Crispy Edamame

Reviewed: Feb. 18, 2013
Awesomely addictive. I bought a package of fresh (not frozen) shelled edamame at Trader Joe's and thought I'd try this. Used the parchment paper on a baking sheet as was suggested by another user. Baked it for 15 minutes, then stirred it all around and baked for another 15. Tasty and nice and crispy. Stored in an airtight container in my fridge, although I doubt they will last. Probably going back to TJ's this week to get more and make a huge batch!

Easy Pepperoni Bread

Reviewed: Apr. 13, 2011
I followed this recipe but made a few changes. I used turkey pepperoni, added extra cheese (6 oz wasn't enough, IMO), and I omitted the egg and brushed it with EVOO instead. I didn't roll it quite tight enough so I know to do that next time. It tasted really great, even though it didn't look perfect. I will definitely make this was a hit with my family. We ate it plain without the extra marinara but I bet that would be tasty also. I plan to make another version with spinach and feta next time!!

Slow Cooker Thanksgiving Turkey

Reviewed: Jan. 17, 2011
Made this today using a 9 lb bone in turkey breast. It was still partially frozen when I put it in the pot, so the lid didn't fit. Covered the pot with tin foil for the first hour until it cooked down enough to use the lid. I doubled all of the other ingredients since the meat was almost twice the size recommended...used the gravy packet that came with the turkey breast and also a jar from the store. I omitted the bacon - didn't have any. I didn't miss it. I also didn't have garlic pepper, so I used half black pepper and half garlic powder, which worked well. Cooked it on low for 8 hours, then let it sit on the warm setting for about an hour until I finished up the sides. I served it with stuffing, jelled cranberries, mashed potatoes, corn and crescent rolls. I drained the gravy and juice from the pot after I took the turkey out (turkey literally fell apart) and whipped up a thick gravy on the stove by adding a few tablespoons of cornstarch. Also used a slow cooker liner and there is virtually NO cleanup. This is a good recipe. Not sure I would replace the regular oven turkey with this at Thanksgiving, but it is a good recipe for other times of the year when you are in the mood for turkey. Both my 2 and 4 year olds ate it right up. Looking forward to making something with the leftovers for the next couple of nights.

Slow Cooker Ham

Reviewed: Jan. 10, 2011
I made this today using a 7.5 lb semi boneless ham. It was already fully cooked (and it was smoked) and then frozen. I thawed the ham before putting it in the crockpot. I followed the recipe - put 1 1/2 cups of brown sugar in the bottom of the pot, then set the ham in on top of it, cut side down. I only had enough regular brown sugar for the bottom of the pot, so I used another 1/2 cup of Splenda brown sugar to rub on the ham. Finally, I sprinkled a bit of cinnamon, a bit of nutmeg and a bit of ginger over the top of the sugar layer on the ham (probably about a 1/2 tsp of each). I put the pot on low and let it go for 8 hours. I was surprised at the amount of liquid - the pot was about half full of it. The ham was not sliced and I pulled it out in several chunks, as it was very moist and tender and basically fell off the bone. The taste was outstanding. I made some mashed potatoes and some scalloped apples to serve along with the ham for tonight's dinner. I used a slow cooker liner so clean up was pretty simple as well. We have a ton of ham left over, but we also have a lot of sides...hoping to eat at least another dinner out of this - hopefully maybe 2. I am very picky about crockpot recipes and there are very few I LOVE and then make again. I will be making this one again, however. I was not disappointed. Even my picky 4 year old ate the ham right up, and he doesn't like anything. Definitely a winner in my house.
