Southern Pulled Pork

Reviewed: May 5, 2011
Delicious flavorful and moist! I had to make my own Cajun seasoning (recipe from this site) and to my horror, I had run out of cayenne pepper. I substituted it with chipotle chili pepper which turned out incredible. I also doubled the spices and increased the liquid smoke. We will use this recipe for a variety of dishes in the future. Huge hit in a recovering vegetarian household. Enough said!

Israeli Stuffed Dates

Party hit! I Made these for my daughters 6th grade food fair. She was assigned to bring a food from Israel. I made about 100. Ours was the first dish emptied! We will be making these again soon.

Mizithra Browned Butter Pasta

Reviewed: May 15, 2011
Long time fan of this recipe. I agree with other reviews; it important to get the butter right. Excellent meal for picky kids. We have 5 teenagers (which means lots of extra kids) and have yet to find a kid around that wont eat it! Winco carries Mizithra cheese.

Lime Cilantro Rice

Reviewed: Feb. 5, 2012
our whole family loves this rice. We are big cilantro people and find this to be the perfect compliment to a wide variety of dishes. One of our favorite twists on this recipe is to make it as a sticky rice using traditional Thai rice and following sticky rice instructions found on this site. Thank you!

Delectable Marinated Chicken

Reviewed: Jun. 15, 2011
We had a crazy week and I ended up with chicken marinated for three days before grilling. It was amazing. I substituted sesame oil - about 1/8 tsp for the sesame seeds as I had none on hand. My husband told me to get rid of the other marinade recipes. Kids had seconds. Moms happy.

Mexican Beans

Reviewed: Feb. 4, 2013
You know this is a great recipe when my girlfriend from southern Mexico asks for the recipe. We love heat so the only real change was to add more peppers. I have made this several times and have seasoned around the style of meal I was planning. This is a big reason why these beans deserve 5 stars. This recipe lends itself perfectly to adaptations. ( Imade it exactly to recipe specs the first time which was well received by my family of 7)

Apricot Chicken I

Reviewed: Jan. 21, 2013
A long time family favorite! I have 5 kids which means there are often extra bodies at meal time. I have yet to find a kid who doesn't love this chicken. It is a great starter recipe for kids as they begin cooking as well.

Hawaiian Chicken Kabobs

Reviewed: Jun. 1, 2011
Excellent! The sesame oil is a great touch. This was a fun meal on our camping trip and required no plates or silverware...Perfect! I made a double batch of marinade. One for veggies and one for meat. I used rice vinegar as I had no Sherry on hand. I added red and green bell peppers, zucchini, cherry tomatoes and onions to the pineapples. I skewered chicken separate from veggies . Everything came out so yummy - even the veggies quickly disappeared! Only three days after returning from our camping trip and all five of my kids are requesting this meal again. Love it when healthy food is so well received! Thanks for the great recipe. Serving again tonight!

Oven-Roasted Asparagus

Reviewed: May 18, 2011
Simple and yummy. My Italian grandma makes a similar recipe. I cannot believe it took me so long to try it. Served with Parmesan crusted halibut. Will be making often during asparagus season!

Roasted Beet and Potato Soup

Reviewed: Feb. 20, 2013
Amazingly simple and delicious! I made a double batch then added an extra cup each of beets and potatoes as I wanted to use up what I had. Served eight happy campers for dinner. What a great way to incorporate beets into a meal! This is a fabulous starter soup that can be tweaked in so many ways. Glad I found it!

Banana Crumb Muffins

Reviewed: Feb. 16, 2012
My cousin and I were debating about who makes the best banana muffins. We cracked up when we realized we use the same recipe! We have nine kids between us and both of us think that this is a perfect recipe for them to learn to bake. The littlest ones love to mash bananas! Thank you oh thank you for this family favorite!

Mexican Street Vendor Style Corn Salad

Reviewed: Jan. 17, 2013
Just finished dinner with absolute raves about the corn. Cotija cheese also known as Queso Cotija or El Queso Cotija ,can be found at Winco and Raleys in my area. Delicious and oh so simple. My kids ate it up then licked the pot after! Its a perfect compliment to any Mexican dinner.

Slow Cooker Pulled Pork

Reviewed: May 16, 2013
First I must say it is oh so very simple and delish! I agree with reviews saying that pork loin is not the best choice. Butt or shoulder is great. I have made this recipe several times (10-15!) as my large family loves pulled pork sandwiches. A few drops of liquid smoke added to a full liter of rootbeer gives us our favorite flavor. (If you use liquid smoke, be careful not to over do it. You do not need very much! ) Changing the BBQ sauce can give you a slightly different flavor each time. We love heat in our family so homemade spicy sauce is our preference although this recipe still is wonderful even with your bargain BBQ sauce. Yummy yummy yummy. Enjoy!

Angela's Awesome Enchiladas

Reviewed: May 18, 2011
This recipe is perfect as written. That said, it is also very easy to adapt to what you have on hand. I have made this with both leftover shredded beef and pork, green enchilada sauce in place of red sauce, cream of celery or cream of mushroom soup in place of cream of chicken. All versions were equally well received in my big family! Thanks for the perfect go to recipe that works magic on leftovers.

Creole Seasoning Blend

Reviewed: May 5, 2011
Excellent recipe! The first time I made this I was out of cayenne pepper. I substituted the cayenne for a tablespoon of chipotle chile pepper which turned out incredible. Now I keep both versions on hand. Thank you Joslyn!

Greek Tzatziki

Reviewed: Jun. 1, 2011
This is a great, easy sauce. The only changes I made was to reduce the salt to a teaspoon and increase to a whole cucumber. I followed the advice of reviewers and strained the yogurt. I strained nearly one cup of water out of the yogurt container! If you do not have cheese cloth, a thin dishtowel or good quality paper towel will work. I grated the cucumber and strained the water from it too. In the end it was a perfect texture and gobbled up quickly by the family. We used as a dip ans well as a sauce for falafel and pita sandwiches. This dip keeps getting better as the days go by.

Evin's Indian Apricot Chicken

Reviewed: May 12, 2011
Happiness is watching your family squabble over cold leftovers! We have a large family so recipe was doubled using half chicken and half extra firm tofu. I seasoned and browned cubed tofu separately then added to sauce with the chicken for the last few minutes. Both turned out perfectly. Thank you!
