Kalua Pig in a Slow Cooker

Reviewed: Jun. 29, 2009
A wonderful recipe. I never really know how to cook a pork butt and found this recipe very helpful. I served this double portion over a Luau party and had over 40 people. It went very quick & nothing left. I added 2 whole onion, 2 tsp. salt,4 bay leaves and 5 crushed cloves of garlic while cooking the entire time in the crock pot for more flavoring kick. VERY YUMMY!!!. A definite keeper in the house. Would make it again. Joy

Slow Cooked Corned Beef for Sandwiches

Reviewed: Oct. 9, 2009
After reading some reviews since it got 5 stars I decided to try it. I am giving it 4* because I am not a corn beef person but when I made it, my fiancee was raving and savoring it the whole time during dinner. He even said that I cooked it better than his mother :-). I only used 1 beer instead of 2 for a 5 1/2 lb meat. And added Onion but would skip it next time.

Pumpkin Cake III

Reviewed: Nov. 4, 2009
Delicious , moist and just right...not too sweet. However, I would like to try making it with Unsweetened Apple butter next time. I used 1 & 3/4 cups of sugar only.

Italian Chicken Bow Tie Pasta

Reviewed: Nov. 4, 2009
This dish is very easy & inexpensive to make. Good for large parties also. I bought fresh chicken beast (boneless), cooked and shredded it. It blended right in with the pasta. The farfalle pasta is best suited for this dish. I also added Olives and salad shrimps...perfect!!! My TIP: SHRED the chicken. If you cube it, it separate from the pasta. I would make this again.

Bacon Ranch Pea Salad

Reviewed: Dec. 11, 2009
Very easy to make but it's just okay. It needs more kick to it. I even added a tsp of vinegar but it's lacking something.

Pan-Poached Alaskan Salmon Piccata

Reviewed: Jan. 11, 2011
OMG!!!I got rave reviews for making this salmon served on my new year's eve party of 100 guest. The only changed I made was using less lemon juices. This recipe is served at high-end restaurants and is excellent. Served wth spinach rice & it was perfect. You can actually use red Snapper also instead of salmon and it's also very good. I took the advise of other reviewers and used 3/4 cup white wine while reducting and oh my....No leftovers!!!

Spence's Pesto Chicken Pasta

Reviewed: Jul. 1, 2011
Made this recipe for dinner last night, I had to tweak this recipe a lttle because it is too dry. I ended up adding1.5 cups of water since my family always prefer gravy on the pasta. Here's what I did: Added 1.5 cups water (chicken broth), more S/P, more spinach, 1 .5 cups of pesto and 2 cubes of chicken bouillion. I sude angel hair pasta on this one. I skip the artichokes because i ddn't have it on hand. I also breaded the Thin sliced, cut up chicken breast only because we don't like our meat thick. This is better than chicken scampi.

Garlic Mashed Potatoes Secret Recipe

Reviewed: Sep. 17, 2011
This is a super mashed! Simple & easy to make. I roasted my garlic (whole head sprinkled with EVOO) and the flavor was amazing. Scaled it to 6 servings. WOW!!!I also added mine with Lobster meat (sauteed in eVOO/butter) and mushroom gravy sauce, it's even better than the one from the Continental Resort. Served with crab cakes! It's a keeper! My picky daughter even loved it!

Broiled Tilapia Parmesan

Reviewed: Oct. 5, 2011
Very good & easy to make. The only thing I would like to say is it takes more than 2 minutes to broil the fish, maybe 4-5, i just kept an eye on the fish so it won't over cook. This dish is super. I added about 1/8 tsp of salt & 2 T of Japanese Panko for an extra crunch, other than that, I followed everyhting exactly as is. It's hard not to deviate from the recipe but this one does not need it. It's a keeper

Steak and Bacon Tournedos

Reviewed: Jan. 31, 2012
I am not rating this recipe bc I have not made it yet. Upon reading the reviews, most of you are adding "pesto". Can someone tell me what kind of pesto are being used since there are different kinds of pesto out there? TY.

Simple Whole Roasted Chicken

Reviewed: Feb. 25, 2012
I made this chicken and folowed the direction exactly since it has very good reviews. Unfortunately, it's bland. The meat was juicy but the taste was just ok. Also, my chicken cooked longer than what it stated (even using a convection oven) It needs something else. I will not be making this again.
