Simple Carnitas

Reviewed: Jun. 19, 2009
Excellent! I also put everything in the crockpot; no time! When I got home the house smelled wonderful, and it was delicious! The best part; very healthy, guilt free! Thanks Ken.

Dutch Potatoes

Reviewed: Sep. 23, 2009
We enjoyed these last night for the first time, and I would recommend them to anyone who loves mashed potatoes, and enjoys trying new flavor combinations. Thanks Perlene. The recipe stands well alone, but I added a good bit or oregano and dill, as the meat we were eating with it was seasoned in this manner. I would also recommend cooking the carrots separately; as they take longer to cook than the potatoes. I had to process them a bit before adding in. Overall, very good recipe.

Buffy's Refried Beans

Reviewed: Sep. 29, 2009
These are the best homemade refried beans ever! I happened to be cooking bacon for another use, so I used half butter, half bacon grease (no lard on hand). And, I used the liquid from the beans instead of water. Very few dishes in my kitchen escape without garlic, so a good heaping Tbsp. of minced garlic and a small can of diced green chiles sauteed in the bacon grease before adding the beans worked perfectly. And, I topped the beans with grated Pepper Jack cheese. Mmmm.... My family is still shocked that they are getting real refried beans, not out of a can, at home! We even like these better than our favorite Mexican restaurant's. Thank you Buffy.

Double Peanut Butter Cookies I (Eggless!)

Reviewed: Oct. 9, 2009
Wonderful, melt-in-your-mouth cookies. Subbed chocolate syrup drops in place of chocolate chips (sadly, had none).

Bruce's Northwest 7-Alarm Chili

Reviewed: Nov. 8, 2009
This is by far the best chili we have ever made, and it gets better each day it sits in the fridge! (Although, it's never lasted longer than 3 days in our household.) Nothing better for those cold, rainy, windy days of fall in the northwest!

Super-Delicious Zuppa Toscana

Reviewed: Nov. 9, 2009
We loved this soup! Thank you for a wonderful recipe; simple and yet delicious. I did not have heavy cream, but sour cream worked perfectly. And while there was no cheese in the recipe, we couldn't resist the addition of some shredded pepper jack and cheddar. Will be making this soup again for sure!

Slow Cooker Casserole

Reviewed: Nov. 11, 2009
Very good! Great easy recipe for rushed days, simple and down home comfort food. I used spaghetti noodles instead of Ramen (all I had) and seasoned with Johnny's Salt, garlic powder and ground pepper. Also topped with crushed leftover Tim's Cascade Jalapeno Chips before putting in oven. Will make this agian, thanks for the recipe Sue.

Roasted Garlic Sweet Potatoes

Reviewed: Jan. 27, 2010
Superb! These potatoes were absolutely wonderful, and met my expectations. We enjoyed the combination of the sweetness of the potatoes, and the strong garlic flavor, complimented by the heat and spice of the seasonings. I wasn't sure about trying to peel the potatoes after baking, so I peeled them first, and wrapped each one in foil. This recipe is a definite keeper! Thank you Kelly for introducing me to some unique ideas I never would have thought of!

Pork Chops with Blue Cheese Gravy

Reviewed: Jan. 27, 2010
Wonderful recipe! Topped the chops with sauteed mushrooms/garlic, served the Blue Cheese Gravy on the side (daughters not crazy about bleu cheese). I didn't have whipping cream on hand, so I subbed sour cream and a little milk - the gravy was smooth and delicious. Served with Garlic Mashed Sweet Potatoes from this site, and sauteed brussels sprouts. What a terrific flavor combo. Thank you Toni for a great recipe; it's a keeper for sure!

Kielbasa Potato Skillet

Reviewed: Jan. 27, 2010
This is one of our family's favorite week-night dishes. We like it hot, so we add red pepper flakes while the potatoes are sauteing. Sometimes I will add green chiles as well. Very adaptable to personal seasoning preferences.

Rich and Simple French Onion Soup

Reviewed: Feb. 23, 2011
Wonderful recipe. Many others did not call for Provolone (we are not Swiss fans), and I only had Sherry on hand (rather than red wine) so I chose this recipe over all the others. Despite the finicky eaters at the table who do not like their bread 'soppy' everyone enjoyed the soup. Other recipes asked for sugar to be added to the onions, which I did out of curiosity. I will not add the sugar in the future. After carmelizing the onions, there is plenty of sugar. The only other thing I did differently is to use my own beef stock from a Crock-potted roast. I believe homemade stock is always better than consomme or boullion cubes. Thank you Lori for a great recipe!

Salsa Chicken

Reviewed: Dec. 2, 2009
This was an awesome way to change up our usual 'Mexican themed' dinner. Paired with Mexican Rice II and Buffy's Refried Beans from this site, some tortillas and sour cream on the side, it made for a wonderful meal. Thank you Faye, for a great recipe.

Pepperoncini Beef

Reviewed: Jul. 1, 2009
How could this NOT be worth 5 stars?!! Delicious. I used sliced pepperoncinis, and slightly more garlic (about 4 heaping Tbsp. of minced from the jar), plenty of Oregano and freshly grond black pepper. My roast was 5 lbs., I wish I would have trimmed the fat off, but was in a hurry to get to work. Put them under the broiler with Pepper Jack (cheddar for DH) and served with creamy horseradish sauce! Tonight I will skim off the fat and make Au Jus for dipping. Next time, I will add sliced onions to the crock pot. Thank you Joyce, for a wonderful recipe - def. a keeper!

Reviewed: Oct. 9, 2009
Wonderful! Melt-in-your-mouth cookies. Found these searching for eggless because I was out, and so very glad I did! I was also out of chocolate chips, so had to sub chocolate syrup drops in their place. Otherwise, followed recipe exactly and they were to die for! Thank you Robin.
