Tangy Slow Cooker Pork Roast

Reviewed: Nov. 17, 2011
this is the best pork recipe I've found on this site. I adjusted as follows - halved recipe for just 2 of us - skipped onion (didn't have fresh and we don't care ALL that much for it), skipped salt altogether - used 1 tsp cayenne pepper instead of hot sauce. threw in a bit of worchestire sause cause we love that flavor. dbl'd black pepper. SO juicy, nice kick without overpowering pork - served with mashed potatoes and green beens, used left overs as pulled pork sandwiches - truly an awesome recipe - will definitely be keeping and using often.

Favorite Quacamole

Reviewed: Jun. 4, 2010
Obviously I love my own recipe - but this last time I made it, was the best it's ever turned out. Make sure those avacados are RIPE - I researched picking avacados online - i recommend going to a good grocery store and buying them a few days in advance, put them in a paper bag at room temperature, keep them dry and then use them the day of your party. Don't use the whole batch of cilantro - it does tend to over power - I used a half a batch - feel free to add as many jalepenos as you so desire. If the avacodos are rip and unbruised, though, you really can't go wrong. I LOVE THIS GUAC

Best Green Bean Casserole

Reviewed: Nov. 30, 2012
just threw everything in a boal, mixed it up and put in the casserole dish - didn't microwave anything. Adding cheese in w/o putting on top was perfect. I put some FF onions in the mix, too, as well as on top - just a light sprinkling - turned out great - not good when the sides are better than the bird! LOL

Maple Dill Carrots

Reviewed: Jul. 28, 2009
I make this often. SO easy and super yummy - you can cook the carrots as much as you'd like - if you like them a little crisp or soft - a perfect side for any meat and potatoes type dinner.

Baked Zucchini

Reviewed: Dec. 11, 2009
I LOVED this stuff - it makes WAY to much stuffing for just one large zucchini though - I could use it up in about 10 zucchini's = great for a party appetizer that way, though - and u can use the cream cheese stuffing on crackers or as a veggie dip on it's own, too, if you have left overs!

Thai Chicken Pizza

Reviewed: Feb. 3, 2006
My boyfriend and I loved it! I made it like the recipe asked, except I only used an 1/8 cup of Peanut butter and i added Cilantro with the green onions and chicken. I think the Cilantro made ALL the difference. Sas very good and will definitely make again! ***ammendment We still make this all the time - just wanted to add that we've also used crunchy chow mein noodles as a topping when we didn't have all the ingredients and it's great that way too! Cook up the chicken in sesame seed oil and garlic, sprinkle some toasted sesame seeds on it instead of peanuts and it's really awesome that way, too!

Savory Apple Pork Chops

Reviewed: Dec. 6, 2011
we tweaked it a bit. I emailed this recipe to my husband to get started before I left work. He took the recipe, eyeballed all the ingredients instead of measuring and used Jack Daniels BBQ sauce instead of ketchup. He reduced the amt of sauce to just a simple glaze, and cut apples in 1/8th's instead of thin slices. He servied it and it was AMAZING. Flavors were great, the bbq roasted apples were VERY flavorful and fun. the boneless thick pork chops were SUPER juicy and perfectly done. cooked for about 40 min I think - our oven isn't the greatest - might take less time for you. Served w/ brown rice and green beans. Will be a staple in our home for making pork chops.

Figs with Goat Cheese, Pecans and Bacon

Reviewed: Jul. 31, 2011
yuuuuuuuuum.....left out pecans cause didn't have - used garlic/herb goat chs, used pitted dates because couldn't find figs at the store - cooked bacon a little bit, only until just starting to brown and still very plyable - through under high broiler for 5 min and turned out great. Will definitely be making again as my staple party appetizer.

Cinnamon and Orange Glazed Carrots

Reviewed: Nov. 30, 2012
super simple and easy - we just used a bag of baby carrots instead of chopping/cleaning the reg carrot stalks - great way to make a carrot for a nice meal - takes it up a notch w/o having to try too hard. thanks!

Herbed Slow Cooker Turkey Breast

Reviewed: Nov. 30, 2012
I tweaked just a little bit - I threw some slabs of butter under the skin - they didn't have whipped veggie cr chs, so used whipped chive instead - dbl'd all other seasonings - used a 6lb turkey breast....put the spread on the bird the night before and threw it in the crock pot it a small amt of low sodium chicken broth in the bottom - threw it in the next morning and cooked on high for close to 6 hrs but didn't need that long - trying to get the darn bird out of the crock pot, it basically imploded it was so tender - FELL APART - no carving necessary! extremely tender and juicy even after it cooled and reheated next day - this will be our standard Thxgiving recipe from now on. holy yum

Artichoke Spinach Lasagna

Reviewed: Dec. 1, 2010
I LOVE this lasagna. My friends always ask me to make it when we get together for girls night. You do have to make sure to really squeeze as much liquid out of the frozen spinach as you can - took me a few times making it to get the right consistency. You can probably use less broth as well. All in all, though, great flavors, nice and fairly healthy - great vegetarian option - I don't even miss the meat.

Filet Mignon with Rich Balsamic Glaze

Reviewed: Dec. 1, 2010
nice flavorful steaks - didn't spend the money on filget mignon - can use on any piece of red meat, really - I like my steak with bold warm flavors so this fit the bill. Easy to keep from blackening, too. one of my favorites.

Downeast Maine Pumpkin Bread

Reviewed: Dec. 2, 2010
I took reviewers advice and did a 1/2 cup veg oil and 1/2 cup apple sauce. This is very moist and yummy. I will, however, in the future, dbl the amt of spices. i can barely taste them. I might also add more pumpkin - again, very mild flavor. I used 2 9X5 loaf pans instead of 3 7x3. Still turned out, but had to keep it in the oven an extra 20 min.

Flatlander Chili

Reviewed: Jan. 31, 2011
Made some changes based on other reviews - I used 1 lb beef, 1 lb mild italian sausage. I used 2 cans of diced petite tomatoes and 2 cans of tomato sauce. I used one can dark Kidney beans and 1 can chili beans w/ medium sauce. Drained/rinsed kidney beans but adding the sauce from the chili beans. I dbled all spices, cooked meat in Worchestir sauce, used only a 1/2 cup of onion (not huge onion fans), 1 green pepper cut into md chunks, no celery (husband doesn't like it) I cooked the meat, spices, onion and green peper in the skillet, then combined it w/ the sauce and beans. Cooked for 3 hrs on high, then 2 hours on low in the crockpot. half hour before it was done, I added a 1/4 cup of cornstarch since it was a little watery to my liking - next time I will drain the diced tomatoes so it won't be so watery. Brought to friends house for dinner and everyone loved it. Husband said it was the best chili I've made yet. Hostess said it was just the right amt of heat for her. i was running late so whipped this up and into the crock pot in only 20 min - super easy to make.

Shrimp and Asparagus

Reviewed: Mar. 1, 2011
I'm giving this 4 stars because I did tweak it and will tweak further - but loved it overall. Halved the recipe for just my husband and myself and still have a lot left over. Used Angel Hair pasta instead of egg noodles. I sauted garlic (will use more next time) in olive oil (WAY TO MUCH called for in recipe (1/8 cup all that's needed for serving of 4 if that) and then added butter (again, to much - will use 1/4 cup for serving 4 instead of 1/2), lemon juice, asparagus (raw) and some white wine. Skipped mushrooms cause neither my husband or I like them. After the asparagus was almost fully cooked, I added 1 lb of lg shrimp and 1 tbsp of Salt Free Poultry seasoning and pepper to taste. Did not add any salt at all. When shrimp was fully cooked, I removed shrimp/asparagus from sauce, added 1 tbsp of cornstarch diluted in a splash of white wine to avoid clumping, to thicken the sauce - then tossed pasta, sauce and shrimp/asparagus together. Served w/ fresh out of the oven pillsbury simply rustic french bread. Forgot to top w/ Parmesan, but didn't need it - was still good. So much oil left on the plate after we ate we used it for dipping w/ the bread. Could use more vegetables - maybe some zucchini and carrots - overall, taste is awesome - just trying to cut back on fats, cholesterol and salt, so reducing amt of oil and butter is good - use white wine and cornstarch to increase amt of sauce if you want more. Loved the simplicity of it. Looking forward to making again!

Delicious Grilled Hamburgers

Reviewed: May 17, 2010
Wonderful burgers. Quadrupled recipe for BBQ of all guys - only had a couple left - really enjoyed them. Did not feel it was to smoky at all w/ the liquid smoke, following others suggestions to have a slightly smaller amt per pound. Next time, will probably keep the measurement as called for because we really like the smoky flavor.

No Bakes

Reviewed: Nov. 30, 2012
can't really go wrong here - only change I made was to use soy milk and I add the PB to the chocolate and let it melt together, THEN remove from heat and add the oats - way easier to get a good coating and uses fewer dishes.

Easy Breezy Casserole

Reviewed: Apr. 26, 2011
only gave it 4 stars cause I tweaked it. Used 1 can cream of chicken, 1 can cream of broccoli and 1 can cream of mushroom. Seasoned chicken breast with salt free chicken grill mate seasoning, pepper and freeze dried basil - eyed it - used quite a bit of each - sauted chicken in butter and 1/2 tbsp minced garlic w/ juice from the jar. used 1 bag shredded reduced fat mild cheddar - mixed 3/4 in with casserole, put 1/4 on top. Used whole bag of frozen broccoli, cooked. Husband and I were pleasantly surprised - casserole's with this much cream of XX soups usually are to heavy and sit funny in our tummies - this, though, tasted great and was very satisfying. Will definitely be our go to casserole when we need something for leftovers!
