Slow Cooker Vegetable Soup

Reviewed: Sep. 24, 2014
Wasnt bad, but I agree with the gummy feeling/taste review of Carlin A. Wont make again but if you prefer a brothy soup, this is more of a stewy feel.

Auto Parts Chicken

Reviewed: Nov. 27, 2012
great recipe, and great for leftovers as well. I made herb dumplings for the top of mine. Added some peas during the last 10min or so, probably about 2teaspoons of poultry seasoning, and used 2T of butter(rather than 1 and 1 oil) I used 2 very large leeks,2 celery, just the white parts, and to be honest, if you cut it small enough, you'd never know there was leek in there! Everyone cleans off their plate, almost to the licking stage. Try to cut your veggies large as you would stew. (2inch potatoes,, and evenly. Carrots seem to take the longest to cook! I mistakenly added the flour to the broth (well stirred), it was nice and thick! Would make again. Its sort of like a cross between a stew and the inside of potpie :P Love the big chicken breasts rather than cubes, as you get a full cut-able serving of meat, rather than meat fibers disintegrating in the liquid.

Peach Coffee Cake II

Reviewed: Sep. 20, 2012
used greek yogurt, fresh peaches. was a bit difficult to spread out but using the dollop technique it worked. Double the topping, you wont regret it! I did add a tiny bit of saigon cinnamon to the batter, as others said it was pretty bland, and I only had stoneground whole wheat flour on me and it was great out of the oven.

Rich 'N Thick Hot Chocolate

Reviewed: Feb. 26, 2010
i didnt boil it, perhaps i should have, but mixing water and chocolate seemed so weird plus boiling it.... i know if making chocolates you should never get water in chocolate as it will make it gritty... but maybe i'll try boiling it. Problem was that it was not thick at all. Tastes great, not gritty... but definitely not thick.

Added tiny bit (1/4t)salt, and doubled the vanilla, loved how they stayed soft for days afterwards. Didnt add the walnuts and they made 11 cookies. Used white/milk choc and semi sweet choc chips. Will make again, increasing salt to at least 1/2 t. Used salted butter. Roommates asked for them again asap.

Chocolate Wave Zucchini Bread

Reviewed: Sep. 5, 2009
Would definitely make again. Used butter instead of shortening, added 1/3 cup wheat germ. About 1/4 cup more zucchini too, packed down. Looks soo strange when its mixed up b4 U add the dry ingredients. Turned out just fine and cooked in 1hr. GREAT with chocolate nutella spread on it! Didnt have any choc chips to add tho.. so the thinly spread nutella adds YUM! SOO pretty! TIP: Dump out half of the batter into the pan and use the same bowl to mix in the cocoa! Save yourself a dish! :)

Chicken Pot Pie IX

Reviewed: Sep. 17, 2006
I didnt have any celery, but added a cup and a half of cubed potato. Also added 3 Tablespoons of Parsley to add some color, and half a red pepper,1cup of corn. I only added the corn/peas/red pepper after the carrots/potato were tender. I used a half a small red onion instead of a yellow one. I used homemade chicken broth. Instead of using pie crust i used biscuit dough from the E-Z Drop recipe on this site with W/W flour as that is all i had. This made too much for one pie plate, so made two. Would make again, but would use some poultry seasoning or other spices.

Simple Maple Syrup

Reviewed: Sep. 15, 2006
I usually buy the aunt jemima type table syrup for many of my housemates as they prefer it over real maple syrup...This is an excellent substitute and much healthier considering there is no crazy chemicals in it or additives! I use 3/4cup dark brown and 1cup white sugar and real vanilla extract (i dont like artificial flavorings). I let the water come to a boil in the pot, then add the sugars and simmer gently for about 5 mins. I check the consistency with a metal spoon and let it cool to see if it has the appropriate 'feeling' to it before removing it from the heat and adding a 1/4cup of honey and then transferring it to a glass jar. I keep mine in the fridge and have never had a problem with it crystalizing. I warm up the syrup before serving if it has been in the fridge and use it for waffles and pancakes. I will be experimenting with other types of extracts and using it for smoothies/ice cream etc... in the future. Will try with splenda as well. :) VERY cheap to make compared to storebought!

Quick and Spicy Fish Fillets

Reviewed: Mar. 23, 2006
used crushed fiberone and organic multigrain flakes.. and milk to put it on. Just made the one serving.used about 1/6 of a cup of each, parmesan and crushed cereal. was very good, will make again. Probably add more spices of some sort... found it kind of plain :)but still good way to use up some cereal and adds vitamins to your meal if you used fortified cereal :)

The Best Rolled Sugar Cookies

Reviewed: Mar. 17, 2006
very good.. :) taste.. and to roll out.. i creamed the sugar/butter then the eggs/vanilla all in a stand mixer and then did the dry ingredients by hand(didnt have a bowl big enough for the stand mixer). i cut out circles with cutter dipped in icing sugar/flour mixture.. to be decorated later (see pics) i divided the dough into 3 sections, wrapped in plastic and put them in the freezer for about 30 min or so.. then rolled 2 sections out and cooked one night then did the other the next morning. when rolling them out i used a 50/50 mixture of icing sugar/flour so as to not make them too 'floury' as i have read other reviewers say. Also doubled the vanilla. baked at 400F on parchment just until the cookies didnt look 'wet' anymore in the oven.. and they turned out good! had over baked my test cookies so learned from this:) enjoy! will definitely make again. i like it that the dough can be rerolled many times as well.. :) I also made a few (not pictured) that i made little balls with and pushed out with a sugared glass (wet the bottom of the glass with some dough first before dippin in sugar ;) ) so they can be made that way too if in a hurry! Thanks for the recipe!
