Mushroom Lentil Barley Stew

Reviewed: Jan. 26, 2010
Would definitely make this again. I too used just 1 tsp of black pepper and used a real onion instead of flakes, but otherwise followed the recipe. 12 hours on low and everything was cooked perfectly. House smelled great. Had to look a little for the savory, but I found it and it was something new that I can enjoy.

Sour Cream Pork Chops

Reviewed: Mar. 9, 2009
Pretty good, I will def. use this recipe again. Pretty reasonable on calories too, especially if you use low fat sour cream.

Slow Cooker Chicken Taco Soup

Reviewed: Jan. 17, 2009
Certainly not gourmet, byt SUPER EASY and delicious. I didn't drain anything except the corn (per the recipe), but next time I would probably drain off more of the liquid from the other cans so it is more of a chili consistency.

Asparagus, Feta and Couscous Salad

Reviewed: Jan. 17, 2009
A good base for a recipe. I had quite a few little tweaks and a person could have lots more, you just need to adjust to your tastes. I roasted the asparagus instead of steaming. I used parmesean/asiago instead of feta and I would have used a little less oil/vinegar in the end. I wasn't sure how much couscous to use...2 cups dry or 2 cups cooked. I went with the two cups cooked and this easily made four side servings, if not six. But again it was a little too much oil/vinegar for the amount of couscous. I like mine to be a little more dry.

French Onion Soup I

Reviewed: Jan. 9, 2009
Very pleased with the way it turned out. Used cooking sherry instead of red wine because it is what I had. I sized the recipe to two servings and it could have easily stretched to 4 servings if you were eating it as a starter, at least 3 generous servings. Tip for those who have never made French Onion.... keep the cheese off the edge of the bowl...it makes for easier clean up!

Stephan's Broiled Salmon Pesto

Reviewed: Jan. 3, 2009
Used a prepared sun dried tomato pesto from the grocery store, but otherwise followed the recipe. This was very tasty. The pesto got nice a crispy.

Creamed Chipped Beef On Toast

Reviewed: Dec. 31, 2008
Comfort food! I also doubled the flour and butter, but didn't need to double the milk really. It was my first time making a roux (sp?) and I think it turned out well. I also used the Buddig beef instead of the jar of dried beef, so no saltiness problem.

Roasted Asparagus with Balsamic Vinegar

Reviewed: Dec. 31, 2008
I had always steamed asparagus, but never again. This is such a great way to prepare it. Even if you just use EVOO and sea salt, roasted asparagus is delicious!

Edamame Dip (Edamole)

Reviewed: Dec. 31, 2008
Not great as written, kinda bland, but spice it up the same way you would with guacamole. The recipe writer later added lemon juice and cilantro. I would also add chopped onion and tomato if I make this again.

Portobello Pot Pie

Reviewed: Dec. 11, 2008
Followed the recipe as written and indeed there was a lot of extra filling. But that was okay because I just put that in a casserole dish for leftovers. The vegetarians at my Thanksgiving dinner really enjoyed this. Would be better with homemade crust if you think you can handle that!

Indian Curry Couscous Salad

Reviewed: Nov. 27, 2008
I thought this recipe was delicious. Made it as is, with the excepetion of not using a measuring cup...just eyed everything up. It's pretty zesty, but I think that mainly comes from the crushed red pepper so you could leave that out. I love curry though and the fresh veggies and beans is a great mix.

Hash Brown Egg Bake

Reviewed: Nov. 22, 2008
Made recipe as written. Was plenty moist as written (some complained it was dry), but could have more eggs to balance out potatoes. Great to freeze in pieces and warm up in microwave. Added at least 15 minutes to cooking time, but that might be my oven.

Couscous and Cucumber Salad

Reviewed: Nov. 22, 2008
Made the recipe as written and it was pretty darn good. Simple to make, nice fresh taste. I would sprinkle a little extra lemon juice on it before eating just to freshen it, but it kept well in the fridge for a couple of days. Could easily be a five star by adding some other flavors...be creative!

Quick Chicken Stew

Reviewed: Aug. 14, 2007
I wish I would have added some mushrooms and used fewer carrots, but you really can add whatever veggies you want. We ate it over rice, which was perfect in my opinion. QUICK AND EASY!

Pesto Tuna Salad with Sun-Dried Tomatoes

Reviewed: Aug. 14, 2007
I doubled the recipe to serve more and still ended up using an extra 3ozs of tuna. So the ratios seem a little off, so experiment. Overall though, the flavor was AMAZING! We had it both on bread and with pasta. Great both ways.

Slow Cooker Chops

Reviewed: Sep. 13, 2006
Delicious! I used a lot of people's suggestions on this one. Browned the pork chops (6 smaller ones) after seasoning with salt, pepper and roasted garlic powder. Put potatoes and large mushrooms in the bottom of crock pot. Used two cans of cream of mushrooms with roasted garlic soup. And 1/2 cup water that I used to deglaze the pan I browned the chops in. Put chops on top and poured one can of the soup on top. Cooked for 4 hours on high. YUM. Green beans on the side.

Peking Pork Chops

Reviewed: Aug. 19, 2006
Excellent flavor and very tender. Used 1/4 teriyaki and 1/4 soy instead of 1/2 soy. Cooked 4.5 hours on low. Next time I would use some of the sauce for the crock pot to stir fry some veggies. Also we only made 3 chops, but used full sauce. And regular ketchup was just fine.
