Slow Cooker Spicy Black-Eyed Peas

Reviewed: Oct. 20, 2007
There's a thin line between watery & brothy. I like my black-eyes brothy (thick). I soaked mine for 6 hrs. Cooked them on high 6 1/2 hours in the crock-pot. Used 1 can of chicken broth in place of the cube (don't like cubes). Walked out to my garden for 3 different kinds of hot peppers. Left out the salt, I don't believe you need it with both ham & bacon. Hubbie said "Best beans ever".

Roasted Garlic Lemon Broccoli

Reviewed: Jul. 4, 2008
I can't quit eating these! I had no idea you could cook broccoli this way. It is SO good! Thanks! Update since some found this salty - I never use salt in any recipe (except breadmaker). These are really tasty. If you fear the lemon might be too strong, use less the first time.

Hot Toddy

Reviewed: Dec. 20, 2007
I also made it with a tea bag. Added more water. Didn't have the stick cinnamon or cloves so just used a bit of cinnamon sprinkled on top.

Delicious Chicken Casserole

Reviewed: Jan. 30, 2007
Really good comfort food. I followed the recipe. I agree with other reviewers that it needs more rice. I was happy that I was able to freeze some of the chicken broth. Way better than canned!

Unbelievable Spinach Calzones

Reviewed: Feb. 26, 2007
I made one as stated in the recipe so that I could review it honestly (except using a can of Pizza Dough). The rest we had "build your own Calzone" night. I had sauteed mushrooms, canadian bacon, and Italian sausage. For us the meat one was better. I have enough of everything to make myself lunch tomorrow. I will spread the top with garlic butter next time before cooking (the top was hard & dry). Also, mine did not need the whole cooking time. Really easy quick supper.

Ultimate Potato Soup

Reviewed: Dec. 15, 2007
It's cold & windy today, perfect for a delicous soup! I like carrots in my potato soup so I left out the celery. Used whole milk. Added lots of garlic. Only used 1 can of chicken broth & no bouillon (family doesn't care for salt very much). It's perfect!

Best London Broil Ever!

Reviewed: Feb. 16, 2007
You really need to like tomatoes for this recipe (which I do)! My kids however are a different story. I took another reviewers suggestion & made a heavy duty foil tent placing the ingredients inside & closing it really well (leave room for steam to circulate). I also cooked it at 325. Very moist & tender. I used petite diced tomatoes w/green chiles. When serving slice it as thin as you can. Really good! Made great sandwiches the next day.

Really Basic Peanut Butter Cookies

Reviewed: Jan. 17, 2007
I am giving this a 5 for several reasons: 1. I only had 1 egg 2. So easy 3. Very versatile 4. I love peanut butter! If you don't love pb these are not for you. The first 9 small cookies I made following recipe. My hub & kids liked, the next 9 I mixed in choco chips, we loved, the last 9 I mixed in even more choco chips & walnuts. Delicious. It's an ice/snow day here in Rowlett, we didn't have school so I am looking for ways to keep the house warm with the oven going all day & entertain everyone with good food. Thanks for sharing the recipe.

Oatmeal Peanut Butter Cookies III

Reviewed: Jan. 20, 2007
Everyone loved these. They are different than your ordinary pb cookie. My 2nd batch came out too crispy so next time I will go with 8-9 minutes and chill my dough. I cut down a little bit on the sugars. I didn't have heavy cream so I sub. cream cheese & used less powdered sugar. Delicious! I also only had old fashioned oats but I don't think you can tell the difference. Thanks for sharing!

Ken's Texas Chili

Reviewed: Nov. 2, 2007
I have lived in Texas all of my 44 years & don't know how you can make chili without real onions, garlic or without any kind of tomato base. We used tomato sauce in place of 1 can of beef broth. Chopped up a large onion & cooked with ground beef. Used only 1 can of jalapeno pintos & 1 can of regular. Cooked it way longer than the 30 minutes. End result was delish.

Cooked Pumpkin

Reviewed: Dec. 24, 2007
Decided to throw a pumpkin I had left over from Halloween into the oven whole for 1 hour at 300 degrees & it worked perfectly. No worries about too much water. Cut it, peeled the outer skin, peeled away seeds & pith and threw the rest into my food processor to puree. Turned out great!

Sweet Potato Chili

Reviewed: Oct. 7, 2012
My whole family loved it! I did use all ground beef. I put the ground beef in raw with step one, but only cooked on high about an hour, then switched to low. Left out the cinnamon (just now realized that). Had to sub a garden fresh bell pepper for the celery. I also didn't add the water, my slow cooker seems to make a lot of water on its own. I only had diced tomatoes so I subbed the Black Beans for a can of chili beans (gave me the chili seasonings that the chili tomatoes would have). We love flavor, so my pinches were probably more like spoonfuls (except no salt, we have to eat low sodium). I also forgot the corn. Delish!! I can't wait for the leftovers. Today I'm going to eat it more like a dip on garden veggie crackers.

Homemade Butter

Reviewed: Jan. 11, 2008
Way more stars if it were allowed! When I think of all the money I have wasted buying butter . . . when I could have been making it myself. I used organic heavy cream & this was so easy & super delicious! I am going to make it next time with my kids so they can see the process.

Rice & Beans (Haitian Style)

Reviewed: Feb. 27, 2007
This is so good! I don't usually like Red Beans & Rice but I really like this. My local Walmart didn't have the scotch bonnet, he said to substitute a habanero, but I settled for a jalapeno, sliced & seeded and thrown in the pot. It is the perfect heat for us. I did soak my beans first (habit). This recipe was nice because I actually cooked the beans yesterday, put in fridge & finished tonight. Husband thought it was too "clovey" so I will use less next time.

Cinnamon-Peach Cottage Cheese Pancakes

Reviewed: Sep. 19, 2009
Yum, I love finding healthier breakfasts for my diabetic husband. I get tired of making him Steel Cut Oatmeal. This was fantastic! I subbed Splenda for the sugar & added in some ground up flax. I also ran out of butter so used Olive Oil. I made his pecan & used mixed fruit in mine. We ate it with Sugar Free Syrup & it was fantastic!

Cream Cheese Kolacky

Reviewed: Dec. 12, 2007
Wow. I tasted the raw dough & it was not good at all. Put it in the freezer & did not have high hopes for a very good cookie. Let it thaw a little. Decided I was tired so I put powdered sugar in a large baggie, rolled dough into balls, threw them into the sugar, put the balls on a cookie sheet, smashed with my finger, added peach preserves to the middle of the cookie & wallaa . . . very tasty treat!

Lorene's Slow Cooker Potato Soup

Reviewed: Jan. 20, 2012
I'm kind of perplexed by this recipe. It's not what I think of when I think of Potato Soup. I only cooked mine about 3 1/2 hours on high & the potatoes are mushy & I have a very vintage slow cooker (they don't cook as hot as newer ones). I didn't have any celery so I used celery flakes. I do like dill, but didn't use the full amount. I used low sodium vegetable broth. I have to admit that I do like the broth. After taking a picture of the finished product, I'm going to go tweak it by mashing it up, adding a bit of milk, garlic and pepper.
