Slow Cooker Butter Chicken

Reviewed: Aug. 20, 2012
Granted, I'm no expert on Indian-style dishes, but this turned out really well. I couldn't find all of the required seasonings in my store, so I bought a premade jar of yellow curry sauce, then added the yogurt, tomato paste, etc. I'm sure the original version of the recipe is much better, but even with my modifications I was pleasantly surprised.

Jif® Peanut Butter and Jelly Cookies

Reviewed: Dec. 10, 2011
The peanut butter taste is subtle, which is nice with the jelly so it's not overpowering. Don't change the thing in the recipe - it's perfect the way it is :)

Spinach Dip with Water Chestnuts

Reviewed: Mar. 21, 2010
Since this is just like the recipe on the dry vegetable soup mix packet and it had such great reviews, I gave it a try for my first attempt at making spinach dip... Although it's absolutely perfect as-is, no need to change a thing, I used low fat sour cream and mayo, and 16 oz. of spinach because I prefer it that way. The flavor was so great that no one even noticed that I used low fat ingredients! I'll never buy pre-made spinach dip at the store again!

Pumpkin Crunch Cake

Reviewed: Mar. 11, 2010
I've been making this for years and forgot to review it... This is the easiest and tastiest way to serve a pumpkin dessert! It's a little like pumpkin pie, a little like cake, and always gets rave reviews at Thanksgiving. It's on the sweet side, so probably not great for those that like more mellow desserts. Instead of just patting the cake mix down on top of the pumpkin mixture, I sprinkle a little of the cake mix on top, then combine it with the pumpkin mix before sprinkling the rest of the cake mix on top. This gives it a more even transition from the cake-like part to the pumpkin pie-like part. Enjoy!

Irish Cream Bundt Cake

Reviewed: Mar. 11, 2010
I've been making this cake for years and forgot to review it... Always gets rave reviews, and it so easy to make. One of my favorites, especially at St. Patrick's Day! I never change a thing - the recipe is perfect as-is.

Meaty Spaghetti Sauce

Reviewed: Jan. 2, 2010
Excellent base recipe for a meaty sauce, but for my taste it needed a couple changes. I made it according to the recipe except I used hot pork sausage (which was awesome, so I'll be including it again in the future too), but next time, I'll omit the bell pepper that added a little too much sweetness, I'll add red wine and a little more bouillion. I also had to add about 1/3 cup of water this time, as the sauce was more like a chili than a sauce consistency. Other than that, the flavor was tasty and we really enjoyed it!

Risotto with Asparagus

Reviewed: Sep. 20, 2009
I added mushrooms and a little tomato sauce to mirror the flavor in the grilled marinated shrimp that we topped the risotto off with, and it was perfect. Wouldn't change anything, thanks!

Ultimate Frozen Strawberry Margarita

Reviewed: Sep. 20, 2009
Great strawberry taste that's not too sweet, and super easy to make. No changes necessary - this one's a keeper!

Almost No Fat Banana Bread

Reviewed: Jun. 28, 2009
Super easy and very tasty way to make a healthy version of banana bread. Next time I'll cut down the sugar a little, as it was on the sweet side for my taste. Also, the texture came out a little more spongy than I would have preferred, so I'll have to make adjustments to get it a little heavier. But as-is, this a great recipe that I'll be making again and again!

Peanut Butter Chocolate Cake

Reviewed: Jun. 19, 2009
I only made the filling from this recipe, so I can't judge the rest of it... However, the filling was PERFECT! Made a store-bought mix and used this filling in the middle, and it turned out great. Just the right amount of peanut butter flavor. Great consistency that works well as filling.

Chocolate Cluster-Peanut Butter Cake

Reviewed: Jun. 19, 2009
The frosting was way too soft and runny. I should have trusted my instincts when I saw the ingredients, but decided to give it a try. Won't make that mistake again. The flavor was amazing, but it ran down the sides of the cake into a blob on the tray. Might be okay if you use a 9x13 pan and only frost the top, but not for a layer cake.

Capers and Halibut

Reviewed: May 4, 2009
I had 2 lbs of halibut, so I doubled the amount of wine, added a little more garlic, and used 2/3 cup butter and 3 tsp capers w/liquid. I also sprinkled the halibut with a lemon/dill spice blend and added 2 tsp of lemon juice to the sauce. Turned out amazing!

Slow Cooker Carnitas

Reviewed: May 3, 2009
Made the recipe as directed, but after shredding the pork, I put it on a cookie sheet and broiled the meat for about 5 min. to get the top crispy. It was outstanding and my husband couldn't stop raving about it. We ate the meat in tacos with corn tortillas with onions, cilantro, and salsa. Even I (who doesn't normally care for carnitas) loved this recipe, thanks!

Easy Hummus

Reviewed: Feb. 27, 2009
Added a little salt, garlic and olive oil and it turned out perfectly! No more buying hummus at the store now that I know it's this easy and inexpensive to get the same results at home.

Baked Asparagus with Balsamic Butter Sauce

Reviewed: Feb. 26, 2009
I only had margarine, so I don't think we got the full effect of the recipe. However, it was still very tasty even though it didn't have the same taste real butter would have allowed. The combination of the butter flavor with the soy and vinegar seemed odd when reading the recipe, but it actually works very well together, especially on the asparagus. Will definitely try again with butter next time.

Slow Cooker Beef Stew I

Reviewed: Feb. 24, 2009
I would have given this recipe 5 stars simply because it's so easy, but it also required a little bit of adjusting. Added one more can of beef broth to give it enough liquid. Then it also needed to be thickened up at the end for a more stew-like consistency. I also added seasonings, and next time might just add in a packet of beef stew seasonings to keep it simple.

Filet Mignon with Rich Balsamic Glaze

Reviewed: Feb. 14, 2009
This recipe was good as a guideline, but to prevent having the balsamic overpower the flavor of the filet, I reduced the amount of vinegar and wine when cooking the steaks - down to just a splash of each. I marinaded the steaks in a little worcestershire, soy, and steak seasoning for about a half hour before cooking, and the end result was outstanding.

Prosciutto Wrapped Asparagus

Reviewed: Feb. 14, 2009
My husband loved it but I thought the saltiness of the prosciutto overpowered the flavors of the cheese and asparagus. Next time it might be worth wrapping bunches of 4-5 asparagus stems instead of just 3 to help improve the ratio of asparagus to prosciutto. But overall a fun side dish with attractive presentation, so I'd definitely try it again.

Guacamole

Reviewed: Feb. 1, 2009
I used this recipe as a general guide and the result was awesome! Didn't include the cayenne pepper, and I doubled the recipe. This was my first time making guacamole and it turned out so well I'll definitely be making it again!

Herbed Mushrooms with White Wine

Reviewed: Jan. 18, 2009
I've been looking for a good mushroom recipe and this definitely fits the bill! Followed the recipe exactly and even my husband, who normally won't eat mushrooms, complimented me on how good they were. The dish is impressive enough to serve for guests as well.
