Mom's Carrot Casserole

Reviewed: Sep. 18, 2011
I just finished making this and was very disappointed. I believe I oversalted the carrots so that was my mistake. This is not creamy or bubbly. Carrots were not done in the oven, so am finishing them off in the microwave. The flavor of the topping, unfortunately, is not very tasty, either. I split this into two casseroles so I could share with the neighbors, but I don't think I will do so. I don't believe for the huge amount of carrots involved that I would be attempting this one again.

Meat-Lover's Slow Cooker Spaghetti Sauce

Reviewed: Feb. 16, 2013
I was a little surprised at the Italian herb addition when browning the meat,along with the powdered garlic, and then add more of them in the form of thyme, basil, marjoram and oregano to the sauce, which are already included in the Italian herb mix, tsp of which would not have much effect on flavoring the recipe. If I have them on hand, I always add grated carrots even to jarred sauce. Nice and gets some veggies in there. I am not a fan of stewed tomatoes as I don't care for the flavors. I saw some comments about the sauce being greasy. When the browned meat is drained, hardly any grease goes into the sauce. I also have simply added the meat uncooked to the sauce (jarred or otherwise) and it cooks just fine in the sauce, like I do with meatballs or sausage. You could probably skip the browning process altogether if you chose to. If the sauce is a little too thin for your liking, simply leave the lid off and let some of the water evaporate while cooking. And, yes, sugar balances the acidity of the tomatoes and does not make the sauce sweet, especially not the minuscule amount added. I also noted no salt/pepper being added. This is a taste-as-you-go recipe and may need some adjusting, along with a few red pepper flakes, perhaps, depending on the spiciness of the sauce you want.

Slow Cooker Butter Chicken

Reviewed: Aug. 15, 2014
I am committing the big sin of not actually making this but I am sure it is wonderful. I have a couple of comments about the recipe, however. The spices are not typically on my shelf and would entail trying to find them around my area; all that is prepared basically on the stove and could be finished up there or in the oven with the addition of the coconut milk and yogurt. Putting it all day in the crock pot would be unnecessary in my estimation.

Three Packet Slow Cooker Roast

Reviewed: Jul. 18, 2014
I have made this and it turns out absolutely wonderful. I don't know where the too salty, not enough salt, too bland, too awful to eat and all the negative comments and substitutions come from, but there is nothing negative about this. There was one comment about saving money by using stew meat and that, anymore, is no way to save money since they have really upped the price of stew meat because they realize we like using stew meat (I now cut my own) and a very inexpensive roast will suffice just wonderfully.

Slow Cooker Sausage with Sauce

Reviewed: Sep. 23, 2014
I am sorry but no one should need a recipe for this and no one should need to waste cooking it all day in a crock pot. Sorry. This is basic and can be done on top of the stove in 1/2 an hour. Cook the sausages directly in the sauce and skim off the grease. It is really okay to do that, don't you know. Pre-cooking or browning to remove the grease is an exercise in futility.
