Eggplant con Queso
Rating: Unrated
June Puleo Wallace's rating

It was good but I changed it a bit. I steamed the eggplant until just tender using chicken broth, used Italian seasoning instead of poultry seasoning, garlic flavored croûtons instead of toasted bread & non fat cream instead of heavy cream. I was a little watery but very tasty all the same

This is an excellent recipe. I also made the substitutions of oatmeal & applesauce per reviews & added chopped walnuts and golden raisins. I made 6 jumbo muffins instead of 12 regular size and they cooked in 20 minutes so be careful not to overcook.

This is a really good recipe. I browned cubed chicken breasts with some onion and celery and added fresh mushroom at the very end of the browning time. I used fresh buttered bread crumbs instead of dried bread crumbs as well as the cream of chicken soup instead of cream of broccoli. Very yummy, can't wait to make it again.

I made a couple of changes just to make it lower in fat and a little healthier. I used a prepared whole wheat pizza crust instead of the tortillas. I also grilled and shredded a chicken breast and seasoned the cooked chicken using the same seasoning in the recipe. I served low fat sour cream and prepared salsa on the side. I used the cheeses as suggested because that is too important to the flavor to scimp on.

Wow- this is really good. I picked this recipe only because I had the ingredients on hand and I'm so glad I did. I made no substitutions and I don't really think it needs any. Served it with angel hair pasta and crusty bread. It was delicious.

I brought this recipe to my local tavern to "test drive" before I bought the ingredients. It was a huge hit! Everyone in the bar loved the alcohol combination and the owner even added it to his cocktail list. Thanks so much for the recipe!

My husband loved this dish but I thought it was a little bland. Lots of heat, but lacking in flavor. Perhaps my taste buds were burned out. I will make it again but next time I will use half of the juice and add some beef broth and seasonings.

This was delicious!. I do not know what hot chili paste is nor could I find it in the store so I added one tablespoon premium chili powder to one tablespoon tomato paste. That was the only change I made. This is a keeper and I will make it again and again and again.....

I like this recipe vs the traditional Margarita. I used 1/2 the confectioner's sugar and no salt but that is just a personal choice.

I've made this several times. I love the dressing. I recommend adding additional veggies to aid the appearance and the texture. I add some white onion, red and/or green bell pepper and celery to give it crunch.

Vodka Blueberry Liqueur
Rating: Unrated
June Puleo Wallace's rating

I don't know why people think this too strong. Hello! It's VODKA, not fruit punch. I made a huge quantity (1 1/2 gallons) for a buffet cookout. I provided fresh lemonade for those that wanted to "cut" the blueberry flavor and alcohol content. Of about 90 attendees there was not one person who didn't think the straight or mixed liquor was anything less than fabulous. I used less sugar but that was only because I didn't have enough. FYI, the longer it sits, the sweeter it gets.

My mother used to make these when I was a kid. After cutting them into sections she used to roll them with the back tines of a fork for a better look and more uniform cooking. I served them as a side with a simple lemon pepper butter drizzle and they were great. A good recipe and I wouldn't change a thing.
