Not much to say, except that I love to be with my family and friends. I'm a stay at home mom and I need some serious help with my domestic skills!
Cake Mix Cookies VIII
Rating: Unrated
rebelmom's rating

I like this recipe because you can do so many versions of it. I read the other reviews regarding the use of 2 tbs oil and 1 tsp vanilla extract and decided to trust them and add the ingredients. The cookies came out very moist and I will try to do another batch w/o oil to see if it firms the cookies up. They were delicious and I am going to make some red velvet cookies with white chocolate chips for Valentine's Day.

Slow Cooker Oatmeal

I love how this turned out! I added 2 cups of water and 2 cups of low fat milk to 1 cup of Quaker oats. I then chopped up some green apples, threw in some raisins and added a tsp of cinnamon. I cooked it in the crockpot overnight on the low setting and in the morning I threw in 1/4 cup brown sugar, bananas and some honey. Yum!!! There was some burnt oatmeal on the sides but nothing was crispy or bad tasting.

Chocolate-Covered Strawberries

I did not have any shortening so I just melted a bag of Giradhelli's milk chocolate chips in the microwave. I inserted a toothpick thru the top of the strawberry and dipped them in the chocolate. I put them in the freezer for a few minutes after dipping to set the chocolate and they came out beautifully!

Slow-Cooker Barbecue Ribs

***note*** I did NOT use the sauce portion of this recipe (quite frankly, I was feeling lazy) so I just used 2 bottles of BBQ sauce. After the ribs were done in the slow cooker I threw them in a 350 degree oven to harden the glaze on them. The ribs were fabulous and every one loved them!

This was pretty good, but a little too mushy of a coating (even though I put it in the broiler for the last 5 min of cooking time). The taste was nice though.

Very yummy....I will definetly make again. I did season the chicken with paprika (because when I think of deviled ANYTHING I think of paprika) but other than that I followed the recipe exactly as it's written. Very good and the husband liked it too!

Glazed Carrots

Maybe just a little TOO flavorful for my taste, but not bad. I think I'll just stick to honey or brown sugar when I glaze my carrots.

this was good, but a little too much onion. Next time I will use 1/4 of an onion and onion powder. Otherwise the flavor was delish!

Ver good, but for some reason the next day leftovers were not very tasty. Definetly better fresh and right out of the crockpot.

very good.....I cut the veggies into smaller pieces to help them cook faster, but otherwise followed the instructions exactly. Next time I will add another cream soup to make more gravy.

Chocolate Pudding Cake IV

I made the mistake of trying to alter the ingredients per other reviewer's remarks. It came out too dry. Next time I will follow the recipe as it's written instead.
