Italian Sausage Soup

Reviewed: Nov. 7, 2010
Delicious! I added an onion while browning the meat, and added some cheese tortellini right at the end. My 18 month old loved it! Definitely making this again!

Warm Sweet Potato Salad

Reviewed: Dec. 25, 2008
I had to leave out the red onion because I didn't have any, but followed the recipe other than that. It was good warm, but it was great cold! The flavors really had time to meld, and I don't think that it needed the red onions after all, it was "oniony" enough. Next time I make this I'm going to try it with just the sweet potatoes ,yummy!

Zesty Slow Cooker Chicken Barbecue

Reviewed: Nov. 5, 2008
There is no need to change this recipe at all, seriously. I cooked my frozen chicken breasts on high for 3 1/2 hours, shredded them and then put them back in the slow cooker for 1 hour on low and it turned out perfect. I did use good sauce though, Sweet Baby Ray's. Yummy!

Summer Beer II

Reviewed: Jun. 25, 2008
We took this to a cookout this past weekend and everybody LOVED it! It's so good on a hot day, but one word of advice, if you're making it for a crowd, I'd double, or even triple the recipe! You won't be sorry.

Irish Lamb Stew

Reviewed: Mar. 18, 2008
This stew was outstanding! The only things I changed were the amount of lamb, 3.5 lbs., the amount of bacon, 3/4 lb., and I used Guinness in place of the water and wine. Everything else was the same and it was to die for! Everyone raved about it, even our best friend who's been to Ireland and is a cook himself said that it was superb and had seconds, and made me pack some up for him to take home! The only thing it needed at the end was some freshly craked pepper. YUMMY!

Pecan Pumpkin Biscuits

Reviewed: Jan. 23, 2008
I accidentally burned my pecans while toasting and went ahead without them, and the biscuits were still amazing! They just needed a little extra flour, I guess because of the lack of nuts.

Peanut Butter Kiss Cookies

Reviewed: Jan. 21, 2008
Super easy, super good! I did the "3 different types of sugar" thing, except the amounts weren't exact. Probably 1/4 cup brown, 1/8 cup powdered and the rest white splenda. They came out chewy and tasty. They kept their shape too, and I did have to cook them about 13 minutes instead of the 10. So, the moral of the story, as long as you have "some" brown and powdered sugar along with the white, the cookies won't be too greasy or grainy.

Tan

Reviewed: Jan. 7, 2008
This is SO GOOD! I would have never thought to do this, but it is terrific! When summer comes around I'll try strawberries, yummy. *Update* I have since put these apples on a bed of mixed greens with shaved parmesan cheese on top for a knockout of a salad! Try it, you'll like it!

Buttery Cooked Carrots

Reviewed: Jan. 5, 2008
This was good with a couple of revisions. I cooked the carrots in a little water until they were fork tender and all of the water was gone, and then added the butter and sugar right to the pot with the carrots. I also added a small pinch of allspice and a very small pinch of sea salt. I cooked all of that on low until the sauce had reduced by half. It was super tasty and not runny, just good!

North Carolina-Style Pulled Pork

Reviewed: Dec. 19, 2007
Okay, I'm a born and raised NC girl. I've been away for 4 years and crave BBQ daily. I decided to make this to see what I got. I used 4 pounds of pork shoulder, boneless, so I halved the recipe. I did the rub exactly as is and marinated it overnight. The next morning, I made up the sauce exactly as written, halved for the amount of pork. After tasting it, I decided it needed more brown sugar so I added 2 more tablespoons. I put half of the sauce and the pork in my slow cooker and cooked it for 8 hours. I then took the pork out, let it cool and then shredded it. (It was already falling apart.) I used a large spoon to take all of the fatty oil off of the good bits in the bottom of the slow cooker, and then I added the rest of the sauce, in addition with about 1/4 cup more brown sugar. I then put the pork back in. That is EXACTLY what I grew up eating, and my husband, a NC boy, completely agrees! I am so happy, I can't begin to tell you!!! Thank you SO much for this recipe!

Award Winning Soft Chocolate Chip Cookies

Reviewed: Dec. 19, 2007
I'm not sure why these cookies have gotten a few bad reviews, they aren't cakey at all. In fact, they are the best chocolate chip cookies I have ever had! The batter, before I cooked it, tasted like the best vanilla ice cream you can get! Yummy! Mine also took 12 minutes to get to a light golden brown. I did adjust the temp., I uped it 10 degrees to compensate for my higher altitude. Thank you for this WONDERFUL recipe! ****** Just a little tip... don't skimp on your vanilla extract, get the real stuff. I promise it makes a difference. Happy baking!

Amazingly Easy Irish Soda Bread

Reviewed: Dec. 15, 2007
This is the best soda bread I've ever had. Even better than our beloved local Irish pub. I basted it about 5 times during baking, and each time I sprinkled a little sugar on top too! It was moist and just sweet enough. It even tasted better the next day straight out of the refrigerator! ***Update*** I made this again for St. Pat's and decided to add a touch more salt, 1/3 cup of sugar instead of 1/4 and I added a touch more buttermilk to get it a little more moist. I baked it at 340 degrees for 50 minutes basting it 3 times and each time I sprinkled sugar all over the top again. It was perfect and everyone raved about it! The crust was crunchy and sugary and the inside was moist and sweet! *Update #2* Use Kerrygold Irish butter in place of the margarine if you can find it, it's fantastic!!! Really puts it over the top.

White Chili with Ground Turkey

Reviewed: Dec. 12, 2007
This was super! Very different, but super. I kept to the recipe, mostly. I love cinnamon so I doubled that, and I added an extra teaspoon of cumin. The green chilies were hot instead of mild, and I used 4 cups of the broth instead of 5. I let it simmer for 2 hours and then served it on top of crushed tortilla chips, added extra cheese and a dollop of sour cream on top. It was even seasonal because of the cinnamon, SO GOOD!!! I will definitely make this again!

Slow Cooker Thanksgiving Turkey

Reviewed: Nov. 22, 2007
This was wonderful! With it just being my husband and myself, I used 2 pounds of boneless turkey breast tenderloins. After reading the reviews I decided to put my own spin on things to make sure that it stayed moist. Along with the gravy, flour, wor. sauce, garlic and pepper, I added a 1 1/2 cups of chicken broth to cover the turkey completely. (I did leave out the bacon, didn't think it needed it.) I then added 5 leaves of fresh sage and 6 sprigs of fresh thyme. I cooked it on low for 4 hours and it was done, but since we weren't ready to eat yet I turned it to warm for another 4 hours. It turned out SOOOOO moist and juicy, and tasty! I will definitely be making this all year round!

Creamy Pesto Shrimp

Reviewed: Nov. 11, 2007
This was SO good!!! I did do as others had stated and tried to make it a little healthier. I used whole wheat pasta, half and half and I also used the entire 7ozs. of the pesto for extra taste. Everything else was exactly by the recipe, and it couldn't have been better! I will be making this again, soon!

All-Around Good Smoothie

Reviewed: Oct. 30, 2007
This smoothie is great. The only thing I'm doing different is using flax seed oil, a couple of teaspoons, and it is wonderful! It really does keep me full for several hours. Thanks for this great recipe!

Holiday Chicken Salad

Reviewed: Oct. 13, 2007
Hands down, this is the best chicken salad I have ever had! I only changed a couple of things. I didn't have any green onions so I used half of a small white onion that I minced, and I didn't have any cranberries so I used just a little honey for sweetness and it turned out wonderful! Will definitely be making this again, soon!
