Salsa Chicken

Reviewed: Jul. 22, 2015
These were wonderful and easy!! I used five skinless bone-in thighs that I had on hand and followed the recipe. I baked them at 385 degrees for about 50 minutes to reach the correct temp (high altitude). The husband loved them! Served with my Mexican rice recipe and corn. Great week day meal...but could be used for guests as well.

Sesame Pasta Chicken Salad

Reviewed: Jul. 21, 2015
This really has wonderful flavor!! I made the recipe as written except to reduce the oil to 1/3 cup and I used light olive oil. 5 stars for a great recipe!! But, my husband and I both agreed that it need more veggies! So, I added fresh peas from the garden, sliced carrots and sliced celery to the left overs the next day. I think any Asian style veggie would be good...broccoli, cabbage etc. We'll definitely make this again...perfect for using up left over roast whole chicken! And, it's filling enough to use as a main course with crusty bread.

Three Pepper Pasta Salad

Reviewed: Jun. 25, 2015
Definitely a 5 star recipe! As usual, it takes way more time than the recipe states when slicing and chopping. But, I followed the recipe as written except that I threw in a handful of Parmesan cheese, 'cause that's the way we like it!! Fresh Basil is the ticket...wouldn't even try it with dried Basil. I was also tempted to add some minced garlic...I'll try that next time. The husband thought it was awesome...and we have plenty of leftovers for tonight's dinner too, so we'll see how the cold/leftover turns out. Perfect recipe for hot summer days...and plenty for a potluck dish!

Kelsey's Favorite Stuffed Green Peppers

Reviewed: Jun. 16, 2015
These were GREAT...my company LOVED them!! I made a couple of changes with what I had on hand. I used 5 medium green peppers cut in half and seeded; par boiled for 5 minutes. I only had 1 lb of hamburger, so I added a bit of extra rice. Added a couple of dashes of hot sauce to give it a bit of a kick...but not too much. Topped with a pizza blend grated cheese. Will definitely make this again! PS: high altitude baked at 360 degrees for 30 minutes, added cheese and baked an additional 10.

Honey-Garlic Slow Cooker Chicken Thighs

Reviewed: May 29, 2015
Simple and delicious with ingredients always on hand!! I used 9 skinless, bone-in thighs with the recipes given amounts for the sauce...plenty of sauce!!! It was easy to take out the chicken when done, and pour the liquid into a small sauce pan...stirred in some cornstarch mixed in cold water to thicken. Served over Jasmine rice. Loved it!

Garlic Pork Roast

Reviewed: May 13, 2015
This was great even though I didn't have all the correct ingredients! I only has Russet potatoes on hand and just used 1 cup of chicken broth. I used spices that we like: 1 tesp garlic powder, 1 tesp seasoned salt, 1/2 tesp Italian seasoning and 1/4 tesp black pepper. Mixed the spices, rubbed into the meat (3 lb boneless shoulder roast) and seared the meat. Onions were on the bottom of the crock, then the meat with potatoes around the edges. I sprinkled a teaspoon of dried minced garlic over the meat and poured the broth along the sides. Cooked on low for 10 hours and it came out perfect! Would definitely like to try the sweet potatoes!

Pull-Apart Hot Cross Buns

Reviewed: Apr. 6, 2015
Because my bread maker broke, I used the comments by Red Hat Milli and the buns didn't rise well at all (I also used evaporated milk and that could be part of the issue). The flavor was awesome and everyone still loved them...but I will stick to the written directions next time and use my KitchenAid dough beater.

Chocolate Cornstarch Pudding

Reviewed: Mar. 15, 2015
Delicious...NOTHING like Jello instant pudding!! It's the real thing! I heaped my tablespoons of cocoa used brown sugar instead of white, and used 1 can of evaporated milk with the balance of 2% milk. I put the cocoa and corn starch through the sifter to remove any lumps. I used approx 1/8 cup corn starch, but should bump that up a bit next time. I stirred it constantly over medium heat JUST until boiling. Cooled the pan in ice water in the sink (stirring constantly) then transferred to a serving bowl and covered with plastic wrap "touching" the pudding to prevent the film from forming on top. Refrigerated for a few hours, dished it into individual servings and topped with whipped cream...wonderful dessert!

Chicken Biscuit Pie

Reviewed: Mar. 1, 2015
We thought this was a really tasty recipe...and I was THRILLED to not use fake canned soup or biscuits!! Followed the recipe to a T except to substitute real butter for shortening in the biscuit dough. I didn't have any problems with soggy dough. I put together the dry ingredients for the biscuits before doing anything else. Then when the chicken mixture was ready (and hot), I mixed the milk into the dry biscuit ingredients and quickly put on top and got it into the oven. Baked at 450F for 15 minutes (we are at high altitude so that works good here). Will definitely make this again...great way to use up left over roasted chicken.

Oven-Roasted Asparagus

Reviewed: Feb. 15, 2015
To save dirtying a bowl, just pile my asparagus on a cookie sheet and drizzle the oil over the top and add salt & pepper. I take two turners and toss the asparagus a bit to evenly coat; then spread them into one layer. Sprinkle on the Parmesan with a handful of almond slivers. Baked 12 minutes is good for us. The cheese gets sort of crusty...yum!

Country Apple Dumplings

Reviewed: Jan. 31, 2015
UPDATE 2/14/15: Followed adjustments by Canadiancook: 1) coat the apples in cinnamon and sugar before wrapping 2) Use 2 parts white to 1 part brown sugar in the sauce. simmer until it makes a thick, rich caramel and pulls away from the side of the pot. then add 1 tsp. vanilla along with the cinnamon. I only made half a batch for the husband and myself...the dish was not as "soupy" as the first time I made it. I think boiling the sugar/butter mixture is the key. I found that using a cheaper crescent roll was not as good as Pillsbury brand; Pillsbury stretches nicely to cover the ends of the apples where the cheap brand did not. My Original Review: Easy and delicious...followed the recipe except for adding 1 tsp vanilla with the cinnamon to the butter/sugar mixture when it had thickened. Wow...RICH...but tasty! I would like to try it next time by reducing to: 3/4 cup butter, 3/4 cup white sugar and 1/2 cup brown sugar.

Bacon and Potato Soup

Reviewed: Jan. 29, 2015
Duh people...this isn't milky and creamy because there isn't any MILK in the ingredient list!! OK, rant over. This soup's ingredient list is perfect as written!!!!!!! I changed the procedure a little bit: I cut the raw bacon into small pieces before frying them in the pan; drained on paper towel. Then I removed all but about 2 tablespoons of the bacon fat and sauteed the veggies in the fat then added the potatoes, stock & pepper. I let the soup simmer for about 45 minutes then used my immersible blender to make it a little smoother, but I did leave a fair amount of potato and carrot pieces. Then I added the bacon pieces. I served it into bowls with cheese on the side to add on the top of the soup. NO salt was added, and I used Knorr Chicken Stock...which was not low-salt. Next time I would use a low-salt stock or broth as the husband and I agreed that it was a bit salty (my own fault). The recipe is a keeper...thank you!

Kalua Pig in a Slow Cooker

Reviewed: Jan. 27, 2015
Definitely a keeper!! My roast was probably 4 1/2 to 5 lb boneless. My little town didn't have Hawaiian sea salt, so I used Real Salt (mined out of Utah; see realsalt.com). Delicious!! Done in 14 hours on low...turning 3 times. I then removed the roast to a large bowl to shred and remove fat pieces. The juice was put into a bowl and set in the freezer where the fat separated from the juice and was easily removed. The shredded pork and fat-free juice were put back into the slow cooker and simmered for another two hours then set to warm until dinner. Fantastic dinner...served on buns with BBQ sauce on the side with Chinese Cabbage Salad I from this site. Update 4/2015 I used a bone-in, 6 lb roast and it was still done in 14 hours turning only once.

Roasted Potatoes with Greens

Reviewed: Jan. 26, 2015
Absolutely delicious!! I decided to use one pan; the cast iron skillet. So, I browned the potatoes and garlic (had to add onion, because we have to have onion with potatoes!) in the butter. Then added the rosemary, salt and pepper. Stuck it in the oven, uncovered, for 25 minutes. Then added in the spinach and baked for another 5 minutes. Just excellent with grilled steaks and grilled cabbage! There was enough for steak, potatoes and eggs the next morning too!

Easy Tuna Casserole

Reviewed: Jan. 23, 2015
Excellent just as written! This was a quick and easy dinner after a busy day. I used 1 1/2 cups dry elbow macaroni to get 3 cups cooked. Served with fresh, steamed broccoli & carrots. Bakes nicely in the cast iron dutch oven too! The Husband said it was a keeper!

Caramelized Baked Chicken

Reviewed: Jan. 15, 2015
I used skinless boneless breast and followed the 3/4 ketchup, 3/4 honey, 1/2 soy sauce etc and boiled for 10 minutes...did not turn out thick and sticky...it was watery, but it was flavorful and went well over the Jasmine rice. IN ADDITION: There was still a lot of left over sauce that I kept in the fridge (I only cooked half the amt of chicken recipe called for)...used some of it as a marinade for pork loin steaks and they turned out delicious!
