Egg in a Boat

Reviewed: Aug. 28, 2011
5 stars for nostalgia! Been eating these occasionally for 50 years. We call them Popeye eggs, that is what my mom called them. in our version, both sides are buttered well and the egg is cracked into the hole, lifting up the bread to let it go underneath the bread. Both sides get cooked to medium; the cut out piece is cooked too.

Swiss Chicken Bake

Reviewed: Nov. 2, 2010
Hubby loved this- I didn't have Swiss so I used Provolone, which began to get stringy as it cooled on the plate (almost done eating at that point though). Still tasted good. Next time I'll use Swiss. Also, used lower sodium soup and lite sour cream. Easy to fix, served with rice and vegetables. A crusty bread would have been good alongside.

Sauerbraten IV

Reviewed: Oct. 10, 2010
Marinated 3 days using ziptop bag. Used 1 large onion. Used the crockpot for the beef-cooking part, made the gravy in a skillet and added back to the crockpot. Definitely include the gingersnaps. I used 12 smallish ones smashed to make 2/3 cup. It is still tart even for sauerbraten with the addition of 2 more Tbsp sugar which made it about right for us and brought it to a 4+. If I would have cooked it 4-5 hours on low that would have been enough. Served with spaetzle, applesauce, and sweet and sour red cabbage. Used the crockpot for the beef-cooking part.

Peanut Butter and Banana French Toast

Reviewed: Jun. 6, 2010
Not enough egg to cover the bread as written. Much better with egg mixed with a splash of milk (and the vanilla) and BOTH sides of each slice cooked, then adding the peanut butter and the banana after cooking; then assemble. Also, we only needed 1/2 small banana for each set. No need to add more butter after cooking. With these changes, 3-1/2 stars.

Three Packet Slow Cooker Roast

Reviewed: May 13, 2010
4 stars for ease of preparation. I have been making versions of this roast for years. It can be made with 1 can beef broth instead of the gravy mix and water; water & gravy- or broth-, and Italian dressing mix; or 2 pkg Italian dressing mix, beef broth -or water & gravy mix-; any combination works. The sodium content will vary with what you end up using. It falls apart so you can easily shred for sandwiches. Also I've made with top or bottom round for less fat. I usually fix mashed potatoes with it and don't salt them. Leftover beef and juices are good for beginnings of soup next day- refrigerate and then skim off the fat that has hardened.

Herb Rubbed Sirloin Tip Roast

Reviewed: Mar. 30, 2010
Very good, didn't have kosher salt so followed the recommendation for 1 tsp regular salt. Made in crockpot, would recommend 5-6 hours on low. Check temperature for desired doneness. Bonus was that sirloin tip roast was on sale!

Braised Balsamic Chicken

Reviewed: Jan. 26, 2010
Too much balsamic vinegar. Glad I tasted at 1/4 cup. Like other reviewers, needed to add some brown sugar to make it edible. Won't make again, although possibly decreasing the vinegar to a splash or two may improve. The seasonings otherwise were okay.

Chicken a la Fire Station

Reviewed: Dec. 1, 2009
This was good, not spectacular. Hubby thought it was very good. I did use low fat soup and lite sour cream, and only 3 chicken breasts (so only 3 Tbsp butter and not the whole pkg of dressing mix.) Served with rice, we like lots of sauce but of course still have some left over.

Smothered Bacon Chicken

Reviewed: Sep. 25, 2009
Used light sour cream, reduced fat soup and thick bacon which was on hand. Husband loved this recipe. Microwaved the bacon slices one minute (1 slice for each chicken piece) before cooking, not quite enough time as I needed to zap it a bit at the end also. With regular bacon I think that would work okay though and that's probably what I will do again. Great flavor.

Slow Cooker Chicken Tetrazzini

Reviewed: May 28, 2009
3 stars for ease of preparation, good for weeknight. Salty for us. Used 3 boneless skinless chicken breasts as that is what I had, and it was enough for the 3 of us. (We like sauce on our spaghetti; if I'd had 6 chicken pieces there would have been more "juice" to the sauce I'm sure.)Used reduced fat soup and cream cheese. I shredded the chicken before serving. We did add parmesan cheese on the top when plated. Served with vegetables. This may work for a longer time on low, rather than the 3 hours on high, for those who aren't home in the afternoon to start this for dinner. I'll post if I try it that way.

Strawberry Cream Freeze: Serve it Your Way!

Reviewed: May 25, 2009
Great light dessert for Memorial Day BBQ. Due to the diabetics in the family, made this with reduced fat cream cheese, sugar free pudding mix, 2% milk, sugar free Cool Whip, reduced fat vanilla wafers, and sugar free strawberry ice cream topping-which I didn't even know existed- and everyone thought this was wonderful. I can't imagine how even much better the full version as listed would be. I used the muffin tins for mini-pies. Creamy, not too sweet, not overtly cheesecake-y, it was a hit!

French Spring Soup

Reviewed: Apr. 29, 2009
Took me significantly longer to chop the vegetables. I did not add the garlic that other reviewers suggested but did use half chicken broth. Needs something. I tried adding cheese in the bowls but that's not it. The next day slightly improved as others have noted. Maybe adding slightly less water and a can of cream of asparagus soup would help?

Easy Roasted Pork

Reviewed: Apr. 7, 2009
Made in crockpot as this was a busy day. (On high, set for 6 hours and then it automatically goes to low). I am a big fan of the oven bags though, this would be great that way I am sure. House smelled so good when I came in! The cinnamon applesauce I used was sweetened with Splenda, and I didn't pack the brown sugar because, um, we are supposed to be watching that. This just sounded so good though! I used a 2 lb pork tenderloin, did not brown first (I never do) and served with rice, green beans, and the cinnamon applesauce also as a side. Ginger as listed. I poured off the crockpot juices into a saucepan and thickened with cornstarch mixed in with about 1/3 cup water, brought to boil to thicken it. Served the sauce over the pork and also the rice. Very good. Hubby gave 4-1/2 stars, I'd say 4 if this were any sweeter as written. Will make again and I'm giving the recipe to my young adult kids- easy, cheap especially when the meat is on sale, and tastes great.

Happy Shrimp

Reviewed: Mar. 31, 2009
Sorry, didn't think this was anything special. Made about 3 servings. Maybe less basil and more garlic? I'm not sure what it needed.

Pork Chops with Apple Curry Sauce

Reviewed: Oct. 16, 2008
Milder crockpot version using pork roast: I used a 2 lb pork roast, and since I was using a crockpot, cut the apple juice to 1 cup as suggested for the original, chopped the onion and apple into dice-size pieces. Used Honey Crisp apple to see if would hold shape better and the pieces on top of the roast did. I only had cinnamon flavor applesauce, sweetened version with Splenda, so I cut the curry powder down to 1 Tbsp just in case the cinnamon made it too much. Next time I will add more, but this was mild with a curry flavor. I also used ham soup base as I had no chicken bouillon; I don't think it makes a difference due to the curry flavor. Used 1/8 tsp garlic powder as substitute for the garlic. I did not caramelize the onion, just put it with apple chunks on top of the roast, which I did not brown either. (Did not use margarine.) I did mix the other ingredients together though before pouring over everything in the crockpot, cooked for 5 hours on high and we liked it. Smelled WONDERFUL while cooking. It was not spicy. It made a LOT of sauce, 4-1/2 cups - might decrease the apple juice and add some apple jelly instead next time. This sauce might be good with ham or another meat so I didn't throw out the leftovers yet.

Zesty Slow Cooker Chicken Barbecue

Reviewed: Oct. 9, 2008
Very tasty, made this with KC Masterpiece BBQ sauce (regular) and it did make quite a bit of sauce. However, there is only 2 of us, we only ate 1/2 of it; will see if it is too much when the leftovers are shredded. Mashed potatoes and corn good accompaniments.
