Reviewed Crock Pot Whole Chicken

2 days ago in on

I can';t even say how many times I';ve made this recipe and it ALWAYS turns out absolutely perfect. The chicken literally falls off the bone and melts in your mouth. I';ve become a vegetarian since the first time I made this, but I still make it for DH for a dinner, then vacuum seal shredded leftovers in one cup portions to use in cas...

I';m giving this 4 stars as the recipe is written. BUT...if I was doing it over again, I would omit the cheese. I tasted this before adding the cheese and I was like "WOW" this is going to be great! Then I added the prescribed amount of cheddar and it was just "meh..."
I will also use leftover chicken next time instead of the beef. ...

Reviewed Spinach and Mushroom Enchiladas With Cilantro Cream Sauce

Nov 30, 2014 in on

First, this dish took me WAY longer than the estimated 35 minutes. NBD. Second, this dish makes an insane amount of cream sauce and not nearly enough filling for 12 enchiladas, even with the addition of about a cup of leftover roasted chicken (the only edit I made to the recipe for the carnivore DH - my "half" was original to the recipe). It made...

These are a perfect use for those zucchinis you find in your garden that have somehow grown to the size of a canoe. I have made these twice now - first time as written, second time with twice the amount of Old Bay - they needed more to suit my taste. I shred and freeze a lot of zucchini - I';m happy to have a recipe to use instead of zucchini...

The mini bells in my garden were VERY productive this year and I was happy to find this recipe! I sliced them in half (top to bottom) thinking they would make nice "cups" to hold the cheese mix without too much spilling out as it melted. And it worked! Giving four stars because although the flavor was great, I think I will add a little cream chee...

I made these as directed, and used Fleur de Sel after they had cooled completely. My only suggestion is to pop the finished pan of brownies in the freezer for 10-15 minutes before cutting. I had a really hard time cutting them so they looked nice enough (the topping really gets globbed up on your knife) to bring somewhere that I wanted to impress...

Whoa! Super easy! Pretty fast! Tasty! What more could you ask for? I made this for my brother and DH and they both ate all of it. Served with an Italian pasta salad, this made for a nice early spring dinner!"

Apr 23, 2014 in on

This recipe was fabulous! I took the suggestions from other reviewers and used baby bella mushrooms, and substituted fresh garlic for the garlic salt. I accidentally forgot to drizzle the melted butter over the stuffed mushrooms, but they still turned out great! I also used an Italian cheese blend instead of just Parmesan. I will definitely be m...

Found this in an old RR cookbook and despite the mediocre reviews on this site, I made it anyway. Boy, am I glad I did! Made it as written except that I used all stock instead of stock and water. It was rich and flavorful! I would say, however, that an entire pound of spinach is too much. I used a regular bag of ready-to-eat baby spinach (about 9oz)...

I made a half recipe of this as it was just my husband and myself. This was SO incredibly RICH that we could've gotten away with a quarter recipe and we'd have been completely satisfied. I used Vermont white cheddar, Boar's Head smoked Gruyere, and we had it with crab cakes and a nice green salad. I'm vegetarian but I can appreciate that my husband...

Amazing vegetarian dish. Made this for Meatless Monday and even the carnivorous husband didn't miss the meat! The chipotle can make it pretty spicy so go easy if you're sensitive. I usually make this exactly as the recipe is written and we simply love it. Please, don't skip out on the avocado cream - it's wonderful!
