Shepherd's Pie VI

Reviewed: Apr. 14, 2012
Very hearty dish; I made some changes (hubby loved it): 1. I used boxed instant potatoes according to directions of 8 servings. 2. Margarine instead of butter. 3. Omitted cheese and ketchup. 4. Used frozen & chopped carrots and peas. 5. Olive oil instead of vegetable oil. 6. Ground turkey instead of ground beef. 7. Chicken broth instead of beef broth (because I used turkey). 8. Added crushed hot peppers to give it a kick. 9. Glazed the top of potatoes with a beaten egg to add color and a crusty layer. I think I'll add some Chardonnay to the turkey next time too.

Italian Sausage Soup

Reviewed: Oct. 20, 2011
A good soup to have when you're sick or on a cold day. I made couple of changes (which also included another reviewer's recommendations): A. Italian sweet sausages were used, casing was taken off. B. I used Cannellini beans instead. C. 2 cans of Italian style stewed tomatoes. D. 1 onion, sliced. E. 1 jalapeno (chopped).

Slow Cooker Pot Roast

Reviewed: Sep. 5, 2011
Great recipe and the meat was so tender that it practically melts in your mouth! The first time I cooked it according to directions, the meat was too salty. So I made it again and made the following changes and it was a hit (and better too): 1. I only marinated the meat with black pepper. The dry seasonings have enough sodium already. 2. I couldn't find ranch dressing mix, so I used ranch dip mix instead. 3. I mixed the dry ingredients with hot water so that they'll melt faster and added some minced garlic too. Then let it sit for about 10 minutes before putting it into the slow cooker. Next time I'm going to put some jalapenos in there to make it spicy. ***Follow-up on my original review: I made couple of other changes and the dish turned out even better - 1. Mixed the dried ingredients with 1 cup of water. 2. Added crushed red peppers onto the dry ingredients according to how spicy I want it to be. 3. Marinated the meat with crushed peppercorns. 4. I scooped some of the sauce from the side with a ladle and poured it all over the top of the meat 2 & 1/2 hours before it was done, so that the top of the meat would not get too dry. 5. I served it with rice the first couple of times, but served it with spaghetti because this time (I only cooked them according to the package's directions, no salt added into the pasta water), poured some sauce over the noodles and then the meat on top. The sauce complemented the noodles really well.
