Baked Slow Cooker Chicken

Reviewed: Oct. 10, 2010
Super easy. I used a bed of large chunks of carrots, celery and onion instead of the foil and stuffed the cavity with a few pieces of each too. No paprika, just salted and peppered the bird inside and out. And I added about 1/2 to 1 cup of liquid (water) in the bottom at the start (my cooker has hot spots). It completely fell apart when I was taking it out of the slow cooker and is tender and moist and delicious! And bonus, I strained the liquid after pulling out the large chunks of veggies and bones and have some delicious ultra-concentrated chicken broth!

Breakfast Cookies

Reviewed: Jul. 31, 2013
I made these and took them into work. I'm really glad I doubled the recipe as they were *very* popular! People kept stopping by to try the bacon cookies and then came back for seconds. :) You'd think that the bacon would overwhelm everything, yet you can still taste all the different flavors (raisins, corn flakes) and it's not overwhelming. Well balanced and yummy!

Spicy Sweet Potato and Coconut Soup

Reviewed: Nov. 14, 2009
This was *fantastic*!! I will definitely be making this again. Next time I'll try adding some extra firm tofu. I peeled and chopped the potatoes before roasting to get some nice color and roasted flavor. I tossed them in a very small amount of vegetable oil to prevent sticking/burning. I also grated the ginger as I didn't want to bite into a chunk of ginger. I didn't need the whole teaspoon of salt, I only added about 1/2 teaspoon and it was plenty. And like the other reviewers, I don't think it needs the sesame oil. But the freshness of the cilantro was a nice finish.

Sausage Barley Soup

Reviewed: Nov. 21, 2009
This is a wonderfully hearty stew-like soup. Like several of the reviewers, I doubled the carrot, and increased the barley to 1/3 cup. Because my sausage was highly seasoned, I chose to only add salt and pepper to the soup rather than more Italian seasoning. I've also made this using fresh kale and it was fantastic!

Spicy Bloody Mary Mix

Reviewed: Apr. 8, 2012
Excellent spice. Exactly what I was hoping for. I did use low-sodium vegetable juice instead of just tomato. And I omitted the beef consomme (vegetarian version).

Ratatouille Bake

Reviewed: Aug. 22, 2010
This is excellent! I made this the first time because I had an obscene amount of eggplant and zucchini from my CSA box. I've since made it several more times. This is an perfect recipe for the end of summer vegetable bounty. I added extra zucchini, garlic and eggplant; mixed in a summer squash with the zucchini; used 3 fresh tomatoes instead of canned; used 8 oz of shredded cheese (about 1 cup); and used fresh ravioli (never frozen). Because the ravioli was fresh, I didn't cook it before putting it in the casserole dish. The liquid from the sauce cooked it just fine. I had some vegetarian friends over for dinner the first time I made this, one of whom hates eggplant, and they both loved it. :)

Turkey Veggie Meatloaf Cups

Reviewed: Aug. 28, 2011
Will definitely be making this again. Grated the zucchini and onion since I don't have a food processor. Also omitted the bell pepper. Next time I will add a touch of seasoned salt and maybe some garlic. But still delicious as is!

Buttermilk Pound Cake II

Reviewed: May 28, 2012
Excellent and moist. Followed the suggestions of several reviewers and used 2 teaspoons of vanilla and the zest and juice of one lemon instead of the lemon extract. The lemon really brightened the flavor. Almost overflowed my bundt pan (a standard sized pan) it rose so much during baking. But ended up light in texture. Definitely keeping this recipe. Served it with strawberries macerated with sugar, a bit of lemon juice, and mint. Delicious!

Butternut Squash Soup II

Reviewed: Dec. 6, 2010
I *love* this soup. I do make a couple of changes: *I use vegetable broth so it's vegetarian and olive oil in place of the butter. *I use one sweet potato and one white potato. *I also add 2 Tablespoons of Old Bay seasoning to give it a kick (use less for less kick). *I also blend it with my stick blender so it retains some texture. DELICIOUS!! Especially with some whole grain bread. :)

Cucumber Salad I

Reviewed: Jul. 21, 2010
Easy and refreshing. I used sweet onion and doubled the sugar. I also used regular kosher salt rather than the seasoning salt.

Mushroom Lentil Barley Stew

Reviewed: Oct. 29, 2010
Very hearty and filling. :) Good flavor. I used 1/2 the amount of black pepper, and might even cut it down a bit more. The summer savory I used ended up leaving bits of woody stems behind. I also used a fresh onion and couldn't find the dried shitake, so I used all fresh mushrooms (a combination of white button and portabellas). Definitely a keeper.

Peanut Butter Breakfast Bread Pudding

Reviewed: Apr. 8, 2012
Used nutty bread (flax and sunflower seed) and peanut butter with flax seeds too. Deliciously nutty. Almost too sweet, will try cutting back a bit on the sugar.

Blueberry Corn Muffins

These turned out delicious! I used frozen blueberries that I had frozen last fall. They were moist and crumbly all at the same time.

Potato and Bean Enchiladas

Reviewed: Aug. 22, 2010
Pretty good, but could use a bit more of a kick. Made it as a casserole (layered tortillas and potato/bean filling). I also added 2 aruba peppers to the tomatillo sauce, and blended it using my stick blender (best appliance ever!). Could use extra cheese. Also might try adding some jalapeno to the sauce to make it spicier.

Refreshing Watermelon Salad

Reviewed: Aug. 22, 2010
Good! I really did like the flavors. I used mint rather than cilantro and I'm really glad I did, although definitely watch how much mint as it can overwhelm the salad. I also used a sweet onion.

Slow Cooker Beef Barley Soup

Reviewed: Oct. 29, 2010
I halved the recipe for use in my small slow cooker. This turned out as more of a stew than a soup, but I'm OK with that. I couldn't find beef broth without MSG, so I used beef stock instead. I tossed the beef with salt, pepper, and flour before browning, and used a bit of the beef stock to deglaze the skillet instead of water. I also used a regular onion rather than green onions. The beef was very tender and the barley and the carrots didn't get mushy (I don't like mushy carrots) despite the long cooking time. I'll make this again for sure.

No Ordinary Meatloaf

Reviewed: Apr. 21, 2010
I've made this meatloaf twice now. The first time I followed the recipe and only omitted the green bell pepper. Baked it in a loaf pan. It was dense and delicious and made fabulous sandwiches. My one complaint: it was a bit greasy...kind of cooked in it's own fat as it rendered out into the loaf pan. The second time I made a few modifications. *Added: 1 tsp. garlic powder 1 tsp. Italian herb no-salt blend *Substituted: 1 lb. broken up ground beef pepper steaks for the ground beef and bell pepper *Cooking: I baked it in a loaf shape on a baking sheet lined with foil. It wasn't as dense, but it was plenty moist and wasn't as greasy. It also had a nice crust on it all the way around. I'll be baking it on a baking sheet from now on. Overall: delicious meatloaf. :)
