Campbell's® Slow Cooker Hearty Beef and Bean Chili

Reviewed: Nov. 4, 2010
Definitely needed more flavour. The heat was there, and you can't go wrong with the base ingredients, but when the pot was opened, it was all fire and no flavour.

Chicken Scampi II

Reviewed: Apr. 3, 2010
This was some pretty danged good chicken. Having not had the restaurant meal this is based on, I wasn't sure how it was supposed to turn out. I halved the fat, and added chicken stock after the chicken had turned white. Still could have done with some more sauce, so next time I'll add more stock and a little more margarine.

Fish Fillets Italiano

Reviewed: Nov. 18, 2009
A pretty good and extremely simple dish. I left out the olives, as I can't stand them, and substituted chicken stock and a dash of lemon juice for the wine, as we had none at the time, but it turned out really well. If I were to make it again, it would probably have slightly more seasoning, but as it was, this dish was good enough for me to consider it again.

The Best Meatballs You'll Ever Have

Reviewed: Nov. 16, 2009
Very nice indeed. I was surprised by how subtle the flavours turned out, considering the huge quantities of mustard and Worcestershire sauce included, but they all mellowed out to produce some fairly mellow meatballs. For a lack of croutons I instead used toasted brown bread, blitzed in a processor, and toned down the mustard, as I believe that the yellow mustard in America is quite a bit less potent than yellow 'English' mustard. I'm fairly sure that these are not the best possible meatballs, but they are definitely the best I've had. All in all, definitely worth having, and don't be put off by the quantities of the ingredients.

To Die For Blueberry Muffins

Reviewed: Oct. 27, 2009
The actual muffin mix itself was perfect, but the crumb came out like biscuit dough for me. Possibly a problem with the metric conversion of this site, but it was still tasty, even if it did go on in lumps, before sinking into the muffin mix itself. We're not going to bother with the topping next time, but we will increase the blueberry count considerably for extra flavour.
