Taqueria Style Tacos - Carne Asada

Reviewed: Feb. 28, 2010
This is a great recipe. We really enjoyed it. I modified it though. To make the flank steak more tender, I roasted in it the oven @ 300 for 2 hours. I then chopped it up and flash fried it w/the marinade I had drained off before roasting. In addition, I modified the salsa. I used a single chipotle chile instead. I love the smoky flavor from this chile pepper. The salsa has a quick bite at the beginning, then it is all flavor afterwards. The onion relish/salsa adds an additional element. A final note, I like cotija cheese, but if you don't like the smell/flavor of it (it is strong and pungent) then use montey jack or a sharp white cheddar instead.

Oatmeal Buttermilk Cookies

Reviewed: Oct. 1, 2006
I think if you would add an additional 1/2 cup to cup of oatmeal, it would be better, more like a chewy oatmeal cookie with lots 'o' oats! Great recipe, great flavor, I just thought it needed more oatmeal and it would be fabulous!!!

Rich and Creamy Tomato Basil Soup

Reviewed: Dec. 30, 2005
This soup is going to taste a little sharp when you add TINNED tomatoes. The sharpness probably came from the metal of the can. Tinned tomatoes don't have nearly the amount of flavor as fresh. I used Roma tomatoes, which were EXCELLENT for this soup. I doubled the batch and used 64oz. of Campbells Tomato Juice. Additionally, to add some additional flavor, I used 1 strip of center cut bacon for each tomatoe or every 4 ozs. of tomatoe juice. I dislike cream of tomatoe soup, but this stuff is out of the world. Something about Roma tomatoes and homemade bacon bits in the soup put it over the top. To add the bacon, take the raw bacon and cut it into pieces, then cook it. Save the grease (I know it sounds unhealthy, but it makes the soup killer). After you cook down the tomatoes and puree them, add the grease when you add the cream. Then when serving the soup, take the bacon bits and garnish the soup with them.

I think this should be called crepés and not pancakes. I would rather have the Bisquick kind, at least they are fluffy.
