Slow-Cooked Meat Loaf

Reviewed: Apr. 29, 2012
This came out great! Followed recipe to a tee for 4 servings w/ a few substitutions: used 1.3 lb ground pork instead of beef & Trader Joe's Masala Simmer Sauce instead of ketchup. Added parsley, granulated garlic, minced onion, creole seasoning & half way through added some water to the veggies, about 1/2 - 1 c, also topped off meatloaf w/ 2 more tablespoons of Masala sauce. Cooked 2 hours high & 6 hours low. Super moist even after 5 hours on low but wanted it cooked a bit more so kept on low for another hour. Potatoes & carrots came out great, too. Nice sauce. No joke - this barely cost $5 to make. Other than ground pork, $2.34 ($1.79/lb), & red potatoes, 5 lb bag $2.99 & only used 3 potatoes, I had everything stocked in kitchen/fridge. For pricing perspective, I live in north shore Massachusetts

Lighter Banana Muffins

Reviewed: Mar. 18, 2012
Nice w/tea or coffee. Converted recipe for 1/2 doz, followed it & added 1/3c walnuts. Used pastel baking cups; the very bottom stuck a bit but using a butter knife to help you remove the muffin from the cup will keep the muffin intact. Defintely make these again, may add chocolate chips & or applesauce next time. Excluding the walnuts, 1 muffin is 5 WW P+.

Hoisin (but not really) Country Ribs

Reviewed: Mar. 15, 2012
I made this over night, 9PM - 6AM. This morning I woke up to a very aromatic home. This is a super easy & tasty recipe. I used 2.6 lbs of country style ribs (on sale $1.79/lb) & adjusted the recipe accordingly. Prior to browning the ribs, I cut off much of the fat but left enough for flavor. Then I browned the ribs in olive oil, about 2-3 minutes total. I used olive oil only because I have it in the house & didn’t want to buy peanut oil that I know I’ll hardly ever use; not sure if it really makes a difference. I couldn’t find shitake mushrooms so just bought a 4 oz can for slice mushrooms; not sure if that makes a difference either. Also used 1 Tbs dried minced onion. I incorporated the suggestions of reviewer "naples34102"' & used low sodium rice wine, low sodium soy sauce & fresh garlic clove that I minced. I agree with naples34102's comment about the sauce; all in all it's really a personal preference. Instead of 15 oz can tomato sauce, I used 6 oz of store bought jarred garlic & basil marinara that I had in my fridge & 8 oz hoisin sauce. Looking forward to enjoying it tonight for dinner! Of course I did bring a bit to the office as a lunch appetizer! For those living in Boston’s north shore, it will cost you about $11 - $12 to make this recipe.

Slow Cooker Taco Soup

Reviewed: Feb. 12, 2012
Easy recipe. Made this last night. Used 1/2 lb ground turkey & 2 oz diced green chile peppers. Accidentally used 3 c water. Still came out great! Next time will use 4 oz chili peppers & a bit more ground turkey. Looking forward to having it for lunch at work.
