Corned Beef and Cabbage

Reviewed: Mar. 17, 2012
Thank you, thank you, thank you for this recipe! I have NEVER liked corned beef much, but this was fabulous. I will never make it any other way from now on. The crockpot was a PERFECT way to cook this dinner. I used a 7 quart crockpot because I had 2 pieces of corned beef totaling 5.5 pounds. For the cooking liquid, I doubled all the ingredients EXCEPT the sugar. And like others said, I put the meat on the bottom and the vegetables on top to ensure that all the meat was immersed in the water. I didn't have room for the cabbage, so I cooked that separately. I loved the flavor of the potatoes and carrots...the extra kick that the vinegar/sugar gave to the brine was just delicious. Dinner was a huge hit today!

Slow Cooker Guisado Verde

Reviewed: Feb. 24, 2012
I made this recipe exactly as written, but since I could not find canned tomatillos, I used 1.5 pounds of chopped, fresh tomatillos. I found the finished product to be bland, and much too "sharp" (practically lemony) from the fresh tomatillos. I added: 2T cumin, 1/2t cinnamon, extra salt, and a sprinkling each of tapioca and corn meal to thicken it (I got this idea from another Guisado Verde recipe). It was better after those additions, but still not great. The acidity from the tomatillos overpowers everything. Then I added some white cannellini beans to see if that helped. Not really. I am a huge chili fan, and make it at least twice a month (including many green chili varieties). I can't believe I'm saying this, but I wouldn't recommend making this with fresh tomatillos. It's just too acidic and nothing I add to it helps. I won't be making this again.

I made this with chopped white meat chicken, 1/2t cinnamon and 1 bunch of cilantro, chopped. It was delicious. Thanks for the recipe!

Pecan Pie V

Reviewed: Nov. 25, 2011
Wonderful. So happy to have found this recipe. Everyone loved it on Thanksgiving yesterday, so I am making another pie today so I can have some! Pie could be made with walnuts, too. Delicious and not gooey. Yum.

Creamed Onions

Reviewed: Nov. 24, 2011
So. Hmmm. 13 5 star reviews led me to make this recipe. After having done so, all I can say is, "TWO sticks of butter? Was that a typo?" There's so much butter in this recipe that the sauce ends up being a gloppy mess, with half an inch of butter floating on top. I ended up baking them in the oven a little, and even before serving them, I used a slotted spoon to transfer them out of the buttery mess into another pan, because there's no way I would have served it with that much butter floating on top. I love butter, really. But 2 sticks in this recipe is ridiculous. Try one stick. And maybe even less than that.

Slow Cooker Latin Chicken

Reviewed: Nov. 6, 2011
This is absolutely delicious. I can't stop going back for more. I added more broth than called for and would recommend others do the same, otherwise it won't be saucy enough. The flavor is fabulous!
