Country Style Green Beans with Red Potatoes
I think it needed more seasoning. I tasted it as it cooked. And, I ended up adding more pepper, seasoning salt and a tad bit of cayenne pepper, for a smidgen of spiciness. We don't eat pork, and I didn't have any smoked turkey parts. So, I added some chicken bouillon cubes to the water. It tasted good. Also, I used fresh ingredients (potatoes, beans, garlic cloves, onion), since I'm trying to get away from cooking with jarred/canned/processed foods. Overall, it was a good recipe. I'm adding it to my repertoire and look forward to making it again.

Chicken Marsala
My husband (who is not a big fan of mushrooms or Italian food, in general) absolutely LOVED this dish. I took several notes from previous reviewers and made a few changes. I completely omitted the Sherry (didn't see a need for it alongside the Marsala). Added 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder and lessened the salt to 1/4 teaspoon. Increased the Marsala wine to 1 cup and mixed it with 1 can of cream of mushroom soup to thicken the sauce (to go over my pasta). After browning the chicken, I removed it from the skillet and sauteed the mushrooms and a couple of gloves of minced garlic, and then returned the chicken to the skillet to simmer. If you want a milder alcohol taste, try adding 1-2 tablespoons of chicken broth. It helped. And, it turned out delicious!!!

Slow Cooker Chicken and Dumplings
Added carrots, celery, onions, seasonings. Used one 12 oz can of Pillsbury biscuits to make the dumplings. Also used chicken broth in place of the water. Next time, I would only use one 5-6 oz can of biscuits, because there were too many dumplings for our taste. Also, I think I would add additional veggies, like corn and/or peas.
