The Best Bean and Ham Soup

Reviewed: Sep. 30, 2008
Great soup, but it makes a HUGE pot. I read the previous reviews indicating that it was a big pot, but I didn't fully appreciate how big until I made this. I started in my slow cooker (that I think is pretty big) and had to move the soup to my largest stockpot because I ran out of room. Since I ran out of room in the slow cooker I also ran out of time to cook it in the evening and had to cook it for a couple of hours in the evening, put it in the fridge and then finish cooking it the next day. It still turned out great! Definitely the best ham and bean soup I've made. Thank you for the recipe!

Fasoliyyeh Bi Z-Zayt (Syrian Green Beans with Olive Oil)

Reviewed: Jun. 17, 2007
Fantastic! The combination didn't sound very good, but it was delicious. It was a bit greasy so I may cut back next time.

Charley's Slow Cooker Mexican Style Meat

Reviewed: May 30, 2008
Wonderful! I used poblano peppers and jalapenos for the chilis and it wasn't too spicy. I also forgot to brown the meat and it turned out just fine. This is great with beans, in soups, with eggs, on salads, etc....Very versatile and delicious. My husband says that it tastes even better than what we get at our favorite restaurant. Thanks!

Egg Noodles

Reviewed: Nov. 10, 2007
I've never made noodles before and didn't really know what to do at every step. My dough was pretty sticky so I added some flour, but I wasn't sure what it should feel like. I also forgot to knead the dough for 5 minutes and have no idea what "dry" noodles should feel like. Despite this, my noodles turned out pretty good. Mine were thick, so I called them dumplings. Evidently, this is a very flexible recipe. Thanks for inspiring me to try pasta making!

Slow Cooker Oatmeal

Reviewed: Sep. 23, 2007
I really wanted this to work. Unfortunately, this was a disaster in our crockpot. Most of it was stuck to the sides and the middle was sort of a runny mess. Maybe this recipe is entirely dependent on your crockpot. I guess I'll go back to baked oatmeal.

Slow Cooker Chile Verde

Reviewed: Sep. 23, 2007
I've made this recipe quite a few time and we love it. I leave out the jalapenos because the salsa I use is spicy enough for us. I made it again today and didn't read the recipe. I forgot to brown the meat and add onion and it was still delicious (and even easier). I should also add that I have no idea what kind of pork I used since it was pre-cut and just called "pork stew" meat. That might make a difference as to whether you have to brown the meat or not. I love recipes that I can't screw up no matter how hard I try. Thanks!

Baked Vegetables I

Reviewed: Jul. 22, 2008
Veggies are great this way! I toss in any vegetables we have to use up and we inevitably eat them all. This is also very good with smoked sausage thrown in toward the end of the cooking time. Thank you!

Insalata Caprese II

Reviewed: Sep. 23, 2007
This is good as it is. It is fabulous with balsamic vinegar. This also makes a great sandwich on crusty bread.

Ranch Dressing II

Reviewed: Aug. 12, 2008
I can't believe I used to buy salad dressing in bottles. This takes just a few minutes to make and tastes great. I used 1/2 cup each of mayo, sour cream and buttermilk. The recipe is very forgiving. I only have a teaspoon measuring spoon so I estimated the herbs and it was perfect.

Shepherd's Pie VI

Reviewed: Sep. 23, 2007
Good comfort food. I've made this with ground beef as well as boca crumbles and I don't think that anyone could tell the difference. I used peas and carrots to give it a bit of texture and also added a bit of worcestershire sauce to the meat. Thanks for the recipe!

Cheesy Sausage Zucchini Casserole

Reviewed: Sep. 23, 2007
This isn't a particularly attractive dish, but it's good comfort food. I don't like mushrooms so I leave those out and add a bit more zucchini. The leftovers reheat nicely. Thanks for the recipe!

Apple Crisp II

Reviewed: Sep. 23, 2007
I've made this many times and my husband loves it. I think that the amount of topping is perfect. It's even better if you add some crushed nuts (pecans or walnuts). I think it's a bit too sweet, but no one else agrees with me so I have not tried to cut back on the sugar.

Sukhothai Pad Thai

Reviewed: Sep. 23, 2007
Thank you for the recipe! I recently moved from a big city to a smallish town and was desperate for Thai food. This was amazing--better than many restaurants I have been to. I didn't have oriental radish and so I left that out. I couldn't find tamarind pulp, so I used lime juice as a substitute (I should point out that I have no idea what tamarind pulp tastes like or if this is a reasonable substitute). The first time I made it I misread the recipe as 1/2 cup of peanuts. Be sure to use all 1.5 cups. I also leave out the tofu and use rice vinegar rather than white. Bean sprouts often look rather bad at my grocery store so I've used cucumber and shredded carrots for toppings. Sorry that this isn't true to the original recipe, but I just haven't been able to get all of the ingredients.

Black Bean Vegetable Soup

Reviewed: Sep. 23, 2007
Wonderful and easy. I always use three cans of beans and a bit less broth than the recipe calls for. Perfect with diced avocado and/or fresh salsa on top. Thanks for the recipe!

Beef Barley Vegetable Soup

Reviewed: Nov. 29, 2008
I thought this was ok, but my husband didn't like it. I'm not sure what went wrong because we like a lot of different vegetable soups. It did taste sweet to me, so if I tried it again I'd leave out the sugar.

Beefy Lentil Vegetable Soup

Reviewed: Nov. 29, 2008
I used spicy V8 and the soup turned out great (not at all spicy). I don't like mushrooms so I leave those out and add extra carrots and celery. I've also added other veggies--it's a great soup for using up whatever you have. Thanks!

Chocolate Chip Cheese Ball

Reviewed: Nov. 29, 2008
I didn't bother making it into a ball. We just ate it as a dip. This was really good with graham crackers, but even better with pretzels. Thanks!

Healing Cabbage Soup

Reviewed: Sep. 30, 2007
I tried making this with two fresh tomatoes that I needed to use up and it was really bland, so I ended up adding a can of stewed tomatoes. It was delicious. I also like this soup with a bit of vinegar or sauerkraut and some caraway seeds. It's also great with a can of pork and beans, but I admit that these versions are not for everyone. My husband won't touch them.
