Green Pea Salad

Green Pea Salad

My local deli makes this with green onions and adds diced water chestnuts for crunch. It is so simple and good. — Erin_850 9/1/2013
Chile Verde Stew (guisado Verde) For The Crockpot

Chile Verde Stew (guisado Verde) For The Crockpot

Taste was great but after adding only half the broth and cooking it on high with the lid slightly off, it was still too runny for my preference. I added some instant tapioca and it thickened it perfectly. Next time I'm using just Better than boullion for the broth and using tapioca from the beginning. — bkprice13 6/24/2013
Careys Traditional Gyro Meat

Careys Traditional Gyro Meat

The second time, I substituted ground turkey for the pork and then formed it into a loaf and cooked it in a crock pot on low for 8 hours. It was a a lot more moist and my husband preferred the flavor. — pdxbodyworx 6/22/2013
Hungarian Mushroom Soup

Hungarian Mushroom Soup

This was great but a bit hot. I really want a slight smokey flavor and will use a mix if sweet, hot, and smoked paprika next time. I used mini portobello mushrooms that added a great texture. — Katalina56 4/15/2013
Greek Style Moussaka

Greek Style Moussaka

This was excellent. For some reason I had way too much of the ricotta and egg layer and only half would fit in the glass 9X13 pan I was using. 4/7/2013
Spinach and Smoked Salmon Fettucine

Spinach and Smoked Salmon Fettucine

I love this with the goat cheese but cannot eat goat cheese right now so I swapped it for cream cheese and added some tabasco. I think that I'll also add some tomato paste or sun dried tomatoes if I substitute cream cheese again. — susanjm 3/27/2013
Crockpot Beef Stroganoff

Crockpot Beef Stroganoff

Great taste! I added a can of mushrooms but will add two or fresh next time. I might try golden mushroom instead of cream of mushroom next time. — achelian 1/12/2013
Slow Cooker Buffalo Chicken Sandwiches (Crockpot)

Slow Cooker Buffalo Chicken Sandwiches (Crockpot)

I didn't have a ranch dressing packet so I substituted Johnny's Garlic Spread & Seasoning. Also the sauce ended up being very watery and I omitted the butter and thickened with corn starch. It tasted fantastic. — smobrien 10/30/2012
Magic Slow Cooker Meat Loaf

Magic Slow Cooker Meat Loaf

Tasted wonderful and very easy. Definitely making this one again. — Nikkocm 10/28/2012
Spicy Chicken Tortilla Soup

Spicy Chicken Tortilla Soup

I've been adding margarita mix in place of the water in the flour mixture. Absolutely love it! — Beachbumette 8/24/2012
Beef Stew

Beef Stew

I make this in a slow cooker with diced onions. It's delicious. — AntarcticCat 2/8/2012
Mocha Cinnamon Chocolate Chip Cookies

Mocha Cinnamon Chocolate Chip Cookies

I just tried this with instant coffee and they do not have quite the same rich coffee flavor. I'm going to try using the Starbucks Via next time as I can get this cheaper than espresso powder. I'm a bit perplexed by the person who said it was too dry. The only thing I can think of is that they didn't sift the flour and thus added too much. I wouldn't add milk in the future but rather more butter. It is the chemistry of the butter and sugars that give these cookies their beautiful lacy edges. The addition of a liquid will dissolve the sugars and change the texture. — AntarcticCat 12/27/2011
Herbed Artichoke Chicken - Crock Pot

Herbed Artichoke Chicken - Crock Pot

Really tasty. I served this over quinoa and will make again. — LorrisBaker 12/23/2011
Borscht

Borscht

So yummy! I was suspicious that the spice was too little, but I followed the recipe anyway. It doesn't need a thing. — sarahfromage 10/15/2011
Hungarian Goulash 2

Hungarian Goulash 2

I did a few changes and it tasted great. 1) Added Garlic 2) Tossed flour with the stew meat before browning 3) Mixed Spanish smoked paprika, sweet hungarian paprika, and hot hungarian paprika to taste 4) added whole bay leaves 5) added big chuncks of potatoes and cooked thoroughly (replace noodles) — bkprice13 10/11/2011

Made this tonight and it was great. This took me back to my summer in Israel overlooking the mediterranian. 6/11/2011
Coleslaw with Green Apples

Coleslaw with Green Apples

I used this recipe as a guide as I didn't have all the ingredients. I used cabbage, apple and carrot with the sauce made of yogurt, apple cider vinegar, dijon mustard, agave nectar and salt & pepper. It was excellent! 5/24/2011
Pho (Vietnamese Beef Noodle Soup)

Pho (Vietnamese Beef Noodle Soup)

I love this. I cook a roast to medium and thinly slice the left overs for pho on another night. It makes this super fast to put together. 1/25/2011
Sunchoke Chard Hash with Quinoa

Sunchoke Chard Hash with Quinoa

Finally made this tonight and it is excellent. Mild yet full of flavor and complexity of textures. Will definitely make again. — AntarcticCat 1/25/2011
