Pork Noodle Soup

Reviewed: May 6, 2008
This was a very easy, very quick heart-warning soup. I substituted the asparagus for a red bell pepper. It brought more color to the dish. I also cooked the noodles separate and served the soup over them. That keeps them from swelling up all the way. A great soup that you can adjust in many different ways.

Quick and Easy Green Chile Chicken Enchilada Casserole

Reviewed: Dec. 28, 2010
Oh my gosh this was so delicious! I will never make enchiladas the traditional way ever again. You get more bang for your buck with this one. I had all day to make it so I went the extra mile and cooked the chicken in the crock pot with a bottle of tomatillo salsa. Then I mixed the shredded chicken with the sour cream and added a can of diced green chiles. I cut the tortillas into 4ths and then coated them in the green sauce. I did not pour more sauce over the layers and I'm glad I didn't. It was absolutely perfect. Not soupy, not dry and oh so heavenly. Oh I did add some chili powder and cumin to my chicken mixture and I also topped the whole thing off with green onions and black olives. This is definitely a keeper! Thanx!

Sausage Egg Muffins

Reviewed: Apr. 13, 2009
This is an absolutely wonderful recipe! Great on the go too. I admit I did substitute some things... I used bacon instead of sausage, added green pepper, onion, tomato and cheese. All in all a great base recipe to make as is or adjust to your liking. The next time I make these I just might have to try a few different types. Ham, spinach and feta... or jalapeno, cream cheese and avocado... or green chiles, jack cheese and tomato... oh the list goes on and on. Thanx again!

Mexican Pinto Beans

Reviewed: Jan. 18, 2009
This is a very good basic recipe for pinto beans. Like other reviews suggested I also had to add a bit more flavor, that's why I only gave it 4 stars. I added 1 tsp salt, 1 tbsp of powdered chicken broth and 1/2 chopped onion. I only had jalapenos on hand so I used 2 of those instead. I also didn't change the water. I like a more concentrated bean broth. I let it simmer for a total of 2 1/2 hours and geez louiz was it good. My husband loved it! I might cut the bacon back a little next time, but I won't tell him that. :) Thanx for the recipe.

Baked Ham

Reviewed: Apr. 19, 2009
This was the easiet ham I have ever made. I didn't have any oven bags on hand so I just poured the soda over the ham in the pan and covered with tin foil. It was so quick and easy I couldn't believe it. I covered it for the first hour and then left it uncovered for the second hour. I also basted it every 30 minutes. My husband doesn't like ham and pineapple (I know... weird), so this was the next best thing. Next time I will try it with Diet Cherry Coke. Yum!!

Spicy Albondigas

Reviewed: Jan. 8, 2012
I'm about to sit down to this for dinner and I can't wait! Just by tasting as I went I had to give it 5 stars. I did cook the meatballs first to cut down on the fat and I also added bell peppers and zucchini. Mmm... mmm... good!! Thanx!

Cobb Salad

Reviewed: Jun. 5, 2007
This salad was wonderful! But 3 cups of green onions... really? I thought that was a bit much, so I reduced it to 1 cup. I also added romaine to the iceburg. Will definitely make again and again.

Unsloppy Joes

Reviewed: Jan. 18, 2009
This was a wonderful spin on regular sloppy joes. Like other reviews suggested I cut back on the chili powder to 1 tsp. I just felt like 1 1/2 tbsp was a lot. I didn't add the carrots either, but I doubled the other veggies to about a cup each. I confess that I did add a lb of ground beef so that way my husband would eat it. I also added a splash of worcestershire sauce, a tbsp of soy sauce and about a 1/2 cup of ketchup. That really gave it the sweetness that it needed and helped hold it together more. BTW - It was great the next morning with a fried egg and hashbrowns on top served open face. :) Will definitely make this again. Thanx!

Chinese Style Sesame Sauce

Reviewed: Feb. 21, 2008
This is a wonderful base sauce. I made it last night and my husband devoured it. I do agree with other reviewers that a cup of sugar is way too much. Luckily I read a lot of reviews before making it. I only used 1/4 cup of sugar and it was still a little too sweet. I added garlic chile sauce instead of chile paste and minced garlic. It was just easier. I also reduced the cornstarch to 2 tbsp. The thickness was perfect. I can't wait to make again with some different adjustments. Thanks!

Mexican Rice III

Reviewed: Dec. 10, 2007
This is defenitely the best mexican rice recipe I've ever come across. I've tried to make it on my own and it was always missing something. The cumin did it. I also added 1/2 tsp of chili powder. I did not use the cilantro because I absolutely despise it and I didn't use any garlic because I just forgot. I no longer need to perfect my mexican rice. This is the one. Thanx!!

Six Can Chicken Tortilla Soup

Reviewed: Jun. 9, 2010
This gets 4 stars just for the ease of it. As far as taste goes, pretty good considering it came from only cans. Of course fresh is best but I like to sub a can of hominy for the corn. It really gives it a more "authentic" flavor. Add some cumin and chili powder and you've got a 5 star winner.
