Colcannon

Reviewed: Mar. 19, 2009
Made it as a side for St. Patrick's Day dinner. The potatoes, cabbage and leeks blended together wonderfully. An easy and very forgiving recipe. Will definitley make again!

Slow Cooked Corned Beef for Sandwiches

Reviewed: Mar. 19, 2009
Delicious corned beef! I halved the recipe but wish I had made more so we would have had some leftover. I put everything in the crock pot, cooked it for 10 hours on low heat and it was great!

Spicy Garlic Lime Chicken

Reviewed: Mar. 19, 2009
One of our favorite chicken recipes! I use thighs instead of breasts and put the spice mixture both on the outside of the chicken and under the skin. Because of this I usually quadruple the spices and find I have just enough spice to generously coat six thighs. I also wait and add the butter at the end so the chicken doesn't get overly brown during cooking.

Shepherd's Pie VI

Reviewed: Mar. 19, 2009
This recipe was A LOT of work for the end result that I got. First of all, four large potatoes is way too much; four medium potatoes would have been more than enough. The potatoes totally overwhelmed the dish. I added peas to the beef mixture as most Shepherd's Pies that I have had included peas. Minus the potato debacle, it was a good recipe, but not good enough to warrant the amount of effort put into making it.

Mrs. Sigg's Snickerdoodles

Reviewed: Mar. 19, 2009
Snickerdoodles are my husband's favorite cookie and this recipe never disappoints! Be careful of the cooking time. I've found that they turn out perfectly if I pull them out of the oven before they seem quite done. I also add cinnamon chips or toffee pieces on occasion for something a little different.

Pistachio Bundt Cake

Reviewed: Mar. 19, 2009
As the submitter suggested, I made this cake for St. Patrick's Day because I was looking for a green dessert. It was quick, easy and quite delicious.

Irresistible Irish Soda Bread

Reviewed: Mar. 19, 2009
So easy to make and my husband loves it! Its moist denseness is reminiscent of cornbread. I divided the batter into two loaf pans because there seemed to be a lot of batter for just one standard size loaf pan. In retrospect, one pan probably would have been fine. I will definitely add this recipe to my arsenal of quick breads.

Amazingly Easy Irish Soda Bread

Reviewed: Mar. 19, 2009
A good bread. Relatively easy to prepare (although I don't love the kneading part). It took much longer to cook than noted in the recipe and got a little too brown on the top for my liking because of the additional cooking time (had I known how much longer it was going to take I would have tried to cover the loaf in foil to see if that would have helped prevent the over-browning). It looked and tasted like a huge drop biscuit.

Beef Taco Skillet

Reviewed: Mar. 19, 2009
One of my favorite casserole dinners. I prefer corn tortillas over flour and add more cheese than the recipe calls for. It is easy to tweak to your preferred taste.

Sweet and Sour Meatballs II

Reviewed: Mar. 25, 2009
I had no idea what to expect with this dish considering the variety of reviews it received, but I was pleasantly suprised. I followed the recipe exactly but substituted regular vinegar for the cider vinegar. I also added some chopped up onion and green bell peppers toward the end of the cooking because to me a sweet and sour dish isn't complete without them. The sauce turned out great and would be wonderful with other foods as well (chicken wings, egg rolls, etc.).

Amazing Pork Tenderloin in the Slow Cooker

Reviewed: Mar. 25, 2009
I was looking for a new recipe for pork tenderloin and this was great. I studded the meat with small garlic cloves as other reviewers suggested and added a little minced garlic to the liquid as well (I really like garlic). I flipped the meat halfway through the cooking time (4 hours on high) since there wasn't enough liquid in the pot to cover the meat. I do think the cooking time could use a bit of tweaking since there seems to be some question on low vs. high heat but I'm not sure what the correct answer is; 4 hours on high was probably more time than it needed, but 4 hours on low may not have been enough. I added some cornstarch at the end to make the au jus into a gravy and served it with potatoes. May be too salty for some, but overall very good.

Easy Cajun Jambalaya

Reviewed: Mar. 26, 2009
Very good. Flavorful with just the right amount of spice. My only complaint was that some of the rice did not fully cook. I don't know if it needed more broth or if I should have stirred it while it was simmering. Maybe both?

Slow Cooker Ham

Reviewed: Apr. 13, 2009
My ham turned out dry, dry, dry. I used a 6lb, bone-in, uncooked ham. It cooked in less than 5 hours on low. Next time I will cook it in the oven. If you plan to try this recipe my advice would be to check your ham often. I was very disappointed.

Monkey Bread I

Reviewed: Apr. 13, 2009
One of my new favorite breakfast treats! A bundt pan works great. Like others mentioned, the bisquits do puff up quite a bit during cooking so be sure to take that into account to avoid possible overflow.

Slow Cooker Pulled Pork

Reviewed: Apr. 13, 2009
I used a pork shoulder at the advice of my butcher and it turned out great. A tenderloin would have been good too and worth spending the extra money if you want a leaner cut of meat. After the meat cooked and was shredded, I let it soak in the sauce on the "warm" setting for an hour or so which really helped the flavors combine. An easy weeknight dinner and a great alternative to burgers for a casual summer get together.

Slow Cooker Adobo Chicken

Reviewed: Apr. 15, 2009
I used only chicken thighs, omitted the onion, added three small bay leaves and a tablespoon of peppercorns. It was very good; it came close to the adobo that my Filipino friends used to make for me, but the texture was slightly off (my husband commented that it was a bit too "mushy" for his liking). Although I like the ease of the slow cooker, next time I will try a stove top recipe. Also, be wary of the cooking time if your slow cooker tends to cook hot as mine does -- I think it was done after only four hours.

Cinnamon Bread I

Reviewed: Apr. 17, 2009
I've made this bread twice now. The first was a disaster because it bubbled over the pan and made quite the mess. The second time I split the batter into two pans and had better results. The bread tastes pretty good, but the texture is a bit rubbery. I'm not sure if I will give it another go or not.

Cream Cheese Squares

Reviewed: Apr. 20, 2009
A really easy recipe. It was VERY sweet so if you don't like things super sweet, you might want to reduce the amount of sugar you add to the cream cheese. I also reduced the amount of margarine, only brushing it over the top rather than using the entire half cup. I think it would be very tasty with a layer of apricot jam over the cream cheese. Other jams/jellies would probably be good as well but with the sweeter jams/jellies I would definitely reduce the sugar in the cream cheese.

Pasta Shells with Portobello Mushrooms and Asparagus in Boursin Sauce

Reviewed: Apr. 24, 2009
Yum! This was delicious! I love how easily adaptable it is. You can use more or less of the mushrooms and aspargus to fit your taste and use whatever flavor of Boursin cheese that strikes you. I also think it would make a great sauce for steak and/or chicken -- eliminate the aspargus and pasta and reduce the chicken stock (to 1/2 cup maybe?) and you have an awesome (and easy) portobello mushroom sauce. Great recipe!

Banana Oat Muffins

Reviewed: Apr. 30, 2009
These muffins were good. I liked the texture from the oats. Next time I may add more sugar because they weren't very sweet.
