Slow Cooker Venison Stew

Reviewed: Jan. 7, 2009
I made this recipe with a few changes and it turned out delicious. After looking at the recipe again, I've noticed that I forgot to add the parsley~ even though I have some growing in my house! LOL I think that would have added even more flavor. Like others here, I added potatoes and carrots with the other ingredients and cut the venison down to 1 pound. I didn't have tomato sauce, basil, or oregano so I substituted 1 small can each of pizza sauce and V-8. I cooked the stew overnight for about 8 hours on low, but the vegetables weren't quite done when I checked it in the morning so I turned the slow cooker on high and cooked the stew for about 2 more hours. At the very end I added 1 cup of frozen peas. It is an excellent, flavorful stew and I recommend the recipe to anyone who is cooking with venison.

Chocolate Chip Date Cake

Reviewed: Feb. 12, 2009
I wanted to try this recipe because it is similar to a cake my late grandma used to make when we were kids. I made it for a get-together with some friends. I took the advice of another reviewer and paired it with some good vanilla ice cream. I normally don't care for cake and ice cream together, but this combination is heavenly! Everything about this cake is good, and the crunchy sugar on top is a real plus, too. Everyone seemed to really like the cake. The main difference between this cake and my grandmother's is that this one had more chocolate chips. My adult daughter had a piece of the leftovers and she thought there were too many chocolate chips on it, so that is something to consider. The only things I did different from the recipe are that I used 1 cup of pecans, instead of 1/2 cup, and I may have inadvertently added a little less flour than what is recommended (but I think that may have worked in my favor because the cake was extra moist). This is a great cake and if you do have leftovers, try heating a piece up in the microwave for 15 seconds or so~ yum!

Outrageous Chocolate Chip Cookies

Reviewed: Oct. 15, 2012
The cookies turned out very nice. I added a bit more peanut butter and a few more chocolate chips. The texture was a little different with the oats, but they were still delicious!

Triple Berry Sorbet

Reviewed: Jan. 23, 2012
This sorbet is extra yummy and delicious! I followed the recipe as written and it turned out wonderfully! I made the sorbet for a ladies luncheon and everyone loved it. I was worried because one reviewer wrote that it was too sweet, but for us it was a perfect blend of sweet and sour. The flavor profile is somewhat complicated, and I really like that. The recipe makes a good amount; it just fit into my small ice cream maker. The machine churned for about 45-50 minutes. The recipe is a bit involved, but well worth it for a special occasion. FYI- I squeezed 4 small limes (slightly warmed in the microwave) to get the 1/2 cup of lime juice. Also, I ate the pulp~ I just couldn't let it go to waste. I bet this sorbet would be a delicious summer drink with a little tequila poured over it.

Chocolate Sauce

Reviewed: Nov. 17, 2008
This is a very good recipe that is quick and can be made from ingredients that cooks commonly have on hand. The only changes I made were to reduce the water to 1 cup, and to cook the mixture for about five minutes instead of one. It thickens up after cooling and I thought the flavor changed for the better after it sat in the fridge for a few hours. Very yummy!
