Easy Slow Cooker Sweet and Sour Pork Chops

Reviewed: Dec. 13, 2011
Nice flavor and very easy. I used more chopped onions, added fresh pressed garlic, added a "glob of peach preserves, substituted apple cider vinegar for the lemon, and added bell pepper chunks and sliced canned pineapple (both near the end). I thickened the sauce to use as gravy over rice. Next time I will cut the onions in big chunks and add red food coloring for a more traditional looking dish. I love the ease of using a crock pot. I will make this often. Thanks.

Lemony Chicken with Artichoke Hearts

Reviewed: Aug. 7, 2011
Totally GREAT. I cooked my chicken in the George Foreman, and made the sauce in the pan. I added mushrooms (should have added onion, darn!) and capers. I did not add the Bay Leaf. I mixed the pasta with the sauce and added lots of shredded Swiss Cheese. OHHHHHH, so gooooood. Thank you!!!!! I cannot wait to make this again.

Slow Cooker Au Jus Pot Roast

Reviewed: Nov. 12, 2012
I made this for company. I doubled the amount of coffee, a mistake, but was OK because we like lots of gravy. I thickened the sauce with cornstarch. I love Montreal Steak seasoning and it's a staple in my house. I will be making this many times over.

My Mom's Chicken Cacciatore

Reviewed: Sep. 4, 2011
Totally yummy. I used Marsala Wine instead of Brandy (didn't have any) and bone-in thighs. Research on the Internet recommended the Marsala as a substitute. I have not made Chicken Cacciatore in YEARS but this recipe will change that. BTW, I mixed together the liquid ingredients the day before and stored in the refrigerator. They really bonded!! Thanks.

Ratatouille

Reviewed: Aug. 16, 2011
Great ingredients ..... especially the sauted garlic and eggplant. Did that, as given but used much more garlic!! I made the following major change ... mixed the remaining ingredients (except for the tomatoes), LIGHTLY sauted them, layered then in thirds, about 1 cup each, adding tomatoes, cheese, white wine, and basil between layers. I used more cheese on top. I reduced the baking time to 30 minutes = perfect outcome. The vegetables were not overcooked. I RARELY alter the original recipe the first time but think the ingredients look better with a little more color from sauting. I will make this on a regular basis. Thank you for the healthy, meatless dish!!

Easiest BBQ Pork Chops

Reviewed: Mar. 8, 2010
My husband and I are divided on the rating, thus a 3 star. I loved it. So flavorful, easy, etc. I added a can of drained corn WHICH IS MY HUSBAND'S FAVORITE VEGETABLE and he still rated it "barely a 1". He loves all of the ingredients but together, they do nothing for him. I am happy to have the leftovers!! Ha. Ha.

The Best Unbaked Cherry Cheesecake Ever

Reviewed: Jan. 19, 2011
For years, I have been making something very similar. I use a regular baked pie shell and only 1/2 C powdered sugar. I got the recipe from a friend's family recipe collection. It makes a refreshing dessert in the summertime plus it's my husband's birthday dessert.

Breaded and Baked Zucchini

Reviewed: May 14, 2012
I loved the concept .... I made the recipe as given, using Greek Salad Dressing instead of Italian. It was really good but needs tweeting. The zucchini was cooked perfectly. I think I need more color of the bread crumbs when cooked. I loved the faint mustard taste. I had to use plain GF bread crumbs so next time I will add some cheese, basil, or oregano, etc. Just having something breaded that is so good when we are avoiding gluten is a BIG PLUS. Thank you.

Best Ever Shrimp Dip

Reviewed: Jul. 3, 2010
I used 3/4 C. mayo, added about 1 tsp. lemon juice, and some dried chives. Honestly, it needed some color! Next time I will add Old Bay. Yum. Everyone loved it with crackers, sesame sticks and pretzels. Easy and great appetizer. Thank you a bunch :)

Ham Casserole

Reviewed: Jan. 31, 2013
Wow, very nice! I substituted frozen peas and carrots for the bell pepper. I doubled the amount of potato and doubled the cheese sauce. So glad I did. It needed pepper. I loved the sauce and there was lots of it. Next time I would add more ham and peas/peas and carrots. Definitely comfort food.

Beef 'n' Eggplant Pie

Reviewed: May 14, 2011
Usually I make the recipe "as listed" the first time, but tweeked it to fill yellow bell peppers. I used a whole eggplant (with skins on) and doubled the tomato sauce. I love eggplant (especially with the skins on) and was hoping my husband would too. (He can go either way.) We loved the result. Thanks!!

Breakfast The Night Before

Reviewed: Dec. 12, 2009
I made this recipe as given but opt to use "Italian" (seasoned) pork. It was yummy. I love the ease of cubing the cheese and preparing the dish the night before.

Chicken Salad Balsamic

Amy Rose's Roasted Cauliflower Soup

Reviewed: Mar. 4, 2012
This recipes needs tweeting but has possibilities. I LOVED the cumin in this recipe. Perhaps my Magic Bullet pulverized the soup too much, but I would prefer it chunkier and thicker. I added some chopped red onions near the end of the cooking with the broth and added shredded cheddar cheese on top when serving. There will be a next time!!! I think I will thicken it with a slightly thickened white sauce. Yeah, I know, more calories, but we just like thicker soups.

Eggplant Tomato Bake

Reviewed: Jan. 15, 2013
Loved it .... after adding salt and pepper, pesto, and EVOO. Even though this added calories, it is still next-to-nothing calories. YUM. I think it's more like an appetizer. I left on the eggplant skin and baked at 400 degrees for 20 minutes was nice.

Chicken Biscuit Pie

Reviewed: Dec. 1, 2012
OK, 5 stars after minor tweeking .... I added thyme, oregano, and grated fresh garlic. For the biscuit, I used Glutin Free Bisquick. Hubby and I are totally jazzed with eating a biscuit topped casserole since we are (trying to be) GF. This is comfort food!!! So easy. I will make this many times. ;)

Oven Roasted Red Potatoes and Asparagus

Reviewed: Nov. 17, 2011
OMG .... this is delicious. Be sure to add the asparagus at the end so it doesn't overcook. I cut mine in 4ths. Upon cooling (waiting for my husband to end his business call), I drizzled some Balsamic Vinegar on top. (This advanced the rating to a 15. Tee Hee.) Next time I made add a little while cooking. Also, next time I will add some diced red onions. I will be making this soon. :)
