Slow-Cooker Chicken Tortilla Soup

Reviewed: Oct. 23, 2012
One of my favorite soups ever! I have made this several times, and it is delish! The first time I made it, I mistakenly picked up lemon pepper frozen chicken breasts at the store instead of plain. I used them anyway as it was all I had, and it was amazing. Now, I usually keep some in the freezer just for this recipe, but it is still good with plain chicken as well. The only change I make is to leave out the cilantro until the end. I use it as a topping instead. I sometimes add a can of black beans, too. Following one reviewers advice, I top with cheese, avocado, a dollop of sour cream, cilantro and lime juice. Instead of making the tortillas, I purchase a bag of the salad topper tortilla strips found in the produce section at my store.

The best muffins I have ever made! I took them to bunco tonight and everyone loved them, and most went back for a 2nd muffin. Delicious! I made the exactly as directed and they were perfect! Will definitely be making them again... And soon I hope.

Reviewed: Sep. 29, 2008
This was pretty good...but way too much celery...the flavor was overpowering. Next time I will half the amount of celery called for in this recipe!

Sausage Balls

Reviewed: Aug. 3, 2007
these were pretty good, but not my favorite. of course, it may have had something to do with the fact that my husband bought italian flavored sausage instead of the regular. i'll probably try them again and see how they turn out.

Portobello Bellybuttons

Reviewed: Aug. 3, 2007
This was a great easy meal. I fixed portobello sandwiches earlier this week and needed to find some way to use up the leftovers. I halved the amount of button mushrooms and added about a cup of steamed asparagus to the dish. It was delicious. We'll definitely make this again soon!

Coconut Shrimp I

Reviewed: Jul. 16, 2007
This was fantastic! I always order Coconut Shrimp when we go to my favorite restaurant. I have never attempted to make it at home before, but it was almost as good the "real" thing!

Creamy Chicken Breasts

Reviewed: Mar. 22, 2007
Man! These were good! Very moist and tender. I honestly thought the marinade sounded kind of weird, but after reading all of the wonderful reviews I decided to give it a try. I am so glad I did - I'll definitely be making this regularly.

Balsamic Roasted Red Potatoes

Reviewed: Jan. 18, 2007
Pretty good. I'll definitely make them again. I had to cook the potatoes about 15 minutes longer than listed, but they were kind of big.

Marinated Pork Tenderloin

Reviewed: Jan. 18, 2007
This was great! I had 2 1bs of tenderloin so I had to double the recipe. I only had about 1/2 the amount of soy sauce I needed. So instead of doubling the vegetable oil, I added 3 T. of Sesame Oil to add more flavor and 3 T. of vegetable oil. Marinated 2 hrs and cooked according to directions. Very tasty. Will definitely make again. FYI: In my local grocery store they only have HUGE bottles of apricot nectar, no small cans as this recipe calls for. But I like to make an Apricot Vinigarette from this site in the Cranberry-Pear Tossed Salad recipe. If anyone has to buy the bigger bottles, you can use up the extra by doing that.

Lemon and Cilantro Shrimp

Reviewed: Jan. 10, 2007
This was really good. I served it over linguini. I only had 4 lemons, but that gave it plenty of flavor and I added 1 clove of chopped garlic to the pan. It's a really great light dish that doesn't overpower the shrimp. Definitely a recipe to keep on hand. For a little extra flair, I am thinking that next time I may use limes instead of lemons and serve over rice with MARGARITAS! Yummy!

Cranberry-Pear Tossed Salad

Reviewed: Jan. 3, 2007
DELICIOUS! I used fresh raspberries instead of dried cranberries (most of my family won't eat the cranberries) and took this for Christmas dinner. It was a HUGE hit - almost everyone went back for seconds.

Blue Cheese Pear Salad

Reviewed: Jan. 3, 2007
This was delicious, but I did make a few changes to the recipe. I used candied pecans instead of the toasted walnuts and used the apricot dressing from the Cranberry-Pear Tossed Salad recipe from this site. I took it for Christmas dinner and I think almost everyone came back for seconds. It was a huge hit!

Quick and Easy Shrimp Fajitas

Reviewed: Jan. 3, 2007
This was really good and really easy, and that makes it a winner in my book. I mixed my raw shrimp with about 1/4 cup of cilantro and the juice of 1 lime and let it marinate while I cut and cooked the vegetables. Then prepared it exactly as directed. I served it with whole wheat tortillas, spanish rice and chips and salsa. Hy hubby loved it! Definitely one to make again.

Janet's Rich Banana Bread

Reviewed: Dec. 8, 2006
This was a really good recipe. I used 3 bananas instead of 2 and mashed them as so many reviewers recommended. Other than that, I followed the recipe exactly. I think it is really good banana bread - it just lacks that WOW-factor which is why I gave it 4 stars instead of 5.
