Slow Cooker Creole Black Beans and Sausage

Reviewed: Jan. 20, 2011
One of my family's favorite recipes - I've been making it for years, I think I originally got it from Southern Cooking. The only thing I do differently is cut the sausage into smaller pieces, leave out the bouillion, reduce water by 1/2 and increase cayenne to 1 teaspoon. I make this at least once a month and it makes your mouth water all day while it's cooking.

Nacho Chicken

Reviewed: Sep. 11, 2010
Made this tonight and we all loved the flavor; however we thought the consistency was a bit 'gloppy'. Next time I will definitely just break up the chips, rather than crushing them, for more texture. Used minced garlic instead of garlic salt and 1/2 tspn. cayenne pepper instead of black. Great flavor!

Florentine Chicken Ring

Reviewed: Nov. 13, 2010
Very Good! I've made the similar Pampered Chef recipe before but prefer this as it uses spinach instead of broccoli, and no can of soup! I agree with the other reviewer that says this does NOT need the added salt, I will leave that out next time.

Lemon Pound Cake I

Reviewed: Mar. 14, 2010
This is absolutely perfect if cooked correctly. At 45 minutes it was still liquid in the center. Cooked another 15-20 minutes it is perfect. I have made this many times, we like it with a fresh blueberry sauce on top.

World's Best Lasagna

Reviewed: Jan. 23, 2010
This was excellent and a defenite keeper to suite my tastes. It is NOT at all difficult... I made the following changes: doubled the ricotta (with an extra egg), fresh onions and herbs instead of dry, More of the cheeses (about 8 oz parm and 1 lb mozz.), 1 1/2 lbs. hot Italian sausage and no ground beef. I had the deli thinly slice the mozzarella. Also, no one mentions this but a beginner cook might not know, you must draiin the meat after browning it - the recipe doesn't mention this.

Peanut Blossoms II

Reviewed: Dec. 10, 2009
Absolutely perfect. These are a great recipe to make with kids! I used butter instead of Crisco (eww). Made 2 batches - made the balls a little too big the first time. They should be be just a little bigger than an inch in diameter. Took 11 minutes in my oven.

Cathy's Banana Bread

Reviewed: Dec. 9, 2011
I've been looking for a great banana bread recipe and have tried many - some were too dry, some too moist in the middle. This was PERFECT! I had 4 ripe bananas so I doubled the recipe and made two loaves. Added about 1 1/2 cups chocolate chips and it was delicious, this will be me 'keeper' recipe :)

Best Brownies

Reviewed: Feb. 7, 2011
This is our family's regular brownie recipe - only I increase the flour to 3/4 cup to suit our tastes. Have been making these for years - I think the recipe orginally came from Hershey's. They are not a dark, fudgy brownie, but this is the way we like them and I will only eat them frosted!

Crusty French Rolls

Reviewed: Sep. 9, 2009
These were ok, but not the great roll I was looking for. Only took 15 minutes in my oven, so watch them carefully.

Bread Machine Bagels

Reviewed: Aug. 6, 2009
Made these today, they came out pretty well.. I watched the 'how to form bagels' video n youtube and the shape was great. Next time I will boil them longer, I don't think the outside was 'done' enough. I also had to bake them longer than directed. Made an 'everything' topping that was great - will try cinnamon & raisen next. UPDATE: I have made these many, many times now. I add 1 TB more of the water called for. Also, I boil for 2 minutes on each side, and bake for 21 minutes. I also make 10 and they are still as big as the ones from the grocery store, any bigger and they're too much for one person. They come out perfectly and are the best bagels I've ever had.

Best Toffee Ever - Super Easy

Reviewed: Dec. 9, 2011
This is perfect and so easy - I followed directions exactly and it was perfectly crisp, 285 was the right temp for me to make it brittle - but I did check it with the cold water test. So easy and addictive!

Soft Garlic Breadsticks

Reviewed: Feb. 15, 2011
These are very good - we do them just a little differentl since we like to dip our breadsticks - we leave out the garlic. parmesan & basil. Mix each person a small dish of olive oil, minced fresh garlic, Italian seasoning & kosher salt and dip them - restaurant style.

Tuna Noodle Casserole

Reviewed: Nov. 18, 2010
This was very good and I don't usually like tuna casseroles. I skipped the step of cooking the soup, milk and cheese as I didn't see why it was necessary (I just added them to the other ingredients) - turned out great anyway and saved time, since it all melts together in the oven. Added a little Old Bay seasoning and topped with a mixtures of fresh bread crumbs & parmesan cheese. Yummy!

Steakhouse Black Bread

Reviewed: Dec. 10, 2009
I guess this just wasn't what I was looking for. Wasn't a REALLY dark bread. I made these as rolls and they were very dense. My daughter loved them though and ate the leftovers over the next few days.

Daria's Slow Cooker Beef Stroganoff

Reviewed: Jun. 12, 2012
Very good - I didn't think I'd like it as I usually bypass cream-of-soup based recipes, but the whole family liked this. I used fresh mushrooms and added them closer to the end. Also used beef broth in stead of boullion & water. The meat came out perfectly for me. And how can you go wrong with 16 oz of sour cream :)

Hot Fudge Cake

Reviewed: Feb. 21, 2011
this is a good quick recipe that was easy enough that my kids made it for me for my birthday. It tastes a little like a hot brownie that was only partially cooked - but that was a good thing for me - and I agree with the others that say it MUST be eating with vanilla ice cream.

Reviewed: Jun. 7, 2010

Perfect Sesame Chicken

Reviewed: May 30, 2010
This was FABULOUS! I doubled the chicken & batter, and used 1/2 the sugar, and it was perfect. I couldn't find chili paste so I used Chili Sesame Oil and it had such a great flavor. This will be a new family favorite!

This is one of my favorite breakfast recipes - I got it out of a magazine years back and have been making it ever since. Great for overnight guests!

Texas Sheet Cake V

Reviewed: Sep. 7, 2009
This was PERFECT! I added an extra tablespoon of cocoa to the batter, and had to add a little more milk to the frosting (it was too thick to spread). Everyone loved it.
