Shepherd's Pie VI
Very good, once a few changes are made. First, as others have suggested, I added 1/4 cup of Worcestershire sauce to the meat along with 2 cloves of minced garlic, however, i added it, AFTER I drained the meat. Also, I added one bag of frozen, mixed veggies and placed them directly on top of the meat mixture in the baking dish. I did not mix carrots with the mashed potatoes, I did however use instant because we prefer them to be lump free. GREAT recipe! Everyone always begs for more!!!

Slow Cooker Chicken and Dumplings
Very good and simple recipe. I give it a four because I made some changes for it to be a complete 5!! I added a 1/2 tsp of garlic powder, 1/4 tsp of parsley, salt and pepper to taste. and used organic chicken broth in place of water and one can of cream of chicken, and one of cream of celery, as other users suggested. Also, I added one bag of FROZEN mixed veggies (corn, beans and carrots)along with three celery stalks with the leaves (which I removed before eating) I added frozen veggies, because they are fresher than canned and maintain a very nice consistency when it is time to eat. Last, and perhaps most importantly, when there is about 30 minutes left of cooking time, I added my own biscuits. The first time I made the recipe with the refrigerator biscuits, and they were not the consistency of the traditional dumplings in my mother's soup. Therefore, I mixed 2 cups of bisquick with 1/3 cup of milk. The dumplings and soup turned out GREAT!!! With these alterations, this is definitely one that will keep them coming back for seconds and thirds!!!

Zucchini Quiche
Great recipe, once some key elements are changed. First, instead of 1 cup of biscuit making mix, I used 1 cup of the small package of garlic, cheddar bisquik mix. This adds a wonderful cheesy, garlicy flavor. Also, instead of slicing the zucchini into rounds, I diced it into chunks, this way it cuts nicely but still gives a great consistency to the mix, and I used 2 instead of the 1 that was suggested. , lastly, I doubled the amount of onion and diced it, instead of grating so that it doesn't lose it's texture. One thing that is really delicious (if you're a veggie lover) is to grate one yellow squash, plus one carrot into the recipe. This not only adds some wonderful color, but it's a great way to get more veggies in.
