Chicken Delirious and Buttered Rice (for Pressure Cooker)

Reviewed: Jan. 26, 2014
Delicious! I didn't have orange juice or whisky, so subbed chicken broth. I'll try it with OJ and whisky after we get some. I have had my pressure cooker for a while but always forget to use it, so I was excited to use it again. Just as easy--and quick--as I remembered! I thought the chicken and veggies were cooked perfectly, but I browned the chicken first, then dumped in the veggies, gave them a quick stir, added in the liquid, then popped the lid on and let it rip. This does make several servings, so I wish I'd made more rice, but I can easily make more for the leftovers. I didn't add cornstarch and all that--just dredged the chicken in flour and called it a day. There is a lot of liquid, sure, but it absorbs into the rice. I thought hubs might be unhappy with the vinegar flavor of this, but he didn't really complain at all. I loved it and look forward to making it again. Thanks for the recipe!

Slow Cooker Pork Cacciatore

Reviewed: Jan. 25, 2014
Really good, and easy! I decided to brown it with flour and seasoning like other people did, and I can't say that kept the sauce thick or not, as I also drained the tomatoes. There was still a bit of extra liquid, but we liked it. I used roasted red peppers as other people did--only peppers I had in the house. I don't like mushrooms, but I just pulled them out on my plate since hubs does like them. A note: if you are worried about dry pork chops, just cook for less time. I cooked for about 2 hours on high and they were perfectly cooked and delicious. I put a thermometer in the crock pot before turning off to make sure, and the temp was definitely over 160, so it was fine. Thanks for the recipe!

Buttermilk Cinnamon Rolls

Reviewed: Jan. 25, 2014
These are easy, and pretty good, but hubs whined they weren't gooey enough. He loves cinnamon rolls that have tons of liquid, and these aren't quite it. I thought they needed a tad more topping too, but the dough is good, so a thought might be to make the dough with another topping. Thanks for the recipe!

Apricot Raisin Loaf

Reviewed: Jan. 21, 2014
Um, this is basically a fruitcake without the alcohol and candied fruits. It's not bad, just not quite what I was expecting when I started making the recipe. However, I suspected it was what it was as I started tossing in the fruits and nuts, but after pouring it into the pan, I was sure. It turns out pretty, as well, but hubs complained it was hard to put butter on because it was slippery. I had to bake for another 15 mins to finish. Thanks for the recipe!

Honey Bunch Bread

Reviewed: Jan. 19, 2014
Very nice bread. Hubs loved it even more than the Bagel Bread he has been raving about for 6 months . . .I guess he's found a new favorite! I did have to add about 1/2 cup more flour, and instead of making this into 2 loaves like others did, I made it into 4. It made for small loaves, but it's just the 2 of us so that works even better. I used the bread machine but took it out after the dough cycle and baked on 350 for 40 minutes. Delicious! Thanks for the recipe!

Raspberry-Pomegranate Jellies

Reviewed: Jan. 15, 2014
We like the flavor in these, but like other reviewers, we are a tad disappointed in the texture. Despite our childlike tendencies with other things, my husband and I aren't too picky about jello and needing it to be firm so we can play with it. We are okay with the normal texture and just like to eat it. Therefore, it's a bit too firm for us--and it was really hard to cut. I got a workout there! . . .I liked them with and without sugar, but hubs did not like them dipped in sugar at all--didn't like the texture, I guess. He did like them without the sugar. For all that, though, we loved the flavor, so I think I'm going to just try half pomegranate juice and half hot water next time for a normal jello. Thanks for the recipe!

6 Hour Pork Butt

Reviewed: Jan. 5, 2014
Very good. I didn't have any fresh herbs, so I cut those amounts in half but otherwise kept it all the same. I didn't have wine, so just left it out, but I had about half the size roast so I roasted for 3 hours. Based on help from Lindsay and others on the Recipe Exchange, I learned that pork roasts can be cooked to 145 degrees with a 3 minute rest time. Based on that, this halved recipe doesn't need to be roasted for 3 hours because it was 170 degrees at 3 hours. However, I'm not very concerned about it. It wasn't tough at all, and I made a gravy with the roast juices loosely based on Chef John's Beef Au Jus recipe from here; I just added more flour. Hubs loved it and I served with steamed red potatoes (thank you slow cooker!!!) and salad. Thanks for the recipe!

Habanero, Rosemary, and Cheddar Bread

Reviewed: Jan. 5, 2014
I'm not a fan of spicy, so I changed from habanero to jalapeno, but I'm not sure I put enough in since hubs and I didn't think it was spicy at all. I also used my bread machine for this, which ground up the cheese and peppers, which I knew would happen but I thought it might be okay. This recipe, though, does seem to need the pieces of pepper, rosemary, and cheese in it, so I'll add it at the fruit and nut beep next time or use the KA mixer. I think I'll also double the jalapeno so we can taste it. I baked in the oven, but at 350 for 40 minutes. Since I modified it, not the submitter's fault that it turned out different than intended, and this turned out really well, even with the modifications, so it's a good bread, just maybe needs more modifications to work with what we'd prefer here. Thanks for the recipe!

Fasolatha

Reviewed: Jan. 4, 2014
Yum. I made this in the crock pot--left it on high for about 4 hours, then turned it to low. Instead of water, I used chicken broth and also used cooked and frozen navy beans (don't have white kidney beans). This is a lovely veggie soup. Hubs didn't even complain that there wasn't any meat in it. I, too, doubled the spices and added garlic. I don't know how much olive oil I put in--I didn't measure, as usual, and just poured in what looked right. Thanks for the recipe!

Bread Pudding in the Slow Cooker

Reviewed: Dec. 25, 2013
A little bland, but this is a basic bread pudding. It works well in the slow cooker, and you can easily adjust. I meant to grease the cooker and forgot. Oops. If you make it, try to remember to grease it. It really helps. Thanks for the recipe!

Chocolate Yum Yum Cake

Reviewed: Dec. 25, 2013
This is very rich and heavy, but the chocolate lovers I know really enjoyed it. My coworker asked for a chocolate cake for her birthday and she got it. Very easy, too, but incredibly heavy. I greased a bundt pan exceedingly well and it was still hard to get out of the pan. I decided not to make the frosting, so I can't speak to that. Since I made in a bundt pan, it took closer to 1 hour 20 minutes. I baked at 350. Thanks for the recipe!

Raspberry Cream Cheese Coffee Cake

Reviewed: Dec. 21, 2013
Very nice. very easy, too, and a good little breakfast thing that I brought into work. Everyone really seemed to love it, and ate it within a couple of days (I have a small unit and my coworkers like to nibble). Thanks for the recipe!

Potato Breakfast Casserole

Reviewed: Dec. 21, 2013
I wanted to bring these into work for breakfast, so I put them in ramekins so as to make individual servings. They were large, and I got 6 out of them. I topped with the toppings instead of mixing in since I have a coworker who is vegetarian so I left the meat out of his. This makes for a really nice, relatively easy breakfast casserole that reheats well. My coworkers loved it. Thanks for the recipe.

Coconut Buttons

Reviewed: Dec. 21, 2013
Pretty plain without the chocolate, but I really didn't want to dip them in chocolate. I tried dipping in caramel but I didn't like that either, so I left them as is. They turned out okay, but I really wanted more coconut flavor. Perhaps I'll try them again with chocolate. Making the button part was kind of annoying; you have to press the shape in before baking but then press again after baking. I also didn't bake that long; instead, I baked for less time at 350. thanks for the recipe.

Molasses Sugar Cookies

Reviewed: Dec. 21, 2013
These flatten beautifully and end up very crinkly and pretty on a plate. I like the flavor as well; if you like spice cookies you will really like these. Makes a lot. Thanks for the recipe!

Cinnamon Spice Drop Cookies

Reviewed: Dec. 21, 2013
Very nice. They flatten well if you just let them cool on the pan and they have a nice flavor of salty, sweet, and cinnamon. Plus, if you underbake slightly you get chewy, yet soft cookies. A great addition to my Christmas cookie tins. Thanks for the recipe!

Buttermilk Cinnamon Bread

Reviewed: Dec. 21, 2013
I made individual loaves for my coworkers for Christmas, which took 4 batches. I was tired of all the batches and missed the instructions to divide the cinnamon sugar mixture between the middle and the topping. No matter, hubs said the bread was really good. Thanks for the recipe!

Cream Cheese Bread

Reviewed: Dec. 21, 2013
Very nice. I made this for a work Christmas party and everyone loved it. I didn't make into six loaves but instead divided it into two, making one into a wreath and the other into a loaf in a pan. This turned out extremely well and tastes really nice even without the glaze. The cream cheese has the right amount of sweetness with the light taste of the bread. Thanks for the recipe!

Spaghetti Soup

Reviewed: Dec. 21, 2013
This is pretty good, but not sure that the tomato soup is necessary. Hubs said he would prefer it without the tomato soup, and I kind of agree. I used tomato paste instead, but either way, we didn't think it needed it. This used up some chicken I had in the fridge and was very quick and easy--exactly what I was looking for since hubs was hungry and I hadn't started dinner. As other reviewers have mentioned, it's best to break up the spaghetti very small otherwise you'll end up with long spaghetti pieces to slurp. Thanks for the recipe!

Easy Pumpkin Pie Bars

Reviewed: Dec. 14, 2013
When the recipe submitter says this tastes like pumpkin pie, believe her. It definitely does! Now, that's not the greatest thing for me, since I'm not the biggest fan of pumpkin pie, but I know a lot of people are, so we can discount my opinion. I think it's the texture since I like the taste of pumpkin. At any rate, this used up a lot of stuff in my pantry. I had two 15 oz cans of pumpkin so had a bit more pumpkin than called for, and didn't have yellow cake mix so I used vanilla. Still, this worked really well and tastes like a basic pumpkin pie. It makes a ton and I'm hoping my sister in law and nieces like pumpkin pie, since I plan to bring a lot of this to their house when we go over to give them our presents. This is incredibly easy to make; just be prepared to leave it in the oven longer than stated. Mine took an hour and 20 minutes. Thanks for the recipe!
