Texas Caviar with Avocado

Reviewed: Jan. 6, 2008
This was excellent; quickly wiped out at work, and the recipe was requested by many. I made a few changes- I substituted one can of black beans for one of the black eyed peas, used one can of Ro-Tel and one can of chili-ready tomatoes in place of fresh because I can't find good winter tomatoes here, and added cumin. Other than that I stuck to the recipe, and even 6 days later it's still quite tasty. I made up a burrito with leftovers, and even my EXTREMELY picky 15 month old keeps coming up to me with mouth open for more. Here's how I did it: I took a tortilla, and tore up a slice of cheese and placed 1/4 of it in small pieces down one edge of the tortilla, with the rest near the middle. Microwave 15 seconds to soften. Take 2 T. of the caviar and use a slotted spoon to drain the extra liquid off, and put down the middle of the tortilla. Microwave 30 seconds, add a bit of sour cream, and roll up burrito-style, using the cheese along the edge to seal at the end. YUM!

Sloppy Joes II

Reviewed: May 26, 2006
These were FANTASTIC ~ much better than a pre-made mix. Cheap and easy, too. I leave out the green pepper, and it was really good wrapped up with cheese in a tortilla and then warmed the next day. Thanks for sharing!

Calabacitas Con Queso - Zucchini with Cheese

Reviewed: Mar. 26, 2006
This was fantastic! I didn't have everything on hand, so I had to substitute and used frozen corn for the canned, drained canned diced tomatoes for the fresh, and about 1/2 pound of shreeded Montery jack, and 1/4 pound shredded Mexican mixture (cheddar/M. jack/queso/asedero). I also added a dash of Adobo seasoning and some roasted garlic. Due to my entree taking longer than I thought, I cooked the vegetables as directed, then mixed in the cheese and finished it like a casserole in the oven. This dish will be put into regular rotation. It may be fattening with all that cheese, but the taste is well worth it! Thanks for sharing. :)

Chocolate Banana Bread

Reviewed: Mar. 12, 2006
Heaven, pure and simple. Very rich and cake-like. I made mini-loaves and gave them to neighbors as New Years gifts, and they were perfect. Thanks so much for the recipe!

Pork with Peaches Stir-Fry

Reviewed: Nov. 1, 2004
I followed the recipe exactly, and neither my husband or I liked it in the least bit. The peaches gave it a really kinky flavor and a bad aftertaste. I was disappointed after the great reviews.....it sounded good, but just didn't fly for us.

Pork Tenderloin

Reviewed: Nov. 1, 2004
Excellent dish. I did sear the tenderloin on all sides before baking, which I do anytime I cook this cut of meat. This will go into my regular rotation. I served it with Orzo with Mushrooms and Walnuts from this site, and it was fantastic.

California Chicken Stir Fry

Reviewed: Sep. 6, 2004
Easy and fabulous! I doubled the sauce, used a larger can of pineapple, thickened it a bit with cornstarch, and used fresh vegetables. This will be served frequently at our house. Excellent over chow mein noodles.

Open-Faced Broiled Roast Beef Sandwich

Reviewed: May 30, 2004
This sandwich was outstanding, and very easy to make. The only thing I did differently was to add a bit of olive oil and vinegar on top of the tomato, and to put the onions on top of the cheese-- the broiler carmelizes them. This, and variations of it, will become a part of our regular rotation on those "I don't feel like cooking" nights. Thanks for sharing!

BBQ Pork for Sandwiches

Reviewed: Apr. 6, 2004
One of the easiest and best recipes in my collection, and so delicious that I will search no more for a bbq pork recipe. It's very versatile and can be adapted to your personal taste just by the sauce you choose to use. I was pressed for time, so I cooked/shredded it one night, and baked it with the sauce the next. Thanks for sharing what will become a standard dish in our house!

Great Hot Crab Dip

Reviewed: Mar. 8, 2004
Excellent! Gourmet taste with simple prep. I used 1 1/2 cans of crabmeat, since fresh is difficult and expensive to come by here in southwest Missouri. Thanks for sharing-- this will become standard appetizer fare in our house.

Chicken Enchiladas V

Reviewed: Dec. 28, 2003
This is an absolutely fabulous recipe. I decreased the sour cream to one cup, added a bit of cumin seasoning, and increased the cheese to 2 cups. I also pour cream or half & half over the top before adding the cheese. Leftovers are as good as the first day!
