Caldo de Res (Mexican Beef Soup)

Reviewed: Jan. 3, 2013
Great recipe and well laid out and explained as another reviewer also wrote. I did a couple things a bit different. I didn't brown the meat first (I usually do and yes it makes a difference). I threw everything but the chayote in to the slow cooker and left it on low. :) Enjoy this is a good one!

PERFECT. This is the 3rd time I am making them and can't wait for my family to enjoy a great meal! I have no Italian parsley so am substituting with fresh spinach. I'm sure it will be fantastic!!

Happy Birthday Cake

Reviewed: Dec. 25, 2012
OH Wow!! This cake is great! Very TASTY,SWEET and had a good density. Close to a pound cake kind of dense. I frosted it just with Cool Whip and made a simple strawberry sauce but it didn't need it at all, altho tasted great together! Definitely a keeper for birthday cakes or anytime you want a special and very simple cake :)

Penne with Spicy Vodka Tomato Cream Sauce

Reviewed: Aug. 20, 2012
I was looking for something to do with the hot Italian sausage links I had cooked, a can of crushed tomato and some julienne red, orange and yellow mini peppers sauteed in olive oil. This was a great recipe, easy and so delicious!! (changes made to accommodate what I had on hand). Sliced Hot sausage instead of red pepper flakes and not out of casing..garlic powder added to tomatoes instead of fresh sauteed garlic. Dried parsley. Sour cream instead of heavy cream. Additionally, a couple pinches of sugar and white wine instead of vodka. Exellent!

Best Strawberry Daiquiri

Reviewed: Nov. 6, 2011
Perfect recipe! Big hit at an all girls get together I had recently. I used frozen whole strawberries, I did make a simple syrup and used 1/2 c of that, sweet and sour mix (I had it so I used it), and but the blender on slushie. Everyone loved them and if too sweet, added a squeeze of lime into the individuals glass to suit their taste :-) Make some non-alcoholic ones tonight for our Sunday movie night! Thanks for this recipe!!

Citrus Carrots and Sprouts

Reviewed: May 26, 2011
Surprisingly Perfect! My sister and I both brought brussel sprouts to Easter. (we obviously didn't check in). Hers had bacon and lots of goodness and mine was tasty, refreshing, and surprisingly the favored dish! Thanks for this recipe. I used frozen brussel sprouts instead of fresh and dried parsley (it was all I had). Omitted the salt and used butter.

Banana Banana Bread

Reviewed: Mar. 16, 2011
fantastically easy, delicious and perfectly moist. Yum! I didn't have enough bananas so I took the suggestion of a fellow reviewer and added in some apple pie filling to make up the difference. I also added in dried cranberries (soaked in oj) and topped the loaf off with brown sugar. OMG! My kids said it was "flame" (that means it was great) ENJOY!!

Tortellini Salad

Reviewed: Dec. 2, 2010
Excellent! I actually doubled this recipe the first time I made it and it was ALL GONE before the end of the night. The only thing I did different was added extra green onions and instead of marinated artichoke hearts, I used the plain artichoke hearts and let them marinate in Italian dressing for about a half hour before adding them in. I also skipped the olive oil, balsamic vinegar, and white vinegar and just used more of the Italian dressing (Wishbone) with some added Italian herb seasoning added to it. Made it simpler and I believe just as yummy! makign it again for another party this month!

Chicken and Asparagus in Cream Soup

Reviewed: Mar. 23, 2010
As I was looking for a recipe for the boneless/skinless breasts I had thawed out, my roomie took it upon himself to season the chicken with Sea Salt, Black Peppercorns (crushed), and Paprika. I caught him just as he was pouring melted butter over it all. So ok, I let the chicken cook in the oven, as recipe specifies, for 30 mins. Took the buttery goodness from the chicken pan and poured it into a 9x13. Laid the mostly defrosted asparagus spears (I used frozen, so omitted the cook time) on the bottom of pan, placed chicken breasts on top and went to make the cream soup/milk mixture. I had cream of celery and no milk, so I used water instead. Poured it over the chicken/asparagus. Sprinkled the Italian Seasoned bread crumbs a little generously. The result, very tasty! But much to liquidy. Definitely need to use the milk or if using water, I'd say cut it in half....Thanks for the recipe. It worked out in the end :-)

My Amish Friend's Caramel Corn

Reviewed: Jan. 15, 2009
WOW!!! I made this Caramel Corn as a part of my holiday gifts and have been making it ever since!! So quick! So Easy! SOOOOO GOOOD!!! Also...once while pressed for time, I only was able to get in 30 mins of baking time and 2 "stirrings" and it was just fine. One hint: follow the directions exactly! Do not raise the temp, be sure to stir every 15 mins minimum. :-)

Company Carrots

Reviewed: Dec. 20, 2008
Surprisingly good and even easier if you skip the baking part all together by steaming or par boiling the carrots which I did. I used a 2lb bag of baby carrots, tossed them with dried "Italian Seasoning" (I'm out of Oregano!gasp!), the butter and some sea salt. Threw it in a dish, tossed together and Voila! I was on my way to a Holiday party. Fab and different veggie in hand. NO Oven! NO Kidding! :-)

Balsamic Glazed Carrots

Reviewed: Jul. 1, 2007
This recipe is so easy and delicious. I did what everyone else did and parboiled the carrots. I mixed the balsamic and brown sugar according to directions, but my balsamic was very strong so I upped the brown sugar, added in a couple pats of butter and luckily I had a little (about a tablespoon, thanks to the kids leaving an "empty" container in the fridge) of OJ that I threw in. I suggest to start with the recipe and then add to it as you need since balsamics vary so greatly.
