Reviewed paula's perfect pie crust

Dec 26, 2014 on

This was my 1st time making my own pie crust and it was successful and delicious. I followed another reviewer's instructions for doing this in the food processor. I wish there was a video of this recipe done in a good processor because I had a hard time knowing when there was enough water. Next time I will add water SLOWLY, stopping to test throughout...

Best appetizer I've ever had. I've made them twice - easier in a regular muffin tin, but they are then too big for a hand-held appetizer. I serve them with dinner alongside other food - such as a filet mignon - and voila! - surf and turf. Sprayed muffin tin with Pam. Used Grands Buttermilk biscuits, still cut in half and rolled out thin. It will...

Nov 30, 2013 on

As another reviewer said, these were a sloppy mess. Medium Low on a gas burner wasn't hot enough, so our patience did not pay off.

Bad. Followed the recipe to the letter. Really - not good. Enchiladas usually take some work and I was skeptical when the recipe said "simple." I should have listened to myself."

If you tend to like food that others think is bland, you'll like this. It is really very bland. I tried adding more Old Bay Seasoning and it helped a little, but not enough. Next time, I'm going to try a crab dip that has a lot of different ingredients to add flavor. I made it exactly as it is written. I'm confused by these rave reviews."

Reviewed Spicy Avocado Soup With Chicken and Lime

Jul 23, 2012 in on

Easy and tasty. I always get the bag of avocados at costco and sometimes can't use them all. This is a great way to use up 2 avocados. You really don't need cheese or sour cream - it's good as is. I used the Mild Rotel tomatoes and adjusted the spiciness with fresh ground black pepper. I was afraid it wouldn't be spicy enough, but it was per...
