Slow Cooker Blackberry Pork Tenderloin

Reviewed: Dec. 13, 2010
Fabulous, even with my modifications. I got home late and had to cook it on High. Used the probe, cooked to 165*F and it took about 2.5 hours. I am a HUGE fan of wine reductions but wasn't sure if my kids would like it full-on, so I poured the cooking liquid in a saucepan and added about 1/4c red wineong with the blackberries, midway through. Reduced on med-high. Added some additional rosemary, black pepper, and ~2T of butter. Yummy! I think that I would have preferred the wine reduction more but my 7yo and 3yo seemed to enjoy this lighter version. Next time I will try the full-on wine reduction sauce in addition to searing the meat first. Thank you for the great recipe.

Oreo® Cookie Cake

Reviewed: Dec. 31, 2009
My husband made this tonight with my 4yo daughter. He followed the recipe excatly with the exception of 1) using a trifle bowl and doing 2 of each layer, and 2) he used chocolate instant pudding. All 3 of my kids loved this although they couldn't finish their given serving...I am assuming it was too rich with all of the whipped cream. It was very messy looking once my husband satrted serving but otherwise looked very yummy! Thank you for the super easy recipe that allows for little helper hands. Happy New Years!

New Year's Day Black-Eyed Peas

Reviewed: Dec. 31, 2009
I made this tonight with the thought that it might taste better the second day. It actually tastes VERY GOOD tonight...can't wait to eat it tomorrow. I would give it 5 stars but I had to make some modifications due to what I had on hand. I used 2 cans of rinsed black eyed peas (what husband brought home one day last week), about a cup of dry vermouth for flavor (didn't want to use chicken or beef stock for the "luck" reasons stated by a previous reviewer...I obviously used canned peas, though), 5 cloves of garlic, over 2 cups of cubed smoked ham steak, a fair amount of Cajun seasoning, about 4oz of diced green chilies, and about a 1/2c of ham drippings from the Christmas ham for added pork flavor. I used diced tomatoes and did not puree them. I also did not add any additional water. Again, we are looking forward to eating it tomorrow. Thank you for the recipe.

Creamy Vegetable Soup

Reviewed: Feb. 5, 2009
I made some adjustments and it turned out fine for us. I didn't use the white potatoes. Shredded one sweet potato and diced the other 2. I used 2t cumin, the recc amt of celery seed (would up it next time), used some coriander, and some curry. IMO, it still needed a lot of flavor. I cooked it at 3hrs on High and then an additional 30 minutes more after the addition to the milk. I think that the 8-10 hours on Low is WAY too long, especially for the broccoli, which was most likely the contributing factor to the bitterness that people were complaining about. I think that 3 hrs MAX on High should be plenty. I'll try it one more time because it was easy enough to make (prep took 20 minutes from start to finish) and nutritious with the variety of vegetables, but it wasn't one of DH's favorites. Picky 3yo DD ate it all, though, which warrants 4 stars for me.

German Apple Cake I

Reviewed: Sep. 22, 2008
Okay...what did I do wrong?? I kept reading about how forgiving this recipe was but I still managed to goof it up. I DID make the changes that a lot of people made and raved about - 1/4c oil, 3/4c applesauce, 1/2 white whole wheat and 1/2 white flour,and decreased sugar to 1c, plus 1/4c brown sugar. I also added an extra 1/2c apples and an extra teaspoon of cinnamon, which should not have affected the recipe that much. The batter was not extremely thick (it was doable) and the top was not "cookie crunchy" like I was reading about. The one thing that did happen right was that it turned soggy within 15 hours ~ like other reviewers mentioned. Oh...I also sprayed with Pam and used sugar instead of flour to keep cake from sticking. Help...what did I do wrong to such a "forgiving" recipe???
