Slow Cooker Mole-Style Pulled Pork

Reviewed: Oct. 29, 2011
I found this lacking in flavor - I would increase spices next time. It just didn't really have that rich mole flavor I was hoping for - also it seemed runny. I would try another recipt before going through the effort to tweek this one.

Seven Layer Taco Dip

Reviewed: Nov. 25, 2009
I used black re-fried beans instead b/c we love their flavor and mixed in a can of black beans for texture. I omitted the mayo - it just seemed unnecessary - didn't miss it a bit. easy to make up the night before a party and assemble just before guest arrive.

Chinese Broccoli

Reviewed: Nov. 25, 2009
I tried this and added it to cabbage instead. I used one clove of garlic and it was still way too much garlic for my taste. I would make again but omit the garlic - or use garlic powder.

Chicken Pot Pie IX

Reviewed: Nov. 11, 2009
Really good! I liked the modifications suggested here to double the sauce - I boiled my chicken in stock then drained it and added it to the sauce mix. Next time I will add potatoes and garlic as suggested. I used puffed pastry to cover each individual serving - yummmm! This is a keeper.

Acorn Squash Soup

Reviewed: Nov. 3, 2009
The flavor is great - it's all about getting the texture right. I don't have luck with immersion blenders and I don't want to mess with transferring hot liquid. so.... I purred the onion, celery then cooked and added other ingredients as directed. then added purred acorn squash. I roasted two acorn squash and it yielded about 5 cups of squash. I used low fat evaporated milk and low fat/sodium chicken broth. I didn't have bacon and felt that it was a little too sweet for me - so put a dollop of low fat sour cream on top. looked really pretty and helped mellow out the sweetness of the acorn squash just a tad.

Chicken Makhani (Indian Butter Chicken)

Reviewed: Nov. 2, 2009
Really good and worth the effort. I decided to brown the chicken first in the pan then remove. Then I blitzed the onions and a clove of garlic in my mini processor to make it smooth (I didn't want to deal with transferring hot liquid later) followed directions to add all the spices and liquid. I added chicken and simmered for 45 while the brown rice cooked. I added few pinches of spicy curry powder at the end b/c it seemed to need just a little kick. I will make again and again. All this hints here really made it wonderful. Love all your advice :)

Slow Cooker Chicken Parisienne

Reviewed: Oct. 20, 2009
We liked this one. I added fresh mushrooms and reduced the sour cream b/c i didn't want it to taste like strogonoff. added a little bit of Worcestershire sauce. This is a good basic recipe to work with if you like to improvise. my only critique is that it lacks color and visual appeal. but tasty.

Creamy Shrimp Scampi

Reviewed: Oct. 20, 2009
We enjoyed this dish, although I won't make often b/c of the high calorie content. I decided to make the sauce and add the shrimp at the end to cook - seemed to work well for me. I added pinch of pepper flakes and more garlic as mentioned by others. Used 1 cup of wine and cut the broth in 1/2. I didn't bread shrimp b/c I forgot, so i added in a little corn starch at the end to thicken. Sauce was still runny, but if you like to sop it all up with bread it's perfect.

Cranberry Salsa

Reviewed: Dec. 15, 2008
I put the cranberrys in the food processor to chop them up. I wish I would have processed them a little longer so that the berry's were a little more even (if they aren't more fine when you eat it you get a big hit of the tart cranberry). Overall we really enjoyed this one and will make again. I served with tortilla chips.

Wonderful Chicken Curry Salad

Reviewed: Dec. 15, 2008
This was really good! I didn't have grapes but did add the rasins! that little hit of sweet is really great with the curry. I love curry so I did bump up the spices a little. I served this for lunch in pita - was even better the next day after a little time to rest. very easy!

Homemade Black Bean Veggie Burgers

Reviewed: Dec. 15, 2008
We really enjoyed this one! I put pepper, onion, garlic in the food processor until it was starting to break down - then added the black beans and spices and gave it a few whirls in the processor. I used two eggs whites and a crumbs until it wasn't too wet. I didn't have any issues with falling apart. I cooked them on the stove top. these are on heavy rotation.

Enchilada Sauce

Reviewed: Dec. 7, 2008
this was my first attempt at making a brown sauce and it was really good. Had to fight through the beginning with the strange texture. Just keep stirring and add the broth and it will turn out fine. I reduced the cinnamon after reading other reviews and was glad I did. We froze the other part and just used it again this week to make turkey enchiladas (had to use up the thanksgiving turkey!)

Marie's Easy Slow Cooker Pot Roast

Reviewed: Nov. 2, 2008
We really enjoyed this. I like a bit of a tomatoe base to my pot roast so I added a big spoon full of tomatoe paste and combined it with the soup mix, water, & veggies. I took some of the advice here and browned the meat, added 2 table spoons of worcestershire sauce & a 1/4 cup of red wine & a sprig of Thyme. The sauce was AMAZING. I found that the soup mix makes it very salty! I would avoid using it next time and just spice it up myself. I will be making again and again for sure!

Chicken Curry I

Reviewed: Oct. 29, 2008
We really enjoyed this! I used fresh ginger and used chicken breasts cut into big chunks. I followed some of the tips here and added more water so we had plenty of sauce and reduced the cinnimon a bit. I also used spicy curry powder so I didn't add pepper at the end. Also - i scopped out a 1/2 cup of sauce and 1/2 cup of plain yogurt - mix together in a small bowl and drizzle over the top. it makes it for a pretty presentation and adds a tart zing. I will add veggies next time - it needs some green!

Slow Cooker Chicken Cacciatore

Reviewed: Oct. 6, 2008
Great quick meal idea. However, it needs some tweeking. Jar sause is too thick, so i added chicken stock, and added more italian spices. I decided to cut the chicken breasts into chunks to make it easier to serve.

Pasta Fagioli Soup

Reviewed: Oct. 6, 2008
The flavor is very good overall. I think it is short on broth so I added another can of chicken stock and some more water. (I need plenty for dunking my bread in) Also, it seems like too many noodles so I only added 1/2 amount called for. In the past I've also used cheese filled tortellini rather than shells. Sometimes I use frozen spinach and it works just fine. I will make again.

Creamy Chicken Asparagus Casserole

Reviewed: Sep. 23, 2008
I took some of the comments and added garlic, mushrooms, seasoned the chicken and mixed the soup separately with the taragon & 1/2 cup chicken stock to thin. It turned out really well. We are fat and happy on the couch after a great dinner and looking forward to leftovers tomorrow.

Spicy Slow Cooker Black Bean Soup

Reviewed: Jul. 15, 2008
This was my first time making black bean soup and my husbands first time eating it. We both enjoyed it and will make again. I followed suggestions to add onion and fresh garlic. I also reduced the spice a bit since we don't care for things that are too spicy. Good flavor and simple.
