Spicy Chinese Chicken Wings

Reviewed: Feb. 8, 2010
I was looking for an Asian inspired recipe for wings, and chose this because I had all the ingredients on hand. I decided to change the preparation mainly because I think marinating provides a deeper flavor. I started with almost 3 pounds of wings(tips removed) and placed them in zip-lock bag. I mixed the sauce ingredients in the amounts stated (plenty) and mixed into the wings. Refrigerated overnite. Preheat oven to 425. Cover shallow baking pan with foil and coat with cooking spray. Drain marinade and pat wings dry. Arrange on baking sheets and place in hot oven for 20-25 min. turning half-way through. I then basted wings with 1/2 C. (or as needed)bottled BBQ sauce with 1-2 T. of chili-garlic sauce mixed in. Back into oven for 5 min or until brown and gooey. They were delicious and clean-up was effortless!

Asian Chicken Salad

Reviewed: Aug. 7, 2009
We just finished enjoying this tasty salad which lends itself to many variations with on-hand ingredients. I finished off leftover 1/2 rotisserie chicken with a combo of all the greens in my fridge. Added mushrooms, an orange, chopped green onions, radishes and grated carrot. Also took the advice of others and cracked open a pkg of ramen noodles (raw) for the crunch, along with toasted almonds AND sesame seeds. The dressing adds the flavorful oriental essence that makes this a truly special "chicken salad".

Beef and Irish Stout Stew

Reviewed: Mar. 17, 2009
Irish eyes were surely smiling last night after devouring this tasty stew at a family gathering. I took the reccomendation of a prvious poster (luv2eat)and used my crockpot after following all the directions for browning, deglazing, etc. A bit more work, but the flavors are truly more developed by this method. I needed to add very little extra broth and after 4 hrs. on high the meat was as tender as could be. I then added the carrots and continued cooking on low for another 2 hrs. Served over smashed garlic potatoes it was everything I had hoped for. Good thing I doubled the recipe!

Penne with Garlicky Broccolini

Reviewed: Mar. 13, 2009
I have recently fallen in love with broccolini and look for recipes where I can include this healthy vegetable easily. This recipes is a perfect example. I followed directions exactly, but on the suggestion of others, added 1 14 oz can of diced tomatoes. This resulted in a touch of color, taste, and more nutrition. We loved this dish and will add it to our favorites. Thank You!

Chili con Carne III

Reviewed: Mar. 3, 2009
I was intrigued by the unusual technique of this chili recipe. Usually you don't think of making a roux for chile but...it works! Followed directions exactly and spiced it up a bit with some chipotle chili powder and chopped jalapeno,cheese on top and it was perfect for our taste.

Colleen's Slow Cooker Jambalaya

Reviewed: Feb. 23, 2009
I was looking for a crockpot recipe to make on a rainy New England weekend and chose this one. I was not disappointed. The flavorful aroma assured me it would be delicious...and it was! I followed the recipe carefully making a few adjustments based on previous comments(thank you). I used boneless chicken thighs and 3 cloves of chopped garlic for more flavor. I drained the can of tomatoes before adding, using only the chicken broth for liquid, figuring I'd add the tomato juice if necessary. It was not. After 3 hours on high it was perfectly done and enjoyed over a scoopful of brown rice. The andouille sausage and seasonings give it just the right amount of heat. Hubby had 2 servings and I had 1 which left a generous serving each for lunch today. Only this morning did I realize I had forgotten the shrimp which are still in the freezer. Can't wait to try again, next time with the shrimp!

Bourbon-Mango Pulled Pork

Reviewed: Jan. 27, 2009
This recipe is awesome! After eating a lot of BBQ on a recent cross country trip, I was anxious to experiment with various recipes at home in my new slow cooker. I prepared the pork exactly as described and would not change a thing.I did have two different BBQ sauce flavors on hand, one hickory smoke flavor, and the other, believe it or not, a bourbon flavor. Together they really enhanced the flavor to that which I remembered from somewhere on the road. It was even better the next day. I'll look forward to serving this often at summer BBQ's.

Kathy's Delicious Whole Slow Cooker Chicken

Reviewed: Jan. 27, 2009
After years of not owning a slow cooker I decided to try this as the first chicken recipe in my new pot. I followed the recipe exactly, even as to coincidently plating it with jasmine rice and green beans as in the picture! However, the results were not to our liking. I had a five-pound bird (a little difficult to skin), and it was literally falling off the bone at 5 hours looking woefully pale. I ended up taking the cooking juice from the crock pot, adding some mushrooms. sliced red pepper and hoisin sauce and boiling it down to a light syrupy consistency and spooning it over the rice and meat. I also found it extremely salty. I would try using the same marinade ingredients again, but roast it in the oven for a brown, crispy (skin on) bird.
