Slow Cooker Italian Beef for Sandwiches

Reviewed: Apr. 20, 2010
Excellent way to use a lower-quality piece of meat, or one of the random roasts you get when you buy a whole side. The meat ends up being fall-apart delicious and very flavorful, but not overly zesty. We keep the cooking broth and use it as a dip for French Dips. A favorite slow cooker recipe in my house!

Cola Pot Roast I

Reviewed: Sep. 23, 2009
This is a great alternative to the "standard" pot roast. The cola & spaghetti sauce give it a zippy flavor, and the gravy it makes is excellent! The only modifications I make is that I add diced carrot to the onion, celery & tomatoes mixture, then after browning I cook it in a Crock Pot. Last, I stir in a little flour slurry to thicken the gravy and blend it with a stick blender so it is a smoother texture. This makes a lot of gravy, which is excellent over potatoes. I save the extra gravy and use it over meatloaf later in the week. Excellent pot roast!

Thick Cut-Outs

Reviewed: Feb. 14, 2009
A great cut-out sugar cookie!! I doubled the vanilla, but that was the only change. When I baked these, I did bake them on parchment paper. They spread out a little bit, but kept their shape very well. The cookies are soft, but still sturdy enough for frosting and decoration. I have searched long & hard for the perfect sugar cookie recipe, and this is it!!

Slow-Cooker Chicken Tortilla Soup

Reviewed: Sep. 24, 2008
Excellent Soup! I made on the stove-top, and it still turned out amazing. To adjust for stove, I made the following adjustments. 1.) Put chopped onion, green chilis and all spices in a dutch oven with a little veggie oil. Cooked until onions were soft and spices were fragrant. 2.) Added all other ingredients, except I reduced the water by at least a cup of water --- I then brought it to a boil, and reduced to a simmer for 30 min - 1 hour. 3.) I thickened a little with a flour slurry. Honestly, very little effort to make a wonderful dish!

Apple Squares

Reviewed: Sep. 21, 2008
These are excellent, but I do feel they are more of a coffee cake texture than an actual square/bar texture. Unlike most reviewers, I made the original recipe for a small square pan. Per reviews, I made the following modifications and was very pleased with the result. 1.) I cut back the sugar to 1/3 cup for each the white and brown sugar 2.) I used an entire apple, about 1 full cup and left out the nuts 3.) I didn't make the full cinnamon/sugar topping amount. They turned out very moist and everyone loved them. They are extremely easy to make and I will definitely make them again. Excellent for either a dessert or breakfast item.

Hot Mexican Spinach Dip

Reviewed: Dec. 15, 2007
Very yummy! I always make this in a crockpot instead of actually baking it, and it turns out great. If it starts to get a little dry, just add a little milk. I also add extra garlic to give it some extra kick. This is perfect for any Mexican-themed potluck.

American Lasagna

Reviewed: Dec. 15, 2007
A definite "go to" recipie for a crowd! I make the following minor modifications: 1.) Use l lb. of ground beef, and 1/2 lb. of ground italian sausage. 2.) Use cottage cheese instead of ricotta. I think the ricotta can be a little too dry at times. 3.) You can use no-boil lasagna noodles and save some time. 4.) Do not forget the brown sugar. It cuts the acidity of the tomatoes and is critical. 5.) Use extra mozzarella cheese whenever it is called for! I get rave reviews for this every time I make it!

The Best Rolled Sugar Cookies

Reviewed: Dec. 15, 2007
I have made this recipie twice, and both times have been rather dissapointed. The first time the dough was very sticky and I could barely roll out the cookies. The second time I added an extra cup of sugar hoping that would do the trick. The dough was less sticky, but both times I almost had to scrape the cookies off the cookie sheet. They were not study cookies like others have mentioned. I tried this recipie with high hopes for "the perfect sugar cookie" and this one is not it!

Awesome Sausage, Apple and Cranberry Stuffing

Reviewed: Dec. 15, 2007
Excellent stuffing. The flavor was incredible. I used all fresh herbs, which I think it a requirement. Also, I minced the dried cranberries before adding. I did think the stuffing could have held together a little more, so next time I might add an egg or a little more broth. However, the taste was still incredible. I did not cook in a turkey, just in a roasting pan, and it came out just fine.

Baked Dijon Salmon

Reviewed: Aug. 10, 2004
This is one of the easiest, best salmon recipes I've ever made. I suggest using Dry Italian Bread Crumbs, which are finer. This will give the salmon a little more of a crust. It also absorbs the honey/mustard mixture better. You can also use Honey Mustard instead of Dijon, and it still turns out excellent.

Broccoli and Carrot Lasagna

Reviewed: Jul. 20, 2004
This is an excellent recipe! I typically prefer a meat dish for my main couse, but love this lasagna. I typically use the Garlic Cream of Mushroom soup to give it a little extra flavor. I find cottage cheese works better in most lasagna, because ricotta seems to dry up too much for my taste. This is best when it is made a day or two ahead, it allows all the flavors to 'melt' together nicely. It is definitely worth the effort!
