This is simple and flavorful. We've made it at least a dozen times in our house.

Fajita Marinade

Reviewed: Mar. 17, 2014
I omitted the beef broth as we are on a special diet and it still turned out fabulous. My family raved and raved about this marinade.

I absolutely love these healthy muffins and the ginger really is what makes them special. I wouldn't change a thing about this recipe.

Brown Sugar Meatloaf

Reviewed: Jul. 25, 2012
My husband HATED this meatloaf and complained it was too sweet. I on the other hand LOVED it and would make it again in a minute. It was very good. Instead of using crackers, I added some Stove Top stuffing to the ground beef and mixed it up. Sooo yummy!

Chicken and Red Wine Sauce

Reviewed: Feb. 11, 2012
I made this last night for dinner. We served it over roasted veggies (peppers/onions/carrots/mushrooms). I thought this recipe was delicious, but definitely the sauce needed some adjustments. I like having lots of extra sauce with my dishes so I actually doubled the red wine, cut down on the sugar (using 1/2 cup per 1 cup of red wine). I didn't have any brown sugar on hand so I added a little maple syrup to white sugar as a substitute. It worked out pretty well (LOL). My husband took extra veggies and put some sauce on them because it was so good. Next time I make this I think I might try adding a little butter to the red wine sauce.

Carnitas Filling

Reviewed: Jun. 12, 2011
I made Carnitas today for my family and used this recipe as a general guide. I feel like this was a good basic recipe but it is missing a couple of key components. I made my Carnitas in my slow cooker. I think this recipe needs additional acid (other than the tomato)to help the meat break down well and absorb the flavor of the seasonings better. I added a couple dashes of orange and lime juice to mine. Vinegar would work too. I also think it would be wise to use a low sodium beef stock in lieu of water. It will only add to the flavor of the dish. I love Rachel Ray's beef stock as it has a nice full flavor and doesnt taste overly salty. I was unable to find a 1-pound pork shoulder roast at the store, ended up with an 8-pound pork shoulder roast instead. I trimmed the roast down and increased the recipe accordingly. At the end of cooking, my Carnitas were still a little lacking in flavor. They were good, they just didnt have a flavor burst. I decided to use some of the juice from the slow cooker and made a homemade carnitas sauce on the stove using stuff I had around the house (tequila, beer, a little starch). I then poured it over the finished meat to add flavor. Yum! I would definitely make this recipe again, but with my own tweaks! Best of luck with your own Carnitas!

Cream Of Asparagus Soup

Reviewed: Oct. 29, 2010
There are a lot of different ways to make this soup and that it can be easily adapted for people who are vegan, vegetarian, or lacto-ovo. Instead of using dairy products, try soy or possibly even coconut milk instead.Next time I make this soup, I am going to try doing a vegan version just for fun. This soup was super easy to make and YUMMY!
