Rump Roast Au Jus

Reviewed: Apr. 30, 2007
This is the BEST crockpot beef recipe I have ever tried. I sub seasoned salt for celery salt and cut back the pepper to 1 tsp. Didn't use cayenne and used 1 1/2 cups water mixed with Lipton onion soup mix. After about 6 hours on low, I slice it (or shred) and put back in the au jus for another hour. I serve it on toasted hamburger buns from the bakery and then drizzle some au jus (just a bit) on the top half of bun. Add provolone cheese and broil for a minute. Serve au jus on the side for dipping!! It is ALWAYS a hit! My picky kids can't get enough!!!**UPDATE* I tried it with the Cayenne and it gave it a nice kick, not too hot! I plan on adding it from now on.

Artichoke Chicken

Reviewed: Apr. 30, 2007
The taste of this dish was FANTASTIC! I increased some ingredients (1 cup light mayo and 2 cans artichokes) and also added about 1/2 c sour cream. The only problem I had was the amount of liquid in the bottom of the pan. Next time I will not only drain the artichokes, but will gently squeeze them in a paper towel to cut down on the liquid even more. Either that or try them on a broiler pan. My kids didn't like artichokes, so they didn't care for it. But if you like artichoke dip, you'll LOVE this!

Garlic Red Potatoes

Reviewed: Apr. 30, 2007
These taste AMAZING, but were a bit too greasy from the butter. Next time I make them I will reduce it, or try using just a bit of olive oil instead. Other than that, these were a GREAT and easy side dish!! My picky boys loved them!

Slow Cooker Chicken and Dumplings

Reviewed: Apr. 30, 2007
WOW!! Was suprised at how good this was! I used a mixture of boneless thighs and breasts, but like the thighs better. I used a family size cream of chicken soup and 1 regular can of chicken broth. 2 cans of biscuits is definitely too much but 1 can may not be enough, probably 1 1/2. I've tried this with the bisquick dumplings too, but I prefer the biscuits. I add the biscuits about 2 to 2 1/2 hours before it's done.

Pork Chops O'Brien

Reviewed: Apr. 30, 2007
My pork chops came out dry, maybe they were too thin. I still gave this 4 stars because the rest of it was really good! I am going to try making it as a side dish without the pork chops next time and just put the cheese on top of the potatoes.

Giant Chocolate Chip Cookie

Reviewed: Apr. 30, 2007
This came out GREAT! Made if for my son's slumber party, OOPS Crashover party (boys!!) and cut it up like a pizza. I did add extra flour because it seemed too sticky. It came out SO GOOD! Make sure you leave the 1 1/2" around the edge because it WILL fill up the pan (used the cheapy pizza pan from Walmart). Now I have to make this for EVERY party!!

Gelatin Spritz Cookies

These were great! I used the lime and raspberry. I used my Christmas gun and made Christmas trees, wreaths and poinsiettas. These are a great, COLORFUL alternative to regular spritz!! THANKS for the recipe!

Cake Balls

Reviewed: Nov. 27, 2007
Soooo simple and inexpensive yet looks like you went all out!! Made these to add to my goody bags last Christmas! Used devils food cake mix with chocolate frosting and chocolate almond bark and sprinkled with chocolate jimmes. I also made a strawberry cake mix with vanilla frosting and vanilla almond bark. These I sprinkled with red and green sugar. Used the toothpick method, and also added a bit of crisco to the almond bark. May try spice cake w/crm cheese frosting and vanilla bark this year! THANKS for the awesome recipe!!

Jam Filled Butter Cookies

Reviewed: Nov. 27, 2007
This cookie was EXCELLENT! So simple yet so yummy... I used sweet orange marmalade in some and blueberry preserves in others (what I had on hand). I then lightly drizzled the cookies with some melted white chocolate chips (can use vanilla almond bark) that I had left over. You could also just dust with a little powdered sugar or leave plain. My kids LOVED the orange marmalade the best! The blueberry was ok, but a little too sweet. Strawberry and raspberry would also be great!

Frank's Famous Spaghetti Sauce

Reviewed: Nov. 27, 2007
This came out great! I omitted the mushrooms (kids don't like them) and ground turkey (because I made meatballs). I doubled the ingredients except gr. pepper, and also added extra oregano and basil. I added 3 bay leaves and 1/4 cup of sugar (helps reduce the acidity of the tomato sauce). Let sit on low heat for quite awhile. Then I added a little water toward the end. AWESOME!

Egg Casserole

Reviewed: Dec. 27, 2007
This recipe was easy. I like the bread better than the ones with potatoes. It did take longer to bake. When I first sliced it, it was still (icky) gooey in the middle. I used 13 eggs (all I had) but probably would've used more if i'd had them.

London Broil II

Reviewed: Feb. 21, 2008
I had 2 london broils, so I quadrupled some of the ingredients, EXCEPT the soy (used only 1/4 c), the salt (used 2 tsp), and only 1 tsp pepper. I added 3 tbsp of lemon juice to tenderize. I also poked them all over with a fork. I marinated for about 8 hours, and flipped the meat 1/2 way through. Grilled on a lower heat for about 8 min's on each side (they were pretty rare this way but that's how we like it!). They came out FABULOUS! My kids said it beat out my sis-in-law's famous london broil which is WAY more complicated! THANKS for our new favorite marinade!

Allie's Delicious Macaroni and Cheese

Reviewed: Mar. 4, 2008
I'm on the fence with this one. Half the family liked it and half didn't. The consistency was great, but the taste was kind of bland (ended up putting on grated parmesan before eating it). I added ground mustard (1TSP) and a little more cheese (I used all shredded). I didn't add the ham. I made a topping out of shredded cheddar and panko bread crumbs and that was the best part! I will make this again, but I think it needs 2 stronger cheeses instead of 2 mild ones. I think maybe I'll try gorgonzola or Vermont Cheddar or even Velveeta in place of the Monterey Jack or Mozzerella.

Daria's Slow Cooker Beef Stroganoff

Reviewed: Mar. 6, 2008
YAAAY! Another keeper!!! I trimmed and sliced up a rump roast that I had (bout 3 lbs) so I doubled the ingredients. I sauteed the onions and garlic a bit before adding. But because I precooked them, the onions almost disappeared into the gravy. The next time I will add the onions half way thru cooking time if I can (or just not precook). I omitted the chives and parsley (didn't have) and I also omitted the water (per other reviews). Next time I will add extra flour (2 tbsp per 1/4 c) to the wine because it could have been a tad bit thicker. I made egg noodles and mashed potatoes (one son doesn't like pasta). I tried it both ways...my fave was the potatoes! The meat was VERY tender, and the gravy was FANTASTIC. I am planning on using the left over gravy and meat over biscuits..YUMMY! Thanks so much Daria!!! **UPDATE** I made this again but I tried using healthy request soups and reduced fat sour cream. It still came out good, but not AS sumptuous. Next time I will still use the healthy request soups, but use regular sour cream.

Chocolate Eclair Dessert

Reviewed: Mar. 13, 2008
Holy cow this was sooooo easy and sooooo good!! I let my 11 yr old do most of it. I told him this will be his special dessert for family get togethers from now on! ****NOTE**** This is best made the day before! As it sits, the graham crackers get soft (cake like) and it's SO much better this way!! I also heated up the frosting in the microwave (40 seconds on 60% power) then poured on top and smoothed out. The "creamy" filling is the BEST part of this dish. I ended up using the whole box of graham crackers..not sure why, my pan was just a regular 13X9. I used sugar free vanilla pudding and 1% milk and it was great! I like it better than REAL eclairs!! So light and fluffy...yuuuum!

Oven Fried Party Drummettes

Reviewed: Mar. 14, 2008
These were good tasting, but then again...I like ANY kind of wings!! They didn't come out as evenly brown as the picture shows. Next time I may let them go even longer because I liked the ones that got done the most the best! I followed the recipe exactly (except used margarine instead of butter). The dip was good, but the ranch was a little STRONG tasting for me. I ended up adding a little more sour cream and that helped. I will probably make these again, but not with the dip...too much fat for both the wings and the dip!
