Slow Cooker Tuscan Beef Stew

Reviewed: Nov. 20, 2013
I love this amazing stew! I brown all the chunks of meat before putting them in the slow cooker, gives another layer of flavor. I use great northern beans (mainly because at my store the cannelini beans cost 3 times as much) I also just use 1 can of beans and then add 2 medium red potatoes cubed. I serve this alongside a homemade loaf of crusty bread.

Scones

Reviewed: Nov. 20, 2013
Amazing, and so easy to make. I've never made or eaten scones before, so I didn't know what to expect. I followed the recipe, with the exception of using a bit less milk, kneaded it a few times and then patted it into a round, flat shape with my hands and then used my pastry cutter to cut it into 8 pieces. I used the convection cooking on my stove, so I baked at 380F for 18 minutes. Can't wait to try it with some savory variations! Thanks for the recipe!!

Cuban Ropa Vieja

Reviewed: Mar. 1, 2013
Love this! I let this cook as slow and long as possible to get the most tender meat. I use a roast instead of flank steak because at my small town store the flank steak (if they ever have it in) costs over twice as much. I add a couple more cloves of garlic because I like it. We serve with small flour tortillas, cilantro/lime rice and black beans with salsa and queso fresco. I'm getting ready to make this again right now!

Moroccan Chicken and Whole Grain Couscous

Reviewed: Apr. 7, 2011
My family loves this dish, I even get my picky eating children to eat all the veggies in here! I don't put nearly as much broth because I don't like things too soupy, but do use some of the extra broth to cook my couscous in. Also, the last 2 times I made this dish, I had a lot of fresh tomatoes on the vine and I quartered those and tossed them in instead of the can of crushed, and I think I prefer it that way to get some actual chunks of tomato. If I weren't feeding this to my 7 and 5 yr olds, i would add a bit more cayenne, but otherwise it's great as written! Thanks for giving my family a great new dish to add to our menu!

Baked Potato Soup

Reviewed: Jan. 26, 2011
This was great. I've never had baked potato soup before, so I didn't know what I was getting in to. I thought I was going to miss having some kind of meat, but as it turns out we didn't miss it at all! I used six small-medium sized potatoes and baked them in the oven in the morning and then made the soup at night. I didn't add the hot sauce, I don't like it. Also, right before serving, I took my potato masher and gave a few mashes around the pot to break some of the potatoes up, made the soup nice and thick. Also, I didn't have any parsley, but had green onion, so put that on top with the cheese and bacon. I served with a big hunk of warm crusty bread to scoop it up with! Almost hope summer never comes so I can warm up with this delicious soup again!!

Mary's Roasted Red Pepper Dip

Reviewed: Apr. 30, 2009
Wow, this tasty. I've always wanted to try a roasted red pepper dip and I'm glad I did. This is very easy to make. I roasted my own red peppers (2 of them), and also grilled a bit of onion before I chopped it up. I then chopped one of the peppers and pureed the other. I also used 1/2 mayo, 1/2 sour cream and used a box grater for my clove of garlic because I didn't want to accidentally have someone bite into a big chunk of garlic. Thanks for the recipe, it a nice to try something new!

Basil Chicken over Angel Hair

Reviewed: Jun. 25, 2008
Awesome! My hubby and I loved this recipe, the kids (5 and 2 1/2) not as much because they wanted more sauce on their pasta. I didn't have the fresh tomatoes, so I used a 14.5 ounce can of diced tomatoes, but the rest was all fresh. I also used 2 cloves of garlic and I didn't have the hot pepper sauce, so I sprinkled on a bit of red pepper flakes. Thanks for a great new addition to my meal plans!

Cream Cheese Frosting II

Reviewed: Mar. 28, 2008
My new favorite frosting! It wasn't too sweet and the thickness was just right. I also used this on Sam's Famous Carrot Cake from this site last weekend for Easter dinner. Yummy!!

Sam's Famous Carrot Cake

Reviewed: Mar. 28, 2008
I made this recipe last weekend for easter dinner...wow, what a fabulous cake! My uncle told me after dinner that he thought I should have enough time before supper to make another, it went over that well with my family. The only thing I did different was I skipped out on the coconut because I'm not a huge fan of it...I also added 1/4 tsp. of nutmeg. Frosted with cream cheese frosting II from this site...again, fabulous!

Chantal's New York Cheesecake

Reviewed: Sep. 20, 2007
I have used many different recipes for cheesecake, but after I found this one, I tossed the others. This is fantastic. My brother and sisters request this from me for their birthdays and I'm happy to do it. I bake at 325F in a water bath for 1 hour 5 minutes, and then I usually take out of oven right away and it's fine. The longer it chills, the better it tastes!

Mark's English Sausage Rolls

Reviewed: Sep. 20, 2007
Thanks for the recipe. My husband is from England and hasn't had a sausage roll for over 2 1/2 years. He was craving them the other weekend while listening to his soccer match. We found this recipe, and the rest is history. Hubby says they taste like the real thing. Thanks again!

Zuppa Toscana

Reviewed: Sep. 20, 2007
This was a very good soup...I used ground Italian sausage, but I think next time I'll keep it in the casing and then slice into the soup. I also used 6 baby red potaoes. I simmered (without the cream and kale) for a couple of hours and really got the flavors happy and the potaoes nice and soft. Then about 15 minutes before serving I added cream and kale. Thanks for the delicious recipe!

Grilled Rib Eye Steaks

Reviewed: Jul. 30, 2007
My husband and I really enjoyed this recipe. I couldn't bear to toss out the marinade with all those delicious onion and garlic pieces, so I put it on the stove and reduced it down for a great sauce to drizzle over the steak.

Beer Lime Grilled Chicken

Reviewed: Jul. 2, 2007
Not sure how I felt about this one...my husband really liked it, so I may have to give it another try. I marinated the chicken for about 6 hours, so there was flavor, just not sure I liked it though.

Cuban Style Marinated Steak

Reviewed: May 25, 2007
Absolutely love this recipe, the only thing I do differently is marinate for 6-8 hours and I also add about 1/2 tablespoon (or a bit more) of crushed red pepper flakes to add a bit of a kick. Then I thinly slice it and serve on toasted crusty rolls.

Salsa Rice

Reviewed: Mar. 13, 2007
Thanks for the recipe! It was so simple and easy to make. I did forget to put the cheese in though, so I don't know how much that changes things. My husband really enjoyed this as well and he is a VERY picky eater. I did put the kettle in the oven when it was finished cooking for a little while though because I thought the rice was a little too wet. Maybe I put in a bit too much liquid when I started though...will definitely be making this again, it's great for mexican night with beans, chiken enchiladas and of course margaritas!
