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!!

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!

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!

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)

Ten Minute Enchilada Sauce

Reviewed: Feb. 10, 2008
Wow I'm impressed & will NEVER buy enchilada sauce again! Super easy, quick, better than the canned stuff and uses ingredients I always have in my pantry. Thanks SO much for submitting the recipe!

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)

Chicken Tortilla Soup I

Reviewed: Jan. 28, 2007
Wow! Delicious soup that's easy to fix and a great one to put extra in the freezer. Fixed exactly as stated, didn't make any changes/substitutions.

Burgundy Pork Tenderloin

Reviewed: Oct. 14, 2006
Wow, a simple & impressive lowfat entree! I used a cabernet for the wine and found I had to cook longer than stated. I'm sure roasting time depends on thickeness of roast. Use a thermometer & just make sure it's 160 degrees and you're good to go. The smell while it was cooking was incredible, could hardly wait for it to come out of the oven. I also added some mushrooms, which are fabulous with the cab & onions.

Cha Cha's White Chicken Chili

Reviewed: Dec. 8, 2005
Fabulous soup but WAAAAAY to much jalapenos! 4 oz is a LOT! We like spicy food but next time I'll cut the jalapenos in half. This will be a staple on our cold weather meals list.

Broccoli and Cheese Brunch Casserole

Reviewed: Jan. 23, 2005
Great recipe! Instead of the roma tomatoes I decorated the top with red, yellow, orange, & green pepper rings. Also, used spicy sausage and mexican cheese instead of cheddar. Had a nice mixed greens salad on the side for a tasty dinner but would also fix for breakfast or brunch. (I halved the recipe with no problems)

Best Black Beans

Reviewed: Sep. 11, 2006
A HUGE hit with everyone at the table, including the cook, who loves simple, fast dishes. I might add a tad less cayenne, but it's definitely a "keeper" in my book.

Hungarian Mushroom Soup

Reviewed: Jan. 13, 2004
OHMIGOSH, this was one of the BEST soups I've ever fixed! Plus it was easy, always a plus in my book. I added some roast garlic & put my immersion blender in it to puree some of it for a creamier soup. It's a recipe I fix again & again, and pass on to anyone I know that likes mushrooms. It's as good as ANY I've had in restaurants.

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

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!

Fancy Potatoes

Reviewed: Nov. 22, 2003
Wonderful easy! I didn't have garlic salt so I added about 2 tsp of dry buttermilk ranch dressing mix. FANTASTIC! I made these up early for company then just popped them in the oven in time for the rest of the meal. I would DEFINITELY fix these again!

Pumpkin Fluff Dip

Reviewed: Oct. 26, 2003
A HUGE hit for carry-ins. I fixed it for my husband to take to work last Fall & this year they specifically asked that he bring it in again. I must've sent the recipe to a dozen people that requested it. It's SUPER easy, really tasty, and a nice touch during the Fall season. I served it with Vanilla wafers and Gingersnaps. If you want to lighten it a bit, use fatfree Cool Whip & sugarfree pudding.

Key West Chicken

Reviewed: Oct. 26, 2003
Made this exactly as listed (I marinated it all day)& it was absolutely the BEST, most moist & flavorful chicken I've ever grilled. It was a HUGE hit with everyone at the table. Next time I'll grill additional chicken so there's leftovers, it'd make KILLER chicken sandwiches!

Kentucky Bourbon Sweet Potatoes

Reviewed: Oct. 26, 2003
This is the absolute BEST (and easiest) recipe for sweet potatoes I've found. I substituted brown sugar for the white & ended up having to bake it a bit longer. It was a HUGE hit, a MUST try even if you THINK you don't like sweet potatoes!
