Peanut Butter Noodles

Reviewed: Jun. 29, 2009
Excellent! So easy to make and very tasty. I doubled the recipe, and added one package of frozen veggies (peas, carrots, corn, and green beans) plus one package of enoki mushrooms that I had on hand. I didn't have any fresh ginger, but the ground ginger was just fine. I will try it with fresh ginger next time, as I'm sure that will be better. I used Sriracha as the chili paste and I used crunchy PB, so I didn't add any peanuts at the end for garnish. I will definitely make this again - a great go-to dish for nights that you don't have much time or a lot of ingredients to cook with!

Spinach Tomato Tortellini

Reviewed: Jun. 24, 2009
This was a very easy sauce to make and definitely beats buying a pre-made version. I used one 12 oz. can of evaporated milk instead of milk and heavy cream. I added sliced crimini mushrooms and chicken (marinated in Italian seasonings, grilled, then cubed). I threw the spinach in at the end, rather than incorporating it into the sauce from the beginning. While it was cooking, I tasted it and it was missing something. I threw in more parmesan cheese (ended up using 1/2 cup total)...still not quite there. More basil...closer. Finally, I threw in a bit of pesto sauce that I had on hand and voila, the sauce was perfect! I will make this again, maybe next time with some lobster instead of chicken and a different pasta.

Cranberry Orange Cookies

Reviewed: Dec. 28, 2008
These cookies were a major Christmas hit! I made them for 4 different parties and received rave reviews at each of them. I really wanted the orange flavor to pop, so I used half orange-flavored dried cranberries (from Henry's Farmer's Market) and half Craisins for the cranberry portion, and used a tad more orange zest than the recipe called for. For the glaze, I used more orange juice and zest. As other reviewers suggested, I placed the glaze in a Ziploc bag w/ the corner cut off and zig-zagged the glaze onto the cookies. I made the cookie dough in advance and refrigerated it, so I could just bake-and-go on party days. Thanks for the recipe...I will definitely make these again and again!

Beer Margaritas

Reviewed: May 4, 2008
Very good and easy to make. These were a hit at my Cinco de Mayo party last night! I substituted the water with 7Up as others suggested and used Corona. Yummy!!!

Gluehwein

Reviewed: Jan. 6, 2008
This Gluehwein recipe was great, and so easy to make. My aunt from Germany makes this every year for the holidays, and this was my first time trying it for myself. It still wasn't quite as good as Aunt Helga's, but still very tasty and I would definitely make this again.

Amazing Pork Tenderloin in the Slow Cooker

Reviewed: Aug. 30, 2007
This was definitely easy to make and smelled delish...but, it was way too salty. I used low sodium soy sauce, but I think the recipe would be better w/o any soy sauce at all. I should've read the other reviews before making it and replaced the onion soup mix with fresh onions. I made it with smashed potatoes, and that helped cut the saltiness. If I do this again, I'll be sure to listen to the other reviewers.

Avocado, Tomato and Mango Salsa

Reviewed: May 7, 2007
This salsa was very good. I made it for a Cinco de Mayo party and everyone liked it. I left a few of the Jalapeno seeds in to give it some extra kick, used a bit more lime juice, and cut the Olive Oil down to 1 Tbsp. Good recipe. Chopping everything isn't the most fun to do...but, is well worth it when you taste all the fresh flavors.

BBQ Pork for Sandwiches

Reviewed: Apr. 19, 2007
When I was attempting this recipe for the first time, my husband moaned and groaned a bit. He doesn't like pork, but said he would try it. I put pork from Costco in the crock pot before leaving for work and came home to such a wonderful aroma. My husband even raved when he came home. I pulled the meat out of the crock pot and pulled it apart, then put it back in the crock pot with a bottle of Annie's Naturals Smokey Maple BBQ Sauce. My doubting husband and I both loved the flavor. He loved it so much that he's requested it several times and it has now become one of our staple recipes. It's such a bonus that it's probably the easiest recipe I've ever made.

Slow Cooker Chicken Taco Soup

Reviewed: Feb. 21, 2007
This soup was very easy to make and the flavors were good. My husband loved it. I thought it was good, but not wonderful. I would make it again, though, because it was so easy and it was a filling meal.

Awesome Sausage, Apple and Cranberry Stuffing

This was awesome. I made it for Thanksgiving and everyone was asking for the recipe. Even people that don't like stuffing were eating it up!

Slow Cooker Adobo Chicken

Reviewed: Feb. 12, 2007
My mom is Filipino and taught me her recipe when I was younger. She is a fantastic cook, so this one isn't quite as good as hers, but it's pretty darn close. Plus the fact that it's so much easier to make, makes it a lot more appealing. I added freshly ground pepper and a couple bay leaves. Definitely use white wine vinegar and low sodium soy sauce and serve over white rice. If you've never had Chicken Adobo, you must try it. If you've made it before, you will love the ease of this recipe and how good it turns out. The meat was so tender and juicy. My husband is still raving about it!

Golden Yam Brownies

Reviewed: Nov. 22, 2006
I would give this recipe a higher rating if I could - it was that good. I was determined to find a yam recipe that my husband would like, and this was it! He couldn't stop eating them. This is a definite keeper! I peeled and shredded the uncooked yams and we really liked the consistency and texture it provided. I made them for the first time at Thanksgiving and everyone asked me for the recipe. I also made them for just about every Holiday Party we went to and they were a hit everywhere. I haven't tried to make the glaze with brown sugar yet, but I will have to give that a shot next time. The name is deceiving, so don't expect a "brownie". We prefer to call them Yam Bars because they are closer to a Lemon Bar, texture wise, than they are a Brownie. But, whatever you call them, they are yummy!!!

Awesome Turkey Giblet Stock

Reviewed: Nov. 22, 2006
Great stock recipe! I made it for use with the Awesome Sausage, Apple and Cranberry Stuffing. Very easy to make and everyone loved the way it smelled while it was simmering.

Blue Cranberry Sauce

Reviewed: Nov. 22, 2006
This is a great twist on cranberry sauce. I made it tonight so that the flavors would be well blended by Thanksgiving. My husband liked it much better once I added in more sugar. I ended up adding almost double the amount of sugar and fresh orange zest. Next time I will try the suggestion of using OJ instead of water. Looking forward to serving this on Thursday!

Shrimp Scampi Bake

Reviewed: Dec. 29, 2005
This was a quick & delicious recipe. I made a few modifications: less butter, more lemon juice, more garlic, and spicy brown mustard. I served this over linguine and my hubby and I loved every last bite! Thank you for the great recipe. I will definitely make this again, and will try some of the other suggested modifications.

Irish Soda Bread Cookies

Reviewed: Feb. 18, 2005
This was such an easy recipe, and the cookies came out great! I used dried cranberries instead of currants, which turned out well. I also needed to use closer to 1/2 cup of buttermilk to get the dough to the right consistency.
