Slow Cooker Green Chile Stew

Reviewed: Dec. 31, 2012
I just want to throw this idea out to everyone, fresh roast your cumin as whole cumin seed in a dry pan then grind to use, (I have a coffee mill reserved just for my spices). The enhanced flavor is worth the extra 5 minutes. Roasting spices makes even more of a difference than if you roast your peppers before using and everyone knows how much better a roasted pepper is.

Noodles Alfredo

Reviewed: Dec. 6, 2012
As is this recipe is a bit heavy and bland. I used less than half the butter and added a large clove of freshly minced garlic to to the butter and soften until I could smell the garlic odor coming off before adding the cream. I was very generous with the fresh ground black pepper. But now we have a classic Alfredo sauce. :) Add roasted chicken and broccoli for a fast main dish, or one of my favorites is to add smoked salmon.

Orange Herb Roasted Chicken

Reviewed: Apr. 11, 2010
I thought tis was good. The second time made it I I made an orange herb butter first. I ested the the oranges and stripped the leaves off the herbs and chopped them very fine, then mixed it all into the butter. I rolled the butter into a log and let it setup. I did it this way because I love having different butters to use on foods after I roast them. This mix worked well on Salmon the next day. I love the curliers in Nellie's hair!

Mom's Stovetop Pork Ribs

Reviewed: Feb. 25, 2010
I am a fanatic about smoking ribs. You know that low and slow thing. When I read this recipe I was amused that it sort of turned what I do around. Here the ribs a boiled , then browned. The way I normally cook them I smoke them then wrap them in foil and let them sort of steam. Being the type of person that is always looking for a new way of doing thing I gave these a try. Bottom line… does your Mom have any other recipes she wants to share?? If this is an example of what eating in Brazil is like, I want to vacation there and eat my way across the country.

Frank's Famous Spaghetti Sauce

Reviewed: Nov. 16, 2009
As is not close to a 5 star. make a few changes and it could well be a five star recipe. Something I learned from the Italian wife of my brother, while sauting the onions and peppers, added the tomatoe paste and cook it till it starts to gets dark. This will add a great deal of charater and flavor to the finished sauce. I also used only freash herbs. I add the basil and oregano during the last 15 to 20 minutes of cooking because the herbs will have their flavor cooked out if left too long; this way the herbs will still have that bright fresh zing to them.

Chicken Pot Pie IX

Reviewed: Nov. 15, 2009
What is it with potatoes in a Chicken Pot Pie? The addition of poultry seasoning is a must. I used just over a 1/4 teaspoon of , but I also added Savory. This really enhanced the flavor of the slow roasted herbed baked chicken I used. Instead of boiling the carrots I added them to the saute first then the onion and celery, a classic mirepoix. I added a bit more butter then the flour to make the roux. I also added 1/4 cup of white wine. I did away with use of a bottom crust and just used a top crust. It was an outstanding pot pie. I have also used a puff pastry to top the pie with great success. To me the greatest thing about Allrecipes is that I can find great starting points and then run with them. Saves so much time rather than trying to creat from scratch. There are a lot of real good people and cooks on this site, my love and thanks to you all.

Iced Pumpkin Cookies

Reviewed: Oct. 27, 2009
THESE ARE GREAT COOKIES!! Because I am a big fan of spices I added AllSpice to the mix also. I also add 1/2 teaspoon of cinnamon to the glaze for an extra zip. Has anyone tried to use this dough to make a loaf of pumpkin bread instead of the cookies? I have also been thinking of trying to bake in a bundt pan and add some chinesse 5 spice to the glaze. Bet that would turn out great also.
