Linguine Pasta with Shrimp and Tomatoes

Reviewed: Jan. 13, 2010
I doubled this for a family gathering of 13 adults, & a handful of children and it was fantastic. I like to make things as early as possilbe so I can relax prior to dinner, so a few tips. When doubling, you can start the sauce 2 hours ahead to time, no problem (then the only last minute thing is the shrimp). I used canned, diced tomatoes which have a lot of liquid, so I also added a sm. can of tomato paste in spurts to thicken. I did add cream the last 1/2 hour to give it that creamy sauce, that ppl always seem to enjoy. Used "Noilly Prat" vermouth for the wine, and this made a huge difference in the taste - it was excellent! I did cut back to (2) 12-oz packages of linguine, as others recommended - totally agree, more pasta & the sauce would be too thin. If doubling, remember that boiling a huge pot of water takes a lot of time (for pasta) - start in advance again. Even if the pasta sits for a little bit after boiled (30 minutes+/-), it will be fine once you mix it with the sauce - the sauce will break it apart (or you can mix a little olive oil in the pasta while it sits, to keep it seperated). This is simple & you'll get great reviews!

Slow Cooker Buffalo Chicken Sandwiches

Reviewed: Jan. 29, 2010
This was really easy, but I just thought it was average - basically tastes like the generic buffalo wings you get in a bar, minus the bones. Might be a good method, with a good barbecue sauce for a shredded barbecue chicken sandwich. Otherwise, I suggest using it as a dip with some cheese, black olives, etc. with tortilla chips.

Pork Chops for the Slow Cooker

Reviewed: Mar. 23, 2010
Turned out a little too dry for me, at 5-1/2 hrs. cook time on low setting. Next time I'll reduce cook time. I used the 1/2 c. soy sauce, 1/4 c. honey, & 1/4 bbq sauce combination, & was satisfied with the turn out - just seems to be missing something (?). Maybe, as someone else suggested, a spicier bbq sauce - open to suggestions.

Slow Cooker Honey Garlic Chicken

Reviewed: Apr. 20, 2010
This is a great mid-week family meal - better than just an ordinary chicken dinner. But I found the sauce a little too sweet & w/ so much of it left over, I didn't know what to do with it - too sweet for a gravy & you don't need that much of it to top the chicken. Is there a way to make it not so sweet as it would be great to use as a gravy to serve w/ potatoes along side? Regardless, chicken turned out perfect and flavorful (I cooked on high for 1 hour, then low for 5 hours - no knife needed - perfect!)

Slow Cooker Pork Chops II

Reviewed: Apr. 21, 2010
Good, for a crock pot recipe. I find it hard to get the perfect, "fall-off-the-bone yet not too dry" texture that I like - I think crock-pots vary so it's diffictult to gage. I do not reccomend "basting" as the recipe calls for, as that defeats the purpose of using a crock pot - you do not want heat to escape until the very end. This was good and easy, but not the best way to cook a flavorful pork chop. Do it, if you need something easy.

Slow Cooker Carnitas

Reviewed: May 6, 2010
4 stars for the simplicity of the preparation - doesn't get much easier than this. Did double ingredients for the dry rub; cooked on low 10 hours - no need to turn roast @ 5 hrs (defeats the purpose of a slow cooker). Served on tortillas w/ black beans & cheese - good stuff!

Tangy Slow Cooker Pork Roast

Reviewed: Jul. 6, 2010
Whole family was able to enjoy this. Nice family meal - not too extravagant w/outrageous flavorings that intimidate the kids but something a little bit more than the ordinary meal. Very simple to prepare (I did 2 hrs on "high" & 4-1/2 hrs on "low") - came out nice & moist. It's a keeper!

Slow Cooker Chili II

Reviewed: Oct. 14, 2010
This is a great, quick chili (when you know you won't have time in the evening to make dinner). There are definitely more interesting, or complex chili's out there but this is very FAMILY-FRIENDLY. Top w/ sour cream, cheese, & onions & don't forget the cornbread! Use left over for burritos.

Chili Rick's

Reviewed: Nov. 5, 2010
This tasted like an upscale "sloppy joe". Chili should have a distinguishable flavor - this way way too sweet - the bbq sauce is too overwhelming.

Asian Coleslaw

Reviewed: May 4, 2011
I love the flavor, but forget that not everyone else does. If you're a peanut butter "sauce" fan, this is an absolute hit. Can do everything day before - chop veggies and make sauce - just don't mix until you're ready.

Italian Pasta Salad I

Reviewed: May 21, 2011
I like this recipe for its simplicity. I make it with the two dressings & parmesan (reduced amounts) and set a container of it aside for the kids lunches. I add their personal veggie preference before packing & their good to go. The remaining salad is for the grown ups! Whatever sounds good is what goes in - sundried tomatoes, smoked salmon, olives, along with any seasonal veggies. Top with some fresh basil & ground pepper & you're set. Great "make ahead" recipe. Give it a try!!

Grilled Pork Tenderloins

Reviewed: Jun. 13, 2011
This is so easy & good - nice Japanese style pork. Use a thin teriyaki sauce, like Kikkoman; not the thick ones like Yoshida. Then the other flavors come out. Marinated over nite & was very moist. Not sure about the cooking method? I ended up alternating closing/opening bbq lid - cooked close to 30 minutes?? Excellent!

Rosemary Ranch Chicken Kabobs

Reviewed: Jul. 6, 2011
This is such an easy recipe w/ great results. Perfect mid-week family meal when you don't want to put a lot of effort into cooking. It's not "knock your socks off" but it's pretty close; like I said, it's easy! Don't overcook the chicken!

Strawberry Spinach Salad I

Reviewed: Aug. 1, 2011
Delicious! Make ahead tip - make dressing the day before. Seems thick, but works out fine. I substitued "balsamic vinegar" for the white vinegar. Used "candied" pecans and added bits of bacon. Very sweet so not a lot of dressing required.

Slow Cooker Cranberry Pork

Reviewed: Jan. 10, 2012
The simplicity of this is wonderful! I had a 3 lb. roast and cooked on low for 8 hours - came out dry. Should've read the reviews first! Definitely, need to salt & pepper first. Will try again with less cook time.
