Ken's Kickin' Posole

Reviewed: Nov. 27, 2012
WOWEE WOW WOW!! After moving to the southwest this summer I knew once it cooled down a bit I wanted to try posole. So far I haven't seen it on any menus so I thought I'd make some of my own and I'm SOOOO glad I did, this recipe was E X C E L L E N T !! I prepared it just as written except once I had all the components finished I put them into a LARGE CrocPot and let it cook on low all day. I shared it with neighbors who have lived in the SW for 30 years and they also said it was the best they'd had. I have a feeling I'll be making this regularly during the "cool" weather ahead. THANK YOU SO MUCH KEN for posting your recipe!!

Creamy Roasted Parsnip Soup

Reviewed: Nov. 27, 2012
4.5 stars.....really good! I wanted to try parsnips as I've never had them and this was a GREAT recipe to try. Has a bit of a bite of heat at the end so you may want to add a drizzle of some heavy cream onto the top of each bowl before serving, it'll help tame the heat a bit. If all parsnips are this good, count me in!

Slow-Cooker Chicken Tortilla Soup

Reviewed: Oct. 16, 2012
I LOVE slow cooker recipes for many reasons and this one was no exception. I used all chicken broth instead of water and had some roasted Hatch chiles in the freezer so diced those and used in place of the canned green chiles. I fixed this for company a week ago and am planning on using the recipe again this week for some other company. SO much easier entertaining when the work is done, kitchen is cleaned up and dinner is waiting in the slow cooker!

Slow Cooker Carrot Cake Steel Cut Oats

Reviewed: Oct. 10, 2012
I followed this exactly except I omitted the artificial sweetener and used coconut sugar and added some unsweetened shredded coconut and walnuts. Unfortunately neither of us cared for it.

Meatloaf With A Bite

Reviewed: Feb. 8, 2011
I kicked it up a bit at the end. Once it was done cooking I topped it with a mixture of 3T ketchup and 1T Srirracha and then browned it under the broiler. I also used a mixture of a 4-cheese Italian blend and Sharp Cheddar instead of the cheese called for as that was what I had on hand.

Baked Kale Chips

Reviewed: Jan. 24, 2011
The easiest way to cover the kale with the oil is to put the prepared kale in a ziploc bag with olive oil, close the seal and "massage" the oil into the kale. Sprinkle with whatever seasonings you enjoy after removing kale from bag

Mexican Casserole

Reviewed: Dec. 27, 2010
Made it as listed with exception of adding a tsp of cayenne to the mix and some diced cilantro with the last layer of cheese. The only thing I DID change was to make it in an 8x8 pan. I can't imagine how thin it would be had I used the 9x13 pan recommended. I'll definitely fix again as it was a hit, easy to make and has stuff I always have on hand

Classic Chicken Noodle Soup

Reviewed: Dec. 25, 2010
I had some lancato kale that needed used so I sliced it into thin strips & used that instead of the peas. Also, whenever I make soup I tend to add about a tablespoon of soy sauce as it adds a little "umami" to it. With this recipe I also added a pinch of cayennne.

Baked Potato Soup

Reviewed: Dec. 21, 2010
Wonderful soup! The only thing I did differently was to add about a 1/2 tsp of cayenne at the end and also pureed a bit of the potatoes with my immersion blender. Thanks for a SOUPER/SUPER recipe, it's a keeper in this house!

Carrot Soup

Reviewed: Dec. 11, 2010
Was good but a bit bland so I added an 8 oz block of reduced fat cream cheese (everything's better with cream cheese!), a fairly large pinch of cayenne and a big splash of soy sauce for a little "umami"

Cajun Shrimp Orecchiette

Reviewed: Nov. 12, 2010
From my "not wild about shrimp" husband, this dish is "good enough for company!" I doubled the cajun spice and used three large handfuls of baby spinach changed the 1/3 C butter to half butter and half EVOO and used chicken broth instead of the wine. . I will DEFINITELY be making this again & will also try it using chicken as someone else recommended. Thank you Dawn for submitting this great recipe!

Chicken with Lime Butter

Reviewed: Aug. 2, 2010
Easy & well-liked by my husband (a huge plus!), I did make a few changes. I used one huge chicken breast & split it for us to share. Used the same amount of ingredients for the sauce EXCEPT for the butter. Yikes, a half cup of butter??!!!! I used MAYBE 2 tablespoons. Also to the lime juice I added two garlic cloves, 1/2 of a serrano chili pepper and maybe 1 tsp of shallots. Instead of the dill (not a fav of my husband), I used fresh basil. I will DEFINITELY repeat this one!

Cape Breton Blueberry Grunt

Reviewed: Jul. 18, 2010
Followed other reviewers and halved the amount of sugar and it was plenty sweet. Also, batter wasn't thick enough to spoon so I just poured it on and sprinkled a bit of cinnamon on top. WISH I had put some sliced fresh peaches on top of the batter, think it would be wonderful. Plan on doing just that next time. VERY easy recipe with things I have in my pantry, a real plus!

Cranberry Pistachio Biscotti

Reviewed: Dec. 17, 2009
Great recipe, especially nice for the holidays with the green & red colors. Living in Michigan, I used dried cherries in place of the cranberries. I also baked mine a few minutes longer for the second bake as I didn't think they were dry enough. Once cooled I drizzled on melted white chocolate for a "festive" look. I will DEFINITELY make these again and think the people in my cookie exchange will really enjoy them.

Cheeseburger Meatloaf

Reviewed: Nov. 17, 2009
Wow! I used 95% lean beef and habanero cheese for a real crowd pleaser. I think it wouldn't have been nearly as good had I used a cheese that wasn't so spicy. Had I used hamburger with a higher fat content I think it would have been waaaaay to greasy. Thanks for a GREAT recipe, this will be something I fix monthly (we try not to eat too much red meat)

Squash Pie

Reviewed: Oct. 16, 2008
I made as directed, perhaps adding more spices, poured into individual ramekins and baked as a custard. I used a squash I found called "Georgia Roaster" and it all turned out nicely. BTW.... I roast all my squash in the oven, process in the food processor & then put into vacuum bags & freeze. Having the biggest "mess" of the recipe already done, this is REALLY simple! A tasty, healthier dessert, thanks!

Ten Minute Enchilada Sauce

Simple Swiss Chard

Reviewed: Jan. 22, 2008
My first time fixing swiss chard (I used rainbow chard). Was a bit blah (other than too vinegary) so I added some pine nuts. Next time I'll cut the vinegar and I'm sure it'll be better.

Butternut Squash Soup

Reviewed: Oct. 26, 2007
Wow! Super easy, fast and oh so yummy! Better than any I've had at restaurants. Made just as recipe with exception of used only HALF the margarine (Smart Balance Light), reduced fat Cream Cheese, and added a dash more cayenne. Followed other's advice & just halved squash, removed seed, put in a shallow dish with a bit of water, covered with plastic wrap & cooked in microwave. Then simply scoop flesh out from skin. I used my FAVORITE kitchen tool, my immersion blender & simply pureed it in the pan I cooked it in. Will be a "regular" on my menu rotation. Thanks for submitting it!

Maple Salmon

Reviewed: May 1, 2007
Oh my gosh, what a FABULOUS & easy recipe! Per other reviews I omitted the garlic salt & basted it a few times during baking. I will DEFINITELY make this again, as good as any salmon dish I've had out. And remember, if you're going to eat salmon, make it WILD (not Atlantic, it's a tricky name for farmed raised salmon)
