Slow-Cooker Chicken Tortilla Soup
I literally crave this every few weeks! I agree with several other viewers' suggestions-- black beans are a must, use chicken broth instead of water, and frozen chicken breast works JUST FINE! We did try the homemade baked tortilla strips vs./ store-bought, and it's definitely worth the extra 5 min to make the homemade. Lastly, don't skimp on the fresh cilantro and sour cream. Works equally well for both a cozy winter brunch, and a summer evening light supper. YUM!

Kalamata Pork Tenderloin with Rosemary
Loooooved this. Note, it's very salty (which is a good thing in our family)-- so you can use the sauce sparingly on the pork. Don't ignore the lemon zest, as I almost did. It really adds a great dimension.

Papaya Bruschetta
I HATE papaya, but we got some beautiful papayas as part of a Harry & David gift and I didn't want to waste them. This was surprisingly good! The tomato and vinegar offset the sweetness nicely. I recommend starting with no sugar, but add gradually to taste. I was also very unsure of what the papaya seeds would add-- I didn't know you could eat them. Our learning: yes, they're great as used here, but don't eat them alone! ;-) My daughter & I each crunched one before adding to the recipe. Don't try this at home. A little like crunching a black peppercorn. But in the blender as part of the dressing, they add a very unusual peppery flavor, like cracked pepper. For those who had problems with watery-ness: brush your baguette slices with a touch of olive oil (or spray lightly) and bake 5 min so they're good & crunchy, and definitely drain the salsa before spooning on. Thanks for a unique, light app that will be used several times this summer!
