Dee's Roast Pork for Tacos

Reviewed: Jun. 26, 2007
I also threw this in the slow cooker (since its a perfect way to make succulent meats).I didn't add any liquid and there was just the right amount of juice to add back into to the pork once I shredded it. I used a 3 lb. roast so only used 1 can of green chilies. I only had a couple of tbsp of chili powder and no taco seasoning so I improvised by throwing in a bunch of stuff I had on hand: the chili powder, cumin,paprika,seasoning salt,chipotle powder,oregano and even a pinch of cloves and of course plenty of minced garlic. Sorry, I don't know the exact amounts, I rarely measure anything - just add what I think is right, but it was a lot of spice if that's any help.(probably equivilent to a package & a half of taco seasoning though.) I also added a minced onion. Since I got late starting it I cooked it on high for about 5 hrs. I combined this recipe with another on this site (Mexican Style Shredded Pork) and served it on top of rice and black beans (with lime juice and cilantro stirred in after it was cooked). It turned out GREAT...just the right amount of spiciness with a lot of flavor. Will definitely be making this many, many times! It was so easy AND inexpensive. Thanks for sharing.

Hot Chicken Liver and Fennel Salad

Reviewed: Jun. 1, 2007
I liked this dish as did my two boys (I had my doubts about them but made it anyway). I too was looking for something different to do with fennel and thought this looked good...and talk about healthy! Liver and spinach in one dish! I didn't have capers but substituted with green olive tapenade that was on hand. I also didn't use as much oil but otherwise stuck to the recipe as written. It was quick and easy to make and definitely will make it again.

Halibut Steaks

Reviewed: Jun. 1, 2007
This makes a real nice summer dish. I love how versatile it is...you can really use just about any fish and any combination of vegetables. I was looking for a way to serve up some frozen boxed haddock fillets and used this recipe. I didn't have mushrooms or zucchini but did have yellow and orange bell pepper and asparagus. So with the red tomato, it made a beautiful looking dish. I also had some fresh basil and lemon thyme growing so used that instead of the dried basil. With a side of rice (cooked in chicken stock and some chopped green onions stirred in afterward) it made a complete meal. The only down-side was that I didn't make enough! Everyone liked it and it went fast.

B.L.A.T. Wraps

Reviewed: May 14, 2006
I did alter this recipe just a little. Instead of tortillas I used pita (warmed in the microwave 15 sec for easy wrapping and pliability), instead of shredded lettuce I used 1 large lettuce leaf to line the pita so it wouldn't get soggy, and instead of ranch dressing I used my homemade taziki sauce. We absolutely LOVED these! I never would've thought of putting avocados in your basic BLT. Thanks for the inspiation, Christina!

Mexican Rice III

Reviewed: Feb. 5, 2006
I was looking for something quick and easy to go with Gerry's Chicken Enchiladas (from this site). This recipe did the trick. I didn't use the jalpeno but know it would've been a nice addition if I'd had one. I stirred in the cilantro just before serving and squeezed a fresh lime over all at the end. I found it gave it that little extra zing.

Gerry's Chicken Enchiladas

Reviewed: Feb. 5, 2006
Well, as other people have said, it was very time consuming but worth it in the end. Everyone loved these. I think next time I'll use a stewing hen or chicken legs to cut down on the cost. I made the 10 minute enchilada sauce found on this site. It went with it quite well I thought. For some reason I got double the amount of enchilads even though I followed the recipe, which was great since everyone got their fill. I will definitely make these again.

Ten Minute Enchilada Sauce

Reviewed: Feb. 5, 2006
This was good, I especially liked the fact that the ingredients called for were things I already had in my cupboard. I used this sauce for Gerry's Chicken Enchiladas found on this site.

Honey Lime Chicken Wings

Reviewed: Jan. 20, 2006
I really liked these wings. The lime gave them a nice tangyness and the honey kept them from being too sour. What a great combination. A nice change from the usual. Thanks!!!

Spicy Mango Salsa

Reviewed: Jan. 20, 2006
ooooh, so good!!! Like others i used canned peaches because of the time of year. I also used cilantro instead of the basil and jalepano pepper rather than the serrano. I served it as an accompaniment to the Cuban Pork Roast and Dirty Rice - recipes both found on this site. My kids raved about dinner that night and couldn't stop from going back for more! Will be making this again - thanks for sharing!

Dirty Rice

Reviewed: Jan. 20, 2006
Oh my gosh, this was so good! The only changes I made was to use cubanelle peppers instead of green (too expensive this time of year), red kidney beans instead of black, and 1 tsp of ground chipotle chili pepper instead of the 2 tsp of annatto - it's what I had on hand. I served it as a side dish to the Cuban Pork Roast and Spicy Mango Salsa recipes also found on this site. Will definitely make again. Thank you, Jen!

Cuban Pork Roast I

Reviewed: Jan. 20, 2006
This is a great recipe. The only change I made was to use white wine rather than sherry (didn't have it). I served it with Spicy Mango Salsa and Dirty Rice (both found on this site). The whole family raved about it and even went back for more. This is something I would definitely make for company, everything was easy but the results were impressive!
