Calabacitas con Elote (Zucchini with Corn)

Reviewed: Jun. 18, 2011
So easy and so yummy. I used frozen corn instead of fresh cobs. I also sprinkled with feta cheese because I had some left over from another recipe. The flavor is slightly different from cotija, but not enough to notice in the quantity used for garnish and the texture is pretty much identical. This is a really great way to include some very tasty veggies into a meal.

Creamy Chipotle Chicken

Reviewed: Jun. 16, 2011
I was afraid the chicken wouldn't be very tasty since it isn't browned first, but I was so wrong. It was REALLY tender and the cream sauce was WONDERFUL. I served it with Spanish rice and the sauce made the rice so tasty that my husband, who normally doesn't like rice, went back for seconds just to have more sauce.

Italian Beef in a Bucket

Reviewed: Jun. 13, 2011
This is a Wonderful recipe!!! My husband kept coming back for more! I love the tartness that comes from the peppers; it reminds me of German Sauerbraten, but with a bit more spice.

Curried Meatloaf

Reviewed: Apr. 6, 2011
This was really good. The apple and raisins added a hint of sweetness without making it truly sweet. The curry combines with the fruit to give it a very Mediterranean/Mid-Eastern flavor. It really reminds me of Georgian food. In fact, I think I may try it next time with walnuts in place of the peanuts and khmeli-suneli (Georgian spice blend) in place of the curry, but it's excellent just as it is.

Penne Pasta with Spinach and Bacon

Reviewed: Mar. 21, 2011
This really is an excellent simple recipe with a lot of room to customize to taste. I couldn't resist tweaking to add some spice (via fiesta style chiles) and I deglazed the pan with some white wine. Also, I don't see the need for the olive oil since you're using bacon (in fact, I drained off much of the bacon fat). My husband who usually isn't crazy about pasta had seconds and asked for the leftovers for lunch the next day.

Beth's Spicy Oatmeal Raisin Cookies

Reviewed: Jan. 26, 2011
These are GREAT cookies made exactly as the recipe specifies (and it's a great recipe to play with as well). The little bit of clove is what makes them special. My husband says they smell like Christmas. In the last batch, I added some dried cranberries in addition to the raisins, SOOO GOOD! The cranberries added a bright tartness to the cookie that's just wonderful.

Onesy-Twosy Cookies

Reviewed: Jan. 26, 2011
This is a great classic peanut butter cookie. My hubby and the folks at work RAVED about them. The only change I made was to the fats. I used 3/4 cup of butter and 1/4 cup of shortening instead of butter flavor shortening. Cookies came out crisp but chewy and SO full of peanut butter flavor.

Peachy Bread Pudding with Caramel Sauce

Reviewed: Jan. 3, 2011
This turns out somewhere between bread pudding and peach cobbler. The peaches are a great replacement for the raisins that are in most bread puddings I've had. The caramel sauce is AWESOME! It would make a great ice cream topping just by itself. I did tweak a couple of things. Since water doesn't bring any flavor to the party, I replaced the 1 1/4 cups of hot water with some warm milk (about 3/4 cup) and peack schnapps (about 1/2 cup) - WORKED GREAT!

Grilled Ginger-Peanut Pork Tenderloin

Reviewed: Jan. 3, 2011
I made this for New Year's Day for dinner with a bunch of friends. This is a GREAT recipe!! I used Teriyaki instead of straight Soy sauce, so my sauce was quite thick and really coated the pork well. We left the sauce on the pork when we grilled it. The sauce coating does get a little burnt because of the high sugar content, but for us that wasn't a bad thing- everyone was fighting over the crispy crumbs.

Peach Cobbler IV

Reviewed: Apr. 21, 2010
This is just what my mom always made when I was growing up. It's a traditional baking soda cobbler and so yummy! I put in about twice as many peaches as it calls for, but drain off part of the juice so it isn't too sloppy. Serve with whipped cream or vanilla ice cream for an indulgent comfort dessert.

Egg Salad I

Reviewed: Jul. 13, 2009
Really good egg salad! Not mayonaise-y and with a lot of wonderful flavor. I used Hungarian paprika (half hot, half sweet) for some extra kick!
