Black Bean and Corn Salad II

Reviewed: Apr. 4, 2013
Great recipe! I love how colorful it is. Taste is great - the lime juice and cilantro are zingy & fresh and nicely balanced with the creaminess of the avocado. Agree with others about decreasing amount of olive oil. I am making this my go-to recipe for any potluck or gathering.

Rich and Creamy Roasted Eggplant Soup

Reviewed: Mar. 9, 2010
I really like this recipe - made it twice in a week. Made as written except I substituted low sodium chix broth - which could explain why it seemed a little bland. I doctored to my tastes - 1st batch added red pepper flakes; 2nd batch added roasted red pepper. Goat cheese or gorgonzola gives a nice punch. Very easy to prep. As for blowing the top off the blender - don't fill it too much and hold the lid with a kitchen towel.

Corn, Sausage and Pepper Chowder

Reviewed: Feb. 15, 2010
Very tasty - even better the next day. For the most part, I followed the recipe except... In step 1 - sauteed the veggies in a skillet, transferred to pot. In step 2 - browned kielbasa in same skillet, transferred to pot. Mopped up excess grease from skillet with paper towel then deglazed with chicken broth to release the fond then added to pot. I used a bag of diced potatoes which seemed to take a long time to soften. Next time I will use red potatoes the recipe calls for. I also found I needed more chicken broth. I will definitely make again. Thanks for the recipe!

Roast Sticky Chicken-Rotisserie Style

Reviewed: Jan. 13, 2010
Great way to cook chicken - I have to admit, I hadn't considered a low temp for 5 hours. I used a 8# bird and kept spice mix as listed - complete with overnight marinade. Next time I will reduce the salt a bit. Mostly super easy, although I did flip the bird halfway through (started with breast side down). The best thing is no basting required! Chicken turned out very moist. Will definitely make again. Many thanks for the recipe.

Spinach Quiche

Reviewed: Dec. 26, 2009
Four stars - probably my fault since I didn't follow recipe exactly. Good spinach quiche base recipe. Made one ham and cheese and another with bacon and mushroom. I baked them both for approx 40 minutes at home, transported next day and baked additional 20 minutes. Quiches were too wet. Back in the oven for another 15. Very tasty but still moist. I really squeezed the spinach and strained the cottage cheese. Maybe I added too much cheese? Two cups grated or 8 oz ungrated? Will make again.

Tina's Best BBQ Lime Chicken

Reviewed: Jul. 8, 2009
12/7/09 I made & reviewed back in July. I made it again this weekend and marinated it longer - 5 hours - and it was a little too tangy. I think I will cut back on the oil next time. Still a great recipe I'll make again and again. 7/8/09 - This was fantastic! I used boneless chicken breasts (adjusted grill time), kept the same ratio of juice to oil, marinated 2 hours - super great flavor! I reduced the reserved marinade by half and used as final glaze. Thanks for the deliciousness Tina!

Slow Cooker Chicken Taco Soup

Reviewed: Oct. 22, 2008
I made this recipe as stated and found it to be pretty tasty. I will make it again with some tweaking (I like a little more spice). I thought it would be thicker. I drained and rinsed the beans, drained the corn, but added the tomatoes with their liquid. I served the leftovers with some rice - all gone now!

Kathy's Delicious Whole Slow Cooker Chicken

Reviewed: Jan. 22, 2008
Maybe I mis-measured or my slow cooker ran too hot or something, but this just tasted - I did not care for it. I mixed everything all together, using just a 1/4 cup olive oil, and gave a taste test - it was okay. But after cooking all day, it just tasted burnt. The slow cooker was on low all day while I was at work, for 10 hours - two more than suggested. Sorry, Kathy, but I won't be making this again.

Red Enchilada Sauce

Reviewed: Nov. 11, 2007
Followed the recipe pretty much as written except I reduced the basil and oregano to just 1/4 t. Sauce was not watery at all. Good flavor. Will definitely make again.

Brown Sugar Smokies

Reviewed: Aug. 29, 2007
Super tasty but messy. Love the salty/sweet combo and the chewiness of the bacon and the stickiness of the brown sugar. Big hit in my house.

Dinah's Stuffed Mushrooms

Reviewed: Dec. 31, 2005
I wanted to make something different this year for Christmas dinner and thought I'd give stuffed mushrooms a whirl. I read through lots of recipes and reviews and liked this one best. I altered it a bit for fussy eaters who don't like anything crunchy. I sautéed finely chopped mushroom stems, onion, garlic and pepper in the liquid from the clams and 2 T melted butter until softened. Then I combined the sauté with everything else in Step 3 and followed the recipe as stated from there. I reduced the overall butter amount by half. Fantastic flavor, I've been craving them ever since!

This recipe is simple and delicious! After reading several reviews about it, I decided to try it on my family and I made sure to double the recipe. We all loved it! I will definitely make it again!
