Slow Cooker Chicken Taco Soup

Reviewed: Apr. 7, 2014
This soup was super easy to make and SO good!! I substituted a can of chicken stock for the beer; added a generous amount of cumin; a few dashes of Penzey's Chili Con Carne; and 2 garlic gloves. It had the perfect amount of spice. My fiancee normally adds Tabasco to soups but did not this time - yet it was not too spicy. The chicken shredded perfectly after about 4 hours in the crockpot. We topped it with sour cream, shredded cheddar cheese, and crushed tortilla strips. Cornbread on the side. Definitely a 5-star recipe!!

Hot and Sour Chicken Soup

Reviewed: Jan. 30, 2014
This was my first time making hot and sour soup - it turned out fantastic!! I did not use ginger b/c we do not like that flavor...and did not use cilantro. I used about twice as much sesame oil to coat the chicken - and next time will marinade the chicken overnight to set in the flavor a bit more. I took the advice of other reviews and used rice vinegar with the corn starch instead of red wine vinegar - but used twice as much cornstarch to get that nice thick consistency like you get from the restaurant hot & sour soup. My husband LOVED it. I will definitely make this again!!

Slow Cooker Chicken and Dumplings

Reviewed: Sep. 23, 2013
This was absolutely delicious!! I integrated recommendations from a few other reviews and used 2 cans of cream of chicken soup and 1 can (14.5 oz) of chicken broth. No water. I put the dough into the crockpot about 60 minutes prior to serving (after 5 hours). I agree that to not cut up the chicken but let it simmer in the broth all day in whole pieces - it was SO tender and fell apart on its own. Since the biscuit dough is so sticky, I put some flour on a large piece of wax paper and covered the pieces in flour while I slightly flattened them before cutting in to 4 pieces. The flour also thickened up the broth a little, which was perfect. THANK YOU - I am definitely going to make this regularly over the winter - perfect cold Sunday comfort food. :):)

Country Apple Dumplings

Reviewed: Feb. 5, 2013
I followed the recipe to a tee and they turned out wonderful!! The only modification I will make next time is to slice the apples a little thinner to have two smaller slices per dumpling. My parents just loved them and were surprised about the Mountain Dew! They were golden, sweet, and delicious! I will definitely make them again!!

Chicken Marsala

Reviewed: Jan. 24, 2013
This recipe is easy to make and absolutely yummy! Definitely worth it to spend a few extra dollars on good marsala wine and cooking sherry. I sauteed onion and garlic before browning the chicken and added cornstarch to the sauce to thicken it. Very important to flatten the chicken...it will not work otherwise (maybe that's obvious but felt the need to say that :)). Such good flavor. I served with garlic mashed potatoes and green beans. My friends loved it, as did I!

Louisiana Shrimp Creole II

Reviewed: Jan. 24, 2013
This recipe is super easy and SO yummy! I use tiger shrimp - in my opinion the high quality shrimp is necessary to make it fabulous. :) We love spicy and put in a few more dashes of hot sauce and it's perfect! We serve over rice.

MMMMM... Brownies

Reviewed: Aug. 1, 2011
The best brownies I have ever had!! So easy to make - the only modifications I had were to use 1/4 cup brown sugar and 1/4 cup white sugar (instead of 1/2 cup white) and just a tad less salt. They turned out WONDERFUL and everyone I have shared them with thinks they are yummy! I will never buy a box again!

Champagne Punch III

Reviewed: Jul. 28, 2011
This is a wonderful recipe!! I used lime slices instead of lemon and did not add the mint leaves. I used Sprite ice cubes instead of the ice ring. My friends all LOVED it and the 7 of us had no problem finishing it off - they all asked for the recipe!
