Slow Cooker Au Jus Pot Roast

Reviewed: Dec. 17, 2012
Outstanding gravy! Wow was that good! I have to say, though that I started out with homemade beef stock rather than using bouillon which I'm sure had a lot to do with the great flavor of the gravy. I did not add the coffee, nor did I add the steak seasoning. I did not have those on hand. I did add instead a little "Herbamare Spicy" and a little Tamari. I also prefer to sear the roast before adding it to the crock pot, but didn't have the time so I skipped that step. All in all the roast was falling apart tender and the gravy very possibly was the best I'd ever tasted!

Soft Frosted Sugar Cookies

Reviewed: Nov. 10, 2012
Great cookie! Pillowy soft! I used butter instead of shortening, decreased the salt to a half tsp. and used half of the frosting. I agree with the previous reviewer that these cookies are way to sticky to roll, so I used a round cookie scoop and dropped them directly onto the cookie sheet. My cookie scoop was quite large so I baked them for 14 minutes while not over baking! They were not at all flat and looked beautiful after frosting and topping with fall sprinkles.

Pumpkin Bars V

Reviewed: Nov. 4, 2012
Very good, quick and easy! I agree with another reviewer; the chocolate chips and nuts are not optional. That's what does make them so good. That being said, I did cut back on them both, using only a cup of each (My husband isn't big on chocolate). I did use sucanat, because I do not use white sugar for health reasons. And the baking time was right on at 35 minutes. These were very moist! Delish!

Five Spice Muffins

Reviewed: Sep. 8, 2012
Exceptional! The flavor of these muffins is outstanding! I used sucanat instead of white sugar and baked jumbo muffins instead of regular sized. They even looked perfect with high domed tops. I must admit I did not use the sunflower seeds because I didn't have any, but I did add a few blueberries. I will be making these often! In fact I may just use this recipe for my zucchini bread as well.It is that good! The spices make the muffin!

Blueberry Zucchini Bread

Reviewed: Sep. 7, 2012
Don't look any farther! Great bread especially with the addition of the blueberries. I did sub half of the oil with applesauce just to use up some that I had in the fridge. I also used more like 3 cups of zucchini. I subbed the white sugar with sucanat because I never use white sugar and I used only 2 cups instead of the 2 1/4. And then I rolled the blueberries in flour before adding then to the batter so that they would not sink to the bottom. Also I baked 2 loaves instead of 4 and baked for about 1 hour and 10 min.

Beef Roast in Red Wine (Carni Arrosto al Vino Rosso)

Reviewed: Sep. 4, 2012
Tons of flavor! I used 1 clove garlic, no red wine, but used a couple gluks of balsamic vinegar. I also used tamari instead of worcestershire, fresh basil and thyme (about 2 tsp. each) and Italian seasoning (about 1 1/2 tsp.), cut the black pepper to about a 1/2 tsp. I also used about 6-7 fresh tomatoes, peeled, seeded and crushed instead of the canned. Instead of the tomato paste, I thickened with arrowroot powder although the tomato paste sounded good, because I served it with brown rice and wanted more of a gravy type sauce.

Honey Spiced Granola Bars

Reviewed: Jun. 19, 2012
Followed the recipe exactly without using the cocoa. I found them to be outstanding in flavor however rubbery in texture. I would rate them a 3 1/2 if I could.

Cabbage Hamburger Bake

Reviewed: Dec. 22, 2011
Very good! I used 2 cans tomato sauce, 1/2 c.heavy cream and an 1/2 c. water as another reviewer suggested because I don't use canned soup. I also added 6 slices of crumbled bacon and mixed the whole thing together rather than layering it.Then I served it over brown rice.

Gramma's Date Squares

Reviewed: Dec. 12, 2011
We didn't care for these even though we love dates. There was WAY too much crumb mixture. I could have used half for the crust and the crumb top. The filling was boring and the whole bar was very crumbly. I was going to throw them out, but my husband said that he would eat them if he go desperate. Sorry....

Winter Squash Rolls

Reviewed: Dec. 12, 2011
A staple in our house! These rolls are DELICIOUS! I did re arrange the directions a little only because I have more success making bread with this method. This is what I did...I mixed the flour, salt, sugar & yeast. Then I heated the squash, milk, water & butter (that I subbed for the shortening because I don't eat trans fats). And then added the liquid ingredients to the flour mixture. I did have to add more flour, maybe a cup or so. It made a soft dough that rose very nicely. I made double the rolls that the recipe called for because I prefer smaller rolls and baked them at 400 degrees for 15 minutes. These are soft and fluffy and go wonderful with soup.

Roast Pork with Maple and Mustard Glaze

Reviewed: Dec. 6, 2011
My son & husband really liked this. I thought it was a tad sweet even though I only used 3/4 c maple syrup. It did carmalize real nice and made a nice saucey type gravy to put over the mashed potatoes that I made to go with it. I reduced the glaze in half on the stove before pouring over the roast and I only poured 1/2 of it over the roast and saved the other half for basting 1/2 way through cooking. I cooked the roast first at 500 degrees for a 1/2 hour, then reduced the heat to 275 degrees for several more hours. I did not have the "too salty" issue as others did because I always use tamari in place of soy sauce.

Grilled Pork Chops with Balsamic Caramelized Pears

Reviewed: Nov. 29, 2011
Eh....I must say the brining delivered a very tender pork chop, but the dish as a whole was nothing to write home about. It was just okay. I will not make this again.

Rich Mashed Potatoes

Reviewed: Nov. 25, 2011
Best mashed potatoes ever! I used about 1/2 the container of sour cream and about 1/3 of a brick of cream cheese and no onion salt or garlic powder, just salt and pepper. My husband said they were fantastic!

Turkey Brine

Reviewed: Nov. 25, 2011
A-MAZING! I always wanted to brine a turkey but was afraid of the "too salty" issue. I read a lot of reviews and decided to just do it! I decided to go the expense and use celtic sea salt (didn't want all that sodium.). I used 3/4 cup instead of the full cup. Brined a 20lb. turkey for 16 hours. I put it in the oven uncovered at 500 degrees for a 1/2 hour, then reduced the heat to 325. I checked it in 3 1/2 hours and it was more than done, but not in the least dried out. It was the juiciest turkey I have ever eaten. I used fresh herbs, but could not taste them at all. The gravy was perfect after adding the flour and water mixture. There was no need to season the gravy and it was outstanding in flavor. I also found the brining bag at Bed, Bath & Beyond and put the turkey ina cooler surrounded by ice. I will definitely be brining again next year.

Oven Roasted Parmesan Potatoes

Reviewed: Nov. 9, 2011
Will definitely be my go to recipe! Before my husband even took a bite, he said, Wow, those look good! They browned up just like the picture. The spice mix was perfect and they were crispy on the outside, tender on the inside. Not to mention, very easy to throw together. Thanks for the recipe!

Italian Sausage Soup with Tortellini

Reviewed: Nov. 6, 2011
This soup is 10 STARS for flavor for sure! I used homemade beef stock with 1/2 qt. home canned tomatoes with the juice in place of the 4 lg. tomatoes (what I had on hand) and I did not add water or red wine. I added substancially more carrots, a 16 oz. bag of tortellini and 1 1/2 lb. sausage. I had frozen basil in the freezer in ice cube trays from my garden so I threw in one large cube of basil instead of 1/2 Tbps. fresh. This soup was outstanding! And both my sons and my husband said that it was their favorite soup ever! I will be making this often. It was also VERY EASY to through together.

Citrus Shortbread Cookies

Didn't use almond extract, just extra vanilla (husband doesn't like.). I liked these, however the DH did not. So...I won't be making these again.

Tender Breaded Turkey Cutlets

Reviewed: Nov. 2, 2011
This was just okay. I will stick to my ususal dipping the turkey breasts in egg, then dipping in crumbs & parmesan. The coating didn't really stay on the turkey real well.

Pumpkin Maple Pie Supreme

Reviewed: Oct. 30, 2011
Amazing! I would give this 10 STARS if I could! This is by far the best, creamiest, tastiest pumpkin pie I have ever eaten. First of all I have an abundance of butternut squash from my garden, so after I baked it and prcessed in my food processor, I used that instead of the sugar pumpkin. I also eliminated the 3/4 cup of brown sugar and increased the maple syrup to 3/4 cup. I can't imagine why you would need so much sugar in this recipe?? (We don't eat refined sugar anyway.) The only other change I made was to reduce the ginger and the nutmeg to 1/2 tsp. I was afraid that it might be to much as written. As others noted it was very runny when I put it into the oven, but it solidified beautifully in the oven. All in all the end result was FANTASTIC!
