Slow Cooker Cranberry Chicken

Reviewed: Feb. 9, 2012
My family thought this OK. I'm giving it a high of 3 stars because maybe it cooked too long, but the breasts were a bit too tough and while the sauce wasn't bad initially it gave a very strange after taste. My husband specifically told me to PLEASE not try this recipe ever again. Just not for our family.

Corn Fritters

Reviewed: Feb. 22, 2014
So yummy!!! The words of my children. I would have given them 5 stars however, I read through the comments and took some of the advice to use 1/4 cup of stugar and a little more salt than it stated. This made them perfect! If I had stuck to the original amounts I know we wouldn't have like them as well. I did use frozen corn because that's all I had. I didn't warm it and drain it any just stuck in frozen, mixed, added a touch more flour and then started frying. They were perfect. Fluffy and tender on the inside while being golden and crunchy on the outside. Next time I think I will lower the temp on the oil they did get a little too brown. This basic recipe I think could be so versatile from spices and veggies you add to make it savory, to adding fruit and more sugar for a delicious fried sweet.

Aussie Chicken

Reviewed: Aug. 2, 2012
We loved this chicken! Even my husband who isn't a fan of honey mustard loved this. The only thing I changed was that I drained the grease from the bacon pan and just fried it in that. My pans can go from stove to oven so once it was browned I just coated the chicken, piled it up, covered with cheese and then it went straight in the oven. My husband has already said he wants me to do this again! I used fresh chopped onions, next time I think I will use onion powder just because of texture. Served with mashed potatoes. This has just become my new need go to when I want a little comfort food. Thanks for sharing!

Sesame Beef

Reviewed: Jun. 17, 2010
I love using this recipe but of course I do it to my family's liking. First I use a bottom round roast but I have the meat guys slice is jerky thin. I also don't use green onions since I don't have them most of the time. Yesterday I made this for some guests so I made 8lbs of this and used 1 cup of onion powder and it still turned out great. I also used reduced sodium soy sauce and it still turns out fine. But the biggest difference I do is that I actually put it out on the grill. It turns out so much better in my opinion. We usually do the meat, jasmine rice, and then I make up veggie skewers of mushrooms, zuchini, and red pearl onions marinated in panzo sauce. It's always a hit even with my 6yr old. It was a hit yesterday

Beets on the Grill

Reviewed: Apr. 5, 2014
My husband is in love with doing beets on the grill now. Since I had two softball sized beets I ended up cutting them into huge chunks and I added some chopped peeled carrots. I'm not a huge fan of beets but I even had to say these were pretty good! I just made sure I kept flipping the packet so they wouldn't burn. Next time I might try adding some of the different herbs as other reviewers have stated.

Roast Sticky Chicken-Rotisserie Style

Reviewed: Feb. 15, 2014
We LOVE this recipe! My daughter gets excited when she knows we are roasting a chicken for several reasons. It's delicious the night we cook it and then later I will pick off what's left and freeze it, the drippings and the striped carcass for soup later. I boil the bones till they are powdery and then discard leaving behind a wonderful base. She raves about it. Make sure you let the spice rub marinate over night! It makes a HUGE difference. I once was in a hurry and it only got an hour, same daughter looked at me and said "It was OK.... it's normally awesome!!! What did we do wrong?!" I've even tweaked it by adding some other spices before but nothing beats the original in my opinion.

Mexican Chicken Corn Chowder

Reviewed: Nov. 27, 2013
This was a good base. First time I made recipe to exact. It was... underwhelming. Second time I modified it and it wasn't bad at all. I used 2/3 a can of rotel instead of the tomatoes and chilies. I omitted the hot sauce. I added some small diced potatoes and carrots along with some whole kernel corn. I added more cumin, some rosemary, and lime juice. Shredded the chicken and used stock instead of bullion. Made a roux to thicken it more and cut way back on the cream added. Even added some more fresh tomatoes that I needed to use up and served cheese on top vs in it. My husband loved it this time. Only thing I wish I had at that time were some flour tortillas I could have popped into the oven for a wonderful crunchy garnish! My daughter raved about the "broth" of the soup. I'm not saying the orig recipe was bad just that it doesn't deserve a 5 star in my book. After the changes it's going into my "It's cold and I want soup!" rotation.

Merritt's Butternut Squash Gratin

Reviewed: Oct. 19, 2013
This was pretty good! I didn't use the Grueyer cheese just because of the price and just used what I had on hand a combination of Sharp Cheddar and Colby Jack. I liked it and probably will make it again, one of my daughters said she thought it tasted like a lasagna but with squash, my husband said in cube form it was too strong. He thinks next time I make it I should mash the squash first before adding the cheese topping instead of leaving it cubed. All in all it wasn't a bad recipe and I will make it again. I also add some freshly ground black pepper and realized I added a tbsp of brown sugar instead of a tsp. I think I will keep this addition. It gave it a wonderful mix of sweet and savory.

Aw-some Cole Slaw

Reviewed: Mar. 7, 2013
This is my go to recipe base anytime I want to make coleslaw! I use a package slaw mix and then mix up the dressing. I highly suggest making it the day before you want to serve it. It's good about 3-4 hrs from when you make but SO much better the next day. My kids go crazy when they find out I'm making it. Besides using a package of the slaw mix the only other thing I do is add some celery seed. Turns out delicious!

Fresh Asparagus Soup

Reviewed: Mar. 13, 2014
I made this tonight only subbing the vegetable broth for chicken stock and used 1% milk vs soy milk and added a little minced garlic. Served this with a grilled ham and swiss sandwich and it made a very filling meal. My children even thought it was delicious. I only gave the recipe 4 stars because I did sub some ingredients and I think that made the difference. As written I only give it 4. With the changes definitely a 5.

Cafeteria Carrot Souffle

Reviewed: Nov. 8, 2013
I have been using this recipe for several years now. My family LOVES it. The hubby looks like a little kid opening presents when I say I'm making this for dinner. Like others I would say to 1/2 the sugar. I tend to use about 1/2-3/4c of sugar depending how sweet we want it. I would also suggest if you use margarine vs butter to use less. About 1/2 to 3/4 of the amount called for because it turns out almost greasy otherwise. Only other addition I tend to do that I think adds to it is a dash of cinnamon. I've had many a kid who HATES carrots absolutely LOVE it and that's making it with the least amount of sugar. I've even added a full TBSP of baking powder vs the TSP before and it turns out so fluffy.
