Easy Spicy Thai Slow Cooker Chicken

Reviewed: Jan. 20, 2011
I did enjoy this dish very much. However, next time, I will make one modification - I will use half the amount of Asian Dressing. That's more than enough. Normally I don't modify a recipe until after I've tried it as is, but I had to make two changes, one out of neccessity and the other by choice. First, I didn't have any ginger-garlic paste so I used 1 tbsp each of minced galic cloves and minced ginger. Second, there were no vegetables! Lots of chicken but no veggies. So I threw in 2 diagonally sliced carrots, 1 large rough chopped onion, and 8 oz fresh button mushrooms, then layered the chicken over it and then the sauce. An hour before it was done I tossed in 1 rough chopped red pepper. Wonderful!

Neat Sloppy Joes

Reviewed: Jan. 20, 2011
This was incredibly good! Very easy to make and very tasty. I didn't use the celery as I can't stand celery ... noxious weed that it is; so I subbed green pepper in its place. The only other change I would make to it would be to add an extra tablespoon of vinegar to give it a little more edge. This is a definite keeper!!!

Tuscan Soup

Reviewed: Sep. 20, 2010
This soup was great!!! I did drain the sausage which I am glad I did, because it was fatty! I made a couple of changes - I used kale instead of spinach because that's what Olive Garden uses and I truly enjoy that. I also used 3 extra cups of broth because I found that 6 cups just wasn't enough. Also, I didn't have evaporated milk so I used 2% milk. Unfortunately 1/2 of 2% milk just doesn't cut it. I actually added a total of 3 cups of milk. Made the soup JUST like OG!

Slow Cooker Nacho Chicken and Rice Wraps

Reviewed: Sep. 18, 2010
This recipe was fairly good. It had lots of flavour and was really easy to put together. It could even be eaten on its own, without the tortillas.

Pork Chops a la Slow Cooker

Reviewed: Sep. 5, 2010
This is one of the easiest, tastiest ways to prepare pork chops. A definite keeper. The pork chops always come out tender and savoury. Served with creamed(whipped) potatoes and a veggie, you have a perfect dinner.

Caramel Frosting V

Reviewed: Sep. 5, 2010
I would really love to give this recipe a higher rating because it is SO DELICIOUS, but I can't justify doing that because the results aren't "as advertised". I will definitely make this again but I will not be using it as a frosting - only as a filling. The only way to use this as a frosting is to make sure whatever you frost remains refrigerated at all times - it can never come to room temp or it will simply "melt" off the baked good. I tried all the tricks that were suggested and the best I could do was light and fluffy when refrigerated. Basically - perfect for a cake or cupcake filling - just not the best for a room temp frosting.

Coconut Rice

Reviewed: Jul. 31, 2010
This Coconut Rice is delicious! Normally I don't make changes, but after reading previous reviews, I did make some changes. First of all, I reduced the amount of rice to 1-1/4cups instead of 2 cups. Also, I love curry so I doubled the amount of curry. I thought the coconut flavour really came through - I know other reviewers had trouble with that. Definitely a keeper!

Grilled Sausage with Potatoes and Green Beans

Reviewed: Jul. 8, 2010
This was really good! I had to make one change - which was to use fresh Italian sausage instead of the smoked sausage (not a big fan) and it turned out well. I wanted more bang for my buck veggie-wise, so I added fresh button mushrooms and sliced red onion to the packets too ... wow! The veggies were just amazing, particularly the mushrooms! A definite keeper!

Totally Tangy Baked French Fries

Reviewed: Jun. 25, 2010
These fries were good. I guess I was expecting more because of all the 5 stars. It was an easy recipe to make, the flavour was pretty good, but not anything "great". Some of the topping got a bit burnt even following the directions to a "T". When I make these again, I will precook the wedges in the microwave a bit, then toss them with the topping, then bake them to get the crispy texture. Hopefully that will make them more 5 star-worthy.

Taco Stuffed Shells

Reviewed: Jun. 3, 2010
This recipe was excellent! I loved it! So easy and so amazingly flavourful. The only change I made was to use refried beans that had green chiles in them too, just because I like my food spicy. I did end up with left over filling, so I froze with plans to use it on nachos some night.

Tender Italian Baked Chicken

Reviewed: May 21, 2010
This turned out really well. The chicken was moist and tender and the beading kept it's dry texture. A definite keeper.

Honey Ribs

Reviewed: May 15, 2010
This was a great sauce! Very tasty. After reading some past reviews about the thinness of the sauce, I decided to cut down on the amount of beef broth, but other than that, I followed the recipe exactly. It was great! I think I will try this next on a steak as a marinade before grilling.

Ann's Dirty Rice

Reviewed: Apr. 28, 2010
This was really tasty given that the only seasonings are salt and pepper! It's so very simple, incredibly easy to make, and unbelievably good. I think the next time I make it I will experiment with some Cajun seasoning but otherwise, it's perfect the way it is.

Slow Cooker Italian Chicken Alfredo

Reviewed: Apr. 20, 2010
This dish is pretty tasty but ... it definitely needs more garlic. It would also benefit from sliced onion and extra mushrooms. UPDATE - So when I reheated this for leftovers I added about 1/4 cup of Kraft Calorie-Wise Dressing, 1/2 c up diced red onion, 1/2 cup diced red pepper and two more garlic cloves minced. SOOOO much better this time around!

Mini Pumpkin Whoopie Pies

Reviewed: Apr. 17, 2010
WOW! So delicious! So easy to make despite the the number of ingredients. The only word of caution I have is the cream cheese filling is extremely runny made as is, even after being refrigerated for 3 hours. Next time I make these (and I will!) I will add more confectioners sugar while mixing the filling to stiffen it a bit more.

Irish Cream Brownies

Reviewed: Apr. 17, 2010
These brownies are different from the norm. Definitely a special occasion brownie. They were easy to make, but just a heads up - the frosting/topping is very runny. It needs to set up in the fridge before being cut.

Ranch Burgers

Chocolate Mint Cookies I

Reviewed: Apr. 8, 2010
These little gems are wonderful! So easy to mix! up. I used my small scoop to form the balls and that cuts the work in 1/2. I didn't have Andes style mints so I used Mint White Chocolate wafers. They look so pretty and taste delicious! A definite keeper. But because they are so rich, I will probably reserve them for special occassions rather than use it as an every day cookie.
