Korean Slow Cooker Pork Chops

Reviewed: Mar. 19, 2011
5 star w/ suggestions from others. Here's how to take a 4 star & make it 5 star: (1) use 1/2 c. low sodium chicken broth; (2) sub Ponzu (seasoned soy sauce) for soy sauce. Ponzu had 400mg sodium / svg, lite tarmari has 700 mg sodium and regular soy sauce has 900+mg sodium. That's it. Has a GREAT flavor, pork chops shredded apart and are neighbors at the condo wanted to know what smelled so good. We served over Jasmine rice with stir fried mixed veggies. The "zucchini and onion stir fry" recipe from this site is really good with this too. Thanks for sharing. We had to find the Korean chile paste at a local Asian market since Whole Foods, Earthfare and local Ingles didn't have it but it was worth the hunt to get it!

World's Best Lasagna

Reviewed: May 1, 2011
For our taste, we didn't like the ricotta mixture and we prefer this sites "best marinara sauce yet."

Chipotle Crusted Pork Tenderloin

Reviewed: Apr. 5, 2011
If you like it spicy ~ this is a 5 star. Heed other reviewers suggestions: (1) marinate in pineapple-orange juice overnight or some other juice to sweeten and tenderize meat. (2) If you like it medium hot, cut chiptole powder down to 2-2 1/2 Tbsp., mild = 1-1 1/2 Tbsp. I get my chipolte powder at Whole Foods. My husband does not like "sweet" meat dishes but loved this! The marinating, dry rub and smoky grill taste infused an unbeatable combination of flavors. We sliced meat, served with grilled potatoes, green salad and grilled bread and was a great monthly dinner party for our friends.

Moroccan Spicy Carrot Salad

Reviewed: Mar. 28, 2013
Quite a winner with great balance of flavors and I love a new way to cook a healthy vegetable side dish that even my picky husband who doesn't like carrots but got 2nds of this and said it was a keeper.

Chicken Pot Pie IX

Reviewed: Mar. 9, 2013
Per my families taste, 4 stars as is....5+++ stars with compiled other's input. To save you time after reviewing a few hundred: (1) chicken thighs or breast work equally well - use per your taste and money preference. (2) Cook chicken and veggies of choice (others added potato cubes, corn) in chicken broth - I use a great product called "Better Than Broth" chicken base and use this drained nutrient-rich broth to add to onion-flour mix. (3) After onions start to brown and BEFORE flour is added, toss in extra seasoning...I used a favorite spice blend called "Simon & Garfunkle" which is a blend of what else...Parsley, Sage, Rosemary & Thyme. (4) Depending on your preference for pot pie gravy thickness, as is, it's pudding thick. Like others, I like mine a little more loose and easily fixed this with other's recommendation to add additional 1/2-3/4c broth but could add less flour. NOW...this is worthy of more than 5 stars!!! Wonderful base, thanks for sharing!

Grandma's Corn Pudding

Reviewed: Apr. 2, 2013
Being a relatively proficient cook and dietitian, I made changes. Corn is naturally sweet, so eliminated the sugar totally, used 1/2 the butter; added 3 Tbsp greek yogurt; and added 1/3c. diced onion, with 1/2 can green chiles.

Tangy Slow Cooker Pork Roast

Reviewed: Mar. 6, 2011
Very good recipe but a little too sweet for out taste even after reducing sugar in half. This recipe is definitely worth making again but will omit sugar totally. I also subbed 4-6 cloves fresh garlic for garlic powder (real garlic much better tasting and offers immune health benefits). Thanks for sharing

Sesame Noodles

Reviewed: Jan. 31, 2011
5 stars with additions: Per other reviewers I cut oil to 3 tbsp.; sugar to 3 tbsp. I used 1 tsp. sweet chili sauce + 1 tsp. sriracha hot chili sauce, and added 1- 1 1/2 tsp fresh ginger, chopped green onions and cilantro. By preference: I used KAME Stir Fry Thai Rice Noodles; added all sorts of vegetables and 1 lb. chicken tenders, chopped tamari almonds and now it's 5 starts for me.

Thai Green Curry Chicken

Reviewed: Dec. 4, 2010
I had high hopes after reading other reviews but this was nothing like my favorite Thai restaurant in Asheville. I made exactly as the recipe stated as others said it was perfect. I used full fat coconut milk and my only rationale for my dislike with so many favorable comments is as one reviewer stated different Thai curry paste vary in heat and flavor and my health food store only offered "Taste of Thai" brand and a different brand might be better?

Slow Cooker Italian Beef for Sandwiches

Reviewed: Nov. 29, 2010
This is awesome and I'm not a fan of beef but wanted something the guys could enjoy that were helping my husband clear a field. Threw this in the crock pot which was so nice and easy. Consulted ~ 15-20 reviews and found the one's that said they read 150+ most helpful. Basically, they just doubled the seasonings and used a chuck roast. They also shredded the meat and put back in for last hr to really absorb the flavor. At this point, I added 1 large onion and 1/2 red, 1/2 green bell peppers all thinly sliced to go with in on sandwiches. Toasted on thick sourdough bread slices with muenster cheese slices, added jalapeños and pepper jack cheese on some for those that liked it with a kick. All the men raved and told my husband how lucky he was....if they only knew how easy it was but that's our secret:)

Marie's Easy Slow Cooker Pot Roast

Reviewed: Mar. 2, 2010
I don't like beef roast but I loved this one. I tried it because my husband is the beef eater and he loved it too. So from a non-beef eater, this is definately worth trying. Made no changes because I don't usually eat, nor do I cook beef so didn't know where to begin modifying it but it was great the way it was.

Roasted Pork Loin

Reviewed: Feb. 22, 2010
Very good, simple recipe. Only change/s I made; (1) assembled in crock pot on low; (2) added ~ 1 tsp fresh lime juice to perk it up a bit. Also took others advice and when it was done, added a little cornstarch to crock pots contents to make a slightly thickened glaze for mashed potatoes. Wonderful and so simple.

Bada Bing Pork Chops

Reviewed: Jul. 5, 2013
Very good as is but our tastes enjoyed a little more with 1/4 cup Worcestershire + 1/4c. red wine and added 3-4 crushed garlic cloves + 1/2 tsp dried rosemary. Great base for customizing to your liking. Thanks for sharing.

Baked Asparagus with Balsamic Butter Sauce

Reviewed: Mar. 28, 2013
5 star recipe with 1 minor change mentioned by many other reviewers so I too followed their recommendation and agree (why I rated it a 4-star as written, but it's a DEFINITE 5-star with this 1 simple change)...reverse the soy sauce & balsamic vinegar amounts = 1Tbsp Balsamic vinegar, 1 tsp. soy sauce and it's a perfect 10!

Chicken Cordon Bleu II

Reviewed: Jan. 31, 2013
Like many others, I'm not a fan of those who rate recipes based on their OWN creations so I'm rating this as a 5-star as is BUT...as an RD, I'm adding healthful changes I made the 2nd time I made this awesome recipe that my family agrees doesn't take away from the wonderful flavors but will safe you calories, fat that aren't necessary. (1) use shaved deli ham - no flavor change but less sodium, calories & fat and much easier to roll. (2) used 2Tbsp. whipped butter and 2 Tbsp olive oil for a blend that allows for higher heat, and less saturated fat and added the heart healthy mono fat. (3) substituted lite coconut milk for the whipping cream saving calories, fat but with same great richness with all the same sinful goodness this dish has to offer. thanks for sharing.

Southwestern Pasta Salad

Reviewed: Jun. 26, 2010
Awesome base with others suggestions added like cutting back olive oil to 2-3 Tbsp., added diced red onion, avocado, jicama for texture, and I halved the chili powder and added an equal amount of chipolte powder for a a little more heat with a smokey addition that was nice for our taste. Thanks so much for sharing. This dish was perfect for our guests who many are vegetarian but I had shredded chicken on the side for our meat lover guests and all were very pleased with this dish.

Split Pea Soup

Reviewed: Mar. 2, 2010
Used 1/2 chicken, 1/2 ham broth. Used center cut slice of ham instead of bone. Added 2 cups each: carrot, celery, potato. Threw in handful of roasted red peppers I had to use and added nice color contrast. Added 2 bay leaves, 1-2 Tbsp. fresh dill and about 1/2 cup fresh parsley in place of the herb seasonings and this was a 5 star conversion.

Italian Wedding Soup I

Reviewed: Feb. 11, 2010
Very good base recipe. Being a dietitian, I like more vegetables so I added more carrots, celery, subbed bok choy instead and used others advice to only add 1/2 cup cooked orzo. Do cook orzo seperately. Also added a bay leaf in for another dimension of flavor. Soup was better the 2nd and 3rd time so definately make extra.

Best Marinara

Reviewed: Jan. 15, 2010
Gave it a 5 star for simplicity and good flavor. I like to add more spices and play with it but as is, it's a very good, very simple recipe.
