Slow Cooker Baked Potatoes

Reviewed: Oct. 25, 2013
I LOVE wacky recipes and this caught my attention. I placed the potatoes on their ends and turned them after about 6 hrs to soften the other ends. They were quite large and took 7 hrs. They came out great. Perfect for space and/or heat saving in the kitchen. I miss them being dry and crispy on the outside so I may experiment with putting them under the broiler for a couple of minutes.

Slow Cooker Apple Cider Braised Pork

Reviewed: Oct. 14, 2013
I had such high expectations for this recipe. I made it for our Thanksgiving dinner. The vinegar was too overpowering. I even added cream at the end to try to mellow it. It was more of a sweet 'n sour type flavour. I am used to my guests raving about my cooking, but the only raves I got were for the mashed potatoes. I followed the recipe exactly. Sorry :(

Fish Fillets Italiano

Reviewed: Jan. 11, 2011
This turned into Greek Fish Fillets for me. I added Kalamata olives, dried oregano, salt and pepper in the sauce, then sprinkled crumbled Feta cheese over. I'm very excited about the flavor.

Cookie Jar Sugar Cookies

Reviewed: Nov. 21, 2010
I added a couple Tbsp heavy cream to bring the mix together. It rolled out beautifully without refrigerating it. Scraps pulled together great too. I just wasn't happy with the taste which was frustrating because of all the work the kids did cutting out shapes and decorating. It was a fun project though, and the recipe made a huge amount.

Pastry for Double Pie-Crust

Reviewed: Oct. 25, 2010
Not sure what happened to me but the dough cracked a lot as I was rolling. Couldn't even gather together the remaining dough to re-roll a second time. Ugh! Didn't work out :(

Butter Dip Breadsticks

Reviewed: Jun. 12, 2010
I rolled out the dough and cut strips using a pizza cutter. Leaving the strips on the board I brushed them with melted butter then sprinkled with parmesan, garlic seasoning and paprika for color. It was easy to pick them up and twist. They were excellent. Even sent them to a potluck! Serve them standing in a vase for Wow-factor.

Beefy Chinese Dumplings

Reviewed: Apr. 26, 2010
I had to adjust the seasoning a bit and I used 1 lb of beef and one package coleslaw mix. It made 3 dozen with leftover filling. I cooked them potsticker style, fry 1 dozen at a time on one side only in peanut oil till brown, add 1/2 cup water and immediately cover till water evaporates. Amazing! I found a Korean BBQ sauce that I diluted for a dipping sauce. The party guests went crazy for them!

Bacon Roll Ups II

Reviewed: Apr. 26, 2010
I was so-so about these, although I can say anything wrapped in bacon is good! I did however get positive feedback at my party. I used plenty of garlic-herb cream cheese for each and made sure to bake them till crispy.

Crispy Vegetable Pakoras

Reviewed: Apr. 26, 2010
I had to adjust the spices for my taste, I needed much more. I chopped carrot, cooked spinach, cauliflower, peas & corn and onion. I found an Indian Pakora dipping sauce at the grocery store and it all came together fantastically. They got raves at my party.

Amish Friendship Bread II

Reviewed: Apr. 2, 2010
My sister-in-law was leaving on a trip the day before making the bread so gave me the starter. I knew I wouldn't have time for another 5 days so I fed it. Her's was in a zippy bag so it was easy to keep. I was at a loss and left the bag open, didn't want an accidental explosion. By the time I was ready, the mixture was VERY sour-smelling but figured I'd try anyway. Also had to use Butterscotch pudding mix. I wasn't sure how much starter to use so I guessed at 1 1/2 cups. Well... it WORKED!!! Very tasty, not sour, not too sweet. I'm quite amazed. The recipe I got didn't use applesauce and "extras" so I'll try that next time.

Ken's Perfect Hard Boiled Egg (And I Mean Perfect)

Reviewed: Apr. 1, 2010
I'll have to agree that the salt and vinegar are not necessary. My Dad taught me to run the cooked eggs under cold water until cool enough to handle. Pour off all the water, then shake the pan vigorously until all the shells are well-cracked. Most off the shells will fall off by themselves! Also I only boil them for 5 mins then remove from the heat and let stand for 10 mins. Never had a green egg!

Caprese Appetizer

Reviewed: Dec. 26, 2009
My sister-in-law made these for Christmas. Instead of chopping the basil she threaded a leaf between the cheese and tomato. She also used halved baby boconccini which is softer than regular mozzarella. It tasted like summer!

Grandma's Corn Chowder

Reviewed: Nov. 20, 2009
It needed that little extra something so I chose to season with chicken stock powder instead of the salt. I also used 1 cup half and half and one cup low fat milk. I was a great texture and overall tasty. It's perfect on this damp, cold day!

Oatmeal Dinner Rolls

Reviewed: Nov. 3, 2009
Mmmm, we're eating them right out of the oven! The humidity in the air plays a role in how much flour you need so I had to add 5 1/2 cups. It was still a sticky dough so I left it in the standup mixer bowl to rise. After the first rise I poured it onto a well floured counter and kneaded in just enough extra flour to handle. I used as little flour on my hands as I could to roll the balls. The rolls came out remarkably light and fluffy. Oh, and I left out the white sugar as I didn't want these too sweet. I will definitely make these again.

Never, Never Fail Pie Pastry

Reviewed: Nov. 2, 2009
This is great! I needed a pastry to go on some Turkey Pot Pie filling, so I made this recipe leaving out the sweet stuff and added some butter. I cut triangles of dough, then baked them on a cookie sheet at 375F for about 15 mins till golden. I then placed them on individual portions of pot pie (restaurant trick). The pastry is flavorful and wonderfully flaky.

Curry Pumpkin Soup

Reviewed: Oct. 31, 2009
This IS really good! I used 6 cups of chicken broth to get the right consistency, then with some soup I stirred in cream and with some I stirred in fat-free plain yogurt. Also, I used Jamaican curry powder to give it a little Caribbean flavor.

Easy Morning Glory Muffins

Reviewed: Oct. 25, 2009
These are great! I had to leave out the coconut and nuts for the kids, and finely chop the raisins. I also substituted 1/2 cup of flour with whole wheat and 1/2 the oil with fat-free plain yogurt. Like others, I just couldn't bring myself to use all the oil. These turned out fantastic and I was surprised they are not too sweet. I can't wait to sneak them into the kids' lunchbox.

One-For-All Marinated Beef

Reviewed: Jun. 25, 2009
I really was looking forward to this since there were so many great reviews. I did sirloin kebabs but all I tasted was orange. They browned really nicely on the grill, though.
