Slow Cooker Chicken Stroganoff

Reviewed: Apr. 7, 2009
I have made this a few times. I only use 1/3 of the Italian dressing mix and add 1/2 cup white wine and lots of sliced fresh mushrooms. It is our favorite slow cooker recipe by far!

Maple Salmon

Reviewed: Feb. 4, 2009
Great recipe. Very easy. Followed the recipe exactly and used salmon that was about 1 - 1 1/2" thick. I would suggest not using salmon that is thinner then that because the glaze is very sweet and would be overkill for a thinner piece of meat. Perfect for a thicker piece of salmon!

Sweet Potato Casserole V

Reviewed: Dec. 27, 2008
Really easy and very tasty. I have used a different recipe every time I have made a holiday dinner but now I have found the one I am going to just stick with. I followed the recipe exact except I used 3 cans drained sweet potatoes to cut down on time. Next time I am going to double this recipe. There were 8 of us for dinner and the whole casserole was gone. Everybody loved it and a few people commented that they liked the fact that there were no nuts.

Green Bean Casserole I

Reviewed: Dec. 17, 2008
I have never had Green Bean Casserole before but I always hear about it around the holidays so I decided to try it out. I thought I would test it out first before making it for Christmas Dinner next week. I am so glad I did!!! My brother-in-law ate with us and he has always told me Green Bean Casserole is great. He said this one was so so. My husband, sister-in-law, and myself didn't care for it at all. This recipe was very runny and that is after I reduced the milk to 1/2 cup and added about 1/4 cup grated gruyere. I will not make this again but if someone is reading this and you are still planing on making it, follow the advice from others and substitute the milk for 1/2 cup sour cream and add 1 cup grated cheese. That is the only way I could see this recipe being ok.

Best Chocolate Chip Cookies

Reviewed: Dec. 5, 2008
I have a tried a few chocolate chip cookie recipes on this site. This one is the best so far. I followed the advice from other reviewers and made the following changes: used only 1/2 cup white sugar, increased brown sugar to 1 1/2 cups, chilled dough in refrigerator 2 hours before dropping spoonfuls onto cookie sheets, flattened the spoonfuls of dough slightly before baking, reduced cooking temp to 325 degrees F, baked for 10-12 minutes. I also omitted the nuts for personal preference. In the past I have had a problem with cookies being too cakey. A few of the reviewers suggested this may be because of too much flour. So I was very careful when measuring the flour this time and didn't have a problem with these cookies being too cakey. My husband had friends over and they all tried them out and gave this recipe a 5.

Old Settlers' Baked Beans

Reviewed: Nov. 10, 2008
I followed Lorna's advice which was to make the day before, cook bacon before adding, eliminate white sugar, and increase brown sugar. I also couldn't find Great Northern beans so I used a can of mixed beans. I mixed all this the day before and put it in the fridge then I put it in a slow cooker on low in the morning and cooked it all day. I had a ton of people ask for the recipe!

Slow-Cooker Pepper Steak

Reviewed: Nov. 10, 2008
I followed this recipe exactly except I followed advice from others and added the chopped pepper during the last hour of cooking. There wasn't a lot of sauce at this point and it was very runny so I followed some more advice and added a full can of beef broth and more cornstarch. This helped the look of the dish but then I tasted the sauce and noticed it was very very bland. So I followed another reviewers advice and added worcestershire sauce, which didn't go at all. I then added a splash of red wine hoping that would help and that didn't either. I am giving this 2 stars only because my husband didn't think it was completely awful but he doesn't want me to ever make it again. I didn't care for it even before all the changes I made and was very disappointed considering the amount of great reviews this got. My husband and I ate just enough to not be hungry anymore. Huge waste of money!

Linda's Lasagna

Reviewed: Oct. 30, 2008
I've made hundreds of lasagnas all from different recipes because I have never found a recipe that I wanted to make twice. They usually end up with that acidic taste you get from using jarred sauce. An Italian chef told me that only meat, onion, crushed tomatoes, tomato paste, water, and some dried herbs should be used for a traditional meat sauce. So I came across this recipe which met this advice. I would say this recipe is very close to a 5*. I think all it needs is a little more taste. This might be achieved by following Meg Champagne's advice, which is to cook the lasagna the night before and then, on the day of, covering with mozza and cooking another 15 min. I also followed Andrea F's advice and used a hand blender on the cottage cheese mixture to get it to the same consistency as ricotta. Definitely do this because cottage cheese tastes better (and is cheaper) but the consistency of ricotta is better for lasagna.

Rosemary Roasted Pork Tenderloin

Reviewed: Oct. 21, 2008
I made this for a family dinner and it was devoured. I used 1 cup apple juice instead of concentrate because I had it on hand already and I only had time to marinate the pork for 4 hours before cooking. Everyone said it was awesome.

Romano Chicken

Reviewed: Mar. 14, 2008
Very good. I use a different cheese (usually mozza) only because I don't like swiss.

Pat's Baked Beans

Reviewed: Mar. 14, 2008
Very good. Next time I will add more bacon and some chopped red pepper. I also didn't have all of the different beans so I only used regular beans and kidney beans. Next time I make it I am just going to stick with those two types because it came out great.

Double Layer Pumpkin Cheesecake

Reviewed: Mar. 14, 2008
Really good and very easy. The only thing I did not like was the frozen whipped topping. Next time I will make real whipped cream.

Bacon Roll Ups II

Reviewed: Mar. 14, 2008
I can't throw a party if I don't make these or people get very very angry. When they are cooking a crowd of people gather around the oven because they are usually gone in under 5 minutes. People will grab them straight off the baking sheet as I am trying to take them out of the oven.

Awesome Sausage, Apple and Cranberry Stuffing

Reviewed: Mar. 14, 2008
The first time I cooked a turkey, I used this stuffing recipe. Everyone loved it. The next time I cooked a turkey I thought I would try a different recipe. It was just ok. So am only going to do this recipe from now on. The only thing I do different is to use a box of bread cubes instead of toasting my own, just to cut down on time.

Fruit Dip II

Reviewed: Mar. 14, 2008
This is really good. It tastes like liquid cheesecake. I made it for a party with fruit kabobs. Next time will just throw out a bowl of strawberries because that is what everyone liked best.
