Chicken Chimi in the Oven

Reviewed: Jan. 8, 2013
I cooked this for the second time today, minus the water, and it turned out great. The first time I used 8-inch tortillas & 1 was an ample serving. I accidentally bought 10-inch tortillas which makes for a huge chimichanga, so half of one will be a meal. On the back of the chi-chi's tortilla package was this same recipe including the blending instruction. Chi-chis called for 1/3 c chili powder & 4 T water which is too much. Jeri, I think chi-chis ”borrowed” your delicious recipe! You ought to call them up and ask for a cut of their profits.

Beef Stew IV

Reviewed: Dec. 24, 2010
This is a great recipe. Instead of adding beef bullion or beef broth I just added about 3/4 pound more beef since the first time I made the recipe there didn't seem to be enough beef in it. I also added an additional tablespoon of Worcestershire sauce the second time around and that seemed to flavor up the recipe a bit. Also, I added A LOT more vegetables than the recipe indicated, with the addition of PEAS! The peas added a kind of sweet tone to the stew. Another thing I did on the 3rd making was brown the beef until it was dark brown which deepened the overall color of the stew. What should be noted: Do not cook this recipe in a slow-cooker unless you have 7 hours wait time to tender up the beef. This recipe works best stove-top.

Four Egg Yellow Cake

Reviewed: Feb. 14, 2008
I'm a big fan of cakes and baking them and I'm pleased with this recipe. What I baked didn't come out dense or like cornbread, mine came out fluffy and light. My cake did rise unlike what happened with negative reviewers. I did tweak the recipe a bit by: adding an extra quarter to half teaspon of additional baking powder; adding 1 extra teaspoon of vanilla; exchanging lard with 2 sticks of butter; replacing 2 eggs with a half cup of egg substitute; and, reducing the sugar to 1 1/2 cups (I don't like my cakes too sweet). When I beat the butter and sugar together I made sure it was fluffy and light as I do with most recipes that requires creaming butter with sugar. I'll have to agree that there was an eggy smell in the kitchen afterwards so when I make this recipe again I'll reduce the amount of eggs used by using 1/2 cup egg substitute and 1 egg.
