Slow Cooker Thanksgiving Turkey

Reviewed: Nov. 24, 2005
This was a very moist turkey and I loved not having to baste it every so often. The only thing I wasn't crazy about was that we used a skin-on turkey and I had to put it in the oven to brown so it looked nice on the platter. But, it was worth it for the ease of the rest of the time! Thank you for the recipe!

To Die For Blueberry Muffins

Reviewed: Jun. 2, 2005
These muffins are excellent. We liked that they weren't overly moist like a lot of muffins can be. My only change next time will be a bit less sugar in the topping - it was too sweet for us, but that's a subjective thing and not at all a problem with the recipe itself. Thanks!

Carol's Butter Pecan Cake

Reviewed: Sep. 14, 2005
This cake was great - easy to make, not too sweet and the exact right balance of moisture. I can't comment on the icing because I made it for a class and had to use the Wilton icing, but I'll definitely make the cake again and again.

Cinnamon Bread Delight

Reviewed: Oct. 2, 2005
This was nice, but it didn't wow anyone. I made it as muffins instead of bread as we had company leaving early and the muffins obviously cook in less than an hour. The taste was nice, the flavor was strong without being overbearing, but they were plain. For what they were, I give them five stars as there was nothing wrong with them. But, I think I'd try them again with something mixed in (pecans or dried apple bits) and maybe with a streusel topping.

Chewy Chocolate Chip Oatmeal Cookies

Reviewed: Oct. 5, 2005
These were fantastic. I used old-fashioned oats and they are very chewy with lots of texture - just what we love. The only thing I will use differently next time is to use mini chocolate chips as the chocolate flavor is nice, but I'd like to focus more on the oatmeal and less on the chips. Thanks Amy!!! Edited to add: I've made these many, many times and I like that you can vary your ingredients a bit - they are very good (but very moist) with only whole wheat flour. I now leave the chocolate out entirely and use toasted hazelnuts!!! Mmm

Snickerdoodles V

Reviewed: Oct. 5, 2005
These were great and my toddler loved to help "smoosh" them. I might try another 1/2 t. of cream of tartar next time as I like that flavor in Snickerdoodles - but otherwise no changes! Thanks!

Oatmeal Pancakes II

Reviewed: Oct. 30, 2005
These are delicious! We used old-fashioned oats because that's what we had on hand and added the zest of an orange, chopped & toasted pecans and craisins. Really, really good! And I had the dry ingredients in the blender last night and the wet in a bowl in the fridge. This morning I blended quickly and they were on the table 15 minutes after we woke up! Thank you - really, really good!

Sparkling Holiday Jam

Reviewed: Oct. 30, 2005
This is amazing!!! I love it and it's beautiful to boot! I didn't follow this exactly - I used 7 c. of fruit total - probably 5 c. strawberry/2 c. cranberry, 7 c. of sugar, one packet of pectin, the juice of two tangerines and one lemon and the zest of the tangerines. The flavor is outstanding. Mine is just coming to cool now (I did a water bath), so I don't know how set it will be with the extra acidic juice, but we use jam a lot in plain yogurt or on pancakes so we don't mind if it's a bit thin. Really, really outstanding!!! Added the next day: the jam is cooled and is definitely set like a jam - not thin at all. And really, really delicious!

Pumpkin Butter

Reviewed: Nov. 7, 2005
I can't personally comment on taste as I made this for a get-together and I don't like pumpkin, so I haven't tried it. But it smells exactly like a pumpkin pie and I'd make it again and again just for the way it has made my house smell.

Slow Cooker Stuffing

Reviewed: Nov. 24, 2005
I'm not sure that I should review this recipe as I changed a lot - but since we did use the base I guess I will. We used the butter, onion, parsley, bread crumbs, broth and egg. To this we added a 1/4 c. dried cranberries, 1/4 c. diced (cooked) pork tenderloin, 1/4 c. raw cashews, 1/4 c. roasted almonds and 1 t. each Emeril's Essence, Montreal chicken seasoning, celery salt, marjoram and onion powder. I used a mix of homemade cornbread and homemade whole wheat bread for the bread cubes. Really, really exceptional! Thank you for the recipe!

Monkey Bread I

Reviewed: Dec. 1, 2005
This was great and almost exactly what I remember my Grandma making when we were kids. I used 3/4 c. of unpacked brown sugar and it was still very sweet. I also had to bake it at least 15-20 minutes longer. But, it was delicious and easy and made my house smell so cinnamon-y!!!

Sarah's Applesauce

Reviewed: Dec. 1, 2005
I love this applesauce and have made it many times now. My favorite apples to use are Granny Smith as I really like the tart w/the sweet. And, this makes the house smell so good!!! Mmmmmmmm.

Make-Ahead Mashed Potatoes

Reviewed: Dec. 5, 2005
We haven't eaten these beyond tasting yet - but just the tastes were fantastic! We made a double batch (lemme tell ya' - that's a lotta potatoes) to freeze for our big Christmas dinner. We'll defrost and heat in the oven just like it calls for. Yum! Thanks!

Homesteader Cornbread

Reviewed: May 3, 2006
A delicious cornbread!!! I'd only ever made cornbread from a box before and was a bit intimidated by this but this was fantastic! My only change was that I used buttermilk instead of milk as I was out of milk. The taste was a little too tangy right out of the oven, but by the time we ate it at dinner the tanginess was gone and it was a moist, sweet cornbread. Thanks!

Eggplant Parmesan II

Reviewed: Oct. 12, 2006
This was just sublime! So good. I didn't change much - I did salt and let the bitters drain out and then rinse and squeeze out each slice of peeled eggplant. I baked my slices at 450 for 15 minutes on each side on a pan sprayed with olive oil. They were crispy when done and delicious. This was better than what I've eaten out at a lot of restaurants and now that I can make it healthily at home, I will! Thank you very much!

Jalapeno Popper Spread

Reviewed: Jul. 28, 2007
This is SO good!!! A big hit at a little get-together last night - thanks for sharing the recipe. I used 4 fresh jalapenos (seeded and chopped) and it was just right - a bit of kick for those who like it yet not overly strong for those who don't. Sooooooo good!

Warm Mushroom Spread

Reviewed: Jul. 28, 2007
This recipe is not even fair! Too, too, too good. As suggested in some other reviews, I made it ahead of time and then placed in the fridge until I warmed it to serve. I made a double batch and 14 women ate most of it. The little that remains is preciously guarded for steaks tonight and maybe biscuits in the morning. Too delicious!!!

Blueberry Crumb Bars

Reviewed: Aug. 13, 2007
Oh man these are so good!!! I did use butter instead of shortening as that's what we had around. My house smells good, the kids LOVE them and it's fruit, so it's healthy, right? These are divine!!!

Eclairs II

Reviewed: Jun. 2, 2005
These were excellent and very easy to make. I wanted very small eclairs, so I put the dough into a gallon-size plastic storage bag, cut off a corner and piped them out. In the end I had more than 20. I did the same with the chocolate and was able to drizzle the frosting over in a very pretty way. Thanks for sharing.

Naan

Reviewed: May 17, 2005
These are really great. I don't think they're exact replicas of the naan I've had at restaurants, but that's about the tandoor and not the recipe, necessarily. We enjoyed these tonight with gobi masala curry and we'll eat them tomorrow with lamb souvlaki. Easy to make and very good. Thanks very much, Mic!
