Pot Roast with Balsamic Onions

Reviewed: Jan. 24, 2014
I made this for the AR Group. It was good and easy. I had modified some by using a bottom round roast and cooking slowly in a Dutch oven on the stove top. I don’t recommend using this cut for this recipe. I’ve cooked roast beef regularly for more than 20 yrs., so I’m sure it was the cut which is very lean and it did slice well and make good leftover sandwiches. It did not fall apart like a chuck will. All other ingredients and steps were followed as per recipe until I tasted the broth after it had cooked for 6 hrs. The broth was very tangy for us, so I added 1 tsp molasses because I thought a little sweetness might help and it did. The sauce was a dark deep rich color that I want to experiment with. I think next time I’ll definitely add minced garlic, mushrooms and carrots.

Roast with Gravy

Reviewed: Nov. 3, 2013
I used chuck roast, and it turned out very tender. I didn't have beef bouillon, so I added 1/2 tsp liquid smoke and 2 tsp soy sauce. It made a very good gravy. After browning the roast, I put it in the slow cooker for about 6 hours.

Bar Cookies from Cake Mix

Reviewed: Oct. 30, 2013
My son said these were the best. As others had commented, I chose to alter by using 2 eggs, 1/4 cup water, 1/2 tsp vanilla, and baked for only 18 minutes since my little oven cooks very fast. Also my cake mix that I just happened to have was 16.5 oz., I added the entire 12 oz bag of chocolate chips and it turned out very well.

Witches' Hats

Reviewed: Oct. 27, 2013
Cute and simple, my daughter and daughter in-law thought it was a clever idea. I put them in lunch boxes for a cute seasonal treat. I did not use honey just frosting and I opted for orange frosting.

Beef Tips

Reviewed: Oct. 27, 2013
Good comfort food, very tender, I served it over rice. I substituted 1 can of beef stock for part of the water and used a can of mushroom soup instead of the dry gravy mix. It would be good with mash potatoes and biscuits too.

Blackened Fish

Reviewed: Oct. 27, 2013
very good alternate method from the usual grilled or batter fried fish that I most often cook. My picky family liked it, so I'll be cooking this especially when I'm needing to use the easiest method.
