Slow Cooker Tapioca Pudding

Reviewed: Mar. 28, 2010
I made this yesterday and it was awesome and extremely easy to make in the slow cooker. I doubled the recipe and used large pearl tapioca which I did not soak overnight. Followed the directions to a tee. We used 2% milk (we call it whitewash) and added 3 tsp. of vanilla extract (double batch). I cooked it on low and it was finished in about 3 1/2 hours. The one thing everyone should know is, it has to be stirred every half hour. Make sure to scrape the sides and bottom of the slow cooker otherwise it sticks. We liked it a lot and will be making it again and again. ADDENDUM: I made this again and used 1% milk. Had to cook a little longer but was just as good. Also, used the large pearl tapioca again. Don't forget to scrape sides and bottom every half hour so it doesn't stick!

Hungarian Goulash III

Reviewed: Feb. 3, 2011
We made this two nights ago for dinner and really enjoyed it. The only thing different I did was not add salt to the recipe (Hubs is salt restricted). I, on the other hand, am not salt restricted so I added it after it was on my plate. I leave you with one last comment - YUM! Thanks for sharing this delicious recipe.

Italian Sausage Soup II

Reviewed: Nov. 18, 2010
Great recipe with unusual spices. As suggested, we added Pecorino Romano grated cheese to the finished product and believe it or not it brought everything together. Had to add more chicken stock because hubby likes liquidy soup. Yum!

Ghirardelli® Dark Chocolate Truffles

Reviewed: Dec. 27, 2010
If you don't like dark chocolate then this recipe is not for you. It's an easy recipe. I did doubled the recipe and suffice it to say I have them coming out the armpits. As other reviewers have stated, I used a small cookie scoop (about 1 tsp.) and left the bottoms flat. Unfortunately, they were in the fridge over night and the next day they were hard as rocks so I left them sitting for about an hour and started scooping from the outside of the mixture. We rolled them in toasted coconut, roasted hazelnuts, pecans and unsweetened cocoa. The flat bottoms sit nicely in the mini baking cups and don't roll all over. Delicious and very filling.

Pignoli Cookies I

Reviewed: Dec. 8, 2010
This is the third time I've made this recipe. The first time my mom got me almond paste from a bakery, the second time I bought canned paste at the supermarket and this year we got Solo almond paste at the supermarket. If you have to buy it at the supermarket, my advice is to buy Solo (as suggested by another reviewer). More tips: I always use parchment paper, even for the rest of my cookies (slide right off). Bake pignolis til very lightly browned around edge (they won't be too gummy). Make sure you have enough pignoli nuts (I bought 2 bags and had very little left over) and those that were left over I ground up and used as topping for the cookie press cookies. All in all this is an outstanding recipe and I thank you Adele for sharing this recipe.

Pan Cream Puff

Reviewed: Jun. 1, 2009
Just made this today on my new gas range (wanted to try out the oven). I've only got one thing to say...WOW!!! This recipe was not only easy but delicious. I didn't use chocolate syrup simply because neither I or hubby like it. Sliced some strawberries and put them on top. I did have to increase the baking time for the cream puff to 35 mins. and it turned out a beautiful golden brown. It's a "keeper recipe" and I thank you for sharing it Zipity.

Turkey a la Oscar

Reviewed: Nov. 8, 2007
We had this for last night's dinner and it not only was picture perfect but also delicious. As suggested by a prior reviewer, I used skinless boneless chicken breasts which had to be pounded a bit and fresh asparagus cooked in the microwave. The chicken had to be cooked more than 3 minutes on each side. I used Knoor's Hollandaise sauce made as directed on the packet but next time will add a little lemon juice. Easy to make and totally delish.

Roasted-Vegetable Stock

Reviewed: Nov. 1, 2012
We found this recipe to be absolutely delicious. Followed the recipe as written but without adding salt (hubs is on salt free diet). It definitely needs salt. The flavor was outstanding. I used dried thyme leaves as opposed to ground thyme. I also made a double batch and got about a quart of broth. Thanks, Sarah, for sharing this wonderful recipe.

Baking Mix Blackberry Cobbler

Reviewed: Jul. 16, 2011
I made this recipe exactly as written the first time and found it to be too sweet even though it had a good flavor. Just experimented with it last night. I used the cake portion of the recipe and instead of the fruit/sugar/water portion added a 29 oz. can of drained peaches and lightly sprinkled a brown sugar/cinnamon mixture on top before baking. Everyone really enjoyed it. I think the next time I make it I'll try some type of fresh fruit just thrown in. Easy to make and thanks for sharing this recipe.

California Grilled Veggie Sandwich

Reviewed: Aug. 24, 2010
When I told the hubs we were having grilled veggie sandwiches for dinner tonight he was extremely skeptical. I made two changes. First off, there wasn't a loaf of focaccia bread to be found in the entire area so we used rolls. Secondly, neither of us like feta cheese so we used crumbled extra sharp cheddar cheese. Everything else remained the same. After his second sandwich, I was informed he would eat this meal anytime. Everything complemented each other. YUM!!!!

We had these tonight for dinner along with freshly picked Jersey tomatoes from our garden and pork chops cooked on the grill. I used butter for the shortening followed the directions to a "T". They were insanely delicious. Thanks for sharing Joan.

Cool Whipped Frosting

Reviewed: May 4, 2009
My cousin gave me this recipe last year. Since then that's all I've been using on my cakes. If you don't like that sickening sweet icing, this is the recipe to use. It's light and tasty. Tonight I used chocolate pudding.

Slow Cooker Baby Back Ribs

Reviewed: Aug. 16, 2013
First time for doing ribs in the slow cooker. WOW! They were fall off the bones tender...even that little piece on the end that always turns out dry. I did use beer instead of water for an added flavor. If I did have anything negative to say it would be that it could have used a little more flavor but the beauty of this recipe is it's begging to be tweaked with additional spices. I cooked it on low for 8 hours and only baked it for 10 minutes with the BBQ sauce. Still moist and delish. Thanks, Nora, for sharing.

Orzo and Rice

Reviewed: Jan. 27, 2011
Made this last night for dinner. We found it to be a little bland (didn't use bouillon cube - to much sodium for a sodium restricted diet). Substituted 2 cans of chicken broth for water. To alleviate some of the blandness we topped it off with some pecorino romano grated cheese. Was pretty good with cheese on top. Thanks for sharing.

Carrot Burgers

Reviewed: Jan. 26, 2011
We made these for last night's dinner and they were delicious. I did omit the sugar and salt from the recipe (hubs is on salt and sugar restricted diet). Didn't need the sugar, carrots are sweet on their own, and I put salt on my own burger. I put everything through the food processor so no need to cook carrots. Also, processed the cornflakes. It takes a little longer to run everything through the processor but well worth the effort. My patties held together like they had superglue mixed in. I found that 2 cups of whole cornflakes are a lot less than 2 cups of crushed/ground cornflakes. Great for a meatless dinner. Thanks for sharing this recipe Phyllis.

Grandma VanDoren's White Bread

Reviewed: Sep. 26, 2010
I just made this the other day and it was only my second attempt to make homemade bread. Two of my three loaves flopped (my fault) but the third one rose. The bread is simply delicious. Thanks for sharing this recipe.

Quick Quiche

Reviewed: Aug. 31, 2010
This quiche was delicious and extremely easy to make. First time I made a crustless quiche and there are so many different ways to tweek this recipe. Needless to say, the hubs and I both enjoyed tonight's dinner tremendously. Thanks for sharing.

Best Cream Of Broccoli Soup

Reviewed: Oct. 30, 2009
Just made this for dinner last night. i followed the recipe exactly as written. Used butter (notice the difference between ingredients and directions). The only change i made was I used a hand mixer to puree it instead of a food processor. It was delicious and hubby said the recipe was a keeper. Thanks for sharing.

Melt In Your Mouth Blueberry Cake

Reviewed: Aug. 4, 2009
I followed the directions exactly for the cake. The only change I made was to double the recipe because I wanted to make it in a bundt pan. I used a 12 cup bundt pan, anything smaller and the cake will overflow. it was a delicious and thanks for sharing.

BAKER'S Peanut Butter Oatmeal Chocolate Chunk Cookies

Reviewed: Jun. 21, 2009
I made these today just to try out our new gas range to see if they would come out an even golden brown. We really liked them and I sent some over to our neighbor. They liked them so much she asked for the recipe. This is a keeper.
