Slow Cooker Cider Pork Roast

Reviewed: Apr. 26, 2012
This an excellent base recipe. Except for leaving out the water I followed the recipe to the "T" and found, like others have mentioned, the flavor a bit bland. A bit of salt and a couple spices in the sauce might help, as well as the addition of either nutmeg or cloves to the flour mixture. I'm glad I left out the water; it would have added too much moisture and further weakened the flavors. All in all, this is definitely worth trying.

Easy Garlic Broiled Chicken

Reviewed: Mar. 29, 2012
Very easy, very tasty. Didn't have garlic so I ended up using the equivalent in garlic powder, 2.25 teaspoons. Next time I make this, which will be often, I'll be sure to have fresh garlic on-hand.

Lemon Chicken Piccata

Reviewed: Oct. 12, 2011
Wow, wow, wow!! This was indeed tasty and tender, and somewhat easy. However, after reading the recipe and a few reviews regarding bitterness, I made some very slight changes. I've cooked with capers and thought 2 tablespoons sounded a bit much, so I reduced the amount to 1 tablespoon (in the future I might even bring it down to 1/2 tablespoon). Also, rather than using lemon slices I simply zested the lemon, avoiding the bitterness. This is definitely a make-again recipe!

Leftover Turkey Cheesecake

Reviewed: Nov. 30, 2010
Not bad, but far from great. Needs a bit of doctoring. Maybe some broccoli or asparagus. The cranberry topping gave it an odd taste. I'll make this again, but with a few changes.

Melissa's Turkey Meatloaf

Reviewed: Oct. 26, 2010
If it hadn't been for all the celery I'd have given this recipe more stars. After adding only one stalk, we found it had too much celery, which seemed to make the turkey loaf taste bitter. Otherwise this turned out somewhat well.

Slow Cooker Beef Stew I

Reviewed: Oct. 5, 2010
I made this with two changes: I followed the advice of others and coated the raw beef with the flour and browned it, and, since I had a handful of cherry tomatoes on hand, I cut them up and added them halfway through. I've made plenty of stews and this one is a big winner!

Slow Cooker Chicken Cacciatore

Reviewed: Oct. 1, 2010
This was a HIT! Followed the recipe to almost a tee; I only had four chicken breasts, and I did season and brown them before putting them in the slow-cooker. For the amount of wonderful sauce this makes I wish I'd had the six breasts the recipe calls for. It was extremely flavorful, not mushy at all, and quite easy to prepare. This will be made again!

Peanut Rice

I found this to be very tasty, not bland at all, with lots of good textures going on. Excellent recipe!

Grilled Lemon Herb Pork Chops

Reviewed: Jul. 25, 2010
Without a doubt, the best thing to come along for pork chops. Juicy, flavorful without masking the taste of the meat, easy. My dad, who is a finicky eater, loved it.

Cream Peas

Reviewed: Jun. 21, 2010
I did make changes mentioned by other folks, such as 1 tablespoon flour and 1 teaspoon sugar. I'm sure the sauce would have been too thick and WAY too sweet if I had followed the original. The peas and sauce turned out great with the changes!

Banana Banana Bread

Reviewed: Apr. 10, 2010
This is a good starter recipe. It could use some spice. Cinnamon perhaps? Very moist, but a touch on the bland side.

Delicious Ham and Potato Soup

Reviewed: Feb. 23, 2010
It's a very good starter recipe. I used a ham bone with as much meat as the recipe calls for, and I used homemade chicken stock rather than water and bouillon, allowing the ham to add salt to the soup. As for the seasonings, I added one quarter of a teaspoon of dried mustard and about a teaspoon of dried savory. All in all, a very good starter to have fun with.

Honey Baked Chicken I

Reviewed: Feb. 7, 2010
Very tasty and very easy. I remove the skin from the chicken to try and cut down the fat, but it also helps these wonderful flavors get deeper into the meat. Excellent recipe!

Potato Leek Soup I

Reviewed: Dec. 23, 2009
My initial taste of this recipe was on the bland side, especially since I don't use salt. But after letting it simmer a bit more and adjusting the seasonings, I found the flavors to be beautifully subtle. I love when I'm able to taste each ingredient, and I always forget what gentle flavors potatoes have. And the leeks really show through with a nice brightness. The only thing I did differently was mash about two thirds of the potatoes. The un-mashed chunks as well as the leeks added good texture. This is one soup I'll make again!

Baked Chicken on Rice

Reviewed: Aug. 24, 2009
I followed the recipe and it didn't turn out soupy at all. In fact it was just a touch dry. And a little bland. But a good base recipe. I'd make it again with a few changes.

Lemon-Orange Orange Roughy

Reviewed: Apr. 3, 2009
Very nice, easy, tasty recipe. I baked the orange roughy rather than fried it. The flavor of the fish really stood out. Lime juice instead of lemon juice might be a bit tastier.

Mandarin Pork Roast

Reviewed: Apr. 1, 2009
Outstanding! Tangy, tender, moist! The only problem I had was the low temperature for a short cooking time. I had to bring the oven temperature up to 375 for the final forty five minutes to get the pork to a safe eating temperature. Still, it came out beautifully! I made some cumin and clove wild rice to go along with the roast.

Irish Stew

Reviewed: Mar. 16, 2009
This is a very good recipe, and the closest to what I've been told by several Irish friends is traditional Irish stew. The main difference between this recipe and other versions I've had is traditional Irish stew is assembled in layers; meat and onions/leeks first, then the carrots and parsnips/turnips, and then the potatoes, each layer getting a touch of salt, pepper, rosemary and thyme. When the stew is ready to be served the spuds on top are lightly mashed, then stirred into the stew in order to thicken it. Like others I find lamb too strong for stew, so I used beef marinated in porter. I browned the beef in butter rather than oil. And I use beef stock instead of water. Still, this is a very good recipe to build on. Even better the next day!

Breaded Dijon Pork Chops

Reviewed: Mar. 11, 2009
Very tasty and very easy. I also had a difficult time getting all the crumbs (breadcrumbs) to stick, even after they fried. Still, the chops came out tasting fantastic! This is a make-again recipe!

Taco Seasoning I

Reviewed: Feb. 3, 2009
Very good. One tablespoon of chili powder proved a bit too hot for some in the family, but it was just right for me. Surpasses any packaged seasoning mix.
