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!

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!

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!

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.

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!

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.

Cocktail Meatballs

Reviewed: Aug. 31, 2006
After reading the reviews of others, I knew I could take these to a party without "testing" at home first. I used a 2# bag of frozen turkey meatballs and baked according to directions. Then doubled the sauce recipe and put everything into the crock pot on LO. Doubling the recipe means you use 1 bottle of chili sauce and 1 can of cranberry. Wow - so easy and good.

Sweet Potato Souffle III

Reviewed: Dec. 25, 2007
Excellent recipe, just cut the sugar in half. Way too sweet otherwise. Hard to call it a side dish when it tastes like desert. Don't scrimp on the topping. Yum!

Shrimp Fettuccine Alfredo

Reviewed: Dec. 12, 2009
Yum! This was delicious and so easy! Made a slight substitution based on what I had - 1/2 C half-&-half, 1/4 C chicken broth, 1/4 C white wine. 1/2 lb fettuccini was plenty for this recipe. Reminded me of a favorite dish from Shell's seafood restaurant.

Crunch Bar

Reviewed: Dec. 19, 2009
Perfect and so fast and easy to make! Followed recipe using milk choc chips and pecans. Think I will reduce nuts by 1/2 C next time. By the way, 4 oz. saltines is one sleeve. I let the pan cool for an hour or so and then put into the refrigerator for another hour. Lifted a corner edge and started breaking apart. No problem removing from the pan. This recipe will be a family favorite - thanks!

Hearty Split Pea Soup

Reviewed: Jan. 11, 2010
Followed directions except did not bother to boil the water and cooked on LO for 11+ hours (because that's how long I was at work!!). Excellent results! Added a dash of Tabasco and some addtl salt (another 1/2 t atleast) at the end. Used 1% milk, although I think whole milk would have been better for richer results. Thanks for a super easy and flavorful recipe.

Easy Slow Cooker French Dip

Reviewed: Jan. 30, 2010
Made as directed but placed the roast on a bed of sliced sweet onions in the crockpot. Heated a French baguette then cut into serving sizes, split and added sliced beef, onions and provolone cheese. Broil until the cheese melts and then smash together and dunked into the au jus. Just as good leftover. Next time I will try adding some garlic salt.

Easy OREO Truffles

Reviewed: Oct. 25, 2011
Great recipe with a ton of flexibility. I first experienced these at a party where someone made them with mint-filled Oreos - decadent! I substituted choc & white choc almond bark for the baking chocolate. Use a food processor for easy prep - I dumped whole cookies and chunks of cream cheese and it mixed up perfectly. Roll the balls and refrigerate for atleast 1 hour, then dip into melted bar using toothpicks. Easy and elegant. Everyone thought they were store-bought!

Easy Sausage Strata

Reviewed: Dec. 29, 2011
Just the recipe base I was looking for. Perfect for some stale wheat sandwich bread I found in the freezer. Cut bread into cubes while frozen makes it very easy. I used link sausage (removed from casings) because that's what I had on hand. This dish was a big hit at work, baked in a foil 11x7 pan and no clean-up. I can see all kinds of possibilities for variations in the future, but you really can't go wrong with the basic recipe either.

Fresh Rhubarb Pie

Reviewed: Aug. 28, 2007
Perfect pie and couldn't be easier to make! I used a frozen pie crust and it came out beautifully. This is the first rhubarb pie recipe I have tried that was worthy of the rhurbarb. Pie was a bit soupy served warm, but the flavor was excellent. Refrigerated and served cold the next day - just right.

Best Spanish Rice

Reviewed: Feb. 7, 2013
I was looking for a rice side dish to go w/ an enchilada casserole. This recipe was just right and sooo easy! I followed recipe just as directed and it came out perfectly. I think the secret is to use a good chunky salsa. The one I used was med spice w/ garlic. No additional salt needed. This recipe is a keeper for my family.

Slow Cooker Sweet Potato Casserole

Reviewed: Nov. 25, 2014
Just the recipe I was looking for to take to an office potluck. I doubled the recipe and cooked in my 5 qt crockpot (with space left over). Saved a small casserole-sized dish to cook in the oven later. I used a large mixing bowl and electric hand mixer to mash the potatoes and mix with the wet ingredients(easy!). As other reviews recommended, I also doubled the topping. NOTE: Recipe ingredients call for 2t butter but references 2T butter in the directions (you will want to use T). Also sprinkled a dash of nutmeg & cinnamon on topping. Thanks for this easy and delicious recipe. It was was a big hit at the potluck and will go into my permanent file.
