Slow-Cooker Chicken Tortilla Soup

Reviewed: Aug. 24, 2011
I've made this twice now. It's really easy and delicious. I use chicken thighs and throw them in raw. I also included a can of rinsed black beans. My kids complained it was too spicy last time so I used a can of diced tomatoes with onions and green chiles, instead of a whole can of green chiles. I also omitted the enchilada sauce and put in a can of tomato paste and a packet of taco seasoning. Cooked on low for 8 hours. Served it with rice to make it more like a stew. Yummy!

Chicken Pot Pie IX

Reviewed: Jun. 28, 2011
Wonderful recipe. I use homemade chicken soup about once a month. A great way to use leftover chicken meat and broth. I add curry powder to give it a nice kick and color. I add potatoes and omitted green beans. Used TJ's pie crust--double crust is the way to go!

Almond Cookies I

Reviewed: Dec. 29, 2010
I also tweaked the recipe according to other reviewers. 3 tsp almond extract, 3/4 cup almond meal, and 1 cup flour. I found that refrigerating the dough and then making little balls helped make these cookies prettier. I finished them off with powdered sugar and shared them as holiday cookies. My young kids loved these. Thanks for sharing the recipe.

French Silk Chocolate Pie I

Reviewed: Dec. 29, 2010
This recipe is the bomb! I followed the recipe to a T, including the beating of one egg at a time for 5 min each. I used pasteurized egg in a carton since the raw egg thing made me a little nervous. But if you are a fan of french silk pie, you will love this recipe.

Erica's Delicious Slow Cooker Beef Roast

Reviewed: Dec. 29, 2010
I used a mixture of this recipe and another one and it turned out great. I had 4 lbs of chuck roast. Didn't have condensed soup so it was 14 oz of regular cream of mushroom. Put in one cup of beef broth, a package of onion soup mix and one cup of 7up. Omitted parsley, less carrots, more garlic. Browned meat before putting it into crockpot. Resulted in a juicy, tender, roast. I think I'll continue to play with this recipe. Next time I won't put in the beef broth but will add red wine and worcestershire sauce. It's a good recipe. You won't be disappointed!

Decorator Frosting

Reviewed: Dec. 29, 2010
I only needed a little bit of frosting for the gingerbread cookies we made for santa this year. This is a great recipe. I only used one stick of butter, eye-balled the milk and vanilla and probably only used 1 1/2 cups of sugar. Didn't use the food coloring. But this recipe definitely helps to figure out the ratio of butter to sugar. Thanks for sharing.

Old Fashioned Onion Rings

Reviewed: Dec. 29, 2010
made this tonight. Delicious! My husband loves onion rings so this was a real treat for him. I cut the rings super thin since that is how I like them. Will definitely make again. Thanks for sharing this recipe!

Cream Cheese Frosting II

Reviewed: Dec. 27, 2010
YUM!!! I halved the recipe since I only needed to frost 12 cupcakes. It was exactly what I was looking for. Thanks for sharing!

Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Muffins

Reviewed: Dec. 27, 2010
I made the same changes as Liz (from Nov '10). 1 cup sugar (instead of 3/4 cup) 1 cup fresh pumpkin puree (instead of 3/4 cup canned) 1 and 1/2 tsp water, 1 tsp All Spice but also added 1 tsp cinnamon. 3/4 cup chocolate chips. Bake at 375 for 15 minutes. I made them as a dessert and added homemade cream cheese frosting. Kids and adults love them!

Simple Whole Roasted Chicken

Reviewed: Nov. 24, 2010
I love making this chicken. I also double the amount of spices. When roasting, I put in on a bed of sweet potatoes and russet potatoes cut into discs. As I dropped the temperature, I basted with melted butter to make the meat even juicier and to help cook my potatoes. Absolutely delicious!

Raspberry Almond Muffins

Reviewed: Jun. 7, 2010
I really loved these muffins but I gave it four stars because I followed some of the suggestions and tweaked the original recipe. Used milk instead of water and added 1 tsp of cinnamon and 1/2 tsp of vanilla. I didn't add the additional almonds because I didn't have any almonds at home. I used 1 cup of sugar and sprinkled sugar on top too. Kids loved them. But I love the combination of almond extract and raspberries. Just remember to reduce the time for 12 regular sized muffins since the recipe is for 6 jumbo muffins--I forgot to do that. Oops!

BBQ Pork for Sandwiches

Reviewed: Feb. 23, 2010
My favorite new recipe. Could not be easier. I used 2 1/2 lbs of pork butt. The only thing I am not crazy about is the smell while it is cooking in the crock pot (stinky feet anyone?). Used Trader Joe's BBQ sauce. My whole family gobbled it all up. Thank you for sharing!

Creamy Au Gratin Potatoes

Reviewed: Feb. 23, 2010
Great recipe. I used a mandolin slicer to get the potatoes really thin. It cuts the cooking time in half and I love the crispier texture on the top. I gave it four stars instead of five because it was a little bland but I didn't add a lot of salt and pepper to taste. I would definitely salt and pepper each layer. I used a monterey jack, cheddar, swiss cheese blend, but next time I want to just use cheddar and see if that will add more flavor to the dish. I also wanted to try it with crumbled bacon next time to make it more palatable to my kids. But it is a good, easy recipe with a lot of possibilities.

Beef Bulgogi

Reviewed: Feb. 23, 2010
This is a great recipe. I am korean and I can attest to its authentic taste. I used yellow onions instead of green onions. As with kalbi, I like to chop up my onions with my hand blender/chopper. I also added a quarter of a korean pear (chopped with the onion) to soften the meat. When you cook the bulgogi, the onions carmelize and it adds such a great taste to the meat (try it with the kalbi recipe too). I also used reduced sodium soy sauce and it was perfect. I used bulgogi meat bought from the korean market. THanks for sharing your recipe!

To Die For Blueberry Muffins

Reviewed: Feb. 23, 2010
These are moist and delicious. The only changes I made were 1/2 wheat and white flour and threw in some ground flax seed. I also added an extra 1/2 cup of blueberries. My kids loved them. Thanks!

Baked Ziti I

Reviewed: Feb. 4, 2010
I make this for guests and new moms--almost everyone has asked me for this recipe. Make sure you use a good sauce. I like to use one that is sweeter like Prego or add sugar, garlic and basil to whatever sauce I am using. It is a nice compliment to the tangy sour cream.

Korean-style Seaweed Soup

Reviewed: Feb. 3, 2010
Good recipe. I like to make this with korean bbq short ribs. While I am grilling the short ribs, I will add six bones to the soup to give it a richer flavor. Thanks for sharing!

Raspberry and Almond Shortbread Thumbprints

Reviewed: Feb. 3, 2010
Awesome recipe. I highly recommend using almond extract and raspberry jam. Something about this combination is just heavenly. Instead of drizzling with frosting, I cover the cookie part (not the jelly center) with powder sugar. It is always a crowd pleaser!
