Avocado Salsa

Reviewed: Nov. 5, 2009
Got great reactions to this at work! I halved the recipe and used only 1 1/2 cloves of garlic and still kept the vampires away all day. Also added a roasted jalapeno and used lime instead of lemon since that's all I had. So glad I was lazy to go to the store and added oregano as the recipe stated instead of fresh cilantro. Ate this with my leftover beef barley soup (also from this website) - oh yum!

Mexican Rice III

Reviewed: Jun. 6, 2011
Excellent recipe! The only change I made was not add the bell pepper and took the jalapeno seeds out. Just the right amount of spice.

Quick Quiche

Reviewed: Nov. 29, 2008
I put everything in a rectangular Pyrex dish last night and plopped it in the oven this morning. It took about an hour to bake since it was in the fridge all night. I had about 2/3 of a pound of bacon that I cooked and crumbled used shredded cheddar and freshly grated parmesan. Stirred everything up and put more of both cheeses on the top about 10 minutes before it was done. It turned out delicious if I do say so myself!!!

Banana Crumb Muffins

Reviewed: Dec. 7, 2008
Make sure you have milk in the house if you make these :) I thought the crumb topping made them too sweet, but I'm more of the savory type. Hubby loved them. I made one and a half times the recipe and it made 18 "cupcakes". Also I could have left the recipe as is for the crumb topping since I ended throwing some of it away because it was too much.

Ten Minute Enchilada Sauce

Reviewed: Dec. 12, 2008
This is a great recipe. I used "Fiesta menudo mix" from Kroger instead of chili powder, chopped garlic instead of powder, and chopped onions instead of onion salt. No extra salt needed. Update: Noticed my comments were altered since I mentioned I used this to put into a soup recipe from another website. I realized after my comments were posted that allrecipes has the chicken enchilada soup recipe too (Chicken Enchilada Soup II). Need to try it - fattening but so worth it!

Chocolate Brittle Surprise

Reviewed: Dec. 14, 2008
These are so rich, but SO good! I used one whole sleeve of saltine crackers (37). After I spread the chocolate, I put sliced almonds on half and chopped pecans on the other. Took no time at all, and I know everyone that is getting some of these in their cookie tin are just going to love them!

Pretzel Turtles®

Reviewed: Dec. 14, 2008
What a great recipe this is! The most time-consuming step was taking all the wrappers off the Rolos. Didn't have parchment paper, but using butter flavored spray on the cookie sheet worked just fine. Be patient in the cooling time...thought the chocolate would never harden.

Mexican Wedding Cakes II

Reviewed: Dec. 14, 2008
Awesome! I put one cup of chopped walnuts and one cup of sweetened flaked coconut that I toasted. Instead of leaving them round, I flattened them a little. You can put them about an inch apart because they hardly spread.

Chicken Enchilada Soup II

Reviewed: Dec. 14, 2008
I made this for a potluck and people were asking me for the recipe. I put in about 1/3 of the Velveeta block. Next time I'll just use 3/4 of a cup of the masa harina. Tasted great with the addition of the enchilada sauce I got from allrecipes too.

Spinach Brownies

Reviewed: Nov. 26, 2008
Didn't have mozarella cheese, so I added about 1/3 cup Kraft parmesan and 1/2 cup freshly grated. Also added a minced garlic clove and sprinkled extra garlic powder, onion powder and pepper. Only put about 1/2 cup of fresh onion since I already had it chopped up in the fridge. Put it in a Pyrex dish that wasn't quite 9"x13". Received numerous compliments from both BIL and hubby!

Roasted Garlic Lemon Broccoli

Reviewed: Dec. 21, 2008
This is just like a recipe my daughter found on the internet except that freshly grated parmesan is missing - it's key, so don't omit this. When you take it out of the oven, sprinkle about 1/2 cup and toss it in the bowl with the lemon juice. Lemon zest kicks it up a notch too.

Mom's Zucchini Bread

Reviewed: Jan. 10, 2009
I'll be the 1156th reviewer :) Recipe made one meatloaf sized Pyrex and two minis. Sliced the small ones and hubby brought them to work and they all had great compliments. Why wouldn't they like it...it was free!

Catherine's Spicy Chicken Soup

Reviewed: Jan. 11, 2009
This recipe deserves 10 stars! I used chicken broth instead of the water and chicken bouillon. I only made half of what the recipe calls for, but wish I hadn't, because I bet this freezes well. Will probably make another batch this week :)

Avocado, Tomato and Mango Salsa

Reviewed: Jun. 18, 2009
This is really delicious! I doubled the recipe and just put two garlic cloves and it was more than enough. My friend at work said I could make it and sell it, but it does require a lot of chopping. Sure is eye appealing too.

Chicken Tikka Masala

Reviewed: Jul. 8, 2009
Other than curry, I thought I wasn't a fan of Indian food...until I made this last night. I wish I would have read the reviews beforehand and added some garam masala since I actually had some with my spices. I warmed up flour tortillas from Central Market (the best!) and gobbled it up :P

Debdoozie's Blue Ribbon Chili

Reviewed: Oct. 26, 2009
Great recipe! Cold and raining, so I didn't feel like stopping at the store on my way home from work just for some chili seasoning. Searched the internet and found a perfect recipe for some. I had everything else in my pantry. Used 93/3 ground beef so didn't need to drain any fat. Added a roasted jalapeno and some fresh garlic; other than that, followed the recipe. I found it a little salty so added a little water. Thickened it at the end with some masa harina...GREAT!

Cha Cha's White Chicken Chili

Reviewed: Jan. 11, 2010
This is an excellent recipe! I used a 7 oz. can of chopped green chilis and then roasted 3 jalapeno peppers and seeded and chopped them (and have a burned arm to prove it...lol). Didn't have any cayenne so added some black pepper. PERFECT amount of spice for me. I did drain the beans, but didn't rinse them. I also used 2 1/2 cups of broth from the two chicken breasts that I boiled with some bouillon. Ate a bowl for lunch with a dallop of sour cream - DELICIOUS!

Tiramisu Toffee Dessert

Reviewed: Aug. 22, 2010
This is a super easy recipe and SO DELICIOUS! I used my Vietnamese coffee press so the coffee would be really strong. I only added 1/2 cup sugar with the cream cheese and substituted Kahlua for the chocolate syrup. I poured about a cup of the heavy cream in with it (this made the middle layer). I then beat the other cup of cream with about 1/4 cup of sugar and added about a 1/2 a teaspoon of vanilla extract (next time I think I'll add rum instead). I spread this mixture on top and put the crushed up Heath bar on last. All you other alcoholics out there will love it this way...lol!

Alyson's Broccoli Salad

Reviewed: Dec. 18, 2008
Realized that I never posted a rating for this. Made this for a Thanksgiving potluck at work and several people asked for the recipe. With all the great side dishes we had, I was surprised how popular this was :P
