Really good seasoning! I think it's just perfect like it is. Since I seen this recipe this is all I use to season the meat for my tacos."

Delicious casserole! My onions came out good. The temperature for the onions is too high, instead of 475 degrees bake them at 375 degrees. They will take a bit longer to cook but will not burn. Also, make sure you have a good pan too cook them in, like an Airbake, that will help out a lot; they will not burn but cook evenly. I added one tablespoon"

I've made this several times already in the past year. I am finally reviewing it since I've never gotten to it but know that it deserves its positive review by now. It is delicious. This desert makes a perfect summer sweet treat. My whole family enjoys it and have asked me to do it again for them. It is definite worth making."

I only did the dry rub part and it was good. All the spices blend well together for a delicious bbq flavor. I purchased a six pound Boston butt and followed directions until I got to the sauce part. I did not do this recipe's sauce because I wanted for a long time to try the Neely's BBQ Sauce - and it was finger licking good. "

I am not a fan of enchiladas but some of my family members are. I decided to do it for them and I tell you they weren't bad. This is a good recipe for red sauce enchiladas. Reason I typed red sauce is because most enchiladas recipes have the green chile sauce (or verde sauce). Note: for the Mexican blend spice I mixed up Alton Brown's "Taco Potion"

The cupcakes are on the soft side so one has to be careful when taking them out. Although they are soft I think that's what makes them a perfect bite. They are fluffy and so delicious. I think the mascarpone has a lot to do with the softness and moistness in the batter. I am not fond about boxed cake mixes but decided to give it a try since it w...

I have made peach cobbler with other recipes but I have to admit--hands down--this one is the winner. Succulent from bottom to top. I believe the bourbon adds that distinctive taste that other peach cobblers don't have and it's what makes it peerless. All in all, this is a keeper. Hooray, Tyler!""

This is a delicious recipe only for the cheesecake. I did not like the raspberry topping. Thus, the four stars. I thought the sauce was too thick and sweet and ruined the overall taste of the recipe. For my second serving I omitted the sauce and that's why I noted I like the cheesecake part only. Perhaps if one were to make the raspberry sauce fr...

Good coconut flavor. I enjoyed baking this cake for my mother's birthday. The almond extract gives it a nice nutty flavor. The frosting is easy to make and tasty. The coconut flakes give a nice presentation to the cake. It's too much cake to bake unless it's for a special event with a few mouths around. I can't wait for the next event/birthday.""
