This recipe is great! I followed other reviewer's recommendations and doubled the milk and butter. I also made sure the milk was warm before adding the potatoes. They turned out great, in fact I made this recipe two days in a row! Will make again.

Lime Chicken Soft Tacos
Rating: Unrated
Mamita's rating

This was great! I used to use chicken taco seasoning packets but hated how salty they were so I wanted to try a scratch marinade. This one was awesome. I followed other reviewer's suggestions and doubled the marinade (next time I will triple). I replaced oregano with cilantro, added splash of tequila. I used apple cider vinegar and it was good. I made the tacos nice and healthy by serving on whole wheat tortillas, topped with homemade guacamole (instead of sour cream), black beans, cheese and tomato. Also, I always make chicken tacos with canned chicken (all white meat-I stock up at Costco). I warm the canned chicken in skillet and dust with chili pepper. The chicken just shreds itself when mixed around wih the spatula. So easy and very good!

Delicious recipe!!! I make this at least twice a week. I use molasses instead of honey and oats instead of cormeal. I also add ground flax seed to make it even healthier. Geeat recipe-thanks!

Focaccia Bread

Mamita's rating

Great recipe!Received many compliments, next time I'll double as there was none left over. The bread was perfectly light and bubbly with excellent taste and (as bread always does) left my whole house smelling wonderful. I didn't have mozzarella so I used a cheddar/jack mix to sprinkle on top along with the parmesan and it was great! I will make this one often!

Simple Turkey Chili
Rating: Unrated
Mamita's rating

Delicious! I omitted the cayenne pepper for fear it'd be too spicy and it was great. Next time I'll add cayenne pepper. I served with cornbread and topped chili with cheese and sour cream. My husband turned up his nose at this when I told him it was made with ground turkey but after he tasted it he loved it and went back for seconds. Will make again and again!

Black Bottom Cupcakes

Mamita's rating

Great recipe. I followed the sugguestions of other reviewers and substituted coffee for water. They turned out great-moist and chocolately. No need to frost these, they're perfectly sweet and so pretty with the black and white swirl of the top. I got 18 cupcakes out of this recipes. I will definitely make these again!

Great recipe! I have made this several times and is always a hit at parties. I used frozen (thawed)peaches and fresh raspberries instead of grapes-turned out great. Easy to make and looks beautiful in a pitcher. Can't wait to make it again!

These are wonderful! The dough is the perfect consistency to scoop with a melon baller or small ice cream scoop making them so easy to make. Taste wonderful and turn out perfect everytime. Be sure to add the extra M&M's by hand before baking!

Easy Pavlova
Rating: Unrated
Mamita's rating

This is an excellent recipe that I have made several times and always forget to review. It is a great consistency and easy to make. I grew up having pavlova and this recipe is dead on! Mine always crack but you cover it with whipped cream before serving so it doesn't matter-it won't show. I also reduced the sugar to 1 c (still sweet) so topped (immediately before serving) with unsweetened whipped cream flavored with Chambord or Cointreau liquor -I have tried both with excellent results. I then drizzle passion fruit syrup (my family gets it in Australia but maybe could find in an Asian market?) and then top with fresh strawberries, kiwi fruit and berries (blueberries, raspberries and blackberries or any combo). I have also made individual sized for bridal/baby shower and substituted lemon pudding for the whipped cream so I could set out buffet style. Beautiful and delicious dessert!

Easy, Eggless Strawberry Ice Cream
Rating: Unrated
Mamita's rating

This was delicious- reminded me of my grandpas homemade ice cream. The only change I would make next time is to puree the majority of the strawberries as just mashing them left large chunks of strawberries that look very pretty but feel like eating big chunks of ice and kind of hurts your teeth. Next time I will follow reviewer Naples34102 recommendation of pureeing 1 1/2 c strawberries and mashing 1/2 c. Otherwise it was awesome and I'll absolutely make it again!
