Slow Cooker Chicken Taco Soup

Reviewed: Dec. 12, 2013
I took someone's suggestion and did this on the stovetop. I browned the chicken, then the onions, then added everything else, including about 45 oz of chicken stock (left off the beer). I didn't have 2 cans of tomatoes so substituted a jar of salsa for one of the cans and used homemade taco seasoning. I simmered it about 1 1/2 hours, then shredded the chicken, added it back to the pot and served. The chicken stayed tender this way. I was able to keep it from overcooking. This soup as written has been one of my favorites and a freezer staple every winter. I'm giving it 5 stars because I already loved it, but the stovetop method is my new favorite.

Broccoli Cheese Soup

Reviewed: Oct. 19, 2013
Oh my gosh this was so good. I followed suggestions and doubled the cheese and broccoli, using fresh broccoli. I used 1 lb of processed cheese food and 1 lb of shredded cheddar jack, and substituted half and half for the milk. We love soups and this has become our new favorite. Thank you Karen.

Apricot-Glazed Pork Chops

Reviewed: Oct. 15, 2012
Delicious, easy, and fast. Used pomegranate juice rather than wine. We loved the sauce.

Baked Potato Soup III

Reviewed: Sep. 21, 2012
This was delicious. I substituted 2 cups chicken stock for some of the milk, but it was still rich enough. For those who want to add spices, this tastes like a loaded baked potato. You don't want to add any spices that you wouldn't put on a baked potato. Delicious, but rich.

Million Dollar Fudge

Reviewed: Dec. 11, 2011
If your fudge is grainy it means there was at least one sugar crystal in the mix that did not dissolve. It starts a chain reaction and turns other sugars back to crystals. To keep that from happening cook your liquid slowly and spoon the hot liquid on the sides of the pan while its cooking until you are sure all sugar crystals clinging to the side of the pan have been washed down into the liquid where they will dissolve.
