Awesome Slow Cooker Pot Roast

Reviewed: Aug. 15, 2002
BADA-BING! I have been making this recipe for quite some time now, with the exception of the cream of mushroom soup. The soup adds that OOMPH to the gravy that I have been looking for! I used beef broth instead of the water, & added 2 TBSP of corn starch to thicken it up before serving. In the last 3 hours cooking in the crock pot I added fresh carrots, green beans, potatoes & sliced onions. YUM! The family LOVES it & when my neighbors find out I'm making it, they always take dibs on the leftovers! Thanks Brenda!!

Taco Seasoning I

Reviewed: Jul. 16, 2002
I substituted 1/8 tsp. of cayenne pepper for the red pepper flakes, and my VERY PICKY 12 year old daughter loved it in our homemade taco dip & taco's as well! (I would however suggest maybe just the 1 tsp. of cumin). We figured out that 21/2 - 3 tablespoons = one 1.25 oz. packet, which I will NEVER go back to! Thanks so much Bill!

Breakfast Pies

Reviewed: Oct. 26, 2002
These were good, however it turned into a FIASCO! What ever you do, do not use "Grands" as your biscuit dough. They rose so much that the egg mixture spilled over the sides & burnt on the bottom of the oven. I love the idea, and next time will bake them in individual remikins. Thanks Jeanne!

Grandma's Chicken Noodle Soup

Reviewed: Dec. 22, 2002
Well if you attempt to make this soup, do so using your common sense. If you don't like things salty, well then omit some of the salt, because it is obvious that the broth will pretty much contain any salt needed. I used my own broth from scratch & added carrots (whats chicken soup without carrots?) I used small pasta shells (out of egg noodles - sick of shopping), which I didn't add oil to. Salt to taste after the starch, because that is when your going to need it. Thanks & Happy Holidays!!

Zucchini Brownies

Reviewed: May 1, 2003
GREAT recipe Marian!! I must say that I was VERY skeptical of these not only because of the zucchini/no egg, but because after I mixed the ingredients, they looked well, I'll just say..less than desirable (my zucchini may have been a bit "dry"). I had to "press" them into the dish, not "pour" so I was a bit concerned. The end result was FANTASTIC, not to mention a great way to sneak in zucchini, the kids had NO clue that it was even there! I left out the nuts, baby has an allergy, and added 1/2 cup of choc. chips. Since there weren't any eggs either (allergy) he was able to enjoy! Thanks for sharing this great recipe, we LOVED them!!

Awesome Pasta Salad

Reviewed: Jan. 28, 2003
I make this all the time & we LOVE it (especially my father-in-law)! I use tri color rotini, grape tomatoes, pepperonchinis instead of the green peppers, and some chunked red onion. I also use a whole 16 oz. bottle Wishbone "Robust Italian Dressing". I learned that if you "dry" (like pat them with a clean dish or paper towels to get the water off) the noodles, the dressing will really stick a lot better. Pour 1/2 the dressing on right away, refridgerate, and pour the other 1/2 on before serving prevents it from drying out (the noodle will soak up the dressing). Delicious, it goes great with Italian beef. Thanks Desiree!

Garlic Butter

Reviewed: Sep. 26, 2002
YYYUUMM!! I cut the recipe in half, subbed 1 tsp of garlic powder & 1/4 tsp salt for the garlic salt, it was perfect! My 11 year old son told me that it was the best garlic bread he ever had! Next time I will sprinkle the paprika on top instead of mixing it in, like my mom used to! Thanks Denyse!!

Annie's Fruit Salsa and Cinnamon Chips

Reviewed: Aug. 31, 2002
Very tasty! I cut the sugars in half, used plain ol' grape jelly and added blueberries...YUM. After I sprayed & sugared the chips, I stuffed them in my mini muffin tins so that they had the "scoop" affect & everybody raved. I also doubled the chip amount, they went quick! The salsa would also be good with angel food cake or even pound cake, mmmmmm. Thanks Annie!

Banana Crumb Muffins

Reviewed: Aug. 19, 2002
This is a very moist & tasty recipe. My 1 year old is allergic to eggs, so I omitted the egg & added an extra banana to the mixture & it turned out AWESOME! I used mini muffin tins & my 11 year old son gobbled them up! Next time, I too will hold off on the topping until the last 5 minutes of baking - Thanks Lisa!!

Buttery Cooked Carrots

Reviewed: Nov. 7, 2002
These are tasty carrots. For as much as I am hip on conveinence, I cut up regular carrots vs. using baby carrots, they just have much more flavor. Anyway, I melted the brown sugar with the butter (skipping the water) & added it to the steamed carrots & it was fine. Thanks Rebecca, for the sweet treat!

Skillet Ham, Cabbage and Potatoes

Reviewed: Mar. 12, 2003
At the risk of sounding like I have nothing better to do, I made this 2 ways tonight. One way was per recipe, with finely chopped cabbage, (for my kids who "claim" not to like it, they liked it this time) and the second was with quartered cabbage, & with fresh polish sausage from my AWESOME butcher (my mom always told me to "make friends with the butcher" & it has paid off) for my husband & I. WOW, I halved the butter & cooked the sausage with the potatoes & onion then added the cabbage for 5 min. GREAT! I had a nice long lunch out with my sisters today & this was a nice easy meal to make up lost time with!! The kids enjoyed their version & we enjoyed ours as well..sooo easy! Thanks Priscilla!!

Alaska Salmon Bake with Pecan Crunch Coating

Reviewed: Apr. 30, 2002
I am completely addicted to this! I used already prepared honey mustard (I bought from tastefully simple), mixed the bread crumbs in with the mustard mixture it was FANTASTIC! Thank goodness my Dad goes Salmon fishing & shares his catch with me (it's best with fresh Salmon). Thanks so much Chris, this is better than what I've paid $25 for in a resturant!

Easy Chili I

Reviewed: Feb. 1, 2003
Nice easy chili, this is almost the same chili that I grew up on (with the exemption of the jalapenos). I used 1 tbsp of cumin, 1/2 tsp of oregano and 2 cloves of garlic, although it coulda used 3. I seeded the jalapeno and didn't find it that hot, so next time I will just chop up the whole thing and add maybe 3 tbsp. of chili powder (the way mom used to). As with all sauces & chili make sure that you adjust the seasonings before serving. (I am full from all the taste testing, so I had to skip dinner tonight, tomorrows lunch for me). Thanks for the easy recipe Danielle!

Slow Cooker Stuffing

Reviewed: Sep. 9, 2002
AWESOME!!! If you use your common sense this will NOT turn out soggy. The recipe says 4 1/2 cups of broth OR AS NEEDED DEPENDING ON HOW DRY YOUR BREAD IS. I did in fact use 1/2 of the broth called for & kept it on low for 4 hours... PERFECT! Just like it was from the bird, the picky family loved it! Thanks for making my life simple Gayle!!

French Bread

Reviewed: Oct. 2, 2002
I'll put it to you this way, this recipe made 2 loaves, I planned on serving it with dinner. When I took it out of the oven I "decided" that I had to be the guinea pig, or pig if you will, because I ate half of 1 loaf. Then the kids came home from school & they polished off the first loaf, and the second was a quarter gone. Hubby came home from work & snagged a chunk (suprising because he's not the biggest bread fan), & before I knew it, the four of us (baby had regular bread..egg alergy) were sharing 1/4 of the second loaf with dinner; all staring at it, nobody wanting to "grab" because deep down we all knew that we had eaten our share. This was AWESOME, I sprinkled sesame seeds on the top after adding the egg white. LOVE IT, THANKS MUCH Jenn!!!

Amazing Ribs

Reviewed: Jan. 25, 2003
My husband is a BIG rib fan, however he is not big on change, (where as myself, the decorator, LOVES change). Well I always make these (actually the same recipe) using a coke, but being a beer lover, who am I to pass this up? I skipped the whole pre-cook thing & just stuck them in the crock pot (on low) for about 5 hours and they were so tender that I could pull the bone out without a problem. I used Bubba's Best BBQ Sauce (from this site) with this, and Tom loved them! Thanks Scotty!

Stuffed Peppers

Reviewed: Jul. 3, 2002
Very good, I added onion & garlic as well, YUM! I "microwave steam" the pepper (in my Pampered Chef micro steamer...I love it) for mine, but my hubby likes them cooked per the recipe (a little crisp) he loves them! Sometimes I mix 1/2 beef & 1/2 pork. Thanks Bonnie!!

Incredibly Easy Chicken and Noodles

Reviewed: Oct. 17, 2002
Incredibly easy & good! This went over without a problem, (well until my daughter noticed the mushroom pieces from the soup). I used a 12 oz. box of Barilla egg noodles (eggless abc's for allergic baby) and it was perfect. Next time I'll add some broccoli & carrot strips. Thanks Tammy!

French Fried Potatoes

Reviewed: Oct. 1, 2003
Okay gang for those who think it's odd to soak them in warm water...well the warm water is merely to dissolve the sugar. After the sugar is dissolved I add some ice and then do the soaking. These fries are the best. I have baked these (spraying with pam & seasoning w/ garlic salt) as well as fried them and they are always a hit. Thanks Lorelei!

Homemade Shake and Bake Mixture

Reviewed: Mar. 3, 2003
I am more than thrilled that I found this recipe! My husband is a shake & bake freak (not to mention my baby has an egg allergy), and as I like fried foods, I'm NO good at doing it...at all! Well, this recipe is just as good, if not better than store bought, the chicken was very tender. I took another reviewers advise & cut the salt in 1/2 (because of the celery & garlic salts) but next time I will use the correct amount of salt & cut the celery salt in 1/2. Thanks so much Sara, for the recipe & saving me some cash!
