Citrus Turkey Roast

Reviewed: Jan. 15, 2007
Not bad; the turkey was moist and flavorful, but the garlic overwhelmed any hint of citrus flavor. Might try again with half the garlic.

Roasted Potato Medley

Reviewed: Jan. 15, 2007
Interesting combination... Would agree that less balsamic vinegar might be used to let potato and other tastes come through.

Kathy's Delicious Whole Slow Cooker Chicken

Reviewed: Jan. 15, 2007
Absolutely delicious blend of flavors. Chicken so tender it fell off the bones. Removing skin not a big problem, and allowed flavor to really infuse meat, as well as cut way back on fat. Thanks for a great new way to slow-cook chicken!

Baked Round Steak in Barbeque Sauce

Reviewed: May 28, 2007
Nice and easy recipe to make on the quick. After reading other lack of flavor comments, I "helped it out" by adding some ready made barbeque sauce to the ketchup mixture. Thanks!!

Yellow Squash and Corn Casserole

Reviewed: Oct. 14, 2007
Light, flavorful, great fall side-dish recipe! I went 50-50 yellow squash and zucchini to add some color, but otherwise followed recipe exactly. It might just be my oven, but it needed at least 10 min. more time than recipe suggested. Thanks for a keeper!!

Nice, basic salmon patty recipe with lots of possibilities for adding "extras." I added some lemon juice and a bit of garlic. Yum!!

Mexican Rice I

Reviewed: Nov. 17, 2007
Mmmm, easy, tasty... I'd agree to go for the ro-tel/Mexican-style canned tomatoes; otherwise followed the recipe pretty closely. Used low salt chicken bouillion broth and just a dash more salt. Thanks!

Salsa Chicken

Reviewed: Nov. 17, 2007
Quick and easy... I think I'm going to look around for a different taco mix, or make my own, as I think what I used over-powered the chicken. Otherwise, it's a convenient, flavorful way to serve Mexican-style chicken.

Grandma's Slow Cooker Vegetarian Chili

Reviewed: Dec. 22, 2007
Great veggie recipe!! Easy prep and lots of opportunity to add/subract for personal taste. The hotter the better for me, which means more chili powder, cayenne, and possibly a couple of cans of rotel tomatoes... Everyone loved it at the office potluck and no one missed the meat.

Granny's Banana Bread

Reviewed: Jan. 1, 2008
Mmmm! Thanks for the lower fat, healthy recipe! Followed directions just about exactly (minus nuts/raisins and 1/2 the sugar) and baked to a perfect texture in 1 hour. Great spice mix!!

Cornbread Casserole

Reviewed: Jan. 12, 2008
Followed the recipe pretty closely, but it came out very "gluey" in texture. Taste not bad, but there are similar, yet better recipes for this on this site.

Guilt-Free Mac 'n' Cheese

Reviewed: Feb. 2, 2008
Mild as is, easy to prepare. Will try it again with more spices, to add a bit more zest. Also does not need as long in oven as stated by recipe. Thanks for a great "guilt free" treat!!

Spicy Beef Curry Stew for the Slow Cooker

Reviewed: Feb. 10, 2008
Great cold night recipe! I didn't brown the meat in advance, just mixed it with flour in plastic bag. Added carrots, potatoes, onions and green peppers to slow cooker, then mixed spices and tomatoes in a separate bowl and poured over meat and veggies. Voila, an easy, tasty treat!!! I liked the extra heat from jalapenos (w/ canned tomatoes) but they can easily be left out. Thanks!!

Beer Beef Stew

Reviewed: Mar. 23, 2008
Quick, easy and wonderfully flexible recipe! I followed advice of previous reviewers and cut amounts on both broth and beer, and the consistency came out just right. Also added flour (cut out salt, plenty in broth and tomato sauce/paste) and spice (added curry, my favorite-- See spicy slow-cooker beef stew w/ curry...Mmmm!!) all together in plastic bag and shook to coat. Might leave out the cabbage next time, but it was fine. Thanks for a cold weather keeper!!

Carrot Casserole

Reviewed: May 24, 2008
Good basic recipe! I didn't have cream of celery soup, so used (low sodium) cream of mushroom, and added no salt Spike rather than the salt and pepper, but otherwise stayed with the original recipe. I could see myself making it again, perhaps adding a mix of veggies and/or mushrooms... Great comfort food! Thanks!!

Awesome Slow Cooker Pot Roast

Reviewed: Jun. 24, 2008
What can I say that 3000+ people haven't already said?! I used just 2lbs of roast, so cut back on the soup (low sodium cream of mushroom) half an envelope of onion soup mix and some chopped up red potatoes, onions and carrots. Skipped the water by accident, and gravy consistency was perfect! Quick and easy to prepare in the morning and come home from work to a fine dinner. Plan to experiment in the future with different soups/soup mixes... Thanks!

Pear Bread

Reviewed: Aug. 24, 2008
Had a wonderful crop of pears this summer, so I've been searching for interesting pear recipes. This is an easy, adaptable recipe with great results! I cut back on the sugar, added honey, cinnamon and cloves. Make sure that the pears are well ripened to give full flavor! Thanks!!

Slow Cooker Lasagna

Reviewed: Aug. 24, 2008
It's already been said, but this is a wonderful time-saver with plenty of room for adapting/changing for taste or time. I also used (nonfat)ricotta, my own sauce, and chopped spinach, carrots, and zucchini in the cheese mixture. Great for a hot night when you don't want to turn on the oven. Mmmm!

Zucchini Cornbread Casserole

Reviewed: Sep. 8, 2008
Great recipe! I decided to dice rather than shred the zucchini/yellow squash mix, and mixed mexican blend of cheese in completely with batter, but otherwise left this easy side the same. Also used a zesty no-salt mix to cut back on salt, and will add more spice next time to bring out flavors... Great late summer, early fall treat!! Thanks...!!
