All-Day Apple Butter

Reviewed: Nov. 20, 2011
I make apple butter in the crock pot and it isn't necessary to peel. I cut, core and quarter and that's all I need to do. Be careful with your sugar, it really depends on the sweetness of the apples you use. If you're using a sweet apple and you add too much sugar you are going to end up with too sweet Apple Butter. I run the mixture through my Ninja for less than a minute, then pour into hot jars and the canning process. Easy peasy!!!

Refreshing Cucumber Salad

Reviewed: Sep. 16, 2011
the only thing better is to use grape tomatoes instead of slicing a whole tomato! Tastes like summer!

Anna's Amazing Easy Pleasy Meatballs over Buttered Noodles

Reviewed: Sep. 10, 2011
Wow! Great dinner idea, especially for the kids. I would have given it 5 stars but I prefer using Cream of Onion soup instead of mushroom. To me mushroom soup is so distinctive I can always tell when it's in a dish. Cream of Onion isn't overpowering with onion flavor and it doesn't overtake the rest of the ingredients. Looking forward to having this dish again soon.

Green Salsa

Reviewed: Aug. 11, 2011
Four stars for the ingredients. White onion is better and you have to add lime juice for that little extra jolt. Tomatillos are best for salsa when they've been roasted, this goes for the garlic, onion, and peppers too. Very east, just lay out on a cookie sheet and put under the broiler until the veges begin to look charred. Turn the veges over and let char on the other side. Remove from broiler and add veges to the food processor and chop. Add lime juice to taste and a little kosher salt too. DELISH!!

Slow Cooker Salisbury Steak

Reviewed: Apr. 9, 2011
This sounds wonderful, can't wait to try it. Just a note for those who didn't want to use Cream of Chicken soup...I'm not big on the taste of Cream of Mushroom soup in dishes (seems like when I use Cream of Mushroom or Cream of Celery that's all I can taste). I've discovered Cream of Onion soup which gives you another layer of onion flavor and the creaminess you're looking for but doesn't dominate with the mushroom or celery flavor. It also works great when you're making meat free recipies. Hope that helps someone, it did me.

Stuffed Mexican Peppers

Reviewed: Apr. 1, 2011
sounds delish, I will have to try out the meat mixture next time I make stuffed peppers. I've found a way to make awesome stuffed peppers is to core the peppers, stuff them and then put them in the crock pot UPSIDE DOWN. Add two cans of canned, diced tomates (fire roasted are the best), two cans of water and cook on high for about four or five hours. This cooks the filling nicely as well as softens the peppers. House smells great and the fam is very happy!

for another level of flavor, when boiling your potatoes, use chicken broth instead of water....delish!

Quick Savory Cranberry Glazed Pork Loin Roast

Reviewed: Dec. 26, 2010
I made this for Thanksgiving this year for my husband (he doesn't like turkey). I gave it three stars as a compromise because he liked it but I didn't like it at all. It was a pretty easy recipe to follow but it took quite abit longer to cook than the time stated in the recipe.

Swanson® Ultra Creamy Mashed Potatoes

Reviewed: Dec. 16, 2010
I made these potatoes for Thanksgiving this year and they were the best mashed potatoes I have ever had! My daughter said, "if I could taste a cloud, I know this is what it would taste like." I used Yukon Gold potatoes. AFter draining the chicken broth, I used my electric mixer until potatoes were smooth. Then added warmed half and half, melted butter and approximately 1/2 cup of the reserved broth. I added salt and pepper to taste and....PERFECTION. I would give this recipe 10 stars if I could. Best mashed potatoes ever! :-)

Stuffed Jack-O-Lantern Bell Peppers

Reviewed: Oct. 30, 2010
I think this is about the cutest idea I've seen in quite awhile. You are really creative! Would give this 10 stars if I could!!! I absolutely love stuffed peppers and making them this way might very well get my family to try them too. Thanks for the terrific idea!

Mexican Rice II

Reviewed: Apr. 21, 2010
I gave three stars because this is how I start out my mexican rice but I do some things differently. I think mexican rice should be mildly flavored so it isn't necessary to add alot of extra seasoning as some reviewers added. I have experimented many times with how much oil to use and 2 tablespoons is just right for cooking one cup of rice. It important to saute your onions and garlic before adding the rice, otherwise by the time the onions are translucent the rice will be burned. Do not take the lid off as that interferes with the moisture and heat. I have glass lids for my pan so I can see what's going on. Towards the end I just shake the pan to prevent the rice from sticking. Turns out perfectly every time.
