Finnish Turnips

Reviewed: Jun. 18, 2011
I found this dish to be lacking character. To start with, it is too sweet. If you remove the brown sugar, you basically have a turnip omlette with some breadcrumbs thrown in. It is very rich and very unhealthy, and if I'm going to eat something like that, I want it to taste better than this! It needs some spices (nutmeg and ginger maybe?), and one review suggested mashing the turnips. Maybe that would help too. If I were to make this again, I might try those modifications, but I probably won't make it again.

Basil Tomato Soup

Reviewed: Jul. 9, 2011
This was a great recipe. I made a lowfat version though, using evaporated milk instead of whipping cream and 1/2 the amount of margarine. I also, like other reviewers, used fresh tomatoes, added salt, pepper, onions, and garlic. Wonderful soup with some crusty bread!

Slow Cooker Mashed Potatoes

Reviewed: Nov. 26, 2011
I didn't care for this recipe, but iit wasn't horrible. Although the sour cream and cream cheese did make for creamy potatoes, I found the flavors to be overpowering. I prefer to taste the potato flavor too!

Ghirardelli® Triple Chocolate Truffle Cake

Reviewed: Nov. 26, 2011
Absolutely fantastic! I made it exactly as written. Super rich and chocolately - I had to take some to the neighbors so I wouldn't eat it all!

Zesty Slow Cooker Chicken Barbecue

Reviewed: May 8, 2012
Great flavors. I have made this exactly according to recipe several times, and my whole family loves it. We put it over buns, and it is great and easy. I love that you can throw in frozen chicken.

Enchiladas Suizas

Reviewed: Dec. 1, 2012
This was fantastic. I have made this 3 times now, and it is great! Like others, I wanted to cut the calories a bit, so I used evaporated milk instead of cream, and I fried the tortillas in cooking spray. I also used reduced fat cream cheese (with some cumin) to mix with the chicken instead of shredded cheese. Absolutely delicious. I really recommend taking the time to made the sauce rather than just using a store-bought salsa verde. There is a huge difference! Thanks for sharing this recipe!

Creamy Au Gratin Potatoes

Reviewed: Dec. 29, 2012
This recipe is BLAND! It is a good starter, but it needs some flavor. I added 1T of Thyme and cut the amount of onions in half, and it made a huge difference. Good base recipe though.
