Caldo de Res (Mexican Beef Soup)

Reviewed: Dec. 17, 2008
Mom made this for us growing up. I've revised using short ribs and any cut of roast on sale. Just ask the butcher to cut into stew meat. I also add celery stalks and bay leaf. Cumin is also necessary. I used wedges of cabbage at the end and zucchini squash and it turns into a robust vegetable beef soup. Don't forget the corn on the cob, I keep some in the freezer. One more tip, we sometimes serve on top of a scoop of white rice if we don't have enough soup. Deelicious

Cranberry Bars

Reviewed: Nov. 28, 2008
I made these last year (Christmas) with what I had in my kitchen. They were a refreshing change from all the other rich and chocolate goodies. I made them again for Thanksgiving and received good reviews. Nice with coffee.

Easy Grilled Tri Tip

Reviewed: Nov. 28, 2008
Very nice and simple, tasty recipe. Although it does not seem to make a lot it does flavor the meat adequately. Marinaded overnight and grilled, delicious! Definitely easy.

Rosemary Roasted Turkey

Reviewed: Nov. 28, 2008
Very nice and moist turkey with a heavenly smell!! Mixed it up the night before and adjusted amounts for a 20 lb bird. My husband added some butter to this when rubbing the excess on top of the breast along with 1/2 cup of wine to the pan. Wonderful recipe, made excellent gravy. Yummy. This is a keeper, thanks!

Roast Sticky Chicken-Rotisserie Style

Reviewed: Nov. 17, 2008
Made this on a lazy weekend. Put in the oven at noon and forgot all about it. I just had one 5 lb. chicken so I made a little more than half of the spice mix, adjusting the cayenne to my preference. Didn't have onion powder or white pepper, so I just used a bit of Lipton onion soup mix. It came out fantastic, so juicy and flavorful. I think we overcooked it cause the meat was falling off the bones. The house smelled lovely and it gave enough drippings for me to make the other half of the chicken with gravy. Yummy! How convenient. Next time, though I will lessen the baking time when making only 1 chicken. Also I will add potatoes to bake in the broth slowly, mmmmmm.. . A keeper, thanks!!

Teena's Spicy Pesto Chicken and Pasta

Reviewed: Jul. 23, 2008
Made this last night for dinner, DH loved it. I knew for my own taste to only add 1 tsp. of chili paste so he added chili flakes later. I sauted mushrooms and I wish I could have added more of the bounty that I had in my fridge. I agree with the suggestion of adding white wine cause the juices seem to disappear quickly. I will be making this again and adding more veggies and using up my homemade pesto! Thanks!

Taco Salad II

Reviewed: Jun. 21, 2008
I've been making this for years and NO, do not refrigerate! Please don't forget to put in at least 1 ripe avocado, cubed and black olives. The dressing I've used for years is 1 small can tomato sauce mixed with about 1/2 cup Italian dressing or to taste. Don't pour the dressing on til the last minute. It's awesome and lighter than Ranch. Leftovers get soggy, though. Try it!

Black Bean and Corn Salad II

Reviewed: Jun. 2, 2008
Used 2 ears of roasted corn, left out garlic, red peppers and 1 can of beans and only 1/8 cup oil. Used lemon juice instead (no limes around), 2 chopped and seeded jalapenos, added chili powder and cumin. I found I needed to add the jalapenos and extra lemon juice for that extra zing but it was a great vegetarian meal for my DH and me. It was better the next day and since there was so much lemon juice, the avocado didn't oxidize much at all. Will definitely make again, thanks!!

Marinated Grilled Shrimp

Reviewed: May 27, 2008
Made this for Memorial Day, used ketchup instead of tomato sauce, dried basil and added some lemon juice. This made enough for 1 pound of tiger prawns on skewers, deveined with shell ON. Juicy!! Used the extra marinade for basting and they were excellent!! This is a keeper.

Creamy Chicken With Pasta and Broccoli

Reviewed: Apr. 26, 2008
Made this last week, left out cream cheese and ran out of parm. Substituted jack cheese. Added frozen peas, strips of ham and plenty of Italian seasoning. Used bowtie pasta and it came out lovely. The whole family loved it.

Italian Beef Sandwiches

Reviewed: Apr. 18, 2008
Made for a family dinner and everyone loved it. Made a few changes: used bottom round, a can of beef broth, cooked for an extra hour since I do not like rare beef. One note, I will add less red pepper flakes next time cause I had to dilute the drippings with extra broth to tone down the spicy broth for my grandson, although my husband and son loved it. Served with individual ciabatta rolls, roasted potatoes and tomato cucumber salad. Will definitely make again!!

Apple Sticky Buns

Reviewed: Feb. 19, 2008
YUMMY!! DH loved them! It was an easy recipe, but I mistakenly put all the flour in at once, almost threw it out. Ran out of time so I had to refrigerate overnite, put out to room temp the next day. Came out wonderful! It's easier than rolling, spreading and cutting like other recipes. Thanks, great recipe! Will definitely make again.

Bean Soup

Reviewed: Jan. 11, 2008
Doubled the recipe for this soup, which was very good. Kinda messed up my measurements which mostly went by my taste. Had a huge hambone with lots of meat, tried the baking soda trick, that was cool! Doubled up the veggies and added no salt, just boullion powder to taste and pepper. I made the extra to freeze for lazy days. I wouldn't have minded some tomatoes or tomato sauce but loved this soup. Served with beer bread from this site. Nice wintertime meal.

Beer Bread I

Reviewed: Jan. 11, 2008
This was good, but unfortunately the flavor of the beer made for a bitter taste. Dipped in bean soup or with butter it was great, though. I used the extra sugar, put butter on top and made in 2 separate pans, still ate it up. I do not like the flavor of beer but even my beer loving husband said it was bitter. I loved the texture, though. I will make it again but use a bubbly soda next time. Great recipe for watching your pennies.

Best Toffee Ever - Super Easy

Reviewed: Jan. 8, 2008
Great recipe, I found with this one I prefer my toffee as thin as possible so next time I will use 2 prepared pans and spread quickly. I still like a bit more crunch to my candy but if left in the fridge you will get best results. After a few days it's better. I had many compliments for this recipe and sent a whole bunch home to my son's girlfriend, who loved it! Great for Christmas goody gifts.

Jay's Signature Pizza Crust

Reviewed: Jan. 7, 2008
Great recipe! This made enough for a nice thick crust large pizza tonight. It could easily be halved and made into 2 medium thinner crust pizzas. I added 2 tbsp. Italian seasonings for extra flavor and also precooked for about 10 minutes before adding toppings. Advice: make sure and brush with olive oil to the edge of the crust so the edges will come out softer. I will be definitely be making this again. Even though I make it by hand, it's a cinch to put together. Awesome recipe, Jay, thanks!

California Roll Salad

Reviewed: Aug. 13, 2007
Great summer salad. Left out the lettuce, added extra mayo and rice wine vinegar. Then as a finishing touch I added some Mexican hot sauce called Tapatio, (any hot sauce will do), yum! With 3 inch nori squares on the side to make tiny rolls, it tasted just like a California roll. Will definitely make again for my sushi loving son.
