Slow Cooker Beef Stew IV

Reviewed: Dec. 10, 2010
After reading other reviews, I made a few adjustments. Replaced water for beef stock & added a few cloves of garlic. I eyeballed the wine & pretty sure I at least doubled what the recipe calls for. My work schedule is a whole lot more than 6 hours, so I cooked on low for 10 hours instead. Overall a good recipe, it's a keeper.

Slow Cooker Chicken and Dumplings

Reviewed: Dec. 6, 2010
We loved this recipe, great for a cold winter evening. I am always looking for new slow cooker recipes to help with my time crunch after work. After reading previous reviews, I made the following adjustments & it came out great. No butter, used chicken stock instead of water & only 1 can of biscuits (pillsbury grands, reduced fat). I also put the chicken breasts in whole. I cooked for 10 hours on low & in the last hour shredded the chicken and added the biscuits. Delicious!

Lunch-Box "Handwiches"

Reviewed: Jul. 3, 2010
Very tasty, my husband loved them & wanted seconds. I used thawed frozen rolls instead of a bread loaf. I also stuffed with pizza sauce, mozzarella cheese & pepperoni instead of ham & swiss. The possibilities are endless!

Vanilla - Chocolate Powdered Sugar Frosting

Reviewed: Jun. 27, 2010
Very easy, and tasty. I paired this up with the strawberry cupcake recipes (also from this site) and added about a tsp. of strawberry extract from this site to stay with the strawberry flavor. Delicious!

Strawberry Cupcakes

Reviewed: Jun. 27, 2010
Made as written, but used a lot more strawberries (almost a full cup) per previous reviews. It is a bit heavy for a cupcake consistency, but still so tasty. I paired it up with the vanilla powdered sugar fronsting recipe (also from this site). I brought to my monthly cooking club & it was a hit!

Beef and Irish Stout Stew

Reviewed: Mar. 30, 2010
Brought this to my monthly cooking club & it was a hit. Followed the recipe, but due to time limitations I prepared in the skillet the night before, then put it in the slow cooker on low and let it cook all day the next day. I used a full can of guiness beer & also added 1 cup of beef broth to the slow cooker to keep it moist, came out great!

Guy Approved Meatloaf

Reviewed: Jan. 12, 2010
My husband doesn't really like meatloaf, but I wanted to give this one a try because of all the good reviews. We both thought this was just OK. To use my husband's exact words, "it's good if you're really hungry but it's still meatloaf." I followed the recipe exactly.

Campbell's® Green Bean Casserole

Reviewed: Nov. 26, 2009
Really good recipe. After reading a few other recipes I made a few changes. Omitted the soy sauce and replaced with a splash of worcheshire, I also used 1 can of cream of mushroom & one can of cream of onion. I also added the optional 1/2 cup of cheddar cheese. I used fresh green beans instead of canned & baked for about an hour. Delicious :)

Awesome and Easy Creamy Corn Casserole

Reviewed: Nov. 26, 2009
Huge hit at thanksgiving dinner. I doubled the recipe (except for the butter, kept that at 1/2 cup) and baked in a 9x13 pan for about an hour. Fantastic.

Chicken and Broccoli Braid

Reviewed: Nov. 22, 2009
Fantastic! My whole family loved this recipe, the teenager devoured every remaining last bite. The only changes that I made was to triple the garlic, half the dill and to sautee all the veggies lightly before baking. It looks & tastes wonderful, would be good for company - makes it look like you slaved over a hot stove for hours, but in reality is very easy to make.

Eggs Benedict

Reviewed: Nov. 7, 2009
Really tasty, I love poached eggs & have never attempted to make benedict before. I followed the advice of previous reviewers & cut way back on the lemon juice (used 1/2 tsp for a single serving). Here's the trick, measure out all the ingredients for the sauce & set them aside, start the water for the double boiler to warm it up. Cook the muffin, canadian bacon & poached eggs first. Have them ready to serve, then start the sauce at the very end - it only takes a minute or two if you have everything ready. Serve immediately!

Avocado and Tomato Salad

Reviewed: Nov. 6, 2009
I used cherry tomatoes & cut them in half. Forgot the pepper but didn't miss it. Very tasty salad, and it was quick & easy to make. I think I'll cut way back on the dressing nex time, it was way too much for my tastes.

Roquefort Pear Salad

Reviewed: Nov. 6, 2009
I had to substitute gorgonzola cheese for the roqufort and walnuts instead of pecans based on what I had in the house, but it was still delicious.

Missy's Candied Walnut Gorgonzola Salad

Reviewed: Nov. 3, 2009
Absolutely loved this salad. I didn't have any raspberry vinagarette, so I used Ken's fat free raspberry pecan dressing. I've made it with the dried cranberries, and also tried with dried cherries when I ran out of the cranberries, great either way. Delicious!!

Slow-Simmered Chicken Rice Soup

Reviewed: Oct. 31, 2009
Made this for a family get together & everyone loved it, even the kids. I didn't have time to slow cook, so I simmered on the stove. I took the advice of previous reviews & waited to throw in the rice until the last hour. Even with that, I still needed to add about 3 additional cups of stock towards the end of cooking as the rice soaks it all up. As a personal preference, I added 3 sliced carrots & 3 cloves of minced garlic. Loved the subtle kick the red pepper flakes added.

Slow Cooker Scalloped Potatoes with Ham

Reviewed: Oct. 29, 2009
I made this dish exactly as called for, except that I added some minced garlic (personal preference). I liked being able to use the slow cooker as I work long days & time to cook is limited. We felt the flavor was a little on the bland side, even with the garlic, and my husband thought it was a better side dish than a main dish. He was still hungry afterwards and made a sandwich. I would suggest adding more meat & some spices to kick it up a notch.

Hash Brown Casserole II

Reviewed: Oct. 24, 2009
Found this while looking for a side dish to go with our dinner fritatta. Very yummy. I made a couple of adjustments for personal preference & based on what I had on hand. Didn't have any frozen hash browns so I shredded 4 large potatoes in the food processor & rinsed them. I used condensed cheddar soup instead of cream of mushroom & I omitted the topping all together because I didn't have corn flakes. I also omitted the butter in the potato mix, there was plenty of liquid with the soup & sour cream. I ended up cooking for about an hour to get the desired tenderness. I took the lid off for the last 15 minutes or so in order to reduce the liquid down.

Slow Cooker Sausage with Sauce

Reviewed: Oct. 24, 2009
Really tasty & so tender. I used homemade sauce and served on hoagy rolls. I put the sausage into the slow cooker frozen & cooked on low for 8 hours. I think I cut the onions & peppers too small, they really shrunk from all the cooking. Next time I will leave larger chunks.

Easy Chicken Enchiladas

Reviewed: May 9, 2009
My family loves these enchiladas. They are tasty & nice for after work because I can make them ahead & just pop in the oven when I get home. I skip the beans because my husband won't eat them. I always use a homemade salsa & reduced fat cream cheese in the mix. My husband likes me to make extra cream cheese/salsa mixture to serve on top. They are also yummy if you add some sliced black olives baked right inside the enchiladas. This dish is a regular feature on our menu. Thanks for sharing!
