Slow Cooker Beef Vegetable Soup

Reviewed: Aug. 14, 2012
I made this soup yesterday and I think the final result was amazing. I don't have a slow cooker so I just simmered it in a covered pot for nine hours.I used canned everything, just like it called for, except the carrots and the potatoes, which I used fresh. I found a vegetable soup spice mix in the gravy section of the supermarket as I couldn't find the one recommended in the original recipe, and used a carton of beef broth instead of a can. Sirloin steak was on sale (cheaper than stewmeat) so I used that instead. The only other alteration was one cup of white cooking sherry. The result was fabulous!! Either I'm really drunk or this is the best soup I've ever made!! Well done!!

Chocolate Cream Pie I

Reviewed: Nov. 9, 2011
I've made this pie twice now. I found the original recipe too sweet for my liking and not quite enough quantity to fill a shell, so the second time I used 3 cups of milk and 4 squares of unsweetened chocolate instead of 2. I left the sugar amount the same, but threw in a wee bit extra flour and egg yolk. It set up perfectly and this time it filled the shell right to the rim. If you're a dark chocolate lover like I am, you'll be really pleased with this recipe.
