Slow Cooker Beef Stew IV
I've made this stew several times now, tweaking it a little as I've learned what to expect. As written, the recipe is very good, and the gravy has a nice not-too-thick, not-too-thin consistency. The aroma it creates while simmering is fabulous! However, my family found the flavor a bit bland. I've taken the advice of some of the other reviewers, adding beef bullion to the water/onion soup mixture and adding garlic and thyme. I've also added a little salt and more wine (whatever dry red wine I've had on hand). The most recent time I made this stew I added a can of petite diced tomatoes and four fresh zuchinni squash, cubed, toward the end of the cooking process - maybe an hour before taking it up, which gave the dish a boost in flavor and texture. I'll continue to make small alterations, but I will definately use this recipe as a starting point for stew from now on.

Stuffed Jalapeno Firecrackers
I've made these several times to the specifications in the recipe. YUM! MY only advice would be to wear gloves when handling the raw jalapenos if you have sensitive skin. The fist time I did not wear gloves, and my hands burned for about 12 hours afterward. (Used a rub of damp sugar to alleviate the burn...made my hands soft, too.) Other than that, these are awesome!

Slow Cooker Green Beans, Ham and Potatoes
This dish was good, but not as good as I had hoped and expected. It was easy to prepare, especially since I took the advice of some of the other reviewers and just threw it all into the crock pot. But having done that, I can see now why it might turn out better if done in stages. In the time it took to cook the beans to some degree of tenderness (about 6 hours at a medium temperature), my potatoes over-cooked to the point that they were falling apart. I used some leftover ham, and it, too, over-cooked, becoming slightly rubbery and turning an unappetizing shade of grey. Also, I thought the recipe needed 2 or 3 times the amount of seasoning recommended. Will I make this again? Maybe...but if I do I'll make it on the stove where I can have more control over what cooks for how long.
