Slow Cooker Bolognese

Reviewed: Dec. 25, 2011
I thought this turned out really well. I would have given 5 stars but I changed a few things. I used a frozen mirepoix mix and threw it right in the crockpot, and I used 2% milk instead of cream because it was Christmas and that was what I had! My 2 year old and 5 yr. old ate it all.

Squash Medley

Reviewed: Aug. 23, 2011
This was pretty good. I really liked the blend of seasonings and the texture of the crunchy bacon. I altered it just a little: I used more of all the seasonings, I used turkey bacon, a can of diced tomatoes in juice, but I drained a lot of the juice out. I also added a little fresh mozzarella on top for serving. It was a great summer meal served with a glass of white wine.

The Milky Way Martini

Reviewed: Jun. 3, 2011
Well, I started making these for my friends but they were so good I pretty much drank all of them! It's like a dessert in a glass. You can't taste the alcohol at all, which makes them dangerous. I have now given this recipe to some friends and they agree that these are addicting!

Spinach and Sun-Dried Tomato Pasta

Reviewed: Jun. 3, 2011
This was simple and very good. I love things that are easy to make. The only I changed was adding more garlic because I love it. Someone suggested adding artichoke hearts or mushrooms, and using some wine. I will try those ideas next time to step it up for company. Thanks for the recipe!

Old Fashioned Strawberry Pie

Reviewed: May 15, 2011
Delicious! I never have problems with this like some of the other reviewers have had. I do use a little more flour than called for, and on occasion I add sour cream to form a custard, but otherwise it's great. It is even better the next day!

Creamed Corn

Reviewed: Nov. 24, 2010
This was delish. The best creamed corn ever, and I really dislike creamed corn. I also put it in the oven to melt the cheese for about 10 minutes, at 350. It got rave reviews at our Thanksgiving preview party!

Cinnamon Sugar Crisps

Reviewed: Nov. 20, 2010
These were very good, but I wanted them a little crunchier. I tried a batch for a little longer, but they were on the burnt side. They still tasted good. Next time I may stick to tortillas, but using wontons made that step so much faster!

Blue Cheese and Asparagus Pizza

Reviewed: Nov. 20, 2010
This was very easy to make and surprisingly good. I wasn't sure how the flavors would mesh on a pizza, but my husband loved it. I did add crumbled turkey bacon for a little extra flavor.

Slow Cooker Enchiladas

Reviewed: Nov. 16, 2010
I followed another reviewer's idea and did not use my slow cooker. I cooked in lg. casserole dish for 40 minutes in oven at 375. I also used ground turkey and fat free versions of the soups, low carb tortillas and added a layer of fat free refried beans. It turned out great. It was great comfort food, my kitchen smelled lovely. Because I used the cheese as called for, I probably cancelled out the effects of the healthier substitutes, but I didn't notice the taste difference at all. You can't go wrong when you smother things in cheese!

Spiced Slow Cooker Applesauce

Reviewed: Sep. 28, 2010
Holy cow! I almost ate the whole batch in one sitting. My kids and husband loved this. My batch was a little too sweet for me, so next time I will use green apples instead of red, but definitely a keeper. I can't wait to make this into a pie filling!

Tilapia Pitas

Reviewed: Sep. 28, 2010
This was OK. I thought the sauce was overpowering and my husband didn't care for it. It needed something more. I did add sliced red bell pepper strips for added crunch, but I'm not sure I would make this again with the dressing. The fish was cooked perfectly. As a fish taco or wrap, maybe a drizzle of light sour cream or ranch dressing instead.

Mojito Fruit Salad

Reviewed: Aug. 29, 2010
I love this salad! The dressing is the perfect compliment to all of the flavors. It's helpful when the season of fresh fruit is over to make the salad last longer. I didn't change anything except switch out cantaloupe with honeydew. I don't like cantaloupe. Next time I might include mango and raspberries as well to add even more flavors! Thanks!

Miso Soup

Reviewed: Jul. 5, 2010
This was awesome. So easy and delicious. I made it exactly the way the recipe called for. I think it's a great midday snack when you are trying to eat healthy, but with the addition of tofu it is very filling.

Grilled Adobo Pork Tenderloin Salad With Plums and Almonds

Reviewed: Jul. 5, 2010
I thought the pork was perfectly seasoned, a nice mix of sweet and spicy. I would have like the plums to be a more dominant flavor, like in a plum sauce. I was expecting the flavor to be sweeter to cut the spice, but it wasn't enough. The flavor combo was good, though. If I make it again, I will use plum jam or plum sauce.

Cool Whipped Frosting

Reviewed: Jul. 5, 2010
This was really tasty and creamy. I used chocolate instead, because I prefer it. I had a hard time getting the cake to not get in the frosting as I was spreading it, but i don't blame the recipe for that!

Buffalo Chicken Wing Soup

Reviewed: Apr. 17, 2010
I thought this was a really clever, interesting recipe. I had no idea how it was going to turn out, but it was great. Easy to do, easy to adjust the amounts to make more for a party. I added a frozen mirepoix mix (carrot, celery, onion) and topped the bowls with some blue cheese crumbles. I think another great flavor may be a ranch dressing packet, I will try that next time. This is definitely a keeper!

Spicy Beef Vegetable Stew

Reviewed: Mar. 30, 2010
This was excellent! Just what I was craving. I didn't have to change a thing. My husband loved it, and it was great leftover as well. Wait! I did change one little thing: instead of ground beef i used pieces of beef I buy in the store already cut up for stew. I just think stew needs beef chunks and not ground beef. I will make this again for sure.

Beer Dip II

Reviewed: Mar. 13, 2010
I followed the other reviewers advice and added shredded cheese and green onions. I made this again for a St. Patrick's party and used Dubliner cheese and Guiness. I took it a step further and heated everything through in a crock pot on low. It was a good warm dip with beer bread. The flavors are strong, but everyone really liked it.
