Double Decker Tacos

Reviewed: May 19, 2011
What a great idea! In our family, we are split between hard and soft tacos so I always have both but it never occurred to me to layer them. I made a different version of the guacamole and used homemade taco seasoning, and made some other changes to suit our tastes, but the method is the same. These are filling, my hubby usually puts away 5-6 tacos, but after 3 of these he was content! Love that you get the nice crunch without the taco falling apart in your hands.

Beer Can Chicken

Reviewed: May 17, 2011
What a great way to grill chicken! I was lucky enough to get a deal on organic chickens, buy one, get one free! I followed the recipe exactly, they finished with a flavorful crispy skin and the meat was moist and juicy. My birds were 4 lbs. each and took about and hour and 45 min. over medium heat. I did have some problems with flare up even though my chickens were over a burner that was turned off. Next time I will lay a piece of foil underneath the chickens.

Bananas Foster Chimichangas

Reviewed: May 5, 2011
I tasted the sauce and felt it needed something so I added vanilla as suggested by another reviewer. I had 3 tortillas to use up and one large banana per tortilla was perfect. I did double the sauce so there would be plenty. Served with vanilla ice cream....heavenly!

Miss Betty's 24 Hour Lettuce Salad

Reviewed: May 2, 2011
Very pretty salad! The family loved it, in fact my 13y.o. decided she would skip the rest of the meal in favor of this salad! It does need salt and pepper and I was generous in adding these to the mayonnaise dressing. I see this making many appearances at summer barbecues!

Vietnamese Fresh Spring Rolls

Reviewed: Apr. 27, 2011
Great recipe! Once I got the hang of it, these rolls came together quickly. If you haven't worked with these delicate wrappers before...make sure to plan that the first four or five won't be very pretty! Instead of lettuce, I used some angel hair shredded cabbage and added shredded carrots for more color. I used bean sprouts in the filling as well. The dipping sauce was excellent.

moosegator approved mashed taters

Reviewed: Apr. 25, 2011
Oh My Goodness, is this ever good and he's not kidding about decadence! Make sure to use elephant garlic, it does have a very different aroma and flavor than regular garlic. Making this a day ahead is convenient, but also necessary to allow all these wonderful flavors to blend together. Thanks Gary for sharing this awesome recipe, everyone loved it at our Easter dinner.

Bird Rolls

Reviewed: Apr. 24, 2011
I love these sweet little rolls, they were the hit at the Easter table! I made these with my 13 y.o. daughter and we are very beginning bread bakers. To our surprise, they came out great. I added another 1/4 cup flour because the dough was so sticky but the rolls still came out tender and soft. We had to 'high five' each other when we tasted the first one!

Maria's Pepper Steak

Reviewed: Apr. 19, 2011
This is excellent, and a 5 star recipe after a couple of tweaks. The sauce is just the right balance of sweet and sour, but I thought it was missing something. I grated some fresh ginger into the sauce and it was perfect. I also agree with the reviewer that mentioned cooking the steak by itself in a little oil after the vegetables are removed from the pan and then setting the steak aside, instead of cooking it in the sauce. Add the sauce to the pan/wok after pouring out any fat and boil gently until thickened and then toss the meat and peppers back in and stir to coat. Very easy to throw this together and can be done quickly since no marinating is required.

Jan's Wheat-N-Honey Sandwich Bread

Reviewed: Apr. 17, 2011
I am so thrilled with the way this recipe turned out! This was my first attempt at homemade bread, and it was a learning experience for me. The bread has a lovely texture with just a touch of sweetness, perfect for sandwiches and it makes amazing toast as well! I don't have a bread machine, so I used my mixer to knead the dough, let it rise once and then divided the dough into the pans to let it rise again. I will make this again as I hope to develop my bread baking skills. Thanks WFDM? for sharing this recipe!

Delicious Ham and Potato Soup

Reviewed: Apr. 17, 2011
Now I see why everyone recommends this soup, it is terrific! My only issue was that it was very salty...a function of the ham I'm sure. But with ham, and the bouillon granules I am sure glad I didn't add the extra salt called for. Very quick and easy to throw together and the texture was smooth and creamy. We loved it!

Two Part Angel Cake

Reviewed: Apr. 17, 2011
Interesting cake. The white layer was wonderful, just the right texture, light and sweet. The yellow layer, well...we didn't care for it. It is spongy, bland and tasted like baked egg. The cake is pretty, but that yellow layer needs something to improve the taste. I don't think I'll be making this again.

Pretzel Dogs

Reviewed: Apr. 10, 2011
Perfect, just perfect! My daughter helped me make these and we had so much fun! With the exception of using my KA mixer to knead the dough (no bread machine) and then letting it rise for an hour, I followed the directions exactly. The pretzel dogs came out perfectly and were so good! We had a selection of mustards for dipping, but they are really good on their own, thanks WFDM?! Addendum...tonight we had some of these that I had frozen. I wrapped one loosely in a paper towel and microwaved at 70% power for a minute. They came out very fresh tasting.

Drunk Monkey

Reviewed: Apr. 3, 2011
This is such a pretty drink, but it is really sweet! I didn't mix it right away, just let the layers drift into each other.

Chunks of Glass

Reviewed: Mar. 29, 2011
I don't even like jello very much, but this stuff is good! I helped my 13 y.o. make this, and it looked like we had a science project going on! A couple of tips, if you have a springform pan, use it! Mine has a tube pan insert so it was perfect. Makes it effortless to unmold this. I noticed several reviews where people were wondering what to do with the butter and crumbs. Just butter the bottom of the pan and scatter the crumbs in, shake around and dump out the excess. Vanilla wafers worked great for us. Make sure the pineapple is in syrup, not juice, the thickness and sweetness is important. Also, I think using real whipping cream is a must, forget the coolwhip...too thick and artificial tasting. This makes such a pretty dessert, perfect for summer cook-outs!

Sunrise Pizza

Reviewed: Mar. 29, 2011
Very easy and delicious! If you are using a raw dough, I recommend pre-baking it for 5 minutes or so. If I hadn't done that I would have ended up with a soggy mess! I diced the veggies fairly small so they wouldn't be too crunchy. Instead of mozzarella I had an Italian 5-cheese blend that I think made a difference. We all enjoyed this, thanks Michelle!

'King Of Rock' Frozen Pudding Pops

Reviewed: Mar. 29, 2011
These are fabulous! I made them expecting my daughter to enjoy them, and she did...but my husband liked them even more! I had no problems with the peanut butter separating. I used Skippy and I used a heaping tablespoon because I knew we would want a stronger PB flavor. Maybe the separation occurs with the natural peanut butters but another thought is to only warm the PB just enough to blend into the pudding. This would be a fun recipe to experiment with different flavor combinations and I plan on trying sugar free pudding to see if that will work. Great fun, thanks John!

Danny's Salad

Reviewed: Mar. 27, 2011
This was OK, if it wasn't so sweet I might have enjoyed it more. It definitely needs some color, or it would look unappetizing. I left the peel on the apple and that helped.
