Swiss Cheese and Bacon Scalloped Potatoes
Very good. Made it exactly as written the first time with delicious results. Added a small clove of minced garlic and used Gruyere instead of Swiss cheese the second time - to die for. Could have eaten the whole pan myself.

Meat-Lover's Slow Cooker Spaghetti Sauce
Very nice meat sauce. I used fresh garlic and skipped the powder but otherwise followed the recipe. Definitely a keeper. I think this would be great "puttanesca style" with the addition of a couple of anchovies, capers and red pepper. To those "foodies" complaining of the addition of sugar: sugar is universally used to balance the acidity in tomato-based sauces and adds only 50 calories to the whole sauce. Not nearly enough to get upset about.

Hot Crab Dip II
This is a crab dip for people who don't have access to fresh crab or those who don't like crab. Made it with the real thing for my grandkids and served it with tortilla chips. They ate it but complained because it wasn't my usual Chesapeake Bay style crab dip. Good for what it is, but is definitely not crab dip by Maryland standards.
