S.O.B. (South of the Border) Casserole

Reviewed: Feb. 23, 2011
I came across this recipe because I had four packets of turkey gravy left-over from Thanksgiving. When I did an ingredient search this recipe came up. The noodles added to this seem strange. Kind of makes it like a Hamburger Helper meal. I went meatless and used pinto beans instead. This would be better to serve with chips if it didn't have the noodles in it. And definitely needs some cheese.

Wine Cookies (Original Italian)

Reviewed: Feb. 22, 2011
Wasn't sure what to expect with these. They did not smell like cookies at all while they were baking. The dough is pretty soft to work with and when rolling into a log shape they didn't hold the shape very well. And after they cooked I thought the little pinwheels were very unappetizing. Towards the end, I just formed balls and smashed them flat, then dreged them in sugar. As for flavor, they remind me of a little biscuit more than a cookie. Interesting to try, but would not make again.

Chocolate Cavity Maker Cake

Reviewed: Feb. 20, 2011
Cooked for 1 hour and it was dry. Couldn't taste the coffee liqueur at all. I followed some of the advice of using only 1 cup of chocolate chips, but they were mini ones so they kind of got lost. I used mini because I was thinking they would disperse better in the batter, but the batter is so thick that regualr would stay put and not sink. I only had one cup of sour cream so I used that. Definitely wished I would have had the full two cups then I could give this an honest rating. But the biggest let down was using a half cup of Kaluha and not getting any of the flavor from it. That is the main reason I chose this recipe over other ones.

Chunky Applesauce

Reviewed: Feb. 20, 2011
I used a slow cooker and cooked for about 4 hours on high. I used a Braeburn. It held it's shape nicely but I didn't like it's texture. I thought I would like the addition of the vanilla but in the end I had to add double the cinnamon to mask it's flavor. I would also cut back on the sugar, unless you are using a really tart apple like a Granny.

Sue's Hot Fudge Sauce

Reviewed: Feb. 17, 2011
I'm glad I halved the recipe. It makes alot. It was easy to do but I was hoping for a richer chocolate taste. So I added a 1/2 ounce of bittersweet to the 1/2 recipe I was making. That seemed to help. But once this is taken of the burning it firms up pretty quick and then when I tried to reheat it was gritty and greasy. I think I like a fudge sauce with corn syrup better, it helps to get the sauce more ooey-gooey and helps to keep it from being grainy.

Feta Chicken

Reviewed: Feb. 15, 2011
Been making this dish for years. Love it. Love feta. I dredge both sides in bread crumbs so I use more than the recipe states. Then I place in a sprayed 9 x 13. It makes individual servings much easier. I also drizzle with melted butter, as other have suggested. My original recipe cooks at 400 for 25 minutes.

Peanut Butter Fudge Bars

Reviewed: Feb. 14, 2011
This recipe taste so much better if you use butter instead of oil and increase the chocolate chips to 2 cups. I also stir in a cup of nuts and a splash of vanilla at the end of cooking the chocolate mixture. Baking at 325 for 25 minutes makes them less brittle/crumbly and they hold together better. They are rich.

All Day Macaroni and Cheese

Reviewed: Feb. 13, 2011
Slow Cooker Macaroni and Cheese I is the exact same recipe except it uses uncooked noodles. It is definitely better. Way too over-cooked. If you don't like a custard style macaroni and cheese you will not like this recipe. Needs seasoning.

Spicy Kielbasa Soup

Reviewed: Feb. 13, 2011
This was good. I like Hillshire better than Jennie O kielbasa, but the store only had Jennie O. I had to add more pepper flakes to give it some heat. I did't add the zuccini. Don't leave out the step in browning the kielbasa/veggies in the pan, to get them nice and carmel colored. Then deglaze the pan with a bit of the chicken broth and add it to the slow cooker. Glad I added 2/3 cup of barley in the last hour. It helped to bulk up the soup. This would have left the five of still hungry if I didn't add it.

Bulgur Wheat with Dried Cranberries

Reviewed: Feb. 11, 2011
This was good and quick. I reduced the boullion to 1 tsp. You don't really need to cook the bulgur, you can turn off the heat and let it sit for fifteen minutes, then fluff with a fork. Could easily be used as a breakfast if you take out the bouillion and add a little cinnamon. But I made it for lunch so I added some green onions and chopped almonds. In the end, I wish I didn't add the almonds. It added to much crunch and messed with the texture.

Chili Colorado

Reviewed: Feb. 6, 2011
After 3 hours of cooking this was still too soupy for me. So I added 1/2 a pound of cooked pinto beans and cooked for 2 more hours. I also had to double the spice and add a pinch of cayenne to give this the flavor I wanted.

Easy Chicken Fajita Soup

Reviewed: Feb. 5, 2011
I used Taco Bell Fajita Seasoning packet. I cooked the chicken, pepper and onions and then dumped everything in the slow cooker. I added extra beans and corn. Not as good as my regular taco soup, (Slow Cooker Chicken Taco Soup). I added some cilantro, lime and chipotle powder to give it a kick. It was better, but would not make again.

Honey Cranberry Oat Bread

Reviewed: Jan. 31, 2011
After reading the reviews about this bread being too dry, I decided to add one small mashed banana. I scaled the recipe to one loaf. It still came out dry, too dense and it is not sweet enough.

Cranberry Oat Bars

Reviewed: Jan. 31, 2011
Followed the directions and used the 9 x 9 pan. I swapped the butter for the I Can't believe It's Not Butter Sticks. I thought there was too much oat mixture for the amount of cranberry. The cranberry mixture came out way too thin. I could barely get it to fit the pan. As for taste, I could taste the salt, so I would cut back on it. (Could have been my butter choice) I suggest, if trying this recipe to increase the cranberry mixture by another 1/2 and then maybe putting the whole thing in a 9 x 13. Has potential but needs tweaking. I also had to cook mine for about 20 minutes.

Bacon Cheeseburger Upside Down Pizza

Reviewed: Jan. 26, 2011
I used ground turkey and added some seasoning like salt and pepper, garlic and oregano. I also used turkey bacon. I would suggest to brown the veggies first then adding the meat. I didn't use tomatoes because I didn't have any. The cheese and bacon do not come through at all in this recipe. And the top crust is a little funky and barely there when it is all cooked. Too much meat not enough crust. By choosing lower fat/ healthy options I was able to reduce this to 320 calories per serving and only 14 grams of fat.

Awesome Slow Cooker Pot Roast

Reviewed: Jan. 22, 2011
Can't believe this got such high ratings. I followed the advice of a reviewer and used only one can of mushroom and half the water. I thought this lacked body. Too sauce was way too watery and bland. Nothing at all like a gravy. Glad I reduced the water. Maybe if the water was traded out for some red wine it would help make it more hearty. Added veggies but had to pull them out early because they were getting mushy. Easy to do, but I think I will try another recipe.

Sausage Pasta

Reviewed: Jan. 21, 2011
I thought that a whole can of chicken broth for 3/4 pound of pasta would make this watery and soupy. So I used only a half can. I still had to cook it down for quite awhile, because there is way too much liquid. I think that deleting the chicken broth and adding a little white wine would be better. I used ground mild Italian turkey sausage and added red pepper flakes to it. I used four big handfuls of fresh spinach that I threw in, at the end of cooking the sauce. Thought this was going to be better than it was. Just ok. Wouldn't make it again.

Mini Sour Cream Biscuits

Reviewed: Jan. 18, 2011
I used reduced fat Bisquick, reduced fat butter (Can't Believe It's Not Butter), and fat free plain yogurt. They came out pretty good. I left the butter cold and cut it in because that is what makes a flaky biscuit. I doubled the recipe and cooked in a regular size muffin tin for 15 minutes. I added 1/4 Parmesan cheese (diced cheddar would be better), garlic powder and sage. I suggest a pinch of salt. Served with Ham and Bean Soup.

Ham and Bean Soup II

Reviewed: Jan. 18, 2011
I had to doctor this up because it was too bland. I would suggest less water and then add more as needed. It turned out too soupy, so I cooked it for quite a few hours to get it to reduce. I added 2 chicken boullion cubes, a bay leaf, sage, real garlic and used smoked paprika instead of reg. paprika

Lentil Chili

Reviewed: Jan. 13, 2011
Good but a little bland and not enough tomato flavor to make it like a rich tasting chili that I like. I had to increase the time and liquid for the lentils to cook. I also added 1/2 a can of tomato paste, some chopped carrots, roasted red pepper, and roasted corn. For extra liquid I added two small cans of V8 and another whole can of chicken broth.
