Monkey Bread I

Reviewed: Aug. 27, 2010
My main reason for rating this is to let you know this can be made the night before. I used 3 small (7 oz?) tubes of biscuits, followed the recipe for the cinnamon & sugar coating, and left them in the bundt pan overnight in the fridge covered with plastic wrap. In the morning, I made the caramel mixture (with a tsp. of vanilla as others suggested) and baked. They came out great! This step saved me a lot of time in the morning as I needed them for our early morning bus stop party.

Chocolate Chip Cookie Ice Cream Cake

Reviewed: Jul. 4, 2009
Although this recipe doesn't need any more comments, I'll explain how I doubled it. I used a 9x13" pan. I made an oreo crust for the bottom using 2 sleeves of crushed Oreos. Then added a half gallon of raspberry swirl. Then a layer of strawberry sauce and 1 sleeve crushed oreos. Another layer of strawberry swirl and covered that with whipped cream. Delicious!

German Chocolate Bars

Reviewed: Jul. 12, 2010
I LOVE these bars! Yup, they are very rich and very chocolatey (is that a word?) which is why we like them. I sprinkle some coconut flakes on top when adding the chocolate chips and frosting because I like a little more coconut. I never refrigerate before cutting; I simply let cool completely like I would brownies.

Basic Ham and Bean Soup

Reviewed: Jan. 17, 2011
This ham and bean soup was delicious! I followed some other reviewers' suggestions and bought a bag of mixed dried beans. I used the quick soak method and it worked fine. I put the leftover bone from our Christmas spiral ham along with all the other ingredients in the crock pot for 8 hours on low. Along with a loaf of Italian bread we had a hearty meal for a cold winter night!

Slow Cooker Chicken Taco Soup

Reviewed: Jan. 18, 2011
Delicious! I followed this recipe almost exactly as far as ingredients go, but added my own twist. Based on other reviews, I did leave out the beer. After I dumped in the ingredients, I put some water in each can to rinse out the contents and added that to the soup because it did not seem like enough liquid. After 7 hours in the crockpot on low, I added a (12 oz??) bag of shredded cheddar. I also mixed some cooled broth with flour and added that to the soup to thicken it slightly. We served it with hearty bread, tortilla chips, and a dollop of sour cream. My family loved it!

Easy Red Beans and Rice

Reviewed: Apr. 14, 2011
I am giving this 5 stars even though I tweaked it a bit. I used 1/2 bag of dried black beans (soaked cooked of course) because my family does not like red beans. I used a can of crushed tomatoes because I didn't want to do any chopping. At a friend's suggestion, I used a pack of Carolina Saffron yellow rice mix with seasonings found in the grocery store rice aisle. One packet was barely enough for my family of 4 so you may need to use 2 (it cost 75 cents!). My entire family LOVED this meal. We are from PA and don't care if it's authentic or not. It was easy and delicious!

Crabmeat Canapes

Reviewed: Jun. 19, 2009
I followed the advice of the other reviewers and used garlic powder in place of garlic salt. I also lightly toasted the muffins first. I was unable to find Kraft Old English cheese so I used Wispride sharp cheddar in the dairy section of the grocery store. These were very good. My kids loved them too, I called them "Krabby Patties"!

Easy Slow Cooker French Dip

Reviewed: May 15, 2012
My 8 year old wants to give this 27 stars! Seriously, this was easy and yummy. I followed the recipe exactly with the exception that I added a Tbsp. each of garlic and Worcestershire sauce as per other reviewers. I also added provolone cheese to my sandwiches and melted it. I used a chuck roast because it is what I had in the freezer. It was very fatty. I think next time I will choose a leaner cut of meat.

Slow Cooker Pulled Pork

Reviewed: Jul. 28, 2012
I know this doesn't need anymore reviews but this is delicious! The only "change" I made was after I shredded the pork I put the entire crock (mine is removable) in the oven at 400 degrees for about 30 minutes or so (just keep an eye on it). This helped the pork get that oven roasted flavor and allowed some of the liquid to evaporate or soak in or something.

To Die For Blueberry Muffins

Reviewed: Aug. 2, 2012
The title of this recipe is accurate. I have tried several blueberry muffin recipes but could not find one I liked. I followed this recipe exactly with the exception of brown sugar instead of white for the topping. I made this twice now, once with raspberries, and it was equally as good. I also added extra blueberries - a whole pint. I used a regular size muffin tin and sprayed generously with cooking spray.

Shrimp Scampi Bake

Reviewed: Mar. 26, 2013
Yummy! This shrimp was fab-u-lous! I used Herlocher's dipping mustard because that's what I had. I also followed Sydney's advice and added some bread crumbs and grated Parmesan/Romano at the end and broiled the shrimp. I used the full amount of butter and it was just right to serve over spaghetti. But don't make the same mistake I did, to make your life easier, be sure your shrimp is peeled!

Delicious Ham and Potato Soup

Reviewed: Apr. 1, 2013
I followed Barbi's suggestions to make this soup in the slow cooker. I was looking for a way to use up my leftover Easter ham and was tired of my usual (although delicious) Basic Ham and Bean Soup from this site. I used evaporated skim milk to make the roux after allowing the other ingredients to cook all day. I did add a little bit of marbled jack cheese to the roux and a bag of frozen corn to make it more of a cheesy ham and corn chowder. Other than those additions, I followed the recipe and it was yummy!

Dad's Leftover Turkey Pot Pie

Reviewed: May 23, 2013
This was yummy! It will be added to the regular rotation. I halved the recipe for my small family. I changed up the veggies because I had leftovers to use up. I used potatoes, carrots, corn, and green beans. I would like a little more gravy, however, so I will add more chicken broth next time. On another note, I don't understand how the most helpful critical review could possibly be helpful as the first line states, "I have not made this recipe."

Garlic Chicken

Reviewed: Sep. 9, 2013
My hubby gave this 5 stars, which is high praise from him! My kids and I gave it 4+. I followed the recipe exactly using grated Parmesan cheese from the refrigerator section of the grocery store as opposed to the powdered stuff. I only wish I had made more so we could eat the leftovers!

Sausage and Egg Casserole

Reviewed: Dec. 24, 2008
This is a delicious and easy breakfast casserole. I followed the recipe as is and my family loved it! However, I too found it was not necessary to refrigerate overnight (as another reviewer stated). My 8 year old requested this for Christmas breakfast and my mother-in-law wanted the recipe (so you know it HAS to be good LOL).

Spicy Beef Vegetable Stew

Reviewed: Dec. 9, 2009
This soup was awesome! My kids loved it. I added some fresh veggies I had around the house-corn, green beans, broccoli, cauliflower, carrots. I also added some shell pasta during the last half hour of cooking. I did not use the tsp. of pepper b/c I did not want spicy stew. I used only enough water to rinse out the sauce and tomato containers and I had to add more water after the pasta cooked to make it more like soup.

Cosmopolitan

Reviewed: Jun. 19, 2008
LOVE this drink! I also made a few changes, similar to the other reviewers. I use Rose's lime juice (purchase at the grocery store to save money). I substituted triple sec for the Cointreau because of cost. I also used citrus vodka because it was what I had on hand. Delicious!

Chicken Enchilada Dip

Reviewed: Sep. 17, 2007
I made this dip when it was my turn to host Bunco and I got multiple requests for the recipe. I did what several others had done--use half mayo/half sour cream and substituted Rotel for the jalapeno and chile peppers. I serve this with pretzel crisps found in the deli section of my local supermarket. YUM!
