Quick and Easy Home Fries

Reviewed: Dec. 12, 2012
Home fries are one of those "simple" recipes that are oh so hard to replicate at home. The only changes I made were using 1 1/2 tbsp butter and 1 1/2 tbsp oil (I've used both vegetable and olive oil, both work fine) per others suggestions and using Johnny's Seasoning Salt. I like the blend of seasonings in it. These potatoes came out crispy, yet moist. Great base recipe.

Kyle's Favorite Beef Stew

Reviewed: Dec. 11, 2012
I usually try to make a recipe exactly as stated, then with my own tweaks before making a review, but for this recipe it wasn't the case. I had all the ingredients on hand except for the wine and mushrooms (with the addition of celery that needed to be used), so I thought this was the base recipe for me. It turned out very bland. I ended up going to the store for the McCormick beef stew spice blend, while also adding some tomato paste, soy sauce and seasoning salt towards the end. I give this two stars for the cooking method, but the flavoring wasn't right for us personally.

Minestrone Soup I

Reviewed: Dec. 6, 2012
This was really good and simple. The only changes I made was using half homemade stock (it needed to be used up), no cabbage (picky eaters), and ditalini pasta per another users suggestions. This was really good. Even our picky eaters had a big bowl. It has a nice tomato flavor, but not enough to turn off anyone who doesn't like tomatoes. Good stuff. Added a bit of Italian seasoning while the pasta was cooking in the soup for a little added flavor, but that was purely personal preference.

Banana Muffins II

Reviewed: Nov. 18, 2012
These were fantastic! Followed the recipe exactly except I added an additional banana and some chopped walnuts. (I did not factor that into my score; these were personal preferences as I needed to use up all of the bananas I had because they were on their way out). These were so moist and the flavor intensified the next day. My boyfriend brought them to work and his co-worker's loved them, even asked for my. Mine came out a little stickier looking than in the photos, but I think that was because I used that extra banana. Will definitely make again.

Juicy Roasted Chicken

Reviewed: Nov. 18, 2012
Although very juicy, I thought that this was kind of bland. The bird just didn't soak up any flavor from the seasonings or butter. We ended making a quick gravy to go over it for some saltiness. I will say that this chicken did soak up flavor very well when I used up the leftovers in a chicken noodle soup recipe. We also had to cook our bird about 45 minutes longer than stated. A good base recipe to play around with the seasoning.

Quick and Easy Chicken Noodle Soup

Reviewed: Nov. 15, 2012
I really liked this recipe because it was a good base to take your soup in whatever flavor direction that you like. I had homemade chicken stock that needed to be used, so I used a combination of that and store bought veggie stock. Followed directions almost exactly, but sauteed up the carrots with the other veggies with some minced garlic that also needed to be used up. Other than that didn't change a thing except for the herb/salt amounts to our preference. The results tasted like I had been making it all day. Great recipe.

Mexican Rice II

Reviewed: Sep. 13, 2011
Love this recipe!! I make it almost exactly as written, with just a few changes to my liking ( I have made it as written too, just as good). The only things I do differently are: 1) instead of tomato sauce, I puree a can of mexican stewed tomatoes and use a full cup of that and 1 1/2 cups of chicken broth, 2) After the rice is done cooking in the pot, I will throw it in a skillet pan and toast it up a bit. So delicious!

Colleen's Slow Cooker Jambalaya

Reviewed: Jul. 26, 2010
Wow this was great! The only changes I made were that I did not add the cayenne pepper (my personal preference) and we halved the recipe. I thought it had great flavor and a nice kick from the andouille and spices in the cajun seasoning. Next time maybe I would add the veggies in a little closer to serving time for more of a crunchier texture, but again thats just personal preference. Delish over rice, and great the next day. Definitely try this one!

Oven Baked BBQ Ribs

Reviewed: Apr. 4, 2010
So good! We only had 3lbs pork spareribs, but followed the recipe almost exactly, only adding a couple dashes of garlic and chili powders, and a splash of soy sauce. It only took the ribs about 2 hr 15 min to cook. We basted & flipped them every 45 mins, and covered with foil like others suggested. These came out so tender, the meat came right off the bone! There was so much flavor in these ribs. This one is definitely a keeper.

Grilled Shrimp Scampi

Reviewed: Mar. 17, 2010
So good and easy! We needed a quick and easy meal to keep us from ordering pizza and this did the trick! I pretty much followed the recipe exactly; the only things different were that I didn't have fresh parsley, so I used dry, and we cooked them up in a pan. Again so easy! Boiled up a little linguine pasta, mixed it up in the pan with the cooked shrimp and marinade, added a little butter and parm....YUM!! I will def be making this recipe again!

Slow Cooker Chicken Taco Soup

Reviewed: Dec. 11, 2009
We really loved this soup! Ours actually came out more like a chili consistency, but I'm not saying that as a bad thing. Since we were really wanting that soup consistency, we froze half, and added more chicken stock to the half we planned to eat. Amazing flavor!! The corn stayed crunchy, the beans were not mushy at all, and the chicken had a great flavor. Delicious! The only changes we made were: Chicken stock instead of beer per others' suggestions Cooked onion before putting in crockpot per others' suggestions 1 can tomatoes and chilies & 1 can fire roasted tomatoes 2 chicken breasts (there are only 2 of us)

Easy Slow Cooker French Dip

Reviewed: Aug. 23, 2009
We thought this was really good. We followed the recipe exactly since it was our first time making any kind of french dip. It made quite a bit for just us two, definitely had leftovers for another nights dinner. The only changes we would make next time is to add some more spices, and to add some fresh onions to give it more of that onion taste. Very versitile recipe.
