Slow Cooker Turkey Legs

Reviewed: Dec. 2, 2013
I learned that removing the turkey legs from the turkey and cooking them separately, the turkey breast will come out more tender. After some trouble removing the legs, I eyeballed the seasoning and but did not wrap in aluminum foil because I didn't think it was necessary. I added a little water to the bottom. The meat was tender, not oily, flavorful and fell off the bones. I was cautious to remove the splintered bone as recommended by another reviewer (GOOD TIP!). I will use the juice to make the gravy, because cooking the breast separately produced very little juice (mostly fat) and the breast was more tender than usual.

Rustic Autumn Fruit Tart

Reviewed: Nov. 22, 2012
I had difficulty with the dough. I used the food processor method and refrigerating it made it hard to work with. I ended up pressing it into the tart pan. I consulted a favorite cookbook recipe which recommended adding confectioners sugar to the dough for sweetness, so I brushed some on top of the dough inthe pan. to prevent the juice from making the crust soggy, they also recommended brushing the jam onto the crust before adding the apples, which I did. I used an apple peeler/corer/slicer to get uniform slices and hand sliced the pear. Rather than mix the apples with the sauce, I arranged the slices in the tart pan in a circle and intermingled the pear. I poured the sauce on top and brushed it around but used a little less OJ because my apples were a little soft. It's baking and looks fabulous but I;m rating this a 4 because the dough was hard to work with.

Cream of Pumpkin Soup

Reviewed: Oct. 28, 2012
I would use light cream instead of heavy cream. The cream overpowered the pumpkin and it tasted more like cream of onion soup. So I added more pumpkin to compensate the threw in a sprig of fresh thyme for a little more flavor. I gave it five stars based on my modifications but if I were to rate it on the original recipe, would have rated it at four stars.

Indian Dahl with Spinach

Reviewed: Jan. 7, 2011
This was absolutely fabulous. I did not have mustard seed so I used ground mustard. I took the hint from another reviewer and carmelized the onions, and I added the garam masala to the onions and let it cook in, and I added just a little more for punch. The yogurt was a nice addition. Did not use the milk. Ate it alone but will probably serve over brown rice. This is the best Dahl I've had so far.

Slow Cooker Cranberry Turkey Breast

Reviewed: Oct. 25, 2010
I was hesitant about using the onion soup mix and was right - I thought it overpowered the cranberry and OJ and gave it an odd taste (not to mention the processed, unnatural ingredients in the soup mix). I tossed the juice and now have to salvage the turkey somehow. Gave the recipe two stars for the idea of using the slow cooker.

Strawberry and Mandarin Salad

Reviewed: Apr. 28, 2010
Great flavor and textures. The sweetness counteracted the bitterness of the spring mix. I used balsamic vinegar instead, and I omitted the oranges.

Pretzel Turtles

Reviewed: Dec. 20, 2009
I couldn't find rolo so used Reisen dark choc cov caramel and they just fit on the Snaps. The pecan halves were really large so they were perfect. The only drawback was that the Reisen have too much caramel and they are a little hard to bite and chew. I have another bag of Reisen so I might cut them in half or find another way to mix pretzel, caramel and pecan into a cluster.

Chocolate Crinkles II

Reviewed: Dec. 20, 2009
I was grateful for all the suggestions. Mine didn't crinkle too much but they turned out great anyway. I used Hersheys Dark Special cocoa and they were really flavorful, crispy on the outside and soft on the inside. If not using parchment, a good spatula for getting them off the cookie sheet is a must.

Sweet Potato Casserole IV

Reviewed: Dec. 3, 2009
This was the absolute BEST sweet potato casserole I have ever had. I cut back on the sugar and butter little, and the brown sugar on the topping, and only used 1 egg and it was still fluffy and packed with sweet potato flavor. This is the only recipe I'll ever use.

Easy Turkey Curry

Reviewed: Dec. 3, 2009
This was a great, easy recipe and very tasty. I skipped the mushrooms and I was out of rice so I served over egg noodles. I also tried it on a toasted dinner roll which was better than the noodles.

Middle Eastern Rice with Black Beans and Chickpeas

Reviewed: Jul. 26, 2009
The aroma and flavor was great, but next time I'll double the rice and add onions and maybe hold back on the cayenne. The ratio seems a bit off, but maybe I used too much gr turkey.

Yummy Lemon Salmon Burgers

Reviewed: Apr. 7, 2009
The pattie held together and was a good flavor. I used lemon pepper rather than lemon juice. The canned salmon was a little scarey at first but I picked out the bones and skin it was just fine.

Tiny Chicken Turnovers

Reviewed: Dec. 14, 2008
I got great reviews on this but I thought the filling needed more flavor. I used pie crust, I minced the onion and I used and a pampered chef pastry press to make the crimp. I bought a whole rotisserie chicken which made it easier to prep the shredded chicken. The first batch took a little time prepare but the second took no time at all.

Andrea's Pasta Fagioli

Reviewed: Nov. 17, 2008
I substituted 2 c chicken broth for the water. I used small red beans rather than white. I made tubettini and cooked it separtely, but undercooked it and added it after the soup was done. This eliminated the pasta puffiness and liquid absorption. In 1/2 batch I added cooked italian sausage (sweet w/fennel) for my husband (cooked in red wine and sliced in bitsize pieces). It was easy and tasty and I don't think you could ruin this recipe if you added your own italian flair.

Steve's Chicken Korma

Reviewed: Oct. 6, 2008
It was easy to make and it had good flavor and nice consistency but it could have been spicier. I didn't have cinnamon. I added by accident some smoked paprika - didn't hurt it. I doubled the sauce so I would have more for the rice and added a touch of cornstarch. Next time I will not add as much cream so it has more flavor.
