Slow Cooker Turkey Breast

Reviewed: Jul. 21, 2006
This is wonderful! I did not know you could cook turkey breast in a slow cooker like this. If you're like me, you'll probably be tempted to add stock or liquid to the meat -- DON'T! Believe me there'll be plenty of wonderful juices to make gravy from. If you just don't feel comfortable cooking it dry you can add about 1 Tbsp of melted butter (which is what I did) and you'll be totally happy with the result. Instead of using bone-in breast I used a piece of cut-off breast meat and it's still plenty yummy! Great for making sandwich or salad turkey meat. Try this recipe if you don't feel like turning on the oven and heating up the kitchen and potentially trying your bird.

Tomato Sausage Tart

Reviewed: Jun. 8, 2006
Got two pounds of tomatoes from the store on sale and just when I was thinking I might turn them into marinara sauce, this recipe came along. Boy am I glad I didn't make the marinara sauce because this pie rocks! I usually don't like tomatoes but I'm on my second helping right now. The recipe itself is so versatile, you can add and subtract ingredients to your liking. I added green pepper, substituted soy sausage and used half cheddar and half mozzarella. A definite 5-star recipe!

Whipping Cream Pound Cake

Reviewed: Apr. 7, 2006
This is a superb recipe -- with one catch. I more than halved the sugar and it's still "somewhat " sweeter than what we're used to. This is a great plain cake for frosting and decoration. Great recipe!

Mushroom Soup Without Cream

Reviewed: Feb. 12, 2006
This is a wonderful starter, clear mushroom soup for you to fiddle around with. I actually made mine "creamy" by substituting the chicken broth with 1/3 homemade beef broth and 2/3 potato water (the water you boil your potatoes in) and puree everything before returning the pureed soup to the stove for a slow simmer. Consistency of the soup is just what I'm looking in a creamy soup -- without the need for dairy or cornstarch. Also, I halved the amount of mushroom in the recipe since I didn't have that much on hand, and the mushroom flavor is still very pronounced. Can't wait to use this in the Awesome Slow Cooker Pot Roast recipe on this site!

Watercress Soup

Reviewed: Feb. 6, 2006
I was looking for a non-salad recipe so I could use up that bunch of watercress and this one is a winner! I substituted potatoes water for milk (didn't have any on hand) & added cornstarch as a thickener & love it! I'll be making this over & over again.

Awesome Slow Cooker Pot Roast

Reviewed: Sep. 3, 2005
Used beef shank to make this and it was simply wonderful. Leave the roast in the refrigerator overnight and the flavor gets even better. Used the meat in breakfast scramble & dinner pasta and hubby loves it. I did use beef broth instead of water.

Spring Biscotti

Reviewed: Jul. 6, 2003
Excellent biscotti! I have never made biscotti before but was pleasantly surprised to find out how easy the recipe was. Not only are these better than store-bought ones (which always tend to be a little harder than I like), they're also a lot cheaper too! This is an absolutely delightful snack that I will keep as a staple in my kitchen. The only difficulty I encounter was cutting the log since the center part tend to crumble & break (even with a very sharp knife); I also went ahead & spread some melted chocolate on the flat side of the biscotti to give it more of a flavor. These are definitely keepers!

White Chocolate Chip Oatmeal Cookies

Reviewed: Jun. 29, 2003
A definite winner! To a cookie novice like me this recipe is simple yet failproof enough to yield a batch of impressive cookies that rival store-bought ones. I have even made a couple w/o the white morsels and they're still terrific. Not to mention, the cookie dough is great too (smells just like Haagan-Daaz butter pecan ice cream...yumm) However, I did let the dough rest in the refrigerator for 45 minutes before I shape them out on the cookie sheet. Thanks for sharing this wonderful recipe!

Butter Tart Muffins

Reviewed: Jun. 22, 2003
I know I have written review for this recipe before, but since then I have made at least three more batches & I found that the longer you leave these in the oven, the more flavorful & less eggy they before (I left them in the oven for 30 min once by accident, & they actually turned out very well). Now I tend to bake them for at least 25 min instead of 15 to 17.

Fluffy Canadian Pancakes

Reviewed: Jun. 17, 2003
I finished making these pancakes two minutes ago and I just had to write this review right now. They are great! I was never able to make truely "fluffy" pancakes until I came across this recipe. I had tried another pancake recipe on this site (the one with the most rav reviews) but they turned out doughy & very rubbery. However, I did add some sugar to the batter & used only one egg yolk & two egg white. I might consider adding some melted butter next time too. But overall, the best pancake recipe I have ever tried!
