Catherine's Spicy Chicken Soup

Reviewed: Dec. 10, 2010
Mmm this stuff is good! Definitely only needs 1 can of tomatoes, and I actually forgot the condensed tomato soup, so it's fine without that, too! I only used 3 chicken breasts and 1 quart of water, and this nearly filled my soup pot! Thanks, Catherine! I like that it's unique enough from the other soups I make to be added to my mix.

Supreme Strawberry Topping

Reviewed: Jun. 5, 2010
For any health nuts out there, this also works very well with 1/3 cup agave nectar instead of the white sugar! Very tasty!

Deep Chocolate Raspberry Cake

Reviewed: Mar. 15, 2010
This cake has a smooth, dense, and crumbly texture as opposed to a springy box-cake texture. It's the kind of cake that makes you want to close your eyes and savor it slowly. Very deep chocolate balanced nicely with raspberry.

Authentic Mexican Breakfast Tacos

Reviewed: Mar. 27, 2011
This was pretty good but not worth adding into the menu rotation. Not very filling, either.

Drumsticks with Peach and Honey

Reviewed: Nov. 13, 2009
This recipe is "just okay" as another reviewer aptly put it. Nothing to brag about, it's not delightfully infused with this delicious peachy taste... maybe if you double the peaches and the honey and marinate everything a really long time... I don't think I'll be making this one again though.

Armadillo Eggs

Reviewed: Aug. 6, 2009
Find the right ratio of spiciness for you. Try carving out all but one of the veins for example... when you leave in too much it's almost unbearable, and if you take all the heat out it's no fun! Very important balance.

Chicken Biscuit Pie

Reviewed: Sep. 28, 2012
As an apple crumble is to an apple pie, this recipe is to a pot pie. Unfortunately, this is a little on the bland side, although still enjoyable enough to try again with variations. I like that it tastes like a pot pie, but the biscuit mix as written isn't very exciting. Additionally, the ingredients should list 1/2 an onion as a whole onion ends up being more than either the carrots or peas! I like the idea of this, but I'm going to look for a different biscuit recipe and a chicken potpie filling to find how to make this better.

Vegetarian Penne

Reviewed: Sep. 22, 2012
This definitely took longer to prep than listed with all the squash cutting up. It's missing something, and I think 1 teaspoon of lemon juice was just the ticket! A little bit of lemon enhances everything... a better alternative than making it spicy or making it non-vegetarian with cheese! ;) Overall good, especially after the lemon.

Firecracker Fried Chicken Drumsticks

Reviewed: Feb. 26, 2011
Simple and great. I marinated mine for two nights so I rinsed the hot sauce off before coating and it was nicely spiced. The amount of cooking time was great. I halved the salt, and used only as much oil as I needed (maybe 1 cup by the end) - this recipe is a keeper!

Baked Teriyaki Chicken

Reviewed: Mar. 29, 2010
I made modifications as I went: I prepped as directed but added 2 tbls. of brown sugar and 1/2 cup pineapple juice to give it a sweeter, less soy-sauce taste. To keep the chicken REALLY moist and tender, I waited to thicken my sauce until the end, which allowed the sauce to completely soak through the meat while basting and baking. I did like some others cooking for the first 15 minutes at 400 degrees F then lowering to 350 and cooking 25 minutes longer. After that, I removed the chicken from the oven, set the temperature to BROIL, sliced up my boneless skinless chicken thighs, basted with my newly thickened sauce, and popped in the broiling oven for 5 minutes. After these little tweaks, my chicken wast SO moist, sliced and super flavored like in a teriyaki bowl at a restaurant, and perfectly sweet, not salty.

Quinoa and Black Beans

Reviewed: Jun. 14, 2012
So simple yet so satisfying. I'd say the time frame on this recipe is very realistic too, I appreciate that.

Chilaquiles II

Reviewed: Jun. 13, 2012
Very easy and very good. Tweak the spiciness to taste. I usually use 2 jalapenos and don't take out the seeds. Also I think monterey jack works best for this.

Blueberry Coffee Cake I

Reviewed: Jun. 13, 2012
I make this in a regular 9x13 pan and put half of the topping in the middle right after the blueberries. This is so so good. Works well with whole wheat flour, too.

Ginger Glazed Mahi Mahi

Reviewed: Jul. 28, 2010
This recipe is "okay" but to be honest it really lacked a good ginger flavor. This tasted like wanna-be teriyaki sauce... which is fine, if you want a teriyaki flavor. Wasn't what I was expecting... overall this was good, not great.

Baked Ziti Italian Style

Reviewed: Mar. 30, 2010
Compared to World's Best Lasagna, this doesn't stack up, however, as a meal and a recipe in general, this is great. I liked that although this is very similar to lasagna, it DID have a different taste and is therefore worth keeping. ---- I used 1lb. ground turkey because it's healthy and I happened to have it on hand, couldn't find ziti pasta where I shopped but I recommend but I recommend that others DO (my dish was basically overflowing because penne is thicker I think), and I used dry instead of fresh basil because it was all I had, but it worked out well anyway! Use the directions and it will come out perfectly.

Mini Mexican Quiches

Reviewed: Mar. 18, 2010
It wasn't as dense as I had hoped for, next time I may try 3 eggs and 1/4 cup of whipping cream. I added a bit of spicy sausage as others suggested and was glad for it! That aside, they looked perfect, tasted great, and people were so surprised they were homemade! =D

Christmas Breakfast Sausage Casserole

Reviewed: Nov. 20, 2013
Very simple. I added 50% more egg/milk/mustard/salt mixture because I added 1.5 cups finely diced potatoes, 4 slices of bacon (cut into ½" pieces), and about a cup of chopped dinosaur kale. I cooked as directed and it came out great!

S.O.P.P.

Reviewed: Dec. 10, 2012
I say use the following ratio instead: 16 oz fully cooked smoked sausage, 2 medium size onions, 3 large potatoes, and 3 green bell peppers. To use one pot for this is a bit ambitious. You can, but by the time you stir everything around enough for the onions and bell peppers to cook up nicely you've somewhat mangled the potato cubes. I suggest cooking up the potatoes in a large pot and at the same time basically stir frying your sausage, onion, and bell peppers. Also, if one gets finished before the other you can turn it to low that way and avoid mushy veggies. Honestly I put just a light sprinkling of salt on the potatoes twice, and the recipe tastes great without any additional seasoning!

Slow-Cooker Pepper Steak

Reviewed: Sep. 19, 2012
This needs a lot of adjusting... I like the idea of it though. If I make it again I may sub a can of pineapples for the tomatoes. Alternatively, if I make it as directed here, next time I will add 2 tablespoons apple cider vinegar, and 1 tbls fresh ginger, minced.
