Slow Cooker Creamy Potato Soup

Reviewed: Nov. 30, 2011
Like some others, I also had to tweak this recipe. But after doing so, it turned out really good. First of all, I didn't cook my bacon and onions together. I did my bacon first and set it aside. Then cooked my onion in the drippings for just a minute or two to let them soak up the flavor. I did NOT drain the grease. (This southern girl never wastes good bacon drippings. Paula Dean would be proud.) To keep the bacon from getting soggy, I didn't add it until I added the cream. Secondly, I read several complaints that it was too watery. So I only used 1 cup of water which took care of that problem. Thirdly, I read several complaints of it being too bland. I added 2 stalks of celery and 2 cloves of garlic to the mix. I didn't use the dill because my hubby isn't a big fan. After the taters got soft, I added the cream, then mashed them with a potato smasher and mixed them with a hand mixer (strongly recommended). At this point, you can taste-test it. I felt it was really bland and needed waaaay more salt. I didn't measure how much I used. I just kept putting more in there until it tasted right. Probably about 2 talbespoons. It needs more pepper too and I just used black pepper instead of white. I still felt it needed something so I added a little garlic powder and some onion flakes to the mix. Finally, I felt it was getting there, but that it needed more bacon!! I cooked more bacon to crumble on top of each bowl just before serving (about one and a half pieces per person).

Candied Carrots

Reviewed: Nov. 21, 2011
Yummy + easy = my kind of recipe. I added just a dash of nutmeg. I also used regular carrots instead of baby carrots because, to me, they have more flavor. I kept mine on the stovetop until the sauce was slightly thickened. Hubby and kids loved them. Thanks for sharing.

Yellow Squash Casserole

Reviewed: Nov. 3, 2011
Yummy goodness. The only thing I did different was to melt the 2 T butter and stir it into the topping, rather than dot it on the top. I must have put more than half of the topping in the mixture because there wasn't enough so cover the whole top of the casserole so I just added a little more crackers and cheese (and butter) for the top. This is better than my usual recipe, the one I got from my mother-in-law. Shhhh! Don't tell her I said that.

Baked Pork Chops I

Reviewed: Oct. 27, 2011
I've made this several times and it is consistent, comes out great every time. I think I use a little more garlic powder and seasoned salt than is called for, although I don't actually measure. I sprinkle each piece individually with the shaker, applying a full coat to each piece. The specified length in the oven is for thick chops. If you have thin chops you will need to decrease the cooking time. My husband and I both love these, and the kids do too. Thanks for sharing!

Joy's Prizewinning Trifle

Reviewed: Oct. 22, 2011
Delicious! I don't really care for angel food cake so I substituted it for a boxed French Vanilla cake. For each layer, I put the cake on the bottom, followed by the fruit, then the pudding on top. I used the bananas and pineapples for the bottom layer of fruit, raspberries and blueberries for the middle layer of fruit, and strawberries and kiwis for the top layer of fruit. The bowl I used was larger than a regular trifle bowl, so I ran out of pudding after the first two layers. I didn't have any more sour cream, so for the top layer I mixed some cream cheese with cool whip and vanilla pudding. I sprinkled some more strawberries and kiwis on top along with some toasted almonds. I did the almonds over the stove top in butter, about five minutes until golden brown. Then put them on a paper towel to soak up the excess oil. My family devoured this dish. Thanks for sharing!

Double Chocolate Mocha Trifle

Reviewed: Oct. 22, 2011
Delicious! I used a bag of Heath Bar bits that are already chopped up to save time. I completely covered each layer, using the whole bag. That is the only change I made. My family devoured this. Thanks for sharing.

Creamy Spinach

Reviewed: Sep. 5, 2011
In a word... YUMMMMMY! All I added was 1/2 t garlic powder. I also added all the bacon drippings in instead of removing with a slotted spoon. (I'm from the south and not afraid of a little extra bacon grease.) I mixed the Parmesan cheese in instead of sprinkling on top, using about 1/4 cup. This was fantastic! I was looking for a recipe like my sister's who would not share her secret. Found this one and think it's actually better. Nanny nanny boo boo!! The kids liked it too. Thanks for sharing. It's a keeper!

Homesteader Cornbread

Reviewed: Aug. 25, 2011
I followed the recipe exactly. I made this for a family dinner and everyone liked mine better than the other cornbread someone else had made. Great consistency, fluffy and tasty.

Garlic Chicken

Reviewed: Aug. 25, 2011
I followed the recipe exactly. In a word...YUMMY! I served it with mashed potatoes, steamed broccoli with cheese and Mad Hatter Salad (also on this website). Dinner was a real hit. The hubby and kiddos liked it too.

Zesty Slow Cooker Chicken Barbecue

Reviewed: Aug. 10, 2011
Yummy! I followed the recipe exactly. The BBQ sauce- Italizn Salad Dressing combo sounded wierd to me but it tasted great. I used Sweet Baby Ray's BBQ sauce. I also used fresh chicken breasts instead of frozen, cooked on low for 3 hours, then shredded the chicken and continued cooking on low another hour or so. Easy as pie! Thanks for sharing. This one's a keeper.

Mad Hatter Salad

Reviewed: Aug. 10, 2011
Delicious! You can half the recipe to feed a few or double it to feed a crowd. Everyone who tries this asks me for the recipe. A big hit at potlucks and the leftovers are still crunchy the next day. This is much better than regular cole slaw. Thanks for sharing!

Slow-Cooked Chili

Reviewed: Apr. 5, 2011
Very tasty!! I made minor changes, hardly worth mentioning. I only used one onion (purple) because that's all I had. I used one can of dark red kidney beans and one can of pintos, and added a can of green chili peppers. Will make this again for sure.

Italian Spaghetti Sauce with Meatballs

Reviewed: Mar. 1, 2011
I recently made this for a family gathering and got many compliments. A couple of people even said these were the best meatballs they had ever had. The only changes that I made were to add some more herbs. I added basil and oregano to the meatballs. Then added extra basil, oregano, and some Cavender's Greek seasoning to the sauce. Served with salad and some Rosemary Olive Oil bread. Yummy!! Thanks for the great recipe!

Slow Cooker Chicken and Dumplings

Reviewed: Feb. 11, 2011
YUMMMM!!! The only things I added were some carrots and celery, and a little thyme, sage, paprika, & pepper. I used chicken broth instead of water to cover. I didn't have any refrigerated dough but I had some frozen. I just let them thaw, then pressed them out and cut them into small pieces. I wasn't too sure about this recipe at first, since it didn't look very homemade. But it is really good and it gets extra points in my book for being so easy and because my two kids both loved it. Thanks for sharing!!

Authentic Louisiana Red Beans and Rice

Reviewed: Jan. 28, 2011
The people on here who substitute smoked sausage for the andouille and then complain that it isn't spicy enough are killing me! You've got to use the andouille if you want the extra kick! Also, to make it a little spicier, I throw my veggies in the pan after I brown the sausage. Give them a little andouille grease bath before adding them into the beans. Also, try using Weber brand "N'Orleans Cajun" seasoning if this dish wasn't hot enough for you. It is H-O-T Hot! I substituted 2 (15 oz) cans dark red kidney beans (making it not so authentic). Only used 1 cup water. Added 1 can chicken broth and 1 can tomatoes. Scaled down cayenne pepper by half because of the little ones. Awesome recipe!!
