Slow Cooker Turkey Breast

Reviewed: Jan. 4, 2014
I didn't use this recipe to cook my turkey, but I felt this deserved 5 stars because you gave me confidence to try to cook my turkey breast in the crock pot, and it was the best thing I have ever done!! I used an over night marinade, but the best part of this method is no babysitting the turkey in the oven, no wondering if it is overcooked/undercooked, no trying to coordinate all the sides to come out warm and ready to serve on time with the turkey. In fact, I also used crock pots for the mashed potatoes, stuffing, and gravy. Serving and cleanup was a breeze, plus using crocks freed up my oven for the casserole and sweet potatoes and rolls. It saved me a ton of time slaving in the kitchen so I could do other things. Thank so much for this great idea!!

Marinated Turkey Breast

Reviewed: Jan. 4, 2014
I will never cook turkey traditionally again! This is the best recipe for holiday turkey EVER. I marinated the turkey breast overnight and cooked it in the crockpot in the morning. I didn't use cloves because I don't like them, and I still put butter slices under the skin because some habits are hard to break. Cooking in the crockpot? It was so easy! No babysitting for hours, no worrying if it was undercooked or overcooked, no worrying about when to get the sides started so everything finished at once. And the flavor? SPECTACULAR! The soy sauce acts as the brine, and the seasonings flavor the meat all the way through. The turkey comes out moist, flavorful, perfectly done. Mine even browned, but that might be because I used a cast aluminum crock, not a ceramic one. Cooking the turkey via crockpot inspired me to keep the mashed potatoes, gravy, and stuffing heating in their own crocks, which freed up the oven (and my sanity) for everything else that needed to get done. Thank you for this recipe!

Poblano Chile Enchiladas a la Gringa

Reviewed: Nov. 22, 2012
This is the closest recipe I have found to my favorite enchiladas at our local restaurant! I will definitely make it again. For my personal convenience and flavor, I will use 4 cans of chilis and include cheese inside the tortilla with the chicken (leftover chicken would also be perfect). I happened to have pepper jack cheese and the addition of the jalepeno flavored cheese was phenomenol. I also baked the dish because it felt like a natural step--and I was also a little nervous about the green sauce. I shouldn't have been though. The creamy, chili flavor was outstanding! As a matter of fact, I was wishing there was more sauce, and then wondered if baking had made the dish drier than it should have been. I think next time I will just broil the cheese to brown it, as opposed to baking it. Thank you for this delicious recipe!! I just happened to be making this recipe two days before Thanksgiving, and will use the "Turkey Brine" recipe here by Sheri Gailey. The brine for the turkey recipe starts out the same way as the enchilada recipe, so after I removed the liquid I needed for the enchilada's, I added sea salt to the remaining broth to use for the turkey. Double bonus!

Apple Tapioca Pudding

Reviewed: Feb. 19, 2012
I gave it a 4 because the flavor was really good, but like the other reviewer, my pudding was more like apple soup in consistency. It could have been my crock pot: I used the kind that doesn't have a heat setting, so maybe I didn't cook it long enough. I wonder if using large pearl tapioca would make this even more interesting?

Black Bean Salad

Reviewed: Feb. 5, 2012
This recipe creates a lot of salad! I made it to take to a party and served with tortilla chips. I personally couldn't stop eating it. VERY healthy, lots of flavors, textures. Love the cilantro.

Whole Grain Breakfast Cookies

Reviewed: Feb. 5, 2012
Yes, these came out a bit crumbly, but I did not make them to replace regular chocolate chip cookies. I am a single working mom with four kids and wanted something healthy they could grab for breakfast that wasn't loaded with the sugar and artificial stuff they put in store bought breakfast cookies. I made a double batch and stored the cookies in my freezer in a plastic container, which helped the cookies keep from falling apart. Initially, my children were skeptical and hesitant, and, while none of them would admit to loving them, the cookies certainly disappeared awfully fast! I will definitely make again. Thank you for sharing this recipe!

Cabbage Fat-Burning Soup

Reviewed: Feb. 5, 2012
This has five stars because it is so healthy. It makes a tremendous amount of soup, so I put individual servings into freezer bags and froze it for later. I have made this twice and added garlic and hot pepper the second time to season it up a bit.

Slow Cooker Lemon Garlic Chicken II

Reviewed: Feb. 5, 2012
This is actually a very good chicken recipe--lots of flavor and a bit different than the usual. Four stars is simply because the lemony flavor did not appeal to my family as an entree, but I can definitely see using this chicken in other recipes, such as chicken salad.

Eggplant Casserole

Reviewed: Dec. 30, 2011
I've made this twice now. Both times, without the beef. It's probably good with the beef, but I wanted to taste the eggplant more. I follow the rest of the recipe, except saute the veggies in butter (Smart Balance). My other two additions are mushrooms (to replace the meat and cuz I love them), and garlic powder, because I love garlic. The breadcrumb mixture is the coup de gras, as it compliments the flavors and adds a little texture. Love it!

Chicken with Rice and Gravy

Reviewed: Oct. 30, 2010
I love chicken cooked this way! I used Smart Balance instead of butter, and I used instant potatoes because my kids prefer them to rice. The gravy turned out fabulous, but I didn't make enough of it. Can't wait to make it again!!

My Mom's Good Old Potato Salad

Reviewed: Oct. 30, 2010
Generally, I am a colossal failure at potato salad. I just can't seem to get the flavors right. This recipe, however was a winner!! Easy and it tastes great....and I'm not even a big fan of sweet pickles. Not sure if it made a difference or not, but I boiled potatoes and eggs yesterday and refrigerated them until I was ready to make the salad today. I also used mayo, not Hellman's. Now that I have a great base, I feel more confident to try other flavors, like dill pickles, etc. Very happy, thank you!

Baked Cider Doughnuts

Reviewed: Mar. 23, 2006
I was so hopeful--but they don't resemble anything close to doughnuts. Perhaps they should be under a whole wheat muffin category?
