Apricot Chicken

Reviewed: Dec. 21, 2010
This was AWESOME. It was quick and easy. I thought the chicken would be rubbery cooking it in the microwave, but it was tender and delicious. I ended up cooking it for an additional few minutes though, because the time indicated was not enough.

Slow Cooker Chicken Stroganoff

Reviewed: Dec. 27, 2010
This recipe was amazingly easy and tasty. I didn't like the MSG and wheat flour in the condensed cream of chicken soup, so I used Progresso Broccoli, Potato and Cheese soup which is gluten and MSG free. I also added a bag of fresh broccoli and a bag of fresh mushrooms and used butter instead of margarine. Plus, I used twice as much of everything except for the chicken so the dish would be really saucy. I served it over rice.

Chicken Crumb Coating

Reviewed: Jan. 5, 2011
This was a great recipe. It was super-easy, healthy and tasty. I used skinless, boneless chicken breasts and cut them into chicken-tender-sized pieces and made chicken nuggets. I would add a little bit of season salt next time to give it a little more flavor.

Spanikopita

Reviewed: Jan. 24, 2011
My 12 year-old daughter made these herself and they were spectacular. I didn't have unsalted butter, so she used salted, which made it a bit too salty. Next time we'll follow the recipe exactly.

Carrot Burgers

Reviewed: Jan. 27, 2011
These tasted great and my husband and kids loved them. I did have some trouble with the patties not holding together despite adding an extra egg as a binder. Still, the taste was great. Next time I will add even more egg or maybe some potato to help hold them together.

Mini Cheeseburgers

Reviewed: Feb. 11, 2011
My family felt that these were the best burgers they've ever had. I didn't make them mini--just regular-sized and served them on soft onion rolls. They were so flavorful, we didn't put the extra ketchup on top.

Sloppy Joes II

Reviewed: Feb. 13, 2011
This was easy to make and very tasty. Everyone loved it, but my husband and I felt it was a little to sweet and "ketchup-y" tasting, even though I put a little less ketchup than the recipe called for. Next time I may use tomato sauce and paste instead and I might up the mustard just a tad.

The Big Easy Jambalaya

Reviewed: Mar. 10, 2011
This recipe was very easy and tasty. I didn't like that Zatarain's had MSG and other ingredients I try to avoid. so I looked at some of the other jambalaya recipes that didn't use a mix to see what seasonings they used. I used a combo of garlic powder, dried thyme, dried oregano, paprika, tabasco sauce and beef bullion. I used chicken andouille sausage to lower the fat. I also added precooked, frozen rice. The result was awesome.

Low Sugar Strawberry Rhubarb Crunch

Reviewed: May 29, 2011
This was awesome. I got some stalks of rhubarb in my organic produce basket this week. I'd never made anything with rhubarb before and didn't want anything with too much sugar. This was perfect. I only had 3 cups of rhubarb, so I made up the difference with more strawberries. Even so, this was about at the tartness limit for my family, so I will probably do it this way from now on. This is a great, healthy dessert that I plan to make a lot. Thanks for a great recipe!

Chicken Breast Stuffed with Spinach Blue Cheese and Bacon

Reviewed: Sep. 9, 2011
This recipe was great for us because my husband and I are on the Atkins Diet. I didn't use flour and didn't brown the chicken. And I used bacon bits for the filling which eliminated the need to cook and chop the bacon. I filled the pounded chicken breasts, rolled them up and then wrapped raw bacon strips around them to secure them--didn't even need toothpicks. Then I baked them. For some reason, it took a lot longer than 30 minutes to cook--more like an hour. At the end, I took the foil off so the bacon could brown a bit. I did buy almond meal to "bread" them, but got lazy and didn't bother. It was delicious anyway.

Easy Alfredo Sauce I

Reviewed: Sep. 23, 2012
Could not have been easier or more delicious. I added some garlic powder, black pepper and thyme for added flavor. My husband and I are on the Atkins diet and the premade Alfredo sauce has corn starch and other fillers we didn't want. We had this over chicken and vegetables and it was terrific.

Simple Roasted Butternut Squash

Reviewed: Dec. 17, 2013
Made this last night with precut, organic butternut squash so all the hard work was done for me. I made it exactly according to the recipe and it came out perfectly. My daughter that likes squash loved it and my daughter that hates squash ate it without complaint. This will be a staple in our house. Thank you MChele!

Slow Cooker Pumpkin Turkey Chili

Reviewed: Jan. 10, 2014
Just tried this tonight and despite husband and daughter not being enthusiastic when I said I was making turkey pumpkin chili, they ended up loving it (even my 12 year-old ). I used a few of the suggestions from other reviewers such as using canned pumpkin (2 cups), adding a chopped jalepeno pepper, and using white kidney/cannellini beans instead of black beans. I also added a 3rd can of beans as another review suggested, so I ened up using 1 can of chili beans and 2 cans of cannellini beans. Other than that, I kept everything the same, including the amount of spices (though I did add salt and pepper). My husband said he would have liked more spices, but I thought it was good as is. I might add more jalepenos next time for a little more heat. It was a big success and will be a part of our regular meal planning from now on. Thanks for a great recipe!

Lentil Quiche

Reviewed: Feb. 4, 2014
This was the best lentil dish I have ever had. I had a bag of black lentils sitting in the cabinet for about a year and didn't know what to do with them. This receipe was delicious. I made 2 quiches and had the extra one for lunch over the next couple of days reheated in the microwave with extra cheese melted on top. As other reviewers suggested, I did not add the tomato. I made the mistake of adding salt to the lentils as they were cooking (my idea, not in the receipe), but it wasn't necessary and next time I won't do that. The kids even ate it and didn't complain. I plan to make this regularly.

Spinach Quiche

Reviewed: Feb. 10, 2014
This was delicious and couldn't have been easier. I followed the directions exactly, except I doubled the recipe so I could have leftovers. As others suggested, I squeezed out the spinach before mixing in the other ingredients so it didn't make the quiche watery. It was a lovely, healthy, light quiche that I will gladly make again.

Charley's Slow Cooker Mexican Style Meat

Reviewed: May 3, 2014
This was not only the best thing I've ever made in a slow cooker, it is the best meat I've ever made too. I used an organic chuck roast (expensive, but worth it) that was a little over 4 lbs. I followed others' suggestions and did not bother with browning the meat. I just put it in the slow cooker and seasoned it there. I used 1 Anaheim chile, 1 Serrano, and 3 or 4 jalepenos. It was a bit on the spicy side, but I served it with rice and avocado, which cooled it down a bit. Next time I may use fewer chiles. I ended up cooking it for 9 1/2 hours on high because I was out in the evening and couldn't turn it down. When I got home, it shredded like a dream--virtually falling apart. I shredded the meat right in the slow cooker and then let it simmer for about an hour in the liquid with the lid off so it reduced a bit. This let all the meat absorb the flavors from the liquid. It was absolutely amazing! Thank you Charley!
