Amazing Pork Tenderloin in the Slow Cooker

Reviewed: Mar. 5, 2014
Great recipe! However, some changes are needed. I, too, found the tenderloin to be a bit too salty even though I replaced the regular with the reduced sodium soy sauce. Also, I used a 2011 Cabernet Sauvignon (never cook with something that you wouldn't drink, and cooking wines are just plain heinous), 2 frozen garlic cloves, and added a pack of fresh cremini mushrooms, two small pinches of rubbed sage and thyme, 3 lbs. of tenderloin along with the rest of the listed ingredients in a 5 qt. cooker on low for six hours. The house smelled amazing, and the juices were extemely flavorful. Also, I placed the meat on a dish to rest. Strained the liquid and placed it in a pot and added some cornstarch along with H20. I served the meat and gravy with mashed potatoes and grilled asparagus. Again, it was a tad bit salty for my taste even with the substition (I added a little sugar to the gravy about 2-3 pinches to help mash the salty taste). Next time I'll cut the reduced sodium soy sauce in half and maybe add worcestershire sauce.

Fluffy French Toast

Reviewed: Feb. 25, 2014
The reason I am giving this recipe five stars is that's tasty and healthy at the same time. I've been making a french toast recipe for years that is awesome, but it is loaded in fat and calories. I recently had my galbladder out, and that has made me re-evaluate what I eat. This recipe has less than 200 calories and has 2.7 grams of fat. This means that I can have one piece of bacon, piece of fruit, and this recipe and I am still under 400 calories and feel full. This recipe is a definite keeper!

Slow Roasted BBQ Beef Roast

Reviewed: Oct. 21, 2012
This recipe is the bomb! I made it with my Showtime rotisserie grill. It was done within 40 minutes (2.14 lbs). I let the meat sit for 30 minutes on the non-heat rotation. I then used an electric knife to carve it to very thin cuts of meat. It was wonderful, and my husband had seconds. He added some creamy horseradish and ate it like there was no tomorrow :-)

Roast Sticky Chicken-Rotisserie Style

Reviewed: Sep. 28, 2012
Absolutely fab!!! I bought my first rotisserie cooker (Ronco 3000), and made this recipe because of the high rating. I didn't have time to marinate the chicken due to being in a bind. I used half of the ingredients on one bird that weighs 5.15 lbs. I skipped stuffing the poultry with the onions, and put in the cooker for about 1.25 to 1.50 hrs. It turned out to be tender, juicy and with the best flavor that is superior to most rotisserie chicken that I have sampled! You can't go wrong with this recipe. It's a keeper!

Buttercream Icing

Reviewed: Feb. 15, 2011
This recipe is most excellent! This was the second recipe that I tried for my cake. The first icing really tasted like merinque, and it just didn't do it for me. However, this recipe is the bomb! It was 10 times easier than the other one that I had to cook on the stove. Also, this recipe can be modified to your personal tastes. I used 1 cup butter, 2 teaspoons vanilla, 2 1/2 cups of confectioners' sugar, and 1 tablespoon of 2% milk for my icing. It turned out great, and it coated two 9 inch cake pans with no room to spare. I can't write enough about how great, functional this recipe is!

Sausage Balls

Reviewed: Dec. 20, 2010
I have been making a variation of this recipe for about 15 years. I have found two things that might be quite helpful while making this appetizer. First, I like to use a basic sausage (the cheapest sausage from Wal-Mart (Jamestown Brand) is quite good, but you still can't go wrong with Jimmy Dean, etc (I have used various kinds but both are still good). Next, I mix the sausage and baking mix (Bisquick). I wet my hands with a little water, and it helps mix every thing together. Another trick I use sometimes is using a splash of worcestershire sause). I then add in the cheese (I use the generic finely grated sharp cheese in a bag) and mix every thing together. I like to cook the sausage at a higher temperature 425 degrees for about 10-15 minutes, because I like everything to be crispy. However, if you want your sausage balls cooked at a lower temperature, I would have to agree with some of the other reviewers that I would cook the balls longer than 350 for 10 minutes. The top and bottom of the sausage ball should be browned. Also, if you cut into the ball the inside should look fully cooked.

Rotisserie Chicken

Reviewed: Feb. 18, 2010
I was skeptical of this recipe when I tried it, but it turned out to be a great basic recipe. I would recommend binding the drumsticks and wings to keep them from overcooking, just as I did. I, also, put the chicken on a timer and basted it every 30 or so minutes while cooking. I cooked the chicken on high (450 degrees) for 10 minutes, and then cooked it at 350 degrees for about an hour and half (the skin had a rich, dark color, the meat had started retracting from the bone, and the internal temp had reached 180 degrees). The great thing about this recipe is how moist the chicken is. I usually make a chicken salad with any leftovers.

Ranch Dressing II

Reviewed: Feb. 8, 2010
I, like many, have been raised on Ranch salad dressing. My mother used to buy the bottles of Ranch when I was in school, and at some point she started making the stuff out of the packets sold at the grocery stores. I, too, have been buying the packets, and making my own salad dressing for years. I thought it was getting old, and not to mention expensive (those packets or jars add up). So, I thought I would look around for a Ranch mix, and I came across this recipe. This is a good version of Hidden Valley Ranch. It is a little bit on the milder side, so I do recommend using 1/2 cup mayo, 1/2 cup sour cream, and 1/2 cup of buttermilk (or you can substitute as an alternative 1/2 Tablespoon of white vinegar or lemon in bottom of 1/2 cup and fill milk to the top of container, and wait 5 minutes like I did). Also, I tweaked it a little by adding another 1/8 tsp of herbs, salt and pepper. I strongly suggest this recipe, because you can do so much with it. Also, it gets better over time!

Banana Sour Cream Bread

Reviewed: Sep. 2, 2009
I inherited a wonderful banana bread recipe from my grandmother when she passed away. I was practically brought up on that stuff. The smell of banana bread in the air always makes me feel warm and fuzzy inside. So, I was surfing around on here looking for different recipes for dinner and such. I came across this sour cream version, and I thought I would give it a shot. First off, this recipe is phenomenal! It has a great texture, it’s very moist, and also has a wonderful taste. It was very easy to make. Since there are only two people to my household, I divided the recipe by a fourth to accommodate only 8 servings (which equals one loaf). I also took into an account that the written instructions of the recipe are for the 32 servings (four loaves). So, I made the necessary changes to the written recipe format (1 tablespoon of sugar & ¼ ground tsp of cinnamon for dusting the pan. Also, ¾ cups of white sugar go into the mixture). As for dusting the pan, I didn’t use the full amount that was called for. I took a little bit in the palm of my hand, and just lightly sprinkled it on the greased pan. I placed the finished mixture in a Stoneware Loaf Pan and cooked it at 300 degrees for about an hour. It was delicious!
