Refried Beans Without the Refry

Reviewed: Jul. 16, 2006
I didnt mash these up as the recipe instructed, I decided to keep them as frijoles de la hoya. The taste was very authentic and traditional without all the work of having to keep on eye of the pot of beans. It was much easier to make them in the slow cooker. I cooked them overnight and the beans were very tender. I made huevos rancheros for breakfast and served the beans as a side dish topping them with cotija cheese. My hubby gobbled them up with tortillas and salsa ranchera. Awesome recipe! Thanks for sharing!

Bob's Awesome Lasagna

Reviewed: Mar. 14, 2007
I really impressed the hubby with this one. I used ricotta instead of cottage cheesse and I added a package of chopped spinach (defrosted and drained). I also added 1 tbs of italian seasoning to the sauce and about 1/4 cup of fresh grated parmesan cheese.

Grandma's Doughnuts

Reviewed: Feb. 11, 2007
I made these this morining for breakfast since I had a few can of biscuits in the fridge. These were pretty darn good! My 7 year old son and 10 year old nephew loved them! They said they tasted like churros. I used cinnamon and sugar for the topping. Not like doughnut shop doughnuts but very good in thier own homemade unique way.

Chilaquiles II

Reviewed: Feb. 10, 2007
OMG, this is the almost the exact recipe I've been using for years. I learned how to make these from my mom. I like using El Pato brand Mexican style hot tomato sauce and instead of jack cheese I always use Mexican cotija or queso fresco cheeses(Cacique Brand or El Mexicano Brand) (my mom would kill me if I dared to Americanize chilaquiles! She'd consider it sinful!) I also use crema fresca which is a Mexican style fresh cream that gives Mexican dishes a unique cool taste. You can usually find these in the cheese aile where you find all the Mexican cheeses.

French Onion Soup III

Reviewed: Feb. 6, 2007
I thought that this recipe would be bland based on other reviews but I was pleasantly surprised. I made a few adjustments based on the items I had on hand. I used three beef bullion cubes instead of the canned broth (2 cups water x 3 cubes bullion), I also reduced the additional water to 1 cup. I added a splash of worstershire sauce and a dash of italian seasoning. I ommited the parmesan cheese and used whole wheat french bread instead of white and mozarella instead of swiss.

Reviewed: Feb. 5, 2007
Very easy, good and impressive! My 7 year old came home saying his friend's mom had packed him homade potato chips for lunch but that they were too salty. He asked me if I could make some for him too (just not as salty). I found this recipe and my little boy loved them!!!!

Hot and Sweet Dipping Sauce

Reviewed: Jan. 31, 2007
Wow, this was really authentic! I served it with store bought eggrolls from the freezer section and made fried rice and hot and sour soup. My hubby was so impressed he asked me to serve as an appetizer at our superbowl party this weekend!

Taqueria Style Tacos - Carne Asada

Reviewed: Mar. 18, 2007
Let me start by saying that my husband's family is 100% Mexican. They bbq carne asada on a regular basis. My hubby and I decided to throw our first carne asada bbq at our home. I was afraid of how they would rate my cooking but I took a chance with this recipe anyways. I have to be honest and say that I did not measure the ingredients exactly I just sort of eyebald it. I marinated the meat in a big plastic punch bowl overnight (I had 12lbs of meat). My hubby grilled the meat outdoors on our bbq grill and warmed the tortillas over the open flame as well. We grilled green chiles, green onions, nopales (cactus) and made Mexican rice, frijoles de la hoya and three different types of salsas (not the one on the recipe). I did make the onion relish though I did not follow the recipe exactly since its relatively simple to make. I also made guacamole to serve with the carne asada. Everyone was fascinated by the flavor and asked for the recipe. My mother in law said I should marinate the meat for all thier bbq's from now on.

Laura's Quick Slow Cooker Turkey Chili

Reviewed: Jan. 8, 2007
I didnt have all the ingredients so I adjusted as needed. I used one 28oz can of petite diced tomoatoes with liquid instead of 2 cans of tomato soup, added 1 chopped jalapeno for heat, I used onion powder insted of garlic powder since I didnt have any and I replaced the salt with garlic salt (since I had that). I didnt have allspice so I used equal parts of ground cloves, cinnamon, and nutmeg. I thought the mix looked a little dry so I added 1 cup water. It was soooo good. I served it with shredded cheedar cheese, chopped green onions and home make wakiki cornbread from this site. My husband was in heaven!

Chocolate Cookie Cheesecake

Reviewed: Dec. 2, 2006
My hubby loves cheesecake and chocolate so I decided to bake him this cheesecake for his birthday. I dont have a springform pan so I used two 8 inch round cake pans instead. I left out the sugar and cinnamon in the crust and it was perfect. Very rich and oh so sinfull. My sister in law works for the company that manufactures all the cheesecakes for the Cheesecake factory and brings some by every so often. My husband said it tasted like some of the cakes she brings!

Viva Madrid Spanish Chicken

Reviewed: Sep. 7, 2014
I followed all the steps except the dredging in flour. I used chicken leg quarters because that's what I had. I finished it off in the slow cooker on high for 4 hours and it was magnificent! I also added some smoked paprika.

Honey Glazed Ham

Reviewed: Nov. 23, 2006
This is the second year in a row that I make this ham for thanksgiving. Last year the dinner was at my home and everyone loved it. This year, we had it at my sister in law's who claims to have the best ham recipe in the family. I had many requests for me to bring this so I did. My ham was gone before everyone even sat down for dinner! Everyone kept sneaking into the kitchen to take a small bite. The ham my sister in law made was barely even touched! I felt bad for her, but was very proud!!!

Ceviche Self-Portrait

Reviewed: Jan. 7, 2007
Shrimp ceviche is one of the very few things i can make without following a recipes (just from watching my mom make it when I was growing up) but I decided to check out some recipes to see how others make it. Anyways, this is pretty much how my mom made it. Delicious! Only thing I added was some shreaded carrots, green onions, and slided avocados. I like to mix shrimp and immitation crab to mine but shimp alone is also great.

Oriental Pork Chops

Reviewed: Jul. 30, 2007
Tasty! I marinated overnight and grilled on our george forman grill. These were very delicious. Served with a nice salad but I think these would be great with steamed rice.

Mexican Rice III

Reviewed: Jan. 28, 2013
I like the change in this rice. I usually make mine the traditional Mexican way (how my mom taught me) but I have to say this is a nice twist. I enjoyed it very much.
