Slow Cooker Chicken Cacciatore

Reviewed: Mar. 4, 2015
Used 7 Drumsticks, 1/2 lb Fresh sliced Mushrooms and 1/2 sliced Onion, 1/2 minced Garlic. All of the Above veggies and mushrooms I sauteed prior to putting into Pot. The rest of Fresh minced Garlic (1/2 clove) I added to the Sauce. I Covered chicken with ALL THE LIQUID completely, by about 1/4 " above it, not more-to prevent THE watery sauce afterward. I only used Pasta sauce-16.5 oz and 1/3 cup of Chicken broth for liquid. The Resulting sauce was very Tasty and great density ! But the Chicken itself was ALMOST TASTELESS. Next day, it tasted better, though. When I Make it NEXT TIME, I WILL SALT THE RAW CHICKEN PIECES PRIOR TO PUTTING THEM INTO THE CROCK POT, for about 30 min. I do the same, when making chicken broth. Another thing I ALTERED, Was the TEMPERATURE REGIME: FIRST I COOKED MY DRUMSTICKS ON HIGH FOR 1.5 HRS and then- on SLOW for 2.5 HRS instead of 7 hrs. I didn't use green peppers. With buttered Da Vinchi Spaghetti it was very good. Thank you.

Company Liver with Onions

Reviewed: Sep. 13, 2014
The only reason I am giving this recipe a 4, is because The Instructions for the Preparations of Liver Doesn't tell to DRY SLICES OF LIVER prior to Frying in hot fat. Otherwise it is very simple to make and delicious recipe.

Roasted Vegetables

Reviewed: Dec. 14, 2013
I've made this recipe recently, and my husband and I loved it very much. The only thing I've altered was the amount of the vinegar-I used less of it, and the recipe still was a bit on a vinegary side. Next times (which will happen again and again) I'll use even less of it. I only had on-hand a piece of red sweet pepper, some red and some russet potatoes and 1 red onion, but the dish turned out very crispy on the outside and fluffy inside, looking and smelling extremely appetizing and delicious ! The best baked veggies I've ever had !

Baked Haddock

Reviewed: Oct. 10, 2013
I had One 1 lb fillet of cod, and followed the recipe to a T. It turned out smelling fishy (no, the fish was fresh) and not crusty and thick, but sort of mushy, even though you could see the flakes. Next time will do it with BUTTERMILK instead of milk.

Basic Broiled Chicken Breasts

Reviewed: Nov. 5, 2012
It's a wonderful recipe: my husband and I are using this broiled chicken for our lettuce salad. I had 3 boneless skinless breasts and broiled them on smooth side down (first) for 12-14 minutes on Low, then on the other side for about 5 minutes, and it turned out great: slightly browned and juicy. I cannot have the pepper, so I almost omitted it completely, and we both loved the taste of our chicken very much anyway ! A word of caution: always follow your oven's guide and leave the oven door slightly open at an angle, so it would'not catch a fire ! Thank you for a great and easy recipe ! We do not grill and this method is bringing almost same taste results.

Super Short Ribs

Reviewed: Sep. 30, 2012
A terrific and simple recipe for short beef ribs. Takes some preparation (browning of meat) and assembly of all ingredients, but worth every minute of your effort ! I bought half of bone-in ribs and half of boneless of same cut, and it turned out great ! I also used the whole 20 oz can of pineapple chunks in their juice; instead of beef broth used low sodium chicken one and while browning beef to 1 Tabsp of OO added 1 Tabsp of unsalted butter. I browned and cooked the meat in same heavy aluminum pot with tight lid. Meat was ready in less than 2 hours. I served it with potato puree- and it was delicious, with a lot of sweet and sour sauce. Thank you very much for the recipe, Abloon.

Ukrainian Salat Vinaigrette (Beet Salad)

Reviewed: May 10, 2012
I would just like to offer the customized review on Vinegrete recipe: By the way I am not sure, why it's named Ukranian: we lived in Russia, and this was one of our all-season favorite Vinegret. I use home-made or store-bought sourcraut with sugar and caraway seeds (bavarian style) instead of pickles, sunflower oil, I do not add green peas. It's very good served with herring on the side or some like it inside,and with Prussian Rye or Finnish Rye bread with butter ! And, for sure: it's great for you ! Elaine

Magpie's Cucumber Sauce

Reviewed: Aug. 14, 2011
It's a great, easy to make, few ingredients sauce ! I didn't like the addition of honey, didn't have dill, so I used 1 chopped green onion. Added some garlic powder, instead of fresh one. Note: check first your cucumbers: they could be bitter ! I had to through mine away, and then used some English cucumber, which was good. Go thru the precedure with cucumber to the letter of the recipe ! I fried ground lamb patties and the sauce was a great companion to them. Bon Appetit !
