Slow Cooker Mexican Pork Chili

Reviewed: Sep. 1, 2011
Oh, my this is such a wonderful chili with a happy kick! This recipe was suggested to me on a thread I posted looking for slow cooker recipes, so happy I found this! I followed the recipe pretty closely with just a couple of twists....I used chicken broth instead of water/boullion, I used the entire 6 oz can of tomato paste (hate wasting!) and fresh cilantro. I put all of the ingredients in the slow cooker the night before and just let those juices get happy! I put this on low at 7:30 am, shredded and added two cans black beans, and two cans of green diced chilis at 5:00, and we ate at 6:30. Served with tortilla chips, and garnished with cheese, green onion, and sour cream. YUMMY! A keeper and a do over, for sure. Sincere thanks for sharing, SB!

Chicken Marsala Florentine

Reviewed: Sep. 1, 2011
Winner, winner, chicken marsala dinner! This recipe was exceptional, and received rave reviews from my marsala loving husband. I followed the recipe pretty closely, using less butter, added more mushrooms & minced garlic. I added the wine and about 2/3 cup of chicken stock to the pan with the mushrooms and tomatoes, reduced for about ten minutes, then added a good amount of rough chopped fresh spinach, and finished with a splash of heavy cream. Placed the chicken back in the pan with sauce while hubby and I finished happy hour. Yummy! Will make this many more times. Thanks for sharing your recipe.

BBQ NY Strip

Reviewed: Aug. 21, 2011
This is one great steak marinade, especially when using a really nice cut like a NY strip or ribeyes as I did. Really enhances the flavor without masking it. I halved the recipe for two steaks, and made exactly as written ( I used Emeril's Essence for steak seasoning)with the exception of adding some onion powder. Tasted before marinating, and a little oily for me, in need of more acid, so I added a nice splash of sherry (everything tastes better with sherry in my book!). Marinated a little over 8 hours. Just delicious. A definite do-over and keeper. Thanks for sharing with AR!

Portuguese Steamed Clams

Reviewed: Aug. 12, 2011
These were so tasty and delicious. These simple ingredients really turn a pot of clams into a delicious stew...the broth was amazing, provide spoons, too. I just eyeballed the ingredients and added a a cup or so extra chicken stock and a chunk of butter to the mix. Took previous reviewers advice and added some prepared minced garlic, too. Some thin sliced baguette and a glass of cold chardonney, what a fun summer meal. Loved these & hubs raved. Will definitely do again. Many thanks for your recipe.

Chicken Enchilada Slow Cooker Soup

Reviewed: Jul. 19, 2011
What a great slow cooker soup! My husband had three bowls of this. I followed the recipe pretty closely, and made some additions to "veg it up". I added a small zucchini and summer squash, halved and thinly sliced, and a can of rinsed black beans. I used Rotel & just a little more chicken broth. Doubled the cumin (LOVE the stuff) and added some Penzey's Bold Taco seasoning to the mix. This was great! Plenty of left-overs went in the freezer. Sincere thanks for sharing your recipe, a keeper.

Berry Mandarin Tossed Salad

Reviewed: Jul. 2, 2011
Such a beautiful and impressive salad! I can't wait to take this to the BBQ tonight, where I'm sure it will be a hit. I added some raspberries and blueberries, and used praline pecans in place of the almonds. The dressing is delicious. I made it a couple of days ago to allow the flavors to meld for awhile. I doubled the recipe, and added a splash more vinegar & lemon juice for some added tartness, S & P to taste. Sincere thanks for sharing your recipe, Darcie, and thank you to your MIL!

Indonesia Sate (Meat Kabobs)

Reviewed: Jun. 20, 2011
Wow, this was one terrific recipe. So flavorful and delicious. I made the marinade exactly as published using vadalia onion, and marinated my beef about 10 hours. I skewered them alternating vadalia onion with the beef, and hubs grilled to perfection. Served with a prepared thai (ok, I know it's not completely authentic!) spicy peanut sauce, jasmine rice and thai green beans. Soooo good, and a company worthy summer meal. Loved this. Many thanks for sharing your recipe!

Kickin' Turkey Burger with Caramelized Onions and Spicy Sweet Mayo

Reviewed: Jun. 19, 2011
I made this for the recipe group June, 2011. Overall, very good burgers. I would give this a 4* on the burgs, and definitely a 5* on the sauce. Let's start with the burgers. I made exactly as written, used Montreal for the steak seasoning, Baby Rays Vidallia onion BBQ for the sauce. No mesquite seasoning, so I used a couple of shakes of chipotle and smoked paprika. Formed four nice (small when grilled) burgers, five would be tiny. I placed them in the fridge for a couple of hours prior to grilling to help them set up. On the carmelized onions, I used the other onion half for TWO burgers, if making 4 burgers needs at least an entire onion, more if you like lots o' onion. The sauce makes it, it's to die for. I halved the recipe, and it would be plenty for 4 burgers. Just eyeballed the ingredients, except the cayene, just an 1/8 teaspoon. Very very good sauce. Overall tasty, thanks for sharing this recipe.

Plum-Glazed Chicken Kabobs

Reviewed: Jun. 15, 2011
I prepared this for AR recipe group week of 6/6/11. This was a very good, super easy, weeknight grilling recipe. I followed the recipe to a "t", just added a little more sherry to the marinade (love the stuff). I marinated my chicken about 6 hours, and skewered with fresh pineapple and green belle pepper. Served over jasmine rice. Very good. Thanks for sharing this recipe!

Honey Mustard Dressing II

Reviewed: May 30, 2011
This was absolutely delicious. I prepared this as written and found it was a little thick for a salad dressing (which is what I wanted it for), perfect for dipping. So to thin I added about a tablespoon of apple cider vinegar, and a drizzle of water. I also added a pinch of garlic powder, and S & P to taste. So easy and good. Thanks for sharing this recipe.

Meat-Lover's Slow Cooker Spaghetti Sauce

Reviewed: May 24, 2011
This was a truly yummy and scrumptious sauce. I followed the recipe pretty closely but had to make a few changes based on the ingredients on hand. I sauteed the beef, sausage, and onions all in one pot, I used a 28 oz can crushed tomatoes in place of the tomato sauce, and used fresh basil and marjoram. I rinsed the crushed tomato can with about 1/2 cup red wine. I added a heaping tablespoon of minced garlic, and more herbs and spices. Tripled the sugar, I like a sweeter sauce. Since the sauce was very thick, I also added a cup of beef broth to thin a bit. S & P to taste. It was wonderful! A keeper and a definite do over. Plenty of sauce went in the freezer. Thanks for sharing this recipe.

Roasted Asparagus Salad

Reviewed: May 24, 2011
I thought this was a delicious side, with just a couple of tweaks on the dressing. The dressing really needs to be made a day in advance to meld the flavors, I added shallots, and more vinegar & lemon, garlic powder. looking back I would have added less oil. The dressed salad would be great marinated ovenight, this would also help firm up the asparagus. It would also be fine if you just blanched the asparagus, then plunged in ice. I'll do this salad again, but with the changes I mentioned. Thanks for sharing, Anna.

Mexican Blackened Corn

Reviewed: Apr. 23, 2011
Made this for the Recipe Group, loved this! I just sauted the bacon until about 3/4 cooked, then added the other goodies. Doubled the cumin, love the stuff. I found the cheese at a Mexican grocery. I used bi color corn, so sweet and tasty. Like others I found this only browned, but no matter, it was delicious. Nice side for upcoming summer events. Thanks for sharing your recipe.

Garlicky Tortellini Soup With Sausage, Tomatoes and Spinach

Reviewed: Apr. 15, 2011
Absolutely loved this rich and satifying soup! Hubby kept yelling down to the kitchen asking if it was ready, it smelled so good while cooking. I prepared the recipe very closely as written with just a couple of exceptions. I had a zucchini on it's last legs, so I small diced it and sauted with the hot sausage, onions, and garlic, I added about a tablespoon of italian seasoning to the mix, and used 32 oz chicken broth and 16 oz water mixed with a Goya Caldo de Tomate cube. I had a 7 oz box of tri-color tortellini on hand and used that along with frozen chopped spinach. Just delicious. Highly recommended. Thank you for sharing this tasty recipe, Christina.

Mexican-Style Goulash

Reviewed: Apr. 14, 2011
A great weeknight meal! So easy and delish. Since we are two adults who like spicy food I really jazzed it up based on the reviews. I added a heaping tablespoon of prepared minced jalepeno and garlic to the beef with the onions, used Rotel and added a heap of spices to the mix like cumin, acho chili powder, cayene, and chipotle, and fresh chopped cilantro. I also used a half can rinsed black beans, and diced green and red peppers. Smashing, and plenty of leftovers in the freezer. Thanks for this versitile recipe. Will use many times.
