Slow Cooker Kalua Pork

Reviewed: Jul. 20, 2013
I was skeptical, but it turned out so good! Only used half of the mixed marinade and used a bone-in pork butt. Very, very tasty! Try it!

Black Bean Cigars

Reviewed: Apr. 15, 2013
We thought it was pretty good. I used about half of a standard can of diced tomatoes instead of the fresh tomato (didn't have one on hand) and I think I may reduce the sour cream next time to 1/2-3/4 cup and increase the potato rounds a bit. I also rough chopped the rounds instead of mashing. I couldn't fit 12 in the pan, so I had quite a bit of filling left over. I put it in a small pyrex dish and baked it along with the "cigars" -- it makes a wonderful dip for chips and veggies! My girls liked them and I'll make them again. I like the idea of putting the dish under the broiler for a few minutes at the end, as well as the idea to add some corn.

German Pork Chops and Sauerkraut

Reviewed: Mar. 22, 2013
My family found this dish to be delicious! A few minor changes -- I halved the recipe (but still used a full apple, actually about an apple and a half), used pure maple syrup instead of brown sugar, one 14 oz can of sauerkraut, and only used 1 tsp of caraway seeds. Oh my - so good! The sauce is wonderful. Definitely a keeper.

Peking Pork Chops

Reviewed: Oct. 5, 2012
I've made this twice now and while I follow the ingredient list as written, I bake it in the oven, covered in foil. It comes out tasting wonderful. We don't find it salty (we use low-sodium soy sauce and I don't add any additional salt)-- maybe sitting and cooking in the crockpot makes it saltier? I don't brown the chops, either. Just put some onion slices in the bottom of the pan (ok, so I add that to the list of ingredients), throw in the chops, mix up the sauce and pour it on. Cover with foil and bake at 350* till done. Yum!

Western Skillet

Reviewed: Oct. 2, 2012
Ok, so I made some changes, but I think the recipe is great for doing just that -- making alterations and still coming out ok. My changes? I used 1.25lb ground turkey instead of beef, a can of diced tomatoes instead of stewed, taco seasoning instead of onion soup mix, and fresh corn instead of peas. :) So yeah, I agree, almost an entirely different dish. I wish I had gone with my instinct tho and cut the rice back to at most 1 cup. The meat to rice ratio was off and yes, this makes A TON! We ate it as taco filling or scooped it up with tortilla chips. I froze almost half of it after we finished eating (2 adults, 2 kids), I packed hubby's lunch and I had the rest for lunch. I think when I make it again, I'll for sure cut back on the rice (water too then, of course) and maybe add a 2nd can of tomatoes. I used a homemade taco seasoning and I may add more of that as well. Give it a try and make it your own! Thanks for the jumping board recipe, Carol!

Homestyle Kalua Pork with Cabbage in a Slow Cooker

Reviewed: Jun. 3, 2012
I followed the recipe, but added 1/2-1 cup of chicken broth and discovered that was totally unnecessary as it was a little soupy. It was still delicious, but I, too, would cut the salt down a little next time (I also used low sodium soy sauce). The next night I reheated some (it makes A LOT!) of the meat in a pan so it got a little crispy and made burritos. Super yummy!

Chili Beef Bake

Reviewed: Apr. 18, 2012
We liked this ok, but I realize I made a fair amount of changes, so no sure how to rate it. I halved the recipe and used ground turkey instead of ground beef, corn tortillas instead of flour, shredded colby-jack cheese, and I mixed the beans with the meat. I also added a little cumin to the meat as well as maybe 3/4 cup of frozen corn for color. Oh, and I didn't have tomatoes with chilies, so I just used diced tomatoes. It was good, tho! Thanks for the starting point!

Whole Wheat Blueberry Beet Muffins

Reviewed: Apr. 17, 2012
Very good muffins! I used a 50/50 mix of AP and WW flour and doubled the blueberries. It made 24 regular sized muffins and 20 minis. We couldn't taste the beets at all. Whole family loved them!

Kielbasa with Brussels Sprouts

Reviewed: Apr. 12, 2012
This was really good! I sub'd butter for the oil and added a little water (less than 1/4 cup) to help steam the brussel sprouts (I put the lid on for a few minutes). It was delicious served over couscous!

Cabbage Roll Casserole

Reviewed: Feb. 29, 2012
I've made this a few times now and it's always so yummy! I recommend shredding or slicing the cabbage thinly and I think Napa cabbage, with it's lighter flavor, is a little better in this dish. I've never used 2lbs of beef - generally no more than 1.5lbs. Also, I've found it much easier to cook the onions and salt with the beef, then mix in the rice and most of the tomato sauce. Layer the cabbage on the bottom of the baking dish and top with the beef mixture. I then mix the remaining tomato sauce with one can of beef broth and pour it on top, followed by the 2nd can of broth. Mix well after the first hour as directed -- the cabbage will have cooked down a lot so it's much easier. Try it tonight!

Lime Chicken Soft Tacos

Reviewed: Feb. 8, 2012
We thought it was pretty good. Chicken didn't dry out, but I cut them into rather large chunks initially and broke them smaller as it cooked. The only changes I made was to leave out the sugar as it didn't seem necessary and sprinkled on some ground cumin - maybe 1/4 tsp?) I also ended up using almost a whole lime's worth of juice (about 1/4 cup). I'll make it again - yum!

Chicken Enchilada Slow Cooker Soup

Reviewed: Jan. 3, 2012
Very tasty and, like all slow cooker recipes, very easy, too. Only made a few minor changes due to what I had on hand. Omitted the diced green chilies, cilantro, and was out of onion, so I used about 1 T of dried onions instead. I also threw in a small can of sliced olives at the end (drained). Yum!

No-Noodle Zucchini Lasagna

Reviewed: Sep. 13, 2011
Pretty good! I used about 2.5 large zucchinis, sub'd ground turkey for the ground beef, and just used a jar of sauce. Prep was longer than expected. I didn't really salt the zucchini slices and had lots of extra liquid, but I wonder if sauteing the mushrooms beforehand would help? I ended up scooping out the liquid to a bowl then sopping it up with slices of bread. Yum! I'll probably make this again.

Spam™ and Napa Cabbage

Reviewed: Apr. 21, 2011
OMG - I am so glad I tried this! I did make a few minor changes -- I only bought the small 7oz can of Spam, so I diced and cooked 1 chicken breast with the Spam to make up the difference. I also threw in a thinly sliced leek (using up veg from my CSA box), only cut up half of my enormous Napa cabbage (should have used the whole thing), and I only added about 1.5 T of low sodium soy sauce. Oh, and I put quartered grape tomatoes on top of each serving. SO YUMMY! I, too, served over rice and will definitely be making this again!

Blueberry Zucchini Bread

Reviewed: Jun. 29, 2010
YUMMY! Made this with my 4 year old and so far, everyone in the house loves it. Only change I made was to use 1/2 cup unsweetened applesauce and 1/2 cup canola oil in place of the 1 cup oil. Well, probably used a little more than 2 cups of shredded zucchini and a little over 2 cups of fresh blueberries. We made 12 muffins (baked about 30 min) and 1 regular sized loaf (baked about 80 min). Perfection!

Roast Pork with Maple and Mustard Glaze

Reviewed: Apr. 13, 2010
This was very good! I cooked it in the crock pot on low for about 8 hours and it was wonderful! I didn't have dijon mustard, so instead used about 1T of Coleman's English mustard. Hubby was a little upset I used so much of our pure Vermont maple syrup, but we buy it by the half gallon, so it didn't use too much of our stock. I think the final flavor more than made up for it. Delish!!

Spanish Chicken

Reviewed: Apr. 13, 2010
This was really good! I followed the recipe, but sub'd red bell for the green (used about 3/4 of a large pepper) and didn't measure the salsa (just used plain mild) and it was great! We liked the cinnamon and it smelled very yummy.

Mushroom Rice Pilaf

Reviewed: Mar. 29, 2010
Yum! Doubled the recipe, but omitted the green bell pepper (didn't have any and not sure it would fit in anyway). Other than that, followed the recipe as written. Oh, my rice was short grain, instead of long grain. Made it almost like a risotto. Delicious!

Baby Carrots 'n' Broccoli

Reviewed: Mar. 29, 2010
Hard to rate since I, too, didn't have the exact seasonings, but I followed the method of the recipe and it was good. I didn't have baby carrots, so I just peeled and cut regular ones down to baby carrot size and boiled for 5 min. I used a drizzle of oil and about a teaspoon of Seasoned Salt, as well as a sprinkling of black pepper. Baked for a total of about 15 min to get the broccoli firm-tender. It was good! My husband and daughters liked it, too!
