Slow Cooker Chicken Taco Soup

Reviewed: Dec. 11, 2008
Only gave it four stars b/c I didn't have all the ingredients on hand to try recipe 'as is', but my husband and I LOVED the result of what I did have! As others suggested, I used Lt. Red Kidney beans (2 cans undrained) instead of (1 can) Chili beans, kept corn/black beans, onion, tomato sauce, & taco seasonings the same, used (1 can) no salt added diced tomatoes, added 1 Cup of salsa instead of the diced tomatoes/green chilis, & no beer. Also used 3 frozen chicken breasts, cooked on high ~5 hours and everything was done perfectly. Usually I don't add sour cream on top of soups, but with this one, it was a MUST for pulling out the flavors a bit more. Delicious!! UPDATE: used the chili beans as recipe says second time I made this, and didn't like the flavor. Felt like the taco seasoning and the chili beans were too much of the 'same thing,'so made soup 'blander'. Will only use Kidney beans from now on! Excellent recipe!! Thanks!!

Favorite Old Fashioned Gingerbread

Reviewed: Dec. 25, 2012
Excellent gingerbread; although, like many others, I did not make this 'as is.' I needed it gluten free, so I used 1/2 -all purpose gluten-free flour and 1/2 Millet flour instead of regular flour, used 1/4c of applesauce in place of 1/2 the butter, as others did, and 1/4c brown sugar for 1/2 of the molasses (used un-sulfered molasses per other reviewer recommendations), doubled the cinnamon, cloves, and ginger (per other reviewer recommendations), and the rest as is. Baked it in regular loaf pan, for 1 hr 3 minutes so the middle passed the 'knife test', let cool and sprinkled with powdered confectioners sugar, and served still warm...SOOOO good and spicy! Perfect for Christmas gifts!
