Slow Cooker Parsley Chicken

Reviewed: Jan. 22, 2012
I used chicken tenders, added 2 carrots, white potatoes instead of red, 1/4 cup sor and 1/4 cup water to lesson the sodium, left out the extra salt, and fat free cream cheese, I added only 2 table spoons butter as well.

Peking Pork Chops

Reviewed: Jan. 21, 2012
I am changing the recipe a bit and using fresh grated ginger instead of powder and adding a bit of hoisin sauce (ethnic isle in the market) and lowering the amount of soy sauce used.

Slow Cooker Mongolian Beef

Reviewed: Jan. 21, 2012
This turned out AMAZING! I will not order out for this ever again, though I may change the cut of beef...not sure yet. I have made a few changes to the recipe, but nothing major. I am adding 1/2 can of baby corn and 1 can oriental mushrooms. I am using low sodium soy instead of regular. I am also lowering the amount of brown sugar (not by much though). I grate the ginger instead of mince it so it incorporates into the sauce better. I'm not a huge fan of green onions, but they turned out well, though I cooked them in the pan with the oil before adding the beef and left them in while it cooked. Oh, I didn't use a whole 1/2 cup of hoisin sauce either. I dropped that to about 1/4 cup.

Chocolate Rum Balls I

Reviewed: Dec. 24, 2011
These are ok, but I used brownies instead of cookies and a few crushed up graham crackers in my first batch and they turned out much better. I also found that I needed to add more bourbon (especially since I just used a whole box of nilla wafers and didn't measure) however, the taste is just not as good as the brownie version I made. I recommend using more bourbon than called for anyway. They just turn out better. Also, mixing cocoa powder into the powdered sugar is awesome too when you roll them in it! I also don't put nuts in mine b/c I'm allergic. So, I add crushed graham cracker to substitute.

Chewy Caramel

Reviewed: Dec. 22, 2011
Definitely follow all the directions!!! It takes a very long time (around 20 min of continuous boiling) for this to come out perfect! Oh, make sure you grease your scissors with butter before you cut the caramel and DO use the scissors b/c a knife just doesn't work!!!!! Awesome results! I used dark brown sugar and it came out perfect!

Buckeyes I

Reviewed: Dec. 22, 2011
I used 2 cups of peanut butter. I also added 1 recipe of failed unset caramel candy goop to the mixture and they are fabulous! I had to play with the mixture to get it perfect but it rolled well and was not supper sticky as most people said. Use mini chocolate morsels as they melt much faster and smoother than the others. Keep the heat on low so it doesn't dry out or over cook the chocolate.
