Japanese Zucchini and Onions

Reviewed: Jun. 29, 2010
What a great way to prepare zucchini! I cooked the onions longer than 5 minutes prior to adding the zucchini because I like my onions cooked to a light brown color. I also used half vegetable oil, half sesame oil. Aside from that, I followed the directions exactly and it came out wonderfully! Will make again and again.

Teriyaki Finger Steaks

Reviewed: Jun. 29, 2010
This was absolutely delicious! I couldn't get enough. I used top sirloin and made the marinade exactly as stated. I marinated the meat for about 3 hours and broiled it for 3 minutes on each side. It came out perfectly tender and juicy! I served over brown rice with a side of Japanese Zucchini & Onions (from this site.) I would probably give it a million stars if I could.

Slumgullion

Reviewed: Jun. 12, 2010
I cheated and used stewed tomatoes with basil & oregano. I also added red pepper flakes and Worcestershire sauce to the meat. Instead of cooking the pasta separately, I added some water and chicken broth to the tomato sauce/meat/tomato mixture, brought it to a boil, and just threw the uncooked pasta in there. It was delicious! Kind of like Hamburger Helper, but, you know... it tasted good.

Laura's Quick Slow Cooker Turkey Chili

Reviewed: Nov. 30, 2009
This chili is magnificent! It delicious as written, but can be modified to suit whatever mood you're in. I've made it with both ground beef and turkey and both work great! Usually, I will use one can of black beans, one can of white beans, and one can of kidney beans. I also use 2 cans of diced tomatoes with the liquid instead of the soup. If I want it spicier, I will add a few dashes of hot sauce and paprika, and maybe some green chilles. I always serve it with sour cream and cheddar cheese. SO GOOD!

Stuffed Cabbage Rolls

Reviewed: Mar. 3, 2009
DELICIOUS! I have made this a few times already, and they come out perfect every time. The preparation is a little time-consuming, but the end result is worth it. I do parboil the cabbage... the leaves come off effortlessly this way! I omit the onions, but I leave everything else exactly as written. My boyfriend and I gobble these right up! Thanks for the recipe!

Slow Cooker Italian Beef

Reviewed: Nov. 8, 2008
This is incredibly simple and delicious. I did not use an entire jar of peppercinis; I threw a handful in and it was plenty spicy for me. I now make this at least once a week... my boyfriend and I love it!

Slow Cooker Beef Stroganoff I

Reviewed: Nov. 8, 2008
This had a good taste, but it was just so unbelievably rich, to the point where my boyfriend couldn't even finish it. If he can't finish something, you KNOW it's rich! I'm assuming the cream cheese is what did it in.

Fabulous Fajitas

Reviewed: Jan. 26, 2008
I was a bit skeptical of the Italian seasoning on these fajitas, but they were lovely! SO easy to make and a nice, healthy alternative to the sloppy (and completely delicious as well) Mexican food I'm used to eating ;)

Roasted Garlic Cauliflower

Reviewed: Jan. 26, 2008
I had never tried cauliflower (unbelievable, I know), and it was so delicious prepared this way! I didn't change a thing as far as the ingredients go. I lined my pan with foil because I always end up having to soak my pans for weeks after roasting vegetables, haha. I also covered the pan with foil while cooking it... I think that's why my cauliflower came out soft and not a bit crunchy as some of the other reviewers have mentioned. Broiling it at the end was such a nice touch. The cauliflower was slightly browned and the cheese was melty... I love this!

Black Beans and Rice

Reviewed: Jan. 26, 2008
Very tasty, very easy to make. I omitted the onions because I'm not a fan. I tasted it before serving, and it was a bit bland, so I kicked it up with a bit of red pepper and chili powder which complimented my Mexican main dish perfectly. Will be making this again!

Holly's Hummus

Reviewed: Jan. 18, 2008
I looove this hummus! I needed a good hummus recipe that didn't require tahini, and this is it! I eliminated the olives, added a bit more garlic and about half a little jar of roasted red peppers. It was DELICIOUS, and there are so many variations you could make on this. I'll never eat store-bought again!

Chicken Apricot Bundles

Reviewed: Dec. 23, 2007
I'm sorry, but I just didn't think these were anything special. I upped the amount of apricots, and I still couldn't really taste them! I thought the pecans would add a bit of texture and crunch, but they got soggy during the baking process. Also, the cheddar cheese didn't seem to mesh well with the rest of the ingredients... threw the whole thing off. Perhaps these would taste better if you used fresh chicken rather than canned and eliminated the cheddar cheese. My boyfriend actually peeled the crescent roll dough off and ate just that! Won't be making these again.

Apple Dumplings I

Reviewed: Jun. 7, 2007
OH MY GOODNESS, THESE ARE SO GOOD! I have never made apple dumplings before, and I wanted to prepare a special dessert for my boyfriend (who loved them as well.) These were absolutely delicious! The biscuit dough soaked up the sauce without getting soggy. I did make the recommended changes; I used half brown sugar and half white, as well as cut the water down... I just added it until it was my desired consistency. I baked them for 15 minutes on one side, then 15 on the other. I added the sauce during the last 10 or so minutes of baking. I will be making these again and again and again... my favorite recipe so far from this site!

Garlic Green Beans

Reviewed: Jun. 7, 2007
I made these using frozen green beans, and it just didn't do it for me. They were bland and oily. I would assume just eat the beans plain rather than go through the trouble of preparing them like this. Oh, and the parmesan cheese was just an odd flavor to have with the beans.

Buffalo Chicken Dip

Reviewed: Mar. 20, 2007
This is my all-time favorite party recipe! I don't make it in a slow cooker; I just put it in a casserole dish and bake it on 325 until it's hot and bubbly. This is a definite crowd pleaser and a must for any get together.
