Slow-Cooker Chicken Tortilla Soup

Reviewed: Apr. 18, 2015
Tried this for tonight for dinner. Wasn't as good as I expected, but my husband loved it. I made it exactly as specified but it had too much tomato for my personal taste. I may make it again, but cut down on the tomatoes, maybe use fresh tomatoes instead of canned.

Stuffed Eggplant

Reviewed: Dec. 13, 2014
After reading all the reviews I decided to try the recipe as it was submitted. The star rating is based on the original recipe. It was pretty good, but like others I found 1/2 C olive oil was not necessary , and we thought it was a bit bland...so, next time I made it I only used olive oil spray. I also doubled the garlic, added 1 small chopped onion and instead of bread crumbs I used 1 cup of cooked brown rice. With these few changes it was more to our liking. It was a very good basic recipe though. Thanks Elaina.

Amaretto Cake

Reviewed: May 9, 2014
Absolutely delish! I agree that allowing the cake to cool awhile before pouring the glaze works better....and I also made extra glaze to pour over cake after it is turned out. Served with homemade vanilla ice cream it is fantastic!

Golden Rum Cake

Reviewed: May 9, 2014
Excellent....I have made this cake numerous times using a couple of types of rum. I advise using "top shelf" rum. A cheaper rum seems to leave an aftertaste that the premium rum doesn't.

Screwdriver Cake

Reviewed: Jul. 10, 2013
Excellent and easy! I didn't have a cake mix so I just used a basic scratch yellow cake and added a teaspoon of vanilla extract...then followed the screwdriver cake directions. Next time I will add a 2nd layer of glaze and some orange zest to it, as suggested by others. Will make again soon!

Tender Pork Spare Ribs

Reviewed: Jun. 3, 2013
The best! I put the ribs on the grill to brown before I put them in the oven and I used dry red wine instead of beer, because that's all I had, but otherwise I followed the recipe exactly and they where excellent. I will be using this recipe from now on.

Peanut Butter and Banana Dog Biscuits

Reviewed: Feb. 20, 2013
How do dogs know when you are making these biscuits that they are " doggie cookies"! I have made them twice and both times when I start putting the ingredients together my dog comes out to the kitchen and sits and watches me make them!! As soon as they come out of the oven she watches and waits patiently until they are cool enough for her to have a sample. Very weird.... Anyway she loves them and since they are so easy to make she will continue to have a supply on hand.

Black Bean Burgers

Reviewed: Feb. 17, 2013
Really tasty! I didn 't have any jalapeños so I used 2 chipotles in adobo sauce...(2 peppers out of the can). The "burgers" were VERY spicy, but really good. They were hard to make into patties because they were so moist. Next time I will try and dry the beans a little because I think that will help them stick together better. My husband really liked them so this recipe is a keeper. Thanks for the recipe!

English Muffin Loaves

Reviewed: Feb. 8, 2013
Love this! As others suggested I used 1 C WW flour and about 3 C unbleached white flour plus 1/2 t extra salt. I also added the yeast to the warm milk (all milk, 1 1/2 C) instead of putting the yeast in with the flour. No major changes, just a matter of personal preference . Simply delicious, and so much less expensive and tastier than English Muffin Bread at the grocery or bakery....Thanks for sharing.

Hungarian Mushroom Soup

Reviewed: Jan. 29, 2013
Excellent! Made this last night and what a hit! it was slightly thicker than we like so I simply added an extra 1/2 cup of waater and 1/2 cup of milk just before serving. I also didn't have any sour cream, but It was delicious anyway. I will certainly make it again.

Chef John's Italian Meatballs

Reviewed: Jan. 29, 2013
Very good...I used 1lb. ground round and 1lb. Italian sausage. They turned out perfect. I usually add some fresh ground parmagan cheese to my meatballs but didn't add to this recipe, next time I will try adding it. They browned nicely, but it took about an hour...may have been my oven...didn't matter, they were delish! Will definitely make again.

Spinach Quiche

Reviewed: Nov. 21, 2012
Excellent recipe. Because I am watching my calorie intake I did change it up a bit and it still came out delicious! I used low fat cottage cheese and reduced fat cheddar to keep calories down... I also used fresh cooked and chopped spinach and since I didn't have croutons I crushed up some town house crackers for the topping.....my husband thought it was the best quiche he had ever had!

Wine Marinade

Reviewed: Sep. 25, 2012
Great for pork , chicken and shrimp. I used 1/2 C Sweet red wine (that's all I had), so I omitted the sugar and I added a heaping tablespoon if minced garlic...I could not get the molasses to combine so I heated the marinade in the microwave for about 25 seconds...that fixed it. Simple and fantastic. Thanks for sharing.

Chicken Chili

Reviewed: Sep. 18, 2012
My husband and I are trying to cut back on our red meat consumption and I am not too fond of chicken. That being said we think this chili was Very good...I used black beans in place of kidney beans and used 1 chopped Anaheim pepper in place of pepper flakes. I gave it 4 stars because I missed the " beefy flavor"... But I think it is very good for chicken chili.
