Easy Tomato and Eggplant Soup

Reviewed: Dec. 11, 2012
very easy. i added butter sauted onions, a tablespoon of minced garlic and a tablespoon of ginger paste to give it some spicy depth. served with some bread on a cool november evening it was delicous. with less broth it could be a great pasta sauce, i think. i served it to the husband as a low calorie but high fiber meal for his new low carb diet and he really liked it. thanks for sharing, its a keeper!

Cuban Beef Stew

Reviewed: Oct. 5, 2011
Very good and while it looks intimidating its actually pretty easy. I skipped the potatoes and served this over rice with a loaf of crusty bread. I used up the last of our summer tomatoes which I added at the very end. It was delicious! Try it!

Citrus Turkey Brine

Reviewed: May 3, 2011
So easy! Thanks for sharing! I was wacky and this Easter we served turkey. Living in Southern CA our family has several citrus trees - oranges & lemons - so I wanted to incorporate that into this springtime meal. Well this was perfect! I loved seeing the chagrin on my mother-in-laws face when she had to admit my turkey was delicious! It was juicy, flavorful and fresh tasting!

Pollo con Nopales (Chicken and Cactus)

Reviewed: Apr. 20, 2011
Good & easy recipe. As So. California residents my mother grows cactus aka Nopales in her yard & she harvests this "green meat" throughout the year. As kids we grew up on it. Thanks for sharing with my additions it was a hearty meal that got rave reviews. I served it corn tortillas, a side of rice and limes. My edits: I added tablespoon of chicken bouillon, garlic and a big chunky onion.

Awesome Slow Cooker Pot Roast

Reviewed: Aug. 24, 2010
Great recipe! Thanks for sharing this! I'd never made pot roast before so this was easy for me to "try out" and now it'll be a keeper - my husband loved it. A few things I did - 1) I added a tablespoon of minced garlic and crushed ginger - but that's because we like some spiciness to our meats and 2) I added to teaspoons of flour to thicken the gravy. Overall this was great - its a keeper & recommended!

REAL Homemade Pumpkin Pie

Reviewed: Oct. 20, 2005
I always buy an extra pumpkin so that I can make "fresh" pies before Halloween. This was different than my usual boil method & my boyfriend really enjoyed it! Thanks for sharing!
