Outrageous Chocolate Chip Cookies

Reviewed: Jan. 16, 2006
I just made these as written & they are WONDERFUL!!! My favorite part about this cookie is it's texture. Like others have said, they don't spread- which is a MUST in my book! 10 minutes is perfect. Be sure to mix the sugars, butter, PB, egg, & vanilla first- then add the flour mixed with the soda, salt, & oats. Lastly the ch chips. Amazing cookie- thanks so much for submitting!

Easy Slow Cooker Meatballs

Reviewed: Mar. 26, 2003
Great recipe! I had to make a few changes- I had 2 lbs. meat thawed out, so I used all of it. I used 1 cup bread crumbs (Italian). 1 1/2 T. dried parsley, & sauteed the onion before adding. I also used 3/4 c. egg beaters because the crumb mixture looked too dry. 26oz sauce, 14oz crushed, & 37oz puree! ( it was the only size the store had, + I was using that extra meat!) I added a little Italian seasoning because of that & a little sugar. Next time I might add a little red wine, too! I cooked on high for the first hour, then stirred. Finished with 4 more hours on low. They turned out great. I also used Laura's ground round as always. Not greasy AT ALL!!! We used these for meatball sub sandwiches- YUM! I'll use the leftovers with spaghetti. I love slow cooker recipes! THANKS.

Quick and Simple Broccoli and Cheese

Reviewed: Aug. 3, 2004
I used a 14oz bag of baby flowerets. Only used 1 1/2 T. butter & asiago instead of cheddar. My family LOVED it!!! Great for low carb. I also just cooked it per directions on bag using microwave, then did the seasoning thing. Thanks!

Erica's Delicious Slow Cooker Beef Roast

Reviewed: Jan. 1, 2005
I'm giving this a 5 even though it was a little bland. I was ecstatic when I found a Laura's Lean Beef roast at Target! It was only 2 pounds, so I searched for a recipe using a 2 pounder. Definitely use at least double the amount of carrots- I made it as written & wished I had used more. I also would cut down on the onion & maybe use the mushroom soup with either herbs or extra garlic. The cut of meat was totally lean- & fell apart! I took the suggestion of cooking for 7 hours & that was perfect- being that it is such a small roast. Turned out really tender & the amount of gravy was perfect. Thanks Erica!

Orange Pecan French Toast

Reviewed: Dec. 27, 2005
WOW- was a hit for Christmas Eve brunch! I used real maple syrup instead of corn syrup & 3/8 cup of Egg Beaters for the egg whites. The pan was completely empty when I went back for seconds!!! P.S.- If you use one of the loaves from the twin pack of Pepperidge Farms french bread, it fills the 13x9 perfectly. Good texture, too.......

Chicken Nuggets

Reviewed: Sep. 16, 2005
WOW- much better than I anticipated- although next time I will reduce the salt. The batter looked too thin to me, but actually came out great. Almost reminded me of fish & chips batter. I think they would be better with a little seasoning like onion/garlic powder. Used an electric skillet with about an inch of corn oil. Thanks for submitting!

Roquefort Dressing

Reviewed: Mar. 16, 2003
Very good dressing! I halved all the ingredients- I didn't need a lot. You can't get much easier! I'll try fat free mayo next time to try to make it a little healthier. Thanks, L.R.!!!

Fresh Fig Cake

Reviewed: Jul. 28, 2004
I made this yesterday & today it's here on "Recipes of the Day!" My neighbor just gave us a sack full of figs & I didn't know what to do with them! This cake is really good- I used a 13x9 pan. I didn't use the icing since I wasn't doing a layer cake- I used Caramel Frosting VI. (with no nuts) It was good too- although I would have liked a little more- next time I will use 1 1/2 times as much. My son REALLY loved it. Next time I also might puree the figs first & maybe use 2 cups. (I used a heaping cup of chopped.) Thanks for submitting- & thanks to my neighbor, Leroy!

Zesty Slow Cooker Chicken Barbecue

Reviewed: May 6, 2007
I read the reviews & knew I didn't want shredded chicken, so I decided to bake it it the oven instead. I prepared the chicken in a 13x9 & covered it with foil & put it in the fridge for a few hours. Then baked at 375 covered for 30 minutes & uncovered for 15. (spooned sauce over after removing foil.) Everyone loved it & the chicken was tender. (it was fresh chicken, not frozen) Thanks for submitting!

Oriental Vinaigrette

Reviewed: Apr. 20, 2003
Delicious! I doubled the recipe so we'd have plenty. Used toasted sesame oil. I bet it would be a good chicken marinade, too.

Terry's Texas Pinto Beans

Reviewed: Apr. 10, 2006
I left out the jalapeno, being the wimp that I am. Glad, too, since this has a bite anyway. Uh...the beans were still a tad "crunchy" & I cooked 'em 2 1/2 hours. (Maybe you are supposed to cover these with a lid?!?) I would advise to use a slow cooker or use a lid or cook longer. I also added a few tablespoons of bacon bits. These would be very good if you cook them until soft.

Yummy Artichoke Dip

Reviewed: Dec. 30, 2004
Sorry- I didn't think this was so great. It was too greasy. Maybe it's because I used Hellman's - it is not as creamy as Kraft mayo. People did eat it, I'm just used to the more creamy artichoke dips.

Pat's Cream of Potato Soup

Reviewed: Jan. 26, 2008
Pretty good stuff & easy. I always use bacon bits- so I just saute'd the onion in a little butter, then added the flour. Then chicken broth & bacon, etc. Definitely mash the potatoes quite well in the pan,(when done) & stir between mashings to bring up the potatoes from the bottom. Cook at least 30 minutes- maybe 35-40!

Mom's Chili

Reviewed: Sep. 17, 2004
Very good chili! I was looking for a chili recipe using Ranch Style Beans since that is what I had. I was craving Frito Pie!!! Put some corn chips in your bowl, pour chili on top, then cheese!( or melt some Velveeta with a little milk & use that) YUM!!! I did add about 2/3 - 1 cup of extra water as it simmered down. (simmer down, now!!!)

Mashed Potato Casserole

Reviewed: May 30, 2003
Love this! I'm weird- I like instant mashed potatoes better than real! So I knew I had to try this recipe. After reading the reviews, I decided to use 1 1/3 c. milk. It worked out great. Baked 30 min. I also used my electric mixer to blend the cream cheese mixture, as well as after putting it all together. I might try the sour cream/onion powder thing next time to make it totally smooth. But it's terrific the way it is!UPDATE: I used 3 cups of water & 1 1/2 c. milk this time. I also put the dip, eggs, & cream cheese in the blender to make it smooth! Even better this way!
