Authentic Cochinita Pibil (Spicy Mexican Pulled Pork)

Reviewed: Apr. 19, 2010
Lo Mejor! I'm going to have to stock up on achiote paste, because this made a fantastico slow-cooker meal. We sprinkled with a little cotija cheese and served with tortillas. Too easy and too good to not be tried.

Calabacitas con Elote (Zucchini with Corn)

Reviewed: Mar. 31, 2010
Straight-up fantastico! Didn't take nearly 50 minutes, but I chop fast. Didn't have fresh corn, but look forward to the first crop. Served on the side of a slow cooker Cochinita Pibil with some tortillas. Will be eating a lot of this over the summer. Thanks!

Baked Delicata Squash with Lime Butter

Reviewed: Mar. 12, 2010
Hard to beat the combination of simplicity and flavor in this recipe. I used 50% more squash, 100% more lime juice and got pretty good results. I also used Jamaican jerk-seasoning rather than chili powder. You can take this in a dozen directions and not screw it up.

Kale Soup

Reviewed: Jan. 7, 2010
Sensacional! There must be some old-world mysticism at work here. The whole is far greater than the sum of all the parts. Fifteen minutes into cooking, my kitchen smelled of magic and wonder. The anticipation only made the actual ingestion that much sweeter. Well done Scotty and thank you. I owe your family members a few bottles of Vinho Verde! Obrigado!

Chili - The Heat is On!

Reviewed: Nov. 24, 2009
sure the heat is on, but the thermostat is definitely set at a reasonable level and everyone is plenty comfortable. we used the last portion of the chili in a baked spaghetti dish that was just plain dirty in a XXX way, especially after shredding about six ounces of Tillamoook extra sharp cheddar cheese over it before it went in the oven. yeah, you heard me. don't EVEN pretend you aren't fantasizing about going home and doing the same, either. I know you want to!

Pumpkin Curry with Lentils and Apples

Reviewed: Nov. 4, 2009
This is delicious and filling and perfect for the turn in the weather! I failed to recognize I was out of carrots so those were missing and I decided to use a Kabocha because it was right there in the produce area looking good. Otherwise, I fudged some of the proportions due to making a larger batch and simple preferences, but kept it pretty close. Very tasty dish will be repeated with great joy and frequency!

Pat's Baked Beans

Reviewed: Jun. 24, 2009
Scaled this to 80 servings for a work function. Definitely the best baked beans I've had. Really enjoyed them. Admittedly, we made the decision to not drain off the excess bacon fat because, honestly now, is there a such thing as excess when it comes to bacon fat? Pat, you're a bacon and bean hero!

Curried Cashew, Pear, and Grape Salad

Reviewed: May 11, 2009
I like this pretty much, but think I want to mess with the proportions a little. I didn't feel like I was getting all the individual flavors. Still, it's a nice salad.

Spicy Vegan Potato Curry

Reviewed: Mar. 16, 2009
I feel like the seasoning in this recipe is a little unbalanced, but I can't stop eating it. I'd like to tinker with it a little, but for now, it's a great recipe as it is.

Chicken Tagine

Reviewed: Jan. 28, 2009
Of all the slow cookers, in all the towns, in all the world, this recipe was made in mine. I'm not sure how Moroccan this recipe really is (at least enough to rip off a Casablanca quote, apparently), but it's hardly worth researching once you taste it. I did fail to have on hand lemon juice, having used the last of it in some hummus a few days ago, so that part is missing. I'm guessing it would have helped to further balance the sweetness, which should have been easily predicted seeing the ingredient list. That being said, I personally like a little spice in these sorts of dishes, so I may just add some form of chile pepper, whether it be fresh or dried in my next preparation of this dish, which I believe will be much sooner than much later. Regardless of it's very few shortcomings, I think this is the beginning of a beautiful friendship (couldn't help it).

Eggplant, Zucchini and Sweet Red Pepper Stew

Reviewed: Jan. 22, 2009
I added chicken and used dried basil in place of fresh (used 4 teaspoons). Overall, I think this is a sincerely solid dish. I'm glad I added chicken as it tasted great and added some texture to a dish that is otherwise very mushy. I did cut the zucchini in larger chunks, which helped, but I will add the eggplant to the pan a little later in the process next time. Thanks for the great recipe!

Oranged Cranberry Sauce

Reviewed: Nov. 29, 2008
I've used this recipe two years running now and don't see an end to it. I love the resulting sauce. It's tart, sweet, tangy, beautiful, etc., etc. Day after sandwiches with crusty rolls, cream cheese, this sauce and, of course, turkey were simply delightful and made me want to roast another turkey so I can have more sandwiches all week! Thank you for one of my favorite holiday recipes!

Sweet Potato and Apple Soup

Reviewed: Nov. 29, 2008
This recipe is pretty decent, but the end result, for me, lacked balance. I agree that there is simply too much acid from the lemon juice. It's too disproportionately high to the rest of the recipe. I'd also have liked a bit more apple flavor as well. Overall, the soup was well received by everyone, myself included, but I'm definitely going to monkey with it to make it mine. Oh, I also used goat milk instead of cream, which worked nicely.

Orange Turkey Brine

Reviewed: Nov. 29, 2008
My turkey came out nice and moist. I'm almost entirely happy with this recipe. The only thing I don't like is that it gets heated and needs to be cooled. To cool this safely within proper time and temperature constraints takes too much time, attention, ice, and patience than I really had on Wednesday. I wonder whether this wouldn't be equally effective without the heating step. If you're happy to do that extra work, I'd say you'll be happy with this recipe, just as I was. Next time, however, I'm going to seek out another recipe for brining.

Pumpkin Mochi

Reviewed: Nov. 24, 2008
Call it Mochi. Call it cake. Call it whatever you want, just as long as you save me a big ol' hunk of it. I just made this on a whim to see if it might be something to have on Thursday and couldn't be more pleased with how it turned out. Delicious!
