Italian Sausage, Peppers, and Onions

Reviewed: Feb. 23, 2009
Excellent - brought this to a team meet dinner and it was a hit, esp with the adults! I deviated only slightly from the recipe - I placed a large can of diced tomatoes (seasoned with oregano, basil and garlic)in the slow cooker (on low). I browned 16 sausage links (8 hot/8 sweet) as I cut up one very large spanish onion, 1 green pepper, 1 red pepper & 1 yellow pepper. When the sausage was done I sliced them into chunks and put them in the slow cooker. I added a wee bit of garlic into the pan (after wiping out the sausage fat)and sauteed the garlic & onions, then I added the peppers and a few minutes after that added 1/3 cup of red wine. After most of the wine was cooked into the peppers, I added them to the crockpot and cooked on low for 2 hours. The dish smelled AMAZING and at the dinner later I received rave reviews - I can't wait to make again!

Beer Lime Grilled Chicken

Reviewed: Sep. 10, 2008
GREAT RECIPE!! I've made this a couple of times now and it's a family favorite. I added one beer (Miller Light) doubled the amount of honey and lime juice (also added a couple of squirts of lemon juice), mixed together & set aside. After rinsing off the breasts & patted them down with a paper towel, I scored them and seasoned with adobo (puerto rican seasoning salt - but I think any seasoning salt would be fine), pepper, minced garlic (garlic powder is OK too). I didn't have cilantro either time, but that would also be a great addition. I poured the wet mixture over the chicken and let it sit for 30 minutes, turning the breasts over halfway. My husband grilled them on medium heat for about 9 minutes per side and both times the chicken came out very juicy. The marinade goes thru the entire chicken!! I've made many marinades before but this one is tops because it takes very little time, easy ingredients & perfect result!

Campfire Banana Splits

Reviewed: Feb. 11, 2008
Really great treat for camfires, but pretty messy - that's part of the fun make sure you have plenty of wipes. For the reviewer with the issue with mosquitos - but a dryer sheet in your shirt pocket - mosquitos will stay away.

Breakfast Pizza I

Reviewed: Feb. 11, 2008
This recipie has been a family favorite of ours for years! I have always used two cans of refridgerated crescent rolls and spread them out onto a round baking stone. Cooked up 8 to 10 eggs (scrambled - but don't make them "too done") then placed on top of the crescent rolls then add "toppings" - cut up susage links, ham, different types of cheeses, green pepper - use your imagination. Then cook in the oven on 350 for approx 15 to 20 minutes. Pizza is served!

Reviewed: Nov. 15, 2007
Excellent! I didn't add the zest and served it over white steamed rice with broccoli and it well received. This will be added to the regular rotation.

Irish Potato Candy

Reviewed: Oct. 10, 2007
Excellent Treat! I also made these to "garnish" irish soda bread at a work function. They were so sweet & so delicious - just like the ones I used to have straight from the candymaker in NYC. Make sure you use an electric mixer to mix the beginning ingrediants. Using a utensil for the coconut flakes is fine. Also I had to put the dough back in the fridge every so often to firm up. I also threw in a dash of confectioners sugar with the cinnamon.

Irish Brown Soda Bread

Reviewed: Oct. 10, 2007
I followed the recipe to the "T" and I ended up with an extremely hard crust (Had to use a pizza cutter to cut!) and a not so great tasting bread. I won't be making again.

Chocolate Hazelnut Fruit Crepes

Reviewed: Oct. 4, 2007
Excellant treat!!! Once I saw this recipe, I knew I had to make it right away. I chopped up and spread my banannas and stawberries all over the nutella and it was soooo worth the (VERY) minor effort! Will definately make again..and again :)

Basic Crepes

Reviewed: Oct. 4, 2007
Great basic recipe..my husband & girls liked them and a previous reviewer was correct, if you put your fillings in and serve right when its done cooking, you do not have to reheat it - it will remain hot enough. I do like my crepes a little sweeter so I may add some vanilla extract or sugar next time.

Angel Chicken Pasta

Reviewed: Oct. 3, 2007
GREAT DINNER - This is similar to the "Chicken Jerusalem" recipe on this site..I wanted to double the recipe and had only one can of cream of golden mush soup, so for my second can, I used a cream of asparagus. It's definately worth it to double because it tastes even better the next night over some steamed rice! This is a keeper!

Puerto Rican Steamed Rice

Reviewed: Sep. 26, 2007
I've made this quite a few times now with favorable reviews. I do the following changes. I use chicken broth or boullion cubes instead of regular water and after simmering for 25 minutes, stir from the bottom to "fluff", cover, and let steam an additional 10 to 15 minutes. The rice will separate better and it won't be as sticky and moist.

Carne Guisada III

Reviewed: Sep. 26, 2007
Perfect!! I made this recently for my Puerto Rican husband and he said it was beyond good and very authentic..very similar to what he raised on. It's really good with the steamed rice (also on this site!).

Chinese Cookies

Reviewed: Sep. 26, 2007
This recipe made such a HEAVENLY cookie!! I had some leftover store-bought icing on hand so I made quite a few without the icing, but the cookie is delicious without it. I note other folks used lard, but I couldn't find any at the store so used veg shortning, and I thought they were perfect. The dough becomes crumbly so next time I'll use the egg white mixture to keep it together.

Velveeta® Cheeseburger Mac

Reviewed: Nov. 29, 2004
I used a box of "deluxe" mac & cheese, the kind which has the packet of cheese sauce in it and then made it as the recipe calls. I also added some garlic powder and additional seasonings for some extra flavor. The kids and hubby love it. Much better than the Hamburger Helper and, when paired with a veggie, a good quick weeknight dinner.

Oven-Fried Pork Chops

Reviewed: Jan. 16, 2003
I followed the suggestion of another review and used no fat yogart instead of egg mixture. I thought it was good for a fairly quick meal. I'll use it again.

Ham and Fruit Stir-Fry

Reviewed: Dec. 12, 2002
I made a mistake and added the remainder of pinapple juice to the mixture instead of just the pinapples and, obviously, the sauce was thin but it did not seem to affect the taste that much. I liked it and the kids liked it but hubby didn't like it (it's the fruit mixed with rice thing)...We'll make it again when hubby is away...

Slow Cooker Chicken and Dumplings

Reviewed: Oct. 31, 2002
Very good recipe for working folk. I used 20 oz. of chicken broth instead of water and later when I added the dumplings, I shredded the chicken and just added some Wondra (you can also use cornstarch) to thicken the sauce. (We like ours like a stew). It turned out really good and of course, no leftovers!!
