So good! These were supposed to be an appetizer but turned into the main course. Serve it with crusty bread to sop up juices and sauce, yummy!"

This was very easy and very tasty. The only thing I would do differently would be to make the sauce a day ahead. It tasted better the next day. You can't go wrong with grilled asparagus! While we had the grill out, we also did corn on the cob- it made a complete meal off the grill. Very good, indeed! "

Reviewed Smoked Pork Chops With Corn and Okra

This was very good. I did add more Cajun seasoning because we like it spicy. I was also a little worried about flavoring so I added salt to the onions while they were sauteing. I did use frozen corn and okra, which cut way back on my cooking/ prep time. I also used mushrooms because I had some that were going to go bad soon. My family really enjoy"

After reading other reviews I decided to use the 7oz of chipotle peppers and it turned out perfect! It didn't start out hot but got hotter the more you ate. It was a nice sweet, smokey, spicy dish that wasn't overly hot. I make mine in the crock pot. It has become a staple in my house that I make once a month. We turn ours into burritos. Will cont"

I read the reviews before I made this and added garlic powder, salt and pepper for extra flavor. These were great! It was my first time using phyllo dough and it was easy. I'm going to experiment again with this recipe because I have a lot of leftover dough. Served these at Thanksgiving and people LOVED it :) ""

I thought this recipe was okay. I thought the vinegar would cut some of the maple syrup sweetness but it didn't seem to do anything, i might as well have used straight syrup, it was way too sweet. I've had maple syrup tenderloin and thought this would be a good recipe to try. Maybe i'll try it again but use less syrup. ""

Reviewed Lemon Chicken Soup with Spaghetti

I thought it was okay. The lemon was a nice twist but other than that I thought it was a little bland. I could probably take canned soup and add lemon juice and get the same results. ""

I've made this several times and each time it gets better and better. I've even made it with chicken. Very affordable to make. So simple yet so good. Definitely will continue to make."

I'm amazed how easy and yummy this was! I can't believe I didn't think of this myself. I used frozen spinach run under hot tap water instead of fresh and it turned out sooo good! It was nice to find such a simple recipe that tasted so good. "

My husband and I were in the mood for something different and delicious. This was so good! It was so flavorful and very easy to make. Since it was just the two of us, we had at least four meals from leftovers. The onions were fantastic and really worth making. Amazing!!!! You cannot go wrong."
