Brown Rice and Black Bean Casserole

Reviewed: Aug. 21, 2013
I omitted the chicken, doubled the rice, used cheddar cheese and added Southwest seasoning and also augmented the spicy factor with two sliced serrano peppers. YUM!!!

Slow Cooker Cassoulet

Reviewed: Mar. 24, 2013
I used andouille sausage and I browned all of the meat first. I also added a can of diced tomatoes to it. I think it needed that acidic bite to balance out the dish. I also added some bay leaves to it. It's delicious!

Slow Cooker Guisado Verde

Reviewed: Feb. 10, 2013
It's still cooking away in the slow cooker, but I snuck a taste and WOW! I used chicken breasts, fresh tomatillos and instead of jalapenos I used a habanero because I like it spicy. I also used chicken broth, but only used 2 pints instead of a quart because I don't want it too soupy.

Egg Fried Rice

Reviewed: Jul. 4, 2010
Very tasty. I used brown rice and cooked it in low sodium chicken broth and soy sauce. I let it cool in the fridge for a few hours and then sauteed onion, garlic, peas, green pepper and spam (all finely diced) and added two eggs to that. The original recipe was a great jumping off point.

Minty Orzo Lentil and Feta Salad

Reviewed: Jun. 6, 2010
Really tasty. I used french lentils (what I had on hand) and I used a mild feta cheese as opposed to a stronger feta. The milder feta cheese doesn't overpower the rest of the ingredients. I added lemon juice as others had suggested which brightened the flavor some. I think I used too much dill because it came out more dilly than minty. I guess I will adjust the amounts next time, even though I love dill, the mint didn't seem to come through. I will definitely make this again!

Slow Cooker Chicken Taco Soup

Reviewed: Mar. 15, 2010
If I ever make this again, which is highly doubtful, I will omit the beer. And even if I did omit the beer, the recipe is just not doing it for me.

Chorizo and Lentil Stew

Reviewed: Jan. 16, 2010
It was wonderful for a cold winter night. I used French lentils and Niman Ranch chorizo links. I did not use celery, but instead used an onion and 3 cloves of garlic. I also used a teaspoon of smoked Spanish paprika instead of curry. I could see pairing this with a nice green salad and some crusty bread.

Very good and economical. I added a can of diced tomatoes with green chilies and some garlic powder. It was like a casserole.

Scrambled Eggs with Leek and Sauce

Reviewed: Oct. 28, 2008
I liked it. It was cheap, filling and flavorful. It wouldn't be a stretch to add other veggies like sauteed spinach and mushrooms to it. I will definitely make this again.

Bourbon Whiskey BBQ Sauce

Reviewed: Oct. 8, 2007
I've put this on Sarge's EZ pulled pork (from this site) and baked chicken legs. I used Maker's Mark and a full teaspoon of Yucateco habanero sauce. I also cut the brown sugar down to 1/4 cup. Next time I will use a less expensive, but still tasty bourbon (Old Crow?) I think, if you like the taste of the bourbon as a drink, you will like the taste of the sauce.

Habanero Pepper Cream Pasta

Reviewed: Sep. 24, 2007
This was really good and spicy. I cut out a lot of fat by using 2 ounces of neufchatel cream cheese instead of heavy cream. Also, I used a can of diced tomatoes with jalepenos and 1 fresh habanero pepper from my garden. Next time I will add chicken to it.

Kathy's Baked Stuffed Tomatoes

Reviewed: Apr. 5, 2007
This was really easy and tasty. I changed it up a bit by first blanching the arugula and squeezing the excess liquid out of it before throwing it in the processor and I omitted the feta and added a few extra tablespoons of parmesan.
