6 Can Chicken Tortilla Soup

Reviewed: Aug. 27, 2013
This soup is probably not meant to be the healthiest, best, "good-for-you" soup; it's meant to be quick, easy, filling, and tasty, and it definitely fulfills that in a big way. The good thing is that you can easily make changes that will up the "healthy" factor: use left-over cooked chicken, add frozen whole kernel corn instead of canned (both of which I may do next time), make your own cream of soup, and on and on. But for a cook who's been at work all day and needs a fast, one-dish meal for a hungry family, this is it!

White Cheese Chicken Lasagna

Reviewed: Aug. 26, 2013
Really, really good. A great way to use up left-over chicken from a whole rotisserie chicken. Husband loved it and said it deserved 5 stars!

Citrus Carrot Salad

Reviewed: Aug. 22, 2013
I love carrot salads that don't use mayonnaise. This salad is so fresh tasting. I thought the marshmallows would do nothing, but they were just enough to add a little sweetness to the salad, along with the little bit of sugar. Definitely a carrot salad I will make again.

Roasted Cauliflower

Reviewed: Aug. 21, 2013
I like this dish. I've never used cumin, lemon zest, and dill together. I liked the depth of flavor it gave to this vegetable.

Beef and Couscous Stuffed Baby Bell Peppers

Reviewed: Aug. 20, 2013
I chose to make this as an entree for dinner tonight and used a red, yellow, and orange bell pepper. I cut them in half and filled them, making 6 stuffed peppers. I really liked the flavor and especially enjoyed a new way to use the couscous.

Ranch Dressing II

Reviewed: Aug. 5, 2013
An easy ranch dressing that uses ingredients I usually have on hand. I subbed Greek yogurt for the sour cream. It makes a great dip but needs to be thinned a bit for dressing.

Apple Butter Pork Loin

Reviewed: Jul. 31, 2013
I followed the cooking directions in the most helpful positive review by Valerie's Kitchen, cooking my 3.78 lb. pork loin fillet at 350 degrees for approximately 20 minutes per pound. I used only 8 ounces of apple juice. Next time I will marinate the pork in the juice for several hours. I used my homemade apple butter, halved the brown sugar, and omitted the water. I served it with Garlic Mashed Cauliflower. Delicious!

Rated G Mexican Coffee

Reviewed: Jul. 31, 2013
I like this drink. The spices were subtle to me, certainly not overpowering, and the chocolate was the perfect amount. I can see this being addictive in the wintertime, maybe because cloves and cinnamon make me think of the winter holidays. My biggest problem was the straining. I didn't have cheesecloth, so I used coffee filters which took time. I may try brewing this in my coffee pot next time to see if the taste is similar. It would certainly be easier.

BLT

Reviewed: Jul. 29, 2013
Nothing is better than a classic BLT using thick-sliced bacon and a homegrown tomato straight from the garden! My favorite summertime sandwich!

5 Minute Slaw

Reviewed: Jul. 22, 2013
I rushed in after being out late, removed some chicken from the frig, chopped it up, and threw it in a skillet with BBQ sauce to heat it up. I located this 5 Minute Slaw in my recipe box and whipped it up. Then as I finished reading the recipe, I realized I was supposed to let it marinate 4-6 hours. Hmmm, not 5 minutes after all! No time for refrigerating! And that was my fault for not reading the recipe. Now, for what I thought of it. I didn't like it at all when I tasted it by itself. I think I prefer regular vinegar instead of the red wine vinegar. But I thought it was ok when put on the BBQ sandwich. Somehow, the BBQ sauce and chicken tempered the flavor of the red wine vinegar in the coleslaw. So, not a total loss, but I won't fix it again.

HERDEZ® Hot Chipotle Mocha

Reviewed: Jul. 20, 2013
I wanted to try this recipe so badly but couldn't find the Chipotle flavor, so I made it using the Herdez Red Guajillo Chile Cooking Sauce. I even doubled the amount the recipe called for. Aaaah...delicious!

Vanilla Ice Cream V

Reviewed: Jul. 19, 2013
This recipe was easy, but it was not a rich and creamy ice cream. One of my guests said it tastes like snow cream, and it does.

Savory Beefy Burgers

Reviewed: Jul. 19, 2013
I used my immersion blender and blended the Birds Eye Chopped Onions and Garlic just enough so there wouldn't be big chunks of onion in the burger. You certainly need to add seasonings to the meat. While I'm a fan of the packaged Birds Eye Recipe Ready products, I'm not a fan of this particular recipe.

HERDEZ® Creamy Tomatillo Avocado Salsa

Reviewed: Jul. 19, 2013
I love this dip. It's very fresh and light tasting and super easy to make. I don't like a lot of heat, so I used only 1/2 of the jar of cooking sauce. I also used less cilantro but didn't measure. This is an easy recipe to tailor to one's own taste. I served it with Roasted Garlic and Black Bean Artisan Tostadas.

HERDEZ® Three Pepper Cheesy Stuffed Jalapenos

Reviewed: Jul. 19, 2013
A delicious appetizer! I didn't have the habanero cheese, but it didn't seem to matter. I just used a bit extra of the cheddar and mozzarella.

Best Spanish Rice

Reviewed: Jul. 13, 2013
Wow! Who knew Spanish rice could be so easy? I always have these ingredients on hand, so I can make this at a moment's notice. I served it tonight along with Weeknight Skillet Fajitas.

Weeknight Skillet Fajitas

Reviewed: Jul. 13, 2013
This makes a quick and easy meal and tastes delicious! The only seasoning I had was Taco Seasoning I from this site, so I sprinkled it on my chicken before browning it. Then I added more to the veggie mixture when I added it in. My husband loved this and added hot pepper sauce to his. I added plain Greek yogurt to mine. I served these fajitas with Best Spanish Rice.

Dry Onion Soup Mix

Reviewed: Jul. 10, 2013
I was at my daughter's house keeping the grandchildren. She left instructions to make a roast with carrots and potatoes. I searched her pantry but couldn't find any Lipton Onion Soup Mix. Allrecipes to the rescue and, particularly, this recipe! The roast turned out great. I may never buy dry onion soup mix again when it can be made so easily!

Cornbread Cakes

Reviewed: Jul. 2, 2013
I believe the amount of buttermilk in this recipe is entirely too much and should be 3/4 cup, a little less if you use skim milk soured with vinegar. I followed the recipe but ended up having to add more cornmeal. The process of cooking stovetop works though. So here is what I will do next time: Whisk together 1 cup self-rising cornmeal, 3/4 cup buttermilk, 1 egg. Pour 1/4 cup into a non-stick skillet and cook over medium low heat until browned; flip and brown the other side. If desired, butter bread at this point.

Easiest Ever Chili

Reviewed: Jul. 2, 2013
Using the Birds Eye Recipe Ready Chopped Green Peppers & Onions certainly makes cooking chili, or anything, quick and easy. I can recommend it. This recipe, however, is not for us. I prefer chili with more sauce and more flavor. I took the photo and then had to add ingredients to the chili for us to eat it.
