Rempel Family Meatloaf

Reviewed: Jul. 17, 2006
My meat eating man did not seem thrilled with this recipe - tho he did eat two rather large slabs in one sitting. I, too, had to drain off the grease before slicing (dog loved that in his bowl!), but it cooked up well and seemed moist. Next time, I'm going to try my mother's recipe, and see...

Grandma's Lemon Meringue Pie

Reviewed: Jul. 17, 2006
This is the first lemon meringue pie i've ever made, and it was a home run out of the park! I must confess, while making it, I was not sure if it was going to turn out. I was not sure if the lemon mixture was thick enough... tho the meringue was PERFECTION. I thought I might have a crust and meringue pie with a liquidy middle. But I let it cool on a rack after baking till room temp, then tossed in the fridge for about an hour. When I sliced, it was a perfect pie. Tart and light and delicious.

Slow Cooker Barbeque

Reviewed: Jul. 17, 2006
My carnivore was not thrilled with this one. He loves roasts, BBQ and just about anything I do in the crock pot... but he felt - like other reviewers - that this was too BBQ-y. (AND I used his fav sauce!) The meat was very tender, but if I did it again, i would cook in a simple sauce of beef stock, onions, etc, and THEN add the BBQ just for the last hour of cooking. I won't make this recipe like this again.

Maple Glazed Ribs

Reviewed: Jun. 7, 2006
This is def being added to the regular recipe list in our house. I used the ingredients, and threw the whole mess in the crock pot, and cooked on high for 4-5 hours. Then I had my boyfriend taste, and he wanted me to add some BBQ sauce, so I did, and cooked on low for anther half hour or so. They meat was fall off the bone tender, and apparantly, in my house anyway, this recipe serves ONE hungry man. Leftovers? What leftovers?

Jay's Signature Pizza Crust

Reviewed: Apr. 17, 2006
This is perfect pizza dough. I did use 1 cup of whole wheat flour in the recipe, and mixed in enough white flour until not sticky (it was a little more flour for me than in the recipe). I let it rise (it rose up beautifully), then put it in the fridge overnight before baking. I had enough crust for two BIG pizzas - could have even made three! I will never buy those trader joe's doughs again! This was flavorful all on it's own, and also when I brushed olive oil and garlic powder on the partially baked crust. YUM.

Amish Slaw

Reviewed: Apr. 12, 2006
This is a tasty mayo-less slaw! I use one bag of pre=chopped slaw mix (green and red cabbage with carrots) and cut the sauce mix in half - and only use 1/4 cup of oil. Last time I made it, I used red onions and it added a nice flavor.

Guinness® Corned Beef

Reviewed: Mar. 20, 2006
I gave it two stars for as written - Please take note of ALL the previous reviewers and cook this IN A CROCK POT NOT THE OVEN! I cooked this in the oven - omitting the rack, right in the guinness, adding the seasoning packet, and covering for the first two hours of cooking. The meat just would NOT get tender. We didn't end up eating until 9:45 pm, and it was still chewy. The next day, I threw the whole thing in the slow cooker and cooked ALL Day on low. (8 hrs) and finally it was nice and tender. After the meat was tender, my meat eating man decided the flavor was actually pretty good, but I still don't think I'll be making this again.

Hungarian Goulash II

Reviewed: Feb. 15, 2006
This was not the best slow cooker recipe for the amount of work involved. (I cut steaks into pieces, seasoned and browned the meat, created a roux to thicken, etc). The meat was extra tender, but my boyfriend said (as other reviewers have) that the "sauce" was missing something. He suggested Sour Cream. (He's used to goulash with sour cream - although I did pick this one b/c it seemed the best rated HEALTHY recipe!)

T. T.'s Cookies

Reviewed: Feb. 14, 2006
These are so good. I made them exactly as the recipe said and they are getting GOBBLED up at my office. :) You probably COULD cut the choc chips... but why would you? The more chocolate the better, right? Thanks!

Garlic Top Sirloin Pot Roast

Reviewed: Feb. 8, 2006
This was a BIG hit! I think I must also have one of those fast cooking slow cookers - I cooked it on high, and it was done in under 5 hrs. I also put in some mushrooms instead of carrots, and used beer instead of water. This did not last long!

Slow Cooker Sweet and Tangy Chicken

Reviewed: Feb. 7, 2006
My boyfriend LOVED this recipe - it was a big hit. I did alter the cooking a bit - used 4 large frozen chicken breasts, one bottle of BBQ sauce, and one can of pineapple. I don't think I cooked it quite as long as suggested either (usually I check slow cooker meat early, just in case). I'll be making this again.

Better Than Sex Cake II

Reviewed: Mar. 22, 2005
I always make birthday cakes for friends and co-workers. I USUALLY make the cakes from scratch, and like to experiment with different recipes. But I saw this well rated treat, was feeling "lazy" and had to try it. I am ashamed to admit that the birthday gal said that I had "outdone myself" with this very easy from the box cake. I must confess: I lied and told everyone it was from scratch. Sorry Betty! (Crocker, that is!)

Artichoke & Spinach Dip Restaurant Style

Reviewed: Dec. 14, 2004
Nearly 300 reviewers can't be wrong! This is a great one. I choose it because I'm not a big fan of sour cream or mayo (found in many spinach/artichoke dips). The alfredo sauce was a yummy, and easy, alternative! Thanks!

Spinach Brownies

Reviewed: Dec. 14, 2004
This is a simple, yummy spinach treat. I cut it into small squares and speared with tooth picks for appetizers. This recipe is also very easy to adjust for other veggies. I used the basic plan, but left out the spinach, and instead used a batch of mushrooms cooked with onions and garlic (with parsley, a little white wine, and salt and pepper) and it was GREAT - maybe even better than the spinach. I will use this again!

Mom's Pumpkin Pie

Reviewed: Nov. 20, 2004
I agree with the other reviewers who said that (1) this produced more than enough liquid for one pie - I may make two pies with the recipe next time or reduce the milk. Also (2) it took WAY longer than the suggested bake time. Mine also puffed up like a souffle and then settled when I took it out of the oven. However, after all of that, this recipe produced a pie with a very nice flavor. And I like using fresh milk and cream, rather than condensed, so that appealed to me!

Grandma's Fresh Apple Cake

Reviewed: Oct. 26, 2004
This was really good and easy. I was looking for a quick and easy recipe to make at my boyfriend's bachelor pad... with few ingredients and using no fancy equipment. This was perfect. He does not even own any baking pans, so I actually baked this in a coffee can - and it was great - like a giant muffin. I added an extra egg, and a little milk to get the batter to the consistancy I wanted, perhaps b/c I used 3 apples, which was prob a little more than 2 cups, and baked it longer b/c of the coffee can (about 1 hr and 10-15 mins). This dissappeared in less than 24 hours, and I will definitly make again.

Irresistible Irish Soda Bread

Reviewed: Aug. 10, 2004
Ok, so I made this recipe with burnt butter (i messed up, and didn't want to waste butter) and confectioner's sugar (was out of regular) and it was STILL great! I did use 2 cups of whole wheat flour, and 1 cup of white. This was not like the "traditional" Irish Soda bread I have gotten used to, but it was still pretty good. And baking it in the loaf pan made it great for toasting with butter, and even for PB&J sandwiches!

Hershey's ® 'Perfectly Chocolate' Chocolate Cake

Reviewed: Aug. 6, 2004
I made this cake from the recipe on the Hershey's Cocoa box... and it is the best chocolate cake I have ever made. I made it for a birthday at work, and the cake dissppeared in frighting speed. I followed the directions exactly, and it was simple and perfect. I want to try other Hershey's recipes now!

Chocolate Cheese Frosting

Reviewed: Aug. 6, 2004
I used this on a Red Velvet cake, and it worked pretty well. I made it for a birthday, and everyone kept saying "there is something different about this icing" as they gobbled it up. It was that cream cheese flavor... I did not use all the sugar - measured out 4 cups, and added it little by little until I had the sweetness I wanted. And yes, the flavor got much better after time.
