Slow Cooker Italian Beef for Sandwiches
My family loved this! My only modifications were to use 2 packets of dressing mix, 2 cups of reduced sodium beef broth in place of 2 of the cups of water, and omit the salt. The beef had a really nice flavor, great on sandwiches or even by itself.

Amazing Pork Tenderloin in the Slow Cooker
This made a delicious gravy! I used a pork roast (top loin), not a tenderloin. (Tenderloins are expensive and really not necessary for a slow cooker recipe.) Followed the recipe exactly and took another poster's suggestion to add a corn starch/water mixture to the crock after removing the meat to thicken the gravy. The meat was very tender & the gravy was the best part!

Strawberry Spinach Salad I
Delicious! I made a few changes to the dressing based on other reviews: toasted the sesame seeds first to make them more flavorful; omitted the poppy seeds because I didn't have any on hand; used balsamic instead of white vinegar; reduced the sugar to about a tablespoon. The strawberries are naturally sweet on their own, balsamic vinegar is sweeter than white vinegar, and I also added some pecans that I carmelized in a hot pan with a sprinkle of sugar, so with all that sweetness, I didn't want the dressing to be too sugary-sweet. For the salad, I used baby spinach (I think it tastes better in salads than regular spinach leaves and it also looks prettier), sliced strawberries, blue cheese crumbles, and the pecans. The dark green of the spinach and the bright red of the strawberries makes for such a nice presentation. Brought it to a dinner party & it was a huge hit!
