Slow Cooker Adobo Chicken

Reviewed: Sep. 6, 2002
I used a whole chicken once, VERY oily feeling. I have used skinless/boneless chicken breast and prefer it that way. I guess I could try skinning the chicken because I like to use the bones for broth... For the record a 4+ lb chicken only gave 2 lbs meat! I added the brown sugar 1/2c but honestly don't think it made a difference! I think the soy sauce is perfect. Didn't have a problem with the smell either. USE WHITE VINEGAR!!! Great for toddlers because it's been slow cooked the meat is VERY tender. Easy for them to tear apart and chew. I have a one year old and a two year old and they loved this. Used 2 1/2 c of the juice from this with 1 1/2 rice with big onion chunks (I like to remove mine when done kids won't eat them!), bring to a boil then simmer 20 min with lid on. Add about 1/4 c chopped fresh parsley and you've got a wonderful rice pilaf to accompany your chicken!!! PERFECT!

Served with a little grated parmesan cheese on top. Yummy!

Pot Roast in Foil

Reviewed: Apr. 29, 2004
Ok so I didn't follow the recipe exactly... I decided my husband after many weeks of eating recipes made for toddlers (who only like things smothered in cheese or on bread if you get my drift...LOL)deserved something a little more adult. Frankly I was in the mood to do something else too. This recipe looked simple and perfect. I didn't have the right meat so I pulled out three boneless eye round steak to thaw. Then when I was putting it together I found my husband had used the last can of cream of anything soup in yesterdays casserole and had not told me so I used regular condensed tomato soup. I figured with the change in taste it probably could use a bit of spicing so I added probably 2 t. worcestershire sauce and a small can of chopped mushrooms (drained) over the top. The onion soup mix and foil I actually had! Go figure. Anyway I ran short on time so I put the heat at 375F and cut the time to 2 hours although 1.5 hours probably would have been enough. It tasted great! It was firm to cut but actually very soft in your mouth. Next time I would add more W. sauce and cut the cooking time. I would also suggest trying this in a crock pot/slow cooker to keep some of the juice, mine leaked out everywhere. My husband's comment was that it tasted very "professional".

Honey Syrup

Reviewed: May 26, 2013
This was DELISH! Used this on Belgian waffles and it was awesome. Kids loved it. You need very little to get the flavor because it is strong.

Double Quick Dinner Rolls

Reviewed: Apr. 29, 2004
I really like this recipe. It is quick as far as breads go and they turn out great! We love them. I double the recipe, sometimes triple; cut the cooking time down just a bit so they're not completely done and browned and freeze them. Then when we want them with dinner I pull out enough for my family and pop them in a toaster oven to warm them up and completely cook them. I leave the onion powder out, the first time I used it and didn't like it. They're more like dinner rolls without it and I like to sneak them with jam.

Chocolate Gravy II

Reviewed: Jun. 20, 2010
My 16 yo sister made this and it came out great! She has no cooking ability so that's saying something. This is THE recipe to use for Father's Day! LOL Oh she added 1 t. vanilla. Apparently someone else here suggested it. thanks for the tip, it DID help thicken it according to her.

Easy Streusel Coffee Cake

Reviewed: Jul. 6, 2004
This cake turned out great although I did make a few changes. I didn't have plain yogurt so I used sour cream. Didn't have any nuts so just left those out (would have been good with them though...). I cheated when it came to cooking, it was for breakfast and we were all starving so I put this in the microwave for 6min 30sec in the tupperware stack cooker base w/cone. I did pour some olive oil onto a paper towel and wipe it down so it wouldn't stick (never believe non-stick promises! LOL). Came out great! Held together nicely, no crumbling at all, and moist. I served this with a little bit of cinnamon role icing drizzled on top and with slices of fresh kiwi. (And each kid got a scrambled egg, can't have them filling up on cake now can we?) Next time if I am braver I would layer the kiwi slices in the baking dish on the bottom and the middle to see how well that comes out. They complimented each other so well!

Sylvia's Birthday Cake

Reviewed: May 11, 2015
I made this last night for breakfast. My teenage daughter actually loaded this into our bread machine! Liquids first, ran on cake setting. I did add a 1/4 cup of craisins just to make it more breakfast-y. I also used agave instead of sugar (in pregnant on a special diet that's not fun) same measurement. It came out great! Slices well, not crumbly, but fluffy and moist. Would be good with just a little butter, powdered sugar, frosted, honey, cinnamon... Very light flavor. Perfect. Thanks!

Pizza Dough I

Reviewed: Dec. 31, 2002
This turned out perfect! My husband can even do this one by himself. We found we liked it a little more if we let it rise for about half an hour before baking (already rolled out onto the pizza stone). Not so great for breadsticks in my opinion but the rest of my family found them fabulous. Definently give this one a try for homemade pizza.

Norwegian Flat Bread

Reviewed: Jan. 13, 2009
YUM!!! I follow this recipe exactly but cook like pancakes on a griddle just because it's faster. They are crunchy outside and a little more like gyro/pita bread on the inside. Perfect for my Hummus!!! Made several times over, perfect every time. THANKS FOR A GREAT RECIPE!!!

Jacky's Fruit and Yogurt Muffins

Reviewed: May 27, 2003
This recipe is awesome! I made these in a mini-muffin pan and found that I could turn the oven down 250F and cook for 16 min and they'd be done. It makes two pans. Don't fill the cup too full or it will have a flat top instead of puffing up nucely.

Baked Applesauce

Reviewed: Nov. 1, 2009
Kids had so much fun with this one! I think the flavor was much better than a traditional boiled recipe. The flavor was intense! I would cut back on the sugar, it definently didn't need as much. We cut our apples in rings using a corer + knife. Will be making this again and again! Try using it as a desert filling or in pie or as we did with a crumb topping, vanilla ice cream, and caramel sauce!

Hummus III

Reviewed: Jan. 13, 2009
I LOVE hummus so this was great to try. I did not have Tahini (good luck finding it here) but did everything else and even my children love to eat this. So yummy and so healthy, an absolute favorite. Great with Norweigen Flat Bread. And filling too!
