Lemon Poke Cake II

Reviewed: Sep. 15, 2012
BIG FANS!! I couldn't find lemon pudding mix, so I switched it up - used lemon cake mix and vanilla pudding. I followed the rest of the recipe exactly. The glaze ended up thicker than I thought it would, so whatever didn't seep into the "pokes", I re-spooned over the cake. It was delicious. The cake didn't last the night!!

Mountain Apple Cobbler

Reviewed: Oct. 20, 2012
Oh I was SO pleased with this recipe!! I reduced the butter by 1/2 a stick and mixed brown and white sugar. I also used about 1/2 a bottle of Mountain Dew vs. the whole thing. Served with Baskin Robbins vanilla ice cream. Dessert was DELICIOUS!!!

Mexican Bean Salad

Reviewed: Sep. 5, 2012
I made this last night for a football party this evening. I took a taste and the dressing is SO tasty! I followed the recipe almost completely. Like other reviewers suggested, I halved the oil, vinegar and sugar, and I added a few extra "dashes" of Franks hot sauce. I didn't measure the minced cilantro, but once it filled a handful, I figured that was a good amount. Next time, and there WILL be a next time, I think I will add some chopped cucumber, a small amount of tomato and even maybe some celery or carrots for more crunch.

Baked Slow Cooker Chicken

Reviewed: Sep. 15, 2012
I made changes, but I really enjoyed the results. I did not use the foil; my 4 1/2 pound bird was atop quartered red potatoes, baby carrots, onions and celery. I also chopped the same veggies (no potato) and stuffed them into the cavity. I blended paprika, freshly chopped garlic, sea salt, and black pepper into room temperature butter and rubbed the mixture under and over the skin. A tablespoon of the butter went into the cavity also. My slow cooker runs hot, so I cooked everything on the low setting for 5 hours. I was able to get the bird onto the platter without the carcass collapsing, and the meat was moist, flavorful and very tasty. I made a quick gravy with a flour roux and the juices from under the meat and veggies. I think that it is important to note that I used absolutely no liquid, there is no need. The meat will make plenty of juice that can be used for gravy, a quick stock, and so on. Next time - and there WILL be a next time - I think I'll switch up seasoning, maybe use rosemary and thyme. Looking forward to the chicken salad I am making tomorrow with the small amount of leftover meat!!

Slow Cooker Beef Stew IV

Reviewed: Sep. 27, 2012
Ok, this was an excellent base recipe!! I used almost all of the ingredients as written, except that I cut the onions down to 1 and swapped out the onion soup mix for a pre-mixed stew seasoning packet; my husband isn't a big onion fan. And I did use 2 cups of boiling beef broth instead of plain water. I cooked the stew on low for 7 hours, the last 30 minutes with the mixed in flour paste. The gravy thickened perfectly. My husband says this stew MIGHT be the best thing I ever cooked!!

Apple Breakfast Bread

Reviewed: Oct. 20, 2012
I've made this recipe 3x in the last 2 weeks! My husband and toddler are both big fans. I reduced the amount of cloves used to 1/4 tsp (personal preference) and used half light brown sugar, half white sugar. I shredded the apples and was very pleased with the amount of juice rendered; it helped the stir-ability of the batter considerably!!

Extreme Banana Nut Bread 'EBNB'

Reviewed: Oct. 20, 2012
I'm not a banana fan, but my husband and toddler daughter are. Finding myself with several overripe bananas, I sought out a BNB recipe. This did not disappoint! I used finely chopped walnuts and upped the amount to 1.5 cups. I added a tablespoon of canola oil to keep the bread moist and I threw in a few dashes of vanilla. Hubby and little girl loved the bread! Next time I think I'm going to add a few handfuls of mini chocolate chips.

Icing for Sour Cream Cookies

Reviewed: Dec. 15, 2012
Just made this tonight - trying a new sugar cookie recipe and needed a good, sweet icing. This icing worked beautifully! Since this was kind of am experiment, I didn't add any coloring, but I will going forward. Very tasty, sweet but not overly so. Perfect balance for my new, not-so-sweet soft cookies.

Soft Sugar Cookies V

Reviewed: Dec. 15, 2012
Very happy with this recipe. I have been using a different sugar cookie recipe for years, and my husband asked me to find one that was "softer". I make LOTS of Christmas cookies, and I had high hopes for this recipe. It didn't disappoint. I topped it with Icing For Sour Cream Cookies from this site and it was a nice balance of a sweet topping on this cookie.

Popovers

Reviewed: Apr. 21, 2013
Made this recipe this morning for my husband and my toddler. BIG HIT! I did add a few dashes of pure vanilla, I used (almost) room temp eggs and milk, and baked at 450 for 15 minutes, 350 for another 15 minutes. Also, as I saw in some reviews for popovers, I preheated the pan with a bit of butter in each cup for about 90 seconds. My husband can't wait for me to make these again next Sunday!

Bacon Wrapped Hotdogs

Reviewed: Sep. 15, 2012
Made these for football Sunday. I used a little more brown sugar, given the size of my slow cooker, and I had to switch the temperature to the warm setting after less than 2 hours. In the end, I cooked them for about 5 hours, 2 on low and 3 on warm. The bacon crisped up nicely on almost all of them. My husband and his buddies were big fans!

Baked Chicken Nuggets

Reviewed: Sep. 15, 2012
I cut the chicken into 1 inch chunks and soaked the chunks in milk for about 2 hours in the fridge. I also baked the nuggets on a cooling rack. Otherwise, I followed the recipe exactly. My husband and 16 month daughter LOVED the nuggets. I thought they were a little too salty but good overall.
