Stuffed Mushrooms with Swiss Cheese

Reviewed: Nov. 10, 2007
MmmMmmmMmmm - these were REALLY good! I made a partial recipe (3 mushrooms) because that is all I had leftover from another recipe (and my husband hates mushrooms,so they were just for me) so I think some of the amounts were off (too much butter) and they were STILL awsome! The one thing I would change is the salt and pepper - I felt it wasn't needed at all (but I'm not a salt person). I also used half and half because I had no cream, and it seemed to thicken just fine, but it was a very small batch. I can't wait to make the full recipe. Very easy to make, too!

Dragon Dippers

Reviewed: Oct. 18, 2007
these were very tastey and easy to make! out of everyone who tried these, my 2 year old was actually the biggest fan. i even made her some with cinnamon sugar topping instead of the chili powder mix, but she liked the chili ones better (go figure!). i'll be making these again, and have passed the recipe on to friends and family.

French Onion Soup III

Reviewed: Jun. 15, 2007
This was really not bad, but I would have to agree with other reviewers that the recipe calls for too much water (and I used 1/2 cup less than called for). I had to give it 3 stars because when I tasted it after it was prepared per the recipe is was really bland, and I don't even salt my food normally. It was just missing 'something'. After trying to figure out what I had on hand that might work (and even adding salt) I finally added chicken bouillon (didn't have beef) and that did the trick. I will make it again, but I will use less water, maybe even none, and double the beef broth instead.

Pretty Chicken Marinade

Reviewed: Jun. 11, 2007
My husband and I both loved this - even my picky 2 year old ate it without hesitation. We can't wait to try this for steak nachos - the flavor will be perfect. We are not salt people, but used reg. soy sauce because it was all that we had (just used a little less), and we didn't think it was too salty... Thanks for the easy, flavorful recipe! UPDATE: This is still our go-to recipe for marinade!Last night, we didn't have time to defrost the chicken and marinate it. So, I put 1/2 recipe together in the crockpot, put in 2 frozen chicken breasts and cooked on HI for two hours (turning them over at about an hour). We finished off the chicken on the indoor grill - it was awsome!

Inger's Spaghetti Sauce

Reviewed: May 19, 2007
Great sauce recipe! I must admit that I haven't ever made it with all of the veggies (husband isn't a veggie guy...) but whenever I just can't stand the thought of sauce from a jar, this is the recipe that I always go to, and that rates it 5 stars in my book. It just has that 'authentic' taste. Thanks for the great recipe!

The Best Meatballs You'll Ever Have

Reviewed: Dec. 31, 2006
These were really great! Super moist and full of flavor. I didn't add the crushed red pepper because I just don't like it, and I was out of croutons, so I did a mix of Italian style bread crumbs, crushed veggie Ritz crackers and veggie chips that I got in a Christmas basket. Other than that, I followed the recipe pretty closely, including the sautee. After I browned them to the point of crispy, I turned the temp down to Lo, covered and let them finish their time, and then they went right into the sauce for about 4-5 hours. My husband used them for a Meatball sub the next day! Thanks for the recipe, I'll be making these again today to put in the freezer, so we can get at them any time we want!

Slow Cooker Chicken with Mushroom Wine Sauce

Reviewed: Mar. 5, 2006
This was a really great base recipe to play with! I made some changes, only due to what I had on hand, but we liked it so much, that I think we'll continue to have it that way...First, you definitely need to double the ingredients for the sauce. I used one can Cream of Chicken, one can Cream of Broccoli (that's all I had), doubled the other ingredients (minus mushrooms), added 1/2 packet dry onion soup mix (as others suggested) and also added a bag of mixed frozen veggies for the last hour of cooking. The chicken was melt in your mouth (perfect for my one year old) and when served with baked potato and salad, was a filling meal! Other reviewers also suggested serving over pasta, and we may try that next. Thanks for the recipe!

Slow Cooker Roast Beef

Reviewed: Dec. 4, 2005
Wonderful roast, and really, really easy!! The only complaint that I have about this recipe is that it came out a little salty. I never even salt my food, so I may just be overly sensitive to it. I added veggies for the last couple hours of cooking, and that made it a meal.The roast fell apart as I was taking it out (just they way I like it!). My husband woke up at 2am wanting dinner right then, the house smelled so good! I passed this recipe on to my mom the next day, and she made it using red wine instead of soy sauce, and she loved it. I'm going to try it her way next time just for another option. Thanks for the great, easy recipe!

Day Before Mashed Potatoes

Reviewed: Dec. 4, 2005
I made these for Thanksgiving dinner, and they were really great. I made them same-day as others had suggested, and let them heat in the crockpot on 'warm' until dinner. I think that is the way to go,as they were already drying out by the time we packed up the leftovers, but still great reheated the next day. I did make a few changes. I added extra cream cheese, 1/4 cup milk and 1/4 cup of water from the pot they were boiled in (I read about that in another recipe)during the mashing process. I mashed them in the crockpot, thinking I was saving myself time (I ended up making a big mess, I wouldn't do it that way again). I also added butter on top while they warmed, and stirred it all in at the last minute before serving. I also skipped the onion powder because one reviewer stated that they tasted like sour cream and onion chips, and that didn't seem appropriate for thanksgiving dinner. I will definitely make these again, next time I will make the recipe as is, just not for a big dinner until I know what it tastes like. I will also continue to tweak them for my family's taste, but all in all, a really good recipe and I'm glad that I tried it for my first attempt at Thanksgiving mashed potatoes!

Baked Salmon II

Reviewed: Oct. 30, 2005
LOVE THIS! Easy and oh so tasty, I would give this recipe 10 stars if I could! Anyone who doesn't like this recipe did something wrong when they prepared it. I have made this dozens of times, and loved it every time. I have also passed it on to many people and gotten BIG thank-you's the next day! Great served with a big salad, veggies on the side, or simply with garlic bread. I will make this recipe over and over again, and I will continue to pass it on to my friends!
