Lemon-Pepper Salmon II

Reviewed: Mar. 7, 2005
My husband's exact words were... "Baby, this fish is excellent!!" Yay! I too thought it was very good and very simple. Only thing I did differently was to bake in the oven for 30 minutes at 350.

Stuffed Green Peppers I

Reviewed: Mar. 7, 2005
This was pretty good. I'm not a huge fan of bell peppers in particular, but overall I'd give it two thumbs up. I didn't have a can of whole peeled tomatoes so I used a can of stewed tomatoes. I also added some shredded cheese to the top just about 5 minutes before pulling them out of the oven. The hubby said "very good, but less tomato sauce next time" (little did he know it was tomato soup!), but he's not a big fan of anything tomato. Regardless, I'll probably use just one can of tomato soup next time.

Best Beef and Broccoli

Reviewed: Mar. 4, 2005
I don't know if I should really be rating this as I made major changes, but I kept the same basic idea and it was delicious, so here goes... I thought this was really good. The changes I made were to put the round steak (whole, not sliced) into the slowcooker along with the cream of broccoli soup, water, and soy sauce. Cooked it on low for 10hrs and when I got home from work, added the chopped broccoli florets into the pot... let those cook for about 45 minutes, and voila! Dinner was served (and it was yummy too!). I would have followed the recipe, but I was just too lazy and afraid that the steak would take too long to get tender (DH and I are starving by the time I get home from work and an hour to an hour and a half is an eternity on an empty stomach!). But anyway, thanks Linda for the inspiration for a new meal in our rotation!

Slow Cooker London Broil

Reviewed: Feb. 25, 2005
DH and I thought this was *okay* ... nothing particularly WOW!-ed us about it. Somewhat similar to the Awesome Slow Cooker Pot Roast recipe found on here, but we liked that one better.

Easy Salmon

Reviewed: Feb. 17, 2005
YUM! This was very good, very easy, and is definitely a keeper. Only thing I changed was omitting the mushrooms and that's only because DH doesn't like them. But I must say thanks for the recipe because DH told me I was "on my way to becoming a master chef". Woohoo!! :)

Rempel Family Meatloaf

Reviewed: Feb. 15, 2005
I followed the recipe to a T and it was very good...hubby even said to add it to the meal rotation! The only thing is I think I'll use only half a packet of the onion soup mix next time...the onion flavor seemed a little strong. But other than that, great recipe, thanks!

Skillet Chicken Picante

Reviewed: Feb. 12, 2005
This was pretty good. I'm giving it 3 stars because the hubby said it was "too tomato-y" and I partially agree...it could use a little bit more substance. At first I was worried that the sauce wouldn't thicken because 20 minutes had passed and it was still fairly liquidy, but I just kept it on the stove a bit longer, which worked out with the timing of my side dish. But we added cheese *and* sour cream to the burritos which gave it a bit more "oomph".

Amy's Spicy Beans and Rice

Reviewed: Feb. 12, 2005
This was really good... I too drained about half of the liquid, but I later wished I'd kept all of the liquid because I personally don't like semi-dry beans and rice. But it was a very good recipe! The only other change I made was to omit the black olives because the hubby doesn't like them (oh, and I used two jalapenos from a can because I couldn't find fresh!). Thanks for the recipe!

Slow-Cooker Pepper Steak

Reviewed: Nov. 30, 2004
Excellent! I bought the "sirloin strips for stir-fry" and cooked on high for only an hour and a half and it was delicious! Meat was cut small enough that it didn't take that long. It was a bit on the salty side (and I omitted the tsp of salt), but I'm sure a switch to the low sodium broth would help that. Hubby loved it too!! (oh, p.s. I used 3 tbsp cornstach & 6tbsp soy sauce per another reviewer's suggestion; the consistency was perfect, but maybe less soy would also lower the sodium content) Update to original review: I've made this at least 4 more times since, and it seems like only the first 2 times it came out soooo delish. The last two times it was just "okay" -- not sure exactly what I'm doing different, but it's apparently one of those recipes that is highly dependent on multiple factors (i.e. cooking times, cut of meat, etc.), so if you loved it, be sure to cook it the same way every time!

Thanksgiving Sweet Potatoes

Reviewed: Nov. 29, 2004
I'm not a sweet potato person myself, but made a sweet potato dish for Turkey Day only because my husband requested it. He gave this one two thumbs up! He ate the entire dish by himself (not in one sitting, of course!) and has already requested it again for Christmas -- "and don't change a thing!" he says!

Slow Cooker Mashed Potatoes

Reviewed: Nov. 29, 2004
Yum yum! I also used low-fat cream cheese and sour cream. Everything else I followed to a "T" -- hubby loved it! If hubby loves it, it's a winner by my book! :)

Holiday Dressing

Reviewed: Nov. 29, 2004
yum! this was very good and tasted just like my dad had made it. I'm also a southern girl, and left the bellpeppers out. Plus, I used 3 boiled eggs instead of cracking one raw egg over the mixture. Yummy!

Parmesan Chicken I

Reviewed: Nov. 19, 2004
The hubby didn't care too much for this particular dish, but I thought it was okay. The only thing was that the chicken was somewhat dry (cooked on low for 10 hrs). The sauce was good, though. I too cooked the rice separately, and sprinkled garlic powder on the chicken.

Basic Bean Soup

Reviewed: Nov. 15, 2004
I thought this soup was okay. I followed the recipe almost exactly... I forgot to add the ketchup, but since it was just to "get the desired color" I guess I didn't miss out on the taste. I added salt and pepper, but it still seemed bland. Could use a few more spices, but it definitely gets points for the nutrition factor!

Bella's Rosemary Red Potatoes

Reviewed: Nov. 5, 2004
Very good! Definitely could have used less butter/oil as others have suggested. I used 1/2 tablespoon of dried rosemary and the hubby said to use even less next time, but I thought it was delicious as was. Cooked at 375 for approximately 45 minutes (they were still a tad hard at 30 minutes).

Black Beans and Rice

Reviewed: Nov. 5, 2004
Yummy! I didn't have any cayenne pepper, so I just added 5-6 dashes of Tobasco. That and I used a low sodium chicken broth per others' suggestions. It was very good! Wrapped it up in a tortilla with some mozzarella and voila! Dinner! The hubby even liked it, and he claims to not be a fan of black beans! ;-)

Awesome Grilled Cheese Sandwiches

Reviewed: Oct. 12, 2004
I must agree... MUCH easier than trying to fry them in a pan! Although mine still came out a big soggy in the middle, though the crust was nice and crispy... my fault, however, as I forgot to flip them and cook for the additional time. Oops! Still very delicious!

Rice with Black Beans

Reviewed: Oct. 12, 2004
Very good! Not the best, but for a pregnant lady craving black beans, this did the trick! I cooked rice separately, simmered for longer than 5 minutes (with cover on) and when I checked on it, it was too liquidy for what I wanted. So I added a second can of beans and simmered for about 15-20 minutes. Very satisfying!

Homemade Focaccia Bread

Reviewed: Oct. 8, 2004
This was absolutely fantastic!! Highly recommended. Much simpler than the other foccacia recipes I've found on here (and cheaper, too, when you start thinking of the costs of spices, especially if you don't already have them at your disposal). I added sea salt as well, although I stubbed my toe a bit on it. Still delicious because it was easy to scrape the sea salt off. A few reviewers noted that you won't need all that flour...I think I may have used more! (probably because I didn't really know what I was doing, I'm still a newbie in the kitching and wasn't sure what "until dough pulls away from side of bowl" meant --I now think it means a thick and heavy consistency, not so liquidy). To sum it up: YUMMMMMM!!!!!!

Southern Potato Salad

Reviewed: Oct. 1, 2004
Mmmmm...I'm from southern Louisiana, and this was just like my daddy's! (and I don't give that compliment out too often) I used two stalks of celery and chopped them in a food processor. Also, I forgot about the salt I put in the boiling water for the potatoes, and stubbed my toe on the cajun seasoning (in place of "salt and pepper to taste") as a result. Eh well...a night in the fridge and that problem was solved! Yum!!
