Slow Cooker Stuffing

Reviewed: Dec. 4, 2011
This recipe worked out great for me as is, although I added 3 different kinds of mushrooms because we LOVE mushrooms. I totally agree that the amount of broth depends on the type of bread you use (whole grain more, white less; dry cubes more, fresh less). But what I don't get is those folks who say that they stirred the mixture every hour while cooking. Anyone who takes the cover off the crock pot during cooking, EVEN ONCE, EVEN TO PEEK (that's why they have glass covers!), defeats 90% of the purpose and benefits of crock pot cooking -- moisture retention, proper temp retention, flavor infusion, start-it-and-forget-it ease of cooking, etc. This goes for anything you cook in a crock pot. As this recipe says, you stir all the ingredients in a mixing bowl until moistened, then transfer to the crock pot, cover, and cook on low for 4 to 8 hours. Perhaps every crock pot recipe needs to add the phrase "AND DO NOT REMOVE THE COVER FOR ANY REASON WHILE COOKING!"

Creamy Slow Cooker Potato Cheese Soup

Reviewed: Oct. 29, 2011
There's a reason many are complaining about the "grainy" or "gooey" texture of this soup. NEVER use a blender or food processor to mash potatoes. There are starch packets inside the potato cells and the blender blades rip right through them, releasing the starch and this makes the potatoes into library paste. Mash the potatoes in this recipe by hand the old-fashioned way to your desired consistency and it will turn out fine.

Slow Cooker Cream of Potato Soup

Reviewed: Mar. 17, 2012
Too many leeks, and under no circumstances would I ever put potatoes in a blender or food processor or mash or cream. They will turn to a thick gluey mess.

The Real Mojito

Reviewed: May 18, 2013
The recipe ingredients call for club soda, yet the instructions say to fill the glass with "carbonated water." Club soda and carbonated water are two very different things.
