Maple-Curry Chicken

Reviewed: Mar. 9, 2009
Absolutely delicious....I scaled it back to work for one chicken breast.....and omited the sugar....and it was sooo good. I was feeding myself and my four year old son so used medium (biryani) curry paste and we both loved it. I tossed it with a multi colored (veggie) spiral noodle.

Black Bean and Salsa Soup

Reviewed: Mar. 5, 2009
Delicious! I didn't have two cans of black beans so used 1 can of mixed beans and another one of black beans. I used a submersion blender to puree it while it was in the crock pot. I ate it with sour cream and green onions...but added crushed nacho chips to the top of the kids bowls. My fussy 9 year old son gobbled it up and loved it!

Peanut Butter Noodles

Reviewed: Mar. 5, 2009
This is amazing. The best part is that both adults and children love it. I tell the adults it is "Thai" noodles and tell the kids it is "peanut butter noodles". I didn't have chili paste so used a pinch of dried chili pepper seeds. I also used spaghetti and spaghettini noodles....tonight I am making it with multicolored spiral noodles and adding some chicken to it.

Unbelievable Chicken

Reviewed: Feb. 5, 2009
I printed this recipe off based on the ingredients and stars....but didn't look at the prep instructions. Of course when it came time to make dinner I didn't have time to marinate it for 8 hours nor was I going out in the snow to grill the chicken. In essence what I did was marinate partially frozen, boneless skinless chicken thighs in the marinade for about 4 hours. I think removed the chicken and placed it in a pie plate and baked it at 350 degrees for about 25 minutes. The chicken was moist and extremely delicious!! I served it with roasted baby potatoes and steamed broccoli, This will become a regular dish in our house.

Old Fashioned Raisin Pie I

Reviewed: Jan. 9, 2009
I have never had or heard of raisin pie before when a friend of mine commented "don't you just wish you could find raisin pie like mom/grammie used to make"....to which I said..."yuck". After the same fried had a radical surgery and tramatic diagnosis I made this pie for her and took it to her home. She loved it...closed her eyes and said..."it taste's just like my grandmothers". I would consider that a success!!

Kettle Corn

Reviewed: Nov. 22, 2008
I made this using white sugar, and my husband and I gobbled it up so quickly the kids barely had any! I used the 3 kernel test as recommended by another reviewer and popped the corn as I used to as a child.....holding the pot about 1 inch above the burner (on high) swirling the pot constantly. I toss/shake the pot every 15 seconds or so. When the popping slows I take the pot off the burner for a few seconds and swirl...put it back abover the burner for a few seconds to listen for more pops. If there are no more pops within 2 seconds you are finished. I toss for another 30-45 seconds while the pot is off the burner as it cools a bit. It sounds like hard work....but think of it as a great shoulder work out! I think I will add a tiny bit of salt next time ....as kettle corn in these parts is a sweet and slightly salty mix. great recipe...thanks.

Slow Cooker Cranberry Roast

Reviewed: Nov. 20, 2008
This was a really nice change from the traditional savory gravy most roasts make. The end result was sligtly sweet and well liked by everybody. Oh...I did omit the butter as I didn't see the point of adding extra fat to the gravy...and the flavor was really nice without it.

Slow Cooker Chicken Taco Soup

Reviewed: Nov. 20, 2008
I am rating this as I made it....same ingredients but I changed the "preparation" to try to trick my son into eating it. Before adding the chicken I processed the whole thing in a food processor to "hide the beans". We all liked it but my son ended up being ill and couldn't try it....so at this point I don't even know if it passed the fussy kid test.

Slow-Cooker Pepper Steak

Reviewed: Nov. 20, 2008
I made this recipe as written and it was just so-so. The sauce was nothing special and the steak wasn't overly tender (although this isn't likely any fault of the recipe). I am going to remake it at some point using pineapple in the sauce as another reviewer suggested.

Artichoke Chicken

Reviewed: Nov. 7, 2008
I used fat free mayo and found it a little heavy for my taste, but I have to give this a 5 for being one of the moistest chicken dishes I have prepared. It also lends itself well to substituting the artichoke hearts with other veggies like broccoli, mushrooms or spinach etc. I am sure by using half sour cream and half mayo it will solve the problem of the dominant taste of mayo.

Taco Pie

Reviewed: Nov. 7, 2008
I would rate this recipe a 4 for ease of preparation and 3+ for taste, but since my 9 year old fussy eater thought it was amazing I am rating it up to a 4. I kept it simple and didn't add any extra vegetables but in the future to make it a bit healthier I think I will try making it with pizza dough, and add tomatoes, onions, olives and green peppers and hot peppers. I will chop them small and put them underneath the cheese so my 9 year old doesn't freak out :) I made this again using pizza dough instead of the crescent dough. I also use fat free cream cheese and lean ground beef fried without oil. It was even better than when using crescent dough and a LOT less fattening. I use this dish as a portable dinner (I let it cool and take it in the baking dish precut...it holds together surprisingly well) when I have to take my children directly to activities after school. I pack paper plates, plastic forks and knives, juice packs, raw carrots and dip....and off I go. The kids can eat in the van or at the activity site....and we AVOID drive through.

Slow Cooker Beef Stroganoff I

Reviewed: Nov. 7, 2008
This recipe was pretty good. I used low fat cream cheese and stewing beef. The beef turned out to be tough, but I think it was because my slow cooker cooked it to fast. Next time I am going to try it with fat free cream cheese.

Slow Cooker Macaroni and Cheese II

Reviewed: Oct. 24, 2008
I thought this was a very tasty, rich cheesy recipe. The cheese overcooked so separated and the milk curdled so it wasn't so pretty to look at. I think my slowcooker cooks faster than most because almost all recipes on this site overcook if I follow the directions. I wouldn't cook this any longer than 2 hours on low total. I added the noodles raw and shut off the slow cooker and they were cooked perfectly in about 1/2 hour without any heat! I will make this again reducing the time dramatically. Thanks.

Downeast Maine Pumpkin Bread

Reviewed: Oct. 24, 2008
I thought it was very moist and flavorful, but although I used a very low flavor oil and cut back on it I could still taste it. Next time I am going to substitite half of the oil with apple sauce. This recipe also makes great muffins. I got one loaf and 12 muffins out of one batch. I baked the muffins at the same temperature for about 18 minutes.

Curried Mango Chicken

Reviewed: Oct. 13, 2008
Just so everybody knows, you can buy mango chutney in the grocery store. Here in Nova Scotia it is in the foreign food section with other spices and sauces. It's easier than making it from scratch.

Black Bean and Couscous Salad

Reviewed: Oct. 1, 2008
This salad was delicious. I didn't have green onions so used a small onion and diced it very small and I doubled the dressing. Next time I am going to use green onions and increase the cilantro. I also think a drizle of maple syrup would be a nice additional flavor...but I have to try that. This will become a healthy, filling low fat staple in my home. Thanks!

Barbie's Tuna Salad

Reviewed: Sep. 29, 2008
This is a wonderful sandwhich mix. I used a light Miracle Whip but because of the tang I think light mayo will work better....will definately make again and again especially for functions. Thanks!

Baby Greens with a Warm Gorgonzola Dressing

Reviewed: Sep. 26, 2008
As I was reading this recipe I realized I forgot to mention that if you use it as a pasta sauce you need to omit the vinegar....for obvious reasons. I also wouldn't mix the entire batch of sauce with all of the greens but drizzle each serving with a little bit. Fresh sliced pears and/or candied pecans work very well with this salad.
