Spicy Slow Cooker Black Bean Soup

Reviewed: Sep. 4, 2010
This is good, I dont know if I think of it as soup though, I'm eating over rice and its delicious. I did 2 tsps granulated garlic - I love garlic! 1 jalapeno with some of the seeds/membranes, about 1/2 tsp cayenne and no black pepper - the rest of the spices I kept the same. I also added some chopped green pepper. I love these kinds of meals as you can change it up and serve it different ways, and beans freeze well. It does smell more flavorful than it actually is, but its easy to add stuff to get the taste you want. I love that its inexpensive and can be done in the crockpot or on the stove. OH - mine is not too spicy - but it all depends on the heat of your peppers and types of chili powders/hot sauce. I used the tabasco chipotle sauce - you can always leave out the cayenne and hot sauce and add to taste when the beans are done. OK - I had to come back and change my rating to 5 stars...I've still got my beans cooking and added a bit of flour as I want it to thicken up a bit, but the flavor has just gotten better and I keep eating bites out of the crockpot - I'm going to keep cooking longer to let it thicken, but this is really good!

Tex-Mex Quinoa Salad

Reviewed: May 12, 2009
So good - I did change up a bit to my taste. Used 2 fresh tomatoes, black beans and about 4 green onions. I just squirted the juice of 2 limes in and also added 2 cloves of minced garlic. I didnt add any cheese. This was just delicious and I bet its delicious as is - I just cant help myself and end up changing things around a bit ;-) ETA: I cooked the quinoa in veggie broth and added serrano and jalapeno pepper and some frozen sweet corn (just toss in the bowl frozen) - soooo good! Love this!

Death by Chocolate Mousse

Reviewed: Jan. 10, 2012
Super easy (I used the microwave for the heavy cream and choc. chips) and tastes delicious! I made in a pie pan and had some leftover mousse for the family members that have to eat gluten free. It was a hit with the kids and adults!

Honey Mustard Dressing II

Reviewed: Jun. 4, 2009
Quick and easy and good! I used light mayo and it was still good - could vary the types of mustards to change it up. I added some fresh ground black pepper also. Much better than store bought salad dressing.

Fast and Easy Spinach with Shallots

Reviewed: Feb. 13, 2010
YUM! I read the reviews first, so I added some fresh minced garlic and at the end splashed a bit of balsamic vinegar over the spinach - so simple and delicious.

Honey Bran Muffins

Reviewed: Mar. 10, 2010
These are great! I used pineapple juice, three cups of raisin bran (raisins picked out, haha) and one cup of all bran cereal. I mushed the cereals up and let the batter sit overnight - baked in the morning for 18 min. I also did 1/4 cup of oil and 1/4 cup applesauce. I love the honey taste. Next time I'll sneak in a bit of whole wheat pastry flour or spelt flour :-)

Avocado, Tomato and Mango Salsa

Reviewed: May 30, 2010
This was a hit! I increased everything except the tomato (I didnt have enough) and I just drizzled a tiny bit of olive oil on - not sure why its needed, but I figured I'd add a bit as I love olive oil. I loved it and even got some people that don't like mango to try and they liked it too :-) I just made this again - kind of eyeballed my ingredients and tasted as I went, used white onion and added black beans and corn - I LOVE it!!! Thanks for this recipe - it is among my all time favorite salsas!!

Cinnamon Bread Delight

Reviewed: Jun. 8, 2010
This stuff is wonderful! It tastes like the Amish Friendship bread that I receive every once in a while, but without the work of the starter. Mine doesn't come out pretty, the middle always sinks - but it tastes delicious. I had to use a cup of oil as I didn't have any applesauce, and put in 3 tsps of cinnamon instead of 2, and sprinkled the cinnamon sugar on the bottom of the pans and the top of the loaves. Thanks for the recipe...well, my waistline doesn't thank you...we ate it all in one day its so good!

Stephanie's Freezer Spaghetti Sauce

Reviewed: Aug. 4, 2010
I scaled the recipe back as I only had about 3.5 cups chopped tomatoes, left out the green pepper, sauteed on the stove, extra garlic and extra basil and oregano, used olive oil - I was too impatient and only simmered for an hour, it's delicious! It is sweet, but I like sweet.

Hummus III

Reviewed: Oct. 8, 2010
This is good! I had to thin it a bit with the bean liquid (remember to reserve some or you can use water) - I also added extra parsley and maybe 3 T total of olive oil - I used smoky paprika, next time I will try a bit of cayenne too! I used the full amount of tahini and lemon juice and it was to my tastes (some tahini's are more bitter than others, the jar I have is pretty mild and I like the flavor). I've tried a few recipes and this is my favorite so far! I'm coming back to edit....I believe I've been using to cans of garbanzo's instead of two cups :) I just made a couple days ago, and for the life of me can't remember!! So - keep that in mind when making, you may like it better with 2 cans of beans and everything else the same :) I've made this so much since finding this recipe - it really is good stuff!

Pumpkin Chili Mexicana

Reviewed: Oct. 20, 2010
I made a vegetarian version, used 2 cans of black beans and one can of pinto beans. I increased the spices/seasonings, added extra corn and some chopped green bell pepper also. I blended my tomatoes up before adding as I don't like tomato chunks in my soups/chili's :-) This is really good and so good for you!!

World's Best Lasagna

Reviewed: Nov. 8, 2010
So easy and my DH loves it! I also put the noodles in hot water while cooking the sauce instead of boiling them separate. Turns out just fine. Thanks for the great recipe!

Jo's Rosemary Bread

Reviewed: Nov. 18, 2010
This is GOOD! It does taste like the bread at Macaroni Grill. It turned out softer though, I'd love to get a chewier crust, but I wont complain! I used my bread machine to make the dough and then baked in the oven at 375 for 30 min (I tested at 20...not quite done all the way through). I drizzled olive oil on top and sprinkled with sea salt flakes after I took it out of the oven, the loaf is beautiful and so yummy!

Pumpkin Gingerbread

Reviewed: Nov. 18, 2010
I almost didn't make this but had some extra pumpkin puree left over, I am so glad I did. This is really good!! I also followed the recipe exactly, well, I may have had a heavy hand on the cinnamon and I glazed it....but other than that ;-) Its perfect!! Moist and flavorful and perfect for the holidays!!

Jay's Signature Pizza Crust

Reviewed: Jan. 27, 2011
I finally got around to trying this - it is the best pizza crust I've made! I used my bread machine and let it rise in the machine - rolled out for my large pan with holes - it made a thicker type crust, very bubbly, next time I'll prick with a fork before baking. I baked for 10 min at 475 and then topped it and baked till cheese was starting to brown. Crispy on the outside and bottom and light and airy on the inside - thanks for the wonderful recipe!

Unique Spinach Noodles

Reviewed: Jan. 28, 2011
My first attempt at homemade noodles! I followed DarcieA's advice - used my food processor, did not cook the spinach and did not add any water. I rolled out by hand and cut with my pizza cutter (without rolling first). I let air dry for a bit and then bundled into individual serving sizes, placed on a parchment lined baking sheet and froze (placed in plastic bags once frozen). To cook, I got my water good and boiling and dropped the pasta in frozen, it took mine just a bit over 3 min to cook. I loved it but found it too thick, I may need to invest in a pasta machine to get it thin enough :-) Cant wait to try this again! Its such a pretty green color!

Spinach Basil Pesto

Reviewed: Apr. 8, 2011
Wonderful pesto! I've make it without cheese as I don't care for it, and it's delicious! The first time I also left out the pine nuts as I didn't have any, and the second time, I used toasted walnuts. I add extra basil and just taste as I go to see if I need to add any extra garlic, salt, lemon juice, etc. I dont use all the oil and like to keep some texture, so its not pureed till smooth. Its wonderful on the "Unique Spinach Noodles".

Alabama Fire Crackers

Reviewed: Apr. 12, 2011
Love them! So easy to make and so much flavor. I did take the advice of using less oil, I poured in about 1 cup - but everything else I did the same! These are dangerously addictive!
