BEAN AND BACON SOUP (6)

BEAN AND BACON SOUP (6)

Used 32 oz of broth, 3 16 oz cans of beans and turkey bacon. I also added a bit of potato flake to help with thickening, and about 2 tbsp of coconut milk to balance things out a bit. Turned out well - kids and wife all labeled it a "do-over" to put on our menu regularly! — TheFrenchKitchen 3/30/2014
Gluten Free Pizza Dough

Gluten Free Pizza Dough

Needs more flour, as stated. Used butter in place of shortening and added granulated garlic and onion powder. Pressed thin, this is really good. Made thicker, it might end up pretty dense. Will make again! 3/29/2014
Fuddruker's Hamburger Patties

Fuddruker's Hamburger Patties

Not bad. I used 3 lbs with the same spice measurements and they turned out well-seasoned, so I can see where some would consider them over-seasoned with just two pounds. I also toned back the cayenne. It is really easy to overdo, and several other reviews indicated it was a little hot. — wantsrest 7/4/2013

I posted this - good for holidays or any other time you want a crowd-pleasing breakfast. — TrueSpectre 12/29/2012

Olive Garden Style Zuppa Toscana Wedding Soup

Nailed this! I sliced my potatoes thin on a mandolin rather than cubing them, and halved the chicken broth like many others. Adding to my favorites now! — gbolton323 7/31/2012

Was a treat. Added diced tomatoes and a clove of garlic - no leftovers! — TheFrenchKitchen 5/19/2012
Pulled Pork Carnitas Style

Pulled Pork Carnitas Style

This is WONDERFUL. My coriander container was empty, so I didn't add that, but other than that I stuck to the original recipe. As Fuzzy said, it's easy and quick - actually cooked in the crockpot overnight, and then refrigerated for an even quicker meal the following evening. Just pulled it out, threw it on a pan and broiled it. 8 minutes to finish, and I chopped some tomato, onion and cilantro while it broiled. WIll make this one regularly. — FuzzySapiens 5/3/2012
Potato Kielbasa Skillet

Potato Kielbasa Skillet

I loved this, but my family wasn't as appreciative. The problem? Picky eaters don't like wilted greens. The sauce is wonderful, if a little heavy on the thyme. Next time I'll half that particular ingredient and dish up the family's servings before tossing in the spinach (although with so much good stuff to try on BigOven, there may not be a next time. We'll see...) — jen815 5/1/2012
Crockpot Beef Stroganoff

Crockpot Beef Stroganoff

Excellent. I was pretty skeptical about this one, even with all the positive reviews. Could something good really come from canned foods? ABSOLUTELY. Adding to favorites now - next time, I may include mushrooms. Perhaps canned, to stick with the theme! — achelian 4/30/2012
Cola Chicken

Cola Chicken

EXCELLENT. I used half ketchup and half BBQ like many others, but I also removed the chicken while the sauce thickened and threw it in my kitchenaid with the blade attachment for about 30 seconds - WONDERFUL shredded chicken sandwiches! 3/23/2012
