Zesty Slow Cooker Chicken Barbecue

Reviewed: Jan. 22, 2011
Family of 6 ALL loved this recipe (for once)! A few of my family members are real "foodies" and only like "gourmet" ... but they all raved about this. Definitely will be a regular as it is super easy on a busy workday. I used 5 frozen breasts and cooked on low most of the day (7-8 hours) then shredded and cooked another hour or so longer. Served on buns and my boys thought it was a "sloppy joe".

Summer Corn Salad

Reviewed: Jun. 27, 2011
fresh tasty summer salad ... I followed the recipe exactly. My four kids all really liked it as an alternative to our "boring" green lettuce salad.

Mango Sorbet

Reviewed: Jun. 27, 2011
Delicious in our new Cuisinart ice cream maker ... tied for one of the top two recipes we have made in it. I need to double the recipe next time as it makes a very small amount (for 6 of us).

Maple Salmon

Reviewed: Jun. 27, 2011
Delicious! My family loved it. I give it only four stars only because we have two other salmon recipes (brown sugar salmon and a rosemary salmon) we like just a bit better. I would rate this one 4 1/2 stars if I could.

Roasted Asparagus and Garlic

Reviewed: Jun. 27, 2011
This didn't have as much flavor as I expected. We make a pan cooked version of asparagus and chopped garlic that has much more flavor ... and there is also a roasted version of the same that is better (not cooked in foil, but roasted dry on the pan). This might have tasted better if the garlic were chopped up rather than whole cloves.

Slow Cooker Texas Pulled Pork

Reviewed: Jul. 20, 2011
It was so nice to spend 10 minutes prepping in the morning and hardly any prep in the evening. My family all loved it and asked if I could make it more often!

California Grilled Veggie Sandwich

Reviewed: Jul. 25, 2011
Excellent, tasty, easy family favorite. Great for a hot summer evening meal. My kids and husband loved it. I used provolone cheese instead of feta ... just something a bit milder for my kids. I'll try feta next time for the adults.

Gazpacho

Reviewed: Jul. 25, 2011
My family thought it was rather bland. Perhaps next time if we serve it with lots of condiments like chopped red onion, croutons, parmesan cheese, etc.

Mahi-Mahi with Blood Orange, Avocado, and Red Onion Salsa (from Bon Appetit)

Reviewed: Sep. 10, 2011
This recipe was from Bon Appetit. My husband and stepson LOVED it and went on and on about how wonderful it was (and they are foodies!) A little time consuming with all of the chopping, but rather simple and easy and very flavorful. I would marinate the fish (since Mahi Mahi is rather bland) in lime, salt and garlic for an hour or so before cooking.

Slow Cooker Latin Chicken

Reviewed: Dec. 10, 2011
This made a HUGE portion ... enough for 12 full servings! Served with brown rice once, white rice once, as well as corn tortillas on the side. DELICIOUS!! My family loved it and it was something different and easy.

Champagne Punch III

Reviewed: Jan. 1, 2012
wonderful! So refreshing, almost like sangria! Made the whole recipe and WAY too much for 8 adults, but also served beer and wine.

Mini Cheesecakes

Reviewed: Jan. 1, 2012
So delicious! I doubled the recipe and put them in mini-muffin pans using the graham cracker crust instead of the vanilla wafers. It made over 100 mini cheesecakes with enough left to make a full pie! Next time I won't double the recipe ... but we have lots leftover for treats this week!

Chicken Banh Mi Sandwiches

Reviewed: Jan. 1, 2012
Excellent lower-calorie version of Vietnamese Banh Mi sandwich! We sliced up the chicken before placing on sandwiches and it was much better this way than a whole piece of chicken.

The Best Thai Coconut Soup

Reviewed: Jan. 6, 2013
This was wonderful! My family loved it. I used the minced fresh lemongrass just like the recipe and thought it was good. I did actually finely minced the ginger rather than grated slices, and thought it was really great (but mincing was time consuming). At first I thought it wasn't hot enough with 2 T curry paste, but after simmering for awhile it was actually just spicy enough for my family ... served with red pepper flakes for my husband (who likes EXTRA SPICY everything) ... but he didn't use it and liked it as is! I did use all LITE cans of coconut milk instead of the regular and we thought it tasted wonderful, but saved on the calories.
