Slow Cooker Buffalo Chicken Sandwiches

Reviewed: Jul. 11, 2010
Amazing recipe, and so easy -- definitely part of our normal dinner rotation! I tend to leave the cooker for closer to 10 hours, so I add chicken stock just to cover the top of the chicken (otherwise it dries out a lot). Awesome recipe!!!

Breakfast Sausage

Reviewed: Feb. 4, 2008
Absolutely *delicious*! Didn't have cloves, so left that out, and substituted a little oregano for the marjoram. Turned out amazing. Frying took a long time, though, and obviously is not the healthiest -- I think next time I'll try broiling them, or using the George Foreman.

Chicken Divan

Reviewed: Feb. 5, 2007
*UN*believably tasty. I made minimal alterations: I used one can cream of mushroom and one can of cream of chicken, and only about 3/4 cup light mayo -- think I'll cut that down to 1/2 next time since it had no shortage of creaminess. I also used about 2/3 of an 8-oz package of fresh mushrooms -- didn't bother sauteing before hand, and they were great. The water chestnuts really make it -- very nice crunch. My only really issue was that it seemed like not quite enough broccoli/chicken for a 3-quart dish... I ended up using a 2-quart dish and had sauce left over (although the dish had no lack of sauce).

Gourmet Mushroom Risotto

Reviewed: Nov. 19, 2006
UNbelievable! i used only a half pound of portabellos to save $$ and a full pound of white mushrooms, and i think it was definitely fine without the extra half-pound. took me longer than anticipated (maybe 45 minutes for all the broth to be absorbed), but ENTIRELY worth it. highly recommended.

Downeast Maine Pumpkin Bread

Reviewed: Oct. 18, 2006
really amazing! followed reviews and made the following alterations: used half unsweetened applesauce, half oil, used splenda for baking in place of sugar, used half whole wheat flour, and used 2 1/2 tsp pumpkin pie spice and 1/4 tsp cinammon in place of the spices. when i floured the pan, i also added a little cinnamon sugar, which added a slight sweet crunch. overall, turned out moist and delicious! my only complaint is that i wish it tasted more like pumpkin! i might try to use more pumpkin next time.

Linguine with Clam Sauce

Reviewed: Apr. 30, 2006
WOW! very impressed, especially given how fast it went together! as some of the reviews suggested, i halved the oil, added 2 tbsp sour cream, and 1 tbsp cornstarch. i also used 4 cloves of garlic - can't go wrong with garlic. turned out amazing!

Real Homemade Tamales

Reviewed: Mar. 5, 2006
great recipe! as first-time tamale-makers, we were a little afraid, but they turned out great! a few notes: -we used the premade trader joe's carnitas ($3.99 for 12oz) and had MORE than enough meat. i can't imagine if we'd had the entire 1 1/4 lbs! -even after soaking the corn husks for an hour, we still had problems getting them to stay folded - toothpicks worked great to keep them shut during the steaming. -the california chile was really mild - we think we'll try a spicier type next time. all in all, great recipe!

Lentil Soup II

Reviewed: May 10, 2005
Simple and delicious! I'll probably mix up the seasoning a bit next time as it was a tad on the bland side, but still wonderful.
