Brazilian Style Flan (Pudim de Leite Condensado)

Reviewed: Jan. 16, 2010
Very tasty! I split it into 5 ramekins for individual servings. The only issue is that mine had tiny air bubbles...why?

Asparagus with Sliced Almonds and Parmesan Cheese

Reviewed: Jul. 10, 2011
Aside from waiting to add the parmesan once the asparagus is plated, this recipe is the best way to serve asparagus! Why oh WHY do people insist on making casseroles and covering their delicious asparagus with needless toppings??? Here's a quick, no fuss version I use: Toss raw asparagus in olive oil or melted butter, spread out onto baking sheet (lined w/ foil for easy cleanup), sprinkle almonds or cashews on top, and bake at 450 in toaster oven or conventional oven for about 10 minutes. Top with parmesan when ready to serve. Delicioso!!!

Bubble 'n' Squeak

Reviewed: Oct. 30, 2011
This is delicious as is! However, it can be made a little healthier and still as delicious: To preserve nutrients otherwise lost to the cooking water, microwave the cabbage for 2 minutes to soften. To cut back a little on fat and calories, use a small amount of olive oil to cook the onion and microwaved cabbage, and bacon that has been pre-cooked and drained of grease (but don't eliminate the bacon pieces! It really makes the dish!). I also use a higher cabbage:potato ratio. Sometimes sweet potato, sometimes no potato. Another delicious variation is to use smoked turkey or duck instead of ham.

Easy and Quick Cream Cheese Potatoes

Reviewed: Apr. 22, 2010
Fan-freakin'-tasic! Of course, if 2 tbsp of butter is good, then 8 is better! Yes, I use a whole stick, and it's WORTH it!

Slow Cooker Carnitas

Reviewed: Jun. 21, 2011
So amazingly delicious! Didn't have ground coriander so I used fresh cilantro, and accidentally forgot the cinnamon. Added about 3 tbsp adobo sauce from a can of chipotles. So tender, it shredded the meat just by lifting little pieces with tongs right in the slow cooker! Served it to my husband in a bowl over rice (flavored with butter, lime, salt, and cilantro), black beans, sour cream, cheese, and avocado - just like his favorite restaurant!

Sour Cream Chicken Enchiladas

Reviewed: Dec. 6, 2010
The tortillas got very soggy and gummy. I thing these would likely be better with corn tortillas. Also, I couldn't find "jalapeno salsa" and I live in Texas. I may try these again w/ corn torts, and come back to change the number of stars. Also, I think Jack cheese would be far better.

Strawberry Dream Cake I

Reviewed: May 15, 2011
I've made this several times for parties and work events. Very moist! So much better than typical strawberry cake mixes due to the real frozen strawberries. One recommendation: don't overblend the strawberries, be sure to leave it just a bit chunky!

MySweetCreations Peanut Butter Cookie Pie

Reviewed: Aug. 27, 2012
This is another recipe that the husband and father-in-law absolutely loved, but I thought it was just okay. Made exactly according to recipe. Here are my thoughts: 1. The little bit of cinnamon in the crust was delicious, but a bit strong maybe for some tastes, and I actually didn't think it was a good flavor combination with PB. Next time I would omit the cinnamon. 2. The crust was delicious, but should have been thicker. Next time I will increase by 1.5-2x. 3. It is definitely best served DIRECTLY FROM THE FREEZER. Even sitting in the fridge it softened a bit too much and the texture was too loose. In the freezer it becomes more firm, but not hard. 4. Because it should be served right out of the freezer, it's probably not good for potlucks or buffet style meals.

Baked Potato Soup I

Reviewed: Dec. 3, 2011
Made this tonight for my inlaws. It was delicious! However, I thought it required considerably more salt (about 3 tsps). Also recommend cooking 3-4 extra slices of bacon to garnish.

White Chili I

Reviewed: Nov. 26, 2011
Five delicious stars that sent the husband back for seconds! The minor adjustments I made to accommodate cooking for two using what I had on hand stayed pretty true to the original recipe: 1. Used one large precooked breast, shredded; 2. 1 cup broth; 3. 1/2 can chiles; 4. fresh cilantro; 5. 1 can navy beans but not rinsed; 6. no green onions. It made approximately 3.5 perfect and delicious servings. I didn't have problems with it being too soupy, but had higher bean to chicken ratio. I using more than one chicken breast, I recommend using more than one can of beans. (but please stick to white beans. It's WHITE chili!) Topped with jack cheese, sour cream, and jalapeno slices.

Apple and Pumpkin Dessert

Reviewed: Nov. 12, 2011
Not bad, especially for so few ingredients and work (oh, and calories). However, I will not be making this again.

Roast Sticky Chicken-Rotisserie Style

Reviewed: Jul. 30, 2011
Excellent, flavorful, and juicy. Also try using a whole chicken cut-up, and bake on 300 for 2 hours. Make a gravy from the yummy drippings!

Kiki's Borracho (Drunken) Beans

Reviewed: Jan. 22, 2012
Followed the recipe exactly and the flavor is pretty good. I don't think they are too spicy as some other reviewers have suggested. I do however find the garlic flavor a bit too biting and the beer flavor too strong. (As in, the beans taste like beer). I would recommend sweating the onions & garlic in a little oil before adding to the beans to get rid of bitterness, possibly cutting back to maybe 4 cloves. Also recommend using about 8 oz of beer instead of 12.

Zucchini Egg Bake

Reviewed: Nov. 23, 2011
Delicious and healthful! Can also be made with broccoli or fresh mushrooms. If you don't have all the fresh herbs on hand or no parmesan, it's still really good without them. You can also separate into 4 ramekins and cook in a toaster oven for about 20 minutes on 350.

Syrupy Apples

Reviewed: Nov. 16, 2011
Delicious as written, but like the other reviewers, I add cinnamon. Its delicious topped with granola or an oat "crisp" and vanilla ice cream!

Cheesy Ham and Hash Brown Casserole

Reviewed: Jul. 7, 2011
I made this exactly according to the recipe, except that I baked it the night before without the parmesan cheese, then put it back in the oven in the morning for about 25 minutes with the parmesan sprinkled on top. Delicious!

Sweet Chipotle Grilling Sauce

Reviewed: Jul. 3, 2011
I used this sauce to top country style that I cooked in the oven at 275 degrees for 2 hours. I basted with the sauce, and stuck under the broiler. Due to the high sugar content, it caramelized in about 8 minutes. Just spicy enough. I only give it 4 stars b/c it was really too sweet for me. Next time, I might try adding a little more soy.

Chunky Cheesecake Brownies

Reviewed: Jan. 9, 2011
Gave 4 stars so I wouldn't mess up the ratings. However: Accidentally used "chocolate-flavored" chips. Not sure if this is the reason, but these were a disaster. Really oily, undercooked, and way too sweet. Even my husband, who never turns away from sweets, didn't like them.

Chicken Spinach Quiche

Reviewed: Jan. 16, 2010
I've made this with different cheeses, including gruyere, mozzarella, and jack; and I've also used low-fat sour cream in place of mayo and fresh spinach instead of frozen (since its difficult to use a whole bag from costco before it goes bad!). Canned chicken works, or leftover rotisserie chicken. Usually takes an hour to bake in my oven, and wrap the edges in foil so they don't burn.
