Slow Cooker Coconut Curry Chicken

Reviewed: Nov. 30, 2013
Great recipe for Chicken Curry lovers! I added one can of pineapple chunks and a trio of colored peppers, red, orange, yellow to kick up the visual appeal. I also had a can of thick coconut cream (Trader Joes)on hand so I threw in two large spoonfuls of that for extra richness but the recipe is great as is. I used skin on browned chicken thighs as that is what I had on hand and the meat just fell off the bone and was very tender. If you like a colorful dish use your food processor and mince some carrot up fine then add the last twenty minutes of cooking time. This is good served over jasmine rice.

Slow-Cooker Pepper Steak

Reviewed: Nov. 30, 2013
Because this recipe has limited spices and other ingredients the piece of steak you choose must be a nice piece of sirloin since the meat is the STAR of this recipe. I always prefer freshly roasted garlic in olive oil and I splashed some liquid smoke into the crock pot. Served over jasmine rice with a nice dry wine a salad and some crusty bread and you have a great easy meal. If you invest in a good sirloin this cooking method will produce a very tender beef dish. I will make this again!

Sweet Corn Bread

Reviewed: Nov. 30, 2013
YUMMO! Excellent consistency and very moist. I would agree with many reviewers though that this is not especially a super sweet corn bread but so worth the five stars anyway. It appears from so many reviews if you want to up the sweetness - just add either honey (love that idea) or more sugar. This IS excellent as is - but what a great base if you do want to add in traditional ingredients to taste. I did add 1 cup of sharp cheddar cheese and a few diced fresh jalapenos but this is fine with or without personal touches. LOVED THIS!!! I served it with homemade chili on a chilly night! Definitely an awesome recipe!

Amazing Slow Cooker Chocolate Cake

Reviewed: Feb. 17, 2013
Ohhhh boy was this moist! Excellent texture- I did not have vegetable oil- having read Canola oil was healthier, I just bought that and I was a little concerned a few of the reviews indicated - not to use Canola oil. I was still determined to make this today so I went ahead and used the Canola oil and it was just fine!!! It was fun making a cake in the Crock Pot since I had never done that before and the house smelled amazing!I like the idea you can throw it together and leave the house to do errands while a dessert is slow cooking. I had some left over chocolate ganache we drizzled over the top and it was delicious. Any favorite topping would work as well as frosting. Because of the oval shape from the crock pot this would make a great base as a giant easter egg all decorated! And Easter is right around the corner! Loved this! I want to try a yellow cake the same way! Gotta eat this warm!!! Kind of the whole point...

Moist Caramel Apple Cake

Reviewed: Feb. 7, 2010
After reading all the reviews I was really looking forward to making this cake. Our family found this very average. I do like the idea of the apples in the cake but it was a big disappointment in flavor. Not only will I not make this again, I am not tempted to even have another piece! Much better desserts out there to put my calories toward!

Spicy Lime-Cilantro Marinated Flank Steak

Reviewed: Feb. 7, 2010
LOVE THIS! Can't get enough of it! It reminds our family of one of our favorite vinaigrettes in a Mexican restaurant we dined at frequently in Los Angeles. Excellent on the steak and just as good as a salad dressing especially for a steak salad! We have been looking for a recipe like this! A definite keeper and will be a favorite summer marinade.

Creamy Potato Leek Soup II

Reviewed: Feb. 7, 2010
This was good but a little rich because of the heavy cream and was not bursting with flavor. The next time I made this I used whole milk and it was very tasty for a healthier version. I did prefer being very liberal with the leeks too. Half and Half works well too.

Taco Pie

Reviewed: Feb. 7, 2010
Excellent for a week day dinner for a bunch of hungry teenagers and easy as 1 2 3 to whip up. I added corn and jalapenos to the mix then served it with fresh salad. The crust was delicious. I am going to try it as a quiche instead of traditional pie crust. The leftovers heated up beautifully too.

Spinach and Leek White Bean Soup

Reviewed: Feb. 7, 2010
Wonderfully healthy! Which more than compensates for it's blandness and you just feel so good eating this! I added more leeks and have made this with barley as well. I really enjoyed this soup. It's colorful too. I'll make this again for sure.

Cream Cheese Snowball Cookies

Reviewed: Dec. 31, 2009
Moist and yummy. A wonderful alternative to the original snowball. After reading the reviews I did refrigerate the dough for 15 minutes and that helps keep the snowball together. I did opt to add the nuts to the dough instead of rolling the cookie in nuts and I doubled the recipe. While my son Chef Junior (also on this site) is out making real snowballs here in snowy NH I am back to the kitchen to make the Peanut Butter Blossoms also on this site as part of a large cookie assortment tray I will bring to my New Years Eve gathering tonight. Happy New Years everyone!!!

Reviewed: Nov. 26, 2009
I didn't make this but I just ate this.... My neighbor just delivered this to us this morning for Thanksgiving and it was more popular than the traditional pies! When she told me she got the recipe on allrecipes I was very happy to learn that! As you can see I wasted no time in finding it and saving it to my recipe box! Not only does it taste delicious it makes a pretty addition to any dessert table around the holidays! I can't wait to make this and share this with my family and friends! Happy Thanksgiving everyone!

Coconut Curry Pumpkin Soup

Reviewed: Oct. 31, 2009
Nice base recipe. It was a bit bland and needed to be doctored up. I added more ginger, two basil leaves, a tsp of Peruvian hot pepper sauce and garlic. As a personal preference I like to taste the crunch of the onion and I like how it looks in the soup. And I saved the step of pureeing the mixture and then don't have a blender to clean. A sprinkle of sea salt on the top just prior to serving enhances the flavor. We had this on Halloween and it was appropriately enjoyable for the occasion!

Maple-Balsamic Vinaigrette

Reviewed: Oct. 31, 2009
This Maple Vinaigrette is exactly what I was looking for. A couple of suggestions I would make is to cut the vinaigrette amount down. Plan on at least 1/2 a cup then begin adding to taste. And, DO use REAL Maple Syrup. And I prefer a thick honey mustard (the ones in a jar) over a thinner mustard but that is just my preference. We added Pears, Blue Cheese, Walnuts, and fresh mixed greens. This dressing is the star of a great fall winter salad! This would be good with Apples, goat cheese, pine nuts etc... Great with any fall fruits.

French Onion Soup V

Reviewed: Oct. 22, 2009
Excellent base recipe. A good quality white wine or vermouth is essential. The onions take a bit longer to saute than suggested so just feel that out. I added a splash of worcestershire and swiss cheese instead of cheddar. I do like to toast the french bread prior to adding it to the soup, it seems to hold a nice consistency. This is YUMMY! And soooo simple to pull together! Hubby loved it and so didn't I.

Sauteed Apples

Reviewed: Oct. 13, 2009
Fabulous fall dessert here in chilly New Hampshire. When my teenage son came home after a loooong soccer game and reported there were SNOW flurries during his game I knew he would appreciate a piping hot serving of these Sauteed Apples for dessert. Chef Junior and I spiced it up a bit with walnuts, coconut, and vanilla thrown into the mixture. I also added a bit more brown sugar to taste. Yum! Would have loved to add either vanilla ice cream or top this off with homemade whip cream. A reason to make this again! And for the record no snow accumulated YET this early in New England! But flurries ARE in the forecast for this evening. On the lookout for more hot desserts using fall fruits!

Smokin' Scovilles Turkey Chili

Reviewed: Oct. 7, 2009
Well this recipe is smokin' and no pun intended. I was serving this for company so my hubby suggested I lay off the habanero and substitute a jalapeno just incase the rest of the world isn't as brave as our spicy family... that's the only change I made and spice was NOT lacking in the least. This is a very good chili as is with the Turkey but I am sure one could use beef if that is your taste preference. Great Autumn meal here in New England!

Grilled Chicken Thighs Tandoori

Reviewed: Oct. 6, 2009
Love this recipe! What a wonderful combination of spices and the yogurt is a healthy and moist way to hold the complexity of these flavors together. Typically I marinade my meat in a container or long covered pan but putting the chicken in the plastic bag and sealing the air out was an excellent method. I did barbecue the chicken enough to sear it but I wasn't eating until several hours later so I then finished it off in the oven slow cooking it at 250 degrees. It was delicious. I am tempted to make some of the sauce to put on top the last few minutes of the cooking process. This is excellent without but I love the sauce and the spices! I had a blast making this Indian dish. It's so much fun cooking foods from other cultures. I served this for company and everyone loved it. It will be back on our dinner table again for sure! Thanks Diana F for sharing a delicious Indian dish with all of us!

Original Nestle® Toll House® Chocolate Chip Cookies

Reviewed: Oct. 4, 2009
Hey what can we say about this long standing American classic other than P E R F E C T... I suppose I could venture off on to another version like soft baked or just for the heck of it try one of the thousands of other Chocolate Chip Cookie recipes out there but this single recipe has kept me quite satisfied for decades I must admit. I'll let you know if I come across anything better...
