Chorizo and Lentil Stew

Reviewed: Mar. 27, 2011
If you want this to resemble a stew/soup, you will need to double the liquid. I don't understand having chorizo with the spices listed. It was just ok. I'm going to stick to my usual lentil soup recipe.

Kalua Pig in a Slow Cooker

Reviewed: May 22, 2009
Awesome! Just awesome. When I removed the roast to shred, I poured the juice into a fat separator. Then combined the meat and juice and let sit for 30 minutes. Yum!

Bacon Wrapped Smokies

Reviewed: Dec. 26, 2008
This takes quiet a bit of time, but they do turn out good. I like by bacon crispy so I may try baking on a cookie sheet next time.

Southwestern Pasta Salad

Reviewed: May 27, 2008
Made this for our Memorial day BBQ and everyone liked it. I started out making it close to the recipe, but found it pretty bland. I changed it by using more lime juice, olive oil-just eyeballed it, a little reserved starchy pasta water, parsley instead of cilantro since I don't like it, green onion, and less cumin since one of my friends doesn't like it. I let it sit for a couple of hours and it was still a little bland and the chili powder was a little overpowering. I added more lime juice, touch more olive oil, quite a bit more salt, black pepper, hot sauce, and a sprinkle of taco seasoning since I had a packet open. It was better but still a little blander than I would prefer - but I left it that way since my friends can't all do spicy. To make it just for us in the future I'll add minced jalapeno, some cubed pepper jack cheese, more hot sauce, use less chili powder (might try a little chipotle chili powder), and cayenne pepper. It just seemed to be missing something...maybe for me it was spicy heat.

Pork and Green Chile Casserole

Reviewed: Feb. 6, 2008
Pretty bland - but it could be a good starter recipe. Needs a lot more spice and flavor.

Fabulous. I put my pork in a crock pot on low for 8 hrs or so then shredded it up. So yummy.

Buffalo Chicken Dip

Reviewed: Feb. 6, 2008
Yum! I layered my dip like a lot of others did. Cream cheese, Ranch dressing, chicken mixed with Franks Red Hot buffalo sauce, and then a Jack/Colby blend. Cheddar can separate and get greasy so I opted for a better melting cheese. My DH loved it and it was so simple.

Very Easy Shrimp Dip

Reviewed: Oct. 12, 2007
Easy and pretty tasty. I combined all the ingredients together instead of layering them and it sit in the fridge for an hour. I might add a little more spice next time...maybe a touch of horseradish. I might try this with fresh shrimp next time.

Shrimp, Leek and Spinach Risotto

Reviewed: Oct. 4, 2007
This just ended up tasting very strongly of leeks and spinach and not much else. I had precooked shrimp that I added right at the end and they didn't pick up much flavor. Raw shrimp that could cook longer might be better in this.

I use sage flavored sausage and add crushed red pepper. Once I add the milk I also add in some thyme. Yummy!

Spanish Rice Bake

Reviewed: Sep. 28, 2007
This was ok. Kind of bland. I would really need to up the spices (cumin, chili powder, red pepper) if I made this again.

Risotto with Chicken and Asparagus

Reviewed: Jun. 7, 2007
Yum. I added a little poultry seasoning to the chicken to add a little flavor, as chicken can get bland at times. Next time I would use 1/2 to 3/4 c wine. I think I used a bit too much. I also used one quart of chicken broth (like I always do when making risotto), adding one ladel-full at a time. Like many other people, I didn't add my asparagus until the last 10 minutes or so. This turned out really nice.

Orange Drop Cookies II

Reviewed: May 14, 2007
These are pretty good. Really different, I like them. Like little cakes with a sweet icing. I used an extra egg, margarine instead of shortening, a smidge less sugar than called for, a splash of orange extract to ramp up the flavor, I chilled the dough prior to baking, and only baked for 9 minutes. I had no problems with spreading. For people with questions on how fats, liquids, etc. affect cookies Allrecipes has a great resource article in Tips & Advice, "Perfect Cookies." Check out the article and you'll learn how to tweak a cookie recipe to your liking with confidence.

Mexican Tinga

Reviewed: May 11, 2007
Yum. My DH and I loved this and it was easy to make. I poached the chicken and shredded it up as I was cooking the onions. Can't wait to make this again!

Annie's Fruit Salsa and Cinnamon Chips

Reviewed: Apr. 24, 2007
A bit hit. I used 1 C strawberries, 3 kiwis, 2 naval oranges, and a small can of crushed pineapple with some lemon juice and a bit of white sugar all mixed together. The chips were a breeze to make and were so tasty. Everyone loved it. Light, easy and refreshing.

Poblano Chile Enchiladas a la Gringa

Reviewed: Apr. 9, 2007
Great recipe. This smelled so good while cooking! I couldn't find any poblanos so I had to use jalapenos. The prep is lengthy but not difficult. Yummy and so spicy. My DH loved this!
