Slow Cooker Chicken Parisienne

Reviewed: Dec. 29, 2010
This was a tasty quick-to-combine recipe the whole family enjoyed (incl. kids ages 18 mos, 7 & 11 yrs). I lightened up the sauce by using 98% fat free cream of mushroom soup & light sour cream. It appeared to separate a little after simmering, but took another reviewers suggestion and removed the lid for the last hour before eating and it thickened nicely. Either way, the taste was very good. We didn't find it too tangy or that the wine taste was too strong, only change I would make would be fresh mushrooms next time. Served alongside mashed potatoes & green beans, usng the extra sauce as a gravy. Will definitely make again!

Pumpkin Pie Squares

Reviewed: Oct. 14, 2010
Great to use as starter recipe... I agree the crust ingredients weren't enough for a 9x13", but I did half again as much (3/4 c. butter, 3/4 c. bro sugar & 1 1/2 c. flour total) and it was just right. I used squash (we call it crook-neck, not sure of the official name for it) that we had in freezer from last fall in place of pumpkin, and despite it being alot more moist, the flavor and texture was great in the finished product. Baked it right at an hour. Probably could've gone a little less but with the recent egg recalls I wanted to make sure it was completely cooked through.

Apple Streusel Bran Muffins

Reviewed: Jan. 9, 2013
This is my first attempt at making any kind of bran muffin so I don't have anything to compare it to, but as a muffin on it's own it was a tasty, healthy muffin. The recipe says makes 12, but I followed it almost exactly and got 18 standard size muffins. The only thing I changed was going half oil & half applesauce. The slightly sweet is just right I think, and I cut up 2 regular size apples (which was about 2 1/3 c. when chopped) and that was plenty. They're a little crumbly, but that might be because of the oil change. Or because we ate them too quickly after taking out of the oven :) Will try following recipe exactly next time & see how they turn out.
