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.

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • 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.
