Slow Cooker Cranberry Roast

Reviewed: Sep. 25, 2008
Had that odd taste of fake cranberry gel. Maybe if you can get GOOD sauce this would be good but with the basic supermarket whole berry can it was a little gross.

Apple Crisp III

Reviewed: Sep. 25, 2008
Run the apples through the food processor on slice, apply topping and bake. Simple and tasty. Like others, I agree with adding spices to the apples themselves instead of just the topping.

Baked Stuffed Pumpkin

Reviewed: Sep. 25, 2008
Looks great but hard to serve, wastes a lot of pumpkin, ginger is too strong, pineapple chunks are too large to blend well, and makes too much to fit in the pumpkin. Won't make again.

Whole Wheat Oatmeal Bread

Reviewed: Aug. 21, 2008
Over-rose and fell. Too much yeast. Possibly the author used salted butter and counted on the salt in most quick cook oatmeals to control the rise. I didn't have those sodium sources and my bread didn't work well. Good crust, nice flavor, but the measurements need tweaking.

Sweet Restaurant Slaw

Reviewed: Aug. 21, 2008
Very good but use a good oil. I used safflower and it had a slight oily aftertaste.

Walnut Cocoa Bread

Reviewed: Aug. 6, 2008
It has a greasy aftertaste and not much flavor up front. Also, the nuts didn't blend in, a problem I've never had in 50+ loaves on this machine. We did the unthinkable and threw this loaf out. 2 stars because it did rise and slice well, just don't try to eat it.

Cherry and Raisin Loaf

Reviewed: Aug. 2, 2008
The measurements for cherries, raisins, and cinnamon are good. The bread recipe itself is mediocre - dry interior, thick but not flaky crust. I'll use these flavorings in these proportions in a better bread recipe.

BBQ Chicken Pizza

Reviewed: Aug. 2, 2008
Idea and ingredients are good. Proportions are wrong for my family's taste.

Maple Oatmeal Bread

Reviewed: Jul. 17, 2008
I used fake maple syrup and got little maple flavor. It rose very well for the amount of flour so I would not scale up to a 2lb loaf unless you want to overflow your machine. I added 1/4 c water early in the mixing because the loaf was so dry. 1/2 c chopped walnuts added a nice texture.

Chicken Kabobs Mexicana

Reviewed: Jul. 10, 2008
I marinated for two hours and got a nice chicken kabob. Too much longer and you'd risk getting a lime kabob. As is I got a good, fresh, clean flavor. Mexicana may be a misleading name.

Applesauce Bread III

Reviewed: Jul. 10, 2008
Not very apple-y but too much apple to be an all purpose bread.

Grilled Chicken Kabobs

Reviewed: Jul. 10, 2008
This has a very strong spice kick. Good but not an everyday recipe. Marinade works well on pineapple.

Chocolate Chip Almond Bread

Reviewed: Jul. 10, 2008
This recipe did not work for me. Mix was way too dry. I had to add over 1/4 c water and it was still very thick. Also, I have a beep to add nuts and such and tried just adding the chips and nuts then. It works for other recipes but not this one! The mix was still too thick for them to distribute.

Pseudo Sourdough for the Bread Machine

Reviewed: Jun. 30, 2008
Chewy inside, crusty outside. Nothing sour at all about the flavor. Used rye in lieu of barley because of availability. Had to add 2 T of water at 5 min. Good bread. A keeper.

Pesto Sauce

Reviewed: Jun. 26, 2008
I cut back the oil to 3/4 c to avoid the floating slick most pestos have. I shouldn't have. The proportions on this recipe are just right.

Orange Ginger Bread

Reviewed: Jun. 26, 2008
It's not a bread machine recipe if I have to turn on the oven. Dumped it all in the breadmaker on whole wheat, 1.5 lb loaf, light crust. Added 1/4 cup water during kneading b/c the mix was too dry. Final result was still a bit dry. Texture about as expected for the flours (medium grainy). I don't understand why this recipe used all purpose instead of bread flour. Bread had a hint of sweetness, faint orange flavor, ginger undertones. Overall I'd say it was too mildly spiced to be a specialty bread and too flavored to be an all purpose bread. I won't be making this again.
