one. But from what everyone told me they were good but not amazing. The recipe itself gets a thumbs up because it was really easy to put together - except for the fact that the peppers I purchased were HUGE and I had to use an entire piece of bacon (along with TWO toothpicks) instead of half like the recipe called for. This also could be a reason why the bacon wasn't fully cooked after the 30 minutes. I'll give this recipe a thumbs to the side.

chicken. This will probably be the only time I'm not going to follow the recipe because I'm not too sure how I feel about the outcome. I'm sure it would have been a lot better had I done what the recipe stated. Lesson learned.
The recipe is no long available online - so here it goes:
1 can 14oz diced tomatoes, drained
1/2 cup chopped onion
4 garlic cloves, peeled
1 tsp salt (divided)
1/2 tsp dried Mexican oregano
1/2 tsp chili powder
1/2 pepper (divided)
1 broiler/fryer chicken, (3-4 lbs) cut up
3 tbsp canola oil (divided)
1 1/2 cups uncooked long grain rice
3 cups chicken broth
1 cup frozen peas

I wanted to share with you all my New Years Eve and Winter Classic Menu!! Go Blues!!
interesting because everyone loves Syberg's sauce. I wonder if it's different when using it at home versus ordering it at the restaurant? Hmm. I bought an electric skillet for this and I'm in love with it. It was so easy to use and so easy to clean up. I may start using this for everything. The temperature was easy to set and consistent throughout the whole cook time. I can't do that with my stove top!! I'll give this recipe a thumbs up.

up in the trash, which is really sad since I spent my hard earned money on this. I guess it was bound to happen eventually... maybe I can try eating it while drinking? Nah I don't think that would work. Anyone have an idea? I may just endure it. I do love these pita chips.
Thumbs way, way down.

could be way wrong on that one!) They were delicious for sure. I used Land Shark as the beer of choice (ya know, to make it more beach like), and opted not to add fresh lime slices or salt on the rim. The one thing I would change for next time, I'd want to strain the lime juice before mixing the ingredients. I hated that once I got to the bottom of the glass it was full of pulp. Gah, pulp! Other than that, this drink was delicious and I would definitely make it again!

would normally make it. Yes, it uses Velveeta, but instead of Rotel, it used green chilies and pimentos as the main ingredient. Sounds really weird, but it was strangely really good. Who would have thought to put some diced pimentos into Queso dip? Not me, but thanks Taste of Home cookbook for helping me realize this geniusness. I would definitely make this again.
Thumbs way, way up.
Southwest - Appetizer - Dip - Cheese
I love Hanky Pankies. It wasn't until this cookbook that I actually knew what they were called. Everyone in my family calls them Rye bread pizzas, I guess that's a fitting name. Nevertheless, these are delicious and easy to make. Two pounds of meat, some spices, and Velveeta. Differences in the recipe that I did - I just put some onion powder in there instead of the onions (this is because I forgot to get onions and decided it wasn't worth going out in an ice storm to get). Another thing - the oven I used wasn't capable of being set to "broil" so I just
- 1 lb ground beef
- 1 lb ground pork
- 1 medium onion, chopped
- 1 lb Velveeta
- 1 tbsp Worcestershire sauce
- 1 tap oregano
- 1 loaf snack rye bread
In a large skillet cook the beef sausage and onion until meat no long pink, drain. Stir in cheese, Worcestershire sauce and seasonings. Spread the bread slices with a tbsp of mixture; place on baking sheet. Broil for 3 minutes.

I love almonds. Especially with all these wonderful spices on them. They were super easy to make as well. Just toss the almonds in egg white and then spices and bake in the over. Super simple and such a sweet treat to snack on while watching movies.
