Orzo and Rice

Reviewed: Oct. 15, 2004
We loved this one! I've finally found a use for that tri-color orzo sitting in my pantry. I followed other reviewers advice and used 1/2 chix broth & 1/2 bouillon, added sauteed onions & garlic. A nice change from ordinary rice.

Mini Meatloaves

Reviewed: Oct. 15, 2004
We liked this one. The cheese was an interesting change from my normal recipe. I used leftover sauce from the Tasty Tender Pork Tenderloin recipe (on this site) in place of the ketchup sauce here. Decent subsitute.

Tasty Tender Pork Tenderloin

Reviewed: Oct. 15, 2004
A good way to prepare tenderloin if you don't feel like grilling. I served this with Orzo & Rice side dish and got rave reviews. Even my picky husband asked for more!

Fajita Skillet Supper

Reviewed: Nov. 11, 2004
We liked this one. Something fast, easy and different. I cooked the chicken first, then removed it from pan and followed the directions as written, adding the chicken back in step 2.

Rocky Mountain Stew

Reviewed: Feb. 3, 2005
I was looking for something to do with sirloin tips when I found this recipe. I made the recipe as written, reducing by half for our small family. I had some leftover peas that I added at the last minute. Sounded kind of odd to add peas, but it really was a nice addition. Reminded me of Dinty Moore stew - but fresh! Somehow I didn't have as much gravy as I thought it should. Maybe next time I will add a bit more water... This one was a hit, even with my husband who declared he does not like stew! Will definitely make this one again.

Slow Cooker Pineapple Pork Roast

Reviewed: Feb. 6, 2005
I made this pretty much to the recipe directions except reduced cranberries to 1 C (looked like more than enough to me) and used 8oz. can of crushed pineapple and 8oz. can of chunk pineapple because that's what I had on hand. About 2 hours before serving, I mixed in cornstarch/water to thicken the sauce a bit, thinking it might make a nice glaze and gravy for rice. This worked well. I really wanted to love this recipe but it was just so-so, not too inspiring. I won't be making this one again, but if I did, I'd make sure to add more salt.

Tangy Slow Cooker Pork Roast

Reviewed: Jul. 8, 2005
One word - YUMMY! Even my picky husband gave this one rave reviews. I followed the recipe as written except I used a pork shoulder roast (bone-in) and cooked about 8 hrs. on LOW. Very tender & tasty. Added cornstarch at the end to thicken this wonderful sauce. Think it would be great over brown rice. This one is a keeper. Thanks so much for sharing!

Slow Cooker London Broil

Reviewed: Jul. 14, 2005
I used cream of mushroom with roasted garlic soup and added sliced onions in the bottom of the crock before placing the meat. Added a handful of baby carrots about 1 hour before serving (perfectly done, not mushy!). Served with brown rice to make use of the gravy. I wanted to love this one, but even with the tomato soup, it was ordinary. Seems that slow cooker beef always has that same stringy texture. Might try this again with a pork roast.

Spinach-Gorganzola Salad

Reviewed: Nov. 1, 2005
This sounded so yummy, BUT my husband and 2 guests didn't love it. Made according to directions except cut back to 1/2 lb. bacon (still too much). Overload on calories and time-consuming, I don't think I'll make this recipe again. With some overhaul, I think the recipe has potential - using the same basic ingredients, cutting down on the measurements and lightening up on the dressing (2/3 C of olive oil is excessive).

Pork Chops with Dijon-Dill Sauce

Reviewed: Nov. 21, 2005
I followed suggestion of a previous reviewer and pan-fried chops seasoned with bouillon and seasonings. Then removed the chops and made the sauce in the same pan. Didn't have yogurt so substituted sour cream - rich and yummy! Served the sauce on the side and also used it for dipping cooked veggies (broccoli and asparagus works great!). We loved this one. A really easy way to dress up ordinary pork chops and quite a treat for low-carb diets!

Pan-Fried Asparagus

Reviewed: Nov. 22, 2005
Great flavor but it seemed like way too much butter/oil for 1/2# asparagus. I didn't have coarse salt, so used 1/4 t of regular. Will definitely use this recipe again, only increase asparagus to atleast 1#. Think this would be great way to prepare broccoli too. Thanks for sharing this very tasty recipe, Kim.

Drip Beef Sandwiches

Reviewed: Nov. 22, 2005
Browned in a fry-pan and then dropped in the crockpot as several others have suggested. I used a 3# roast and cooked on Low for 10 hours. I'm not a big fan of crockpot beef - seems like it's always dried out and stringy. This was definitely an exception. Excellent flavor and still very moist. I loved the spices in the coffee filter, so easy! Next time I'll probably decrease the amount of pepper as 2 T was a little intense for the smaller roast. This one is a keeper. Thanks for sharing, Tammy!

Tamra's Microwave Tilapia

Reviewed: Nov. 29, 2005
Was looking for something fast & easy to do with tilapia and this fit the bill. Substituted 1/2 t dried tarragon for the fresh. Fish was a tad overcooked, maybe 3 minutes would have done it? Overall, the recipe worked but we just didn't care for the taste. The cider vinegar seemed to overpower the dish. Maybe this should be left off entirely? It's easy, but this one won't be a do-over at our house.

Mediterranean Tuna Salad

Reviewed: Dec. 1, 2005
We thought the salad combination was quite good and very pretty. I'd add a sliced boiled egg next time. Not so wild about the dressing. Found it to be a little too lemony for my taste. Next time I think I'd make my own oil & vinegar combo.

Layered Salad

Reviewed: Feb. 4, 2006
I followed the recipe except I used a bag of salad mix (iceberg & carrots mostly) in place of the lettuce. Used only 1/2 small onion (green onions would be good too). Don't leave the water chestnuts out - they make that extra "crunch" you need. Took this one to a ladies gathering and got rave reviews and requests for the recipe - it was soooo easy. This goes into my permanent file. Thanks for sharing!

Slow-Cooker Chicken Tortilla Soup

Reviewed: Feb. 4, 2006
As other reviewers have suggested, I used boneless/skinless chicken breasts and let them cook w/ the soup. Chopped and returned to the soup shortly before serving - melt-in-your-mouth tender. Used homemade chix broth in place of the canned. Served with a dollop of sour cream and some shredded Mexi-cheese, w/ crushed tortilla chips on top (no need to make your own) Easy and FABULOUS! Saving the leftovers in the freezer to enjoy another day.

Easy Lemon Cake

Reviewed: Mar. 20, 2006
I made this one for a birthday and it got rave reviews. I used a fork to poke lots of holes in the cake before covering w/ glaze. Followed another reviewers recommendation and added a dab of butter to the glaze, along with some freshly grated lemon rind. Fresh squeezed lemon juice made it all the more tasty. I think this one is even better the next day, moist and more lemony. Next time, I will make it the day before serving. Good & easy!

Balsamic Vinaigrette

Reviewed: Mar. 20, 2006
This is one of my all-time favorite dressings. I use the regular (not white) balsamic vinegar and fresh black pepper. Sometimes add fresh basil or rosemary if I have it. Simple and so delicious!

Spicy Mexican Salad

Reviewed: Apr. 13, 2006
Took this one to a potluck and it went over big. Used only 1/2 bag corn chips and that seemed like more than enough. This one gets soggy fast, so don't prepare in advance. I just prepped the ingredients and then tossed when I arrived, adding the chips at the very last. A very hearty salad. Add some taco meat and it becomes a worthy main dish.

Salsa Chicken

Reviewed: Apr. 13, 2006
My husband wasn't excited about the recipe - until he tried it! We thought it tasted like chicken enchiladas minus the tortillas. Great idea for low-carb menu. Sour cream is the crowning glory - don't forget this finishing touch. Yum!
