Laura's Quick Slow Cooker Turkey Chili

Reviewed: Nov. 9, 2008
This was really good! I did change it a little like others did by using only one can of soup and a can of diced tomatoes with chiles. I also replaced the pepper flakes with 2 seeded, chopped jalapeno peppers, which gave it a nice spicy tang. It was super easy to throw together and very yummy! Recommended!

Slow-Cooker Chicken Tortilla Soup

Reviewed: Nov. 25, 2008
This TOTALLY hit the spot on a cold evening... Followed recipe exactly except I just put the chicken pieces in whole, removed & shredded them an hour or so before it was done, then returned them to the cooker... came out fantastic, the whole family loved it! ........I have made this 3 more times since the first review and has been a hit every time! A must try for any soup lover!..... Also, I was having company over and wanted to make it stretch a little farther so I added a can of black beans, turned out fabulous too!

Sweet Potato Casserole II

Reviewed: Dec. 5, 2008
I made this recipe for Thanksgiving...I used 3 one pound cans of cut sweet potatoes instead of fresh ones because I was in a hurry. I kept measurements and all the same, but I did only use 1/2 a bag of marshmallows. Not many people at the meal normally like sweet potatoes but the ones that do, ate it and said it was pretty good. My son said it tasted like pie.

Slow-Cooker Pepper Steak

Reviewed: Dec. 5, 2008
YUM, yum, YUM!!! I followed this recipe exactly and it was quite tasty. I do recommend not adding the peppers and onions until the last hour because otherwise they will pretty much disappear into the dish. Also next time I think I will also add a pepper flakes or cayenne because our family likes spicy things and may even add some mushroom wedges. My son who usually can't stand anything that has steak because "it is too chewy", ate 2 helpings and raved on how the steak just melted in his mouth! VERY good, our family will eat this again!

Pork Chops with Blue Cheese Gravy

Reviewed: Dec. 29, 2008
I didn't have any pork chops so I sliced up a pork tenderloin but followed the recipe exactly... all I can say is OMG Delightful! Even my extremely picky 4 year old ate it and loved the sauce... very decadent and delicious! Recommended!

Charley's Slow Cooker Mexican Style Meat

Reviewed: Dec. 29, 2008
I stumbled upon this recipe while looking for something a bit different than the "traditional" pot roast for this cut of meat and was pleasantly surprised. Mine turned out a bit watery but it was good... instead of using red pepper/hot sauce I used a bottle of tabasco's green pepper sauce... it had a little bit of heat but not molten like some have complained about.

Slow-Cooked Sweet 'n' Sour Pork

Reviewed: Dec. 29, 2008
I followed this recipe exactly, except I left the peppers and onions out until the last hour or so to avoid them turning to mush... this turned out to be pretty good. Left me wanting more veggies in it but that can be easily done next time. Enjoyable.

Tangy Slow Cooker Pork Roast

Reviewed: Jan. 7, 2009
All I can say is MMMMMmmmmMMMMMM! Whole family loved it... served with brown basmati rice and steamed broccoli. I found it to be more sweet than tangy but that is ok, it was good, I did reduce the sugar by half like I had read in another review. Will make again, definately!!!

Brooklyn Girl's Penne Arrabiata

Reviewed: Jan. 12, 2009
I did everything the recipe called for except I used chicken tenders instead of cutlets and used seasoned bread crumbs on top of adding the garlic powder, salt and pepper. Also, I didn't add the chicken to the sauce, just mixed the noodles into the sauce and placed the chicken on top of pasta to keep them crunchy. I personally am not too fond of tomatoey sauces but this was really Yummy! The sauce had heat but not too hot, even my 11 year old who hates hot stuff liked it, even went back for seconds. The whole family loved it! I will make this again soon!

Asian Tuna Patties

Reviewed: Feb. 1, 2009
These were ok... I personally couldn't taste the tuna in them, just the soy/teriyaki... perhaps I mixed it too much but they were a bit mushy on the inside... actually my oldest absolutely loved them, gobbled them up actually, the rest of us ate them but didn't have a lot to say.

Chicken Florentine Casserole

Reviewed: Feb. 3, 2009
Ok, even my vegetable-loathing son loved this! He actually ate 2 helpings! That may not mean much to you, but for me, just plain amazing. I took the advice of others and saute`d the spinach and mushrooms together with just a little garlic and put it on the bottom. Then I just took some raw chicken tenders and chopped them into bite size pieces and placed them on top of the spinach, then topped with the sauce... Baked at 350 for 20-25 minutes, then topped with mozzarella and bumped up the heat to 400 for another 10 minutes. I also used a 16 oz. bag of chopped spinach, well drained, instead of the canned because I find canned spinach to be mushy and was afraid it would turn everyone off by its appearance. Served on top of thin spaghetti seasoned with a little butter, fresh parsley, garlic and pepper... Way easy and Definately a Yum-O dish!

Sesame Shrimp

Reviewed: Feb. 3, 2009
I did what some others did and cooked the shrimp in the marinade along with some chopped broccoli, slivered carrots, sliced mushroom and sliced green onion. It wasn't fantastic but not bad either, not much different than other stir-fries I have thrown together... I do realize it wasn't meant to be a stir-fry so I will probably try it again and follow recipe as it is called for... Good enough to try again... thanks!

Slow Cooker Chicken and Dumplings

Reviewed: Feb. 21, 2009
I am giving this recipe 3-stars because we didn't find it to be fantastic but it wasn't bad either. Only thing I did differently is... I added some frozen mixed veggies and just a little salt, pepper and minced fresh parsley to the sauce. I also cooked the chicken and before adding the biscuit (only used 1 can, and it seemed to be more than enough) I removed the chicken and shredded it... which made it nice to be able to just dig in when it was ready. Seemed to taste a little like something you could get from a box. Trust me, that's not a bad thing, this recipe was super simple and tasty enough... I will just have to do some thinking on how to change it up just a tad to excite "my" family... Thanks for the recipe just the same! :)

Hamburgers and Ketchup Gravy

Reviewed: Feb. 21, 2009
I personally thought this recipe was very tasty, the family wasn't big on the sweet sauce but that dislike has nothing to do with the quality of this recipe. I found it to be very remanicent of Costco's meatloaf they have for ready to bake meals, which I also enjoy but now I can make it at home myself! Thanks for the recipe!!!

Perfect Sesame Chicken

Reviewed: Feb. 22, 2009
All I can say is WOWZERS!!! This is one fantastic recipe... my entire family loved it! Even the husband who really hates chicken! I changed very little about the recipe... I used just 1/2 a cup of sugar (because we are watching our sugar intake levels) and rice wine vinegar instead of distilled because that is what I had on hand! Best Sesame Chicken Ever!!! Definately Restaurant Quality and Easy! Will become a regular on our table! Thanks so much for the recipe!

Chicago-Style Pan Pizza

Reviewed: Feb. 26, 2009
Yummy! Couldn't find frozen bread dough so I used 2 packages of refrigerated pizza dough. I also took the advice of others and baked the crust for 15 minutes before adding the toppings, and used Italian-style diced tomatoes on top of seasonings, turned out wonderful! Will make this again soon! Thanks for the recipe!

Smothered Mexican Lasagna

Reviewed: Mar. 1, 2009
This was pretty good, I think the only reason I wasn't thrilled with it was because I really don't like the texture of ricotta cheese personally... if I make this again, will have to think about what I can replace it with... the family enjoyed it overall, thanks for the recipe!

Baked Ziti I

Reviewed: Mar. 22, 2009
This was good, REAL good... I followed a lot of recommendations and put the sauce directly on the pasta. Also to sneak some veggies into the dish, I sauted up some mushrooms, garlic and a 10 oz. package of frozen chopped spinach and layered it in middle with the provolone and sour cream. Even my 4 year old NO VEGGIES!!! eater ate this... will make again :)

Asian Ground Beef and Pepper Saute

Reviewed: Mar. 22, 2009
I found this to be pretty tasty but I don't think it was 5 star worthy... It was good, especially if you are looking for a fast, a little different, tasty dinner! Thanks for the recipe!
