Purple Apple Slaw with Peanut Butter Dressing

Reviewed: Jun. 17, 2013
AWESOME!!! What a great blend of flavors and colors!!! No changes except added shredded carrots for some extra color. This beats tired, boring old regular cole slaw by a mile!!! YUM!!

Slow Cooker Creamed Spinach

Reviewed: Dec. 2, 2010
I've been craving this for a while, and decided to give it a try for a Thanksgiving side. I lightened it a bit with fat free cottage cheese, but probably cancelled that out when I realized I forgot the flour and sprinkled about a quarter cup of parmesan cheese instead!! So rich and creamy!! Also cut back on time in slow cooker; it was done in 4hrs or less. Will make again soon, either for a side or a yummy dip! Thanks...

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!!

Curried Cottage Fries

Reviewed: Feb. 5, 2013
THIS is how I'm going to roast potatoes from now on!! Super easy, super tasty, not greasy at all!! Wonderful blend of flavors-- I'm hooked!! I stuck to the recipe exactly, just nuked the potatoes a few minutes to cut roasting time and cut them in rounds rather than strips-- YUM!!

Turkey in a Pot

Reviewed: Nov. 14, 2010
They've GOT to come up with a better, more descriptive name for this recipe!! The smell of the spices, cider and cranberry mix made an all day potpourri throughout the house. Great fall dish!! I used cider rather than apple juice, and substituted red wine vinegar, since that's what I had, but stayed right with the recipe otherwise. The turkey was so moist and flavorful... Thanks for a great tasting meal!!

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!!

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!

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!

Tortilla Espanola (Spanish Tortilla)

Reviewed: Jun. 18, 2011
So many years after living a year abroad in Spain, nothing stands out more in mind like the comfort of a well-made tortilla espanola. We enjoyed this for breakfast this morning, scaled back for just two people, with 4 eggs, two large potatoes, half an onion, and a dash of salt, pepper, and garlic powder. Keep it simple, use plenty of olive oil, and cross your fingers for good luck when turning it over and you can't go wrong!! Buen provecho!!

Curried Mango Chicken

Reviewed: Apr. 29, 2012
This is the BEST meal I've cooked in a long time, on or off this site!! Had all the ingredients on hand, my only substitution/addition was 2-3 TB of curry powder for the curry paste and a can of lite coconut milk as suggested by others. What a WONDERFUL, fragrant blend of flavors, and quick and easy way to make a better than restaurant dinner!!! YUM...!!

Beef Stew IV

Reviewed: Feb. 17, 2010
Mmmmm! Started late, so I didn't have time to do stew in a slowcooker, but really liked stove top results better as everything was less mushy with more defined tastes. I added onion and garlic powder, Italian seasoning, and salt-free Spike to the flour to toss w/ meat, added one can of salt free diced tomatoes, and celery in with the veggies, but otherwise followed recipe pretty closely. At the last minute, couldn't resist adding on some bisquick dumplings (found on one of the other stew recipes) but they didn't cook up as well as I hoped... This is a WONDERFUL comfort food for a cold evening!! Warms up the hous and your belly!!!

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.

Kathy's Southern Corn Pudding

Reviewed: Jan. 1, 2011
Good comfort food! I added a dash of nutmeg, cloves, and cinnamon, which changed the color, but made my kitchen smell like a chai tea was "brewing" in the oven!

Bowler Beef Marinade

Reviewed: Jan. 28, 2011
Tasty marinade!! Easy to find ingredients, moments to put together, YUM!! Mixed it all up, poured it in a ziploc bag, and placed london broil cut in the the marinade before leaving for work. 10+ hrs. later, I broiled it in the oven for about 15 min. each side, and served with baked potato and a salad. Great flavor, super tender meat!! Might marinate over night next time... Thanks!!

Mashed Potato 'n' Parsnip

Reviewed: Feb. 13, 2011
Interesting taste combo... I doubled the potatoes, since they were smaller, as with the carrots, but otherwise kept the recipe as is. Great blend of flavors!

Oven Roasted Red Potatoes

Reviewed: Dec. 24, 2010
Good, basic roast potato recipe... I mixed red and russet potatoes, as that's what I had, plus half an onion, and cut the recipe in half, but otherwise didn't change a thing. Baked for about an hour at 375F, than broiled about 5 more for some extra crunch. Might use a bit less olive oil next time, as they came out a bit "un-crisp!!" Still tasted great though...!!!

Orange Curried Chicken

Reviewed: Jan. 23, 2011
I will sub a dash of soy sauce for water next time. I added a dash of ginger and also used breast tenders and served with improvised "Chinese style" white rice w/ veggies. The sauce was watery, but blended well with the rice. Quick, easy, and really flavorful!!

Sweet and Sour Meatballs I

Reviewed: Dec. 13, 2010
Bringing these tomorrow to a holiday office potluck. I tripled the recipe, substituted onion powder and flakes for the onions, added garlic powder and Italian seasoned breadcrumbs to the meatballs, which I baked for approx. 15 min. They will marinate overnight in the fridge (in the crock pot) and hopefully soak up even more of the wonderful sweet/tangy flavors I couldn't resist trying out tonight! Thanks for a quick and easy crowd-pleaser (I'm hoping.....!!)
