Banana Bread - Quick Bread for Machines

Reviewed: Nov. 18, 2007
Indescribably delicious! I usually make banana bread by hand, so I was a touch skeptical about using the bread machine, but it came out dense and golden and smelled wonderful while baking. I began with the recipe Dee provided, then I added an extra banana, 1/2 tsp. ground cinnamon, a splash of vanilla, and in lieu of nuts, a heaping tbsp. of poppy seeds. I also added 4 oz. of plain applesauce (one of those individual cups). I used a Breadman Rapid Deluxe machine, which does not allow you to stop and then bake. Instead, I used the 1 pound setting and the "fruit/nut bread" option. It takes about 3 hours and 15 minutes to produce the loaf, but it mixes and stops and mixes and stops: the actual baking part is about an hour long. The banana bread had a more cakelike than breadlike texture (due to the addition of the applesauce) and was very dense, but oh so good! I love the ease and convenience of this recipe and I will use it often. A word of caution: use a rubber spatula to scrape the corners during the mixing phase to integrate all of the flour (be careful of the machine's mixing paddle), or some of the dry ingredients may get stuck in the corners of the pan. Enjoy!

Quick Tuna Casserole

Reviewed: Dec. 25, 2007
As another reviewer remarked, why didn't I think of this? On a college budget, I have plenty of tuna, mac n' cheese, soup, and canned veggies. I followed the recipe (including the fried onions) and - wow! Cheap, easy, and best of all, delicious!

Slow Cooker Garlic Mashed Potatoes

Reviewed: Sep. 13, 2008
This sounded yummy, so I gave it a try. I added more garlic than suggested in the recipe (2 tsp. minced garlic instead of powder). I might add sour cream next time too, as other reviewers have done, but I can recommend this recipe with confidence! I used Russet potatoes, since I had plenty of those (peeled) and minced garlic as stated earlier, but otherwise I followed the recipe as written. I liked the outcome and will make these again. Thanks for the recipe!

Baked Slow Cooker Chicken

Reviewed: Mar. 18, 2008
Delicious! I used 1/2 cup chicken broth, potatoes, carrots and celery under the chicken instead of foil, and thyme instead of paprika. After 8 hours on low, it fell apart as soon as I touched it! Delicious, but just a bit messy. It's worth it, though. This may be the best way to cook a whole chicken EVER!

Easy Slow Cooker Chicken

Reviewed: Nov. 16, 2007
I tried this recipe with what I had on hand: broccoli cheese soup, mushroom soup, and chicken broth. I also added 1/2 tbsp. minced garlic and a package of frozen broccoli florets in with the chicken breasts and rice, and I cooked on low for 4 1/2 hours. Not bad! I might season the chicken a little more next time than with more than just salt and pepper, but for a quick and easy meal, this worked out pretty well.

Marie's Easy Slow Cooker Pot Roast

Reviewed: Nov. 4, 2007
Incredibly tender and delicious! The only modification I made here was that I didn't brown the meat first; I just put it in the slow cooker after preparing the vegetables, but it was falling-apart tender and wonderful! Everyone who ate it loved it and I'd recommend this recipe to anyone. Perfect for chilly fall evenings!

Bread Pudding II

Reviewed: Oct. 21, 2008
This is one of the easiest bread pudding recipes I've ever seen, so I gave it a try. I'm glad I did! Soooooo delicious, and so easy! I added more cinnamon and vanilla (because I love cinnamon and vanilla), but other than that I made it as written. I tried it fresh from the oven and chilled, but I like warm better, so I just warm up leftovers in the microwave. I think I'll use this bread pudding recipe from now on.

Slow Cooker Turkey Breast

Reviewed: Nov. 22, 2007
I usually cook the turkey in the oven, but this seemed like something to try. Sliced carrots and celery, some pats of butter, and, because I just couldn't bring myself to cook the turkey dry, 1/2 cup water went into the slow cooker. The onion soup went both on the turkey and in the water. One hour on high and three hours on low (for a three-pound breast) produced a moist, delicious turkey breast with meat that just slid off the bone and will make great leftovers. Definitely a keeper!

Slow Cooker Oats

Reviewed: Aug. 25, 2014
I made this last night for breakfast this morning. As I sit here eating this, I think it's a good recipe, but I made a change which I regret. I followed the recipe exactly as far as proportions, but instead of water I added half water, half almond milk. I dislike the taste of almond milk, and I hate wasting food, so I was trying to find a use for the almond milk. Another reviewer used almond milk, so I tried it. I can still taste the almond milk. I was hoping the apple, raisins, and cinnamon would mask it. They did, but not enough. I will make this again, but I will use only water. I still gave the recipe five stars because of the ease of the preparation, the texture when finished, and if I subtract the taste of the almond milk, I like it. Steel cut oats are a pain to make on the stove top, so slow cooking them with fresh ingredients is fantastic! The house smelled wonderful as the oats cooked, and like I said, I will make this again (and again).

Pumpkin Cake II

Reviewed: Nov. 21, 2007
I made this cake tonight as a "practice" for tomorrow night's Thanksgiving dessert, since I wasn't sure I'd like it. On the advice of other reviewers, I reduced the sugar to 2/3 cup and I used a whole 15 oz. can of pumpkin. I'm not sure this will last until tomorrow night! It is so moist and delicious it may get gobbled up tonight (pardon the pun)! But so what? It's very easy to make, and I can just whip up another one. Try this with a nice powdered sugar glaze. Simply dee-lish!
