Italian Stewed Tomatoes

Reviewed: Aug. 3, 2013
I'm a fan of slow cooking; I had 4 pounds of past-prime, wrinkled grape tomatoes and thought this recipe might work with a slow cooker. I wasn't disappointed! I didn't have celery, so I didn't use it. I added one chopped raw onion. I also added Italian seasoning and garlic, as some other reviewers did. I didn't peel the tomatoes, but I cooked them as-is, on low heat, overnight. It was so good, in fact, that I'm going to make it again, this time with Roma and beefsteak tomatoes. It tasted delicious when I combined it with our rice-cooker rice "mixture" that I made (1/2 cup rice, 1/2 cup spelt, 1/2 cup quinoa, 1/2 cup barley, 1/2 cup millet, 1/2 cup chopped onion). Great recipe!

Rosemary Roasted Turkey

Reviewed: Dec. 26, 2012
I added cut up sweet potatoes, onions, and regular potatoes to the pan with the turkey; everything was cooked at the same time and tasted delicious!

Slow Cooker Sweet Potato Casserole

Reviewed: Nov. 25, 2010
I was thrilled to see a slow cooker recipe, to free up my oven, for Sweet Potato Casserole! It was Turkey Day for just me and my husband, and he doesn't particularly LIKE sweet potatoes, so I felt free to improvise and omit what I didn't have and what I didn't like! I did NOT use the pecans, or any sugar. In a large bowl, I just mashed the ONE can of sweet potatoes (again, it was just for the 2 of us), added a tablespoon of melted margarine, a tablespoon of orange juice, ONE egg, NO milk, no flour, and sprayed the slow cooker with olive oil to grease. I took a lot of people's advice: Cooked on high for 2 hours, turned to low the 3rd hour, and also at the beginning of the 3rd hour, I covered the entire top of the sweet potatoes with LARGE marshmallows (they melted into the potatoes). What a wonderful flavor! I definitely will make this again! Of COURSE I gave it 5 stars, because I didn't make it as written. (If I had made it EXACTLY as written and THEN didn't like it, I THEN would have decreased the number of stars! How can ANYONE give a recipe less than 5 stars if they don't make it EXACTLY as written??? I am still mystified by that!)

Kansas Tomato Sandwich

Reviewed: Aug. 29, 2010
One of my all-time favorite, refreshing summer sandwiches since I was a kid growing up in London! My Mum just added sliced fresh cucumbers to round out the flavor and to add just a little crunch! Delicious!

Curried Squash Soup

Reviewed: Oct. 27, 2009
What a sensational fall recipe! I used all the ingredients, in the amounts listed, and I was NOT disappointed! However, I DID skip the cream topping because I didn't have the ingredients, but I definitely did not miss it! The immersion blender helped to hasten the process and lessen the cleanup. Thanks Evelyn! We LOVE it!

Slow-Cooker Posole

Reviewed: Jan. 3, 2009
Wow! Followed other users' suggestions and used chicken instead of pork. Absolutely amazing! Also added fat-free refried beans (for additional protein) and served with shredded cabbage, cilantro (we put those into our soup bowl BEFORE adding the posole, to soften them a bit--great flavor), avocado and limes. Added extra hominy to stretch it even further. My husband loves this soup!

Pumpkin Soup

Reviewed: Dec. 13, 2008
Really loved this recipe! I baked the pumpkin with a butternut squash and nearly had enough pumpkin, but used 3/4 cup butternut squash to make up the 4 cups of pumpkin required. I used everything, except I omitted the thyme and added a dash of Garam Masala which made it taste divine. I used a "squirt" (about 1/4 cup) of light whipped cream instead of the 1/2 cup heavy whipping cream at the end. My husband loved the taste, too. I also pureed it with a wand hand mixer right in the cooking pot to save time. I will definitely make this again.

Left Over Turkey Sandwich

Reviewed: Nov. 29, 2008
Wonderful sandwich! The combination of sweet potatoes and cranberry sauce (whole berry) with the sliced turkey created a sensational taste! I didn't have sage, but I didn't miss it. I made this again for myself the next day.
