Easy A La King Biscuit Casserole

Reviewed: Aug. 23, 2004
I thought this was pretty good, but both my fiance' and I agreed it was more like "green peas a la king" ... I think it was my fault though as I used canned peas (recipe didn't really specify). Plus, the bottom of the biscuits didn't cook all the way...was it supposed to be like this?

Cajun Chicken

Reviewed: Aug. 24, 2004
very yummy! I even goofed on the recipe but it still came out delicious... It's only me and my fiance' so I bought a 3 pack of chicken breasts and completely forgot to cut down the recipe until I'd already poured in a whole cup of vegetable oil and a whole tablespoon of Tony Chachere's (the best cajun seasoning out there)...once I did that I realized my mistake, but with all the vegetable oil, the spices were definitely not overpowering (as a lot of them ended up slipping off in the vegetable oil mixture). Oh, and I also cooked them in the oven at 350 degrees for 30 minutes (with very minimal oil in the pan). Delish!

Bob's Awesome Lasagna

Reviewed: Sep. 7, 2004
Yep, definitely needs more sauce. I had no sauce leftover for the very top layer, so I just left the top layer sauceless (i.e. the very top layer was the lasagna noodles)... BIG MISTAKE! It made the top noodles hard and crunchy, or as my husband referred to it... "armored lasagna". Otherwise, it was very good. (and in case you run out of sauce, too, the top layer softens up after a night in the fridge)

The Best Chicken Salad Ever

Reviewed: Sep. 7, 2004
DEEEE-LISH! I was wary about trying out a chicken salad recipe, but am very very pleased with how it turned out! I used Helman's Mayonnaise for the "creamy salad dressing" (ecch! I do not like Miracle Whip so that wasn't an option), and I used one can of "premium white chicken breast chunks" in place of the chicken breast halves and everything else I followed to a T; this worked out perfectly. Thanks!!

Slow Cooker Taco Soup

Reviewed: Sep. 7, 2004
Very very yummy... I too added the packet of ranch dressing, and I used black beans in place of the kidney beans. It was perfectly seasoned for me, though a friend (with Mexican heritage) added Tobasco (a louisiana hot sauce). My husband's only request? Next time make cornbread, too!

Awesome Slow Cooker Pot Roast

Reviewed: Sep. 10, 2004
Followed this recipe to a T and it was delicious!!! I cooked it for 10 hours on low and it was so tender I only used a fork when eating the dinner. Yum! Will definitely be making again.

Baked Tilapia in Garlic and Olive Oil

Reviewed: Sep. 21, 2004
This was terrific! I substituted garlic powder for the crushed garlic, omitted the onion, used cajun seasoning for the cayenne pepper, and didn't allow it to marinate at all... just popped it in the oven and voila! 30 minutes later we had a fantastic fish dinner! Yum!!

Slow Cooker Beef Stew III

Reviewed: Sep. 24, 2004
This was very good... I omitted the mushrooms (hubby doesn't like 'em) and used the beef broth in place of the water. Still found it to be on the bland side, but being as I've never made a stew in my life, it was very good! (salt and pepper helped) (oh, and I cooked it for 10hrs on low, meat was VERY tender!!)

Guacamole

Reviewed: Sep. 27, 2004
Overall, very good. I thought it to be a bit bland, but then again, I tried to substitute Tobasco for cayenne pepper. (also added a few dashes of lemon juice)

Easy Slow Cooker French Dip

Reviewed: Sep. 27, 2004
Excellent!!! The au jus was the icing on the cake. The only problem (if you can call it that) I had was I cooked it on low for eight hours, and let it sit on "warm" setting for two and a half more (waiting on company...grrr...) and the meat was so tender that it was falling apart as I took it out to try and slice it. So we had thick and meaty French dip sandwiches instead of sliced French dip sandwiches. It was still very very delicious!!!

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!!

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!!!!!!

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!

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!

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! ;-)

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).

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!

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.

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!

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! :)
