Slow Cooker BBQ Chicken

Reviewed: Dec. 1, 2010
This was delicious! As other reviewers suggested, I cut the maple syrup down to 1/4 cup and added 1/4 cup bottled BBQ sauce (I used Stubbs). I used 2 large boneless, skinless chicken breasts but still used the full amount of sauce called for the ensure the chicken did not dry out. I cooked mine on high and they were done in 3 1/2 hours. I served this with whole wheat tortillas, shredded cheddar cheese and lettuce. Thanks for the delicious and easy recipe!

Unique Spinach Noodles

Reviewed: Jan. 6, 2011
We really enjoyed these! Just a couple tips for anyone using a pasta maker to prepare these noodles (as I did). First- I didn't cook down the spinach. I used a food processor to chop the spinach and then added the water, egg, and flour and blended the dough. This saved on pans/prep time. I plan to do it this way again next time, however, I will omit the water or add more flour in order to create a more dry dough. Otherwise- flavor was very good. Thanks for sharing the recipe!

Ghirardelli® Triple Chocolate Truffle Cake

Reviewed: Oct. 20, 2010
Wow- this was restaurant quality good. My husband already asked me to make this as his birthday cake. As other reviewers recommended, I garnished with fresh raspberries. Also- note that this is a rich cake, so just a small slice will be enough to satisfy even a serious choc-o-holic! Thanks for the definite "keeper" recipe!

Easy Garam Masala

Reviewed: Nov. 29, 2010
I had a curry recipe that called for garam masala. I searched the grocery store endlessly (including bulk spices and specialty areas) with no luck. I was so happy to find this "quick fix" on Allrecipes. I thought this was the perfect blend of seasonings- the curry tasted delicious and authentic. I ground my own coriander because I only had whole on hand. Otherwise, left everything the same. Thanks for the recipe- I will use this from now on any time I need garam masala!

Spicy Pumpkin Chili

Reviewed: Oct. 29, 2010
Overall, this was pretty darn good! I haven't had a chance to try pumpkin chili yet, so I was surprised by what a delcious flavor this added to the chili. It made it taste earthy and just slightly sweeter. I did make a few changes based on other reviews. I did not drain my beans which helped make the chili soupier. Also, I used fresh garlic. And, I used ground turkey instead of ground beef. The one thing I would have liked is for it to be a little spicier. I would recommend added diced green chilies/jalapenos/something to add a little more heat which I will experiment with next time around. Thanks for the fun fall recipe, Daisy!

Honey Ribs

Reviewed: Jan. 27, 2011
We have made this recipe many times and we really enjoy it. My husband requests "crock pot ribs" when he wants a special meal- referring to this recipe! A couple tidbits I have gleaned over many times of making this: 1.) Do not make the mistake of getting beef back ribs- spend the extra money and get the pork baby back ribs. Otherwise, you will be disappointed with the greasiness of the ribs/sauce. 2.) As other reviewers suggest, take these out of the crock pot, drizzle with BBQ sauce, and crisp them up in your oven broiler for a few minutes prior to serving. This makes for an excellent texture and flavor.

Quick Chicken And Wine

Reviewed: Oct. 11, 2010
With a few simple changes suggested by other reviewers, this recipe was perfect! I dried the raw chicken with paper towels, then pounded it with a meat mallet. In order to help the parmesan stick, I dipped the chicken in flour, then egg, then parmesan. After browning the chicken in the butter, I removed it from the skillet and kept it warm in the oven. I then reduced the wine sauce in the skillet and served everything. YUM! Thanks for the recipe.

Awesome Spicy Beef Kabobs OR Haitian Voodoo Sticks

Reviewed: Jul. 7, 2011
Yum! As other reviewers suggested, I did cut the cayenne in half as I let my sirloin marinate for ~10 hours. The only change I will make next time is to omit the salt as I felt the bouillon provided enough. Otherwise, excellent. Thanks!

Basil-Lime Sorbet

Reviewed: Jun. 20, 2011
This was refreshing! I opted to make my simple syrup on the stove, add lime juice, then add basil leaves- let those steep in the lime/syrup mixture for 2 hours, then strained the basil leaves out. The sorbet had an excellent and refreshing flavor. The amount of basil taste was just right. Thanks for sharing!

Brie en Croute

Reviewed: Dec. 20, 2010
WOW- this was so elegant and delicious! I didn't have any leftover puff pastry, so I etched a design on top with a sharp knife and it still looked lovely. Thanks for a simple recipe that was a crowd pleaser- I will hang on to this one for sure!

Black Bean and Corn Salad

Reviewed: Nov. 12, 2010
This salad was flavorful and refreshing! I used shredded cheese because that is what I had on hand, and it was delicious. Other than that- I made no changes- this is perfect as written.

Creamy Broccoli Soup

Reviewed: Nov. 3, 2010
This soup was super easy and very tasty! I liked that it used fresh broccoli and cheese that was not processed cheese. Also- I was amazed that it tasted so thick and creamy with no butter or heavy cream/half and half! Next time, I will cut back the oregano just a bit (1/4 tsp.) and I will double the recipe (for us- this made 2 large bowls of soup). Like others, I would say the cheese is a must! Thanks for sharing- I will make this again.

Rhubarb Crumb Coffee Cake

Reviewed: Jun. 20, 2011
The flavor of this cake was delicious. But I have to admit, I was a little disappointed with how the crumb topping just melted into the cake. If I make this again, I will tweak the directions to try to keep it more in a crumb form.

Slot Key Rolls

Reviewed: May 4, 2011
These were a good, basic roll. I really liked the yeast-y flavor. A couple notes: 1.) grease your bowls well; my rolls really stuck to my soup bowls. 2.) in hindsight, I don't know if it was worth the effort of using 6 separate soup bowls. It does make the size of the rolls nice and large, but I think a muffin pan would be much easier. Overall good recipe, though- thanks!

Apple Cake VI

Reviewed: Mar. 3, 2011
This was yummy! In texture, it is very similar to a coffee cake. Since other reviewers were having trouble with their apples sinking, I chose to grate mine- this worked perfectly. Also- I did not have any OJ on hand so I subbed lemon juice which worked out just fine as well. We made a homemade caramel sauce to drizzle over the top- everyone enjoyed this and we will make it again. Thanks!

Oatmeal Waffles

Reviewed: Dec. 9, 2010
Unfortunatly, we just weren't that impressed with these. I followed the recipe exactly. The end result was a soggy waffle with not much flavor (if anything, a bit on the salty side...) Thanks for sharing a healthy recipe- but sad to say we won't make this one again.

Spanish Rice II

Reviewed: Nov. 12, 2010
YUM! I used brown rice but otherwise made no changes. The one thing I would caution is allow plenty of time for the rice to simmer down- mine needed about 35 minutes total. However, the end result is so delicious. I will definitely be making this again.

Butter Bean Burgers

Reviewed: Nov. 5, 2010
These were a nice change from a traditional ground beef burger. As other reviewers suggested- sub 1/4 cup bread crumbs for the saltine crackers as it helps the burgers hold together better. Also- unless you really do not care for it, do not leave out the jalepeno- the burgers are a little too bland without it. Thanks for sharing the recipe, Silverwolf! I enjoyed changing things up a bit.

Kathleen’s Parmesan Peppercorn Bread

Reviewed: Oct. 28, 2010
This bread was really something special. There were a couple things that would help improve it next time I make it- there is no mention in the recipe of where to incorporate the salt or the crushed peppercorns. I ended up kneading those into the bread but think it may have helped had I incorporated them in earlier. Also- we found 1 1/2 Tbsp. of peppercorns to be too peppery for our taste- next time I will reduce this to 1 1/2 tsp. Otherwise, this was an amazing homemade bread that I can't wait to make again. Thank you so much for sharing Kathleen! We really enjoyed it!

Almond Sherbet

Reviewed: Aug. 16, 2011
I made this for the 'Why doesn't anyone make my recipe?' challenge. The flavor is delicious! I would have given it 5 stars except that I found it way too sweet. If I had passed on the added sugar, it would have been perfect. Thanks, Cuppycake!
