Kalua Pig in a Slow Cooker

Reviewed: Sep. 16, 2014
We have made this more than once and love it. I typically use a pork shoulder. Until just recently I was making this with regular sea salt, but I now have some Hawaiian salt purchased just to make this recipe. I wonder if that will change the taste any? Great for football games, birthday parties and New Year's Eve. You won't be disappointed with this tenderness and flavor of this pork.

Delicious Ham and Potato Soup

Reviewed: Oct. 30, 2012
I asked for some help peeling potatoes and my 13-year-old son volunteered and then ended up making this soup mostly on his own. This is the most fabulous Potato & Ham soup we have ever had and he was so proud to have made it. I only had turkey ham so that's what we used but we didn't alter a thing beyond that. While the white sauce was thickening, and he was stirring constantly, my son couldn't help but comment on the fabulous smell coming from the cooking potato and ham mix. Very, very tasty soup that will definitely be included in our winter rotation often.

Taffy Apple Salad III

Reviewed: Aug. 6, 2012
This was very tasty and well received by children who don't like apples or pineapples. The adults liked it too. The only problem I had was finding raw Spanish peanuts - I just used salted peanuts and it was just fine. I also used one green and one red apple per my children's request. Making it again shortly for an office gathering.

Flourless Peanut Butter Cookies

Reviewed: Jan. 15, 2010
These are so easy the kids can make them for something quick and sweet in the evening. Very peanut buttery. Best on the day they're made - we freeze the leftovers and that seems to work ok.

Pumpkin Pancakes

Reviewed: Oct. 14, 2007
This was the first time we'd made pumpkin pancakes. These are amazing! I highly recommend these pancakes.

Kellogg's® Chocolate Scotcheroos

Reviewed: Aug. 5, 2008
This was one of my grandma's standards. Now that she's gone I'm the baker and this is one of the most requested cookies. Very easy to make and delicious. I sometimes double the chocolate and butterscotch chips for a thicker chocolate top depending on who I'm making them for.

Spiced Banana Bread

Reviewed: Oct. 16, 2008
Yum! This was fantastic. I used pumpkin pie spice because that's what I had on hand, but otherwise made no adjustments. Fabulous!

Grilled Pizza Wraps

Reviewed: Aug. 14, 2008
These were easy and great! Next time I'd leave off the butter as it had a tendency to burn, but other than that the kids loved them. Something even my husband can make. Bravo!

Chili Dog Casserole II

Reviewed: Mar. 6, 2011
This was actually really good, although from the reviews I expected it to be. Followed some other reviewers choices and used turkey dogs, but I would still like to try it with beef dogs. Used low carb flour tortillas and precooked the dogs. Very tasty. Had it as leftovers the 2nd day and could have nuked it a bit longer since the dogs were cool.

Potato Dumplings II

Reviewed: Oct. 15, 2011
I was looking for something that didn't require actual potatoes because I didn't have any. For the simplicity I didn't expect much, but these are excellent. I actually made them with only 1 egg (didn't read the recipe well) and they turned out just fine. Like other reviewers I had a problem kneading them. I used my dough hook and just kept adding flour but they were still sticky even after adding almost 3/4 C more flour. I pretty much took a spoon and dumped 6 blobs into chicken broth to cook. They weren't pretty, but they taste great. Next time I will make them smaller since I thought they were too big. I agree that on their own they are bland, but I've never eaten dumplings without buttter and salt or gravy of some sort. We will definately have these again. Thank you for sharing.

Simple Mexican Rice

Reviewed: Jul. 24, 2010
I was surprised that everyone in my household liked this because of the tomato base, but they did. We weren't fond of the cumin, which I had cut in 1/2, and might try to add more chili powder next time and less cumin.

Macaroni and Cheese Bake

Reviewed: Jan. 15, 2010
Very good place to start - I was able to use what I had on hand and make something good for dinner. Used shredded cheese and half & half (discovered I was out of milk after I started) and no tomatoes since my kids don't like them. Would add some spices next time to kick it up a bit.

Fast Chicken Divan

Reviewed: Nov. 7, 2008
One of my all time favorites from when I was a kid! This recipe was great and very fast. We'll definately make it again, but may add a little milk so the sauce reaches the bottom of the pan.

Chicken Puffs

Reviewed: Oct. 16, 2008
My husband and I liked these, the kids were reluctant to try them for some reason. A bit time consuming to put together and it makes a lot! I felt like I was jumping up every few minutes to get another pan out of the oven. Great warmed up the next day as leftovers.

Taco Lasagna

Reviewed: Sep. 15, 2008
This was great for the adults in our group, but the kids were a little uncertain of it as it was a bit too spicy. Next time I will use a smooth salsa as several family members don't like tomatoes, but overall I think this is something to make again for a large group - it makes a lot!

Chicken Taquitos

Reviewed: Aug. 14, 2008
These were very tasty and easy to make. My 9 year old liked them a lot. Like others, I microwaved the corn tortillas to make them easier to work with. I found that doing 6 at a time with a damp paper towel made them pliable, then I filled, rolled and fried them immediately. Several of my first attempts "ripped" while waiting to be fried, so I found it easy to work in small batches and fry them right away. We'll make this again, but not too often since they're fried.

Parmesan Baked Potatoes

Reviewed: Aug. 14, 2008
These were very good and easy to make but a bit on the salty side. One to make again!

Slow Cooker Dump and Go Cheesy Chicken

Reviewed: Aug. 14, 2008
This was so easy and the kids loved it! The sauce was a little thin so next time I might just leave out the milk entirely. Will definately make this again.

Chicken Parmigiana

Reviewed: Sep. 3, 2012
The family thought this was very tasty and it was very easy to make. We did take the advice of other reviewers and seasoned the chicken with garlic salt and ground pepper before coating it with Italian seasoned crumbs. I agree with the review(s) that said the chicken should be pounded to the same thickness and I will do that next time. However, I think it is only fair to rate the recipe as it is presented to the community. Definitely a keeper.

Slow Cooker Chili II

Reviewed: Oct. 30, 2012
This was very good. I tripled the recipe (except the meat - only doubled) based on the large cans of tomato puree I bought and made it with ground turkey. Very filling, meaty and tasty. My son and husband aren't fond of beans and this had a lot of them. Son ate them, husband no so much. Overall I would make this again making it spicier (it is very mild in my opinion). Thanks for a great recipe.
