Pork Chops for the Slow Cooker

Reviewed: Mar. 4, 2012
Winner for everyone in our family! For the sauce, I followed other reviewers and used 1/4 cup soy sauce (gluten free for us) and doubled the brown sugar and ketchup. I ended up adding 1 cup pineapple tidbits in juice and about 1/2 water so the sauce completely covered the chops. I turned the heat up to high the last half hour and added carrot and red bell pepper strips to the sauce. After the veggies got tender, we added 2 TBSPs corn starch at the very end to make the sauce a gravy which we served over rice. It was fabulous with a great sweat and sour vibe. The kids devoured it! Thanks for the recipe - it's going in our regular rotation

Jambalaya

Reviewed: Mar. 1, 2012
A family favorite! All three kids (4-12 years old) love jambalaya nigh - as do the adults. This makes great leftovers for lunches during the week at work. The spices are a great mix in this recipe. We cut down on them a touch for two of our kids, but the third likes it spicy! He actually adds more tabasco! We play around with adding more veggies and switching out the meats based on what we have on hand. Currently using Jenny'O turkey kielbasa with/without chicken and/or shrimp. We always use brown rice - that's all we buy - and it still tastes great. Excellent recipe - has the honor of being in our regular rotation!

Zucchini Bisque

Reviewed: Aug. 4, 2010
This recipe really surprised us. We were looking to use up some abundant zuccini and thought we'd try this but were rather skeptical. We're on a low sodium diet, so we had to modify the recipe because of that. We also changed: 2 TBSP butter instead of 1/2 cup; added one HUGE clove garlic, diced; used fresh basil (a small handful of leaves, about a dozen); and used 1 cup 1% milk instead of cream. For sodium reduction, we added 2 1/2 cups water with one bullion cube instead of 2 1/2 cups broth and we did *not* add the 1/2 tsp salt. Next time, we will use only one cube *low sodium* bullion because we still found the recipe a touch salty. We feel like the changes made a more healthful soup without effecting the flavor or consistancy of the soup. This has become a favorite zucchini recipe already!

Tart Lemon Triangles

Reviewed: May 28, 2010
Love this recipe! I've made it about 10 times in the last few months (using up some fresh lemons). The only change I make is to double the filling - I like more filling with my crust. Great recipe - thanks for sharing!!

Peanut Butter Bars I

Reviewed: Mar. 21, 2010
My Reese's loving 11 year old loved these as her 'birthday cake' this year, as did everyone else at the party - everyone had at least two! I scaled the recipe up to 16 servings because we had a larger pan and it came out perfectly.

Sweet Potato Casserole VI

Reviewed: Nov. 29, 2009
My favorite part of Thanksgiving! This year I doubled the potatoes and left everything else the same - turned out great. One of our guests thought it was dessert and had three helpings!!

Pumpkin Spice Cupcakes

Reviewed: Nov. 29, 2009
This recipe was great - very grown up. I followed some other people's suggestions with the muffin batter. The frosting, is AMAZING as is and I've used it now on other things too. I made butterhorns for Thanksgiving with this frosting to rave reviews. A keeper!

Turkey Pot Pie

Reviewed: Nov. 29, 2009
Fantastic! I had to modify to make it in one skillet: butter, potatoes and carrots first until softened but firm, then add other veggies and spices. Next add turkey, then add flour, stir. Then milk stirring well, then chicken broth. We also added a few garlic cloves in with our veggies. We didn't have a top crust, so I used dumpling mix and covered with aluminum foil in the oven. We removed the foil for the last 10 minutes which gave the crust some crunch. This was great - even the kids ate it!

Guacamole

Reviewed: Feb. 11, 2008
This recipe is perfect. Not only did I love it, but our 5-year-old was running around the kitchen clapping and singing, he liked it that much! Plus our picky eating 9 year old daughter even ate it! Great recipe, a real keeper!!!
