Oh-So-Good Chicken

Reviewed: Jul. 29, 2013
For a 9x13" dish, I increased some of the ingredient amounts (and added a few others....otherwise, it's too skimpy): - sauteed 10 oz. mushrooms, 1 bell pepper, 1/2 onion, and 2 cloves garlic in butter - 3/4 C yogurt - 2 C cheddar cheese - 16 oz. salsa - 3 C cooked brown rice - 1.5-2 lbs. chicken (boiled) - 1 can black beans - fresh cilantro - diced green onion for the top - makes it pretty! Very good!

Slow Cooker Adobo Chicken with Bok Choy

Reviewed: Jul. 30, 2012
This was quite sour. My first bite, I actually coughed as I swallowed the sour sauce, and my husband and 4 kids looked up at me expectantly....not wanting to taint their view, I said, "it's a bit hot (temperature-wise.)" My 2-year-old said, "sour" about 20 times while she was eating it. If I make this again, I'll do half chicken broth and half vinegar, just to cut down on the sour taste. My friend who lived in the Philippines for 2 years liked it and said that's the way chicken adobo is. I didn't serve it with rice (but with bread) so that probably made it seem more sour. Safeway was out of bok choy, so I used kale and red cabbage, which turned out well (probably healthier than bok choy, too.)

Slow Cooker Teriyaki Pork Tenderloin

Reviewed: Apr. 22, 2009
Great recipe! Very tender and tasty. I served with rice and some steamed broccoli. Trader Joe's didn't have any red chile peppers, so I didn't add any and it still tasted good. I also put in less than half the amount of brown sugar, as I didn't want it too sweet (and teriyaki sauce is sweet as it is.) It turned out great! Next time I'll try to add some chiles or at least some red pepper flakes, as I like a little kick.

Light Southwestern Tomato Pasta

Reviewed: Sep. 11, 2008
This is a tasty, fresh recipe. Changes: Use half the amount of pasta called for. 1 lb. is way too much. 1/2 lb. for 4 servings is perfect. I used whole wheat spaghetti and my family loved it. Use "Nature's Sweet" tomatoes or some type of sugar plum tomatoes - you really need quality tomatoes since this is such a major ingredient. I used twice the amount of fresh cilantro. Use 1-2 teaspoons of fresh basil - much better than dried. I put about 1/4 the amount of sugar, based on another reviewer's recommendation and thought it was fine - probably didn't need any, actually. I echo the other reviewer's rec of using high quality extra virgin olive oil. Also, definitely add chicken. I used fresh Parmesan as well - delicious touch. I served with some warm crusty sourdough bread and steamed broccoli and it was a perfect meal! My husband, who usually prefers tomato ground beef sauce, loved this fresh recipe!
