Slow Cooker Cranberry Pork

Reviewed: Oct. 19, 2008
This sounded so strange to me, but I went ahead and tried it, and I'm so glad I did! My family loves it. I use a sweet onion (like a walla-walla) instead of a regular onion, as I find it's a little sweeter, and a little less overpowering that way. I also like to use whole cranberry sauce. The whole cranberries floating in the sauce are a nice touch. Also, I prefer cooking it for four hours on high instead of for 8 hours on low. It is still moist, but the roast stays firmer, allowing you to slice it. When you cook the pork for 8 hours, it tends to shred, and you lose that roast consistency. This recipe yields a lot of sauce - great for pouring over the meat, and also over mashed potatoes or rice! It heats up well the next day.

Breaded Hamburgers

Reviewed: Oct. 19, 2008
Surprisingly good spin on the traditional hamburger. These come out yummy and moist. My husband and I just love them! I actually use more than one onion so that I can completely line the pan. I also make sure the rings are two or three layers deep. This keeps them from breaking down, so your burgers won't drop into the water. I never would have thought to cook burgers this way, but I really like it!

Lentil and Sausage Soup

Reviewed: Oct. 19, 2008
I think I would actually give this 3 1/2 or 3 3/4 stars. It was good, but I prefer my lentil soup to be thicker. I like the lentils to break down. With this recipe, I could see all the individual lentils. They softened up and tasted fine, but they didn't break down the way I expected them to. This was my first time making lentil soup, so maybe you need a different type of lentil or different preparation to get the kind of consistency I was expecting. The ingredients are very nice, but the soup will definitely need some salt for flavor.

Beefaroni

Reviewed: Oct. 19, 2008
This isn't gourmet, but that's fine by me and my family! I didn't have tomato sauce on hand, but I did have marinara sauce, so I used that, and it was great. I also used a cheese mixture that had cheddar, mozzarrella and monterey jack. In future, I might use all whites cheeses because I find they are less greasy when they melt. White cheese like mozzarella also fits with the marinara. I also didn't have macaroni noodles,so I used penne, which was just fine. It came out almost like a baked ziti the way I made it. Very good, basic recipe that's easy to change up!

French Toast I

Reviewed: Apr. 12, 2008
I really loved this recipe. I thought it was quite flavorful, although, I admit, I didn't measure the spices very "exactly." I think I probably used more than the prescribed amount. What I like about this recipe is that it does not come out too thick or too eggy, and it has a nice, sweet flavor. I used "french toast bread" that I found at Safeway. It's thick, like Texas Toast, and already had some very light spices in it. Texas Toast would, I'm sure, work well, too. Make sure to use a thick bread so that it holds up well. I think the "medium-high" setting recommended in this recipe is too high. I put my burner on a medium high setting (6 out of 10 on my range), and it burned the outside of the toast without cooking the inside. I turned it down to about 2 or 3, and it worked perfectly. I used a non-stick pan and oil to keep the french toast from sticking. These cooked in minutes for me, and were delicious!

Dorm Room Chili Mac

Reviewed: Feb. 4, 2008
My husband loves this, and it's so simple. You can use whatever kind of chili you want - that's part of the beauty of it. This is a great staple for when you just don't have the time to cook a big dinner, but you feel like something a little heartier than plain mac and cheese.

Cheddar Broccoli Chicken and Mashed Potatoes

Reviewed: Feb. 4, 2008
This recipe is so yummy! I couldn't find broccoli cheese soup, so I bought one can of cream of broccoli, and one can of cheese soup and mixed them together. That actually worked well because you can customize how much of the cheese you want. I served this recipe over four-cheese mashed potatoes (a mix). My family loved it, including my two-year-old!

Chicken Enchiladas IV

Reviewed: Feb. 4, 2008
These are pretty good, and not difficult to make. I used enchilada sauce instead of salsa because that just sounded better to me. I boiled the chicken just in water, but I think next time I'll boil it in chicken broth, maybe with some veggies/spices to give it more flavor. Boiling does work well for shredding the chicken.

Tomato-Cream Sauce for Pasta

Reviewed: Feb. 4, 2008
I really love this pasta sauce! I add an extra half can of the tomatoes so that it goes a little further. I add steamed peas, broccoli and chicken to some penne pasta, toss it all together with the sauce, and it's excellent! My family loves it!

Slow Cooker Carnitas

Reviewed: Sep. 28, 2007
I really like this recipe. 10 hours was a bit long for me, so I decided to cook it on high for about 5 1/2 or 6 hours instead. It turned out great! The meat was so tender and easy to shred. I don't enjoy super-spicy food, so I appreciated the mild flavor of these carnitas. My two-year-old enjoyed it, too! I could really taste the cinammon (without it being overpowering), and it really blended nicely with the other spices. I put the pork in some flour tortillas with some corn, sour cream, and cheese (my husband also seasoned it with some taco sauce), and it was great! A big hit.
