Notes about Recipes in this book

  • Cinnamon-apple oatmeal

    • PennyG on November 28, 2013

      I liked this! It made enough for me to take to work three times one week.

  • Greek chicken with feta

    • Nancith on October 10, 2014

      Cheated quite a bit on this recipe: prepared on stovetop not crockpot, used tomato puree instead of diced tomatoes, no tomato paste, and added a bit of white wine. Still came up with a fragrant dish, relatively easy to fix, and quite tasty.

  • Marinara and mozzarella lasagna

    • Nancith on April 21, 2016

      This is a quick, simple slow cooker recipe that is satisfying & tastes good. Since there are so few ingredients, I would recommend a good quality jarred marinara for the best flavor. I used fresh mozzarella which was satisfyingly chewy. Definitely a good recipe when you are pinched for time.

  • Espresso-braised pot roast with balsamic vinegar

    • Nancith on December 16, 2016

      Son & husband gave this 5 stars. It certainly had a fantastic aroma. Very simple to prepare. Watch your slow cooker if it runs hot as mine does--even after turning it down to the warming setting several times throughout the cooking period, the meat became slightly dried out. But it was falling-apart tender, & the juices/onions made a lovely sauce.

  • Pork chops with sauerkraut and new potatoes

    • Nancith on April 30, 2015

      This dish was loved by husband and son--pork was tender, kraut was flavorful but not overpowering. Easy to prepare, put in slow cooker, and let it cook.

  • M's turkey taco salad

    • Nancith on September 16, 2014

      Last time I made this it was a hit. Not so much this time--the difference seemed to be using restaurant-style salsa which just sort of dissolved into the meat & made the mixture very watery. Definitely stick with a thick, chunky-style salsa.

  • Turkey thights, acorn squash, and apples

    • wkhull on January 11, 2021

      Bland and healthy. Unpleasant having to pick the peel off the cooked squash. Would peel another type of squash or use delicata. I think to eek out more flavor, this dish would have benefited from keeping the turkey skin on, seasoning, searing, followed by sauteeing onions, deglazing, and adding everything to the slow cooker.
