Slow Cooker Thanksgiving Turkey

Reviewed: Feb. 8, 2010
I used a 7.5 pound bone-in breast, it was still done in about 7 hours. I also sliced an onion and added it in the beginning, and did 7 strips of bacon instead of 5. About halfway through cook time I added a can of turkey broth because it was looking a little dry. It was fantastic, definitely one of the better turkeys I've had. If I do a small Thanksgiving next year, I might reuse this recipe for that occasion.

Banana Banana Bread

Reviewed: Jan. 17, 2010
this was the first banana bread I made, but not the first I've eaten. I was surprised how many bananas it took to hit 2 1/3 cups. I only had 5, so had to supplement (thanks other users for suggestions on that!). I used light brown sugar and baked for 65 minutes. turned out okay, I guess. made it for a potluck, every single person complimented it. I guess I was just expecting more flavor from other reviews.

Creamy Cheesy Scrambled Eggs with Basil

Reviewed: Jan. 16, 2010
made this on a whim this morning. followed recipe exactly, except substituted 1/2 tbsp dried minced basil leaves instead of fresh. I thought it was okay, nothing I'd make for company. The mozzarella flavor came through nicely. My husband thought the basil was heavy. He would try it again with less basil.

Amaretto Divine

Reviewed: Dec. 17, 2009
I couldn't not give this five stars. I made it for my husband's birthday (amaretto is his favorite). I used International Delights Liquid non-dairy amaretto flavor (you can go on their website and find out which stores carry it... I had to go across town), Disaronno amaretto, and cool whip lite. I omitted nuts and heath bars. As per others' suggestions, I put wax paper down in my pans and the cakes came out perfectly (about 21-22 minutes for me). I used two Hershey's bars, but struggled to get all of the drizzle on there, there was so much!! I also used two 8oz tubs of cool whip... one and a half would have been fine (I frosted sides too). Everyone thought I bought it from a bakery when they looked at it, and were in love with the flavor. Worked out so well!!! Update: I've been using this recipe for 4 years now, as cakes and cupcakes, changing out various liqueurs, creamers, and puddings. I just tried Kahlua Cinnamon Spice with Cinnamon Vanilla creamer, which resulted in a little drier of a cake than I'd have hoped for - maybe I should have changed the yellow cake base this time.

Simple Time Pork Chops

Reviewed: Nov. 6, 2009
I tried mixing the mayo and butter like others have suggested and that was kinda messy. I increased the garlic powder a little (and omitted the salt), and that flavor came out great. As I was putting the cheese on, there was just tons there... used 3/4 cup and stopped. left the dish very oily between the ingredients anyway. DH and both liked it okay, not a bad flavor but not our favorite.

Easy Deviled Chicken

Reviewed: Oct. 2, 2009
I halved the recipe, but still used 2 T brown spicy mustard. I needed to crush the stuffing a bit. I did the 350 degrees with 30 minutes covered, 15 uncovered (and it was still a little dry). I liked it okay, husband didn't really care for it. The mustard flavor was good, especially with the stuffing. But it didn't seem to go with chicken. Probably won't make it again, since we already have leftovers I'll have to sneak onto the plates this week.

Cherry Pie II

Reviewed: Aug. 26, 2009
this turned out remarkably well. Easily the best fruit pie I've made yet! My husband even said it was Thanksgiving-quality, and that means a lot to me, if not to you as well. I modified the flour to 1/4 cup and used Rainier cherries instead of sour cherries. I did have to mash about half of them to get enough juice to mix with the dry ingredients. I used the 9" frozen Pillsbury crust, since they're sold in packages of two.

Seared Tuna with Wasabi-Butter Sauce

Reviewed: Mar. 2, 2009
I would give it a 1, but husband LOVED it, so I'll compromise with a 3. We halved the butter, but followed everything else exactly. Could have done with less cilantro. Be aware that this is VERY wasabi-y. It was a strange taste to me to have wasabi have the greasy texture of butter.

Deep Fried Spinach

Reviewed: Mar. 2, 2009
gave this a try the other night, along with "Seared Tuna with Wasabi-Butter Sauce" on this site. It was different, but neither of us really cared for it. Will not be making again.

Blackened Tuna

Reviewed: Feb. 17, 2009
our tuna steaks were almost 2 inches thick, and 90 seconds per side was too long. definitely will only put them on 45 seconds or so per side next time. I used Tony Chachere's Cajun Seasoning.

Teena's Spicy Pesto Chicken and Pasta

Reviewed: Dec. 28, 2008
three people I made it for loved it and wouldn't change a thing. I, on the other hand, didn't think it was flavorful enough. way too bland for my tastes... I think more chili paste and maybe 1 tbsp less oil would be good for the next try.

Pepperoni Hopple-Popple

Reviewed: Dec. 26, 2008
we eliminated the salt, but otherwise made it as directed. Will make again, but will cook the potatoes longer before adding the eggs so they're crispier in the end. Will also try dicing the pepperoni instead of slicing.

Onion-Roasted Potatoes

Reviewed: Nov. 28, 2008
these were kinda disappointing. I used russet potatoes instead of red, and it took them about 75-80 minutes instead of 50. the end result was good but not great. probably wouldn't make again.

Slow Cooker Chicken Stroganoff

Reviewed: Nov. 24, 2008
Made it with chicken tenderloin, as that's what I had on hand. Used reduced-fat cream cheese. Cooked 4:30 on low, then added the soup & cream cheese. Some of the chicken was a little over-done, some was delicious. Mixture was too rich for my husband, who suggested half the cream cheese next time. Served it over bowtie noodles, with green beans.

Chicken Scampi II

Reviewed: Nov. 23, 2008
This was okay. Served it with angel hair, broccoli, and crescent rolls, with pigs-in-a-blanket for appetizer and chocolate cake for dessert. The chicken had a definite scampi flavor, and was good reheated for lunch the following day. But it was a bit too oily/greasy to be completely enjoyed.

Mild Cheesy Chicken Enchiladas

Reviewed: Nov. 20, 2008
giving this 5 stars because both my husband and our friend could not think of any way to make it better. I omitted the black olives, and instead of tomatoes I used medium salsa. Otherwise, I followed directions exactly. The prep work (including cooking the chicken) took me 40-45 minutes.

Fried Dill Pickles

Reviewed: Oct. 16, 2008
these were good, but not the best I've ever had. The batter needed to be thicker, I think.

I don't like mushrooms so I didn't try them, but everyone else loved them!
