Spinach and Feta Pita Bake

Reviewed: Feb. 13, 2011
These were really good. I would recommend that you pay attention to how much olive oil you use - the pesto/sun-dried tomatoes were packed in olive oil as well so it made the pita a bit soggy. These are quick and versatile.

Italian Sausage Soup

Reviewed: Dec. 10, 2010
We love this soup. I leave out the spinach though just because I'm not big on the texture of wilted spinach. It is great exactly as written, but we enjoy it even more after we let it simmer on the stove for a couple hours. It is great for leftovers as well!

Slow Cooker Lentil and Ham Soup

Reviewed: Sep. 2, 2010
I thought this was great! I followed the directions exactly except I left out the celery. It actually cooked for about 13 hours because I was gone all day but it turned out perfectly. I used reduced sodium chicken broth and no salt added tomato sauce as ham can be pretty salty on its own. I'll definitely be having this again - especially when the weather cools down.

Slow Cooker Carnitas

Reviewed: Jul. 21, 2010
This was great! We used a 2lb piece of pork but I used the same amount of seasoning. It was wonderful - the meat was moist and flavorful. We had lots of leftovers and it is delicious each time! Served with fresh tortillas, freshly made guacamole, and cheese.

Grandmother's Buttermilk Cornbread

Reviewed: Feb. 8, 2010
We love this recipe! I have been using it for a few years now with only one modification: cutting the sugar back to 1/2 cup. It is still plenty sweet that way. I loved it with 2/3 cup, but some others thought it was too sweet. Other than that, I follow the recipe exactly. It is usually ready right at 30 minutes.

Chicken Tikka Masala

Reviewed: Jan. 31, 2010
We really enjoyed this. I followed the advice of other reviewers using 1/4 tsp of salt in the marinade and just a dash in the sauce. I ran out of cayenne pepper so I only put a bit more than one teaspoon and boy was it spicy! We enjoyed it because we like spicy food - but I wonder if it might have been too much as written. Boyfriend also made me use 1/2&1/2 instead of cream for health reasons, but it was still good. I won't be giving up my favorite restaurant version anytime soon, but this is a great and easy (despite the long list of ingredients and steps) option to have at home. Served it with basmati rice I prepared in our rice cooker. This definitely only served the 2 of us with a bit left over - so I would adjust accordingly for more people.

Slow Cooker Beef Stew I

Reviewed: Jan. 24, 2010
This was wonderful. I made it exactly as written (minus the celery because I can't stand it, and I used 1/4 tsp of steak sauce with a dash of soy sauce because I didn't have worcestershire sauce). I added too much liquid at the beginning because 1.5 cups just did not look like enough. I'm glad I did though because I was able to add some potato flakes about 20 minutes before we ate and the stew got thicker and creamy, which I think made this dish. We thought this was wonderful. We both had seconds and only have a bit left over - even though I made the entire recipe! Thanks!

Chicken Pot Pie IX

Reviewed: Jan. 18, 2010
This was good. I was kind of scared of boiling the chicken to cook it, but, based on other reviews, I added a chicken bouillon cube to add some flavor. I added garlic and extra black pepper to the onions and butter. I really enjoyed it - and my boyfriend loved it! I used just a 9" cake pan so it was kind of shallow; I think it would work better in a deeper dish - maybe a glass pyrex type dish or something. With the basic ingredients and the relative ease of preparation, I'll be making this again. Thanks!

Charley's Slow Cooker Mexican Style Meat

Reviewed: Jan. 14, 2010
This was pretty good. It was definitely not as hot and spicy as I was expecting. I used about a 3 pound roast and did not brown the meat because I ran out of time. I used all of the spice amounts given by the recipe even with the slightly smaller piece of meat. The meat had a good flavor to it but it just did now pack the punch I was expecting. We served it with small fresh flour tortillas with a bit of cheese, sour cream, and avocado with black beans and rice on the side.

Nana's Apple Crisp

Reviewed: Jan. 13, 2010
This is perfect. My boyfriend and I would make a new one as soon as we finished the last one! We always used Gala apples - which seemed to hold their shape pretty well and were sweet without being over-the-top. I took this to an office party and got rave reviews, even though it had cooled down a bit and we didn't have ice cream! It is the best when piping hot with vanilla ice cream and a dash of cinnamon!

Slow Cooker Chicken and Dumplings

Reviewed: Jan. 13, 2010
This was wonderful. I didn't add the onion because I didn't want to chop onion when I was running out the door for work. I used two large chicken breasts on low for about 9.5 hours, then turned it up to high when I added the biscuits (they took about an hour to cook after I had rolled them flat and cut into at least quarters). I put in too much chicken broth to cover up the really big chicken breasts, so it was still pretty liquid-y when we ate it, but we actually enjoyed it that way. I added some cumin, garlic salt, and pepper when I put it in in the morning. Served it with garlic green beans. We will definitely be having this again!

Slow Cooker Chicken Taco Soup

Reviewed: Jan. 4, 2010
Wonderful! This was my first slow cooker recipe with my 7 quart Crock Pot I got for Christmas. I used two large chicken breasts (that I put in frozen because I was late for work), a smaller can of corn because it isn't my favorite, chicken broth instead of beer (because I only had my favorite beer in the house and I couldn't bear to cook with it), and added a bit more chili powder and cumin. I followed the cooking directions exactly and it turned out perfectly! Can't wait to take it to work tomorrow and brag about it!

Greek Lentil Soup (Fakes)

Reviewed: Oct. 30, 2009
I've made this twice! It was great both times. The second time I added balsamic vinegar, a dash of cayenne pepper, and some all spice while it was simmering. We added a dash of hot sauce to our individual bowls too. This gave it quite a kick. Thanks!
