Slow-Cooker Chicken Tortilla Soup

Reviewed: Feb. 6, 2014
Good recipe. Live in Southern California and have spent tons of time in Mexico and I thought this had a very authentic taste, especially considering how easy it was. I made some changes based on what I had a available and our taste. I used a hot enchilada sauce and also added some hot sauce. We like spicy and this had some serious kick! I skipped the water and added more broth. I made this on the stove top. I added raw chicken breast to my broth and let it simmer on really low for a while, pulled it out and shredded it and then added it back in. We topped it with a little queso fresco, lime, cilantro, avocado and greek yogurt (in lieu of sour cream).

Eggplant Parmesan II

Reviewed: Oct. 8, 2013
Wow! I consider myself a pretty good cook, and I have made some yummy dinners using this site for recipes, but this one was AWESOME! I was cooking for two, so just used one large eggplant and adjusted the other ingredients as I went (I'm not very good at following recipes...probably why I am a pretty awful baker!) I used a garlic marinara and a italian herb flavored panko. I'm not sure if the recipe mentioned this, but I sprayed them with an olive oil cooking spray before popping them in the oven, and I think that helped them crisp up a bit. Great recipe that I think would please even picky, anti-veggie people. Definitely worth trying!

Grilled Bacon Jalapeno Wraps

Reviewed: Oct. 8, 2013
Good basic recipe. I boil the peppers for a couple minutes to make them slightly less spicy. I also do half cream cheese, half shredded cheddar. My husband isn't a huge cream cheese fan so I swap half of makes the filling taste like cheddar but still have a creamy texture. After I form the poppers I put them in the freezer for about 20 minutes. I find that freezing them helps the bacon crisp up without the filling melting out too quickly!

White Bean Chicken Chili

Reviewed: Feb. 11, 2013
One of our favorites, we eat it all the time in the fall and winter. To make it easier, I throw everything (except the corn and beans) into the crock pot. I use a jar of a chunky salsa verde. When I get home (about an hour before we eat) I add a can of white beans and corn (sometimes canned, sometimes I will grill a couple ears and then add) and will add more spices if needed. Love how easy it is, and that it is a healthy comfort meal that can be made in the crock pot. I top mine with some cheddar jack cheese, avocado, and a dollop of plain greek yogurt instead of sour cream.

Grilled Buffalo Wings

Reviewed: Feb. 19, 2012
I don't keep soda at home, so improvised and used a sweet molasses type BBQ sauce. Just used a little and it gave a nice slight sweetness for us, we're not huge fans of too much sweet. I will try it with cola sometime. Because I changed the ingredients, my rating is based mostly on the cooking technique, which I think kept the wings flavorful and moist! You do have to tend to the chicken so might not be great for a quick weeknight meal. Great for the weekends though, just grab a beer and turn on some good music and they are done before you know it!
