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!

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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!

Low-Fat Cream of Tomato Soup

Reviewed: Jul. 19, 2011
I liked this easy-to-make soup. I used FF half and half because it's what I had, but I just couldn't bring myself to add the cloves. It just seemed too weird. 2 tsp. salt is way too much. Start with 1 tsp. and go from there. This easy-to-make soup definitely has potential with a good bit of tweaking.

Pueblo Green Chile Stew

Reviewed: Feb. 16, 2011
I did almost exactly what Keri did with this recipe. First of all, I cut the recipe in half and omitted the oil since my pork was cooked already. I started with a can of tomatoes and green chiles (didn't have any fresh tomatoes) as well as 1 can of diced green chiles. I added frozen corn kernels and the rest of the ingredients, except for the meat, and cooked it for 15 minutes. Then I added the left-over cooked pork tenderloin and cooked it for about 20-30 more minutes. Delicious!

No-Bake Chocolate Coconut Cookies

Reviewed: Apr. 5, 2013
I don't understand how people can have such different results from the same recipe! I followed the recipe exactly and even went back and checked proportions and directions. These turned out extremely dry for me, and I had a hard time getting them to hold their shape without crumbling and falling apart. I like that they don't have peanut butter and do have coconut. I just think the proportions of liquid to dry ingredients is wrong somehow.
