Slow Cooker Lentil and Ham Soup

Reviewed: Oct. 21, 2012
Made it almost exactly, but used more lentils and water as the reviews suggested. I also used leftover pork loin from last night's dinner instead of ham. Sausage would be great, too. Thank you, this was delicious! :)

Sue's Taco Salad

Reviewed: Aug. 21, 2012
I followed the directions for the ground beef pretty much to a T, except that I added in a drained can of Rotel. I also left all the parts of the salad separate to keep it from getting soggy. We used spinach mix for the greens, then topped with meat mixture, cheese and chips. I mixed a very small amount of ranch dressing with some salsa for mine and my boyfriend did the same but with sour cream. I think the way we had it made this a pretty healthy meal. I will definitely make again.

Beef-Stuffed Potatoes

Reviewed: Jul. 3, 2012
I wanted to try this recipe, but I realized at the last minute I had to wrong kind of potatoes, and my skins were way too thin to hold the filling. I decided at the last minute to follow the recipe almost perfectly- except I mashed the whole potato, skin and all, then added the meat and chilies. I didn't change the filling except that I added taco seasoning. After I mixed up the meat and mashed potatoes, I put it in a casserole dish, covered it with cheese, and baked it at 350 for 15 minutes. It was like a spicy shepherd's pie. I will definitely make this again. Maybe next time I'll cook it the right way. Either way, this is pretty good. :)

Easy and Delicious Mexican Pork Chops

Reviewed: Jun. 12, 2012
WARNING! If you use half a cup of picante sauce, this is very spicy! I loveee spicy food, and it was almost too intense for me. If you're sensitive to spice, consider using a mild picante sauce or salsa instead. That aside, this was a delicious, easy meal. I substituted condensed tomato soup for the tomato sauce because I realized too late we were out. I also didn't brown my chops first because they were really thin and it would've dried them out. Everything else I followed to a T. I sprinkled green onion over the cheese before serving, and added sour cream to make the heat less intense. This was so good, and my boyfriend asked me to add it to the rotation... But to make it less spicy next time due to his acid reflux ;)

Homemade Black Bean Veggie Burgers

Reviewed: May 11, 2012
The flavor was good, but the consistency was really gross. Crispy on the outside, and mushy on the inside. I followed the recipe to a T, so I don't think I did anything wrong. A squishy burger is just not for me.

Chicken and Sausage with Bowties

Reviewed: May 10, 2012
This was delicious! I changed a few things because I was too lazy to go to the store. All I had on hand was a can Italian stewed tomatoes, so I put them in the blender, but left them slightly chunky for texture. I didn't use any oil since my sausage produces enough on its own. I sauteed the sausage for a minute, then added the garlic and a little leftover chicken from last nights' dinner. I poured in the sauce and followed the rest of the directions almost to a T. The only complaint I have is completely my own fault- All I had on hand was this really cheap, gross red wine. It gave the sauce a really weird flavor, so I threw in about a half a cup of Ragu and a pinch of sugar. I added cornstarch to it as the other reviewers suggested to make the sauce thicker. We ate it over Linguine noodles. I can't wait to make this again! My boyfriend raved. Thank you!

Cheapskate Stew

Reviewed: Apr. 12, 2012
Originally I followed this recipe to a T, but upon tasting, I changed quite a few things to improve it. I used at least twice as much Italian seasoning as it called for (I confess that after a while I stopped measuring) and added more water to it. I used the Italian Seasoning I from this site; it gave the stew a nice herb-y flavor, but it was still very bland. Instead of pasta, I used left-over white rice I'd cooked in chicken broth. It added some nice flavor, but sucked up all the liquid and gave the stew an odd, grainy texture. Next time I'll use pasta as the recipe states. It was still bland, however, so I added a can of diced tomatoes and plenty of salt. (Around 2 tbsp) I added cheese and hot sauce to mine at the table. That helped a lot! Next time I'll use spicy Rotel with chilies and pasta instead of rice. I will make again, but without my adjustments I would rate this recipe maybe 2-3 stars. Thanks for the idea though, this can be a great recipe if you play with it some.

Spicy Enchilada Chicken Stack

Reviewed: Mar. 29, 2012
Sometimes there can be too much liquid in the chicken mixture when it comes time to load the filling into the tortillas. When this happens, I usually simmer uncovered instead of with a lid and use a slotted spoon to move the chicken to the tortilla stack. The liquid left-over in the skillet is really flavorful, so sometimes I pour a little in the rice :) Speaking of rice, this recipe would also be good if you just poured the mixture over some rice and ate it that way instead of on tortillas. A good idea for when you don't have any tortillas and don't want to go to the store, but you're craving this recipe.

Slow Cooked Pork Barbeque

Reviewed: Mar. 28, 2012
So easy and so good! I used Sweet Baby Ray's Honey Chipoltle BBQ sauce, threw in some diced onion and a little garlic powder. I can't believe that from so few ingredients came such a yummy meal! I shredded the meat an hour before it was done and left it in there the last hour to soak up all the sauce. Thank you for this awesome recipe! My company was impressed, and there were lots of leftovers even though everyone had seconds. :) I can't wait to make this again!

Sausage and Bean Slow Cooker Dinner

Reviewed: Mar. 23, 2012
I really liked this recipe! I changed a few ingredients just because I didn't have them. I was out of garbanzo beans, so I used great northern beans instead and omitted the tomato paste because I didn't have that either. I used hot smoked sausage, threw in a dash of garlic, some cayenne and some chilies for extra spice as well as 2 cups of beef stock. Otherwise, I followed the recipe. At the last minute I decided to throw in some rotini, so I'm glad I used extra broth. I thought this was soooooo tasty, but my boyfriend said it was "missing something". Next time I'll try it with the garbanzo beans, I think they would've been better. Either way, I loved it. This is a very flexible recipe and even though it doesn't look like a lot of food, it's very filling. :)

Becca's Taco Soup

Reviewed: Mar. 17, 2012
I substituted the ground beef with ground turkey to make this healthier, and man was it good! I changed a few other things. (not to be a jerk, but because I'm out of a few ingredients) I used 1 can of reduced sodium condensed tomato soup, 1 8oz can of tomato sauce, 1 can of Rotel with chilies, and added 2 minced garlic cloves. The Rotel didn't make it spicy enough for us (my family loves hot food!) so I also added about a tsp of hot sauce. Yum! I will definitely be making this again and again :)

Enchilada Stack

Reviewed: Jan. 11, 2012
Like many of the other reviewers, I did not cook this in the microwave. I browned the ground beef on the stove with onion, garlic, and some diced green bell pepper. I also added about half a teaspoon of ground cumin, an extra clove of garlic, and a pinch of cilantro. Once the ground beef was no longer pink, I layered all of the ingredients onto tortillas as directed, and baked in the oven @350 for about 20 mins. This was very tasty and filling, and the leftovers are good warmed up the next day. We topped with sour cream and hot sauce. Update: I have made this with chicken too, and if you add a can of drained diced tomatoes with chilies, as well as follow my adjustments, this is a really good recipe! :)

Moroccan Chicken Stew

Reviewed: Dec. 4, 2011
I followed this recipe almost exactly and it was really good! The only thing I will change next time is I will double the seasonings. It was slightly bland, but had a wonderful aroma and the chicken was perfect. Definitely don't leave out the raisins- they make the stew that much better. I also used Muir Glen's organic tomato soup instead of Campbells. It's tastier and healthier :) will be making this again for sure!

Pork Chop Skillet Meal

Reviewed: Nov. 28, 2011
I hate to be that annoying person who changes everything about a recipe and writes a review, but my boyfriend HATES tomatoes, so I had to leave them out. I added a can of mixed veggies instead and kept everything else exactly the same. It was still really good, though I bet the tomatoes would've made it better. I'm mostly writing this review to tell you how versatile this recipe is. Changing the vegetables in this recipe doesn't mean you're not gonna have a yummy meal. The pork chops were a little dry, that's the only complaint I have, though it's possible that it was my fault for buying such thin cuts :)

Baked Lemon Chicken

Reviewed: Oct. 11, 2011
I didn't have any lemon, so I used lime juice instead. It was sooo good! I had trouble with the breading being too soggy (as did other reviewers), but I'm sure with the modified directions in some of the reviews it would've been perfect :)

Pork Chops and French Onion Rice

Reviewed: Jul. 28, 2011
Very tasty and easy to make. I used reduced sodium soup because another review said it was too salty with the regular. I was out of thyme but it was fine without. The only thing I'll do differently next time I make it is double the soup, water and rice. I used 6 very small chops and it still barely covered all of them in liquid. After I ate and my boyfriend had two helpings almost all of the rice and soup was gone. If you don't cook for someone who's a big eater this probably won't be necessary. The pork chops themselves were a little tough, but flavorful. I'll definitely cook this easy meal again. Frozen dinner rolls baked in the oven were perfect for scraping up the leftover soup in the bowl.
