Simple Slow Cooker Meatloaf

Reviewed: Jul. 30, 2012
What a fabulous idea, but not sure how to keep the drippings to a minimum. I used 2 # of 93% lean hamburger meat. I wil have to see if there is a leaner % and try it next time. I did switch up the seasonings. I used more of a southwestern flare: cumin, garlic, onion, corriander, paprika, and pepper along with a Goya seasoning packet. I didn't add salt as I thought there would be enough salt with the Goya, but it still needed more salt. I also used fresh chopped cilantro, red/orange/yellow bell pepper, onion, and garlic. In place of the ketchup I used mild salsa and some dashes of worchesire sauce and tobasco sauce. If you wanted to spice it up, you could add diced hot peppers of your choice. I couldn't find my bread crumbs, so I used French's fried onion in place of them. It is delicious. Would love to pair it with garlic mashed potatoes.

Pear Crumb Pie

Reviewed: Jan. 9, 2011
This pie was delicious. It was not too sweet like some others stated. I misread the amount of butter for the crumb topping, I took some out, but I think there was still too much so I also added quick cooking oats and it worked. I used a already made pie crust. One recommendation would be to drain the pears after slicing. I brought it to a pie social at church and it was a hit. I will make it again. Good way to use a bulk amount of ripe pears.

Vegetarian Tortilla Soup

Reviewed: Dec. 11, 2010
This was delicious. I did some of my own revisions. I diced one onion, 1/2 each of a red & green bell pepper and sauted that in olive oil with the garlic and seasonings. I like mine mild, so I reduced the cumin to 1 tsp. I also added 1 tsp each of garlic & onion powder, coriander and a 1/2 tsp oregano. I omited the chile peppers and used no pepper. I used vegetarian chicken broth and 2 - 14 oz can fire roasted tomatoes. I added a can of red kidney beans; rinsed & drained. I made my own tortilla strips from the baked tortilla chips from this site (didn't have time to use the chili and lime). Additional garnishes included fresh chopped cilantro, lime wedges and r/f sour cream. Took it to my son's church choir practice and everyone loved it, including my son. Will be making again. Thank you for the recipe, it is a good base.

Baked Tortilla Chips

Reviewed: Dec. 11, 2010
These are fabulous. I had 18 corn tortillas and I cut them into strips. I used a spray olive oil as I had no mister and sprinkled with a little bit of salt. I am going to use them with the Vegetarian Tortilla Soup from this site. Can't wait to try it.

Zucchini Chocolate Cake

Reviewed: Sep. 15, 2009
Very moist and tasty. My co-worker made it into zucchini bread and it was delicious. I made it into muffins and it was so yummy, not too oily. I would like to try it with unsweetened applesauce to lower fat content and use egg white. Otherwise a fabulous recipe.

Potato, Broccoli and Cheese Soup

Reviewed: Mar. 6, 2009
This soup is fantastic. My son loved it. The only difference I did was use vegetable broth.
