Slow Cooker Turkey Chili

Reviewed: Oct. 27, 2014
This was alright... I have to admit it is far from our favorite turkey chili recipe. Going to stick to the the other one but everyone has different tastes, right?

Easy Marinated Pork Tenderloin

Reviewed: Jun. 30, 2014
I only had a pork loin, not a tenderloin. I let it marinate for 4 hours then instead of cooking it in the oven I threw it in my slow cooker for 5 1/2 hours on low. The flavors were good but I definitely think it would be even better with the intended cut of meat but the crockpot idea kept my house from getting too hot on this warm day!

Ham and Shell Salad

Reviewed: Jun. 30, 2014
This was super simple and the flavors get better the longer it sits. I personally thought it needed a little more lemon juice to help phase out the mayo flavor but like I said it got better if you let the flavors mix.

Jo's Manicotti

Reviewed: Jun. 17, 2014
This was serious YUM! I skipped the chicken bouillon because it just seemed like an odd addition to me. I also added just a small pinch of minced garlic and added about 1/2 a cup of mozzarella to the filling. I used a bottle of butternut squash pasta sauce that I had for a long time that needed using instead of tomato sauce and it was scrumptious!

Kielbasa Stew

Reviewed: Dec. 11, 2013
Considering the ingredients, I had my doubts about this recipe. My doubts were demolished and so was this stoup! It smelled amazing! I read just about every review on this recipe and considering my tastes and all, I changed just a little to try and healthy it up a little more.... by that I mean... I didn't use butter, the kielbasa is greasy enough in my opinion. I used reduced-sodium broth and didn't add any salt. Instead of just cabbage.... I used an entire bag of tricolor coleslaw mix because it needed to be used desperately or I would have had to throw it out. So using that it added carrots and purple cabbage to the mix... YUM! Some reviewers said they liked it better without the sour cream... so I served it as an option, a dollop or not, it was their choice. I preferred it with and so did everyone in my family but one. I would totally make this again. Not only was it scrumptious, it was pretty budget friendly and not to mention... speedy/minimal prep!

Slow Cooker Spicy Black-Eyed Peas

Reviewed: Nov. 27, 2013
I changed very little with this, instead of water and a bouillon cube, I just used low-sodium chicken broth because I already had a box open and why not? Also, I didn't buy bacon, I had about 1/3 jar of real bacon bits that I threw in there. I didn't add any salt because I figured the ham and bacon would be enough and I was right. This was great!

Lime Chicken Soft Tacos

Reviewed: Nov. 26, 2013
I simplified (again)! I had leftover roasted chicken and I just reheated it with the flavorings the recipe called for. The flavors were totally scrumptious! I added cilantro to the mix but didn't change much else. My children adored this and put it on the same rating as my homemade nachos, which is a HUGE compliment around here. I would love to use the chicken filling for other things too sometime. Such as nachos or perhaps chicken enchilada, tossed with pasta... endless possibilities. Very versatile and It was THAT good! Make again? Mmmmhhhmmmm!

Sweet and Sour Chicken Tenders

Reviewed: Nov. 25, 2013
The chicken was very good as written! I didn't change anything, except I thought I had tenders and I didn't, so I used chicken breasts that I cut into thick strips. Yummy!

Creamy Garlic Mushroom Chicken

Reviewed: Oct. 28, 2013
I made a few small changes for this recipe to fit my needs and my family's preferences. First, I had chicken thighs on hand so I skinned those and used that. Second, I only did about a tablespoon of light mayo and substituted about 1/2 cup of light sour cream to make up for not using so much of the mayonnaise. Third... I served the corn on the side and replaced it in the sauce with a few sliced fresh and sauteed mushrooms. Fourth, I mixed the breadcrumbs and cheddar together and used just a tad more cheese to hold it together. Yes! This recipe made a lot of sauce but my family likes saucy things so it didn't bother us one little bit... careful about added seasoning because it can become very easy to make this overly salty... We enjoyed this greatly. My teenager was jumping for joy when he found out there were a couple pieces left for lunch the next day!

Banana Boats

Reviewed: Jul. 29, 2013
These were good.... be careful if your fire is too hot, the marshmallows disappear... otherwise, very yummy. Think I am going to try it with peanut butter like another commenter mentioned.

Sweet and Sour Sauce I

Reviewed: Jul. 18, 2013
Stir-fried chopped chicken breast tenders, onion, yellow pepper, red pepper, homegrown zucchini & fresh pineapple. Served it over steamed Jasmine rice and topped with homemade sweet and sour sauce. I changed the sauce a little bit but not significantly... I used 1/4 brown sugar and 1/2 cup white, I used leftover chicken broth I had in my fridge that needed using instead of water and I used 1/4 cup ketchup upon another reviewers recommendation. Was strong but mellowed a little once served over the dish. Pretty yummy. It reminded me a lot of Kikoman's bottled sweet and sour sauce.

Chili Mac, Mexican Style

Reviewed: Jun. 19, 2013
Mkay, how do I tell you how I changed this.... not a lot but some... First, I couldn't find pablano peppers so I used pasilla peppers (are they the same? idk), in addition I had a red bell pepper that needed using so I blackened that on up too. I used whole grain pasta that was 13 oz. so I just used it all. To compensate for the extra pasta, I added a can of rotel and a can of undrained sweet corn (more veggies and color!!!). I skipped the added salt because my chorizo was plenty salty to do the trick. Since the recipe does not state when to add the chorizo again, I did it at the very end when the pasta was done. Topped it off with a small pinch of Mexican cheese blend and a small dollop of light sour cream. Pretty healthy if you make sure to drain that chorizo! Tasty too! My 8 year old came up to me and was like, "Mom that dinner was..." , didn't say anything more but puffed up his cheeks, motioned with his hands like his head was blowing up and made an exploding noise.... I said, "What was that? You mean mind blowing?" He said...."Oooohhhh Yeah!" LOL! Silly boy!

Chicken El Dermie Le Hermie

Reviewed: Jun. 3, 2013
I did two things different than the recipe called for.... One- I (or rather, I made my teenager do it) removed the skin from the chicken legs. Two- I used cooking spray instead of oil. Cooked as directed, half an hour, flipped then another 40 minutes. Turned out really good! I usually just slather these suckers in store bought bbq sauce and call it good but this is a GREAT alternative to that. Yum!

Turkey Sloppy Joes

Reviewed: May 22, 2013
What did I do different? Not much... for the veggies, I just added a whole onion, a whole green pepper and a whole medium tomato, a pinch of minced garlic and a tiny amount more of red pepper flakes.... ABSOLUTE YUM! My 15 year old said, and I quote.... "Please forgive my language but this is bomb as hell!" lol Served it with fresh corn on the cob sprinkled with low salt creole seasoning... ALRIGHT for quick finger foods!

White Chili with Ground Turkey

Reviewed: May 19, 2013
This was a decent chili but not my favorite white chili however, I did change it up a little bit. First, I only did one 15 oz. can of chicken broth to avoid it being like soup... I used 2 cans cannellini beans and one can of white beans (blended one of the cannellini). I had a red bell pepper that needed using so I added that. I only used half the amount of cinnamon (not a huge fan of it in savory dishes). And I used a taco blend for the cheese (cheddar and pepper jack blend). Served it with a dollop of sour cream, minced cilantro and tortilla chips. It was successfully consumed so I would make it again.

Limehouse Chicken

Reviewed: Apr. 28, 2013
This Limehouse Chicken was sweet and zippy! Only thing I did different was along with the paprika, I added a dash of cayenne for a smidge of bite. Also, instead of mint, I used basil ribbons to finish it off because that is what I had already chopped for the baked zucchini I served it with. Wonderful dinner!

Chicken In Sour Cream

Reviewed: Apr. 19, 2013
This was pretty good. I had 8 bone-in/skin on chicken thighs that I got for only $3.50 and was wondering what to do with them... here we are. I took the skin off the chicken but kept the bone in. I didn't add any salt because of other reviews that said it was salty. I agree, skipping the added salt was a good idea. I used low fat soup and fat free sour cream and added about 1/2 a cup of 1% milk to the sauce because it was very thick. Decided to just serve it over some veggies. Low carb meal that everyone enjoyed! :)
