Slow Cooker Beef Stew I

Reviewed: Oct. 1, 2011
Honestly, this was just blah. It tasted like beef with veggies. The seasoning was just not enough. It needed more, more, more. We use organic everything and I season with a liberal hand, but this recipe will not be hanging around.

French Dip Sandwiches

Reviewed: Sep. 9, 2011
We liked this recipe quite a bit. I did cut the soy in half and used fresh garlic. I use an Italian herb mix with rosemary, thyme and basil that I substituted in and it worked just fine. As always, whoever gets the bay leaf in their broth cup, does the dishes!

Slow Cooker Split Pea Sausage Soup

Reviewed: Sep. 9, 2011
Let me start by saying we loved this soup and it was even better the NEXT day, but I did make some changes. First, I only used about 5 cups of organic chicken broth which I think makes all the difference in the world. It's richer, bolder flavor adds to the soup in ways powdery bouillon simply cannot. I also used fresh garlic and skinless turkey sausage. The split peas I used cooked down until they were smashed to a pulp creating a very traditional pea soup in just over 5 hours.

Hearty Pasta Tomato Soup

Reviewed: Aug. 25, 2011
This recipe was a surprise hit with Mr. MVP. He loved it. I cut the recipe in half and used ground turkey (seasoned with garlic, basil and rosemary) rolled into small meatballs that I simply tossed into the broth after I browned them in a pan. We used organic pasta filled with ricotta cheese to cut down on the sodium and eliminate the preservatives. I used fresh tomatoes and homemade broth, but I followed the recipe exactly for the amounts. We'll be eating this again and again!

Smooth Sweet Tea

Reviewed: Jul. 9, 2011
We used this as a simple guideline for our tea. The baking soda trick was extremely helpful! We used 2 cold tea bags and 2 quarts of water which we steeped for 3 minutes. We added a little less than 1/4 cup of sugar and had the perfect ice cold sweet tea! No fuss here :)

JIF® Irresistible Peanut Butter Cookies

Reviewed: Feb. 9, 2011
A perfectly chewy peanut butter cookie. My brother the PB cookie snob loves these. I make them with organic peanut butter and plain crisco and they turn out perfectly. I don't flatten them completely with a fork, however. A slight indentation gives them nice texture, but leaves each cookie thick and chewy in the center.

Honey Wheat Bread I

Reviewed: Feb. 5, 2011
I followed the recipe exactly, but next time I will add more honey and yeast. I am an experienced baker and the dough took nearly 4 hours to rise. It's a keeper, but only with modifications.

Slow Cooker Pulled Pork

Reviewed: Jan. 30, 2011
Excellent. We used Boylan Root Beer because it has no high fructose corn syrup and then used Stubb's Bar-B-Q Sauce for the same reason. We cooked the pork for 5 hours, drained the root beer added the Stubb's and cooked for an hour longer. Amazing!

French Bread

Reviewed: Jan. 23, 2011
The changes I made were: 1. 1 tsp sugar 2. 4 tsp instant yeast 3. 4 cups flour 4. 2 TBSP unsalted butter 5. 2 cups water 6. 2 tsp salt Throw the whole lot into a Professional KA mixer and knead for 5 minutes. Let rise for 45 minutes. Shape into two loaves and place in french bread pan. Let rise for 30 more minutes and bake at 350. **The flour content is individual for each person because it depends on location. Start off slowly and add in however much you need. Everyone is going to need different amounts of flour!**
