Splendicious Slow Cooker Spaghetti Sauce

Reviewed: Aug. 16, 2013
What a lot of measuring and work before even beginning to cook. The amount and the ingredients did not sound right but decided to try it based on some reviews – too soupy and salty. Had to put this in the fridge and tried to rescue it later, making some additions.

Easy Biscuits

Reviewed: Dec. 31, 2012
This recipe did not work out for me. They did not rise as high as the photos suggested about 10% higher than when they were put in the oven. Followed the recipe without tweaking, very easy to put together, worked the dough to a minimum just till all ingredients were together. I was expecting a fluffier biscuit. Also the shortening I thought was too much at 3/4 cup turned out heavy could not eat any more! Will have to look for a recipe that suits my fancy.

Home-Fried Cheese Sticks

Reviewed: Aug. 1, 2012
The recipe is simple and is easy to make but I had two problems with this one even though I followed it exactly. Firstly the cheese used is string cheese which in my mind is quite a chewy cheese, I used mozzarella string cheese and secondly the sticks, cooking at five minutes in deep oil at 350 is too long, I lifted them out after some cheese started oozing out of the coating in just 2 minutes even though I had previously frozen them for 2 hours, but this was not a major problem just that they were quite chewy and not tasty enough and no body had more than one stick. I prefer the store bought frozen varieties to satisfy our taste buds.

Ultimate Party Meatballs

Reviewed: Feb. 3, 2012
I agree with the reviews that the meat balls, not being home-made, reduces the star status to 3. I've prepared store-bought meat balls only to find them all spongy and too processed. Also they are not slow cooked if you use the HIGH setting for 4 hours as recommended by the maker, should be 5 hours on AUTO or 8 hours on LOW which is a combo of HI and LOW settings. Assuming that time is not not a factor. Also the 15 minutes on stove top is not enough for the sauce to penetrate the meat.

Crispy Cheese Twists

Reviewed: Sep. 1, 2010
This recipe is not only very easy but great tasting. So happens that this recipe is printed on the pakage side of Tenderflake Puff Pastry that I bought recently with a few changes. I had followed the recipe on the package which consists of Parmesan and Gruyere with fresh ground Pepper and a sprinkle of Italiano seasoning. This is sprinkled on only ONE side of the pastry then with a rolling pin lightly press the cheeses into the dough then twisted with the cheese side hidden inside and placed on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper, baked at 375F for 10 min turned over with tongs then baked another 2 minutes. Remove and place on paper towels to absorb any grease. These don't stick to the pan as the cheese is on the inside. Instead of the Gruyere I used extra old, sharp, cheddar for that great taste! No need for salt or butter.

Vegan Curried Rice

Reviewed: Apr. 27, 2010
Great recipe idea. But only 4 stars because even though the ingedients were correct, some of the amounts were not. Firstly, we need to use double the liquid for any raw rice to cook so add an extra cup of stock or water with quarter teaspoon salt. Secondly the dry spices need to be reduced to half or it would get too hot and over spicy! I used Basmatti rice and added one stalk chopped celery, quarter cup green peas in the last 5 minutes of cooking time. Basmatti Rice needs only 11 minutes on low simmer with closed lid. Finally I sprinkled some chopped spring onions and chopped cilantro, squeezed some fresh lemon juice (1 table spoon) mix it all up – Paradise on earth!

Dilled Creamed Potatoes

Reviewed: Apr. 8, 2010
Not bad! I love all creamy stuff and I'm a potato lover, but the rest of the family said it seemed too fatty to taste. I would not recommend this to anyone who is concerned about their cholesterol! Next time I'd go with 10% cream and cut that in half adding milk and yogourt for the rest, using less liquid accordingly. Otherwise the recipe is good. Just three stars because of the quart of heavy cream!
