Slow Cooker Beef Stew I

Reviewed: Apr. 13, 2014
Full disclosure, I added more broth (3 10 oz cans) because I prefer soup-like soup, as well as a packet of McCormick's beef stew seasoning. Everything else I followed to the letter. That being said, even with the extra spices I found this to be pretty bland. The other reviews were right, this recipe lacks depth and layers. I'm not sure what could have fixed it (more herbs and spices maybe) but it definitely needs some tweaks. It is a good base to start with though if you're one of those cooks who can be creative in the kitchen.

Fast English Muffin Pizzas

Reviewed: Jan. 14, 2014
This was a lot of fun for my 4-year old because she could put together her own and feel like she "cooked" her own dinner. I did follow the suggestions of the some of the other commentators and toasted the muffins first. For my daughter I followed the recipe as it was written (minus the pepperoni because she's not a fan). For mine, I subbed in fresh tomato slices for the canned sauce, and instead of pepperoni I added fresh garlic and some dried basil. SO GOOD. I personally think the fresh tomato version is a lot better than the canned sauce, but both were good and this recipe was definitely fast and easy like it promised.

Mini Frittatas

Reviewed: Jan. 8, 2014
These are pretty good, although a little bland as written. I've made them exactly as the recipe calls for, and i have also sauteed green peppers and added those, and added some shredded cheddar cheese. I've also substituted turkey bacon for the sausage. The extra veggies and cheese was good, but the bacon actually isn't a good substitution, it doesn't have as much flavor in the final dish as the sausage.

Chicken Fettuccini Alfredo

Reviewed: Jan. 8, 2014
This recipe was only ok. When I completed the sauce and tasted it with the chicken, it was great. However, once I put it on the noodles, it became very bland. I think it would have needed a lot more spice.

Slow Cooker Cilantro Lime Chicken

Reviewed: Jan. 8, 2014
The amount of liquid in the slow cooker is only enough to create a thin layer on the bottom, with a ton of chicken on top, uncovered. In addition, the cooking time is way off--I used 4 frozen chicken breasts (much less than the 3 lbs called for in the recipe) cooked on low and after 4 hours it was cooked completely through and could be shredded by a fork. The recommended cooking time, combined with the lack of liquid, would have ruined the meat. I added 3 cups of chicken broth, an extra lime, and more cilantro. I cooked on low for 4 hours, then removed the chicken, shredded it with a fork, and put it back in for 30 more minutes. When it was done I strained the chicken out of the liquid and put it on tortillas with cheese and sour cream as tacos, which was very good. The crockpot dish itself looked like a soup before I strained it, however.

Slow-Cooker Chicken Tortilla Soup

Reviewed: Nov. 11, 2013
I made this and even my super-picky, hates onions husband loved it! Like a few others I made a couple of changes. Instead of water I used a whole box of chicken broth. I also increased the tomatoes to 28 oz, used 4 frozen chicken breasts, and omitted the corn. I also used store-bought tortilla chips. It was delicious! Next time I might try adding in a few more veggies but it is definitely great as-is as well.

Taco Casserole

Reviewed: Apr. 1, 2012
Lovedit, with a few minor alterations. I substituted ground turkey. Only added 3/4 the can of tomato soup, and I added 3/4 of a 16 oz. jar of mild salsa. I also added about 7 ounces of water. In addition, I mixed 4 oz. of Colby jack cheese into the meat and pasta mixture on the stove, as well as a small amount of fennel seeds and cumin. After pouring into the baking dish, I mixed the crushed chips with another 4 oz. of Colby jack and topped the dish with that.baked for 20 minutes, then turned on the boiler for one minute for extra crispness on top. Will probably try Fritos in place of tortilla chips next time.

Quick Quiche

Reviewed: Jan. 20, 2011
So good! I used a couple more pieces of bacon, added garlic powder and omitted the onions. The middle won't rise as much as the outside, but that isn't a problem. Mine fell after it came out of the oven, but tasted great-even my super picky husband who usually hates quiche ate it!

Grilled Peanut Butter and Banana Sandwich

Reviewed: Dec. 6, 2010
Not only was it delicious, but my EXTREMELY picky toddler loved it. Definitely something I'll make again! I made it exactly the way the recipe said to and it came out great. Probably would have been good made with butter instead of cooking spray as well.
