Kale Krisps

Reviewed: Apr. 11, 2010
Surprisingly delicious. Even my 11 year old loved it. I sprinkled sea salt, pepper and garlic powder over chopped kale leaves then topped with a mix of shredded jack/colby and mozzarella cheeses. I used a plastic box of precut kale, which filled one baking sheet after I chopped it up. I used probably a cup of cheese sprinkled on top. Absolutely yummy!

Baked Slow Cooker Chicken

Reviewed: Oct. 23, 2011
Could anything be easier? I tried it two ways: first, I used about 2 cups chicken broth and a layer of carrots and celery instead of tinfoil balls. It came out terrific. Second time, I tried it without the broth and used the tinfoil balls. I still supplemented with some aging carrots/celery to form the base. Turned out delicious and easier to not use the chicken broth. I think this is a better way than the oven to cook chicken. Just SO easy!

Oh-So-Good Chicken

Reviewed: Nov. 9, 2011
Did not use mushrooms (because of the kids), used about 1 1/4 cup of salsa and substituted brown rice for the white. Also added about 1 cup of thawed frozen corn. Very easy and very delicious. The next day, my 13-year-old daughter had it for lunch and dinner again!

Best Ever Party Appetizer

Reviewed: Nov. 11, 2009
I did what many others did and just stirred all the ingredients up to make a spread that I put in a bowl surrounded by crackers. I did get many comments about how great it was, but it was a little thick/rich for my tastes. A very interesting combination of flavors, though. Not a typical cheese spread.

Fast Chicken Soup Base

Reviewed: Apr. 10, 2011
Boy, that was good! And easy. I used 3 tablespoons of Better Than Bouillon/Chicken with 3 quarts of water, and might cut back on the BTB next time because my daughter thought this soup was a little salty. Otherwise followed the recipe exactly. The rotisserie chicken (traditional) likely upped the salt level a lot too. But otherise, just a delicious soup that everyone loved.

Salsamole!!

Reviewed: Jun. 27, 2010
Excellent recipe. I used just one jalapeno pepper (seeded and deveined) to keep it mild. Really loved it, but next time, I plan to use lime juice and add cilantro. Someday, when the kids are all grown up, I'll try it with all the fancy peppers!

Cousin David's Slow Cooker Brisket

Reviewed: Sep. 23, 2011
Delicious. Used a homemade dry onion soup mix from this site. Also used just one bottle of chili sauce because I was using a 2 lb cut of brisket.

Glazed Country Ribs

Reviewed: Jul. 10, 2011
Followed almost exactly, except for marinading time. Only got about 4 hours in instead of 8 or overnight. Will aim for the longer time next time. Also would slather on some BBQ sauce during the last 20 minutes of cooking. Excellent recipe though.

Cardamom Granola Bars

Reviewed: Apr. 29, 2012
Great stuff! I used craisins and since I'm allergic to nuts, used some gluten-free chocolate rice puff cereal and coconut flakes. Added a 1/4 cup of Enjoy Life chocolate chips too. Will add them well after mixing in the heated butter/sugar/honey mix so they don't melt! Can't wait to try this basic recipe with cinnamon instead of cardamom, which my 7-year-old didn't care for.

Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Cookies III

Reviewed: Nov. 12, 2011
Outstanding! I added 1/8 tsp of nutmeg and 1/8 tsp of cloves. Would also use just 1 to 1 1/2 cups of semisweet chips. 2 cups was too much. Upped the oven temp to 365 and baked for 12 minutes as per other reviewers.

Jamie's Minestrone

Reviewed: Aug. 18, 2011
Really enjoyed this soup. Used 4 cups chicken broth and skipped the water. Also used combo of tomato sauce and stewed tomatoes. Skipped the zucchini and used kale instead of spinach. Really, really tasty.

Sweet Restaurant Slaw

Reviewed: Jul. 10, 2011
Outstanding recipe. Everyone loved it at our bbq. Used 2 bags of shredded slaw and kept the original measurements for the dressing (made this the day before serving it). I can't imagine if I had doubled the dressing! Yikes! That would have been way too much. I think I could have used 3 bags of cabbage shreds and it still would have melded greatly overnight.

Garden Stuffed Baked Potatoes

Reviewed: Jun. 18, 2011
I halved the recipe and added some garlic powder to the sauteed onions. Otherwise followed to a T. Loved it! Sprinkled some bacon bits on top once plated. Delicious.

Slow Cooker Italian Beef for Sandwiches

Reviewed: May 8, 2011
Wow! This was so delicious. Substituted beef broth for the water and used 2 tablespoons of the Italian Dressing Mix recipe from this site instead of store-bought. Halved the other herbs because I was using a 2.25 pound rump roast. Just outstanding! After 8 hours on low, took the meat out and shredded it and returned it to the cooker for another hour or so. Next time, I'll use a bigger roast!

Slow Cooker Carnitas

Reviewed: Mar. 27, 2011
So very good! Wish I made more than a 2-pound pork loin roast. I did as others suggested and crisped it up for 10 minutes in a 400-degree oven. It dried it out a little bit too much for our tastes, but we all still devoured it. Maybe I was supposed to put it back in the juices after crisping it up! Next time, I think I'll forgo the oven and just serve it from the slow-cooker. A big winner!

Balsamic-Glazed Salmon Fillets

This was OK, good in fact, but I think I was disappointed based on the rave reviews from others.

Beer-Baked Irish Beef

Reviewed: Mar. 13, 2011
oh, my! absolutely delicious. better than pot roast, because there's no chuck roast-type fat running through it and getting in the way of pure meat deliciousness. the stew meat, which i bought already cut in chunks from whole foods, was falling apart tender. only changes i made were adding some yukon gold potatoes and celery, and also, didn't have guinness on hand so i used a bottle of corona, and used dried parsley too. everyone loved it, even my 6-year-old who won't eat pot roast because of the fat that you encounter. i know some folks mentioned the allspice, but i found it wasn't a factor at all. it blended with the meat seamlessly and deliciously.

Spicy Vegetable Beef Soup

Reviewed: Feb. 1, 2011
A little disappointing for me. Didn't care for the combo of herbs. I need to discern which one(s) don't do it for me, because otherwise I liked the base of this soup.
