Slow Cooker Turkey Breast

Reviewed: Nov. 23, 2006
Seriously - this was wonderful! The turkey was so moist I didn't need a knife to cut the meat. Yeah, it was a little more salty than I cared for but that can be dealt with by using less onion soup mix and/or substituting herbs as a rub. I have no complaints, this was perfect. I have a 3.5 quart crock and a turkey breast that was just shy of 4 pounds. It barely squeaked in, I was a little worried the crock wasn't big enough but took a chance and am thrilled with the results. I'll definitely make this again.

Big Soft Ginger Cookies

Reviewed: Jan. 1, 2007
These cookies are fabulous, even with my mistakes and omissions. You can tell how often I bake when I say I thought I had margarine and cloves, but of course, didn't. So no cloves at all and the margarine turned into butter flavored Crisco (how I had that and not margarine I have NO idea!) and the cookies were still wonderful. I'll definitely make these again, with the proper ingredients and I can only guess how much better they will be. Will try it with orange juice too.

Soft Oatmeal Cookies

Reviewed: Jan. 6, 2007
Pretty good recipe, DH loves it but I'm not overly fond of oatmeal cookies as a rule so it's hard for me to say for sure. Most definitely soft and moist, I don't think they're going to last very long. I made 2/3 the recipe plain with no add-ons but added semi-sweet chocolate chips to the remaining 1/3. Pretty good too. Edited to add: On the second day, the cookies were MUCH better. Suddenly I could taste the oatmeal (which I think is what I was missing before) and the texture and everything was much better. Changed to five stars from four.

Snow Flakes

Reviewed: Oct. 28, 2007
I just received my cookie press on Friday, this is the first recipe and the ONLY one I'll use. The taste is phenomenal and I doubt I could improve upon it much. I didn't have orange zest so used a half tbsp of orange juice - probably could have added more but am not about to blame the recipe for that. These cookies are just perfect and it was all I could do to keep from making a second batch just to get past the learning curve of a new cookie press. Fabulous recipe, thanks so much for sharing!

Chewy Caramel

Reviewed: Dec. 23, 2007
Fabulous recipe and very easy, especially for my first candy making experience. DH thinks it's good enough to sell. This recipe makes a lot of caramel, much more than the 32 servings given in the recipe guide. Not a bad thing but be prepared. Will definitely make again.

Licorice Caramels

Reviewed: Dec. 30, 2007
Pretty good licorice - says the woman who doesn't like licorice. So it must be good. Made my batch exactly as the recipe states, however, I would not recommend pouring into baking dish lined with buttered foil. Not unless you enjoy picking bits of foil out of your candy. Otherwise, this was great... I mean, really good. DH loves it.

Slow Cooker Chicken and Dumplings

Reviewed: Oct. 10, 2006
Pretty darn good. I used boneless chicken thighs rather than breasts and they were so tender they shredded with the gentle pressure of a fork. After reading the reviews I used cream of chicken and cream of celery (both fat free) soups, and added dried sage and only one tube of biscuits. Next time I may omit the biscuits entirely or by half again as it was a lot for two people. Planning on adding baby carrots and potatoes next time too. Definitely a recipe to repeat and a good one to build off of for different flavors in a pinch.

Slow Cooker Chicken Stroganoff

Reviewed: Nov. 1, 2006
Pretty good, we enjoyed it. I used boneless, skinless chicken thighs and omitted the butter (I'm on WW) for FF chicken broth. I'd like to make it a bit more tangy but otherwise it was excellent. I'll definitely make this again.

Julia's Easy Slow Cooker Chicken

Reviewed: Nov. 8, 2006
Pretty darn good! I scaled it down for two and added a little chicken broth (maybe 1/2 cup) as my crock tends to get a little more hot than I'd like when cooking for a long time. I started this at 7:30 on low and we ate when I came home by 6:30. A LONG time cooking but it held up very well. Will definitely make this one again.

Slow-Cooked Meat Loaf

Reviewed: Jan. 21, 2007
This is good. I used herbed stuffing mix (about half a small box) rather than cubed bread after reading it was a little bland. Next time I'll mix ketchup throughout for a bit more flavor. Otherwise this was moist and just as good as I'd hoped. Certainly an easy way to make a meatloaf! Will definitely make this one again.

Cheddar Chicken Spaghetti

Reviewed: Jul. 3, 2007
Really very happy with this and DH liked it too. Usually he doesn't care for anything casserole-like but he approved of this one easily. Yay! Next time he requests I add some diced tomatoes which sounds good to me too. Really very pleased with it all the way around! Thanks!

Apple Cake III

Reviewed: Oct. 13, 2007
Pretty darn good. I added cinnamon, walnut extract and vanilla to a spice cake mix (we didn't have nuts on hand) and two cans of unsweetened apple pie filling after reading previous reviews. Super moist and excellent flavor, I will definitely make again.

Homestyle Turkey, the Michigander Way

Reviewed: Dec. 25, 2007
The turkey was excellent! The white meat was sooo incredibly moist. I'll definitely make the next turkey this way. Merry Christmas!

Banana Banana Bread

Reviewed: Nov. 1, 2008
Pretty good, certainly a breeze to make. I think I should have added another banana or two (I only used 3, not sure what I was thinking) as I would have liked more of a banana kick. I didn't add any spices or vanilla and baked it in a small bundt pan for about 50 minutes. Will definitely make this again when DH forgets to eat bananas. Excellent recipe!
