Pico De Gallo

Reviewed: Aug. 17, 2013
This is a pretty good basic recipe. I would add some bell pepper and leave out the green onions. Also for those of you who think it's too watery, I always chop my ingredients, especially the tomatoes, into a collender to drain off the excess liquid. Fresh lime juice is definitely a must. Also fresh garlic. A dash of olive oil also adds a little more flavor.

Coconut Cream Cake I

Reviewed: Jul. 7, 2013
I never make a cake with a cake mix but this sounded really good so I tried it. I have only given this cake three stars because it is made with a box cake. This cake was okay but I think using a white or coconut cake recipe from scratch would make it a 5+ star cake. I will try it and see.

Kickin' Collard Greens

Reviewed: Apr. 6, 2013
I love collard greens and so does my husband. However, this recipe lacked something in the taste. It was too bland. I did omit the olive oil and used the bacon grease and I did add some vinegar in hopes it would give it more taste and added more garlic and red pepper flakes but it still lacked something. If I make this recipe again I will try adding more bacon and some brown sugar as one person suggested but I don't know if I will make it again.

Diane's Colcannon

Reviewed: Mar. 18, 2013
I make this exact recipe for St. Patrick's Day dinner every year. I first found it in an Irish cookbook I bought. I have read other versions but this one is the best as far as I'm concerned and I will continue to use it. The melted butter in the middle just seems to add something extra.

Buddy's and Bubba's Homemade Dog Food

Reviewed: Mar. 14, 2013
My dog loves this food. She is 14 years old and has a lot of skin problems. I have tried a lot of different remedies for her problem and this recipe has done more for her condition than anything else. I also treat her affected areas with coconut oil and that also has helped a lot. I found that using a pressure cooker to make this recipe cuts down on cooking time considerably. I will continue to give this food to my dog and will probably try some of the alternative suggestions I read in other people's reviews to change it up a little from time to time. Also I am kind of confused about the garlic issue. I have been giving her a pill that is brewer's yeast and garlic that is supposed to be for healthier skin and now I am wondering if I am doing something wrong.

Vegetarian Kale Soup

Reviewed: Feb. 1, 2013
A friend of mine gave me a bunch of kale out of his garden. I did not know what to do with kale so I went to the internet looking for ideas. I found this recipe. I decided to try it. I did make a couple of changes. Since we are not vegetarians I added some meat from a few beef ribs that I pressure cooked. Instead of cannellini beans I used pinto beans because that was all I had. I added one large carrot cut into bite size pieces. I used six cups of chicken broth and two cups of broth from the ribs I pressured. I cut back on the Italian seasoning. It turned out wonderful. My husband liked it before I was even finished putting it together and the next day it was really delicious. I defintely will be making this recipe again. Next time I might try a different green like collards or turnip greens just to see if it will be as good with other kinds of greens.
