Laura's Quick Slow Cooker Turkey Chili

Reviewed: Oct. 27, 2010
So so so good. I subbed the tomato soup for crushed tomatoes because I like the texture (chunky) much better. I didn't have allspice so I omitted that. I cooked the ground turkey with the onions. BEST CHILI EVER!

BBQ Pork for Sandwiches

Reviewed: Sep. 2, 2010
I misread someone elses review and decided to add BOTH a can of cola and a can of beef broth. Fate? I think so. Taste was exquisite. I put the cola, broth, and pork BUTT in the slow cooker and set it at 6 hours on high. Meat fell off the bone VERY easily. After shredding the meat (and removing the bone), I added the bottle of BBQ sauce (sweet baby rays). Set it the low @ 12 hours setting...WITHOUT the lid (until the sauce thickens). After it thickened...BAM!!! Yummy goodness! Thank you for the suggestions and recipe!

The Best Thai Coconut Soup

Reviewed: Jul. 21, 2010
This is better than restaurant quality. No FRESH ginger available so I used powder instead (about 1 tablespoon in powder form). I had to add double the curry paste (only because it was not spicy to me, and I like that extra kick). I also added 1 thai chili pepper, chopped. Lastly, added chopped green onions (about 1 stalk). No salt and pepper needed. This was FANTASTIC!

Strawberry Jam

Reviewed: Jul. 4, 2010
A little too sweet for me and kinda runny. I added cornstarch to thicken it up a bit...turned out great! Will add a LOT less sugar next time.

Apple Strudel Muffins

Reviewed: Jun. 28, 2010
Fantastic recipe. With a few tweaks here and there, and a dash of allspice, this turned out to be a real winner! It didn't really "rise" and fluff out like I thought it would though. I filled the tins 3/4 of the way and it only filled up to the top of the tin. Love the taste!

Brown Sugar Meatloaf

Reviewed: Jun. 11, 2010
A little bit too sweet for my taste...but it was still savory. Next time I'll use a lesser fat content beef. I found that the regular ground beef I buy apparently made the meatloaf a bit "too greasy."

Pineapple Chicken Tenders

Reviewed: Jun. 10, 2010
The sauce really is SO GOOD. It's got the whole salty, sweet, and a hint of sour going for it. Needless to say, this is an absolute winner. I skewered the chicken with chunks of pineapple and it seemed to give it more of a tang to it.

Feta and Olive Meatballs

Reviewed: Jun. 10, 2010
I especially like this recipe. It works so, so well with ground lamb! I tried the original version and found that my alterations did the trick for me: used blue cheese crumbs instead...green olives...added 3/4 cup-1 cup bread crumbs that have italian seasoning already...added basil (fresh)...added a few garlic cloves. The mixture seems meticulous but worked out well for me. I liked both versions, thanks for the recipe!

Slow Cooker Chicken Taco Soup

Reviewed: May 4, 2010
Made the soup with very few alterations---I used beef broth instead of the beer (because that's all I had) and replaced 1 can of diced tomatoes with fresh diced tomatoes. I thought the chicken was a little bit dry considering it was covered in saucy deliciousness (the soup is pretty good) but that's the only negative to this dish. Next time I'll use ground beef instead. The sour cream addition does WONDERS, so much tastier! I didn't give it a full 5 stars because of the dry chicken.

Marbled Pumpkin Cheesecake

Reviewed: May 3, 2010
Turned out beautiful but didn't really taste like a cheesecake to me. More like pumpkin pie...with a twist of cream cheese.

Bob's Awesome Lasagna

Reviewed: May 3, 2010
Added the spinach like another reviewer stated as well as an egg to the cottage cheese mixture. Mixed the cheese up a bit with mozzarella and mexican cheese. Added an additional diced up roma tomato and chopped basil leaves as well. I found that the cottage cheese mixture was too little, only enough for 2 1/3 layers...tasted like ordinary lasagna to me.

Super-Simple, Super-Spicy Mongolian Beef

Reviewed: May 3, 2010
I guess I'm just used to the Chinese restaurant version of Mongolian beef...a thick sauce and a little more on the sweet side. Upon making this it really didn't resemble that Mongolian beef I knew at all. I altered it by adding about 1/2 cup of brown sugar and a tablespoon or two of flour to thicken up the sauce. That worked wonderfully. Add some siracha sauce to that and BAM---spicy!

Chocolate Strawberries

Reviewed: Apr. 18, 2010
I used a bar of ghirardelli square chocolates (82% cacao) and half a bar of hershey's dark chocolate (the large kind). did NOT dip them, rather spooned melted chocolate on top of them and laid them down on plastic wrap. how did i melt them? boiled a small pot of water and placed another metal bowl on top of that while stirring with a spatula...after spooning chocolate on the strawberries and laying it down on the plastic wrapped cookie sheet pan, i popped it in the fridge. PERFECT! it made a dozen chocolate covered strawberries :)

Best Steak Marinade in Existence

Reviewed: Dec. 23, 2009
Used lemon juice from concentrate. Everything else--followed exactly up to par. I *did* use ground red pepper instead of white. And I also added just 1/2 tsp of ginger for that extra kick :) DELICIOUS!

Watergate Salad

Reviewed: Nov. 25, 2009
Like others, I used an entire 20oz of crushed pineapple, but I reserved a 1/2 a cup of pineapple juice first, then just dumped the rest in. I didn't use walnuts---pecans instead. And I used the whole 8oz of whipped cream. Yum!

Teriyaki Marinated Chicken

Reviewed: Nov. 9, 2009
This was alright. The marinade was extremely tasty but I guess it didn't soak that well with the chicken because the chicken wasn't that flavorful as the marinade. I might try and leave in a lot longer than one day next time.

Apple Crisp III

Reviewed: Nov. 8, 2009
I used 5 large apples, increased the recipe for the topping by half, used 50/50 of brown and white sugar, added about a teaspoon of vanilla to the water mixture, and finally added about a 2 handfuls of golden raisins to the apples. I baked it in a 9x13 pan and cooked for about 52 minutes. Turned off the oven and left it in there until the oven cooled. Came out pretty good :)

Reviewed: Nov. 3, 2009
I know the recipe calls for 2 tablespoon of lime juice but instead of measuring I just used one lime.
