Italian Style Turkey Meatloaf

Reviewed: Aug. 31, 2014
Delicious! I doubled the recipe so we would have plenty left for sandwiches. I added more garlic than the recipe called for and may add some other herbs and maybe even some chopped green chile. I'm not sure how other people's was mushy - mine came out perfectly firm. Definitely a keeper.

Savory Garlic Marinated Steaks

Reviewed: Aug. 8, 2014
The only thing I changed on the recipe was that I used agave nectar rather than honey. I had 4 good sized rib-eyes so I doubled the recipe and marinated the steaks in a 9x13 glass baking pan. I cooked the 2 of the steaks the same day after marinating them for about 8 hours and they were really good. I decided to cook the other 2 the next evening (steak 2 nights in a row... yay!); after marinating for over 30 hours let me just say that those steaks were even MORE delicious than the ones from the night before! Great recipe!

Reviewed: Aug. 2, 2012
Quality balsamic is the key, let the sauce reduce and it becomes very tasty.

Yellow Squash Casserole

Reviewed: Aug. 28, 2011
Really good but just by reading the recipe, I knew it was going to need something extra. I added chopped red pepper and diced garlic. I also added a bit more cheese to the the topping. It came out great! Served with homemade New Mexico red chile sauce ladled over it! Yum!

Slow Cooker Pork Chops II

Reviewed: Jan. 5, 2010
This was really good. I cut the olive oil in 1/2 as other suggested and substituted crushed red pepper flakes for the paprika. I also sliced an onion laid the chops on top of them and also on top for more flavor. I used boneless pork chops and the meat was fork tender with a really savory flavor.

Oven Pot Roast

Reviewed: Apr. 26, 2009
Great recipe! I added garlic powder, paprika, and a little salt to the flour/pepper mixture (the flour is extremely important in this recipe). I tried this before and used red wine rather than vermouth.... this time, I used vermouth. Rather than oven roasting, I opted to put it in the slow cooker after searing (4 hours on high). I placed sliced onions under and over the roast before pouring the soup mixture on top and after 3 hours, I added baby carrots); it gave the roast a really nice flavor. I think I like the "vermouth" version best! Served with roasted potatoes. YUM!

Lazygirl's Ground Turkey Stroganoff

This was good but not great; easy recipe if you don't have time to put time and effort into a dish. I took other's advice and added fresh mushrooms.

Molly's Chicken

Reviewed: Apr. 7, 2009
Very, very good! I actually added some sriracha hot sauce to the mix and oooooooo it really gave it some kick! Sweet, savory, and spicy all together in one dish... yum! Took the advice of others and used low sodium soy sauce. I also used chicken breasts and baked them rather than using the slow cooker. Since the breasts were large, I doubled the recipe (but not the soy sauce) to fully cover them with sauce in an 8" square baking dish. I served everything over brown rice and a side of fresh green beans. Will make this again!

Sirloin Tips and Mushrooms

Reviewed: Apr. 6, 2009
Delicious! I gave it 4 stars because it really needs more seasonings than indicated and I felt like I had to deviate a bit to ensure the dish was full-flavored. I diced and sauteed 1 small onion with the meat. I also used fresh mushrooms and sauteed them separately in olive oil and a bit of the red wine. Because I used more beef than specified, I mixed all the "sauce stuff" (to which I also added 2 tbsp of brown sugar) into the sauteed mushrooms and poured it into the skillet with the beef and onions.. this made it a lot easier to work with. Like others, I felt the sauce needed to be thickened. I mixed about a 1/2 cup of water with some cornstarch and poured it slowly into the skillet the last 15 minutes of cooking. This was soooooo good served over brown rice and with buscuits (gotta sop up that sauce!).

Chicken with Asparagus and Roasted Red Peppers

Reviewed: Mar. 30, 2009
Absolutely delicious. I forgot to pick up fresh tomatoes so I opted for a small can of diced tomatoes. I sauteed some onions and mushrooms in Smart Balance spread (rather than butter) and balsamic vinegar and served them on the side, but we ended up mixing everything together so I may add directly into the mix next time. Sauce is very flavorful but thin. Everything (including a few spoons of the the sauce served on top of brown rice... well, what else can I say except... YUM!

Dijon Pork Chops

Reviewed: Mar. 12, 2009
Very good recipe. I added some garlic powder and black pepper to the seasoned bread crumbs. I followed another person's suggestion and sprayed some olive oil cooking spray on the baking dish and also on top of the chops. They came out great! Served on top of seasoned brown rice. Will definitely make again.

Slow Cooker Chicken and Dumplings

Reviewed: Jan. 4, 2009
OK, so I took this recipe and deviated a bit because of time and also because I was concerned about the "liquidy" dumplings. I was also concerned that it might be bland so I mixed in some different herbs and spices to the soup (I was using the Healthy Request version). I didn't have 5-6 hours to slow cook everything so I slow cooked for 2.5 hrs and then took the actual crock out of the cooking piece of the crockpot, added a bag of frozen veggies to the mix, tightly covered it with foil, and baked it in a preheated 350 degree oven for 30 minutes. Once done, my family asked if I would cut the chicken into bite-sized pieces (kind of messy - next time, I'll just cut up the chicken before cooking). I then baked the refigerated biscuits separately. My family really liked it and said it was kind of a buffet-style chicken pot pie. I'll definitely be making this again (my way since it was so good).

Pork Chops a la Slow Cooker

Reviewed: Nov. 23, 2008
I prepared this yesterday and it turned out very well. I forgot to buy dry mustard so I used honey mustard to coat the chops before dredging them in the the flour (which I seasoned with garlic and onion powder). The chops came out tender and the sauce was great. I actually poured it into a sauce pan and added a little cornstarch (1 tbsp mixed with 1/4 cup water) and reduced it a bit more before serving. We used it as gravy on our mashed potatoes. I will be preparing again soon.

Baked Teriyaki Chicken

Reviewed: Sep. 17, 2008
All I can say is, "YUM!" I took the advice of others and doubled the recipe. I substituted brown sugar for the white sugar and used white wine vinegar (didn't have any cider vinegar on hand). I also covered the chicken with foil for the first 30 minutes and uncovered it for the last 20-25 minutes of baking. I served it with stir fry veggies and rice.

Rump Roast Au Jus

Reviewed: Sep. 8, 2008
I didn't have all the "rub" spices called for in the original recipe, so I toyed with a few that I had on hand. I also added a packet of onion mushroom soup mix to the rub mixture. Rather than water, I used 2 cups of beef stock. I also quartered a large onion, laid the quarters on the bottom of the crock pot, and placed the roast on top. I followed other people's advice and turned the roast over a few times in the 8 hours cooking time. The au-jus came out wonderfully and the roast was juicy and flavorful. Will definitely make again.

Chicken Breasts with Balsamic Vinegar and Garlic

Reviewed: Aug. 30, 2008
Very good recipe. Added a bit more chicken stock and 1 tbsp cornstarch dissolved in @ 1/4 cup water. This made the balsamic reduction more flavorful and a tad bit thicker. We not only put the sauce and mushrooms over the chicken, but on top of the side of mashed potatoes. Will definitely make again.

Savory Chicken Breasts

Reviewed: Jul. 31, 2008
This dish was awesome! I lightened it up by using Campbells's Healthy Cream of Chicken Soup, 1% milk, Smart Balance Light (instead of butter) and reduced fat swiss cheese. I used some garlic and herbs in the soup mixture... YUMMY! So easy... I will definitely make again.

Easy Caramelized Onion Pork Chops

This was just "ok" for my family. I thought the pork chops were a bit bland. Good concept but just did cut it for us.
