Tangy Slow Cooker Pork Roast

Reviewed: May 10, 2014
It was certainly juicy but had absolutely NO flavor. I had to add lots of salt and make a separate sauce to give it some tangy-ness. I won't be making this again.

Caramelized Baked Chicken

Reviewed: Apr. 24, 2013
My husband LOVED this dish!! I followed it to the letter (except I forgot to add the olive oil). I used chicken thighs and two chicken breasts for those that don't eat chicken off the bone. The thighs were perfectly cooked with the temp and time stated. The breasts were slightly dry, although the sauce made up for it, but I would reduce time and temp for boneless breasts. Next time, I will do as other reviewers said which was boil the sauce down to make it thicker or add the cornstarch to thicken. The sauce was rather thin, but still delicious. Pour over buttered, garlic noodles or rice and it is fantastic. And the leftovers???? the glaze just gets stickier and more delicious, if possible. An option would be to chop up some chives or green onion for serving or cut up the chicken into pieces with the sauce as is and serve over a bed of rice. (kind of like the bourbon chicken from the mall, you know, the ones with the samples?)

Layered Chicken and Black Bean Enchilada Casserole

Reviewed: Apr. 24, 2013
This was really good! I had to omit some items because I didn't have them on hand (cilantro, coriander and sour cream). Next time, I will try with the fresh cilantro and the green chilies, since I used a can of rotel as a substitution for that. I also had to make the red enchilada sauce from scratch because I don't keep that in the pantry, but that was simple enough to make and I had all of the stuff to make it. My husband said to put this in the meal rotation!!!!

Zesty Slow Cooker Chicken Barbecue

Reviewed: May 29, 2012
This was really good. I did change a little. I used KC masterpiece sweet and Spicy BBQ sauce and then added some red pepper flakes and cayenne for heat. Next time I think I will use a different BBQ sauce and omit the sugar. I prefer a more savory bbq. I did do as other reviewers suggested and shredded the chicken to absorb more of the sauce. It was really good! Lots of leftovers.

Taco Casserole

Reviewed: Mar. 28, 2012
My husband LOVED this! I omitted the pasta because I had some left over Mexican rice. I did as others had suggested and added minced garlic to the meat and onions as it was browning. Then, I added the taco seasoning and 1/4 cup of water. I used drained Rotel and drained corn as well, heated it through. Taste at this point; you can add seasoning here if you want: salt, red pepper flakes, cayenne.... I added 1/2 c. cheese that other reviewers suggested then went into a casserole dish. I sprinkled some cilantro and chives from my garden, the crushed taco shells and 1 c. shredded cheese. My husband couldn't stop raving about it!

Roast Sticky Chicken-Rotisserie Style

Reviewed: Nov. 22, 2011
Wonderful! I halved the recipe and it was plenty. Instead of a whole chicken you can use chicken pieces. I rubbed the outside of the chicken (legs and thighs are my favorite) with olive oil and then sprinkled in the spice mixture all over. Then I popped them in the oven at 415 degrees for 35 minutes total, turning over at the 15 minute mark. They turned out delicious! I will definitely use this spice mixture again, maybe on pork chops next time!

Slow Cooker Texas Pulled Pork

Reviewed: May 30, 2011
I would have to agree with the previous posters' reviews in that the sauce has no flavor. I did take their advice and season the meat before slow cooking it but when I went to shred the pork, it still didn't have a lot of flavor. I had to put even more salt in the sauce, more bbq sauce and almost a tablespoon of red pepper flakes! After all of my doctoring, it is pretty good. I had some leftovers and they will get eaten. But will I make this recipe again? Nope.

Creamy Chicken Lasagna

Reviewed: Apr. 27, 2011
It was really delicious! Several things that I would change next time: 1) I would double the cheese mixture. In this last batch I used 8 oz of cream cheese AND 8 oz of ricotta and it still wasn't enough. 2) I wouldn't use that much spaghetti sauce. (side note: I made my own using tomato sauce, rotel, basil, cayenne pepper, and garlic salt to taste). 3) I added double the amount of bouillon for more flavor. The cream cheese made it so creamy. This will be on our monthly rotation!

Best Steak Marinade in Existence

Reviewed: Apr. 4, 2011
This was delicious! The only thing that I would add is maybe some salt or garlic salt. I didn't put any hot sauce in it but I did add some fresh minced garlic (instead of the dried). Excellent!

Baked Slow Cooker Chicken

Reviewed: Apr. 4, 2011
It was good, not great. I cooked it on high for about 4.5 hours and it was still really juicy but it lacked in flavor. I did quarter an onion and put in in the cavity but that was the only thing that I added to the recipe. It is a good place to start the recipe but more spices are needed to make this a 5 star recipe.

Salisbury Steak

Reviewed: May 3, 2010
Like most reviewers, I tweaked mine a bit. To the ground meat, I only added the egg, breadcrumbs, the salt and pepper, and about 1/3 of can of cream of mushroom soup. I would use 1 more egg because it started to fall apart in the pan. Then while it was browning, I doubled the gravy using 2 Dry onion soup mix packets, 4 cups water and the remaining mushroom soup. I put the browned patties in a 9x13 dish and poured the gravy over and baked for 30 min. at 375 F. It was delicious! The boyfriend asked to add it to our normal rotation!

Taco Lasagna

Reviewed: Dec. 2, 2009
Awesome! The only thing I omitted was the green onions (since I didn't have any) and only used 8 oz. of sour cream. I mixed the sour cream and salsa and it spread really well. To brown the beef I sauteed it with onions and it really added to the flavor. I also had to add more cheese because my husband really likes cheese! Putting this on the menu rotation!

Garlic Butter

Reviewed: Nov. 11, 2009
This is so versatile!!! You can use it to butter noodles, make garlic bread/toast, dab some on a steak, add to baked potatoes... The possiblities are endless. I have to make a batch on a weekly basis since we use it for EVERYTHING! I would either use more butter to make up for the garlic salt or less garlic salt with the stated amount of butter. I also nixed the paprika as I didn't know exactly how that would make it taste and it still tasted great!

Southern-Style Pork Chops

Reviewed: Nov. 11, 2009
My boyfriend loved it!! I had to modify the recipe a bit since I didn't have cream or milk or yogurt. I used sour cream, watered down but not too much to make it soupy. I also followed the other reviewers advice and didn't add salt. It was still too salty and next time, I will had more milk or cream. The recipe did call for ALOT of wine and I, too, scaled that down. Next time, I will have to try the milk/cream. The sour cream was really good, with a little extra kick to the flavor, but I would like to taste with the milk/cream.
