Slow Cooker Chicken Stroganoff

Reviewed: Apr. 18, 2011
This was really good! I added some white wine as suggested, and also put in some sliced portobello and white mushrooms I had left over in my fridge. I added the mushrooms shortly before the last stage, so that they were soft and tasty but not overcooked. This was excellent over some egg noodles. My husband ate this right up!

Chicken-Fried Chops

Reviewed: Apr. 14, 2011
This was AMAZINGLY good. I made the mistake of using pork chops with bones, however--it was annoying to have to fish out all the bones from the fall-apart tender meat. My mistake though, not the recipe. It IS important to have boneless chops!

All Day Apple Butter

Reviewed: Mar. 2, 2011
This was AMAZING. Addictive, actually. The only annoying part is the prep. If you don't have tools that make the breakdown easy, it's a long, slow, tortuous process to peel and core and cut the apples. The end result, however, was completely worth it.

Garlic Chicken Stir Fry

Reviewed: Mar. 1, 2011
Very yummy. I reduced the ginger, since my fiance is not fond of it, and will reduce the amount of chicken next time since it seemed a bit much--but that's our taste.

Southern Yank Pulled Pork BBQ

Reviewed: Mar. 1, 2011
This was awesome, but it isn't a recipe that can handle a full day's cooking while you're at work. I'll be reserving it for weekends when I can cook it for a shorter time period and keep an eye on it to prevent burning.

Slow Cooker Beef Stew IV

Reviewed: Feb. 3, 2011
SO good. I kept to the recipe, simply following suggestions to use yellow potatoes and merlot. I also used garlic pepper on the meat while browning it. I didn't bother to thicken the stew at the end, since it was plenty thick enough for my family's taste. We loved it and will be making this again.

Slow Cooker Chicken and Dumplings

Reviewed: Apr. 18, 2010
With the alterations suggested by other people, this was EXCELLENT. I do recommend reducing the amount of biscuit dough, for certain. I used 2/3 of what was recommended and still needed less. The spicing is a must.

Millet Delight

Reviewed: Apr. 23, 2008
So tasty, easy to make, and easy to adapt! My sons are allergic to soy and cow's milk, as well as coconut, so I had to tweak this--but it was super easy. I just used some goat's milk as a portion of the hot water amount (I think I had about 1/2 to 3/4 cups left in the carton that I used). Then instead of coconut I put in the same amount of dried blueberries. They rehydrated nicely while baking and gave a lovely fruity flavor to the cereal! The nice thing is that the dates (and the blueberries) give this all the sweetness it needs, so there's no need to add all sorts of sugar. I'll be making this again, and I'll probably experiment with other kinds of dried fruits as well.

Tangy Slow Cooker Pork Roast

Reviewed: Feb. 17, 2008
This was the best slow cooker pork recipe I've ever tasted--possibly the best pork "roast" recipe too! I used a large pork tenderloin I had in my freezer. I added the potatoes and carrots as other reviewers recommended and also salted/peppered the loin and seared it before putting it in. Otherwise I followed the recipe as is, and it didn't need any other tweaking. I served it on top of a tomato lentil couscous boxed mix, which soaked up the juice nicely. My husband and I both cleared our plates completely, and he even commented that it didn't need salt or anything added! I may never use another pork slow cooker recipe besides this one again...

Salmon with Dill

Reviewed: Feb. 17, 2008
Fantastic, very easy recipe. I couldn't find my onion powder, so I used some garlic powder and dried onion flakes instead, which worked well. It was a moist, delicately flavored dish that absolutely hit the spot. My husband, who loves salmon but is picky about how it's prepared, said this was delicious!

Basic Beef Stock

Reviewed: Feb. 10, 2008
Marvelous! Such a wonderful, easy thing to make. I left out the parsnips, because I never buy such things, as well as the tomato and garlic (because my son is allergic, sigh). I also, on the recommendation of my butcher, tossed in a couple of nice short ribs to add extra flavor, and I added about a teaspoon of paprika to give some of the punch that garlic would have given it. I used potato peelings instead of the potato flesh and roasted the bones/ribs/carrots/onions for a little over an hour at 400 degrees. I also let it simmer for a good bit longer than 5 hours to let it reduce. A wonderful result, and the house smelled amazing all day!

Marshmallow Treats

Reviewed: Oct. 20, 2007
Since my son is allergic to rice, milk, and peanuts (among many other things), I used this as the base for an alternative recipe. I used a dairy- and soy- free margarine, marshmallows, puffed millet, and sunbutter (sunflower butter--tastes like a mild peanut butter mixed with honey). The result was excellent! The millet and sunbutter actually cut the syrupy sweetness of the marshmallows and create a mellow, tasty treat that my 23-month-old gobbles like candy!

Honey Mustard Grilled Chicken

Reviewed: Jul. 22, 2007
Excellent and very juicy! My only changes to the recipe were cutting down a bit on the mayo and increasing the steak sauce. Got rave reviews! And I did NOT have to pound the breasts flat at all--which tends to dry them out for grilling anyways--even though they were big, thick breasts. I tripled the sauce for dipping and such, but had leftovers--may use it up by baking some small chicken breasts in it. Great with corn on the cob and a salad!

Yummy Honey Chicken Kabobs

Reviewed: Jul. 4, 2007
So, so, so good! I used both red and yellow peppers, since I had both on hand, and used chopped garlic from a jar instead of the garlic cloves. They ended up marinating for 24 hours because my husband had to work late the night I was intending to cook them, and they were incredibly tasty. I also added cherry tomatoes to the kabobs, but I didn't marinate those--they won't stand up to it.

Fragrant Lemon Chicken

Reviewed: Dec. 30, 2006
I didn't have fresh lemon, so I just poured some lemon juice over the top instead, but it worked very well. This was very mild in flavor, but so moist and tender it fell off the bones! There was a LOT of juice and meat left in the crockpot afterwards, so I plan to use that to make a tasty lemon rice chicken soup.

Homestyle Turkey, the Michigander Way

Reviewed: Dec. 30, 2006
Very tasty and stayed moist around the breast, even though I left it in too long. The butter in the skin pockets makes a definite difference.

Russian Mushroom and Potato Soup

Yum yum yum! Even my husband liked this, and he isn't a soup person!

Grandma's Corn Bread Dressing

Reviewed: Dec. 30, 2006
I thought this was rather bland and nowhere as good as the Joy of Cooking regular bread stuffing I've done, but my husband, his mother, and his sister all preferred it. I guess it's just a matter of different tastes.

Baked Potato Casserole

Reviewed: Dec. 30, 2006
Fabulous! I made this for my husband's extended family Christmas party, and he was nervous because I was "going up against" years of his aunt's famous cheesy potatoes. Not only did it get rave reviews, that same aunt told me that several people said it was the best potato casserole they'd had! I used 2/3 lb turkey bacon, and it was excellent. I also used light mayo and sour cream despite the warning, and it turned out just fine. I steamed the potatoes rather than boiling, so they weren't soggy and were evenly cooked. I had worried that perhaps I shouldn't have cooked them completely before cubing them, since they would be baking so long, but it turns out they needed to be fully cooked, as I believe they would be too crunchy and dry otherwise. One warning: the estimated time of preparation is very deceiving, since the recipe assumes you've already cooked and prepared both your potatoes and bacon. I fortunately anticipated this and gave myself plenty of time to prepare. Depending on how you prepare your potatoes and whether or not you have to fry and crumble/cut up your bacon (rather than using pre-cooked and crumbled bacon off the shelf), you'll be facing quite a bit of preparation time before this recipe begins--as much as a couple of hours depending on distractions. I wouldn't consider doing this recipe as a regular side dish. It's definitely a special occasion recipe.

Nacho Chicken Casserole

Reviewed: Dec. 30, 2006
This was fairly good and a decent way to use up some leftover chicken, but wasn't nearly as delicious as I expected. I think it needs more chips and perhaps a touch of picante sauce or something.
