Slow Cooker Lancaster County Pork and Sauerkraut

Reviewed: Jan. 4, 2009
Ok, maybe I'm partial since I was born and raised in Lancaster, PA, but I love this recipe! Eating this dish on New Year's Day is a family tradition and has continued to be even though I am now in the South. I still have friends who look at me funny when I say "pork and sauerkraut" but if I can get them to try it, they are hooked! I have just purchased a slow cooker and needed this recipe and it was perfect! Thanks!

Kathy's Roast and Vegetables

Reviewed: Jan. 4, 2009
This is the first pot roast I have done in my new slow cooker. I had a 3.5 pound bottom roast and it was done in 6 hours. I put in carrots, potatoes and a whole white onion at the beginning and they were perfect, not overdone at all. My only complaint is that I felt the meat was overshadowed by all the other flavors?? I like my roast beef to have a beef flavor and while very tender, the meat flavor didn't come through. I loved the sauce it created, but my boyfriend was looking for more of an "au jus" sauce.

Apple Crisp III

Reviewed: Jan. 4, 2009
Yum, yum, yum! My boyfriend is sitting here with a huge smile on his face while he eats this... I also did half and half regular sugar and brown sugar and it's perfect! I usually do not like apple desserts, but I tried this and really liked it! So easy too; will definitely use this for company and family.

Slow Cooker Thanksgiving Turkey

Reviewed: Jan. 11, 2009
Wow, what a very tender turkey! Mine was 4.75 pounds and was done in 6 hours. I did it the night before so it was ready to put in the slow cooker. Three of us ate this and none of us could taste the bacon (I used 4 pieces) or the Worcestershire Sauce. As most reviewers, I used the gravy packet that came with the turkey and a jar of turkey gravy. The taste and texture was phenomenal. Can't wait to see how it taste on a sandwich tomorrow!

Slow Cooker Chicken Cacciatore

Reviewed: Feb. 22, 2009
Just made this tonight for my boyfriend and his friend who came in from Ohio and all 3 of us gave it 5 stars, with a few adjustments like so many others have made. My package of chicken breasts came with 7 so I used them all. I added 1 can of diced tomatoes, 1 can of tomato paste and used oregano, basil and garlic powder. I cooked it on high for 1 hour and then 4 hours on low and it was so tender! The chicken just fell apart when I tried to take it out of the sauce. This is definitely a keeper!

Slow Cooker London Broil

Reviewed: Mar. 26, 2009
Well, I took the advice of a few and only cooked this for about 5 hours... I was quite disappointed that the meat was not very tender and I bought a very good piece of London Broil! I will try this again though, cook it a bit longer and possibly add some cut up onion. I only used half the package of soup and it was not salty at all.

Quick and Easy Sauteed Spinach

Reviewed: Mar. 26, 2009
I love spinach and this is very simple and good! Spinach basically cooks to nothing, so use at least 16 ounces for two people!

Zesty Coleslaw

Reviewed: Mar. 26, 2009
Yum, yum, yum! You can adjust the amount of horseradish if it seems a bit overpowering to you.... the only change I made was to add pepper! Very good!

Slow Cooker Spare Ribs

Reviewed: Mar. 27, 2009
I was looking so forward to this dinner and was very disappointed. I followed it to a T and it just didn't taste that great.

Best Ever Sausage with Peppers, Onions, and Beer!

Reviewed: Nov. 11, 2009
Ok, let me start by saying that based on flavor, I would give this 5 stars... based on whether it looked like the picture, it deserves 4. The pic makes it look like it turns into a true spaghetti sauce texture... I could not get it there... it was very soupy.... but, despite that, the flavor was fabulous! We served it over rice and have leftovers :) Any suggestions to make this sauce thicker?

Awesome and Easy Creamy Corn Casserole

Reviewed: Nov. 27, 2009
I also made this for Turkey Day and it was fabulous! I think I will take the suggestion of one reviewer and add a little of the water from the kernel corn since I like my casseroles just a little wetter... followed this to a T and it was great!

Best Pennsylvania Dutch Chicken Corn Soup

Reviewed: Dec. 13, 2009
OMG I've died and gone to Lancaster County, where I was born and raised! This soup is so good I can't begin to describe the excellent flavor Well worth the time it takes to put together. The only changes I made was the corn, since this time of year there is no fresh corn available, I used 3 cans of white corn, drained. I also did not use the nutmeg as my mom told me that was not in my grandmother's original recipe and only used 1 tblsp. of salt. This is the bomb and will be made over and over!

Nana's Apple Crisp

Reviewed: Dec. 27, 2009
This is the second apple crisp I have tried on this site and it was far superior than anything I have ever made. I had this for dessert for 12 people and everybody loved it! I did make just a few minor changes, like most others: I used 9 apples; I only used brown sugar; I melted all the butter and one and a halved the topping. After 50 minutes, the topping was perfect! Will definitely make this my apple crisp recipe to go to!

Chicken Florentine Casserole

Reviewed: Jan. 19, 2010
Holy cow was this scrumpdillyicious!!!! Easily a restaurant quality meal! I read many reviews and only made minor tweaks, but not changing the ingredients. I did the chicken breasts in a skillet and set aside. I then melted the butter and sauteed the spinach (one bag of fresh spinach, you could use more), mushrooms, garlic and just enough onion to taste. I didn't have italian seasoning so I improvised and used parsley, basil and oregano. As suggested, I only used about a teaspoon of the lemon juice. I served it over spaghetti. This is a keeper and will be kept in our rotation!

Ham and Bean Soup II

Reviewed: Apr. 16, 2010
First attempt at Ham and Bean Soup and had to pour a lot of the water out of this to get close to the consistency in the picture. Could use a little pick me up in taste, so may add a little hot sauce to the leftovers, but a good flavor.

Garlicky Baked Butternut Squash

Reviewed: Jun. 15, 2010
Wow, believe it or not, I have never had butternut squash until tonight. Despite it being a time consuming chore to peel the squash, this recipe made it worth the time and effort! Somebody gave me the squash out of their garden and I had no clue how to prepare it.. this was wonderful tasting and so simple!

Easy Slow Cooker French Dip

Reviewed: Jul. 25, 2010
I made this today and was pleased, but not overwhelmed. I did use a sirloin roast, put onion slices on the bottom, added garlic powder, salt, pepper and worcestershire sauce. The meat turned out very tender but I felt like the taste was missing something and couldn't put my finger on it.

Amazing Pork Tenderloin in the Slow Cooker

Reviewed: Aug. 4, 2010
Just made this dish tonight... and wow, it was scrumpdillyicious! Yes, I changed a few things and here they are: first, I did a dry rub consisting of garlic powder, pepper, paprika, italian seasoning, cayenne and basil.... then seared the meat before putting into the crock pot.... I used chicken broth instead of water; I used 1/2 c. wine instead of 3/4 c.; and I added soy sauce without measuring, in addition to worcestershire sauce. I tasted NO wine! I had purchased a pork tenderloin at the store that came with onions, carrots, celery and red potatoes.... all were perfectly done after about an hour on high, and 4 hours on low! And yes, this tastes like a prime cut of beef! We will definitely be making this one again!

Slow Cooker Sweet Potato Casserole

Reviewed: Nov. 25, 2010
I made this today and it was a HUGE hit. I don't eat sweet potatoes so I am giving this review from 6 people who do and they all said it was 5 stars. The only thing I did different was use fresh sweet potatoes instead of canned; other than that, followed it exactly.

Thanksgiving Corn Casserole

Reviewed: Nov. 25, 2010
I made this today and it was a HUGE hit! Followed the recipe exactly... only thing I might change is to add something to spice it up a little just because I like spicy things.
