Slow Cooker Lasagna

Reviewed: Oct. 19, 2011
This was outstanding and we will definitely be making this again. Like some of the other reviewers, I added onion and garlic to the ground beef and also added italian seasoning. I used canned tomatoes and blended it in a blender. Added the tomatoes, tomato paste and about 1 cup of store bought sauce I had leftover in fridge. I used a 2 1/2 qt slow cooker and ended up using all of the sauce and filling but only 1/2 the box of noodles. I only used 1/2 the mozzarella cheese in the filling (and threw in some more italian seasoning for flavor) and when I did the layering, I sprinkled additional mozzarella cheese on top of the cheese mixture. I used an entire 16oz container of cottage cheese because I don't use it for anything else so I didn't want leftovers and I did add 2 eggs as others suggested. Cooked on hihg for 2 1/2 hours and then lowered for 1 1/2 hours more. It was PERFECT! Noodles were not mushy (not even the leftovers the next day!) and it filled the crockpot to the rim. Next time, I think I will use the 6 qt crock pot I have and double the filling and meat. The meat sauce was a littel runny as I spooned it on to the cheese but I think that helped the noodles and was the reason I didn't have to add extra water. Delicious!!! Thanks so much!

Chocolate Ganache

Reviewed: Oct. 9, 2011
If I could give this recipe 10 stars I would. It is so easy and I have thrown out all other frosting recipes in my cookbook. It is a rich chocolate glaze that melts in your mouth. If you let it sit and cool, it will be the best chocolate frosting you will ever make. I've had tons of requests for this and it never disappoints. A no-brainer recipe. Thank you so much!!!

Guacamole

Reviewed: Jun. 10, 2011
I have never made guacamole without mayo before. It was OUTSTANDING!!! I will never make another guac again. I made the recipe exactly as is. I had some guests over and they practically licked the bowl clean. Serve this with D's Famous Salsa and YOU...ARE...SET!!!

Jagerschnitzel

Reviewed: Jul. 11, 2010
This was great! Did remind me of stroganoff but more mushroomy! Make sure you measure the salt. I just sprinkled it on and it was a little saltier than I like. The mushrooms add their own salty flavor. Will be keeping this one handy. Fast & easy!

Quick Chick!

Reviewed: Mar. 18, 2010
I doubled the gravy part, used 2 dry packages of gravy and doubled the water. It was very tasty. My husband said that this would make the absolute best Chicken Tortilla soup. I have to agree and have re-labeled it as such in my cookbook. We took leftover chicken meat the next day and threw it in the leftover "gravy" with some tortillas and had a great soup! Thanks. The actual chickent was good, too. Very moist. But I'm keeping this filed with the soups.

Chewy Chocolate Chip Oatmeal Cookies

Reviewed: Sep. 11, 2009
These are BY FAR the best oatmeal cookies I have ever had. I made the adjustments as others recommended: 1/2 cup butter & 1/2 cup shortening, 1 1/2 cups flour, 1 tsp baking soda, 1/4 tsp salt and cinnamon (just sprinkled it in). I also refrigerated the dough for 30 minutes prior to baking. Super moist and not dry. I did not add nuts and doubled the chips but I know this would have been excellent with both. Definitely keeping in my recipe box! Thanks so much!!! I have a feeling we'll be eating a lot more oatmeal cookies this fall & winter.

Cousin Cosmo's Greek Chicken

Reviewed: Dec. 29, 2008
If I could give this more than 5 stars I would. My husband decided to give this recipe a try. I was surprised since he hates feta cheese and spinach. I loved it!!! The chicken wasn't dry. You can barely taste the feta (it's like it melts away into the dish) and each breast cooks in this amazing broth. I'm not a big fan of cooked spinach but this was wonderful. My 6yr-old wanted seconds! I hope my husband makes this again. Side note: I ate mine over couscous and it was WONDERFUL! Pour the liquid over and enjoy. I could have eaten this for 3 or 4 meals straight. Thank you so much for this great and easy recipe!

Storybook Gingerbread Men

Reviewed: Dec. 29, 2008
This was my very first time making gingerbread but they came out absolutely fantastic. I know I like my gingerbread a little spicier so I took the advice of others and added ginger, cinnamon, allspice, cloves and nutmeg on top of the spices in the recipe. The dough was sticky. I suggest only rolling out a small portion and keeping the rest refrigerated until ready to use. If it gets too sticky, put it back in the fridge and pull some from the chilled portion. I've tried different types of icing but I like Paula Deen's for decorating cookies. 3/4 cup powdered sugar and add 1 Tbl milk. Mix. If you need more milk, add by the dropful. A little milk goes a long way.

Beef Pot Pie III

Reviewed: Aug. 20, 2008
This is a great pie if you have leftover beef. I cut up 2 lbs of leftover roast and put 1/2 in pie crust. As someone else had suggested, I took 2 cups of beef broth and threw in cut up carrots, frozen peas and 2 cups of frozen hash browns. I boiled it together and strained it leaving the little bit of liquid still in the pan. Pour 1/2 over meat in crust. To drippings add 1 can of cream of mushroom soup and 1 pkg of brown gravy mix. (Another suggestion) Pour 1/2 into crust and repeat last layers. Cover with remaining crust and bake. It was wonderful and VERY EASY. Can't beat that. Thank you so much!

Baked Fettuccine Lasagna

Reviewed: Feb. 28, 2008
This was WONDERFUL!!! I didn't have fettucine noodles so I par-boiled lasagna noodles and pulled them into strips. It worked perfectly. I did not use all the cheese the recipe called for and it was still enough. My husband HATES mushrooms and olives but I decided to throw them in anyway and he LOVED it. He asked for it again 3 days later. This is by far the EASIEST AND QUICKEST recipe for lasagna I have ever made and I will DEFINITELY be making this again. Thank you so much. This recipe made me feel like I can cook again since the last few recipes I've tried were quite as good as I had hoped for.

Apple Pie by Grandma Ople

Reviewed: Nov. 7, 2007
This pie was outstanding! And so weird, too. I kept re-reading the instructions to make sure that I read them correctly. It seemed strange to me to pour the hot mixture over the top crust. I used 1/2 Gala apples and 1/2 Granny Smith. Next time I will only use the Granny Smith. I added the spices and vanilla as others recommended. Definitely a keeper. This one is going to show up on the Thanksgiving pie table. Thanks so much.

Chicken Tortilla Soup V

Reviewed: Jun. 20, 2008
This was wonderful! I was expecting a little creamier soup but the flavors were outstanding. I also threw in leftover rotissiere chicken I had in the fridge. It wasn't too spicy (if you have little ones you're concerned about) but my husband and I spiced our own bowls up. We ate it for 4 days straight. Will definitely make in future!

Thunderbird Stew

Reviewed: Oct. 2, 2007
This was wonderful! Will definitely make again. It was so easy and I always have the ingredients on hand. I used chuck steaks instead of roast which are thinner. I also reduced the apple juice to 1 cup and added 1/2 cup of water with beef boullion sprinkled in. I cooked it in the oven and it came out perfectly. I also added baby carrots the last 30 minutes. Will try adding potatoes, too, next time. Thanks so much!

Risotto alla Milanese

Reviewed: Oct. 9, 2011
This is a very rich dish. My husband makes it whenever he wants to "fancy" up the meal. Not difficult to make and goes with anything. Chicken, fish, beef. An excellent side dish that will impress your friends.

D's Famous Salsa

Reviewed: Jun. 10, 2011
I would have given this 10 stars if I could. ABSOLUTELY the best salsa I've ever had. I was just hoping for close to the salsa from my favorite restaurant but it was better. I used the Mexican stewed tomatoes, as suggested, but will probably add a chile to it next time for just a little heat! The flavor was stupendous. Thanks so much. I'll be sharing this with everyone I know!

Make Ahead Breakfast Casserole

Reviewed: Nov. 19, 2006
This was great. I've already bought the ingredients to make it again. We brought it with us on a trip as an "already done-pop it in the oven" thing so we could spend more time with our guests. The kids were a little leary about eating it but once they tasted it, they loved it. The 7 year old had 3 helpings. I left out the mushrooms and spinach b/c I wasn't sure if everyone liked it but I'm sure it would have tasted great included. I also used restaurant style croutons which were larger and pre-seasoned. They come in 6 oz boxes and that's just the right amount to cover the bottom of your dish.

No-Noodle Zucchini Lasagna

Reviewed: Aug. 29, 2012
Fantastic recipe. Used store bought sauce but added tomato paste. Still came out a runny mess (even after baking zucchini strips in oven as others recommended) but it tasted out of this world. Used both ground beef and turkey sausage crumbles. My 10 year old and husband had seconds and my daughter asked for leftovers the next day. Will definitely make again. Just gotta figure out how to make it less runny.

Chocolate Rum Cake

Reviewed: Aug. 28, 2007
This cake is WONDERFUL! Thank you so much for the recipe. I modified just a little...I didn't have chocolate pudding so I used French Vanilla. I don't think it really matters. I greased and floured my bundt pan but used cocoa powder instead of flour. I used 1/2 cp brown sugar and 1/2 cp white and added chocolate chips to the batter after I poured it into the pan. Everything was perfect. I thought that the rum flavor in the sauce might be overpowering for the "non-alcoholic" eaters because it smelled so strong but the taste was superb. People who didn't like rum said that they could hardly taste it and has a second helping. Because I was afraid it would be strong, I cut the cake before saucing and set 1/2 aside. Then I poured the sauce over the rest. It looked great, tasted great and I made 2 in one week because my husband begged me for more. So easy! Definitely a keeper!
