Honey-Garlic Slow Cooker Chicken Thighs

Reviewed: Feb. 17, 2014
Easy to make and uses pantry staples. Always a very good thing! I doubled the chicken thighs (but not the rest of the ingredients) and put half in the freezer for a quick meal when I need it.

Slow Cooker Sweet and Sour Chicken

Reviewed: Mar. 3, 2012
This is a very easy and quick meal to throw together in the slow cooker. I found it a little too sweet, but my husband thought it was wonderful. I used Sweet Baby Ray's Hickory Smoked BBQ Sauce because it's what I had, but would imagine you could control the sweetness by using a different kind of BBQ sauce. I served it over rice and would make it again.

Slow Cooker Spicy Chicken

Reviewed: Dec. 30, 2011
Followed recipe exactly and put it in my small slow cooker. So easy and it makes a tasty, filling dinner. I shredded the chicken and put it in tortillas with lettuce, tomatoes, cheese, and sour cream.***Had about 1/2 left after first meal. Made a Chicken Taco Soup the next night by adding leftovers to 2 (14 oz.) cans diced tomatoes, one can blended, 1 can whole kernel corn, 1 can kidney beans, and 1-2 T. of Taco Seasoning I from this site. Delicious repurposed recipe!

Jellybean Bark

Reviewed: Mar. 31, 2010
Instead of pouring the chocolate onto a jelly roll pan, I decided to try something different. I put 4 jelly beans into an egg mold and then spooned the coating around them. What I ended up having was jellybean eggs. I think the kids will love these at our family Easter celebration.

Garlic Mashed Cauliflower

Reviewed: May 13, 2013
Oh. My. Goodness. This is unbelievable! I have tried mashed cauliflower before and it was terrible. I don't know if this is so good because of steaming it or using the food processor instead of a mixer or adding cream cheese and parm. But whatever it is, I'm not messing with it! My husband even thought he was eating mashed potatoes (just not my usual ones :) I will definitely make this again. ***7/31/13 - I made this again and messed with it :) I used Laughing Cow Light Garlic and Herb Cheese Wedges and refrigerated minced garlic. I also used my immersion blender which worked very well. Came out great and was even easier to make with less clean up.

Healthier Chicken Enchiladas I

Reviewed: Jun. 19, 2012
I used FF plain yogurt instead of the sour cream and corn tortillas just because I prefer them. I also threw my peppers and onion in the pan and sauteed them slightly, but they were still crunchy, which I like. I also did not roll the tortillas but made them into a layered casserole. I love the addition of red bell pepper and black beans to this healthier version. I enjoyed this dish and would definitely make it again.

Fresh Strawberry Sauce

Reviewed: Apr. 23, 2012
I made this sauce exactly like the recipe except I did not puree the strawberries because I wanted bits of fruit in it. I did have to add a little more cornstarch mixture to thicken it up. With that said, though, this is a great sauce for pancakes, ice cream, cheesecake, or pound cake. Just the perfect sweetness for my taste.

Sugar-Free and Dairy-Free Slow Cooker Steel-Cut Oatmeal

Reviewed: Apr. 24, 2014
I followed the recipe as far as ingredients go, omitting the optional raisins. I have 3 slow cookers, but not one has a medium setting. I used the smallest one, a 2-quart slow cooker. I used the HIGH setting and stirred at the end of each hour for 2 hours. Then I turned it to LOW for another hour, stirring after each half hour segment. I understand some people do not want sugar, and I can respect that. I prefer a small amount of erythritol/stevia blend and added it at the end before I filled 6 small half pint jars. Now I have breakfast ready for the week and can add berries or nothing at all. ***Update - This is delicious cold even! A great grab-n-go breakfast!

Ham and Hash Brown Quiche

Reviewed: Dec. 5, 2012
This was delicious! I served it for dinner with a salad and fruit, but it would also be great for a ladies luncheon or tea.

Honey Glazed Chicken

Reviewed: Apr. 18, 2013
This recipe is so easy and quick to fix, and it tastes good too. I used lite soy sauce and only 1 huge chicken breast, but I made the entire amount of sauce so there would be enough to pour over the rice. Definitely a keeper.

Healthier Baked Slow Cooker Chicken

Reviewed: Aug. 16, 2012
I like the idea of elevating the chicken using the foil balls, adding carrots and onions, and using the slow cooker to make the evening meal easier. BUT I really prefer the spice mixture of Roast Sticky Chicken-Rotisserie Style. That is by far my favorite whole chicken recipe on this site. This one is just ok for me.

Best Ever Pinto Beans

Reviewed: Apr. 20, 2012
Lots of people in the South eat pinto beans as a meal, but I had only eaten white beans this way. I chose to follow this recipe as a guideline rather than following it exactly. I decided to make this late in the day, so I did the quick soak method where I brought the beans and water to a boil and let them sit covered for an hour. I then poured off the water and used 2 cans of chicken broth and 4 cups of water. I omitted the ham hock because it makes food greasier than what I prefer. I did have to add more water as the beans cooked. When the beans were just tender, I added chopped onion, ham pieces, the brown sugar, and tomato sauce. I could not find a 6.5 oz. can of tomato sauce, so I used all of the 8 oz. can I bought. I cooked it all for another hour as the recipe states. I ate this for dinner accompanied with cornbread and green onions.

Five-Minute Blueberry Pie

Reviewed: Sep. 8, 2010
Can't get any easier than this. I substituted Splenda for the sugar, and it turned out perfectly.

Starbucks® Caramel Frappuccino Copycat Recipe

Reviewed: Dec. 22, 2013
I loved this! I used Truvia instead of sugar and skim milk, which turned this into a Caramel Frappuccino Light. My newest addiction!

Uptown Red Beans and Rice

Reviewed: Jan. 27, 2011
This is a favorite of ours because it tastes great and is quick and easy to fix. I omit the oil to lessen the calories and add only 8 oz. of the smoked turkey sausage to the rice mix and water. My husband likes to top his with grated sharp cheddar.

Healthier Golden Pork Chops

Reviewed: Jun. 28, 2012
Juicy and tender pork chops along with delicious fresh veggies! I didn't thicken the sauce with the cornstarch just because I was starving and was ready to eat. I was still able to use the sauce on rice, though. It was just a little thin.

Dijon Mashed Potatoes

Reviewed: Nov. 5, 2010
I used 4 Yukon Gold potatoes. This is a case where I wish the recipe had stated a weight rather than the number of potatoes. I also used 3/4 cup FF sour cream and no milk at all because it was already the right consistency. I started with 1/2 the mustard and am very glad I did. It was still pretty strong tasting. This was ok but not something I will make again without some major tweaking.

Low-Carb Fauxtato Salad

Reviewed: Oct. 16, 2014
This is a delicious recipe to add to your menu even if you're not on a low-carb diet! I will admit, I was serving only 2 people, so I made only half the "sauce" and used only 2 eggs, but I did use more than half my cauliflower. (What's the standard size of a cauliflower anyway?) I used the "taste as you go" policy. Definitely a keeper and a recipe I will make again and again.

Slow Cooker Barbeque Chicken

Reviewed: Nov. 2, 2013
This recipe would be fine for a quick and easy slow cooker meal. Certainly a huge help for a busy day. However, it really wouldn't be much different than just pouring on Sweet Baby Ray's barbecue sauce. I couldn't even detect a hint of the red pepper flakes, and Ray doesn't really need any extra sugar since it's quite sweet to begin with.

Delicious and Easy Corn on the Cob

Reviewed: May 24, 2014
I always cook my corn on the cob in the shuck in the microwave for delicious, crispy corn. This corn tasted just as good and my husband didn't have to burn his hands shucking the corn. He says this is the way he wants his corn from now on :)
