Root Beer BBQ Sauce

Reviewed: Aug. 20, 2009
A good use for spare and flat root beer. It has some zip and spice to it. I didn't like the undertaste of the sauce for some reason, but it will certainly get used up. I used mexican chili powder and hungarian paprika, so perhaps that was part of the issue.

Impossibly Easy Coconut Pie

Reviewed: May 14, 2009
This pie is super easy to make and tasty. I didn't like the custard-like consistency of the middle part of the pie, but that is a personal preference. The crust formed nicely, and the coconut top was crisp and flaky. This is especially good topped with Cool Whip when serving. If you like coconut and custard, this recipe would probably be a winner for you.

Maple Banana Bread

Reviewed: May 13, 2009
Nice recipe to use if you only have 2 bananas. I used vanilla instead of maple extract and it was fine.

Roast Beef with Coffee

Reviewed: Mar. 30, 2009
I was really hoping I would have a use for my leftover breakfast coffee with this recipe. I made the recipe with a high cut of beef roast, and prepared exactly as suggested. The roast turned out dry and flavorless and the juice was really not good enough for gravy.

It's Chili by George!!

Reviewed: Mar. 12, 2009
After reading several reviews (and sorting through the pantry), I made this chili with a few modifications: Instead of the beans used in this recipe (the kidney beans and the pinto beans), I used one 15 oz. can of Joan of Arc Spicy Chili Beans (undrained). Instead of the tomato juice, I used one 28 oz. can of diced tomatoes (undrained), and one 14.5 oz. can of diced tomatoes (undrained). Instead of the 28 oz. can of tomato sauce, I used two 15 oz. cans of tomato sauce. I didn't have a green pepper, so I used one 4 oz. can of La Preferida mild green chiles. I put all of this in a 5 quart slow cooker. It has been cooking on high for 2 hours. I just sampled the chili and it is out of this world! I just love the tang that this chili has, without being overwhelming. Thanks for the recipe and to all reviewers for so many great ideas!

Slow Cooker Turkey Breast

Reviewed: Jan. 27, 2009
I cooked a 6 pound turkey breast this way, with the addition of two tablespoons of butter that I placed in the cavity of the turkey breast. I did not add any water or other liquid. I also sprayed the inside of the slow cooker with Pam for easy cleanup. It turned out absolutely delicious! Thank you for the wonderful recipe!
