Orange Pecan French Toast

Reviewed: Aug. 28, 2011
Absolutely wonderful! The next time I will leave out the added sugar in the eggs. I only put in 1 T, but it was really sweet. I used Italian bread from Costo and left the crust on. I would say it would serve 6 to 8. I think I had 8 slices of bread in my 9 x13 pan. I also doubled the orange zest. It took all the liquid just fine. Leave it alone. A real keeper. Thank you for the recipe SR!

Slow Cooker Italian Beef for Sandwiches

Reviewed: Jul. 27, 2011
Soooo good! I used 3 C of water with 1 T Better Than Bullion Beef paste. Next time I will try 2 tsp of the paste. It was just a bit salty. I didn't add the salt, used onion powder instead of onion salt, but I did use 2 packages of the dressing mix. I use a 5 pound chuck roast. After 8 hours it was falling apart, so I shredded and put it back in the juice for 1 1/2 hours. I was amazed how the meat soaked up the juice, so be sure to do this. I had cut most of the fat off the roast, but there was still more than I would like to see on top after cooling. Next time I will use the suggestion to separate the meat from the juice and let it cool overnight, to skim the fat off, before adding the shredded meat to the juice. I served it on Hoagie mult-grain rolls (Everyone used 1/2 roll and ate it open faced) with grilled onions and fire roasted red peppers. Also served cole slaw and a fruit salad. Everyone really enjoyed it and it couldn't have been easier to prepare for a large group. Thank you so much for the "keeper".

Spicy Roasted Red Pepper and Feta Hummus

Reviewed: Jun. 3, 2011
I didn't have the roasted red peppers, so I used 6 Hatch Green Chilies. I also used one tsp of the Lighthouse Freeze-Dried Garlic, 1 T Tahini and added 2 chopped green onions at the end. Delicious! For breakfast I scrambled 2 eggs, put this Hummus on a FlatOut flatbread (Milti-grain w/Flax) and made a wrap. Very good, low calorie and lots of fiber. Give it a try! Thank you for the recipe. I will make it often.

Baked Apricot Chicken

Reviewed: Dec. 24, 2010
So delicious!!! I did use the Catalina dressing and I wouldn't try it with anything else. I used "All Fruit" apricot spread, because I didn't want the high fructose corn syrup. I used 1/2 package of Mrs. Grass Onion soup mix. I think a whole package would have been too much. I put in a couple large handfuls of dried cranberries. Everyone loved it! The only suggestion I got was to thicken the sauce with a little corn starch. I'll try that next time AND THERE WILL BE A NEXT TIME! Thank you!

Slow Cooker Tapioca Pudding

Reviewed: Dec. 15, 2010
Great recipe! The first time I made it, I saved the milk I soaked the pearls in and measured that into my milk requirements. BIG MISTAKE. It came out very starchy. This time I did it right and it was wonderful. I ALSO USED XYLITOL as my sweetener. It has a glycemic index of 8, so good for diabetics. It also build your bones and helps your strengthen your gums. Check it out on www.mercola.com. I got it at a health food store. I did add the salt and vanilla as mentioned by previous users. Thank all of you for writing. I will use this recipe often.

Butternut Squash Soup

Reviewed: Oct. 19, 2010
Very good. I did use some of the suggestions of others ie: bake the squash, garlic, celery, more onion, more cayanne pepper. I also used FAGE Green fat free Yogurt (Costco, TJ's) Better than Bullion chicken in a jar (Wal-Mart) and blended it all with my Braun hand mixer. I don't know how I ever made soup without my hand blender. You can put it in a boiling pot of puree. So much easier than putting batches in a blender. Thank you for the recipe. We love it.
