Slow Cooker Chops

Reviewed: Jun. 17, 2014
With the suggested changes included (from other's tips), it is 5 stars. Here is what I did: Added seasoned salt to each side and browned the chops in oil. Added condensed beef broth into pan after chops cooked to get the bits from browning. Added mushroom soup and about 1 extra can water. Tossed in a handful of frozen diced onions and a minced garlic clove along with a pinch of general seasoning from our local olive oil shop that has a few dried red bell peppers, parsley, thyme. Next time will also add 1-2 T white wine. Cooked on high for 6 hours and did not add potatoes or green beans (hub doesn't like). Served over mashed potatoes with peas on the side. These were tender and very tasty. Can't wait to eat the leftovers!

Peanut Butter Cocoa No-Bake Cookies

Reviewed: Dec. 13, 2013
Love these and have been making them for years. Agree with previous reviewers to reduce sugar to about 1 and 3/4 c (I don't care for these with brown sugar - white is better to my taste), no need for Karo, use rolled oats (not quick cooking or steel cut). I combine everything except vanilla and cook together for a minimum of 2 minutes (softens up the oats) and use a whisk to keep stirring. Let sit 1 min and then drop them out. I also leave out the actual peanuts - pb is sufficient. One of my favorite cookies from childhood!

Sweet Dinner Rolls

Reviewed: Nov. 27, 2013
These are the bomb! Made a test batch for hubby before launching into roll production for Thanksgiving. Melt in your mouth delish! Followed the recipe exactly, and they turned out perfectly! Thanks for making me look good with the relatives! (Now I am making them for Christmas as well!) If the batch is too large for rolls, you can use half to make Cinnamon rolls, which turned out great also. Followed another reviewer's suggestion to make balls for rolls (not risen) and freeze for later. When you are ready to use them, put them out to thaw at room temperature and rise until about double in size, baking at 350 until done.

Flax and Sunflower Seed Bread

Reviewed: Nov. 9, 2013
This was my first attempt at making bread in my breadmaker, and it turned out to be one fabulous first bread@! Used roasted unsalted sunflower seeds. Set breadmaker for dough; my breadmaker instructions say to put these in at the start of the 2nd knead cycle, which was 30 minutes into the dough process. Let it rise in a greased loaf pan and baked at 350 for 25 minutes. PERFECTO! We changed what we were eating for dinner so we could have this bread with it. We are in love with this bread and will be making it again. I know it will also be great as toast with jam on it~ Thanks for a great recipe! By the way, my grocery didn't have whole wheat bread flour available, so I just used regular bread flour for the whole amount of flour - no problem. Did not change any of the other ingredients - perfect as is.

Apple Crisp II

Reviewed: Oct. 21, 2013
Yum yum! This is so good straight out of the oven with caramel ice cream! I swapped out the water for apple cider and did cut the liquid down a bit as others suggested. Added a pinch of dried lemon peel and a pinch of sea salt; instead of cinnamon, I used apple pie spice. Definitely a keeper!

Cinnamon Pumpkin Waffles

Reviewed: Oct. 12, 2013
Loved these! As others suggested, I added 1 t vanilla and subbed Stevia for the sugar. Used all olive oil (butter infused flavor) instead of butter/oil. I also added 1 t lemon juice to skim milk and let it set for 5 minutes to make "buttermilk". Waffles were light, fluffy and delicious with the added bonus that they are much healthier than other recipes out there. We ate these with a side of maple flavored turkey sausage. Thanks for an awesome recipe!

Winter Blossom's Often Requested Ham Salad

Reviewed: Oct. 11, 2013
I love ham salad and used this recipe as a base - it is so tasty! I sub light mayo and use sweet relish instead of dill. I also add a dash of celery salt and sometimes a tiny dash of garlic powder. LOVE it with mixed greens on toasted rye bread. Thanks Winter- you have a winner here :)

Amazingly Good Eggnog

Reviewed: Dec. 26, 2012
After our store ran out of eggnog, I made this using 2% milk and heavy cream. If I can find it next time, I will use light cream for health reasons, but this was very rich, creamy and delicious! I also agree to reduce the sugar to 1 cup. Left out the rum and we used Jack Daniels instead. Perfect!

Slow-Cooker Posole

Reviewed: Nov. 5, 2012
I want to gush about this recipe, because it turned out to be SOO good!! I went to school in Mexico City and had been craving this dish, which Mexican mama used to make. This is very close to her recipe- savory and delicious- to say nothing of easy! I used center cut boneless pork chops and cut into cubes and split the enchilada sauce into half mild (frontera red chile flavor) and half medium (chi chis brand). Only cooked 4 and 1/2 hours on high as I didn't have time to cook it longer. Meat was still tender in shorter time but cook longer if you can to allow time for the flavors to meld. Left out the chilis 'cause I didn't have any but added dry red bell pepper flakes and changed the onions to diced instead of sliced. Subbed beef broth for water, and added the fresh cilantro and a squeeze of fresh lime juice just before serving. Don't change the spices - they are perfect! Muchas gracias - es una receta fabulosa!

Bob's Awesome Lasagna

Reviewed: Oct. 28, 2012
A great recipe! To healthify it slightly, I used 2% mozzarella cheese, whole wheat lasagna noodles and Egg Beaters instead of the egg suggested by others. I used Wolfgang Puck 4 Cheese pasta sauce. Hubby LOVED the lasagna and told me to please give it 5 stars. I have to agree- delicious!

Zesty Slow Cooker Chicken Barbecue

Reviewed: Oct. 16, 2012
Absolutely fabulous! Due to schedule, I cooked it the night before on high for about 4 hours. Shredded the meat and let it sit all night in the sauce in the fridge. Heated it up the next day to eat it--so delicious! I used fresh chicken breast as did not have frozen. I used Meijer Carolina BBQ sauce. Also, I had no italian dressing, I subbed 1/4 c of Newmans Own Oil and Vinegar dressing instead of the 1/2 c italian dressing; still added brown sugar and worcestershire sauce as called for in recipe. My husband told me to give it a ten before he realized the rating system only goes up to 5 stars! :) We ate it on sub rolls with coleslaw on top. Thank you for an amazing BBQ!! P.S. I love garlic, but this recipe DOES NOT NEED it!~

Whole Grain Waffles

Reviewed: Apr. 21, 2012
Delicious! Will put this in my regular breakfast rotation! I made similar changes to those suggested: swapped out the canola for applesauce (making it 1/2 c applesauce and no canola oil), swapped old fashioned oats for flax (didn't have flax), used wheat bran for wheat germ and whole wheat flour for the whole wheat pastry flour. Also, instead of 1T sugar, used 2t Splenda and 1 t brown sugar. Sifted flour for added fluffiness. Batter slightly too runny so would start with 1 and 1/2 c milk and add a bit more as needed to thin it down.

Fresh Cherry Crisp

Reviewed: Oct. 31, 2011
LOVED IT! I made some changes others suggested and incorporated my own. I ended up with more cherries and less topping: 4 and 1/2 c cherries (I used frozen), 3/4 white sugar, 1/4 cup tapioca (instead of flour) and 1 t vanilla. For topping, 1/2 c flour, 1/2 c rolled oats,1/4 c white sugar, 1/2 c brown sugar. Leave out shortening. Bake in 8x8 or 9x9 for 50-60 minutes. Less topping and more cherries make me a happy girl. Serve with vanilla ice cream. My hubby ate three helpings on his go-round.

Country Green Beans

Reviewed: Aug. 9, 2011
Loved these. Due to diet restrictions, I used 1/2 T light butter instead of 1/4 c butter and 1 slice cooked bacon instead of the ham. Still delicious! Agree that using veggie or chicken broth instead of water gives them more flavor. YUM - thanks for a great way to fix green beans!

Old-Fashioned Scalloped Corn

Reviewed: May 21, 2011
Loved this corn! I had to use Ritz crackers (didn't have saltines) and it was still wonderful. Used 1 can kernel corn and 2 cans creamed. Perfect combo. Thanks for a great recipe :)

Pesto Shrimp Pasta

Reviewed: May 17, 2011
Absolutely fantastic! Made it as another reviewer suggested - steamed the asparagus separately. Sauteed the steamed asparagus with mushrooms, then added shrimp, then sauce and finally threw the cooked pasta into the same skillet with everything else. (I used farfelle bow tie pasta-multigrain variety- cooked al dente). Topped with a tablespoon of grated Parmesan per serving, it was totally delicious! Similar to a dish I have had at Bahama Breeze but not nearly as fattening. Used slighly less basil. Don't forget the pepper flakes :) Highly recommend this dish

Grandmother's Bread Pudding

Reviewed: Nov. 15, 2010
WOW I am not that big a bread pudding fan but this was FABULOUS Comfort food at its best! And the custard is out of this world! My husband and I both ate several helpings when it was warm right out of the oven... and had to take a moment to stop and remember to breathe! :)

Mexican Bean Salad

Reviewed: Oct. 26, 2010
I am in love with this bean salad! I saved my own custom version but if the original weren't so good, I would not have any --which would be a travesty. Just overwhelmingly delicious and a great way to get in fiber. Thanks a million Karen!!

Sour Cherry Pie

Reviewed: Oct. 10, 2010
SO DELICIOUS! I used 6 c frozen tart cherries (no need to defrost-use them frozen) instead of canned. Instead of all sugar, used 3/4 c sugar and 3/4 c Splenda granular (this is the Splenda that is cup for cup equivalent of sugar). No need to add extra water or liquid. Suggestion: If you have time, mix all pie ingredients together in a bowl and leave on the counter for about 10 minutes to let the cherries thaw slightly and absorb tapioca before you bake. I always do this when baking any type of fruit pie and using tapioca, and it seems to produce better/tastier pies. If you don't have time, charge ahead and get baking! My husband called for his mother and rolled his eyes back in his head over this one! :)

Basic Chicken Salad

Reviewed: Aug. 22, 2010
Delicious! I'm picky about chicken salad but loved this one. Used rotisserie chicken from Sam's Club and slivered toasted almonds (bought 'em that way from Trader Joe's). I threw all ingredients including a few addl spices (garlic and onion powder, a dash of seasoned salt) into the mini food processor. Blended nicely, it was great on toasted wheat bread with mixed salad greens! I used lite Miracle Whip to reduce calories - still fabulous!
