Easy Slow Cooker Pork Chops

Reviewed: Oct. 30, 2006
I added choppped red pepper, a little salsa and sliced zucchini and about a 1/2 cup of water for a better gravy. The veggies and gravy was very good, but the meat was disappointingly bland. I don't know why, but I felt the meat needed something more. The next day I made a pot of rice to go with the veggies and gravy and it was great.

Shepherd's Pie

Reviewed: May 22, 2006
I've been looking for something like this for quite a while. I liked the taste of this, but I thought it was a bit too soupy, not as firm as I would have liked. First of all, I added chopped onions, garlic and celery to the beef as I was browning it. I also added some oregano and Worchestershire sauce. I cooked it down until it was nearly dry before adding only one can of cream of mushroom soup. I thought a second can would make it too wet and I'm glad I did. Also, I added a little cream to the potatoes because I thought they were too dry. I also over salted a little. But all in all, it was pretty good and quite filling.

Roasted Pork Loin

Reviewed: May 16, 2006
Of all the recipes I've rated here, this is the first one I've given 5 stars to. It's easy, relatively quick (you can go do other things while it's roasting) and comes out delicious. My leftovers were gone by the next morning. I left out the wine, but plain water worked just fine. I added some chopped onions and mushrooms to the roast's casserole dish then reduced the liquid in the pan while the roast rested, then added a little corn starch/water mixture to thicken. Very good.

Busy Day Chicken Rice Casserole

Reviewed: May 9, 2006
A little salty for my taste, but not bad. It's certainly quick and easy. I used Cream of Broccoli soup, which worked very well with a side dish of california blend vegetables. This could easily be adapted for any meat.

Baked Ziti I

Reviewed: Apr. 19, 2006
Very filling and rich. I used penne because I couldn't find ziti. Also I messed up the layering order. But it still came out fine.

Iowa Pork Steak

Reviewed: Apr. 5, 2006
I modified this after a first try making it according to directions. While both turned out pretty good, my modification included sauteeing the onion first then doing the whole thing on the stove top. I think that worked better.

Pretty good. Would have liked a little more sauce to put over the pasta.

Round Steak and Gravy II

Reviewed: Mar. 10, 2006
It is easy and the taste is pretty good, but the gravy was thin and too much. Some pieces of meat at top dried out a bit. Needs work.

Egg and Sausage Casserole

Reviewed: Feb. 12, 2006
Pretty good. Certainly easy and quick. Could have used more eggs, less cheese and oregano. Also would have benefitted from some sauteed onions and maybe a touch of milk. I thought the top browned too quickly, but that could have been my oven. Overall, pretty good but not the best.

Debdoozie's Blue Ribbon Chili

Reviewed: Feb. 4, 2006
A good basic recipe with plenty of room for one's personal adjustments to taste. I picked this out because I hadn't made chili in a long time and wasn't sure I knew how anymore. This gave me an excellent starting point with which I could then add to it to make it my own.

Spaghetti with Garlic and Basil

Reviewed: Feb. 4, 2006
A classic dish. But it needs to be paired with something green and some more protein to be a well-rounded meal.

Dijon-Tarragon Cream Chicken

Reviewed: Feb. 4, 2006
Very good. Worked just fine with dried tarragon (just add a little more). Sauce thickened nicely, would not have minded a little more to spoon over veggies on the side. This is really a 4-1/2 star recipe, maybe even 4-3/4.

Bub Bub's Hearty Mush

Reviewed: Feb. 4, 2006
I was surprised that this dish went over as well as it did. This would be a good basic idea for leftovers. You could use almost any combination of vegetables and meat, heat 'em up and put over rice and have a decent, quick meal. If I do this again, I'll stir fry the whole thing in the wok with some soy sauce without any additional salt.
