Roast Potatoes

Reviewed: Sep. 24, 2013
Made these exactly as written and they turned out excellent. Since my wife likes them crispy I broiled them for a few minutes when they were done to crisp them up and they disappeared faster than I would have believed. This one is definitely a keeper!

Slow Cooker Chicken Taco Soup

Reviewed: Sep. 24, 2013
This recipe is, to put it simply, awesome. I've always made it with the homemade taco seasoning referenced by other reviewers so I can't say how it would taste with the packaged stuff from the grocery store. With the homemade stuff, it comes out delicious and has met with rave reviews every time that I've made it. I've made this 3 times now and the last time doubled the seasoning to kick things up a notch which was appreciated by all but two of my children who don't like spicy. I definitely recommend this recipe! Oh, and I put in 1 fewer chicken breasts than called for - as-written we felt that the quantity of chicken once shredded was a little much. If you like a meaty soup then you'll like it as-written; however, we like it better with a little less meat. Excellent recipe!!

Garlic Mashed Potatoes Secret Recipe

Reviewed: Sep. 24, 2013
I made this recipe as-written with the only changes being to reduce the quantity to 8 servings and to use roasted garlic vs. chopped. The roasted garlic really ups the flavor and I highly recommend it. These potatoes were delicious and everyone enjoyed them -- that was until my wife found out how much butter is in them! Flavor-wise, 5-stars but calorie-wise, a little less. I'll definitely be making these again but will experiment adding milk and reducing the amount of butter to see if I can get a lower-calorie version for the family. Overall a great recipe and one that is a keeper.

Bacon Wrapped Hamburgers

Reviewed: Feb. 5, 2013
Overall, my family loved these burgers apart from the quantity of onion (personally, I love onion, so these were great, but the rest of the family wanted just a little less). I had to broil these (grill is under a foot of snow) but they really did turn out great; very juicy and tasty. Now that I've made this per the recipe, next time I think that I'll try BBQ sauce in place of the ketchup and replace some of the onion with garlic since I think that that will suit the family's tastes overall. Still, an excellent recipe - thanks for sharing!

Grilled Yellow Squash

Reviewed: Sep. 16, 2012
This turned out to be excellent, at least to the opinion of those in the family that like squash. I followed the suggestion of another reviewer and brushed the finished squash with a little melted butter. The result was excellent!

Awesome Slow Cooker Pot Roast

Reviewed: Dec. 20, 2011
This roast turned out much better than how I used to cook roasts. The flavor is awesome and the roast super-tender. I agree with other reviewers that the best cut to use for this roast is a tri-tip roast. I have made this recipe with other cuts but, so far, have enjoyed the tri-tip the best. For best flavor, I sear the roast on all sides first before adding to the slow cooker, adding some garlic, rosemary and coating w/flour. The flour thickens the gravy nicely when done for serving over mashed potatoes or rice. The 2nd time I made this I also added about a tablespoon of Worcestershire sauce to the gravy which turned out great. Overall, this one is a keeper and I will make (with the modifications noted) this one over and over.

Squash Soup

Reviewed: Nov. 27, 2011
The family wasn't sure about this recipe but in the end they really liked it. This soup tasted very similar to the broccoli cheese soup that I make and that the family all loves. I made the recipe exactly as written and will definitely be making again. Thanks for a great recipe!

Best Black Beans

Reviewed: Nov. 27, 2011
This simple side dish is surprisingly good. I served it together with Carol's Arroz con Pollo (also on this site) and the entire family loved it -- even my wife, who "hates" beans of all types, said that these were good. I drained the beans and then rinsed in a colander before cooking. I also sauteed the onions and garlic for a few minutes with approx 2Tbs of butter before adding the beans. The end result, while having a few more calories from the butter, turned out very tasty and well-paired with the rest of the meal. Have made twice now and has been very well-received both times.

Chicken Cordon Bleu II

Reviewed: Nov. 27, 2011
This dish turned out wonderful and was well worth the work. As with other reviewers, I strongly recommend doubling the sauce (I did). I also used chicken boullion in place of the wine. The dish turned out wonderful paired with the Mushroom Rice Pilaf (also on this site). Thank you for a tasty and relatively easy chicken dish!

Mushroom Rice Pilaf

Reviewed: Nov. 27, 2011
I was looking for a good side dish and came across this recipe. I made it knowing that I would love it -- wasn't so sure about the rest of the family, though. It turns out that they all loved it and have since requested that I make it again. The blend of flavors makes this dish a perfect side dish to any number of main courses -- I served it with the Chicken Cordon Bleu II also found on this site for a wonderful dinner. This dish is now a part of our regular rotation. Thanks!

Fluffy Pancakes

Reviewed: Nov. 27, 2011
These pancakes were the best! Light and fluffy and the best pancakes that I've had in many years, including those at some specialty restaurants. I made them exactly according to the recipe (doubling the recipe) and the family gobbled them up as fast as they came off the griddle. These are now my favorite pancakes and I'll definitely be making them again!

Caramel Pecan Pie

Reviewed: Nov. 27, 2011
This pie was EXCELLENT! I made it as per the recipe with the exception of substituting 1/2c brown sugar for the white sugar. The pie turned out sublime - not overwhelmingly sweet like so many Pecan pie recipes (it was plenty sweet - don't get me wrong - but not completely overwhelming). I made this pie for Thanksgiving this year and now it is on the "must-have" list for next year. Thanks for a GREAT recipe!

Quick Chicken Divan

Reviewed: Jul. 15, 2011
I really liked this but the kids didn't care for all the broccoli (I added extra). Overall a very yummy dish that I served over rice. I did wish that it was a little bit "saucier" to better go over the rice, so I'll probably tinker with it some next time. Overall great recipe.

Home-Style Scalloped Potatoes

Reviewed: Jun. 1, 2011
One of the best scalloped potato recipes that I've had. I grew up with scalloped potatoes and found these to be a nice treat. I made the recipe as-written, with the one addition of sprinkling some parmesan cheese on top after it came out of the oven as suggested by another reviewer. All-in-all very nice.

Cabbage Rolls II

I enjoyed these but the family not so much. If you like traditional cabbage rolls then you'll like this recipe.

Slow-Cooker Barbecue Ribs

Reviewed: May 16, 2011
The kids loved these as they were a step up from the ones that we used to fix. The especially appreciated the melt-in-your-mouth aspect of the meat.

Absolutely Ultimate Potato Soup

Reviewed: Feb. 27, 2011
This soup received mixed reviews in the family. Several of us, including myself, loved or really liked it; two of the kids thought that the tarragon was too strong, overpowering the other flavors in the soup. Overall a good soup, though the prep time, as others have noted, is WAY under-stated. I'll probably make this again but cut the tarragon by about 1/3 to see how it turns out.

Thanksgiving Leftover Casserole

Reviewed: Feb. 6, 2011
This one is definitely a keeper. Made this after Thanksgiving and it was such a hit with everyone begging for more I made it again the next night and 2 nights after that. The kids can't get enough of it and my wife loves them too. I didn't change anything in the recipe and it came out awesome!

Slow-Cooked Chili

Reviewed: Mar. 8, 2010
Not as good as my regular standby but great when you crave a good chili but forgot to soak the beans. The family all liked it and give it a thumbs up.

Ground Beef Stroganoff

Reviewed: Dec. 24, 2009
This recipe turned out all right. Compared to my sister-in-law's recipe, though, this didn't nearly measure up. It was quick and easy and did taste good; however, I guess that I'm just spoiled. :-) Thanks for sharing, though!
