Awesome Slow Cooker Pot Roast
I only had one can of cream of mushroom on hand, so I used the empty soup can, and substituted beef broth. Added rosemary, a touch of merlot, cracked peppercorns, cut back on the dry onion soup mix to use real onions, parsley, and garlic...cooked on medium, for 9hrs. It was fantastic!

Magic Peanut Butter Middles
great flavor, but a bit dry...I don't know how to fix that. I followed the recipe to the letter, and only baked the cookies for 7min. I think I would bake them for even less time if I made them again. It's hard to say when every oven is different. Watch them carefully, and I am sure you will get a great cookie!

Kielbasa Pasta Casserole
Of course I changed this recipe to coordinate with what I had in the house, and my experience as a personal chef...Reduce (Rigatoni) pasta to 3/4 lb. 1. I used beef polish sausage, and fried it sans the vegetable oil (it has it's own fat to fry in) 3. I then added to the sausage 1 clove of garlic, small onion (chopped finely), small amt. of pepper for taste, parsley, pinch of crushed red pepper and cooked for 5min. I then added 1 jar of spaghetti sauce plus 1 4oz can tomato sauce, and brought to a slight which time I added 10 small frozen meatballs. Simmered for 15min stirring often. Cut the meatballs in half, and mixed with pasta in 8 by 11 glass . I added a dusting of italian style breadcrumbs, a sprinkling of cheese, and topped with italian pepperoni. Cooked uncovered for 25 min checking often to ensure that it did not dry out. There were no leftovers, and that is saying something in this family. This is an excellent starter recipe. Tweak it to your liking!
