Hoagie Dip

Reviewed: Mar. 7, 2010
We love this! I loved it as a kid, when one of my aunts used to make it, and I was so happy to rediscover the recipe here and find that my family still loves it. You can easily adjust/doctor up this recipe to suit your own tastes... For me, being from So. Jersey, I like cutting the mayo with sour cream, adding plenty of oregano and Itianian spice, and a good amount of red wine vinegar -- it just wouldn't taste like a hoagie without the vinegar and oregano! I have served this with fresh sliced baguette (though I do love the idea of hollowing out a round loaf for a bread bowl -- will have to try that). I also once heated up frozen rolls when I had bought everything in advance and couldn't get out the day of for fresh bread -- Alexia's makes some great ones (can't remember if they were French or sourdough) -- not cheap, but in a pinch... Will be making this regularly, now that I have rediscovered the recipe!

Slow Cooker Sweet and Tangy Chicken

Reviewed: Mar. 7, 2010
I really wanted to like this, but it was just sort of... eh. Not bad, certainly, but my family didn't just fall in love with it as so many previous reviewers had. Here's what I did, that added up to nothing truly special: 1+ bottles of Sweet Baby Ray's Honey BBQ sauce (maybe about 1 1/3?), juice from a large can of crushed pineapple plus a bit of the fruit, lots of garlic and a bit of fresh ginger combined and added to crockpot with chicken straight away; as per the advice of others, I waited to add the remaining fruit and peppers (1/2 red, 1/2 green) until most of the cooking was done. The flavor was ok, but I was disappointed that the chicken was kind of dry. I let it all cook for about 5 hours -- way less than the 8-9 stated in the original recipe, but still a bit longer than other reviewers suggested, because I had about 5 pounds of chicken going, so I thought it would take some time. Oh well! Next time I make this -- and I will try again! -- I will *definitely* reduce the cooking time even more, or else start with frozen chicken breasts. Also, I think I'll try the pineapple CHUNKS, as originally stated, since the crushed just seemed to get lost in the sauce. I will probably add even more peppers and some other veg, to add some more color and different texture. I'm going to hold onto this recipe, because it is OK, but I need to keep playing with it.

Butterscotch Gingerbread Cookies

Reviewed: Dec. 11, 2009
I think this is my new favorite cookie! I am generally NOT a gingerbread fan, but that flavor paired with the butterscotch is just. so. good. WOW. Also, they turned out very chewy, which is a plus in my book. Can't wait to make more!

Slow Cooker Ham

Reviewed: Oct. 20, 2009
2 stars because, while it wasn't *awful*, it really didn't go over well. Used a semi-boneless ham and cooked for 1 hour/pound, but it came out really dry and not at all tasty. I was hopeful that I had discovered a great new way to cook a ham, but given the results, I won't be doing this again.

Marinated Baked Pork Chops

Reviewed: Sep. 2, 2009
We enjoyed this. My husband wanted to grill the chops rather than have me bake them, and the sauce was nice for a marinade and basting. 4 stars because, while it wasn't over-the-top fabulous, still very good. I'll use it again.

Peach Pork Picante

Reviewed: Sep. 2, 2009
Easy and delicious. Everyone in my family likes this -- my sometimes-picky husband, my often-picky toddler, and myself. I serve it with black beans and brown rice. Still trying to find the best salsa to use (I did not think the smokiness of a chipotle-style mixed well with the peach flavor at all). For those who like it, a dollop of sour cream with each serving is divine.

Slow Cooker Chicken Stroganoff

Reviewed: Feb. 11, 2008
Not giving 5 stars only because While it was very good, it wasn't over-the-top. Tossed everything in at once (as other reviewers had done) and everything came out fine. Served with egg noodles and peas -- yum!

Grilled Gyro Burgers

Reviewed: Sep. 19, 2007
Yum! We made this into more of a "Greek taco"-style dish, just browning the beef (added garlic and oregano), then having everyone load up their pita as desired with the cucumber sauce, feta cheese, tomatoes, and lettuce.My husband even enjoyed it leftover for lunch the next day! Easy to make, and very tasty. I'll probably experiment with seasoning the sauce next time; the ranch dressing mix was fine, but I think the end result could be better with a little tweaking.

Lemon Herb Barbeque Sauce for Chicken

Reviewed: Sep. 19, 2007
We didn't think this was anything special -- not *bad* by any means, just sort of blah. Followed the recipe to the letter, marinated for a good while longer than I usually allow (all day long!), but did not get any good flavors in the finished product. Bummer.
