Slow Cooker Western Omelet

Reviewed: Jul. 31, 2008
after reading this recipe 5 years ago, I suggested to our chamber of commerce director we do this for our food booth at the annual Senior Pro Rodeo only make it as a filling for breakfast burritos. Our booth is there only for the participants. We have to have the coffee hot and donuts fresh at 7:30 in the morning, because they are getting ready to go through their trials for the nights line-up. I found this and tweaked it for 50 servings, substituted cooked, ground sausage for ham, nixed the bell pepper, bought flour tortillas,salsa and extra shredded cheese. We cook this overnight at home, bring the crockpot to the food booth and assemble to make breakfast burritos. We take a tortilla, a decent serving of the omelet, an extra sprinkle of cheese, wrap up individually in foil, and lay them in another crockpot that has a damp towel at the bottom. the damp towel keeps everything steamy hot. as they are bought, they put their own salsa on. We made them in 25 serving batches.(Two smaller crockpots) word spread quickly we had something better than donuts. we have sold out every year after the 1st year (once they found out) we also found the second morning (after the first nights show, afterwards they went into town for the dance and drank alot) we sold out faster on the second morning than the first morning. so we didn't make as much the first morning, and had more for the second morning. it is not labor intensive, and we 3 volunteers get together the night before the rodeo

Slow Cooker Lasagna

Reviewed: Jan. 16, 2012
5 STARS for CONCEPT!!!Not sure why I had not thought of this myself!!! Great way to make ahead for a busy day and have a great meal! I read this recipe and wanted to try it, thinking i had all the ingredients, so planned on it. Then found the lasagna noodles I had were No Boil. Wasn't sure how it would work. Used them anyway. I have a HUGE crockpot and there is just 2 of us, so I often make smaller versions of recipes in Pyrex or stoneware casseroles that fit inside my crockpot. This was the case again, so made a smaller version in a smaller casserole and placed inside of crockpot. worrying about the no boil noodles, i poured some water in the crockpot until it was about halfway up the casserole dish, a baine marie so to speak, and set it for 4 hours. PERFECT!!!! I used homemade marinara, and had some turkey italian sausage that needed to be used up. Added a can of mushrooms. YUM!! Will try again because I LOVE using my crockpot!!!

Cherry Almond Coffeecake

Reviewed: Feb. 18, 2007
I made this more like a cake, but served it for an office morning get together - they ate it all! I used a 9 x 13 pan, but it took more like 45 minutes to bake. I kept testing. Then I made it with a carrot cake mix with apple pie topping. Still did the glaze, but used finely chopped walnuts. The whole thing did not make it to the office. It was first reviewed by my resident taster, my husband,sometime between midnight and 7 a.m.! He obviously approved, because 4 pieces were missing.

Chicken Enchiladas: Ready When You Are

Reviewed: Mar. 17, 2011
This is not a menu. It's a recipe with the "oh Duh" condiment. A menu should have a complete balanced meal. My additions to this would be refried beans and steamed rice - beans from a can, rice cooking while i made the enchiladas - if it were a weekday. I'd have some extra flour tortillas warming to toasty for dessert, spread with a little butter or cream cheese and sprinkled with cinnamon sugar I haven't actually tried the recipe here, I have one burned into my memory, but the whole meal has to have more balance.

Pecan Pie Bars II

Reviewed: Dec. 30, 2007
Easy and tasty! I brought it for Thanksgiving. We had several pumpkin pies and apple pies. Having the choice of a "bite" of pecan pie was a great hit after a huge meal, but wouldn't be Thanksgiving without it flavor! I got many raves. Brought it to our office potluck just before Christmas and there was nothing left after 20 minutes!

Mesclun and Mango Salad with Ginger Carrot Dressing

Reviewed: Apr. 1, 2005
The dressing forthis was so easy - elements I always have in my kitchen - the mango added nice color and flavor. I used spinach from a bag. still really good. added some romaine for crunch. the dressing and mango are the punch, any greens would be honored to be adorned with that mix!

Easy Crescent Muffuletta

Reviewed: Jul. 19, 2011
RENAME THIS RECIPE tasty , easy, but really not fair calling it muffaletta to those that have not experienced muffaletta. Muffaletta is about the olive salad mingling with the meats and cheeses. Play fair Pillsbury.

Flathead Cherry Compote

Reviewed: Feb. 13, 2011
flathead cherries are a local favorite. I am often torn as to just eating them fresh since we can only savor them maybe 2 months out of the year or buying enough at peak to freeze or preserve. This is a great recipe for fresh, but I just tried it with some cherries I had fresh frozen. Summer in the middle of February. GREAT!

Zucchini Cobbler

Reviewed: Sep. 15, 2011
This was fantabulous! I had been asking for zucchini from friends and relatives and got given 6 huge ones! I made bread and butter pickles out of 2 of them, shredded and froze another, then found this recipe. No one figured out it was anythin out of the ordinary for cobbler. Since my zukes were large, I peeled, seeded, quartered longways and sliced thinly. Looked like small granny smiths!!!! The lemon juice is the key. I added oats to my crust also since I love the crunch. Will definitely make again and try using brown sugar for the filling.

Curried Butternut Squash and Pear Soup

Reviewed: Oct. 12, 2011
This was so simple and delicious! I had bought a butternut squash, never having cooked one before, to give me inspiration. Next day, a friend called and said she had a sack full ofpears that she would never use and would I want them? Bingo - Hubby was a bit skeptical thnking it would taste bland, but really good flavor. I took the advice of others and roasted the squash, made it easier and tastier (smpled the roasted squash as I was scooping it out!)I did not have any heavy whipping cream, but had a half block of cream cheese. Read a couple other recipes and found one that used cream cheese for thickening, so I addede that. NIce creaminess, color.I served this with the Real N'Awlans Muffaletta on this site. Soup and Sandwich and darn good!

Eggs Benedict with Salmon

Reviewed: Dec. 12, 2009
Very nice play on Eggs Benedict. I used dark rye because I had it. Any bread or muffin or biscuit would have been fine. The sauce is a keeper- I liked the original recipe but can't follow a recipe without making it mine. Added a bit more dijon and put the capers in the sauce. Can hardly wait for a brunch to serve company!

Amy's Lavender Lemonade

Reviewed: Sep. 15, 2009
I love lavender anything though had not thought too much about drinking it, but I have been making a honey lemonade for years. So I used honey instead of sugar once I finished steeping the lavender. Equal parts lemon juice and honey. The lavender was such a nice new flavor. Very refreshing, almost decadent, one of those summer things that builds pleasant memories.

Sloppy Joes II

Reviewed: Feb. 3, 2006
this is a classic!!! been making it for 20+ years with these flavors! For vegetarians or budget stretchers, try using TVP in place of or stretching the meal. (Been doing it for years and no one complained) Be sure to reconstitute the TVP with veg broth or beef broth, then add to the simmering part. TVP absorbs too much of the moisture and sauce by itself. However, if you want a firmer mix,and are using TVP, go less on the broth added to the TVP then add to the sauce. TVP is a wonderful stretcher - and it absorbs the liquids it is in to give a ground meat texture

Seven Layer Taco Dip

Reviewed: Jan. 16, 2012
Had to come up with inexpensive but tasty munchies for 200 people for a friends 80th birthday party and made this - quadrupled the recipe, using the "Refried Beans without the Refry" from this site. Also made salsa since several of us putting the party together had tomatoes from the garden. Made it for a Christmas party and Chamber of Commerce After Hours gathering according to recipe, it is economical, feeds a lot of people and is just great!!!!!! As one friend said, tasting it for the first time "it's one of those tastes that has so many flavors you just want to keep eating it!" After making this so many times, a few easy tips. I used greek yogurt instead of sour cream. It's a great replacement for anything calling for sour cream. Rotel Diced tomatoes with chilies (Mild)(or your grocery store House brand) is an inexpensive replacement for Salsa, if you stock up on it as I do when its on sale. Zip it up with some bottled hot sauce. I have also used canned diced tomatoes, canned chilies and some of the taco seasoning for the salsa layer. I bought some ready made guacamole for a "special" party and layered it in. I don't think anyone was counting the layers!!

Cheese Cake Cups

Reviewed: Oct. 12, 2011
Killer easy and delicious! I added a tablespoon of lemon juice for extra bite. The wafers I bought seemes so small inthe muffin cups, so I crushed them slightly to cover the bottom - more than one to a cup. It all baked well and held together and great just plain! Toppings could make endless delicious. I used homemade raspberry jam and made a quick white chocolate sauce (chips and milk inthe micro) Very good! Saving this for party ideas!!

Pizza Dough I

Reviewed: Sep. 26, 2011
Easy, time saving or for a cook like me that decides what to make 10 minutes before she wants to eat =PERFECT! If you are accustomed to making your dough and going thru the 2 rises, and cannot eat anything but, don't try this recipe. It's tasty, but it is not the dough you might be accustomed to - but it is a keeper if you are short on time and pizza is on the menu. it's going into my recipe box!!!!

Chilled Lemonade Dessert

Reviewed: Jul. 6, 2013
This was SO easy and tasty. Great for a hot summer night when someone else in the household ate all the ice cream and forgot to replace it. Grandkids loved it. used the rest of lemonade can to make lemonade with 1/3 less water. I grated the lemon rind, but, will probably leave it out next time and use as a garnish instead. The creamy texture with the chewy bits didn't work for me. May try similar concocotions with other frozenjuice blends and jellos.

Exquisite Pizza Sauce

Reviewed: Jan. 7, 2012
Perfect for our tastes! Paired with the Whole Wheat Honey crust from this site. We are on a low sodium diet but love homemade pizza. This sauce worked great. Used no salt added paste, omitted the anchovy paste ( didn't have any & too much salt anyway) Added salt substitute to taste. Made it in the morning, let the flavors medl until dinner time. It's a keeper in my book!
