Awesome Slow Cooker Pot Roast

Reviewed: Jan. 1, 2009
I only had one can of cream of mushroom on hand, so I used the empty soup can, and substituted beef broth. Added rosemary, a touch of merlot, cracked peppercorns, cut back on the dry onion soup mix to use real onions, parsley, and garlic...cooked on medium, for 9hrs. It was fantastic!

Magic Peanut Butter Middles

Reviewed: Dec. 29, 2008
great flavor, but a bit dry...I don't know how to fix that. I followed the recipe to the letter, and only baked the cookies for 7min. I think I would bake them for even less time if I made them again. It's hard to say when every oven is different. Watch them carefully, and I am sure you will get a great cookie!

Kielbasa Pasta Casserole

Reviewed: Dec. 26, 2008
Of course I changed this recipe to coordinate with what I had in the house, and my experience as a personal chef...Reduce (Rigatoni) pasta to 3/4 lb. 1. I used beef polish sausage, and fried it sans the vegetable oil (it has it's own fat to fry in) 3. I then added to the sausage 1 clove of garlic, small onion (chopped finely), small amt. of pepper for taste, parsley, pinch of crushed red pepper and cooked for 5min. I then added 1 jar of spaghetti sauce plus 1 4oz can tomato sauce, and brought to a slight boil...at which time I added 10 small frozen meatballs. Simmered for 15min stirring often. Cut the meatballs in half, and mixed with pasta in 8 by 11 glass . I added a dusting of italian style breadcrumbs, a sprinkling of cheese, and topped with italian pepperoni. Cooked uncovered for 25 min checking often to ensure that it did not dry out. There were no leftovers, and that is saying something in this family. This is an excellent starter recipe. Tweak it to your liking!

Heavenly White Cake

Reviewed: Dec. 20, 2008
This cake is a pain. I made it twice...Once as stated, and it was dry, dry, dry. Tossed it in the garbage, and took the other reviewers advice...added a 1/2 c of milk. The flavor is not the problem...it is flat. I would not use the pan size that is recommended unless you like flat cakes. Use a smaller pan size, or stick to the rounds, and stack. 1st time, my fault...second time, recipe's fault..sorry.

Mint Buttercream Frosting With Dark Chocolate Glaze

Reviewed: Dec. 16, 2008
I have made a recipe similar to this one for many years, but I have not made this one...so these are just some suggestions. The milk is not necessary. Use real butter only. Add the mint extract a little bit at a time until it is to your liking, as it can be very strong. I don't use unsweetened chocolate for the glaze. Milk chocolate works well. Don't forget the green food coloring!

Spicy Beef Curry Stew for the Slow Cooker

Reviewed: Nov. 17, 2008
Make sure you buy a tender cut of meat, or tenderize prior to cooking. I made this recipe as stated, and the beef was very tough.

Burrito Pie

Reviewed: Nov. 11, 2008
This was way salty, but it is not the recipes fault...I made the recipe as stated, but followed the advice of other reviewers who reccommended the taco seasoning. Do not use taco seasoning...it is far too salty. There is several recipes on here that tell you how to mix your own spices for taco seasoning, and it allows you to have control over the season that you are adding. I would ammend the recipe as follows: I believe this is best made in 2 deep pie pans as other reviewers have stated. Double the tortilla's, it will hold up better. Do not mix the ingrediants all into one big glob, spread the beans on the tortilla's as others have reccommended. Spray pie pans, and use the tortilla as the bottom layer, it get's nice and crispy. Skip the taco sauce...slimeville. Serve it on the side. Cook the ground beef, onion, chili's and all the other spices to allow for flavor melding.

Uglies

Reviewed: Nov. 11, 2008
Maybe it was the bbq sauce that I used, but these were not good. I think it is a great concept though. You can really use any seasoning for the beef...but I would definately reccommend finding a substitute for the bbq sauce.

Mouse's Macaroni and Cheese

Reviewed: Nov. 11, 2008
Really good, but the other reviewers were right...too much cheese. I am not a fan of processed cheeses. They are usually more expensive than real cheese, and the texture tends to be a bit like glue. I used less cheese, that was a sharp cheddar/colby mix.

Restaurant-Style Buffalo Chicken Wings

Reviewed: Nov. 8, 2008
This recipe is the best chicken wing recipe I have ever used. Didn't change anything seasoning wise. I always let my chicken wings set in a equal parts solution of cider vinegar and water prior to flouring. I then place them in a big plastic bag to ensure that the flour mixture will coat each individual wing. Must be in fridge for 90 min prior to cooking for best results. I use shortening when cooking these because they did not come out as good with regular vegetable oil. Yummmm....

Chicken Tikka Masala

Reviewed: Jun. 20, 2007
This was so delicious...I made the following changes: 1/2 tsp salt only in sauce, not in marinade.. Skipped out on all the spices, and used Patak's Garam Masala (2TBS) in marinade, and half the cayenne. Stuck the ginger in the food processer, and let it sit for 2 hours. Used a primo basmati rice, expensive, but well worth it. Used 3 cloves of garlic, and 1 tsp of paprika (no jalepeno) Used the Foreman grill to cook up the chicken too! Double the sauce though!!! Took rad Naan recipe off this site, and there was nothing left!! yum

Reviewed: Jun. 13, 2007
Yum! I made a few changes...Using cream of chicken instead of mushroom...fried up the onions with a a couple cloves of minced fresh garlic..cooked it for double the time, all the while adding low sodium chicken broth. Added sour cream at the end...My hubby loved it, and he's picky!

Chili For Two

Reviewed: Jun. 7, 2007
I made this as followed initially...then I got a taste. It was all tomato, and no action. I added cinnamon, more cumin, and chili powder than it called for...bbq sauce, a touch of beef boulion, and garlic powder. I wont use this recipe again.

Chicken-Fried Steak Strips

Reviewed: Jun. 5, 2007
I'm sorry, but this was really bland, greasy, and a mess to make...A whole lot of work for a pretty uneventful ending.

Ranch-Style Thighs

Reviewed: Jun. 5, 2007
This recipe was super yummy! I had to change a few things because I didn't have the exact recipe in the cupboard...I used ceasar dressing, instead of ranch..and parmasan bread crumbs instead of regular bread crumbs mixed with parmasan. It was moist, and delicious!
