Amazing Pork Tenderloin in the Slow Cooker

Reviewed: Sep. 25, 2007
The name really suits this-it is amazing!Amazingly easy and delicious! When I found this recipe, I knew it was a great base to start with...and after reading many reviews I decided to make some additions and substitions. First, I seasoned the loin with pepper, onion powder, garlic powder,bay, rosemary and thyme. Then I seared it on all sides before putting it in the crock pot with 3/4 cup Malbec, 1/2 c. h2o, 1/2 c. reduced sodium chicken stock, 1/2 of a package onion soup mix, 1/2 sliced onion, 2tbls. soy sauce, and more of the herbs that I seasoned the pork with. I cooked it on low for 5 hours...the pork shredded beautifully, and I drained the juices from the crock pot into a sauce pan, brought to a boil and added 1 tbls. cornstarch and made a delicious gravy...served with steamed broccoli and mashed baby red potatoes...this earned raves from my hubby and even my 2 year old (who never eats, I swear she is going to waste away to nothing) ate it up happily!!! Will DEFINATELY make this again!! Thanks llau!!

Creamy White Layers

Reviewed: Sep. 16, 2007
I made a VERY similar version of this cake for my daughter's 2nd birthday...I compared this recipe with the one on the Wilton's website- same ingredients, different measurements...tastes great, a little heavy though, but that makes this cake perfect for tiers and fillings...used the special butter cream frosting from this website...HUGE HIT!!! Everyone was asking me where we bought the cake!!

Special Buttercream Frosting

Reviewed: Sep. 16, 2007
Awesome!! Really easy, MUCH easier than other white frostings i've made-the shortening makes it more stable than butter...I did use 1/2 butter, 1/2 shortening, but made no other changes- made a castle cake for my daughter's 2nd birthday...was a HUGE hit...People asked me where we bought the delicious cake! I am making another cake for a friend towmorrow...will be making another batch of this for sure!! Thanks so much for this recipe!!

Mixed Berry Trifle

Reviewed: Sep. 7, 2007
This is so yummy! I made a few changes though...I didn't have cream sherry, so I omitted it, and I added some roughly chopped walnuts in the layers on top of the toasted coconut...it was so good, I have made it a couple of times...it is easy, quick, looks (and tastes) good.

Kathy's Delicious Whole Slow Cooker Chicken

Reviewed: Jul. 7, 2007
This is very good. However, I am giving it 4 stars instead of 5 for 2 reasons-1)8 hours is WAY too long!! My chicken was 3.73 lbs. and was done (on low) with 3 hours to spare...2) I doubled the sauce (except for the olive oil...I left that at 1/3 cup)-next time I will triple it because the sauce only covered 1/2 the chicken, so after a few hours the top half of the chicken was white as can be (and TOTALLY unappetizing {sp?} looking)and the breast side had soaked up alot of sauce and looked yummy- I flipped it, but like I said-I'll make enough sauce next time to cover the chicken- or will be sure to baste it throughout the cooking process. Other than that, It is tasty and tender! Will make again!

Roasted Lemon Herb Chicken

Reviewed: Jul. 2, 2007
This was good...the only thing is that I had a 3 lb. chicken, and I had to make more of the dry seasoning-when I mixed all of the dry ingredients together to put them on the chicken, there was not enough. Also, instead of basting with just olive oil and lemon juice, I used olive oil,lemon juice, lime juice, oj, and fresh garlic...will definatley make again!

Fried Rice with Cilantro

Reviewed: Jun. 12, 2007
This was delicious! Instead of using chicken, I put a ton of veggies in it and served it with the candied garlic wings from this site...it was a huge hit... I did use a little sesame oil in the rice, and to those with sticky rice issues-jasmine rice is stickier than normal rice, put a little olive oil in the water that you cook the rice in...this usually helps me.

Candied Garlic Chicken Wings

Reviewed: Jun. 12, 2007
These were AWESOME!! This is definately something that I will be making again! I doubled the recipe because I had 4 lbs. of wings, and I had a ton of marinade, so I will keep that in mind for next time. Also, I ran out of soy sauce, so I used a couple of tbls. of teryaki sauce. Turned out great! These wings were a hit with everyone! I served these with the cilantro fried rice recipe from this site (I put lots of veggies in it instead of chicken)Excellent dinner! EDIT- I just made these again last night, and was working from memory, and forgot that I was supposed to marinate the wings- I just baked them covered for 1 hour, but flipped them a few times, then I drained off alot of the sauce into a pan, brought it to a boil, added cornstarch to make a thick sauce to pour down over rice and the wings. I also broiled the wings for about 5 mins. to get a nice color and crunch! You never would have known that they were supposed to marinate! Also, I did add a few dashes of ground ginger and onion powder to the sauce for just a litte extra flavor...Awesome dinner again...this recipe will defiantely get use around my house!!

A Nice Slow-Cooked Pork

Reviewed: Jun. 10, 2007
This was really good. i seasoned the roast first with salt, pepper, garlic powder and some italian herbs, then browned it on all sides. I also reduced the liquid a bit- 1 cup sherry, 1 cup chicken stock...it was plenty of liquid. also, I served this over egg noodles that I cooked in stock and some of the liquid from the crock pot...my hubby loved it! He even went back for seconds...will definatley make again!

Pan Sauce Chicken

Reviewed: Jun. 8, 2007
I probably would not make this again-it was not bad, but just tasteless, even after I made some minor changes to the recipe that added flavor- I seasoned the chicken with salt, pepper, garlic powder and dried italian herbs, seared it in a pan, made a roux, added the white wine, stock and some fresh garlic and fresh herbs...not only was the sauce a bland, unattractive color, it was totally bland in taste too...I am glad that I made the changes that I did or it would have been REALLY tasteless!!

Pork Chops in Beer

Reviewed: Jun. 4, 2007
We love this. I do make a few changes- I add minced garlic and honey to the sauce and I bake the chops covered for 1 hour and then uncover them for another 30 minutes...they are really tender that way. I sear the chops first. I add sliced onions on top of the chops too. Also, after I uncover the chops, I drain off some of the sauce into a sauce pan, bring it to a boil and add some cornstarch to thicken it up, then drizzled it over the chops and rice...SUPER GOOD!! This is a regular in our house!

Quiche Lorraine I

Reviewed: May 20, 2007
This is a classic recipe that is so easy and delicious! I sautee the onions with some garlic, and add asparagus or spinach some times. I use a little less cream than what this recipe calls for. It is great for dinner or brunch with a tossed salad and fruit.

Sesame Shrimp Stir-Fry

Reviewed: May 20, 2007
This was pretty good, but a bit too spicy for us...I don't know if I will make this again, but if I do, I will use less pepper.

BBQ Pork for Sandwiches

Reviewed: May 20, 2007
I love this recipe! It is so easy. I use a pork butt or a chuck roast. There is an awesome bbq sauce recipe on this site for a kentuckey whiskey sauce that I use instead of bottled sauce. We make this at least 2-3 times a month; it is definatley a family hit.

Marie's Easy Slow Cooker Pot Roast

Reviewed: May 20, 2007
This is delicious!!! the first time that I made a pot roast, it was a disaster...so I found this recipe, and it turned out so well! It is so easy! I season flour with salt, pepper, onion and garlic powder and sear the roast on both sides before putting it in the crock pot with a can of beef broth...it is a weekly staple in our house!
