Slow-Cooker Chicken Tortilla Soup

Reviewed: Jan. 5, 2010
I haven't tried this as written,because I didn't have the exact ingredients, but it still came out great. I used half of a leftover rotisserie chicken, no corn, and crushed tortilla chips instead of flour tortillas, then ran the immersion blender through the crockpot. Also, since I didn't have the can of chicken broth, I used a can of cream of chicken; that also made it creamy instead of broth-like. It tasted great, and I do plan to repeat the recipe as written for an upcoming party. I'll update then!

Southern Banana Pudding

Reviewed: Oct. 20, 2009
This is good, but to make a really southern treat, use Nutter Butter Cookies instead of vanilla wafers. This makes a Peanut Butter Banana Pudding! My friend's son eats a PB&B sandwich every day and he loves this version!!

Mexican Style Shredded Pork

Reviewed: May 24, 2009
Came out great!! Served with full Cinco de Mayo buffet. Most people put it over the yellow rice. Watch how much chile/adobo you add - can get very hot quickly.

Used this for Valentine's teacher gifts! We bought pink spoons from the party store & put them in heart print cello bags. Was a big hit.

Simple Taco Soup

Reviewed: Jan. 13, 2009
This was the easiest quickest way to get my kids to eat beans (husband, too). I didn't have regular corn, so I used cream corn, and it worked just fine. I also did not add the chilis this time since I didn't know how spicy it would be. It had enough taste, but was not very spicy at all. We did have cheddar cheese, sour cream, and little soup crackers for everyone to add, and they did. Lastly, we used deer meat instead of beef...no need to drain the fat! (This is my favorite deer recipe now). Addendum: This time I used last night's leftover hamburger patties, broken up. I also used regular ranch dressing instead of the powder, about 2-3 tbsp. Couldn't tell the difference! I love recipes that work with what I've got in the house!!

Hot Pepper Jelly

Reviewed: Dec. 18, 2008
This is the same recipe that comes with the Certo brand pectin, except that it calls for APPLE CIDER VINEGAR! This is the key. Also, instead of food processor, draining, cheese cloth, etc., just hand chop the peppers. They won't be watery at all! I have also added toasted, chopped pecans to my jelly jars as I pour in the hot jelly. It makes a great Christmas gift. (Add red or green food color when cooking jelly)

Sicilian Fig Cookies

Reviewed: Dec. 13, 2008
I took an Italian cookie making class years ago, and the lady teaching it taught us to make the filling days ahead of the cookies. Then, place the filling (half full) into zip top baggies, flatten, and freeze/refrigerate. When you are ready to make the cookies, slice open the sides of the baggie, and cut strips of filling with a long straight knife. It is then extremely easy to place the strips of filling on the rolled out dough that can be cut with a pizza cutter.

Aunt Anne's Sesame Cookies

Reviewed: Nov. 30, 2008
good, but not enough cookies for a large, Italian family's get-together. you've just got to have enough for everyone to take some home. otherwise, dough is silky, easy to handle, and very tasty.

Artichoke & Spinach Dip Restaurant Style

Reviewed: Nov. 30, 2008
By far better than the old recipe I used to use. I skipped the garlic altogether because the Alfredo Sauce (roasted garlic flavor) has it already - which made this even quicker to make. Also, I used a 16 oz bag frozen spinach, a low fat cream cheese, and a little more Parm. We served it for Thanksgiving, and everyone was eating it as a side dish! Great recipe.

Quick Quiche

Reviewed: Aug. 13, 2008
great & easy to follow - even works well with a store-bought crust (pre-bake partially before filling).

Biscotti

Reviewed: Aug. 13, 2008
Easy to follow with consistent results. I have made this recipe and varied the "add-ins" to get many different types of biscotti. They make a great teacher's treat... all of my children's teachers liked that they went well with coffee/tea, and that they don't go stale quickly. I varied the add-ins and sprinkles depending on the seasons.

Amish Friendship Bread Starter

Reviewed: Apr. 4, 2008
My friend uses this bread to make her bread pudding - talk about extra yummy. It's great to eat alone, but if you are going to use all of your starteers at once, bread pudding is the way to go.

Chewy Chocolate Chip Oatmeal Cookies

Reviewed: Apr. 8, 2007
Very good - mine came out thin, light, perfectly chewy, and wonderful with a glass of extra cold milk! I used granola instead of the oats.

Herb Roasted Pork

Reviewed: Apr. 8, 2007
We used dehydrated sliced garlic and put all the spices (doubled amounts) in a processor, made a powder of it, coated the roast, and refrigerated it over night in a plastic zip bag. In the morning, we injected the roast with half of the marinade. LINE THE PAN WITH FOIL-IT SEEPS OUT AND BURNS IN THE PAN! A little water or wine in the bottom would have made a tasty addition to the marinade. The balsamic vinegar suggestion was wonderful! Bake and baste as directed, but watch the meat temperature...it did not take 3 hours in a convection oven.

Crawfish and Corn Soup

Reviewed: Apr. 8, 2007
We are from New Orleans and usually have corn and crab, but my mother is allergic to crabs and the crawfish worked out well. We used cream of mushroom instead of potato, and corn that has been removed from the cob - with the corn milk. Extra seasoning was a MUST. A spoon of liquid Crab Boil makes it really New Orleans! If your grocery doesn't have it, try www.zatarain.com for many authentic treats & tastes of New Orleans.

Chess Pie

Reviewed: Jan. 8, 2007
FABULOUS! Make sure you have a deep dish crust...mine made too much filling for my crust, so I added a handful of coconut to it and made a second pie...both were fabulous. This is for people with a real love of sugary sweet.
