Slow Cooker Chicken and Dumplings

Reviewed: Jan. 26, 2010
What an excellent, and easy!, way to make chicken and dumplings! I added a bag of frozen peas and carrots and a cup of frozen corn to make it more of a one-pot meal. I also used less than one can of biscuits. I cut the biscuits into quarters and layered them on the top (FYI, it took an additional three hours on low to cook the biscuits) - it came out more like a chicken pot pie than chicken and dumplings, but it's absolutely delicious. Perfect and filling for a cold day!

Barbeque Halibut Steaks

Reviewed: Jan. 25, 2010
The sauce gave this mild-tasting fish a nice flavor. And it's not too sweet (even my bf, who only likes spicy, loved this dish). I marinated the fish for an hour, and then dumped it all into a baking dish and baked for 40 min at 350 (didn't feel like messing with the grill). Excellent recipe.

Robin's Quinoa with Mushrooms and Spinach

Reviewed: Jan. 25, 2010
This is an excellent base recipe, although I added several more spices to give it more flavor. One thing to note: you must use wine that you would drink. The quinoa and mushrooms really soak up the flavor of the wine, so if you don't care for the taste of the wine, you won't like this dish. I have also used this basic recipe to add other things, such as sweet potatoes, to my quinoa. Excellent healthy and filling dish.

World's Best Lasagna

Reviewed: Jan. 7, 2010
This was awesome! It did take a while to put together, but it was easy and well worth it. I cooked the sauce on the stove, as directed, but I also put the entire thing together and put it in fridge overnight (made on Sunday, ate on Monday). My bf enjoyed it so much that he had two servings and took some more for his lunch the next day! Another FYI, we are not big meat-eaters, so I used Morning Star veggie crumbles and Trader Joe's meatless Italian sausage. It's a super easy way to get some extra veggies in. Thanks for the great recipe, I will definitely be making this again!

Jamie's Minestrone

Reviewed: Dec. 30, 2009
This soup was absolutely delicious. My mother loved it and demanded the recipe. I also couldn't believe how easy this was to make - I will definitely be making this often throughout the cold months.

Creamy Peanut Butter Fudge

Reviewed: Dec. 30, 2009
This fudge was delicious, creamy, and fairly easy to make. It came out on the first try, which is not something I can say for all fudge recipes. I will definitely keep this in my folder.

Cool Whipped Frosting

I absolutely love this frosting! It is so creamy and not super sweet. Super easy and always comes out great. I really love it on cola cake.

Chantal's New York Cheesecake

Reviewed: Dec. 29, 2009
It doesn't get any better than this! This cheesecake always comes out perfect - I follow the recipe exactly, leave it in the oven and DON'T TOUCH IT for 6 hours and it will never crack. Everyone loves this, it is my bf's fave!

Big Soft Ginger Cookies

Reviewed: Dec. 10, 2009
I just love these cookies! They have the perfect amount of spice - not too much so they are accessible to everyone. They also stay soft and chewy (with a bit of a crisp on the outside). Mine did not come out looking like they do in the picture, instead they looked more like ginger snaps, but they were still delicious. I will be make these again and again!

Easiest Peanut Butter Fudge

Reviewed: Dec. 10, 2009
This fudge was very good and came out perfect on my first try (I am not always successful at making fudge). However, I must say that "World's Best Peanut Butter Fudge" (also on this site) is still my favorite recipe.

Cookie Balls

Reviewed: Dec. 10, 2009
These are quite tasty. They are very rich, so you can't eat too many. I made them with the holiday candy cane Jo-Jo's (Trader Joe's version of an Oreo). Although these cookie balls are easy to make, the process is quite time-consuming.

Cake Mix Cookies VIII

Reviewed: Dec. 5, 2009
Wow! These delivered super moist, chewy cookies. I used a spice cake mix, substituted the butter with 3/4 C pumpkin puree (may explain why they are super soft, but I like them like that!), and omitted the chocolate chips. I topped the cookies with a bit of cream cheese frosting (from this site) that I thinned with some milk. Super easy and super delicious - I will definitely be making these often!

Slow Cooker Turkey Breast

Reviewed: Nov. 30, 2009
This turkey was fall-off-the-bone too-die-for! Very delicious and very easy. I had a 5.5lb bone-in turkey breast. I coated the inside of my slow cooker and the outside of the turkey with butter, stuffed the cavity with onion and garlic, and let it go. After 7 hours in the slow cooker, I took the turkey out and roasted it for 30 min to crisp up the skin. Everybody loved it! I will definitely be making turkey like this again.

Double Layer Pumpkin Cheesecake

Reviewed: Nov. 28, 2009
This was pretty good. I only gave it 4 stars, because I followed the recipe and baked it in a pre-made graham cracker crust, and the texture of the cheesecake was different from those made in a springform pan. Also, I did not think that the bottom "plain" layer stood out - it might as well just have been blended with the pumpkin. Also, this makes a lot of filling, I ended up overfilling my pie crust (because I only had one and I didn't want leftover filling), which left cracks on top. I wasn't too worried about the cracks, I just added a dollop of Cool Whip on top and no one noticed (that being said, I did not cover the whole thing with Cool Whip because I think that would have been too much). Still a good recipe, and may be great with a few alterations.

Eggplant Parmesan II

Reviewed: Nov. 28, 2009
I do not normally care for Eggplant Parmesan, but this was amazing! I made this dish because my boyfriend requested it for Thanksgiving. I did not bother measuring out the sauce and cheese, instead I just went by how much I wanted to put on (I ended up using way more than the recipe called for). I also followed the advice of others and sweated out the eggplant before proceeding with the breading (excellent suggestion), and I baked the breaded eggplant in the oven for about 15 minutes to let them really crisp up - I think that is what makes this recipe. The eggplant is not totally soggy and bitter, and everyone at my Thanksgiving dinner (even the turkey eaters) really enjoyed it. This one is a keeper.

Chocolate Truffle Cookies

Reviewed: Nov. 26, 2009
HOLY COW! That was my reaction the first time I bit into one of these cookies. I can not begin to tell you the accolades I have received over these little gems. Rich, chewy, chocolate-y; these cookies are amazing. I will definitely be making these a lot more often! Thanks for one of the best recipes I have ever tried!

Iced Pumpkin Cookies

Reviewed: Oct. 28, 2009
I made these today and they were great! I followed a few of the other reviewers' suggestion and substituted half of the white sugar with brown sugar. I also did not make the icing because it sounded very sweet, and that's not what I wanted. I flattened the cookies with the bottom of a glass dipped in sugar. The cookies are very cakey, moist, and delicious. I'm sure they will be a hit for Halloween.

Fantastic Black Bean Chili

Reviewed: Oct. 16, 2009
This is a great recipe when I want to include a lot of beans into my diet. Sometime I will substitute one can of black beans with one can of kidney beans just to add a new taste. Super easy and very good.

I make this chili all of the time - it's so good and such a welcome change from traditional chili recipes. Modify it based on your own tastes. Thanks for the great recipe!
