Slow Cooker Tomato Sauce

Reviewed: Nov. 26, 2011
I think this is a good recipe; however, I think it does need to be cooked for 15 hours if cooking on a low setting in a crock pot in order to get a nice sauce. Otherwise, it looks more like salsa (too chunky). I diced my tomatoes instead of crushing them, and this allowed for some nice small chunks after they cooked. This is a nice chunky sauce, by the liquid part was a bit thin, so I added a can of tomato paste to bolster the consistency. I also added a pound of ground beef to make it a little heartier and more savory. Nice seasoning suggestions in this recipe, and the flavor and texture really does come out the longer it cooks.

The Best Double Chocolate Chip Cookie

Reviewed: Nov. 24, 2011
Overall, I think this is a pretty good recipe. I added some extra cocoa because I thought the cookies in the picture looked kind of light and I wanted a really rich, really chocolately cookie. My first batch of cookies turned out perfectly--soft, rose nicely--but my second batch flattened out and got burnt on the edges, even though they cooked for the same time. The third batch I did turned out pretty good, but not as good as the first. This might be due, in part, to the fact that I used butter instead of margarine. I also added cinnamon and cayenne pepper to make the cookies taste more like homemade hot chocolate. Tasty cookies, but a bit unpredictable.
