Slow Cooker Carnitas

Reviewed: May 20, 2014
Followed other reviewers' suggestions and, after cooking for the specified time in the crock pot, shredded the pork and then baked it to get it a little crispy. Turned out delicious.

Vegetarian Mexican Inspired Stuffed Peppers

Reviewed: Sep. 6, 2013
Unfortunately...this recipe was unbelievably good. I was hoping for a mediocre dish because it was a bit of a pain to put together. As a working mom with 3 kids, any meal that requires cooking peppers, then cooking rice then mixing up the filling and only then actually assembling and cooking the final dish...well this takes 30 minutes too long and 3 too many pots/bowls for my liking. But it was incredibly good- much better than I expected (I only tried it bc I had 4 peppers sitting in my fridge from my CSA box and couldn't think of another way to use them all). So, clearly this is NOT a weeknight dinner (at least for us) but it is a keeper.

Vegetarian Chickpea Sandwich Filling

Reviewed: Aug. 7, 2013
Delicious. I used green onion and fresh dill because I had both on hand. I also finely chopped some dill pickles to add in- I love the bite that those give. I made it and served it last night on sandwiches for dinner, but it's actually better today after sitting overnight! Just ate the leftovers on some crackers for lunch. Easy, delicious vegetarian option.

The Best Bean and Ham Soup

Reviewed: Apr. 11, 2013
I don't know what happened, but this did not turn out at all for us. The beans were mushy, and the soups was a think, soggy mess. We choked some down for dinner. Will try a different recipe next time.

Grilled Portobello Mushrooms

Reviewed: Mar. 29, 2013
This was outstanding- actually, much better than I thought it would be :-) We got 2 nice portobellos in a CSA box last week and didn't know how to prepare them. So glad we found this- will be making grilled portobellos all summer!

Jalapeno Popper Spread

Reviewed: Dec. 29, 2012
This was a hit- even my 21 month old was asking for "dip". 2 people at the party asked for the recipe, so I consider that a success. Will definitely make again.

Baked Chicken Nuggets

Reviewed: Dec. 29, 2012
These were a hit. My son requested chicken nuggets for his birthday dinner, so I made these. Everyone (including the grandparents) loved them. Highly recommend this version over the processed store bought kind!

Russian Tea Cakes I

Reviewed: Dec. 29, 2012
These were just ok for me. I have made other versions that I preferred- probably just personal preference.

Perfect Turkey

Reviewed: Dec. 25, 2012
Really delicious. We added some brown sugar to the brine just based on personal preference, but otherwise followed the recipe exactly and it was outstanding.

White Chocolate Macadamia Nut Cookies IV

Reviewed: Dec. 9, 2012
These are quite good. I made them for a Christmas cookie contest- so if I win I will update to 5 stars :-) UPDATE: these won second place, but more importantly, I like them more and more each time I eat one. I am adding these to the regular rotation- I love them!

Goat Cheese Arugula Pizza - No Red Sauce!

Reviewed: Nov. 9, 2012
This was ok- made it for a quick late dinner. I only had regular goat cheese and a crappy pillsbury crust, so that probably affected my end result. I might try again with better crust and the seasoned goat cheese (if I can find it).

Light and Fluffy Spinach Quiche

Reviewed: Oct. 24, 2012
This could be the best quiche recipe that I have tried from this site (and I have tried several). My combination was some crumbled bacon, green onion, a couple of handfuls of fresh spinach and cheddar. Otherwise I followed the recipe exactly. Quick and delicious and even looked great.

Jamie's Minestrone

Reviewed: Oct. 16, 2012
This was fantastic. Made minor adjustments: Used 4 C chicken broth and 1 cup water. Large can of tomato sauce (29 oz) I just poured it all in. I subbed cannellini beans for the kidney beans based on personal preference and skipped the green beans. It tasted delicious- can't wait to have leftovers for lunch tomorrow!

Italian Sausage Soup with Tortellini

Reviewed: Oct. 10, 2012
This was outstanding. I followed the recipe exactly with the exception of: using 6 cups of beef broth (1 quart size box plus one can-I didn't want leftover!) and using 1 can petite diced tomatoes (to save time and we don't like big chunks of tomato). I would make both changes again because we thought the soup was fantastic. Reheated leftovers for lunch and it might even be better the next day. A keeper.

Sesame Green Beans

Reviewed: Sep. 17, 2012
I was looking for a new way to prepare green beans and tried this last night- it was outstanding! The only change I made was to sub sesame seed oil for the olive oil- it really gave a nice deep flavor.

Grandmother's Buttermilk Cornbread

Reviewed: Sep. 8, 2012
This was outstanding. Everyone loved it. It held together much better than the box mix, so was much better for the kids. Will definitely make this again.

Mouse's Macaroni and Cheese

Reviewed: Aug. 27, 2012
So I hate using 'processed cheese product' and would usually have skipped this recipe. But I had a ton of leftover pasta and a block of velveeta in the fridge, so decided to make it. This recipe is really outstanding- my husband and kids devoured it. I guess I will have to make an exception to using Velveeta :-)

Mexican Bean Salad

Reviewed: Aug. 27, 2012
This is really outstanding. I skipped the kidney beans (personal preference) and didn't add cilantro bc I didn't have any on hand- but this was still delicious! I don't usually like bean salads, but now I am converted. I will be making this again and again.

Jenny's Grilled Chicken Breasts

Reviewed: Jul. 7, 2012
This was quick, easy and really tasty. Husband and 4, 3, and 1 year old all loved it. This is great for nights when I don't have time (or forget to) marinate.
