Slow Cooker Chicken Taco Soup

Reviewed: Aug. 10, 2014
Excellent recipe! I had to make a couple of substitutions based on what I had on hand: I didn't have tomato sauce, but I had an 8 oz can of chipotle sauce -- definitely kicked it into high gear, so not for the heat sensitive crowd. I didn't have chili beans, but had a can of charro beans to add along with the (drained, rinsed) black beans. I frequently find cooking with beer adds a bitter/metallic taste to the food, but I tempered it by adding some shredded carrot and a tsp of baking soda to counter the acidity, and it was awesome. Don't skip the beer! topped with cilantro, green onions, cheese, tortillas and sour cream for a fantastic meal. Thanks, Patti!

Delicious Ham and Potato Soup

Reviewed: Feb. 9, 2014
This is a great recipe, and I give it 5 stars even though I felt it would be (ONLY SLIGHTLY) lacking had I not tweaked it just a bit. I know everyone cringes about changes, but these are really minimal, and the soup would be very good without them. So here goes: I added a can of white corn, a little bit of thyme and sage, and melted a little cheese into the béchamel sauce before adding. Truly stellar. Thanks, Ellie11, for a fantastic recipe!

African Curry

Reviewed: Aug. 21, 2013
This was quite good! I added more onion and garlic, also some coarsely chopped bell pepper, carrots cut into large matchstick pieces, and chopped celery.Used a spicy curry powder, but I also added a bit of cayenne for extra kick. Thanks for this keeper, Valerie!

Chinky's Mango Bread

Reviewed: Jan. 29, 2013
This came out wonderfully moist and tasty, but I must say it was not enough for 2 loaves, unless you only fill each pan to about 1/3 full. Next time I will up the recipe by 1/2. I added more raisins, and added 1/2 cup chopped pecans. Thanks, Chinky!

Mid-Eastern Chicken Thighs

Reviewed: Aug. 22, 2011
Simple but very tasty! I added some sliced roasted red peppers; otherwise prepared as directed, allowing more generous curry and garam masala as the author suggested in her own comments. Thanks for a great recipe; got rave reviews from my fiancee!

This was FANTASTIC! BF says best chicken lasagna ever. I upped the garlic because we love it, upped the basil a bit, used fresh sauteed spinach (used 3/4 lb., but 1 lb. would have been better)and added 1/2 cup white wine to the bechamel sauce. Wow. Thanks Lisa for an amazing recipe!

Shiitake Angel Hair Pasta

Reviewed: Feb. 3, 2011
Excellent recipe! I had some fresh shiitakes and didn't know what to do with them; this was perfect! Only change I made was to add some thinly sliced mini red and yellow bell peppers to the sauté.

Aw-some Coleslaw

Reviewed: Jan. 29, 2011
Too sweet for my taste, so I cut back the sugar to 1/4 cup and upped the lemon juice to 3 Tbsp and the vinegar (used apple cider vinegar) to 2 Tbsp.Other than that, added some celery seed (what Cole slaw is complete without it?) and it was perfect! Thanks for a great recipe!

Easy Fruit Cobbler

Reviewed: Jul. 9, 2010
Sooo easy to make fresh homemade cobbler! I will use a little more fruit next time, and maybe a little cinnamon, but this was a big hit.

Roasted Asparagus with Herbes de Provence

Reviewed: Apr. 7, 2010
OH....MY....GOD.... This is way too amazingly good to be so simple to prepare! Tried it for the first time with fresh asparagus from my Dad's garden. Could not be more perfect. Our new favorite way to prepare asparagus. Thanks for a stellar recipe! Absolutely no changes necessary.

Garlic Parmesan Olives

Reviewed: Apr. 7, 2010
This really makes those bland canned black olives POP! I was very surprised to find that canned olives are measured by their dry weight, so the 6 oz. can is what would normally be a 14-15 oz can. Great for an appetizer, and awesome atop a salad.

Spinach and Orzo Salad

Reviewed: Sep. 3, 2009
Delicious! I recommend reserving 1/3 of the dressing until just before serving; the pasta absorbs some of it while it's chilling; adding the last bit before serving assures it's not dried out. Fresh basil makes a big difference, too. Thanks for a great recipe, Christine!

Amazing Pork Tenderloin in the Slow Cooker

Reviewed: Jul. 14, 2009
This was good; I added some sage & thyme for more herb flavor. However, I wouldn't use tenderloin next time. It's such a tender cut of meat to begin with; cooking the bejeezus out of it just seems to ruin it. Maybe a chunk of pork loin or butt next time; something with a little more collagen to break down.

Red Lentil Curry

Reviewed: Mar. 14, 2009
I used yellow curry paste, and a can of diced tomatoes rather than puree. It was delicious! Maybe both puree and diced tomatoes would be even better... I plan to experiment with different curry pastes (masaman, red) to see which one is best, but I'll bet they're all tasty in their own way. Thanks for a great lentil recipe which works well as a side or a vegetarian main course.

Burgundy Pork Tenderloin

Reviewed: Nov. 12, 2008
Easy and incredibly tasty... my favorite combination! Only changes I made were to leave out the celery and add celery powder and ground thyme to the seasoning sprinkled on the tenderloins prior to cooking. Delicious! Thanks for a great recipe.

Mild Cheesy Chicken Enchiladas

Reviewed: Oct. 7, 2008
Very tasty! I used boneless chicken thighs and spiced them up before cooking with Adobo seasoning and Chipotle flakes, then chopped them up after cooking. Added a can of enchilada sauce, which I used as a thin layer on the bottom of the pan, then poured the rest over the enchiladas before adding the cheese sauce, tomatoes and olives. Had to thin out the cheese sauce with some milk to make it melt better, but otherwise no worries. Thanks for a great recipe!
