Slow Cooker Tapioca Pudding

Reviewed: Dec. 1, 2007
I love Tapioca Pudding, but, I don't make it very often as it does take watching over. I am glad to say that is not the case anymore. I will make this pudding-doubled-alot from now on. Easy to do, just measure and put it in crockpot. I took some other reviewers advice and added some vanilla and salt, doubled the recipe and cooked it on high for 3 hrs. Came out perfecto. My only advice would be to break up the eggs, prior to putting in crockpot, don't just drop them in there and then wonder why it doesn't come out right. You need to break them up. Also, be sure to stir during cooking, it helps to keep everything mixed up. So, that you don't end up with layers of eggs, tapioca, etc. Otherwise--just enjoy eating this comfort food.

Sweet and Savory Kale

Reviewed: Feb. 14, 2008
Well, I have to admit that it was very good. I have never had kale, or any other "southern" type of green. They used to sound kinda gross to me. But, my CSA box sent me a bunch of kale and I wanted to try it one time, to see if I truly did not like it or not. I wanted a simple recipe. This recipe fit the bill perfectly, and it tasted really good too. Way to go Surja! We will be making this again. Only changes will be halving the sugar in half and greatly increasing the dried cranberries. Very easy and quick to make. Make sure the Kale is dried off very well.

Caramelized Onions

Reviewed: Jan. 6, 2008
Not bad. I am going to make it a second time and try it Chebelle's way. Just add white sugar to the pan as they start to brown and that will carmelize. I will let you know which way I like better. A little bit too molasses"y". But, still good. UPDATE: I made them the other way that was suggested by a reviewer-Chebelle-I like her way much better. But, you could probably use less molasses if you want and add some white sugar as they are carmelizing. They should be just as good. Enjoy!

Cranberry Raspberry Sauce

Reviewed: Nov. 5, 2007
This is a good sauce for Day After Sandwiches, pork and probably chicken. My only tip is that you don't need to worry about mashing the cranberries, they do that all by themselves. As they simmer, they pop. The dish comes out a gorgeous color. If you want color at your Holiday table, this dish will provide that!

Nana's Mashed Turnip

Reviewed: Apr. 4, 2008
I've never had Turnips at all. I love mashed potatoes, so, seeing as my produce box had a Turnip, thought I would try it. We were not disappointed. Will definitely make again. I used red potatoes and I also used brown sugar instead of white, it added some extra flavor to it. Add the salt and pepper as you are serving. Enjoy!

Best Ever Chuck Wagon Chili

Reviewed: Dec. 4, 2007
Oh boy, this is like the best chili we've ever had. The only thing I did different is I added some brown sugar to take away some of the tomatoeness, but, I always do that to my tomato based dishes. It helps with the taste. We loved it and will be making this again. We're going to buy some hot dogs and serve this over them. Yum!!

Mom's Traditional Creamed Onions

Reviewed: Jan. 4, 2009
This was excellent!! The last time I had creamed onions, they were frozen! This was way better and much tastier. Here is what I did: Bring the water to a boil, and drop your onions in, skins and all, let them boil for 1-2 min., drain them. Then, you cut them, by doing it this way, it is much easier. Far as the white sauce goes, equal amounts of butter and flour, combine the milk with the cooking water. I did it a cup at a time. 1 C. of cooking water mixed with 1 C. of milk, pour that in gradually. The spices I used were salt and pepper to taste, and Paprika. On any spice, you can always add more of it at the end, so go sparingly while in the pan. Paprika is a great spice, a nice hint of color, and a great taste too. My husband and I loved this dish, he's never had them before and he enjoyed this. Will definitely be making this again. Thanks Ibby! Really enjoyed it.

Skillet Cookies I

Reviewed: Nov. 13, 2007
Oh my!! These are really good! My only change was instead of rolling them in powdered sugar, which I am out of, I rolled them in finely ground coconut. It reduces the sweetness-you might want to try it with coconut. I love these and I know my husband, who can't stand coconut, will enjoy them also. Thanks Barbara, for the good recipe.

Grilled Salmon Sandwiches

Reviewed: Nov. 2, 2007
These were tasty. Our only problem with them is that when you dip in the milk/egg mix. they are difficult to put in the frypan fast enough. Ours drooped. But, they were really good. We thought about it, and we think we have a solution. Next time, we are going to build our sandwich in the pan. First, dip bread in milk/egg mix., put into pan. Secondly, put salmon mix onto bread. Thirdly, dip second slice of bread into mix and put on top. We think that will make better sandwiches. Will let you know.

Red Chard and Caramelized Onions

Reviewed: Apr. 5, 2008
I have never been a fan of what I call "healthy vegetables". But, I have to admit that this was good tasting. My husband just loved the taste of the dish. No capers, kept everything else but added no salt. The Kalamata Olives were salty enough and they flavored the dish just right. We found fresh Kalamatas in an open deli case next to the meat dept. in our natural foods store. Be sure to let the onion carmelize, it helps with the taste of the dish. Easy to prepare, good tasting, even to me! Overall, a great recipe. Thanks

Millet-Stuffed Peppers

Reviewed: Apr. 29, 2009
This recipe is good as is, if you don't like spicy food. Otherwise, add some spice to it, we used chili powder, cumin, and some Italian Seasoning--a lot of all 3. You don't need any more salt. Perhaps pepper, garlic, and/or onion. After we put it in the peppers, I topped them with some bread crumbs and last but not least, some shredded parmesan cheese. That was the only cheese I had in the house. We don't microwave anything, so, we baked it at 350 for 30 min., the recipe says until tender. It came out real good with the suggestions made here. Thanks Susan.

Raisin and Spice Brown Rice

Reviewed: Dec. 14, 2007
We thought this was very good and will definitely make again, with these improvements. A whole onion and much more celery, increase the spice to 1 tsp., Don't overcook it. When you add the spices, you're just toasting to bring out the flavor, the longer you cook after adding the spices, the more flavor you lose. Next time we will also increase the amount of soy sauce and raisins-we love raisins. They add a nice touch of sweetness. Very tasty dish, am looking forward to next time.

Carrots with Dried Cherries

Reviewed: Nov. 15, 2007
Normally I don't like carrots, in any form, and my husband only likes them raw. Not cooked. So we very rarely have carrots in the house, because he is the only one who eats them. That is changing with this recipe. I am eating these as I write this--I might have to make a second batch for him when he gets home. Thanks for a great recipe!! I made it like written, came out great. I forgot, I subbed cranberries as I did not have cherries.

No-Bake Cranberry Sauce Pie

Reviewed: Nov. 23, 2007
This is good. The next time I make this I will use my hand mixer to mix together the canned cranberry sauce and the jello. I didn't do that, just used a spoon, and now I have big bites of the canned cranberry sauce. I want it spread out more evenly. Otherwise, a good no bake pie, especially for the holidays.

Pumpkin Oatmeal

Reviewed: Feb. 17, 2010
This is simply great! I got a can of canned pumpkin from my food bank and didn't know what to do with it, outside of the typical stuff. I also didn't want to buy anything extra just to use this up and I didn't! The only suggestion my husband could come up with was add some salt. I wasn't able to buy vanilla silk, but I plan to do so soon. Thanks for a great new way to make oatmeal.

Cornmeal Cookies II

Reviewed: Feb. 11, 2010
These cookies are good: I didn't change or add anything. Where the recipe calls for butter flavor extract, I just used the same amount of butter. I didn't have any butter extract. Be sure after everything is added that you mix from the bottom of the bowl up. I used my hands to be sure that all the cornmeal was mixed in equally. The time to bake these was not mentioned so, I used a stopwatch and did 2 batches of them at 14 min., and the final batch at 13 min. Both batches came out great. I wouldn't bake them any longer than 14 min. These are also good dipped in milk after they have cooled.

Hearty Harvest and Ham Stew

Reviewed: Nov. 5, 2007
We thought it was going to be bland, turned out we wrong. It is not spicy, but, very, very tasty. We really enjoyed it. Serve with a Rye bread for a filling meal. The ham I used was Black Forest-organic. The ham is a big part of this dish. Get the best quality ham you can, you won't regret it. The salt I added was 1/2 tsp. and ground up a bunch of black pepper. It wasn't salty, which I thought it was going to be. All around great recipe-Thanks

Sesame Stick Snacks

Reviewed: Jan. 1, 2008
I give this recipe three stars, because when I first put it on my board to roll it, it was all crumbly-wouldn't stay together at all. I had to add several T's. of milk to get it to stay together. As for as taste goes, I'm baking the first sheet now. Not at all impressed. I will not be making these again.

Pears Panos

Reviewed: Nov. 10, 2007
These were the perfect ending to our meal tonight! The recipe was just right. To top them, I whipped some cream. We don't have any liquer in our house at all, so I did what another reviewer did-left it out. Thanks for the good recipe.

Fresh Cranberry Salad

Reviewed: Oct. 29, 2007
This recipe is very good. I had gotten tired of cranberry sauce-it is generally too sweet, so I was leary of this recipe, but I love cranberries so I tried it and I am glad I did. The amount of the ingred. is just right. It is tart, but not "pucker your mouth" tart. Thanks for a new favorite at our table.
