Slow Cooker Cream of Potato Soup

Reviewed: Sep. 25, 2008
This is so easy and so yummy! No leeks at my local market, so I used a Spanish onion instead, and added some sauteed carrot and celery after I mashed up the soup - no blender so I used a potato masher before adding extra veggies. I can imagine this would be amazing with some bacon or smoked sausage, as the contributor suggested. A little cheddar cheese on top is great, too!

Alyson's Broccoli Salad

Reviewed: Sep. 9, 2011
Broccoli is not my favorite veggie, but this was fantastic! Had to modify it a little bit based on what I had on hand - even health-ified it with light mayo and turkey bacon - and it was still fantactic. Almost like broccoli slaw, but with some added kick. Brought it to work for lunch several days, and people were very interested in what I was eating and asked for the recipe. A lovely summer salad!

Colored Sugar

Reviewed: Mar. 17, 2011
Simple and easy! This worked fabulously. Took about 9 drops of liquid color for really vibrant colored sugar. Thanks for sharing!

Raspberry Coconut Layer Bars

Reviewed: Nov. 27, 2009
These are to DIE for! So rich and lovely! I have made these twice now, and have given out the recipe many times. People love them! They look impressive, too - someone asked me if I had gone to a bakery to get them. They do take a VERY long time to make because of having to wait for things to set and chill, so make sure that you make these a day or 2 ahead of when you need them - they are not something you can whip up the morning before a party. Just a tip - I had some trouble getting the chocolate to melt to a consistency where it would drizzle prettily. My solution - I heated a pan of water to almost boiling and then turned off the heat. I put the white and semisweet chocolates in different Ziploc bags and placed them in the water to melt. Once they were all melted, I cut off one corner of the bag and voila! Chocolate drizzle!

Steak Tip Marinade

Reviewed: Jul. 14, 2008
First time I ever tried marinating sirloin tips and this was super yummy! My family really loved it and I was impressed myself. I followed the recipe exactly and let the tips sit for about 36 hours before cooking. Great flavor and so good!

Brooklyn Girl's Penne Arrabiata

Reviewed: Apr. 11, 2008
This was SO YUMMY! I made it exactly according to the recipe, and although I loooove my food spicy and thought this had a lovely kick to it, I will probably cut down the red pepper next time I make it for my family members who do not like spicy food. Had leftovers for lunch today and it is even better after sitting for a day - the flavors are just great. At least as good as my local Italian restaurant, if not better!

Chicken Wing Dip

Reviewed: Nov. 30, 2008
MmmmmmmmmmmMMmmmmmmm. Easy to go overboard and eat way too much of this! Used bleu cheese (Ranch is NOT what goes with buffalo wings for me.) and it was super super SUPER yummy. Needs to be warmed up for me. Served it with celery sticks. SO GOOD!

Four Cheese Macaroni

Reviewed: Nov. 27, 2009
I have made this several times now exactly according to the recipe, and people love it. It seems a lot of reviewers have played with the recipe, but it is very good as it is, too. It does make a mess out of the kitchen with all the cheese shredding, and it probably costs $20 to make each time because of all the cheeses you need to buy when you make it. This has become a very "special occasion" mac and cheese for my family, but everyone always enjoys it and people ask for the recipe all the time. Who doesn't love a good, homemade mac and cheese?

Chocolate Truffle Cookies with Sea Salt

Reviewed: Dec. 16, 2011
These are so rich and chocolatey! You REALLY have to like chocolate for these. They're amazing warm and gooey from the oven, and the sea salt sprinkled on top is absolute perfection (I am on a sea salt kick right now anyway...). Found that these were pretty much perfect at 350 degrees in a gas oven for 8 minutes, although the bottoms sometimes got stuck to the pan due to a chocolate chip that got stuck. No one can tell from looking at the top, though. Only negative here - SO VERY RICH one is almost too much, and these definitely won't travel well (was hoping to add to my Christmas cookie shipments to friends and family out of state).

Prize Winning Baby Back Ribs

Reviewed: Sep. 9, 2011
This was my first time making baby back ribs, so part of my disappointment may come from that and I won't blame the recipe. The flavor this recipe created was awesome, we just found that the meat was drier than we would have liked. Will probably try again and hopefully not overcook the meat...

Simply Traditional Lasagna

Reviewed: Oct. 10, 2007
Had to cook this without the olives due to some picky eaters in the bunch I was feeding. I think it is probably a TON better with them. Used regular old lasagna noodles (without cooking them) and added a little extra water to make sure they cooked. This turned out lovely - I will definitely make it again. Plus it seems like a great recipe for playing with - add spinach to the marinara sauce, using different meats and cheeses, adding onions, etc.

Asian Beef with Snow Peas

Reviewed: Feb. 4, 2011
This was yummy, and such a nice way to cook beef! My husband loves steak, but always wants it cooked the same way. Tried this last night and he is a fan! Threw some water chestnuts in as well, and used sesame oil for a little more flavor. Great over brown rice, and really filling! I am hoping the leftovers will be even yummier today!

Jif® Peanut Butter Blossoms

Reviewed: Aug. 26, 2010
These are my fiance's favorite cookies, so I get requests for these a lot! This has to be one of the better recipes out there for this type of cookie - nice and soft PB cookies with the creamy chocolate on top! The only variance from the recipe that I notice is that, for my oven at least, these cookies only need to bake for about 8 - 8 1/2 minutes. Watch them closely because they burn and the bottoms turn black pretty quickly once they are overbaked!

Irish Cream Truffle Fudge

Reviewed: Mar. 22, 2010
Made this recipe as is for my fiance's parents' annual St. Patty's Day Party. This recipe made a TON of fudge and it was wonderful - creamy and smooth, but did it ever pack a punch with all the liqueur! You took your first bite and when you inhaled you could feel the fumes! Most of the people at the party (grown-ups) liked it, but several people couldn't eat a whole piece because it was too strong, and it is DEFINITELY not for sharing with the little ones. Next time, I will try using maybe 1/2 cup of Irish cream and 1/2 cup of regular cream to make the flavor a little more gentle. I don't want to mess with the consistency, because that was just perfect, but it may need to be toned down just a little...

Slow Cooker Beef Stew I

Reviewed: Nov. 28, 2009
Made this just as written, tasted yummy and the house smelled great all day long while it was simmering in the crockpot! Next time I make this I may double the broth and add more potatoes and veggies - I like to make LOTS when I make soups/stews and freeze the leftovers for work lunches and this recipe didn't make a ton of stew.

Grandma's Corn Chowder

Reviewed: Nov. 28, 2009
Had a WICKED craving for corn chowder for some reason, and this fit the bill. This chowder is rich, creamy, and sweet. Next time I make it I will add more potatoes and things because I like chowders more chunky, but that is just personal preference. A nice thing about this recipe is that it was easy to slim down a bit for my diet! I used fat-free half and half and Canadian bacon instead of regular, and you would never know the difference! Such great comfort food :)

Chicken Chow Mein

Reviewed: Sep. 9, 2011
This was a pretty good, basic recipe - I am sure it could be customized to your own taste. As it is, I found it a great way to clean out leftover veggies - throw in some mushrooms, beans, frozen mixed veggies, it all works. I think next time I make it, though, I will try to use Asian veggies like straw mushrooms, water chestnuts, etc. Having authentic chow mein noodles made a big difference with this recipe, I think, and also I used a little sesame oil instead of the butter to add some nice flavor to the recipe. Overall, a keeper. Thanks for sharing!

Nutmeg Logs

Reviewed: Dec. 11, 2006
Nice delicate flavor - almost like a shortbread texture, but with a nice nutmeggy taste. I got about 40 cookies from this recipe. One thing I wished I had done - I made them for Christmas cookies, and I wish I had rolled them in colored sugar for a festive touch!

Cookies 'n' Creme Fudge

Reviewed: Nov. 27, 2009
4 ingredients - so easy! To make sure you don't burn or brown the chocolate, use a double boiler. Chopping the cookies with a knife makes a prettier end product than crushing them with a blunt object.
