Sausage and Bean Ragout

Reviewed: May 22, 2009
Very, very tasty!! Unfortunately I forgot to add the pasta due to one to many glasses of wine. We loved it and thought the pasta would have been great in it. I will make this again. Thanks for the recipe.

Garlic Chicken with Orzo Noodles

Reviewed: May 21, 2009
This was fast and simple to make with things I have in my pantry. I followed the recipe exactly with the only exception being that I cooked the orzo in chicken stock instead of water. I thought it was a decent economical meal. It was a tad on the spicy side which I was surprised about. If you don't have a spicy pallet I would cut the red pepper down to 1/8 t or your might find it very spicy. I would probably give this 3.5 stars if they let me. Thanks for sharing.

Spicy Oven Fried Chicken

Reviewed: May 19, 2009
I'm on the fence about this one. I made exactly as stated just used bone in chicken instead. I was thinking I could skip the browning in the pan step, but wanted to make it the first time as written. I think next time I will skip that step and throw it in the oven. I did have some problems with the breading, but I think it was all the handling of the chicken from frying pan to the oven pan. I did not find it to spicy- just a hint. I used tabasco in the buttermilk mixture. You could taste it, but not the heat of it. My kids ate it no problem. I would probably give this 3.5 stars. Thanks for sharing.

Tacos De Matamoros

Reviewed: May 14, 2009
I thought this was a decent way to make taco meat. Someone else on this site talked about cooking your ground beef in water for some other recipes. I will probably make this again. Thanks for sharing.

Slow Cooker Latin Chicken

Reviewed: May 7, 2009
So here is the thing. This has some major possibilities. I followed the directions to a t except I didn't have any red bell pepper. I think you can skip the browning the chicken part- the skin gets yucky (slimy) when you put it in the slow cooker. I thought it could have used A LOT more spice. I did dig the combo of black beans, and yams (there were no sweet potatoes at the market the produce guy said only in the fall) I served it over rice. This made a big quantity of food. I will probably make it again, but with some changes. Thanks for sharing.

Easy Slow Cooker Chicken Wings

Reviewed: Apr. 30, 2009
This was ok in a pinch. I like the wings better baked. The sauce does get watery and does not stay on the wings. I tried to thicken it up with corn starch. I also put the wings under the brioler to dry them up a bit. Thanks for sharing.

Mom's Brussels Sprouts

Reviewed: Apr. 27, 2009
I love brussels sprouts. What I didn't like about this recipe was the allspice and the nutmeg. I think I would have enjoyed it more with the butter and brown sugar only with some salt. Thanks for sharing.

Uncle White's Bread Machine Rolls

Reviewed: Apr. 26, 2009
These were ok for us. They were very dense and I didn't get a good rise from them. My buttermilk was not heated or at room temp which I thought might have affected that. These still don't beat the taste of my personal favorite from this site. Thanks for sharing.

Baked Spiced Chicken

Reviewed: Apr. 26, 2009
This was tasty and different. Next time I will half the amounts because it made a lot of spice mixture. Sweet and savory and made a very moist chicken. Thanks for sharing.

Sweet and Spicy Tuna Salad

Reviewed: Apr. 24, 2009
Yes, yes, yes! Finally a tuna salad that is simple, but complex and worth a second try for sure. Heres the thing the author says: "you can adjust ingredient amounts for a personalized taste." I did just that. Knowing that 1/2 C of relish would be way to much and 1/8t of Sriracha would be way to little. I went with 1 tablespoon of both. Sweet and savory and surprising good! Thanks for sharing I will make this again.

Elegant Orzo with Wilted Spinach and Pine Nuts

Reviewed: Apr. 21, 2009
My husband and I liked this better than the 2 kids. The one kid like it without the balsamic. Nice, easy and tasty. Thanks for sharing.

New Wife Tuna Salad

Reviewed: Apr. 20, 2009
I wish we could give 1/2 stars here- I probably would give this a 3.5. This is good a little different than how I usually make my tuna. I didn't have dill relish just sweet, although, I actually prefer dill. If I made again I would omit the celery seed. I always find it to be bitter and with the real thing in it I didn't think it needed it. I liked the idea of the hard boiled eggs. Thanks for sharing.

The Best Bean and Ham Soup

Reviewed: Apr. 20, 2009
Very good bean soup. Not like traditional bean soup, but good non the less. I made the recipe exactly as written with the changes the submitter made in her review. I just stuck the ham bone in the pot and didn't add any extra ham and it was fine- loads of meat actually. I did have to add a lot of chicken stock to keep it thinned out (2 32oz boxes) during the cooking. I didn't find it needed any extra seasoning after the bone came out. The ham I used was a Kirland spiral cut with out the glaze. This made a lot of soup and we will eat it again this week on a busy night. Thanks for sharing- this will be my go to recipe from now on.

Granola Energy Bars

Reviewed: Apr. 18, 2009
The jury is still out on this one. They have a nice flavor to them. The only thing I'm not sure about is the chocolate. I thought these would be the perfect snack for my husband when he hikes and bikes, but I think the chocolate topping might make them hard to manage. I followed the recipe exactly the only thing I did different is not melt the chocolate chips I just sprinkled them on top of the bars and stuck them back in the oven for a minute then spread them. One less thing to clean. Thanks for sharing.

Afghan Tomato Soup (Aush Goshti)

Reviewed: Apr. 11, 2009
I have been wanting to make this recipe for some time. I followed it to a t except I only had dried dill. I think it needed way more salt. I also think the chili paste was lost in the dish. I would probably go with 1 or more tablespoons depending on the heat you like. The only other thing I would have done was to break up the noodles. It ended up more like fettuccine with meat sauce then a soup. Overall very good and worth making for sure. Thanks for sharing.

Mimi's Slumgullion

As written this is super salty. I would not put any extra salt in. I would make again with that adjustment. Thanks for sharing.
