Maryland Crab Soup
I've never had Maryland Crab Soup before, cripe i've haven't even been to Maryland. I did really like this soup and will make it again in the summer when I sub in some fresh sweet corn and some fresh pacific dungeness crab. I will likely cut a little Old Bay, and add additional beef broth as the broth was delish and a little heat for personal taste. I used canned crab (1.5 lbs and adjusted the other ingredients accordingly) as it was given to me. The whole pot consisting of 14 servings cost me only $ 2.66 to make, frugal indeed, as were the calories. Thanks for the post.

Slow-Cooker Posole
Spouse and I agreed 3 1/2 stars, but it did get better over time. The canned enchilada sauce made the flavor bitter intially, but it mellowed. I think I will try it again with spaghetti sauce, chili colorado sauce, or a homemade or gourmet enchilada sauce. I will lose the sliced onions, either chop, dice or even mince they were too big for the spoon and overwhelmed that bite. I think i may saute with garlic then add to the crock. Overall good recipe, will be fun to play with, frugal calories wise and inexpensive to make. Thanks for the post.

Barbara's Hot Sauce
This was exactly what I was looking for a great hot/taco sauce good enough for everyday use. Will double the jalapenos next time, and add more garlic too.
