Slow Cooker Pinto Beans

Reviewed: Jan. 3, 2015
I made this recipe for a vegetarian church potluck today; at first, I thought I'd take it home, because it didn't look appetizing -- the overnight cooking and extended time on "warm" made it look dark and questionable, but it was gone, baby, gone! Because it is an all-vegetarian potluck, I omitted the ham and lard, used MorningStar beef-like crumbles, and kicked up the flavor by adding McKay's Beef-Like broth/seasoning. I used half a green bell pepper, saving the other half for our salads. Husband loved it, picky Daughter had two servings, and I even got to scrape the crockpot and have a spoonful over my rice. I plan to make this again for my little family, keeping it vegetarian. Normally I do not like pinto beans, and usually only have them refried. This is definitely a keeper, and I know it'll be good for church potlucks. Thank you for sharing!

Meat-Lover's Slow Cooker Spaghetti Sauce

Reviewed: Sep. 15, 2014
I've only EVER had spaghetti sauce from a bottle; this is my first attempt at a homemade spaghetti sauce, and I can tell you it is now my GO-TO recipe! I doubled it, thinking that is the only way to have enough sauce -- wow -- totally unnecessary! My 8qt pot barely could contain it all, and that's after adding 1 diced bell pepper and 8oz of sliced mushrooms. After we eat this tomorrow, I'm going to add the second container of mushrooms. Thank you for sharing! No need to add sugar, we liked it as is, and since it's sitting in the fridge overnight, I know the flavors will blend nicely, and not have that weird after taste I've become resigned to.

Cinnamon Sour Cream Biscuits

Reviewed: Aug. 24, 2014
I just made this today; I barely had 1 C of sour cream in my container, didn't have margarine on hand, so I used butter -- forgot to purchase raisins, so I used dried cherries (chopped them up) and sliced almonds I found in my cupboard as well. Didn't alter anything else, and had to add 1 Tbsp of flour at the end when I kneaded it. Cut it w/a biscuit cutter, and popped them into the oven. Out came 15 rounds of Oh-My-Deliciousness! Drizzled on some icing at the end while still warm, and Daughter pronounced it "VERY GOOD" after one bite. Thank you so much for sharing -- this will be my go-to recipe for breakfast/snacking goodness. I'm off to eat another one after I send this. YUM YUM YUM!

Key Lime Pie VII

Reviewed: Aug. 3, 2014
I had an old store purchased graham cracker crust lying around, so I decided to see what I can do to use it up; I found this really simple recipe, and after reading the reviews, decided to go for it. I went to three (3) different stores to source key limes -- no luck, so I settled for regular limes. It took five limes for me to get 3/4 C. of juice, and thanks to other reviewers, I knew to use two (2) scans of sweetened condensed milk. Acid test -- we just had it for dessert; Daughter said "its GOOD, Mama!", and Husband practically inhaled it. I'm going to savor mine after sending this review. Thank you for sharing this gem of a recipe -- I like hitting the "easy" button when it comes to cooking. This recipe delivers!

Dessert Crepes

Reviewed: Mar. 15, 2014
I'm making this as I review; tripled the recipe; so I could freeze some later as other Reviews suggest; even Mother, who is very particular, proclaimed them "Very good . . . not too sweet". Despite tripling the recipe, this doesn't have an 'eggy' taste to it. Tomorrow I am going to get my veggie fillings together; Daughter will appreciate the break from her pancake breakfasts. I haven't experimented yet with additions to the batter (i.e., vanilla, etc.), but look forward to doing so. This is my basic, go-to recipe. Thank you for sharing!

Bread Pudding II

Reviewed: Mar. 2, 2014
As another Reviewer did, I used the heels of a loaf of wheat bread, and some stale burger buns I have on hand; I used half cranberries, and half golden raisins, added a splash of grade "B" maple syrup, and followed the directions. It smelled wonderful coming out of the oven, and will be dessert for tonight's dinner. Thank you for sharing this recipe. It is a keeper, and will be used often for potlucks, and to put stale/misc bread bits to good use.

The Best Meatballs

Reviewed: Jan. 26, 2014
Never going back to pre-packaged! Thank you so much for sharing this recipe; today I tried it out -- I did everything, except I used beef, turkey and lamb; added the anise seed as one Reviewer suggested, doubled the recipe, and baked @ 325F, instead of fry. Can I say this is absolutely amazing?! I have 2qt and 2 gal sized freezer bags, full off the little balls of deliciousness. I used my cookie scoop, as I couldn't find my little meatballer tong, and it still turned out very well. Thank you again for sharing!

Yummy Sweet Potato Casserole

Reviewed: Nov. 28, 2013
I made this for the first time ever, and the family LOVED it! Did as other reviewers recommended, and roasted/baked the sweet taters till the natural sugars released. Also kept the topping as is, and for our family of seven, it was enough with left overs to divvy up. Delicious and thank you for sharing!
