Slow Cooker Roast Beef

Reviewed: Oct. 25, 2008
I cooked it for 12 hours on low. It fell apart. Didn't need any longer. I bought a pot roast. I used 1/3 cup soy and then filled the 1/3 cup half way with worcheshire sauce. It was very good.

Sweet Restaurant Slaw

Reviewed: Oct. 11, 2008
I used someone else's suggestion and used rice vinegar and low fat mayo. I mixed the full about of dressing, but only added about 1/3 of it. We don't like our slaw drenched. It was very good. Needed some salt and pepper, but that was easy enough to add at the end. I let it sit about 2 hours. Maybe it will be even better tomorrow. Update: Only made 1/2 of the dressing this time. More than enough. Everyone raved about this recipe. I did cut the sugar in half and didn't use poppy seeds. I added some pepper.

Apple Bread

Reviewed: Oct. 5, 2008
This was really good. I never made apple bread before. I used macantosh apples (4 of them). I did take another reviewer's suggestion and used 1/2 cup apple sauce (which I had just finished making in the crock pot), instead of oil. I made 6 mini loaves and one small loaf. My whole family loved it! I will definately make it again.

Peppermint Patties

Reviewed: Sep. 27, 2008
Wow these are really good! They taste better than the York Peppermint Patties. I did use a whole can of sweetened condensed milk. It was about 1 1/4 cups. I just adjusted the sugar. I didn't measure, just kept adding and mixing until it was not sticky. I added 1 TBS of peppermint extract. Others said it wasn't enough peppermint. Mine are perfect! I formed them into patties, let it sit overnight. Don't make the patties too big. Then I dipped half in chocolate and let it set chocolate side up. To speed up the process, I put the tray in the freezer, then dipped again. I used dark chocolate. MMMMMM....

Chili-Lime Chicken Kabobs

Reviewed: Sep. 16, 2008
I really wasn't impressed with this recipe. I used 3 TBS of lime juice. All I could taste was the paparika. I couldn't taste any lime. I would not make it again.

E-Z Marinated Swordfish

Reviewed: Sep. 13, 2008
My husband really liked this recipe. I marinated his swordfish and shrimp in it. He said the swordfish wasn't spicy. I might marinade longer next time. I only had 15 minutes.

Sour Cream Coffee Cake III

Reviewed: Sep. 12, 2008
This was a good coffee cake. I did use low fat sour cream. Everyone at work raved about it. They didn't believe that I made it from scratch. They were trying to figure out my "secret". I thought it was good, but not the best I ever had. I might make it again. I did make one as a bunt cake and one in a 9x13 pan. The bunt took about 20 min longer to cook.

Crisp Lemon Sugar Cookies

Reviewed: Sep. 2, 2008
Everybody loved these. I did add some extra lemon extract. I also cut the recipe in half b/c I was making many different kinds of cookies for a cookout. I used the whole egg (I couldn't figure out how to use half). They were great. Would definately make again. Thanks for a great cookie recipe.

Italian Spaghetti Sauce with Meatballs

Reviewed: Sep. 2, 2008
I only made the meatballs, so this is not for the sauce. They were very good. I did use packaged bread crumbs. I only used about 1/2 cup. They were seasoned. I also omitted the cheese and used fresh parsley since I had it. They were very good. My 4 year old loved them and so did my picky husband. Update: The sauce is ok. I have made better. This is the recipe I still use for my meatballs though.

Baba Ghanoush

Reviewed: Sep. 1, 2008
This was good. Very watery. It was a lot of time and ingredients were expensive. I will buy my baba ghanoush next time. The one in the container is much better. Maybe with garlic or roasted red peppers added it would be better. Needed something...

Stephanie's Freezer Spaghetti Sauce

Reviewed: Sep. 1, 2008
This recipe was really good. I cut the recipe in half b/c that was all the tomatoes that I had. I needed a way to use my tomatoes and ones that a friend gave me. I did cook on low for about 6 hours. I omitted the bell pepper b/c my family doesn't like them. I added extra garlic (b/c we love garlic, I roasted it first and used the whole head) and some red pepper flakes. I used my Braun hand mixer to puree the sauce. I used the whole can of tomato paste. It is a very good sauce. Tastes like a basic sauce, but better than the jarred stuff. I froze in 3 ziplock freezer bags for later. ********Update: I made this again. Just a week later. This time I used the full 16 cups of tomatoes. Well a little over. I bought over 5 lbs of plum tomatoes. I still left out the bell pepper, and added about 3/4 tsp red pepper flakes, 2 bay leaves, and 2 heads roasted garlic (drizzle with olive oil and cook 35 min. in 400 degree oven, squeeze out garlic). I followed the rest of the ingredients exactly. I left it on low in the crockpot for 8 hours. When I came home it smelled like an italian resturant. I removed the bay leaves and pureed the sauce with my Braun hand mixer to make it smooth adn added 1 can of tomato paste. It made about 3 1/2 quarts. I plan on freezing it. My last batch is gone already. It was excellent! I made spagetti and meatballs and eggplant lasagna with the sauce last time.

Best Ever Chocolate Chip Cookies II

Reviewed: Aug. 31, 2008
These stayed soft and chewy. The flavor was ok. Not the best I have made. Good if you want a soft, chewy cookie. I prefer mine a little crip on the outside and chewy in the middle. Also the brown sugar flavor was very stong in this recipe. Wouldn't make again.

Zesty Slow Cooker Chicken Barbecue

Reviewed: Aug. 10, 2008
This was really good. I used Jack Daniel's BBQ sauce. I took other's suggestion and added a med. onion and garlic. Saute onion and garlic. It was a little sweet. Next time I will cut the sugar in half and add a little red pepper. I also cooked for 3 hours on high. Shredded, the chicken and put it back in the crock pot for another hour or so. Might try cooking it on low if it is a work day. I usually don't like chicken in the crockpot, but this was very good. Update: I made it again and cut the sugar. I used about 3 tbs. Much better. I also added 6 slices of cooked bacon (cooked them first, then sauted the garlic and onion in some of the bacon fat) and added about 1/2 tsp red pepper flakes. Everyone loved it. Another update: I tried it today with pork loin (that is what was on sale, I will try pork butt next time). I followed the recipe exactly this time, but added a little garlic and onion powder to the meat before putting it in the crockpot. It was really good. Served it with hush puppies, coleslaw, and cinnamon apples. Yum!

Gingerbread Men

Reviewed: Jul. 29, 2008
This recipe is great! It is very easy to roll out. My 4 year old had fun helping to cut out cookies. I also made some sugar cookies using this recipe. I used vanilla pudding, white sugar instead of brown, and didn't use the ginger and cinnamon. They were great. Update: I used instant pudding and it worked. No difference. I have used chocolate and vanilla pudding and these are the best and easiest rolled cookies.

Half and Halfs

Reviewed: Jul. 23, 2008
I am giving 3 stars for the cookie, but would give 5 stars for the idea. I made them using Chocolate Chocolate Chip Cookie recipe and Best Chocolate Chip Cookie recipe from this site. I halved both recipies. I am not sure why others said it was more work. I just put a spoon full of each on the pan and fit them together. They were easy and yummy. I would definately make this again with the other recipes (the second way I tried it). Look them up!

Best Chocolate Chip Cookies

Reviewed: Jul. 23, 2008
So far this is the best chocolate chip cookie that I have found. I have been on a search for the best. I have tried so many variations. This one is soft and chewy, but a bit crisp on the outside. My mother inlaw said it looked like a bake shop cookie. The only thing I didn't like is I had to flatten it on the baking pan. They didn't flatten at all during baking. I might cut the flour a bit next time. I also added 1/2 tsp cream of tartar like one other person suggested. This just changed the appearance to crackle on top. Update: Ok, I tried it with 1/2 cup less flour. It did come out slightly flatter. Great cookie either way. Cut the flour slightly if you want it a thinner, crisper cookie. With all the flour it is slightly thicker and chewier cookie. Melted butter with full amount of flour produces a nice cookie.

Chocolate Chocolate Chip Cookies I

Reviewed: Jul. 23, 2008
These are very good. They are moist with a bit of crunch. I did have to press them down a little. They didn't flatten at all when baking.
