Crock Pot Bacon Ranch Chicken

Crock Pot Bacon Ranch Chicken

I would definitely make this again - my whole family loved it. I doubled the recipe and made it a little healthier using the 97% fat-free Campbell's soup, light sour cream and Ronzoni Smart Choice pasta. We also didn't use as much bacon - didn't add it in the crockpot, but sprinkled a smaller amount as a garnish before serving. This lower-fat version still tasted decadent. This is very similar to a Betty Crocker recipe, but their uses 1/2 cup water and 1/2 teaspoon pepper in addition to the ingredients above. — sandiburrell 3/17/2014
Almond Crescents

Almond Crescents

These cookies taste great and the crescent shape is easier than you would think to make. We added a little extra almond extract for added flavor. Thanks for posting this, it will become a holiday tradition for my family. — shelbywright 12/23/2013
Parmesan Garlic Pork Chops

Parmesan Garlic Pork Chops

These had great flavor and were very moist. I flipped them half way through cooking, but they didn't brown. Next time I will try broiling for a few minutes. — KimberlyinMN 11/5/2013
Ziti with Honey Mustard Salmon

Ziti with Honey Mustard Salmon

Watch the salmon carefully if using the broiler instead of roasting to make sure it doesn't burn due to the honey so close to the heating element. Also I use 1 1/2 Tablespoons of Dijon since we like a stronger flavor. — smobrien 11/4/2013
Nutella No-Bake Bars

Nutella No-Bake Bars

I've never had a case where these didn't harden properly. I normally use the quick cooking oats. I would suggest doing the same and maybe boiling for more than a minute. For best results, they do need to be chilled in the refrigerator (if you can resist trying to eat them right away). I hope this helps. — smobrien 7/23/2013

Bacon-Cheese Pull-Aparts

Sorry the cheese wasn't showing on the ingredient list for you. I use 3/4 cup to one cup of cheese and added it to the ingredients. Hope this helps. — smobrien 7/23/2013
Creme Brulee Cheesecake Bars

Creme Brulee Cheesecake Bars

I made this with chopped Heaths bars on top. The chocolate in the Heath bars added a nice flavor and creamy texture to the topping. — Love7721 2/26/2013
Peanut Butter Rice Krispie Treats

These were a big hit made per the recipe. Next time I might add some peanuts or add chocolate drizzle to take them to the next level. Thanks for the recipe! — sgrishka 11/20/2012

Chimichurri Sauce

Chimichurri Sauce

This is a delicious recipe that can be used over steak, chicken or salmon. I found that making half a recipe was enough for us since it's so flavorful. I hand-chopped the herbs and it worked out fine. Thanks for the recipe! — blueskier 8/18/2012

I would have never guessed that this could be so good on a hot day. It was perfect - thanks. 6/4/2012
Super Sweet Corn Bread

Super Sweet Corn Bread

This was a delicious and moist corn bread recipe that we will make often. It's easy enough to make that there's no reason to use a boxed mix again. Thanks for the recipe. — matthew-182 5/3/2012
Maple Oatmeal Muffins

Maple Oatmeal Muffins

These muffins are healthy, dense and moist. They could be a little sweeter or have a little more maple flavor for our taste, but I would definitely make them again. Definitely a great breakfast treat for anyone who likes oatmeal cookies. 4/26/2012

To add more s'more flavor, sprinkle with crushed graham cracker crumbs just after topping with the chocolate bark. — hchavez 1/23/2012
Easy Crockpot Lasagna

Easy Crockpot Lasagna

I'm not sure what's happening when you view the ingredient list. I just looked again and I still see it as the first ingredient (just before onion). Anyway, I use 1 pound of ground beef. — smobrien 1/23/2012
Cookies 'n' Cream Cupcakes

Cookies 'n' Cream Cupcakes

These cupcakes were really good. I needed to make 1 1/2 batches of frosting to really cover the cupcakes, then added mini Oreo cookies to the top for the perfect finish. Thanks for the great recipe. — Kimography 1/15/2012
