Leek Potato Mushroom Cheddar Soup

Reviewed: Dec. 16, 2013
My husband and I made this last night and really enjoyed it - after we used some much needed tabasco to pump up the flavor... I did make a few minor changes to the recipe. I started by cooking about 4 strips of chopped bacon. Once the bacon was crispy, I removed the cooked bacon (reserved for garnish) and cooked the mushrooms in the bacon grease. I removed the mushrooms, set them aside and then cooked the leeks and potatoes, adding chicken broth and seasoning. I simmered the potatoes for about 25 minutes, until they were done. I think an hour is a bit long and may yield mushy over cooked potatoes. The next time I will add some cayenne (see note above) and likely sub thyme for the celery seed (I didn't have celery salt) since my husband isn't a huge fan of celery. Overall good, quick, hearty soup recipe. I will definitely make it again.

Delicious! I didn't have any chili sauce so I used ketchup instead.

Baked Buffalo Wings

Reviewed: Nov. 21, 2009
Awesome! I only let the floured wings rest in the fridge for 15 minutes because I was starving. Turned out great! Definitely going to be a staple in my home.

The Best Bean and Ham Soup

Reviewed: Jan. 5, 2009
This recipe is ridiculous. Tangy, hearty and so easy to throw together. All it takes is time, but wow, is it worth it. I generally make a traditional ham and bean soup with the Christmas ham bone, but after making this I'll never go back!

Bacon Wrapped Smokies

Reviewed: Nov. 11, 2008
These are a HUGE hit everytime I make them. I love them because I can assemble them in advance and put them in the over right before my guests arrive. I throw them in the crock pot on low to keep them warm.

Tangy Slow Cooker Pork Roast

Reviewed: Nov. 5, 2008
This recipe is a keeper! I made it last night for some friends and it got good reviews from all. I made the following changes: seared the pork, doubled the sauce with the exception of the sugar and used brown sugar instead of white. I made the sauce in the pan I seared the pork to be sure to get all the good bits and juices left behind. I also did everything the night before so the pork had 8 hours to "marinate" in the sauce. I think this made a huge difference in not drying out the pork. I thickened the sauce with cornstarch and served it with buttered noodles and roasted veggies. Will definitely make this again.

Baked Macaroni and Cheese III

Reviewed: Jul. 9, 2008
This is a good basic recipe. I took the advice of others and spiced it up with a half of a sauted onion, garlic powder and a pinch of cayenne. I also added more cheese, about a cup of swiss, to the cheddar.

Wonderful Short Ribs

Reviewed: Dec. 30, 2007
This recipe is fantastic! Not to mention easy to boot. I seared the ribs in the pan first and deglazed with one cup of wine. After the alcohol burned off I added the rest of the ingredients and put it in a 300 degree oven, checking every so often to skim off some of the fat. This is definitely going to become a staple in my house.

Jamie's Minestrone

Reviewed: Nov. 26, 2007
I've been making this soup for years and am just getting around to rating it... I call this soup "garbage soup" mostly because I add just about any veggies I have in the fridge. I also sometimes start off the soup by frying up some crumbled italian sausage and then sauting my veggies in the fat. I have added canned corn, black beans, white beans...if I have it, it generally goes in. I always use italian seasoning though instead of the recommended seasonings.

Corn Chowder II

Reviewed: Nov. 26, 2007
Love, love, love this recipe. Quick and easy to throw together and let simmer away on the stove. I added one stalk of chopped celery, one chopped carrot to the onion and then added a diced potato and a can of mild green chilies with the cans of corn. I also subsituted half the jack cheese for pepper jack for an extra kick. I waited until the last few minutes of cooking to add the cheese though for fear it would burn. Your family will love this recipe and it's perfect on a chilly day!
