Marie's Easy Slow Cooker Pot Roast

Reviewed: Nov. 19, 2006
THIS IS AWESOME. Boyfriend and I couldn't believe it! I modified the recipe based on other people's comments. Everyone was saying to add Montreal Steak Seasoning, which I didn't have. So I looked it up and it's basically comprised of pepper, salt, and paprica. For the rub i combined 1 Tbsp each of kosher salt, crushed peppercorns (i crushed), and paprika. I also added about 1 tsp. of garlic powder. This I rubbed on the meat and sprayed a little olive oil over top. To the pot, i added 3 large chopped carrots, six or so small red potatoes (chopped), an onion, and half a container of small fresh mushrooms. Additionally, I added 2 bay leaves, about a tsp. of worshire sauce, and the onion soup mix along with the water. Didn't have celery. SUPER SPICE-A-RIFIC!!! Enjoy!

Henry and Maudie's Oatmeal Cookies

Reviewed: Nov. 19, 2006
Very simple and EVERYONE loves them!! A GREAT recipe, thanks! An addition: I've found that if you add half whole oats and half quaker quickie oats, the cookies are much tastier.

Addictive Pumpkin Muffins

Reviewed: Nov. 20, 2006
I really LIKE these! It's not so much that they are the most sinful thing you've ever tasted, it's that they're quite good, really low fat, and literally addictive. I made mine using whole wheat flour, craisins instead of raisins (eyew rasins) and diced apple instead of walnuts. I also used splenda instead of sugar. Since I live in Israel, I couldn't find canned pumpkin. So I decided to go to the store to make my own. Apparently pumpkin is the word they use to mean butternut squash, so I steamed and mashed butternut squash with some pumpkin pie type spices and a dash of salt. I got about 24 little muffins (they don't really rise). My boyfriend said they are cute, but that they're not really his "type" of thing, but he went back for seconds, so who know. I'll make these again. You kind of have to work to chew them, but that's cause they're dense. I like them! Thanks for the recipe!!!!

Bake Sale Lemon Bars

Reviewed: Jul. 15, 2007
Followed Gourmet Mommy's changes. Made 2 batches back to back. I did not double the dough part as some recommend and it filled (thinly) a 9 x 13 glass pan lined with parchment paper. Forgot to add flour to the lemon-egg part in the first batch. Thought that turned out much better than the lemon part in the second batch with the flour. In the second batch, I substituted canola oil for margarine/butter (more healthy). Ended up adding an extra 1/2 cup of flour to compensate. Preferred that crust to the first batch I made. All in all I LOVED these bars. Pretty fattening, but a great, refreshing summer treat. Oh, also, I froze these immediately after I made them (after I tasted them). It had no impact on the taste. I added the powdered sugar after they'd properly defrosted and prior to serving.

Crackle Top Molasses Cookies

Reviewed: Jul. 15, 2007
This is an awesome recipe. You can use whole wheat flour instead and it really doesn't impact the taste (I've tried both ways).

Apricot Lentil Soup

Reviewed: Jul. 15, 2007
This soup is unbelievably amazing. I've made it time and again and it's always a wonderful and healthy crowd pleaser. I double the cumin and that about does it. A very special soup.

Zucchini with Chickpea and Mushroom Stuffing

Reviewed: Jul. 15, 2007
These are fabulous. I can't believe this recipe doesn't have more reviews! The real secret to making this great is that you need to food process the filling until it's smooth. My friends and especially my finance and his family LOVE this recipe. Definitely worth trying. It does take a little time, but it's SO worth it!

Crustless Spinach Quiche

Reviewed: Jul. 15, 2007
A great basic recipe. I used broccoli and a low fat French cheese (5%) as well as feta. It turned out pretty good. I don't think I used enough cheese though, so the egg was a little much. But it was my fault, not the recipe's.

Martha's Vegetable Beef Soup

Reviewed: Jul. 15, 2007
It was ok. Neither here nor there. Seemed like it'd be a good pasta sauce.

Giant Chocolate Chip Cookie

Reviewed: Jul. 15, 2007
I thought this turned out quite good (though mine was also pretty dense). Some friends said it was really salty. And it possibly was--though I like ccc's to be slightly salty (as is normal). I don't know why, I followed the recipe exactly.

Buttery Cinnamon Cake

Reviewed: Jul. 15, 2007
I LOVED this cake. Recommended. I think I used whole wheat flour (I made this a while back) and it was still fine.

Tomato and Basil Quiche

Reviewed: Aug. 21, 2007
This was fantastic!!! I changed it slightly based on other people's suggestions. I only used 1 tomato (seeded but not peeled) and about 4-5 sundried tomato halves in oil. I chopped those up and tossed with the flour and basil. I only used ONE teaspoon of basil. I think that made a difference. I used the No Roll Pie Crust II (which I DID bake beforehand). I only had 2 eggs, so I added a bit more milk (3%) to compensate. The recipe turned out great!!! Next time I may double it (maybe not all the cheese) and go crustless. I HIGHLY recommend this recipe with my changes.

Soft Chocolate Chip Cookies II

Reviewed: Oct. 31, 2007
They're ok. Nothing spectacular. Maybe I'm a CCC snob, I dunno. One thing the recipe doesn't specify is how large the cookie dough droppings should be. I used TBS-sized droppings (ha! that sounds funny) and I had to bake them for 15 minutes rather than the time mentioned here. Also, it made much more than 12 servings. I figured 1 serving=1 cookie. It made about 48 cookies.

Banana Crumb Muffins

Reviewed: Feb. 18, 2008
These are fantastic! I used 1 C whole wheat flour and the rest white flour. The first time I made the muffins, I substituted oil for butter/margarine in the muffins and used margarine for the topping. The second time I made them I substituted oil in both parts and it came out the same as with the butter/margarine. Lesson learned: always use oil for margarine when possible. It's SO much healthier!

Deep Dish Brownies

Reviewed: Feb. 23, 2008
It's too bad there aren't more stars! This recipe is THAT good. All my friends are crazy about these brownies and I can't get enough of them. These are like Duncan Hines brownies in texture but they're way tastier. I've tried this recipe with canola oil instead of butter/margarine and it comes out just fine, though slightly less tasty--that is to say that only I noticed the difference and my friends/family didn't.

Buttery Soft Pretzels

Reviewed: Apr. 2, 2008
These came out great. I only needed half the amount of baking soda solution. I mixed sugar and cinnamon together in the coffee grinder, which made the sugar finer and mixed the two more completely. I painted on melted butter and dipped the pretzels in the sugar/cinnamon mixture. The effect was on par with "professional" pretzels. Good stuff:)
