Chicken with Chipotle

Reviewed: Nov. 4, 2006
Awesome recipe! I browned boneless, skinless chicken breasts and then added the sauce to finish cooking them. I used one chicken bouillion cube, lite sour cream and only one cup of milk but upped the number of chipotles to 5 for a nice "kick". Also, thickened the sauce a bit toward the end of cooking with a bit of flour and water. I would have liked leftovers but my husband, daugher and I ate every last bite. Easy, light and delicious!!

Coconut Macaroons III

Reviewed: Sep. 21, 2003
After many trials and errors for the perfect macaroon, this is it! I have had more compliments on these cookies. I do melt about 1 cup of semi-sweet chocolate chips with 1 teaspoon of shortening and then drizzle them over the cookie using a plastic zip-type storage bag with the corner cut off. Very, very impressive. They store very well, also.

Real Hummus

Reviewed: Sep. 11, 2002
I can't believe I had been spending big bucks for hummus! This is fast, easy, inexpensive and GOOD! My whole family, including my thirteen year old, loves it. I didn't have any tahini in the house so I substituted a little peanut butter and some ground sesame seeds to get the nutty flavor. I also added black olives to rave reviews. A definite keeper!

Chocolate Orange Truffles

Reviewed: Dec. 28, 2002
A HUGE hit for Christmas! Definitely chill well between steps and I put the balls in the freezer for 30 minutes before dipping in the chocolate, which gave them a very professional look as the chocolate coating firmed up immediately. This one is perfect for a busy cook as the steps can take place over the course of a couple of days. Double the recipe because everyone will want them!

Flounder Florentine

Reviewed: Jan. 12, 2010
I made this tonight and with only a few changes, LOVED it! Used fresh spinach that I sauteed with a little garlic and olive oil. Squeezed all the liquid out. Made the sauce as in the recipe, only adding a couple of tablespoons more parmesan. Used one cup of sauce in the spinach and the other half cup to cover the fish (tilapia, by the way. Worked great!). Did use a bit of Old Bay on the fish, too. Baked at 400 for about 25 minutes to get a bit of browning. Seriously, made both my husband and I think it was a "restaurant" dish!! Will so definitely make this again!

Chewy Oatmeal Cookies I

Reviewed: Oct. 7, 2007
Very good cookies!! I really liked the use of only one stick of butter. As to the baking time, as with ALL cookies, baking time will be effected by the size of your cookies, what kind of cookie sheet you use and how accurate your oven is, so don't really think that should be how you rate a recipe. I used a 1 tablespoon scoop, as opposed to a spoon, and got 60 cookies. I baked some on a dark, non-stick sheet and those only took 10 minutes. I made some on a shiny, "air" cookie sheet and those took 14 minutes to get brown but with either, the taste was GREAT!! I used orange essense cranberries and natural applesause and couldn't be more pleased with the taste and texture. These don't spread much, either, so kind of "patted" the scoop down a bit to get a flatter cookie. Definitely a good recipe for someone watching their fat and fiber!!

Semmelknoedel (Bread Dumplings)

Reviewed: Oct. 22, 2008
I'm Czech so know a thing or two about dumplings and these ROCK!! The addition of the sauted onions was awesome!! Be sure to let the bread soak for the 15 minutes so it's evenly moist and squishing all together is genius. I plan on doubling the recipe and tray freezing them so I always have them on hand!

Cajun Crawfish and Shrimp Etouffe

Reviewed: Nov. 6, 2010
Awesome recipe! Changes made: used butter instead of oil. My roux only took about 5 minutes to become "peanut butter color" but I had a very heavy bottomed pan. Added more garlic and less celery. Used 1 T of Old Bay, 1/2 T Cajun seasoning and only 1 T of hot sauce. Wish I had used more as it was a little mild. Or next time, will use Tabasco instead of Texas Pete. To make the fish stock, I used one can of chicken broth (14 oz) and simmered it with the shrimp shells. Used the whole 14oz of liquid and glad I did as it made it a bit more "saucier". Considering hubby went back for thirds, will definitely be making this again!!

Greek Style Potatoes

Reviewed: May 25, 2009
OMG!! These aren't LIKE the potatoes you get at a Greek restaurant. These are BETTER!! I only changed the seasonings a bit, using only oregano (2 teaspoons) and salt and pepper (no boullion). Mixed up everything in a bowl, put it in the oven for an hour covered, then uncovered them for the last 20-30 minutes. I have never tasted such a flavorful potato! Had to throw myself between by husband and the pan so he didn't eat them all! Definitely a winner!

Zeppole

Reviewed: Nov. 5, 2009
I've made these before with a different recipe and actually prefer these. Totally yummy!! Made exactly as written and wouldn't change anything. No, they are not super sweet but the confectioners sugar makes up for that. Great way to use up leftover ricotta. I actually only made half a recipe and it was perfect!

Happy Shrimp

Reviewed: Nov. 23, 2011
Absolutely LOVE this recipe!! Only used 1/2 pound of shrimp and 2 TBLS of butter but kept everything else the same so there would be enough sauce for the two of us. Used half and half instead of cream but ended up throwing in a bit more at the end. SHEER GENIUS to cook the shrimp and then take it out of the pan as the sauce cooks. Ended up tasting better than most restaurant dishes I've had!! Definitely worth making again and again! (Oh, and quick, too!)

Herbed Rice and Spicy Black Bean Salad

Reviewed: Sep. 9, 2010
Really liked this recipe!! I used a pouch of ready made brown rice and zapped it in the microwave for about a minute to warm it up and take the dressing a bit better. Omitted the cilantro only because I didn't have any and celery because I'm not a big fan. Cut back the cayenne to 1/4 teaspoon. Added calamata olives instead of canned black olives and then added about a half a cup of halved cherry tomatoes. Wonderfull!! Perfect lunch salad!! Next time I'm going to reduce the olive oil to 2 tablespoons to reduce the fat conent a bit and add a minced jalepeno for a bit more heat but trust me, a pretty good recipe as is!

Cuban Ropa Vieja

Reviewed: Feb. 4, 2010
Made this after work with my pressure cooker instead of the slow cooker. Used boneless beef ribs, no tomato sauce, 4 cloves of garlic and a jalepeno instead of the green pepper. Outstanding!! Served with black beans and rice. Totally worth making again!

Slow Cooker Oats

Reviewed: Sep. 25, 2012
Holy buckets!! If I could give this recipe more stars, I would!! Just bought a 1.5 quart crock pot for our camper and saw this recipe and gave it a try. I was a little worried as crock pots vary from brand to brand, size to size and this came out PERFECT!! Followed the recipe almost to a "t", adding a little bit more brown sugar, dried cranberries instead of raisins and added some chopped pecans for crunch. Woke up the next morning to a bubbling crock of deliciousness!! WAY better than any instant/stove top/microwave I have ever tried. I'm already thinking about new combinations of dried fruits and nuts! WELL worth getting the bag of steel cut oats for. Heck, get the new little crock pot for this one!! SO glad I did!!

Carne Guisada II

Reviewed: Jan. 9, 2010
Great recipe with very little needed to change! Doubled the meat and the spices , tossed the meat with a bit of flour before browning but since I put it in the crockpot, kept the liquid (broth and water) about the same. Cooked for 8 hours on low in the crock pot and it was falling apart. Fantastic flavor but if you want a bit more heat, you might want to add a few chipotle's or cayenne as even with 2 serranos and 2 jalepenos, was pretty mild. Still SO worth making again! Served with tortillas, avocados and cheese. WONDERFUL flavor without a grill!!

Crescent Pizza Pinwheels

Reviewed: Dec. 19, 2011
Made these last year for a Christmas Eve buffet and they were a HUGE hit!! Made some with green pepper and some without and both were gone as soon as I took them out of the oven. All the flavor of pizza rolls but SO much more elegant!!

Sweet, Sticky and Spicy Chicken

Reviewed: Jan. 30, 2011
Very good recipe and very simple!! Changes I made: Coated the chicken pieces in a tablespoon of flour along with a bit of salt and pepper. I think this helped thicken the sauce a bit, too. Doubled all the sauce amounts except the hot sauce (we used 1 heaping tablespoon of Chinese chili bean paste). Next time, I will use only 1/4 cup soy and 1/4 cup either water or sake, as 1/2 cup of soy sauce made it a tad salty. Other than that, made it exactly as written and it was awesome! Perfectly spicy, nice and sticky. Already planning to make it again! Simpler than a lot of mixes!!

Terry's Texas Pinto Beans

Reviewed: Oct. 25, 2010
A good, solid bean dish. Not spectacular but easy to make, good taste and better for you than a lot of fat laden side dishes. If your main dish is going to be the focus, this might be the perfect dish to accompany it.

Cranberry Pumpkin Bread

Reviewed: Oct. 25, 2010
Really liked this recipe. Easy ingredients, easy prep and tasted delicious. I liked the fact it wasn't overly sweet and stayed moist and delicious for days! Only thing I did differently was to omit the nuts. Definitely worth keeping!!

Mexican Casserole

Reviewed: Oct. 14, 2010
Yummy casserole with easy preperation!! I did add half an onion and a jalapeno when I was browing the hamburger. Also, added half a package of taco seasoning with 1 tablespoon of chili powder for seasoning. Also used Ranch black beans instead of pinto, 10 corn tortillas and only 2 cups of cheese. Awesome! Next time, I'm going to throw in a can of chopped green chilis for a little spice! I don't think you can mess up this recipe! Have fun with it!
