Easy Broccoli Slaw Salad

Reviewed: Oct. 6, 2013
Used this recipe as a guide and made the following adjustments: Trader Joe's Broccoli Slaw mix, 12 oz bag; no sugar in the dressing, no ramen or ramen seasoning, instead I used Trader Joe's everyday seasoning mix, instead of almonds I used sunflower seeds and also left out onions & green peppers. Turned out great although the dressing to slaw ratio was a little off (probably b/c I left out so many things), it was a little more 'wet' than I usually prefer. I would definitely make this again!

Zesty Slow Cooker Chicken Barbecue

Reviewed: Oct. 6, 2013
Turned out great, although I had to make the following adjustments based on what I had on hand. For sauce I used 2 Fat Guys BBQ sauce - approx 8 oz, Trader Joe's Caesar Parmesan dressing - approx 1/4 cup, 1 tsp brown sugar. Chopped up garlic and put that on the chicken, then poured the sauce mix over it. Used 4 thawed chicken breasts, cooked on low for 1 hour, high for 3 more, shredded the chicken, added the rest of the jar of the 2 fat guys bbq sauce, and cooked 1 more hour on low. (BTW, shredding the chicken made a world of difference, it soaked up all the watery sauce and adding the extra sauce gave the perfect ratio of meat to sauce) Everyone loved it!

Easy Meatloaf

Reviewed: Feb. 13, 2012
This was good (for a very basic meatloaf) and hubby loved it but I do agree, there isn't quite enough sauce, hence the 4 star rating. Since I was just making for 2 ppl and only had just under 1lb 90% lean ground beef, I had to modify the recipe a bit. I set the servings to 5 and used those quantities listed (except still used 1 whole egg). I would've loved to try adding Worcestershire sauce but didn't have any in the house. I didn't have breadcrumbs so I used crumbled crackers (the equivalent of about 8 'social crackers'). I also sauteed the onion a bit along with a large clove of garlic. Still baked it for an hour and it came out perfectly cooked. Next time I'll make more sauce on the side to ladle over individual servings.
