Whiskey Steak Sirloin
I am not a fan of whiskey, and this steak had such a strong amount of whiskey taste I wasn’t a huge fan. First of all, I would suggest that you bake it for longer than the time said. I pulled it out after the 8 minutes and it was tremendously red in the middle. Had to put it in the microwave for a while to finally get rid of it. The whiskey and soy sauce really took over in the taste department. On one hand, it was easy to make: marinate overnight and then broil for ten-ish minutes. It didn’t taste horrible, I mean it’s steak, but I’d rather have some marinade without whiskey (I had Jack Daniels so you can’t even blame the whiskey). If you are a whiskey drinker, you’d love this, but I’ll say thumbs down just for me.
Shredded Potato Casserole
The infamous potato casserole that is at almost every family function. I’ve never made it before, but have always loved eating it. This time was no exception. One thing I need to teach myself (which I did for the steak and the salad, but not the potatoes) is to read the recipe the night before, in case there is something I need to do that night - ya know like THAW THE POTATOES. Well, thankfully my boyfriend is smart and submerged the bag of frozen potatoes in hot water. If it were just me, I would have put off the recipe until the next day. One thing I would change about this recipe is to add more cornflake/cheese mixture to the top. I didn’t feel like there was enough to sprinkle over the entire thing. Thumbs up, make it!
an hour and a half, I added the pulled chicken and allowed it to simmer for another ten minutes or so. This gumbo was perfect over rice (like the recipe suggests) and is quite delicious. I've never had okra before, and though it's really nothing special, I am glad that I've finally had it. Thumbs up on this recipe. I wouldn't recommend making it on a weeknight (unless you don't work during the day) because of the long simmer time, but it's a great treat on a cold night like we have been having in St. Louis.
South - Chicken
muffin recipe which was pretty easy. Instead of orange peel, I used some orange extract - probably too much since I didn't exactly measure it - but it's definitely not overwhelming in orange taste. I definitely recommend this recipe if you're looking for a muffin recipe for either dessert or breakfast. I now have some extra mashed sweet potatoes though, perhaps I can put some brown sugar and butter on it for a nice "snack" later? I'll give this recipe a Thumbs up. Delish.
