Slow Cooker Chicken and Dumplings

Reviewed: Nov. 18, 2009
My family LOVED this recipe! After reading others reviews, I made several alterations but this recipe is a great starting point. I used 2 cans of cream of chicken soup... however the alterations I made were: a) seasoned chicken before using (paprika, garlic powder, salt & pepper and cumin) and left the chicken breasts whole (keep in moisture) b) I didn't dice an oinion, I added shallots instead which I sliced in half (this is good if you have any fussy oinion haters like my 9 year old but still want some oinion flavor) c) I added frozen peas, canned corn and baby carrots cut into two. Somebody mentionned that adding veggies doesn't make it as good due to the consistency but mine turned out awesome (like a chicken stew) with veggies in it and finally - d) I didn't use refrigerated biscuit dough because I didn't have any so I made a very simple home-made dumplings (I looked up "easy dumpling" recipe and found something that took two minutes to throw together). I put the dumplings in for an hour before serving and they turned out great! The family thought this was the definition of comfort food and I know we will be enjoying this one several times throughout the cold winter months. Enjoy!

Slow Cooker Pork Chops II

Reviewed: Nov. 24, 2009
These were definately melt in your mouth tender! I used bone-in pork chops and they were literally falling off the bone... I sauteed oinions and garlic and layed them at the bottom of the slow cooker before putting the pork chops in. I doubled the chicken broth and used all the seasoning suggested... added a dash of balsamic vin. I cooked it on low for 7 hours. I tried adding potatoes in at about the half way point but I found that the strong herbs are a little to overwhelming for the potatoes so wouldn't recommend that. I'd go with other vieweres suggestion for rice or mashed potatoes as a side vs. trying to add potatoes or veggies to the pot. The meat will be the star of the meal with this recipe - definately a tasty recipe to try!!

Hash Brown Egg Bake

Reviewed: Jan. 31, 2010
Super easy to make and very satisfying! I did some minor alterations; 1. I broiled the hashbrown mixture for 10 minutes before pouring eggs on top (to keep it from getting mushy) 2. I added oinions and red pepper 3. For spices I used salt, pepper, garlic powder and a dash of cayenne to help boost the flavor 4. I used an old sharp cheddar cheese to give more cheesy flavor and used more then asked for. (I put 3/4 cup in with hashbrowns and then topped the entire casserole with a cup of cheese to finish it off) Cooked for 45 minutes and it was perfect! I then added the cheese to the top and broiled it for another 3-5 minutes. The family LOVED this recipe!

Tomato and Zucchini Melange

Reviewed: Jan. 31, 2010
We LOVED this. Super easy to make and tasty! I added some finely diced garlic and red bell peppers. I cooked the zucchini/bell peppers first and added the tomatoes in for the last 1-2 minutes of cooking. Tasty and healthy - will definately be saving this recipe to use in the future!

Tandoori Chicken II

Reviewed: Mar. 14, 2010
Our family loves a LOT of flavor & this recipe definately delivered. The changes I made were: 1) doubled all the spices (more flav!) and 2) I added 2 tbsp of extra virgin olive oil & 1 tbsp of water (vs. using just water). Also added a dash of fresh squeezed lemon. I made chicken-kabobs & marinated the cubed chicken pieces for 1/2 hour. They were PACKED full of flavor - this recipe really worked great as a BBQ marinate! Will definately use this recipe again & again over the summer months! Thanks for posting!

Heavenly Halibut

Reviewed: Sep. 14, 2010
We LOVED this recipe!! The fish turned out very moist, perfectly cooked... and TASTY! I kept the recipe as is.. broiled for 9 minutes... then added topping... then broiled for 2-3 minutes. It was perfect! Only change we made was to add a TBSP of white wine and a clove of finely diced garlic to the topping mixture. Definately a keeper!!
