Slow Cooker Chicken Stroganoff

Reviewed: Jun. 10, 2012
I've made this a few times as written. I have had great success substituting cooking creams instead of plain cream cheese for added flavor. Savory Garlic and Italian cheese and herb are both wonderful.

Diane's Colcannon

Reviewed: Mar. 31, 2012
I love his recipe as it is, but I did make some changes the next time that I think made it more to my taste and have gotten rave reviews. I prepped early: nuked a pound of turkey bacon and tore the slices apart (approx .75 inches) rather than crumble, smashed the ptotaoes (red with skin on-lazy) and added enough milk to add some moisture, added some minced garlic to the chopped onion (softened in a little oil)and put it all in a casserole dish. I baked it for approximately 30 minutes before serving.

Meatball Nirvana

Reviewed: Oct. 4, 2011
I have been looking for a great meatball recipe for a long time and finally found it here. I eye-balled the ingredients (I think I came close to original, but skipped the red pepper and hot sauce-can't tolerate spicey). I coud have eaten them right out of the oven and skipped the rest of meal prep! Thank you, thank you, thank you!

Spaghetti Sauce II

Reviewed: Apr. 18, 2011
Very good written as is. Didn't have all of the ingredients the second time I made it, so I changed it with terrific results: 1/2 pound ground sausage, 1/2 pound ground beef (seasoned both with garlic salt and onoin powder), 1 large can of crushed tomatoes Italian style, 1/4 cup red wine, 1 large can of tomato paste and 2 smaller cans of tomato sauce (can add more tomatoe sauce if result is too strong. Forgot the bay leaves. Browned and drained meat and tossed everything in the crockpot on low for 6 hours. Smelled and tasted terrific and didn't have a lot of cleanup (used liner) or prep. Thanks for a great recipe!

Roasted Chicken Noodle Soup

Reviewed: Mar. 27, 2011
I used boneless, skinless chicken breasts I had seasoned with savory and poultry seasoning and baked wrapped in foil. while that baked, I sauted onions, carrots, and baby bellas. I shredded the chicken before adding to the soup along with a can of corn. I left everything else the same. It was wonderful and may just be my new go-to chicken soup recipe. Thanks! Edit 4/18/11: Skipped the milk and substituted noodles for the potatoes to great success.

Asparagus with Blue Cheese Sauce

Reviewed: Feb. 9, 2011
I was looking for a blue cheese sauce to try with steak and thought I would try this one. It was WONDERFUL! I changed the servings to 8 but used two whole containers of blue cheese crumbles. It made the sauce VERY strong, but that's what I was looking for. Have passed the recipe on with raves. Thanks for a great recipe. I may actually have to start eating veggies! LOL

Harvest Rice Dish

Reviewed: Feb. 4, 2011
THis was fantastic!! Approval from all who tried it (took it to work). Only changes I made (availability) were to use all white rice and chopped onion instead of wedges. A co-worker also suggested adding/substituting snap sugar peas. I also added cooked chicken cut into bite-size pieces at the same times as the cranberries and mushrooms (makes a meal rather than side dish). I'll try it with wild rice next time. Will make again and again. Thanks so much for the recipe!

Chicken Tortilla Soup V

Reviewed: Jan. 17, 2011
I've made this a few times always to great raves. Very simple. Changes I've made (original recipe first time): include added 1 whole can of corn and cut the cumin and chili powders in half (then put jars on the table for others to add to taste). I also double the chicken and shred it after baking it wrapped in foil. This is great in the crockpot.

Baked Ziti I

Reviewed: Dec. 30, 2010
I made this for Christmas Eve and took it to work as a suprise for the evening and night shifts. It got raves, but made some changes: .5-.75 pound dry ziti (cooked 1-2 minutes less than package directions for al dente), 1 pound lean beef, .5 pound loose sausage, onion powder and garlic salt to browning, meat, Ragu Italian sausage and cheese spag. sauce, Italian blend cheese instead of provolone (24 cups shredded), .75 cup of sour cream, .75 cup cottage cheese, .5 cup parmesan cheese (mixed with sc and cc and 1 beaten egg), mixed sauce and meat with pasta before layering, and baked as directed. I'm sure this recipe is wonderful as written, but I always make a change :)

Best Lemonade Ever

Reviewed: Jul. 5, 2010
I love this lemonade!!! I always have a pitcher in my fridge now. It takes me less than ten minutes to make (including time to run water through a coffee maker) by using lemon juice concentrate. I use sugar blend so there is less to dissolve (means less hot water needed) I never have sugar on the bottom anymore!! My family loves it too!

Buffalo Chicken Wing Soup

Reviewed: Apr. 22, 2010
I've made this soup many times now and it always comes out wonderful. I do make changes: instead of milk(don't always have it handy) I use water, and use a 2:1 cream of chicken:water ratio (I like it thick). 4.25 pounds of shredded chicken breasts, 2 cans of cream of chicken soup and 1 can of water fills a 3.5 quart crockpot. I also use 1.5 tablespoons of Texas Pete Buffalo Wing Sauce in the crockpot and put the bottle on the table. It's a favorite at home and work. Can be done stovetop as well with fantastic results.
