Chicken Pot Pie IX

Reviewed: Apr. 4, 2008
My family raved over this, and we aren't big pot pie fans. I used the suggestion to boil the chicken and veggies in chicken broth instead of water, and it was fabulous.

Slow Cooker Chicken Taco Soup

Reviewed: Apr. 4, 2008
This soup is really, really good as written. However, I would recommend using 3 chicken breast HALVES (instead of whole breasts) if you are looking for a soup consistency. I used three whole breasts (6 halves) and it turned out more like a chicken chili. It was still delicious, just very thick and hearty with very little broth.

Waffles I

Reviewed: Feb. 20, 2008
Would be five stars with some tweaks: I used 1 cup unbleached white flour, 3/4 cup whole wheat pastry flour, increased sugar to 2 Tb., and added 1/4 tsp. cinnamon. On a standard square waffle iron, I used 1 cup of batter per batch. Flash freeze on a pan for toaster waffles later in the week! :)

Restaurant-Style Buffalo Chicken Wings

Reviewed: Aug. 8, 2007
Amazing!!! My family thinks these taste just like the ones at Applebees. I doubled the recipe, but used 1/3 cup of butter instead of 1/2. In place of deep frying, I omitted the flour and baked them at 425 degrees for 45 minutes. I also used Frank's Red Hot sauce. Delicious!

Catherine's Spicy Chicken Soup

Reviewed: Jul. 29, 2007
I thought this was just OK. I'm kind of stumped at all of the 5-star ratings. I followed the recipe exactly as written, but used fresh chopped tomatoes and corn instead of canned. It was kind of bland and did not have *nearly* enough salt, even for my husband who doesn't like a lot. This could partially be my fault, because I didn't account for the fact that canned vegetables probably have more sodium and needed less salt in the original recipe. So if you use fresh veggies, you may need to add salt. It was definitely spicy, but just enough. If I make this again, I will use chicken breast w/ bone to make a more flavorful stock as well as some cumin in the soup. Mexican shredded cheese and tortilla chips go well with this. Update: Awesome when recipe is followed exactly (canned veggies instead of fresh).

Sarge's EZ Pulled Pork BBQ

Reviewed: Sep. 20, 2006
Very good! I added garlic powder when seasoning with salt and pepper, and used 1 tsp. liquid smoke. I also took the suggestion to serve with Sweet Baby Ray's BBQ sauce. I chopped the meat and put it back into the slowcooker with the leftover juices and bottle of BBQ sauce, but next time I will serve it immediately with the BBQ sauce on the side.

Chicken Scampi II

Reviewed: Sep. 13, 2006
Delicious and super easy! I added a little cracked black pepper, but made everything else as directed. Family raved over this, including picky kids! I made this with white rice, but will make fettuccini or linguini next time, as I think pasta will be a better pairing.

Charley's Slow Cooker Mexican Style Meat

Reviewed: Aug. 7, 2006
This is SO good! I skipped step one and just added all of the ingredients to the crockpot. The only extra thing I included was one beef bouillon cube. I shredded the roast about 2 hours before we were planning to eat and let it soak up the flavors. I must say, with all the ingredients, I was expecting a firey hot dish, but it really wasn't. Yes, it is spicy, but don't let the list of ingredients intimidate you, it's fantastic!

Pollo (Chicken) Fricassee from Puerto Rico

Reviewed: Aug. 4, 2006
This is a delicious, authentic Puerto Rican dish. The recipe uses fresh ingredients and native spices. My husband is Puerto Rican and LOVES this dish. It is FAR from bland (didn't quite understand that review). This is as authentic as it gets! I needed two pounds of chicken drumsticks, so I just doubled the Adobo and used an entire packet of Sazon. It was fantastic! I have never been able to cook Puerto Rican food like my husband does, due to the fact that most of their cooking is done by taste, not measurements (and I could never quite master that way of cooking, LOL). So thank you very much for posting a recipe that us "non-natives" can make!!! Delish!!!! 8-)

Taco Seasoning I

Reviewed: Jul. 9, 2006
Pretty good. It's tastes just like the packaged seasoning, but with kick. And as someone who loves spicy food, it was a LOT of kick. I prepared this using 1 lb. of ground beef, so next time I'll either use more meat or less seasoning. Definitely a great alternative if you are looking for the packaged seasoning taste.

Sharese's Spaghetti Salad

Reviewed: Jul. 3, 2006
Yum, yum and YUM!!! The only thing I changed was to use mini penne instead of spaghetti. I used the suggestion to use McCormick Salad Supreme as well. Absolutely delicious!!! I will never buy boxed pasta salad again! 8-)

Tangy Slow Cooker Pork Roast

Reviewed: Jun. 30, 2006
Very good. I used chicken broth instead of water and cider vinegar, but followed the rest of the recipe as written. The pork was PERFECT - tender and moist. Great over rice.

Chicken Florentine Casserole

Reviewed: Jun. 29, 2006
Pretty good. I'm not a big spinach fan, so next time I will use half of the spinach called for. After I baked the chicken, I cut it into large chunks before adding it to the dish. I would definitely use fresh bacon instead of bacon bits even though it will require a little extra time. Thanks for the recipe!

Burrito Pie

Reviewed: Jun. 29, 2006
This really makes a lot of food! I would rate this recipe as OK. I took the advice of others and added a packet of taco seasoning mix. The flavor of this dish was absolutely wonderful, but it didn't have a great texture. It sort of ended up looking like a pile of mush, BUT to be fair, the meat mixture tasted great. I think I would make this again, but I would substitute broken up taco shells or corn chips for the tortillas. I would probably also only use 1 can of the refried beans. Overall, a good recipe. Thanks! :)

Spicy Garlic Lime Chicken

Reviewed: Jun. 29, 2006
Very simple and very flavorful! I am a little paranoid about undercooked chicken, so I followed the recipe's instructions for cooking the chicken stovetop, and then put them in a baking dish (topped off with the pan drippings and covered with tin foil) and baked them at 375 for about 20 minutes. It was the most tender and moist chicken I've had in a really long time. I will definitely make this again!!!

Slow Cooker Italian Beef for Sandwiches

Reviewed: Jun. 23, 2006
This is yummy. The only thing I do differently is add a few forkfuls of jalapeno slices (from a jar) and a couple of beef bouillon cubes. I also use one thinly sliced onion instead of the onion salt. I shred the beef and then make sure it has plenty of time to sit in the slowcooker so the flavors can soak in. I serve this with Brownberry Sandwich buns and provolone cheese. Very good!
