Slow Cooker Buffalo Chicken Sandwiches

Reviewed: Sep. 16, 2012
I liked the texture of the chicken but honestly, this was so salty that we had a hard time eating it. I'm guessing that it was the brand of buffalo wing sauce that I chose. I really wanted to like this dish as so many others do, so I will make this again using a different wing sauce (with a lower sodium count).

Black Beans, Corn, and Yellow Rice

Reviewed: Sep. 16, 2012
Made as is, it's okay but pretty bland. I kept tasting it and tweaking and finally got it to where the family enjoyed it. Lots more lime juice, another tsp. of cumin, some chopped fresh tomato and sliced green onions and chopped cilantro did the trick. It's a good recipe to build on.

Zesty Zucchini and Squash

Reviewed: Sep. 9, 2012
I really thought this would end up tasting like it was missing something...not so! Simple, quick and delicious. I used fresh garlic cloves that I crushed and sauteed with the squash and onion before adding the Rotel. We all enjoyed this recipe.

Easy Weeknight Chicken Parmesan

Reviewed: Sep. 9, 2012
This is pretty good, I made it exactly as directed but used 4 half chicken breasts. There was plenty of sauce for the spaghetti. The family like it a lot. I don't ordinarily make things using processed 'starters' but I might keep a can of this around for a quick dinner, just in case.

Mexican Brownies

Reviewed: Sep. 8, 2012
We loved these, the perfect brownie texture for us! I used ancho chili powder because that is all I had, and it came out tasting great! I'm taking an enchilada dinner to a friend who is recovering from surgery and will be bringing these for dessert. I just know her family will love these brownies!

Indonesian Satay

Reviewed: Aug. 25, 2012
This is so good, the flavors are amazing. I didn't cube my chicken, I sliced each breast into thick strips and marinated for a few hours. The only change I made was to use more PB as the sauce was too thin for our tastes. I just stirred in extra PB and let it melt in the warm sauce until it was the way we like, maybe another3/4 cup. My husband could not get enough of this! Served this over basmati rice with green onions and with sesame green beans. I'll be making this one again soon!

The Labor Day Burger

Reviewed: Aug. 13, 2012
Well, the hubby went nuts over this burger...even enjoying the avocado! FYI, there are three of us and I was able to get 3 burgers out of a pound of beef and they were huge! I can't imagine how large the burgers would be for 2, a half pound a piece! Don't skip the freezing step, we had no problems with the burgers falling apart or flaring up. Good recipe, thanks!

Elvis Pancakes

Reviewed: Aug. 12, 2012
These were okay, we all found them way too sweet. Also, the batter is very thick and the first batch I had to toss because the inside never cooked up. I thinned the batter with more milk and the rest cooked up fine. If I make these again, I will leave out the brown sugar. Also, the peanut butter is very strong even though there's only 1/4 cup. I love PB, but I think I would cut back just a little. If this was intended as a dessert pancake, with a little vanilla ice cream I'd give it 5 stars for sure!

Refrigerator Lemon Margarita Pie

Reviewed: Aug. 12, 2012
This pie is absolutely delicious! I love the flavor of the fresh lemon and tequila, and it was a hit with the family. I'm not sure what I did wrong, but the pie just wouldn't set up enough. After three hours in the fridge, I cut a slice and it just kind of spread out on the plate. No problem...I put it in the freezer for a few hours and it firmed up nicely. I'll be making this one again, as a freezer pie.

Tomato and Feta Salad

Reviewed: Aug. 12, 2012
This is really good! I have an abundance of sweet yellow cherry tomatoes to use up, and I'm glad I found this recipe. The only thing different I did was to add a bit more olive oil to the dressing. After I whisked it up, it was just a bit too tangy. I probably added another teaspoon or two until it was just right for me.

Lower Fat Amish Macaroni Salad

Reviewed: Aug. 12, 2012
We loved this macaroni salad, but I did use slightly less sugar (3 tbsp) than called for and added a bit of onion into the mix. I mistakenly boiled a full 16oz. box of macaroni but there was plenty of dressing for the full amount. It is very tasty Lorilynn, thanks for sharing!

Springtime Ham and Spinach Salad

Reviewed: Aug. 11, 2012
Very good salad, but next time I think I'll use a mix of spinach and romaine and maybe add some toasted slivered almonds. I would also be a bit more generous with the mustard when preparing the dressing. Use a fresh peach if you have one, in spite of all the ingredients, the flavor of that ripe peach was a delight. All in all, we enjoyed this salad.

Drunken Grapefruit Salad

Reviewed: Aug. 11, 2012
Terry's right, you won't believe how good this is! Obviously, you have to be a grapefruit lover to enjoy this, and that I am! I used the sectioned mixed grapefruit that was recommended and it took less than 5 minutes to put this together. If you do the math, 3 oz. gin per 8 serving dishes comes out to a generous 2 tsp., not one. You could get away with buying one mini-bottle of gin for this recipe or add the extra to each salad, that's what I did and it wasn't strong at all. Luckily for me, I'm the only one in the house who appreciates grapefruit so this salad was all mine!

Tuscan Style Meat Sauce (Ragu Toscano)

Reviewed: Aug. 6, 2012
In the end, we liked this sauce but it needed a little help. Because of the confusion in the ingredients I had to make some changes. The ingredients call for red wine vinegar, but the directions say to add the red wine. Hmm, I chose to go with the vinegar but used half the amount. I was worried about the acidity of the tomatoes and the vinegar so I added two large bay leaves at the start of the simmering time. After an hour of simmering, I tasted and the sauce needed a boost so I added 2 cloves of minced garlic. With these few changes, it was an excellent sauce. I do wonder what the submitter intended..vinegar or wine?

Green Bean Bundles I

Reviewed: Aug. 6, 2012
We have an overload of green beans from the garden and I was browsing recipes to use them up. This one caught my attention and honestly, I'm surprised at how good they are! Because my beans were fresh, I steamed them to crisp tender and wrapped with pre-cooked bacon. This way, it only took about 10 minutes in the oven for the bacon to crisp and the dressing to get a bit bubbly. We all enjoyed them, especially my daughter who like the sweetness that came from the French dressing. I suspect that cooking canned beans @375 for 30 minutes would make them pretty mushy. Try this with fresh green beans!

Authentic Pizza Margherita

Reviewed: Aug. 5, 2012
Delicious and fresh! I did not use pizza sauce, instead I used sliced homegrown tomatoes that I lightly salted and let drain in a strainer to get the excess liquid out. The dough was super easy to make and I used whole wheat flour to replace a cup of AP flour. So simple.

Creole Crab and Corn Chowder

Reviewed: Aug. 3, 2012
If I had made the recipe as is, I would have given it 3 stars at the most, because with that amount of jalapeno in it, I think it would have been inedible. Just to clarify, I like it hot, I'm no wimp. I add extra hot sauce to almost everything and ask for extra spicy at Thai restaurants. But this would be over the top hot and wouldn't allow for enjoying the flavor of that very expensive crabmeat. Luckily I watched Chef John's video so I made some changes based on what he mentioned. For the liquid, I used 8oz. clam juice and 1 1/2 cup water. I chopped a half cup of green bell pepper then one large jalapeno (2 Tbsp). Half&Half was in the fridge so I used that. With those changes, it was outstanding with a rich broth, the flavor of the crab came shining through and it was still plenty Creole-spicy! This was a wonderful way to use up the leftover crabs...after picking, I had close to a pound and you bet, I put it all in!

BLT

Reviewed: Aug. 3, 2012
I made BLT's last night for dinner, a family favorite! I have a young teenager here that just might want to make a BLT and if I wasn't home to answer questions she'd come right to AR to look it up.

Mimi's Zucchini Pie

Reviewed: Jul. 5, 2012
Very simple and fresh, I did toss the squash and onion with some basil before folding it into the batter. My teenage daughter sighed and said, 'I just love this stuff'! The baking time was right on, perfectly tender squash. I'll make this again for certain.
