Pistachio Cream Cheese Fingers

Reviewed: Jan. 2, 2011
Found this recipe while searching for recipes which included pistachio pudding mix in the ingredients. They sounded good and I decided to make them as part of my Christmas cookie baking this year. They were a hit! My husband and mother loved them. I used a few suggestions from others and used almond extract instead of vanilla, doubled the amount of pudding mix, added green food coloring gel, and some crushed unsalted roasted pistachios to the dough. I used a cookie press to form the fingers. After baking and cooling the "fingers", I drizzled melted dark chocolate over them. then sprinkled and lightly pressed crushed pistachios onto the warm chocolate drizzle. The were so pretty and tasty, and made an abundance of cookies for giving and enjoying.

Slow-Cooker Chicken Tortilla Soup

Reviewed: Oct. 19, 2010
Just made this again last night and I love this soup recipe! It is one of my favorites, so easy to make, but tastes like a lot of work! I made a few suggested changes; added 1 can of drained black beans, use diced canned tomatoes instead of whole tomatoes, also use 2 cans of chicken broth instead of the water. I garnish it with corn tortilla strips, shredded cheddar cheese, and sour cream. Thanks for sharing this wonderful recipe.

Kalua Pig in a Slow Cooker

Reviewed: Sep. 25, 2010
Wow this recipe is awesome! I have made it twice following the original recipe with great success. The Hawaiian sea salt can be a challenge to buy locally if you live in the sticks like I do. But I have been able to find it when traveling to major urban areas. One could also find it on the internet if not available locally. Since there are only two of us at home now, I freeze portions in pint containers for later use. Followed someone's suggestion of reheating the pork with bottled BBQ sauce and serving on buns for great BBQ Pork Sandwiches. My husband thinks the BBQ Pork made from this is better than what is served at local BBQ venders and we live in one of the self proclaimed BBQ capitols.

Charley's Slow Cooker Mexican Style Meat

Reviewed: Jul. 10, 2009
I first tried this recipe last year. I used suggested changes from others, substituting crushed fresh garlic for garlic powder and adding a can of Rotel tomatoes & chili peppers. My husband cannot get enough of this and I make a batch every other month! Since it is just for the two of us, I divide it into freezer containers for future meals throughout the month (it freezes and reheats wonderfully). I have also prepared it using pork roast or boneless, skinless chicken breasts and it is great with those meats also. This is a favorite and there is always a container or two in the freezer at our house now.

Fish Tacos

Reviewed: Jul. 8, 2009
I had downloaded, printed, and saved this recipe last year because it sounded interesting. I finally prepared it this past weekend and am sorry I did not prepare it sooner! It was absolutely awesome! My husband loved it also and it is now a favorite which I will be preparing often in the future. I followed the recipe exactly as posted here, with no changes, and would not change a thing as it is perfection! To those of you using prebreaded fish you do not know what you are missing! Thank you, thank you, thank you for sharing this wonderful recipe!

Bohemian Pork Roast

Reviewed: Dec. 28, 2007
After years of unsuccessfully trying to duplicate a traditional Bohemian Pork Roast with gravy & dumplings Christmas dinner I had with a family of Bohemian ancestry back in the early 1970's, I stumbled across this recipe. I prepared it this Christmas along with gravy made from the pan juices and Spaetzle. My quest for the perfect Christmas Pork Roast from my past has now been ended. The only change I made to the original recipe was the addition of garlic powder in the rub. It was a huge hit with my family and I thank you so much for helping perfect my Christmas dinner. I will use this recipe for the rest of my life and hopefully pass it on to my children.

Slow Cooker Adobo Chicken

Reviewed: Dec. 14, 2007
I had always heard how good Adobo Chicken was, but never tried it. I thought this recipe would be a good place to start and I was right! I followed the recipe using some reviewers suggestions of reducing soy sauce to 1/2 cup, adding a bay leaf and using red wine vinegar. I served it with steamed brown rice to soak up the heavenly juices and a nice green salad. This was so good and a huge hit with my husband. He said this is a definite keeper and requested that I make often! I agree, and will make it often as it is so easy to prepare, tasty, healthy and an economical dish as well.

Chantal's New York Cheesecake

Reviewed: Nov. 14, 2007
Wonderful cheesecake recipe! I made it this morning and following your directions with the exception of adding some finely chopped pecan and cinnamon to the crust and 1/2 tsp of lemon extract to filling. It turned out beautiful, no cracks, lovely texture and divine taste. My husband who is a big NY Cheesecake lover was impressed. Thanks for sharing this recipe, it is a definate keeper!

Hungarian Pork Chops

Reviewed: Nov. 8, 2007
I only gave this recipe 4 stars as I have mixed feelings about this recipe. I followed the original recipe, even though I was leary of adding the sour cream at the beginning of simmering, and it turned out well (no curdling). I served it with homemade Amish egg noodles. While my husband and I liked it and ate it all in one sitting we both agreed it was not something we would want again. I think there was some flavor that was "off" in the sauce to our tastes, but can't figure out what it was exactly. Perhaps if I had substitled some tomato paste for the ketchup and sauteed some onions and/or mushrooms as suggested by others we may have liked it better. Still it was a good recipe, easy to fix with readily available ingredients.

Stuffed Cabbage Rolls

Reviewed: Nov. 5, 2007
I have been making these cabbage rolls for years, although I have always baked mine, covered, in a 350 degree oven for an hour. I also add a 1/2 tsp garlic powder to the meat mixture for extra flavor. It is my youngest daughters' favorite dish. We like to serve them with homemade mashed potatoes.

Cream Cheese Kolacky

Reviewed: Nov. 5, 2007
My mother received this recipe decades ago at a Christmas cookie exchange. It has become a family tradition for 3 generations now. It is my most requested recipe and I get in trouble if I do not make them at Christmas! Now I am looking forward to trying some of the other filling suggestions written in this recipe's reviews.

Rugelach

Reviewed: Nov. 5, 2007
I found this recipe years ago and make it almost every Christmas. A family favorite. I also add mini-morsal semi-sweet chocolate chips to the cinnammon sugar mixture which really adds a new dimension to these great cookies.
