Posh Squash

Reviewed: Sep. 20, 2011
This was really good, but also really rich. When I make it again (and I *will* make it again!), I'm going to reduce the mayo to 1/2 cup, and add either minced garlic or garlic powder, along with a dash of cayenne. This actually tastes better the next day, as the flavors have had a chance to meld fully. Great dish - thank your for the recipe!

Slow Cooker Thai Peanut Pork

Reviewed: Jun. 6, 2011
YES! This was a HUGE hit at dinner tonight! Prepared exactly as written (except for the garnishes - I was so hungry I forgot!) and it was PERFECT.

Curried Coconut Chicken

Reviewed: Dec. 29, 2010
SO good! I made a couple of small changes, just to reflect our personal tastes. I increased the curry poweder to 3 T. and added 1 t. of garam masala. I also used quite a bit more salt than the recipe called for, to balance the sweetness of the tomatoes and coconut milk. As another commenter suggested, I simmered the dish uncovered, and it thickened up beautifully. My husband had three servings before I made him stop so there would be something left for my lunch tomorrow! Thank you, Roma, for an easy and delicious recipe!

Slow Cooker Chicken Dressing

Reviewed: Nov. 10, 2010
This is cooking in my Crockpot right now, and I just sneaked a taste. PERFECTION! This is the dressing I remember from my childhood, and what I've been trying to achieve all these years! The changes I made were minimal and reflect my personal tastes, but I think it would have been just as good exactly as written. I didn't add chicken because we like ours separate, and I didn't use the white bread. I added a cup of chopped celery and sauteed it with the onion and sage in 2 T. margarine. I added that to all the wet ingredients and seasonings, then crumbled cornbread into the mixture until it was the consistency I wanted. Because the Crockpot is a very "moist" cooking environment, it will only thicken a bit while cooking, so make sure it's not too soupy at the beginning. Thank you, Mindy, for such a fantastic recipe. I can't wait to make this for my family at Thanksgiving and Christmas.

Creamy Cajun Shrimp Pasta

Reviewed: May 5, 2010
This was really good, and really easy. The only changes I made were to reduce the cajun seasoning to one tablespoon (it was plenty salty, even so), add one teaspoon of red pepper flakes, and reduce the pasta by half. This is a restaurant-quality dish, and I'd be proud to serve it to guests.

Dar's Super Savory Sauerkraut Potato Bake

Reviewed: Oct. 9, 2009
This was FANTASTIC! My husband is Lithuanian, and LOVES sauerkraut, so I'm always on the lookout for recipes that include it. This was just incredibly good. I made it exactly as written, but when I make it for my Lithuanian MIL, I'll probably omit the cheese , and add some crumbled bacon, using the bacon grease in place of the butter. Thank you so much for this recipe - it's going in the permanent file!

Unbelievable Chicken

Reviewed: Jul. 18, 2009
This did not turn out well for me. I followed the recipe exactly, and marinated my chicken for approx. 10 hours. The chicken itself was moist, but the marinade added nothing to the flavor. For such flavorful ingredients, I was really expecting more. I'm obviously in the minority here, though, so maybe I did something wrong. In any case, I don't think I'll be making this again.

Saucy Brussels Sprouts

Reviewed: Jun. 4, 2009
This was really, really good. I'm not a huge fan of brussels sprouts, but I try to eat them regularly because they're so nutritious. The sauce is perfect - not overwhelming, and relatively low in fat. My husband loved them, too. I'll be making these regularly.

Picadillo

Reviewed: Apr. 28, 2009
I made this exactly according to the recipe, and it was incredible! I served it with canned black beans (mashed, with onions and garlic sauteed in olive oil) and fried plantains. My husband I both ate until we couldn't eat another bite. The spices in the picadillo, and the melding of flavors with the beans and plantains were just fantastic. Thanks for an awesome recipe!

Sweet, Sticky and Spicy Chicken

Reviewed: Mar. 1, 2009
HOT!! HOT!! We LOVE spicy food, but if you make this recipe using Thai "rooster sauce", as one reviewer recommended, it will rock your world!! As some other viewers recommended, I dredged my chicken pieces in flour, so the sauce turned out nice and thick and "sticky". My rice wasn't all it should be (I tried using Aborio rice in place of sticky (sweet) rice), so I didn't have quite the buffer VERY spicy dish needed. Even so, I will definiely make this again. I love the burn!

Busy Day Chicken Rice Casserole

Reviewed: Nov. 29, 2008
This was really good, and very quick to put together. I made a couple of changes (who doesn't?) I used chicken breast tenders and pre-cooked my rice to reduce the cooking time. Even so, it seemed a little dry to me, so I added some milk to the rice/soup/soup mix mixture to thin it out a bit, and grated some Gouda cheese on top. It was a big hit with my daughter's fiance, who LOVES anything made with rice. One warning...you will have some WICKED onion breath the next day, due to the onion soup mix. Since we'd all eaten the same thing, nobody in my family cared, but I wouldn't want to go out in public too soon after eating this!

Split Pea Soup

Reviewed: Nov. 29, 2008
This was tasty, and a good way to use up leftover ham and the ham bone. However, I have a couple of tips. If you soak the peas beforehand (as I did) don't increase the liquid, as several reviewers recommended. I did both, and the peas turned to green mush, and the soup was far too thin for my taste. The flavor was good, however, which is why I gave it four stars. If I make this again, and I probably will, since my husband LOVES split pea soup, I won't pre-soak the peas, but will increase the liquid. Also, I used turkey stock instead of the water the recipe called for. With that, and the saltiness of the ham, I chose not to add the recommended amount of salt.

Amazing Italian Lemon Butter Chicken

Reviewed: Jun. 13, 2008
I really had high hopes for this dish, but 3 stars is about the best I can do. The sauce was SO lemony, that's all I could taste, so I had to do a lot of tweaking to get it to a point I'd feel comfortable serving. I added some chicken broth, milk, a little flour, and about a teaspoon of sugar to the wine/lemon juice and butter mixture. I did like the combination of bacon, capers, artichokes and mushrooms over the chicken, and after all my adjustments to the sauce, my husband really liked it. Bottom line, it was entirely edible, but not something I'd make again. Thanks for submitting the recipe.

Chicken with Asparagus and Roasted Red Peppers

Reviewed: Jun. 7, 2008
This was really, really good! The only changes I made were to add 2 T. of butter to the chicken broth, more balsamic vinegar (cause we love it) - maybe 2 T., and a little grated parmesan before adding the mozzarella. My husband using his finger to scrape up the left-over sauce, and he was a little miffed that I had only made enough for the two of us! I think, even with the added butter and parmesan, this is a very healthy dish, and will make it's way into our permanent rotation. Thanks for a great recipe!

Super-Simple, Super-Spicy Mongolian Beef

Reviewed: May 30, 2008
This was really, really good! Mongolian beef is my favorite dish when dining at Asian restaurants, and this definitely measured up. I was unable to find flank steak, so I used top sirloin instead. The only other change I made was to use low-sodium soy sauce, and it was still plenty salty. The beef was tender, flavorful and spicy. We love hot stuff, but if you don't, I think this would be just fine without the red pepper flakes. My husband I both loved this, and it will be going into my permanent recipe file. Thanks for a great recipe!

Slow Cooker Bean Casserole AKA Sweet Chili

Reviewed: May 12, 2008
This was really, really good. It took almost no time to prepare, and didn't require a long cooking time, either. I did add half of a large chopped onion when I sauteed the bacon and green peppers, then chopped up half a large jalapeno when I had everything combined, just because we like a little kick. The flavor was incredible. My husband just kept eating and eating, then finally said "what's IN this??" I've been trying to cut back on our grocery bill (who isn't), and this is a very tasty way to do that. Thanks for an awesome recipe!

Oatmeal Crispies II

Reviewed: Apr. 29, 2008
Other than using salted butter (unsalted tastes flat to me), I followed the recipe exactly, and these cookies were AMAZING. SO good and SO quick and easy. Thirty minutes from start to clean-up. I'll be making these a LOT. Thanks for a great recipe!

Charley's Slow Cooker Mexican Style Meat

Reviewed: Mar. 28, 2008
My GOODNESS, this is good! I just finished shredding the meat, and it's now bubbling away in my Crock Pot, waiting for my husband to get home. If I manage to wait for him, it'll be a miracle. I used a very cheap pork roast ($6.00 for a 6-lb roast), and I think the fresh pepper I used was a poblano (the kind they use to make chili rellenos. I also added half a small can of chipotle peppers in adobo sauce, but other than that I stuck to the recipe. I had a few nibbles when I was shredding the meat, and almost swooned!

Fusion Chicken

Reviewed: Jan. 28, 2008
I loved this, but my husband hated it so much, he refused to eat it! Turns out he hates cooked apples (good to know), but when I told him just to push them to the side and eat the chicken, he didn't like that, either. That's the only reason I didn't rate this recipe 4 or even 5 stars, for ease of preparation, originality, and flavor. I think if you like the individual elements of this dish, you'll probably enjoy it. I marinated my half-thawed chicken strips in the vinegar and spices for about 30 minutes before cooking. I also doubled the spice amounts, and added a little salt. I personally loved the combination of flavors and textures, and would make it again if he had liked it. As it is, I've got enough leftovers for two lunches, while he had to take a PB&J!

Cauliflower with Dijon Sauce

Reviewed: Jan. 17, 2008
This was unbelievably good! I'm not usually a big fan of cauliflower, but like brussels sprouts, I eat it anyway because it's so good for me. My husband loved it, too...in fact, we fought over who would get the leftovers for lunch (he won). I pretty much followed the recipe except for using less cheese - 1/2 cup - and sprinkling paprika on top before baking. Next time, though, I think I'll just coat the raw cauliflower with the sauce mix, and bake it in a dish large enough to spead the florets in a single layer. That way, each piece will be coated with the yummy sauce. Thank you SO much - I'll definitely be making this again!
