Slow Cooker Chicken Taco Soup

Reviewed: Feb. 23, 2015
Love this recipe. We make it on a regular basis. I add in fresh spinach and chopped carrots. I also find the low sodium Rotel to give the perfect kick.

Honey-Garlic Slow Cooker Chicken Thighs

Reviewed: Feb. 23, 2015
It's ok. It's sweet and the sauce is a little strong. I made it as described and served over white rice. Probably won't make it again.

Lasagna Roll Ups

Reviewed: Feb. 4, 2014
The concept is great! I use this for the extra cheese mix I have after I make my lasagna. My lasagna mix is different, but a great idea for left over cheese mix.

Onion Chicken in Balsamic Sauce

Reviewed: Feb. 4, 2014
Pretty good, but the basalmic flavor is strong. I used vegetable stock (b/c that is what I had). I also used chicken breast instead of the legs to decrease the fat content. Other short cuts included minced garlic instead of cloves. Lastly, I sauteed some spinach into it at the end (so it doesn't burn). I served this over bow-tie pasta. It is a lot of acid with the vinegar, and sundried tomato. I added some parmesan cheese to help cut all the acid as it cooked.

Pear Fritters

Reviewed: Feb. 4, 2014
The fritters were difficult to make. I had issues with the batter being thin. Plus I wanted more sweetness in the batter. I'm not sure how to fix that, but I would add seasonings in the batter. Also, I did not carmelize the pears. This may have been the issue, but I find it hard to believe that it would have improved the batter issues that much.

Triple Berry Crisp

Reviewed: Feb. 4, 2014
Dangerous recipe! It is great if you have a dinner party. Throw it together quick before you serve your food, and put it in the oven while you eat dinner, then its ready! I keep frozen fruit in my freezer so I can make this on the fly. I only use frozen fruit and there is no need to measure fruit. Just fill the bottom of your dish with fruit. I would not recommend melting butter. I tried this twice and it's a horrible mess, plus it doesn't spread evenly. It just gets concentrated in one area. Keep your butter at room temp, or a little cold. Also, 2 cups of white sugar is alot with the fruit (and it's natural sugars). Just sprinkle a little sugar on top of the frozen fruit. Some reviewers mentioned putting the oat mix on the bottom, and then layering the fruit. This doesn't work well because it doesn't crisp, and turns mushy. This is delicious...enjoy! But you have been warned...it's a slippery slope once you start to make it...

Cherry Chocolate Cake

Reviewed: Feb. 4, 2014
This is my favorite cake! I do use the dark chocolate cake mix and canned cherries on top. I put just a small amount of the canned cherry juice into the mix to make it extra moist. I love to put this cake on my cake plate because it's just so darn pretty.

Microwave Oven Peanut Brittle

Reviewed: Feb. 4, 2014
No changes to the recipie and this is fantastic! I line the cookie sheet with parchment paper, and it works perfectly when removing the brittle. Great last minute gift if someone stops by with cookies at Christmas!

Holiday Egg Nog

Reviewed: Feb. 4, 2014
This is an annual make every Christmas. I skip the salt, but add in cinnamon instead. I use skim milk to decrease calories, and I think it tastes great...whole milk isn't needed. Especially if you serve with whipped cream and your alcohol of choice. Very good!

Arkansas Green Beans

Reviewed: Feb. 4, 2014
Made this at Christmas, and was the favorite of most guests. This marinade would be great with meat, and other veggies. I imagine we will be using it for kabobs in the summer. Like others suggested, I used only 1/2 cup of brown sugar. I thought it could be less, but my guests like the sweetness. I steamed green beans in advance, and cooked the bacon in advance in a pan. We had ran out of soy sauce, but had packets from past Chinese take out. Seven packets later, I had a great marinade to pour over the green beans. Will definitely make again, but maybe experiment with the proportion of brown sugar. Thanks for the recipe!

Potato Latkes I

Reviewed: Feb. 4, 2014
So delicious! We made these for Christmas. Like others, I didn't have peanut oil and used oil I had (canola). I also didn't have a cheesecloth, so I used my hands to try to push out as much liquid as possible. I also used only 2 eggs as a binder and it worked well. Served with chives, grated cheese, bacon, and sour cream. Very good!

Marinated Scallops Wrapped in Bacon

Reviewed: Feb. 4, 2014
Made this for Christmas and they were well received. I'm not a scallop person but my husband is. I skipped the syrup to decrease calories and it still was good. It's a little messy trying to wrap and cut the bacon, but will make again

Chicken Cordon Bleu I

Reviewed: Oct. 22, 2009
It's so easy...and my boyfriend was so impressed. My dirty secret is I used just some packaged lunch meat for the ham...he couldn't tell! You can use fancy ingredients...but you don't have to. Simple ingredients still impress!!

Artichoke Chicken

Reviewed: Nov. 24, 2008
Great! I didn't have enough parmasean (only 1/2 cup) and I added lots of garlic (b/c we love it!) and oregano. Delicious! I just did lite mayo and it turned out great. Sour cream wasn't needed. I did add bread crumbs like suggested and cooked for 40 minutes to brown. I also used whole wheat spaghetti noodles under. There wasn't a lot of sauce, but it added to the meal and felt very light. We loved this...it will become a staple. Very quick, easy meal and delicious! I plan on wowing guests at our next dinner party. Thank you for sharing!!

Old Fashioned Peach Cobbler

Reviewed: Jun. 4, 2008
After everyone raved about the crust, I was excited to try it! But I was disappointed...nothing tremendous. Maybe I did something wrong, but I did follow the recipe. Also, the filling just wasn't great....it was ok...but not great. Not sweet enough for me, and it had too much of a citrus taste. Not my favorite, but not awful.

Hot Artichoke and Spinach Dip II

Reviewed: Jan. 3, 2008
Really good. I read the reviews about it being thick, so I added 3 heaping spoonfuls of sour cream and it had a great consistancy for tortilla chips. I also didn't have fresh garlic, so I omitted the garlic salt (added just a couple shakes of reg. salt) and 1/8 tsp of dried garlic = 1 clove. We like garlic so I added 1/2 tsp total and it wasn't overpowering. Also had no romano cheese, so added 1/2 cup parmesan & mixed in some mozzarella (some used to cover top). Brought it to a game night and it was DEVOURED...my boyfriend keeps talking about it. It's similar to restaurant dip. It's a keeper! Thanks!
