Cha Cha's White Chicken Chili

Reviewed: Nov. 1, 2014
Loved this recipe!! I used fresh chilies. Leftovers froze very well and tasted just as good as the day I made it.

Slow Cooker Teriyaki Pork Tenderloin

Reviewed: Jan. 6, 2014
Great recipe! My pork was 2.75 pounds, so I made 1.5 times the sauce. It was just right. I did simmer the sauce after cooking in he slow cooker to thicken it a bit. I served it with broccoli florets. The flavor was excellent! I froze some left overs and it tasted just as good when I thawed it out.

Acorn Squash

Reviewed: Nov. 25, 2013
I've been trying new vegetables lately and was hoping to like this more. I think I just don't care for acorn squash.

Cranberry Sauce with Jalapeno Peppers

Reviewed: Nov. 25, 2013
This was really good! The jalapeno really added a lot to the recipe. I'm going to have to add jalapens whenever I make cranberry sauce from now on!

Chipotle Crusted Pork Tenderloin

Reviewed: Nov. 28, 2012
I was looking for something to do with my pork tenderloin and this looked good. The package of pork I had was about double what the recipe called for, so I doubled all the ingredients except the chipolte. I also baked it rather than grilled it. It was very good and extremely tender. It also froze well, which is a big plus for me. When I thawed it out for lunch today, it was just as tender and jucy as when I first made it.

Artichoke Chicken

Reviewed: Jul. 4, 2012
Loved this recipe! I made the following changes: I cut the chicken in strips, used 1/2 mayo and 1/2 sour cream, both low fat, used marinated artichokes and added fresh mushrooms. I put the chicken in a baking dish, put sliced mushrooms over the top and spread the artichoke sauce over the muchrooms and baked it for 30 min The only reason I gave it 4 stars instead of 5 is that the chicken was slightly dry.

Grilled Chicken Mojito Sandwich

Reviewed: Jun. 9, 2012
Good and easy. I added extra serranos and used my George Foreman grill for the chicken and onions.

Sweet Chops

Reviewed: Dec. 5, 2011
Very tasty and easy. I used apple cider instead of water, at another poster's suggestion. I think that added flavor. I did have to add quite a bit because it kept cooking down and I wanted to keep liquid in the pan. Next time, I may up the amount of the garlic, soy sauce and Worcestershire sauce to kick up the flavor at bit.

Vegan Chocolate Cake

Reviewed: Dec. 1, 2011
I needed to make a cake for a small gathering, but I wanted to use ingredients I already had. Plus, I didn't want a large cake because I didn't want leftovers. This was the PERFECT cake for what I was looking for. The ingredients are staples, it's simple to make and I baked it in an 8x8 pan. I added chocolate chips, but you really don't need to. The cake (which I made the night before I served it) was very moist. I frosted it with 1/2 frosting recipe from the Hershey's Cocoa box. Everyone loved it! No leftovers at all. I'll make this anytime I need a small cake.

Sloppy Joes II

Reviewed: Nov. 10, 2011
Loved this recipe! I think I added more onion and pepper than this recipe calls for, but I kept all the other measurements as it states. Next time I will make a double recipe and freeze some.

Chili Chicken Pasta Topper

Reviewed: Mar. 5, 2011
I thought this was very good, but I did make some changes (mostly due to what I had on hand). 1. when cooking the chicken, I added some chopped onion 2. I used regular Cream of Mushroom soup and added some dry basil and parsley for the herbs 3. for the pasta, I used Wacky Mac 4. I served more Parmesan cheese at the table...yum The reason I didn't give it 5 stars is that next time I want to tweak is some more. I think it would be good to either marinate the chicken or rub garlic powder on it. It was really good, though, and was great left over.

Green Chile Chicken Stew

Reviewed: Jan. 21, 2011
I thought this was really good! I did do things slightly different. I used turkey instead of chicken. I made a turkey dinner over new year's weekend and instead of picking the leftover turkey off the bones once we were done eating on it, I just put the whole thing in the freezer. To make this stew, I pulled the leftover turkey out and made the broth with that. I followed the recipe for the rest, except the store only had 1 habanero the day I went shopping, so I used 1 habanero, 1 very mild jalapeno and 3 medium hot serranos (slim pickins at the grocery store that day!). My stew turned out thick and stew-like and very yummy. The only problem is, it made sooooo much. I think next time, once I have made the broth, I will freeze 1/2 of it and then halve the rest of the recipe. I'm afraid to freeze it once I've added the potatoes...I've never had luck freezing dishes with potatoes in them. I also think next time I could add more tomatoes and green chilies.

Spinach Cheese Ball

Reviewed: Jan. 4, 2011
I made this for a small Christmas gathering. It was good, but not great. The other adults seemed to like it ok, but didn't think it was anything special. I made it the day before so the flavors would have time to mix and mingle.

Sugar Cookie Frosting

Reviewed: Dec. 24, 2010
Very good frosting. I made "The Best Rolled Sugar Cookies" from this site and frosted them with this frosting. This frosting tinted easily and was easy to work with.

The Best Rolled Sugar Cookies

Reviewed: Dec. 24, 2010
These cookies are excellent! I made 2 batches for a large Thanksgiving gathering. The 1st batch I rolled a little thick, so the second batch I rolled thin. I think I liked the thin cookies best. I frosted them with "Sugar Cookie Frosting" from this website. I enjoyed them both with and without the frosting. They were a big hit at the Thanksgiving gathering, too.
