Slow Cooker Chicken and Dumplings

Reviewed: Mar. 21, 2011
This is a good start to an easy chicken and dumplings recipe, but I'm only giving it three stars because I think it needs tweaking. First, instead of adding water, I'd suggest chicken broth for more flavor. Secondly, I can't imagine using two packages of biscuit dough because I only used one 12-ounce package and even that was too much dough. Also, 30 minutes is definitely not long enough to cook the dough, and I added the dough when I knew I had an hour or so more to cook. The chicken itself was very good and tender and next time, I'll probably add some seasoning and vegetables and even more chicken broth.

Slow-Cooked Short Ribs

Reviewed: Mar. 21, 2011
This was the first time I've made short ribs in the slow cooker and it certainly won't be the last. This recipe is amazing. The combination of the chili sauce and powder, spices, and the sweetness of the brown sugar is very complimentary. I made sure the short ribs were covered in liquid with the fattier sides up and I placed most of the onions on top. The bones were literally at the bottom of the crockpot. I did not have to cook as long because I had three pounds of ribs versus four and I cut back on the ingredients accordingly. I also used regular vinegar because I did not have red wine vinegar on hand and I only used 1/4 cup. The meat was so flavorful and tender. I made this with mashed potatoes smothered in the sauce. I only regretted I could not make more at once because there were no leftovers and I only got one serving!

Chicken and Red Wine Sauce

Reviewed: Mar. 21, 2011
This is a great combination of ingredients and recipe for chicken. It's also great with mushrooms. The picky eaters in my household loved it.

Passion Bars

Reviewed: Mar. 21, 2011
I followed this receipt just as is - delicious, especially if you like sweets and peanut butter. It's a great way to make a snack with whole oats. They were very good after we let them cool, but we actually preferred them cold and chewy out of the refrigerator. My teenage ate half the pan in one night. I used the tip about slighty heating the peanut butter and condensed milk in the microwave before spreading and it definitely made it easier to spread.

Maple Salmon

Reviewed: Dec. 29, 2007
There is a salmon dish served at Cheesecake Factory that I cannot get away from ordering when we have the chance to go there and this recipe reminded me of one of the sauces they serve. It was delicious and this is now one of our favorite dinners. Even my son, who is sometimes a picky eater, loved it and asked for more. Excellent recipe - glad I tried it!

Pink Lemonade Pie

Reviewed: Aug. 11, 2007
This recipe needs adjustments. Not enough lemon taste - maybe more than 6 ounces. I think the suggestions of cream cheese instead of condensed milk is a good idea because it is just too sweet.
