Easy Slow Cooker Chicken Wings

Reviewed: Feb. 6, 2007
Great sauce. I agree w/other reveiwers that it would be good on legs. I put the wings in the crock pot on high for four hours, removed the wings to an oven dish, added some corn starch to the sauce to thicken, poured it over the chicken in the pan, then roasted them in a 300 degree oven for an hour or so to help the texture. They were a hit at a Super Bowl Party. Oh, a side note, most frozen chicken wings are ice glazed, and if you thaw them or rinse the glaze off before using, your recipes will be MUCH less watery.

Grilled Bacon Jalapeno Wraps

Reviewed: Oct. 13, 2006
We make these often at home. As another user suggested, I like turkey bacon better, but some of my family prefers regular. 1/2 a piece of bacon works great, and I like to freeze the constructed peppers (spread out on a cookie sheet so they don't stick together) prior to grilling, so the cheese doesn't melt as much while the bacon is cooking.

Cranberry Sauce II

Reviewed: Nov. 22, 2006
I used Splenda instead of sugar, and since some other reviewers complained that it didn't thicken properly, I added about a Tbsp of cornstarch to the cold water befor mixing. It turned out great, and to top it off, it's ZERO Weight Watcher's Points!

BBQ Chicken Sandwiches

Reviewed: Feb. 8, 2006
I put 3lbs of boneless skinless chicken breast in a crock pot, then put all the sauce ingredients on top of that. I cooked it on low for 8 hrs then shredded the chicken pieces. It was a huge hit with the whole family. I served it with homemade coleslaw, in which I substituted half of the vinegar in the sauce for tobasco, to give the sandwiches some zing. Next time, the only thing I will change, I will use tomato sauce instead of ketchup, for the same results with a lower price tag.

Nuts and Bolts Party Mix

Reviewed: Feb. 25, 2006
This is a very good recipe. I did make some changes to suit my family's tastes. I agree with a previous reviewer that it would probably be too salty for us, so I replaced garlic salt with garlic powder, and replaced season salt with Mrs.Dash Table blend. If one is worried about the oil, I'm sure it would turn out perfectly with Enova oil also. I replaced the pretzel nuggets with goldfish, and kept the slim pretzels called for in the recipe, then omitted the pound of mixed nuts and just stuck with peanuts. I put the dry stuff in a clean paper bag, closed the top, and shook it to mix them up before putting it in the cooking dishes. Then, when it was done cooking, I returned it to the bag and shook it again, to even out the flavors of the two pans.

Caramel Apple Dip

Reviewed: Mar. 5, 2006
This stuff is AWESOME! And super easy too! I will use it for all my get togethers now. Oh, one thing about the recipe though, it says to serve immediately, so I waited until the last minute to make it. I now know though, that it keeps in the fridge for a day or two just fine, with no change in flavor or consistancy.

White Chocolate Covered Pretzels

Reviewed: Dec. 20, 2005
I doubled the recipe and then followed another users idea of adding a little margarine. I put the dish on the table and gave each of my 4 kids some pretzels, wax paper, and a chopstick for removing the pretzels, then let them go to work. It was a great time for all, we enjoyed eating the treats and giving them as gifts, and we've decided to adopt this as a new Christmas tradition. =)

Peach Angel Food Cake

Reviewed: Dec. 31, 2005
This was a perfect recipe to make for our new neighbors. A cake was in order, but after all of the heavy sweetness of the holidays, I wanted something light and yummy. I made two loaf pans so I could taste test it before giving as a gift. I took a picture and submitted it, so hopefully, you can see what it looks like soon. =)

Cajun Sweet Dough

Reviewed: Feb. 26, 2006
This made GREAT turnovers! I followed the recipe exactly as directed, EXCEPT, I had no butter on hand, so I used a stick and a half of margarine instead. It is a sticky dough when you remove it from the fridge. To remedy this, only roll half the dough at a time, and use a medium-heavily floured surface to roll it out, keep your rolling pin floured well also. If it doesn't work out well on the first roll, knead the extra flour in that stuck to it, then try again, it will be easy to work with then.I made small turnovers, about 4" across when unfolded. They baked nicely at 350º for 23-25 minutes.

Hard Candy

Reviewed: Sep. 8, 2009
Excellennt. I scaled it back to 12 servings and doubled the flavoring. While it was still hot but touchable, I cut it into strips and twisted it around chopsticks, to make ribbon twists, and they looked great. If it is sticking in your teeth, you didn't let it heat up quite enough, try going all the way to 310 degrees using the (lowish)medium heat. This will normally take 20-30 minutes to heat after the boil is reached. If your burning it, turn your heat down to the low side of medium heat and take your time, it'll come out fine. Good luck!

Dirt Cake III

Reviewed: Feb. 21, 2006
This stuff is AWESOME. I prefer to 'frost' the top with the Cool Whip, instead of mixing it in, but I'm sure it's great either way. Also, the recipe doesn't specify to soften the cream cheese, but if you do it mixes in much easier.

Double Chocolate Brownie Cake

Reviewed: Jan. 22, 2006
My mother in law has been making this cake for years, under the label of "Death By Chocolate Cake". When it is done, we always melt some chocolate frosting and drizzle it on. It is excellent warm from the oven, but personally, I love it best the next day.

Ribbon Salad

Reviewed: Feb. 21, 2006
This was a hit at a dessert banquet. I lightly sprayed my pan with cooking spray and it didn't stick at all. I followed another users suggestion to wait to make the milk until ready to use, and I wish I hadn't done that, because it needed some time to set up. Also, I didn't think it would need refrigeration after the white layer, just the jello, but I was wrong there too. The two times I didn't cool it, the white and color mixed. I waited to make each jello until I was ready to use it, then I dissolved my jello in 1c. of hot water, then added 1/2c. ice water to make it quick set, then fridge for 30-40 minutes, and that worked wonderfully. Even with mistakes, it looked great and tasted good.

Skillet Ham, Cabbage and Potatoes

Reviewed: Jan. 1, 2006
I used one can chicken broth instead of water, and replaced season salt with salt free seasoning (figured the ham and broth would add plenty of salt). It was quite good, we'll make this again.

Boston Cream Cake

Reviewed: Mar. 17, 2006
This recipe was a great hit. When I was leveling off the bottom cake, my husband asked me to carve out some so I could fit more pudding inside. I did, and it was really yummy, the only thing I would suggest is to make sure not to carve to close to the edges so the outside 'wall' doesn't break and the pudding leak out.

Cinnamon Raisin Bread II

Reviewed: Nov. 16, 2005
I did this on the delay timer so the kids would have fresh bread in the morning. I put the raisins in on top, careful not to let any touch the yeast so the fruit sugar wouldn't activate it. The raisins were fine and it was good bread, even better toasted. I would like to add more cinnamon, but it too much could cause the yeast not to rise correctly, and rather than throw the ingredients away, we'll just sprinkle some on the the butter after it's toasted.

Tangy Sliced Pork Sandwiches

Reviewed: Nov. 2, 2005
I converted this to a slow cooker recipe, by combining all ingredients except pork, replacing the cayanne with a whole fresh habanero pepper, and adding chopped onion. I placed the sliced pork into crock, then poured sauce over top and let cook on low for 8 hours. At the end of the day, it wasn't saucy enough, so in the future, I will add some water in the beginning.

White Chocolate and Cranberry Cookies

Reviewed: Feb. 5, 2010
awesome! followed recipe exactly, except used spiced rum instead of brandy. YUM! *update* These were a bit too dry the next day, crumbly. I would not give them as gifts, but they were awesome right out of the oven.

Microwave Baked Apples

Reviewed: Oct. 18, 2009
Pretty good. I followed the recipe except I left the skins on. Glad I did because 4 minutes turned 3 apples into applesauce. Delicious though! Great with Maple Walnut ice cream!
