Vegetarian Chickpea Sandwich Filling

Reviewed: Aug. 27, 2014
This was pretty good. The only change I made was to make it VEGAN, so I used Veganaise instead of mayo. It's versatile, so next time I think I will try adding different veggies. I used this on spelt bread and it was tasty, and there was lots left over for the next lunch. It will probably be even better then once the dill absorbs into everything.

Slow Cooker Cilantro Lime Chicken

Reviewed: Apr. 29, 2014
This was a huge hit at my house. And it was so quick to throw together. Based on all the comments about it being too salty I also made my own taco seasoning using the 'Taco Seasoning I' recipe on this site (which took only a minute to make). It turned out perfect. The salsa I used was Old El Paso Restaurant Style Salsa Picante.

Master Pizza Dough

Reviewed: Apr. 15, 2014
This was pretty good. I followed the recipe exact (used the active dry yeast). This crust is good for the BBQ as it holds together great on a BBQ pizza pan.

Bob's Salad Dressing

Reviewed: Apr. 9, 2014
I agree exactly as some others said...that this is really good except I found the tahini a bit to strong for my liking. Next time I will scale it back, but it's still a great dressing.

I'm not one for using processed food, but if you're looking for a quick fix this one is super easy and yummy. A nice treat.

Delicious Black Bean Burritos

Reviewed: Apr. 9, 2014
I followed this recipe as written and was surprised (based on all the reviews) at how bland it was. I even added hot sauce and it didn't help much. Next time I make it again, I'll leave out the cream cheese and add some rice and cheddar cheese instead to make it a real burrito. Out of all the 5 star recipes I've made from this site, this was the first that wasn't that great but again most people have altered it. I think that adding another cheese would make a lot of difference in the taste, so I would highly recommend it for flavour.

Slow-Cooker Pepper Steak

Reviewed: Apr. 4, 2014
This was good. I must say my husband loved it and I thought it was just good, but will probably make again as it's a nice change from time to time. I followed it exact with the exception of the beef bouillon. I didn't want to use that with the MSG, etc. so I used one little plastic container of the Knorr Homestyle concentrated stock instead that has no additives. This probably also helped cut down on the salt issue that a lot of reviews complained about. Since I didn't use the bouillon I was sure to add some salt as well so that it didn't come out bland (I just used some Montreal steak spice). I served with shanghai noodles instead of rice and that was great.

Pork Roast with Sauerkraut and Kielbasa

Reviewed: Apr. 4, 2014
This was great! We spent all weekend eating it. I followed recipe with the exception of adding about 3/4 cup of lager (Harp was what I had on hand) as recommended by other users. Not sure if it made any difference but I couldn't taste lager and I was nervous about there not being enough liquid. I cooked on high for 2 hours then on low the rest and the meat was nice and tender. Had no issues with kielbasa turning to mush, but where I come from we take our kielbasa seriously and it's available at all stores so maybe the quality makes a difference?? Not sure, but it held together nicely. I made sure to get one with no additives so perhaps that made the difference. Definitely will make this again. And as other users have said...if you don't like sauerkraut - do not make this!

Quinoa Black Bean Burgers

Reviewed: Feb. 25, 2014
This was just okay. I followed exact except I added quick oats instead of bread crumbs as that's what I had on hand. Basically I just found it bland, but I did make my own avocado spread and some hot sauce and they were awesome like that. So, with all the good stuff in them, I would make them again but make sure to add some zest whether it's in the paddies or as a topping.

Chicken with Quinoa and Veggies

Reviewed: Feb. 14, 2014
This will be one of my usual meals going forward. It was delicious and even my picky 6 year old ate the quinoa. That in itself makes this recipe amazing.

Quinoa and Black Bean Chili

Reviewed: Feb. 14, 2014
Wow I was surprised how yummy this turned out to be. I've always been hesitant because I thought quinoa would be bland, but this was great. I am no vegetarian, but I would make this over a meat chilli any day. Only variation I did based on other reviews was to cook the quinoa in chicken broth. With any quinoa dish I've made, that seems to make a world of difference with the taste. I used to use water then was put of quinoa for a long time because it was so bland.

Simple White Cake

Reviewed: Feb. 14, 2014
This cake was excellent. I followed it exactly with the exception of adding slightly more milk (as suggested by others) and some chocolate chips (I'm a chocolate addict). I had no issues with it crumbling or resembling corn bread. I think the main thing as many have stated is you MUST WHIP THE BUTTER, SUGAR THEN EGGS UNTIL IT IS CREAMY. That appears to be key and worked like a charm. This will be my go-to vanilla cake. I topped it off with whipped cream and strawberries. Yum!

Slow-Cooker Barbecue Ribs

Reviewed: Dec. 2, 2013
I followed other reviewers' advice and substituted bbq sauce for the ketchup, (2 cups) and ketchup for the chili sauce. Then followed the rest of the instructions. Hate to substitute, but it appears based on almost all reviews that this was the best way to go and they turned out delicious. I didn't want to change it and have ribs that tasted more on the ketchup side. I always use sweet baby rays, but today will try Famous Dave's.

Slow Cooker Chicken and Dumplings

Reviewed: Nov. 24, 2013
This recipe was really good. I admit I almost didn't make it as I didn't find the photos that appealing. But with the great ratings I figured I'd give it a shot. Very quick and easy to make. I only used 1 pkg of the dough though. 2 would have been too much.

Easy Slow Cooker French Dip

Reviewed: Oct. 10, 2013
followed it exactly and it turned out great. Had a hard time in Canada finding French onion so just bought Campbell's onion soup. Turned out it is no longer available here or they have just renamed it onion. I do see French onion on the US site though. Probably the quickest slow cooker recipe I've made to date (all of 1 min to throw it all together).

Chipotle Crusted Pork Tenderloin

Banana Banana Bread

Reviewed: May 13, 2013
So far, definitely one of the better recipes I've tried. And they are all basic ingredients that most will have on hand. Nice and moist.

The Best Rolled Sugar Cookies

Reviewed: Feb. 13, 2013
I'm not a big sugar cookie person, but I needed a standard recipe for school parties and this one was excellent. I loved these cookies. Will definitely use from now one.

Marie's Easy Slow Cooker Pot Roast

Reviewed: Feb. 5, 2013
This turned out nice. Only change I made (as suggested by others) was to use beef broth instead of water. Used some of the liquid at the end to make gravy.
