Elbows Salad with Avocado, Tomato and Mozzarella

Reviewed: Jul. 1, 2014
i made this as directed. It was a little bland for our tastes, so the second time I made this, I added some balsamic vinegar. I used about a third of a cup. I also added 1/2 teas of cayenne pepper to the dressing. We like things hot as we are both a couple of chili heads.

Jalapeno Strawberry Jam

Reviewed: Jun. 30, 2014
This will be the second year that I have made this recipe exactly as detailed. I did double it this year so that I would have enough to give as gifts. I used about 3/4 of the seeds. Even my father who hates hotly spiced food will eat this.

Creamy Au Gratin Potatoes

Reviewed: Apr. 1, 2014
I followed the recipe exactly and it was very good resulting in the above rating. My better half really liked it a lot, but we decided to increase the sauce by 1/2 as suggested by other viewers. I live at 5500 feet. I have not been making this type of recipe since the potatoes always tasted a little bony. I got around this by microwaving my potatoes for 3 minutes and let them cool before slicing. I use my mandolin to slice my precooked potatoes as I find that there is more even cooking. It was very good. The second time I made this, I added some chopped green chili and some cut up ham. This made an awesome dinner for the two of us. So yummy!! I plan on trying it in the crockpot as others have suggested. One last thing...I make my cheese sauce in the microwave. I melt the butter in the container for 1 minute, add the flour and seasonings, whisking the butter and flour together. I then microwave that for one minute. Lastly I add the milk and slowly whisk that in. I then microwave this on high at 2 minute intervals for about six minutes until nice and thick. I then add the cheese and stir to incorporate. If the cheese is a little slow to melt, I will stick it back into the microwave for about 20 seconds. I do this in a large 4 cup microwave safe measuring cup which allows me to pour it onto the sliced potatoes. If you want to cook your onions, add them to the melted butter and microwave for about two minutes before adding the milk.

Original Mexican Shrimp Cocktail

Reviewed: Mar. 31, 2014
This is a great recipe. I have made a similar one before but could not find the recipe. The only change is that I made mine without ketchup but used chili sauce. This is great with either saltines or tortilla chips.

Charley's Slow Cooker Mexican Style Meat

Reviewed: Feb. 2, 2014
I made this recipe 3x now. We are chili heads so I made sure that everything was hot in the spice area like hot green chili. Since it is just the two of us, I freeze a good portion of this and it freezes beautifully. I make homemade tortillas from this site and we eat a lot of this with avocado cheese and chopped up jalapeños.I did find that putting the meat back into the crockpot after shredding and cook it for another hour as some suggested adds to the flavor. If you like hotter food,Try it you'll like it.

Slow Cooker Beef Stew I

Reviewed: Jan. 9, 2014
This is an awesome recipe! I have made it twice. The first time I followed the recipe to the letter. It was outstanding! since we like more veggies, the second time I added twice as much, added more beef broth, 1/2 cup of wine and a 4 oz can of hot Hatch green chilis! We live in NM and like chili in everything, except ice cream!

Peanut Butter Balls II

Reviewed: Nov. 29, 2013
I have made this recipe several times. My significant other loves these and for some reason by the time I am ready to make my gift trays around Christmas, half of what I made has disappeared. I checked his breath....Hmmmm. Anyway, I use candy melts for my chocolate. I use Merken's brand that can be found at various candy making websites. I dip mine in either milk or dark chocolate. Then when that chocolate has set up, I melt a few red and green pieces. I put one color in a small zippable sandwich bag and melt them in the microwave. One minute, smoosh the melts together and then microwave for 15 second intervals, smooshing after eat until the chocolate is melted and smooth. I then cut a "teeny" hole out of one corner and then put stripes on the balls. I have also, when the balls were still damp and shiny have added cake decorations such as colored crystal sugar and other cake decorations. Easy and good.

Bacon Wrapped Barbeque Shrimp

Reviewed: Nov. 18, 2013
I did not follow the recipe to the letter... For the barbecuing seasoning I used Penzey's 3000 barbecue spice blend. I put about 1 T on top of 13 (20-25) shrimp. I cut the butterfly deeper and stuck a sliver of jalapeno and then added a sliver of pepper jack cheese and wrapped with bacon. I only had thick bacon, so I nuked that for about 2.5 minutes to get it soft and pliable and used only 1/2 a piece of bacon for each shrimp. I then closed up my package with a toothpick. I broiled the shrimp for about 8 minutes. Armando, my other half, stated that this was a 9.5 out of 10 meal!! We served this with vegetable rice, tossed salad and some warm bread! Yummy!!!

Alabama Fire Crackers - Cammy

Reviewed: Oct. 15, 2013
I am curing some crackers as I type. I did not read the recipe correctly before going to the store. I ended up with a package of ranch and a package of Italian. So, I added both to the mix. I also added garlic pepper in addition to the regular garlic. We can never get enough garlic. I have tried two and had to hide bag so I would not eat any more. This is my second batch. I made these for a potluck party at the pottery studio where I go to make pots. I served these with cheddar cheese and they did not last very long.

Homemade Flour Tortillas

Reviewed: Oct. 6, 2013
Super good recipe. I changed a few things, not much, mainly I put in 4 T butter flavored Crisco and processed it all in the food processor. My MIL always told me to knead them for 2 minutes, roll into balls, and let rest for 10 minutes. SOOO...since she use to be the food editor for the "New Mexico Magazine", I am following her advise. The best compliment that I got from my sweetie, was that they tasted like his mom's tortillas. Since my MIL passed in 2012, that is high praise from him. Make sure when you are rolling them out that you turn the tortilla 45 degrees each time you roll it out. That gives you a nice round tortilla.

Baked Lemon Chicken Thighs with Mushroom Sauce

Reviewed: Aug. 29, 2013
This was a very good recipe. There is a strong lemon flavor, but it was not overpowering. I followed the recipe to the letter for the most part, but when I was getting ready to cook the chicken, I realized that I forgot to put the oregano in the brine. Oops! When the cooking time was done, the chicken looked a little too white for me and since I like crisp skin, I decided to broil the chicken. I broiled it for about 5 minutes and I achieved what I wanted. To keep my carb count down, I substituted one tablespoon of corn starch for the flour in the sauce. Armando, my better half (?) rated this recipe a 9 out of ten. He does not rate very many meals this high. All in all, a very good dinner that will grace my kitchen table again.

White Chocolate Apricot Oatmeal Cookies

Reviewed: Aug. 10, 2013
To make this for high altitude, reduce the brown sugar by one tablespoon and increase the vanilla to 1 1/2 teas. These recommendations are for those folks living over 5000 feet

Crumb-Coated Chicken Thighs

Reviewed: Jun. 7, 2013
I followed the recipe exactly. The spices I used were fresh, but there was not any 'spice" as far as I am concerned. I think IF I make this again, which I sincerely doubt, I will add some garlic and onion powders to the mix. This was one meal that the better half suggested that I delete the recipe.

Cherry Ham Glaze

Reviewed: Apr. 3, 2013
I made this glaze for Easter dinner. I shop at an Amish grocery store on occasion, and I purchase small jars of fruit spread when I go. I used the 6oz jar and followed the recipe as written with one exception. In place of the regular vinegar, I used balsamic. Also, I rehydrated some dried cherries. The liquid from this I used for my water. Since it was just the two of us, I had more than enough glaze for my small ham that I made, but my better half was caught eating it out of the pan!! I served some on top of the ham slices. It was SO good!!
