Zesty Slow Cooker Chicken Barbecue

Reviewed: Apr. 12, 2014
This got absolutely rave reviews!!! I actually used this recipe to cook the rabbits my wife and I raise, as follows: two whole rabbits, meat cut off the bone; browned briefly in bacon grease; placed in slow cooker with the sauce exactly as written (yes, using good BBQ sauce); cooked one hour on high and four hours on low (just due to time restriction, not any specific strategy); shredded meat with forks and left in slow cooker on warm; served on buns with coleslaw and pickles available to put on top. This was one of my very favorite rabbit recipes yet, and I will make it again and again, just like this!!

Ghirardelli® Dark Chocolate Truffles

Reviewed: Mar. 12, 2014
Heaven!!!! These were wonderful and got rave reviews from others, as well! I did find them pretty difficult to form, as they were very hard to scoop, and I actually broke a (very old) melon baller. I think next time I will try a nice cookie scoop and/or adding a little more cream to make them a little softer. I coated in each of the following toppings: cocoa powder, cocoa powder with cinnamon, powdered sugar, finely chopped toasted hazelnuts, and finely chopped toasted coconut. I think in the future I may leave out the plain cocoa powder (although I didn't mind the bitterness as some others did), and I may also try cocoa powder with some sort of chili pepper for those who like a little kick.

Slow Cooker Chicken and Dumplings

Reviewed: Feb. 15, 2014
Holy moly!!!! This was fantastic! I actually used this to cook the fresh rabbit that we raise, and it was my favorite rabbit dish yet! To be clear, I think this recipe would be excellent exactly as written, but just for my own notes, here are the small adjustments I made: Used rabbit meat (cut off the bone) instead of chicken, browned first in some bacon grease. I used one rabbit, which was not enough to equal four chicken breasts, but it still worked out great. Added a couple of chopped carrots and one chopped sweet potato. Two cans of cream of chicken (just as in recipe). Seasoned with salt and pepper, seasoned salt, cumin, garlic powder, and poultry seasoning. Used previously-made rabbit broth instead of water. Used one (16 oz) can of reduced fat buttermilk Grands. Cooked 7 hours on low, then added dumplings and cooked 1 hour on high. This is a definite keeper!!!! Update: I tried this with two rabbits instead, making a bit of a larger pot with the same amount of biscuits. My wife and I both actually liked the first iteration much better, as it was thicker, and the biscuits turned out a bit more like a crust than true dumplings. As it turns out, we really liked it this way!

Friendship Soup Mix in a Jar

Reviewed: Jan. 11, 2014
We loved this! Family members raved about the presentation of this as gifts, and we just made our first pot at home, and it was easy and delicious! We made exactly as written, except using a 14.5 ounce can of tomatoes instead of 28.

Mom's Red Scalloped Potatoes

Reviewed: Dec. 25, 2013
All of the stellar reviews for this weren't exaggerating! It was fantastic, according to both the wife and me!!! I followed the recipe exactly, with the exception of not buttering the dish first, but only because I forgot before layering in the potatoes. As it turns out, there was no need! Oh yes, I did use everyone else's "adapted directions" and extended the uncovered baking time to 20 or 25 minutes. So perfect! Also, it's just the two of us, so I actually split the recipe into two smaller pyrex dishes and put one in the freezer (pre-baking). We'll see how that one turns out another day. UPDATE- the frozen pan may have been a tiny step down from the original, but worked like a charm and was still delicious!!!

English Muffin Breakfast Strata

Reviewed: Dec. 8, 2013
This was a HUGE hit with the whole family, adults and kids alike! My 8-year-old niece said, "Things that look like this are usually gross, but this is really good!" :) I used sage sausage and omitted the butter, but otherwise followed it to a T (with one package of english muffins, of course). So yummy!

Grandma's Green Bean Casserole

Reviewed: Dec. 1, 2013
Yum, yum, yum! Based on other reviews, I used fresh green beans and steamed them beforehand. I also sauteed the onions first. This was much better than cream of mushroom soup green bean casserole!

Yummy Sweet Potato Casserole

Reviewed: Dec. 1, 2013
This was the hit of my Thanksgiving dinner!!! I took others' advice and roasted the yams for about an hour at 400. I think I should have roasted them a little longer, but they were still fabulous. I also added a little nutmeg and cloves and doubled the topping (with no gross pools of butter, as one reviewer predicted).

Rich Make-Ahead Turkey Gravy

Reviewed: Dec. 1, 2013
I keep thinking that this was so much work that I probably won't do it again, but then every time I taste the gravy, I think, "Well..." It was fantastic!!!!! I did need some extra thickening help, so I mixed some flour into some extra chicken broth and mixed that in. On the other hand, I am new to gravy-making, so I can only assume that the need in the first place was due to something that I did wrong. Either way, it was delicious and got rave reviews all around! I was also able to cut up the turkey meat from the wings and make a yummy turkey salad, as the gravy didn't need another thing.

Rabbit with Mustard

Reviewed: Aug. 25, 2013
This was so yummy, and super easy! We loved the flavor, but ours turned out pretty tough. I used two medium onions, quartered, half a cup of wine and half a cup of water (wife doesn't like a strong wine taste), and used a little orange juice instead of juice from a fresh orange. As I said, we really loved the flavor, so I think next time we'll try the same recipe in the crock pot and see if that helps with the texture of the meat.

Actually Delicious Turkey Burgers

Reviewed: Aug. 2, 2013
I just eyeballed amounts using this recipe as a guide- used a whole egg (in just one pound of turkey) and also added some worcestershire and fresh basil from my garden. These were fabulous on the grill!!!

Honey-Glazed Pork Chops

Reviewed: Jun. 26, 2013
The flavor was great, but we ended up with really dry pork chops. This may be my fault, so I'll update the review if I have better results next time. I used boneless pork chops and followed the suggestion of another reviewer, cooking 14 minutes on the first side and 12 on the second, but that was way too long! I think I may try it another time with cooking 10 minutes on each side and see if we can get a juicier pork chop.

One-Dish Chicken, Vegetable and Rice Bake

Reviewed: Mar. 6, 2013
I used 2 cups of instant white rice and 2 cups of water, but in this case, I should have added more spices. Once we did (after the fact), it was great! I also cut up the chicken and mixed it in thoroughly before baking, and I really liked it this way. I think in the future, I might just use 3-4 chicken breast halves, since 6 was a little too much chicken for me. Otherwise, the wife and I both loved it, and it will be added to our list of quick, but yummy dinners!

Delicious Ham and Potato Soup

Reviewed: Mar. 3, 2013
This recipe was fantastic!!!! I made a double batch using one pound (total) of mild italian sausage, which I browned in the pot first. I followed the rest of the recipe as-is, but I think next time I might use 1/2 - 3/4 the amount of pepper called for. It was a little on the spicy side for us. BTW, I used half course ground black pepper and half finely ground white pepper. Finally, I followed one reviewer's suggestion and added instant mashed potato flakes at the end to thicken. This was a divine dinner, and we'll definitely make it again!

Honey-Garlic Glazed Meatballs

Reviewed: Feb. 10, 2013
This is my alltime favorite sauce for meatballs! I haven't actually made these from scratch, but this has become my go-to potluck recipe. I make a double batch of the sauce in a pan, then pour it over 2-3 pounds of premade frozen meatballs in the slow cooker. I usually cook on high for about an hour, then turn to low for 2-3 hours. I just take them to the party, plug in the crockpot on warm, and liten to people raving, "Mmm... who made these?!?"

Ham Bone Soup

Reviewed: Jan. 20, 2013
I often buy a ham just so I can make this soup later (after eating all that yummy ham first, of course)! This is my go-to recipe, though I just use it as a base and adjust depending on what veggies I have and what sounds good at the moment. I've never made a bad pot of it!

Cream of Mushroom Soup I

Reviewed: Dec. 15, 2012
Oh so good!!! I made this almost exactly according to the recipe, with a couple of minor tweaks. First, I added a couple cloves of chopped garlic with the veggies. I also sauted them for a few minutes before adding the chicken broth to let them cook completely. Lastly, I used fat free half and half. For this first time, I used regular white button, baby bella, and shitake mushrooms, but I imagine it would be delicious with any types. Karena, thank you so much for the amazing recipe! It at least ties, if not beats, the to die for soup we had on our honeymoon cruise last year!

Parmesan Sage Pork Chops

Reviewed: Dec. 15, 2012
Oh wow!!! These were amazingly delicious! It's one of the best pork chop recipes I've ever made, for sure. I will definitely make much less of the breadcrumb mixture next time so that I won't have to throw away so much, but otherwise I made it exactly according to the recipe and it was divine!

Apple Butter Pork Loin

Reviewed: Dec. 14, 2012
Oh my, so good!!! I made this in the crockpot. I added the pork loin, all ingredients (using the apple butter mixture as a rub to coat the pork), and a sliced apple or two to the crockpot and cooked on low for much of the day. I tried to use the juices to make a gravy as other reviewers had suggested, but never was quite successful. This dish was amazing either way!
