Reviewed Arroz Con Gandules (Rice and Pigeon Peas)-A Puerto Rican Fav

2 days ago in on Food.com

This recipe is a keeper. Came out almost the same as Abuela';s(she';s not my Abuela though or I would have her recipe--lol)--- but not quite as dry. My biggest obstacle with cooking this rice is getting it very dry. I can';t seem to master it. So frustrating as I have been trying for years! I did cook mine much longer than the re...

Reviewed Thousand Island Dressing

Sep 14, 2014 in on Food.com

Better tasting than store brought and so incredibly easy to put together. All ingredients that are on hand. Who knew it was this simple. I should have started making my own dressings sooner. Advice: If you are making dressings instead of store brought to avoid preservatives you may want to check your mayo label. Mine had a preservative in i...

Aug 17, 2014 in on Food.com

Very good! The flavor of this dressing is as good as store bought! I loved knowing exactly what was in my dressing and loved that there were no preservatives in it. I did not realize until recently that there were preservatives in the popular store brands. I could not find any without...the reason I started looking here for recipes.

Reviewed Best Raspberry Salad Dressing (Vinaigrette)

Jul 27, 2014 in on Food.com

Very good. I was a little short on oil, so recipe was a bit potent, but I like a bit more vinegar taste anyhow. Also, I did not have poppy seeds on hand. I am sure they would have enhanced the appearance, but I am not sure if they contribute to flavor. Next time I will use the emulsion blender to blend the raspberries and vinegar only, then add r...

Reviewed Pollo a La Brasa (Peruvian Grilled Chicken)

Oct 17, 2013 in on Food.com

Close, but not quite as good as my local Peruvian place. Smells just like it, but flavor not permeated through meat, as there';s is. Maybe I should have marinated it longer. I did about 6 - 7 hours. Also, I missed the little sauce packet."

Never thought to turn my chicken on it';s side. Good idea Julia! My chicken did stick a little and when I turned it the skin stayed on the bottom of my pan. I will butter the bottom of my pan next time. I would have given this recipe 5 stars had the vegetables not started to burn. When they kept burning I decided to search the recipe aga...

Used it for turkey stock. In addition, I also added a couple chicken bouillion cubes for flavor. Unbelievable how much more richer and flavorful it was done in the pressure cooker. It beats all other vessels, hands down!"

Reviewed Buffalo Wings

Jan 23, 2012 in on Food.com

I have tried several oven baked Buffalo Wing recipes and have to face it: there is nothing like fried. For baked, these wings were very good. Very tender, though I did cook them about 20 min longer than recipe stated, as I was trying to get them crispier. The problem is that the underside sits in juices and gets soggy. Even if top side is crispy...

Reviewed Cornbread Croutons

Jan 23, 2012 in on Food.com

Had these for the first time at a restaurant and was impressed at how good they were. Took me a few minutes to figure out what they were made of. Never would've thought to make croutons from corn bread. So simple and so good. Wish I had known of them sooner, it would have saved many partially eaten loaves from going into the trash can.
