Slow Cooker Beef Stew I
I would have given this 5 stars as the taste was delicious and the sauce it created was the perfect consistency. The meat nearly disintegrated, but may have been my fault as the pieces were small and I perhaps cooked it too long.

Eggplant Parmesan II
OMG....over the top delish! Don't bother salting the eggplant as some have suggested and save yourself an unnecessary step.I followed the recipe exactly, used jarred marinara sauce and everything was perfect. Cooked exactly as stated. Some reviewers complained of soggy eggplant. If you don't salt it and use the sauce very sparingly you will have perfect eggplant. I did remove the skins as i have an aversion to them...otherwise followed it EXACTLY...sprinkled a little chopped fresh parsley in bottom of dish and on top. Did not layer all over the dish, just made individual stacks which I think prevents soggy cooking too.
