Slow-Cooker Posole

Reviewed: Apr. 22, 2012
it was good and easy but next time I will use something other than hominy.. great cooking aroma too. I used one can of red enchalada sauce and one yellow which had the jalapeno in also. I used chicken and beef but think that shredded meat would be better also.

Pepperoncini Beef

Reviewed: Mar. 29, 2012
My dear darling daugher Amber made this for super bowl sunday and now I will be making for Easter Sunday. I like to color outside the lines and not do the typical ham or lamb or ram dish for Easter meat. She did according to recipe and did the provolone cheese and toasted buns but also made grilled onions to go on the top. Who needs Calgon when you cn get taken away by Pepperoncini Beef. AWESOME easy impressive and sinful! Can I rate this a 10?

Slow-Cooker Corned Beef and Cabbage

Reviewed: Mar. 17, 2012
Another successful St Patrick dinner thanks to this recipe. Had a 3# corn beef so only used 3 cups water and 12 oz beer. Cooked corn beef seperate for 6 hrs in crock pot then added carrots. then after an hour poured off juice into large pan and cooked the cabbage. Then combined it all again. Did not do potatoes in mix but did the Pioneer Womans Crash Potatoes and topped with asiago cheese. Added a colorful green dish of sauteed kale and shredded brussel sprouts seasoned with garlic and red pepper flakes. Did the Skillet Soda Bread from Allrecipes using bread flour instead of regular white. Dessert was Pistachio Cake and Pistachio pudding. Put it on my all green dishes table and had a feast. Hubby said "You have cooked many good meals but this my dear was one of the very best"

Tortellini Salad I

Reviewed: Jun. 24, 2010
Mighty tasty and quite versatile. For the veggies I used green onions, carrots, broccoli, chick peas, and used from garden...mint, oregano, basil and parsley. The dressing needs some tweeking for my taste and I will work on that in the future. seems like too much EVOO, did use red wine vinegar and only half a lemon and the zest from the whole lemon. Also added some stevia for sweetener but could use sugar or honey or agave nectar. It is a keeper with some personal touches. Just put out the feta and the fresh grated parmesano regiano for personal topping.

Carrot Chile and Cilantro Soup

Reviewed: Jan. 7, 2010
I have been waiting a long time to review this recipe. I have made it 3 times without the chili paste. I could not find it anywhere and then my DD gave me a bottle for Xmas that she finally found at Whole Foods. When I made the first time I used chili powder mixed in with the cilantro and garlic. We loved the flavor! But I thought that the chili paste was the secret ingredient so was anxious to try as written. Actually I love it with the chili powder and red pepper flakes as it has more of a kick. I do not blend mine in the blender but just mash the ingredients with my potato masher to make a small chunky soup. I had printed this recipe out 2 yrs ago and just made for the first time about 3 months ago. Great, "makes U feel good" recipe. Like chicken soup, says MOM!

Spinach Stuffed Chicken Breast

Reviewed: Jan. 20, 2009
Finally tried this recipe after saving it for a long time. I have read a lot of the reviews and will add my two cents worth. I thought it was good not great but will try it again and after pounding out the chicken i will season it. then i will try to use less liquid in the spinach mix (like less sour cream or perhaps use cream cheese) I will also experiment with the cheese perhaps using a slice of some type on the bottom of the spinach mixture and also on the top. great concept and great presentation.

Fantastic Black Bean Chili

Reviewed: Nov. 8, 2007
to be honest i was wondering how such simple ingredients could create a dish that got such wonderful raves. i could not find fresh chili's so used a small can of. i also thought that was way too many beans initially but it turned out to be just right. would consider using some white beans for variety in the color. i used a 20 oz of chopped tomatoes and lots of fresh garlic. recipe seems to be capable of handling any blend of spices. i combined the ingredients the night before and then put into the crock pot in the am for lunch. YUM topped with sharp shredded cheddar and sour cream and sprinkled with chopped cilantro. hubby said it was a KEEPER!

Apple Bavarian Torte

Reviewed: Jan. 27, 2007
DO NOT MESS WITH THIS RECIPE >> JUST FOLLOW THE DIRECTIONS..IT IS PERFECT! The most impressive and delicious dessert I have had in a long time. I checked out the description of a torte vs a tart and it seems to be a TART (A tart is a pastry dish, usually sweet, similar to a pie, but different in that the top is open and not covered with pastry.) I followed the directions to the T except for the crust and I did not add vanilla. I cut my butter into the flour and sugar and did not want to mix in liquid so added a sprinkle of cinnamon then patted into the bottom of the spring form....i then put the cheese filling on top of that and I thought the recipe said 4 cups of apples for some reason so that is what i used. I sliced them in about 1/4" slices and arranged them on edge sticking them down into the cheese mixture making a circle and then filling in the middle. Baked according to instructions. I then removed from oven and put about a 1/4 cup of peach preserves on the top and then the slivered almonds and put it under the broiler for a few minutes...(watch carefully) It was beautiful and delicious! I even think you could cut back on the sugars somewhat. Divine! just divine and very impressive! thanks for sharing this recipe! Yes I am a food critic! and still able to impress my friends, thanks the these kinds of recipes!

Roquefort Pear Salad

Reviewed: Aug. 5, 2006
well this is just the best and so versatile. I usually make ahead of time and just put the avocado slices in a container and also the pears slices. I toss each with a bit of the salad dressing to keep them from browning. the when ready to serve i put my spring greens in the bowl and cover with the pear slices and avocado slices. Then i sprinkle with the slivered onions greens and the pecans which i do with honey instead of sugar. Then I drizzle with the dressing. I use Stevia in place of the sugar in the dressing! Plus I add feta instead of the blue cheese as it is too strong and stinky. Add a sprinkle of dried cranberries and you have one beautiful salad. thanks Jamie! This salad rocks!

Spaghetti Squash I

Reviewed: Jul. 27, 2006
I had a half of spaghetti squash left over from last night and i can only do the spaghetti squash once in awhile for my DH as he is not a real lover of it. SO to allrecipes I went to look for something to do with the rest. I took all the ideas on the reviews and recreated a cold salad with using similar ingredients. Scraped out the SS and added EVOO, just a couple of dashes, and then diced half a red pepper and 1 tomato and a half cucumber (seeded) Tossed in some scallions cut on the bias and 2 cloves of garlic and about a small can of black olives, salt and pepper, Then about 1/2 cup of feta and some snips of fresh basil from my garden along with some fresh tarragon. Cant wait for dinner! Samples were divine! ps I always punch holes in my spagetti squash and then do in the microwave. Let cool, slice and seed. Will try the cooked version in a cooler season. Thanks James!

Salad with Artichokes

Reviewed: Feb. 3, 2005
Nice change for a salad and very pretty! I marinated the onions and the artichokes in the dressing (way too salty per recipe, had to add more olive oil) Did not add any more dressing to the spring greens as the marinade with the veggies was plenty! Would of added black olives but did not have any! thanks for sharing!
