Jennie's Heavenly Slow Cooker Chicken

Reviewed: May 23, 2012
I used ranch dressing mix rather than Italian and cream of chicken soup instead of mushroom, and it was really good! The chicken was tender, and the sauce was very tasty - did not seem salty and/or bland as other reviewers mentioned with the Italian dressing. Mashed potatoes would probably be a good side next time for all of the extra "gravy."

Flourless Peanut Butter Cookies

Reviewed: May 4, 2012
I followed another reviewer's suggestion and reduced the sugar to 3/4 c. (1/2 c. white and 1/4 c. brown) and added 1/2 t. baking soda and some vanilla. I was pleasantly surprised to find out that the cookies did not fall apart, and they were delicious! In fact, that's the drawback - I can't stop eating them!

Slow-Cooker Chicken Tortilla Soup

Reviewed: Mar. 12, 2012
Delicious! I had leftover pork loin that I was trying to finish, so I substituted that for the chicken. Also, since my husband does not like cilantro, I used dried cilantro (less noticeable) and went a little light. Then I left the shaker out for anyone who wanted to add more to their bowl. We topped the soup with a Mexican four-cheese blend and crushed tortilla chips (didn't use the corn tortillas as indicated in the recipe). I will definitely make this recipe again!

Chicken Florentine Casserole

Reviewed: Mar. 4, 2012
I thought this was basically a good recipe. I used fresh spinach instead of canned, turkey bacon instead of pork to please one family member, and omitted the mushrooms to please another (substituted cream of chicken soup for the mushroom soup). Although we all liked the casserole, I think we did not love the strong Italian seasoning flavor. Next time, I may omit the seasoning and lemon juice and try white wine and parsley instead.

Turkey Tetrazzini II

Reviewed: Mar. 1, 2012
Wow - this one's a keeper! I was trying to find a way to use up an excessive amount of smoked turkey lunchmeat, and this recipe worked out great. The whole family went back for seconds ... and thirds!

Cherry Pie

Reviewed: Feb. 13, 2012
Loved the almond flavoring in this pie! My only complaint was that the filling was super-thick and gelatinous. so I will have to double-check the amount of tapioca I'm adding next time. Since I used two 10" pie plates, I tripled the recipe.

Eucharistic Bread

Reviewed: Nov. 13, 2011
I recently taught the cooking rotation in our Sunday school program when the kids were learning about "Give us this day our daily bread." I quickly nixed all of the suggested bread recipes because they took too long. Instead, I used this one, which the kids (and their parents) really seemed to like. To save time, I made the dough at home, then the kids finished kneading it and shaped it into biscuit-sized loaves, which baked in 10-15 minutes. My family liked the recipe so much that I will be sure to use it again at home!

Sally's Spinach Mashed Potatoes

Reviewed: Nov. 4, 2011
Some reviewers complained that this recipe was too bland, but I cooked my potatoes in salted water and added the spices according to taste (did not measure), so I felt the casserole had plenty of flavor. I cooked a 10 oz. bag of fresh spinach rather than use frozen. I would make this recipe again.

Southwestern Casserole

Reviewed: Sep. 17, 2011
I used ground turkey instead of beef, black beans instead of kidney beans, and cheddar instead of Jack. I also omitted the jalapenos. My family found the casserole tasty and worthy of seconds!

Homemade Refrigerator Pickles

Reviewed: Sep. 16, 2011
Very easy and tasty. As suggested by other reviewers, I cut the sugar in half, and it was the perfect amount of sweetness. Also, I omitted the green pepper since that did not appeal to me.

Terrific Turkey Chili

Reviewed: Jul. 24, 2011
Tasty and healthy dish. I like having a change from the traditional chili with beans. Since I did not have either beef broth or crushed tomatoes on hand, I substituted vegetable juice and water. The flavor was a little spicy for my kids, but my husband and I liked it fine as is.

Grandma's Green Bean Casserole

Reviewed: Jul. 23, 2011
I cooked fresh green beans for this recipe and substituted chopped scallions for the onion since that is what I had on hand. My whole family liked the dish, but we were split 50-50 on whether we preferred this recipe or the traditional green bean casserole. The verdict: will keep and use both recipes!

Marinated Grilled Shrimp

Reviewed: Jun. 13, 2011
This was the first time my husband and I attempted grilled shrimp, and they turned out fantastic! The only substitution I made was vegetable juice in place of the tomato sauce, and I marinated the shrimp overnight. They had a nice garlicky flavor! Maybe a little too salty, perhaps because of the veggie juice substitution, so I might cut back on that next time. Definitely a keeper!

Ginger Glazed Mahi Mahi

Reviewed: May 25, 2011
For me, the sauce came out looking very black but tasted great. The fish had just the right amount of flavor from the marinade. This was my first experience cooking mahi mahi, and I feel it was successful!

Cornbread Pancakes

Reviewed: Apr. 20, 2011
My family loved them! They are much better than the cornmeal griddle cake recipe I usually use - very moist and fluffy. (Gotta love buttermilk!) I have been trying prepare higher fiber foods, and this recipe fit the bill.

Blueberry Cream Cheese Pound Cake I

Reviewed: Apr. 10, 2011
I was really nervous about how this cake was going to turn out because it did take much longer to bake than directed, and the outside was really brown. However, the inside was moist and delicious! My grocery store does not carry lemon cake mixes for some reason, so I used French vanilla. I also substituted 1/2 cup melted butter and a couple tablespoons of oil as another reviewer suggested, and I tossed the blueberries in flour before adding.

Whiskey Marinade

Reviewed: Mar. 31, 2011
Excellent! I marinated chicken breasts overnight, then breaded and pan-fried them and served with a gravy made from the excess marinade. Big hit with the whole family!

Chocolate Banana Bread Pudding

Reviewed: Jan. 10, 2011
The only changes I made to this recipe were that I substituted almond milk and baked the pudding in a water bath without the towel. (Why the towel?) My oven bakes a little hot and I forgot to adjust the temperature, so the pudding was done in 45-50 minutes. The texture was perfect - not too runny, not too dry. Unlike other reviewers, I thought the sweetness was just right, but I guess that's a matter of personal taste. I have had a banana bread pudding before and forgot that the bananas bake up rubbery, so I will try other reviewers' suggestion of mashing them next time. I am also used to having a sauce (e.g., rum sauce, vanilla sauce) on my bread pudding and thought this needed something additional.

Chocolate Yule Log

Reviewed: Dec. 11, 2010
I've never made a yule log before, but this recipe was easy enough for me to follow and have good results. The cake looked great - I decorated with marzipan mushrooms and mint leaves and cherries that resembled holly. However, the mocha flavor wasn't my favorite even though I usually like mocha. I will try a different recipe next time.
