Baked Slow Cooker Chicken

Reviewed: Apr. 22, 2012
I give this recipe 4 stars for the original method.. However if you doctor it up with more flavor then it is a 5 star for sure. I have made this 3 times so far. Attempt #1: Took advice from others and stuffed cavity with onions, garlic, and carrots. Lined the bottom with onions, garlic and carrots. Seasoned the 5 lb bird with rosemary, garlic salt, pepper, paprika, etc.. and cooked it as recipe says: 1 hr on high and then 8ish on low. Smelled amazing walking thru the door but was dry dry dry. We still ate it (seasonings were great and the veggies were to die for!) Attempt #2: 5 lb bird again.. seasoned and treated same as before but reduced cooking time (on LOW) to about 6 to 7 hours. Again.. dry. :( Attempt #3: 4 lb bird. By George, this time I think I've got it. This time I actually tried the aluminum ball technique.. generously seasoned the bird with olive oil, garlic salt, seasoned salt, paprika, diced garlic, pepper. 4 hours 30 minutes on LOW only.. divine. Next time I want to use potatoes as a base.. cooking is all about trial and error right? I finally figured out a way that is delicious and tender, but you never know.. maybe I could combine the fruits of my research (or should I say veggies of my research lol) and use veggies on the bottom with a 4 lb bird and cook on low for 4.5 hours. Yum!!

Flourless Peanut Butter Cookies

Reviewed: Nov. 20, 2011
Wow. Um, wow. I had these cookies out of the oven faster than if I had gone to the store and back to buy cookies. I did take a few ideas from other reviewers to incorporate 1/4 brown sugar, 1/2 cup white sugar (I used splenda actually), a 1/2 tsp baking soda, and 1 tsp of vanilla extract. I also threw in a small pinch of salt to balance out the sweet. I'm glad I did NOT use an entire cup of sugar. These are just... wow. Thank you for sharing!! So excited to have found this recipe.

Egg and Cheese Puffs

Reviewed: Sep. 11, 2011
Very good base recipe! I halved the amounts (just 2 of us). I didn't have any green chilies, so I added about a cup of chopped and sauteed onion (with garlic). Added 2ish cups of chopped spinach. I baked them in silicone baking cups, sprayed with Pam first and they popped right out! So light and fluffy.. yum!

Breakfast Grits

Reviewed: Aug. 28, 2011
This is really good. However, instead of water, I used 2 cups 2% milk and 1 cup water. And a splash of 1/2 and 1/2. I've also made grits using reduced sodium chicken broth and milk and they are also very good. Thanks for the recipe! These grits were thicker than my other go-to recipe and I like that. Not as soupy as before.

Christmas Morning Frittata

Reviewed: Aug. 19, 2011
Wow! I omitted the green pepper and tomatoes (didn't have any). Instead I added about 1.5 cups of cooked chicken, a whole bag of fresh spinach (sauteed with the onion before mixing everything) and lots of fresh garlic. Instead of mozzarella, I used mostly cheddar and jack mix with a 1/4 cup of parmesan. I also used 7 eggs. Sprayed a 9x13 glass baking dish with PAM and baked at 350 for 35ish minutes. I just tasted it right out of the oven, and I had to give myself a pat on the back. Go me. :)

Fried Broccoli

Reviewed: Aug. 7, 2011
This was a wonderful alternative to boring steamed broccoli. I used fresh broccoli, and LOVED the crunchy texture at the end. I added some minched garlic to the olive oil and red pepper flakes. Sprinkled with salt while cooking. This will be my go-to method for cooking broccoli from now on! :) Yum!

Roasted Brussels Sprouts

Reviewed: Jul. 31, 2011
AMAZING! I have always loved roasted brussel sprouts, but this recipe takes the flavor to a new level. I did NOT throw away the small leaves, as they were wonderful as they roasted. I cooked about 2 pounds of these little green balls of heaven, and have already consumed about half of the whole batch as I wrote this. :) Enjoy!!!

Lentil Soup with Lemon

Reviewed: Jul. 4, 2011
Wow.. mmmm!!! So as I read this recipe quickly (it looks and IS super easy), I accidentally added one WHOLE CAN of tomato paste. Whoops! Didn't realize it until halfway done cooking. So I just added another can of chicken broth to balance it out. I also added from fresh minced ginger and curry powder. YUM! I know I messed up while making this, but the end result was fantastic. I should screw up more often. ;-) Also, I omitted the cilantro (didn't have any), and topped off the pureed soup with a dollop of sour cream with the splash of lemon. Zesty, healthy (except for the salt content of my concoction, I would presume) and so very tasty!!!

Daddy's Fried Corn and Onions

Reviewed: May 30, 2011
I originally made this with canned white shoepeg corn (I can't stand the normal yellow canned corn). While it's still canned corn, it was so delicious. Here is what I did: Sauteed some minced garlic in the butter and then added the onion (I used a whole yellow onion by the way 'cuz I love onion). I sauteed that for a bit to reduce the juices. Then I added 2 cans of white shoepeg corn. Cooked all of it down for a while, and sprinkling with salt and pepper through the process) until the whole concoction became this yummy corn, onion-y, garlicky, buttery flavor. The corn and the onion really do blend nicely together. And with garlic, butter, salt and pepper, it's simply sublime. I do use a tad more butter than recommended, just so it can reduce and cook down more. Today I tried it with fresh white corn. 4 ears, same process as with the canned white corn. So far it tastes great!!

Cheesy Polenta

Reviewed: May 29, 2011
Fantastic! I made modifications per other reviewers' suggestions and it turned out so very tasty. I used chicken broth instead of water, 3/4 cup half and half (all I had) and the rest (1 and 1/4 cup) light plain silk milk. Next time I will try with just the silk milk (lessen the fat content). I was tasting as I went and actually liked the flavor BEFORE adding the cheese better (I used parmesan, again.. all I had). I barely added any butter, as it tasted great already. I used to only buy the pre-made, squeezed-in-a-plastic-tubey-thing polenta. Never again!! ;-)

Simple Sweet and Spicy Chicken Wraps

Reviewed: Apr. 29, 2011
Woweeeee! I really dig the flavor in this recipe. What a fantastic combo putting the honey, salsa, and cayenne together. I could eat the chicken all by itself, yum! I decided the use mostly nonfat greek yogurt with a touch of miracle whip (it's all I had). The cucumber and yogurt combo made this sauce very watery. It's more like a salad dressing or dipping sauce now. But VERY tasty. Next time I may try the mayo instead to see if it is spreadable. I love spice so I loaded up on the cayenne, but added a lot of honey to help counterbalance the spice. What a tasty dish! You won't be dissappointed! :)

Baked Taco Chicken

Reviewed: Jan. 6, 2011
This was a quick, SIMPLE, and tasty version of baked chicken! I used about 9 defrosted chicken tenderloins, and cut the amounts of everything else in half b/c I didn't need that much coating. Except another reviewer mentioned using less flour, so I reduced it down to 1/4 cup. Oh, and I used seasoned salt rather than regular salt. Before putting in the oven, I put a little bit of water on the bottom of the baking dish. This helped keep the chicken moist. I only baked it for about 20 minutes at 350 degrees. At 20 minutes, I drizzled about 2 tablespoons of melted butter onto the chicken and then broiled it for about 5 minutes. The result was very moist, well seasoned chicken. I would totally make this again! I dipped my chicken in some light sour cream. YUM~~ leftovers would be great on a salad, in a taco, wrap, etc. This dish tastes like a taco-less taco!

Knudsen Hot Broccoli Cheese Dip

Reviewed: Dec. 23, 2010
This dip is very good. I used about 3 fresh broccoli florets (steamed and finely chopped) instead of frozen broccoli. My family loves it. I used low fat cream cheese and low fat sour cream and you can't tell whatsoever. Yum!
