Cheater Pot Pie

Reviewed: Dec. 5, 2009
After Thanksgiving I wanted something quick and easy to make with the leftover turkey. This recipe was the winner. I used about 1 cup of turkey as opposed to chicken and instead of frozen vegetables, I used can green beans (since I had no peas) creamed corn (since we didn't have regular corn) baby carrots and mushrooms. I opted to cook everything in the sauce pan and added 1 can of creamed chicken (since I used a can of creamed corn) as well as milk to get the desired consistancy. For the pie portion of this recipe, I rolled out a defrosted frozen pie crust (A leftover, since its mate was used in a pie the night before), cut shapes with cookie cutters and baked in the oven per package directions to make pie crust cookies to serve on top of the pot pie. Definitly a cheater pot pie. I must say. I enjoyed the slight sweetness the creamed corn added.

Carrot Cake III

Reviewed: Dec. 5, 2009
Only change I made to this recipe was to substitute 2 cups of white sugar for 1 cup white 1 cup brown. Since I didn't want a cake, I made 24 cupcakes and must say they are delicious. *For the icing I only needed 2 cups of confectioners sugar.

Caramel Apple Pork Chops

Reviewed: Dec. 5, 2009
Made this recipe with the suggestions (marinated in soysauce/apple juice mix and baked on 350 for 25 min) of others and was pleasantly surprised. Certainly an ideal fall meal.

Unbelievable Chicken

Reviewed: May 16, 2009
Delicious. The combination of ingredients makes for an unexpectedly delicious meal. Don't let the bland color of the marinade fool you. I only marinated for 7 hours, but even that was delicious, cannot wait to try this while the meat had all night to marinade.

Jam Filled Butter Cookies

Reviewed: Mar. 4, 2009
Delicious. However I had to do this in shifts, and for whatever reason the second half of my batch became crumbly and would not cooperate. Although, the first batch that did come out was delicious - I modified by doubling the recipe, and adding salt and vanilla. Next time I would use less flour, as I think that is the reason my cookies were crumbly. As other reviewers mentioned I filled a baggie with the filling and had my 5 year old thumbprint all cookies, while I easily filled the holes.

Tangy Slow Cooker Pork Roast

Reviewed: Mar. 4, 2009
Wonderful, easy recipe. Pork was not bland, but full of flavor! I doubled the recipe, everything, including say sauce, vinegar, ketchup and spices. In addition, I added carrots (which were delicious) and next time I will add potatoes and celery (I had none at the time.) Delicious recipe. Even the 5 year old loved it!

Slow Cooker Chicken and Dumplings

Reviewed: Feb. 16, 2009
Delicious and easy. The only change I made was to add additional vegetables I had on hand to this recipe (corn, carrots and peas) and 1 can of biscuits as opposed to the necessary 2 cans. I added the biscuits (which I tore and rolled into dime sized balls) 3 hours before I planned to serve this meal.

Taco Rice

Reviewed: Feb. 16, 2009
Easy taco rice. I used Bill Echol's taco seasoning recipe for this. In addition, I omitted the olives.

Banana Crumb Muffins

Reviewed: Feb. 16, 2009
A delicious recipe. I didn't have the necessary 3 bananas, but 2 worked well enough. The cook time on this seemed a little long - wish I had taken it out a couple minutes sooner. However even a bit over cooked these were delicious and moist.

Banana Pudding IV

Reviewed: Feb. 16, 2009
This was a good recipe - but so amazingly sweet I couldn't stand it. I think this recipe would suffice WITHOUT the can of condensed milk.

Easy Coq Au Vin

Reviewed: Feb. 16, 2009
I followed the recipe to a tee. Be sure to make sure the chicken is av even thickness throughout - I pounded the chicken until it was about 1/4 inch thick to ensure an even cooking. The wine you use makes all the difference. I tend to prefer sweeter red wines, and therefor my Coq Au Vin resulted in a sweeter taste, as opposed to a red wine that is dry.

Creamy Twice-Baked Potatoes

Reviewed: Feb. 16, 2009
These were a real treat. A little time consuming but always a crowd pleaser. I always double this recipe, as I am typically not cooking for 2, and the recipe is easy to increase to accommodate however many you are cooking for. Excellent with steak and some type of green.

Cheeseburger Pockets

Reviewed: Feb. 16, 2009
Interesting. I used ground turkey for this recipe and followed the directions to a tee. Next time I would use less meat than called for, as there was a multitude of hamburger meat left. I doubled the serving in each pocket, and cooked per the directions. The bottoms were not fully cooked - so I would flip and cook for an additional 4 minutes to let the bottom of the pocket cook entirely.

Peanut Butter Quesadillas

Reviewed: Feb. 16, 2009
I made these for my son who is a Cheese Quesadilla Monster. The first time I made these for him he asked me "Where's the Cheese?" But he did finish the entire quesadilla. I did not use butter, just threw the tortilla on the frying pan and added the ingredients. Much healthier without the butter.

Boilermaker Tailgate Chili

Reviewed: Feb. 16, 2009
This was an excellent chili. I opted to cook the Chili in the crockpot, and only used 1 can of tomato paste. It was extremely spicy and had to mix in apple sauce for my 5 year old son. This was even after halving the red pepper and Tabasco sauce. Next time I will use 1/4 of the recommended hottening spices. We used ground turkey and it turned out fantastic.

Frosted Cranberries

Reviewed: Feb. 16, 2009
Delicious and easy. I brought these to a holiday party and everyone raved. A little more time consuming than I expected as I did about 1-2 lbs of Cranberries, however very pretty in a trifle dish as well.

Get a Husband Brunswick Stew

Reviewed: Feb. 16, 2009
A very basic recipe. Once I mixed the ingredients together I was quickly disappointed and had to improvise to get a more authentic stew. I only used shredded chicken - and no other type of meat. First the sauce: In a sauce pan, over low heat, melt 1/4 cup of butter then add: ketchup 1/4 cup French's Yellow Mustard 1/4 cup white vinegar Blend until smooth, then add: 1/2 tablespoon chopped garlic 1 teaspoon coarse ground black pepper 1/2 teaspoon crushed red pepper oz. Worcestershire Sauce dashes of tabasco a few drops of lemon juice Blend until smooth, then add: 1/4 cup dark brown sugar Stir constantly, increase heat to simmer - will add later For the pot mix - I added potatoes, about 4-6 cups chicken broth, 1 can of regular corn (in addition to 1 can of the creamed corn) and any other vegetables I had on hand (peas and carrots) I mixed everything together, and simmered for 5 hours before serving with french bread.

Charley's Slow Cooker Mexican Style Meat

Reviewed: Feb. 16, 2009
I followed this recipe to a tee and it was delicious and easy. The only exception was I used half of the required hot sauce. Delicious. I even made this for breakfast the next day with egg as directed.
