First off, this recipe is very easy and quick to make. Second, it is very good. It was the first time I made chili, and I was excited with the little amount of prep time involved and the rave reviews it got. We used super hot salsa to give it some kick and topped it with cheddar cheese.
This was the best artichoke dip I have ever made. I did everything the same - except I used marinated artichoke hearts. I halved the recipe for four of us and we had it on baguettes. As soon as I saw that the main ingrediant wasn't mayonnaise, I was sure it would be great (I hate the really greasy types of artichoke dip). This was not greasy in the slightest.
It was very easy to prepare and looked awesome, but I didn't care for beef very much at room temperature. However, my guests seemed to like it as most of it was gone at the end of the night. What was left, I heated up in the microwave and loved it! Next time, I will either serve it warm or leave the beef off, but it is definitely staying in my recipe box.
I thought this was an excellent recipe. I love the addition of the eggs, it made it very different. I added more mayo (until it was creamy) and some golden raisins. I will defintely be making this again. P.S. I recently made this again and put the salad in tiny phyllo cups and served as an appetizer. Went over very, very well.
The guests at our party really liked these - we did them in the shape of the first letter of the two guests of honor. I thought that the cheese sauce that went along with the pretzels was EXCELLENT and bought frozen pretzels to eat with the leftover sauce.
I really liked this recipe. I used dill mustard in place of the dried dill and regular mustard. I didn't have any onions, so I put in some sweet pickle relish. I won't be doing that again! But I certainly plan to make it again (with the dill mustard) and have an onion on hand.
I made these for my brother's Hawaiian birthday party and they were a total hit. We used bigger shrimp, and based on previous reviews made the batter a tad thicker (maybe a little too thick, but the original recipe's batter is too thin). I should have chopped up the coconut in a food processor as someone else mentioned, it would have made it easier to assemble. All in all, they are a pain to make but as you see them fly off the plate and people raving about them, the work is all worthwhile. Just make sure that everything else you are making is easy to prepare so you have time to do these.
This was an excellent tasting pie. My sister, who is sensitive to alcohol in food, noticed the rum right away but I felt it was the perfect amount. It was easy to make and tasted delicious.
These meatballs were excellent! I followed the directions exactly, except I threw in about a bulb of chopped up garlic. Put it all together the night before in a crock pot and plugged it in the next day. Everyone loved having something different than the usual chili sauce meatballs.
I used rye bread and also melted the butter in the microwave and then mixed the bread and butter in a bowl - which worked out great. I didn't have any garlic, so I didn't add it, but wished I had. We really liked them, although my husband did say that it would have definitely been better with the garlic. They were quite soft/stale the next day, but I just popped them into the toaster oven for a few seconds and they came out like they were just freshly made. Will definitely make again (with the garlic!)
EXCELLENT! I pan-fried my pork tenderloin since the grill scares me, but I just browned both sides of the tenderloin on high and then covered and cooked on low until a meat thermometer told me it was done. This is the best marinade, and plan to use it on a pork loin this summer.
I used frozen green beans, but besides that (I wouldn't used canned green beans with this) I followed the recipe exactly. I can't wait to try it out on fresh green beans. I served these at a dinner, and as my guest was finishing up the beans he said, "You know, I really dislike green beans - they are my least favorite vegetable - but these are incredible!" And preceded to have two more helpings and the three of us finished the whole dish. I will definitely make beans this way from now on!
