Slow Cooker Ham

Reviewed: Apr. 9, 2007
Fantastic! My boyfriend said this was the best ham he'd ever eaten. I added some ground cloves, ground ginger, dry mustard and orange zest to the brown sugar which made it taste a bit like a cumberland sauce. This is the only way I want to make ham ever again!

Slow Cooker Lasagna

Reviewed: Mar. 28, 2007
I must admit I’m always looking for a decent slow cooker recipe. We don’t have Bob Evans products here in Canada, so I used some fantastic local Galloping Goose garlic sausage that I removed from the casings. I also couldn’t deal with the lack of veggies. I sautéed some onions, peppers, mushrooms, garlic and spinach to add to the mix. Also, a dash of Vermouth, because it makes jarred spaghetti sauce taste much better. This is a stew, more than a lasagne. You need to break the noodles up smaller than half to mix them in properly. I would even suggest, cooking noodles or pasta separately and then adding them to the crock pot when you add the last of the cheese. The no-bake noodles were a bit gummy. Not the prettiest stuff to look at, but still tasty.

Salisbury Steak

Reviewed: Mar. 9, 2007
Where on Earth has this been all my life! Rainy day diner dinners of my childhood are leaping to life and I am overjoyed. I didn't really even fiddle with this recipe. I did add a little garlic powder to the patties and I sauteed a few mushrooms in the pan before I added the gravy and used a teenie bit of brandy to deglaze the pan, but man, am I impressed. I feel like a sweaty old guy in a white t-shirt and greasy apron made this for me. My only note is to use a non-stick skillet!

Hawaiian Hot Dog Surprise

Reviewed: Feb. 18, 2007
I must admit, I'm really happy I found this recipe. I couldn't bring myself to add the full amount of sugar, I don't think my pancreas could take that. After playing with it, we renamed these Hawaiian Pizza Beans. I used 1 pkg of smokies, one drained tin of pineapple chunks (my boyfriend drank the juice), two tins of pork and tomato beans, 3/4 tin of tomato sauce, 1 Tbs oregano and 1 tsp garlic powder. Not the exact recipe, but very tasty. We topped it off with mozzarela cheese for the full effect. This is the new camping food on our list. Yay!

Caribbean-Spiced Roast Chicken

Reviewed: Feb. 16, 2007
This was a delicious rub, but for some reason, it didn't really penetrate the chicken. Still very tasty. I think next time I'll make a double batch of the rub and use half with an injector or mixed with a little butter under the skin.

Slow Cooker Guisado Verde

Reviewed: Dec. 13, 2006
Mmmm. So good. I simplified this recipe by substituting 2 jars of Herdez salsa verde for the tomatillos and chiles and doubled up on the garlic because I LOVE garlic. I also substituted Dos Equis beer for the water. This was killer. So delicious and so easy. It would make an excellent base for a green pork chilli if you wanted to add a couple of cans of white beans as well. Hominy would be a fun addition too. I will make this again and again. Mmmmmm. Also, a note, if you can acquire Mexican oregano, your tastebuds will thank you. It has an amazing earthy flavour that you just can't replicate with anything else.

Buttermilk Pancakes II

Reviewed: Nov. 19, 2006
We just had these for breakfast. They're deliciously light and fluffy. I added a little vanilla extract to the wet mix and some frozen blueberries to the dry. I will definitely add this recipe to my collection.

Great Pumpkin Dessert

Reviewed: Oct. 12, 2006
This stuff was fantastic. A bit like a cross between pumpkin bread pudding/ cake and crumble. We used a Duncan Hines yellow cake mix, which was a bit too sweet, so I think next time, we'll try a Doctor Oetker organic mix, as they're a little mellower. But there will definitely be a next time. Sooo good. Also, we substituted pecans for walnuts which was delicious as well. What a quick and easy recipe!
