Chicken Enchilada Soup III

Reviewed: Jan. 4, 2014
We just made this tonight, and it was lovely. I think this is one of those soups that is easy to toss together, but gets most of it's flavor from the garnishes you choose. I did substitute about 1.25 lbs of frozen pork for the chicken (I was looking for a recipe to help use up some of the boneless pork I snagged for 60 cents a lb!), and tossed everything into my crock pot instead. After about 6 hours I shredded the pork and put it back in for another 20 minutes on high, the same time I added the masa. I only used half a cup of masa, but I mixed it into my cup of water very slowly- no grittiness. We used the cheese as a garnish instead of adding it to the pot. We topped with cheese, crema mexicana, and crushed tortilla chips. When the crema got stirred into the soup it came out very velvety. I added corn, black beans and some green chilies to my bowl because I am the only one who likes them in my family. All together, it's any easy base soup that you can change the flavor of by changing your toppings. Definitely worth a try.

The breading had almost no flavor. Very bland.

Naan

Reviewed: Nov. 29, 2012
Kind of a pain to make, but worth it. These were very good. However this makes a large batch, more than we wanted to eat for one meal, and they aren't so great reheated.

This came out very well. My husband thought it was tasty and delicious, and he is a very picky eater. I wasn't thrilled, but it was very good.

Lime Cilantro Cauliflower "Rice"

Reviewed: Nov. 29, 2012
What a great idea! I am a fan of cilantro lime rice, and I love cauliflower. This came out great. Even my husband (super picky, and doesn't care for vegetables, hates cauliflower) thought this was rice. Because he saw me cutting the cauliflower he knew there was cauliflower in it, but he thought it had rice too! Next time when I make it I will make it when he can't see it, and see if he can tell!

Spicy Basil Chicken

Despite being rather heavy on the onions, I really enjoyed this dish. I served it with jasmine rice. It was fragrant and tasty.

Roast Sticky Chicken-Rotisserie Style

Reviewed: Oct. 15, 2012
The seasoning on the chicken itself was not very special, but the slow cooking made for an amazing moist and fall apart chicken. I didn't realize that chicken that tastes like what I get from the deli could be made at home with out special equipment. I was very pleased with this recipe, as was my family.

Hawg-N-Dogs

Reviewed: Oct. 15, 2012
My husband and my son really liked this, but I think I would rather have my bacon on the side. I think it was too much work for some hot dogs, but it was pretty tasty.

Grilled Chicken Adobo

Reviewed: Oct. 15, 2012
Very tasty. Just the right combination of flavors, without being overpowering. I used boneless skinless thigh meat, and made foil packets to bake in the oven. Came out moist, and flavorful.

Pumpkin-Pecan Braid

Reviewed: Oct. 15, 2012
I tried this on a whim, and was very pleased with the outcome. I had almonds on hand, and used those instead of pecans. Minimal prep, and a wonderful return! You must love pumpkin. My 6 year old and I loved it. It does not reheat very well, so try to enjoy it the same day.

General Tsao's Chicken II

Reviewed: Sep. 26, 2012
This was wonderful! This was at least as good as what we have gotten at restaurants. We didn't have a cup of cornstarch, so we just used flour to coat the chicken, but it turned out great. I was hesitant to fry the chicken twice, but it really made a difference on how crispy it came out. The sauce was a little too orange flavored, but they may have been my husband "helping" me. Definitely a keeper, and we will be making this again. It's a new favorite in our house.

Pumpkin Brioche

Reviewed: Aug. 28, 2012
The dough came out with an almost bitter taste, and the texture was no where near "luxuriant." It just had the same texture as regular quick bread. Quite a let down. I will not be making this again.

Brigadeiro

Reviewed: Aug. 22, 2012
Super easy to make. I was expecting something like truffles, but this comes out like a chocolate flavored caramel. I left half the batch regular and rolled in cocoa powder and chopped cashews. The other half I mixed toasted coconut into the "dough", then rolled balls in toasted coconut. I bet this would be delicious dipped in chocolate, too! Great recipe!

Blue Cheese Crusted Filet Mignon with Port Wine Sauce

Reviewed: Jul. 24, 2012
My husband gave this 5 stars, I would give it 3, so we will split the difference and call it 4. It was tasty, but the blue cheese overpowered the beef, and I didn't like the texture of the crumbs.
