Roasted Pumpkin Seeds

Reviewed: Oct. 2, 2010
I read the adjustments everyone said to try, but decided to go with the recipe as done. I sprayed the baking sheet with pam, then spread the pumpkin seeds on it, drizzled a little olive oil and a scoop of melted margarine (I Can't Believe it's not Butter) over the top of the seeds. A couple of grinds of sea salt, spread them out evenly with the back of a slotted spoon. and baked for 35-40 mins. (I stirred it twice during the cooking)... Really yummy!!

Sauteed Green Beans

Reviewed: Jun. 26, 2010
I used fresh green beans and cooked them a little longer and they came out fine! I didn't use the 1/4 c butter, but did put a pat of butter at the end of cooking (I thought the bacon drippings were enough to cook them in). Husband thought they were VERY good! (me too)

Sweet and Sour Meatballs III

Reviewed: Mar. 24, 2008
I made this for co-workers (we have a group that alternately provides a crockpot lunch on Mondays). I made my meatballs (turkey) from scratch, using a dense multi-seeded bread for breadcrumbs,egg and a handful of 'craisins'- then microwaved them in batches. The only changes I made to the recipe was to substitute Splenda Brown Sugar for the reg.brn sugar as we are all doing the 'biggest loser challenge' at work. The jar sauce I used had carmelized onions and roasted garlic in it. The comments from the 'crew' were 'Awesome!', 'to die for...', 'f--- wonderful'(from a woman who we rarely hear swear), and 'oh my God! this is great!!!'. One person came by my desk and said, "definitely 5 forks!" ... enough said? My husband even had enough left for our dinner that night. He loved it, too... need I say more?

A Nice Slow-Cooked Pork

Reviewed: Apr. 14, 2007
I decided to rub the salt, pepper & rosemary into the roast and brown it in olive oil, before adding to crockpot. I never measure 'chopped' potatoes, just cut up 4 med and 2 sweet potatoes. Didn't have pearl onions so chunked 3 med onions, and after reading how much liquid everyone's having left in it, I used a TOTAL of 3 cups between beef broth,rose wine & sherry (only had 3/4 cups sherry-rest was beef broth-1 can and wine to bring up to 3 cups). Also added 3" chunk off stalk of celery, cut to 1 1/2" sections and a few carrots,chunked up. Roast tasted good, but it 'shredded' when I tried to cut it. Would make GREAT shredded pork, but I may have to use a different cut of pork or let it sit a while before cutting-I think I used a boneless pork loin.

Easy Morning Glory Muffins

Reviewed: Feb. 18, 2007
Absolutely delicious!! My husband and I had these for the 1st time in a little local breakfast place on our honeymoon in Maine (we brought back 2 dozen). I've recently seen them at our coffee hour at church and the woman making them said she added pineapple to them (little too sweet). I adjusted the 1 c. oil for 1/2 c oil and 1/2 c. applesauce and after measuring the sugar called for, I shook some of it out of the cup (maybe used almost 1/4 c. less). Will make again and I'm sharing this with a friend.

Slow Cooker Beef Stew II

Reviewed: Jan. 12, 2007
Although I did make adjustments to this recipe, I may have cooked it too long (10 hrs) for my crockpot. The edges along the sides of the pot started to burn. The flavor was good, though. I added a pkg of dry onion soup mix and a few dashes of Worchestershire sauce and did change the condensed soups to 2 of cream of chicken and 1 of cream of muchroom. Will make it again, but cook for 8 hours.

Marie's Easy Slow Cooker Pot Roast

Reviewed: Dec. 31, 2006
I've cooked for 40+ yrs so when you hear what I did, must be my age(under 55).Used my new crock pot on this & made some adjustments.Added 2 more carrots,1 more potato, and 1/2 stalk of celery, but also rubbed the roast with Seasoned seasalt, and Badia's steak seasoning (instead of salt & pepper)before browning. I added 2 pkts of Badia Sazon Tropical flavor pkts & used 3/4 c. white zinfandel wine(instead of water), then decided to be creative & insert one clove of garlic(sliced) into slits in the roast & add 2 fresh bay leaves. I planned to cook it for 10 hours since I was going out, however after 4 hours of cooking on low, I realized I left the compressed cardboard packing between the outer & inner lining of the crockpot (I'd used this crockpot once before, just put it back so it was 'cushioned'. Since it was my first crockpot with a removeable liner,I'm not used to it yet.) I quickly lifted out the liner & knocked off the 'packing', &reinserted it into the outer pot.Figured the extra hr would do it good, since I'd just insulated the first 4 hrs worth of cooking time. When I got home I added more water to cover vegs, and realized it could have been done at 8-9 hrs, but didn't get a chance to try it until the next day. Very good!! A little salty, but that was MY fault. Next time, I'll leave out the flavor packets. Husband & I thought it was VERY GOOD, though. (Good thing I don't get spazzed-out about my cooking mistakes!)
