Pinterest Recipe Review Slow Cooker Edition


Like I promised here are my reviews for the slow cooker recipes found off of Pinterest

Slow Cooker BBQ Sliders

I made this dish for a potluck at work and I didn't bring a drop home, so you you it was good. The aroma this gave off was so enticing. I'm sure this would be a hit at any potluck. 

I give this recipe 4 out of 5 pins

Slow Cooker Coconut Ginger Chicken 
Found HERE

To quote Mike "It tasted very healthy" aka it was a little bit bland, I think that was due to all the coconut milk it calls for. I will defiantly make this again but next time I will play around with it. I think I will add less coconut milk and more of the ginger and spices it calls for.

Slow Cooker Honey Sesame Chicken
Found HERE

This one was a major success. This is meal where you really want to savor every bite because it is just so delicious. The honey was not over powering but gave it just a gentle touch of sweetness. Mike went on and on about how much he loved it. He even showed his love by eating two huge plate fulls. Personally I think this is one of the best slow cooker meals I have made.

Slow Cooker Santa fe Chicken

This recipe is a nice way to spicy things up in the chicken dinner department. It is a really simple recipe, in which you have the freedom to adjust the seasoning to your own taste. I added a bunch of different veggies then it calls for but I'm always trying to "trick" Mike into eating more veggies then he normally would. This really is a delightful healthy and tasty meal for anyone.

Sadly this recipe did not go over as well as I thought it would. When I combined the soy sauce and peanut butter the smell seem to bother me and I just could not get past it. The texture also didn't go over to well. I feel kind of bad for not liking it because when I read over the comments of other people who made it, they seem to rave about how good it was. If you have made this or something similar and enjoyed it, I would love to hear how you made it.

First off I would like to state that this is not as good as my Mother-in-Law's bolognese sauce but pretty darn close. This recipe make your taste buds dance. Now I get a little depressed when I make pasta and due to time/laziness use sauce from a jar and it just is never as good. There were only two things were I didn't follow the recipe. First I used white grape juice instead of white wine and a didn't use nutmeg just because I didn't have any.

I give this recipe 4 1/2 out of 5 pins, just because like I said its not as good as my Mother-in-Law's.

I hope you have found this somewhat helpful. I would like to hear of you wonderful Pinterest finds.
