Awesome Slow Cooker Pot Roast

Reviewed: Mar. 13, 2003
Delicious! I made this recipe for six adults and everyone seemed to really enjoy it. As a matter of fact, my husband said I could make it for him ANYTIME! I did do a couple of specific things: 1). I seasoned my chuck roast with salt, pepper and Lawry's. Then I seared it before putting it into the slow cooker for about nine hours. I think the seasoning and searing helped in sealing the flavor and juices. 2). I used the McCormick Pot Roast seasoning packet instead of onion soup mix. And I added some minced garlic. The meat was so tender and tasty. I just wished I would have made more. The recipe calls for between 4 and 5 pounds of beef. But it REALLY shrinks down. I should have used closer to 6 or 6.5 pounds. It still was delicious. Thanks for the great recipe Brenda.

Pumpkin Cookies VI

Reviewed: Oct. 8, 2007
This is one of my all time favorite cookies. I JUST made these and I couldn't stop eating them. I do agree that they need to be cooked a bit longer, closer to 12 minutes. The only adjustments I made was to omit the raisins and adding 2 TBSP of ground flax seed. I LOVE the flavor flax provides not to mention the added protein and other benefits. I think next time, I will try to make a healthier version using more oats and applesauce instead of oil. Thank you for sharing this recipe. I believe it will become a family tradition in my home.

Easy Red Beans and Rice

Reviewed: Oct. 4, 2001
WOW, was this good. My husband and I had it for dinner and we both liked it very much. So much so, that we ate it all ourselves. I improvised a little and added one hot green pepper, mushrooms and some extra garlic. It was tasty and had a perfect kick to it. Thanks for the recipe, Paula. I'll be making this again and again.

Award Winning Soft Chocolate Chip Cookies

Reviewed: Nov. 10, 2002
I have to admit I was a bit disappointed by this recipe. I know it has received a lot of ratings, but I like a really chewy cookie and this was not it. It tasted alright, but I thought it was a little dry. I don't know exactly what the pudding mix does for it. So if you're looking for not just a soft cookie, but a chewy cookie, I don't think this recipe is for you.

Italian Sausage Dip

Reviewed: Nov. 8, 2002
This was a very good recipe. I didn't want anything spicy so I omitted the chiles and I used regular sausage instead of Italian. I wanted a little something with sweetness so I think adding 1/4 cup of cocktail would be awesome in this recipe. I made it for a scrapbook party and it was a hit. I had the recipe printed out and I had to give it away that night because someone wanted the recipe. I'll most likely be making this again. Thank you.

Chai Tea Mix

Reviewed: Sep. 26, 2003
I made this mix with most of the ingredients listed minus the cardamom. That's a bit expensive. However, I may need to try it sometime because the mix, although very good, seems to be missing something. I just wish it was a little more creamy and frothy like the "famous bread company" Chai Tea. I added a little pumpkin pie spice and nutmeg and pepper. My husband loves it and put it in his coffee for a real jolt. I also used Splenda instead of sugar. I used about a cup and a half of it and it's sweet, but I have a sweet tooth and would like it to be a touch sweeter. I'll probably go for the full two cups of sweetener next time. Thank for the recipe. I think it's a keeper.

Texas Caviar I

Reviewed: Jun. 27, 2009
This is going to be a summer dish hit! I just made this pretty much as instructed but I omitted one jalapeno and added a can of baby white/yellow corn. Yum, yum, yum! I wanted to let it sit overnight so I can serve at a function tomorrow, but my husband, my oldest son and me kept eating it as soon as it was made. I know it will be even tastier tomorrow after the flavors marry. I can't wait to take this to upcoming summer outings. Maybe I should take copies of the recipe....just in case. :-)

Baked Onion Dip I

Reviewed: Dec. 22, 2005
This is awesome. I was looking for the actual recipe of something my sister-in-law makes. However, she uses red onions instead of vidalia. Also, she mixes the ingredients, puts a dollop onto sliced french baguette bread and then bakes it. This solves the grease problem because the bread absorbs the oil and it makes the bread extra crunchy and tasty. YUM YUM YUM!

Chocolate Lovers' Favorite Cake

Reviewed: Nov. 14, 2005
First, I have to say that this recipe was very good. But I think a few changes need to be made to make it a five star recipe. The almond extract with the dark chocolate just doesn't do it for me. I think the combination doesn't fit well. Almond and vanilla or lighter flavors seem a better match. I think next time I will substitute either vanilla extract or a coffee liquor. The next suggestion would be to use chocolate chunks. Some reviewers thought mini chips would be better. I disagree. The reason being, when the cake is warmed up, the chips turn into goo and it makes the cake so much better. And the last thing. This is one of those cakes that needs to be served warm. When it's eaten cool, it doesn't have the same chocolatey impact. But warming individual slices really does the trick for this recipe. (And I added some Cool Whip on top. YUM!) Others mentioned greasing the pan well. This is a must. I had no problems with the cake sticking. And I did choose to let it cool a little longer than 10 minutes before I transferred it to a wire rack. Overall this was very good, but a few changes will take this cake over the top.

Bananas Foster II

Reviewed: Mar. 13, 2011
Are you kidding me?? You know a dessert is good when you serve it to your family and they take a bite and give you a speech-less wide eyed look (like they can't believe you made it yourself). This dessert rocks! I omitted the rum and substituted pecans instead of walnuts. I served over warm crescent rolls. It's like something you would taste in an upscale restaurant. Yeah! My husband was amazed.

Mandarin Almond Salad

Reviewed: Nov. 24, 2002
AWESOME!! This salad rocks! If you like sweet, it's for you. I added some dried cranberries to it (about 1 cup to 1.5 cups would be good). The almonds really add a nice flavor, just don't overcook them. Thanks, Bonnie. I'm sure I'll be making this again.

Oven-Fried Pork Chops

Reviewed: Sep. 19, 2011
Delicious. I haven't been cooking a lot lately and my family enjoyed these immensely. My husband liked them so much that he said he didn't know who cooked because it couldn't have been his wife. Nice. Anyway, thanks for the recipe. It made a wonderful dinner with red-skinned baked potato sections and seasoned, cooked carrots.

Baked Dijon Salmon

Reviewed: Oct. 2, 2002
This recipes was absolutely excellent. I like fish and normally I think salmon is just okay. But the ingredients in this recipes really made all the right flavors pop out. I much enjoyed the honey/Dijon mixture. The fish was cooked just right. DELICIOUS! I would definitely make this again. Thanks Arnie.

Bodacious Broccoli Salad

Reviewed: May 20, 2013
One of my favorite recipes. I just made this for a scouting event and thought I would be able to bring leftovers home. Wrong! It was devoured and I had two people ask for the recipe. It was easy for them to remember the name 'bodacious broccoli salad'. Some tweaks to make it perfect: 1) use less onion. I love red onion but a 1/2 onion would be enough. 2) go light on the red cider vinegar. Definitely taste the dressing as you make it to be sure it has the right amount of tang or sweetness for you. 3) adding a 1/2 cup of dried cranberries was perfect in this. I can't wait to make this again. I may try sunflower seeds next time. Thanks for a great recipe.

Shannon's Smoky Macaroni and Cheese

Reviewed: Dec. 23, 2012
Absolutely delicious. Not everyone likes the smoky flavor of gouda, but for those who do, this will be a hit. I would suggest using just a dash of the cayenne for the topping or remove it all together. This is definitely a grown up version of man-n-cheese.

White Chocolate Macadamia Nut Cookies II

Reviewed: Jan. 18, 2011
This is one of my favorite cookies. I used this recipe to make them for the first time and I absolutely love it. I can't stop eating them. I did use slightly more than the cup of white choc. chips. I might use closer to 3/4 cup of white sugar next time to cut the sweet down a tad. Other than that, this recipe was perfect and I'm sure I'll be making these again.

Baked Teriyaki Chicken

Reviewed: Jan. 5, 2009
Delicious. This sauce is very tasty and I love the thickness. you absolutely need to double recipe. That ensures you have enough sauce to dribble over some sticky rice. I would not consider it spicy at all though. You could put crushed red pepper or Korean hot pepper paste to kick up the heat. My kids even enjoyed this and that is an achievement.

Stuffed Shells III

Reviewed: Jan. 3, 2009
I enjoyed the flavor of this recipe, although I feel it was a little light on the sauce. Mine was a bit dry. I think I will increase the amount of sauce next time. I was able to freeze these to use again though. They hold up well.
