A Nice Slow-Cooked Pork
A very tasty and easily prepared recipe that I have made a few times. Here are my changes: added tons of garlic, used chopped onions instead of pearl, added carrots and sun-dried tomatoes for color, and used slightly less liquid than called for. Also, omitted mushrooms (I don't care for them) and most recently left out the potatoes since I didn't realize that I had none. It was delicious, and is versatile for different serving options: I have served with egg noodles, barley, rice, pasta, or crusty bread for soaking up the liquid.

Best Cream Of Broccoli Soup
This recipe came out terrific! I omitted the celery since I didn't have any. At the suggestion of some other reviewers, I made a few changes: I added 1 large cubed potato after sweating the onions with a few cloves of garlic. This is also when I added some chopped broccoli stems (no need to waste them) since they take longer to soften, and then added the florets after 10-15 minutes. I reserved some of the cooked florets for texture and garnish, and blended the rest of the pot with an immersion blender. As one reviewer suggested, I seasoned this soup at various steps throughout cooking to ensure that it would not turn out bland--it didn't. I used some Nature's Seasoning, Seasoned Salt, some garlic powder, and also added some dried spinach flakes for color. I also swapped heavy whipping cream for half of the amount of milk. I think that the addition of potato and cream helped make this soup very rich and creamy. I served it with some sharp cheddar, but it didn't need any extras. It was very flavorful and delicious on its own.

Delicious Salmon
Made this recipe using some Alaskan salmon caught by a friend. Was looking for something easy, and using my existing pantry staples. Not sure what the "salty" reviewer was talking about. The marinade gave a subtle, sweet flavor, while still letting the natural salmon flavor come through. Not at all salty. Of course, I added twice as much garlic, and cooked the fish on the grill. Served it with grilled asparagus. Truly delicious, as the name says. Will definitely be added to my recipe box!
