first for me. It came out great! Really the only thing different I did was add a little smoked paprika and chipotle seasoning, and I omitted the celery. We just finished a big bowl over fritos and smothered in Italian blend cheese. Yum! I really believe the sweetness of the sausage made the dish. I will be making this again.

Grandmother's Buttermilk Cornbread

Reviewed: Aug. 19, 2013
Let me first start by saying that I always change recipes to suit my taste, but this recipe is so delicious that I didn't need to change a thing. I made the recipe exactly as is, and all I can say is yummy!! This has become a staple in our household, and I make it all the time. My family practically begs for it. If you do not have buttermilk, you can make your own by adding 1 tbsp of white vinegar to a cup of milk. Then you stir it real good, and then let it set for 5 minutes, but not much longer (or it will curdle).

Cumin-Rubbed Steaks with Avocado Salsa Verde

Reviewed: Aug. 17, 2013
I was extremely skeptical that this would turn out good with just cumin, so I mixed in a little garlic and onion powder. Still, wow, was I wrong though! The cumin gave it such a great flavor. I rubbed the steaks and browned them in my cast iron skillet, then I finished them off in my oven. I did however let them overcook, but that in no way affected the flavor. That was just my fault so they were a little chewy. The avocado was delicious with it as well. I also made fried okra, buttermilk cornbread, and steamed veggies to go with it. Yummy!! Also, I think this would be better on the grill, not inside.

Ropa Vieja (Cuban Meat Stew)

Reviewed: Aug. 12, 2013
This was delicious. My husband kept saying over and over again how this was one of the most delicious things he has ever tasted. That's huge coming from that man. I omitted the olives, but only because my family wouldn't have ate it if I did add them. However, I would have loved them in this dish. I added a lot more garlic then it called for and some more of the Adobo seasoning on the finished product. It was good before, but just a slight bland without a little more seasoning for my taste. The cooking time is perfect too. I used skirt steak that I sliced into strips. I let it simmer on low heat for 1.5 hours and the meat melted in your mouth. I served this on white rice and with some corn on the side. Don't let the list of ingredients scare you. It's not a hard dish to make at all! Plus I found all my Goya products at my local Krogers in the Hispanic aisle (although if you can find or make similar, you can substitute, but I LOVE Goya, so I don't).

Spy Thai Beef

Reviewed: Aug. 11, 2013
This recipe is yummy twist on Thai peanut chicken. I opted out of the wontons, and instead doubled the sauce and mixed it with angel hair pasta. I also omitted the red pepper flakes because our 14 month old would not be able to eat it if I added them. I wish I would have had cilantro on hand, but instead I added some chopped spicy basil leaves from my herb garden. Next time I'll sprinkle some more lime juice on top and add some fresh chopped cilantro. Yum! Definitely going to make this again.

Sweet and Sour Chicken II

Reviewed: Aug. 7, 2013
DELICIOUS is all I can say. My family loved it. The only thing different I did was add some garlic and onion powder. I do think it needed that, as it gave it more flavor. My family begged me to make it again soon, so I guess this will become a regular staple in our house!

Cheesy Chicken and Yellow Rice

Reviewed: Aug. 7, 2013
I was pleasantly surprised with this recipe. It seemed like more of an American version of a Mexican dish, so I felt my family would try it first without complaining. It was delicious. I think the only thing I would do different next time will be to omit the tomatoes. It was all I tasted with the rice, and I felt it took away from the dish. Also, keep the Adobo seasoning. It really made the dish tasty and gave it a wonderful flavor. I also kept the cheese on the side, and I am glad that I did. My daughter who is obsessed with cheese wanted it, but the rest of us did not like it cheesy. Finally, my last complaint is that it doesn't make very much. For a family of 5, there were no leftovers at all. Usually we have a least a plate full for my husband to take to work in the morning. However, I guess this isn't too big of a problem seeing how it was very well received. I will be making this again with the changes. Also, that box of yellow rice is a hit! I will be buying more Goya products in the near future.

Black Beans and Rice

Reviewed: Aug. 4, 2013
I added extra garlic to mine. I also lightly rinsed my beans and added salted chicken broth instead of the wine. For my rice, I used Goya yellow rice. It was a simple meal and great addition to our Mexican night at home.

Vanilla Ice Cream V

Reviewed: Jul. 30, 2013
It was pretty good. I followed others advice and heated up the cream the night before to dissolve the sugar. It went great with home made apple pie.

Big Al's K.C. Bar-B-Q Sauce

Reviewed: Jun. 30, 2013
This sauce is absolutely delicious. I used it for some pork ribs I was preparing, and it just completed the dish. I think I just cried a little. Yes it is that good....
