Chocolate Buttermilk Cake

Reviewed: Sep. 16, 2012
Made recipe as is. I think it's delicious, and it's one of the few things I bake that light's up my husband's eyes. He is a chocolate lover.

Black Bean Vegetable Soup

Reviewed: Oct. 9, 2011
This soup was very hearty and tasty! I wanted to make a larger portion, so I added a large sweet onion, chopped; two more cans of black beans; 1/2 cup of salsa; a little salt; and more cumin and chili powder. After reading some other reviews, I only used 1 can of chicken broth. This soup has some great flavor without being spicy. Thanks for the great recipe!

'Chinese Buffet' Green Beans

Reviewed: Dec. 26, 2010
My husband and I really enjoyed these. I took the advice of another reviewer and blanched the veggies first (I used some sliced green pepper in addition to some green beans since I did not have that many green beans.). I also left out the oyster sauce (don't like). Thanks for a yummy side dish! I will definitely be using this recipe again!

Slow Cooker Spare Ribs

Reviewed: Aug. 1, 2010
OMG! This was fall-off-the-bone delicious! This dish made me look like a fabulous cook. I made a few adjustments thanks to other reviewers. I did not boil the ribs. I used a cup of ketchup instead of the tomato sauce, beef ribs instead of pork ribs. I used a very small onion, and a bit more than a tablespoon of brown sugar. I put everything at once in a slow cooker adding about a 1/4 cup of water to make sure there was enough liquid in the slow cooker. Cooked it on low for 8 hours. Then put beef in a foil-lined baking dish with some of the sauce on it in a preheated oven at 400F for 10 minutes. It came out great! Thanks everyone!

Beef, Bean and Barley Stew

Reviewed: May 31, 2010
Very good, hearty cross between a soup and a stew. I added some more of the listed spices and salt as other reviewers suggested but left out the carraway seeds since I didn't have any on hand. I also added a can of Cannellini beans. The only big differences for me was after bringing the soup/stew to a boil, I had to let it simmer for twice the said time. My husband and I really enjoyed this.

Baby Back Ribs

Reviewed: Apr. 26, 2010
Wow! These were fall-off-the bone delicious! Since I don't have a grill, I followed others suggestions of putting it in the oven for 30 minutes instead of on the grill. I also did not add the plum sauce and cooked the ribs for 5 hours in the slow cooker. These were so easy to make too! Thanks for the GREAT recipe. For those cooking baby back ribs for the first time, be sure to take the membrane off of the back of the slab of ribs. If you make slit through the membrane with a knife, lift some of it up, then pull slowly with a piece of paper towel to avoid slipping, it comes off very easily. I got tip from another rib recipe on this site.

Cabbage Beef Soup

Reviewed: Feb. 21, 2010
Wow! This was absolutely delicious! As per helpful suggestions, I made just a couple of changes. I did not use water. I used 1 can cannellini beans NOT drained, 1 can of pinto beans mostly drained, and 1 can of kidney beans mostly drained. I also used 2 cans of tomato sauce and one can of diced tomatoes instead of 24 oz of tomato sauce. To make it a bit less fatty, I used extra lean (97/3) ground beef and did not use oil. Once again, this was amazing!!!

Chicken and Corn Chili

Reviewed: Jan. 4, 2010
This is absolutely fabulous and easy! This was the very first slow cooker meal that I ever made, and now my husband and I are so excited about finding more recipes. I can believe how the chicken just fell apart. I did use fresh garlic as suggested by others, and also added a little more some cumin and chili powder and a can of chili beans. Thanks, Sarah Jane, for this great recipe!

Chicken Marsala

Reviewed: Jun. 28, 2009
Oh my goodness! This was amazing! I've only been cooking for about a year, but this recipe made me look like a master chef in the eyes of my husband. I did make a few modifications though due to some suggestions of other reviewers. To keep it low fat, I only used about a tablespoon and a half of olive oil and no butter. Before browning the chicken I briefly sauteed the mushrooms with 2 large minced garlic cloves in a 1/2 tablespoon of olive oil. Then I removed the mushrooms and set them aside until the recipe instructed to add them. I used 3/4 cup of Marsala and no sherry. When the chicken was fully cooked, I removed it, leaving the mushroom Marsala sauce still in the skillet. I then used some corn starch in a small amount of chicken broth to thicken the mushroom Marsala sauce. Lisa, thank you so much for such an amazing recipe!!! Not only did my husband love it, but I am still licking my chops!

Picante Chicken

Reviewed: Mar. 5, 2009
This is a great recipe to use when you have the ingredients on hand and you are short on time. Clean the chicken, gently boil it for specified time, and you have a wonderful, good-for-you, tasty dish. I had large drummettes on hand, used four with a little over a cup of salsa, and the chicken came out full of flavor and extremely tender. I served it over brown rice. It was great. Thanks!

Simple Spinach Lasagna

Reviewed: Jul. 16, 2008
I'm new to cooking. It took me a little more time to prep than was said, but it was not difficult to do. My husband of 3 weeks was very excited and impressed that his new wife could make him a tasty lasagna. For those of you that want a little more nutrition, I used whole wheat lasagna and it tasted great. Also, I would recommend defrosting the spinach before putting it in with the onions and garlic to sautee.
