Easy Slow Cooker Refried Beans

Reviewed: Feb. 12, 2012
As another reviewer said, "No more canned refried beans!" This recipe is easy, economical, and tasty. I made it as is, except for the following: I used 3 tsp salt, as most suggested, and used 1/3 canned chopped green chiles. One big thing to note: SAVE the broth when you drain the cooked beans! I thought it looked like too much "water" was in the cooked beans, so I drained them all, then mashed them...adding some butter, cheese, and milk. However, they were still too dry. So I used about 3/4 cup of chicken broth and they turned out perfect. WHEW!!

Slow Cooker Spicy Black-Eyed Peas

Reviewed: Jan. 3, 2012
After years of making black-eyed peas for New Years Day, this is the absolute best recipe!! I doubled everything for my large oval slow cooker, using 9 cups of water (including 1.5 cups with the 2 dissolved bouillon cubes.) No bacon, and just my ham bones leftover, with some added chunks of ham. I also used about 1/2 small can of jalapenos, as I had none fresh. It DOES thicken up when it cools, too. So yummy that I've now been appointed the official "bean cook" in the house. Big honor, here.

Apple Butter I

Reviewed: Nov. 20, 2011
I used Heidi's suggestions. 16 medium apples, half Golden Delicious and half Gala. After 1 hour on high, I switched it to low for 14 hours, stirring about every 3. (So long because I went to bed. lol). A few seconds on blend in my blender, and poured it into 5, 14 oz. containers. Perfect, and not too sweet with that many apples and Heidi's measures of sugar and spices.

A Tour of Chicago

Reviewed: Mar. 13, 2011
I was raised in Midwest/Chicago area. Now living overseas, these evoke many of my favorite childhood meals. Sadly, some of the ingredients, like the corned beef, are just not found here in the Caribbean, but I can make many of the others. Thanks for this new feature.

Slow Cooker Ham

Reviewed: Dec. 23, 2010
My ham was a huge, pre-cooked one, so I cut it in half and could only fit half in my big oval crockpot. I lay the cut side down on the brown sugar, drizzled about 1/4 C pineapple juice over it, spread a little more sugar over the top, then studded it with cloves. Even though I forgot to turn it a few times while cooking, and left it longer than planned (it was in 7 h ours) it didn't dry out, but was very moist and juicy. I sliced it and put the pieces into containers, spooning the juices from the bottom of the pot in with them. Now they should soak up even more of the sugar/pineapple/clove flavor. This was so super-simple and easy!!

Crustless Cranberry Pie

Reviewed: Dec. 7, 2010
This was the tastiest, super-simple dessert ever. I wouldn't change a thing, as there is a wonderful sweet-tart contrast as well as a crunch with the nuts. Baked perfectly in the time given, with a beautiful golden crust. I'm being begged to make another immediately at home, so I guess I'll make more to take to friends. Coffee + this = heaven

Perfect Pie Crust I

Reviewed: Dec. 4, 2010
Scary as it was, I was forced to make a pie crust this year, as none of the pre-made ones were available here. I've had terrible results before, but this one was tasty! It was OK to make, but I had to keep adding liquid as it was quite dry and wouldn't stick together. The suggested part apple juice/part water was a great idea. WHEW! Finally a crust I now won't "sweat" about making!

Cranberry Streusel Pie

Reviewed: Dec. 4, 2010
This looks beautiful on any table. The streusel topping is perfect and helps to balance the tartness of the filling. In fact, I may even add a bit more sugar next time (I used 1.5 cups).

Sweet Potato Casserole II

Reviewed: Nov. 26, 2009
Wonderful flavor. My sweet potatoes mashed up fairly dry, so I added some evaporated milk to make them creamier, before adding the other ingredients. In the past, I've made candied sweet potatoes, but this recipe is easier and just as flavorful. And guests loved the slight orange flavor, so I guess it's just personal preference. Try it out before eliminating the juice.
