Ciabatta Bread

Reviewed: Feb. 9, 2010
mmm this is super good! I dont have a spray bottle to mist my bread with so i just put a few ice cubes in the bottom of the oven but I would have liked it to be a little crustier. I added two finely chopped jalapenos and a large handful of shredded cheddar cheese. It is super good toasted and buttered. My dough was of course sticky but not too difficult and it rose perfectly fine.

French Baguettes

Reviewed: Feb. 3, 2010
I am so glad I tried this, I don't know the difference between french bread and french baguettes but this was better than the french bread you buy at the store. I followed the recipe exactly except adding some ice cubes to the bottom of the oven before baking. This to me had the perfect french bread texture, I think bread flour really makes a difference. I usually just use ap flour for breads but i finally bought some bread flour and I am glad i did. not hard to roll out at all (and Im pretty bad at rolling out dough) My first batch was for some reason less stick than my next two batches but even the sticky ones weren't too sticky. Thanks for a great recipe!

Enchiladas Suizas

Reviewed: Dec. 2, 2009
This was my first successful enchilada recipe after many failed attempts with other recipes! The sauce alone is worth making this recipe for! (I did cut back the salt to 1/2 tsp and it was salty enough for our tastes) Other than that I followed the recipe exactly except the first few tortillas I did not dip and then I changed my mind and decided to go with the recipe. The dipped tortillas were much much better. I also put a little of the salsa in each enchilada. I was worried about all the cream so I only used 3/4 cup but there was no problem with there being too much liquid and I'm sure the whole amount would have been just fine! These were perfect! I will definately be making them again and this recipe changed my husbands mind about enchiladas! Thank you for the great recipe!!

Tomato and Avocado Salad

Reviewed: May 13, 2009
Since some reviewers said there was an overwhelming balsamic taste - and also because most vinagrettes have three parts oil to one part vinegar - I started by just mixing in half of the balsamic vinegar. That is how I left it because it was so good, way better than any store bought vinagrette and it couldn't be easier! I quartered the dressing for my half of an avocado and still had enough leftover to top a small salad. It was such good dressing however that if you eat salad, you may as well make the full amount just to have extra on hand.

Apple Crisp III

Reviewed: Apr. 4, 2009
This is sooo much better than the kind with oats and I would definately prefer this to apple pie. It is like amazing apple pie but fresher tasting and incredibly easy to make. I too used half brown, half white sugar.

Tortillas II

Reviewed: Jan. 14, 2009
I was really intimidated by the thought of making my own tortillas but my husband wanted them so I made them and it ended up being very simple. I actually made them last night and we ate them all and then I made them again today for the leftover filling for lunch. The first time I accidently only added 1/2 tsp salt and 1/2 tsp baking powder and they still turned out fine but I think the texture was better today with the full amt of salt and baking powder. I too had to add extra water - almost double and I also used a little more than double the shortening in order to get my flour to the right consistency. Today it took me about 45 minutes from start to finish - including the 15 min resting time with my two year old "helping" and making the rest of lunch. Definately worth it. When rolling the dough, I found that it was easiest for me to flatten it into discs, roll it a bit and then pick it up with my hands and sorta let it stretch pizza dough style- which i have never done before and there was no tossing involved but it gave the tortillas a better shape than just rolling. Also last night I let the dough rest for over an hour and this was unnecessary as it was just as easy to handle today after only 15 min of rest. Thank you for the great recipe!

Mexican Rice II

Reviewed: Dec. 30, 2008
I really like this rice and my husband especially loves this rice. I have made this several times it has turned out great every time. I used 1/2 tsp garlic powder and 1/2 tsp salt because i didn't have garlic salt but it turns out well that way so i won't even try the garlic salt. Also, I think it only needs 2 Tbs of oil, sometimes it seems too oily with three. I don't think my rice puffs before adding the broth and tomato sauce, but it does brown. I add the onions at the same time as the rice because they have to be completely soft for my husband to eat them and they are done at the same time the rice is if you don't cook it at too high of a temp. Thanks for this great recipe, I wont go back to the boxed kind.

White Chili I

Reviewed: Aug. 1, 2008
This is reall good, but I do add some ingredients to make it extra tasty. First I use two cans of great northern beans, I drain and rinse one and per other reviews, I mash and do not drain the other. I use a whole can of chicken broth - about two cups. I add the juice of half a lime before cooking, and the other half when serving. I add both hot pepper sauce like louisianna hot sauce - to taste, and green tobasco. I use two cans of fire roasted diced green chiles. I don't use the dried cilantro - my husband doesn't like it, but I bet this would be great with fresh cilantro, maybe as a topping. I throw everything into a crock pot, omit the oil. I just throw the chicken in frozen and shred it 1/2 hour before serving. I cook it on low all day. When serving, I top this with sour cream, green onions, avacado, cheese and optional chips to put in the bottom of your bolw. Really good!

Easy Slow Cooker French Dip

Reviewed: Jul. 5, 2008
Amazing! I serve on buttered sourdough with provolone cheese that I toast in the toaster oven until the cheese melts a little. I also add a little salt, pepper, onion powder and garlic powder but I'm not sure thats necessary. My husband LOVES this. Important: cook on low for at least 8 hours and like other reviewers said cut up the beef and return it to the juice 1/2 -1 hr before serving.

Appetizer Stuffed Mushrooms

Reviewed: Jun. 27, 2008
Very good! I reduced the amt of garlic powder and onion powder to 1/8 tsp. used sourghdough bread. I sauteed the caps with the rest of the vegetables and I did not let all the liquid evaporate so that the bread soaked some of it up and was not dry. I also splashed a little olive oil over the bread mixture and greased the pan with olive oil. I also used shredded parmesan instead of grated which I think made a big difference. These were easy and quick I will make them again!

Slow Cooker Carnitas

Reviewed: Jun. 19, 2008
Amazing! my husband likes these better than chipotle. Since some reviewers said the seasoning didn't permeate the entire roast, I cut it into quarters or sometimes a little smaller and then apply the rub. I use a two pound roast with one 14oz can of chicken broth and the stated amt of seasoning. So if I were using a 4 lb roast I would probably double the rub.

Tuna Noodle Casserole II

Reviewed: Oct. 10, 2007
I was really happy with how this turned out. It will be an easy, cheap, weeknight meal. I did add frozen peas and I sauteed my garlic first. I took another reviewers suggestion and only put the chips on half so that the leftovers would get fresh chips instead of soggy. I also only used 1/2 the salt and it was plenty. I didn't have the right casserole dish so I just used a 9x13 and it was fine but I used 6 slices of cheese so that it would cover the whole dish.

Vanilla Glaze

Reviewed: Jun. 22, 2007
I liked this but like other reviewers said, not enough milk. I also made it for the bread pudding. I thought it was a little salty. Next time I will reduce or maybe just omit the salt.

Mexican Soup

Reviewed: Apr. 15, 2007
This was the first time I have made soup and it turned out great! My husband said "super duper" and he is very picky and very honest. I did cook the chicken with taco seasoning which I think gave it more flavor. I topped the soup with diced avacados, sour cream and shredded mexican cheese! The avacados were really good in it! The leftovers were excellent as well! I will definately be making this again!

Chicken Milano

Reviewed: Apr. 11, 2007
MMM this was great! I made a few adjustments though. I doubled the sauce and used white wine (chardonnay) instead of chicken broth. This added great flavor but next time I think I will use half wine and half chicken broth or a sweeter wine. I also added thinly sliced mushrooms. It was excellent. My mother in law wanted me to copy Macaroni Grill's chicken Milano and she loved it and so did my super picky husband! Oh and to thicken the sauce I did add a little bit of flour.

Awesome Slow Cooker Pot Roast

Reviewed: Mar. 29, 2007
I love this recipe and so does my husband. Other reviewers said there was too much gravy but I haven't had that problem. maybe because I add a lot of vegetables (carrots, potatos, onions and celery) My husband loves this but usually likes the cranberry roast better. I like both but this one is easier if you add vegetables because you have the whole dinner in one pan.

BBQ Pork for Sandwiches

Reviewed: Mar. 29, 2007
This recipe is awesome, Make sure you dont add too much barbeque sauce because then it doesnt get the right texture after you bake it. If you want it more saucy I would add extra after baking.

Spinach-Stuffed Salmon Fillets

Reviewed: Mar. 29, 2007
I am giving this recipe 4 stars because I didnt feel like the salmon was anything to rave about, just salmon and Im not a huge fan of cooked salmon however the stuffing was really good. I have actually been eating the stuffing like a salad and it is really good. I add a few extra sun dried tomatoes. Also the salmon needed to cook for longer than ten minutes.
