Best Cauliflower Soup

Reviewed: Sep. 15, 2014
This is simple and foolproof. Comfort food indeed! I had close to 2 cups of mashed potatoes leftover from dinner the night before, so I blended them in at the last instead of cooking potatoes in the broth. It was delicious and none leftover.

Candied Kielbasa

Reviewed: Dec. 23, 2013
Very good and super easy. They were eaten up! Like other reviewers suggested, cut back on the sugar, add Dijon mustard, hot sauce and whatever else you think to spice it up a notch. I will make these again.

Balsamic Roasted Pork Loin

Reviewed: Sep. 28, 2013
I used the marinade with a few pounds of pork tenderloin and threw them on the grill. So easy and very flavorful. My family like it very much. I would definitely marinate it over night. Thanks for the recipe!

Curry Pork Tenderloin

Reviewed: Sep. 12, 2013
I added a tsp of salt and doubled the curry powder, added a 1/4 tsp each of ground cumin and cayenne, then added a heaping spoonful of vindaloo paste. Also added fresh tomato and red pepper from the garden. I asked my kids what they thought and they both liked it. One said, "It needs to be a bit spicier!"

Missy's Candied Walnut Gorgonzola Salad

Reviewed: Nov. 4, 2012
This was very simple and I really liked the combination of flavors. I made it with pecans, but I'm sure I would like walnuts just as much. I just used bottled raspberry dressing and added a bit of red onion for zip. I will make this again!

Jalapeno Popper Spread

Reviewed: Mar. 5, 2010
So simple and very delicious. I doubled the peppers and I followed one reviewer's advice and topped it with a mixture of parmesan and panko crumbs to give it a golden, crunchy topping. However, I didn't think it looked unappetizing without it, as one person suggested. Either way, this is a new staple dip.

Carne Guisada II

Reviewed: Feb. 11, 2010
This is now my favorite way to cook stewing beef. I doubled the recipe, and followed the recipe, except that I used one can of tomato paste and one can of crushed tomatoes. I also dredged the beef in flour and browned it before putting it in the slow cooker. It's also a good idea to use whole spices ground with a mortar and pestle when using the slow cooker, because the flavor of powdered seasonings gets lost after several hours of cooking. Thanks so much for this recipe.

Enchilada Casserole III

Reviewed: Jan. 23, 2010
I added 2 Tbsp of 'Taco Seasoning I' mix to the meat mixture and also a 14 oz. can of diced tomatoes. It made a lot, and the leftovers disappeared quickly. I think next time I will add a can of black beans instead of the refried, as per one reviewer, just to give it a nicer presentation. Thanks for this recipe - we really enjoyed it.

Taco Seasoning I

Reviewed: Jan. 22, 2010
Very nice! I've been a slave to the packet spice mix for years. No more. Now I can adjust the seasoning to just how the family likes it (ie, less salt, more garlic, whatever) and no more ingredients that I can't pronounce!

Coconut Curry Tofu

Reviewed: Jan. 17, 2010
This was very good. I used red Thai curry paste in place of the curry powder and took the sodium down a notch by adding a little less soy sauce and no extra salt. Next time, I will add fresh coriander. I like to cook tofu about twice a month and I think this will be it for a while. UPDATE: I tried this again, using chicken breast cut into chunks (dredged in flour and browned in olive oil) and this time added the coriander. Even better the next day!

Quinoa and Black Beans

This was fabulous. Made it according to the recipe, but I think you could add just about anything and it would still be great. So healthy and delicious!

Chuck's Favorite Mac and Cheese

Reviewed: Dec. 30, 2009
This was easy and everyone loved it, including the leftovers. I added 1/2 cup light cream, used 1/2 cup bread crumbs with 1/4 cup melted butter, mixing them with finely crumbled crisp bacon for the top. I don't think this recipe can go wrong. We loved all the combined flavors with the sour cream and cottage cheese. This is a keeper.

Crispy Oven Chicken

Reviewed: Dec. 22, 2009
This gets four stars for being that easy. I used low sodium crackers, so next time I will add salt according to the cracker I use. And a little more spice, perhaps some garlic and onion, fresh or powdered. The coating was very crunchy, the ckicken breast very tender and moist. I'd make this again. Easy, quick, tasty.

Melt - In - Your - Mouth Shortbread

Reviewed: Dec. 22, 2009
I doubled the recipe, and whipped it to death in the mixer as a few people had recomended. I found that baking at 375F was good for a maximum of 9 minutes in my oven. The edges were lightly browned, but not overbaked. (One reviewer had said 350F for 9 minutes was perfect, but that didn't work in my oven at all). I did half the batter according to the recipe, but for the second half I added a bit of vanilla, and I liked the next batches a bit better. All in all, they are so melt-in-your-mouth, that there's no other way to describe them. I waited for the cookies to cool COMPLETELY before removing them from the sheet, but I still experienced a lot of crumbling cookies nonetheless. However, my kids were not unhappy being able to feast on the broken cookies and crumbs. These really are exceptional. Next time I will make them teeny little one-bite cookies with a marachino cherry for decoration, just as my gradmother did. Thanks for a great old recipe!!
