Easy Chicken Posole

Reviewed: Sep. 3, 2014
This is so easy! I've been to lots of Mexican parties and eaten posole and this tastes exactly the same. My husband is from Mexico and he is hard to please when it comes to making authentic Mexican dishes. He loved this and it has become a regular in our dinner rotation. The only thing I do differently is to use chicken thighs (the dark meat has more flavor) and I reduce the chili powder. I boil the thighs, then remove them when they are done, pour the remaining liquid through a strainer and save the broth. I add it back where the recipe calls for it, adding more water and some chicken bouillon if needed. I don't want it too spicy because of the kiddos so usually one, maybe two tablespoons of chili powder is sufficient. Also, I'm usually in a hurry so I've never let it simmer 90 minutes. Maybe 20 max. We garnish with chopped radishes, lettuce, fresh squeezed lime, and sometimes crushed tostadas. One of my favorite meals, and easy and quick to prepare.

Easiest Peanut Butter Fudge

Reviewed: Sep. 3, 2014
I don't make this very often because I can't stop eating it. I don't usually like peanut butter but this stuff is addicting! And it is so easy to prepare so I have to make extra efforts to control myself and not give into making it whenever I need a sugar fix. Recipe is great as is, but I have been in a bind and had to use canola oil instead of butter and it tasted just as good.

Sweet Potato Bread

Reviewed: Sep. 3, 2014
I've made this recipe many times and it is always perfect. Moist and delicious and not overly sweet. I originally used this recipe because I was given a huge bag of sweet potatoes and was looking for recipes I could use them in. Now I buy sweet potatoes just to make this bread.

Spiced Raisin Mini Muffins

Reviewed: Sep. 3, 2014
I've been using this recipe for years and they are one of my son's favorite breakfasts– he always requests it when I ask him what he wants. I have never used a pot, just mix all wet ingredients in a bowl, and add the combined dry ingredients to it, they turn out just fine. Also, I've never done mini muffins. I just make regular size and it takes 16-17 minutes in the oven. I used nutmeg instead of cloves for a long time, but I've tried the cloves and they are great as well. Also, I've used half white, half whole wheat flour and half white, half brown sugar and they were wonderful so I usually do it that way now. I've never used the glaze and they are delicious without it. I usually double the recipe and they are still gone in a day. My kids love them.

Cinnamon Belgian Waffles

Reviewed: Oct. 6, 2013
These were delicious! I ignored the other reviews about the servings and doubled the recipe anyway (for me, my hubby, and 3 kids). I would say that was a mistake because it made so many (15.5 regular size waffles. Yes there was a "half"- I wasn't about to let that last little bit go to waste!), but I couldn't stop eating it and in the end there were only 2.5 left. I ate four and had to stop myself. My 5 year old ate 2.5, which is a LOT for her. She usually barely eats 1. The only thing I would change is to add more cinnamon. I could barely taste it which I thought was odd since they are called "Cinnamon Belgian Waffles." Next time I'll definitely put more.
