Traditional Creamy Coleslaw

Reviewed: Nov. 23, 2013
This was delicious! I didn't have quite enough horseradish so I added some French's horseradish mustard and just skipped the dry mustard. Like another reviewer, I like a bit of onion in my slaw so added some minced onion as well, but otherwise followed the recipe exactly. It was a big hit at our "autumn picnic" at work! Next time I make it I will make sure to have enough horseradish on hand for even more zip! Do pay attention to how much slaw is in the package you use (since most aren't 28 oz.) or you will have way too much dressing. I always mix the dressing in one bowl and put the slaw in another and add til I get the consistency I want. Definitely my go to slaw now!

Fiesta Fry Pan Dinner

Reviewed: Oct. 8, 2011
Really enjoyed this dinner! Made a few simple changes and came out great. Used Rotel tomatoes with green chilies to give a little kick. Didn't have zucchini, but added some sliced black olives instead. Did not have plain instant rice, so used a packet of Lipton Rice and Sauce Mexican Rice and only about 1/3 packet of taco seasoning. Came out just fine using the directions that were given! Sprinkled in a little ground ancho chili toward the end and topped with sour cream. My son absolutely loved it, and we're already working on other possible add-ins. Can see that it would be a bit bland without the chilies, but if you prefer a milder taste I'm sure it would be good as written!

Zesty Slow-Cooker Italian Pot Roast

Reviewed: May 15, 2010
My family really enjoys this roast! First time I made this, I had everything on hand but the plum tomato, so I used a can of Italian-seasoned diced tomatoes instead. I did not drain them, and skipped the 1/2 cup of water and separate seasonings. Came out great, and I continue to prepare it this way. We love garlic, so I do add a little extra... I have also added Italian green beans when I have them. The meat comes out tender, and the tomato "gravy" is a nice change from the standard onion soup/brown gravy/cream of mushroom rut that most roasts for the slow cooker fall into. This has become a staple at our dinner table! Love it!

Slow-Cooked Chili

Reviewed: Mar. 14, 2010
This was indeed a good starter chili recipe. I used flank steak cut into small cubes instead of ground beef, but otherwise pretty much stuck to the recipe as written. It was mild, which was great for me, but my son prefers a little more kick and added some hot sauce to his bowl. After reading other reviews saying it was a little watery, I did drain one can of the tomatoes, and took the lid off the cooker for the last 30 minutes, which helped - it would have been too thin for my taste if I hadn't. All in all, a nice mild chili to "play with". Will definitely use this recipe again!

Slow Cooker London Broil

Reviewed: Feb. 14, 2010
Sometimes a recipe that looks this easy needs so much tweaking that it is almost a completely different recipe in the end. Not this one! Super fast and simple, and tastes delicious. My 18 yr old son has even made it himself to surprise me when I get home from work! It is tasty as written, though I have used different cuts of meat (my fave has been London broil), and tried using both onion soup mix and beefy onion soup mix - depending on what I have on hand. Always comes out equally delicious. I agree about doubling canned soups to get extra gravy. I have found the best combo for me is one can of the creamy soup (I don't like mushroom so use cream of celery) and 2 cans tomato, and one package of dry mix. I have also added thawed frozen veggie combos as some have suggested, and have done it without them and made mashed potatoes as a side (the gravy is awesome on them!). This is truly one of the better recipes I have tried in my slow cooker.

World's Best Bacon Cheese Dip

Reviewed: Dec. 5, 2009
As is, this dip is a 3 star recipe. I first tried this at a party several years ago, and thought it tasted great but was way too oily, and got worse as it cooled. I made some revisions and now I get requests for it for every gathering or party I go to! I use 1 cup light or fat-free mayo, an 8 oz block of neufchatel cheese, and 8 oz of shredded monterey jack. Blend together the cheeses, mayo and scallions and press into a microwavable pie plate or similar size casserole dish. Crush about 10-12 Ritz crackers, and add crumbled bacon bits into the crackers. Top the cheese mixture with the crackers/bacon, covering to edges. Microwave for about 7 minutes or until the cheese bubbles. This is AWESOME. Doesn't get greasy, it is gooey and delicious! I use breadsticks, melba toast, or bagel chips and it is ALWAYS a hit.

Sugar Snap Peas with Mint

Reviewed: Aug. 15, 2009
Loved this! So fast and easy to make. A friend gave me some fresh mint from her garden, and it was so delicious! I have passed this recipe on to many friends and they all come back and say they loved it. You can add more or less garlic and green onion, as your taste desires, and you really can't go wrong. A wonderful find!

Chuckwagon Stew

Reviewed: Sep. 9, 2007
I tried this because it sounded super simple, and I had everything I needed on hand. My brother was coming to visit and this was right up his alley! I made it exactly as it was written, and it was delicious! There was enough "juice" from the beans (I was expecting to have to add more bbq sauce, or broth or something), and the meat was so tender. I did 5 hours on high, and all was done perfectly. My brother and son both had seconds, and what was left was gone before bedtime. Will definitely make this again, maybe do a little tweaking this time. Yummy!
