Awesome Slow Cooker Pot Roast

Reviewed: Aug. 14, 2009
I make this all the time, but with not quite as big a roast, so I only use one can of mushroom soup. Instead of water I use about 1/2 soup can of red wine--(whatever is sitting open on the shelf--or a bottle I have deemed undrinkable for pleasure). You really don't need more liquid than this in the slow cooker and it makes great gravy. Sometimes I throw in a handful of baby carrots.

Yellow Squash Casserole

Reviewed: Jul. 26, 2009
This was excellent made despite a lot of dishes..they all clean up with a quick rinse. Perhaps some garlic next time. It got done before my entree so I just turned off the oven and left it in there and it got a nice golden crust on top--YUM! 4 cups of squash was four medium squash--to my suprise. I don't think there is any way that this would feed 10--three of us devoured over half of it.

Reviewed: Jun. 21, 2009
This was excellent! Like other reviewers I used turkey sausage, and put everything in the crock pot for the day.

Orange Cracker Apricot Chicken

Reviewed: Jun. 2, 2009
This was excellent. I use the orange peel from the jar (Spice Islands) and it works just as well as fresh. I had all the ingredients in the house which was even better!

Seared Sea Scallops

Reviewed: Jun. 1, 2009
This was excellent. At suggestion of others I deglazed the pan with some white wine, butter & lemon juice. Used a little too much lemon :( ..so had to add a tablespoon of sugar to offset the acid but it was still delicious.

Cod with Italian Crumb Topping

Reviewed: May 17, 2009
OK, I just made this winging it...brushed mayo on the fish, and dredged it in Italian bread crumbs mixed with some parmesan and garlic salt. Filets were thick so it took 30 min at 410...Excellent!

Spinach Lentil Soup

Reviewed: May 9, 2009
I just dumped all the ingredients in the crock pot and let it cook all day and it was delicious. I used opposite stock/water measurements (made broth from chicken base mix) and I added a spoonful of garlic from the jar. Watch the red pepper flakes, it was spicy!

Creamy Black Bean Dip

Reviewed: May 3, 2009
I immediately jumped on this recipe for a Sunday afternoon snack. We like balsamic vinegar so I doubled it and next time will eliminate the cider vinegar...Used garlic powder b/c I didn't have onion and will probably add more next time. Very good! (p.s. double this ...it will go fast!)

Reviewed: Apr. 19, 2009
Like little banana breads...I only added a few drops of vanilla and a dash of nutmeg. These are excellent.

Cut-Out Cookies

Reviewed: Apr. 7, 2009
Followed advice of others and creamed sugar and shortening first, added dry later. Used exact amounts of flour. Rolled like a dream and tasted like the bakery cookies we get at Publix. Glaze was good, too, and it dried well.

Sauerkraut Pork Supper

Reviewed: Mar. 15, 2009
My husband loved this! I, too, used the crock pot on low for about 8 hours and the roast was falling apart. He prefers it a little sweeter but I just let him sprinkle a little Splenda over his kraut; to me it was not actually sweet at all, but not as sour as sauerkraut alone would be.

Spicy Black Bean Cakes

Reviewed: Mar. 12, 2009
this was a great alternative to having a black bean burger at Chili's! Next time I need to use more jalapeno peppers...I cut down to one huge one and it wasn't enough. I think I would make the sauce a few hours or the night before so that the flavors would be more intense. This is a really good recipe for a vegetarian alternative.

Ultimate Chicken Fingers

Reviewed: Mar. 9, 2009
Excellent flavor and the chicken was very tender. We put the strips on buns with ranch and buffalo sauce...yum yum. They were a little "soggy" with butter, but I am from the dairy state...no amount of butter is too much (as I'm sure Paula Deen would agree!).

Tropical Salad with Pineapple Vinaigrette

Reviewed: Jan. 28, 2009
Very good...we added a little more pineapple juice to the dressing; it was a little tart for our taste!

Apple Bacon Tomato Soup

Reviewed: Jan. 28, 2009
As I was making this I was starting to wonder if it was some kind of joke...it just sounded too weird but the reviews were so good I had to try it. It was SO good...thought I was in a gourmet restaurant!! Didn't know if I was supposed to drain the beans so I didn't! Didn't seem to affect the flavor.

Lemon and Cilantro Shrimp

Reviewed: Jan. 20, 2009
I would not have tried this in a million years had it not been for the great reviews. It was awesome. I only used zest from two lemons and about 1/2 c. chopped cilantro for 24 large shrimp. SO delicious!! We served it over a salad.

Cherry Almond Coffeecake

Reviewed: Apr. 23, 2007
This recipe had mixed reviews and to be honest I don't know where the raves came from! It was just OK in my book. I used the jelly roll pan...wasn't really a coffee cake but not really a cake, either. Tasted OK but was just disappointing. Added some almond extract to the glaze

Grandma's Sugar Cookies

Reviewed: Feb. 11, 2007
The flavor of these cookies is excellent but I was disappointed with the fact that they spread out so much on the pan. Perhaps the dough for my first panful was too cold; they all ran into one another. Then I tried baking them on parchment paper...a big improvement but my hearts still did not keep their shape very well.

Dutch Apple Pie with Oatmeal Streusel

Reviewed: Sep. 4, 2006
I wanted to make the apple pie recipe on the Splenda bag but didn't have two crusts. I used that recipe for the Splenda pie and substituted top crust with this oatmeal topping using 1/4 c. of Splenda brown sugar blend instead of regular brown sugar. It was delicious!
