Slow Cooker Cranberry Turkey Breast

Reviewed: Oct. 21, 2010
In brief: Meat good, sauce too sweet. Recipe not specific enough about ingredients. More salt needed or more acid needed. Only average when made as directed. I found this dish too sweet. I used the OceanSpray whole berry cranberry sauce, which is jellied. Maybe that is the wrong one to use, but the recipe isn't specific about that. Since one cook found the dish too sour, I wonder if a combination of jellied and regular cranberry sauce would work? I made it on the bone and also did high for one hour, followed by six hours on low. Meat fell off the bone. It needed a lot of salt and was just too sweet for us. I was disappointed, but might try it again with the addition of perhaps fresh lemon juice? Something needs to cut the sweetness.

Spicy Brussels Sprouts

Reviewed: May 17, 2010
I make steamed brussels sprouts all the time -- if you steam them for as long as 30 minutes, first of all your pan will boil dry and second of all, they will basically cook down into mush. Monitor as they cook to reach your desired consistency.

Benne Cookies

Reviewed: Dec. 21, 2009
Total failure and I followed the recipe exactly. 30 minutes was WAY too long, couldn't get the cookies off the wax paper, even when I used a cooking spray.
