Slow Cooker London Broil

Reviewed: Nov. 16, 2013
If you want a slow cooker recipe because you really are willing to wait all day then this is the recipe for you. Don't make this if you think canned soup in a recipe is boring. Give it a try if you love comfort food and are on a low budget so you need to purchase cheaper cuts of meat. 8-10 hours on LOW, I repeat, 8-10 hrs on low will produce a roast that turns out easy to shred up. I purchased a cut of meat labeled 'london broil' but it was indeed a cheaper roast. Patience is a virtue here, do not open the lid to check on it. Trust your slow cooker to do its job. Serve over unseasoned rice, mashed potatoes or pasta and be done. The extra salt can be minimized by the suggestions of other reviewers. If you know you need a lower sodium meal use low sodium soups. I used a small can of tomato sauce instead of soup and added a splash of half and half, this turned out fabulous and did not have that purely tomato flavor, just tasted like gravy.

Sweet Potato Bread I

Reviewed: Oct. 11, 2013
I prefer butter to oil in bread recipes, used 1 stick of Land O Lakes. I also used 1 cup white sugar and 1/3 cup brown sugar (instead of 1 1/2 cups white sugar). It was plenty sweet. I like to add a rounded tsp of spices as well and added 1 tsp vanilla extract. My oh my was this light and sweet. Had enough extra for 12 mini muffins. Thank you!

Cinnabun Cookies

Reviewed: Oct. 1, 2013
These were addicting. I don't know how else to say it. Sweet, crumbly, melt in your mouth. Yum! I took other reviewers advice and rolled out onto plastic wrap dusted with flour then used the plastic wrap to roll tightly, placed in freezer for 10-15 minutes then sliced and baked without the extra dollop. After they cooled I drizzled with icing. They did not need the icing but it was great either way. Thanks for the keeper!

Spiced Apple Coffee Cake

Reviewed: Sep. 29, 2013
I made a few minor changes after reading the reviews. I used Ari's suggestions for flipping the cake, 2 tbl butter melted and poured into a spring form pan, sprinkle 1/2 c brown sugar and 1 tsp cinnamon over melted butter, place sliced apples in a spiral over cinnamon sugar mixture. I added the remaining apples, chopped small, to the batter (to which I also included 1/2 cup milk). Delicious recipe for early Fall and a great use for all those apples!

Sweet Potato Pie I

Reviewed: Sep. 18, 2013
My pic is pre-baking but the outcome was so perfect! The only modification I made was 1/2 cup brown sugar and 1/2 cup white sugar (which was quite sweet, I will add a bit less sugar next time) plus I used pumpkin pie spice and nutmeg, adding a touch more than stated in the recipe. I used a homemade pie crust and I peeled the sweet potato and chopped it into chunks before boiling it to cut down significantly on cooking time. Be careful, sweet potatoes can be very hard so be sure to use a heavy bladed knife. Happy Baking Everyone!

Kelli's Fried Green Zucchini

Reviewed: May 24, 2013
Excellent recipe for one of my favorite drive-thru snacks. We were given 4 very large zucchini so this was a great way to use it up. My family doesn't like zucchini very much but my girls enjoyed this with lots of cheesy sauciness. I added this to my recipe box, thanks!

Patchwork Quilt Pasta Salad

Reviewed: Apr. 26, 2013
I followed Mama Peppers' advice and made extra dressing, I doubled the batch because I intended to serve it the next day. At first I used only half the sugar for a double batch then realized it really needed it. The longer you cook the less tangy it becomes as the vinegar cooks off somewhat. Dressing was yummy. The veggies I used were frozen peas and carrots and one can of corn. I excluded the bell pepper, onion and celery. I used ziti pasta. Great recipe for a potluck style pasta, make it your own way! Thumbs up.

Black Magic Cake

Reviewed: Feb. 2, 2013
This cake is fabulous! I used almond extract in the cake and frosting instead of vanilla. It is so chocolately and decadent. This recipe made my day.

No Tomato Chili

Reviewed: Jan. 29, 2013
Upon reading the other reviews I decided to make this recipe because I know what my family likes and how to adjust the heat in dishes for my kids. That being said, if your children do not like hot chili then maybe making a recipe with two jars of chili sauce and 5 tbls of chili powder is not the best idea for them. I tweaked this recipe down to 2 tbls chili powder and just a healthy squirt of sriracha sauce. Instead of kidney and cannelini beans I used a can of black beans and a can of beans in chili sauce, both undrained. I also substituted beef broth for a can of beef consomme and added one tsp onion powder and one tsp garlic powder. The taste was phenomenal. I served this with sour cream & cheddar cheese. I would recommend this recipe for people who are used to making chili but are just looking for something different. Also, have a back up dinner option just in case.

No Roll Sugar Cookies

Reviewed: Jan. 25, 2013
This was a great sugar cookie recipe. I did not have any shortening, to my dismay, but I was glad I didn't use any because I used 1 cup (2 sticks) of butter instead and they were so light and buttery. The key here is to cream until fluffy...and sift the flour in like the recipe states. This makes a lighter dough. I chilled the cookie dough, overcame my temptation to eat it straight out of the bowl and made mini cookie tarts which once they were cooled I filled with vanilla pudding. Yum!

Homemade Chocolate Walnut Brownies

Reviewed: Jan. 2, 2013
I think this recipe deserves 5 stars by itself, but I made some changes that suited my own tastes. I used 1 full cup of semi-sweet chocolate chips (melted with the 3/4 cup salted butter in the microwave), 1 tsp vanilla (I like vanilla) and a few hand fulls of walnuts (didn't measure it, it must have been more than a cup). I baked it in a 9x13x2 glass casserole dish sprayed with PAM, for 30 minutes, perfect thickness. Very good not dry but not gooey and perfect sweetness. I will use this recipe for brownies from now on, mainly because I did not NEED a glass of milk to go with them. I also did not get the pic I wanted because I had 6 children yelling for brownies and I didn't have time, lol.

Easy Decadent Truffles

Reviewed: Dec. 15, 2012
I changed the amounts like a few other users suggested. I used Philadelphia brand cream cheese. The store brand never seems to work for me in recipes. I used 2C confectioners sugar and a 16 oz bag Guittard semi-sweet chocolate chips plus 3 squares of chocolate almond bark melted in with the chips (melted in microwave, 50% power for a couple minutes). I used 1 tsp vanilla and added 2 tbs heavy whipping cream. I put it in the fridge for 30 minutes, then I scooped out 1 inch spoonfuls onto a cookie sheet lined with parchment. I popped them back in the fridge. Meanwhile, I got all my topping ingredients ready. I made up some really tasty combo's such as cinnamon walnut and mocha espresso. This was a fun recipe to make. After my toppings were prepped I washed my hands with cold water, dried them well and rolled the scoops of chocolate very quickly into perfect balls. I then dipped and sprinkled them. I tried to place them on a rack over a cookie sheet but they were very difficult to remove because the bottom melts around the rack as they harden and then they break. Its easiest to just dunk them and then remove with a spoon. I will make these again, thanks!

Chocolate Chip Pumpkin Bread

Reviewed: Nov. 25, 2012
I tweaked this recipe by using 3 eggs instead of 4, cut the oil to 1/2 cup and added 1/2 cup applesauce, I used 1 1/2 cups of semi sweet chocolate chips, reduced the sugar to 2 cups white and 1/2 cup light brown, and used allspice instead of nutmeg. The recipe resulted in 1 Bundt, 1 cake pan and 6 muffins. The texture was fluffy and cake like. It turned out very tasty in my opinion. I enjoyed this with coffee.

Turkey Tortilla Soup

Reviewed: Nov. 25, 2012
I made this with some leftover turkey from Thanksgiving. I did tweak it a bit by first sauteing 1/2 cup chopped onion and 4 celery stalks in olive oil. I then added the chopped turkey and browned it a bit before adding the chicken broth and cream. I doubled the green enchilada sauce and omitted the red enchilada sauce. My family loved this topped with salsa, tortilla chips, shredded Monterrey jack and sour cream. Yum!

Brooke's Best Bombshell Brownies

Reviewed: Sep. 11, 2012
Delicious...these were the perfect thickness for me. It had a bit of a crust on top, not crumbly, not chewy, not cakey. Just right! I cut the sugar to just 2 cups and used milk chocolate chips. Another reviewer warned not to cut the sugar but I did and they were just perfect for me. Can't stop raving. I used butter...this is key to the richness. That and Hershey's cocoa and chips. Awesome.

Old Settlers' Baked Beans

Reviewed: Sep. 3, 2012
Very, very good! We had these beans as a side dish to hamburgers and hot dogs on Labor Day. I am making them again for my daughters Birthday party. I omitted the white sugar and increased the br. sugar to 1/2 cup. Next time I will slow cook them in the crock pot. Deserves the 5 stars!

Bread Pudding I

Reviewed: Aug. 25, 2012
My family loved this! Even my hubby who has never tried bread pudding before. Seconds were dished out to everyone. I love that it was cooked perfectly, it was not at all dry or runny.

Dairy Free Cinnamon Streusel Coffee Cake

Reviewed: Aug. 11, 2012
I played around with this and it turned out pretty good. I would recommend apple sauce for a moister cake. I like a sweet batter also, as another member suggested. I used Krusteaz brand pancake mix and added an additional 2/3 cup of white sugar. I also added cinnamon to the batter as well. Instead of using soy milk, I used 2/3 cup of sugar free vanilla coffee creamer and 1/4 cup of regular milk. I also added 1 Tbl of vanilla for more flavor. Flavor was really good, I only wished I had included the apple sauce also. This is a keeper.

Sour Cream Salad Dressing

Reviewed: May 11, 2012
I was not sure about adding brown sugar but in the end I added it and it turned out very nice. I read another view that said to add chives, which I did and that made it even better. Also, I did not have any cider vinegar so I used white vinegar.

Melt - In - Your - Mouth Shortbread

Reviewed: May 4, 2012
These are SOOOO good. I want to give it more stars. I added about 3 tbl of white sugar a few drops of lemon juice and 2 tbl finely grated lemon peel to the cookie dough. I topped the cooled cookies with homemade lemon buttercream frosting and they really did melt in your mouth. I already saved it. Next time, dutch cocoa! Mmm
