Slow Cooker Texas Pulled Pork

Reviewed: Jul. 2, 2009
Absolutely delicious!!! I would give this one 10 stars! I cooked on low for 10 hours, then shredded and kept it on warm for a couple more hours. I am seriously keeping this recipe forever. This is the perfect weekend bbq/potluck food, and went great with grilled corn on the cob and red potato salad. Also, when you shred the meat you can remove most of the fat. I think you could do without the oil. I used kraft honey bbq sauce - just what I had on hand. SOOOO tasty. You can't stop eating this.

Fresh Broccoli Salad

Reviewed: Jun. 8, 2011
This was wonderful and delicious! I added more mayo because it seemed like not enough liquid, but after sitting overnight I wished I didn't! It makes it's own liquid. I waited to put the bacon in till right before serving so it wouldn't get soggy.

Slow-Cooker Chicken Tortilla Soup

Reviewed: Jun. 24, 2009
This is awesome!! I have to wonder why some of the reviewers who hate canned ingredients and sauce would even bother trying this recipe and then complaining. All I know is I like easy and I like delicious... and this recipe is both for sure! The flavor is great, the ingredients tasted fresh, and the amounts were perfect. Only changes I made were adding a can of black beans, using canned corn, and using frozen chicken breasts in the crock pot. I also used cooking spray for the tortilla strips to save a few calories. Perfect! I will keep this in my recipe box forever.

Cake Mix Cookies VI

Reviewed: Jul. 19, 2009
These were great! I love cake, so these were a beautiful combo of cake and cookie. Like a combo PB and choc. chip cookie. Everyone loved these at a recent camping trip and they stayed fabulous and fresh for days. These made about 40 cookies for me, and I didn't flatten the spoonfuls at all. I tried 10 and 12 min, and 12 minutes was definitely best. Perfectly done. Yum!! Also, I used white cake and you would never know the difference. What a great idea!! I imagine choc. cake would be great with the PB!

Fruit Dip VI

Reviewed: Aug. 19, 2009
This was so so tasty and really really easy. Two things I love! The brown sugar has a really distinct flavor. I didn't add the vanilla (didn't have any but I really don't think it made a difference) and mixed in some milk until it became the right consistency for dipping - probably about 1/3 or 1/2 cup. No one could believe this was so few ingredients! It is very sweet though - I served it with melon, watermelon, pineapple, strawberries and grapes, but I'd say it would probably be perfect with apples. Thanks for the recipe!

Awesome Slow Cooker Pot Roast

Reviewed: Sep. 30, 2009
This pot roast was the best I've ever made, and I've made quite a few! The meat was incredibly moist. It must be cooking in the gravy, rather than broth alone that gives it that juiciness. I made a 3.5 lb roast following the recipe exactly, and cooked on low for 8 hours. No need for changes - it's plenty good alone. Even sitting in the warm position for 4 more hours didn't dry it out. Then took the roast out and mixed 3 T of cornstarch with water and wisked it into the gravy, turned it on high for 15 minutes to thicken it up. My boyfriend fell asleep shortly after eating this, so I think it's safe to say it was an awesome meal.

Feta Cheese Ball

Reviewed: Nov. 4, 2009
This is a great cheese ball! I really thought it would be too wet when I was mixing it but it hardened up fine. I just put the mixture in a couple layers of saran wrap and shaped it that way. I only put in 3 T of oil and you could probably do with 1 or 2 - not sure it made much difference. I also only put in half the spice amounts and it was heavily spiced (and I like a LOT of herbs and spices)! It looked like it would be completely overwhelming with the whole amount. Also, I totally forgot the garlic - no biggie. Double the feta would have made it even better. Also, I made it a brick shape instead of a ball. After it hardened overnight, I rolled it in black sesame seeds and served it with the Townhouse Flipsides Pretzel Crackers (the best cracker discovery ever!). YUM!

Cajun-Style Catfish

Reviewed: Jun. 2, 2009
Wonderful! I was so nervous because I have never cooked fish on the stove before - always baked or broiled. The fish cooked perfectly, the butter spray worked like a charm, and the spice mixture was awesome. Beware, it is hot! Next time I will cut the pepper back a bit, but it was still good the way it was. The best part of this was that it was so healthy (no frying) and still managed to taste fried with the butter spray. No one would ever know the difference. Permanent Keeper!

Great Garlic Knots

Reviewed: Nov. 12, 2009
Great knots and I love cool shortcuts like this! Awesome way to spruce up regular store-bought dough. You could add all sorts of sprices to these - they would be pretty hard to mess up. I even made them with biscuit dough - you'd never know the difference.

Garlic Chicken

Reviewed: Dec. 30, 2009
Flavorful and SO easy! I will make again. I try to use a little less oil though - 1 teaspoon or so per chicken breast to keep the calories and fat down. Then just spread the garlic over that and then you won't waste any. I had 6 oz chicken breasts and only needed to bake 25 min.

Mexican Zucchini Cheese Soup

Reviewed: Jan. 10, 2010
This is fabulous healthy soup! I actually used one largish yellow squash, one largish zucchini, and one small bag of butternut squash. I also subbed 2% velveeta to save calories. Also, I ended up using 2 full cartons of chicken broth in this. I think it's best to just add the amount of broth you like and keep the other ingredient levels the same. It would have been a stew without the extra broth I added... maybe my veggies were bigger? I also added 2 heaping T of cornstarch mixed with water before adding the cheese - next time I will add even more cornstarch. It seems like a cream soup but no one can tell it's just broth, low fat cheese and cornstarch! love it!

Feta Chicken

Reviewed: Jan. 25, 2010
Great recipe! I added some diced roasted red peppers. Next time I'll try olives. I also just put salt, pepper and italian herbs on the inside of the chicken. Sprinkle the bread crumbs on the top of the breasts - don't bother with the bottom as they just get soggy. I sprayed with cooking spray to get a little crispiness and broiled for a minute or two at the end to brown the bread crumbs. Fabulous, easy and great use of feta!

Peking Pork Chops

Reviewed: Feb. 24, 2010
These chops had great flavor, but I think the recipe would benefit from thickening the sauce a little. Next time I make these, I will add a T of cornstarch mixed with some water to the sauce. That would help. Otherwise, I just browned them first with cooking spray because I prefer pork chops browned. They definitely have to be cooked for a minimum of 4 hours - I did 3 on low and they still weren't crock-pot tender.

Hudson's Baked Tilapia with Dill Sauce

Reviewed: Aug. 18, 2010
This is fantastic! Personally, I prefer my fish sauteed instead of baked (I use butter spray to keep it low fat). However, cajun seasoning plus that sauce is to die for! I also use low fat mayo and sour cream - tastes perfectly normal to me. My boyfriend wants this every week now. Thanks so much for this serious keeper!

Acorn Squash Soup

Reviewed: Oct. 25, 2010
This soup was sooo delicious. I made exactly as directed except with fat free evap milk and you would never know the difference. High recommended, flavorful and the spices were just right! 3 cups of squash was 1 acorn/danish squash for me. Cut in half, scoop out the seeds and microwave face down on a plate for 15 minutes. Then you can basically peel the skin off (easier than scooping the squash out because the skin is so soft).

Too Much Chocolate Cake

Reviewed: Jun. 8, 2011
Great recipe! Just follow it exactly, don't change it like all these people said. I even forgot to put the chips into the batter, and still yummy and super moist! The outside didn't get burned on mine, and was perfectly done after 45 minutes. I added a Duncan Hines vanilla glaze (in a bottle) to the top, and some mini chocolate chips. Going to try a red velvet version this weekend and put cream cheese frosting on it! UPDATE: made with red velvet cake mix, vanilla pudding (no choc chips) and a cream cheese frosting. TO DIE FOR. This is my forever cake recipe now! Thank you!

Burrito Pie

Reviewed: Dec. 2, 2009
This was tasty and filling. There are so many reviews on here you just don't know what to believe. I am watching my calories constantly, so figured I would try to make it without doubling up on tortillas as others suggested. They weren't soggy at all. In fact, I only used 9 flour tortillas - three per layer. I also only used 1 lb of beef and 1 can of refried beans - also perfectly fine. I used salsa instead of taco sauce, and 2% cheddar cheese. These changes basically halved the recipe and it made 8 servings in a 9x13. Will make again!

Pomegranate Stew with Chicken (Khoresh Fesenjan)

Reviewed: May 28, 2009
Althought it didn't taste like the fesenjan I get at my favorite restaurant, the flavor of this was excellent and the sauce was incredibly rich. I will definitely make this again. After reading other reviews, I subbed chicken broth for 2 cups of the pomegranate juice. However, I used POM juice and I think it is sweeter than what other people have been using. Next time I will use 4 cups of juice - no way it would have been too tangy. It needed more pomegranate flavor. Don't be afraid to use it all if you are using POM. Besides, you can always add sugar to sweeten it, but adding more juice would have made the sauce too thin. Also, the chicken cooked down so much, next time I will use 3-4 pounds of boneless skinless chicken thighs. Absolutely delicious and rich. What a keeper.

Pineapple Angel Food Cake I

Reviewed: Jun. 9, 2009
AMAZING. I would give this 10 stars if I could! I made this because I needed a healthy dessert for Weight Watchers, but diet or no diet, this is my new favorite dessert. The cake is so soft and fluffy and sweet - I never would have imagined it would come out so great! If you want, put a dollop of fat free cool whip on top, but it's definitely great alone as well. I made it in a 9x13 pan, which gave me about 12 servings.
