Awesome Slow Cooker Pot Roast

Reviewed: Oct. 16, 2002
OK.... I tried this recipe using a 4 lb. angus bottom round roast, and after reading all the reviews that said the gravy needed to be thickened. I decided to flour the roast with flour, granulated garlic, salt and pepper. Then I browned it on all sides in a little olive oil. While it was browning on the stove, I added the rest of the ingredients to the slow cooker, I also put in two 4 oz. cans of mushrooms. However, I substituded the water for beef broth (same amount) and when the roast was done browning, I put it in the slow cooker and covered it with the mixture in the slow cooker. I also cooked it on low for 4 hours then high for the rest of the time. It came out VERY tender. No need to thicken the gravy, because the flour thickened it while it was cooking. My picky 12 yr old daughter (who eats like a bird) ate some for dinner, then again when she got home that night, and my 9 yr old son asked me to make this more often. I served it with mashed potatoes and canned corn. It was the easiest pot roast I ever made!!

Bodacious Broccoli Salad

Reviewed: Feb. 23, 2004
This was good, I made some changes though. I used white vinegar instead of red, and I omitted the cheddar cheese. I also toasted some almond slivers and added them. This was a great recipe. It gave me another way to get my kids to eat more veggies!

Clark's Quiche

Reviewed: May 9, 2004
This recipe was excellent! However, I made some changes to make it quicker. I halved the recipe to make just one quiche. I also microwaved the bacon and instead of using olive oil, I used some of the bacon grease to saute the onions for more flavor, and I didn't have any cheddar cheese, so I used a mexican blend cheese, and it came out AWSOME! Thanks for such a good recipe!!

A-Number-1 Banana Cake

Reviewed: May 19, 2004
This recipe was GREAT! I made a couple of changes that worked perfect. I added some garlic powder and salt and pepper to the flour and added about a half of a can of chicken broth to the marsala and sherry, then I removed the chicken and added about a tablespoon of wondra flour mix, and whisked it for a few minutes, then added the chicken back to the pan. It thickened the wine sauce, and made a little more. I also think the kind of marsala and sherry you use is VERY important. I used "Florio" sweet marsala wine, and I used "Cribari" california sherry. I went to a liquor store where I know the manager who is VERY knowledgeable about what kinds of wines and liquors to cook with. He sells to many fancy restaurants in the area. He highly recomended both. He was right, because it came out AWSOME! My children ages 10 and 14 don't usually like chicken marsala, but they loved this! I served it with buttered noodles and summer squash. This was a perfect weeknight meal, I will definately be making it again!

London Broil I

Reviewed: May 24, 2004
This was excellent! I think I will make London Broil this way from now on. I got great compliments! I just added more soy sauce, oil, and garlic for a little more of a kick.

White Bread I

Reviewed: May 24, 2004
This was good, I had to pull out my bread machine which I haven't used in a long time. But it was worth it, my kids already asked me to make it again.

Oven Roasted Potatoes

Reviewed: May 24, 2004
The potatoes are AWSOME! I just left out the red crushed pepper, and added some rosemary and granulated garlic instead of fresh, only because it was easier. But they turned out wonderful!

Clone of a Cinnabon

Reviewed: May 31, 2004
This recipe was AWSOME! I took the advice of another reviewer and melted the butter and combined it with the brown sugar and cinnamin and brushed it on to the dough, it came out GREAT! I also sifted the flour into the bread machine and the dough came out very silky. At first I saw some reviews about cinnamon rolls III and I tried that recipe first, but it was way too sweet, so I tried this one and it was just what I was looking for. I don't think I have found one that was this close to a cinnabon so I'm going to stay with this one.

Maple Salmon

This was AWSOME! My kids wouldn't eat it because they just don't like salmon, but when my sister came over, she couldn't stop eating it. She even wanted to take some home to her son!

Spiced Pumpkin Seeds

Reviewed: Oct. 24, 2004
WOW!! These are AWSOME!! I decided to do something different with the pumpkin seeds this year. I stumbled across this recipe and my kids can't stop eating them!! After looking at the ingredients, I didn't think they would be that great, but I was so wrong!! I soaked them for about an hour in a bowl of water, just to clean them off. Then I just drained them. I also used butter instead of margerine, and I baked them at 350 for a half hour, stirring them only once, and they came out great! They also fill the house with a fantastic aroma! I will be using this recipe for now on!!

Fish Fillets Italiano

Reviewed: Feb. 9, 2005
This should be in the Hall of Fame! The only thing I changed was, instead of using white wine, I used white sherry, and I added italian seasoning and an extra clove of minced galic (we love garlic). Even my 11 yr. old son who HATES any kind of fish, loved this! I would give it 5 stars just for that! I served it with egg noodles instead of rice, I thought it would go a lot better, and it was GREAT. I also served it with an italian herb salad with crusted bread YUM!!

Bob's Blue Cheese Dressing

Reviewed: Jul. 3, 2005
I used gorgonzola cheese and left out the hot sauce and honey. But this turned out excellent! I also mixed in some whole milk to thin it out. That's all I had on hand, and I didn't think it would turn out so good, but it turned out great! I'm not going back to bottled dressing again!

Creamy Potato Leek Soup II

Reviewed: Dec. 9, 2005
This was good. I tweeked it a little by adding minced garlic to the bacon and leeks, and a lot of cracked pepper. I also mashed up the patatoes in the chicken broth and added a little extra broth. It just kicked it up a notch, and it came out awsome. My kids and their friends loved it on a cold snowy day!

Grilled-Salmon Lemon Basil Cream

Reviewed: Jan. 25, 2006
This was REAL good. The only changes I made was I added a little more garlic to the sauce, and I also added a pinch of dried dill. I don't have a grill right now, so I coated the salmon with a little olive oil, and sprinkled some chili powder and a little garlic powder on both sides, and broiled it for about 4 minutes per side. Served it with rice and steamed brocolli. The sauce is perfect to put over brocolli. This was a quick and delicious weeknight meal.

Soft Chocolate Chip Cookies II

Reviewed: Jul. 23, 2006
I changed it a little, but got AWSOME results! I added 1 teaspoon of raspberry extract and made them with butter flavored shortening and milk chocolate chips. I also added another half cup of flour, because the dough was a little too creamy. I rolled them in a ball and lightly flattened the top and they came out perfectly round. I had to bake them a few more minutes as well. The aroma of the raspberry and chocolate filled the house. These cookies flew off the cooling rack and I only got to try one! Now my kids want me to make more!

Reviewed: Dec. 18, 2006
I made these tonight for my teenage kids and their friends. My daughter took credit for making them and got a marriage proposal. LOL! The only thing I changed was not adding sun dried tomatoes.
