Baked Slow Cooker Chicken

Reviewed: Jan. 24, 2011
Pretty tasty and delicious! I used drumsticks because I was shorter on time and they came out nicely. I used the entire can of chicken broth on the bottom with the potatoes and carrots and onion and after seasoning the drum sticks I just placed them on top and left them alone for hours. The veggies came out really well also. I only give it 4 because it seems like a 'BASE' recipe that a number of modifications could really give some pizazz to. I will definitely do again, perhaps, this time with curry!

Macaroni and Sweet Cheese

Reviewed: Jan. 16, 2011
Its not your ordinary mac'n'cheese! Its meant to be sweet! Didn't sound so appealing to me until I tried it and now it will be a nice change up from the more traditional recipe! Since it tastes just like I remember, I give it 5 stars for yummy sweetness!

Fluffy Pancakes

Reviewed: Jan. 16, 2011
I followed the recipe and used the advice of a few others: let it sit about 5 - 8 minutes and expect it to be super thick batter that you scoop not poor ( i scooped it onto the pan and spread it a little). It was a delicious restaurant style pancake! Sweet enough to eat without syrup. I'm making them again tomorrow and I will probably NEVER go back to box mix. This is so much cheaper! I had everything already! thanks a bunch! (also will try a drop of vanilla extract as a suggestion offered, but would be pleased without it!)

White Chocolate Macadamia Nut Cookies III

Reviewed: Jan. 14, 2011
Will try this recipe one more time. I've never made cookies from scratch before so I don't know if I didn't "cream" the butter sugar mix enough...but I think it could be better. Hubby enjoyed the cookies with no hesitation though.

Eggplant -- Easy, Good and Tasty

Reviewed: Jan. 14, 2011
I LOVED THIS. I followed the recipe exactly and LOVED it. My husband claims he will NEVER eat eggplant but i sliced the egg plant as suggested and covered a few slices with havarti cheese after it was almost done (because we happened to have some) and he was begging me to make it again (he didn't know it was eggplant though, until days later...haha)

Mom's Coleslaw

Reviewed: Nov. 14, 2010
I was looking for an easy & quick prep recipe since I had some left over cabbage set aside. I guess I didn't pay close enough attention to the part about this family favorite being from a Pennsylvania cook! This slaw tastes nothing like most southern coleslaw recipes that I'm more familiar with, but I was actually quite pleased with the flavor! My husband said it tastes like the KFC recipe and that's the only commercial slaw I prefer! I loved the sweet/tangy flavor and gave it a 4 because I think its worth making a few times to figure out if yours is too soupy or watery the way others describe...I'm so used to the mayo-filled southern style salad, that the soupiness caught me a little by surprise. I will make again though!

Awesome Slow Cooker Pot Roast

Reviewed: Jan. 24, 2010
If Im going to make pot roast, this is definitely how i will make it. its 2am and im just turning off my crockpot and WOW. It turned out amazing. took everything in me not to pull up a chair and dig in! I seared mine after a light seasoning as suggested of salt pepper and basil. i stuff it with cloves of garlic, covered it in flour and browned all sides before placing in the c.p. last time i made this i followed the recipe exactly and this time was MUCH more flavorfull and delicious.

Homestyle Turkey, the Michigander Way

Reviewed: Nov. 27, 2009
Move over ladies, I'm jumpin on the band wagon! Thanks to this recipe I'm a turkey roastin' pro. My father was skeptical about me hosting Thanksgiving this year and he cracked TONS of turkey disaster jokes all week. But yesterday he had nothing to say except "pass me just a little bit more turkey please" and he said this about 4 times. JUICY, TENDER, FLAVORFUL, and lovely.... Here's what I did: After washing it, and brining (kosher salt/brown sugar mix for 6 hours), I was GENEROUS with the buttering. I mixed rosemary, basil, and thyme with a stick of soft butter and then shoved most of it under the skin, all on top and around the breast area. TRUST ME if i can do this so can you. It was practically comical and i'm glad no one was watching because I didn' t have a clue! I used any remainder of the butter mix and rubbed it all over the outside of the bird. I didn't have any poultry seasoning so i used oregano, italian seasoning mix, a small layer of salt and pepper and sage, along with the minced onions. I had a 16 pound bird so 4 full hours of roasting with foil and 5 minutes broiling for the browning of the bird. I never once opened the oven during the entire 4 hours. Because it was COVERED, it was extremely juicy and made a LOT of broth which i removed just before broiling it. Best turkey i've tasted!

Tasty Collard Greens

Reviewed: Nov. 27, 2009
I knew this would be good because it was similar to a family recipe I used years back so I was REALLY pleased with it. I followed the recipe and used 2 smoked turkey necks. I think the smoked turkey and broth were PLENTY for the seasoning so I won't add more than a pinch of salt next time. I used two bags of Glory pre-washed/pre-cut collards and I this was the perfect amount for us. My brother in law told me that he had never had collards and decided he didn't like them until he tasted mine today as apart of his left-overs from turkey-day. He said he's now mad that he didn't have any on thanksgiving because he loved them! So did I and I grew up on my grandmother's greens!

Four Cheese Macaroni

Reviewed: Nov. 27, 2009
I was nervous about the eggs since everyone went on and on about avoiding them. But if you like southern style mac and cheese, you will keep all of the ingredients as suggested and add more cheese if you like. Without the egg, I'm guessing you get a creamy (soupier) result like the picture on a velveeta box. But I followed the recipe to the T and Everyone liked it! I think if I had made smaller cubes of the processed velveeta I could have spread this out more evenly. I will definitely make again and will definitely keep all of the ingredients and perhaps try a bit more cheese as suggested by others. this was deeelish!

Carrot Souffle

Reviewed: Nov. 27, 2009
10 stars, hands down, this is the BEST carrot souffle recipe. FOLLOW the advice of others and mix the extract and sugar (brown and white) one day ahead of time so the flavor will soak in. --Boiled my carrots for an hour, used my blender/food processor for grinding the carrots, and then mixed in the rest. (saving the butter & powders for the next day) ---This was so good, no one was even interested in my sweet potato pies because they were going on and on about this dish!

Fruity Curry Chicken Salad

Reviewed: Nov. 27, 2009
My mother in law is carribbean and really enjoyed this curry chicken salad. She makes curry all the time so if she liked it, I could feel good about it. But it was absolutely delicious. I included everything that the recipe asked for and will definitely make again.

Awesome Broccoli-Cheese Casserole

Reviewed: Nov. 27, 2009
I included this in my Thanksgiving day menu of things i've NEVER made before. I hosted with my husband for the first time and this was a huge hit! I actually DOUBLED the ingredients and used the advice of others which included half may half sour cream, and crumbled cracker topping with melted butter on top. EVERYONE loved it and its almost gone just one day later.

Oven Brown Rice

Reviewed: Oct. 11, 2009
The last time I made brown rice was several years back due to the experience of eating what felt like small pebbles...This was abolutely the BEST brown rice i've ever had. It was definitely buttery, but DELICIOUS. Will plan for a weekly addition to replace white rice. (Note to self: cook 1.5 hrs and covered)

Peanut Butter Vegetable Chicken Soup

Reviewed: Sep. 27, 2009
After reading several reviews, I was comfortable just using whatever frozen veggies I had: stir fry peppers and onions, brocolli and carrots. Like others I seasoned and sauteed my chicken with the stirfry veggies ahead of time and I didn't have any canned tomatoes so I left that out. The only other modification I did was adding coconut milk at the end and red peppers which really gave it a nice kick. Next time i'll replace the brocolli with mushrooms since it resembles tai coconut soup a little....wondering if I should have used a bit more peanut butter for a slightly sweeter taste. I trimmed it back as others suggested....
