Mom's Zucchini Bread

Reviewed: Aug. 12, 2014
I loved it and it's my first time making it. I actually used coconut oil instead. There was something missing, I can't pinpoint it I wanted it to taste a bit more like one I've had before. I wanted it to be heavier, darker, more shiny. anyone know how to make it heavier? First time making Zucchini bread, my husband loved it, so did I. Next time I'll add some carrots. They also come out great in the mini muffin pan.

Baked Slow Cooker Chicken

Reviewed: Jan. 20, 2011
Amazing!! I made some changes. I did a dry rub cumin, salt, pepper, paprika, thyme and garlic powder. All recipes has some great slow cooker tips and ideas. I kept the skin on rubbed under the skin and on top of the skin. I minced garlic cloves put that under the skin too. I also took some whole pieces of garlic and chopped an onion and stuffed it inside. Instead of using foil, I used cut potatoes to line the slow cooker. I also rubbed the bird down with some olive oil. It was about 5 pounds, it almost didn’t fit in my cooker! So I sprayed the sides of the slow cooker with cooking spray so it wouldn’t stick. I cooked it on high for an hour and then switched it low for about 8 hours. Cook it with the skin on and rub underneath the skin in order to have a flavorful chicken. It was hard to transfer because it literally fell apart it was so moist. I didn’t add any liquid it wasn’t needed. I used the leftover juices to make gravy, I just added some flour, it didn’t need anything else. Words of advice- pull all the chicken off and separate it while it’s still warm to hot. It’s hard to do that the next day. I’m using some of the leftovers to make chicken pot pie.

Best Cream Of Broccoli Soup

Reviewed: Jan. 20, 2011
This came out really good and really tasty. Always read the reviews from other people such great ideas. I mashed the broccoli and ended up put it in a blender and pulsed lightly. I cooked some turkey bacon and crumbled some in each serving. It was very filling. I also added some salt and garlic powder.

Pumpkin Turkey Chili

Reviewed: Jan. 10, 2011
Woah!! So amazing. I great way to incorporate pumpkin, it gives the chili an amazing creaminess. Didn’t follow the recipe exactly…I used what I had. I didn’t have any peppers but I did use onions, I added corn and beans as well. I also used a small can of tomato sauce instead of the crushed tomatoes. I also added cumin and more salt and pepper. I didn’t do the cheese and sour cream because it didn’t need it and to cut calories but it would have been awesome with the cheese and sour cream.

Yogurt Chicken

Reviewed: Jan. 3, 2011
Hmmm…. Mine didn’t come out like the picture and it wasn’t very crunchy. But it was still good. I think I put too much yogurt because the side of the chicken that touched the pan the crust was super moist and came off the chicken. I added some shredded cheese on top of the cutlets to add flavor. It was tangy and different!

Wild Rice Stuffed Acorn Squash

Reviewed: Jan. 3, 2011
Honestly I completely did my own thing; I give it a 5 star rating because of the concept of stuffing the squash. I’ve made two different stuffings for these and they both came out great. I love using leftovers to create new meals, I don’t like to waste. The first stuffing I made was with brown rice, finely chopped mushrooms, some onion; I also threw in some leftover lean pork cooked with fresh garlic. I had some extra beef broth so I used that and some regular stuffing mix I also had left over. Make sure your stuffing has a strong flavor; the acorn squash itself has a light flavor to it. The second stuffing which I made last night- I used brown rice again, sautéed onion and left over turkey meatballs, I used a cheese grater to grate them, beef broth and stuffing mix. I wasn’t too crazy about the flavor at first so I added, garlic powder, salt and pepper, teaspoon of butter and a little milk. I don’t measure much when I do my little creations, so I wouldn’t recommend this unless you cook the same way. Constantly taste before adding new things! Hope this helps.

Angel's Old Fashioned Beef Stew

Reviewed: Nov. 23, 2010
I made my own variation. I used canned potatoes, canned mushrooms, baby carrots chopped up and boiled and regular onion ½ of one is good. Turnips or squash chunks would be an idea to add in too. No celery. I also added a cup of water while cooking so it wasn’t as thick. It may have been the water added but taste after everything is cooked, it was a tiny bit bland, but still good, nothing a little salt can’t fix!

Gourmet Sweet Potato Classic

Reviewed: Nov. 23, 2010
It came out really good, I used 2 cans of the canned yams drained. I did put some liquid to the side and added some after mixing in all the ingredients. I also didn’t put nuts in because I made it for a work party. For the crumble, I just put a layer of brown sugar and then a layer of marshmallows. BUT next time I will do the crumble topping suggested. Not super sweet but really good.

Shepherd's Pie VI

Reviewed: Nov. 12, 2010
I thought it was a great recipe, the broth and the flour gave the meat a nice creaminess. I added some garlic powder and paprika, to give it a little bit more flavor. I would add more vegetables any time I made shepherds pie I add a variety of veggies. Maybe some canned mushrooms, turnips, corn, peas. Anything to make it more hardy.

Double Layer Pumpkin Cheesecake

Reviewed: Nov. 16, 2009
Really good recipe. I used 3 egg whites instead of the 2 whole eggs. I also ran out of cream cheese I only had 12 oz of cream cheese I substituted the other 4 oz with ricotta cheese. I used fat free cream cheese. I added a layer of pecans. For some reason at the grocery store I went to the whole pecans were less expensive than the chopped. I chopped them up at home. I then drizzled caramel topping onto to it and a layer of whipped cream. I used the caramel ice cream topping. It came out delicious.

Cheddar-Thyme Flaky Biscuits

Reviewed: Jan. 26, 2009
First time biscuit maker! I really liked them. Didn’t use thyme or cream of tartar. I used block cheddar and I shredded it myself, made the biscuits tastier. The dough was incredible easier to work with. I cut the circles using a disposable plastic cup, the size was perfect. Next time I think I’m going to use less sugar and maybe add some bacon into the dough. I’ll keep you posted. Hope the review helps!

Chicken Pot Pie IX

Reviewed: Jan. 26, 2009
Amazing! I’m now a chicken pot pie fan; I made it for my boyfriend’s birthday. SOOOO good. I made a few alternations. In fear of making it too dry I followed one of the reviewer’s ideas to make double the liquid. No celery seed and no celery, not a fan. I did add some mushrooms to the veggie mix. I used pearl onions instead of chopped onion. I cooked the mushrooms, pearl onions and I added bacon to them to give it some extra flavor. I double the flour, butter, salt, pepper and milk. If you use bacon like I did go easy on the salt, it could be too salty. As for the chicken broth I used 2.5 cups I didn’t want to make too much liquid. TASTE the mixture before putting it in your pie; it won’t change much after it’s cooked. Remember the chicken and veggies are not seasoned, so your sauce should be pretty flavorful. If you make the mixture as thick as I did it’s going to sit on top of the chicken and veggie mix, do not fear it will sink down when you cook it. Enjoy! Hope the tips help!

Oven-Baked Caramel French Toast

Reviewed: Jan. 26, 2009
Came out great! I made half the amount for me and my boyfriend. It made four nice size portions. I used Challah bread and it came out great. I split all the ingredient measurements in half and refrigerated overnight. When I make it again I will use the FULL egg mixture (step 3 of the directions). The Challah was a little dry on the top layer. Caramel Sauce was great and so easy! Thank you for submitting this recipe.
