Super Easy Slow Cooker Chicken

Reviewed: Jan. 7, 2009
This is one of those recipes that my husband looks at me like I am crazy while I am throwing it all together, then while he is eating all he can say is "MMMM! This is awesome!" I use my crock pot alot, and this is one of the easiest, best dishes that I have done in a while-it always amazes me how just 4 ingredients thrown in a pot can make such a yummy dinner! I did make a few changes, as usual. I used 2 cans of soup because when I put the cream of chicken& herbs it just didn't look like alot, so I also threw in a cream of chicken & mushroom as well; but to be honest you would probably be fine with just the one can. I would have also seasoned and browned the chicken breasts first but I was pressed for time to get it in the crock pot, but next time I will definately do that. I used bone in chicken breasts,white onion and fresh sliced baby portabella mushrooms;and I also threw in some garlic and additional herbs. My 3 year old is a huge mushroom fan (the kid won't eat a piece of pizza without mushrooms!), so she loved this but everyone else did too! I am always looking for recipes that I can add to my slow cooker meal rotation and this is definately a keeper!!Thanks for the recipe!!

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!!

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!!

Baked Brie in Puff Pastry

Reviewed: Oct. 16, 2007
Delicious!! I used apricot preserves and almonds in the brie and wrapped in in crescent roll dough...next time I will use the puff pastry because the crescent roll dough was VERY hard to work with, and there were so many seams...that is the one thing that I would definatley reccommend-make sure you do not have any cracks in whatever you are wrapping the brie in...a bit of my cheese oozed out, but it was no big deal...will definately make again many times!!

Pan-Seared Chicken Breasts with Shallots

Reviewed: Jun. 27, 2013
This was fantastic! Everyone in my family enjoyed this one...shocker!! Usually my uber picky son finds something not to like...not this time! And, when he accidentally dropped a piece on the floor, the cat came and ate it, then sat at foot of my kids chairs, meowing & waiting for more to fall...he never does that, so this was a hit even with the cat haha...oh, I did dredge the lightly pounded chicken breasts in seasoned flour (garlic, salt, white pepper) then I browned them in the pan, took them out, added the shallots and some mushrooms, the wine, etc, and then when the sauce was ready, I put the chicken back in with the sauce, and let it all cook together for a few minutes. Served it with rice pilaf & broccoli. next time I will try it over pasta, as others suggested, that sounded very good, but I was already planning on making spaghetti and meatballs the next night, so I opted for rice this time. Great addition to the recipe box& I will be making this again soon.

Ham 'n' Swiss Rolls

Reviewed: Nov. 1, 2007
YUM YUM!!! I made these for my 2 year old for lunch, and put ham and cheddar cheese in 2 for her, and in the rest I put ham, onions and gouda (I didn't have swiss, and I don't care for mustard, so I left that out)SO GOOD!!! I was thinking of all of the different yummy stuff that you could do with this...I can't wait to play with this recipe!! (I'm thinking individual baked brie's!) Thanks for the good post!!

Rich and Simple French Onion Soup

Reviewed: Dec. 3, 2007
This was so good! I had no idea that my favorite soup would be so easy and quick to make! I did make a few changes....I added a pinch of sugar and carmelized the onions, this took about 30 minutes. Then I added garlic powder, white pepper, thyme, bay leaf, and beef broth. Next time I will add an extra can of broth, but that may just be my personal preference. I will be making this on a regular basis!!

Smothered Green Beans

Reviewed: Dec. 6, 2007
This was delicious!! I used pole beans, and shallots instead of onions...I was in a hurry, so I sauteed the bacon, garlic and shallots, salt and pepper while I steamed the beans seperately in the microwave for 2 minutes. When the bacon was pretty crispy, I added the beans and sauteed for a few minutes. I will definately make this again. I actually have made a version of this recipe using proscuitto, shallots, garlic, salt, white pepper, and brussel sprouts instead of the beans...it's THE only way to eat brussel sprouts!!!

Kickin' Collard Greens

Reviewed: Jan. 3, 2008
These were delicious...they(in my opinion, at least) need more than an hour, but no big deal, next time I will cook them for at least 30 minutes longer...maybe even throw them in the slow cooker...

Roast Sticky Chicken-Rotisserie Style

Reviewed: Jan. 3, 2008
This was so yummy!! I came across this recipe a while ago, and decided the other day at kind of the last minute to do a roasted chicken, and I remembered that I had wanted to try this recipe...anyway, long story short, I skipped the marinating step and the chicken was still delicious, although next time I will marinate it as the recipe calls for. I only cooked one chicken, so 5 hours was longer than needed to cook it, so I just set my oven to warm... I roasted some garlic and made a shallot and roasted garlic gravy from the pan drippings, and served it with hoppin' john and kicken' collard greens from this website. I will definately be making this again!!

Broccoli and Ramen Noodle Salad

Reviewed: Feb. 19, 2008
When I saw this was the recipe of the day, I had to write a review- my father in law got me hooked on this salad, and it is a staple for the entire family...the only thing is that we don't add the peanuts and sunflower seeds...but I think that next time, I definately will, it sounds like a great addition! Thanks for the post, everyone should try this out as an alternative to coleslaw or a side salad!

Vegetable Fried Rice

Reviewed: Feb. 26, 2008
This is awesome!! The brown sugar and lime juice really make it. I used 1/2 teryaki sauce and 1/2 lite soy sauce and added a little sesame oil. I also added an egg, because I wanted it to be exactly like chinese restaurant friend rice. I also added a little cilantro as well, just because I love it so much! I will defiantely be keeping this as my fried rice recipe!!

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!!

Beef and Irish Stout Stew

Reviewed: Apr. 21, 2008
This was SO good! I made it on st. pattys day, and served it over goat cheese colcannon (I sauteed cabbage, onions and bacon, and mixed it together with goat cheese mashed potatoes). I used parsnips and carrots, and added chopped leeks near the end. I will definately make this again!

Slow Cooker Chicken Cacciatore

Reviewed: May 25, 2008
Wow! I have been searching for a chicken cacciatore recipe that reminded me of my mother's, and this is it! Plus, it's way less work than she did to produce basically the same great taste. I used frozen chicken breasts, a jar of bertolli roasted garlic sauce, then I added tomato paste, and additional garlic and herbs. Close to the end of cooking, I added onions, baby portabellas, green peppers, carrots and zucchini...served over angel hair...SO good, everyone ate silently!! I will most definately be making this again!!

Cake Mix Cookies I

Reviewed: Jun. 26, 2008
Like the submitter of this recipe, I recieved this recipe from a friend a few days ago, and I just made them for the first time- they are AWESOME!! This recipe is the same as mine, except I add 1 tsp. vanilla. I made a devil's food cake mix with mini choc chips, and peanut butter chips. SO GOOD!! My husband kind of made fun of me making cake mix cookies..."why can't you just make regular choc. chip cookies?" he asked...then ate about 6 of them and made himself sick. ha ha. The beauty of these is that the sky's the limit...next time I am going to use a german choc cake mix, coconut, mini choc chips and walnuts! Yum! great post Nicole!

Garlic Chicken Stir Fry

Reviewed: Sep. 8, 2008
I thought that this was delicious! It was easy to make too! Tasted like the garlic chicken I get at my fav chinese take out place- only better!I omitted the cabbage and green onions (didn't have these on hand) and used broccoli and carrots, snow peas, 1 onion and red bell pepper. I thought that it was a perfect amount of garlic and ginger, but my young kids did think it was a bit too spicy, so next time I'll use a little less. I'll definately make this again!
