Hot and Spicy Green Beans with Tomato

Reviewed: Aug. 19, 2013
Love the recipe as is, cooked per time listed. For me that's saying something. Being from Tennessee,if green beans haven't cooked for at least 2 hours then they are not done. Such a quick and easy way to get your vegetables. And like everyone else I put my spin on it the second time around. I added a can of shoe-peg corn, a chopped onion, some chicken stock, and sliced almonds. Yum!Yum! The third time I made it using vegetable stock(preferred the chicken stock) I had cooked boneless pork ribs(no barbecue sauce)to go with it. When I went to reheat it the next day, I shredded the pork and added it to the pot. Another Yummer! Next time I try it for myself I'm going to use 1 can of green beans and 1 can of black beans or maybe just use 2 cans of the black beans for a Mexican flavor. (I'm fixing it for the family dinner at my sister's this week.) Thanks so much for this recipe Lori!!!!

Old-Fashioned Vanilla Pudding

Reviewed: May 29, 2012
The first time I made this (super easy), I made as it is written with the exception that I made it for 12 servings. I used the pudding in a banana puddin' recipe I was making for a graduation party. The pudding was so good I wanted to eat it all myself and skip the party. A couple days late I made it in the two-serving size. Still delicious!!!!! Whether you buy the mix from the store or make it from scratch, you still will have to stand there and stir to keep it from sticking. So, why not make it from scratch? You will know exactly what's in it. You can use the best ingredients you can afford and you get to determine how much sugar etc that's in the results.

Slow Cooker Chicken Taco Soup

Reviewed: Feb. 6, 2012
Loved it!!! I followed the recipe almost to the letter. I used chicken stock instead of the beer due to niece being a new nursing mother. Next time I will use the beer. Cooked it for 2 1/2 hrs on high because I started late. Turned it to low and shredded the chicken. Cooked for 2 more hours. After letting it cool, put in refrigerator for the next day. The next day heated a serving as the rest was going to niece's house. It tasted too sweet to me. I do not know if it was the corn, tomato sauce or what. Anyway, I added 3 soup spoons of liquid from a jar of Tostitos Restaurant Style Salsa - medium. Once it was warmed, I added the sour cream and ate it with taco chips. It was perfect. YUM YUM!!!

Zesty Slow Cooker Chicken Barbecue

Reviewed: Feb. 27, 2010
Great recipe and sooooo easy!!! Made just 1 change. I never cook chicken with out adding onion. LOVE chicken but cannot stand the smell when it cooks, hence the onion. Did not have the problems some other reviewers had with their dish. Used Jack Daniel's Barbecue sauce. Added a little water to bottle to get all of sauce so gravy was a little thin. Served dish as shown with corn on the cob(frozen) and green beans. Excellent meal, family liked it. Made dish for Thursday night dinner, had leftovers last night(Friday) and looking forward to having barbecue sandwiches for lunch today(Saturday). Love pulled pork, never thought about pulled chicken until now. This recipe is a definite keeper!!!

Colleen's Slow Cooker Jambalaya

Reviewed: Feb. 19, 2010
EASY recipe! Prep time was on the mark. Only 3 minor changes. I used cleaned shrimp from the fish counter at supermarket instead of frozen. Also used hot Italian sausage because could not find the Cajun type. Omitted the cayenne pepper due not knowing if Cajun sausage was hot spicy or just different spices than mild Italian sausage. I thought if it was not spicy enough when time to add shrimp then I would add the cayenne pepper. I like my spicy dishes medium to hot. With the hot sausage it was hot enough for me. My family does not like hot but they loved this recipe. My brother-in-law, who does not eat leftovers, asked me to save the rest for his lunch the next day. I thought it had the right amount of sauce. I served it with French bread to soak up the sauce. Yum! Yum! When I made it again I will add the rice or rice noodles to the cooker instead of making it separately. Definitely will add okra next time. Did not think about it until the dish had been on the cooker for a couple of hours and did not want to go to store to get the okra.

Salmon Spread I

Reviewed: Jan. 27, 2010
Made this for a bridal shower and served it in bite-sized cream puffs. My sister, giver of the shower, and my brother-in-law loved it. They would have eaten the whole thing with crackers the night before the shower. They rated it a 12. I made the puffs the morning of the shower. The guests liked it also. I love salmon but did not like this. I do not know if it was because the salmon was smoked. I love fresh salmon. The recipe was so easy that anyone walking into a kitchen for the first time could make this with ease. Also it's quick to make when company pops in. The only changes I made were using the light cream cheese instead of the regular. And, per my sister, added another ounce of salmon.
