Two Ingredient Pumpkin Cake

Reviewed: Oct. 11, 2014
I've been curious about the whole "dump cake" concept for a while now, so a beautiful fall day and all the (2!) ingredients available was a perfect excuse. I did add a good shake or two of pumpkin pie spice and a 1/4 of a cup or so of apple sauce for extra moisture, cooked 'em up as muffins/cupcakes, and am loving how quick and easy they were, how GREAT they are making my kitchen smell, and (not!) how loudly they're calling me to eat them all in one sitting!! ;-)

Applesauce Baked Oatmeal

Reviewed: Sep. 27, 2014
SUPER easy, incredibly adaptable, and DELICOUS!! I made it 50-50 white and brown sugar (will prob. go all brown next time), added raisins and cinnamon, and, as suggested, baked it in a 8 x 8 square Pyrex pan. Topped it w/more applesauce. Next time might add yogurt!! 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...

Easy Snack Wraps

Reviewed: Jul. 12, 2014
Sooooooo quick and easy, and soooooooo yum that I didn't get a chance to take pictures!! TONS of possible variations-- I made 'em for a big July 4th party and made them turkey/turkey ham/roast beef. Also used low fat veggie cream cheese, subbed spinach for the lettuce, and left out the tomatoes (too soggy!). The regular, wheat, and spinach tortilla rolls chilled in the fridge for a couple of hours, then were sliced up, arranged "festively," and were gone before I knew it!!! 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!!

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!

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!!

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!!

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!!

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!!

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!

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.

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!!!

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...!!

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!!

Spinach and Spaghetti Squash Quiche

Reviewed: Dec. 26, 2010
Decided to use the whole squash, so I doubled the recipe, except kept it a just 3 whole eggs, and 1 can (12 oz.) plus just a splash more reg. (skim) milk, as the mixture seemed kind of runny. For extra flavor, I added onion and garlic powder, Mrs. Dash, some parmesan cheese and a bit of nutmeg. Two deeelish. quiches! Will make again, possibly in just one casserole dish...

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!!
