Jen's Fresh and Spicy Salsa

Reviewed: Feb. 17, 2006
Wow. That is definitely spicy. I wish I could give this a 3.5, because it wasn't my favorite as written, but it could be quite adaptable. I cut back on the green onions as well because I thought it would be too much for us (I only put in 5, and both my husband and I thought the onion flavor was still too overwhelming). But I do like the flavor of it, so I think next time I'll only put in one green onion and not put it in the food processor (we thought it was too potent chopped in there) along with some sweet onion instead for the texture. I also only put in one jalopeno, and not as much hot sauce, and less salt and pepper because I knew it would just be too hot for us. Thanks for the great recipe! I plan on adjusting it to our tastes and making it often!

Swiss Chicken Casserole I

Reviewed: Feb. 17, 2006
Mmmmmmm. :) I made this for my husband, hoping that it was similar to one that I'd received from a kitchen business....and he loved it! I changed it a wee little bit. I put the cream of chicken in a bowl, and used the can to fill it up with 1/3 milk and 2/3 white wine. I just used some leftover dry stuffing that I had on hand, so I don't know, it may have been more than 8 ounces, use your judgment on liquid depending on how much you use and how moist you want it. I also put in some herb and garlic seasonings in the dish with the liquid. I thought it would be sorta bland without it. When I poured it over the dish, I pushed the stuffing down underneath the liquid, because I didn't want dry stuffing and I didn't use the butter (I just used a wee little bit on top instead of what the recipe recommended, I'm trying to cut out some fat from our recipes). It was wonderful! I only gave it four stars because I altered it. Next time, I think I'll put fresh mushrooms in it as well.

Cheddar Bay Biscuits

Reviewed: Feb. 8, 2006
I loved these biscuits! My husband told me they were absolutely outstanding-I added a little seasoning to the biscuit mix prior to baking, but I don't even think they needed it. Great, simple recipe! I have also made these using low-fat Bisquick....don't do it. The consistancy is not the same as the regular!

Spinach Tomato Tortellini

Reviewed: Feb. 1, 2006
This was wonderful, and super easy! I didn't have much time before my husband came home, and it turned out perfectly! I did substitute half and half for the heavy whipping cream (used just a little bit of whipping cream to try to make it lower fat) and I think next time I will use even less half and half, no cream, and more milk to make it even more healthy. I added some fresh chopped mushrooms as well to the sauce, along with some chicken. I also used frozen tortellini, and it was ready in even less time. My husband devoured it. :) We had garlic bread as well, and it was yummy to dip in the sauce. Thanks!!

Slow Cooker Thai Pork with Rice

Reviewed: Jan. 27, 2006
I was excited about this because I spent some time in Thailand and was looking forward to some authentic tastes. I was disappointed. I couldn't find teriyaki sauce with no sodium (I could only find low sodium) so maybe that's why we didn't like it, it was really salty tasting (that was my fault) but we didn't like the overall taste anyway. My husband and I decided it was just okay, sorta bland, and we won't be trying it again. Everyone's tastes are diffent, though, thanks for the easy recipe.

Savory Garlic Marinated Steaks

Reviewed: Jan. 17, 2006
We've now made this several times-both with NY strips (which were excellent) as well as Ribeyes (wonderful as well). We LOVE this recipe, as does everyone who we grill it for,and they always ask for the recipe. My husband likes it with the Ribeyes better (I don't usually care for them) and I like it with NY strips better. We always take care to tenderize the meat well and they turn out wonderful and tender every time. Sometimes I don't have as much time to marinate them and end up doing it around 7 or 8 hours, but they always turn out great! Thank you!
