Jalapeno Popper Spread

Reviewed: Jan. 8, 2012
Everyone in my family LOVED this! My family love spicy food, and they gobbled it up with garlic pita chips. I also served tortilla chips, but they seemed to prefer the pita chips with it. The cup of mayo seemed daunting to me, so I used about 2/3 c mayo with 1/3 c sour cream instead. Also added a FULL four ounce can of jalapenos plus a few left in the bottom of a jar I had. My family likes hot stuff, and it was indeed hot. Really does taste like poppers! Thanks for a new "keeper" recipe.

Slow Cooker Carnitas

Reviewed: Dec. 29, 2011
Smelled and tasted great! We ate it on soft corn tortillas or in a bowl without a shell (like chipotle's burrito bowl), topped with sour cream, tomatoes, lettuce, cilantro, squirt of lime juice. I will definitely make again. The only reason I'm not giving 5 stars is that is was way too salty (maybe from combo of salty broth, added salt, and long cook time). Next time I will do half broth/half water and maybe leave out the added salt entirely. Great find, though!

Lentil Tomato Soup

Reviewed: Nov. 15, 2009
I have been making this soup for years and absolutely LOVE it. I forget the name of the cookbook it comes from, but it's definitely a family favorite. I make just a few changes. I use olive oil instead of butter and only 2 T or so. I don't think it affects the taste at all and is less saturated fat. I also saute carrots and celery along with the onion. I use a little more water/broth - or add to it as needed as it cooks. I usually use canned garden tomatoes if I have them. I dump them in and then use the hand blender to lightly puree them in the pan. Saves a step. Also, I have never added the nutmeg - I don't think the original recipe from my cookbook called for that. I'm such a huge fan of the flavors of the garlic, wine, and cloves, that I think I will forgo trying the nutmeg. This is one of the tastiest lentil soups I've ever had. Play around with the proportions to get it how you like it. Delicious!
