Baked Onion Dip I

Reviewed: Mar. 4, 2006
Like many reviewers, I substituted 8oz of cream cheese for 1 c. of mayo. I used fresh shredded parm from our deli, but I found the dish very salty. I wonder if just using Kraft grated parmesan would be less salty. Next time I might try substituting some swiss or provolone for half of the parmesan. I liked this and while I wouldn't say it was a huge hit at our party, it was mostly gone. I will make this again, but I'll make a few changes to try to control the saltiness.

Sweet Grilled Cheese

Reviewed: Mar. 4, 2006
Ok, I have to admit that I showed this recipe to my husband so we could make fun of it. Little did I know he'd be intrigued! He made it for lunch today and really enjoyed it. I tasted it, and it wasn't bad although I did stick with a plain ol' grilled cheese for me. Only change he made was to use a medium sharp cheddar instead of american cheese. Thanks for the recipe, and sorry I doubted you!

Slow Cooker Sausage with Sauce

Reviewed: Feb. 27, 2006
This recipe is really dependent on the sausage and sauce used, so make sure you get something you like. As other reviewers mentioned, it was really saucy...you could probably double the sausage, onion, and pepper without doubling the sauce. I served this over rice, but I think I'll cut up the leftover sausage tomorrow and serve it over spaghetti instead as it really seemed more like a meaty pasta sauce to me. The taste was good and I'll probably make this again. Thanks for the recipe!

Light, Crisp Waffles

Reviewed: Feb. 25, 2006
I waffled (ha, ha) back and forth between giving this 4 and 5 stars. It's a 4.5 star recipe. Very light and crispy, and certainly my new favorite waffle, which is why I ultimately gave it 5 stars. It's the delicate texture of the waffle, not at all heavy, which really makes this recipe stand out. But the flavor, while good, is not phenominal. Next time I make this, I'll probably add cinnamon and maybe some banana or blue berries. Thanks for the recipe!

Simple Garbanzos

Reviewed: Feb. 23, 2006
I love garbanzos, I love peas; this was a perfect recipe for me! Delicious! Some minor adjustments: I doubled the peas to 1/2 cup, and reduced the olive oil to 4 T. In addition to tasting wonderful, the salad looked beautiful as well, and I think it would make a nice side dish for a summer bbq. Of course, with all the garlic and onions, I should probably put a bowl of mints right next to it! Thanks!

Baked Ziti I

Reviewed: Feb. 23, 2006
WOW! Really outstanding. My first thought was "Ziti with sour cream???" followed by "Ziti without ricotta???" Well, I'm glad I followed this recipe since it was the best ziti I've ever had. My husband can't stop raving about it! A few notes: I used 2 9x9 pans (1 to eat today, 1 to freeze). I had lots of unused ziti as I was assembling...probably only needed to cook 3/4 of the box. I don't know if my pans weren't deep enough, but I just couldn't fit any more ziti in. I did use all the sauce, though, and it didn't seem overly saucy. I liked the sauce to ziti ratio using less ziti. Also, I used 8 oz of mozzerella and provolone, since that was the size of the packages I bought. You can never have too much cheese! Thanks, yummy, yummy recipe!

A Nice Slow-Cooked Pork

Reviewed: Feb. 23, 2006
Very tender, fall apart pork. I used 2 cans of chicken broth instead of the vegetable broth, and just a splash of sherry. It was still really liquid-y, so I thickened it to make a gravy. The meat was so tender it literally fell apart, so I shredded it. I served it over egg noodles, which I think was a mistake. If I make it again, I'll probably skip thickening the sauce, and then serve it with rice instead of egg noodles. Thanks!

Slow Cooker Beef Vegetable Soup

Reviewed: Feb. 22, 2006
My husband loved this soup, and it sure was easy to make. My only complaint is that I didn't think it tasted all that much different than canned soup from the supermarket. I'll probably only make this again if my husband requests it, which I'm sure he will since he was such a fan.

Baked White Bean and Rosemary Spread

Reviewed: Feb. 7, 2006
First I should note that I used pinto beans (substituted as the recipe suggested) as I couldn't find Great Northern beans at the supermarket. Otherwise, I followed the recipe exactly. I found the dip to smell too strongly of vinegar, and taste strongly of rosemary. It was also dry and never became bubbly. It wasn't inedible, it just wasn't really good, either. I won't be making this recipe again.

Shepherd's Pie Daddy's Way

Reviewed: Feb. 7, 2006
This recipe was a success...both my husband and I enjoyed it. I used cheddar cheese instead of American and added some sauteed mushrooms to the meat. Next time, my husband asked me to add more vegetables, so I think I'll try some carrots and peas. Also, I put too much mashed potatoes on top and it bubbled over, making a mess out of my oven, but I'm pretty sure that was my own fault for using 5 rather large potatoes. Next time I'll make sure to put a cookie sheet under it, though! Yummy!

Easy and Delicious Chicken

Reviewed: Feb. 5, 2006
I'd only give this recipe 3 stars for when I seved it over egg noodles. It was ok, but not great. But, the leftovers were phenominal: I used the chicken to fill corn tortillas which I then covered with a quick sour cream, mushroom, and spinach sauce. I baked it for about 20 minutes at 350, and it was super. This was a very good chicken recipe to use for as a base for Mexican-type chicken in sour cream sauce recipes.

Cabbage Roll Casserole

Reviewed: Feb. 5, 2006
Much easier (and just as good) as cabbage rolls! I made this with ground turkey and it turned out fine. The recipe is huge; I made a half recipe and it filled a 9 x 13 pan and fed 4 hungry adults with plenty leftover.

Easy Cheesy Chicken I

Reviewed: Feb. 5, 2006
This was a good recipe, but not great. Easy and cheesy, as advertised. But, it was fairly plain. I made it exactly according to the directions and I think I'll need to jazz it up a bit if I make it again.

Slow Cooker Chicken and Dumplings

Reviewed: Feb. 5, 2006
Very good, simple recipe. As other reviews suggested, I used chicken broth instead of water. I shredded the chicken before adding the biscuits (only 15 oz...that was all I had and it was more than enough biscuits). One important note is that it takes 1.5 to 2 hours for the biscuits to cook! The recipe is a bit plain, but still tasty and there's lots of room to adapt it to the tastes of whoever is eating.

Slow Cooker Beef Stroganoff I

Reviewed: Jan. 31, 2006
This is an easy and really delicious recipe. I didn't change a thing. I'm embarrassed to say that my husband and I ate nearly the whole pot in one sitting. I better double it next time so we can have some leftovers! Also, I'll probably add some fresh mushrooms next time since we're both big mushroom fans. But, the recipe is definitely a success as is!
