Cola Pot Roast II

Reviewed: Apr. 21, 2011
This was very good - definitely tasty, but I wouldn't say the best I have ever had. I cooked everything in crock pot on low for about 10 hours while I was at work. I used baby portabellas and a whole onion in addition to the carrots (which I used about 3/4 bag of baby carrots) and celery. I was a little concerned about lack of liquid, so once everything was in the crock pot, I threw a little splash of water in there. There was lots of "juice" to work with in the end and it was quite flavorful. I added another envelope of brown gravy mix, as I like my gravies super rich and, yes, a little salty. Even so, everyone thought the gravy and veggies were perfect, despite the addition of more gravy mix. I would make this again the same way, but will probably add some peas at the end of cooking.

Savory Chicken Breasts

Reviewed: Jul. 25, 2011
BOOM! This was toooooo good! I seasoned the breasts first with onion and garlic powder, as well as poultry seasoning. I used fresh, smoked swiss from the deli and used a little over an ounce (about a slice and a half) per breast. I used a 1/2 cup of evaporated milk with 1 can of cream of chicken and 1 can of cream of mushroom. I like a lot of "gravy" and this was plenty! For the topping, I used one whole box of stuffing. Now, the stuffing wasn't as "done" as I had expected it to be, but I didn't care that it was a little mushy. The flavor of this dish was outstanding. Perhaps I should I have broiled it for a few minutes at the end? I served with fresh, steamed broccoli. I can't wait to make this again. I will be adding fresh mushrooms next time around!

Chicken with Tomatillos and Poblanos

Reviewed: Jul. 25, 2011
This was good and even better the next day. The only thing I did different from the recipe was adding a can of corn and a serrano pepper. Also, I used both red and yellow bell pepper. I served with chicken-flavored rice and refried beans. The next day, we ate all three wrapped up in fresh, flour tortillas.

Jen's Heavenly Egg Salad

Reviewed: May 4, 2011
Heavenly it is indeed! I had been craving egg salad for a long time and what's a better way to use up all of those Easter eggs??? I didn't have Dijon mustard or a lemon on hand. I substituted spicy brown mustard for the Dijon and 1.5 T of lemon juice for the fresh lemon. I was a little worried about the spicy brown mustard, but all turned out just fine. It was fantastic!! I served on toasted wheat bread with lettuce and had kettle chips and fresh fruit on the side. Next time I will be doubling or tripling the recipe! MMMM MMMM MMMM

Pork Chops in Red Sauce

Reviewed: Feb. 2, 2012
Will definitely make again! I used boneless pork chops. I sauteed the onions with fresh mushrooms before adding them to the meat. For the sauce, I added dijon mustard and dried basil. Next time I will double the sauce - it was delicious! I will also use another onion and maybe more mushrooms. The chops were ready a little after one hour in the oven. The smell while they were cooking was heavenly. I could NOT wait to take them out and eat!

Iowa Pork Steak

Reviewed: Feb. 2, 2012
Wonderful. It made my house smell so good. I sauteed sliced onions and fresh mushrooms in olive oil before adding to the crock pot with the meat. I used a 15 oz can of beef broth instead of the water. The meat was fall-off-the-bone tender and very tasty. Served with butter and parsley egg noodles and green beans. I can't wait to have leftovers tonight!

Hot Dog Men

Reviewed: Sep. 8, 2011
This gets 5 stars because they are just TOO FUN. Why had I never heard of this before? I, personally, did not eat the little hot dog man, but my son really got a kick out of it. This was fun to make together, too. Cool idea!!!!!!

Mad Dogs

Reviewed: Sep. 8, 2011
Meh. Were they good? Yes. Anything with bacon and cheese is good to me. Were they something to rave about? No. As you can tell, it is really just a glorified and extra-fattening hot dog. Now, this is not to say that I won't make them again... ;-)

Simple Spiced Rice

Reviewed: Aug. 16, 2011
Where has this recipe been all of my life??!?!?! I was so impressed with the way this turned out. I rinsed the rice real good and soaked it for 30 minutes before cooking. I used chicken broth instead of water. OH. MY. GOODNESS. This is the best rice I have ever made and the smell.....oh! My house smelled wonderful! I served this with the Chorizo and Lentil Stew recipe from this site. I highly recommend this combination for an Indian-inspired meal! I will be making this rice over and over again.

Chorizo and Lentil Stew

Reviewed: Aug. 16, 2011
What a great meal I was able to make! I served this with the Simple Spiced Rice recipe from this site for a Indian-inspired dinner. I used Cacique Beef Chorizo, chicken broth instead of water, added 1 tsp of garam masala and no salt or pepper. I loved the texture, taste and spice! Thanks!

Easy Sausage Gravy and Biscuits

Reviewed: Apr. 8, 2011
This was my first gravy-making attempt and it couldn't have gone any better! All I have to say is: WOW. I used a whole roll of sausage and threw in a healthy-sized glob of butter before flouring. This is now my go-to recipe for gravy! No more envelope mixes for us!

Crescent Bacon-Cheddar Pinwheels

Reviewed: Dec. 8, 2010
To me personally, these were just so-so. However, many people at the event for which these were prepared raved about them! I guess I was expecting more flavor. They looked nice and were easy enough to make. I added a tad bit more cheese and bacon. Definitely stick the rolls in the freezer a bit before attempting to cut them. I will make them again, but will either use more ranch or cream cheese instead of the ranch. I need to figure out something to give these a little more of a "kick". Perhaps I will come up with a dipping sauce of some sort for these.

Easy Chicken Enchiladas

Reviewed: Jan. 3, 2013
These were more like baked burritos to me, but tasty nonetheless! I had to make changes based on ingredients on hand - namely the beans (used chili beans with liquid), cream cheese (only had half the amount), and tortillas (Mission jalapeño cheddar as well as Mission herbed spinach - halved them since they are so large; I used a total of 5 tortillas). I added a can of green chiles to the filling mixture. They turned out great! I will make these again. Quick and easy!

Rich Italian Sausage and Potato Soup

Reviewed: Jan. 13, 2012
I am not really a fan of Italian sausage, but I did enjoy this soup. I used spicy sausage and about 3 slices of regular bacon. I would have liked less Italian sausage and more bacon, personally. I julienned the potatoes, used two bouillon cubes and added a little pepper. The julienned potatoes turned out to be a great idea as I could thicken up the soup a bit by crushing them. I will make this again with regular Italian sausage and less, adding more bacon.

Curry Chicken Salad

Reviewed: Jan. 13, 2012
A different but tasty chicken salad. Like many others, I also added more curry and much more mayo. I used less celery - only 1 stalk. Should have done two. I think four would have been overkill. We enjoyed this - thank you!

Slow-Cooker Posole

Reviewed: Aug. 8, 2011
So quick and easy as well as very tasty! I was a little short of 2lbs of pork, so I made up for it with chicken breast. Except for that and using more salt, I made as directed. There is no doubt that I will be making this again and double, at that!

Broccoli and Cheese Brunch Casserole

Reviewed: Jun. 20, 2011
I made this for my dad on father's day yesterday. Everyone seemed to enjoy this, including myself! It was very simple to prepare; I prepared it the night before, refrigerated it overnight and popped it into the oven the next morning. I followed the recipe as written, except for that I sprinkled green onion on the top over the tomatoes. The next time I make this, I will be adding sauteed onions and mushrooms to the broccoli/sausage mixture, as well as a little more sausage. I would like more tomatoes on the top, so either I will add more slices or dice a few romas and put them on there instead. Thanks for this great recipe!

Pasta with Asparagus

Reviewed: Apr. 7, 2011
I made this as a side dish for grilled mesquite chicken breasts and it paired perfectly. I used TWO tbsp of olive oil, added 2 minced garlic cloves and used an entire can of chicken broth. I let the asparagus, mushrooms, garlic and pepper flakes simmer for a while and added a little bit of onion salt. I added two good-sized tbsp of Country Crock to the pasta before mixing with vegetables. Once mixed, the pasta absorbed almost all of the broth and left the perfect amount of "sauce". I always have a way of taking a healthier recipe and making it not-so-healthy. At any rate, it was fairly light and quite delicious. I will make it again.

Hungarian Mushroom Soup

Reviewed: Jan. 4, 2013
DE. LISH. Wow, what a classy, elegant soup (if you can call soup those things...). I made the recipe as instructed EXCEPT I only had salted butter, beef broth, and dried parsley (used 2 tsp) on hand. I should have left that tsp of salt out at the end, but it was still wonderful, just a tad bit on the salty side. I can't wait to make this again with chicken broth and a less salt. I think that all of the ingredients worked together well; the amount of dill and lemon was fine for me. Next time, I may add a little garlic to the onions and use different mushrooms. Honestly, I could have eaten the whole thing by myself, but I held back. I have some left for tomorrow. I am anxious to see how it tastes the next day. I am glad that no one in my house is a fan on mushrooms!

Coconut Flan

Reviewed: Jan. 13, 2012
This turned out perfect, even though I left out the regular milk (oops - was too excited!). I added two teaspoons of coconut extract. I think one would have been enough for my personal taste. This was good, but I still like "original" flan better.
