Pepperoncini Beef

Reviewed: Aug. 27, 2011
I have seen this recipe reviewed many times and always resisted because I really do not like pepperoncini. However I was looking for something different to make and since DH loves pepperoncini I decided to give this a go. I used a rump roast and since we had a jar of mild sliced banana peppers, used them. This has made me a believer. It does not taste at all like I thought it would, it is wonderful! Some other reviewer said it tasted similar to sauerbraten and I have to agree. I will be making this again.

Pammy's Slow Cooker Beans

Reviewed: Aug. 25, 2011
These are awesome! Followed the recipe almost exactly. I did cut it in half, used a ham hock, and had to add garlic salt AFTER the beans got soft because I had very little garlic powder. I will be making these again.

Baked Slow Cooker Chicken

Reviewed: Aug. 11, 2011
I did what others before me have done and put onion, potatoes, and carrots in the bottom of the crockpot and then put the chicken on that. I had stuffed the cavity with fresh rosemary, onion and garlic. On top I sprinkled Paula Deen's House Seasoning and then drizzled with a little olive oil. The chicken cooked on high for one hour and then on low for about 5 hours and was done. It is not a roast chicken like out of the oven but it was suitable for my needs which was just cooked chicken for other recipes. I was surprised to find that the pot was filled with the juices by the time it was done too. We will get several meals out of this one effort. Thanks!

Soft Onion Sandwich Rolls

Reviewed: Aug. 10, 2011
Delicious, soft and oniony. I realize looking back at the recipe now that the rolls are out of the oven that I neglected to put the potato flakes in. I don't know what difference that would make because they are wonderful! I doubled the onion powder because I really wanted an onion taste, used 1 cup of whole wheat flour in place of the ap, making by hand I probably only used 2 1/2 cups of flour total. I soaked some dried minced onion in a little hot water to put on top before baking. These will make wonderful fresh tomato sandwiches! Thanks!

Reviewed: Aug. 9, 2011
I used about 1/4 c cornstarch instead of flour and the filling was just the right consistency. Yummy!

Kathleen’s Parmesan Peppercorn Bread

Reviewed: Aug. 8, 2011
I've had this on my "want to try" list for a long time and now I'm sorry I waited so long. I had some rosemary flavored asiago cheese that needed to be used up so I put it in instead of the Parmesan. I subbed one cup of whole wheat flour for the ap flour and added a teaspoon of vital wheat gluten. I flattened the once risen dough ball into a rectangle and sprinkled the shredded cheese over and then rolled it into a loaf. The bread is wonderful and if it makes it to dinner will be delicious as part of a fresh tomato sandwich. Thanks Kathleen!

Ultra Creamy Mashed Potatoes from Swanson®

Reviewed: Nov. 14, 2012
I cut the recipe in half using two decent sized Russet potatoes. Overall the potatoes were good and I could taste the broth in them. I did have to add salt. I saved the remaining broth and made gravy. I probably will do this again but I don't make mashed potatoes very often.

Salsa Roja

Reviewed: Aug. 1, 2011
Excellent! I used two jalapenos because it is what I had and I removed all membrane and seeds, consequently the salsa had very little heat. I will adjust next time. I didn't measure the cilantro but I had about half a bunch to use and used about half of it. All of us here loved the salsa. Thanks for sharing Don!

Fresh Ginger Cookies

Reviewed: Jul. 29, 2011
These are definitely as advertised being between a molasses cookie and a gingersnap both of which I've made. I was wanting to make gingersnaps but had fresh ginger to use so I went with this recipe. I have to admit they aren't what I was looking for but that is my fault not that of the cookies. They taste almost a little bitter to me. I got 41 cookies out of the batch and baked them for 12 minutes which almost had them burnt. The cookies are edible but the jury is out on whether I'd make them again. Thanks for the recipe though and I'm glad to venture out of my comfort zone.

Pollo Oaxaca

Reviewed: Jul. 28, 2011
This was a pleasant surprise for me. I really don't enjoy chicken in Mexican food but I decided to jump in and try this even if the Hubs was the only one to eat it. I have never worked with tomatillos before but have a Hispanic produce stand readily available and they weren't too hard to come by. Too bad they don't carry the cheese because I absolutely could not find the Oaxacan Cheese. Anyway I loved this dish! The best part of it is the contrast between the cooked and fresh verde mole. I used a shredded Mexican blend cheese and halved the recipe with 3 chicken tenderloins. There was more than enough verde mole for that much chicken and probably will be enjoyed on chips. Hubs said it is a keeper! Thanks Avon for the recipe and for opening my eyes to what I might have missed out on!

Easy Focaccia

Reviewed: Jul. 27, 2011
Excellent! I used active dry yeast which I proofed in the warm water and 1 t of sugar before adding to dry ingredients and remaining 2 t of sugar. I also sprinkled with garlic salt in addition to the Parmesan and rosemary before baking. This is delish! I cannot stop eating it! Thanks Jaclyn for this easy and wonderful recipe.

Old Fashioned Scalloped Tomatoes

Reviewed: Nov. 14, 2012
I had a quart of home canned tomatoes that did not seal so I needed a recipe to use them. I remember my mother making scalloped tomatoes so decided to give this a try. I added a shake of dried basil and about 1/4 cup of feta cheese. DH gave it a thumbs up! Thanks!

Baked Stuffed Apple

Reviewed: Nov. 18, 2012
I made this at the last minute for our late Sunday afternoon lunch. I used two small softball sized Fuji apples. I followed the recipe exactly except I halved the sugar mixture (didn't sprinkle the inside of the apples or the top of the cream cheese mixture) and I eyeballed the amount of cream cheese. We really enjoyed this baked apple. Next time I will score the apple peel because it broke and peeled away anyway. I will also add some finely chopped nuts next time. Thanks!

Garlic Mustard Ham Slice

Reviewed: Jul. 22, 2011
I used this to fix a small (probably half pound) ham slice. Normally I just heat them in a fry pan but decided to do something different. I could not bring myself to use milk especially after reading the reviews about curdled milk. So I used water instead. The result was good. Maybe next time I'll use chicken or beef broth.

Parmesan Tomatoes

Reviewed: Jul. 22, 2011
Husband said they were really good and would like to have them again. I don't eat cooked tomatoes so I can't give my opinion. I made as instructed except scaled it down to one tomato and didn't add any fresh parsley.

Black Bean and Corn Quesadillas

Reviewed: Jul. 19, 2011
I loved this! I love black beans and corn together and I've never really made quesadillas before. I used my own frozen corn, and eyeballed the amount. I used multigrain tortillas but otherwise made them as instructed. I liked the sweetness and the spicy came through too. I will keep the filling in the refrigerator so I can make these for lunch a few more days! Thanks! Minor update: it is now the next day and I had refrigerated the leftover filling. Today I only used one tortilla, filled half with cheese and the filling and folded it over, then put it in the oven at 350 degrees for about 10 minutes. Just as good as yesterday when I made it as instructed!

Barb's Fried Green Tomatoes with Zesty Sauce

Reviewed: Jul. 18, 2011
This is my first attempt at making fried green tomatoes myself and I thought it went well. They were tasty. I used canola oil instead of the shortening to fry but followed the directions for the coating to the T. I did not make the sauce as we already had one made that we wanted to use. I will use this again! Thanks!
