Family Sicilian Sauce and Meatballs

Reviewed: Apr. 20, 2012
So glad you posted this for all to appreciate! My great grandfather was from Sicily and my great grandmother was from Milan. This is so similar (to the T except for the meatballes) to how we have been raised to make sauce! Very authentic!!! It's the long cooking time that's the key to taking what we call the "green" flavor out of the sauce. Thank you again!

Pumpkin Black Bean Soup

Reviewed: Dec. 12, 2012
One word - Amazing!!! Normally I'm not a huge fan of soup, but my husband loves it. It's getting chilly out so I thought I'd give it a try with our sandwiches the other night. Oh, my goodness - so GOOD!! Even my kids ate it and loved it! Thanks to this recipe, I've been officially converted to a soup eater. In my opinion, you HAVE to add the ham or the soup would miss the mark. I thought that it would throw the flavor off, but I was very wrong. It came out perfect. I used rice vinegar and added a just a dash of cumino. We had leftovers so I brought it to friends and family - everyone asked for the recipe. This soup is even better as leftovers. Definitely will be keeping this recipe. Awesome, thanks for sharing. It's my new favorite go to for chilly fall days!!!

Mexican Brownies

Reviewed: Dec. 28, 2012
These were awesome!! I have so many chile pequins I don't know what to do with them all. The majority of the company that I had over when I made these were hispanic. They didn't get the 'mexican' brownie thing, but for me (a transplant from up north) the addition of cinnamon and chiles made them totally mexican. Yum! I just used plain cinnamon since I'm not a food connoisseur, I couldn't tell the difference. Next time I would probably double the chiles though. Either way, this is my favorite brownie recipe ever! Thank you!!

Anniversary Chicken I

Reviewed: Aug. 5, 2013
Oh so good! I was making this for a 35th anniversary dinner serving around 15 people and because of some reviews was worried about the dish being too salty. Instead of the teriyaki (which did strike me as a little strange) just to be safe, I substituted barbeque sauce. For everything else, I stuck to the recipe and it turned out awesome!! I served it with a prepackaged Asian salad kit from the produce section, and I sliced potatoes and used a heart shaped cookie cutter to punch out the potatoes for roasting. Everything was a smashing success, thanks for sharing!
