Melt-in-Your-Mouth Slow Cooker Chicken

Reviewed: Aug. 8, 2014
We were not crazy about this dish. I used package of Wishbone Italian dressing & seasoning mix. The recipe did not say but I assume it was the dry mix and not the bottled dressing and the package did not say if it was 6 oz. Would someone let me know if this was correct? I did not have malt vinegar but several people said they did not use it. To me the sauce tasted very sweet so after it had cooked a bit and still tasted sweet, I added small amount of cider vinegar. When my 13 year old daughter tried it, she said it reminded her of a creamy tortilla soup with vinegar. The sauce almost reminded me of a creamy tomato soup but there was no tomato in it. If I used the wrong amount of Italian dressing, I will try it again but otherwise it was not for us.

Pizza Casserole

Reviewed: Jul. 31, 2012
We were not overly thrilled with this. Our 12 year old daughter said it was a nice switch from tuna casserole but she liked tuna casserole better. Our 11 year old daughter did not care for it that much. My husband thought it wasn't that bad. I felt a little less then that about it. I wonder if the pizza sauce would make a difference. We used Classico brand. I appreciate though a site where we can leave feedback.

Peking Pork Chops

Reviewed: Apr. 9, 2012
Our family liked it. I think I have heard Hoison sauce called Chinese catsup. Based on another recommendation, I used hoison sauce in place of catsup. I used half light soy sauce. For us, 4 1/2 hours was a bit long and the pork chops were starting to dry out. I also added a bit of pineapple juice towards the end based on someone else writing that they had added pineapple. Also added a little rice vinegar. I will definately make this again because even though we changed some of it, we liked the flavor and having another slow cooker recipe.

Day Before Mashed Potatoes

Reviewed: Dec. 25, 2011
These were a hit for us. I had to substitute garlic powder for the onion powder because I it was what I had. I did take one reviewers suggestion of making it the same day. I followed the recipe but then put it on the crock pot on low. They were there for about 4 hours and were great. I like being about to keep the oven free and have one less thing to do at the time the meal is ready.

Six Can Chicken Tortilla Soup

Reviewed: Feb. 1, 2011
I made the adjustments others had suggested of adding 2 cans of cream of chicken soup. I also cooked a thin chicken breast in water, cut it up and added to the soup instead of canned chicken. I also added some cumin and garlic powder. At the very end, I added some fresh cilantro and fresh lime juice. We liked it. Will make it again.

Amazing Pork Tenderloin in the Slow Cooker

Reviewed: Sep. 21, 2010
Loved it! With the wine we used, it tasted pretty strong so I added more chicken broth (substitued for water) after it cooked, used cornstarch and water to thicken and then salt and pepper. I noticed the recipe says it is for 6. There are 2 adults, 2 girls ages 11 & 9, and we had a little left - not enough or 2 more people though! This will be a regular for us.
