Easy Slow Cooker Ropa Vieja

Reviewed: Jan. 13, 2015
I loved it! My husband and kids said it was just okay. Ingredients list says cut flank steak into thirds, but in instructions it states to use half of steak. No biggie, but it should be corrected. Served with white rice and black beans.

Three Cheese Tortellini with Traditional Sauce and Parmigiano Cheese

Reviewed: Dec. 31, 2014
For others mentioning that they like home made better, well that's to be expected of most pre-made foods in my opinion. That being said, this is a decent quick dinner. Don't forget the basil leaves and use some good cheese too, not the green can if you can help it. I would prefer using Barilla Spicy Marinara sauce on this. It's hard to find but I buy it at Walmart. I'm not a huge fan of jarred sauces and the like but they do have their place in my pantry. Using my suggestions you may fool someone that you spent some time in the kitchen! Kinda like dressing up a "superstore" outfit with a designer handbag, shoes or jewelry. ;)

Linguine with Clams and Spicy Marinara Sauce

Reviewed: Dec. 28, 2014
4 out of 5 stars because I think the instructions should be altered. Linguini should be boiled for 9 minutes not 4 and then added to sauce with clams because once the clams are steamed open they have been fully cooked and further cooking can make them rubbery. Otherwise an easy and great dish. Also, I used Manilla clams which are smaller and sweeter than littlenecks. I also did not need any of the pasta water at all

Cranberry Nut Stuffing

Reviewed: Nov. 6, 2014
First off we really liked the nuts in this stuffing, the cranberries, not so much. This recipe is not false advertisement as he states that it is tangy in his description. That being said, if you love the tartness of cranberries you will probably enjoy this stuffing. I used fresh cranberries and cut them in half. I would also add extra rubbed sage and other stuffing spices you enjoy and use the whole can of chicken broth.

Corned Beef-Stuffed Pumpernickel

Reviewed: Nov. 6, 2014
This dip "grew on my husband". He enjoyed it more as he had more. I don't know why. We did like it but I did add extra garlic powder and a little bit of cayenne powder. It is not something I would make again because their are other dips that I prefer more and if I'm going to eat a high fat appetizer I had better LOVE it. If you do try this out, make sure and remove the paper wrap completely from the corned beef can or the gadget to open it will slip and then you are screwed. Take it from me, it was not a pretty sight by the time I got my can open.

Triple Citrus Cupcakes

Reviewed: Nov. 1, 2014
These are delicious upcakes with just the right amount of orange flavor. I zested my peel, I did not grate. Also for those new to zesting, make sure you zest just the colored part of the skin. If you start removing any of the white pith it will make things taste bitter. I should have bought two limes because I needed extra juice for the frosting because it was to thick for me and needed additional juice. I had to use lemon because I ran out of lime juice. I also added a little more vanilla extract and just a bit of canned evaporated milk to get the frosting to the consistency I like. Add very small amounts until you get the consistency you like. I then added some orange gel coloring to the frosting and they looked beautiful!

Slow Cooker Apples with Cinnamon and Brown Sugar

Reviewed: Oct. 29, 2014
This was ok for us but maybe this was my fault for using quick cooking oatmeal but Idk if that would make or break this recipe. I also believe we would have enjoyed It more if I would have removed the apple skins completely before cooking. I'm not sure if the apples are supposed to be tender or downright soft and mushy because that's how mine turned out after 3 hours on low. The flavor was good and not too sweet so as others mentioned, very good on vanilla ice cream. I would make this again as it is a great dessert recipe that takes minimal work and attention, but peel the apples before cooking and also check their tenderness after 2 hours or so.

Slow Cooker Mexican Beef Stew

Reviewed: Oct. 28, 2014
Next time I will definitely use some crushed red pepper like recipe suggested. Not a lot, just a little. I used 1/2 more stew meat and glad I did. You can always add more veggies if you want, I know I did. I also deglazed my frying pan with the beef broth so I wouldn't lose any flavor. Also, using that liner meant I didn't have to wash out my slow cooker! Holla!!!!!

Cheese and Hamburger Macaroni

I substituted Johnsonville Italian sausage for the ground beef and loved it! I used regular Velveeta and sour cream, not low fat. I will definitely make again!

Baked Smoked Sausage Spaghetti Casserole

Reviewed: Oct. 3, 2014
We liked it but next time I would add some tomato paste and more seasoning because I like a little more tomato taste and sauce with the spaghetti.

Baked BBQ Baby Back Ribs

Reviewed: Sep. 25, 2014
I cheated and used pre-seasoned baby backs from Costco but followed the remainder of the cooking instructions per recipe. I even omitted BBQ sauce on a quarter of one rack because one of my kids doesn't care for BBQ sauce. These were awesome as well!

Creamy Alfredo Potatoes

Reviewed: Aug. 26, 2014
I made this with a roast and it was a nice change instead of mashed potatoes. I added extra green onion and next time I make it I will add even more! The overall flavor and texture reminded me of a baked potato with all the fixings. Very good!

Baked Ziti with Cheese

Reviewed: Jun. 18, 2014
Just okay. I used regular fresh mozzarella, not buffalo mozzarella. The cheeses are sooo good on their own, but the finished dish was not worth the cost of the cheeses in my opinion. Too bad because I really wanted to like it.

Mexican Sushi

Reviewed: Apr. 25, 2014
A fun appetizer for anytime! Except for the cream cheese mixture, I added each ingredient in rows parallel to the direction I was rolling them up. (see picture I added)I think it makes a cleaner appearance after cutting them. Hope that makes sense. Roll them very snug to eliminate gaps between the ingredients and make sure your knife is sharp so you don't tear the tortilla when you slice them.

Creamy Pea Soup

Reviewed: Apr. 24, 2014
This is "thinner" than other split pea soups I have made before, but it is smoother and creamier where others are much thicker. I'm thinkng it will be the perfect consistency on the second day. We shall see. I didn't have any carrots or celery so I substituted frozen carrots and peas from a bag and celery salt. I also tossed in one chicken bouillon cube 'cause I like to live life on the edge. Turned out yummy!
