Slow Cooker Ham and Beans

Reviewed: Mar. 13, 2011
I really didn't even want to give this one star, but did only because it was edible, just not palatable. My husband and I both did not finish one bowl of this and I am deleting from my recipe box. I think there was far too much brown sugar, it was way too sweet with no other flavor really. I even added more of each ingredient to try and make it taste better, with no luck. I am going to refrigerate it until tomorrow and taste again. Maybe it will be better the second day. I'm glad I made the cheddar biscuits that I did!

Cheddar Biscuit Cups

Reviewed: Mar. 13, 2011
These were very good! They were moist, yet held together well. I added about 1/2 cup of very finely chopped frozen broccoli that I thawed. I made them to go with a ham & Bean soup that was not good at all, so I was very happy these came out as they became the main dish. We will definitely make these again and again!

Chicken Noodle Casserole I

Reviewed: Mar. 8, 2011
This was very good and truly a comfort food. I followed the directions to a "T". My son and husband both scarfed this down with no complaints. The cracker topping was what really made this special -I could have eaten all of the topping no problem.

Chocolate Zucchini Cake IV

Reviewed: Feb. 21, 2011
While this is good, it's not the best I've ever had. It didn't seem as moist as I was hoping for, it has more of a very thick brownie consistency to it. The amount of chocolate is good and with zucchini in it I can tell myself it's good for me, too! I topped it with Perfect Cream Cheese Icing by Crystal R. and that put it at a 5-star rating! Definitely worth making and I will make it again, maybe just adding a tad more oil to the mixture, or maybe a little more milk.

Perfect Cream Cheese Frosting

Reviewed: Feb. 21, 2011
Crystal - this is an awesome cream cheese icing! I remembered you were in to cake baking & decorating so figured you would know what you were talking about! I didn't have margarine (I always only use butter) and it still tastes delicious and was easy to spread. I'd say I used a "small" 1/4 tsp. vanilla. This topped my chocolate zucchini cake perfectly!

Whole Wheat Beer Bread

Reviewed: Feb. 21, 2011
This was a good dense bread. It was just a little more dense than I or my husband cared for. I used a lager as that is what I had, but I think next time I'll use a darker, stout beer -it might give it a "richer" flavor.

Old-Fashioned Pink Lemonade

Reviewed: Feb. 21, 2011
My son is a huge pink lemonade fan, so I made this for him to try. He gave it 2 thumbs up! We didn't use quite 2 cups of sugar as he likes his less sweet. Sure hits the spot!

Avocado Fish Tacos

Reviewed: Feb. 15, 2011
I used a cole-slaw mix in place of the red cabbage. These were good - the avocados gave it a different twist. We used cod for our fish. We had margaritas to go with them.

Oysters Rockefeller

Reviewed: Feb. 15, 2011
We made these with fresh oysters from Chincoteague Island. Loved them! They were a little time-consuming, but worth it! I used a bigger than normal dash of hot sauce, but that's because I really like it.

Butternut Squash and Turkey Chili

Reviewed: Feb. 15, 2011
Different. I enjoyed it - my husband did not. I followed the recipe just as is. Next time I think I'll use more spices - it seemed just a tad bland.

Slow Cooker Rosemary and Red Pepper Chicken

Reviewed: Feb. 13, 2011
I made this for today's Sunday dinner as a last minute decision. It was a great decision! Last night plans were made for my daughter and parents to come over for dinner today. So, this morning as the pineapple upside down cake was in the oven I had to figure out what I could make. I did add a can of diced, Italian style tomatoes as others suggested, as well as fresh sliced mushrooms. I also did not have Italian sausage, but used Chorizo sausage instead. We used rotini pasta as that is all I had. This was very good. I did cook mine on high for 5 hours and my chicken was not dry at all. I will be making this again!

Good Dog Cookies

Reviewed: Feb. 2, 2011
Very easy to make, but I think the amount of oil used may be too much - it was awfully "oily" or "greasy" feeling. Also, the beef bouillon cubes adds an awful lot of salt to them. I also think they should have baked longer as they really aren't very crispy like a dog treat usually is. They did smell great while baking,though, and my dogs love them. I just think I'll probably stick with the pumpkin & peanut butter treats I normally make for them as they seem healthier to me.

Italian Wedding Cake Martini

Reviewed: Feb. 1, 2011
This was pretty good. We thought the pineapple juice was just a bit overpowering, but it didn't stop us from having 2 each! The second one was fantastic - we dropped a maraschino cherry into the glass with a tiny bit of the juice. We'll be having these again, wedding or no wedding!

Alfredo Sauce

Reviewed: Jan. 29, 2011
Very easy to make and tastes great! I made it just as is to use in a recipe that called for a jar of alfredo sauce. I have only ever bought jarred alfredo sauce twice and didn't care for the taste of it either time. Now I know I'll just make it myself. Thanks for a great, easy recipe.

Pineapple Upside-Down Cake VII

Reviewed: Jan. 10, 2011
I made this to take to a friend's house for dessert. It was a HUGE hit! I had never made a pineapple upside down cake before,but you can bet I'll be making more of them. I poured some coconut rum over the pineapple slices and let soak a while, then I used the rum/pineapple juice as most of my liquid for the cake; using about 1/4 c. water only. This cake was moist yet fluffy and the brown sugar made a nice crunchy topping. I was a little nervous about getting the cake out of my iron skillet, but it popped right out.

Home-Style Scalloped Potatoes

Reviewed: Dec. 31, 2010
Made these the other night and my son and husband both agreed they were way better than my normal go-to recipe! I will be using this recipe from here on out! Originally I was going to have to make them without onions because I didn't have any, but we ended up at the store so I picked up an onion. They would have been good without, too,I'm sure! Thank you for a top-rate scalloped potato recipe!

Green Salad with Cranberry Vinaigrette

Reviewed: Dec. 25, 2010
This was my second try at a cranberry vinaigrette and I was much more satisfied with this. My nephew proclaimed it "Good enough to eat!". The salad was good. I used Feta cheese and added a diced red pear to it as well. There wasn't much left over.

Fall Salad with Cranberry Vinaigrette

Reviewed: Dec. 25, 2010
I only got as far as making the cranberry vinaigrette. There is far too much vinegar in this, that is all you can smell and taste. I started over with another recipe.

Gingerbread Biscotti

Reviewed: Dec. 21, 2010
Excellent! I took the advice of some other reviewers and used butter instead of oil. I was going to drizzle white chocolate over it, but I scorched the chocolate while melting it, so I just made a vanilla glaze and drizzled that instead. They are so tasty! These are going to go so well with coffee, tea, or hot chocolate. I've never made biscotti before so I am pleased how well this came out for me. Thank you for this easy recipe!
