Ground Beef with Homemade Taco Seasoning Mix

Reviewed: Mar. 29, 2014
This was a great starting point for me when my son said, "mom, I want tacos." I chopped up shallots and garlic and cooked in a little homemade chicken stock. I added the beef and when browned I added the seasonings listed in the recipe (excluding salt, onion and garlic). Then to amp it up a bit I added fire roasted tomatoes and red kidney beans until the ratio looked good. I used chicken stock instead of water. When it cooked down I added fresh cilantro. I know in the end I changed the recipe a lot, but it was a much better base than the mixes.

Leek, Bacon, and Pasta

Reviewed: Sep. 25, 2012
Great recipe! I was able to use only one pot. We used Rotelle because my 7 year old son picked the pasta and thought it looked cooler, Apple smoked bacon, more leek than the recipe suggests because the one I had was huge, baby bellas and light sour cream. The cook time is not 20 minutes if you read the directions and it could take longer depending on your bacon. The parsley was good, but I might try basil or a mix of fresh herbs next time.

Peachie Peach Pecan Nut Bread

Reviewed: Jul. 15, 2012
Try it! I had a slightly smaller loaf pan so I made a loaf and muffins. The peaches I had were large so I only needed 4. It had the perfect amount of nuts and the texture/moisture was very nice. The loaf was loved by friends and family, but we all agreed it needed more cinnamon so after buttering the muffin pan I dusted it with a mixture of cinnamon and sugar (1tps cinnamon - 1T sugar). Perfect.

Caramelized Baked Chicken

Reviewed: Dec. 4, 2011
I just made these and I followed the advice in the reviews and it was still pretty unremarkable... sorry. I'm just not impressed.

Laura's Quick Slow Cooker Turkey Chili

Reviewed: Oct. 21, 2011
Yum! Everyone in my family loved this. From 65 to 6 years old they were at the table asking if we could have dinner early. They ate the leftovers for lunch and dinner the next day and left NONE for me. I used red white and black beans for color. As toppings crackers sour cream and shredded cheese toned it down and minced peppers heated it up. Good stuff and not expensive to make.

Perfect Pumpkin Pie

Reviewed: Oct. 21, 2011
This was my first time making a pumpkin pie. I made one for work and one for home and they were both gone in a flash! I didn't have pumpkin spice but I had apple pie spice so I used that, cinnamon and a pinch of ginger. I also used a graham cracker crust. I will definitely make this again!

Vintage Lemonade

Reviewed: Jul. 2, 2011
Such fun! I enjoyed the process of making this as much as the end result. I did add a quarter cup of fresh blue berries and it came out a really nice color. Later tonight I will be adding grey goose ;-)
