Slow Cooker Adobo Chicken

Reviewed: Apr. 21, 2012
This is a quick version of adobo. I recommend you try an authentic stovetop recipe first before a crockpot version so you can make changes based on knowing what it should taste like.

Chicken Tinola

Reviewed: Jul. 9, 2011
I made this for a filipina friend of mine & she commented that it tasted good but the spinach was not something she grew up using. It was too strong a taste. Try pepper/sili leaves. She also makes this with/without the squash. It's not crucial if you just want soup now. What makes this dish distinct is the ginger , onion, & fish sauce(patis). I buy it in the asian market. Without this trifecta, you DO NOT have Tinola. Soy is not a substitution at all. Soy is a plant based product. Patis is animal based and although both are salty, soy is not multilayered in taste like patis. Maybe this is why some of you find it lacking depth when you use soy as a substitution. It's like saying a veggie burger tastes like dry aged prime rib steak. The secret of this broth is Patis. There are no substitutions unfortunately. I've had this made for me, where you dump it all into a pot to stew for a couple of hours & it tastes great. I don't even brown it. You can even substitute beef(don't brown it) for chicken, so my filipina friend tells me. I've had it & it tastes great. Btw I don't use chicken broth. I use water & season to taste(with more patis if necessary, never with more salt which is one dimensional) when the meat's done. You are essentially making a stock from scratch. It keeps the broth rich, the meat tender but the soup delicate. It's supposed to be delicate tasting but NOT bland. On a historical note, patis is the closest modern substitution for the ancient roman ingredient "garum".

Garlic Rice

Reviewed: Jul. 6, 2011
Excellent. This is a go-to recipe each time I have leftover white rice. I did away with the ground pork because I rarely have it anyways. I also used half a head of garlic. I peeled the cloves and then smashed them down. It may sound like a lot of garlic but it was perfect if you like garlic. Instead of garlic salt I used what I had, which was dried, minced garlic. I had a pork chop spice mix which was high in garlic powder and black pepper so used that and added kosher salt. I also didn't have oil, so I subbed margarine. It's easy to use substitutions, and still comes out nice as a base for dishes with sauces.

Frozen Greek Yogurt

Reviewed: Nov. 25, 2009
I have a few modifications that makes this a strong lemony frozen yogurt. I use the entire amount of yogurt in the large carton. mine was 4 cups so I increased the agave syrup to taste. I increased the lemon to an entire lemon. I then zested the entire lemon as well for the extra flavor you get from the natural lemon oils. I love mint so I added about 3-4 more leaves and finely chopped them. I didn't want to drag out my ice cream maker so I poured it back into the original yogurt container and tossed it into the freezer. I'll probably stir it every hour or so until it's firm.

Best Bread Machine Bread

Reviewed: Jun. 10, 2006
I've made this recipe many times now. I first baked it exactly as listed. I found it to be a very soft loaf that rated very high with my son in comparison to several other white bread recipes I have used in the past. Now that I've found the base recipe to be stable, I then started variations. So far all of my variations have turned out just as well. Some of the variations have been a substitution of 10 grain flour mix for the bread flour. Another was all purpose flour with 1 T of gluten per 1 cup of all purpose flour. The last variation I've made was the addition of 1/2 C of granola with pumpkin seeds. It's been just perfect each time. I've not attempted adding milk or eggs to this but I will in the future. I'm very very happy and this is part of my list of successful bread machine recipes.
