Delicious! I kept the recipe as is, except that I used fresh, homemade beans instead of canned! I added a bit of sour cream and diced tomatoes before serving...so YUMMY!!!

Mexican Style Shredded Pork

Reviewed: Feb. 11, 2013
So delicious! Did tweak it a bit, though, but I'm sure it would have been delicious otherwise. Here's what I did different: I used garlic salt, added an onion cut in wedges as well as a handful of cilantro (still on the stems for easy removal) and 1 can of light beer instead of water. After cooking on low for 5 hours, I took the cilantro out, as well as scooped all the onion. Shredded meat and put back in slow cooker on "warm" for about 2 hours (until dinner time). Meat was so juicy and tender! Served with Mexican rice, refried beans, corn tortillas, chopped onion and cilatro, lime wedges and avocado. : )

Mexican Street Vendor Style Corn Salad

Reviewed: Oct. 15, 2012
This recipe is true to the real Mexican street vendor style. I grew up in Los Angeles where Mexican food is no stranger. From tamales, chicharones, and corn, these vendors are out on the daily (and sometimes nightly) basis. I strongly recommend using cotija cheese and, if you're lucky enough to have it, authentic Mexican cheese. If you can't get either, then try something like crumbled Feta cheese. It's salty enough to mimic cotija cheese. I used Feta all the time when I lived overseas and couldn't get cotija. Corn on the cob, whether grilled or boiled, tastes the best; but when there are no other options, canned or frozen corn will do.

Chef John's Chicken Cacciatore

Reviewed: Aug. 22, 2012
Pretty much followed the recipe as is. The only difference was that I seasoned the chicken with Italian seasoning before browning and doubled the tomato sauce. Other than that, this came out so yummy and it was so quick and easy to do! Definitely a keeper! Thanks Chef John! : )

Pasta and Garlic

Reviewed: Aug. 22, 2012
This is a great "starter" recipe. Once I finished cooking the pasta, I added a bit of olive oil to prevent it from sticking. I also used 2 cloves of minced garlic, 1/2 minced onion and some sliced mushrooms. Only added enough oil to sautee the veggies. Added the Parmesan cheese right before serving. It came out delicious. Definitely a keeper!

Gluehwein

Reviewed: Dec. 30, 2011
Cheap wine is the best!!! Seriously! My husband and I fell in LOVE with this drink while on vacation in Bavaria, Germany. We made this drink with an expensive bottle of Merlot, then did a second batch with a cheaper brand (Barefoot...$5.99 a bottle). The cheaper brand DEFINITELY had the RIGHT taste and smell! Reminded us of being at the Christmas Market at Marienplatz in Munich -after the following changes. The things I did different was scale back the sugar to 1/2 cup and used orange juice instead of water (and still used the whole orange) per bottle. Done this way...it's like you're getting the drink straight from Germany!

DELICIOUS! Followed recipe as stated; just doubled the sauce as per other reviews. It's perfect the way it is and I wouldn't change a thing. Definitely a keeper in my recipe book (well, my virtual one!).

Zesty Tilapia with Mushrooms

Reviewed: Aug. 30, 2010
Followed the recipe as stated. The only change I made was added a splash of white wine as the fish cooked. Delicious! My husband loved it and he hates eating fish.

Campbell's® Easy Chicken and Cheese Enchiladas

Reviewed: Jun. 28, 2010
I followed the recipe exactly. The only thing I added was some shredded cheese on top of the enchiladas as well. Topped enchiladas with shredded lettuce before serving. Really yummy and will definitely make again!

Campbell's® Beef and Mushroom Dijon

Reviewed: Feb. 12, 2010
Simply delicious and fast! I didn't add any water, I just used the juices from the meat. I also added garlic to the meat as it cooked and used a can of Cream of Mushroom with Garlic (we love garlic in our meals). Other than that, I didn't change anything!

Garlic Chicken with Orzo Noodles

Reviewed: Sep. 10, 2009
As other users suggested, I used chicken broth to cook the Orzo. I also added rosemary, basil, parsely and garlic salt to the chicken while it was cooking. I added a few slices of onion as well as 1 whole green bell pepper, sliced, which gave it a nice "crunch". I omitted the olive oil and used a non-stick pan, which worked out fine. The juices in the chicken are enough to avoid sticking/burning on the pan. I also used frozen spinach since I could not find fresh. I also added the juice of 1 whole lemon which added a nice flavor to it all. In the end, this was a super easy and fast meal to make.
