Awesome Slow Cooker Pot Roast

Reviewed: Jul. 9, 2014
I've always told my boyfriend that I'm not a good cook which is sort of true. I decided to surprise him with this since it looked simple and it completely blew our minds away. I took some suggestions from the reviewers. I only had a 2 lb. pot roast which I quickly floured, seasoned, and browned on a skillet before putting it in the crock pot. I added some beef stock to the pot and played around with the time since it was a smaller roast. About 2 hours before I thought it would be done I tossed in some small potatoes and baby carrots. A whole meal in one pot. I took the juice left over and heated it on a small saucepan with a little bit of cornstarch to thicken it to gravy. I cannot express how easy and delicious it turned out even for someone who cant make rice. :/

Chocolate Flan Cake

Reviewed: Jul. 20, 2014
Super moist and delicious! Made this just like the recipe said and it came out amazing. The only change was I only left it in the over for 1 hour and 30 minutes and it was more than ready. I had not problem getting it out of the pan. Definitely recommend eating it chilled so the flan is firmer. My boyfriend doesn't really like chocolate cake but for some reason he has not been able to stop eating this one. Turns out he loves flan too :)

Pineapple Upside Down Cupcakes

Reviewed: Jul. 9, 2014
Turned out delicious and moist!!! Followed the recipe with the first batch (only had a 6 muffin pan) and I put too much batter in it. With the next batch I only filled them up just a bit over half way and they came out perfect. I would recommend that you let them sit for a couple hours before you eat them. I ate one as soon as it cooled off enough and was disappointed because I didn't really like them. My boyfriend came in after his shift and ate one and was absolutely raving about them. I thought he was just being a nice supportive boyfriend but after I tried another one it changed my mind. Don't ask me why but they tasted a million times better!

Scallops with White Wine Sauce I

Reviewed: Jul. 9, 2014
This sauce has now become my staple! My boyfriend calls it "My Sauce". I do add some minced garlic with the shallots, I add chicken stock to make more and tend to add more heavy cream than what the recipe calls for. I don't use all the butter it calls for and add a tiny splash of lemon juice. I can honestly say I am not a good cook (I cant for the life of me make rice and im Mexican) but this comes out so delicious my BF has told his friends about it. We use the sauce on several other dishes and it works great!

Shredded Beef Enchiladas

Reviewed: Jul. 9, 2014
I made the meat in the crock pot instead like some of the reviews said to do and the meat came out absolutely incredible! I was eating it before I even got around to assembling the enchiladas. I'm giving it only 3 stars because once I made the enchiladas I did not like them at all. What I couldn't get past was the sour cream mixture. I followed the recipe but it just didn't work for us. Im keeping it because of the meat recipe but wont be making the enchilada sauce.
