Slow Cooker Chicken Taco Soup

Reviewed: Mar. 22, 2010
Love this soup! I made it just about as written. I only used chili beans because that's all I had. I also doubled the taco seasoning for our own personal tastes. The only beer I had on hand was Guinness (left over from St. Patrick's Day!). I wasn't sure how well that would go with this dish, but it was delicious. Since I was feeling extra ambitious, I made home-made bread bowls, and served it up in them. Garnished with a little sour cream, shredded cheese, and cilantro......YUMM!!

Pico de Gallo

Reviewed: Mar. 10, 2010
We absolutely love this! I had never even had pico de gallo until last summer, when a friend made some while we were on a camping trip. When we came home, I began looking for a recipe to try and found this one. We like it much better than the one our friend had made (I wouldn't tell her though!). Excellent and addictive!

Lime Chicken Soft Tacos

Reviewed: Mar. 8, 2010
I loved this, but with modifications. I doubled the sauce ingredients, omitted the oregano, added 1 tsp. cumin and some chili powder and chopped fresh cilantro. I also grilled the chicken breasts first until just past the pink stage inside, then shredded them. Then, I added the sauce to the shredded chicken and sauteed it all together in a skillet. I served it all in my home-made wheat tortillas.........YUMMMM!

Tortillas I

Reviewed: Mar. 8, 2010
This was my first experience with making tortillas. We have been using so many store-bought ones that I thought I should try to make my own. I'm so glad that I did. This recipe was so easy. For our preferences, I tried it using only whole wheat flour, and only made 1/2 batch in case they didn't turn out well. I also doubled the salt. I did need to add quite a bit more water since I was using the whole wheat flour and it was a dry winter day. I bake a lot of bread, so I've already learned that the amount of water needed depends on the humidity and the type of flour you're using. I made mine bigger, only got 15 out of half the recipe. I rolled them very thin, and cooked them in my non-stick skillet on med/high heat for about 45-60 seconds on each side. No more store-bought tortillas for us!

Allspice Cream Cheese Frosting

Reviewed: Feb. 17, 2010
I used this recipe as a base because I was looking for a frosting recipe for a spice cake, and this sounded good. I only had 4 oz. of cream cheese left, so that is what I used along with 1/3 cup butter, and probably about 3 cups of confectioners'sugar. (I didn't really measure it, just kept adding until consistency was right) I didn't add any milk, but did add the vanilla and allspice. Then, I decided to stir in some finely chopped pecans, and it was delicious! Perfect frosting for my spice cake!

Honey Roasted Red Potatoes

Reviewed: Dec. 29, 2009
These were very yummy. I knew they would take longer than I was going to have to roast them, so I did boil them for just long enough to soften them ever so slightly. I then used a large non-stick cookie sheet since I had doubled the recipe for a larger group of people. I stirred them several times while they were roasting. It still took about 45 minutes for them to develop the nice crunchy caramelized surface I was going for. Everyone loved them. The only thing that I think they needed was more than a pinch of salt. I sprinkled some kosher salt over them after I put them on the pan, and it was perfect. Also, for our tastes, it was just the right amount of sweetness. I will be making these often.

Peas Amandine

Reviewed: Dec. 26, 2009
Amazing...I made this as a side dish for Christmas dinner, and it was very well received. I used fresh mushrooms instead of canned, but otherwise followed the recipe as written. Everyone loved it!

Apricot Tea Cookies

Reviewed: Dec. 16, 2009
These are very pretty and delicious cookies. I made the dough and refrigerated it overnight. I had no trouble rolling or handling it. The only thing I did differently was to use orange juice instead of water in the glaze.

Downeast Maine Pumpkin Bread

Reviewed: Nov. 1, 2009
Excellent pumpkin bread. I added chopped walnuts, raisins, and a teaspoon of vanilla, but otherwise, followed the recipe as written. It is very moist and has a nice spicy pumpkin flavor. I cut the recipe in half since I only had a 1/2 can of pumpkin left from another use. I made it into 8 mini loaves and a couple muffins. They were done in about 35 minutes. I'm going to buy another can of pumpkin and make more soon!

Peach Pie the Old Fashioned Two Crust Way

Reviewed: Jul. 27, 2009
I just didn't really care for this recipe very much. It didn't turn out runny, as others have said, but instead seemed to have too much thickening. I know there is always a difference in the fruit, and maybe my peaches weren't as juicy as others. I did use fresh peaches bought at a farm produce market. I also tossed them in the lemon juice and drained them in a colander, as others suggested. My biggest problem with the pie was the taste. I just didn't care for the overwhelming nutmeg taste. I love nutmeg, but it seemed to be a little too much for this pie. I love a good peach pie, and I think I could use this recipe as a base. But, next time, I'll omit the nutmeg and use my own judgment in deciding how much flour or cornstarch to add.

Grilled Brown Sugar Pork Chops

Reviewed: Jul. 21, 2009
Very good pork chops. I marinated my chops for about an hour before grilling, and they were very tender and juicy, not dry at all. We didn't think the sauce was too sweet, but my husband and I like that sort of thing. I'm also going to try this sauce on chicken, as others have done.
