Firehouse Machaca Taco Filling

Reviewed: Oct. 14, 2013
I made this Saturday. Made it mostly as the recipe directed. When I braise beef I always add a clove or two of garlic and instead of all water I used one can of low sodium chicken broth and water. While the meat was cooling I cooked down the cooking broth to concentrate the flavors. This made for some good tacos. With some added cheese, Avocado and Pico Pica hot sauce.

Quick and Easy 20-Minute Chicken Posole

Reviewed: Sep. 19, 2013
Love this recipe. I usually make a Red Pork posole and wanted to try something different. Made it as directed except draining the chilies, No need to drain them. also garnished with Diced Avocados, Cilantro and fresh onion. With a squeeze of Lime. Yummy.

Hunts® Sopa de Fideo con Pollo

Reviewed: Aug. 3, 2013
I didn't find this recipe to be as flavorful as others. I used twice the amount of sazon and lots of onion, garlic and poblano pepper. It seemed very bland. I'll be looking for a better recipe.

Poblano Chile Enchiladas a la Gringa

Reviewed: Jul. 28, 2013
I made this today for Hubby. He loved it. Not sure why the recipe would say discard the rest of the cooking broth. It seemed like such a waste. While my Chicken was cooling and Chilies were roasting I cooked down the broth to concentrate the flavors. I also used Jack cheese instead of Mozzarella. Cilantro and green onion for garnish..Yummy. Next time I'll add a couple of Roasted Jalapeno's with the Poblanos.

White Chocolate Macadamia Nut Cookies III

Reviewed: Mar. 31, 2013
Made these today just as the Recipe directed. Only thing I did different was added a 12oz. bag of white chips and unsalted butter. Very good cookies. They didn't spread out too much and baked up nicely. I will use this recipe again with choc chips and walnuts.

Butter Rich Spritz Butter Cookies

Reviewed: Mar. 29, 2013
I made these to take to work. A few of the ladies said they were good. But I didn't get the "Wow, Who made this" like with other recipes I've taken to work. They were fun to make and did taste good. But nothing special.

Mediterranean Pasta with Greens

Reviewed: Mar. 24, 2012
Very good recipe and very easy to throw together. I used Kale instead of chard, but this is a personal preference. I didn't cook the kale first in water. I just added it to the skillet with the Garlic, sun-dried tomatoes and kalamata olives. I added a little of the pasta cooking water and let the kale steam a bit. I also added a can of quartered artichoke hearts with the pasta. The flavor was excellent. Finished with a sprinkle of Pecorino Romano, Yummy!

Hash Brown and Egg Casserole

Reviewed: Sep. 30, 2011
I made this for an office potluck. It was like by most all my co-workers. A couple of the ladies asked for the recipe. I made this with half a 30oz bag of shredded hash brown potatoes, 8 very large eggs, half and half, colby jack cheese. This dish had a very good taste. I didn't add the onion or garlic powder. It seemed too much with the sausage and diced onion already in the dish. I'll definitely make this again. I think I'll try Italian sausage and some Italian cheeses..yummy

Green Bean and Mushroom Medley

Reviewed: Nov. 28, 2008
This is a great recipe for fresh green beans. I omitted the carrots because I had 1 and 1/2 lbs of green beans to cook. I used an 8oz bagged of sliced fresh mushroom and it turned out great. Like other reviewers I didn't add the salt only used the season salt and my roasted garlic & sea salt grinder from Costco. I took this dish to my Mother in laws for thanksgiving and she loved it. She saved the few leftovers for herself. I will be making this again, it’s a keeper.

Chile Colorado

Reviewed: Oct. 3, 2008
This is a great recipe, just what I was looking for. Easy and Tasty. The only changes I made was not using the flour, I didn’t feel it was needed. The chili broth will thicken while cooking with the lid removed. I did add Garlic to the onions and some oregano to the chili puree. This is a definite keeper.

Thighs on Rice

Reviewed: Aug. 5, 2004
Even though I browned the thighs before adding to the cooking dish this recipe came out very greasy. I didn't even add the butter. A 1/2 cube of butter would have made this even more greasy. I won't be making this again.

Southern Living Magazine's Chicken-Fried Steak

Reviewed: May 22, 2004
This is a good recipe. I always use cube steaks for chicken-fried steak and I liked the addition of crackers crumbs for the breading. I never use the amount of oil called for, just enough to brown the steaks nicely. I added coarse ground blk pepper to the crumb mixture. I didn't have red pepper and I'll be sure to use it next time. I like food with alot of flavor. Using 2 cups of milk always makes enough gravy for my family of 4 and it's really good with garlic mashed potatoes.

Zucchini Patties

I followed this recipe with a cpl of changes. I used monterey jack instead of mozzarella and also added chopped fresh garlic. I really didn't care for the texture. I won't be making this again.

Kim's Prime Rib

Reviewed: May 7, 2004
I tried this because Hubby wanted me to, I knew better. This is one way to ruin a great cut of beef and make a huge mess.

Libby's® Famous Pumpkin Pie

Reviewed: Apr. 22, 2004
This recipe is the only pumpkin pie recipe I'll use. I omit the cloves and ginger. I do increase the cinnamon a bit and add about a 1/4 tsp of nutmeg. If I have extra pumpkin filling left after filling my pie plate, I just pour it into a little baking dish and cook it along side the pie. But watch it closely because it will cook faster then the pie.

Asparagus Quiche

Reviewed: Apr. 2, 2004
I didn't have much luck with this recipe. First off, if I make this again I'll prebake the pie shell. Only the crust on my shell was cooked. I would also chop the aspargus smaller after steaming. It didn't have a bad taste. It just seemed to chunky for a quiche.

Asian Tuna Patties

Reviewed: Jun. 15, 2003
I didn't care for this recipe that much. I used 2 cans of albacore tuna so they didn't taste fishy. I just didn't like the combination of flavors the ingredients created. I won't be making this again.

Long Soup

Reviewed: Sep. 29, 2002
This is a great Recipe. Hubby liked it so much he asked me to make it again the next night. I did add a clove of garlic with the Cabbage and pork and I also grated the ginger instead of mincing it.
