Famous Meatballs

Reviewed: Aug. 5, 2014
What a hit. I used a whole Green pepper, two small cans of pineapple chunks and one small of crushed (opened by accident, lol). Next time I plan to try fresh pineapple. I mixed some frozen Italian style and traditional meatballs in the slow cooker, about 4lbs worth. Note it takes a long time to cook from frozen, so allow an extra 30-60min if cooking them from frozen.

Touchdown Pizza

Reviewed: Aug. 5, 2014
Tasty and spicy. I modified the pizza "sauce" to Chef Johns Buffalo sauce, then added two TBS of corn starch to thicken (let sit for a couple hours to gel up nicely). I used canned chicken and let that soak in hot sauce for about an hour, and also added diced red onions to the toppings. I baked the store pizza crust alone for about half the time so the sauce would not make the crust mushy. After cooking in the oven, I always broil my pizza for a minute or two to fully brown the cheese on top a little. This was a crowd-pleaser for my family that enjoys the spicier foods. Looking forward to trying with some BBq sauce instead of hot sauce for a lighter spice.

Spicy Hot Chicken Legs

Reviewed: Jul. 7, 2014
It was ok to me, but my guests enjoyed it. I removed the skins as I did not want a lot of fat sitting in the pot for hours. Cooked for about 2.5hrs on high then last 30min on low. The chicken fell apart as I removed it so I ended up having to make shredded chicken instead of drumsticks. That was not planned so put me behind on the rest of the meal. I added some worchestire and vinegar to match Chef Johns Buffalo sauce. Next time, I will either brown/sear the drumsticks and follow other suggestions to crock pot for about 2hrs then bake. Without the extra juice mixed in, it was a little bland. I think browning will go a long way.

Pork Tenderloin Diane

Reviewed: Dec. 2, 2013
Simple and delicious. I forgot to grab the Dijon, so just used the spicy mustard I had on hand.

Pasta with Italian Sausage and Pumpkin Sauce

Reviewed: Dec. 2, 2013
very savory. My wife and I enjoyed it for dinner. This made enough to have leftovers for lunch the next day. I added a pinch of red pepper flakes for a little spice and will use more onion next time.

Cranberry Sauce with Bourbon

Reviewed: Nov. 13, 2013
Bourbon & cranberry converted my mother. My mother swears by and only eats canned cranberry. I used a variation of this recipe and now she makes my version every year. Actually the whole family has stolen it... I used 1 package of fresh cranberry, 1-1/4C of sugar and 1/4C (or more) of bourbon. Since it is usually Thanksgiving, I sprinkle some nutmeg and cinnamon in too. Super easy to make, the house smells great and even the kids loved it.

Renaissance Stuffed Mushrooms

Reviewed: Nov. 13, 2013
Made this last nite and was delicious. As others mentioned a lot extra filling but my wife asked me to make them again tonite. Saute was done in butter, garlic and vidalia onions. Had I mixed this into the cheese filling, I think would have been too much. You do get some of the garlic/onion/butter flavor from the saute. My wife is not a fan of hot sauce and the consistency can use some help. Instead of the port wine, I used about the same amount of soy sauce. Next time I may add a little breadcrumbs to help 'hold together' and a maybe little pineapple for extra sweetness. So many more possibilities I am looking forward to trying with this easy recipe.
