Slow Cooker Baked Potatoes

Reviewed: Jan. 15, 2013
This was okay for a busy day as the effort was minimal (I didn't bother with the foil) and my kids and husbands ate their potatoes up. In general, we prefer the crisp, chewy crust and steamy interior of a baked potato, but I would defintely use this method again on a busy day. .For those debating: I used the low setting and the 5 medium potatoes were all cooked through. In this methd, the skin becomes moist and tender and the interior gets fluffier than a microwaved potato but a more moist and dense than an oven baked potato. The inside also takes on a tanish/light brownish shade which my kids didn't seem to notice. I would definitely recommend trying this on your family before presenting to guests. Overall, we weren't wowed by the potatoes, but they were fine for a weeknight dinner.

Sue's Hot Fudge Sauce

Reviewed: Sep. 26, 2011
This was easy and made a LOT of sauce -- I made it for a large party (20+) and still had a lot left over. The reason for my "average" rating is that I didn't find the sauce to have a lot of depth -- I prefer a deep, dark chocolate flavor and felt this one was more sweet. I had added additional cocoa and some chocolate chips to try to add some depth, but think it could use some dark chocolate or coffee to make the flavor more complex. Good basic recipe, just not the total indulgence I'm looking for in hot fudge.

Eggplant Croquettes

Reviewed: Sep. 20, 2011
Very mixed review on this: My kids and husband (none of whom like eggplant) ate these without complaint. The fact they resemble burgers in appearance and have little eggplant flavor helped a lot. I did not like them though -- I found them really bland, too soft, heavy on the flavor of breadcrumbs and without enough eggplant flavor. This is a recipe better for those who don't like eggplant than for those who do - I won't make again.

Millet Muffins

Reviewed: Jun. 4, 2011
This recipe is a keeper. We cut the oil in half and added 1/4 of applesauce and found the batter was fine for 12 muffins and was moist. The taste was like sweet wheat bread, with the benefit of a little crunchiness from the millet. The kids gobbled them up with dinner, but they'd be equally good for a snack or breakfast with a little jam. Thanks for this great recipe!

Whole Wheat Banana Nut Bread

Reviewed: Feb. 25, 2011
I've made many different banana breads, but I think this is really the best tasting and the only one I've added to my recipe box. It's very tender and light (not dense) and the honey creates a buttery undertone. I did add some extra banana to use up what I had on hand and didn't have a full 1/2 cup of honey (subbed in a small amount of brown sugar). Still --wow!

Cabbage Patch Stew

Reviewed: Oct. 21, 2009
I thought this was a great idea to use cabbage so that it wouldn't be as noticed by the kids. Came out very much like a chili with cabbage in it, but my chili kid ate it up. Overall, I found the flavors to be a little bland. I would definitely make this again, but would add some chili powder and more cumin next time.

Cocoa Banana Bars

Reviewed: Aug. 17, 2009
Yum! The banana and the butter really stand out -- and the chocolate just makes it perfect. I did some minor changes: used 1/2 cp of wheat graham flour in lieu of all white and used 2/3 of brown sugar instead of the cup of all-white. Following another reviewer, I put the banana batter in the pan first, then mixed in the cocoa and added 1/4 cp of mini chips. I plan on wrapping the squares and freezing them to add to the kids lunchboxes (If we don't eat it all first!)
